  • It was such a wonderful experience shopping at Beautiful Brides. Rebecca was a wonderful consultant who helped me find the perfect dress, even though I didn't come in to the store with that vision. Check them out. Selections are unique and reasonably priced for the bridal market!

  • Beautiful Brides and Formals did an amazing job helping me purchase my wedding dress! They are super friendly, attentive, and really listen to everything that you are looking for in a dress. Great prices!! I had a great experience with them and would recommend them to anyone that is searching for the perfect dress. They also helped my girls with bridesmaids dresses, and we found the perfect dresses! They made this part of the wedding planning so much fun and easygoing. Thank you Beautiful Brides!!! I appreciate all of your help!!!

  • They were my first and only stop for trying on wedding dresses. They took my ideas and then provided dresses based on them. As I gave feedback, they were great about giving new suggestions and thinking on their feet.

  • I live in Milwaukee and came to Madison just to visit friends. We ended up booking an appointment at Beautiful Brides so they could look at dresses with me. I WAS NOT expecting to find a gown, much less buy it that day! But from the moment I walked in to the store I felt so comfortable. We were warmly greeted and allowed to look through all their gowns (they have a lot!) I had been to several other shops around the Milwaukee area and hadn't found "the one". After trying on several, the woman who was dressing me asked if it was ok if she suggested a gown for me to try on. As soon as I put it on, my friends and I started to cry. It was a dress I would have never picked myself. The woman pulled out veils, headpieces, and jewelry (like I said earlier- I had been all over and NO store had anywhere near the selection of jewelry that Beautiful Brides has- they have a TON!) My friends (2 of which were bridesmaids) tried on gowns too and they found a maid gown they both loved. N... Read more

  • I found my BEAUTIFUL dress here &I absolutely love it - however the experience I had at Beautiful Brides was less-than-ideal. To start, my mom & I went dress shopping (1st time looking at all) & BB was the last place we had gone that day. The prior places allowed photographs to be taken of the gowns & that was a WONDERFUL way for me to see/think about how the dress looked on me - but photos were not allowed until after the purchase at BB :(. They also have a $100 discount if you buy your dress on the first viewing - so I just felt very pressured to get it right away rather than being able to look at it/think it over like I would have liked. After purchasing my dress in December, I needed to pay a $100 express delivery fee for June delivery (September wedding). The sample size fit me perfectly, so I ordered my dress in the same size, Once my dress arrived, I went to try it on to see how it fit after 6 months of diet/exercise. When the attendant was zipping me up in it - the zipper broke... Read more

  • I bought my wedding dress from Beautiful Brides. I loved my dress and it was within my budget so ultimately I was really happy with the result. But I should note that overall I felt their staff tried to hard to up-sell me while I was there. I know it's to be expected but it was a bit much since I knew exactly what I wanted. They also were not clear about how long it would take for my dress to arrive. I paid express shipping to have my dress arrive in "late April/early May" according to the sales woman. It was very stressful when my dress did not arrive until July about a month before my wedding. I had to call several times since they were not very responsive and I was also planning my wedding from out-of-state so this mess up added a lot of unnecessary stress.

  • Beautiful Brides were great to work with and had a great selection of bigger sizes. I couldn't have asked for better service and my dress was amazing and I never have seen anything like it. Highly recommend!

  • The ladies at Beautiful Brides made my dress shopping experience a success; I had left other shops in tears with a battered body image and depressed about my small budget. At Beautiful Brides, I found a gown that was $250 over my budget, and they were able to find me a dress I liked even better for $300 UNDER my budget! My whole expereince with them was seamless.

  • There are 2 wonderful attendants there, but watch out if you get anyone else. In the beginning, they were wonderful. They gave me time to look through all the dresses, pick out as many as I wanted, and tried them ALL on. I went to 4 other dress shops, only to go back and purchase one of their dresses. They held it in the back for over a year since my wedding was more than 14 months away! After I purchased my dress, it was as if I became invisible. I hadn't seen it in a long time and really wanted to try it on and it was as if I was a waste of their time. It actually caused me not to purchase my bridesmaid dresses there. After everything was said and done, I brought it back to the shop to have it sent out to be cleaned and whatnot. It had been approx. 5 months and I hadn't heard anything, and since we were in town, my husband and I decided to check on it. I waited 45 minutes to ask if my dress had been cleaned. The staff looked at me and never even acknowledged me!! Overall,... Read more
