  • If you’re on a budget and looking for something unique this is the place for you! Elizabeth was fantastic and helped me find the perfect dress! She was patient and listened while also helping me feel comfortable enough to try something out of the box. I ended up with the most beautiful dress! I can’t wait to show it off soon!

  • I have to admit I was extremely skeptical of finding my dress at Fairytale Brides as I have very specific tastes & was adamant about not having the traditional "white" (or any flavor resembling) dress. I had seen on their Instagram page an older post from December of a gray Vera Wang ball gown. It was still there when my Mom and I came in on 2/23. It was just meant to be for me to have the gown :) Not to mention the staff were all so sweet and helpful. Would 100% recommend!

    Hi Milena, I’m so happy you were able to find the perfect gown! It is such a joy to our volunteers to be able to meet the goals of our clients. Congratulations on your upcoming nuptials!

  • When I came to visit with my mom, I already visited one bridal shop and I thought I found the dress. i was mistaken. I found THE DRESS here. With so many more options that catered to my size and color variety. I was in love with my dress. I loved the mirrors and the open floor. The associate was flexible and she knew what would fit me just by memory and that was amazing. I would recommend all new brides check it out. Thank you so much for taking the load of dress shopping off my mind.

    Hi Sundae, Thank you for your kind words! We were so happy to help you find that gorgeous Haley Paige dress! We hope we can make every bride's experience as great as yours. Congratulations again on your wedding. Kind Regards, Elizabeth

  • Fairytale Brides has an amazing collection of wedding dresses for those looking to purchase donated and discounted dresses. The dresses ranged in sizes and styles and were BEAUTIFUL. The staff worked diligently to help me choose a gorgeous dress and I could NOT believe the price. $80 !!! Yes, you read that correctly only $80 which was wayyyy under my budget. It was too good to pass up. Thank you Fairytale Brides for helping me find my fairytale dress.

    Hello Loreal We are super excited that you were able to find your dress at way below your intended budget. Happy to have been of help to you in all the special ways we provide our unparalleled customer service. Congratulations and Best Wishes!

  • I loved my experience with Fairytale Brides. I emailed them ahead of time giving them an idea of the styles I had in mind, and they had some picked out for me when I arrived. However, they were very flexible with me not knowing the exact style - I really kept going back and forth! They were so patient with me, and I was thrilled to find my dress there, while giving back to cancer research!

  • Great experience. They pulled several dresses for me to try until I found the one that was perfect for me. I was shopping on a budget (even before being faced with a pandemic wedding) but I didn't feel like it limited my selection. I found an amazing dress at an amazing price.

  • This boutique is wonderful! While the selection is limited, due to the reliance on donations, they had a number of options in my plus size. The volunteers made me feel welcome and beautiful and were very responsive. I found my dress in under an hour, and I'm thrilled.

    Hi Cate, I know shopping for a wedding gown in a specific size can be frustrating and I am so happy you were able to find your gown at Fairytale Brides. We pride ourselves on being able to offer a wide selection of dresses at all sizes and price ranges. Congratulations!

  • Donna, Alex and Mia helped me find my dress over two appointments. I had previously left two bridal salons without finding anything, one in frustration and the other in tears. I was looking for a modest gown because I am a Christian, and I wanted sleeves because it was a winter wedding. With the styles in vogue today, I was searching for a needle in a haystack. They happened to have a vintage gown in exactly my size, in excellent condition, that was perfect for me. Donna and her team went the extra mile to help me accessorize and teach me about the various details of the dress. The charity component of the shop warms my heart. I felt loved and would highly recommend this shop to any bride.

    Thank you Clair for this stellar review! We had as much satisfaction as you at your bridal appointment and were so pleased to discover that your perfect wedding dress ( an absolute perfect fit! ) had been waiting for you in our inventory! We enjoyed your FaceTime chats with your Mom and was glad we could all be part of the process. You will be a most beautiful bride with a one of a kind look, and cannot wait to see your photos. Thank you for contributing to our most important charities! Warm regards, Donna, Alex and Mia

  • I found this boutique after no luck at David's Bridal. The team there was great! I really didn't expect to find my dream dress there but I DID and I LOVE IT! Everyone I've showed the dress to so far (including the alterations place) have said I got a high quality dress and they were in shock when I told them I found it at a non-profit.

  • My fiancée and I are having a wedding a lot sooner than expected and were in a crunch to find our dresses. Within an hour, we were both able to find beautiful dresses that will make our big day special. Safety protocols were followed to a T, and everyone there was extremely helpful and nice.

  • My experience at Fairytale Brides was wonderful. I was able to find my wedding dress here. Cons: The store is smaller then other bridal dress stores I have been to. This means there was not as much variety. Pros: The store is smaller so it was less overwhelming then other stores. It was easier to look at everything. The attendants were very helpful, picking out things and giving advice about how to accessorize and alter the dress. I picked the dress I did because I loved everything but the bust line and the attendant suggested how I could alter it to make it perfect for me. The prices are great. I got a dress I can tailor anyway I want for $50 with in 45mins of the appointment starting. It's a non-profit. I felt good about giving my money to a non-profit organization. It is definitely worth giving a shot to see what they have available.

    Hi Melissa, We are delighted you were able to find your dream dress at our boutique. We are glad you felt at ease while shopping for this very important occasion. We may be smaller than others but we hope we make up for that by the quality service of our volunteers and dedication to charity! Thank you, Fairytale Brides

  • I had such a sweet visit amidst the craziness that is planning a wedding during coronavirus. Elizabeth asked the right questions to pick out specific gowns that went with my vision and trying them on was so fun! I found the perfect one for my backyard, woodsy wedding.

    Hi Lindsay! We had so much fun finding you the perfect gown. You will look stunning when the big day arrives. Please send us pictures! Best, Elizabeth
