  • I had the most perfect wedding dress experience here with my big, loud, loving family and the owner of the salon, Karen. Karen was the sweetest, and she was ever patient with me and my crowd! To top it off she came in on her day off and gave us a great deal. The dresses were beautifully selected couture designer gowns and she had a perfect variety of discontinued samples and current styles made to order. I lucked out because every dress I liked was about 50% off retail and well under my budget of $1000. I ended up with a haute couture Maggie Sottero dress for $825. My mom found her dress too, and she gave her an even better deal for buying both! I also got my veil heavily discounted in the deal too. While we were trying on their new, highly talented seamstress walked in with 7 years experience at RK Bridal in NYC and fitted me right there. My alterations included hem, bustle, and spaghetti straps for $250. My mom's were only $75. Bottom line, go everywhere else first if you want ... Read more

  • I had a wonderful experience working with Karen to find my dress! She made the day of trying on dresses quite fun and relaxing, giving me time to see myself in each dress privately before showing the group. And I got a beautiful dress for a great price!

  • I am SO glad I found Isabelle's for my wedding dress! The owner, Karen, is simply wonderful. I was looking for a place that wasn't snobby and that wouldn't make me feel bad about my wedding dress budget ($1000 or less). Isabelle's carries dresses at a wide range of price points including a whole rack of sample sale dresses at reduced prices, so no matter what your budget is you will be able to find something beautiful here. Isabelle's is a small store so when you make an appointment you essentially have the whole store to yourself, and Karen really takes her time so you don't feel like you're being rushed in or out. Best of all, Karen has expert taste! When I first came, I described what I was looking for (loosely) and Karen immediately pulled out a dress that was just right. It was the first dress I ever tried on, and I ended up getting it! Karen is also really accommodating. Since I don't live in the area, she brought my dress over to a tailor in Metuchen who did my alterations, a... Read more

  • The shop is very quiet and lovely place. Karen (the owner) was there to assist me with whatever I needed. She made me feel like the most important bride in the world. I had visited other bridal stores, but the dresses they had were dresses I've seen everywhere. I wanted a gown that would be all mine. She knew what I wanted just by a description and what I thought I wouldn't like from what she pulled for me, I loved and it became my wedding dress. She has a gift for find THAT PERFECT DRESS. She made my dress experience so amazing. My gown was a designer that is only available in three locations locally…which worked perfectly. I was able to accessorize the dress with a super awesome sash made by Kristina from Plumes in Bloom. Kristina is an amazing and gifted designer and a good friend from high school. It was a privilege to wear the gorgeous sash.

  • Karen at Isabelle's is simply wonderful. She was professional and absolutely made my dress search a joyous experience. I went from not enjoying wedding dresses to loving it because of Karen at Isabelle's. Not only was she helpful, she listened to me and she worked with me to find my dream dress! If anyone is looking for a wedding dress I always will from now on recommend Isabelle's because of the high quality, beautiful dresses and the customer care. I went into the store as a stranger left feeling like a friend and a BRIDE! I couldn't be more happy with my dress it's stunning and such immaculate beading work. Karen has the perfect dress selections, you won't be disappointed. I cannot wait to wear my dress on my wedding day. I never want to take it off! I couldn't be happier, thank you Isabelle's for helping me!

  • I looked at reviews before heading over to Isabelle's, and noticed all of Karen's great reviews, so I had to go. Before visiting, I went to numerous dress shops that were just looking for a sale on an expensive dress that was not a "WOW". When I first went into Isabelle's, I noticed she did not have as many dresses as the other shops and thought it was going to be a fast appointment. After trying on a few dresses that I've never seen before at other stores, I realized that she had impeccable taste and style. They were all amazing dresses, high quality materials and had that"WOW" factor. She has a lot of accessories and veils to go with the dresses and they are absolutely beautiful and breathtaking! I fell in love with one dress, then visited her shop a second time to show my aunt, and then thought I would purchase it the third time. At that visit, she had new arrivals from bridal market in NYC, and I tried on a dress she just got in, I had the "moment" where I knew it was my dress. I a... Read more

  • When it comes to finding the perfect wedding dress--Karen, of Isabelle's Bridal & Eveningwear, is like a magical fairy godmother. I was very nervous about the process of wedding dress shopping--How long will it take to find something I like? What type I dress do I want? What will even look good one me?? Am I going to need to spend an enormous sum of money to find a dress I love??? I walked into Isabelle's on a Saturday afternoon, I tried on 5 gorgeous, unique and affordable dresses and I found the gown of my dreams--in one day of shopping! It was my first time trying on dresses! I would recommend going with Isabelle's for a number of reasons. 1. Karen (like I said before) is like the fairy godmother you always wish you had. She is a truly wonderful soul! We loved spending time with her while trying on gowns. She made me feel special and helped me and my family create a great memory! 2. Karen is a complete professional. She knows everything there is to know about the bridal gown... Read more

  • I visited Karen at Isabelle's Bridal today with my friend & her daughter Mandy. Mandy will be attending Ring Figure at the Virginia Military Institute next month and needed a white gown. Karen went above and beyond to help Mandy find the perfect dress. Karen knows her dresses and not only had a gorgeous gown that fit Mandy perfectly, but it was within the budget and she had an adorable jacket to match! Thank you again Karen for your help and for having the perfect dress for Mandy. No worries if you have a time crunch - Karen will find you exactly what you need in time for your event!

  • I stopped at Isabelle's by chance, and after my experience there, I am so glad I did! Karen at Isabelle's is absolutely AMAZING. She is a sweet, caring shop owner who made me feel like family the minute I walked in the door. I was shopping for a dress for my 2nd wedding; something simple but special. After trying on several dresses and getting an idea about me and what I was looking for, she found me the PERFECT dress! She was also wonderful with my daughter. I purchased a dress for her the same day as mine, and when we came back in for the fitting, it no longer fit her. Karen felt so badly that the dress didn't work, that she went out of her way to find a new dress for my daughter. The dress turned out to match mine, which made my daughter so excited. My experience with Karen and Isabelle's couldn't have been more positive. Caring service, beautiful gowns and wonderful prices. Karen is simply the best, and I would recommend anyone looking for a wedding, 1st communion, b... Read more

  • I can't recommend Isabelle's enough!! Not only is Karen Frost the kindest, sweetest and most generous, genuine person, but she also has fantastic taste. Her shop is filled with the most unique, vintage-y, beautiful wedding dresses and she really knows how to pick something that will look perfect on you. I thought I knew what I wanted and Karen entertained me...letting me try on a ridiculous number of dresses and while all were beautiful, none of them did anything for me. I'm so glad I put myself in her hands. I asked her to pick something that she thought I'd look good in and found "the one" in no time. The dresses I picked out cost significantly more than the one she picked for me. She truly wanted to make me happy and it wasn't about how much money she was making. She was even so generous as to offer to lend me her necklace (that wasn't for sale) and shoes for my big day. I ended up buying my bridesmaid dresses from Karen (which were also unique and I got SO many compliment... Read more

  • I cannot rave enough about Karen and her boutique. Karen is an amazing person and a delight to be around. She made me and my bridesmaids feel so comfortable and we had so much fun with her. I bought my wedding dress and bridesmaid dresses from Karen and will be going back for Maid of Honor and the Mother of the Bride dress. Karen has excellent ideas and opinions that really helped me when deciding on colors of the bridesmaid dresses. As if all of this isn't enough of a reason to go Isabelle's Bridal, the prices are unbeatable. For the quality and beauty of her gowns I thought it would be a lot more expensive. Isabelle's Bridal should be first on your list. Karen thank you so much for making my day wonderful. Thank you, Liza Marigliano

  • Karen is amazing!!! I am not a shopper so I was dreading buying a wedding dress before I went to Isabelle's. I hate being pushed around by salespeople, but I also needed guidance because I wasn't sure exactly what I was looking for. Karen was the perfect solution! She was not pushy at all and made the whole experience a lot of fun. She listened to what I wanted and picked the most beautiful dress! She also explained the alterations we can make to make it even more of my dream dress. She won't make you feel rushed at all. She makes it very clear that she just wants her customers to be happy. And her dresses are very reasonably priced which is amazing because they are all beautiful. I am going back to Isabelle's to look at bridesmaid dresses and my mom is going to look for her mother-of-the-bride dress. You will leave her shop with a beautiful dress and feeling like you made a new friend. I couldn't recommend this place more highly!

  • I got married this past August and bought my wedding dress from Isabelle's. Karen, the owner, was the sweetest vendor I met during the entire planning process. Like all the other reviews say, Karen makes you feel like a princess and gives you one-on-one attention during your dress appointment. With her excellent sense of style, she is able to pick out the most flattering dresses for your frame/figure. Karen's selection of dresses is unlike any other boutique in New Jersey. It's doubtful that you'll find the designers she carries in any of the other stores in the area. I only went to only one other store to shop for dresses, and the experience I had was vastly different from my experience at Isabelle's. The saleswoman was extremely pushy and only throwing things on me that she liked, not taking anything I was saying into account. Karen, on the other hand, was so warm and genuinely cares about her brides and tries to make them feel special. Besides my dress, I also got m... Read more

  • Look no further than Isabelle's Bridal and Evening Wear!!! Karen is wonderful, with a skilled eye for selecting gorgeous gowns, veils, hair pieces, and jewelry for women with fine taste. She treats her customers like royalty. She genuinely cares about your special event and wants you to look "like a million bucks"!!! When you are in her store, you are her full focus - she is patient and gracious with her time. I could not be more thrilled and proud of my beautiful wedding gown that Karen suggested I try on when I was looking for my gown - her eye and vision of me in the gown even before I tried it on was perfect. Karen is kind, personable, professional, and made this part of my wedding preparation an absolute pleasure and dream come true. I could not recommend Isabelle's more!!!!
