  • My family and I had a wonderful time shopping for my wedding gown here. All of the staff, including the owner and daughter were extremely warm, inviting and attentive. They helped me to find the dress of my dreams and I cannot be happier. They were easy going and really helped us to feel welcome in the shop. I highly recommend for any bride looking for a really personal and easy going experience and somewhere that really cares about you as a bride. I'm so thankful I chose them and I look forward to continuing to work with them as I come back for fittings leading up to my special day! I feel confident in my choice and I know I will look amazing on my day thanks to these women.

  • The staff at Julie Allen Bridal is AAAHHHMAZING!!! I can't thank them enough for all their help with finding me and my mother in law dresses. I'd gone to several other stores before coming across their shop and later learning my mother in law had purchased her gown from Miss Allen 35 years before. Every other bridal store pretty much disregarded me or offered me little to no help and I was getting discouraged. I wasn't the average customer - I wanted a specific type of gown / look and it had to be black! Not to mention we had time constraints to make our Halloween 2020 wedding date. They were able to give me multiple choices that fit my budget and worked to find something I was over the moon for. They truly went above and beyond to find something I absolutely loved and were generous enough to wave the rush fee for me which is incredibly generous considering they're a small shop that went through months of closure because of the virus. They really care about the customers and it shows.... Read more

  • I cannot thank Julie Allen Bridals enough for helping me find my dream dress! While I was looking for dresses, I found Rebecca Ingram's design ”Kaitlyn” I fell in love with it and had to try it on. When I found out Julie Allen Bridal carried the dress, I knew I had to go and try it on. It was the first dress I tried on, and instantly I knew! Going forward with fittings, everyone was amazing and knowledgeable. When the pandemic hit, they called to ensure that my dress would be safe until I was able to pick it up. After three date changes, I finally got to wear my dream dress on October 10th. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

  • I started looking for a dress about a month ago, I went to 2 smaller shops and had no luck. I was honestly feeling that i wasn't going to find my dress at all. A close friend recommended Julie Allen. Even though it was a 95 minute drive, i took her advice and thank god I did. I felt at ease the second i walked in. The store had several different styles displayed and it was clear they had an extensive inventory. The owner, Melanie, took the time to sit down, talk to me and get an idea of what i was looking for. I felt EXTREMELY comfortable with her. The first dress I tried on was my dress, I think i knew it the second i put it on but still tried a few others. I liked that the sample sizes were not way to small or way to large, to me it gave a much better feeling of the dress was like. The rooms to try on dresses was large enough to see the dress in full, but i still walked my favorites to the main area, and even outside the building to be absolutely sure i liked the ... Read more

  • The bridal shop, employees and owner were wonderful! I showed my consultant dressed I was interested in and they went and pulled all the possibilities for me (while keeping in mind my budget). I felt extremely comfortable and welcomed. Julie Allen Bridal is extremely accommodating and do whatever possible to make the bride as well as the wedding party happy! I cant wait to go back with my bridesmaids to get their dresses!

  • I purchased my dress from Julie Allen Bridals in August of 2019 for my July 2020 wedding and I could not have asked for a better experience. I felt that the consultants that I worked with truly cared about helping me find the perfect dress and listened to anything feedback I had as I tried dresses on. They were very respectful of my budget and did not show me anything that was too expensive for me to be able to buy. The staff could not have been more wonderful. It was evident that every person who worked there loves what they do. As it came time to begin alterations, COVID 19 hit. Once they reopened, they took the precautions necessary to keep clients feeling safe. They also made sure that my dress was completely perfect on time. I never was nervous about going into the salon. Julie Allen is an example of what makes family owned small businesses so great. Thank you for helping me feel confident and beautiful on my big day!

  • I must have tried on over 150 wedding dresses, been to over 10 different bridal shops, and Julie Allen Bridals was BY FAR the best experience I had along my journey to finding my perfect dress. Jessica heard everything that I wanted and delivered my vision more clearly than I could have verbally expressed it. I even planned a day trip to some of the top bridal shops in NYC only to be left disappointed, until I finally said Yes to the dress at Julie Allen Bridals. Everything from the dresses to the consultants is top notch. I would HIGHLY recommend!

  • My sister went here for her dress and had a great experience so I started here also. The selection they have is unmatched by other stores I visited. I was specifically looking at the Wilderly by Allure dresses and they had so many! I found my perfect dress and the alterations were quick and painless. They have a price cap for alterations. My dress was simple so I didn’t hit the top but it was nice to know so I could budget. Thanks ladies!

  • WOW, I just had the best experience with Jessica! She helped me find the most amazing dress, and I said YES! I appreciated her guidance and experience. I will be recommending Julie Allen’s to everyone I know. My mother also bought her wedding gown at Julie Allen’s 40 years ago, which made the day that much more fun. Thank you for making this experience so special for me!! It will be a memory I will never forget.

  • Awesome experience, found my dress, and got to try on exactly what I thought I wanted as well, and then picked a slightly different bottom because it just felt more like me. I was trying on size bridal 14, but ordered a bridal 16, so I’m just pointing out to all the curvier, Fuller brides, this store made me feel better than Kleinfeld’s (where I had to dry on size bridal 10 and had no idea what the over budget dress would look like. Al Julie Allen Bridals, I found my perfect dress, under budget, ordered it and have not had any buyers remorse. I’m getting married 11/22/19, paid about $2300 for a full embellished sweetheart ballgown and have heard my dress should come in mid August. I’ll update if i have a different experience here with alterations but I don’t not expect this. Bottom line, check it out.

  • I can not say enough wonderful things about Julie Allen Bridals! From my first bridal appointment to my last fitting, I received white glove service. Lois assisted me in picking out my dress and I couldn't be happier with how it turned out. Yupa took care of me every step of the way during my fitting appointments. She was so kind and truly wanted my dress to be perfect for me. I highly recommend Julie Allen Bridals! You won't be disappointed with the quality of their service and attention to detail.

  • Melanie, Lauren, Angela, and the entire team were amazing! The process was seamless and they make you feel like family every time you’re there. They helped me create a custom wedding dress on a budget (we added sleeves and a belt). They carefully listened to my vision, had me try on a bunch of styles, and offered professional and thoughtful advice which landed me with the perfect dress for my big day. They also offer in-house tailoring which makes the experience stress free. I highly recommend Julie Allen Bridals.

  • I found this shop after some research online of different bridal salons in the area. This shop has many dresses in a wide variety of sizes. I was especially impressed with their selection of plus size dresses. Lauren was very knowledgeable of the designers and styles of dresses that would look best on me. We even went back a second time to try on again and she was still just as friendly and helpful. Lauren stayed true to my budget which was amazing. All of the ladies are attentive to your needs and make sure to not overwhelm you. We also found my moms dress with the help of Jes. I highly recommend this shop. Can’t wait for my dress to come in.❤️

  • I was disappointed with Julie allen. They are a nearby bridal store and I went there for my bridesmaid dresses. They are a busy place but I felt like I was the one annoying them. My mother & I showed up for the appt and stood there for over 10 minutes and no one acknowledged us. It took me going over to the lady behind the counter to let them know I was there. I picked out my own dresses and just ordered them because it was a convenient location. Never again!
