  • 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 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!

  • 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 had the best experience ever choosing a gown! I found the salon at a bridal show and as a plus size bride every single bridal salon I found I would ask if they had plus size gowns in store to try on, it so happened they were having a plus sized trunk show for Allure Bridals coming up. I entered the salon on a Saturday during a trunk show and it was true chaos! However it did not take away from how much time was dedicated to my appointment. I was assisted my Melanie and she is truly amazing! She made the whole experience joyful and not stressful at all. I ended up choosing my dress that day and it’s the most beautiful thing I have ever worn! My bridesmaids found there dresses there too!

  • I had such a wonderful experience working with Julie Allen Bridal and it resulted in me getting married in the dress of my dreams! Before my appointment at Julie Allen, I was feeling discouraged after unsuccessful searches at 4 other bridal salons. I fell in love with a dress right away at Julie Allen and was obsessed with everything about it except for the neckline. I worried that come wedding day I might not feel comfortable in it and started second guessing my decision. Lucky for me, Lauren came to the rescue. Lauren is brilliant and kind. She eased my mind with an idea to merge the dress with another one, so I could have this dress I was so excited about with a neckline that i was completely comfortable with. Lauren and the designer went above and beyond to make that happen for me. I trusted Lauren’s vision and I was THRILLED with how it turned out. From that first appointment to the day I picked up the dress, I had a positive experience each time I walked into their bridal salo... Read more

  • Melanie at Julie Allen Bridals was amazing from my first appointment to picking up my gown. When my wedding plans changed last minute Melanie went above and beyond to accommodate my needs and exchange my dress. I can't recommend them highly enough!

  • I had an amazing experience with Julie Allen Bridals. I had the pleasure of visiting the store when looking for my twin sister's wedding dress and knew I'd be going to the same place for my own. Every single person there is kind, caring, and compassionate. Admittedly, I was not excited about dress shopping on the first trip. I don't like to be the center of attention, didn't have a good idea of what I wanted, and wasn't confident that I would find THE dress that day or anytime soon. Melanie was so kind and patient with me throughout the process. After a few try-ons -- as we were about to leave -- she and her daughter pulled the most beautiful Kitty Chen dress that they thought would fit my style (with the very little information I gave them). I loved the dress as soon as I saw it. When I started going to fittings, it got even better. The seamstress is such a sweet and talented woman, and she made the process so easy and tailored the dress beautifully to fit my body and preferences. I ... Read more

  • I could not have chosen a better bridal shop to find my dream dress! I went in with my mind set on a certain look and color and left with something completely different. The staff there knew exactly what would be perfect for me and it was!! I cried the first time I put my dress on! The staff is all so friendly and caring. I highly recommend Julie Allen’s to everyone looking for their dream dress!

  • 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!
