  • Very professional. Had one on one help. Found the dress that I loved! Order it, came in on time. Do alterations in the store. Steemed my veil. Even put my dress in my car. Would go there again!

  • I went into Julie Allen today with one of my bridesmaids to begin the search for bridesmaids dresses. We had a great experience here! All of the saleswomen were eager to help and they all checked in with us and worked as a team as we tried on dresses. We had an opportunity to try all the dresses we were interested in. There was never any pressure to decide on anything or purchase anything in that moment. Overall, a very positive experience, and I left feeling much more confident in my vision for my bridesmaids. Thank you!

  • I loved my experience with Julie Allen. I went in 2017 to purchase a dress for my 2018 wedding. Jessica made me feel so comfortable during the shopping experience and listened to all of my thoughts and requests. I ended up purchasing the first dress I tried on! I picked Julie Allen because of the range of designers they carried, and their policy of a $295 fee for alterations. I needed some extra work, so it ended up costing $345, which is hundreds less than what my friends have paid. Cathleen was so professional during alterations and I left feeling like she was my family. I would recommend Julie Allen to anyone!

  • I came into the store with so much anxiety about picking out a dress and was so sure I’d end up just picking something up at Macy’s. The ladies there were so supportive and understanding and made me feel so comfortable. They were so flexible and so accommodating with my schedule when it came to fittings. Selection was also amazing, I wanted all the dresses! Thanks guys!

  • I am so happy I found this place and I will recommended everyone to go see Jess. This was my first stop to try on wedding dresses (I am a very anxious person) Jessica made me feel so comfortable and made my family feel welcome. I told her the type of style I had in mind and seriously I love all the dresses she pulled for me (and there were a lot). Never once did I feel rushed in fact I asked her if I was taking too much of her time which she replied no I wasn't. She pulled a dress for me that stood out than others but I didn't want to say yes to the dress at the first place I went to without giving other places a try first. Well it only took me to go to 2 other places to realize there isn't any other place I would want to get a dress from than Julie Allen. After being told from other places that the style of my dress wouldn't work for my body type, my family being treated unkindly, and being told by someone they didn't want to waste their time with me if I already feel in love with a d...

  • I cannot thank the staff at Julie Allen enough for all that they did in helping me choose my wedding dress. I had been pressured into buying a dress that I didn’t love at a different location, and was heartbroken. About 7 months before my wedding, I made an appointment at Julie Allen to see if they could help. They got me in for an appointment quickly, and could not have been more understanding and sweet. They helped me find my dream dress and veil, as well as the perfect flower girl dress. The seamstress was fantastic, and my dress fit perfectly. Because of the staff, I truly felt like a princess on my wedding day!

  • Julie Allan Bridal is exceptional! I planned a wedding in under 6 months and was able to obtain my dream wedding dress and getting fitted due to the store and these women! The moment I walked in the door I knew I was in good hands. I showed the team a few pictures and had several dresses pulled within the moment. The second dress I tried on was the one I bought within the first visit with no hesitation. I highly recommend you make an appointment for your dress.

  • Everything has been absolutely perfect from the start! Even when I had bumps in the road with my bridesmaids having trouble paying the owner Melanie worked something out with one of my girls and said to me money does not stand in the way. Generous, genuine, good hearted and very sweet woman Melanie is. The whole crew is great made me feel very comfortable and helped me where I have felt lost in my decisions. No matter how many times I changed the dresses for the bridesmaid and what color everyone was helpful and patient and made it happen! My fairytale wedding is possible because of their dedication and love for what they do. Thank you ladies!

  • Julie Allen Bridal was amazing! I had been to a couple of other stores before them, but they were definitely my last stop. The women there are wonderful and they were so accommodating to my crazy work schedule. They made the process so easy and were not pushy at all! They even picked out my dress to have me try it on! They knew exactly what I would want; even before I knew! I highly recommend them to everyone!

  • I got married in September and loved working with Julie Allens. I bought my wedding dress, our bridesmaid dresses, flower girl dress, mother of the bride and grandmothers dresses here. We initially worked with Danielle who was AMAZING! I had narrowed my search down to two dresses, one at Julie Allens and one at another store. Melanie, the owner came into the room and told me she was able to borrow my second dress from another store so that I can try them on together.. which was so awesome. I ended up picking the second dress which she was able to order for me! Everything about all of the dresses were so easy!!! Not only did Melanie do this for my dress, she was amazing and flexible with helping my Mom find a dress she truly loved!!!!! She truly went above and beyond! Angela was our seamstress! She was so patient and amazing as well! I would not hesitate to have any of our family or friends go to Julie Allens to look for their dresses! =)

  • I can't praise Julie Allen Bridal's enough! From picking out my perfect dress, to all of my fittings and finally picking up my dress, they were amazing. They worked with my schedule for the fittings. When picking out my dress I had a very specific idea of what I wanted and she absolutely nailed it. You definitely feel like part of the family when you're there and you are completely taken care of. Thank you ladies, you are THE best.

  • I found my gown at Julie Allen! I went for a Black Friday trunk sale and got an amazing gown for an even better value! With what I saved on the dress, I was able to get a belt and alterations and STILL came in under budget! The alterations staff was professional and did a beautiful job-- it fit like a glove. Just expect to go in a few times before you finally pick up the dress-- they make sure every detail is perfect before you bring it home. Highly recommended!

  • Julie Allen's is the best! I made an appointment on a weekday and worked with Melanie, the owner. She could not have been more kind, listening, and attentive to my needs. I told her I had a low budget and she was extremely willing to work with me. I also brought my 20 month old daughter with me and they gave her a stuffed animal to play with while we were there. Melanie must be a mind reader because the first dress I tried on was exactly what I was looking for and it was in my price range. It was THE dress, After trying on two other dresses, I knew the first one was my dress. Everyone was so kind and welcoming at Julie Allen's, I'm recommending this place to all of my friends when they get married!

  • Julie Allen was my 3rd stop after 2 frustrating experiences at other bridal shops. Julie Allen’s has a fun atmosphere with accommodating staff. They have a beautiful/quality selection of dresses, accessories, and veils. It was a special moment finding the dress there with my mom, she got her dress from Julie Allen 32 years ago! I would definitely recommend buying your dress from Julie Allen’s!
