  • 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!

  • When I started looking at dresses I was looking on Pinterest, I found this incredible dress by Allure Bridal. I felt that it was perfect and I could not get this dress out of my head until I tried it on. Other dresses were not giving me the "wow" factor that I was hoping for. We went to many bridal stores that were in our local area, but none of them had it. We extended our search and were told it was on a trunk show in Massachusetts, except when we got there we were told it wasn't there. We started calling more bridal salons around CT, my mom contacted Julie Allen Bridal and they were fabulous! They located the dress, which was at the time getting ready to go to another trunk show. A store Melanie had contact with was able to ship it for one day only to Julie Allen so I could try it on, before they had to send it to the show. I will always be thankful to Melanie and the staff at Julie Allen Bridal, they went above and beyond in helping me to get this dress. It all worked out, my g... Read more

  • The ladies at Julie Allen Bridals really know their craft. We had our appointment last July and had a great experience. It was the first shop I went to when dress shopping and I wasn't sure what to expect. Melanie greeted us and assisted at my dress appointment. She started by asking what my vision was and what I liked and disliked. I tried on a few that I had chosen and we discussed what I loved and didn't love on each. Melanie took all of this into account and then proceeded to go in back and pick THE PERFECT DRESS!!! My mother, aunt, and I all cried and my sisters and best friend were teary eyed. Since it was only the 5th wedding gown I had ever tried on I went to two other stores that same day to make sure that was the dress I wanted and I was back at Julie Allen Bridals by the end of the day to order my perfect dress from them. I had all my alterations done with Cassie who is one of the seamstresses at Julie Allen Bridals and she was wonderful as well. Very knowledgeable and eas... Read more

  • Me, my mom and bridesmaids arrived on a busy Saturday morning with no appointment made. Despite the craziness, we were accommodated and treated just as special as any other customer. I showed a dress from a magazine clipping.. and found my perfect match within three tries!! The girls there especially our lovely, sweet, and caring seamstress made our experience at Julie Allen's memorable!

  • I found Julie Allen Bridals on Wedding Wire and based on all of the positive reviews I knew this had to be my first stop for bridal gown shopping. It turns out that Julie Allen Bridals was also my ONLY stop for bridal gown shopping! Melanie helped me during my appointment and I literally only had to answer 2 questions, do I want strapless and what is my price point. I didn't show her any pictures and yet every dress she pulled was exactly my style! After about 7-8 dresses, I knew I found the one! The whole process was very seamless, I had as many fittings as necessary to make sure my dress fit as perfectly as it could. The day of my wedding, once I put my dress on I did not want to take it off ever!! I loved it so much, and received so many compliments that night. Thank you Julie Allen Bridals for providing me with such a breathtaking dress for my wedding day!!

  • I can't say enough nice things about Julie allens. After visiting multiple bridal shops that just didn't seem to understand what I was looking for.. within 5 mins of being there Jess knew and came out with my dream gown. I also purchased my bridal party's gowns from here. The owner Melanie is wonderful and helped me so much between all the craziness of my huge bridal party that were all different sizes. The seamstress's are great as well. I can't thank this bridal shop enough! Without them I may have had a mental breakdown lol ..: I highly recommend Julie Allen bridals for your wedding gown of your dreams!

  • This was the first Bridal Shoppe I went to, and oh I am so glad I did! Everyone was so nice and friendly! Never complained about how many dresses I put on. I told them what I wanted, and by the second dress I had my wedding gown! Of course i had to try on some more just because I had to be sure! The wedding gowns are beautiful and very affordable. It's a big Shoppe with plenty of room. The dressing rooms have chairs for family. I felt so good going in, they treat you like you are family! It was just an amazing experience.

  • I had a great experience purchasing my dress and getting alterations from Julie Allen Bridal. All the girls working there were awesome- very helpful in pulling dresses to find the perfect dress. I made another appointment after the initial one because I was undecided. I had staff members helping on the different days but they were both great. I was looking for a dress with short sleeves and although they didn't have many they had great solutions to tailor other dresses to meet my needs. Dress arrived about 6 months after we ordered it. All alterations are done on site. One thing to note is that you pay the seamstress separately from the shop. The seamstress was AMAZING! At my last fitting she hugged me and wished me luck. Everyone at the wedding commented how they loved my dress and how well it fit me. Thank you to everyone at Julie Allen Bridal for everything!

  • Just had my wedding this past weekend and I absolutely LOVED my dress. The staff at Julie Allen's did everything to make my dress so perfect including allowing me to come in for an extra fitting. The dress was gorgeous and everyone else loved it too! The ONLY down side to Julie Allen's (that doesn't change my review at all) is that I wish they had more accessories in store to go with my dress. They did have some jewelry/belts/veils however I had to go elsewhere for under garments and shoes. Would have loved if it was a one stop shop, however I also understand that is just something they do not do. Just thought that was important to point out for others. Thank you so much for making my day so special :)

  • The staff here have been so accommodating at every step in the process. Their selection of beautiful gowns made it difficult to choose just one, but everyone was patient with the process and I fell in love with an eddy k gown. The alterations were also amazing-- I can't speak highly enough about Julie Allen!

  • This was the first place I tried on dresses and they were amazingly helpful! They showed me so many gowns and really listened to what I liked and didn't like. I left without a dress my first time because I am so indecisive. I decided to go back there at a later time with less people and they happened to be having a trunk show for Eddy K dresses and I tried back on a dress that I had originally tried on and I knew it was the once. I got a great price and great customer service! They also were able to help my bridesmaids with their dresses!

  • I found my dress like a year and half early. Annie was really nice and patient with me because I had no clue what I wanted. I was so happy with the service I had all my bridesmaidmaids get their dress there also. There is one lady that sometimes has an attitude it seems but overall I am very happy with them. Melanie the owner is the best. I would recommend others to go there.

  • Lauren is your wedding dress fairy godmother! I cannot say enough about how wonderful she is. She made me feel 100% comfortable during my entire appointment. I didn’t feel rushed, even on a busy saturday. In fact, the attention that was given to me made me feel as if I was the only one in the store. Lauren made sure I had the best experience, and I did! This little boutique has many options for all brides no matter what shape or size you are and they help guide you into the right direction with there expertise. They also are extremely reasonable prices. I said yes to the dress & had a very special bridal moment at Julie Allen. It’s a day I will always remember and I’m grateful to have that experience with the help of Lauren. In addition to me finding my dress & having alterations with the amazing Cassie. My mom & all 5 bridesmaids purchased there dresses from Julie Allen. It’s safe to say we spent many, many weekends here and each time had a wonderful experience with Lauren... Read more
