  • They were so helpful, other places that I went to look for a wedding dress where kind of rude and told me i did not have enough time to get a gown (6 months). But when we arrived at Malindy Elene, the sales associates made us feel very welcome and said it would be no problem to get the gown for me. They also were also very reasonably priced. They got the gown in plenty of time and the seamstress did a beautiful job with the alterations. I loved doing business with them!

  • Malindy Elene specializes in couture gowns that are spectacular. Her staff is so sweet and friendly and they make you feel special and pretty. I loved my dress so much and was so happy that I took Lindy's advice and got the matching veil - it was stunning! Her shop is clean and pretty and the dressing rooms are spacious and comfortable. It was a great experience purchasing my dress from them.

  • Malindy Elene went above and beyond what any bridal salon would normally do. The salon isn't open on Sunday's, but the owner, Malindy, came in just for me so that I could show my mother some of the dresses I was thinking of buying. She didn't even know if I was going to definitely buy a dress, but she opened her doors anyway since my mom flew in town. I doubt any other bridal boutique would do this. The result was a sale and eh worked with me on a payment plan so that I could have the dress of my dreams!!!

  • I had a wonderful experience at Malindy Elene! Even though I only had 4 months to purchase the dress, Lindy and her staff were very accommodating. They made sure everything was here on time and the dress fit perfectly! I purchased a Melissa Sweet gown and veil, and loved my veil so much that I wore it all night. The process of purchasing the dress, which can be stressful, was a pleasure! The one on one treatment Lindy and her staff provided made me feel like I was part of the family. One of the best parts was the atmosphere Lindy has created in the shop. I actually looked forward to the 4 hour drive down to Malindy Elene for fittings! Because of the dress selection, beautiful setting, friendly staff, and one on one treatment, I highly recommend Malindy Elene!

  • Superior customer service and excellent product! I was so pleased with my experience at Malindy Elene that I ended up buying 2 wedding dresses, veil, shoes AND the mother of the bride gown. The staff was extremely welcoming, personable and patient. They really made me feel special. I highly recommend Malindy Elene!

  • Malindy Elene provided a one on one approach with my mother and I. We had custom dress fittings to see what style of wedding gown I would wear and also my mother's gown. They even had the designer, Anne Barge sketch my custom made veil so it was one of a kind. I also had my bridesmaid dresses ordered from Malindy Elene's and they are still timeless. It made my wedding truely unforgetable!

  • Malindy Elene's bridal boutique is simply the only boutique in the Tampa Bay area to find a wedding gown. Picturing yourself in the perfect dress is what you dream about from the time you were a little girl. It's not so much the flowers, or the food, or the music, it's the dress. Even for the anti-bride, it's the dress. The dress is what you, your family and your children see you in years and years after the wedding is over. The personal service you receive paired with the selection of exclusive gowns at Malindy Elene's, is a dream come true for any bride. All the other boutiques in the Tampa area make you feel like just a number. Malindy makes you feel special. She personally helps you select the perfect dress. She even makes your entourage feel right at home in her classy space. For me, she even recommended altering the design of the dress to make is more to my liking. If you want this time in your life to be special, then go the extra mile to visit Malindy.

  • Malindy Elene is the best store in the Tampa Bay Area!! Lindy's store is absolutely spectacular and what an incredible joy Lindy is to work with!!! From the gowns to bridesmaid dresses to my veil......everything was amazing and beautiful!! I cannot say enough amazing things about this incredible store and how special our wedding day was thanks to Malindy Elene!! Many of our friends have had the same experience and have loved every minute of their wedding planning because of Lindy's attention to detail, amazing designer dresses she carries and the time and effort she spends with each bride!!! Anyone that is getting married should not even think twice about going to any other store......you will NOT get the same wonderful experience anywhere!!!Do not waste your time at any other stores!!!

  • Getting my dress at Malindy Elene was generally a delightful experience. Everyone who works there, including Lindy, the owner, is very nice and hands on - they share their opinions with you which I think is great and very helpful in shopping for a once in a lifetime dress. Further, just the atmosphere there alone makes any other bridal shop in the bay area pale significantly in comparison. The store is very pretty and comfortable and the dresses are arranged so nicely - not crammed on racks so it's easy to look. Also there is a lot of space and it's by appointment only so every client feels that she is getting special attention. The only real surprises we had during the process were some awkward exchanges about money. 1) we were asked to pay for the dress in full before it came in. they were flexible about not making us do this though 2) we did not realize that alterations were extra. It added significantly to the cost of the dress and we did not learn this until the very end. O... Read more

  • This is the first review on Wedding Wire for a business that claims to have been in business for a long time. RUN away. This employees and owner of this shop (Malindy Elene Bengston, "Lindy") created so much stress in, and ruined so much of, my wedding planning, actual wedding, and time after my wedding (through me trying to get them to make it right). Shame on them. Some of the gowns they carry are beautiful (although most are outrageously expensive), but you can find them elsewhere. I wish I had known that before I put the 50% deposit on my gown at this shop; I overlooked a lot of things because I liked the gown so much. It was a huge mistake. Take your money someplace better. Within a ten-minute drive of this vendor, you can go to the Dressing Room or Cici's -- both reputable stores where they treat customers with respect. (I didn't get my gown from Cici's, but did shop there for gowns and have shopped there in the past; it was a lovely experience for wedding dres... Read more

  • I have always been a big fan of this store ever since I purchased my Debutante dress here in 2001. This time around as a bride I was extremely patient and flexible throughout my "dress" process. When my dress came in it was apparent it was too short (after all I am 5'10 and extra length, nor a lager size had been ordered to accommodate my height). I was encouraged, by Lindy, to wear a 1' heel in order for the length to work. I asked her to waive the $200 alterations fee due to the dress being too short (I also offered to spilt the cost with her) to which she was dumb-founded and dismayed. After purchasing a high end dress, veil and jewelry from her I felt this was not a big request. I ended up to pay the full alterations price and now i have wedding pictures with my shoes showing as I walk down the aisle. I am very disappointed that Lindy was not more understanding or accommodating.

  • I especially appreciated the fact that the associates were willing to meet with me several times, whenever I requested a meeting. Also, the prompt and thorough responses via email were so appreciated, as my time to shop was very limited. One of my bridesmaids was in town from out-of-state for only a brief stay, and when I called, all appointments were already booked. Malindy still welcomed us in after normal business hours! Her customer service is top-notch! We ended up purchasing all of the bridesmaids dresses at Malindy Elene, and Malindy knew exactly what dress would fit perfectly for our wedding! It was her expertise that brought me back to the store, even after I'd already purchased my wedding gown to find the perfect veil. And once again, she was dead on! I have only praises to sing when it comes to the owner and her very professional, accommodating, knowledgeable, and helpful staff!
