  • I had a great first experience here working with Nella. She did a great job bringing things in for me to try after seeing my reactions to different styles of dresses. Nella’s been here for many years and has a lot of experience helping women find the perfect gown! She advised us that white is out now and that they don’t get many dresses in white, though most dresses can be ordered in white. I have trouble choosing something I can’t see in person, so I knew it was unlikely I’d order a dress in a color I hadn’t seen, like there aren’t even pics online of different colors of each dress (some perhaps, maybe depends on company?)! It was odd to have to give a credit card # to book an appointment but I guess when you have limited weeknight and weekend hours you do what you have to to deter no-shows. If you don’t show, you get charged $25, which is reasonable I guess. We were told that if your bridesmaids also buy gowns here then they get 10% off their dresses and the brid... Read more

  • I went into Mariella’s with 5 pictures of the type of dress I would be looking for. The stylist came back with 5 dresses, all of which were incredibly beautiful and matched exactly what I described, but all being unique in different ways. I was very pleased with her selections. Additionally, all of the dresses were within the price range I gave her. I fell in love with one of them more than the others and knew it was the one, but also had an appointment at another place and felt like I had to go because it would be rude to be a no show. The stylist was a bit disappointed (understandable) but did not pressure me one bit and said that if I decide the dress is the one to come back anytime. I went to the other store and quickly saw that nothing compared so I went right back to Mariella to order the dress. They took me right in to measure me and were extremely accomodating even though it was no longer my appointment time. I highly recommend searching for your dress at Mariella’s as the... Read more

  • I found my wedding dress at Mariella's and my experience was fantastic. Both my mother and my sister found their wedding dresses there, so it was a really unique family experience for me to go, as well! For a girl who never wears dresses, they made the entire process smooth and enjoyable, and I found the perfect dress! They were happy and kind the entire time. I have gotten bridesmaid dresses from them in the past, and I have always had an outstanding experience.

  • I had made an appointment at Mariella’s and the day of my appointment there was a horrible ice storm. They called me the day before and the day of to ask if I was still planning on coming and I let them know my mom was in town only for the week so we would be there no matter what. We were the only customers in the store and it was a wonderful experience. Before we even arrived, the consultant asked me over the phone specifics about the wedding, what I was looking for and my price range. She actually pulled the wedding dress I ended up choosing before even meeting me in person. I felt like the consultants knew what they were doing, were very professional and helpful. I highly recommend Mariella’s!

  • I had a wonderful experience at Mariellas and the seamstress they recommend Margie and Irena's. Both shops worked well with me and my bridal party (pre-covid) and had excellent communication about any delay Covid might have caused. At Mariella's the consultant pulled the dress with the first group of dresses she brought in. She was able to bring in different veils and accessories to complete the look I was going for on my wedding day. Margie and Irena's were so accommodating, they were great as my mom learned how to bustle the dress. A few months after my experience there with my bridesmaids, one of my girls went back and found her dress!

  • Nella was excellent to work with- she was attentive, kind and compassionate. She encouraged me to try on a more mermaid/trumpet type of gown and, I’m so glad she did! The dress fit me like a glove and I would have NEVER picked it out for myself. It’s a stunning Eddy K gown... Advice: listen to the gown consultants...it’s their job!!! Thank you Nella!

  • We had the best experience at Mariella Creations with the best and most incredible customer experience thanks to Mariella and Christine. I explained my vision and Christine immediately put me in the perfect dress. They were patient, kind, helpful, and gave my mom and I the wedding dress shopping experience I've always imagined. I couldn't have been happier!

  • I found my dress at Mariella's was was not disappointed with the customer service and the amount of time and dedication they put in to helping me find the perfect dress. I was unsure about the dress I ended up buying and Mariella came into my appointment and gave me suggestions to help ease my mind. I walked out saying yes to the dress! The phenomenal customer services extended 4 blocks down the road to Margie and Irena's for alterations. They altered my dress in a timely manner and did a phenomenal job! I can't recommend Mariella's and Margie and Irena's enough! all around great people.

  • I can’t say enough great things about this store. I had major dress regret with a gown purchased elsewhere. The experience with the other store was not good. From the moment I walked into my appointment at Mariella’s l felt at ease. My consultant was patient and listened to what I was asking for. I was in a time crunch and was past the point of ordering most dresses. She allowed me to look through the dresses and when I found a discontinued sample the owner stepped in to really help me envision what alterations could do to add lining and sleeves. They literally took a tough situation and created my dream dress! I was dreading wearing the original wedding dress and now I can’t wait to put my new one on!!!! This is a family run business and you can tell they love what they do! If you’re considering making an appointment, do it. You won’t be disappointment. Absolutely stunning collection of designers also!!!

  • I came to Mariella's without expecting to buy a dress. I sat down with my consultant, who asked me a lot of questions about the venue and vision for the wedding, as well as asked me for pinterest pictures of dresses I liked and pictures of dresses I had tried on before. She took in every detail I told her, and pulled a few dresses to start. I gave her my thoughts on the first two dresses she pulled, and then she immediately thought of another dress I might like. She left, and brought back one more dress, which ended up being the one. It was absolutely perfect, and I couldn't believe how quickly she was able to pick out the dress of my dreams! I also ended up getting my bridesmaid's dresses there, which were also absolutely beautiful! It was such a great place to work with!

  • When I ordered my dress, the consultant explained the dress can be ordered in three lengths. Standard (which fits someone 5'11"), 3 inches shorter (someone 5'8") or 5 inches shorter (5'6"). Since I am 5'6", they recommended I go with the 3 inch shorter length and get short heels but said I could get it hemmed if I wanted to wear flats. When it came in, it was WAY longer than 2 inch heel height. They refused to measure the length or admit that the dress came in wrong and kept brushing it off that there's no way to know for sure how long the dress will actually be when it comes in. Then why can they guarantee a dress size but not length? Why was this not said when ordering the dress? I had to pay $250 for hemming that I didn't budget in since I was assured it wouldn't have to be hemmed. They were extremely rude and unhelpful and I tell all of my friends and family to steer clear.

    Hi Katie, I feel bad about this review.When you initially ordered your gown we did explain the gown comes standard length, 3" shorter at no charge, or 5" shorter at an extra charge. We never equated height versus length of gown. Meaning standard is hollow of neck to hem 59" not for someone 5'11". At the time of ordering the gown, 5" shorter which is a length of 54" ,would have been too short. You preferred the option of 3" shorter at no charge and adjust your heels for the length of the gown or have it hemmed at the alterations department if it was too long. We always state each gown is made individually so there can be a slight variance in length. Meaning slightly shorter or slightly longer. This statement is directly from the company and written on their sizing chart. When we receive a brides wedding gown we measure the length to make sure the length is correct before notifying the bride, your gown was 56" in length. I just checked your invoice when we received your gown just to make sure the company did not make a mistake and it does states 3" shorter. I wish I had an answer why it was long but you also decided to wear flats instead of heels. We want all our Brides to be happy and I would like to discuss this matter with you. At your convenience please give me a call and let's see what we can do to help you with your alteration fee. Congratulations, Mariella

  • My only complaint about Mariella Creations is that despite making an appointment, we were made to wait over 30 minutes before a consultant was available to bring us upstairs. I happened to go during their yearly 50% off floor samples sale and got my dream gown for 50% off!!! The consultant was very knowledgeable and paid close attention to what I told her in terms of what I wanted, didn't want, etc, and after trying on 3 dresses we had my perfect dress. I would highly recommend this store, they do a fabulous job making what can be a very trying experience smooth as silk!

  • I went to try on dresses Saturday showed them a dress I saw online and they actually just received the dress in. They had many dresses to choose from and each one beautiful in their own way! The layout is amazing and each section having their own dressing rooms. The staff was amazing a pleasant. I went back on Monday and put down the deposit of the dress I wanted. Can’t wait for it to come in
