  • I found Michele A Bridal boutique on wedding wire. I was looking for a cute shop that would give me the whole bride experience I’ve always dreamed of. I brought my mom, grandma, and my cousin who is my maid of honor. My whole experience from the initial scheduling of the appointment was wonderful. Julie (the owner) is so sweet & fun. Not only is the boutique itself adorable (purple walls & the cutest decor) I was also welcomed with a personalized sign and the tastiest lavender champagne for me & my guests. Finding my perfect dress was almost too easy with Julie! She made me feel so comfortable and allowed me to try on as many styles as I wanted. She is so knowledgeable, listened to all of my inspiration / ideas and made sure I covered trying on all different styles so I knew I wasn’t missing out on anything. I am so in love with my dress and can’t wait for it to come in! Once I said yes to the dress she picked out the perfect vail for me & headpiece that I never knew I needed. I ... Read more

    Oh wow Nicole this is so beautifully written and your kind words have me a little choked up to be honest. What makes for a great appointment is the bride and their family and the credit really belongs to you! Coming in with an open mind and open heart, trusting me with the most important garment you are ever going to wear is the biggest honor ever. Thank you! xoxo-Julie

  • I can't begin to tell you how amazing my experience was with Julie and Michele A Bridal. I don't live close to Westbrook, and what originally brought me here was they had my favorite designer, Stella York. This was the first shop I went to to begin my wedding dress hunt and from the moment I (and my ridiculous number of guests-8!) walked in the door, we felt like family. Julie was so welcoming and even had lavender champagne waiting for each of us. What’s really nice is they only do one appointment at a time, so it’s a more personalized experience and not as overwhelming. What I also liked was there’s a beautiful separate changing room with a full wall mirror that helps you see a dress from all angles before walking out to show your entourage. I tried on a bunch of dresses, some that I absolutely adored, but since it was my first shop, I wanted to shop around to make sure I wasn’t missing out on anything. Luckily Julie completely understood how important that was and I knew i... Read more

  • Our experience at Michele Bridal was "magical" start to finish!! Julie is attentive, smart as heck with what she does, and truly listens to her bride! My daughter cried after leaving two other salons. She felt overweight; like her "dress" wasn't out there. The actual tears of joy and happiness when Julie found her dress and made all her wedding dreams come true made this mom of the bride cry too!! My daughter looked like a princess on her wedding day and we owe it all to Julie! The gown, the veil (Swarovski crystals!!), and the earrings were absolute perfection!! Just amazing!!!

    Hi Cyndi! Thank you so much for the kind words! Amanda was a pleasure to fit and style! I'm so sad to hear she left her other appointment in tears but so glad she got the happily ever after she deserved! xoxo-Julie

  • I went to try on wedding dresses at Michele yesterday and my sister mom and I had such a great experience! I feel like they had a great selection to choose from. Literally loved all of them that I tried on which did not happen anywhere else. Plus, the ladies made me feel so happy and the boutique itself was adorable! Definitely recommend.

  • First of all. It has to be said, going alone was the best decision I’ve made so far. I went to 4 other salons (Kleinfeld’s included..NIGHTMARE) and each time brought 2-8 people with me. I met with Julie for my appointment. Before even looking at dresses we sat on the couch, sipped lavender champagne and she listened to my whole dress hunting fiasco. I showed her pictures of gowns I’ve tried on, and what I liked and didn’t like about them. She very obviously was paying attention because she pulled about 6 gowns. And in that selection, WAS MY DRESS!! I’ve been searching for months and have tried on at least 3 dozen dresses and felt like I’d never have that “this is it, this perfect” moment. I continued to try on the other gowns in the selection, but as we both knew, I ended up back in the one I loved. She called the designer to confirm they can make the gown with split sizing (I’m chesty with no hips), she measured me, put me back in my gown and took pictures and videos... Read more

  • What a beautiful boutique with warm and welcoming consultants! As the bride I felt like a princess! The shop is clean and adorable and all the dresses are STUNNING! The bridal consultant found perfect dresses unique to my style choices. They were so helpful and not overpowering. They even let me come back as the store was closing after I couldn't find a better dress at the other appt I had that day to SAY YES TO MY DRESS. Couldn't have asked for a better experience. Would 100% recommend to every soon to be bride.

  • I visited Michele back in June to go bridal dress shopping. This was the first and only place I had made an appointment with so far and little did I know it was the last place I’d look. Julie KILLED it with my dress, first one I tried on as a matter of fact. I sat with her for about 5 minutes explaining what my taste was and what I was looking for. She knew almost instantly and pulled the perfect gown. My experience was so personal able and intimate which is extremely hard to find now a days. She is the absolute best and you will regret not coming here and having her find the dress of your dreams. Her memory is top notch as I’m sure she sees multiple brides/bridal party a day and still seems to remember me, my dress and everything about me so vividly. So stop what you’re doing and make an appointment with her because you will regret it if you don’t. I will continue to refer as many brides as I can so they can have the magical experience I did. I can’t thank her enough!

  • I loved working with the team at Michele Bridal! Julie was incredible, she actually spent her Friday night emailing me pictures of specific gowns so she knew which dresses to pull for me the next day. The experience was just overall incredible,I found my dress within one hour after many trips and many hours trying on other gowns in other bridal shops. They have something for every bride and their staff makes the experience that much better.

    Cas, You are so beautiful inside and out, it was just beyond a pleasure working with you and a complete honor to be dressing you for your wedding. Thank you so much for the kind words! You have no idea how much they mean to me! xoxo-Julie

  • What an amazing boutique bridal shop! I love the fact that you have the whole salon to yourself when you book an appointment. I went to this shop looking for a particular gown. I loved that the stylist showed me similar options for comparison but didn't push me away from what I was really looking for. I live out in AZ and they were so helpful in coordinating pickup/shipping. Highly recommended!

    Awww Tina look at you- you looked absolutely stunning on your big day. Thank you so much for taking the time to write us such a sweet review! It means everything to us! Congratulations! xoxo-Julie

  • Michele - A Bridal Boutique is absolutely lovely. I made an appointment, and had the pleasure to work with Julie. She was so attentive and nice, not only to me, but to my Mom, Grandma, & 4 bridesmaids. We were introduced with Lavender Champagne, and immediately felt comfortable in her boutique. I loved that you can browse thru the dresses yourself and never feel rushed or pressured to buy something. Julie made sure that I felt comfortable in my own skin & assisted me to buy the perfect dress on my wedding day. Michele - A Bridal Boutique has the best wedding dress selection for any body shape. I had a wonderful experience, and recommend this Boutique to any bride looking for a place to start in dress hunting! Thank you Julie!

  • I purchased my wedding dress from Michele - A Bridal Boutique and had the most amazing experience! From the moment we arrived, with our personalized sign and lavender champagne to the one-on-one private appointment with Julie, and of course the most beautiful selection of wedding dresses, Julie made finding my dress one of the easiest, relaxed, and fun experiences. I would highly recommend this Boutique (and Julie!) to any bride or mother of the bride in search of their dress!
