  • I thought shopping with 9 of my family members was a crazy idea, but they not only had no problem with that, they made it so special! Most places said they couldn’t accommodate a group of that size, but here they greeted everyone with champagne, told us to take our time, and we had the whole salon to ourselves. It was exactly how I imagined dress shopping after years of watching it on tv. I went to another place in new haven, and they basically just left us on our own and had multiple brides in a tiny space. Here, I was their only focus and everything was about me and my family and my dress hunt. I bought the first dress I tried on!!

  • Michele- A Bridal Boutique is amazing. Julie is so helpful, knowledgeable and fun. She treats all her customers like family--my aunt also got her dress from her. Each appointment is private, with lots of space for your family and bridal party. I would definitely recommend visiting this boutique!

  • We have the same name and same favorite color... it was meant to be! I absolutely love Julie at Michele - A Bridal Boutique! From the first time I called to make an appointment and described what I was looking for she said "I have your gown!". Now some people say this because they think they know what you want but Julie really LISTENS to what you want and does not force anything on you. I left her store torn between 2 gowns and she was so sweet in reassuring me to sleep on it and whatever gown I couldn't stop thinking about would be the one! Again, she never pushed me into anything like forcing a decision or even pressuring me to come back to her. I think that's part of what made me so comfortable with working with Julie - knowing she wasn't just looking to have you buy with her but really caring about my decision and supporting that. She is also funny, easy to talk to, and so real which makes the process super comfortable with her. She also does alot of giveaways and I won a free... Read more

  • I can't say enough about Julie, our Bridal Consultant, and our experience at Michelle's Bridal! Julie was "the best"!!! My niece (the bride) is extremely body conscious, and was not looking forward to shopping for her dress. The appointment was just us, which was very comforting. Julie couldn't have been sweeter, and knew exactly what my niece would look beautiful in. It was such a fun and easy experience - AND my niece did say YES to a dress!!!! Thank You Julie ❤️

  • Michele's was my very first salon to visit & it was so perfect! On the way there we had a little issue with finding the place & they were very understanding and helpful with giving me directions over the phone. Pam, the women working with me was so wonderful and really listened to everything I wanted in a dress. My guests and I were there for 2 hours! And we never once felt rushed. They took their time & made me feel so comfortable. And I can happily say that I found the perfect dress & will definitely be going back for all my bridal accessories & alterations. Highly recommend!

  • A pleasure to work with. Worth my hour long drive, very personable and friendly. Many other boutiques and shops a lot closer to me but none even come close to the service I received here!

  • Lissa helped me to turn my mother's 80's wedding dress into my own custom dress for my wedding. She is beyond talented and was so careful with the delicate material, allowing her to reuse almost the entire original dress. I came in to her shop with a vague idea of what I wanted and she designed everything from there; buying material, buttons, and lace to incorporate into the dress to modernize it and spending hours custom fitting it to my body. I am so happy I found her shop and trusted her expertise! She has become a dear friend and I highly recommend that you visit her shop whether you are looking for a designer dress and just need some alterations or if you want to create something completely unique!

  • A bit pricey, but the customer service was amazing. They also have a whole room with clearance and discontinued gowns that are more affordable

  • I found my gorgeous, discontinued wedding dress at Michele - A Bridal Boutique in Westbrook, CT. As much as I loved the Say Yes To The Dress shows, I did NOT want Kleinfelds or a shop that was like a wedding dress factory. I wanted one-of-a-kind sample dresses that I could customize and really make my own. Well, I found it! This was the first dress I tried on, a gorgeous strapless mattelase gown with a trumpet shape. I worked with the manager, Lissa, over the course of 10 months to really make this dress my own. Lissa is FABULOUS!! Always so supportive and an absolute wizard with a sewing machine. She re-designed my dress to make it sweetheart neckline, added lace to the bottom, added a gorgeous belt, and added structure to the bodice to make it fit perfectly. I had several fittings, and each time Lissa worked with me to make sure the dress was 100% what I wanted. I LOVED that I didn't have to order a factory dress, but that my dress was so unique, and I loved that I was able to "visit... Read more

  • This was the very first bridal salon we went to and my daughter found her dress the very first visit! And if found my gorgeous Kathy Hilton dress there, too much to our delight. We were extremely pleased with Lissas professionalism, expertise, talent and the ambiance in this beautiful shoppe. We were never rushed and were always greeted with enthusiasm and made to feel pampered and special.

  • I never thought I would buy a dress local to CT. I could not have asked for a better experience. Lisa made the experience so easy. She is so kind and talented. She helped me every step of the way and was so flexible with me traveling in and out of town. I would not have changed my experience at all. I highly recommend you giving the small shop a chance.

  • Michelle A. Bridal Boutique made me feel like a bride the moment I stepped into the door. The inside is so clean, organized, and chic! I had a large party come with me (9 people) and they were so accommodating- ensuring everyone was comfortable, especially me. Each person who worked there was so genuinely excited about weddings that it made me feel so thrilled to be trying on dresses- I was no longer nervous or anxious like I was at other dress shops. I felt I was able to take my time I even found myself trying on many different styles. I found "the dress" and it was exactly how I wanted to look on my wedding day. They were able to stay within my budget. Lissa, who altered my dress, is such a calming presence and an expert in her field. I travelled an hour for alterations and each time it was so worth it. They were able to work with my schedule and the dress became my favorite part of the wedding. The drive into Westbrook is so beautiful and Lissa always made alterations fun! She th... Read more

  • I can't recommend this Bridal Boutique enough. I had the most amazing experience from the first time I walked in up until the moment I picked up my gown. Lissa made me feel so incredibly special and pretty every time I had a fitting. My gown was beautiful and I received so many compliments on my wedding day. The alterations came out perfect and the customer service was even better. I highly recommend all brides to go to this shop for their gowns and bridal party gowns!

  • The shop is very inviting and cozy, and Julie is great to work with. I was there with my mother, who was picking up her own wedding dress, and when my mom suggested that I just try on some dresses for fun, Julie went out of her way to accommodate me without an appointment and I unexpectedly found the dress of my dreams! She was careful not to let me pick out a dress out of my price point and also had a beautiful selection of accessories and jewelry. We also got my mom's mother of the bride dress here and had a great shopping experience!

  • We were promised our dresses in 3 months and they took 4. They were being sewn the week of the wedding! The day of the wedding two of them fell apart! One literarily in half. You would think for a $230.00 Bill Levkoff dress it would be quality. Then she wouldn't take care of the problem for us at all. Recommend finding a different place for dresses.
