  • Buyer Beware!!! Gail the owner sold me a used dress as new. When brought to my seamstress she showed me where it was expanded, etc. Upon return she acted like she did not know how that happened, but acknowledged there were alterations. How that happened??!! You sold a used dress as new CLEARLY!!! Such an exciting time turned into a nightmare. Buyer beware!! Do you due diligence, don't trust her!! She is looking to make money any way she can!!

  • Stay away if you actually expect to have an experience when buying your wedding dress. The woman Gail, couldn't care less about me and my dress buying experience. I made an appointment, was on time and incredibly polite. She threw dresses over my head, didn't zip them or smooth them out when they were on (so most of the material was bunched in my crotch) and had personal visitors during my appointment. Would not let us take any pictures in the dress for references and didn't even know that we walked out, because she was so consumed with her personal visitor. Not a good way to treat potential customers. The worst part is I really liked the dress, but went elsewhere to purchase.

    responded with the following comments.

    Caitlin, So sorry you were disapointed with the shopping experience at my store customer serve is our number one priority. Unfortunately some of the gowns you chose to try on were a bit to small and therefore would not zip . But we did have many in your size. Forgive me my brother did stop in for a few minutes to report a family matter but left promply before your appointment was over. I regret if that was distressing . Best wishes for a lovely wedding .

  • I loved using google Occasions! Being a size 16/18 I have had issues finding dresses in the past. Occasions had a wonderful selection that not only fit but came in almost any style that I could have wanted. While I went in with an idea of what I wanted, I ended up altering that when I found a stunning dress that made me look amazing! They were also very helpful with suggestions to alter the dress to make it even more unique.

  • Gail is absolutely amazing. I went with my mom to browse wedding gowns with no intentions of getting a dress and I ended up falling in love with a dress that day- this dress is my ultimate Pinterest dream come to life! Gail made my experience fun and and easy with her calm and gentle personality. She was very patient with me when I had trouble deciding on a color (who knew there are different shades of white- I sure didn't). Both Gail and Liz (another team member at Occasions) let me come to the decision on my own but were able to offer great tips and advise along the way. I couldn't he happier with my decision to my get my dress at occasions, I feel like I've made a great friend in Gail look forward to continuing to work with Gail and her team throughout the rest of my wedding planning process.

  • Gail was such a sweetheart!!!!! This was the first dress shop I looked at and within an hour I had my dress. I spent WAY under budget. My dress was one they designed. It was comfortable and I could dance in it (we did a choreographed dance). I got so many compliments and I did not spent a fortune on it. I forgot my shoes once at my dress fitting and she let me borrow a similar shoe for the fitting (tailor is across the street). I highly recommend Occasions. There is something for every budget. My mom even found her mother of the bride dress there! My mother in law spent more on her dress than I spent on my dress, veil, shoes, alterations and additions to my dress combined. It was insane. I'm SO BEYOND THRILLED. I loved my dress so much and it was very meaningful because I was able to add beads from my mother's wedding dress and put my late cousin's initials in blue in the back inside of my dress. The affordability let me be able to do this. YOU MUST check out Occasions!

  • Gail is the reason why I bought my dress there. Her attention to each customer makes the whole difference! I had 6 months to plan my wedding from the day I got engaged to the day of the wedding, and while most bridal stores wouldn't even allow me to look at options Gail helped me get the dress of my dreams which would arrive in time for my wedding! Very pleased with her.

  • Occasions Bridal has been amazing to work with for my wedding dress! Gail was SO sweet upon my arrival and made me feel so comfortable. I had a previous experience elsewhere that was not so warm and fuzzy so this was certainly appreciated. While trying on the dresses she had good advice so what would work with my body and made me feel beautiful in all the dresses I tried on. I came back with more family for the 2nd visit and again, Gail was wonderful! I can't wait to continue working with her when my dress comes in!

  • There are not enough words to truly describe my experience at Occasions Bridal! Gail, Debbie and the other lady that works there are phenomenal! I was not planning to go to their store but after looking on a Saturday without a scheduled appointment and not being able to receive help at Majesty. I called their boutique and Gail told me to come in at that moment. When I arrived there were many girls trying on dresses for prom. Gail immediately greeted us with the sweetest welcome. Once a room was available I began trying on dresses that I selected. Her boutique was the only store I found that had dresses larger than a 12. While trying on dresses, Gail kept checking on me and right when I decided I was about to leave because nothing I selected really looked good on me, Gail encouraged me to try on some dresses I had not chosen. To make a long story short, I found my dress which made a group of ladies cry who were there shopping for prom dresses for their daughters while I had the dr... Read more

  • Warm, friendly welcome and throughout the entire dress selection process made my daughter feel like a queen. We had been to several other dress stores prior and was thoroughly impressed with the owner's attention and helpfulness.

  • Had a great experience with Occasions. I ended up purchasing one of their in house branded dresses and could not have been happier. Gail was so sweet and honest- if it didnt look great she didnt say it did! The dress was unique verses the other bridal shops I went to and the dress was perfect for me! I also had a great experience with Martha (*the seamstress) in making a few adjustments to the dress and getting the fit just right.

  • So first off, I have used Gail for a few different occasions. The most recent being my wedding. I actually found my dress at another bridal shop but was turned off by their owner. So I called Gail, immediately she knew what dress I was talking about and was willing to have my come in and try it on again in her store. I was so thankful because I would have been heart broken if I had to order from the horrible lady! Gail was willing to help me work through my issues with the dress, she offered feedback on how to incorporate my moms veil with my dress and even handmade my hair piece to exactly what I wanted and needed. Gail understood what I meant in every instance. I am so happy that I used Gail all those years ago and went back. I also used Martha for alterations. Although there were a few things that I was not happy about with alterations Martha quickly helped me and made it right. She also did two other dresses for me before my own! Martha was able to take a piece of my g... Read more

  • I visited Occasions in Bethel to search for my wedding dress and it was an awful experience from start to finish. Prior to the appointment, I spoke with Gail and gave her a list of dresses I was interested in trying on so that they could be pulled in advance. She assured me that she'd look for the dresses and pull whatever she had in advance. When I arrived, not only did I have to wait 15 minutes for someone to even say "Hello" but I found out that none of the dresses had been pulled and the list hadn't even been looked at. There were four brides crammed into the tiny store and only three employees to take care of them all. I understand a Saturday being a busy day but why take appointments if you're only going to overbook your staff? It was impossible to move around the store, there was nowhere to sit, and the dress selection was extremely limited. The first dress I tried on was not at all the style I was looking for and was poorly made and when I expressed that to the consultant, she ... Read more
