  • We went to this store looking for a particular dress. I called ahead to make sure it was there. The consultant put my daughter in everything but that dress, and did not listen to what my daughter wanted. I felt like we were at a car dealership where the salesman tries to sell you features you don't want or need. It was obvious my daughter wasn't happy, almost in tears, but the associate kept pushing for the sale. I drove 5 1/2 hrs for this appointment; what a waste of time.

  • Perfect I wouldn’t have gone to anyone else! The dress I tried on that I really liked was to small so she went and got a different dress that she thought I would like that would fit and even before I tried it on I knew it was the one.

  • Bridal connection in ankeny was more than helpful in our planning process. They got together everything we needed and were great with communicating back and forth with us.

  • I cannot say enough positive things about this store. I found the dress of my dreams and feel like a true princess. I was there during their Bridal Styling Event and found the perfect accessories that matched! I can't wait for my wedding day this September!

  • I cannot even begin to put into words how wonderful my experience was at The Bridal Connection. The moment I walked into the store, I was acknowledged and helped. My dress consultant was wonderful and listened to all of my needs. I went to the Bridal connection on September 20th for their Justin Alexander Trunk Show. It was my first time even trying on gowns, so I didn't know what to expect and i wasn't planning on buying anything. My consultant answered all of my questions and made me feel better about the process. She then told me that most brides find their dresses in the first 6 they tried on. To be honest, I thought she was joking. I was completely wrong. I found my dress on the FIRST try! The first Justin Alexander dress I tried on, I ended up purchasing. Even when I was unsure if it was the dress (but everyone else seemed to know it was), she talked me through it and told me to try on as many as I wanted to. It only took one more for me to realize that the first one was it. The ... Read more

  • The bridal connection had its positives and negatives. The store front was very professional, and extremely clean. The front receptionist was polite and helpful. Our consultant gave us a tour of the bridal salon and was overall friendly. However, once we started trying on dresses she did not listen to what I was asking for. She tried ending our appointment early, and was trying to convince me that I was overwhelmed with dress shopping. She was visablly upset that I was not going to be purchasing a dress that day and it seemed like I was only a sale to her.

  • We had driven at least 2.5 hours to come and check out their selection of prom gowns. When we arrived we were not greeted right away. The receptionist was short and said that we wouldn't be able to look because consultants were busy. I had told her how far we had driven and that we just wanted to look, but she sounded rude and continued to say we weren't allowed to look. The assistant manager finally stepped in and appoligized and said she would be able to take us right back. After all the mess up front we did enjoy our time. Would rate better if quality of service when we arrived was better handled.

  • I bought some accessories here to go with my dress, they were originally rude to me when I stopped in to just look at belts (which are still a pretty penny) but quickly changed their tune when realized I was going to purchase one. The owner came out and totally redeemed her staffs behaviors. They had attempted to sell me the one from the rack that was stained and had some beads missing. She went in the back and quickly came out with a new one after I pointed out these issues. I had tried on dresses there prior, but purchased elsewhere.

  • I loved my experience at Bridal Connection. They made my mom and I feel so comfortable and welcome. After choosing my dress, I required three separate rounds of alterations. They were always able to accommodate my schedule as I was driving from 1.5 hours away for fittings. They only charged me for the first round of alterations! My dress was an absolute stunner. I received compliments all night long on how gorgeous my dress was and how well it fit!
