  • They were so nice and accommodating. I'm a plus size girl so I was getting so frustrated trying to find a dress that was flattering. I am also a budget bride and they had a great selection of discontinued dresses. I think I tried on 6 of them before I found the one. The service was great and they're gowns are gorgeous. Also got my veil from them. Very happy with my experience here.

  • As a bride on a budget, I wasn't expecting to find much when I walked into the Bridal Emporium. Was I wrong! MaryAnn was so helpful in finding dresses that were within my price range, including negotiating the price on some discontinued dresses...one of which I said yes to! She's a very good judge of body type, and selected dresses that fit me very well and were highly flattering. Best of all, she was very inclusive and encouraging towards my mother when she wanted to help me get dressed and make decisions. The atmosphere is very no-pressure, and MaryAnn is kind and conscientious about letting you take the time you need to decide on the dress that is best for you. She is also very accommodating, and willing to recommend quality outside vendors for alterations if price is really a sticking point. Bottom line, The Bridal Emporium is a place with a lot of integrity and intention to let you really enjoy finding a wedding dress, and is a definite must-stop-by on your journey to fin... Read more

  • The Bridal Emporium was very helpful to me in finding my wedding gown. I found the dress of my dreams very quickly after my arrival. The staff were very friendly and helpful. They helped me find the style I was looking for and were very respectful of my budget. I would definitely recommend this store to other brides!

  • My sister and I both got our wedding gowns here. We loved their selection and helpful staff. They treated us both like family and were very accommodating when I moved out of town. I would recommend this bridal salon to anyone!

  • After an unpleasant experience at a small, snobby bridal boutique, it was so refreshing and wonderful to walk into the Bridal Emporium (with just 30 minutes notice to them) to be warmly welcomed by the friendly and accommodating staff. They allowed my sister and parents to browse all of their gowns at their leisure and pull any that they liked for me to try on. When I asked to try on a new dress from a display, they immediately accommodated this request! The woman who helped me try on my dresses was so friendly and gave me honest feedback without being pushy. In addition, they stayed within my established budget with every gown they showed me, without trying to give me dresses that were too pricy. When my dress came back from alterations, they had it pressed and steamed and waiting for me two days before the Big Day. They were just lovely! Also, Summer, our seamstress that works with the Bridal Emporium, was fantastic. She made the alterations literally seamlessly. The dress w... Read more

  • I have had nothing short of an amazing experience each time I go to the Bridal Emporium. I visited several shops before heading to the Bridal Emporium. I felt instantly welcomed, appreciated and attended to even though I wasn't the only bride there. The staff was great and encouraging when I found my dress! It was nothing like I had found at any of the big bridal stores I went to previously plus significantly less expensive. I go back every few months just to put it on or show close family members. They have been great about me visiting and holding my dress until it is time for alterations. I would absolutely recommend for the experience, price and selection.

  • From the moment I entered the Bridal Emporium my experience was amazing. I went with my mom and sister to try on dresses. Alissa was very knowledgable and helpful. Once I decided on my dress, my bridesmaids and mother of the bride went back to find dresses for them. They were so helpful in the fitting and ordering process. When my veil and dress arrived to the store they called me both times. They always helped me carry my things to my car. The bridal emporium has an amazing seamstress for alteration that comes to the store. Summer was amazing, I told her my vision of my dress and she nailed it! Very professional and good at her job! The day before my wedding day they steam your dress for free, so its perfect! The store also has jewelry, shoes and accessories! One stop shop with the best service you can find. I went to davids bridal, alfred angelo, many other bridal shops and this was by far the best in experience, knowledge, friendliness, professionalism and most importantly they had ... Read more

  • It was a pleasure to buy my dress through The Bridal Emporium! I was set up with a personal attendant the day of my appointment and was given the utmost care from the moment I walked in to the moment I walked out, with my dress in hand! Mary Pat sat down with me and took the time to hear what I was envisioning and then explain a bit about the store and where best to look for the styles I had described to her. There was never a time I felt rushed or pressured while being helped into my dresses in the fitting room and/or with deciding on my final dress. While I was showing my dresses to my family, multiple staff members from the Emporium would comment on how beautiful I was, what they liked about the dresses and helped me see the best of every dress I tried on. I was continuously encouraged and given suggestions on how to best wear all the dresses. Size never mattered, negativity never entered the room for a second and I walked out feeling uplifted and inspired to see myself as a beau... Read more

  • I am very pleased with my service from Bridal Emporium. I couldn't believe the great deal I got on my dress, veil & belt! Staff is very polite, & Summer, the alterations lady is FABULOUS! Together we created a custom gown that fit perfectly to my body. No pushy sales like you might find at other boutiques.

  • Being on the super plus size range of clothing sizes, I was skeptical of finding my dress (or any to try on) at a smaller bridal shop but they had a great selection and the employees are incredibly sweet and helpful!

  • I got my wedding dress here and all 6 of my bridesmaid dresses. My wedding dress was beautiful and exactly like I wanted it to be, however I paid over 300 dollars for alterations and i was ensured that my bussel would hold no matter what. My bussel snaps broke within the first 30 minutes of the reception and I was stuck walking all over my dress the entire night which was a bit annoying. The other problem we had is that they ordered all my girls bridemaids dresses way too big. Even when my girls told them that they wanted a smaller size they refused to order it that size so all my girls had to pay almost as much as the dress cost in alterations. They were not professional in handling the situation. The one girl was told by the lady doing her alterations that she would be better off buying a whole new dress. We were not happy with their services and I would not recommend getting bridesmaid dresses there or alterations.

    responded with the following comments.

    We're sorry you were unhappy with your bridesmaid experience. It is unfortunate, and we wish this could have been discussed with us directly so we could have researched the details of your order, reviewed our documentation, addressed your concerns, and ultimately, worked towards a solution. Since you didn't include your name, and we only spoke with one person last year concerning a bridesmaid issue, we are unable to fully address your specific situation. Despite your bridesmaid situation, we are happy to hear you were pleased with your bridal gown. Since we refer to a handful of seamstresses and do not know who did your alterations, we are unable to address the issue with your bustle directly. Using the measurements we take, we compare them to the measurement guide provided by the designer of the dress chosen. If your measurements fall into a certain size category, we will recommend that size. However, some bridesmaids do ask to order a different size with the intention of losing weight. We understand such reasons and will never force a bridesmaid to order a size she does not want to order. If concerns are expressed about the size we recommend, we will double-check the measurements and the size guidelines, and in some cases, we will ask the bridesmaid to try on a dress in our recommended size to make sure it is a size the bridesmaid feels comfortable in. When all parties are on the same page, we ask the bridesmaid to acknowledge and formally agree to the measurements and size agreed upon. We take the steps we do during the ordering process to protect the bride, her party and ourselves. Please note, the "right size" does not mean you will not need any alterations. It is not unusual for dresses to fit right in the waist and/or hip, but need to be brought in at the bust and/or need to be shortened. Also, we do not make any income on the amount of alterations needed so our only goal is to make sure the right dress size is ordered.

  • I went into the dress shopping experience expecting it to be very difficult since I had pretty much no clue what I was looking for (one of my only original requirements was that it was not strapless... I ended up with a strapless gown that I adored). I had tried shopping at one other bridal shop before visiting The Bridal Emporium and it was not a very good experience at all. What I loved about my first trip to The Bridal Emporium is that they did such a great job with honing in to what I seemed to be liking or disliking and continued narrowing down the selection until I found the dress that I knew was perfect. I had no issues with finding times for my fittings since the seamstress was flexible and willing to work in the evenings. There were two things that kept me from giving a 5 star review. The first was the musty smell that I noticed every time I visited the shop. When I picked up my dress the day before my wedding and took it out of the bag at the hotel, I was disappointed t...

  • I was very pleased with the service of The Bridal Emporium. I did not have an appointment when I dropped by and the woman who helped me was very accommodating and made me feel welcome. I was also very surprised by the selection and quality of the dresses. They had so many beautiful dresses unlike any I had seen at other bridal stores. I ended up purchasing a dress that the saleswoman picked out for me, I doubt I would have pulled it off the rack. She listened to what I said I wanted in a wedding dress but I felt like she put a lot of effort into making sure I saw options that I might not have mentioned or even thought I could "pull off" as well as bringing me dresses exactly like I said I had wanted. I appreciate a salesperson who seems genuinely happy to try to help me find what I want and I definitely felt that way at The Bridal Emporium. The only thing I would suggest is to look around for someone to do your alterations since they don't offer that service in house. I really liked th... Read more
