  • I got my wedding dress here, and I got a beautiful gown. I was pleased with the staff who helped me select my dress and how professional they were. They also gave me some recommendations on accessories that make my dress that much more beautiful. In addition, I was impressed with how they handled re-scheduling appointments that had to be cancelled during the stay at home order in Michigan. The staff worked extra hours and put in a lot of overtime hours to get things done. The only thing I am disappointed in is that when I inquired about the cost of alterations when I purchased my gown, the staff told me to allot approximately 1/3 of the cost of my dress for alterations. Based on consulting with other brides and doing my research, that estimate seemed typical and fair. However, I had to pay significantly more than than what I was told. I understand that small businesses have been hit hard due to being closed for 3 months during the stay at home order in Michigan. Therefore, I expecte... Read more

    Hello Paula, Thank you for voicing your concerns. Alterations pricing differs for each wedding dress based on the amount of work that needs to be put into altering a particular dress to be a perfect fit for the bride. This is dependent upon what alterations need to be done, the intricacies of a particular style, and how the dress fits your body. As you know from your fitting, most of the work that needed to be done on your particular dress was in the hem, which was especially time consuming, labor intensive and intricate, and therefore was more costly due to the number of hours our seamstresses needed to spend on your dress. During each alterations appointment, we go through all of the work that needs to be done and explain the pricing to the bride, and the bride agrees to, and signs for, the price before any work is completed. If, for any reason, if the bride is unhappy with the price of our alterations or does not agree with the work that we suggest having done, the bride is always free to take her dress home and not do alterations through us. Being that you had two alterations appointments with us, we are surprised to hear that you are unhappy with our pricing, as you did not voice this to our seamstress during either appointment. We always welcome questions and concerns and would much rather talk things through with our clients than find out after the fact that our client was unhappy. If you have any future appointments with us, we would love if you would talk with us directly so that we can come to a mutual understanding and agreement – we always want our clients to leave happy! Thank you for taking the time to voice your concerns through this review. Good luck with your wedding!

  • This place is amazing. I was super nervous about dress shopping during the Covid-19 outbreak because I wanted to have the traditional day where I could bring my bridesmaid and mom with me to the store. The Dress Shop offered private appointments at a seriously reasonable rate ($150, with $100 going towards the dress, so effectively $50) which allowed me to bring everyone I wanted to AND included snacks and champagne. Karena was an absolute dream to work with and made the day extra special. She was so good at helping me figure out which dress was the right one for me, pulling items I hadn't even considered and then guiding me through the process of narrowing down my top three choices. Definitely worth the drive to Howell!

  • I am so pleased I went to the Dress Shop to get my wedding dress. From the moment we stepped in the door they made us feel welcomed. They had an amazing selection of dresses and they were organized into specific styles which was very helpful. We were able to go through the dresses and put rings on which ones I wanted to try on. I worked with Jessie and she was amazing! She had awesome recommendations and was great to work with. I would definitely recommended going here to find your wedding dress!

  • I worked with Jessie, she was the best! She started by offering us mimosas, then giving me and my bridesmaids a handful of colored rings. We went through the store and put a ring on everything I liked and wanted to try on. Based on my selections, Jessie added some of her own recommendations. I found my dress, and cant wait to wear it!

  • Everything about the dress shop is amazing from start to finish. I had the best time when I first went to try on dresses and I honestly didn't expect to get a dress that day but the girls there are amazing and they picked out exactly what I was looking for and I got my dream dress from the designer I had always wanted. From there the alterations girls are top notch, I had bought a sample size dress that was quite big on me and they took it all in and it fit like a glove. I would highly recommend making this shop one of the first places you visit for your wedding dress!

  • My dress shopping experience was absolutely amazing! I actually bought my gown during one of their sample sales- it was a dream style of mine- a Maggie Sottero A-line gown and I got an AMAZING price on it! I also bought my veil and a hair comb accessory and people could not stop talking about how beautiful it all was! I also used their alterations department and they did a fabulous job!! You will not at all be disappointed with their dress selection or service! Top notch place!!

  • This is a great store to buy your wedding dress. I was afraid that I wouldn't find anything that I liked. But there are so many beautiful dresses there choose from. Erica worked with me to find out exactly what I liked from each dress I tried on and was able to find me the perfect wedding dress!

  • This shop has everything you want from a bridal gown shopping experience. You're greeted when you walk in and there is always someone to help out nearby. You need to make an appointment but with their text and call features they make it very easy to schedule and/or make changes! They're open to letting you try on your dress when it comes in, even if you drop by! This salon has some of the most beautiful dresses I've ever seen, for decent pricing. As well as some high quality jewelry, sashes, veils, etc. Plus you get mimosas! If you want to have a private dress shopping experience like you "see in the movies" without paying an arm and a leg, this is the place to go!

  • This place was recommended to me by multiple people. I had fun at this place but was not impress with the selection. They barely had any strapless dresses. The dresses were beautiful there but more out of my price range. This place reminded me of a place that wanted to be in New York. Overall good experience. If you are willing to spend more money than this is your place.

  • I found my dress here, in my size, and on sale. I was so impressed with her service that I brought my step-mom back to go dress shopping for her MOB dress. My first visit was amazing and I have no criticism there. There was champagne, the consultant was able to keep my real mother contained (which is no easy task), all while making sure my ideas and visions for my dress were being met. When I came back with my step-mother for her dress, we had a different consultant who was quiet and didn't really offer much assistance beyond putting dresses back. Had that been my first experience, I may have a different view. However, the selection of dresses is amazing and I would recommend this store to brides in SE Michigan.

  • I have never been so upset or disappointed in the 3 months I’ve spent shopping for wedding dresses as I have at The Dress Shop! I called Saturday morning asking if they had a specific dress in store and they explained it was. As they were closed Sunday/Monday, I made an appointment for Tuesday and drove almos 2 hours one way from Kalamazoo to Howell for this one specific dress. I arrived, only for them to have put me in the wrong dress and inform me they sold the dress before my arrival. Over 4 hours wasted of my day for nothing more than an experience with incompetence and a broken heart. If I could award 0 stars, I would, however, I do not recommend to any brides that are looking for a memorable dress shopping experience.

  • Where to begin, we when to The Dress Shop Howell in support of a local business and we had stopped in the past for a tour of the shop and everyone seemed super helpful and professional. The day my daughter, the bride purchased her gown when fairly smooth and the sales girl seem to know her stuff. The only thing was after the purchase she didn’t get the is this your dress treatment I saw other getting. But my daughter does always like all that extra attention so I let it go. Then her two her bridesmaids went together to purchase their dresses (they are her future sister-in-laws). The two girls are very different in size and shape but have similar names (they are in fact sister-in-laws). Anyway fast forward the dresses are ordered, well in advance because we have all been properly warned about how long it will take to get the dresses. The dresses come and the shop order the wrong dress for the wrong girl. They all are wear different styles in the same color and fabric. They would... Read more
