  • After a terrible experience at another shop, I decided to call The Wedding Dress after I saw an Instagram post about a sale. I called and they were able to see me that Saturday. Abbie was super professional and kind on the phone. At the bridal shop I was treated with the utmost respect, Abbie took the time to listen to what I wanted in a dress and she did such an amazing job picking out styles for me to try. I ended up purchasing the 2nd dress I ever tried on (picked out by her!) She has an excellent sense in style and a wonderful way of talking to people that makes you feel comfortable. Lisa was excellent during my measurements. She is very down to earth and agreed to accommodate my crazy work schedule with an evening appointment during a crazy rainy day. She made ordering the dress very easy and carefree. Thank you, The Wedding Dress, for making my experience memorable and enjoyable. I can’t wait for my big day in my beautiful dress! I really appreciate the time you have sp... Read more

  • A special thank you to Abbie for 5-start customer service. She went above and beyond to resolve an issue with a mother of the bride dress. She is compassionate and professional. We had extreme confidence in her and her ability to make sure the end result was nothing but perfect. Her recommended seamstress, Dora, was a joy to work with. She is easy going, pleasant, experienced, positive, and does exceptional work. We would highly recommend The Wedding Dress, and Dora! Sarah & Nancy

  • I am so glad I found my dress at The Wedding Dress - they have an affordable and gorgeous selection with plenty of variety. The customer service is also exceptional - Abbie was always available to answer my questions. She was quick to respond via phone, Facebook, however I needed to get in touch! She and her staff were also so helpful in finding accessories to go with my dress, getting any information I needed and connecting me with a great local seamstress. They were so kind and professional at all my appointments and fittings! Sending every bride I know there!

I fully recommend “The Wedding Dress” in Portland,CT, to every bride shopping for the perfect dress, do not waste your time or money at David’s bridal. I fell in love with every dress Abbey pulled and selected my favorite! They took me in ASAP and on a Saturday no less. Their service and prices were amazing for the high quality dresses they supply! THANK YOU “THE WEDDING DRESS!”

  • I loved this little shop. The staff was very pleasant and made me feel like I was their number one priority. They were not pushy and helped me find my dream dress. I been to other bridal shops with other brides and by far this is the best one. They are however limited what they do carry on the shop floor due to their size but I have no doubt if they do not have that dress they will help you find it.

  • I seriously cannot thank Shelly and her staff enough for all the help with my wedding dress. I of course was the bride that found the dress they absolutely wanted online. Shelly was the only one in the area willing to bring the dress into the store from the designer. When I went for my first appointment I felt like such a valuable customer and like they already knew me. Of course the sample dress sent from the designer didn’t fit but Shelly had me try on a similar dress and used accessories so I could get the look of the dress that I brought in. I instantly knew that dress was the one I wanted. Thankfully I ordered just in time because it was being discontinued. I also went shopping for my dress a year and a half before my wedding and Shelly went out of her way and stored the dress for me till I was ready for it to go to the seamstress. I can’t recommend this shop highly enough and will be sending everyone to them. Thank you Shelly for making what I thought was going to be a stress... Read more

  • I CANNOT even begin to describe how happy I am I came here for my dress! My husband recommended I go here (because of Abbie!!!) I tried on multiple dresses at different stores and I just couldn't find it. On a beautiful Saturday morning, I showed up with my mom and began trying dresses on... After a few, I tried one on that Abbie had picked out, and that was it!! I KNEW that was my dress. It's the most stunning dress!! I'd totally recommend this store!!! And even after the purchase of the dress, they recommended a seamstress who was such a pleasure to work with (and didn't break the bank). Dora also made my whole wedding dress experience wonderful!

    Thank you, Victoria, for your kind words. You made a beautiful bride. XO Shelley and Abbie

  • Great experience! Found the perfect Mother of the Bride dress here after much searching. They carried a great variety of formal dresses not seen at other bridal shops. Lisa, my wedding consultant, was very helpful and honest. I was thrilled that I finally found the perfect dress and actually got to bring it home with me that day!!

  • This was my first dress shopping experience, and it was a great one. I was visiting my mom and this store is near where she lives. Even though I didn't end up purchasing a dress, my consultant Nicole was so friendly, nice and not pushy at all. She worked within my budget and she gave me several super helpful tips on the wedding day and dresses in general. When I tried on a dress I loved but felt something was missing, she suggested the addition of a certain fabric which totally made the difference. The only weird thing was I had to go through the racks myself and pull the first set of dresses to try on, which I was a little overwhelmed by, so I was happy to have my sister and mom there to help. Also, I am a size 10/12 and most of the samples were 1 or 2 sizes too small for me I so we couldn't get the full idea of how something would look in the back because things wouldn't zip. I still wish I lived closer so I could make my final purchase from this store.

  • This little hole-in-the wall boutique was phenomenal! The dress selection was amazing and very affordable. They were relaxed about letting me look through on my own (I really preferred that to the saleswoman pulling dresses for me or hovering over me as I looked). I tried on more dresses here than any other store I went to! And I found the one, in the price range I wanted, with all the details I had hoped for! I ordered right then and there and was even given a credit towards another item in the store which I used towards my veil. They were extremely helpful and laid back which I loved. The only downfall I will say is that my dress took longer to come in than I had planned, I had ordered it so far in advance though that I am convinced they bumped it back knowing that I had MONTHS to spare, which I was completely fine with. One of bridesmaids even ordered her dress here as well, their selection for bridesmaid dresses was also phenomenal!
