  • I cannot rave about this establishment enough!! My sister-in-law surprised me by taking me there after getting engaged, and from the moment you walk in the door, it is utter loveliness -- the lighting, the hardwood floors, the scent, the staff's warm welcome. You get treated like a queen! THEN I was given such a wonderfully selected range of gorgeous dresses, all within my price range. My ambassador was so patient, creative, and understanding of my desires for exploration. I had BEYOND the wedding-dress-shopping experience I'd dreamed of my entire life. It was SUCH a special day!! On top of all that, I had a very short engagement and it was going to be tight getting my dress altered and ready in time. I went twice to make my final selection, and once we chose The One, my ambassador talked me through every facet of the process and what to expect. The seamstress did SUCH an incredible job and fit my body perfectly! Because I had so little time, they also saved me by having some veils on ... Read more

  • I was trying to find a great tailor in CT, did not buy my dress here, however, I did get a tailoring quote and from the second I stepped into building, I felt very welcome! I also felt they had a great variety of dresses and should have looked there first! Joseph set everything up for my and answered my 5000 questions I had before I made an appointment. He was super helpful and was very knowledgeable about WE products. My tailor who was providing the consultation, Linda, was amazing! She told me the things I needed and things I didn't need (but if I wanted them she could do them). Her customer service was so great and everyone was so nice and helpful! I went ahead and started my fitting and was very happy with the service I walked out with. They all followed the COVID-19 safety protocols and everything was great! Would recommend them 100 times over and over!

  • I had the most incredible experience with The Wedding Embassy. They were my first and only shop. I booked a Champagne Sunday for July of 2020. We had a cute spread of local snacks and mimosas and I was able to bring my mom, mother-in-law, grandma, and bridesmaids. I had no idea what I wanted but had created a Pinterest board of things that caught my eye. Krissy was amazing and had us pick out dresses. I tried on probably 20 dresses and Krissy was helpful at staying in my budget. After trying on dresses, we realized I wouldn't need much in alterations and I was able to play a bit with my budget. Towards the end, she had a feel for my style and pulled a dress that we had looked at but was originally not in my range. I put it on and fell in love. It was perfect! The dress was a Stella York and wasn't in the color combo I would order, so Krissy was so helpful to underlay the correct color for visualization. I ordered the dress and then did a show and tell appointment in January of 2021. ... Read more

  • The Wedding Embassy was the first and only place I looked for my wedding dress. Lorraine made sure I tried on all possible styles to be sure I knew what I wanted, and made the process so easy and fun. I didn’t want a strapless dress but the one I loved ended up being strapless. Lorraine assured me straps could be added and ordered extra appliqués with the dress to make it happen. My dress came in and just before my first fitting we decided to postpone our wedding. The Wedding Embassy had me come in to at least try on my dress and make sure I was still happy with it before they packed it up to store until I needed to do my fittings. Once it was time for alterations, Linda came in and worked her magic! She built the straps while I looked on in the mirror to make sure I loved every part of them. They looked perfect and immediately took away any concerns I had about making changes to the dress. She even added extra appliqués from my dress onto a face mask for me, though luckily I...

  • Although I didn't end up getting my dress from the Wedding Embassy, they were my first spot and I would HIGHLY recommend. Krissy was my consultant and was so lovely. The entire store is beautiful and my private appointment allowed me to have 2 hours there to try on a number of dresses. Thanks for making my first bridal dress experience so stree-free!

  • I loved my experience with The Wedding Embassy. I had been to a few other stores previously and had found some dresses I liked, but none that felt like the one. When we arrived, we were able to look through the gowns and pick ones we liked for me to try on. There was so much selection, and as a plus sized woman, I was so excited to see so many I could actually fit into. They were all beautiful, but still none of the ones we picked out felt like the one. My sales associate had me tell her a few dresses I had seen online that I liked and she picked one dress out for me to try. When I put it on, I felt so beautiful. It was definitely the one, and also definitely not one I would have picked out myself, so I’m so grateful she brought it out! I ordered it that day, and never had any regrets. I also had all of my alterations done through the store, and my seamstress was incredibly nice and did a wonderful job. I could not have been happier with the way everything turned out.

  • I had the best experience at The Wedding Embassy From picking out my dress to picking up my dress from alterations. WE has an amazing atmosphere and really makes brides feel like they’re the number one priority. There are tons of dresses and a wide range of sizes to try on. There are dresses for every price point. Monica is a top notch seamstress, she is so talented! She made me feel very comfortable and the quality of her work blew me away. I highly recommend WE!!

  • I had a wonderful experience at the Wedding Embassy. I went to purchase my dress during a sample sale, and despite them being very busy the woman who helped me with my dress was extremely helpful. She calmly helped me work my way through dresses. I tried on about 12 during my appointment, and ended up purchasing the second one I tried on... which was not at all what I went in looking for! She listened to what I was envisioning for my day, and she actually picked out that dress for me- it was perfect for my big day! Alterations were also wonderful, they kept me from panicking when my dress had to be let out, and my dress was PERFECT the day of. Would definitely recommend making an appointment at the Wedding Embassy, and hopefully you'll also find the dress of your dreams!

  • Linda at The Wedding Embassy recently did extensive alterations on my wedding dress. After buying it in 2019, it was not my "dream" anymore in 2021. Linda had such a vision when I met with her and truly had the most amazing eye to transform the dress in just over two months. She is creative, accommodating, and honest. She is genuinely eager and happy to help. The other women who worked there were always very pleasant and happy to help me in anyway they can. Their shop is gorgeous and clean - I would highly recommend this shop!

  • The Wedding Embassy was the 2nd bridal shop I walked into after feeling defeated from my first experience. The second I walked into the Wedding Embassy, I knew that this would be the place where I would find my gown. The Wedding Embassy is truly a beautiful shop. It always felt like a special experience whenever I was there. The owner Megan, is one of the sweetest vendors I have met. She put absolutely no pressure on me to find a dress and she was extremely down to earth. I also can't say enough about their seamstress, she did an incredible job tailoring my dress. You will not go wrong by visiting this store!

  • The Wedding Embassy is a beautiful place to shop, the management/owner is so great and accommodating. But where The Wedding Embassy really shines is in its seamstresses. My seamstress completely and entirely rebuilt the bodice of my dress and the result was perfection. I loved my dress and would recommend The Wedding Embassy to anyone, particularly any bride who knows they will need extensive tailoring. My only negative was that the young woman who initially helped with my shopping wasn’t very enthusiastic and wasn’t very helpful in getting the dresses on. But The Wedding Embassy came through where it really mattered!

  • I heard about The Wedding Embassy at a small bridal show in a local winery, where they had a gorgeous dress on display and were advertising champagne "show me" appointments... I was sold! I loved that they had a specific price range for all of their dresses that was definitely affordable. I had no idea that when I started dress shopping in March for my October wedding that I was already behind, but The Wedding Embassy made it so easy for me to find the perfect dress. The setting was great for my audience of six and there was definitely champagne. I tried on maybe a dozen dresses but I kept coming back to my all-lace halter dress with a gorgeous back and train. We even did all of the many buttons so I could get the full effect! They found the perfect veil to match and I ordered it all that day. We planned for three alteration appointments but only needed two: one for pinning/planning what type of bustle to create, and the other to try on the completed dress! I took it home two days befo...

  • The Wedding Embassy is not just a dress shop, but an experience. They truly made shopping for my wedding dress the most fun and glamorous experience I could've asked for. Employees are not pushy at all and allow you to search through their racks on your own, they were more than willing to talk you through customizing certain details and offer suggestions. My dress came in a timely fashion and their reminders for appointments and alteration appointments are extremely helpful. My seamstress took care in her work to make sure the dress fit me perfectly. She was also very conscious of pricing and let me know during each alteration appointment. Such a pleasant experience and will 110% recommend to any bride!

  • Getting my dress at the wedding embassy was such a fun experience. They have a great variety of dresses and make the entire search exciting vs overwhelming. I ended up picking a dress completely opposite of what I thought I wanted and it was absolutely perfect! The staff was very professional and accomodating. I highly suggest wedding embassy to any bride.
