  • 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

  • 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 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!

  • 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!

  • 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!

  • Megan the owner, Linda the seamstress, and everyone else at the Wedding Embassy are absolute gems, from my first shopping appointment to the final dress pick up appointment, they constantly make you feel like a friend and are so accommodating. A week before my final dress fitting, I was feeling a bit of panic and second-guessing my dress so I called Megan to ask if they would be able to alter the neckline of my dress and she fit me in for a consultation with Linda the next day to talk about what I wanted to do and she literally cut the dress while I was wearing it and it turned out amazing! They even took my veil that I purchased somewhere else and had it pressed and hanging perfectly with my dress for the pick up... I really can't recommend The Wedding Embassy enough, top notch bridal salon, absolutely the best in the area, and possibly the best in the entire state if I'm being honest.

  • I had a wonderful experience finding my wedding dress at wedding embassy. Everyone there is very Friendly and helpful. When i went for my first appointment, I was so nervous and overwhelmed, but the woman (I am so sorry her name has left my brain currently) who helped me knew exactly what I wanted and helped me find my dream dress. They were also so accommodating when I wanted to drop in a few times to reassure myself of my decision and to try my dress on when I had my hair and makeup trial. The seamstress also did an amazing job altering my dress to fit me perfectly. I highly recommend going to wedding embassy to find your dream wedding gown

  • The owner of the Wedding Embassy is an absolute doll! She will assist you in anyway possible and make sure that your dress is everything you’ve dreamed of. The styles they have to offer are gorgeous and completely affordable. The seamstress Linda if you are lucky to get her is BEYOND TALENTED! The staff is great I’m so pleased with how my dress came out and so happy I chose the Wedding Embassy.

  • Would not have wanted to get my wedding dress from anywhere else! Megan and the Wedding Embassy staff are amazingly kind, knowledgeable and flexible! I had been to a couple of salons, including the Wedding Embassy in my search for a dress. I knew I had found the dress, but at a salon I did not want to purchase from. I went back to the Wedding Embassy after loving my experience so much and shared my woes with Megan, the owner. She is a dream-maker, for she informed me of their contract with the designer of my dream dress and ordered a loaner of that dress THAT DAY! She also informed me that if I still loved it when I tried on the loaner then I could order the dress through the Wedding Embassy. Best news ever!!! I not only worked closely with Megan, the owner, but also with the amazing Monika. She is one of their seamstresses at the shop and is a magician with a needle and thread! She is so good at what she does, explaining to me what she thinks should be taken in and fixed to make th... Read more

  • The Wedding Embassy was amazing and I would absolutely recommend them to other brides! Their shop is beautiful and I found my dream dress there the first time I went. Their staff was amazing and patient with me. They even were able to let me slightly alter my dress to add a little extra sparkle to the bottom to make it perfect. From the first time I went, to every fitting and the final pick up of my dress, everyone was amazing!

  • 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.
