  • 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 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!

  • 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!

There is a great selection of dresses in all different price ranges and I found my dress the very first time I went dress shopping!

  • PLEASE, PLEASE go here. I bought a dress by my house at a local bridal salon and when it turned out it wasn't 'the one,' I decided to drive 2 hours down to the Wedding Embassy. I am so glad I did. The space is GORGEOUS and so is the selection, and everyone is incredibly knowledgeable and kind. I couldn't decide between 2 dresses so Alison helped me basically design my own and the changes were super affordable! Also - Monika the seamstress is a wizard - I only had to have 1 fitting :)

  • I honestly wish this store combo'd as a venue because the interior is perfection! Wedding Embassy is such a lovely spot with a beautiful selection of dresses. Although I did not find my wedding gown here, I did have a fantastic experience visiting and trying on dresses. The consultant was super friendly and I loved how she has you place clothespins on the hangers of the gowns you'd like to try on (always love when a shop let's you browse their inventory first!) She also did a great job of choosing gowns for me to try on based on what I did and did not like. This is such a lovely store with so many designer and style options to choose from!

    Julie, thank you so much for your super sweet review! Even though you didn't find "the one" with us, we really love that you took the time to share your experience and are thrilled that you enjoyed yourself! Congrats!! WE wish you so much love and happiness in your marriage! (PS - there is venue, Old Platform 6, in our building now and it looks a lot like us!)

  • I had a bridal appointment scheduled to try on dresses. I was asked to come in before my appointment time to complete a survey of what I was looking for, I arrived early and it was pure chaos. I ended up getting brought into appointment 15 minutes later, then was placed in a room. I started picking out dresses, then I was asked to move to a different room. I was moved to a small closet sized room and my attendant went missing. I asked if it was normally this chaotic, I was told someone called out so it was a business decision not to cancel any appointments and to just double book everyone. I stayed patient as long as I could, until I finally told the attendant when she returned I was done. I called a few days later to speak to the owner and possibly schedule a different appointment. Unfortunately, Megan was rude and arrogant, making a mockery of the fact I wanted my own attendant to focus on only myself. She stated if I wanted no one to talk to my attendant and the boutique to be quiet... Read more
