I've already referred one of my friends to Ann Matthews for her bridal consultation and she had an equally wonderful experience. Long story short, folks, I showed up unannounced, without and appointment, during their busiest season (prom and graduation) and they were quick to accommodate me for my first experience trying on bridal gowns. They set me up with a consultant, Veronica, right away and we started the dress selection process. The overall experience has rivaled that of Kleinfeld's or Bridals by Lori (if you are addicted to those shows like I am). By far, the coolest thing about my experience was that my consultant really listened to what I liked and didn't like about the first few dressed I tried on. She then went and pulled a dress I hadn't originally been interested in based on her observations. THAT dress ended up being MY perfect dress! I couldn't be happier with the designers they carry, the quality of products, the great discounts for your whole wedding party, and the competitive pricing they have on bridal accessories. This boutique is family-owned and operated and you can tell by the pride they take in YOUR experience. I recommend them now and I will keep recommending them! Thanks Ann Matthews!

My mom, sister and I recently visited Ann Matthews for my bridal appointment and had an absolutely wonderful experience. Not only was the staff attentive and kind on the phone when gathering my information for the appointment, but they were also very adept at finding styles that were very much in line with what I was looking for. Ann Matthews is a family business and was therefore much smaller and customer focused than the bridal department stores. The entire staff went out of their way to make me happy. It did not feel like they were forcing me to buy a dress from them, but rather wanted to provide comprehensive information about the dresses and designers to help me find a dress that made me happiest. I also appreciated their honesty about prices and their truly caring demeanor. I ended up finding the perfect dress and ordering it on the spot, and they even gave us free lotion and chapstick as a "thank you" for supporting their business! I would highly recommend them to others, and I am looking forward to revisiting them for dress fittings and to purchase a veil.
I recently bought a wedding gown at Ann Mattews Bridal and I couldn't be happier with my purchase! I was thrilled to work with Ashley who nailed my taste and personality immediately. She was very hospitable to my family and me and made us all feel at home. I can't thank Ann Matthews enough for such a great experience! All of the dresses that I tried on were of the highest quality and apprearance. I got to evaluate a variety of different designs and cuts before narrowing in on my style (which I really appreciated). I also loved how I got to flip through a book first to help evaluate my personal taste and budget. I feel like this is something I had not experienced at other stores and was very beneficial to the success of the dress finding process. All in all, I feel at ease and confident about my purchase and would highly recommend the quality and experience to any future brides!
