Bea's Bridal Nook was the first wedding boutique I visited. It is a fantastic small boutique with a very homey, welcoming feel. I found 'The One' for just under $1000 after trying on 6 beautiful dresses. I went to my remaining salon appointments, tried on dozens more dresses 2-3x the price and none of them compared so my mom and I went back to Bea's to purchase ""the one"" a gorgeous satin gown with swarovski crystals and everybody at the wedding thought it looked like a dress for royalty. They have everything from classic-vintage-trendy dresses in their selection, all at affordable rates. Loved them!

I went to Bea's this past December and ended up purchasing my dress there. So far I've had a great experience. My appointment was with the owner Jeannette and she was very friendly and helpful. Maybe things have changed? Is this place under new ownership?
I'll write another review once my dress comes in and I have the alterations done, but they were very helpful to me.

This was our first bridal appointment, which we made about a week in advance. It is a very small shop that can only hold 2 brides at one time. We arrived on time for our appointment only to be told that WE had cancelled our appointment. And they knew that because they called us yesterday to confirm and WE cancelled when confirming. They claimed we moved to Sunday. I said I had NO calls from them, showed them the caller ID showed no calls from them, but they insisted we had indeed cancelled. Never an apology saying that something had definitely gotten mixed up, only a ""we do not have any room for you today. We are full up and someone else is in your slot."" The girl helping us was rude, affrontive and basically ruined our very first bridal shop experience. Would recommend people steer well away from this shop. Try Celestial Bride on South University for a personal, pleasant and meaningful experience.

I had my very first bridal appointment on Saturday at Bea's. I admit I was late arriving because of traffic, but my sister-in-law had arrived before me and told them I would be a few minutes late. I got there and the girl rushed me into a fitting room without giving me any chance to talk or breath. She rushed me throught the entire appointment. I would put on a gown, show my friends and family, and then she would rush me into the next. She cut off our conversations and talked down to me the whole time. I didn't know what I was looking for exactly, it was my first appointment, and she acted put out because of this.
When my bridesmaids and liked the dress on the mannequin and I asked to try it on, she rolled her eyes and said, ""Alright, but it isn't going to be what you want."" I had to remind her 3 times that I wanted to try it on. Sure enough, it was the one I liked best. However, she didn't even ask if I was interested in it. She said, ""Ok, that's the last one.""
I left upset and frustrated. Thankfully, I went over to D'Anelli's after, where they were wonderful and helped me find the perfect dress.
I will NEVER recommend Bea's to anyone.

I just bought a gown here. My experience with them so far has been wonderful. The sales person pulled three dresses for me. I absolutly loved all three. I ended up buying one of them and a veil. The two ladies that were there with me were kind and helpful and very attentive. I had a great experience and would recommend this place to anyone.

THIS OWNER, NAMED EMMY, DIDN'T BOTHER TO EMAIL ME THE INFORMATION THAT SHE PROMISED SHE WOULD ABOUT THE DRESSES SHE CARRIED. SHE WAS BEYOND RUDE ON THE PHONE AND MADE IT OUT LIKE SHE WAS DOING ME A FAVOR BY EVEN TALKING TO ME!!!! EVEN THOUGH THEY CARRY A BRAND THAT I WAS INTERESTED IN, I WON'T STEP FOOT INTO THIS STORE AS A RESULT OF HOW RUDE THIS EMMY, THE OWNER WAS TO ME!!!!!!

This store basically ruined my wedding dress experience. Pretty much as soon as I walked in they pointed me to the clearance section. I chose a dress that was too small and they assured me that I could have a corset back added and switch out the strips of blue fabric for another color of my choice. My dress was only $300 so I thought I was going to get a great deal! WRONG. They pretty much tricked me into buying the dress and handed me a $900 bill for alterations AFTER I had purchased the dress! This just seems unethical to me...what they should have done is just be honest, the dress doesn't fit, it's a floor model so just don't buy it! If you're wondering I'm the only person who this has happened to? My soon-to-be sister-in-law just went to Bea's and chose a dress on clearance that doesn't fit and so they suggested adding a corset, I warned her against it.
Aside from the high cost of alterations I was determined to have a good experience and went in for 3 different fittings. The seamstress sent me to a very expensive bra shop in cherry creek and told me to buy a certain bra. When I tried the bra on it was really high in the back, and my dress was very low, so needless to say it wasn't going to work, so I just bought those bras that stick on your chest. The seamstress did not make a big deal about it and just fitted the dress with that bra. THEN when it came time to deliver my dress it came a day late because her sewing machine had broken. My mom opened the dress and took one look and it was obvious that it had not been pressed. When I had tried it on at my final fitting it looked fine standing still but on my wedding day the dress did NOT hold up. I was constantly pulling my dress up alllllll night loooooong. It kept slipping down in the back and gave me these really unattractive back boobs. I think it is the responsibility of the seamstress to make sure you look good and she totally failed. The bustles that she added also started to fail halfway through the night. In pictures of me standing still the dress looks ok but any action shots show how awful the dress was fitted. We think that Donna, the seamstress, never actually finished the dress because her machine malfunctioned, but she was never willing to admit that.
So about a month after my wedding I called Donna and told her how unhappy I was. She called me back the first time but then I spent the next seven or eight months trying to get some of my $900 back. If you pay for an expensive meal and it's terrible you shouldn't be charged, and that is how I felt about this situation. She said several times in emails that she would refund something like $100 (meager) and asked for my address at least 5 times. I finally gave up because I didn't want to keep thinking about how awful my wedding dress turned out.
They were nice at first but as soon as an issue popped up they were totally unwilling to help...I even called the shop to ask for help and all they did was tell Donna to call me. They took no responsibility and said I should have bought the bra they told me to buy, six inches of it would have been showing in the back!! Beware of Bea's, I'm not sure what they think customer service is supposed to be but I agree with the review that says that Bea would be appaled if she knew what her shop had turned into.
I wish I had gone to David's Bridal.

I just created a profile to write a review on my horrible experience at Beas Bridal Nook.....
I met my mom and one of my best friends and I was so excited to start my wedding dress shopping! This excitement was quickly squashed. I was running 10 minutes late because I was rushing from work, and my mom and friend arrived early. The associate snapped at my mom that she had another appoitment coming at the next hour. I am typically not a late person..and I felt terrible; however, when you're spedning 2,000 plus on dress you don't expect such rude comments.
The owner (Emmy) acted really irritated towards my mom when she asked for a drink of water. Most bridal places offer bottled water or champagne. She also snapped at my mom when she looked at a dress that appealed to her. She told my mom this dress was for someone else, and my mom wouldn't be able to look for this. That is fine, but anyone who is any good at customer service could offer alternatives to this dress.
Emmy also snapped when I told her I prefer straps vs. strapless. She simply came out and asked why I want straps. After going in the back to choose dresses for me, she rushed me through the whole process. I felt as though I was inconveniencing her...... I really ended up liking one of the the dresses and it was like she wasn't hearing me. She finally came out and said that she doesn't have anything for me, and that she'll have to contact me later. She made a half-attempt to gather my information, and then she rushed me out.
I had been to one other place, and my experience was wondeful. There were hugs, compliments, champagne offered, and lots of great service. I had a feeling Beas Bridal Nook wouldn't be for me when I went online to look up their phone number and saw all the bad reviews. Needless to say, it is not about drinks being offered and compliments; however, this experience is supposed to be special.
Maybe the owner was having a bad day, and I think the longer I was there she became a little warmer because she could see how horrified we were.
Save yourself a waste of trip, and choose one of the many other bridal experiences the Denver Metro area has to offer.
I made an appointment with Bea's to find a dress for my wedding that was only 4 months away. I had a designer in mind, who's dresses I knew Bea's carried, but I knew I might be too late to order a custom gown. However, I at least expected the salon to try to work with me. Bea's was TERRIBLE, I have never felt so worthless. My mother lives in Montana and my friends live in Texas because I just moved to this area, plus my fiancee and I were still in the process of picking out a ring, so I went to the store alone and didn't have a ring on my finger and I was wearing jeans because I had just finished riding my horses. I am pretty darned sure that the entire staff assumed I was just there to try on dresses for fun and wasn't really getting married. They wouldn't let me try on any dresses from the designer I liked, and they told me it was too late to even call the designer and see about getting a dress on rush. They only let me try on 'cheap' dresses that were on clearance, none of which fit the description of what I was looking for in a dress. Then they tried to convince me that those dresses were 'what I really wanted' and my ideas for my dress were 'unrealistic.' I managed to hold in the tears until I left the store, then I called my mom and told her I was no longer excited to get married because I had just been treated like a dumb little kid... I am 25 years old and don't appreciate being humiliated. Well, the good news is this - the joke is on Bea's. I went to Dina's Bridal and ordered my PERFECT gown from my chosen designer on rush order, it came in on time and everything was beautiful. Bea's lost my business (they didn't know it when I came in, but I had a LARGE budget and Daddy's plastic to pay for my gown... maybe they would have treated me differently if they had thought I would spend thousands of dollars in the store that day). Needless to say, Bea's was very disappointing. Oh and Dina's Bridal across town has about 10 times the selection of gowns in stock for you to try on, plus friendly staff that work hard to please. Don't even bother going to Bea's unless you look rich and want to be told which dress you should buy.
