I had heard horror stories and was a little worried about coming to Gesinee's Bridal - but I am glad I went anyway. Unlike what other people say: I was not charged for anything frivolous or over the top charges: I did not pay to try on dresses, i did not pay to have my dress pressed and ready for pick up and I did not pay to store the dress there. I visited the store twice and tried on a lot of dresses and my salesperson was wonderfully patient carrying dresses back and forth and giving suggestion and doing whatever I asked. The second time I went back, I had a much better idea of what I wanted and they helped me find the dress. As a matter of fact, they didn't have the exact dress, they had a *slightly* different version that was $400 cheaper - totally worth it!!! When it came time to decide the size of my dress... first I got lucky because I tried on my size (in regular clothes I am anywhere from an 8 to 12, but with the gown I was a size 14 - a perfect fit. I don't understand how the numbers work, but I know they are different than regular clothing). Second, they showed me a size of recommended sizes per body shape/weight/height and ultimately it was my decision (they did not force *anything*). When I went for my fitting, I was worried that the seamstresses would try to tell me what to do: not in the least. I insisted that all I wanted was to add a "bustle" - i did not want to hem the dress (I wanted to wear heels that were high enough - big mistake on my part). The point is, everyone at Gesinee's was very professional and they listened to what I wanted and did not force anything down my throat. I *highly* recommend this Bridal shop. In addition, if you don't want overly expensive gowns, SAY SO when you walk in and they will take you straight to the second floor. Lots of dresses around $1000. THANK YOU GESINEE's (by the way, I got married Dec 30, 07 - so I am writing as a 100% satisfied costumer, a month after the wedding)

I had a most enjoyable experience at the Concord location. The service was good and they have a excellent selection of gowns. My only complaint is the price. It seems that I could not find anything under $1,000 and that doesn't include alterations. I don't know if they just didn't have any in the type of dress I wanted or they chose only to show me high-end dresses.
We had a very pleasant experience going to buy my daughter's prom dress. Chelcie helped us and was professional and helpful. I am very pleased with Gesinee's Bridal and their staff.
