Many years ago I purchased my gown from Dwin. She took great care of me and everything was exactly what I dreamed for my wedding. But at the time of my marriage she told me that she felt I should not be getting married based on things I told her about my then fiance. I did it anyway. It was not long after our marriage vows that the abuse ensued and then escalated to scary levels. I suffered for several years and didn't know what to do. Then one day I remembered Dwin telling me that I could call her if I needed someone to talk to. So I called her and as I told my story she offered advice and support. When I came to her black and bloody she gave me love and comfort and helped me rise from the place I had fallen into. I want to thank this business for their support and efforts in assisting me to find my way to safety on the exit of an abusive relationship. They have cared for my children while I tended to the many demands that followed the exit. They offered me a safe haven when none other was available. They fed me when I was hungry. They bought my baby diapers when we had none. Through many years and after a long hard battle my abuser is now behind bars and my children and I can live safely. Now I see this review posted on them and am so sad because it is possible that those were my children. So if you see little children at this business please offer compassion and understanding as you really don't know why they are there.
I just wanted to say Thank you too the staff here for being so caring and accommodating with our situation. Everyone has been so nice and it's been a pleasure to do business with them. This store just goes to show that you can't judge a store by its front. Initially we came to this location because it was close. Now we will return because it's so much more. Walking in we were greeted with smiles and felt welcomed even though we didn't have an appointment. The further into the store we got the bigger our eyes got. Lights turned on and the store just keep growing. It was amazing. They have thousands of dresses of all sizes, colors and styles. We had no idea what kind of wedding and bridesmaid dresses we were looking for. We were shown a couple and then left to browse ourselves. We absolutely loved being able to look without feeling pressured. Needless to say this was our first and last stop. I would recommend anyone shopping for a dress of any type to check Bella Sposa before any other. We had extenuating circumstances and they were extremely helpful to fufill our needs. Thank you Dawin for all your help and the conversations we shared. We will definitely be back.
This may come off as fake compared to the previous two, maybe it's just a new year and staff but they were all wonderful to my sister and her bridal party. While we didn't get to pick things off the shelf, we went through books, they got our sizes, and they brought us a ton of dresses to look at. They have payment plans for those in need and the staff was incredible. At one point when my sister got her dress there, they had all the associates mooning over her and helping out. As almost all of us are plus size in the party and with the moms, we had a great experience, no fat shamming, lots of dresses, and lots of kindness. It inspired all the girls, and one of the moms who is getting married to go back for our own Alfred Angelo dresses. (And the prices weren't that bad) Call ahead and get an appointment and everything goes great.
