I have to admit to having been a bit skeptical going into Affordable Bridal...the sign outside the building only says "BRIDAL", and the dresses on display in the window weren't really my style, but I was running out of time, and I had a deadly trifecta going on...I'm a big girl with a not so big budget, and my wedding was to be in 2 weeks at the time I walked in their door! I went in expecting the worst, but WOW, am I happy to say that I couldn't have been more wrong! After trying on several dresses, some of which were great, and a few of which were a miss, the owner, Kim, was able to take some time away from the register, and that's where the magic happened. I was starting to get frustrated because none of the dresses I tried on was quite "it", but Kim hung right in there with me. We found a basic dress that was ok on its own, but nothing particularly special. It wasn't long before Kim had that basic dress turned into a custom creation that was perfect for me, and nothing like anyone else has! We added some soft, sheer sleeves and a pinch pleat neckline, and the dress was transformed. Kim even added a brooch that she herself had wanted to purchase, knowing that there were no more available like it, just because it added that last finishing touch. I picked up my dress today, just a week after we ordered it, and it fits perfectly and looks beautiful! My mother and sister went with me, and were also thoroughly charmed by Kim and her staff. My mom went so far as to say that she would definitely buy her formal dresses there if she has need for one in the future, just because she felt so comfortable and at ease...that's a big statement, coming from a woman who hates shopping and greatly dislikes being the focus of attention!! My wedding is this Saturday, and I can't wait to walk down the aisle in my lovely custom gown...you can bet I'll be recommending Kim and her staff to anyone who will listen! Thank you so much, Kim, for making my special day that much easier and more beautiful.

I purchased my first bridesmaid dress from Amore Bridal back in 2002 for a friend's wedding. I was very pleased with my service there! The owner and staff were so helpful and friendly in assisting me, that I have since purchased 3 more bridesmaid gowns (2004, 2006, 2007). Each time I felt I had such attentive service, friendly staff, and personal attention. I have never felt like they were just looking to make a sale. As a larger woman (I wear a size 24/26), it is often times embarrassing to have other people helping you into and out of form fitting undergarments and dresses. I have never felt awkward, embarrassed, or humiliated at Amore, and having been humiliated at both David's Bridal and Rosie's Bridal in the past, that really means something to me. Needless to say when it was time to purchase my own wedding gown in 2011, I chose Amore Bridal and Tuxedo. I had waited until 10 weeks before the wedding to even start looking at dresses, and they were able to help me, figure out what dresses would make it there in time for alterations, and keep me on my tight budget. Once again they were completely fabulous and made me feel beautiful for my wedding day. There really isn't enough that I can say for Amore. I recommend them to every person I even overhear while shopping who is looking for a wedding dress, bridesmaid dress, or formal wear. Their customer assistance, attention to detail, and continual effort to go above and beyond time and time again is something that you don't get a lot these days.
this store was just a little shop on the strip and turned into another home for me and my family. I walked in looking for a dress within my single mother's budget and she pulled it off as if it was a princess's. this lady not only put my mothers mind at ease about my dress but also took care of all of my bridesmaids and my mothers dress at short notice. she has went over and above the expectation i was thinking for me during this whole process. she started out as a sales rep and turned into another aunt to me. her store has blossomed into a beautiful boutique and still to this day keeps growing not only in products and customers but also the customer service. i would never go anywhere else when it came to anything remotely close to a situation as this. prom dresses, weddings, special occassions....THIS IS YOUR ONE STOP SHOPPING PLACE AT A REASONALBE PRICE. she not only dried up my tears and put a smile on my face but also gave me and my mother sleep back. THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING YOU HAVE DONE FOR US AND I PROMISE YOU THIS WILL NOT BE THE LAST YOU SEE OF THE DAVIS' AND MADDOCKS'. We hope to see you at the wedding and enjoy your selves.
