My bridesmaids and I all had a wonderful experience at Debi's Bridal. Four of my bridesmaids, my mother and my aunt all joined me on my hunt for the perfect wedding dress. I had made an appointment for myself at 11 and for the bridesmaids at 12:30. Monica greeted me after I filled out a short form for the store. She asked a few simple questions about what I was looking for before she turned to the racks. My entourage also took to the racks selecting a few dresses to try on. Monica systematically placed the dresses in the dressing room. As I tried on each dress, she didn't say much but she definitely listened! Because of that she pulled three additional dresses and one of them was THE DRESS! Then it was time for the bridesmaids hunt. By that time, the store manager stepped in to assist Monica with finding some good options. The final dress again was the favorite of my bridesmaids! Monica and the rest of the staff were very accommodating for my group. We returned shortly before they closed that day to try on the dress one more time. There were several groups already there so by the time there was space for us it was close to closing. They even stayed late to allow us to make our purchases. Not only did I find my dream dress with all of the elements I was looking for but my bridesmaids also found a great dress that they agreed on!! If you are looking for a great experience, I highly recommend Debi's Bridal. They had a great selection of unique dresses at great price points. The staff is very nice and knowledgeable. The small space packs a punch!

Make sure you get Paloma. Within one minute of talking to me, she easily sensed my style and vibe. She chose great dresses to try on and made sure each one looked stunning when I stepped out to show my friend. She has a talent for reading people and is so sweet and genuine at the same time. After looking at a few places, I really must say the shop itself was awesome. It's pretty inside, with a boutique feel, great lighting, windows, lots of full mirrors and places for trying on without crowding other brides. Often, I've seen shops with huge selections but with unattractive shops/warehouse feel or the flip side, stunning storefronts but limited selections or outrageous price points. This was worth a visit since you have the boutique feel inside, but with a nice selection and price. Paloma was kind, professional (she confirmed my appointment and was so professional, yet personal at all times during the fitting) and she made it an enjoyable experience. The only downside to this is that drinks are not allowed by the owner. So, no mimosas or champagne...unless you find the dress, then the owner may allow it. That said, Paloma's grace, charm and genuine interest in you looking great for your big day made up for any lack of beverages. I could go on and on about her. The dresses were gorgeous and at decent price ranges. We were impressed with the variety of designers and PALOMA!
How can people be so crude. The store just opened. So when you get your dress from the internet, let me try it on.? You probably spent some good money on it, and you too would like nothing to happen to it. All these early reviews look to be slanderous. Looks as if other bridal shops trying to kill the competition. Would you rather have the bridal shop tell you that dress doesn't look good on you or your friends? As far as the owner/manager how do you know its a her, seems as if you have a problems with authority, or old bosses. Do you know if the alleged was not just fallowing company policies, and decided to remedy it by opening a shop for themselves. Think before you post. I personal have not gone but plan to give any independent shop a chance. Update to latest review Obviously the store owner made a wise choice on not hiring this individual. This person who made this off the cuff review single handedly ruined there son or husbands chance of a good start in this business. When you have a chance you can invest your money and start your own business and higher whom ever you like. Most employers merely agree to see if the person qualifies for the intended position, and you do what is right for the business. Race and gender is a false blame today's society is too divers and have equal opportunity.
