This was the fifth bridal salon I went to. I have to say I had an amazing experience here. My mother, one of my bridesmaids and I were in town for the wedding show and had some time after to kill. I had tried on about 60 dresses in Raleigh and had not planned to try on dresses while in Asheville. After google -ing bridal shops in the area to kill time we called Wedding Inspirations to see if we could stop by to browse without an appointment. We walked into this very cute boutique and were immediately greeting by a consultant. Although we did not have an appointment they were able to squeeze me in to try on 2 dresses. One of the two I tried on was THE ONE! I was thrilled. The consultant stayed with us bringing out veils, jewelery and explaining bustling. She also put up with us taking lots of pictures. She stayed with us beyond the amount of time she said she had and was very patient. They call all of my information wrote down the dress and details. I will be back to purchase the dress in March. Great service and amazing dresses! Dress #61 was THE ONE.
This was the first place I came to try on dresses and it was awful. Our sales associate was so incredibly rude for no reason. I was very nervous to be trying on dresses for the first time and she made it even worse. I'm a pretty easy going person so I didn't lose my cool but she was definitely pushing the envelope. She made several comments saying I wasn't allowed to go in a specific room because my budget was only $2000. I didn't even want to look at the really expensive dresses, I have no idea why she kept bringing that up. I never once showed any desire to look at anything above $2000. I almost seemed like she was trying to embarrass me in front of my friends.
My bridesmaids traveled from out of town to be there and the associate's attitude really ruined the experience. They've all been dress shopping for their own weddings and couldn't believe the snide comments coming out of this woman's mouth.
I fell in love with one dress and would have bought it THAT DAY but I couldn't bring myself to give my money to a business that employs such rude people.
Stay away from this place.
I was a recently in your boutique to get a brides maid dress for a wedding I'm in this summer. I guess you don't really work with people who are not a size 2 because I couldn't even try on a dress that was my size. Also I explained to you that I was losing weight and I told you to order me the size I wanted and you still order what I measured! Now I have to take my dress which is 5 SIZES TOO BIG to a lady and she has to remake my dress! Plus I paid you 20 extra dollars for a plus size dress and the dress has to be redone! Im REALLY upset with your business and I will not recommend anyone to go to such a dump! The staff there were rude and not helpful at all! I will tell every person I know getting married not to go there. I'm a hairdresser and I do tons of weddings every year so let it be known I will not be sending you any business! Plus the dress was WAY OVERPRICED! I know how retail works but you can't expect people to go broke when buying 1 little dress! So unprofessional! I also have to give a star rating and if truth be known I would give them a -5!!! DONT GO HERE CAUSE ITS A WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY!!!!

I am from Nashville, TN and I just had my wedding in Asheville, NC. When we asked who the best planner was in town, we were told about Gwen at Wedding Inspirations. Gwen and her team did an amazing job with everything. She is a true professional and her work is incredible. Everything with our wedding surpassed all my expectations and this would not have happened without her. If you need a wedding planner Wedding Inspirations is the way to go! Also, if you are looking for a dress or bridesmaid dresses Wedding Inspirations has a fantastic selection. They have everything, dresses, shoes, garters, guestbooks, etc.
