The Boutique by B.Belle Events is AMAZING. I have tried on so.many.wedding.dresses at other shops and by the end of it I felt like they all started to look the same and they lacked something special. I thought I was going to have to settle but then I went to The Boutique by B.Belle Events and I was WOWed. I live out of town (~3.5 hours), and I went with my Mother in Law and sister to be. We had the entire shop to ourselves and had the full attention of Alyssa and Belle who helped recommended a few fantastic dresses and listened to my preferences and my wedding style. Their selection of dresses was far superior to local (DC/Richmond and smaller shops in VA and PA) that I had visited. I felt Alyssa tried much harder than other shops to get me the best visual by clipping and pinning me into the dress as necessary, even though it took longer.I never felt rushed, or pressured to buy. In the end, I not only found an awesome one-of-a-kind dress I was so happy to work with Alyssa and Belle that I'm willing to drive as far as need be because I know my wedding dress will be perfect. :-) Thank you, Alyssa & Belle!
I was able to find the dress of my dreams thanks to the lovely ladies that work there!! They treated me like a queen and made me feel like one as well. I would highly recommend them if looking for a wedding dress!! Thanks again for being super sweet and nice and help making my special day perfect.
The B Belle Boutique in Charleston, WV all in all gets a 5/5 in my book. I worked with Belle herself and she went above & beyond to help me.
I had a similar experience as Hannah. She sold me a $2300 for $5600. I had to call JLM couture to get a refund. I moved before my dress was in and so I had her mail me my gown in Charlotte. The dress was the wrong size and completely damaged. She is a crook. Don't listen to anything she says. I'm pretty sure even her accent is fake.
At first, my experience at The Boutique was fabulous. They were so nice and really cared about what I wanted. I noticed they had no tags on any of their merchandise, which I thought was a little sketchy. The gown I fell in love with was a Pronovias gown. I told her (the owner) my budget was $3,000 and her response was, "well, this dress is a little over, but we will make it fit in your budget." I was happy they were willing to work with me, but I decided to not make a decision right away. Something told me I needed to do a little research on it because it just didn't add up. Not to mention she was trying to get me to buy by saying things like, "This dress isn't going to be available soon because it's getting discontinued." I got on the designers website and found another store that carried it and asked how much the price is there and they told me it retails for $2,200. I then called The Boutique back and asked her for the exact price of the gown and she said, "$3,200." I then mentioned that the other stores I had called (total of 3) all had the dress for $2,200. She began to tell me how they must not be authorized dealers, that Pronovias would not approve of them selling the dresses for a lower price, and much more. After going to one of the other stores, I learned there was much more she lied about as well such as, my dress was designed by Ellie Saab and Lazaro. Ellie Saab does have a line of Pronovias dresses however, they are much more expensive (as in the $20,000 and up rage). And Lazaro is not even a designer under Pronovias. Also, the dress was not being discontinued. The lies go on and on. If you are planning on buying from The Boutique, I suggest you do your research. Do not trust ANYTHING she tells you.
