I cannot say enough good things about Altar Bridal- both the store and people are fantastic! After several attempts at dress shopping at many of the popular retailers in town, I had become less than excited about the whole process. What is fun about not being able to look at the dresses, dealing with rude/stuck-up staff, and the pressure tactics used by many other stores? The first time I visited Altar Bridal, I knew it was something special & different. The look of the store is open and modern and all of the dresses are out on the racks for you to look at. The owner, Dede, is so welcoming and friendly and the rest of her staff is awesome as well. You can tell that Dede loves what she does and wants all her brides to have a fun, relaxing experience. I am an extremely picky and indecisive girl and Dede has been so patient with me. I have not bought THE dress yet but that is probably because there are so many fabulous ones to choose from! I know with Dede’s help, I will find my dress & I wouldn’t dream of going anywhere else!
Altar was the third spot that I went to look for a dress my first day out. It had been a long day and was getting into the evening, I was ready to call it a day, but when I walked in that all changed. The atmosphere, the service and most importantly the dresses pepped me up immediately. I was instantly excited and had a boost of energy working with the girls and ultimately finding THE dress. I left that evening with a few in mind, but there was one that was on top of my mind. 2 days later I was back and bought THE dress. I could not have made that decision without their help. They were professional yet personal to your specific needs and wants and it made all the difference in the world and helped an indecisive person decide what I truly wanted. From the service to the selection, Altar made my experience one of the best in my wedding planning and I would highly, highly recommend them to everyone!!!
I absolutely loved my day at Altar! The boutiquey-feeling store is so inviting and cozy and the staff is more than welcoming and friendly. Upon entering the store I had already fallen in love with the dresses in the window. Inside the selection was great and so was the quality. I loved the set up of the store with large fitting areas for individuals and a great set up of community stands in front of the mirrors. The Saturday I went in was a trunk show complete with food and beverages for me and my guests to enjoy. After finding my dress the Altar associates continued giving me full attention bringing out accessories to try and other details to play with. They were not over-whelming in a sales-pitch sort of way, they were trying these things because they were having fun with it, too. I cannot say enough, the day I bought my dress from Altar was one I will always remember.
You have to go to THIS PLACE!!!! Here's my story... I bought my dress at another bridal store in september 2010 . I am a wedding photographer and by the time my wedding got closer I had already seen 3-4 brides that had dresses similar or just like mine. I no longer felt special or content with my dress. I was ill over the thought of trying to find a new dress in a months time! So I went to Altar bridal hearing that they do a lot of custom work and they took me in ( even though I didn't buy my dress there) feeling my pain and they were able to turn my dress into a beautiful one of a kind number! It seriously looks special and unique and they listened to EXACTLY what I wanted and somehow magically were able to transform my "popular" dress into one that was just for me. I am SOOO glad I went there - you seriously couldn't ask for better customer service!!!!!!!!!!
As a middle-aged bride getting married for the second time in a small ceremony, I was looking for a short wedding dress. Other bridal shops did not have much interest in helping me. When I came into Bridal Solutions, Jeanny suggested to me that they could shorten a gown for me. This allowed me to pick a dress I really liked! Kim assured me that she could do the alterations I wanted. With each fitting I went to, I was a bit apprehensive, but each time Kim's work exceeded my expectations. She took an A-line gown and shortened it to a sheath, and it looks awesome! Thanks to Jeanny's suggestion and Kim's fantastic alterations, I now have exactly what I wanted in a wedding dress. I highly recommend Bridal Solutions!
My experience with Something White Bridal Boutique was nothing short of amazing! I had been to 2 others bridal shops in town and it was here that I found "the one". As a very hands on kind of gal, one of my favorite things about SWBB was the freedom that they gave me. When I first arrived at the shop, we reviewed my budget and style I was looking for. After that I was given a handful of clips and set loose to browse through the dresses myself, marking the dresses I wanted to try with the clips. At the same time, the girls were busy pulling dresses for me. I loved the one on one attention and just the vibe in general at the shop, I truly felt like queen for the day. I would highly recommend SWBB :)
I had a horrible first time trying on dresses at a local bridal store (not Bridal Solutions). After my appointment, I called Bridal Solutions and they saved the day. They let me come into their store without an appointment 15 minutes before they closed. I told them I would make another appointment the following week so I wouldn't be rushing them. They insisted that I come anyway. Olivia helped me pick out three dresses as soon as I walked in and I fell in love with the first one I tried on. The following week I came for a real appointment to make sure this dress was THE ONE. My wedding was only a short five months away and I was able to buy my dream dress right off the rack.
Bridal Solutions was just wonderful to work with! After I ordered my dress, I was informed that the designer of that dress did not make it anymore. Since the one in the store was a bit too small on me, they were kind enough to do the alterations on the back of the dress for free! I was overwhelmed by their kindness and the extent they went to in order to give my mom and I a good experience. The owners are some of the sweetest people we have ever met. When people ask me where I went to get my wedding dress, I tell them Bridal Solutions. And I tell them they will have a great experience. They are reasonably priced dresses with the money going to extremely deserving people.
I had the most wonderful experience here! My sales associate did not pressure me to buy anything! She would even tell me if a dress looked terrible on me, which I appreciated! I did end up purchasing my dress here, and it was a LOT cheaper than I was expecting! I told my sales associated my wedding colors, my budget, and my style and the first two dresses she picked out I fell in love with! Then, once I tried them both on, we knew instantly which one was 'the dress'! It was the most painless experience of my wedding planning thus-far, and I will DEFINITELY be sending my friends here for their bridal gowns!
I’m 11 years into a happy marriage, but recently thought of Altar when looking for a special gift for a good friend. I selected a beautiful red fabric rose as a hair accessory and was impressed with the representative’s creative suggestions on additional uses for the flower, such as pinned at the waist with a sash. I also appreciated the warm and attentive service I received even though I was not in the market for a larger-ticket purchase. I was excited to walk away with a unique and memorable gift. Of course, I couldn’t resist a peek at the gorgeous dresses … what an amazing selection for today’s brides!
