I had such an amazing experience at Ellyne! I am so glad I choose this store to get my dress! They are amazing to work with and such a great environment to be in! They helped me with my indecisiveness! Tina Was the best thay I could have ever imagined we were so lucky to have her! I got my dress and picked out bridesmaid dresses the same day. I would recommend this store to anyone I know!
Only Local Tuxedo rental shop in Lincoln with onsite inventory. Great selection of retail suits with an amazing price point's as well. Suits to purchase starting at $150 for the coat and pants!
Its a lot of fun to country line dance to their music or go to their Czech days the polka is great as far as polkas go.
Avoid stress and avoid Ellynne Bridal at all costs. Yes, it is true their dresses are gorgeous. It is true your initial experience may or may not be terrible. What is more than likely, is anything thereafter will fail to meet even the most minimal of expectations and leave you stressed and worried about your gown, alterations, and your big day. Save yourself the strife and go elsewhere.
Service was amazing and so was the staff. Very helpful and polite i will recommend anyone that is looking for the top wedding dress with high quality treatment and dresses go here.
I did end up getting my dress at Ellynne's - barely. And I say that because I went in September to pick out a dress (wedding was the following September.) When I got my dress in (8 months later) it was waaaay too small. Consultant ordered an 8. So my measurements were reviewed, and consultant should have ordered a 12. So... then they had to re - order the correct size. That took another 3 months. Went there to try on bridesmaid dress anyway. Thought I would give them the benefit of the doubt. I went in with 4 girls. None of my bridesmaids really knew each other and there was only one room to change in. So they were all uncomfortable. Also, had girls that were sizes 6, 10, 14, and 16. Since all they carry is sample dresses, only one girl could really try anything on. That was kind of a slap in the face to my other bridesmaids. Found a possible dress, but wasn't sure how it would look on everyone since only one girl could fit in the sample - plus most of the ones we were interested in were about $300. Was not paying that. Went to Davids bridal with NO appointment, we're helped anyway, everyone had their own dressing room and could all try on a dress. Next, went back to ellynne's to finally pick up my dress (about a month til my wedding). It fit, minus the minor alterations. Set up an appointment to discuss alterations, but was roughly quoted $200 by one lady. Went in for alterations appointment. The lady said that she was contracted thru them, and gave me her prices. She quoted me $450 for the first step, another $30 every time I came in to see her, plus whatever else needed done (keep in mind this was no where CLOSE to the other estimate I was given.) I told her that was way more than I expected. Told her I was quoted $$ from so-and - So the other day. She totally threw that other lady under the bus, said she didn't know what she was doing, sucked at alterations and didn't know why she was even working there. She was completely rude about it, so I took my dress and left. Got it done at stitching in time for $250. Going back to when I picked up my dress, I needed a veil. Found one I loved and ordered the right length. When I tried it on at home, the right side stuck out horribly. I brought it back to town with me. My maid of honor dropped it off, put it on her head head and showed them what was wrong with it. Went in to pick it up after they "fixed it." I put it on again in the store. Nothing was different. By this point I was pretty angry. I said this needs fixed today. I'm getting married SATURDAY! The owner says "come back in an hour." So I did. They had cut it up by the comb on the right side. It layed a little flatter after some messing around with it. I took it an left. Didn't last long. By the time I made it to the ceremony, it still stuck out BAD. I had to have my pictures edited to correct it. But didn't matter because it was still on my wedding video. Just my 2 cents.
The regulars are very very friendly, and the drinks aren't overly pricey! A great place where you can have a beer and relax. I love it here! Lucked into this place just a few weeks ago. The bartenders are fantastic and the music is not too loud.
my friend's wallet went missing at the end of the night downtown and she filed a police report, only to find out that it was at Bodegas the entire time it was missing. When Bodega's contacted her, she went to get it. Upon it's return, her money was missing. When she asked about it, one of Bodega's employees told her "it's a consolation prize, honey, just be glad you got your wallet back." Who wouldn't be angry at hearing that? She had already reported it stolen when it was first missing and she told the Bodegas employees that she would be following up with the police report. When she got home, the BODEGAS BUSINESS PAGE ON FACEBOOK sent her a message saying "that was lame, you're a BAD PERSON." I am outraged and I am not the only one. They have lost my business and I hope this story reaches others. If anyone would like proof, I have a picture of the message and would be happy to share. This is not good business and it negatively reflects on Lincoln. I would suggest Duffy's, O'Rourkes, or Jake's if you are looking for a great bar and better service.
