Loved this Christian-owned business! Had a little trouble getting permission for my mom to come to the fitting area but seeing how uncomfortable I got, she obliged. I only tried on 6-8 dresses before I found the perfect wedding dress! Pretty good prices too! Except accessories, did not buy them there. Will be back to try bridesmaids dresses. Thanks for making me feel like a bride! The owner even came and talked to us, very involved in the day-to-day, which I like.
I just wanted to look around with my mom for a few minutes,but they insisted we do an appointment. We gave in and they took me to the fitting rooms and had my mom sit on a couch near the mirrors. I was NOT allowed to chose which dresses I tried on. I told the girls what kind of dress I was looking for, and they pulled the exact opposite each time. I finally showed them a picture of a dress I had tried on at another store and liked, and was asked WHY I DIDN'T JUST BUY THAT DRESS. I wasn't even allowed to put the dresses on myself. The woman made me take my clothes off and followed me into the fitting room. NORMAL dress shops at least wait until you have the dress pulled up before they come in. They finally brought in a dress I did somewhat like, and they took my name and number and wrote down the dress I liked. I got a different dress from a different store thankfully! They have called me TWICE asking me to come back and look at the dress again. Would NOT recommend this place!
I was in town visiting church street bridal (which is amazing) and thought I would stop by Absolute because I saw an advertisement. I walked into the store and was politely harassed by the employee working there. I was looking for both a flower girl dress and a wedding dress. The employee continually asked me to make an appointment in the afternoon. I explained I couldn't because I was from out of town and couldn't hang around waiting for the appointment. The employee practically followed me around the store asking "are you sure you don't want to make an appointment", over and over again. I had no intentions of pulling any dresses out, I simply wanted to look. They had a very small selection of size 16 dresses that were on the rack. There's no way I would have ever ordered anything from them.
This place is sketchy! You are ambushed the second you walk in and they are very pushy. I ended up finding a dress here and when I got it home, I realized all the tags had been cut off. I called and asked who made the dress and they wouldn't tell me saying how they don't want people to discover where they find their collection. Pretty sure that isn't even legal. Avoid this place!
Awful, rude, intrusive, and rushed service. And when this was brought to the attention on their facebook business page, it was dealt with even more unprofessionalism and a sales pitch. Not worth your time.
