I found dresses for cruises and special events at Leonardo's Bridal that were spectacularly altered to fit at reasonable prices and with style. Just love the accessories from hand bags to shoes to jewelry. I have recommended this boutique to many friends. When it was time for our daughter to find her wedding gown we looked forward to the superb service and great advice for pulling the wedding party together. Her dress was specially ordered from Italy and she needed a cape for a November wedding. Mr. Leonardo found them in Chicago and brought several into the boutique for her selection. From the tiny satin rose buds on the flower girl's dress to the custom shawls for the bridesmaids to special beading on grandmothers dress, to fitting the out of town groomsmen to leading us through the process, Leonardo Bridal is THE best at complete, confident, professional and personal service. All of our wedding party felt that they were pampered and treated as family and all for a very affordable price. We stayed under budget but came out looking like a million. I know how he does it... referrals, referrals, referrals. When you treat people the way they treat people, paying attention to the details and making everything come out right the first time, you are bound to be successful. We never had to worry. They met deadlines and pulled off the impossible. Congratulations on the NEW location and the large showroom at the corner of Wooster and Detroit Road still in Rocky River.
Unlike all the people below me, I had an amazing experience at The Perfect Bride in Rocky River. I went in there to look for bridesmaids dresses because I had gone to multiple places on the westside, Catan's, Dora's, and David's Bridal and had no luck. When I was in those stores I didn't feel special - just like another person walking through there door. When I walked into The Perfect Bride, I really felt like they spent time with me, listened to what I was looking for, and really helped me find what I was looking for. Carly, the sales consultant, was the one who found the dress we are going to go with by listening to what we liked, didn't like and actually picked out a dress I would have never thought to have the girls try on, and it was perfect. The comments below about them being WAY more expensive than anyone else are not true. Sure, you can go online and order a dress from hundreds of online distributors for cheaper than any salon in Cleveland if that's what you choose to do. I found the quality of the dresses to be far better than anything my girls tried on at any other store. The dresses were made better and that's something that people will be able to see at the wedding. I would recommend The Perfect Bride in Rocky River to anyone getting married. They treat weddings how they should be treated - not as a factory like many other bridal salons.
So unlike other reviews I read, I had a completely different experience. I went to The Perfect Bride after it was recommended to me by a friend that had an amazing experience and got a beautiful dress. I made an appointment with my mom (which anyone should do for any bridal shop) after being completely disappointed going to David's Bridal and Pat Catans. I was dreading looking for a dress after both of these experiences. The store has a great website that helps in getting an idea of what the store offers and what the dresses actually look like. After writing down the numbers, I went it and it was awesome. What some people might take as snotty, might have been misinterpreted as them not being pushy. Renee was awesome in helping me find the dress of my dreams! It wasn't crazy expensive and the quality was amazing. I was so happy with how everything turned out, that I picked out the bridesmaid dresses from there as well ( and they were beautiful). And not only that, Miranda the seamstress was amazing and my dress fit perfectly!!! She as well was a pleasure to work with along with the rest of the team!!!! I would recommend this place to everyone and anyone. Be careful of reviews you read of bad service. Check it out for yourself!!! I promise you won't be disappointed. I just got married two weeks ago and couldn't wait to post this!!!! Danielle
My daughter had an extremely short window to find a dress (purchased off the floor), have alterations & be able to take it with her when she moved to her new home - less than a three week time period. Every person, from the owner to the seamstress, made it her mission to accomplish the goal. The price of the dress includes alterations! Every bride should have such an experience in a beautiful shop with such lovely ladies. She picked up her dress yesterday and left town today. Wedding in two weeks! Brava, ladies! Blessings to you!
The Perfect Bride is was the perfect place to find my wedding dress. I received dozens of compliments from my wedding guests asking where I got my dress. The Perfect Bride offered elegant/ unique wedding dress options at an amazing price. I visited 5 different wedding dress shops and fell in love with my dress at The Perfect Bride. The Perfect Bride INCLUDES ALTERATIONS and the staff felt like family. They focused on every detail and made sure my dress exceeded my dreams. I highly recommend The Perfect Bride!
They were unbelievably accommodating and made me feel so comfortable. They hadn't booked any other appointments during my time. They weren't pushy and never asked me what my price range was (as did the other place so that they could keep trying to push the dresses at the higher end of my range). They really made me feel special and most importantly didn't laugh when I burst into tears wearing my wedding gown.Their level of personal attention is commendable!
Yes! I finally found my dress. Great service and gorgeous dresses. Plus, I got a free gift - A $2000 canvas tote bag. Prices range from about $1500-$3000. Alterations are included in the price of the dress which is a huge bonus. No pictures allowed here. They also sell these gorgeous sashes that I want to purchase to add to my dress, but they're an additional $400-$500. I'll have to find something similar on http://etsy.com for $40-$50.
My daughter found the perfect wedding dress at Leonardo's. Even though it was a far drive for us, having Leondardo's Bridal handle the wedding dress and bride's maid dresses was well worth it. Their professionalism, care, and knowledge were outstanding. They spent all of the time that was necessary for my daughter to have the most beautiful look possible. I would use them again and again!
They will make you feel like they have all the time in the world for you. The biggest applause was that they are not pushy, they take great care of their sample dresses and don't have dirt and make up stains on them like some of the other places I went to. I honestly can't think of anything more you would want from a place like this so I highly recommend The perfect bride!!
I absolutely loved the staff at the perfect bride! They helped me pick out my wedding dress that matched my style, personality and venue perfectly. They truly helped make my wedding day a day I will never forget. I've never felt as beautiful as I did on my wedding day wearing my perfect dress!
