Wonderful experience, Gabrielle is the best!

I had an absolutely wonderful experience at Vows and would recommend it for anyone who meets any of the following criteria: 1) doesn't mind buying off the rack, 2) has a very limited budget, 3) wants the boutique experience without the boutique prices, 4) might be a little bit picky, and 5) is indecisive.

1) Most of Vows' dresses are buy-as-they-are, i.e. they don't have them in other sizes and you don't order them. They have about a dozen dresses that you can order, but 95% of the store is off-the-rack. Most of the dresses are probably a few years old, which is why they are now being sold at Vows at a big discount.

2) If you want a quality dress on-the-cheap, this is the place. I am not a bride that has been fantasizing about my dress for years and years, and thus didn't want to spend a fortune on it. I set my budget at $1000 (pre-alterations) and went to a few places that sold dresses within this range, and Vows definitely had the highest quality dresses. It can be tough to find dresses that don't feel/look cheap for less than $1,000, but the Vows dresses are all discounted substantially, so for example my dress cost $999 but was originally ~$4000. 75% discount...don't mind if I do!

3) I didn't think I cared about having a boutique experience before I went shopping, but given the range of consultants I met at various places, trust me it makes a big difference. I went to one place where the lady was very nice, but not particularly knowledgeable about wedding dresses and not good at simulating what a dress would look like after alterations. (I'm 5'1"", so basically no sample dress fits me, so a proper simulation is key); at another place the consultant seemed to just want to sell me a dress ASAP and be done with it. At Vows, they treated us like the only customers (side note: for a while, we were. It's worth taking a morning/afternoon off of work and going on a weekday morning/afternoon. We had the place almost to ourselves for 4 hours, but they said on Saturdays they can have 60+ brides in there at once. Gross. The peace and quiet

Good experience at Vows

My experience was very pleasant at Vows Bridal. Sara was extremely helpful and patient as I tried on about 20 dresses, going well past the alloted time of 1- 1 1/2 hours. I was looking for dresses under $800 and did find quite a few, but several had stains or were torn, particularly under $600. I didn't end of buying at Vows, but I had a good experience there.

Depends what you're looking for

I heard great things about this place so I checked it out, but it's not for me. I don't particularly care about designer name dresses, and didn't really know that's what the place was about. Dresses start at $1,000, but the majority are mugh more expensive. Dresses are organized by style - sheath, A-line, etc, because they pretty much only carry 8 and 10s, being once samples. And since they were samples, many dresses are in iffy shape. I had a weekday appointment and was constantly rushed. Saleswoman was nice enough, but kept bringing my dresses that were too small or not what I described as liking. Must put 10% down if you want them to hold it for 5 days (not business days). If you decide you don't want the dress, you don't get your money back - it just goes toward some other product they carry (invites, save the dates, veils, another dress). And if you don't spend the money in a year, they don't give it back. I only found one dress I liked at all. It was really fabric but I wasn't crazy about it. And I certainly wasn't willing to hand over 10% right then and there. Basically, if designer names are what you're looking for, might as well try here. If not, look elsewhere.

Huge Fan of Vows

The service was wonderful. Geraldine only showed me dresses in my price range. When the ones I picked out didn't really work for me, she picked out a beautiful Ulla-Maija gown that I would never have chosen for myself...but when I put it on all the other brides and saleswomen crowded around saying, ""That's the one..."" And, it was 100% silk, originally retailing for over 5k.

THANK YOU - Selection and Pricing

Hopefully my sister doesn't see this! We were shopping for months and I've been going crazy, I like weddings and want her to be happy but I can only tolerate shopping for a little bit.

Thanks having a large selection and affordable designer wedding gowns - it's been a rough couple months but now it's over and she's found a great dress.

Huge Selection - Great Customer Service

Vows should be renamed to Wows! I was getting discouraged while searching for my wedding dress but Vows turned everything around. The customer service exceeded all of my expectations.

Rip Offs

All I can say about Vows is that the place is overall a rip off. Though they have some good designer names, they are older styles and many are in really really bad condition not to mention they have nothing above a size 4 that doesn't look cheap or tacky. I also noticed their designer line that they carry, Liv Harris, are basically Mikaella dresses. I have tried Mikaella dresses on at other bridal shops and I think they are decent, price wise and the styles. However, when I went to Vows I tried on a bunch of dresses that I thought were Mikaellas, some I thought I tried on before and thought I was trying on again, and they ended up being Liv Harrises. I suggest if Vows wants to create their own line and become respectable designers, they should start with their own ideas.

Designer gowns at a fraction of the cost

People who say that VOWS doesn't have great prices have never shopped at real designer stores and gotton perspective. I got a $7000 Carolina Herrera for $1800 at VOWS. I realize that is still a lot of money compared to maybe a David's Bridal, but if you want a designer gown, this is the place to go.

I had the best experience at VOWS! I couldn't have dreamed of better.The staff was so friendly, helpful and professional. The gowns were marked at fabulous prices. The store was clean and nicely organized.
I highly recommend this store!
