The people here are fantastic. The woman who helped me (Carly) was incredibly energetic and attentive; I'm sure she's seen hundreds of brides come through those doors but I felt like she really cared about my wedding--that takes talent! I came in with a picture of a dress I'd fallen in love with, which was 5 times my budget. My past wedding dress shopping experience had been so disheartening (both in options that fit my budget, and in the level of service), that I was basically ready to give up and just make my dress (a task i am capable of, but really didn't relish balancing the long hours of sewing and beadwork with also trying to plan a wedding). I was basically going in to 7th Ave so that my MOH and future MIL would get to have the experience of dress shopping with me--I had no intention to actually buy a dress that day.

Carly absolutely blew me away with her care and commitment. We spent hours there; I loved so many of the dresses I tried on, I was afraid I wouldn't be able to make a decision just because there were too many options. And then I found The Dress--it was perfect; it was beautiful; it was exactly what I wanted--and it was even on sale. I am so glad that I stopped in at 7th Ave; I would recommend them to anyone.

I went to many bridal stores and this is one of the very few I would recommend. I ended up purchasing my dress here. The staff were amazing. Super friendly and helpful. They helped me out SO much and really went above and beyond. I was working with Jackie and would highly recommend her!

This vendor was fantastic one day, and not so much the next. The staff was all very professional and welcoming the most part, but I had a horrible experience with my final fitting and left very disappointed. They also worked with my schedule to provide me earlier fittings and to have my dress ready 6 weeks before the wedding so I don't have too much traveling to do in order to pick up my dress during the summer (the store is 4 hours from my home!). When I went for my final fitting, the store was absolutely jam packed with people trying on gowns, and they threw me right in the middle of all of the new brides looking for dresses, where I was at the most risk of my dress being stepped on, etc. I asked the associate to do up all of the buttons because I had never seen it all together, and she was very rude (eye rolls and everything) and I had to ask more than once before she finally obliged and did up the buttons. The seamstress was very rude and tried to tell me that she took it some place on the dress that she definitely didn't, etc...and was very annoyed when I was asking questions. She also solved all of my problems by saying just to load the dress up with double sided tape so it doesn't gape in the back (where she obviously didn't take it in). I think in the end that the store was embarrassed that they insisted on ordering my dress a size too big, then charging me $450 for alterations and it still wasn't perfect. Would suggest this company to a friend but that person needs to have a strong personality to deal with the attitude you will receive. I think they are more concerned with selling MORE dresses than guaranteeing a great experience for something that is already bought and paid for.

I found my perfect wedding dress here. I returned here after buying my grad dress 10 from 7th avenue fashions 10 years ago. They are so friendly and very helpful which is very important to me because I wear a plus size, and most sample sizes do not come in plus. I ended up choosing the Maggie Sottero Esme dress in gold detail. It was absolutely perfect and so beautiful.

The seamstress altered my dress wrong, made it way too tight in certain areas, then blamed me for it...she said I must have gained weight (I'm a size 2 and can't gain that much weight in 3 weeks). The owner eventually came and sorted things out. I was very nervous about my dress fitting even 3 days before the wedding...they didn't leave much time to get it right. Owner was awesome.
