The Princess Bride is the Northwest’s premier full-service couture bridal salon. From our beginnings in the alterations industry, we’ve founded our business on the principle that every bride’s needs are unique, important, and deserve our personal attention. We commit ourselves throughout the entire bridal process, from the first appointment trying on gowns, to fitting with undergarments, alterations, and finishing touches with veils and jewelry. Our relationship with brides doesn’t end once they leave our salon with the gown of their dreams, but continues as we advise brides on gown cleaning and preservation, and help their friends find gowns of their own. With our unparalleled selection of gowns, accessories, and service to match, we’d love to meet you and help you achieve a stunning look on your wedding day that you’ll remember forever. Read less

I love A Princess Bride Couture Bridal Salon! I have not been into their store yet, but I tried on their dresses at the Seattle Wedding Show, and I cannot say enough positive things about their professionalism. While other bridal dress stores there were indifferent and not helpful, at their booth I felt like I still got that bridal experience that you always hope for. I had one person helping me the whole time and she gave me 100% of her attention. They even let me hold the dress for an hour, and when I decided the dress was for me and wanted to purchase it, my original helper came RUNNING up the stairs to her break because she wanted to help me finish purchasing the dress. I appreciated the attention so much and I am IN LOVE with my dress!

I went to Princess Bride after my sister’s sister-in-law came here to get here dress. When we came in, we told them my price range ($1,000) and they only showed me dresses within my range. They had so many styles and designers to choose from. I was particularly excited to come here because they carried the line of the designer I really wanted. I ended up finding a dress from that designer in my price range. They even offered to hold onto my dress (as I bought 2 years before my wedding date). After having gotten my dress there, my sister decided to come back for her wedding dress, and I sent my two best friends there (who were struggling with finding a dress in their price range) and all of them found their perfect dress their first time visiting Princess Bride. I can’t recommend them enough.

I think the responsiveness could have been a lot better - I think they set themselves up for some complaining brides but not being forthright. I waited a long time to get a firm date for my dress showing up and when you're paying that much you hope for something better. The alterations were also very expensive.

Beware beware beware. This place takes your money and spends it's elsewhere and at the last moment will order it in to come just a week or two before your wedding date! It is illegal to do so. Deposits for gowns are to be placed in a trust account until the gown is delivered and the owner Kathy does not do this! We ordered in July 2013 and after threats of law suits and contacting the manufacturer did we get the gown in May 2014! Beware. Do not buy or order from this salon.

The girl who helped me find my dress was great! But the girls up front & the alternation lady werent much help. I always had to call to confirm my own appointment. They never called but once! I went in about 4 times! Even when I confirmed they always had me at a different time or a different day. I read reviews about how some brides didn't get their dress but I did and I was so thankful! Overall I would recommend but at your own risk

BUYER BEWARE!!!!! I went like any other bride looking for the right dress. I had found the dress at this store. I went in and put my 60% deposit down in November and paid for the dress in full by January. I thought I had plenty of time to pay for the dress since that is what the sales person was very open about how flexible they were. I read the fine print and the dress needed to be paid for within the 90 days otherwise they would take it from the credit/debit card that was on file. I didn't realize they kept this information.

When May came I called to see if the dress was on schedule to arrive by the middle of May and they kept saying everything was on track. So I started calling once a week to see the dress had been shipped. I had made arrangements to have my dress altered at another location for the 3rd of June and still the dress had not shown up. I had called and talked to the assistant manager and she hung up on me because she didn't like my attitude since my dress wasn't in. I finally had to do some research on who the store owner was since they would not give me that information. Needless to say once I got this information and wrote to the owner I started getting some results. In the end I got my dress five days before my wedding.

This store takes the money and does not order the dresses until the last minute which certainly gave me unnecessary stress. I was fortunate to have a wedding dress alterations owner on call waiting for when I had the dress in hand. They could have ordered a petite size but didn't so I had 7 inches taken in.

I wish I had read the reviews prior to purchasing my dress there. I read the reviews after I put my non-refundable deposit down. I had a sinking feeling and unfortunately that feeling came true.

Stay away!

I work full time and attend grad school and planned my own wedding! Store hours were great for my busy schedule and I was always happy after my appointments. I rate value as 4.5 because my dress was a great value but I was disappointed in the high cost for alterations and accessories. To start with the positive, my dress was AMAZING! The staff were attentive to my style preferences and helped me find "the one". It was a low pressure sales experience and they were willing to treat me like a princess despite a limited budget. Regarding the accessories: A 10" birdcage veil was more than $75 when David's bridal or a private seller on Etsy charge around $30 and the cost for my hair flower piece was $65. The birdcage veil I ordered from Etsy was $20 and served its purpose. I purchased my hair flower piece from Princess Bridal and it was perfect for my dress and I was willing to pay the extra amount so that I did not have to make it myself and it gave me piece of mind knowing that it was exactly what I wanted. I would recommend looking at other vendors for alterations and accessories if you are on a tight budget but come here for your dress. All this to say I would highly recommend Princess Bridal and in fact my sister, her best friend, my sister-in-law and her best friend have all happily purchased our wedding gowns from Princess Bridal.

I ordered a dress from this place 5 months before my wedding, they absolutely confirmed that the dress would arrive within April or first week of may with enough time to make adjustments. After no news I called during the first weeks of May and at first nobody gave me any information saying that the manager only came on Mondays, then I called the next Monday and they said the dress had just shipped from NY and it would arrive in 7 BD, then I called in 7BD and they told me the same. Finally, the dress arrived 1 week before my wedding and when adjusting it, they made it to small and then it didn't fit. The seamstress had the worst attitude suggesting it had been my fault that she had adjusted the dress too small and now it didn't fit. The dress was BEAUTIFUL and I looked AMAZING but the seamstress turned the whole experience into a NIGHTMARE.

This was the second place I went to try on bridal gowns. The first place I went was David's Bridal and I didn't really get good service there or find what I wanted. I went here on a Thursday in the middle of the day so there wasn't too much going on with other brides. They have beautiful antique style furniture and mirrors inside.

My consultant for the appointment was Mallorie. She was really nice and knowledgeable which made me feel comfortable. I described the kind of gown I was looking for as well as my price range since I was trying to find a gown for under $1,000 and I'm a plus-size so I needed a gown to flatter my figure. I was worried that I wouldn't be able to afford much from a place with designer gowns, but I was so surprised by the quality and all of the dresses there were gorgeous. She made great suggestions as well as let me look around and try on ones I picked.

The dressing rooms are a decent size, unlike David's Bridal. The first dress I tried on did just what she said it would. It made me look thinner and gave me a beautifully defined waist. I tried a few more on after that to be sure, but the first one was clearly the winner. It was normally priced for $1400, but they got it down to $899 and said if I bought it that day I could get it for $699(they have this thing where they give you $200 off if you buy it the same day you try it on)!

I loved the dress so I put down a deposit and paid off the rest just a few weeks later. Oh and the dress fit me almost perfectly off the rack! I only needed basic alterations and they did a great job with those too. This place is so nice and definitely has charm. The consultants and owner were attentive, very helpful, and didn't try to pressure me into buying anything or even getting my alterations there.
Overall I loved the experience here and my dress.

My experience here was good. We got great attention from our associate, Kelli. She was wonderful. We had a really fun time, and I got to try on as many dresses as I wanted. I didn't feel rushed. I ended up ordering my dress from them, and yes, it was not perfectly on time. However, it was not horribly late, and everything worked out. The price was fine, and the service was good. They will push you to get alterations done with them, but all it takes is a simple "no thanks", and they'll let it go.

The initial appointment was wonderful. The sales associate had pulled several dresses ahead of time based on input from my stylist (Mayna Sgaramello of ClosetFly). The dresses were great and reasonably priced - well within the budget I had given ahead of time. The sales associate was attentive and gave us plenty of room and time. She was patient and pleasant. I was able to select a dress on the first visit.

At the initial fitting, service was once again impeccable. The dressing room was prepped with my gown before I arrived. A different associate assisted with getting me into the necessary bra and then into the dress. I had brought the shoes I'd be wearing for the wedding as well as undergarments. The seamstress is quite direct but quite adept.

Unfortunately a second fitting was required - nothing awful but the dress had to have the hem further adjusted and some minor seam adjustments. The second fitting was not quite so well prepped. I had to ask for help in getting into the bra and dress. Unfortunately on my third visit (to pick up the dress), the service was almost non-existent. They were short a sales person - I understand how awkward that can be but so is standing around in your knickers and trying to find someone to stuff you into your dress. On a side note, the bra that I purchased from Princess Bride had areas were it had been stretched out - as if someone's fingers had overstretched the material. The bra is over $60, one would hope to get one in pristine condition - this one wasn't but they didn't have any others in stock. In context, you're only going to wear it once so it doesn't matter that much.

My maid of honor also selected her dress from Princess Bride and it was good service and alterations.

In summary, they have a great selection with reasonable prices. They met their commitments and the staff is pleasant. They're working at improving their customer service and it shows. I would purchase dresses from them in the future for special events.

I had a great experience with A Princess Bride! As a plus-sized bride I was nervous about trying on sample dresses, but they had an excellent selection of "diva" samples. I also appreciated that they allowed me to look around the store and select my own gowns to try on... a few other places I went just asked me what I wanted and then pulled gowns for me. When you don't have a specific idea of what you're looking for, that doesn't help very much!

Gail, my consultant, was an absolute doll to work with, and I felt like she was really excited for me and my marriage and that she really cared about finding a dress that was right for me. Eventually we selected a Sophia Tolli gown, Alexanda. We ordered the dress in mid August 2011 and it arrived in the end of February 2012. The dress came in about 3 weeks earlier than expected!

I'm still waiting to go back for my alterations fitting, and will review alterations once they've been done.

They had a good selection of dresses. I spent a fair amount of time trying on different ones and I never felt rushed...which i am very thankful for. After trying on many, finally the lady (forgot her name) brought one more out and it was "the one".
My experience with the altering was a little rocky. I had to go back an additional time after the first alteration...due to their mistake. Then an extra clip in the back they added to make it fit more perfect snapped half way through the night when i coughed. But it still was the perfect dress.

They had a good selection of dresses. I spent a fair amount of time trying on different ones and I never felt rushed...which i am very thankful for. After trying on many, finally the lady (forgot her name) brought one more out and it was "the one".

This is an awesome boutique! A great selection of dresses and great quality. I was impressed that they didn't try to push their higher-end designer dresses, but rather kept my choices within my price range. Marissa was our consultant and she was fantastic! Can't say enough good things about her. She's very professional but also very fun to work with. Highly recommend this boutique!

I really loved working with A Princess Bride Couture in Bothell. Mallorie was my bridal consultant and she was great! I, like most brides, had a particular style of dress in mind. She pulled out everything that matched my vision and we were able to find something for me, after weeks of searching lots of salons!

Mallorie was great. She sent me pictures of my top 2 dresses via email (they were no longer available online) and she was available for communication over email as well! She also has such a great personality, she's so friendly and personable that I think it really helped relax me when I was a little nervous about trying on dresses for friends and family. She was also super helpful and it was just great to work with her :D

Besides the service, my dress was BEAUTIFUL! I got so many compliments on it. The dress was an off the rack dress, my size, the last one, and it was perfect sizing, and on sale and no issues with it. So I got fairly lucky :) The shop is a little pricier - thousands and up, is what I saw, but it's definitely worth checking out even if you have a lower price range for your dress. Just let the bridal consultant know, and she can pull some dresses within your range or even some off the rack dresses.

As much as I loved my dress and working with Mallorie, I do have to agree I wasn't 100% impressed with alterations. I got it done there. It was around $270 for shortening the dress and the straps. I came back in the second time and the dress was still much to long. She did shorten it again (don't worry they don't charge again) and it seemed fine during my final fitting so I brought it home. But during the wedding I tore the bottom of the dress, the petticoat, and tripped frequently. It really should've been shorter still.

Loved, loved, loved working with Kellie and the rest of the Princess Bride crew! They truly do make you feel like a princess.

I first found them at Seattle Wedding Expo and even though the event was closing in about 10 minutes they still let me try on dresses. I found "the one" there but went back to the store a couple weeks later to make sure. It was.

They have a great selection of dresses in all prices so I was actually a little bummed I found my dress so quickly! They were accommodating and friendly to every friend I brought in there. (I've actually heard of some salons getting upset if you bring more than 2 people with you. I had 4.)

They were constantly in contact with me, letting me every stage we were in with the dress ordering process. I only needed one fitting because the alterations were done perfectly. The dress really was a stand out. I never felt so wonderful in all my life.

I highly recommend A Princess Bride. And Kellie is really great to work with. She has wonderful taste and "gets" you. She knew my dress was "my dress" even before my friends did. Too bad you only get to shop for wedding dresses (hopefully) once in a lifetime.

I know there are a lot of mixed reviews about Princess Bride. When I first walked into the shop, I was greeted with tacky prom dresses in outrageous colors. Then my consultant showed up in fishnet stockings and black leather booty shorts. I thought "this is so not where I'll find my wedding dress!" But, she led me to the bridal section and it was filled with so many beautiful dresses! She gave us a tour of what type of dresses were where and then let us pick as many dresses as we wanted to try on. We also got to take photos in the dresses, which was fab as I was able to text it to my mom in Hawaii to get her input. The downside to the experience is that they are very difficult to get a hold of. Once my dress came, they had me make an appointment for a "finishing touch" appointment where I was supposed to look at accessories. When I got there, they had forgotten about me and had a receptionist try to help me. I had to try to zip it up myself and no one really helped me. Then when I tried to leave with the dress (after paying the balance) they wouldn't let me. They said I had to leave it for my alterations appointments that would happen many months later. But, the seamstress wasn't available to talk with me to even see what alterations would entail. So, a few weeks later, I stopped by to pick up my dress, explaining that I needed it to make my veil. They had me make an alterations appointment (that I canceled later).

My experience at A Princess Bride Couture was amazing. It was the first shop I went to, and I did shop around by trying other stores just to make sure I was going to the right place, and I was! Every other store I visited was rude and wouldn't even give me the time of day, especially when I told them my budget. But Princess Bride Couture was welcoming, warm and so super friendly! Ashley, my consultant, who was fairly new to the shop, made my experience the best ever!!!! I would take anyone there that is looking for a dress, as it simply was the best experience I have ever had shopping for any sort of attire! Ashley helped me with my accessories, but never pressured me to buy any of them from her. Let me feel comfortable to look elsewhere to find the best deal. I ended up buying my vail and the flower for my hair at Princess Bride, but all other accessories (shoes, jewelry, undergarments) I bought elsewhere. It all came together perfectly and that was because of the great service I received and the beautiful gown I got to wear on the most special day of my life! Thank you Ashley and Princess Bride Couture!!!!

Do yourself a favor and stay away! First, if you ask the owner about bad reviews, she says they are made by other shop owners.... I am not another owner, just a disgruntled bride that has had to wait 5+ months to write a review until I had calmed down enough. Bullet point highlights:
-The alterations were so poorly done, the strap of my dress broke
-I found a pin that had been left in my dress... When I stabbed myself with it leaving a blood stain right in front
-My mother ordered a dress, which three months longer than it was supposed to, and the jacket was incorrect (the owner said my mother was lying). They made a new one, which was best described by when my now husband saw it said "wow, that looks like a cheap Halloween costume"
-Owner told me my dress was silk, turns out it wasnt
-Horrible scheduling, I had to take off work for all of me alterations apps because they don't schedule around someone who works

There is more, but I think you get the picture!

I purchased my dress off the rack at the Seattle Wedding Show. I got a great bargain on a gorgeous dress and a free veil, though the flip side of buying a dress off the rack was the cost of alterations. The sales lady was very helpful at the wedding show, but a follow up question that I emailed to the store did not get a response. I did not use the shop for alterations, as I already knew a tailor.

Okay fellow brides. I know you see the reviews and think "it's okay... those other women are just hard to please" and besides they are the only bridal salon that carries the dress of your dreams. Stop!!! Seriously...I mean it! Princess bride will turn that dress of your dreams into your biggest nightmare.

Day one...shopping: I went with my mother, sister and father dress shopping. I knew I wanted a Pronovias. The process of trying on the dresses was great and emotional. That emotion was exploited to the nth degree. I FELL IN LOVE with my dress...and was talked into getting a slip (which I gave to my cousin since I hated it), an ill fitting bustier (a size A when I am a C and gives my slim build actual back fat...more on that later), an UGLY flower for my hair, a feather for my hair, a birdcage veil, shoes and a sash (which I do love). The total I spent is DISGUSTING. I ended up purchasing twice of what I meant to spend just on accessories.

First fitting: As I am standing getting my dress altered the ower pulls one of the sales girls to the corner and tells her "Never wear that again. You look totally unprofessional." I was thinking the one being unprofessional is that owner. I fell in love with a broken necklace...she promised to fix it...telling me she sets stones. SHE HOT GLUED A CHEAP RHINESTONE TO MY WEDDING NECKLACE!

Final fitting: I am trying my dress on two weeks before the wedding and noticed a man in the shop. He started talking to me telling my dress is beautiful. I just want to be left alone. The owner of the shop introduces him as the owner of the tux shop next door and says that he could press my dress. He asks for me to take out the bustle to "see if he should press it." I informed him I would notify him should I need it and left him standing there as I meandered around the shop. It was so rude...he charges $100 on TOP of the $500 I spent getting it altered to get it pressed. I left with a very bad taste in my mouth.

As for my Pronovias....I still love her =).

All I can say good about this company is that I loved my dress in the end and a lot of that may have been due to the great alterations at Fashion Fittings in Fircrest, WA. Every promise that Princess Bride Salon made was a lie and I had to fight to get my dress but the delivery was months after the promise date. I think that since they already had had my money they did not want to provide service any longer.

I would not recommend this place to anyone. I repeat i would not recommend this place to anyone. I am getting married soon and I flew out to Seattle to help with a friends wedding preparations and to find idea for my own. We went into the Princess Bride and though they had some very nice dresses, the prices were a little outrageous for similar dresses i have seen in other stores. The customer service was also TERRIBLE even with the people they were helping. I was chatting with another bride that was there and when she told me how much they had quoted her for the minor alterations that's she needed, I was in complete shock.

I would not recommend this place to anyone. I repeat i would not recommend this place to anyone. I am getting married soon and I flew out to Seattle to help with a friends wedding preparations and to find idea for my own. We went into the Princess Bride and though they had some very nice dresses, the prices were a little outrageous for similar dresses i have seen in other stores. The customer service was also TERRIBLE even with the people they were helping. I was chatting with another bride that was there and when she told me how much they had quoted her for the minor alterations that's she needed, I was in complete shock. I don't see how anyone could have a good experience there. I would warn all brides to stay away from this place if you want to have a good wedding gown experience. Read less

As far as my dress is concerned they were great. However, when I called two months after making my veil, slip, and undergarment purchase to see when they might be in. I found out they had never placed the order. If I hadn't contacted them they would never have placed it.

I bought my gown from them at a wedding show. It was marked down $500 off plus I received an additional $200 off of that price, so it was hard to pass up! I was also to receive a cruise voucher and a free veil. We were told that they didn't have the vouchers with them and they would be mailed within 2 weeks. They also didn't have the veils and we could go to the shop to pick one up. After a month, I emailed to find out where my voucher was and they had skipped over my name when they mailed them out. I did eventually receive it so no harm no foul there. But they also told me in the email that the veil had to be picked up at the show...when we were told to go to the shop. My last email to them has gone unanswered... Update: I went to the shop to see about the veil. They did give me one, the saleslady from the show must have been confused, I don't know. The voucher turned out to be from a shady vacation place, so we won't be using it.

Molly is the person who helped me. When we originally came in, we were looking for shoes. Then we started looking at veils. She asked me a lot of questions, concerning what I like, && what I do not like. Finally, we were able to narrow it down. She then informed us that they do custom veil work. She worked very hard with us to get us a good price on a custom veil, && to make sure it was going to be exactly what we wanted.

While I absolutely LOVED my dress, I was not a huge fan of the service. The first woman who worked with us was wonderful, she helped me pick out the dress, etc.... She was very focused on what I was looking for. When we came back to pick out the shoes, the woman who helped us kept telling me that she knew what she was doing and made me feel like she didn't even care that it was MY wedding, not hers. I ended up taking the dress to have it fitted elsewhere.

If you've been to more than a few bridal shops, you'll quickly appreciate how organized and CLEAN this bridal shop is. Their dresses are in amazing condition. Gayle was my wedding dress Fairy God Mother. Out of almost 30 dresses I pulled to try on, she was able to determine which one was best for my personality and body type. The first dress I tried on was the one I bought and wore on my wedding day. The follow up on details was great, and everyone there seems to have a great eye from shoes to veil.
Their alterations guru, Christie is awesome. She came in on her day off to make sure my dress was done in time and with no stress to me. Not to mention it fit amazingly; I have never had a strapless dress stay put. I never had to pull at it or adjust it and was locked in all night long. (and anyone with a DD or larger bust knows how impossible this can be).

I had a pretty good experience at this store. I do want to say though as soon as I purchased my gown and veil I felt like I did not matter any more. They made the sale and that was what was important. When my gown came in you have to make an appointment to go try it on...which I did. When I arrived they did not know where my gown was in the store. You would think they might prepare before you arrive for your appiontment. I was waiting for them to find my gown for about 10 mins. They offered to allow me to try on some other gowns if I wanted while I waited...why would I want to do that? I want MY gown! The one I already picked out and purchased!! I was kind of confused and stressed out when they said this. They did in fact find my gown and I was able to try it on without further incident. I still need to get alterations done, so I do not yet have experience with this.

I loved my dress and I received so many compiments. It was unlike any dress that I have seen. It was absolutely the best deal on a wedding dress I had heard of because I bought it at the seattle wedding show and they thru in a free veil and a cruise ticket...so of course I scored there. What I thought was so nice was that I made a fitting appointment with them after the bridal show and the woman who helped me was so knowledgeable about how the dress was to fit and what undergarments I needed. I didn't feel pressured to buy things I didn't need or to make unnecessary alterations. I was very impressed with all of the selection at princess bride and the great professional service.

Contrary to other brides' experience with this salon, I had a very LOVELY experience here. I think what made it an awesome experience was the consultant/salesgirl who helped me. I've heard horror stories on how rude and pushy Princess Bride can be, but thankfully that did NOT happen to me. Helen was awesome and super helpful. I didn't realize that a wedding gown takes about 6-8 months to order (without rush order) and happened to be shopping for my dress just right around the 5 month mark. Knowing that I don't really have time to shop around, Helen helped me score a sample dress during the La Sposa trunk show. I ended up getting a discount for the trunk show AND for buying a sample dress. That said, I ended up doing my alterations elsewhere as I didn't want to spend a lot for it and also, I didn't want to risk ruining my experience with them. It seems that when it comes to alterations, most brides have had a horrible experience with them. Overall, I would recommend The Princess Bride with caution. The place undoubtly has quite a selection of gorgeous gowns (especially if you're a fan of the Pronovias brand (Pronovias, La Sposa, Manuel Motta, etc)). As far as customer service goes, it seems like a hit and miss sometimes depending on who you get as a consultant/salesgirl.

I would not recomend Princess Bride to anyone. I felt very pressured from the moment I walked into this place. I ended up getting caught up in the moment and pressured into ordering my dress because I was told if I waited it would not arrive on time. In the end my dress took longer then they said it would and the customer service was horrible. I felt that unless you were spending several thousand dollars on a dress they did not have time for you after you placed your order. I was never called when they said that they would and when I went to pick up my dress they wanted me to take it without ever trying it on because they had only scheduled me an appointment to pick up my dress, not to try it on. In the end they said that I could try it on, but that they did not have tiem to help me so I would have to have the person I brought with help me. Overall a bad experiance.

These guys are just lovely! I enjoyed working with them from the initial purchase of my dress through alterations. One of their alterations specialists worked with me to find matching lace for my dress, so that I could create the cap sleeves that I so wanted (but at the price I could afford). She directed me to the right spot and I was able to purchase the EXACT same lace for $30. I couldn't have been happier. I felt like a total "princess" through the whole process. Well done.

I'm really not someone who complains a lot but the service at this place was horrific. My fiancee and I are getting married in less than a week. A couple weeks ago, when she went to pick up her dress, she also bought a certain undergarment to go with it. Unfortunately, sometime after she left the store, my fiancee realized that they had given her the wrong size. So, she went back in to let them know. They informed her that they didn't have any of her size in store but she could pay to have one shipped to them.

Yup, you read that right. They wanted her to pay to fix their mistake. Well, she convinced them that wasn't quite fair and they agreed finally to have it shipped to them and they'd get it within "a couple of days". One week later, after not hearing from them, she called and asked another person about it. They said they hadn't received it but it would be there "in a couple of days". We have five days until the wedding and they don't have it, nor can they guarantee they will get it.

My fiancee insisted that they either needed to let her know they wouldn't get it in time, or assure her they would so she would know whether or not to attempt finding a new one. They couldn't tell her anything and so she asked to speak to a manager. The man on the phone literally said "I am the closest you'll get to a manager".

She finally asked if she could just get a refund of this $70 item and they said no, despite the fact that it was their fault. Needless to say, the customer service at this shop is atrocious and insulting.

A Princess Bride was at the Seattle wedding show and it was a happy accident that I found the one-even though it's been super early! I asked Lisa to put the dress on hold so I could try other dresses, since the one was the absolute first I have ever tried on. She was SO sweet about keeping the dress on hold, and when I came back to try it on once more she made every effort to give me a perfect description of the dress, the designer, the price, calmed my concerns about it being a few sizes too big for me as far as what alterations can do, and then gave me her email to contact her about any questions. That's my only complaint, I never heard back from Lisa when I emailed her regarding a matching veil. I still haven't heard back, so I do plan on calling the store itself to find out about it. Overall though, great service at the Expo!
