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 ordered ealy (DO THIS)
I ordered 1 year before the event (nov.) and my dress came in september and my veil in october
My dress was pretty, alterations were easy
BUT
They ordered the wrong veil. They had a mix up on the labeling of all the veils in the store. They did not think to check to see if my veil was the right one after they found out about this mess up. so months later I'm in the shop and my veil is 6ft. longer than I wanted.
luckily the owner ( I think) used to make veils and was able to alter it. This being said it took a very long time. and came out lopsided
overall, the staff was very nice. but I'm sad that such a big mistake was made

After talking to a friend who bought her dress here, I decided to make an appt. I'm so glad I did!!! I found the perfect dress on my first visit. Our sales person Amy was fabulous and I loved that we could choose dresses off the racks as well as some she had picked out for me based on what I told her. I also loved that it wasn't high pressure and I was allowed to take my time to make sure it was the right dress. The whole process was so easy and I would highly recommend this store. Just make an appt! They do not take walk-ins, which I know bothers some people but I think that's what made them so great- we had Amy's undivided attention the whole two hours and she wasn't being pulled away to work with other brides. They make you feel like you are the only person they are working with (and you are!).

A Princess Bride was everything I needed in a bridal salon. I was able to book an appointment online and when I arrived to look at dresses the lady that helped was entirely dedicated to me rather than helping multiple customers. She asked me what style I was looking for and if I had a price I wanted to stay below. She was good at picking out dresses for me to try based on what I was looking for and also what she thought would look good on me. She was not pushy at all about my price point. In fact, I ended up with a dress $300 below my price point after their special deal where if you buy it on your first visit the first time you try it on, it's $200 off. At the end of our appointment, I purchased a dress that was not the style I had come in saying I wanted, but was much much better for my body type and goal of being able to go up stairs. It looked amazing both in the store and on my wedding day.

They have a huge selection of incredible gowns. The service was also outstanding, i could not ask for a better group of girls to help me out. They are always complimenting you and make you feel beautiful! Thanks!!

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 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.

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.

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.

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!
