I loved shopping at Alan Evans. My sales associate was so helpful. I explained to her the dress I loved at another store and she found a dress similar at Alan Evans that was even more beautiful! She was so kind and patient. They also gave me my dress for 20% off.

I bought my wedding dress from the Moorhead store. I was very happy with the wide selection. The sales associate I was working with had an attitude. I bought my dress off the rack and paid in cash, so I received 20% off. I had alterations done elsewhere. I'd recommend them over David's bridal for wedding gowns.

DO NOT GO TO ALAN EVAN’S BRIDAL FOR ANY PURPOSE. THEY DO NOT CARE ABOUT HOW THEY TREAT THEIR CUSTOMERS AND DO NOT DESERVE TO BE IN THE BUSINESS THEY ARE IN. Save yourselves some heartache Brides. The store in Sioux Falls made mistake after mistake and gave excuse after excuse. I am the Maid of Honor and tried to deal with the situation to take some stress off of the bride. I went all the way to the owner and ended up being told that although everything was late, didn't fit and we had to order more sash which was late and also pay for it, that it wasn't the end of the world because it was 3 weeks before the wedding still, that I was terrible and had been horrible to everyone (apparently by fighting for being treated like a valued customer and not giving up on what you believe is right, that makes you a horrible person) and then she said, "You get what you give. The ribbon is at the store. We didn't get charged enough for it anyway so go there and get it," and she hung up on me.

The bride has gone through three months of stress because of this store. Don't let it happen to you. Give your business and your hard earned money to someone who cares to have it and will treat you that way before AND AFTER the dress is paid for and the contracts are signed. See Twitter, Yelp, the Better Business Bureau and the store reviews for more information and more details. I don't want ANYONE else to go through what we have.

I bought my dress at Alan Evans and had the alterations done by Holly. The staff was eager to help me the day I came in to look and purchase my dress. There was a large variety of dresses; I was able to try a ton of different styles.
I bought a dress off the rack and was able to customize it and make it my own. Holly is an amazing seamstress and did a phenomenal job with my dress. She took it from a size 8 to a size 0 with everyhting matching up perfectly. I am very happy I chose my dress at Alan Evans.

While our first initial trip to find my sisters wedding dress was successful, the staff helpful and knowledgeable, that first visit was where it ended. Our next visit for bridesmaid dresses again started out ok but they quickly grew short tempered, inpatient and rude. We were frustrated & had to leave, after time to regroup we went back and placed our order. My sisters future in-laws went to find flower girl dresses & again they were very rude, they left upset and without any outfits. When my sister went in for her alterations the alterations woman was incredibly rude. She made several negative comments about her dress, when she asked questions she was short and said that it was just how it is. Refused to bussel it how she had asked and when she finally gave in it looked poorly done. If you happen to stick around to see her leave you will see her ball up all the wedding dresses she is altering and shove them into her trunk.
One negative experience I could write off as a bad day but so many is unacceptable. The only food thing about this shop is Rand and his dresses but the experience makes it not worth it. I know I will warn all my friends that are getting married to enjoy this special experience they must avoid Alan Evans

This bridal shop was so adorable! I was amazed at the style of their set up - you could see a huge variety of their dresses and they had a very good selection. The sales lady was very friendly and super helpful! The only sort of downside was the prices of the dresses. But I found the dress I loved there and it was worth the price!

I felt left in the dust. I bought my dress and then felt shoved out the door. No one helped with any of the details. My dress was also falling apart on my wedding day. I had a small amount of beading below the bustline and most of them fell off. I would not reccomend them or go back with anyone else.

Simply amazing. These guys were great. I had no clue what I wanted in a dress and after only 3, I had the perfect one. From the first try on to the final fittings, every time I went in there, they made me like I was the only bride.

I went in looking for the dress of my dreams, and Rand helped me find it! The gal that day was extremely helpful and honest. I told Beth and Rand what I was envisioning for my dress and they got it for me! I absolutley recommend them to anyone- they are creative, professional and flexible on payments. Highly, highly recommend!!!

I had an overall good experience with Alan Evans...UNTIL my dress came in. They were much cheaper than some other companies for the same dress and agreed to match a price of another company. They were fun to be around and try on dresses. But after my dress came in, I did kind of feel like they left me out in the cold. I had a number of alterations to do and ended up taking them elsewhere.

For the shopping experience, I'd definitely recommend them.

We purchased my dress in a single trip. It was the fourth dress I tried on and was one that Rand had picked out for me. You will get best service if you make an appointment ahead of time. You will get even better service if you avoid the busiest times around prom & homecoming. I loved them dearly! Plus, on a big purchase like this, no sales tax is a huge money saver. Not to mention the discount your maids get if they pay thier dress in full within 30 days of you ordering your dress.

I purchased my wedding dress and bridesmaids dresses through Alan Evans in Sioux Falls. The girls there were very friendly and helpful when it came to trying on dresses and giving me their full attention, making sure I had everything I needed. I found the perfect dress for a very affordable price. Unfortunately, when we ordered it, I must have been measured wrong because it was very tight when it came in. Because of the timeframe, instead of being able to get a different size, I had to find a seamstress to let out the seams. She did inform me that the quality of the dress was phenomenal, using original wedding lace and very attentive to detail. Overall, I am happy with my dress, I just wish I had gotten a size up like I was supposed to. The bridesmaids dresses were lovely.

I am very glad I found my wedding dress at Alan-Evans, mostly because it was exactly what I wanted and I didn't have to pay sales tax because it's in Minnesota. However, if you get anyone other than Rand Evans to help you with your dress choosing, good luck. The girls that work there are rude, unhelpful, and unknowledgable. To one of my bridesmaids who wasn't thorougly enjoying the try-on session she said...You must have ADD...

They also messed up my pick up date after steaming was done. Luckily I planned to pick it up a week before my wedding so I had some days to spare. Also, if you are into heavily jeweled/decorated dresses, this place is for you. If not, I think I got about one of the only dresses in there that doesn't have beading or sparkles. Something to consider.

They were very helpful when it came to finding me a dress and my bridesmaid dresses. But I had to order a dress online and I was told it would be in the third week of October. They told me if I would wait till the following week to order it the dress would arrive the week later. Well the third week of October came and I called there Monday and they said it will be in any day. So I called back wed and the lady said should would call the company and find out when it will be in and call me back. Well she never called. So I called there thursday and they told me next week at the very latest. They could not give me a date when it would be in and they were very rude. I would not reccomend ordering anything from the moorhead store. The girls there are not very helpful after they have recieved your money.
