My daughter and I spent the day shopping (with no success) for wedding dresses in Dallas. Luckily, a friend suggested AG Bridal. We were amazed at their selection and every dress in the shop was in our pricepoint....in other stores we only had a few racks to choose from. Geri, the owner, worked with my daughter until she found "the one". He did not rush or pressure us....he truly wanted by my daughter to find the dress she loved. In addition, from talking to other MOB's, I believe that AG Bridal's pricing for accessories and altering is much cheaper than other bridal stores. This is very important because the total cost of the wedding dress quickly adds up to more then you may budget.

Found the perfect dress here. It was a zipper back which I did not want. They altered it to a corset back and it was perfect. You would never know the dress didn't come that way! Wonderful people to work with with gorgeous dresses to choose from!

Alexia Gavela came highly recommended to me by a friend and I would pass along the same feedback to any bride looking for bridal alterations. The owner is super nice and works hard to get that perfect fit for you! Excellent, friendly staff too. Even in the heat of wedding & prom season, they made me feel special and not just a number.

Alexia Gavela came highly recommended to me by a friend who works in the wedding industry. It was actually the second bridal salon I went to. I first went to another well-known salon in Austin, and I did not have a great experience there...it was very so-so. The salesperson I was working with did not make me feel great. I found a dress that I kind of liked, but I was anxious to get to Alexia Gavela to see what all they had. I had the great pleasure of working with Geri, who made me feel so beautiful and at ease. I showed him pictures of styles that I liked, and he pulled a few dresses, and my maids of honor that were there with me picked some dresses as well. I will never forget seeing "my" dress on me for the first time - it felt like it was made just for me. My mom, future MIL, maids of honor, and aunt were all there with me, and we all got teary-eyed. Picking out a bridal gown can be an emotional experience, and Geri and his team were so sweet and accommodating.

Geri and his team did my alterations as well - they were perfect. Geri was a perfectionist (in a good way!) about getting the length of the dress just right to go with my shoes.

I ended up ordering a custom veil through Geri as well, with lace to match the trim of my dress. It was absolutely perfect. I wish I could get married again so I could work with Geri again to find another dress!

Although I did not purchase my dress from Alexia Gavela, I was recommended to go there for alterations from a friend and they did not disappoint! I received the highest level of service each time I came for alterations and they were a very reasonable price. Highly recommend!

I LOVE this salon! I went to at least 10 bridal salons in the Houston/ Austin area and this is where I found my dress! Jery and his team are the best in the business. They are honest, not pushy at all. My dress required some alterations and they turned out better than I expected, including the price! AG has the best selection of gowns to choose from. Please make Alexia Gavela your first stop, I guarantee you will find your dress here. THANK YOU!!! - Lisa

Geri please forgive me, this review is way overdue. I should have written it months ago but time got away from me. I am not usually a person that enjoys shopping all day, so to say the least going shopping for a wedding dress was not something I was looking forward to. After going through almost all the shops in Austin, the last shop I tried as Alexia Gavela Bridal, owned by Geri. He spent the whole afternoon with me the first day and made my dress come off flawlessly. I was getting discouraged before Geri because I wanted to add a little color my wedding dress and none of the other wedding shops was willing to think outside the box and help me. I wanted a white wedding dress with tangerine color underneath (essentially an tangerine/orange ombre blending into the base of the wedding dress). This small amount of color would only been seen under the dress when I walked, and was further accented by colored lacing on the corset. We picked out a dress and designed it exactly the way I wanted, with all the color and class of a princess wedding dress. Geri got excited, and was the only designer who was willing, motivated, excited, and encouraging to help add some color to my wedding. Most designers were unable to see how a white dress could be enhanced with a little color and couldn't see my vision. I am forever grateful for him making my special day possible.

I purchased my bridal gown and sash from here. The staff is so wonderful! Geri was my main contact but when he wasn't available, the other girls stepped in and took great care of me. The boutique is located in a small old house, so be sure to schedule an appt for a fitting room. And ask for Geri!

It was such a pleasure working with Geri at Alexia Gavela to pick our my wedding gown. I bought in a picture of the dress Sophia Loren wore in House Boat to see if they could make it using the fabric and lace of one of the dresses in their shop. He was very enthusiastic about the project and his seamstress even watched the movie to get the details of the dress. Just weeks before my wedding, the dress arrived, on the timeline promised. While they replicated my requested design, I realized two things as I tried the dress on: 1) I'm 54 and not Sophia Loren and, 2) don't mess with an Edith Head design (the Best Costume Academy Award winner many times over who designed Sophia's dress in Houseboat). I looked like a sister wife in the dress and a reject from Little House on the Prairie. I knew I had to pay for the dress and had resigned myself to quickly making my own as Plan B. Seeing my reaction, Geri shared with me that "something had told him to hold back the other dress" with the fabric I loved for me. He retrieved it from the back of the shop, I tried it on, he made some alterations and allowed me to switch out gowns at no extra charge. That is unheard of in the wedding business and he may not want that to get out there, but his customer service was so impressive. I shared with my wedding planner, Loxodonty Events, and they said wonderful things about Geri and the bridal shop, too. And, they have really lovely wedding dresses there of higher quality fabrics than you find in the chain shops. Highly recommend!

Everyone at Alexia Gavela was wonderful. They will help you find the perfect dress. I found a dress that I loved but something wasn't quite right. Geri called the designer to see if the bodice could be changed, they siad yes and I got my dream dress! They have a great selection no matter what your style. I highly recommended them!
