I found my 8 bridesmaid dresses here and it was a blast. They have so many to choose from, my bridesmaids were in dress heaven. We even had 3 kids in tow with us and they were so kind to us even though it was a bit hectic. They made the process pretty smooth. I appreciate how easy it was and how helpful the sales girls were. I am very anxious for their arrival.

I had the most wonderful experience at Allegria. What an amazing staff!!! First, Barbara was just wonderful and helped me find the perfect gown and accessories. Not only did she make me feel comfortable, but I felt like I was shopping with a friend. I love the wedding dress she helped me find and she really made me feel special! I also bought my 4 bridesmaid dresses there as well. Both times the staff at Allegria made it so easy to find what I needed and were so helpful. Down in alterations Rene was unbelievable as well! She really listened to me and helped me with deciding on bustles, ribbons, etc and worked absolute magic on alterations. I would highly recommend visiting this store and purchasing your gown here. The entire staff is so knowledgeable and they make the experience a wonderful one.

I loved everything about Allegria Bridal! I wanted to try on fabulous Jenny Packham gowns knowing FULL well that Jenny Packham gowns would not be fabulous on me. But I loved them - even though I knew I would end up in a different designer, I just did not want to regret not even trying them. I went to two other boutiques and my JP request was met with varying shades of annoyed. At Allegria Bridal, the saleswoman did not even bat an eyelash. Rather she brought me a steady stream of Jenny Packhams until I asked her to show me some other designers. She pulled a Lazaro gown and it was so incredibly stunning and perfect and I knew I'd found my gown. I was thankful that she let me "do my thing" first and then used her own knowledge and instinct to find something along the same lines that worked perfectly on me. It was a great experience and just SO much more pleasant than the other boutiques I visited.

I also got my alterations done downstairs. Renee did an absolutely flawless job - my dress was perfect! I was completely clueless about the process when I arrived for my first fitting, but she walked me through each step and explained my options clearly. In addition to tailoring the dress to fit me perfectly, she was able to make some alterations to make the wedding day more comfortable and easier (for example, sewing my bra right into the dress, and adding an extra row of hooks inside so I could adjust the dress that day).

Thrilled to have found Allegria and would absolutely recommend them to any bride looking for her perfect dress.

I went to Allegria Bridal specifically looking for Lazaro dresses. My consultant was great! it was the first shop we went to and I ended up purchasing my dress that day! I had ordered the Lazaro LZ 3161 and it was perfect! the alterations department was great as well. I also purchased my veil, headpiece, and belt through Allegria. All came in on time and looked perfect the day of my wedding!

My experience with Allegria Bridal was absolutely great -- I went during an Augusta Jones trunk show and the woman who helped me was fabulous. I tried on about 15 dresses and found my dress! The salon was set up great and was very clean; I felt really comfortable in both the fitting rooms and outside in the salon. My dress even arrived earlier than expected, which was an exciting surprise! Overall, a great experience.

When my husband and I got engaged last December the first and only appointment I made to try on wedding dresses was at Allegria - I had 2 other friends get their dresses there and they both looked GORGEOUS on their wedding day! My bridal consultant was Julie, she was super friendly, listened to my wishes and brought me exactly what I asked for. I knew I wanted to wear lace the day of my wedding but I thought I was going to end up in a mermaid style gown. While the fitted dresses I tried on were beautiful, they didn't really make me feel like a BRIDE. Julie suggested a ball-gown style Judd Waddell that was both lace and tulle. The moment I tried it on, I knew it was my dress - it was the dress that you dream of as a little girl!
Also, I cannot say enough AMAZING things about Fumi in the alterations department. She is by the far the most adorable person on the planet - she has so much energy and is like the fairy godmother of alterations. On my second fitting I had a small melt-down when the vail I purchased was inside out; when I explained it to Fumi she just helped me fix it right up like no big deal. She definitely has dealt with a lot of frazzled brides and knows just what to do to calm your nerves. Overall, my entire experience at Allegria was fantastic and I will continue to send friends there for their special day!!

Great customer service from start to finish. The day of my first appointment coincided with a Lazaro trunk show, enabling me to try on a variety of styles, and subsequently finding the perfect dress!

The sales associate I worked with was very patient while working with me throughout, and was not pushy at all. The dress was actually ready over a month earlier than its expected arrival date; the dress was thoroughly inspected by their staff and was in perfect condition. They also couriered my dress over to the seamstress ASAP for alterations.

They may have a limited selection of dresses, but what they have available is very high quality from high-end designers. Would highly recommend any bride to shop here if looking for higher-end dresses.

I purchased my wedding gown from Allegria Bridal last summer. The staff was incredibly helpful and strictly showed me gowns within my price range. They were attentive, helpful, and positive - I could not have asked for a more relaxed bridal gown shopping experience! I actually received my gown earlier than expected. The boutique rushed-ordered many of the gowns due to Hurricane Sandy and wanted to ensure that they would be ready in-time for proper fittings. I was impressed with their proactive approach and appreciated the concern that they had for their brides.

I purchased a sample from Allegria. Barbara was my consultant. When I walked in I was disappointed there were not more samples to pick from, but you really only need that one dress in the end. She was very helpful and professional, their prices are reasonable, and the samples were overall in very good condition. I didn't want to tease myself with looking at the rest of their inventory since I had neither the time nor money, however, from what I saw, it looked good. I would definitely recommend.

I live a couple blocks away from Allegria Bridal so when I became engaged and started thinking about what type of dress Id want to wear, I just popped in without an appointment, and they took me without question. I gave them my budget, they pulled a number of dresses with my style in mind, and let me go through the racks as well. I tried on an Augusta Jones strapless dress and fell immediately in love! Of course I was slightly anxious about wanting to buy the very first dress I had tried on so I left, went to two other bridal shops, and within two days I made an appointment to go back with my mom, and as soon as my mom saw the Augusta Jones dress on me, she teared up and said "thats the one!" we ordered it that day, and it came in a couple weeks prior to the date they initially estimated. I tried it on, it fit almost perfectly - minus the long length of course. Every sales girl that works at Allegria is beyond sweet, and extremely curtious and helpful! Ive been telling everyone I know to go there for their wedding dress, or bridesmaid dresses - which our three bridesmaids dresses were also purchased there and were absolutely stunning in their Amsale dresses!

I bought my dress here and had it altered in their alterations department. I went to a trunk show which was a treat because I got a discount on the dress and met the designer who did a sketch of me in the dress which I got to take home! Barbara was very friendly and attentive in listening to what I was looking for and hearing about THE dress that I was hoping to try on and also helped me find some similar looks. She was as excited as my mom, sister and I when THE dress turned out to be THE dress! After my appointment, she was kind enough to forward the pictures that they took of me in the dress onto me via an email with "confidential!" in the subject line! When the time came to schedule my fitting, I contacted them as I wasn't sure if they would be getting in touch with me or vice versa, so I'm not sure if they would have reached out if I hadn't, but they replied promptly letting me know that I did indeed need to schedule my fitting soon. Fumi and her staff in the alterations department were phenomenal and her attention to detail was impeccable. When I had my first fitting we noticed something unusual with the neckline of the dress and after the fact, I emailed her and asked about it. She looked into it and found that though the dress was cut correctly, it had been sewn in a way that made it fall incorrectly and she scheduled a time for me to come back in before the other alterations had been made so I could rest easy knowing the neckline had been fixed. She did this at no additional charge and explained the situation thoroughly and expressed such an interest in making sure that I felt confident and beautiful on my wedding day. I would recommend Allegria to brides from the area! The whole experience was great.

I wanted a top quality unbelievable gown and was quite disappointed with the selection I found on Newbury Street. Going to Allegria was incredible! I bought all six bridesmaids dresses here too! I worked with Barbara who was VERY patient, which must be a challenge when you deal with brides and mothers of the brides all day. All in all a wonderful experience! I got a stunning dress from Lazaro!

Allegria Bridal was wonderful! The showroom is beautiful, the staff is friendly, and there is a great selection of designer dresses.

I found the dress of my dreams by Judd Waddell, and accessories by Haute Bride.

I went in July of 2011, and they were having a store sale, so it made the price a little bit more bearable.
Allegria also has sample sales, and trunk shows.

Thank you Allegria Bridal for helping me find my dream dress!

They send you to Bridal Alterations by Hranush. She is EXCELLENT. Highly recommended.

Wonderful Wonderful Wonderful shop!!! I cannot sing their praises enough! I had a horrible expirience elsewhere and am so glad I ended up at Allegria. I found a gorgeous dress and received very honest and helpful advice along the way. I was a very stressed and detail oriented bride and the staff was so patient with me as I choose my dress and eventually my veil and accessories as well. I did a custom veil and it was STUNNING!!! Thank you ladies for all your help! My now Husband is not the most emotionally expressive man and the first thing he said as he took my hand from my fathers on the way up the altar was OH MY GOD YOU LOOK ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!! I will remember that moment forever!!

The entire team at Allegria Bridal were so helpful and great to work with while choosing my wedding dress. They recently renovated their salon and it is beautiful inside and very accomodating for trying on with a few people joining to help! I was assigned a bridal consultant for my appt and she did an amazing job listening to what I wanted and ultimately selected the dress I wore on my wedding day!! After purchasing the dress, the communication about my dresses arrival and setting up my fittings was really easy. The seamstress there is unbelievable, her work is flawless and she made my dress even more beautiful than I thought it could be. I was so happy with the final outcome and will always be able to look at my wedding pictures fondly admiring the dress from Allegria Bridal!!

After not loving my first dress when it arrived (which was at a different salon), I became extremely stressed over trying to find my dream dress! Thankfully, Allegria was willing to sell me THE dress off the rack, and it put all my worries at ease. The staff is super nice, especially Barbara who helped me with my dress. I never felt pressured and I loved the set-up of their salon.

From the second I bought the dress to the day I took it home I had such a GREAT experience. I absolutely LOVED (still love) my dress.
Barbara was the name of the woman in the shop who helped me and suggested different accessories when I first went in. I went with all of her recommendations and I am so glad I did! Alterations was amazing YUMI was so cute and so happy all the time. She created this crystal detail on the back of my dress which just added a touch of sparkle to the back....it came out perfectly.
LOVE this little boutique and recommend any bride go and check out what they have to offer!

Barbara and Tracey were a delight to work with - and, given our relatively unique situation, they made us feel utterly welcome and comfortable. Both pay close attention to a bride's tastes, her shape, and her general style -- as well as the details of the ceremony -- and as a result, one ends up with a real consulting experience instead of just being herded through a dress warehouse towards a sale, which given the cost of gowns, is much appreciated. Allegria has a great sample selection, (which I almost selected from), and a well-selected array of designers and gown styles. I had my eye on a Spanish designer that they did not carry, and the staff went so far as to coordinate with the sales rep to have several samples shipped in for me to try one - at no cost. Fumi, too did beautiful work on both our gowns, and was a scream to work with! All around, a fantastic experience -- I almost wish I could get married again (to the same person of course) just to go try on more gowns there!

I loved the owners, two sisters, at Allegria. In the end I worked with both Barbara and Tracy and they are both incredibly helpful and knowledgeable, but still down to earth. They had better prices on the same dresses that I looked at in a salon in DC, and on top of that, I was able to get a 10% discount on my dress because of a discount they had running for that designer for all of May. They also have a large collection of bridesmaid dresses which you get a discount on if you buy your dress there. And I loved, loved, loved Fumi, the tailor. She was not only incredibly skilled, she's so friendly! Definitely check them out!

I loved this shop! I worked with the two owners (they are sisters) and they were so helpful! They were respectful of our budget and if a dress was pulled that was no within it, they made sure I knew and was ok trying it on. One of them pulled a dress that I thought was ugly on the hanger but they told me to trust them and try it on – I fell in love instantly! My dress came in a few weeks early and they gave me a great recommendation for an alteration shop since I couldn't do normal buisness hours.

I chose the designer Anne Barge. The staff was very nice to notify me when her trunk show was to take place. (to those who don't know...at the trunk show designers offer good discounts on their new designs). When my dress came in I was promptly given a call, my dress came in 3 weeks early. THe dress came out fantastic but the edge of the veil was unfinished. The dress shop sent back the veil and had it back quickly. The staff was always so easy to talk to and work with. I think I tried on 10 dresses....never once was there a sigh or a sign I was being a pain. They have a great professional manner. I only wish they had a seamstress.

I went to four other bridal shops before visiting Allegria Bridal in Belmont and I was getting worried that I wouldn't find my wedding dress. I was looking for a different type of neckline (NOT strapless) and couldn't seem to find that "special" dress. I made an appointment early on Friday (my mom and I had the day off) and the shop was busy, but I did not feel rushed or pressured to make a decision. Barbara (I believe this was her name) was my consultant and I felt she was genuine, honest and supportive. She gave me her opinion when I asked for it and showed me different options that reflecting my list of wants. The shop is on the smaller size but I liked the non-warehouse feel of the store. I felt they had a variety of sizes and prices that fit my budget. When I went, it was a Judd Waddell trunk show, and I selected one of his dresses. He was there that day and drew a sketch of me in the dress, which is something I'll always treasure. Since it was a trunk show, I also got a slight discount on the dress and complimentary hair flower pins, which I did use and they looked so pretty instead of a traditional veil. Allegria was great about emailing with me and responding to my calls, but it did depend on which consultant I spoke to. Some women did not seem as knowledgable or as pleasant as Barb and Kate, who I spoke to the most. I also got my bridesmaid dresses here and while there wasn't a huge selection, the prices were reasonable and my bridesmaids got 15% off because I bought my wedding dress here. Overall, I would definitely recommend Allegria Bridal to a bride looking for a intimate, personal wedding dress shopping experience.

I did my alterations somewhere else because Allegria's in-house tailor was on vacation. I had a very good experience with Alterations by Hranoosh in Watertown, as well.

I had a great experience with Allegria. In fact, I tried on dresses at a few places beforehand, and one of the factors in my decision to buy a dress at Allegria was that I preferred to work with the women there than at some of the other stores. I felt truly comfortable there, and that they would make sure I was completely happy. They were very responsive to any time I wanted to come in to try on the dress, veils, accessories, etc., even if they knew I wasn't buying something at that time.

The only downside, and it wasn't really them, but the tailor they recommended, Rosa. While she did a great job and I can't complain at all about the quality of her work, she overcharged us by being noncommittal at the start and then continuing to add on fees as the time went on, for things as silly as an extra $40 for 1 yard of sash cloth that clearly didn't cost that much, when we had already paid her $600 (more than we had initially estimated by quite a bit). I wish we had set out a price and put it in writing the first day, since when she was already doing the dress we had no way to tell her we wouldn't pay what she said!

The ladies at Allegria Bridal were great. I had a very hard time finding my dress, and they were so patient and helpful on each of my three visits to look for dresses. I finally bought a James Clifford at a trunk show, and they were helpful with suggestions on what to change/not change and the color. They were very patient and nice when I had a minor freak-out about the color I ordered (blush) - but they were right, it was the perfect complement to my skin and didn't look pink at all! And then they spent almost an hour with me to select the right veil and jewelry. They have beautiful dresses, a little on the pricey side, but the service was great - such nice women, not at all snotty like you can sometimes find. A great experience!

I was going away for the weekend of a sample sale and asked them to call me if the dress I wanted hadn't sold. They called and I was there as soon as I got back and walked out with my dream dress! The tailoring was very affordable and the staff was so friendly and professional. I dreaded this part of the wedding process the most, but they made it so incredibly stress-free and simple. This boutique is just great.

I purchased both my wedding dress and bridesmaid dresses at Allegria and was so impressed with the level of service. The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful and will make you feel right at home.

They were great.
I found the dress I wanted in the first 3 I tried on (as I recall) and it was probably the fifth place I had gone.
If your style is classic, elegant I think you will find something you like.
Also had a good selection of flower girl dresses, although I ended up making my own.

The staff at Allegria Bridal were very helpful when choosing my wedding dress. I went there with my eye on a specific designers dress and they were very accommodating to my requests. They were not pushy about trying other designers or dresses like some other salons I had been to but they understood my love of this dress and how set I was.

I also live out of state but am getting married in Boston, so they were very understanding that it would take me some time coordinating when I could actually pick up the dress.

They also work with a very reputable seamstress who is just down the road, which makes things easy.

When looking for wedding dresses, I thought I had an idea of what I wanted to wear. When arriving at Allegria, I told my consultant what I thought that was and she immediately pulled some dresses in that style, but also pulled many different styles. I tried all the samples on that she pulled, not very excited about some of the ones she had decided on. One of them was a strapless (which I did not want), lace dress (which I did want) with sparkle (which I definitely didn't want). As soon as I came out of the fitting room, seeing the faces of my family, I knew that it was the one. The consultant was extremely open to what I wanted but also infused her own knowledge of what looks good on my shape, coloring and style. Although it was slightly more than my budget for my dress, they happen to have had an upcoming trunk show of that designer which allowed me to afford it.

But a New Year's Resolution meant my dress needed to be taken in. My dress had all sorts of beautiful beading and detail work and Fumi handled it like a pro. Plus she was very knowledgeable and made me feel like my gorgeous couture was in good hands :)

My Judd Waddell dress from Allegria Bridal was PERFECT. I cannot tell you how many people commented on how beautiful and elegant it was.
My mom, sisters and I had such a nice time at Allegria. The service from Barbara was great, and she was very helpful with advice about what worked for my body. The selection was manageable, and the quality of the dresses is so good that I only tried on about five before I found my perfect silhouette.
The Allegria staff was efficient and helpful, and set me up with Rosa's Alterations in Watertown, which PERFECTED my rather detailed dress to fit me like a glove.
The dress was expensive, but I'm telling you, the quality of the dress was unparalleled and it showed.

I purchased my Judd Waddell wedding gown from Allegria because they are the only bridal boutique in Massachusetts that the designer allows to carry his line, and I can completely see why! Barbara helped me select my gown- actually she was the one who picked it out and suggested that I try it on! I must say, she has great taste! And she was never once pushy about anything.

The other staff member that must be mentioned is Fumi the seamstress. Fumi is INCREDIBLY talented (she designs and makes her own clothes) and I couldnt have been more pleased with the job she did on the alterations and bustle for my gown. Her work alone earned Allegria the 5-star rating in Quality of Service!

Allegria carries a good variety of designer dressers. The staff are friendly and helpful and are always accommodating to your schedule.

They have a good selection of bridesmaid dresses. I ordered mine through them and the girls recieved a 20% discount. Allegria was good at keeping track of the girls' orders and helping them with sizing. Some girls were sized too large, however, and significant alterations were needed on two of them.

There are a limited (read: about 5) number of mother-of-the-brides dresses sold at Allegria. But, definitely a great place for high quality, high class wedding gowns.

Allegria Bridal is pricey. I had gone there just to try on dresses for the first time, not knowing the price range, and not knowing that I'd find my dream dress. It was way more than I had budgeted for a dress, but it was the ONE. I was told that alterations would cost no more than $250 at the seamstress they recommend and send their customers to. However, whether Allegria is to blame or the seamstress is to blame, my alterations cost more than DOUBLE what they had predicted at Allegria. That is something to consider and be prepared for. Also, when I had asked them who the designer of the dress was, they were unable to tell me and told me that it was a "custom design". I thought, fair enough, considering I hadn't purchased the dress yet. Once I had purchased the dress a few days later, I called to ask again, and they still gave me the same answer - "custom design". I found this odd. When I finally received my dress, it said right on the label - "MARISA". I had suspected that it was a Marisa. How bizarre that they couldn't tell me this though. I assume they didn't want me to shop around for a good price. More importantly - my dress DID come in on time.

Allegria Bridal was my 3rd stop on the bridal salon tour. After visiting L'Elite Bridal and Priscilla of Boston, I made an appointment at Allegria, after recommendations from a coworker. I worked with Julie, who was wonderful and made the experience a great one. After discussing budget, style, etc. Julie started pulling amazing dresses that were exactly what I wanted - even though I didn't necessarily know it just yet. My only complaint regarding my experience with Allegria was in relation to notification that my dress had arrived. An email was sent to me, but ended up in a spam folder. There was no follow up notification for 3 weeks. It wasn't until I reached out to the salon to set up alteration appointments that I found out my dress had actually arrived. I would have expected a phone call from the salon, considering the service I had experienced on my first visit. Overall, a great experience - but that did sour my impression of Allegria.

I really loved my wedding dress and got tons of complements on it but I have mixed feelings about my experience at Allegria. Although they were good about providing me with dresses to try within my budget, I felt rushed by the woman who I was working with. I was also told that each week that I waited I would have to pay $50 extra dollars to rush the dress. Since I wasn't 100% sure, i decided to wait a week. When I came back, rather than paying $50 extra in rush fees, they charged me $250. (Same salesperson.) When I asked why I was told something else the week before, I wasn't really given an explanation except that that's what the designer told them. I also decided to pay another extra $200 to have the dress made to my height. I tried the dress on with 2 inch heels when they measured me. The dress arrived being shorter than the sample, but definitely too long to be worn with 2 inch heels. I wound up wearing really high heels to compensate because it was just too complicated to shorten the dress given the detail on the bottom. Finally, part of me needing to pay a rush fee was because they said the seamstress needed the dress in late July. So, I paid all this extra money to rush it and the dress arrived in early July. When I got to the seamstress, she seemed to be in no rush at all.

The Alteration department was HORRIBLE. I cannot make my point strong enough that if you buy a dress here DO NOT have them alter it. I had some custom work done to my dress and when I went for my fitting I expressed the desire to fasten the button to ensure the dress went on smoothly. Disregarding my wishes, the women told me the buttons were taken care of and would be fine. The day of my wedding it took my bridesmaids and HOUR to fasten the buttons. In the process, 3 buttons were broken. I spent thousands of dollars on a designer gown for the sheer fact that things like this should not happen because such poor quality wouldn't plague this designer. After sobbing for an hour plus, I had to go out on my wedding day in front of hundreds of people with a broken gown. 100% at the fault of this bridal boutique. They clearly have no regard to your concerns and proved to me that their attention to MAJOR details isn't existent. You are better off giving your business to a boutique that wont ruin your wedding day with their carelessness.

Please note- this review is regarding alterations. As for shopping and buying the dress I had a great experience.

The alterations process and outcome were terrible.

The seamstress (Fumi) was primarily unavailable on weekends, therefore I had one fitting and the final fitting was the week before my wedding, which I think accounts for her refusal to make any changes. She was also paid at that time and I think once she got the money she was done doing anything else.

The dress was much too tight, and I mentioned this several times including at the first fitting when she was pinning the dress. I was dismissed, and told it would stretch out during the evening and had to be too tight. It took 3 girls 15 minutes to get me zipped and buttoned in. They were unable to hook the corset, it just wouldn't happen. And I had lost about 3 lbs since the first fitting, so it was not me. I was unable to breathe the entire night, and the next day I had bruising on my ribs. It made for a pretty miserable evening.

At the final fitting, I told her the dress was too long, she insisted once it was pressed it would 'puff out'. Well, I spent the evening carrying the front of my dress around, or tripping on it, and whenever I tried to dance with someone, they tripped on it. Not exactly what you want at your wedding.

For close to $500, I was very disappointed in the alterations. I would strongly recommended getting alterations elsewhere.
