This past weekend I bought my dress at Amanda Ritchey Bridal. I had my Mother, Aunt who were both out of state coming to go dress shopping with me. I was interested in a particular designer and I found them online, I called on Wednesday and was able to get an appointment the next day. Courtney helped me into numerous dresses and listened to what I wanted to look like on my day. I found two dresses I really liked but needed time to make a decision-she in no way pressured me to buy and in fact told me to sleep on it. The next day I went to Davids, Alfred Angelo and the customer service just did not even compare- I felt like I was a priority at Amanda Ritchey from the beginning and as an indecisive type of person in general they gave me the time I needed to make a decision without feeling pressure. The next day I came back with my mom, aunt and fiancé's mother who saw pictures but wasn't convinced-needless to say she loved the dress. I didn't even have an appointment and it was a holiday weekend and they accommodated me right away. I went home an ultimately decided it was the one. I came back the next day again without an appointment and they had no complaint about seeing me again and trying on the dress. They measured me and measured my hip to the hem of the dress for a custom fit. It was a little more expensive than I had wanted but I felt that having excellent service was worth spending more for less stress in the end. We asked about cost of cleaning a veil (it was my mother's) and she called me to follow up with how much it would cost. They made my wedding dress experience wonderful and I cannot recommend them enough!!

Amanda is the owner and she is wonderful! She takes personal time to spend with each of her brides even though technicaly you are being helped by another representative. The shop is clean and everyone is very attentive to your needs. I found my dress here and majority of all my accessories too! I also found my bridesmaid dresses here too. Top quality for bridal & bridesmaid dresses. Bridesmaid dress prices are a little high for my taste but you get better quality compared to Davids Bridal and better attention too. Love love lover Amanda Ritchey and her Parkville store.

My mom did visit the Fallston store she personally was not as impressed with that store BUT the Parkville store and it's associates are amazing! Amanda the owner is awesome at both locations but the staff at the Fallston store was not as impressive according to my mom.

Overal very wonderful!

Amanda Ritchey's was the third boutique I visited on the search for my perfect wedding dress. I wish I wouldn't have wasted my time at the first two. The first two dress shops made me feel like just another number and they really tried to push the sale. At Amanda Ritchey's it was the complete opposite. I was the center of attention for the 2 hours I was there. Amanda, the owner, and Lauren personally helped me find the perfect dress. They even put me in dresses that I would've never imagined myself in, yet I absolutely loved them! I never once felt rushed or pressured into making a decision. I found my dream dress and when I left, felt like I had 3 new friends. I can't say enough good things about the girls at Amanda Ritchey's. They exceeded all expectations. I'll be going back this weekend with my bridesmaids to look at bridesmaid dresses for them.

I said yes to the dress today!!!
The reason I found this store is because I found out they carried a designer I really liked online. When I called to make an appointment, she told me that line didn't do very well and that they still had some dresses, but weren't carrying the new lines. I almost cancelled since this store (Fallston) was over an hour from my home in Annapolis. I AM SO GLAD I DIDNT CANCEL.
First, and least importantly, the store decor was adorable, and light so you can see everything well.
Katherine, the woman who helped me was amazing. She gave me a little bit of everything and was very patient. (This was my first time trying on dresses) She was very attentive and was paying attention to things I didn't even realize I was saying. Needless to say, she put me in the perfect dress.
What really made me happy was that when I wasn't ready to pull the trigger (could I really have found MY dress at the first store?!) she was totally cool with it!
So I went to a few more places and found dresses I liked, but none that gave me the same feeling.
So I called back the next day and asked if there was any way I could just slip into the dress one more time before I pull the trigger. (This was a Saturday when they are very busy, I'm sure!) and they told me to just come in whenever and they would get me into it. I put it on, loved it just as much and ordered right then and there.
I truly believe that buying a wedding dress is 50% the dress and 50% how you feel. I loved the dress and the ladies made me feel great, so it was a pretty easy decision!

On and one last thing - dress and veil both under budget!!!! Yessssss!!!

I had a great dress shopping (and buying) experience at Amanda Ritchey. The owner, Amanda, personally helped me during my appointment. I had a great time and ultimately found my dress! Amanda Ritchey Bridal was my first of three appointments over a weekend. I was a bit apprehensive with the dress shopping experience but as soon as I walked in, sat down with Amanda and started talking with her, I began to feel at ease. She asked some questions to get to know me, my style and what my wedding was going to be like. Instead of me or my mom and sister going through all the racks, she was the one who pulled all the dresses for me to try on. I preferred this since she was the expert and had a good idea of what would look good on me.
The store was not crowded which was great in my opinion. There was only one other customer there for a fitting. I felt very comfortable and really appreciated Amanda's professionalism, personal attention and overall kindness!
I ended up falling in love with a dress that I didn't know I would like! I envisioned a lace dress but after trying several on, we all agreed, while they were all very pretty, the style was just not "me". The dress was also under my budget! Yes!
While I was pretty sure I had found THE dress, I still went to my other appointments that weekend to be sure. The next night, I was able to go back to Amanda Ritchey Bridal and try the dress back on. Then I was 100% sure I did, in fact, find my dress!
The dress arrived within plenty of time before my wedding. Anne, the seamstress, was also very helpful and patient with all of our (well, mainly my mom's) questions about the fitting and alterations. After 2 fittings, the dress fit like a glove.
A big thank you to Amanda Ritchey Staff for making this experience so fun for me, my mom and my sister-we had a great time. The day of the wedding, I received many compliments on it, how it matched so well with my venue and how it was so "me"! I couldn't agree more! Thank you!!!

The initial professionalism was outstanding. When my dress arrived, it was outstanding. My bridesmaids did not get their dresses there because they had the opposite experience. No returned phone calls, no ordering, etc. They ultimately found a great bridal salon that ended up having a better selection so it worked out. The seamstress is far from professional and messed my dress up. They did "fix" it but it was never the beautiful dress that I had ordered. It was doable. The manager was phenomenal but I would never recommend getting alterations there. I look at photos and know that it could have been so different.

I loved visiting Amanda Ritchey! It was the first shop I went to, after vising many, that I felt comfortable and felt like the girls helping me were listening to what I wanted and trying to help me find the dress!! I found my dress and sash there for a very reasonable price and then had their recommended seamstress, Anne, alter my dress. She did such a great job and was very flexible with her meeting time!!

First, let me say that I absolutely loved working with the staff at Amanda Ritchey. They were so sweet, easy to get along with, and kind. There was a point as we approached our wedding that I feel like I was literally on the phone with them daily and they just could not have been any nicer or more pleasant. It is truly a positive place, and I fell in love with my gown immediately as a result of all of the positive energy and warmth I felt from the staff. We also ordered all of our bridesmaid dresses from them, and they worked with us to customize our order to get exactly what we wanted. Everyone's gowns were gorgeous and so well made! Our only small hiccup was with regard to our groom's and groomsmens' tuxedos. Because we had such a positive experience with all our female formalwear at Amanda Ritchey, we decided to use them for our tuxedos as well. Nearly every tuxedo had a problem, and it caused some stress for us the few days before our wedding. That said, they helped us work everything out, which is all I could have asked for in this situation. I wholeheartedly recommend Amanda Ritchey for all things related to bridal, bridesmaid, and mother of the bride gowns (and even party dresses because so much of what they carry is just so pretty!). I hope I get to be a bridesmaid or have a formal event in the near future so I have the opportunity to work with all of these lovely ladies again!

While I got a beautiful dress for a good price, I had a horrible experience with Ann (the seamstress) and Amanda's response to my frustration with the seamstress. Ann tried multiple times to fix my dress and was completely unable to make the dress fit me. She claimed I had gained AND lost weight multiple times in a two week period. Her alterations were not even close to fitting me and went from big too big to too small. She blamed me for the problems each time. When I spoke to Amanda, she was initially very unwilling to help and said "the dress just won't ever fit like that." Finally after about 7 fittings, I fixed seamstresses and the new seamstress fixed it within 5 hours perfectly. Ann's alterations looked horrible and I would never recommend her to anyone else. There were loose strings coming out and the seam wasn't even closed on one side! The boning stuck out about 2 inches and the wrong layer of my slip was altered at one point. Amanda and Ann were very pushy in all of our conversations. Amanda claimed that Ann didn't work for her (even though she had a key and my payment was made to Amanda's company) and she therefore couldn't help much because I had to take it up with Ann. When I got the dress back, it had large black marks on it that weren't there before alterations started. I guess you get what you pay for. It was not worth saving some money to deal with this the week of my wedding. After all of this, I still had to pay full price for my alterations. Eventually Amanda realized that this was a disaster and did try to help by offering me a new dress on the Thursday before my wedding.
