The only reason why I gave one less star for some of the categories is because I have yet to finish the dress process. My experience thus far has been great. My mom and I came into the boutique after booking an appointment over the phone. We came into this experience already having been burned elsewhere, so we were a little on edge. Maria was very sympathetic to our situation. We were very clear about the budget, what I was looking for, etc. and Maria couldn't have been sweeter. She came out with three or four options, all of which I was more than satisfied with, loved, and had a hard time choosing between them. Maria gave me/us more than enough time to sit with each dress and think about which one I couldn't live without, offering her opinions when needed. We felt very comfortable with her and felt no pressure whatsoever. Didn't feel like we were getting the run around. More will be revealed in time with fittings and alterations, but so far, so good!

This bridal shop is one of the few in Yonkers. I decided to go there as my first bridal shopping experience. Everyone in the shop was pleasant. It is a very small shop and not many options. It is definitely not the place for a fun experience. The consultants are very straight to the point. I told them my price point (1500) and immediately was told there weren't many choices. Although it wasn't a miserable experience, it wasn't that I envisioned.

Had a great experience from beginning to end. Maria and the staff of Amelia's was great. My 1st visit to the shop was very pleasant, Maria asked what I had in mind for dresses and my price range. I was shown many different options and proceeded to try them out. The dresses were beautiful and I found a gorgeous sweetheart Maggie Sottero gown. The alterations were fantastic, my dress held in place the whole night. Highly recommend Amelia's Bridal for a great experience, beautiful gowns and knowledgeable staff.

I got my dress for my 11/14/15 wedding from Amelia's Bridal and they were absolutely the best! Maria helped me from day one. She helped me pick out my wedding dress and my bridesmaid dresses. She was knowledgeable and patient. They even offer a service to come on your wedding day and help you get dressed which I did and It was VERY helpful. Maria arrived early and stayed late - she helped me get dressed and came prepared in case anything went wrong. They did a great job and were so helpful from start to finish!

I tried to give them the benefit of the doubt & ignore the horrid reviews they have on google. I saw that Amelia's carried the designers I was looking for. As a diligent shopper I called to see if they had any bridesmaids’ gowns on hand so I may see them in person. I called & they had 3. I was thrilled as they had the 1 I wanted to choose, BUT wanted to make sure I liked it as much in person. As for the flower girl dress they didn't have the exact dress I had wanted for my niece BUT they had some from that designer. I made an appointment.
I travel 45 minutes down to the store to meet my sister(bridesmaid), my niece (flower girl, 4 yrs old), my nephew (ringer bearer, 18 months) and 2 other bridesmaids to look at the dresses. I walk inside speak to an individual. A minute later she informs me that they sold 1 of the samples that I had requested to see. NO APOLOGY! She showed me 1 dress she had & it was an alternate that I had chosen. When I asked about the 3rd dress they said they had, she told me they sold that one too. NO APOLOGY again. I look on the floor & there are garment pins all over the floor. I inquired who the person was who took down my information that day on the phone. The individual there wouldn't tell me.
Not once did I receive an apology for them selling the dresses and not informing me. The appropriate thing would have been for them to notify me prior to my appointment that the dresses were not available so I did not waste my time & effort to come down & look at 1 dress! Not to mention APOLOGIZE for doing it. I walked out.
I WILL NEVER EVER do business with them. They couldn't pay me to buy from them. I will be posting this review wherever I can. Every social media site, Wedding wire & whatever other websites I can find. My bridesmaids will be doing the same.
Godspeed if you choose to do business with these horrid individuals. I wonder if they moved from Mt Vernon in hopes people wouldn't realize who they are. Shame on them.

This was my first time ever looking for a dress and I was excited about the experience. However, I was disappointed to say the least. I asked for a seat for my mother who is a much older woman and they stated they didn't have any chairs but when I went to the back to use the rest room there were a stack just laying there. I was only shown dresses for a 3k budget and was told "this is all we have in your price range". I was there for less than an hour and felt rushed to get in and get out. There was no sweetness or pep you would expect in a bridal store. She never asked me my name, what i was looking for or what my concerns were. This was not not the experience I hoped for and will not return.

I loved every dress I tried on at Amelia's Bridal. I could have easily picked one of five different dresses as my wedding gown. The dress was more money than I would have wanted to spend, but I thought it would be worth it. Alterations were also very expensive, along with the hairpiece I bought from them, and the veil.
When I came in for my dress fittings, they weren't totally responsive to what I wanted. When I said I wanted the dress a little longer in the front, or tighter around the bust, they would push back and argue with me a bit. I had to be forceful to get them to do what I was asking for.
The dress I wore was truly beautiful. I have only two complaints about the dress. The first is the bustle. When in my last dress fitting, I knew the bustle wasn't strong enough to hold the long train of the dress. In another example of Amelia's employees arguing with me, they said it would be fine. Sure enough, I did one dance with my dress and the bustle came completely undone. I ended up carrying my train for many dances, and spending way too much time trying to get the bustle to stay up throughout the night. The most frustrating part of this was that in pictures, you can see the tool clearly, dragging along as I walk or dance. The tool ruined the pictures taken during my father daughter dance because it is such an eyesore.
The second complaint I had about my dress was the way the bust fit. In my second to last dress fitting, when I bent over, you could clearly see the cups they had sown into the bust of the dress. I told them this looked horrible and needed to be fixed. In my last dress fitting, it was better but still a problem. They assured me they would fix it for the day of. Sure enough, in pictures where I am leaning forward, you can clearly see the cups.
I would use them again because the dress was stunning, but I wouldn't want other brides to go through the problems I had with the bustle and bust on their wedding day.
