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 really enjoyed my experience at Amelia's. I went in with an idea of what kind of dress I wanted, and Maria completely turned me around to exactly what I should have been looking for. She ran the appointment so well in having me try on a variety of dresses, letting me talk about what I liked and disliked, until we found the perfect one. She was so responsive by email in letting me set up fitting appointments that way. I found the prices to be what you would expect - this is probably not the place if you are looking for a cheap deal. The alterations were a flat rate which I appreciated and though the pricing was fair. The only small issue I would point out is the seamstress' hours are limited so there was some work around in scheduling appointments for fittings, but the location was so convenient I didn't mind too much. They have a great selection of wedding and bridesmaid dresses. My mother in law got her dress here too and was really happy with it.

While the ladies are nice- be careful. They do not tell you everything and then you are stuck. If you must buy your dress here fine, but if you want a bargain- LOOK ELSEWHERE! They are OVERPRICED and honestly not worth the money! THEY charge WAY to much for alterations. They are very inflexible and not at all willingly to work with brides- even though you are spending 1000's of dollars with them. My advice- Go to Russell Bridal in Linden NJ. They have a better selection AND their alterations ARE FREE! honest to goodness FREE! I didn't pay a penny except for my dress!

Thank you to Maria and her staff at Amelia's bridal for all of your hard work! I recall going to Maria in tears after visiting 5 boutiques and feeling overwhelmed in finding the perfect dress. Maria took the time to get to know where our wedding venue was, our theme, our colors, and overall look I was trying to achieve for our wedding day! With all of my ideas, she hand picked the dress that was made for me on my day! After selecting the dress (although I was hesitant as it was not something I pictured myself in) It was absolutely breathtaking. I felt so beautiful in it and would have never thought about this dress if it wasn't for Maria's help. The bridesmaids dresses were also hand picked by Maria. We all looked amazing and She was such a pleasure to work with! My husband fell in love with me all over again in that dress! He's so happy to have waited until the day of the wedding to see the dress! Thank you Maria and Ms. Tina for all of your hard work and dedication! My bridesmaids and flower girls thank you as well. Best Regards, Vanessa C. Jimenez

We have been going to Amelia's for years and my family and I had gotten all of my formal dresses for every event from them. I did not get my wedding dress from them only because I had something complete different in mind. However, they did do all of the alterations including creating a unique temporary backing for my dress. They are incredibly sweet and helpful with great ideas! They even did a great job with my custom alterations for a great price! The only reason I gave a 4 for flexibility is because as life time clients of theirs I feel they could have been a bit more flexible with my accessories and girls gifts (girls gifts I did not purchase their because it was just too expensive) Also, there was a big misunderstanding, mistake, and stress about the girls dresses. They did not admit to a mistake but they did quickly fix it without charging my girls to fix it. Lastly, the cleaning and preserving service is EXTREMELY expensive, however, I would not trust anyone else but them with such an important dress! All in all, it was worth it and I could not be happier with my dress and hair accessory.

Made mistakes with essential components of attire ( color/style of sashes) & charged wedding party for corrections. Dresses weren't in on date promised (2weeks difference). Purchased 8 bridesmaids dresses & bridal gown spent over $6500 & was harassed about a $30 bra insert that was suggested by shop! Money hungry & petty!

I loved my dress. The alterations came out great. They were so easy to work with throughout the process. However, the only negative is that I feel that there was a lack of communication when it came to ordering my dress and final payment. When I ordered my dress I did not put enough of a deposit down but was not told that my dress would not be ordered until I put down more money. The dress came in on time so it wasn't a problem. At the final payment, I was not told I had to bring in cash and the alterations were not added to the final total and instead were written on the side of my receipt. On the day before my wedding, when I had a lot of other things to do, I had to find a bank and withdraw cash and also come up with more money for the alterations. Despite this, I was happy with the results of my dress and would recommend them again but would recommend to other brides to ask questions and get the details.
