I can not say enought GREAT things about the staff at Ana's Bridal. They were knowledgeable, professional, extremely helpful, and did everything they could to make me feel like a bride! After having a not so good experience somewhere else, they made me like I should -- like what you see in movies! Tthey completely changed my dissatisfaction with wedding dress shopping into something fun, painless, and an overall great experience. They knew what kind of dress I was looking for, but also showed me dresses that fit well with my body shape and the type of wedding I am having.

The discounts they give you on all the rest of your wedding essentials (tux, bridesmaids, mom's dress, flower girl, veil, etc.) was just an added bonus! It truly was an amazing experience to buy my wedding dress from them.

Awful awful awful, I'm not even sure how they are still in business. Where do I even begin? I made an appointment for me and my bridesmaids, I had quite a few and it's difficult to get us all together at times, made the appointment and tried to show the sales girl (Brittany) some ideas. She could not seem any less interested and clueless, absolutely no help at all. This being my first wedding and being the first out of all my friends to get married, we needed the help, which this girl was clearly not willing to give. We figured when are we going to be able to get all together and make a decision so we just stayed there. We had made the appointment 2 weeks prior. A few weeks later I ran into some troubles and needed to change my color, I was told wouldn't be a problem because nothing was ordered yet. I change it a week later my flower girl dress came in the wrong color. Which I was told was never ordered (I wouldn't have changed the color if that was the case). They ended up fixing it for me. So I finally get my order in (a few of my bridesmaids were not able to order in time due to pregnancy) we ordered well in advance we put the order in, in December of 2013 they told us 8-12 weeks. Around the 13-14th week I start calling, no answers, leaving messages to be returned, no calls back, I also needed to order more dresses before it was too late, I finally get an associate they say they will call back. No calls back. At this point I'm miserable with them and had to send my other two girls to a different bridal boutique because I can't get anyone to answer. At month 6 all my girls are starting to get nervous and calling nonstop. Still no answers no returned calls. So realizing that I am going to have to physically go there to get service and take time out of my busy schedule, when I do get there they tell me my dresses 'just came in today'. In all if your looking for a stress filled wedding and nerve wracking experience go with anas.

Ana's Bridal was a dream to work with! Ana and Michelle are extremely talented, and did an amazing job on my wedding dress. They were so patient with me, and really did turn my dream dress into a reality! To say I love my dress would be an understatement! :) I absolutely recommend Ana's!

First of all, Ana herself (the owner) is awesome.She is helpful and kind and great at what she does. We love love love my gown as well. HOWEVER... my overall experience with them was awful. My first fitting was June 2nd. The next one was July 15th. When we arrived on time we were told that the dress wasn't finished yet. I only needed the bust taken in half an inch and a bustle. I had to wait over an hour because these 2 alterations were not finished in the 6 weeks they requested. They gave me my appointment card for the pickup date which stated July 24th, and the salesgirl told me it would be ready to take home at 2:00. When I arrived that day they told me that my appointment was the previous Monday--a fact that was never mentioned to me once, nor was it the date on the appointment card. I still have the card to prove it. And when I showed the girl the card she rolled her eyes. Not to mention if that were the case, no one called me that Monday to inform me I missed an appointment. Either way, the dress was supposed to be done, steamed, and ready to be taken home at 2:00. AGAIN, I was told it wasn't done. My wedding was in 2 days. I was livid. AGAIN I had to wait, this time waiting over 90 minutes. They told me to leave and come pick it up in the morning, but at that point a had a bunch of appointments and commitments. I wouldn't have been able to pick up the dress. Plus after waiting an hour and a half, I wasn't leaving without my dress. They also told me I should have called to make sure the dress was done. Seriously? They gave ME the appointment to pick it up. What was the point of making an appointment if that was the case? And why didn't they tell me to call when they gave me the appointment? DO NOT GO HERE. Even though I love my dress, the alteration process was ridiculous and extremely disappointed. Not worth the aggravation. I'm just glad I didn't get the bridesmaids dresses there too.

Ana's Bridal has many beautiful dresses to choose from. I found they had the best selection of gowns, bridesmaid dresses and mother of the bride dresses. The owner helped my daughter during her first appointment to find a wedding dress. She was protective of her and made sure my daughter, the bride, was getting what she wanted and not what I wanted, which I appreciated. The beautiful gown my daughter picked out was a lot less expense than I thought it was going to be. Their prices are reasonable. The bridesmaids all bought their dresses there and were happy. It took a long time for my daughter's dress to come and and there was some confusion about the delivery date even though she ordered it 7 months before the wedding. We made many calls to find out about delivery as it was getting very close to the wedding date and most times the calls went to voice mail and we didn't get a call back. The dress finally came in and they accommodated her for the fitting but the alterations were expensive. Everything worked out and the wedding gown was gorgeous and all the other dresses were beautiful.

I don't like to give negative reviews, and I am rarely one to complain, as I am pretty easy going, but this has to be done: RUN RUN RUN away from this place! What a horrendous experience for me as the bride and my bridesmaids! I could write a book on all the issues, but I will try to be as concise as possible. The main point is that they lure you in with individual attention and "deals," yet once you have chosen and paid them, they are chaotic, unorganized, inattentive, impossible to get a hold of, and constantly charging you for things they NEVER told you about.
Some examples:
I was looking into possibly adding a halter or shoulder straps to my dress. Ana showed me some options, pinned them into the dress, and never said another word. After I left, the one helpful staff member in the entire place, came into the parking lot to tell me the strap costs $495! But they would "let" me have it for $350 (I did not get the strap).
ALL of us, bride and bridesmaids, were charged for steaming the dresses, as if any of us were going to walk out with wrinkled dresses, even though Ana I had free alterations (steaming is not included apparently, another thing I wasn't told ahead of time).
I was told I had free alterations, only to get a call the day I was picking up my dress trying to sell me a garment bag (another added cost that is not told to you or included - I didn't buy one from them) and was told I owed $300! Once I reminded them I had free alterations, they said they would have to find my contract. When I went to pick up the dress, they again tried to charge me $300. In the end, it cost $75 for the steaming. Oh, and all final payments and alterations have to be paid in CASH.
The bridesmaids were all ordered dresses that were too big, and some of them were charged $100 for alterations.
The character limit doesn't allow me to post the rest, but the point is this is not the place to find good customer service, attention, value, or cost disclosure.

Ana's Bridal are great to work with. I brought in a few pictures of dresses I loved and Toryn was able to gather up about 10 dresses that fit my taste and style. This was the first place I went wedding dress shopping and walked out the same day with my dress picked! They were accommodating and can do all alterations in house. I have since met with the seamstress and have had the first step of alterations. She was also great work with and you can tell she really knows what she is doing. Overall a great experience so far.

Anna's was a dream to work with. I bought my dress, the bridesmaids dresses and my mothers dress here and also did all of our alterations here. Myself and my party had an amazing experience. They were very flexible with me and my out of town party members and let us come in whenever we were in the area for our appointments. I also completely customized my dress and they worked tirelessly with my on this to make sure every detail was perfect. I can't say enough and Michelle and Anna's professionalism and skills. These ladies know exactly what they are talking about, are extremely knowledgable about wedding fashion and are extremely talented seamstresses.

Anna's was a dream to work with. I bought my dress, the bridesmaids dresses and my mothers dress here and also did all of our alterations here. Myself and my party had an amazing experience. They were very flexible with me and my out of town party members and let us come in whenever we were in the area for our appointments. I also completely customized my dress and they worked tirelessly with my on this to make sure every detail was perfect. I can't say enough and Michelle and Anna's professionalism and skills. These ladies know exactly what they are talking about, are extremely knowledgable about wedding fashion and are extremely talented seamstresses.

Ana and her staff were so accommodating to myself, my mother/mother-in-law, and my bridal party of 7. I bought my dress from Ana's because it was a listed seller of the dress I found online and fell in love with. The bridal consultants suggested I try on a few styles to be sure I liked the one I came in for, which I am pleased I did. I still purchased the dress I initially found, but staff at Ana's really try to help you find the perfect dress, even when you may not be sure where to begin. My party also purchased their dresses there, and Ana and her staff treated them all like queens with great service and professionalism. And shopping there was fun! My dress required quite a bit of alterations (completely changed the back from lace up to become a simple zipper), and Ana worked her magic and transformed the dress so that it was just as I envisioned. It was the dress of my dreams! It fit like a glove, even during trial fittings. I wish I could wear it more often than just my wedding day! I highly recommend Ana's Bridal boutique to any bride looking for a positive and memorable dress shopping experience! Thank you Ana and her wonderful staff!

Thank you to Ana's Bridal for the beautiful wedding dress. The value would have been one thing but your willingness to add and remove elements as needed really made the difference for me. I knew that I would walk down the aisle exactly as I envisioned it. After describing to the sales woman what look I was going for, she brought over 5 dresses. It was the second dress. Oh, and the alterations were, for lack of a better word, seamless. Thank you so much.

I will NEVER recommend this “boutique” to anyone…ever. I will be honest, I had read several horrible (not just bad) reviews about Ana’s before shopping there. I originally went to Ana’s in November of 2012 to look for bridesmaid’s dresses for my July 2013 wedding. My MOH and my GM purchased their dresses that day and I narrowed down a few for my BMs. We returned January 26th with my BMs and family. Each girl picked out their own dresses and they ordered that day. Before placing the order, we checked the colors on each of the dresses, signed off on everything, and were told by the two employees who helped us, that each dress was all set. In total we bought 6 BM dresses and 1 GMOB dress.Then it began…one week later, my aunt contacted me saying an employee from Ana’s called to tell her they made a mistake on one of the dresses she bought that day and that in order to get in the color we needed they would be charging us $15. I immediately contacted Ana’s and spoke to one of the employees that helped us that day, was put on hold 3 times before getting Ana herself on the phone. Ana explained that the dress company does not make that specific dress in the material or color I requested and I would have to pay $15 to get the right one. Nothing of the sort was explained to us the day we ordered. Ana continued to explain the situation telling me, “It’s not as if the dress costs an arm and a leg so $15 really isn’t that much money” (this is a direct quote...I wrote everything down during this conversation!). I then went on to explain I’d like to cancel the order, she told me that was not possible, then I told her I would be letting everyone know that their customer service is awful. She patronized me by telling me she wants everything perfect for me and my day and that she would like to fix it. At the end of the conversation, I asked who would be responsible for the $15 and she replied, “Well, sweetie, I think you are”. I never paid the $15!

I went to Ana's to lookfor a wedding gown and left feeling confused and deceived. When I told thestaff about the style and the budget I'm looking for, they found a few dressesfor me to try on. I found one that matched what I was looking for, but theytold me that dress was discontinued, so the only way to get it was to buy thesample dress at a discount. The sample dress was a size 14 and I'm a size 5/6,not to mention, the dress was a bit worn out with a few pieces falling off..They assured me if I go with this dress, they can alter it to my size and stillretain its original form. I put a deposit down, but after I left I started toreconsider. I did some research, andfirstly I found out that the dress was NOT discontinued by the maker. Secondly, I found most people don't recommendthat a bridal gown be taken in more than two sizes, and at most 4, especiallywith a gown like this with a lot of lace or embroidery. Lastly, the cost they quoted me to resize andfix the dress was as much or more than the discount they gave me. I called backthe next morning to cancel, and the girl who helped me on that day told me Iwas confused and she never told me the dress was discontinued. When I mentionedabout the dress being too big to alter, she said they've done many times beforeto resize a dress size 14 to size 0, which I think is ridiculous, especiallyfor a v-neck dress. When I asked for the deposit back because they misled me,they refused even though I cancelled within 12 hours. They deceived me to try to sell me thisworn-out dress and then offered me complimentary services with a seamstress topatch things up. Overall, I feel that they are trying to make a sale and pullone over on me to get rid of a worn out sample dress. I should have read some of these reviewsbefore I went there, it would save me a headache. It was the first and the lasttime I'm going to Ana's. A lesson learned but I wouldn't recommend any of myfriends to go to Ana's.

I wish I could give this place a 0. I will say that I bought my dress there, and that dress was beautiful and I got it for a great price. The experience buying my dress was odd, but I did purchase. I should have stopped there. I unfortunately went for alterations, because I wanted a corset back and I thought they had a good deal, but the rest of my experience was a horror show. Every time you call, you take a huge gamble that the person answering has ANY idea what they are talking about. I called three times in one day and got three very different answers to my questions. They are not upfront about how much alterations cost, though if you look around downstairs, you can find the price list. And NOT ONCE did they discuss what they were doing to my dress nor how much it cost, so the final cost was a HUGE unpleasant surprise to me. When I purchased my dress, I bought the size she told me would be right (a size too small) because I wanted to add the corset back. However, when I had the corset added, they let out the sides, something they NEVER discussed with me, either before they did it, or after I came for another fitting, and it cost me $50. Apparently that was not the right size like I was told when I purchased the gown. I also had beading added, which was nice in the end, but was a terrible journey to get there. First, we discussed a preview of the beading before they did the whole bodice, and they did COMPLETELY the wrong thing. I did decide to get beading anyway and the next time I came it was almost complete, and a little more intense than I wanted, but what could I do? Have them take more time and money to fix it? Not after all the trouble I had. And in the end the beading was $250. It was so much more than I expected, I was NEVER told how long it would take and how expensive it would be. I could keep writing about several more horrors I dealt with with Ana's bridal, but I think I have made my point. DO NOT GO HERE, ESPECIALLY FOR ALTERATIONS!

Ana and her team has yet to fail me. I've gone to Ana's Bridal numerous times for different weddings and know family members and friends who have purchased their attire at Ana's Bridal and they always do an amazing job. The dress I purchased was so beautiful, I fell in love with it the moment I tried it on. It was all I was looking for and more, except there was a slight issue.... It was a bit over my budget. Ana worked with me and worked the pricing to meet my budget! I was soooooo happy and very pleased. The process of purchasing the dress and fitting was absolutely seamless. Thank you ANA and your team!!

Ana's Boutique is the place to find a great dress inexpensively. I found my dress here (as did my cousin and all her friends!) on my first visit.
When I returned for all of my fittings and alterations - Ana's was helpful, professional, and kind. My dress was amazing - it was perfect! (all the other dresses I saw were fantastic as well).
They only do alterations on Monday and Tuesday nights - which was very inconvenient for me as I live out of town, but the drive was worth it!

Ana's Bridal was the only place I could find that had the wedding dress I decided I wanted when I first saw it online. The only thing I didn't like with them was they had specified times when you could do certain things. I went through them with my bridesmaids gowns as well and I think you could only do alterations on Monday or Tuesday, which was hard for my bridesmaids. However, the gowns were affordable and they gave me a discount on the bridesmaids gowns since I bought my own gown there.

I purchased my wedding gown and had the alterations done at Ana's. They were flexible about when I could come in for my alterations and they did a great job. My dress was absolutely beautiful. I got it off the rack at a great price so it needed a fair amount of alterations and they were excellent! Michelle did my last fitting and she was very reassuring. There were dresses in a huge range of prices and styles. My only complaint was that at initial visit I was a bit frustrated because the girl that was helping me upstairs seemed impatient and somewhat put out by the amount of dresses I wanted to try on. Otherwise everything was great and my dress fit perfectly.

When i went with my bridesmaid to actually pick out the dresses the staff were amazing and made sure that everything was the way i wanted. When it came to my bridesmaids to do their fitting they all seemed to have a problem with the service. They were all told different prices for the same exact alternations. One of them were told that the hem would be $30 and the other was told $35. not a big deal they just paid it but the price should be the same if its the same thing. they were both the same dress size and the dress length was also the same so not sure why one was $5 more than the other. Besides my bridesmaid having trouble with the service that was provided. Ana the owner was the best and she was always so friendly and knew me by my name every time i went there. She helped me pick out the most beautiful hair piece ever.

I can honestly say I had a great experience here. I only got my wedding dress here, I ordered my bridesmaids dresses from J Crew. My dad and I went to pick out my wedding dress together and we had a great time. I live 3 hours away so I couldn't make it down during the week for fittings and they were very accomodating. I know a lot of people have had problems with their dresses coming in late, but that is a result of the manufacturer not necessarily Ana's. I really did have a great experience here.

Eh...

I found a dress I adored online but had an incredibly "cheapy" budget in mind. Ana's carried it, so I went to see it and a few others once I discovered it exceeded my personal budget. They went out of their way to borrow samples of the dress I finally decided upon which I appreciated.

Once the deposit was in hand, totally different story. They don't answer the phone! My dress and my maids were both purchased there and it was a nightmare to do fittings. We'd pretty much show up because we couldn't get anyone on the phone. Everyone was helpful once we were there but all you could hear was the incessant ringing.

I had a final fitting and arrived two days before the wedding for pickup. I saw the dress, took it home and didn't think much about it until the big day. While getting dressed my MOH and BM noticed some errant threads on the zipper. These threads warped the zipper, making it jump off its track and making my dress unable to be zipped closed. I think they were left from the alterations because I tried it on twice earlier with no problems. I had myself SEWN into the dress and showed up late to my wedding. I don't know if Ana's can be blamed per se...but nobody had time to think about it, the problem just needed fixing.

I'm sure however, if we had called for help no one would have answered the phone!!!!

I'm really torn about this particular vendor. At the end of the day the dress looked great and fit perfectly and I got a really great price on its so I'm happy and would definitely do it all over again. But, as others have pointed out there was a lot of stress along the way. They are extremely unorganized. I showed up for my second fitting and the dress wasn't ready -- apparently they didn't know I was coming in even though it was right there in the appointment book. Then they made me feel like it was my fault for scheduling my fittings too far in advance of the wedding which was ridiculous because they accepted the appointment and I'd explained to them why I was doing them so early. I also made the mistake of not asking for a quote on alterations before starting them and they ended up being quite expensive and a lot more than I had expected. In summary they have a great selection, good prices on dresses and do a great job with alterations but they need to work on customer service and organization.

I also made the mistake of not asking for a quote on alterations before starting them and they ended up being quite expensive and a lot more than I had expected. In summary they have a great selection, good prices on dresses and do a great job with alterations but they need to work on customer service and organization. Read less

I love the wedding gown that I purchased from Ana's and my sister's Maid of Honor dress as well. We were both able to make appointments for alterations without any issue, however if you call and get the answering machine, I would not bother to leave a message as no one will call you back. Ana did all of the alterations for my sister and myself, and our dresses looked beautiful and fit us well on the day of our wedding.

Ana's was ok to deal with. They never called me about anything - I had to call them regarding the dress being in, when to have my first and second fitting, and when I could pick the dress up. That being said, I love my dress, and it fit perfectly. Just remember to bring cash for alterations - I forgot and had to leave and come back.

I bought my dress, my bridesmaids, and my mother's dresses at Ana's. My experience was wonderful. I am a plus size bride so I was happy that the boutique had a large variety. It's a nice feeling to actually wear the dress and not have hold it up in front of you. Besides the dress were gorgeous. The staff helped me pick one that would flatter my figure and fit my budget. My bridesmaids wore the same designer and color, but different dress styles. My girls went into the boutique on different occassions to shop around and the staff was always friendly and professional. It does get busy on Saturdays during the bridal season so there will be a lot of girls. You just need patience when shopping (of course!) Towards the end, during my final fittings, I was given the best treatment. They altered my dress to my specifications (added a sweatheart neckline and embellished the bussel with crystal appliques). They found me trendy accessories for my hair and a beautiful veil. They explained to me the terms of the boutique up front. So I knew that the fittings were a month before the wedding date; fittings needed to be scheduled in advance; that the final payment was in cash; the extra costs associated with special ordering; the cost of alterations. My bridesmaids and my mother's knew the same. Because of this our experience was seamless and without hassle. These terms were not a downside to the wonderful service and quality of Ana's staff. The quality is wonderful! I would shop there again and again. My mom still buys nightlife and dinner cruise dresses there! Just beautiful dresses.

My overall experience at Ana?s was okay as I found the perfect gown at a reasonable price and the alterations were done well. However I would caution all brides to make sure that they have all information in writing that clearly states what is/isn?t included with the purchase of the gown and shop policies regarding acceptable forms of payment and appointment availability. I was caught off guard on few occasions? I was misled by a sales person (not Ana) about the inclusion of alterations at the time that I purchased the gown. When it came time for fittings, they would only allow week day appointments despite the fact that I was coming from out of state and had to travel over an hour to get there. I was disappointed that my gown did not come with a garment bag (only a flimsy plastic cover like what you?d get at the dry cleaner). In the end I walked away with a beautiful gown that fit like a glove? just had a few bumps in the road getting there.

Im sorry if there was any misunderstandments over the policy. We do state them in our store and on your contract and in person. We do now only do fitting during the week Mon-Fri from 10am-9pm. We believe its to crazy to do fittings on a saturday and we are closed on sundays. We do offer a different garment bag for $20.00 if you chose we dont expect our customers to buy a bag and we dont push that. But im glad everything fit you perfectly and best of luck. And thank your for your business

the only reason I am not giving them 0 stars is because my dress looked great, and in the end all of their mistakes were resolved before the wedding. To sum it up- This place is terrible-seriously DO NOT GO THERE! The only reason why I did was because they were the only place within 50 miles that carried the designer for my dress?but from day 1, we had issues?.they promised us a deal on everything because we were buying all dresses and tuxes from them (7 dresses and 11 tuxes) yet when we were ready to purchase, they said they never agreed to that. Then, they called about 2 months before the bridesmaid dresses were supposed to be in, and said that they had come in early and everyone had 30 days to pay the final balance. I?ve heard of paying the balance before alterations begin, but seriously, no one was prepared for that on such short notice- especially when they have stupid rules about the balance being due in cash only. Next up, my BM dresses had a lot of stitching that created almost ?bustle-like? pick-ups all over the back of the dress. Before I ordered the dress, I asked if that could be removed because I wanted the dresses cut tea-length. I was told it wouldn?t be a problem. I even went with my MOH for her first fitting to show them exactly what I wanted done to the dress-again, all of the stitching could come out-no problem. Fast forward to the week of the wedding, I find out from one of my BM?s that they left two of the stitches-one on each side of the dress. I called Ana?s and was told that in order to remove those, it would require taking apart the entire seam of the dress, and if I wanted it done it would be another $15-$20 per dress. I told her that alterations should have been free, and she said that what I was asking for wasn?t an alteration it was a cosmetic fix of the dress. Regardless?.this was NEVER brought to my attention when I ordered the dress the year before or the month before at the fitting! What it came down to, was that they got to the end, realized it was going to be too much work, and then fed me a bunch of BS to get more money. I almost just paid the $120 to have them fixed because I wasn?t going to make my BM?s pay more at that point. Well in the end, I didn?t love the dresses, but I didn?t down-right hate them, so it wasn?t worth the money. Finally, the tuxes were a DISASTER! They make you go in 4 months before the wedding, but then the tuxes get delivered the week of the wedding! 7 out of 11 tuxes had issues-shirts too small, pants not hemmed, wrong sizes altogether, missing shoes. My dad?s tux came in the DAY BEFORE the wedding. The nephew?s tux jacket had to be picked up the MORNING OF the wedding. One of the other groomsmen?s jacket didn?t fit and the girl at Ana?s told him ?oh well you must have gained weight because we measured you right.? Then, the same girl is telling a dad that whoever measured him must have written down the wrong numbers, and he looks right at her and said ?it was you?.

Ana's Bridal Boutique responded with the following comments:

First and For most we always appreciate all our customers and we do everything in our power to make them happy. But Its surprising to me to see your review because you left our store content. Yes we did promise to give you specials on your whole wedding party and thats what we did on your Bridal gown you recieved 10% OFF & FREE ALTERATIONS and you had 5 different fittings just on your wedding gown and you werent charged for a thing. As for Tuxedos was gave the Groom his FREE & Everyone else got 15% OFF their tuxedo rental. For the Bridesmaids they Recieved FREE ALTERATIONS which were floor length we made T-Length also made the gowns fit there body thats what alterations included which is stated at the store and on your paperwork. All Custom work is additional which we were happy to do for you but you didnt want that. As for the Dresses arriving early we are sorry that the company made them 1- 2 days earlier the dresses were ordered on 10-14 they were due to arrive on 1-9 they came in on 1-7. Gowns for bridesmaids usually take 3 to 4 months approx. but we of course are going to call our customers and let them know when the dresses are in our store. As for the payment those terms are stated to the customer at time of purchase and on our contract and stated over the phone when the dresses arrive. So im sorry we have done what we could to make it known and understood. As for the Tuxedos All gentlemen must come in prior to get a base of measurements done to order the tuxedo and when the week of the wedding comes. we recieve the tuxedos and the guys must try them on before leaving with the tux's. At times they fit perfectly but other times their might be some needed alterations. which we do right on site and you can leave with your tuxedos which is normal and harmless. We fixed the tuxedos and the gowns for the wedding to your satisfaction. Im sorry after the wedding you felt different but we can only fix things that is in our control and in our store. We apologize for an inconvience you have felt and we hope you can understand both sides.

My experience at Ana's was a pleasant one. I had seen my dress at a different Bridal shop but wasn't really happy with the service they were providing. Ana offered a discount on my dress and free alterations for me and my bridesmaids if they purchased their dresses from her. She ordered me my dress and my bride�s maid�s dresses and we were extremely satisfied with the level of professionalism. (1 wedding gown, 6 bridesmaid dresses). My mom purchased her dress else where and brought it to Ana's for the alterations, and loved the finished product.

I wanted to purchase 3 flower girls dresses from them to; but after contacting them numerous of times about product (which they were one of the few shops that sold that specific designer in RI, I was told that they no longer sold it. I chose a different dress from another designer but never got a response to my questions or phone calls regarding it. I ended up going to another shop to get the flower girls dresses. what made me upset is that a few weeks later I went to Ana's and the flower girl dress that I wanted to purchase and was told that they no longer sold that designer, was displayed in a mannequin.

After months of searching we ended up getting the suit rentals from Ana's shop (14 suits). The suits looked great. We did have a few issues with sizes once the suits arrived; which made a couple members of the wedding party upset; jackets were either too big or too small or shoe sizes were an issue, and according to them "the service was terrible and the staff was not helpful in fixing a problem that it was caused by the staff after they measured the guys for the suits". But for the most part things were taken care of; it's hard to deal with lots of different personalities. It could have been handled in a better which it would have avoided less problems and arguments between us and the bridal party.

Overall my experience at Ana's was great, my dress was beautiful and the BM's dresses came out great, and even though there were issues with some of the suits, they were very helpful with measurements of members of the wedding party that lived overseas. I even referred a colleague to Ana's and she ended up purchasing her gown from there.

Thanks for everything!!!

I went to Ana�s for my bridesmaid dresses. We were not all that impressed with the service there. I ordered the dresses in April for an August wedding and I was told that they would come in on time with no problem. Three weeks later I received a message from Ana�s saying that each girl would have to pay $20 extra to have the order rushed or else they would not be on time for the wedding. I was frustrated with this fact and when I called back several times to inquire about it no one ever picked up the phone!

Im sorry you felt that way and we appologize if we didnt get back to you to answer your questions. But there is times when gowns have to be rushed based on order time. We do not know if there is a rush fee until we place the order with the company. Gowns normally take 3-4 months to recieve in store. We have no control on the timing of ordering or when the production is finished or started on the gowns. We can only follow rules but if you look back on your contract it does state " rush cuts may be required depending on company and timing of place an order " So all i can do is say sorry if there was any misunderstanding. We do appricate your Business adn hope you had a wonderful wedding.

I wish I knew then what I know now!

I found the prefect dress at an adorable little designer dress boutique in MA, but I decided to purchase it closer to home (Providence) for convenience sake. I called different dress shops, and Anas said that they carry the dress and can offer free alterations because of the high price of the dress. I was sold.
I made appointments to come in for every appointment, but it seemed like my meetings were never written down or expected, so I was always made to wait... so much for convenience.

Unfortunately, my dress was ordered two sizes too big, instead of the standard one size larger, and the dress needed tons of alterations. When the time came at the end, my alterations cost almost $600! They were NOT free, as previously advertised. The alterations were not exceptional. The seams at the sides didn't match up, which is important in the type of dress that I had. And there were big wrinkles on the sides. I asked if they could be steamed out, but I was told that the dress was already steamed and that the wrinkles would come out during wear with my body heat. They didn't.

Naively, I ordered a veil there as well. Turns out that Ana never ordered it, so on the last fitting day, two days before the wedding, I had no veil. Ana suggested another veil for an additional $120 on top of the cost of the veil I originally ordered and paid for in full. I had no choice but to take the new pricier veil and pay the additional cost.

BAD BAD BAD experience all around. I would not recommend the stress!

Ana's Bridal Boutique responded with the following comments:

Its hard to Respond to this Review. We Gave you a discount and not free alterations its on your contract and its clear as day in black and white. Your alteration cost was not even close to 600.00 we have been in business for 12 years and have never once charged any customer that much money on alterations thats simply crazy. Your Total Price for alterations were $250.00 that included your bust, waist, sides, hem, bustle, steam. with unlimited fittings! Your Veil Cost was $120.00 for 1 layer it was your choice to add another veil for $80.00 more. so your total cost was $200.00 for your veil. Your Gown was ordered in a size 8 thats the size according to your measurments. We must order our gowns to your measurements So we are sorry for any Inconvience and Appologize. But we do what was stated on your order form contract and we give you an exact copy also. So Im sorry you felt that way and wish you the best.

It was very difficult to find a dress that fit well, in my budget, and in a style that worked for my body. I tried on at least 100 dresses before I found Ana’s. It took Ana less than 10 minutes to find the perfect dress for me.

After the dress was purchased, I have slightly mixed reviews, but the dress was beautiful and magnificently altered.

Pros: Great selection, reasonable pricing, local shop.
Cons: Very busy fitting area, accepts final payments (50% plus alts) in cash only.

I chose Ana's because of their seamstress. I was really pleased that they were able to match the 20% off that I was offered at another vendor. However, my alterations were not completed at promised (the beading was not taken out from under my arms), yet I was charged full price. Also, they tried to make me order the dress several sizes larger so that it would 'fit for sure'... I know it's likely that I would gain/lose weight, but it seemed to me clearer that they wanted the revenue from tailoring.

I found that the selection of dresses was great but the service and responsiveness was not that great. They had multiple people working on my dress and every time I went back for a fitting they would have to redo something because they last person did it wrong. The dress itself came out amazing but the stress up until then was not worth it.

I was very impresses with Ana's Bridal. They dressed me any my girls from head to toe, even helping with accessories. I highly recommend them, especially if you need a little extra help or guidance.

I SEARCHED EVERYWHERE FOR THE DRESS I HAD TO HAVE. I DID NOT KNOW WHAT IT LOOKED LIKE BUT KNEW EXACTLY WHAT IT WAS SUPPOSED TO LOOK LIKE. I TOLD ANA WHAT I WANTED AND SHE FOUND THE PERFECT DRESS FOR ME. IT WAS ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS AND SHE ADDED THE FINISHING TOUCH OF CAP SLEEVES FOR ME AT A DECENT PRICE. ANA WAS VERY ACCOMMODATING. TOWARDS THE END I WENT TO A TON OF FITTINGS TO MAKE SURE EVERYTHING WAS PERFECT, AND IT WAS! I ACTUALLY BECAME FRIENDLY WITH BOTH ANA AND HER DAUGHTER MICHELLE WHO ALSO ASSISTS IN THE DRESS ALTERATIONS. I DID NOT FEEL LIKE I WAS AT A DRESS SHOP WITH STRANGERS, I FELT LIKE IT WAS AN OLD FAMILY FRIEND DOING EVERYTHING THEY COULD TO MAKE MY DAY PERFECT! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!!!

I cannot even put into words how awful Ana’s bridal is. We had a very bad experience with my best friend who ordered our bridesmaid dresses from here (which is a while story in itself) and I said to myself I would never ever come here again!

A few months later, I got engaged. I found a bridesmaid dress online that I liked and Ana’s was the only bridal shop in the area to carry it. I figured we could go and try the dress on, and if we liked it, we could just buy from another bridal shop. Long story short, when we got there we decided just to order the dresses strictly out of convenience. I thought maybe things would be different this time around. I was wrong. The customer experience (after ordering) was yet again awful. After over 3.5 months of not hearing anything, I called just to check on the status of the dresses. The owner answered and she was so incredibly rude. I asked if she could check on the status of my dresses and she basically just told me no and that they would call me when dresses came in. She never asked for my name, my wedding date, no info at all…. Just told me NO and that they would call me when they came in. It was a very unsettling feeling.

When the dresses came in, 2 of my bridesmaids dresses were too small!! They are both petite and did not gain any weight from when they were measured AND they both ordered the dress size recommended by the girl who measured them. So on top of everything, a couple of my maids had to pay extra from their tailor to let their dress out and borrow fabric from friends dresses to make it work. They also they said we could not pick up our dresses on the weekend and could only go on a weekday. Ridiculous!

I am so angry I gave this bridal shop my business!

The worst service I have ever received anywhere! Ana is a scam artist and her entire entourage is filled with nasty young girls. Evil, the wedding dress experience was miserable!

Everything was lovely. We were a bit surprised at the $250 hemming charge, and thought it should have been mentioned in advance. Ana was very helpful though.
