Andrea's was one of my first choices for trying on dresses, and I was not disappointed. They're very popular and their appointment times fill up fast, so book well in advance so the day you're planning on going is available. All the staff I interacted with were incredibly friendly and helpful, and I was able to find my dress that first visit! I told the attendant what I had in mind and what styles I liked, and she came back with some awesome dresses and a few that she thought would look good. She was so helpful! I had been to a few other places in the Portland area before but no luck. Andrea's has a great selection and are reasonable price-wise; I lucked out and they had the dress that I wanted in a size that fit with a few modifications, so I was able to buy the sample and save serious money, and they stored it on site til I was ready to pick it up. The only thing that was a bit disappointing is that they don't do alterations in house, but I found my seamstress from off their list of recommendations and she was PHENOMENAL, so all in all it worked out. I have quite a few friends who just got engaged so I've been recommending Andrea's to them for sure.

I was very apprehensive about Andrea's. The storefront is not the most attractive and the location in Portland's downtown is also not the most appealing. It turns out that the place I had the least hope for was the only bridal boutique that carried the line I so wanted to try on at BHLDN. I spent more than I budgeted, but I found the perfect dress. My wedding was pushed back by a few months and they were able to sell me the floor sample, which I so appreciated, and rush order by top. After going to the tailor however, the skirt would have cost about $500 to take in properly, which I couldn't afford, so I had it taken in on the sides. I assume that the staff who helped me lack alterations knowledge, or else they would have warned me of that. Also, I wish I hadn't of, but I searched for my skirt online and found it brand new 50% off the (stained and slightly ripped) sample price, the day after I paid for it. Hard lesson. Nonetheless, I had an amazing experience, their sales people were on top of every detail and it all worked out beautifully :-)

Jill was the absolute best helping pick out my dress. Everyone at Andrea's is so friendly and helpful and all of their dresses are so beautiful! When my dress came in there was a slight pull that I would probably not have even noticed, but they immediately contacted the dress maker and had a brand new dress for me in a few weeks! I tell all my engaged friends that they have to come here for their dress!

I had a wonderful experience at Andrea's Bridal. The staff is knowledgable and professionalWith showing a few photos about what i liked and didn't like, they were able to pull me the most perfect dress! I actually ended up buying a sample off the rack! Julia and Jill have been by my side the entire wedding planning process! We ended up back at andreas to get my girls bridesmaids dresses we had quite the range of body types and each girls looked amazing and felt amazing in their dress!
About 2.5 months before my wedding is where i couldn't have asked for more from them. My MOH decided to no longer be a part of the wedding, and i ended up in the store in tears worried i wouldn't be able to get another dress for someone else stepping in. After crying my eyes out and listening to the situation, julia looked at me with the most calming face and said "there are some things i can't fix, and this isn't one of them". They ended up getting my girl a dress with 2 weeks to spare (in which she was able to get altered) and they were able to make this all happen with her being in boston and never once coming to the store! Everyone kept me in the loop with timing and were honestly amazing. Then, about 3 weeks before the wedding the seamstress ruined my moms dress. Julia went with my mom to the seamstress (on her day off never the less) to stand up for my mom and see the mess of the dress. Julia then let my mom go to the store and take any dress she wanted to replace the one that was ruined (since there wasn't enough time to order another). To make matter worse, 7 days before the wedding the seamstress had issues with my dress. She met us again at andreas 6 days before the wedding and long story short was very unprofessional and left me with an un finished dress. Julia went above and beyond and found someone else to finish my dress. This shouldn't have been her responsibility or problem but she went above and beyond. Andreas bridal is all around amazing!

Andreas did a great job helping me find my wedding dress! I wasn't exactly sure what I was looking for, but they convinced me to try on a dress I didn't think I would like and it ended up being the one! I had previously tried on dresses at a few other stores and this was the best experience by far. I was planning my wedding from North Carolina, so I wasn't able to do things (alterations, steam pressing, etc.) right on schedule but they were super flexible and got everything done on time so I didn't have to stress at all! Everyone who works there is very nice and helpful - I would highly recommend looking for your wedding dress at Andreas!

I had a wonderful experience at Andrea's. They had a beautiful selection of dresses. The appointment was relaxed with no pressure and my consultant Amy helped me pick the dress I just love! Jen helped me order the dress with lots of time to spare. I was able to get a truck show price the weekend after I picked the dress because I was traveling from out of town. I just picked up my dress this past weekend and my appointment was amazing. My dress fit like a glove. The bridal experience was perfect from start to finish. Thank you Andrea's!

I was a bit nervous because I've had friends who were sold hard during their bridal appointments. Andrea's was very professional and helpful. They also didn't waste time. They listened to my needs and wants. I did not feel pressured into anything nor was offered any "special discounts if I bought before I left the appointment." I did end up buying, but it was my choice. They gave me a very helpful list of alteration vendors in the area and clearly spelled out the timeline of fittings and when my dress would come in.

I had an amazing experience at Andrea's bridal. It was my first day dress shopping. I am a size 16W. I was not planning on finding a dress that day. I was worried about not feeling comfortable with my body during this process but my experience was quite the opposite. My consultant Amy was amazing, she made me feel comfortable from the get go. She pulled some beautiful dresses for me to try. My wedding was only 4 months away when I went in, so we were limited to dresses we could get quickly or buy off the rack. The first dress she put on me looked beautiful. I tried a coupled more on that weren't it. Then she brought out THE ONE. It was not what I imagined but it was perfect. It fit me perfectly, it was for sale off the rack, it was 50% off, and I felt absolutely amazing in it. I had my bridal moment. I cannot recommend Andrea's highly enough.

I went and tried on dresses at Andrea's bridal with Amy. She was super nice and helpful. She pulled everything that I wanted and helped me eliminate a few styles I thought I would like. Unfortunately I only found one dressed I liked because we spent a lot of time doing eliminations and trying to get the dresses on me. I ended up going back to another bridal shop to try on one that I had worn earlier in the day and ended up with that one.

The experience here can't be beat in the area. Super nice sitting area for family and friends, helpful and friendly associates. I would recommend everyone stop here to look for their wedding gown!
