After going to multiple dress stores to find my dress, I made an appointment with Andrea's based upon the referral of a friend who had gone there before. I only wish it was the first place I went to because their dresses went outside the box, as I was looking for something more than just your run-of-the-mill strapless dress. I found the perfect dress with the help of the owner who was wonderful to work with. I would recommend Andrea's to any and everyone!

My consultant was so nice and comfortable to work with. I found a beautiful allure gown and ordered it. If was supposed to take 2+months but came in less than a month! Although my weight had not changed since my measurements were taken the dress was extremely tight. Fortunately I had plenty of time to exercise and diet and all worked our beautifully with the dress. I'm not sure if it was due to my body changing, each designer having different sizing, or measurement error but so thankful I had time. Overall had a great experience here.

AMAZING experience. Everyone was beyond nice - no one rushed us or was pushy (like other places) and they understood was a special experience this was for me, as the bride, and my family. They are friendly, flexible, affordable and have any/all style of dress you're looking for. Have recommended them to all my friends and family because they have so much of a selection for brides (dress and accessories), bridesmaids, mother of the bride, flower girls, etc.

I worked with Julia - the owner - who was by far the best consultant I've worked with (and way better than anything you see on TV). She was so much fun and I know my experience wouldn't have been as wonderful without her.

I absolutely LOVED my experience at Andrea's.

I had originally popped by on my way home from work to make an appointment to get an idea of dress prices as I started what I thought would be an arduous search. On the day of the appointment, I showed up alone since my closest family and friends live out of state. I was positive, but not seriously thinking I would find what I was looking for on day one. That is when I met the lovely Ashley.

We hit it off immediately. She was bright, cheerful, and understood just what I was looking for. We wound up pulling four dresses. I fell smitten with the second dress. It was perfect. I stood there, looking into the mirror, making my final decision and it was a great and overwhelming feeling. Ashely looked at my reflection, then glanced around the empty room and blurted out, "Oh! I just want to be enough for you right now!" I think with anyone else it would have been a sort of bittersweet, standing in a wedding dress, in an empty store with a stranger. It was the opposite. Ashley was fabulous and made me feel at ease. Sure, nothing about the experience was how someone might dream up their dress fitting, but it was perfect for me. It was a quiet celebration between two happy people.

A few days later, my mom came up and we bought the dress after another fitting with Ashley. Mom cried and now we were three happy people. Weeks later, my Man-of-Honor came up and three happy people turned into four. Thank you Andrea's for spreading a lot of joy throughout my wedding experience and thank you Ashley for being an important person during that experience and for being plenty more than "enough."

I can't say enough good things about Andrea's Bridal. I really wanted to get my wedding dress in Maine, even though I got married in Charlottesville, VA, because my family is from Maine. With that, Andrea's bridal was the first store I went to. I was lucky enough to be matched to Ashley, who was the fantastic employee who not only understood me (even though I gave little detail!), but managed to pick out my dress with 1 try! Yes...I bought the first dress she pointed out and I tried on (and I'm a very calculated, non-spontaneous person!). I tried on a number of other dresses, but went right back to the first one. In addition, Ashley was just so great. She was so sweet and accommodating, and the business overall was just fantastic. Through every step - trying on the dress, purchasing the dress, suggesting where to get it altered, steaming, packaging, etc. - they were very accommodating and a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend Andrea's Bridal!

And to the Andrea's Bridal team (especially Ashley) - thank you so much for making my day so special!

I met with Jill and she was amazing!!! I had so much fun and tried 10-15 dresses. Number 2 was THE ONE! Jill was so patient and awesome. She let me try on all the dresses I wanted and made me feel like I was the only bride there. It was such a great experience. I feel like I could have chosen any of the dresses she showed me. They were all beautiful. I will tell everyone to go here first - and I live in New Hampshire.

I can't even begin to express my gratitude to Ashley at Andrea's Bridal. I went into my first dress appointment having no idea what I wanted, yet through her overall nature, she made me feel comfortable and excited about the experience. In just answering a few questions, she was able to pick out the PERFECT dress on the first try! Yep, I bought the first dress I tried on! She's fantastic and the overall shop was stellar. I highly recommend! A big thanks to Ashley and Andrea's team!

I had a pretty terrible experience at David's Bridal and another local store, and went into Andrea's Bridal with pretty low expectations. I just figured that I'd be a bride who didn't have the "This is the one!" moment. I couldn't have been more wrong. Julia actually LISTENED to me and brought me dresses to try on that fit the description I gave her- she stayed in my budget and was HONEST about how things looked and fit. When I had the "this is the one" moment, I almost cried. My dress was beautiful and during my entire wedding people complimented it. Everyone at Andrea's is kind and helpful, but working with Julia was especially great. So happy to have found my dress at a local store, too!!!! Means just that much more to me!!!

My first experience looking for a dress was disappointing. So when I arrived with my mom to Andrea's - I had that experience that every girl dreams of. The choices of dresses seemed unlimited and Julie brought me every possible dress that she could have. I ended up with Maggie Sottero's "Geneva." I wish I could do it all over again.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Andrea's Bridal. I went to several bridal shops in Maine and New Hampshire looking for my wedding dress, from higher end shops down to the big box chain store. I was looking for something unique without spending thousands of dollars (I wanted a dress that was silver--not white or ivory!), and most other stores flat out didn't give me any options. One store showed me one dress that they could order in silver, every other store (I went to a total of 6 places) told me that they didn't have anything like what I wanted and tried to convince me that I should just go with white. One consultant even laughed at my request and had me try on a bunch of dresses that were the exact opposite of what I wanted. Andrea's was not only highly professional, but I was able to try on several dresses that I could order in silver or other colors. I never felt rushed any of the times I was in, and it felt like I was actually cared for as a person, rather than as just another sale. I wasn't pushed to try on dresses that I hated or to spend outside of my budget. The consultants and the owner were all excited to help me find my dress. They special ordered in a sample dress for me to try on that they didn't have in stock that I had seen online and was in love with. I ended up ordering the dress in silver, after trying it on in ivory, and it is absolutely gorgeous--much more beautiful to me than the ivory version. I cannot wait to wear this dress when I get married this summer! I would highly recommend Andrea's Bridal to anyone!

The first time I went to Andrea's Bridal I didn't have an appointment. I was there with my Mom and MOH. They were remodeling and were taking appointments only. At first I was super bummed but Julia was amazing and let us look around upstairs at the dresses. While I couldn't try them on I saw the amazing quality and made the next available appointment. Every step of the way has been amazing! I recommended them to a bm and she just bought her dress there too. While I still have my final fitting and one last time to go into Andrea's I am more than confident about the great work they do and care they give to each bride!

I can not say enough about Julia and her amazing team at Andrea's Bridal. Dress shopping was actually something I was NOT looking forward to so I emailed Julia ahead of time and let her know what I was looking for. She was so responsive and helpful that I actually was looking forward to dress shopping by the time of my appointment. Julia is a true professional- she put me at ease immediately. My dress was gorgeous and affordable. My bridesmaids also picked their dresses there which were gorgeous and affordable and I really enjoyed going in to pick them up each time a new one came in because the staff really are so excited for the brides that it just lifts you up to go in and chat with them. Also it was extremely helpful that they have evening hours on Thursdays so that I didn't have to rearrange my work schedule to get there. I could go on and on about Andrea's. I will really miss the staff there and am hoping for excuses to visit in the future!

I worked with Ashley to find my perfect wedding dress. Ashley knew exactly what I was looking for and quickly became very comfortable with me, my mom, and the rest of my wedding party. She was funny, friendly, and able to answers any questions I had regarding my attire. Our experience with her was very personal and it was so nice to have someone who knew me and remembered my preferences during the process.

As for the dress, I fell in love with it at first sight. The quality of the dress was amazing and the price very reasonable. Once I stepped into the dresses at Andrea's, I couldn't look anywhere else because they just didn't compare.

I found a picture online of a beautiful gown that I loved but was completely out of my price range. After explaining that I had convinced my fiancee that I could find a dress I loved for less than $500 they told me about a sample sale they were having. The business had just changed hands and they were getting rid of all of their old samples. Knowing that I was on a budget, it was a very nice gesture that they offered. Of course, a sample sale was complete and utter chaos and my shopping anxiety certainly got the best of me, but my maid of honor talked me into buying the PERFECT Maggie Sottero at a whopping 70% off. I thought it was so kind and so amazing of them to inform me of their one day sale- as opposed to trying to force me into a dress that I would fall in love with and wouldn't be able to afford. The old owner used to rip tags, so unfortunately I had a name brand gown that had taken a sufficient hit in value. When I called them and asked about the tags they told me that they didn't have any of the tags left but they were happy to offer me a Maggie Sottero certificate of authenticity. I love, love, love my Elaine by Maggie- and my husband loved it, too. They were spectacular to work with.

I find it hard to image anyone having anything but great things to say about Julia and the staff at Andrea's Bridal. In contrast with a lot of other bridal shops out there, Julia and her team are incredibly friendly, work really hard to help cater to the individual customer, and provide excellent customer service in a low-key yet very professional way. Julia was so in tune with my description of what I was looking for, and responsive to my reactions to each dress, that we found the perfect gown within an hour. We also ended up buying the Mother of the Bride, bridesmaids and flower girl dresses there, which were very reasonably priced but gorgeous. Julia does an amazing job of remaining friendly, respectful, and maintaining grace despite the sometimes less than professional behavior of other customers in the shop (and in my case a somewhat high maintenance bridesmaid). She may have some young staff (I'm assuming these are the staff who the woman from an earlier review unfairly referred to as "high schoolers"), but they are incredibly professional and friendly and were always very helpful to me and my bridal party. Ashley in particular was a great help. I had complete confidence in knowing Julia and Ashley had everything taken care of, and they did a great job with everything. Julia does a great job and really cares about providing customers with great options at all different price points, and providing each customer with a positive and memorable dress shopping experience. I could not more highly recommend Julia and the staff at Andrea's Bridal! Whether you're from Portland area or not (I am from Boston and the distance was well worth it), you really can't go wrong with Andrea's Bridal. Thank you Julia!!

I find it hard to image anyone having anything but great things to say about Julia and the staff at Andrea's Bridal. In contrast with a lot of other bridal shops out there, Julia and her team are incredibly friendly, work really hard to help cater to the individual customer, and provide excellent customer service in a low-key yet very professional way. Julia was so in tune with my description of what I was looking for, and responsive to my reactions to each dress, that we found the perfect gown within an hour.

Andrea's Bridal was fantastic to me! Ashley was the salesgirl that I worked with through the whole process. She knew exactly what I was looking for and every dress I tried on just got better and better. She saved the best for last and it was the one. I absolutely loved her! If I ever needed to come by without an appointment, they were always helpful and accommodating with my requests. My two bridesmaids and flower girls dresses also came from Andrea's and the process of picking them out and getting them in was a piece of cake. My own dress came in quickly and they called me right away to let me come in for the fitting. They dropped off and picked up my dress from the tailor across the street, and had it steamed and waiting for me the day before my wedding. They gave me great instruction on how to handle the dress so it wouldn't wrinkle etc. I highly recommend them to everyone. One of my best friends got her dress from their shortly after I got married. I went with her to her appointments and they treated her wonderfully as well.
Thank you Ashley and everyone else at Andrea's for helping me find the dress of my dreams!

Hi April! Thank you so much for the amazing review! I know Ashley really enjoyed working with you as well. It was always great seeing you in the store. You were so laid back ... it's nice to see a bride who is getting married for the right reasons and doesn't sweat the small stuff :-) Thank you again!

I had a great experience at Andrea's Bridal and would definitely recommend it to other brides. I was not looking for the mall experience and knew right away that a place like Andrea's had the small and personable environment (without being snobby) I was looking for. The first time I went in to the store, I didn't have an appt and just wanted to get a feel for what was out there. I knew that I wanted a more simple bridesmaids dress for me, and I only had 2 months, and Julia, the owner, welcomed me and asked me what I was looking for. Since she was working with a customer, she told me to feel free to try on dresses myself, but that they could definitely find something in the time I had, and I could make an appt to come back.

I worked primarily with Ashley, but Julia remembered me each time I went in and knew where I was at each step in the process. I had a little trouble with the sizing (my dress ended up being too small and needed to be taken out about 3 inches, and my petticoat was also too small and it took 3 orders before I finally got the right one), and at the end, Julia didn't charge me for the final repeat shipping cost that I would have had to pay.

I had my wedding in Maine, but had moved out of state to New York 6 months before the wedding occurred. I needed to find someone to press my wedding dress when I got back to Maine for the wedding, and called Andrea's because I had had a very good experience trying gowns on in their store (I did not buy the dress from Andrea's, though).

I was arriving the Wednesday before the wedding, and Henrietta, who I spoke with about this about a month in advance, said that she could have the dress ready by Friday afternoon if I dropped it off by Thursday afternoon. When I got there on Wednesday around noon, they told me I'd need to pay a rush fee, but as soon as I said Henrietta hadn't indicated that was the case, they agreed and did not charge me the rush fee.

Friday morning, I called to let them know that my maid of honor would pick up the dress, and they told me that the dress had already been pressed and I could pick it up then! I was in town having my nails done, so I went over, picked it up, and they had done a beautiful job.

I actually chose my bridal dress at another location as I was looking for something more unique and natural. I chose this vendor as they offered the Alfred Angelo line. I had all of my bridesmaids choose whatever dress style they wanted that looked good with their body style, as long as they got it in my wedding colors - lettuce green with a robin's egg blue sash. My wedding colors were natural - ivory white, light green, and light blue. Andrea offered so many options in the Alfred Angelo line that the bridesmaids were all able to try on several different styles until they found the style that fit them. Once they placed the orders, Andrea's would say that the dress would be in in about a month, but then arrive only two weeks later. Andrea's staff did a great job - they were very friendly and helpful in grabbing different dresses after my bridesmaids tried to explain the style they were looking for. (i.e. One had large breasts, so she wanted a strap around the neck, and not a strapless dress). Andrea's also was very reasonably-priced and I am so satisfied with them. All of my bridesmaids looked beautiful! Thank you, Andrea's!

These ladies were fantastic!! I was one of the new brides to come in after it was bought by a new owner, Julie.

I had the best experience going there. I had been to David's bridal many times before for other friends weddings, and it was never really a good experience. But at Andrea's Bridal, it was personable, they spend as much time on you as you need. Everything I order always came in early. They gave me great suggestions on where to buy shoes and have them dyed through them, those came out phenomenal!

My dress was gorgeous and resonably priced. They even accommodated my HUGE entourage that came with me to pick out my final dress. They reccommended a seamstress who was also great to work with.

I can't say enough good things about them, if I ever have to get married again, I'm sooo going back there ;) I just wish I had more people that lived near here to reccommend them to Andrea's Bridal

I had the best experience buying my wedding dress at Andreas. The consultant that I first worked with was great, she pulled dresses that exactly matched the style that I requested and I ended up finding the PERFECT dress early in the process. The shop changed ownership a couple months later and the service remained excellent. The girls at Andrea's helped me find an amazing seamstress, pick out the perfect bridesmaid dresses, and I was able to purchase ALL my accessories here as well (shoes, flower for my hair, veil, spanx, you name it!)
I had been to other Bridal shops in Maine & NH but they were either too crowded or too snotty. Andrea's made me feel absolutely comfortable and best of all, it was compeletely affordable ;-)

I bought my gown and all of my bridesmaids gowns at Andrea's and had a wonderful experience. My gown was stunning. It was pricey, but was a beautiful top quality gown, you definitely get what you pay for when it comes to bridal. I had also visited 2 other stores, Pat Buck and Davids. Pat Buck was filthy and I would not purchase anything there. Davids had cheap gowns that felt like plastic.

Andrea's is a beautiful store with helpful professional staff and prices that are equal to the quality, so not the cheapest, but who wants cheap for your special day? I also had top quality service from the seamstress and all the staff there, especially the owner of the store. I would highly reccomend Andrea's Brial to anyone, I felt like a Queen!!!

I walked in to Andrea's with a picture in my head of what I wanted. Our salesperson (Ashley) let me pick a few out, but also picked a few out herself that were the opposite of what I wanted. Quickly we had pushed mine aside and found the perfect dress out of her pile. She really knows what she is talking about and was very friendly and helpful through the process.

I had purchased Bridesmaid dresses at Andrea's in the past so after shopping for my wedding dress all over the country (while visiting friends, family, etc.), I finally tried Andrea's. The major difference between Andrea's and the other shops that I had visited were the Bridal Consultants. So many Bridal Consultants are afraid to impart any opinion at all and my experiences felt so stale and disconnected. Not at Andrea's. I had a good idea of the style I wanted, but am very analytical and wanted to be sure I wasn’t ruling anything out. The Bridal Consultant was patient and understanding. She made style suggestions based on my body type and helped narrow down my choices in a no-nonsense way ("between #1 and #3, which do you prefer? Okay, #1 is OUT"). In making such a big and difficult decision I appreciated that the Bridal Consultants at Andrea's were able to read my face and body posture, share their own opinions, and nudge me toward making a decision. After trying so many dresses, I had given up on my “Say Yes to the Dress” moment, but when I finally put on my wedding dress, there was no hiding that it was, The One. Not for me or the Bridal Consultant. I highly recommend Andrea's. The only reason I knocked a half star off for Quality of Service was due to a shipping snafu, which was remedied quickly.

I have an absolutely wonderful experience with Andrea's Bridal! I worked with over five different staff members over the course of the year that I planned my wedding and everyone there (including the owner!) was extremely helpful, patient, enthusiastic, and kind! They even saved the day when one of my bridesmaids had an alterations mishap with another seamstress just a few days before the wedding. The seamstress made her dress a priority and got it fixed and we didn't even purchase the bridesmaids dresses from there. They were wonderful and I would recommend Andrea's to anyone!

The reason I took half a star off the professionalism catagory was because the seamstress made a change on one of the bridesmaids dresses without permission from me or the bridesmaid. Her alteration ended up being for the better but I think she should have asked one of us first. Again, the dress looked fabulous in the end!

The girls at Andrea's Bridal were amazing. I told them what I was thinking of for a dress and they immediately found the dress I ended up purchasing. They let me peruse through the racks with them and directed me toward anything in my price range that they thought would look good on me. They made me feel so comfortable. They only allow one bride at a time to be around the dresses so there is no worry of another bride having a dress in her room that you will never get to see. It is really a one-on-one experience. They were great and I would highly-recommend Andrea's for brides with any budget.

I was so happy to find Andrea's bridal! I had been to a few other bridal shops and I found the people there to either be 1)complete snobs or 2)way to cheesy for my taste. I think it was Karen that helped me find my dress and she was just so wonderful. She listened to what I wanted and was realistic about her selections. So helpful! The only complaint I had was I got some calls that things had come in that I had already picked up (this happened twice) which was a little weird. I think the veil was a little pricey too, though I don't have much to compare it to. But overall, I had been so frustrated dress shopping and they really made a difference for me. I would happily recommend them.

I was one of the first of many friends and a sister to get married over the past couple of years. I bought my dress at Andrea's, after checking out several other local options and was extremely pleased with the service and affordability. I loved the whole experience at Andrea's...truly felt like a princess when you tried on dresses there. I worked with both Julia and Karen (the owner) during my fittings and loved them both. I felt like they provided totally honest opinions and worked with me to find the perfect dress (even after I had almost ordered a dress that I would not have been happy with).
I recommended Andrea's to my many friends and sister...all of them bought their dresses there! You just can't go wrong with the selection and afforability.
I couldn't give Andrea's 5 stars for responsiveness, only because there were a few issues with things coming in on time...for me, my sister, and my sister-in-law. Even though the wedding date might be months away, you still expect to see your dress after 4-6 months. There have been a couple of us who have had to wait a little too long for the shipment of our dresses and that got a tad stressful, although Karen was always calm and professional about it.
I would highly recommend Andrea's for any bride or bridesmaid. It is a very good experience overall and the girls who work there are fabulous.

I was one of the first of many friends and a sister to get married over the past couple of years. I bought my dress at Andrea's, after checking out several other local options and was extremely pleased with the service and affordability. I loved the whole experience at Andrea's...truly felt like a princess when you tried on dresses there. I worked with both Julia and Karen (the owner) during my fittings and loved them both. I felt like they provided totally honest opinions and worked with me to find the perfect dress (even after I had almost ordered a dress that I would not have been happy with).
I recommended Andrea's to my many friends and sister...all of them bought their dresses there! You just can't go wrong with the selection and afforability.
I couldn't give Andrea's 5 stars for responsiveness, only because there were a few issues with things coming in on time...for me, my sister, and my sister-in-law. Even though the wedding date might be months away, you still expect to see your dress after 4-6 months. There have been a couple of us who have had to wait a little too long for the shipment of our dresses and that got a tad stressful, although Karen was always calm and professional about it.

They were extremely helpful and were able to get me in for a dress fitting one the same day that I called. I was able to get rush delivery for my wedding that would be occurring in six months. They also provide you with your own time for dressing fitting so you get the personal one on one feeling. They offered free steaming after my dress was altered. The only down side is that it can be a bit more than the average bridal shop...aka David's bridal and they don't have a seamstress but they have great recommendations for who to take it to.

Andrea's Bridal offers the best (maybe the only) selection of boutique bridal gowns in the greater Portland area. I was treated like a princess throughout the entire dress shopping process. I can't say enough great things about them. My only issue was that the seamstress works odd hours and it was difficult for me to make arrangements for my fittings. Not a show stopper, but I did have to leave work early a few times. I tried David's Bridal too, and trust me, my experience at Andrea's is the way wedding dress shopping should be!

I tried on dressed at Andreas Bridal and found the staff to be very attentive and helpful. I had just came from a bridal shop that offered no privacy and was relieved to try dresses on at Andreas. The selection was good and they often offer promotions.

I actually ended up buying a sample dress as Andrea's. They have quite an extensive amount of sample dresses that are a rather good deal. I did find however that I spent a lot on my veil and other pieces. They also do not currently do alterations, but are very helpful in recommending some people who do. I found my experience there to be very nice and very catered to me. You do need to make an appointment, but it is well worth the visit.

My bridesmaids and I went to Andrea's to pick and purchase the dresses. They happily accommodated our group and remained patient with us, dress after dress. Andrea's carries styles every similar to the JCrew chiffon dresses - and they are constructed better and cut in a more flattering way.

Though the store offered top of the line gowns for you and your bridal party, the prices were over the top and the attitude poor. Thoughsome of the employees were very sweet, the ones furthur up the hierarchy were rude and disrespectful (i.e. the seamstress asst manager and even the owner!)

I found a picture of my dream gown online and they were the only store that carried it. My initial experience was grand and enjoyable so I ordered throug them and talked my girls to look for a gown there. Usually, a bridal store will offer some sort of a discount for having both you and you bridesmaids sales through them. They did not. They did how ever make my slightly heavier girls feel abused by practically telling them "We don't serve fat girls" and charging them hundreds of dollars for extra material. They were a womens size 12 and 16. They are nearly 6 feet tall and not at all fat, but rather busty and curvy.

I was presured into decisions I didn't agree with, but if I tried to protest politely, I was made to feel like a "Bridezilla" and I can garuntee I am not a person who deals with confrontation well so paid the extra fees and then begged my grandmother to alter what they did to my dress. The bustle that cost me 200 dollars was nothing more than a few buttons that under the weight of the beading ripped my dress fabric and broke before I even walked down the aisle. They didn't even trim off all the strings that remained from the manufacturer that they assured me they wold tim off before I received my dress for my big day. It was added stress that I did not need, nor did my girls as the extra fees piled on each time we went.

Two of the salespeople that helped with my dress shopping at Andrea's were very pleasant to deal with. However, the first salesperson I met with was rude, insisted I order a dress that was 2 sizes too big ("in case") and didn't return phone calls.
This is the only high-end bridal salon in Portland, and the dress selection is beautiful.
