LOVED april rose designs. It is a very small bridal shop but has soooo much to offer for brides, mother of brides, mother of grooms, maid of honor, brides maids, flower girls...okay, everyone involved in the wedding. The ladies there are so sweet and so nice - this was one part of my wedding where I actually enjoyed talking to the vendors (I guess my wedding dress shop would be a vendor!) because they were so happy and positive. Not your typical big bridal shop where you have fake women who just try to push everything on you and get annoyed if you ask too much of them. They remembered everything about me and called me to update me on a weekly basis....even if they had not been updated by my dress maker, they would call me to tell me that. Their seamstress is not located in their building, she is in Branford, and she is awesome. Such a great woman and she did an awesome job.
OVerall, i loved the women and the store!

I purchased a MOG dress and jewelry after spending two hours in shop. I got home and looked at photos taken of me in the gown and decided it was wrong color and style for me. I called the shop 3 hours later as I was en route to first dress I found in Hartford. The shop owner advised me my dress had been cut in a factory in China. When I reminded her it was the middle of the night in China, she said there is a dormitory of girls at the Watters factory and they wake the girls up when an order is called in! The shop NEVER said all sales are final and would not be flexible on canceling the dress (despite selling me $300 in jewelry and accessories to accompany dress which I was willing to keep). The dress was NOT a custom order but a stock size that would require alterations when it arrived from China. I was so disappointed in the customer service and feel like I was pushed into a sale that I did not want. I would not recommend this dress shop to anyone.

I went to April Rose for my wedding dress. The first time I went there I felt that I was given a little attitude by one of the ladies working there because I did not have an appointment and they were busy, but as soon as she found out I wasn't there to browse and was there to buy my dress she was much more polite, so I had to remove a half a star for this. Diane the owner is wonderful and is so polite and passionate about what she does. I got my dress, belt, veil and jewelry from April Rose and felt so beautiful on my wedding day. My mother-in-law and grandmother-in-law also got their dresses from there, and my husband's cousins got their dresses from her as well. Overall I recommend April Rose to anyone who wants to look and feel their best on their big day!

After scouring the Internet for wedding dresses, I knew I wanted a Watters or a WTOO dress for my wedding. April Rose in Guiford, CT had the best selection of Watters dresses (and a wide selection of hand-made bridal jewelry). The staff was very helpful: they gave suggestions and helped pin/clip the sample dresses, but they also knew when to step back and give my mom, cousin, and I time to talk and think things over before we decided on the one. My mom also found her mother-of-the bride dress there on the same day!

One tip: start shopping early for your wedding dress. The vendors, like Watters, often require months in advance to make and ship your dress.

A wonderful experience - from scheduling on the phone to trying on dresses in store, the ladies at April Rose are so excited to work with you through every step and get you the exact gown you're wishing for. I had such scattered ideas and happened upon a new dress and it was it! They are incredibly helpful, not pushy whatsoever, and supportive! We all cried together when we found the one! A fabulous place to shop and feel welcome.

I found my dream dress at the beautiful April Rose. They were so kind and made me feel special, and my dress was absolutely perfect- I took it off at 4:30am. The price was reasonable and worth it. I had searched many stores but found it at April rose.

While it appears to be a small store on the outside, April Rose had a lot of options when it came to inside. After a disappointing first appointment at David's Bridal, we decided to try April Rose after seeing the commercials. All of the staff was so welcoming and worked their hardest to make me feel special. While some of the gowns are a little more on the pricey side, you can still find beautiful gowns in a lower budget.

I purchased all my bridal accessories from April Rose (headband, veil, earrings, and bracelet). The pieces I bought were handmade by Diane and/or other members of her team, which makes them one-of-a-kind unique pieces. I felt absolutely stunning and the pieces went so beautifully with my gown! When I went to the store to pick out the pieces, Diane and her sister sat me down in front of a mirror and "dressed me up," took pictures for me from all angles so that I could see, and even pinned my hair the way I planned to wear it. All their attention was on me and I felt so valued and special. Anyone can tell they put so much time and care into their work. Even the way the jewelry was packaged and the veil was hung looked delicate and beautiful.

My, mother-in-law, matron-of-honor and flowergirl all purchased their gowns from April Rose. They were absolutely beautiful and we all looked amazing. I highly recommend visiting April Rose for your gown, your bridal party, and your accessories!

The women here are SO nice, they made me feel so gorgeous and excited. The store is pretty small, but there are separate rooms for trying on dresses, which I really liked, it was truly 1 on 1 service. They don't do alterations there, but they partner with someone who does and everything is taken care of for you. If you buy your dress the first day you come in you get 15% off, and then 15% off any jewelry/accessories you buy in the store.
