This shop had Pro-Novias line of wedding dress and no other in Austin has those dresses. The only drawback was that it took longer than expect to receive my dress, cutting it really short before my wedding date.

I bought my wedding gown from Balina. I got an amazing deal, getting the dress I had been dreaming of as a sample for 75% off! Then, I went back and got the most beautiful veil for 75% off! Both were amazing deals and exactly what I wanted.

I have mixed feelings about this salon -- while I ultimately found my dream dress here, it was not an ideal experience.

Jerry (I believe she is the head salesperson) was a difficult woman overall and was not very polite (when talking to her on the phone and in coming back to deal with the dress, she always seemed like she didn't have time to take two seconds to talk to me). I worked with Liz to actually find my dress and she was excellent.

I was disappointed that during my dress search, they did not tell me that the dresses I was trying on were no longer made by the designers, and that I would only be able to purchase a sample gown. When I did end up purchasing a sample gown, I was told that it would be cleaned. When I picked it up after it had been cleaned, it had water stains ALL OVER the entire bottom half of the dress. They were able to remove the stains eventually, but it did cause stress.

I did not have any issues with my veil (which I purchased new from Balina). Overall a mixed experience.

I bought my dream dress here. A beautiful pronovias gown that was made for me!

I went in by myself and the staff was awesome. No pressure or sales pitch. She had great suggestions and brought me a little bit of everything just so I could have a great experience the first time trying on dresses. I found my dress and then brough my family in a few weeks later. They loved it! it was fun, relaxed and again NO pressure.

My dress came in in record time, my dress was 30% cheaper than anywhere else, and the alterations place downstairs was AMAZING at making my dress breathtaking. Highly recommend the experience!

Amelia helped me and she did a wonderful job helping me select gowns that suited me. Balina also accomodated my schedule because I live over four hours away. The shop was never too busy and any of the women working were always very helpful. Without Amelia, I would have never selected my dress, which I adore. I am so grateful for her and her assistance!

I've heard some negative reviews in the past about the staff at Balina, but I never had any trouble. I worked primarily with Amelia, and she was great, even before I decided to purchase my dress from them (which I believe she recommended for me, based on my preferences). Balina kept the dress in their store until it was time for alterations, and they also steamed the dress for free, both before my bridal portraits and before my wedding.

They made me feel as though I was the only one at the store. She recommended other dress that I may like. Also she recommended some tailors and ideas of what I could do to personalize the dress.

My appointment at Balina Bridal was my first wedding dress appointment ever, and the first dress I tried on ended up being "the one"! I tried on several gowns there, but the first one was my favorite (I went to other bridal stores after just to shop around, but came right back to Balina!) The sales woman was very nice each time I went in. They were also really nice and held on to my dress until I took it to the tailors months later. I would recommend Balina Bridal if you're in the Austin area and want to find beautiful, affordable gowns, and get good customer service.

I purchased my wedding dress from Balina Bridal and I would highly recommend them to any bride. After shopping at a couple of other bridal shops in town it was nice to go into a bridal shop that knew their product and was ready to help. I told them what I was looking for and they pulled exactly what I described. The prices are also very reasonable if you have a budget to work with. Once I had alterations done I took the dress back and they steamed it for my wedding. Overall a great experience at Balina!
