I "said yes to the dress" 11 months out and felt pretty good about the dress knowing there were some modifications I wanted to make and was told it would not be a problem. The deposit is 1/2 the total cost, which was paid at the time of purchase. When I went in for my first fitting my appointment had not been written down and they were not ready for me. I'm 5'10 and even though I specifically asked for a long dress to be ordered the length was regular; not only did this mean the shoes I had purchased to wear had to be ditched but a layer of crinoline had to be cut out to take out some volume so the skirt would hit the ground in my flats - this mistake was never acknowledged. Also, before I said yes I asked about switching out the sash that came with the dress - now I realize a sash may not sound like a big deal but I'm plus size and the sash the dress comes with has bling all the way around the waist, not flattering at all! Switching out the sash was a condition of saying yes to the dress, I had plenty of time after all. I was told this would not be a problem and no mention of additional cost was given at the time the dress was ordered. Once I had my fitting a few months before the wedding, and when I was basically stuck with the dress I was told it would be $350 for the sash I wanted which is funny because there was no sash as part of my 1/2 deposit. The owner called and said she would give a credit for the sash I didn't want so the new sash would only be $250; this bait and switch was a real turn off, I'm very lucky that this was not a financial burden but to a lot of brides a surprise $250 would hurt - for me it was the principle of feeling mislead when I bought the dress. I feel like Ms Ballew really did try to make me happy but the feeling of being tricked into saying yes to a dress and being pissed I didn't get to wear the gorgeous (and expensive) Kate spade heels I purchased really soured the experience and I got less excited about my dress everytime I saw it

Everytime I walked into this bridal boutique, I felt like a princess. First, I love the fact that the prom/bridemaid dresses are sectioned off from the bridal dresses. There are separate dressing areas for each. Second, there is classical/piano music playing in the background. Third, my stylist was extremely personal at helping me choose my perfect dress and was amazing at her job. I could not be happier with our purchase and experience with Ballew bridal. I had my dress bustled and alterations were around $200, but it looked amazing!

If you're looking for a personal stylist and calming experience, go here on a weekday around 11 or so. Go when it is less crowded so that you can get the full experience and concentrate on what you truly like. Have a budget in mind, but also know that they might show you a dress a little over budget and you might say yes. Have room for that because this is your once in a life-time dress and memory.

We went to Ballews after first trying the Lowes Bridal in Arkansas and having a bad experience. Ballews was a complete 180.....the sales lady was very attentive and really listened to what I was looking for and helped me to find the exact dress I was looking for! Their shop closed at 6 p.m., but they stayed with us until nearly 8 p.m. helping us to find the perfect dress at a much better price than what we found at Lowes. Would highly recommend Ballews to any bride!

Ballew Bridal is where I bought my wedding dress and bridesmaid dresses. All of the workers there are very friendly. They were very helpful when it came to listening to what I liked and didn't like. I had a great experience dress shopping with them!

Everyone at Ballew was wonderful to work with from start to finish. Mrs. Ballew is truly a magician with dress alterations. She spent so much time with us at each fitting and worked tirelessly until every detail was perfect. My dress was gorgeous and felt like it had been custom made by the time she was finished!

I absolutely loved my dress. However, I had to come back in to get the same problem fixed with my dress several times. Every time they spent time on looking at the issue, but when a bride is stressed she just wants her dress to work out perfectly. Overall, I really enjoyed their services. They have a lot of gowns to chose from.

I bought my wedding gown from Ballew 2, which is Ballew's overstock store. My experience with them was great. When I bought the dress, there was a small rip in the skirt. Ms. Ballew fixed it and steam cleaned the gown at no extra cost before I picked it up. When it was time for my fittings, I saw Ms. Ballew at the regular Ballew location and also had a positive experience. The prices she charged for alterations were reasonable, the work was done well, and the timeframe for completing the work was pretty short. On the day of my wedding, the gown was gorgeous!
