The dress was so beautiful, it was my dream dress. However, everything was so expensive, I only needed my dress hem and bustled and it was $600! I felt ripped off. I couldn't believe it, and the ribbon they used to tie my bustled broke at the end of the day!!! I was disappointed with some of the service, they rushed me in paying my dress off in full. I wouldn't say I would not recommend the store to anyone, but I would really think about it...

Bella Bridal carries a nice assortment of beautiful gowns (priced around $1000-$3000). While I did find the perfect dress there, I found the experience to be less than stellar. The shopping experience was rushed and lacking in personalization. The alterations process was off-putting. I was quoted $595 for my lace hem. When asked if I could take my dress, I was informed that they would not honor this "alterations deal" if I took my paid-in-full dress home. Unsure that this was truly a deal, I sought out other quotes and happily picked up my dress when a local seamstress quoted me $60 for my hem. Unfortunately, a friend is having similar difficulties with the alterations process at Bella Bridal.

Bella Bridal Gallery responded with the following comments:

We are very sorry that you feel this way about your shopping experience with us, and our alterations quote, but we can assure you that there has to be some kind of misunderstanding. We do our best to be as personable as we can be, and allow our bride the time they need to make their decision, however there are promotional events , such as trunk shows among others, where the brides are encouraged to take advantage of that particular timed promotion.
Even though we are one of the very few bridal shops that still do alteration in house, and our seamstresses are expert in their field, we know, we are very reasonable with our charges, but we also know we are not the cheapest, and as far as the quote you mentioned on your review to be for your lace hem, that is definitely a misunderstanding, what we charge for the lace hem is no where near the figure you mentioned, the figure we quoted you was for a total of 3 fitting sessions which included beside the lace hem a few major alterations to your dress, the bustling of your dress and the press and the steam of your gown, it was. The cost of the dress alteration is based on the extent of work which is influenced by the number of layers, the amount of embellishments, the type of bustle, taking in or letting out, hem and of course the type of fabric. In the past 13 years, 95% of our brides choose to do alterations here and they valued our alteration work.

My time with the women at Bella Bridal was wonderful! The women there were kind and patient. I knew I wanted an Essence of Australia dress, and they were one of only two stores in Michigan who sold them. They shipped a sample of my dress into the store and allowed me to try it one there. It was perfect! Also, their seamstress is meticulous and affordable. I was able to keep my whole look in budget easily.

I had an amazing experience at this bridal shop.

I found a dress online, found the designer and then found local shops that carried the designer. I called all 3 shops and Bella Bridal Gallery was the only shop that offered to call their supplier to see if they could find this specific dress.

It didn't even cross my mind that hunting down a dress was an option outside of having it or not having it in stock.

They gave me a timeframe of when they would be contacting me back. They stayed true to their word and called me a few days later to say YES they found it and could bring it in (at a fee for shipping). I said absolutely.

When my dress came in a few days before my appt they called to let me know it arrived. When I went in for my appt. We decided to pull 4 or 5 other dresses for me to try on before my ordered sample. I tried on some beautiful dresses. But when I tried on the dress they so kindly hunted down for me...I had the moment when I just knew that this was the dress.

The staff was so helpful and complimentary. This is a smaller more intimate boutique which I loved because I never felt overwhelmed. I had a great experience and HIGHLY recommend this bridal shop. They went above and beyond for me.

Unfortunately, I have a similar experience with alterations as a lot of reviewers do. I bought the dress and had a great experience, they measured me suggested a size and I agreed. The dress even came in early. However, the dress was way too big and needed $600 in alterations. I agreed because I didn't know any better and came in for fittings. At first the fittings weren't great, the dress was still way too big and they acted like I was an inconvenience to fix. I wrote a review on a different website and I get an email stating the business was trying to pull down the review. I told the website not to disclose who I was because I was still doing business with them but as I will get to they knew it was me (not happy with that website either). After that review I noticed the owner was there and they were much nicer. I thought everything was going well, I still wanted the corset wider but they assured me it fit correctly and I signed and picked up my dress. On my wedding day several people noticed the dress was too big. I wrote them an email with pictures about how disappointed I was and received a not so nice email back accusing me of defacing their business, wasn't happy about my review, and that the dress was laced up wrong and I was no longer allowed to contact them. They even accused me of telling a bride not to buy a veil there (she asked about mine and I told her I made it and I learned how on Pinterest). I never asked for my money back just told them about my experience. The dress may have not been laced up professionally but a corset shouldn't be touching. I should have fought more for what I wanted, I trusted what they were saying and I signed for the dress so that is my fault however I do not agree with the way they handled it. A good business should want to hear about all of their bride's experiences, good or bad. I just wish I would have seen the other negative reviews before...

Gabriel was a dream to work with! I live in Arizona and ordered my dress from Bella because the price was amazing. The same designer dress was double the price in another store. I was a bit hesitant at first since I was out of state, but Gabriel was absolutely wonderful! Him and his wife were prompt in responding to me, they customized my order and helped me make changes with the designer, and even came in on their day off to accomodate my schedule! I can't say enough how much I would recommend them and their staff. On top of all of that, they carry some of the top designer brands that you can't find anywhere else. I'd give them 10 stars if I could!

The ladies at Bella Bridal were awesome to work with! I ended up buying my dress, veil, shoes, and jewelry there because they made it so easy. They altered my dress and kept it there until the day before the wedding so I never had to worry about it. Everything came in on time and in perfect condition. They are a bit pricey, but in my opinion, I would rather pay more and not have to worry about a thing than cut corners and save a few bucks.

I made an appointment, worked with Ellen, and bought off the rack for 50% off. I went elsewhere for alterations. I had no issues - they stored the dress for me, and had it professionally cleaned and steamed before I picked it up (since it had been a sample). My only gripe is that they seemed a little annoyed at my Bridesmaids for trying on so may dresses, and they made them share a dressing room because they had another appointment coming in (I told them when I scheduled my appt that we were looking for me and my bridesmaids). Nothing major, they didn't mind sharing.

I found shopping for my wedding dress to be very stressful, until I went to Bella Bridal. I felt at ease and comfortable with the bridal consultant. In no way did I feel pressured to purchase a dress form them. She listened to what I wanted and pulled a dress that met all of my qualifications, but was completely different than anything I had tried on before. I absolutely love my dress and I can't wait for my first fitting.
