Stay away! I purchased my wedding gown here on March 26th, 2016 but I seriously regret it and strongly encourage you to take your business elsewhere. I purchased a "discounted" Aire Barcelona dress during a "trunk show" but now know that I was seriously overcharged!!
I was pressured into buying the dress the day of the trunk show because I was told that I was receiving almost $500 in discounts which were good only that day. The bridal consultant told me the initial price of the dress was $3,295 but that I would get 10% off because it was part of the trunk show bringing the price down to $2,965 and then they offered "match" the 10% discount and take another $200 off (which is not 10% btw) making the sale price $2,795. I later learned that the $200 discount is also offered if you purchase a dress the first day you come to their store.
I was under the impression that if I didn't buy the dress from them that day it would cost me over $500 to buy it later. Little did I know that the initial quote they gave me was $1,000 over the retail price and that the "discounted" price I paid was still $400 more than the price of the dress at other bridal salons.
Here are the facts: The dress I purchased was the Amelie 2015 Aire Barcelona dress in natural size 36 and the purchase price at Bella Bridal was $2,795. After $167.90 sales tax the total was $2,962.90. They require a 60% non-refundable deposit to place the order so I paid $1,800 the day I ordered the dress.
I later found the same dress at Kotsovos Bridal in Cincinnati for $2,363 and at Mira Couture in Chicago for $2,365. At Bella Bridal it was $3,295! Discounted to the final price of $2,795. I feel so taken advantage of...I tried to renegotiated the price of the dress with them and even cancel my order but they would not work with me. You also might want to know that when I picked up my dress in September they told me that alterations start at $750!

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.

In a word? They're WONDERFUL! I just about lost all hope after my first experience in a bridal dress shop. I left that appointment feeling absolutely down on my luck, and relatively convinced, I was never going to find my dream dress (if it even existed at all). So... I went into Bella Bridal, holding my breath, and I couldn't be any more thrilled with the outcome.

They not only feel like family there, they treat you like family. My consultant was excellent, but their entire staff pitched in, offering comments and suggestions. It really felt like I was with all my best girlfriends trying on clothes, when in reality, I didn't know a single one of them.

The owner was actually the one to pick out my dress. She brought it to me when I was flipping through the racks, and (on the hanger) I wasn't convinced, but relented, wanting to please her. She insisted it be the first dress I try on, and I'm so glad it was! I instantly fell in love. Nothing else compared. All the other employees came out, and ooh'd and ahh'd, and offered their suggestions on other things I could do to personalize the dress. I just couldn't (and still can't) get over how kind they were, and how it felt like I had known these people forever.

They even have special "reception" lighting (see: low lighting) near their platforms, so you can really get an idea of what your dress will look like at the reception. So cool!

All in all, they helped me find the dress of my dreams, and not only worked with me (but supplied me with all the information I needed to make the dress my own. I would definitely recommend to anyone searching for their dream dress!

I was pretty sure I knew what dress I wanted before going into Bella Bridal. They were the only ones in the area who were willing to order the sample ahead (at my own cost) for me to try on along with others during my appointment. I loved the dress but wanted some things taken care of during alterations, which they assured me could be done. When I came back in to try on the dress, I was unhappy with how it was made. They made me another appointment after I had called back to discuss if changes were possible or if I would have to reorder the dress. They assured me again that it could all be taken care of with alterations. When I came back in for my first fitting, I was told that some of the alterations were not possible and I had to pay extra for a slip that I did not initially want. Another of my concerns was brushed off and contributed to the dress not being pressed yet. The problem did not go away with pressing (but I wouldn't find that out until I picked it up just days before my wedding), and was not taken care of when I brought it up repeatedly. On top of all that, the price given was well above that quoted initially. I was not able to take my dress elsewhere and had to sign a waiver giving up the right to take pictures of the dress I had already purchased. After multiple fittings and things not being taken care of as they should have been (at my second fitting nothing had been touched), in the end the dress fit but I was mostly ready to just get my dress back. They wouldn't let me take it until 2 days before my wedding so even if something had been wrong, it wouldn't have had time to get fixed.

Originally had a great experience with the buying process-however, once the dress actually came in... it all went downhill from there. They do a great job of selling you on a dress and pushing you to buy something. The staff was very rude and they are a complete rip off when it comes to alterations. I work in the wedding industry and I have never been treated more horribly than from the staff from Bella. The owner would not even call me back and her consultants were horrible to communicate with. The owner really needs to train her staff in customer service and email email etiquette. I ended up taking my dress somewhere else for alterations and they charged me half the price I was quoted by Bella. If you insist on buying your dress from Bella- take it somewhere else for alterations. They carry great brands but It is truly not worth the hassle. There are plenty of other options in the metro Detroit area.

The day of my first dress fitting, it was extremely HOTT in this shop so my dress was fitting too high. It felt as though the air was not on. It's vital that your body is cool when you try on a wedding dress so that was extremely disappointing. The bustle was uneven and it was very difficult to schedule dress fitting appointments in the evening.

I have had a great experience thus far with Bella Bridal! My sis got her dress from here in 2004 and another friend in 2008, both with positive experiences. Mine has also been positive thus far!

I am not a "girly-girl" and the whole "planning a wedding" process was not my thing. I don't wear dresses on a regular basis and I only enjoy shopping at REI. When I first arrived at the store, they were beyond excited to have me and my family there. The excitement level scared me a bit because I am simply not like that; I don't get excited about wedding planning. However, this didn't deter the attendant one bit - she kept positive and was willing to work with me (and I know I was probably difficult). She did a great job focusing on what would suit my body and our wedding style, while keeping in mind the style I wanted.

After that appointment, I went to another bridal shop down the road and they were plain rude to me... my mother and sister both told me that the experience at a shop is just as important as the dress itself. They were absolutely correct! We left the other shop quickly and went back to Bella Bridal to try on my top favorites once again... leading to my "saying yes to the dress" moment! My initial intent was to just "try on styles" and have my dress custom made. However, the Essence of Australia line was just too beautiful to pass up. Turns out, I had bookmarked "my dress" as a Pinterest inspiration - it was meant to be!

Our wedding is in May and I bought the dress in October. I was told it would arrive ~April 1st - leaving just 1 month for fittings/alterations. However, my dress arrived months early, removing that nervous stress. The dress fit perfectly at my first fitting and looked so much better than the trial dress did. I am having a few custom alterations done to the style, which I have yet to know the cost, etc. Overall, I have had a positive experience!

Ladies make sure you compare prices, confirm your appointment and that they have your dress. Ladies before going to this store please compare your prices. I was so hurt when I call to notify them of the price difference and they began yelling at me. I've never ever had this type of treatment and was accuse of trying to blackmail them and being taken to court. Who treats their customers like this. Not sure of the type of customer service they are use to but if you schedule in August 2016 for November 2016 you are serious about your purchase. Not only did they not have all my dresses (which I was okay with) I'm not local but all of my 9 girls and I were getting our dresses from them. The best day of my life has now turned into the worst!!
