Bella Bridesmaids was an easy and helpful place to get dresses for my bridesmaids. In my experience, most of the dresses, you can get at any salon, and we actually went to Bella just because of its ease of access for most of the girls (downtown Boston, when some girls were visiting for a weekend and I don't have a car). When we went, they suggested a dress I hadn't planned on trying on, but, wound up falling in love with. Looking back, I am so grateful for that suggestion, because one of my favorite parts of the wedding were the dresses the girls wore next to me. I think the issues we had were more on the part of the dressmaker and not Bella, but the salon did their very best to make it right. They wound up needing to remake a dress because the maker was going through a line transition and the sizing was completely off, but only one girl out of 6 had any sort of issue, that's including four girls that were across the country. All in all, I think they were responsive and helpful, and patient. I think they'll work really hard to make sure any bride and her girls are dressed just right!

Bella Bridesmaids helped me find my bridesmaid dresses in a quick and easy process! I thought they had a great selection and were pretty on par with other bridesmaid dresses. They helped me to select the dresses and get them in quickly so my bridesmaids could get the sale price. Alison and Brit were both very helpful and pleasant to work with. I would highly recommend them!

I had a great experience at Bella Bridesmaid! They had several bridesmaid dresses I was interested in and were patient and offered good suggestions while my girls were trying them on. We got a discount for posting a picture on Instagram. They also helped me order a cute belt for my maid of honor.

As a simple gal planning a farm wedding, I was looking for a bridesmaid dress to wear down the aisle. Brit was wonderful at helping me to find the perfect, simple wedding dress. She was fantastic and everything worked out great!

So helpful and polite. I loved the dresses but two tore (slightly) very easily during the night. The girls were great though!

Before shopping for bridesmaids dresses, I had heard only good things about Bella Bridesmaid. Unfortunately, my experience was terrible.

I had emailed and called Bella Bridesmaid to set up an appointment (I will admit they were quite responsive) and asked them if they had 5 specific bridesmaid dresses in stock. They assured me three separate times that they did.

When I arrived to my appointment, I was shocked to find out that they carried none of the dresses they had specifically promised and was told "to come back another time" -- despite the fact that my mother had specifically come into town for this event.

Go to L'Elite across the street -- the selection is just as large, they help you buy during trunk shows to take advantage of the best pricing, and they are much nicer and more helpful.

I am getting married June 7th and ordered all my bridesmaids dresses through this store. My maid of honor ordered a small and when the dress came in it was huge on her, she tried on my sister's dress that was a medium and it was smaller than her supposed "small." When my maid of honor contacted the Boston store about THEIR error the woman told her there was nothing she could do. The woman who is the owner was completely rude and unprofessional. My sisters have visited other Bella bridesmaids locations and they were 10x more professional and helpful. Bottom line if you like their dresses order from another store.

I was recently a bridesmaid in my sister-in-law’s wedding, and we ordered our dresses from Bella Bridesmaids. The sales staff measured each bridesmaid, but when the dresses came in, the dress only fit one bridesmaid out of 7. Not only did the sales staff at Bella Bridesmaids measure us incorrectly, they didn’t bother to inform us that Jim Hjelm dresses run incredibly small. Every dress store I have been to since has immediately known that you need to go up at least one size with Jim Hjelm dresses – it would have been nice if Bella Bridesmaids informed us of this. Instead, they let a 7-person bridal party order the wrong size and then didn’t offer to help correct the situation when 6 of us were stuck with dresses that fit so tight in the top that we couldn’t breathe. When the bride contacted Bella, they told her we could a) reorder the dress in the right size, which would take 10 weeks (the wedding was in 7 weeks), b) Bella would contact other stores around the country in search of the correct sizes (no one ever got back to us about this), or c) Bella would SELL us additional fabric which we could us to piecemeal the dress together. In the end, the 6 of us all had to spend a significant amount of money on alterations to have the entire top part of the dress let out. When I called the store to address this with them and ask them to help out with the cost of additional alterations, I initially spoke to the owner who said she would give me a call back the next day. When I didn’t hear back from her a week later, I started leaving messages. I called Bella four times over the last 6 weeks and never got a single response. As if it wasn’t bad enough that they measured us incorrectly and didn’t bother to advise how one of their designer’s dresses fit, their customer service is even more deplorable. Had the owner bothered to return my calls, she would have known that I am planning my own wedding, and my bridesmaids will not be purchasing their dresses from Bella.

Unfortunately, I did not have a great experience using Bella Bridesmaid for my bridesmaid dresses. I will say that there was a great selection at the store and the girls working there are very nice and appear professional. However, I had some major issues that could have seriously affected my wedding. First, the dresses came in 6 weeks later than expected and 2 weeks before my wedding. My BMs had to run to their seamstresses and they only gave us a 10% discount - about $20 per girl (though they did offer that without my asking). They did not do a good job keeping me updated throughout the 6 weeks of lateness and beyond that I never got a very good explanation as to why they were so late. They would promise to send me an update or a tracking number and I’d never get it. Worst of all, they told me the dresses would be navy. The color was called Midnight, but I trusted the girls at Bella considering I walked in saying I only wanted a navy dress and they said this dress came in navy. They were purple!! My wedding colors were navy and blush. And since the dresses got in so late, there was certainly nothing I could do about it even if I wanted to. All in all, I had a great wedding and my BM’s looked gorgeous in their purple dresses, but I was very, very disappointed with my experience.
