Ariel at Bella Bridesmaid was phenomenal! I expressed to her what I was looking for and she pulled a variety of great dresses for me. The dresses here were leaps and bounds better and more unique than most other bridal shops I have been to and there was a large selection to choose from. Even though the shop was busy, Ariel squeezed me in for a return appointment to purchase dresses and provided me with all of the designer details and prices. She even helped with accessories. I would highly recommend going through this cute shop in the 3rd Ward for any bridesmaid needs.

Milwaukee brides...Bella Bridesmaids is back! Ariel is AMAZING. She is so sweet and helpful. I had some second thoughts about the bridesmaid dresses, and she let me come back in to take another look (before the ladies ordered their dresses), and reassured me that the dresses would be perfect (as they were!). The dresses came in earlier than expected, and Ariel was able to be flexible about pick-up. The staff there is super responsive; I don't think I ever waited more than 24 hours to hear back from them.

The only drawback is that the store itself is pretty small and cramped. When we looked, there were six in my group and one other bridal party in the store and it was far too crowded! I'd recommend going on a weekday if possible...I've been there a couple of times now, and even a Friday afternoon/early evening is much less crowded. Although it was cramped, they had a great selection! I love that they only specialize in bridesmaids dresses. There were so many great brands to choose from.

Ordered bridesmaid dresses through this shop 7 months of ahead of wedding date. I was told they would be in on or before January 5th. Many emails and phone calls were not returned as this date flew by. Dresses did not come in until mid-February. Was told they were cut from
different dye lots and would have to be sent back and reordered on rush shipment as wedding date was April 18th, 2015.

Owner/stylist KAYLA EHLEN told us they would be here 3-4 weeks before wedding. At 3 weeks I started calling and emailing as I heard no updates. Was told they'd be there Friday (which was almost 2 weeks before). I asked for tracking numbers when they shipped. I called the Chicago branch so they could double check this information.

Chicago store called me Wednesday afternoon and said that the dresses were never ordered. Stylist KAYLA EHLEN lied to us multiple times and was feeding us false information on dresses that never existed. Is this a money pilfering scam?

Chicago store was wonderful and got us dresses within 3 days for all girls because KAYLA EHLEN had messed up so many times and we refused to work with her. KAYLA EHLEN played dumb when asked about the situation.ABSOLUTE WORST PERSON I HAVE EVER WORKED WITH. We will be blitzing all possible sites with negative reviews. No one else should have to go through this. Chicago store refunded us the cost of dresses.

Bella Bridesmaid Milwaukee responded with the following comments:

Hello,

Thank you very much for your feedback and we sincerely apologize for your experience with the previous owner of the Milwaukee location.

My name is Erin. My mom and I are the owner/operators of the Bella Bridesmaids in Chicago and the franchisors of the company.

We regret and continue to be deeply shocked and saddened by Kayla's negligence and the damage it caused. We terminated her franchise agreement, took ownership of the Milwaukee location and - we hope - took responsibility for the orders affected and made it our top priority to put dresses in bridesmaids hands. Some solutions were imperfect due to timing, but we did try to work with every bride individually to find a plan that best suit her needs, bridesmaids and vision for her wedding day.

We are so very sorry this affected you and this wedding. I believe you were part of Michelle Palmer's bridal party and hope all of you had a most wonderful wedding weekend in spite of this incredible setback.

Thank you again.

Sincerely,

Erin

I have never gone out of my way to write a review before, but let me just say the customer service of this place is outrageous! I have been in customer service for years and when the company is wrong we apologizes and admit our faults! They, however, will not take responsibility for anything. The communication between our bridal party and them was slim to none. It took them almost 6 months to just charge the bridal party to the point where we were starting to look elsewhere for dresses because we thought we werent getting them. Period. This is not a way to make the hectic life of a bride easier. Absolutely ridiculos.

Terrible service. Measurements were way off. The dresses were not wearable - poorly made, impossible to walk or sit in them. I now have 5 expensive dresses in a box in my basement. Bella Bridesmaid of Milwaukee deserves to go out of business!

Absolutely the BEST! I would recommend Bella in Milwaukee to anyone who would listen! A few bmaids and I actually started at the one in Chicago - which was just as fantastic. We picked out a style and the girls who were spread out around the country were all in the area of another Bella so that worked out really well for them to try on the dresses. We ordered from Milwaukee and they were just outstanding with their customer service. I probably emailed four hundred questions about the dresses, the invoices, payment, the forms - you name it - and they were so amazing about emailing me back each time. They would email me ten times a day if I had that many questions! The ordering and pick up was so easy, too - it was just a hassle-free experience AND they are so nice on top of it!
