I went to Blue House Bridal after a particularly horrible experience at David's Bridal. Coming from out of town, Valerie was willing to work with my schedule (which was very last minute) and she accommodated all of my future appointments with no issue. It was wonderful being the only person in the salon. Blue House worked with my budget and time constraints and provided a beautiful dress. I cannot recommend them enough!

Valerie was wonderful! I had a short engagement and she spent extra time with me to find a dress off the rack that I love! I felt instantly comfortable and assured that she knew what I was looking for. The building is darling and the individual attention is why I'd recommend Blue House Bridal.

What a delightful bridal boutique located in the heart of Carmel. As I started to look for wedding dresses, I quickly fell in love with Pronovias designs and couldn't wait to see where I could go to try them on in the Indianapolis area. Was I ever surprised that there is only ONE dealer in the whole state....but so relieved that she was located in Carmel, where I live! I will start by saying I'm an incredibly particular person, and worse, very indecisive! Despite this, Valerie was so so patient, always happy to book another appointment with me to again try on the same dress, or new dresses, or see the latest jewellery and accessories that came in, or accommodate the schedule of my mum's out-of-town visits. She books one appointment at a time, so you have the lovely experience of having the whole boutique to yourself and her undivided attention. She always provided honest and helpful opinions and advice (which means a lot to me) and of course, had gorgeous pieces for me to choose from and ultimately bring the whole look together. When I wasn't sure if I'd find a headpiece that I liked, she contacted the designer to get photos of other options that could be custom made. All this said, she was also very respectful of budget and would try hard to listen to likes/dislikes and find something that worked. She has been in the wedding business for years, in other areas as well as fashion, and it shows. Without any of my close friends or family nearby to help, it was so nice to be able to turn to her to discuss dresses, jewellery, accessories, hair, even shoes! I have told everyone about Blue House Bridal and will continue to recommend. :) THANK YOU, Valerie!

My advice to future brides, do NOT buy your dress from this boutique. I was greatly disappointed in two areas, quality of the dress/customer service.

1.) Quality of dress. For as much as we paid for this dress, I certainly did not expect it to rip in three different places on the skirt. I was very careful with my dress but even the slightest pull on my skirt and it started to rip. As a result, I had pieces of my skirt trailing on the ground that made it difficult for me to do my first dance and looked awful as the delicate fabric was hanging in shreds from the skirt. Honestly, I feel like the quality of the dress was exceedingly low and not at all what we had been lead to believe.

2.) Customer Service. Valerie is quite possibly the rudest person I have ever worked with. We tried on and then ordered a pair of earrings from her during a trunk show we attended in February. I have an allergy to nickle and she assured me that the earrings were nickle free, so that's why we ordered them. However the next day, my ears were swollen and sore and I knew that the earrings contained nickle. We called Valerie to let her know and she again assured us they were nickle free. When the earrings came in, we picked them up and I tried them on again to make sure they were nickle free. Once again, I had a reaction. We told Valerie this and she got very defensive and angry but said she would re-order as they must have made a mistake. A week out from the wedding, the earrings had not arrived. We called and checked on a timeline and she said they would come in the DAY before the wedding. This left me no time to test them again. We decided to cancel our order and go another route. Valerie was very angry and abusive in her language and insulted my Mother. She very angrily refunded our money and said a few nasty things to my Mother. We found a pair for the wedding but could not believe her attitude.

What kind of a person ruins a customer relationship over a $60 pair of earrings?

We purchased our dress, veil, and accessories from Blue House. The initial person we delt with was wonderful. However, when the owner returned, we felt we were dealing with a very unprofessional person. We were told the jewlery was nickle free. However, after trying the dress on when it arrived and wearing the jewlery for less than 30 minutes, we had a terrible skin reaction. When we tried to return the jewlery it was a very unpleasant situation. I found the experience tarnished by the unprofessional tantrum we encountered. I would look other places before I would purchase here.

I randomly found Blue House Bridal when doing a generic dress search on google. I had organized a time for my mom, sister-in-law, future mother-in-law, and MOH to all get together and look at dresses. I had an appointment with a different store who was SO incredibly rude everytime I contacted them so I was deperate to find a new store that could accommodate us all on such a short notice. I originally called and left a message with Blue House Bridal. I didn't hear back, so the next day I emailed Valerie at BHB. I told her the situation and that I was desperate for an appointment this weekend (it was only a few days away!) and luckily she was able to squeeze us in!

BHB is such a cute little house. They had a great variety of dresses. Valerie stayed within my budget. I found a few I liked, but my MOH picked out one on a whim for me to try on. It was slightly out of my budget, but after trying it on and seeing how much I LOVED it, Valerie was able to come down on the price slightly. It truly is a one of a kind dress, I haven't seen any other dresses like it in Indy!

Valerie was so friendly, and helpful. She knew exactly what dresses to pull when she asked what styles I liked and didn't like. I loved being able to buy my dress from her. It's just her running the store, and she did a WONDERFUL job. I would highly recommend visiting Blue House Bridal!

I really really liked this store. Even though I didn't end up getting dress here I really enjoyed my experience and they do have some absolutely gorgeous dresses! I was worried that this place might me too expensive for my budget but they had a great selection of sample dresses that were within my price range. I would definitely recommend this dress shop!

Valerie was so sweet to work with. I had made an appointment at her shop on a whim thinking it would just be fun to go to a more personal boutique expecting everything to be way out of my price range, but she has all kinds of dresses there, and I found the one! If you want to be treated like you are special and not get elbowed by other brides trying to beat you to a dress, come here!!

I cannot say enough positive things about Blue House Bridal. Valerie took such good care of me as a bride, and made my mom and sister feel a part of the process as well. The atmosphere is so cozy and you can really have a special experience with your family and friends. The dresses are gorgeous and they are definitely high quality. Blue House also understood my budget and helped me stay on track. They truly care about their customers and want their brides to be happy. You should definitely check out Blue House Bridal!

Working with Valerie at Blue House Bridal has been a great experience. I went to some of the "typical" bridal stores on my first day of shopping (i.e. David's Bridal) and had an ok time. When I came the Blue House the following day, I couldn't have hoped for a better experience. My mom and I were the only people shopping in the store, so I didn't feel stressed or pressured. Valerie was so helpful in helping me select & try on dresses, and she completely understood that I was on a budget. Blue House gave us SO MUCH value for our money and I could tell that more than anything else, Valerie wanted me to be 100% happy with my dress choice. When I purchased earrings and a veil from Blue House recently during a trunk sale, the experience was just as wonderful. My dress fit like a glove and I got so many compliments! Thank you Valerie!!!
