I don't normally write reviews, but I had such a positive experience, I have to share.
I had a lot of family members who wanted to come with me to find my gown but I wanted a more intimate experience with my mom. My mom and I decided to go to a couple of different stores and find one or two that I liked on our own and then bring the rest of the family to be there when I actually bought a dress.
When my mom and I went, Bobbie let me pick a few dresses while she grabbed some she thought would look good on me. She ended up showing me the right type of silhouette while I chose the actual dress.
So now the problem was I completely fell in love with a dress that was exactly my size and was a brand new sample that no one else had even tried on. She said she couldn't guarantee they'd still have it when I came back a month later with family, so I decided to buy it that day with my mom.
After were explained the situation to Bobbie and I told her that I especially wanted my future mother in law to feel included, she came up with a brilliant solution.
Since we had bought the dress, she said we could keep it there and bring in my family to show them later without telling them we had already bought it. We came back a month later and Bobbie helped me pull a few dresses to try on for them, but then brought out my dress from the back after nothing else was working. I put on my dress (which nobody else knew I had already purchased) and everyone got to feel like they helped me make the decision, none the wiser. I still can't believe that Bobbie helped me create this second "fake" appointment so that I could have that special feeling with my mom and then again with my whole family. I really can't thank her enough.

Amy was great in helping me find and try on dresses I liked even though I came without my appointment. My dress came in before the estimate, and they did the alterations pretty quickly so that I could have my final fitting during my college spring break. They were very responsive and great at working with my timeline of when I was in town. I felt like they nickel and dimed us a bit in charging for the shipment bag and charging $50 for changing out one belt from the designer that came with the dress for another belt - even though they had initially said they would switch them out for free. The alterations also seemed more expensive than I heard others paid for similar dresses. Ultimately, I would still recommend them, but would be very clear in asking about the additional costs so that there are no surprises.

I have been a regular customer of Bobbie's for years - mostly due to always being a bridesmaid in a friend or family member's wedding. Bobbie was always great to work with and it gave me a sense of community pride to do business with a local, family-owned business. When it was finally time for this bridesmaid to become a bride I knew I needed to visit Bobbie's Bridal Boutique.

I think I was in the store for less than 5 minutes when my mother and I both spotted THE dress. I tried it on and the fit was perfect - as if it had been custom-made! The fit was so perfect that I didn't even need to have it hemmed. (The only alteration required was having the straps adjusted which ran about $80.)

It was because of Bobbie's keen eye for bridal design that this dress made it to her shop. She said the dress caught her eye and she knew she needed to have it in store ASAP. Sure, Bobbie's carries all of the designers you see advertised in bridal magazines but she also has these hidden, one-of-a-kind gems! And what bride doesn't want to feel special and one-of-a-kind of her big day!

Bobbie's Bridal Boutique is every bit deserving of a 5-star review! Say yes to the dress at Bobbie's - you (and your checkbook) will be glad you did! After the wedding, I plan to come back to Bobbie's to have my dress altered to a shorter-length to wear on my anniversary!

This was a great process. I found a beautiful dress and had a great selection for under 2000 dollars. Bobbie was great and their alterations department does really good work. Its a small shop so its easy to get a feel for what you want here.

I started looking for dresses around the October 2014 timeframe for my April 25th wedding. This was the first place my aunt and I went and we really did not want to look any further after that. Everyone was very nice and asked the standard questions -- budget, type of fit and anything I had in mind.
They were EXTREMELY helpful from beginning to end. One of the things that I really needed was an honest, yet non-judgmental opinion about what looks good and what does not. And Amy, one of the ladies in the shop, was definitely that person. After I chose the dress and came back to try it on again... I never felt rushed throughout the process. And yes, they have a no photo policy and that was a tiny bit difficult at first because when I was sleeping on whether to get the dress or not, I couldn't remember what it looked like. But I was able to go back multiple times to get the feel and sense and finally chose it.

Fast forward a few days before the wedding... I went to pick up my dress and when I got home, I thought the lace to the corset was short. I called the very next morning stating my concern (and completely aware that I was quite possibly becoming THAT bride) and they told me to come in right away to fix it. Amy was there and went through the whole process with me to reassure me that everything was going to be just fine (not that I doubted her--- but I had 3 days till the wedding! I was freaking out! lol) I was super apologetic about wasting her time and she was super gracious in making sure I was comfortable and confident. I will always be grateful for that. And the dress (Maggie Sottero's Emma) was A.MAZ.ING!! :)

Let me first say that my dress was GORGEOUS!

I liked and disliked my experience at Bobbie's Bridal. I loved it because I walked away with the dress of my dreams, but dislike the path I had to take to get there. They were professional, and responsive, but not very flexible. The sales woman was also a little pushy. Don't get me wrong, she was nice and not pushy in a rude way, but my dream dress was actually my second dress purchased from them. I was highly pressured into the first dress, which I didn't love. It was a dress I knew of since I was 16 and I couldn't believe it was still around. When I put it on I was so shocked that I found it and my mom LOVED it on me. I kept saying there was one more I wanted to try on (one that they didn't carry) and my mom insisted it wouldn't look good on me and the saleswoman took her side. The saleswoman also kept reducing the price if we purchased today in attempt to make the sale and my mother kept getting excited about the price and long story short I felt pressured to say yes. Two weeks later I called and wanted to exchange the dress order because I had so much regret about caving to the pressure when I was so close to trying on the real dress I wanted. Bobbie did exchange the dress for me, only if I agreed to lose FIVE HUNDRED dollars on the first gown. Now I'm well aware of why of retailers don't allow returns and exchanges, but the first gown I bought was a sample gown straight off the floor and was actually discontinued. It wasn't like she had to order the dress like all the rest and the manufacturer was refusing to make the exchange or return. The gown only been off the floor for two weeks and the alterations hadn't even been made yet. I dealt with everything with a smile but even in the moment I wasn't happy and just did what I had to do to avoid walking down the aisle in a dress I had come to be hate. She could have been much more flexible, but I guess I can't expect much from someone in business to make money.

I had a wonderful experience at Bobbie's Bridal. I had a specific wedding dress in mind (Maggie Sottero's Bernadette) and I searched on the designer's website for vendors near me. Bobbie's bridal came up, and i called there on a Monday morning. Bobbie (the owner) answered and I asked her if she had the dress, "Bernadette" she said yes and explained what it looked like,which to me showed how knowledgeable she is about her inventory. Before she let me make an appointment to try on the dress, she asked me some questions abotu my body type (height/weight), which again showed me she knew her dresses and wanted to make sure she had me trying on a dress that would fit well with my build. She scheduled me for that afternoon and my MIL and I went to try on the dress. Upon arrival, she had the dress already in a fitting room for me and she had several similar dresses laid out as well. This made the selection process so easy! I tried on three dresses (all from what she laid out) and decided Bernadette was indeed THE ONE. I ordered the dress and she told me she would call when it was in. Six months later, she called me and I scheduled my first fitting for the next day. The only thing I would say that could be improved is if she told her brides that all alterations had to be paid in full at the first fitting. I had 1/2 inch hem, pads put in, and a double french bustle added, which cost $600! I was not expecting to pay in full after the first fitting, but I had to. Now, in hindsight, the cost was worth it because the lace was intact on the hem and the bustle was numbered, easy to do, and really well done. Also, I had crystals taken out under my arms to prevent irritation and at my second fitting, I needed some darts added keep the keyhole back laying flat and these additional alterations were done at no extra charge. Overall, I LOVED my dress and Bobbie and her seamstress were very professional and great to work with. I would recommend going to her for her great dresses!

We honestly went on craigslist and found this vendor. My husband is strict catholic so we needed very conservative gowns and they seemed to fit the par. We out skirted from Barclay designs but they did all the fittings and alterations. I had no complaints, very time efficient and the gowns ended up looking conservative but great.
