I went dress shopping twice in this store before purchasing my wedding dress and they couldn't have been nicer. I then referred my Mom to the store for her dress. We went, she ordered a dress, and 1w later they called her and told her the dress was discontinued. My Mom was upset but they offered her 20% off another dress so we ordered another dress from them. Then my Stepmom tried on some dresses there but wanted to consult my Dad before purchasing. My Stepmom called them 3 times over 2 weeks, to which they never called her back. Meanwhile, at that same visit, I had ordered cobalt blue shoes from them as well. Two weeks later, after no return call, I called back, to which they apologized and also informed me the blue shoes were also dicontinued. I was absolutely furious. They apologized up and down and offered 50% off of a veil. I then went back when my wedding dress came in, and tried on a beautiful veil. They told me the price, but when I went to pay she said that she had been mistaken and it was $75 more than what she quoted initially. I asked if she could look up the veil to make sure it hadn't been discontinued, but because it was a Sunday, they couldn't call. I asked if she could look it up online and she looked at me as if she had 5 heads. The owner was extremely rude, disorganized, and her shop was a mess. If her shop wasn't the only shop around that sold my dress, I would have gone elsewhere. All of my other vendors were perfect and this vendor caused my nothing but stress and anger. The dress was beautiful, as was my Mother's, but I would NEVER EVER EVER recommend this vendor even to my worst enemy.

This is a hard review to write because it really involves many people. I want to start with the pros. My wife and I wanted to buy dresses from the same place in order to make things easy; since 2 brides can get a bit complicated. Joyce our consultant was the first reason we didn't just walk away from this shop. She was so helpful and friendly. She made the shopping experience comfortable which is hard to do when we have found discrimination in the past. She even was extremely understanding and calming when I went back in because I wasn't sure if my dress was "the one". Bridal and Gifts does their alternations at a different shop down the road and there are two shining stars there also. Gail and Jean (our seamstresses) were AMAZING miracle workers! They added and subtracted and helped us laugh through the whole thing, making sure that neither of us saw each other's dresses. Just like Joyce they were warm and accepting. Jean was even more concerned with finishing my dress and doing our bridesmaids sleeves than the broken arm she suffered from toward the end of our fittings. I could really tell that Joyce, Gail, and Jean loved their jobs and wanted to help us have a wonderful wedding day!
Now the cons...as a shop, bridal and gifts is at times a near diaster. They don't work on computers, everything is hand written, and frequently staff members don't know what the heck is going on. My dress was supposed to be put on hold by my wife's did instead which created several headaches, and there were many frustrated and confusing conversations about payments and pick ups. I would understand the confusion, with there being two brides, but the way they work their system, we were two seperate accounts that just happened to be getting married on the same time, like many other women there I am sure. They advertise that they have plus sizes but don't get too excited because they are pretty limited in styles, my wife and I actually ended up trying on several of the same dresses so it was good we had the same consultant or we might have ended up matching! Also they measured me and then ordered a dress several sizes too large (so that I had to pay extra for plus size) but Jean informed me that they could have ordered me smaller so she wouldn't have to take in so much (which cost more as well). Also there store is super small so although you will get a room and a personal consultant, you might have to squeeze through small corridors and many racks of dresses to get to a mirror/pedestool. Overall the employees we worked with are what made me not tear my hair out with this shop, either they have great workers who understand their system is awful and who bend over backwards to help their brides out, or we just got really lucky.
Either way, Joyce, Jean, and Gail are the ladies you should ask for...they are wonderful!

Laura and Fran at Bridal & Gift helpd me feel like the most beautiful bride! I ended up getting a Maggie Sottero and felt a little guilty for spending more than I originally budgetted, but all of that went away once everything was paid for and the way I looked and felt on my wedding day is priceless. Thank you sooo much for making me feel like a special bride and not just another run in the mill commercial bride. I am completely satisfied with service at this adorable boutique!

Bridal and Gift was great. I worked with Laura and she really listened to what I wanted. I tried on about 4 dresses the first time and found one I loved. So she told us to come back another time and she would pull more to "beat" that dress and if she didn't then I would know for sure it was the one! It was great that she didn't try to push a sale on me until we were sure! But guess what it was "the one"! We went to the Bridal and Gift II to get fitted. Jean was amazing! I had lost weight and took my whole dress in! It fit like a glove (which was important because it wasn't a corset back). I plan on going to Jean for all my alternations! We loved Bridal and Gift so much that my sister ordered her wedding gown, my mom ordered 2 MOB dresses, and I ordered all 6 Bridesmaids dresses. They have a ton of stock and I plan on recommending all my friends to Bridal and Gift!

Love, Mary

The folks at B & G did not bat an eyelash when I told them my budget ($800 or less) or when I told them that I wanted something non-traditional and in COLOR. They helped me find the most beautiful dress I have ever worn, and they were timely and accommodating at every step.

My gown was beautiful but they were very unorganized and I had to have my daughter sew me into the gown before the ceremony. They were nice people but it became tedious to deal with constantly reminding them that we had already paid for the dresses and now we needed to have them fitted.

Let me start off with the positives, They had the dress I wanted, Francia who is by far the nicest and most honest person there was a plessure to work with and she did a great job with my dress. I spent alot of money in this place we purchased my 7 Bridesmaids dresses, my 4 flowergirls, pillow, accesories, veil, fabric, and a tux, and the reason why I dont give them 5 stars is because when I purchased my dress I asked them when should I have My BM come in to order their dresses, and explained to them that most of the live out of state, they states that Dec was ok to place the orders and have them back on time, well long story short we ended up having to pay $35 for each of the dresses including flower girls (do the math) I was very upset and after some arguing the owner gave me her price $25 which is still alot and also very upseting to find out that she takes a $10 cut out charching rush fees, Linda (the owner) seemed always overwhelmed and confused and could never seem to remember me or my wedding details.. like the colors.!!... I would advise that you order on time to avoid this, and that you choose someone that you feel truly cares about your experience in their stor and not how much can the y make from your wedding. Back to the positives, as there are alot as well, overall they were all very nice, and have lots of selections and designers to choose from. we also won a vacation week because of all the BM dresses we purchaesed we stil havent used it so I cant comment on that yet.

My mom on a whim googled local bridal stores and went to this one. When we pulled in the parking lot we almost left due to the appearance of the building, it could use some paint. But I’m so glad we went in! We were greeted very warmly and were impressed with how many high end dresses were in the store as well as the pricing. We worked consistently with one saleswoman over several trips there. She listened well to what I wanted, then picked one dress that could have fit into my description, but that I never would have tried on. It was perfect! Every time we returned we were greeted with excitement the staff remembered who we were and made the shopping a friendly visit as we looked at dresses, which made very relaxed. In the end we got the dress I never would have tried on and it was perfect! They also did a superb job on my alterations and a very difficult bustle! My entire wedding party including the moms all picked a dress from the same store as well!

I was not impressed with this bridal shop at all, but they happened to have a dress that I fell in love with. When I went back to order it from them, which I had made an appointment for, I received horrible service and got bounced around from person to person even though I was buying one of the most expensive dresses they carried. It made the whole dress buying experience very stressful. I did receive my dress in perfect condition exactly when they said I would though.

I found the perfect dress the first time i tried it on and first one i picked it out. They have many beautiful dresses. The pricing was good as well. The only concern i had was timing on my veil and peaople making time so you don't rush through other clients. They are a very busy shop and felt like when i called they had no idea where my things were.
