A friend recommended this bridal salon to me, so I decided to visit while I was in Pittsburgh visiting family. I was very impressed with the selection, but I did think it was somewhat difficult to find a dress within my price range of $1500. My consultant (I wish I could remember her name) was very sweet and helpful. I would give my initial experience 4/5 stars. However, when I traveled back to Pittsburgh for my first fitting, I was very disappointed. My dress was gigantic and my body/weight hadn't changed since I bought the dress. My alterations were going to be so extensive it was going to cost me half the price of the dress. I asked for a smaller dress to be ordered but I was told this wasn't an option. I was told I would need to come back for 3-5 different fittings and when I said I wasn't interested and was going to take the dress back to Erie for alterations, I felt very uncomfortable and awkward in the salon. My seamstress in Erie said that the dress should have been at least 2 sizes smaller. In the end, my dress was absolutely beautiful, but I wouldn't recommend this salon.

I highly recommend them! They have such a huge dress selection and the staff is very friendly and helpful. I went to 3 other bridal shops before going here and I wish that I didn't waste my time at those other shops. I should have came here first. Their service is wonderful! The only word of wisdom or caution that I would give brides is that their alteration prices are super expensive. Expect to pay at least $400-$500 (if not more) for just the hem, bustle and taking it in a little on the sides. But the lady that does the alterations is a true pro and worth every penny! Saida is the best and she did an amazing job on the alterations and in a short time too! She was friendly and great at her job, so it made it less painful to pay a high price for such great work! I'm so glad I bought my gorgeous dress from such an awesome place!

I got my dress here from consultant Lisa who was perfect. She brought me my perfect dress and veil and she along with the rest of the staff were a pleasure to work with. You also receive a discount if it's your first time there.

I went into Bridal Beginning with my bridesmaids, as well as my mom and aunt. I had a bad experience at another salon, so I was hesitant about what to expect from the day. I was so incredibly pleased with the service I received, as well as the dress I chose! Sam was my consultant, and she was absolutely fabulous! She took into consideration all of the different things I was looking for, and brought out tons and tons of dresses that fit the bill, as well as some others that she thought I might like to see. She was so attentive to everything, and went well above and beyond what I expected. Not only did she help me choose the perfect dress, but she also helped my bridesmaids choose dresses, as well. I couldn't be happier!

I've heard a lot of people have problems with the staff, but I personally had a good experience with bridal beginnings. I bought my bridal gown here and paid a reasonable price. My consultant was very nice and helpful. The alterations are a little pricey compared to other salons.

When I lived in the South Hills, I used to drive by Bridal Beginning all the time. I would slow down and gape at the beautiful, unique dresses in the front window (to the irritation to the drivers behind me, I'm sure). Surprisingly, by the time I'd lived in the North Hills for a couple years and got engaged, I had almost forgotten about those gorgeous displays.

Thus, Bridal Beginning was the second dress shop where I tried on wedding gowns. I made an appointment a few days after finding a dress I really liked but wasn't 100% sure of at another store. I explained all of this to my consultant, Leslie, and showed her a picture of my potential dress. We talked a bit about my venue and overall vision. Then, she disappeared to find dresses...

When she came back, I was amazed. She had found several dresses, all of which I loved. I narrowed it down to two and tried each of those on a second time. Leslie was extremely patient, lacing up the backs each time. I finally decided on my dress and placed the order.

Fast forward six to seven months and my dress was in. I got alterations from Bridal Beginning and, while it was expensive, I think it was the best decision for me. The dress fit beautifully and the sash I'd ordered was attached perfectly. And, surprisingly, my bustle held up all night long, something I definitely didn't expect from all the stories I've heard over the years.

It is hard to get an appointment and they do get very busy. My one piece of advice is to go on weeknight evenings, which I know doesn't work for everyone but it will get you better service IMO.

I fell in love with an amazing dress while I was here with my entire family. The dress was pricey but not many other shops carried it so I ordered it from Bridal Beginnings when they agreed to cap my alterations cost. I ordered it in January expecting that to be more than enough time for my August wedding. When I called to check on the status, they didn’t expect it to come in until July 1st! Luckily it came in early around June 16th. I am from out of town so scheduling alterations was important and they were able to get me in whenever I needed. They ordered my dress a size too big but I thought the alterations would ensure a perfect fit. I went to 2 fittings, each time needing the dress taken in more, which was a good feeling. However, when I went to pick up my dress the day before, it was still not taken in enough and the dress did not seem pressed and I was very upset with its general appearance. Luckily the seamstress was able to fix it while I waited for an hour so it turned out beautiful. I just dont know what I would have done if I just picked it up and not tried it on. Overall I was satisfied, but did not think that their service was exceptional in any way.
