I went in to bridal bells very nervous about picking out the perfect dress. Barbara put me at ease the moment I walked in the door. She was extremely helpful and friendly and I ended up finding a dress that I absolutely love! Bridal bells had an incredible selection of plus size wedding dresses to try on! I would definitely recommend bridal bells to anyone planning a wedding!

Bridal Bells was absolutely fantastic!!! I had been to several bridal shops looking for my gown and the quality of dresses from Bridal Bells is not comparable! The material of the dresses were fantastic, they felt more elegant and such better quality than other places I have tried. Every single dress I put on was gorgeous. They were such a huge help picking out gowns too-very honest and knowledgeable! I had even made an error with the time of one fitting (about two hours late) and they were so forgiving and accommodating-they were able to squeeze me in an hour later which was perfect because I live pretty far and it saved me another trip. Very pleased and I absolutely recommend them!

I purchased my wedding dress from Bridal Bells in February, 2015 for my wedding in Maui in October of 2015. Barbara was very nice and helpful with what would fit my body type. I am a plus size lady and i wasnt happy about going into bridal shops to try on size 10 dresses. I was referred by a friend to visit Barbara's shop because she is known to have all sizes. The day I went, I just finished a 60 hour work week and was exhausted but I also knew I had to find a dress soon. I left putting a deposit on a dress I wasn't sure about. I called Barbara that Tueaday and went in that evening. She was understanding and just wanted me to be happy with my decision. I loved my dress and left very happy with my choice. The seamstress, Christina, was also wonderful and alternated my dress to fit me and have my dress done in a timing manner.

I am so thankful for these wonderful ladies. I had a horrible experience getting my wedding dress altered at Alfred Angelo. When I called them, they told me to come the next day and they would fix it. They found mistakes I didn’t even know happened! They were honest with how much they would charge, and always told me what I would have to pay. They re-did my bustle and made it absolutely beautiful. I would recommend getting alterations done by them to anyone. They did a fabulous job and saved my wedding dress!

AMAZING SHOP.

I was concerned about the cost of a dress, so I tried to cut corners and go to one of those large chain stores -- you all know the one I'm talking about. I got talked into buying a dress that I later realized I hated. They may have cheap dresses, but it was overwhelming and unhelpful.

I could not have had a better experience at Bridal Bells. My mom works in Berlin and heard about this place and heard from a coworker that it was the "best kept secret in Berlin".
Barbara is wonderful, she fit my appointment in the same day I called and helped me find dresses that would within my budget. When I was trying on dresses she was helpful without being pushy and very supportive. Her seamstress was there as well, helping with my appointment, and able to offer options for alterations when needed.
I had it narrowed down to two choices when I left the shop. Barbara let me and my mother come back and re-try on the dresses. When I finally made my decision, Barbara just let me stand in front of the mirror, enjoying the dress.
I love that she let me enjoy my moment, and really feel comfortable with the dress and my decision. It was a wonderful experience and a thousand times better than going to the big chain store. I would recommend Bridal Bells to anyone shopping for a bridal, prom, bridesmaid or special occasion dress.

i had purchased my wedding dress from bridal bells March 2012. Barbra was very nice and helpful. I am a plus size girl and she had dresses that would fit me and I could try on. I brought in pictures of dresses I liked and she actually had one of the dresses I loved!!! needless to say I bought it at a very reasonable price. A year later the most unexpected thing happened to me, March 2013 I found out I was pregnant!!! I was panicking, my wedding was in 7 months, what was I going to do?!! Barbra reassured me everything was going to be ok, and that this sort of thing has happened before. I was skeptical; I was going to be huge, there was no way they could fix my dress. well the seamstress and Barbra herself managed to make my dress just as beautiful as if I were never pregnant at all. they did an amazing job and I felt so great in the dress. I cannot thank them or praise them enough for such a wonderful job they did!!!

I had an absolute terrible experience trying on gowns here. The owner decided to go out of her way and order a dress for me with a $50 try-on charge and if I didn't like it, I didn't have to buy it, which sounded like an AMAZING deal....unfortunately when I came to try on the dress, I liked it but was not in love because the material was very shiny, which I kept saying out loud when it came in. The owner and my mom kept saying how nice it was and so my mom put down a deposit. I called the very next day in the morning, explaining how my mom and the owner were the only ones there and I felt pressured into saying yes and that I don't think it's the dress for me. When I came in again with others to see it a couple days later and told her I didn't want it and that I didn't want any other dresses in the store, the owner was RUDE, OBNOXIOUS, AND LIED to mom's face that she's not talking the full 20% for canceling, but she did take the full 20% and I ended up paying a total of $250 back to my mom.

The lady is overtired and shouldn't be running a business if she has no patience for brides, especially with her pressuring me, I was giving her great business buying a $1250 dress when they sell typically $500 dresses and I was treated badly. I admit that I became very angry with the owner and was very assertive, but her attitude and taking all the money she did from me is ridiculous. I left her store in tears and couldn't believe how she runs her business. I will never, ever recommend this place to anyone.

My dress was affordable, beautiful and I could not have been happier with the way it looked. My alterations looked beautiful and were done so quickly. The dress looked perfect when I took it out of the garment bag and the boutique was very affordable.

I found my wedding gown at Bridal Bells and could not have been happier with the quality of service that I received from Barbara and her seamstress!! I had been looking for gowns for awhile and struggled because of my body shape...God blessed my with a tiny waist (size 2) and unfortunately an annoyingly large chest (34 DDD). I struggled with finding a gown that would show off my waist line without having my bust spill out on the top - not attractive or classy by any means!! However, Bridal Bells was my answer to my problem...the seamstress there can do just about anything!! I found a gown I loved and she worked with me on changing and adjusting the top of the dress so that it fit absolutely perfect!! I felt totally comfortable, beautiful and elegant in my gown....I am so thankful to Bridal Bells for helping in making me feel like a true princess on my wedding day!! I loved everything about my gown! I would recommend Bridal Bells to anyone!! Barbara is so pleasant to work with and her prices are unbeatable....PLUS finding a good seamstress is probably one of the most important things for a Bride like myself!! Their services are top notch!! <3

I randomly found Bridal Bells after looking at 7 plus other stores. It's a small shop whichi I wasn't sure about at first but I found Barbara to be very helpful and honest - she knew exactly what type of gown would fit my body which made me immediately feel comfortable and trusting in her. I picked out an A-line sweetheart dress that had tons of appliques on it and it was in white. I had the vision of what I wanted in my head and they turned the dress into exactly what I wanted - took the appliques off, ordrered it in ivory, took the corsette off and added a zipper with buttons. I got so many compliments on my classic yet elegant look, all made possible because of Bridal Bells. Barbara and her team were incredibly accommodating and overall AMAZING!
