I actually purchased my dress from Estelle's Dressy Dresses on Long Island, but other than the fact that my dress was beautiful (and a lucky find), their service was atrocious.

My mother bought her dress from Bridal Center Boutique and because my mother was a customer, they agreed to tailor my dress which was awesome.

I came in a total of 3 times, first for the initial measurements and fitting. I had a mermaid dress with corset back but the dress was huge on me and I actually had to hold it up to prevent it from falling. After the second fitting, it was very tight. I actually needed help getting in and out of it. 3rd time was a charm and the dress was perfect on me. It really complimented my curves and I actually had cleavage (I don't have big boobs so I was really excited about this).

The staff is very friendly and flexible (like I said they agreed to tailor my dress even though I didn't get it from them, which I am very thankful for). They stepped through the corset tying and bustling process with my sister and answered all of our (newbie) questions.

One thing I messed up on: I forgot my shoes in the 3rd and final fitting and so the length of my dress was too long the day of. Obviously, that's my bad. The length was perfect the second fitting but I think that might have been because it was so tight on me it was sitting higher? Definitely always make sure you have the correct shoes for ALL fittings.

Being the anti-bride I was actually dreading dress shopping a little bit - but Virginia and her staff made the process easy, stress-free, and actually enjoyable. There were plenty of options in my budget and even though my appointment took longer than anticipated I never felt as though I was being rushed. I ended up getting a dress off the rack and consequently had to have a LOT of complicated alterations done - even after just the second fitting the dress was fitting nearly perfectly (minus the length). Virginia also personally spent time helping my mother and I find the perfect veil and hair piece to accent the details on my dress. Everything went as easily and pleasantly as possible!

I first went to Bridal Center Boutique when the shop was in East Brunswick (my hometown). What initially drew me to the store was that she had the designers that I liked and were in my budget. I was so excited to find out that my appointment was scheduled with Virginia, the owner of the shop herself! A lot of shop owners tend to be all business and just care about the sale, but Virginia genuinely cares about her clients and their comfort. She doesn't try to sneak dresses above your price range into the dressing room. There were tons of dresses on the racks, so my mother and I split up and each picked out a few. Of course, my mother knew better and picked out three dresses that I couldn't decide between! I wound up with a gorgeous Casablanca dress exactly in my price range and a beautiful veil that was the perfect compliment to it. I got SO many compliments throughout the day and felt great throughout the process knowing that Virginia was on my side and always communicative in letting me know about when my dress arrived, scheduling fittings, etc. If you want a no-stress experience, go to BCB!

I actually live nearby Bridal Center Boutique's previous location. When I first went in to try on dresses, I didn't realize they were moving to Pompton Lakes. I decided to go ahead with the appointment anyway. I found my dress on this visit, so I then ended up having to drive an hour in each direction for every fitting. But, after all is said and done, I think it was well worth it! I had a great experience from beginning to end. Virginia was an excellent help on that first appointment when I was trying on dresses. It can be a very overwhelming experience, and I had brought an entire entourage of my mom, mother-in-law, aunts and cousins. Everyone had a different opinion. I definitely felt like Virginia made the whole experience a lot easier for me. She was extremely helpful in picking out my dress and keeping me calm (not that this is in her job description!). I ended up getting a dress I absolutely love. And the alterations process was also easy. It was a pleasure every time I went. In fact, when I went the week before my wedding to pick up my dress, I almost felt sad to be saying goodbye. I recommend this place for sure.

The owner was absolutely great. She was very helpful, very knowledgeable, and very professional. She reassured me of the process I would have to go through with my wedding dress and what would have to be done and walked me through it all. They had a nice selection of different designers as well. I was also grateful that they are having a sale, so if you're looking for a dress hurry and go get your dress! The owner was once again very very helpful and fun!

I WOULDN’T GO BACK HERE! PLEASE READ THIS!!! SHOP AROUND!!!! I was looking for a particular dress that I have always wanted since I was younger & this was the 1st place I picked (I regret not looking at other places now). I was looking for a cobalt blue & white dress by Alfred Angelo. I picked this business because this was the closest to my house that carried this particular dress. At the time I went (before they moved to Pompton Lakes) their business was in a rundown mall in East Brunswick. The look on the outside still didn’t deter me from going to look as I tried to keep an open mind. When I arrived in May 2015 (my wedding is June 4, 2016) I spoke to Virginia who had a new girl show me the dress I wanted, but in red. From there it was downhill. Not only did she tell me I lost weight and that was the cause to why the dress was big, my dress was too big on the top; my bust where I “lost weight” even though I went up a full cup size, I never received my veil from May 2015-Feb 2016, there was no one-on-one help, and then she originally said she would pay for $80 of what I needed for alterations but then said the girl who does the alterations is a separate cost and I would have to pay an additional $400+. My wedding is now in 81 days and I have an actual seamstress (who is only charging me $200) for the alterations. I did finally receive my veil on March 3rd, which was sent out on Feb 29th after going there on Feb 18th and picking out another veil. The owner, Virginia, is very unprofessional & I doubt her “experience” now having to deal with all the issues with my dress and veil. If I were to do it all over again I would have shopped around for someone else who carried that dress. It wasn’t worth the aggravation. I don’t want anyone to go through what I went through. I paid $841 for my dress and it will fit better once I go to someone else. I am beginning to think that she measured me wrong, ON PURPOSE, so she could charge me more for alterations & get a kickback.

Bridal Center Boutique responded with the following comments:

I am sorry that you feel that I was unprofessional, but you have left out in this whole message and important for all brides to understand is that these dresses are not custom made. We measure three parts of your body bust, waist and hips and we order to how the dress is styled. Your dress we had to take all three measurements into consideration. If we ordered you a smaller size the hips would have been to tight. I agree that the top was way to big, but your hips fit perfectly. As for the alterations, all brides are under no obligation to do the alterations with us. At the time of you coming into to try your dress on when it arrived in my store the dress fit you the same way it fit you when you came in. You took dress home without any issues. You called me about veil, which I agree was never ordered. You came in to the store in February to get cost of alterations and pick out veil, at that time and the only time did I hear about issue about dress not fitting you right, which I tried to explain to you. I even remeasured you after you telling me you gained weight, but the measurements showed you lost weight. Again I am sorry that you feel so strongly about a dress that was ordered correctly.

Bridal Center Boutique was one of the only Maggie Sottero retailers in the area, and I am so glad we found Virginia and her team! From the day we ordered my wedding dress, to all of the fittings and even the final fitting, Virginia and her team were always professional, responsive, and we felt we were in good hands. I felt like Virginia and her team truly cared about me and my big day and making sure my dress was flawless. Thank you Virginia and the Bridal Center Boutique Team!! Best of luck at the new location!

Every time I'm in here, I feel rushed. I ordered my bridesmaid's dress a few months ago. It came in on time but the owner, Virginia, ordered me a 12 instead of the 8 she had said she was ordering. (I am usually a 4). When I was in initially, she had said I was measuring about an 8 but put down a 12 on the order. Needless to say, I picked up the dress and it's no returns, no exchanges so I'm screwed and need major alterations. It's way too big and way too long. I refuse to get them to do the alterations. I will never go back to this place. I should have known since it was in that sketchy deserted shopping center.

Virginia was an absolute pleasure to work with! She bent over backwards to make sure my dress and my bridesmaids' dresses were perfect. My one bridesmaid was 8 1/2 months pregnant for my wedding and Virginia assured us that we would not have a problem with the dress, and she was right! We just held the fitting as late as possible and the seamstress was able to make the dress flow beautifully!
