I ordered a nonstock dress for my bridesmaids. They not only matched, but beat the price I found online.

Bridal Elegance is an old building and does not have the atmosphere of where I expected to pick out the dress for the biggest day of my life. They also don't work on commission so even though you don't get a high pressure sales technique.... It was near impossible the first few times we walked in there to get any help! (Especially because they don't take appointments). I purchased from this store because ultimately they had the dress I wanted and I couldn't find it anywhere else in the area. After the purchase however their staff was great and the owner worked with me when I special ordered a veil that I ultimately decided I wanted to change.

Bridal Elegance and Formalwear responded with the following comments:

Thank you for your comments as the only way we can improve is hearing from our customers. I am sorry to hear that you were not helped as much as you could have the first time coming to our venue. We don't take appointments because we have had suggestions that people have gone elsewhere and even though they had an appointment they still were waiting too long to be helped. At Bridal Elegance I do try and staff for the unexpected crowds but it is a difficult task when trying to control how many people are coming with each bride. We strive for the best Customer Service and thank you for bringing this to my attention. I may change my policy in the future and take appointments but as it stands today we do not require them.

I had a good experience while shopping for my wedding dress. The ladies that I worked with were helpful and kind. Karen who works in the tuxedos part of the store is amazing!

I purchased my wedding gown from them after my sister used them for her wedding gown, bridesmaids dresses, and both mothers purchased their gowns as well. I also used them for my bridesmaids and my mom's dress. I love the fact that you don't need an appointment, can bring who you want to help you in and out of the dresses (or have them help), and can stay as long as you need. They were willing to show me different veils, belts, jewelry, shoes, etc. to change the look of the same dress to suit my style and preference. They also were nice enough to price match for my dress and my bridesmaids. They always remembered my name and treated me like I was a long time friend. My fiance and I were only engaged for 10 months and other stores were trying to pressure me into picking a dress as they stated there wouldn't be enough time otherwise. I never felt that from them.

I used Bridal Elegance for my wedding dress, my bridesmaids' dresses, the tuxes, and my mom bought her dress there as well. I loved the laid back feel of the place. Most bridal shops make one of their salespersons be in the room with you and that you only have so much time and can only try on so many dresses...that is not the case with Bridal Elegance. I was able to try on as many dresses as I wanted and my maid of honor was able to help me in and out of each dress. They were very helpful while i was narrowing down my choices to find my dress!! There were some communication errors as my day got closer; but they worked to correct all of the problems and everyone in my wedding had the correct clothes in the correct colors for the day of the wedding.

I always feel like giving vendors a 5/5 rating is a little over the top because nothing is perfect, but I have absolutely no complaints with the service I received. From the moment I stepped in the store, I was treated with respect and kindness, which is certainly not something I can say for all the bridal stores I visited prior. We didn't have to have an appointment which was very convenient, and our consultant was still able to make plenty of time to help us (week days are definitely a little quieter though so go then if you can). They were able to help me find dresses to try that had the specifics of what I was looking for while helping me step out of my box a little too... helping me find the PERFECT dress. Being that I was living out of town, they made it very convenient for me with payments as well as coordinating final pick up the week of my wedding. The seamstresses they have are also phenomenal and reasonably priced. I definitely recommend them!

The dress was beautiful, the seamstress was great but when you walk in they aren't very friendly. Also, my shoes didn't come in for 4 months!

Bridal Elegance and Formalwear responded with the following comments:

Sorry you think you were mislead but the alterations are contracted out and we have nothing to do with their payments. They post signs in all the fitting rooms that the payments are cash or check only. They also discuss this with you when making your second appointment.

I bought my wedding dress as well as the bridesmaid dresses and tuxes at Bridal Elegance. Karen, in the tux shop was great to work with! She really knows her stuff and was very helpful in planning the right colors to go with our dresses and finding the best options for us. I also used their seamstress for all of my wedding gown alterations and she did an AMAZING job. I had three appointments because she wanted my dress to fit me perfect. Her years of experience really paid off because she knew exactly where to take my dress in so that it fit perfectly. I was so pleased with how my dress fit, that I would highly recommend getting wedding gown alterations done there. I got so many compliments. My dress started very big on me and I cannot believe how the final result looked like the dress was made exactly for me. Bridal Elegance was also able to match the price of my bridal gown with the cheaper price from a store in Green Bay so that it was more convenient for me to get it at Kaukauna which is closer to home.
