I have nothing but great things to say about Brides of Florida! Several of my friends and my sister purchased their wedding dress here. My mom bought her dress to my sister's wedding here as well. Everyone is very friendly and professional. They have a wonderful selection of styles and I luckily found exactly what I was looking for. If you're looking for your wedding dress, go to Brides of Florida!

I have had two dress fittings and was pleased with how attentive the staff was! They truly care about making the experience as wonderful as possible! Their prices are also extremely reasonable. I have recommended several of my friends here, who have also had great experiences and found their wedding dress.

The dress selection was great and they have competitive prices for the same brands and gowns available elsewhere in the area. They were very friendly and professional every time I visited the store. The dress and alterations were perfect until I picked up my dress. Dress arrived when they said it would, was gorgeous, perfectly steamed and alterations were done very well. My only issue for not rating them a solid 5.0 is that they added in boning after my final fitting when told not to which made the dress too small the day of my wedding. The dress barely fit and was definitely not perfect like it was less than a week before when the alterations had already "been finalized." They are great and I would buy from them again, just make sure to try on the dress before walking out with it in case anything was done after "nothing further needed to be done."

BUYER BEWARE!
This vendor bites off more then they can chew. Promises many things but refuses to deliver. My dress had tears at the bottom and asked for it to be fixed. I was told not to worry. On wedding day the tears were still there. I was frantic when I put on my dress and realized it! The owner will tell you whatever you want to hear in order to make a sale and drag you along. You are just a number at brides of florida I've heard the horror stories of the many bad experiences from other brides but decided to go there anyways because another vendor referred me there. I should have listened to the stories. One bride had to take her dress to another seamstress because they completely messed it up two weeks before the wedding. Another bride purchased a custom veil and when she opened up the garment bag the night before her wedding realized it wasn't her custom veil but a standard one. One bridesmaid dress came in the week of the wedding in a wrong color. Sometimes it's best to pay a little bit more money to get better quality service. You get what you pay for ! Please don't take my word for it, do the research before spending any money at this place. Read both sets of reviews on the new location and old location.

Thank you so much for going above and beyond! I bought my dress back 8 months ago and decided to alter it the last month trying to loose as much weight as possible.. The alteration lady did an awesome job and the overall fee for the alterations on the dress was 150.. My sister paid 600 for that for her dress at David's bridal so to me that was amazing! Super accommodating and they even altered my moms dress so we didn't have to pay so much at the store were we got hers... Would totally recommend 100%

The dress my daughter picked out was beautiful it was a Maggie Sottero.(Expensive for us). We picked it out on 7/19/2013 it was a trunk show date. We were told we had FREE alterations and $200.00 worth of credit for accessories in the shop since we came on a trunk show day. We also came from Port Saint Lucie, FL almost 3 hours away for this. My daughter picked out a dress, they told us when we come to get the dress come an spend the whole day since we live so far and the dress will be altered in 1 day and we did that. In the mean time my daughter ordered a dress for me(mother of the bride) without me knowing it was a surprise for me). We go to pick up her dress and to have the dresses altered (mine was to be altered free also she was told, we have it on the text message). Now after all the alterations are finished we get told we owe $1,341.40. $806.40 was for the balance of the dress that's fine but its $150.00 for alterations. We said no alterations were FREE they said no alterations were $150.00 the girl would work for free today. I said that's not what you said when we came here to buy the dress, we left very unhappy. We tried calling back at least 7 - 10 times and the receptionist said she(Maggie Mgr) just left the bldg or not here one time she answered the phone realized it was my husband an hung up. I said tell Maggie we take this to small claims court an we will. These are people who do not keep their word. So BUYER BEWARE if you shop in this store. The other issue was all of a sudden nobody spoke ENGLISH. I have had many say my daughters dress was so beautiful where did you get it, I told them I wont even tell you because we have nothning but trouble and we traveled so far.

I really thought I had found a gem when I find this shop for my dress.... boy was I wrong!

It was a horror show from the moment I went to my first fitting. They had the right dress but in the wrong color! It took a week but then they fixed it... only problem, they didn't have my vail. It was supposed to be made to match my dress. I ordered the lace pieces and everything. I didn't get the vail until my wedding day and instead of it being the custom made vail it was the stock, crappy one that they put on me at the store. They are so irresponsible! Your wedding dress is very important, don't risk something happening by trusting them!

Brides of Florida is fantastic!!! They didn't have a sample of the dress I wanted, but no problem! They got it for me to try on :) It turned out to be my dress :) I loved it. There were some alterations I wanted done like changing the corset back to a zipper and changing the sleeves. They did it with no problem. Not only was it not a problem, but it was done beautifully. They know what they are doing!!! Also, they are so much easier to get to than any stores on Miracle Mile plus the prices are 100% better. Get your dress there. You wont' regret it!!!!

I purchased the Carolina by Maggie Sottero from Brides of Florida. I wore my dress with a cathedral length veil which I rented from Brides of Florida. From the moment I walked into Brides of Florida I was greeted by friendly and knowledgable staff. They have an amazing talent in assisting you with picking out the right dress for your body type and budget. Macky, the owner, is an amazing person. She is prides herself on making sure her Brides are happy. I will never forget her amazing spirit and friendly nature. She made my shopping experience less stressful and reassured me every step of the way! Thank you to everyone at Brides of Florida for making me look and feel like a princess on my Wedding day!

I had looked all over south florida for my specific Maggie Sottero dress and this is the place I found it. They were lovely to work with the day that I bought my dress and the price couldn't have been better. I was a little disappointed with the fact that they did not call me when my dress came in, I had to call to follow up. Furthermore, when I wanted to come pick up my dress they didn't have it because they only pick up dresses from their warehouse once a week. So I had to pick it up a week later. I would still recommend the store, they had a great selection, just be prepared to make a few phone calls.

They offered the best price, Mackie is a doll to work with, and I loved the price of my gown.

The moment I walked in, I felt like I was getting married the next day. The service is impeccable. David got to know ME and EVERY SINGLE PERSON I brought into that shop with me. He made my experience feel so special. My most fond moment was when he knew the final dress I tried on was for me and personalized it as my own. I love every moment of my experience. David was honest with every gown I tried on and it felt like I was in a fashion show! I was the queen for the day, and David had everything to do with that. Don’t hesitate to go to Brides of America! He made my dream dress come alive and I know he will do the same for everyone else too!

This was the first place I went to to try on dresses. I tried on several of them but one of them stuck out as my favorite as well as the favorite of my mom, mother in law and friend who were with me. I was a bit sticker shocked since I really had no idea how much wedding dresses cost and decided to keep looking. I looked at a few more places including Davids Bridal and a couple of the stores on miracle mile. Nothing compared to that one dress I had seen at Brides of Florida. The quality of that dress became obvious to me after I tried on other dresses at other stores- the material of the dresses at the other stores felt like plastic, they were hard to move in, they clung to me in the wrong places, they just looked so terrible, and they cost the same or more than the one I liked at Brides of Florida. I went back to Brides of Florida a few days later and tried on the dress again and this time, knowing what was out there, I fell in love with it. The quality of the material, the detail and the stitching is just incredible. Everyone at the wedding told me how beautiful the dress was. I felt like a princess all night long.

Brides of Florida was where I found my one perfect dress for my wedding. The ladies there truly listened to what I was looking for in a dress. The seamstress was in house and very talented at her job. Brides of Florida is a great choice for girls in Miami that are looking for a great designer dress without the Miracle Mile price.

My first experience in the store was great. Idalia helped me and I found my dress! She told me they were able to make my dress into a sweetheart neckline and add another aplique to the other top of dress. Well they made it a sweetheart but the cut wasn't perfect. It took them 3 times to get it right! Then apparently you cannot order another aplique for the other side of dress and I wasn't told this. Instead they never told me anything until I noticed something was missing from the dress! So I went back to an original pic and they took all the crystals off the back and put it where the other aplique was supposed to go! So I picked up my dress a few days before my wedding I feel like the overall quality of the alterations were terrible! I mean crystals and loose thread falling off my dress and a seam where the dress had rooching. Lastly at my wedding every time I sat down the bustle came undone! It was beginning to really get annoying! Then my button came completely off where a friend had to safety pin the back of the dress! Really!? Like a bride should really have to go through all of that! Really disappointed in the final product After paying $2000 there!

I mean crystals and loose thread falling off my dress and a seam where the dress had rooching. Lastly at my wedding every time I sat down the bustle came undone! It was beginning to really get annoying! Then my button came completely off where a friend had to safety pin the back of the dress! Really!? Like a bride should really have to go through all of that! Really disappointed in the final product After paying $2000 there! Read less

This is one of the best places to find and/or order your dress. I had originally found my dress at a store in Miracle Mile but they were charging $$$ so my friend suggested Brides of Florida. They were able to order my dress for almost $1000 less than what I had found it for. I had ordered my dress 8 months before my wedding date - my dress didn't arrive until 2 weeks before the big day!!!!! I wasn't a happy camper but luckily they got straight to work altering my dress. The seamstress' were good but they weren't that friendly. Thank God for Macky!!! She is heaven sent!! She knew exactly what I wanted, what needed to be done and she also knows how to calm your nerves down when you're only 3 days away from your wedding day and still altering your dress. I would only recommend this store because of Macky.

I found Brides of Florida online because I had my heart set on a Maggie Sottero dress. After going to the typical bridal shops on Miracle Mile and being met with rudeness and unprofessionalism, I got to Brides of Florida and it was a breath of fresh air. The staff here is AMAZING! Everyone is so nice and they go out of there way to find your perfect dress and to get your alterations just right. The quality of the dresses here are wonderful and they are much more affordable than those boutiques you find on Miracle Mile. You can find the same dress by the same designer for at least $100-$200 less. My cousin ended up getting her dress here a few months later and she told me the same thing that the experience was great. If you want great wedding dress buying experience you should DEFINITELY go here!

The ladies were extremley helpful during my 1st appointment. Putting on different viels with each dress I tired on, turning down the lights so I could see what it would look like during the reception. Very attentive and sweet. I was told during my 1st appointment that my dress would come in October, that the balance would be due when I came in for my 1st fitting, that the alterations would be paid when I finally picked up my dress. What actually happened was that my dress came in an month early, I was pressured to make an appointment for my 1st fitting even though I wanted to wait. I re-scheduled my 1st fitting but then got a call from the owner demanding payment on the balance when I was told it would be due during my 1st fitting. I went for my 1st fitting and told them I wanted the dress to be bigger in the bottom, if I could try it on with a petticoat. They did not have any at that time, I was told to reschedule my fitting for a day they would have petticoats and if I did not like that they could add tule to the bottom. When I can back for a 2nd fitting tule had already been added to the bottom of my dress, I never even got the chance to see what it would look like with the petticoat. My dress looked flat. I was also asked to pay my alterations at this time, which I had been told wuld be due when I picked up my dress. During the second fitting they got the measurement to do the hemming on the bottom. When I came back for my third fitting to check the length, it was still too long. I was told in a very non-chalant matter oh just raise the dress up. They wanted me to wear my dress up as far as it would go touching my armpits! Just so they wouldn't have to go back and do more work on it. Of course I told them no way and they had to go back and fix it. I would still recommend Brides of Florida to any south florida bride that wants a Maggie Sottero dress and does not want to over pay for it.

The staff at Brides of Florida is amazing. I went into the store with a dress I wanted in mind. The staff helped select other styles that might look good on me. Thank God they did! The dress I went to the store in mind with to buy, looked horrible on me. One of the dresses, the staff suggested I try on, however I was opposed to buying, is the one I ended up falling in love with. The dress was soooooo breathtaking. The dress arrived within the timeframe the store told me it would. The alteration process was also very easy. I went into the store only twice to have alterations. I had two fittings and the dress was perfect. The store steamed my dress and veil and had it ready for me to pick-up on time. I went back to the store after the wedding to have it preserved. Overall my experience at Brides of Florida was awesome.

We went to 11 dress stores. I tried on… a million dresses. In my head, I knew what I wanted but it apparently it was harder to find in real life. We got SO LUCKY finding Brides of Florida. We bought the dress in March 2011 during their annual trunk show (discount, goody bag, PERFECT TIMING!). The dress I tried on was almost everything I wanted… sweet heart, ruching, slim a-line, crystals… BUT, it was one shoulder and did not have the crystal trim I wanted around the neckline… Brides of Florida took care of that. Their seamstress can do anything… they took a dress on the rack and made it into MY dress. We had some concerns here and there (not enough crystals here, too big there) and there seemed to be some minor pricing issues (a few times we were told different things about how much things cost or the tax was left out) but I would not have wanted another dress from one of the stores we went to on Miracle Mile FOR THE WORLD. My dress is one of a kind, exactly what I wanted but could not find and Brides of Florida made it happen.

Brides of Florida has beautiful dresses at reasonable prices. However, the staff can at times be a little too opinionated. If I didn't like something I found that they just would attempt to convince me that what I was thinking wasn't the case. Of course, I went with what I liked but it did at times get a little annoying. Before I picked up my dress, weeks before I made sure to tell them to secure the bussel (misspelled i know lol) because 2 of my friends which had purchased their dress from them had the experience that their bussel didn't hold up the day of their wedding and they had to hold the dress the whole night. Apparently, they didn't do a much better job because i held my dress more than half of the night. Very heavy! :( On the positive side, I loved my dress ad everyone at the wedding commented on how pretty it was!! I would recommend this shop to other brides, however, be very clear on what you like or do not like.

WOW! is all I can say. What an amazing dress. I was soooo pleased and extremely happy with my dress. Not only was it a new style, but I was the first to have that dress in satin. It definitely was a dream. Thank you Macky and all the girls there for you help and flexibility. I had chosen another style back in May, and the more I saw myself in the dress, the more I realized it just wasn't me. I called Macky in November and she immediately helped. I went in and she allowed me to change my dress to te one that I really fell in love with. It was a dream. The only little set back that I must mention is that the bustle was suposed to have 2 buttons and strings, and it only had one. :( So it was a bit of a pain to have to carry the train around while I dance, but I made the absolute best of it. I didn't sit to rest at all. Than you Brides of Florida.

I had a great experience at Brides of FL! I instantly knew what dress I wanted after looking at the Maggie Sottero website; however, I went home to Maryland to try on dresses because that's where my family lives. I tried on the dress from the Sottero Destinations collection AD3395 at a dress shop in Alexandria, VA and knew it was "The Dress," but the price was not right: $1200. I thought to call down to Brides of FL to see if they could do better for me. They had a sample of this dress for $892! I returned south, looked at it and bought it from them! What a value! Macky, the store manager, also assured me that they would never charge more than $150 for fittings. This is between $50 and $150 cheaper than what the average bridal salon in MD charges (according to many of my friends back home who paid this outrageous price!)

I had one hang up, I had to move across the country unexpectedly three months before our wedding. Though it was against salon policy to start fitting me early for my dress, Brides of FL accommodated me with a fitting before I left FL. The dress fit perfectly and they kept my veil safe, borrowed from my aunt that she dropped off while on vacation prior to the wedding. They are a very very busy bridal salon in a small space so that's why I knocked down professionalism a little bit. Because it's so small, you are there in the middle of the day to day goings on they have with running their business. However, everything else more than outweighs this small factor.

I bought my dress here and worked with MJ. She was great!!! I purchased a Maggie Sottero dress. The original design had patches of lace and others without. I had a vision of an all-lace dress. MJ ordered the extra lace, the seamstress filled in all the patches, and my dream dress became a reality. It was so much work, and she did an amazing, amazing job. During my wedding reception, several people asked me who the designer was. I got so many compliments on it.

The team at BOF was professional, on time for all appointments, and responsive to any questions / concerns. My dress was ready on time, and it was beautifully presented to me. I rented the veil for $75. They also offer gown cleaning and preservation. I dropped it off after the wedding and for $150 the dress was like new again and shipped to my front door.

PS - You can find the same dresses here that you will find at Coral Gables bridal - - for hundreds less!!!

I highly recommend Brides of Florida if you are looking for a dress from Maggie Sottero. They have a huge selection and the best prices, do NOT go to miracle mile, they will rip you off. They took care of me and made me feel like family, they made sure my dress fit me perfectly, and the best part is that they rent you the veil! So you don't have to spend an extra $500 on top of what you are already spending.

Thank you so much for not only helping me find THE perfect wedding dress, but for being there with me every step of the way to help me make alterations and even accessory decisions that had nothing to do with the services you typically offer. They treated me fantastically, spoiled me with love and attention, and helped me end up with the dress of my dreams for a price that was more reasonable than I would have expected. WOW! WOW! WOW!!

I loved this place from the second i walked in! It is not quite big, which i liked and the assistance was amazing! I showed them some pictures of the kind of dress i wanted and they quickly started pulling out styles that were similar. I fell in love with EVERY single dress but at the end I had to chose one. They are very professional and everything is done in a timely manner! They have a wide selection of Maggie Sotero dresses which are beautiful!!!!

I found this quaint Bridal Salon through the internet and was exceptionally pleased when I went and tried on dresses and matched the price tags to the boutiques on Miracle Mile, the same dress at Brides of Florida was 30%+ off. The ladies were sweet and nice, my only reason for not giving 5 Stars is that I feel they were not clear about "Alteration Costs" while their Alteration Costs do seem to be cheaper than at any other Salon, I found $25 to put Bra Insert in a Dress to be excessive, my mother could have put the $2 Cups in for free. All in All you they have a great selection of GORGEOUS! Fantasy Dresses any bride will love. Service was good, just watch out for those fees that aren't disclosed in the initial consultation.

I can't say enough good things about them! Wow, they are amazing. First, they helped me get my dress for HALF the price they wanted to charge me at Coral Gables Bridal. The alterations were great and quick. Only thing that happened was I didn't like my dress (NOT their fault). But with one month left before the wedding, they helped me find my dream dress, get it to me in less than a week and did the alterations perfectly on time. They are very personable and helpful and I would highly recommend them. Beautiful display with Maggie Sottero dresses with much better prices and service then miracle mile! My mom got her dress here also and had a great experience as well.

They did a rush order at no charge to me, worked around my schedule (I live 3 hours away from the shop) and did the fitting, alterations and final fit and the dress came home with me all in one day! Amazing! Fantastic customer service. My mother even got her dress for the wedding and the custom made her a matching bolero to accompany the dress just 2 weeks before the wedding.

The ladies at Brides of Florida were my life savers. I had the hardest time deciding on which dress to select. So one day I went back to their store by myself and as soon as I walked in the door they could see the stress on my face. They helped me select the most gorgeous Maggie dress ever. They advised me which cut would fit my body best and showed me which dressed were within my budget range. With their advice, I picked it straight from the catalog. They stayed in contact with me till the dress arrived, even got there a day earlier then planned. I was overwhelmingly happy with my dress when I saw it for the first time. They were totally right about how it would fit my body. Their seamstress Cari is an alterations genius. She not only altered my dress, but also my moms, bridesmaids and flower girl dresses. My dress had to be taken in a couple of times due to me losing weight quickly and each time she pulled it off flawlessly. My experience with Brides of Florida was so enjoyable I was a little sad to leave the day my dress could finally come home with me. I'm very grateful to have had such a great experience finding my dress. Brides of Florida made that happen.

Thanks Brides of Florida!!! XO-Elizabeth

I LOVE BRIDES OF FLORIDA!!! I came into the shop after having tried on several dresses in the miracle mile stores. I was at wit's end and told the ladies that I didn't know what I was looking for anymore and that I had to start from scratch. They took one look at me and started picking out dresses for me. I couldn't believe it when I found my dress after only trying two dresses! I was greeted with heartfelt smiles as soon as I walked in. I was treated like family the entire time. They recognized me and addressed me by name everytime I was there, which made me feel very special. They were organized, quick, efficient, and very affordable. Alterations were spot on after the first fitting. My dress arrived on time. I rented my veil and headpiece from them too and both were in perfect condition and available the day I picked them up. I love these ladies!!! Thanks BOF!!!

I started off doing the Coral Gables routine but truly couldn't find anything that i fell in love with. The one gown i found that i kinda liked was way over budget A friend recommended that i go visit Brides of Florida. My experience was nothing but the best. The staff is super attentive and professional. They asked me the right questions and new exactly what i wanted off the bat. I couldn't believe the selection of beautiful gowns they had and all were right on budget. I ended up falling in love with a stunning mermaid gown by Maggie Sottero. The alterations were perfect considering that i had gained a little weight they still managed fit me into it to the T. They also gave me the option to rent my veil and headpiece to save some money, which no other shop would do. I would recomend them to any bride that wants great service and beautiful gowns at afforable rates. They truly work with everyone and are a pleasure to work with. I am so happy i got my gown there and a great experience as well. Thank you BOF!

I had many highs and lows with Brides of Florida, but when push came to shove they were highly responsive and made all my wedding day wishes possible! I originally went to BOF because they had all the Maggie Sottero lines at extremely affordable prices. I had gone to the other store in Coral Gables that had Maggie gowns and received deplorable service, to the extent that I refused to buy my gown at that shop! I am a plus size woman and Mackie (owner of BOF) was quite understanding of the fears we ladies face when buying a gown that we cannot try on! Mackie carries a large size of all her lines so that we can try it on and get an idea of how that cut will look on our figures! This really put me at ease. I ended up buying two gowns from BOF: the principal gown was from Casablanca Bridal and a changing gown from Maggie Sottero destinations.

I am so happy for the recommendation of the Casablanca Bridal gown... I looked like a princess! When the gown first arrived it was a size too large as the company mistakenly made an exposed corset when we had ordered a hidden corset. The alterations lady was great to work with! She removed the corset, installed a zipper and still created a corset effect! Furthermore she also had to create a bustle for a double cathedral length train and did not even bat an eye! Upon receiving the gown, I realized that I was not comfortable exposing so much of my chest and arms in a church wedding and we ordered a bolero jacket from Casablanca... it was beautiful! It raised the dress to a whole new level. I never did take the bolero off all night since I loved it so much!

Here is where the BOF service really came into play. About 9 weeks before the wedding, and after trying on the bustled Casablanca gown, I realized I would not be able to dance all night due to the weight of the gown. I contacted Mackie about this problem and with the style number of a Maggie gown I had seen. Now I will admit that desperation had me looking around the internet for any shop in the country that had the dress in stock... and no one had it or could order it in time! Mackie called me back before end of day and SHE GOT THE GOWN!

Now the dress did arrive 9 days after delivery was promised, but this was not Mackie's fault as it was delivered mistakenly to a shop in California! When the dress finally arrived it was Tuesday, 3 days before the wedding, and a size too small (I know, I ran the alterations gamut)!. However, everyone was very calm and in turn that kept me calm! I came in for a second fitting the following afternoon and a lot of the sizing problem was resolved. I was able to pick up my dress on Thursday at 1pm and it fit perfectly!

I will be forever grateful to Mackie, MJ and Massiel for making my wedding day a wonderful reality!

I had many highs and lows with Brides of Florida, but when push came to shove they were highly responsive and made all my wedding day wishes possible! I originally went to BOF because they had all the Maggie Sottero lines at extremely affordable prices. I had gone to the other store in Coral Gables that had Maggie gowns and received deplorable service, to the extent that I refused to buy my gown at that shop! I am a plus size woman and Mackie (owner of BOF) was quite understanding of the fears we ladies face when buying a gown that we cannot try on! Mackie carries a large size of all her lines so that we can try it on and get an idea of how that cut will look on our figures! This really put me at ease. I ended up buying two gowns from BOF: the principal gown was from Casablanca Bridal and a changing gown from Maggie Sottero destinations.

I am so happy for the recommendation of the Casablanca Bridal gown... I looked like a princess! When the gown first arrived it was a size too large as the company mistakenly made an exposed corset when we had ordered a hidden corset. The alterations lady was great to work with! She removed the corset, installed a zipper and still created a corset effect! Furthermore she also had to create a bustle for a double cathedral length train and did not even bat an eye! Upon receiving the gown, I realized that I was not comfortable exposing so much of my chest and arms in a church wedding and we ordered a bolero jacket from Casablanca... it was beautiful! It raised the dress to a whole new level. I never did take the bolero off all night since I loved it so much!

Here is where the BOF service really came into play. About 9 weeks before the wedding, and after trying on the bustled Casablanca gown, I realized I would not be able to dance all night due to the weight of the gown. I contacted Mackie about this problem and with the style number of a Maggie gown I had seen.

I would not recommend Brides of Florida. They canceled my dress alterations because the seamstress decided to go out of town. It was difficult for me to reschedule because i live in the Tampa area. They shipped me my dress and they sent me the wrong veil. When my mom went to the store to pick up the correct veil that "they set aside for me" they didn't have it. So they had to overnight me my veil. It added stress to my wedding planning.

I am so glad that I found Brides of FLorida it was my life saver. I wanted a Maggie gown and I went to Coral Gables like all brides do I am sure and the dresses there were way out of my budget reach. I tryied a gown in a boutique called Coral Gables Brides and the dress was about $1300 not including alterations. I found the same dress in Brides of Florida for about $700 it is way a huge diffrence in price. The boutique she owns is small and not as beautiful as the one's in Miracle Mile but her prices are very reasonable. Mackie and MJ are both amazing they are both so helpful in helping you choose your dress and ordering.l They helped me with my veil and accessories as well. Mackie was wonderful as I changed my wedding date to earlier and she had them send the dress earlier. Thank goodness for that. There are 2 ladies that do alterations one of them is a little older and I was not happy with the bustle she made for me as I was walking one of them broke and I was draking the train and broke the bottom of my dress. I was very upset that I broke the tulle from the bottom and it was very uncomfortable to walk in. The younger girl is so much better to bad she did not do the bustle from the start I am sure it would have been so much better. I recomend this to every bride that wants a designer gown for a fraction of the price.

My dress came out perfect...but it was such a hassle! The woman who owns the business doesn't know what she's doing and is very unprofessional. It was a headache to work with her.

I purchased a Maggie Sottero gown. There were only two places in my area that I found this gown. Brides of Florida and a shop on Miracle Mile in Coral Gables. The price for the gown in Coral Gables was way out of my price range, but by getting it from Brides of Florida it made it totally doable. The store is somewhat small and is definitely not one of the glamorous bridal boutiques, however, the owner and her mother and daughter were very friendly and helpful. In fact it was thanks to her that I even tried the dress on to begin with. I did become slightly concerned because the whole process wasn't really explained to me. Thank goodness that I found the dress with plenty of time because it didn't get ordered when I thought it did and so it ended up arriving later than I had expected. My alterations really came down to the wire with my final fitting and picking of the dress the day before the wedding. Unfortunatley, my bustle came out during the reception. It was quite a hassle trying to dance with my train! I would recommend them because the price is definitely right for this designer's dresses in the Miami area, but make sure that you give yourself enough time for not only the dress to come in, but extra delays and extended alterations. And make sure that your bustle isn't a last minute thing!

Unfortunately, my overall experience with Brides of Florida did not go as hopeful as I thought it would go from my first visit. When I needed to plan in advance to have my first fitting, I would always get the run around as to when the gown would arrive at the store. This was extremely frustrating, since I was not living in Miami. When I had my fitting, my dress needed to get some alterations. The owner assured me the dress would get its alterations in time of my next visit to Miami, which was the week of my wedding. When I called to confirm my dress had its alterations, she assured me again they were completed. When I had my final fitting (5 days before my wedding) I was ready to take it home. When I tried it on to make sure the alterations were fine, NOTHING HAD BEEN DONE TO THE DRESS! The dress' length was the same as it had been 2 months prior when I went in to try on the gown when it arrived. She clearly kept insisting they were done, but my mother and I knew better. The length was the same. No alterations were made.

The owner kept giving me the run around about the progress of the dress. I did not receive my gown until 8:30pm the eve of the wedding day! When she arrived to our hotel room, she assured us it was steamed. When I took it out the bag, it was not and my bridesmaids and I needed to rig a steam job in order to get the wrinkles out (hot steam from the shower, iron,etc), since we were in a hotel suite.

My mom also ordered her dress from B.O.F and it needed alterations done, as well. When it arrived with my wedding gown, it definitely had been steamed right before she dropped it off because when we took it out the bag, it was wet and wrinkled! The day of the wedding, the seam of the alteration was coming apart while my mom was walking down the aisle!

Let me just say, I was a very patient bride and I did not really worry too much throughout the planning of my wedding. However, I could not help but "lose it" every once in a while because of the unprofessionalism of the shop owner the week of my wedding day.

I was very hopeful I would have a good experience, but I definately was disappointed.
