My mother and I stopped by their consignment store (just a couple doors down) just for fun on our way to check out some other vendors. It was the first dress store I had seriously looked at in person. The woman at the store was very helpful in suggesting a few, including the one that had peaked my interest right off the bat. You wouldn't believe it, but the very first dress I tried on ended up being "the one." I tried on others, and she was very polite and patient. It was fun, and although a relatively quick stop, I felt quite pampered. We looked up my dress online once we got home. It was in PERFECT condition for being used, but was still less than half the original price!

They have a line of dresses that are designer, but still at a good price range. They also have the best prices for veils that I've seen. Jewelry if very pretty, but a little expensive. The help I received though was wonderful, very personal, and low stress and low pressure.

I actually found my wedding gown at the Brides of France Consignment shop. It was a top-of-the-line Vera Wang dress that had never been worn, and at a tiny fraction of what the dress was actually worth. While it was pure luck that I found my perfect dress in the Consignment section of Brides of France, I wanted to give credit to the women that worked there. I happened to be the only one in there that afternoon, and they treated me like royalty. So helpful, and so sweet. Since I unexpectedly found the dress of my dreams (a day sooner than I was planning to go shopping with my mom, future mother-in-law and maid of honor), they helped me surprise them the next day with the dress I had bought. I was able to keep it at the shop, and they had it already in the dressing room before we got there. So I tried on other dresses, and the shop owner helped narrow down features of other dresses that everyone liked - just leading the way for my actual dress - then I surprised them by telling them I had actually bought a dress and put it on. It was so much fun, and I couldn't have done it without the help of the women there. They just made the whole experience so personal. I'd absolutely recommend Brides of France for any wedding-related attire or jewelery needs!

I loved the experience of shopping at a smaller boutique store and finding my one-of-a-kind dress. The space is smaller so you're not going to get the huge showroom scene similar to "Say Yes To The Dress", but those were too overwhelming [for me] anyway. Brides of France was a much more intimate setting and perfect. I fell in love with a Paloma Blanca dress, but wanted to change a part of it and we worked with all the lovely pieces in the store and decided upon a beautiful gold brooch that looked beautiful with the silk. It was a fabulous experience and recommend this store to anyone looking for a one of kind shopping experience.

I found a beautiful non-traditional dress for our wedding. My primary contact there was extremely helpful. My only issue was that there weren't enough dresses off the rack to then be altered. The on-site seamstress for alterations were over-priced, but they connected me with a more affordable option.

Brides of France was the first place we looked at when searching for my wedding dress - and the service we received there far exceeded anything we saw at the other stores. Their consignment quality is incredible. The customer service was even better! We were so taken care of, and I left there with the most beautiful dress - with the ability to consign it back after the wedding! It was one of the best experiences throughout planning my wedding.

The staff was extremely helpful and accommodating. I never felt pressure from them throughout my dress shopping experience. After I purchased my dress they readily recommended a seamstress to me who did an absolutely wonderful job. Overall, I could not have asked for a better experience!

I did not have a good sense of what direction I wanted to go with my dress. I went in to the shop with a few of my family members and met Bonnie. She chose a few dresses based on some of the things I mentioned that I liked and didn't like and I ended up falling in love with the first dress I tried on! She just had a vision of what would complete the look and we bought it all. The dress actually set the tone of my whole wedding, Hollywood glam! The guests LOVED my dress the day of and so did I. I have never felt so beautiful and comfortable. Thank you BOF and Bonnie!
