I love this store. My mom and I went together to look at dresses, after having been at an expensive bridal boutique. The service we received here was even better than the expensive store. We spent the afternoon trying on dresses and both Becca and Phyllis helped me try on dress after dress. I think I must have tried on 2-3 dozen, until I found the one. I am so happy with what I found and at an incredible price. The dress had a few spots on it, so they had it cleaned and I picked it up about a week later looking like new. They had an incredible selection of dresses, and great service. The owner is such a sweet lady, my mom and I really enjoyed talking with her all afternoon as I tried on dresses.

I've been bringing prom/bridesmaids dresses to Brides to Be for years, so when it was time to find my wedding dress, it was definitely on my list of boutiques to visit. After visiting a few other shops to get ideas, figure out my size and narrow down style/shape, I stopped in with my mom to browse the racks. I pulled two dresses to try on and the first one was immediately THE one.
The lace gown, with jeweled belt accent, not only fit the picture I had in my had perfectly but was also my exact size and happened to be a never-been-worn sample dress by a high end designer that I had been pulling dream dress pictures from. It was meant to be!
The staff at Brides to Be is AMAZING! All the women that work there are friendly and incredibly knowledgeable. They've given me great ideas to consider for when I go back for alterations, which they also do in-house, and they have a ton of accessory options for me to complete my look.
My mother and I were so excited to share this experience and the fact that we found my perfect dress at a discount is an added bonus. I would highly recommend Brides to Be to any bride!

Highly recommend them for dresses! They had a huge selection and great prices. I found my exact dress in another bridal salon for $600 more. I felt like they had great prices at Brides to Be. I know a few other brides who got their dresses there as well. I only took off points for the alterations. I was not happy with my alterations and ended up bringing it somewhere else to finish it. So definitely look there for dresses, but bring your dress elsewhere for alterations.

Wonderful selection and service, the ladies who work there are all extremely helpful and will help you to find just the right dress. They have a wide range of gowns for brides, mothers-of-the-bride and girls, as well as a nice selection of special-occasion dresses. The prices are very reasonable and their selection is of very high quality (they don't accept anything over 4 years old, so everything they have is relatively current). They carry simple gowns as well as some high-end designers. There is a seamstress who comes in a couple times a week who is very easy to work, with very fair rates for alterations.

I would strongly recommend looking at Brides to Be for your wedding gown! They have a lot of dresses to try and were very helpful to me on my many visits! I found a beautiful Allure gown with Swarovski crystals for a very reasonable price. (It was a sample, not a used dressed; they have both).

I purchased a silk James Clifford gown in an off white color from the designer rack here- Everyone loved it, I received so many complements on it. It was stunning!! The staff is super friendly, and they remember you when you go in there again. If you leave a message, they get right back to you. They even give you reminder calls when stuff is due or ready!!

When I went looking for "the dress" I was open to the idea of a consignment shop, especially if I could find something truly worthwhile. At Brides to Be, I found a designer dress that I could never have afforded otherwise. It's a small shop, but packed to the gills with dresses in all sizes. The ladies who helped me pick out my dress were very helpful, and they sent the dress to be cleaned free of charge after discovering some dirt along the train. However, I opted against using the seamstress there after reading some of the other reviews on Wedding Wire.

Great quality for fabulous prices.
My dress was brand new marked down from $1200 to $400. I used a 15% coupon I found online and the total came to $360.... the woman helping me looked up the original price from the bridal shop they bought it from in Clinton, CT.... the original price of my dress was $3740.00!!!!! What a steal I purchased it for!!

Brides to Be is a great shop, they helped me find my wedding dress within a month of my wedding after a mishap with another store.

HOWEVER, their seamstress, Barbara, RUINED my dress. It fit me like a glove before she touched it and afterwards that hem wasn't cut or sewn straight, the bustle was pulling off of the gown. It didn't fit me at all and looked horrible. I had to bring it to a different seamstress to get it corrected to exactly where the dress was originally sewn. The new seamstress cut the dress open right in front of me and I could not believe that horrible job Barbara did. She used YELLOW thread on a white dress. When I called her to ask for a partial refund she was nothing but non-compliant and rude, denying everything that I said was wrong with the dress. I made it clear I was not happy with the dress before I left with it but it was 3 days before my wedding and felt as though I had no other choice.

Barbara single-handed ruined what was supposed to be one of the greatest experiences of my life.

Oh yea, she then had the nerve to say that I only wanted a refund so I could go on my honeymoon.... Since when will $100-200 pay for a vacation?

I love Brides to Be in Glastonbury!! I went with my mom when I first started looking for a dress. It was the only store I went to and I found my dress on my second trip there. The ladies are lovely and it's a very relaxed place. I ended up with an absolutely beautiful lace dress that cost me less than half of what I would have paid at a regular store. I had so many compliments on it!! My mother and niece got dresses there as well. They have a huge selection and the best part is that everything is affordable. Kleinfeld's it's not though.

I would highly recommend!
