I went to many places to look for my wedding gown and nothing compared to my experience at Camille La Vie. You have to make an appointment to try ok gown but the best part about my experience was the professionalism and personal attention I received since I was the only one trying on. (Why you need an appointment) there was a huge variety in the store, I went to the one in the pallisades mall in NY. The prices varied and were very budget friendly. I thought my gown would cost 3times as much as I actually paid for it. You can even save more money if you are on a tight budget by buying one of the floor dresses instead of having a new one made. The dresses in the floor are in pristine condition as you can't clamp the dresses to fit your body since they sell them. The women was very friendly and didn't Rush me at all. After I found my dress she then helped me with a veil and jacket for my dress. We looked at head pieces, shoes and jewelry as well but I didn't need jewelry and didnt see anything I liked for shoes or headpieces. They had a large variety just nothing I liked for my big day!

The girls at Camille la Vie did a wonderful job finding me an affordable dress within my budget. I couldn't have been happier for under $700 I found the dress of my dreams and didn't have to break the budget to do so. Thank you!

Beautiful dress and for a great price. Since this place is in the soon to be closed Springfield mall there was very little traffic, but the quality was amazing. The staff was incredibly helpful and had great insight. Much much better than going to David's Bridal and dealing with all of the crowds!

This is the second dress our family has ordered online for a prom (the other was from a different website). All the misgivings and concerns I had with ordering online were proven false with the previous dress and proven true with this dress from Camille LaVie. Please let me say that one of my daughters bought a formal dress from a Camille LaVie store two years ago and was happy with the quality and fit. This time around we saw the "Illusion Back Halter Dress" in a local boutique store two sizes larger than what my daughter would wear; however, she still got an idea of how it would fit and the quality of the dress. We ordered it online since there are no Camille LaVie stores within five hours of our home, and the dress was $75 cheaper with Camille LaVie compared with the boutique shop. Now I am wondering if it is actually the same dress. First, the dress was back ordered, originally to be available in February and then March. When I called to ask when exactly in March the dress would be available I was told they don't know, just sometime in March. I was concerned about the time frame because I was fairly certain this dress was going to require hemming. When the dress arrived the bust area was wrinkled and the cups were very noticeable because the fabric was thin and the cups did not cover the bust area, which ruined the pretty detailing of that part of the dress. When we took the dress to our local seamstress for hemming I asked if she thought the bust area would look better after steaming. She said steam would not get the wrinkles out as the problem was the seams being too wide and not cleanly stitched right in the middle of the bust. This is not apparent in the photo online, if indeed the online dress is sewn in the same way. The seamstress suggested replacing the cups and trimming the seams to minimize that unattractive, eye-catching detail. When it came to hemming we looked at the picture of the dress compared to the actual dress and realized that in the picture the three layers of fabric are all tapered at the same angle. The dress we received had only the top layer tapered, with the two layers underneath cut straight with no angling, which means that the "high/low" effect doesn't show with this dress. The carelessness with these small details really spoils what could be a stylish and elegant dress. In order to make it wearable we are going to need to spend a considerable amount of money. What makes this even more maddening is Camille LaVie's "no return" policy, where they only allow for size exchanges, no returns. So what is a customer to do with a dress that is misrepresented in the pictures online??? No returns??? The only thing I know for sure about this online store is that they just lost a customer.

After being at Davids Bridal and Priscilla of Bostons for hours I thought I was never going to find my dress! I had a budget and did not want to go over it! Yes your wedding dress should be beautiful, but I did not want to pay thousands of dollars for a dress I was going to wear once for about 4 hours. One of my bridesmaids suggested that we go to Camille's. At this point I didn't care where we went I just needed my dress! The minute I walked into the bridal section I saw my dress! I knew it was it the moment I saw it! I tried it on and it was perfect! It fit my body beautifully! I started crying, my mom and bridesmaids started crying and that was that. I got to prove to my mom and bridesmaids that I didnt need to spend thousands of dollars on a dress! If you take it a couple of weeks before the wedding they alter it and stem it for you. Brides with a budget definitively need to check this place out!

It was refreshing to finally find a wedding dress vendor that didn't insist on following me every step of the way.

I understand they have to guard the dresses in many of the big stores. But I just wanted to pick dresses off the rack and try them on in peace.

Camille really responds to what their customers are looking for. Their selection was good, compared to other stores. I am still wishing I could find more different styles in dresses, but this was a great place.

The price was also fantastic. I am so glad I found Camille La Vie

The dresses are beautiful but in order to get a brand new one you have to order it and that is only if there are none in the store. I ended up picking up my dress from the woodbridge store and they did fix anything that was wrong with it after I went back a couple times. I loved my dress in the end but I did have to go through some loops to get it perfect for my big day

I loved the dress that I purchased - it was gorgeous and exactly what I was looking for! However, dealing with Camille for the alterations was a DISASTER. They delayed the fitting 2 times and used the excuse that their tailor was sick when in reality she was not (as stated by herself). to make matters worse, the 3rd time I visited the store - ONE WEEK BEFORE THE WEDDING - they hadn't done anything. I ended taking it somewhere else. Believe it ornot, the only thing Camille did was refund my prepayment for the alterations. Although I loved the dress, I would never want to deal with Camille again. BEWARE!

I love this store they have all types of dresses. I went to look at wedding dresses and OMG they were beautiful. They were a little on the pricy side, but well worth it. I mainly went to this store because they have a huge selection of brides maid dresses that are sexy and come in all styles. My brides maids found everything they wanted at this store on a low budget.

The first dress that I put on was the one that I chose. I looked around a little bit to make sure, but I ended up choosing my first dress. It was perfect for the price and I loved it. Also, after signing an account with them, I received a discount coupon in the mail which helped me to buy my veil and headpiece. Their selection of dresses really is great and they have wonderful dressing rooms.
