I went to the sample sale they had early 2014. From the gals taking the tickets at the door to the ladies who rang up my purchase, this team was amazing! Professional, fun, organized, and incredibly helpful! I have already recommended Charlotte's to friends and I will be going back for bridesmaids dresses and my accessories! I can't wait!

Charlotte's is amazing in every way! Here's my story: We live 2 hours from Portland. My mother (who I would never have bought a dress without) lives in California. She came up for a few days and the first shop we visited was Charlotte's. My consultant, Skye, pulled a dress I hadn't ever considered before (I had been stuck on a particular designer). I loved it, but wasn't ready to commit yet. My mother and I drove all over the state looking for the perfect dress, but after I'd tried the dress at Charlotte's, my vision of perfect had changed. We didn't have time to go back to Charlotte's before my mom had to return to California, so I had to make my return trip alone. Thank god it was to Charlotte's, or I may have been an emotional wreck! Skye (the same consultant who had pulled my dress) really made me feel like I had my best friend there with me so that I could have the confidence to buy the dress (even without my mom there). There was no pressure to buy, and she made sure I knew that she would never want me to buy something I wasn't absolutely in love with. All of that and we stayed far under my price range! I found a beautiful Justin Alexander dress that not only fits my figure, but my personality as well. Between the selection, atmosphere and Skye's priceless support, I couldn't be happier and recommend them to anyone who even hints at getting married!

GREAT experience!! I would recommend getting the VIP room when you pick out your dress. Bring some girlfriends and have a blast! The gal who helped me was excellent at choosing styles that worked with my body style and stayed within my price range, which wasn't very high. I will always send all of my friends there for wedding attire!

I purchased my dress from Charlottes after visiting many other stores in both Portland and Seattle. They were extremely friendly and helpful and made the experience exactly what I'd hoped for! I've heard wonderful things from my friends who've also had great experiences here. Easily the best place to dress shop in the Portland area :)

I tried a place downtown first with very similar brands but didn't have the "feeling" like this was my boutique or the place I would find the dress. The salesperson seemed more in a rush than like she genuinely cared to help me find my dress. Then I went to Charlotte's and immediately felt at home. Skylar was patient and helpful. I was torn between two dresses and it was her kindness and words that helped me pick. She even wrote me a note after just to say congrats and thank you. If you want a great experience picking your dress, come here! What a great selection, value and service!

My experience with Charlotte's was fantastic, and I would definitely suggest it to other brides.

They give you plenty of space, so that you feel like you are the only bride in the store. The rooms are big and spacious so that your entire group can be in the room with you.

The sales associates are helpful and friendly and really listen to you.

Loved my experience at Charlotte's! After a day of dress hunting and no luck, whether it was unprofessional consultants, trashed sample dresses, or outrageous prices, Charlotte's was a diamond in the rough. My consultant listened to everything I wanted and managed to pull THREE dresses I absolutely loved. I had to decide which dress I loved most. The dresses were great quality and very affordable. The store was clean and the sample dresses looked brand new. I even ended up getting my bridesmaid dresses through Charlotte's too. The only thing I would change is to have an in house seamstress. I had Loraine alter my dress and I was not too impressed. My bustle did not stay up at all and I only had 1 fitting so the fit day of was not perfect.

They were very attentive to my needs. Alex who originally helped me after giving her ideas of what I was looking for brought me great dresses to try on. They let me shift through the dresses and where the was a little miscommunication with steaming/pressing my gown they took care of it right away. I won't be needing another wedding dress ;) but I would highly recommend Charlottes to any bride!

I had a wonderful experience at Charlotte's! I went to two places to look for dresses, and the other place was much less professional or organized. We went to Charlotte's in the afternoon, and the experience was totally different. They asked for my vision and dress inspiration, and went to find me the perfect dress. The dressing rooms are large enough for an entourage, and included a fluffy robe as you waited. Once I found the dress, my salesperson let me play with veils and jewelry until her next appointment showed up. I never felt rushed or pressured.

I went to Charlotte's after initially visiting another general bridal store and was thrilled with the service. The consultant really listened to me and did not try to push her own agenda or dresses. She made my wedding dress fitting experience with my Mom and a friend everything I ever dreamed of. I did not initially buy the dress on the first visit and wanted to try on a few more. After visiting another high end bridal store in downtown Portland I found Charlotte's to be much more personal and friendly. I am a heavier set woman and in the other store I felt as if they were rushing me to get to their next appointment. I came in with specific dresses in mind and after she put me in 5 dresses I had to ask where were the ones I requested. She said they did not have any. I felt as if they did not care to listen or take into consideration my body type. I called Charlotte's back the same day and asked if I could come back in. They were so accommodating and my consultant looked at the pictures of the style I wanted to try on to eliminate and see if that was the route I wanted. She gave me several options and when they did not have a particular dress she improvised and in the end I felt nothing but beautiful at Charlotte's and found my dream dress. I highly recommend Charlotte's not only their customer service, but as a wonderful experience that every bride wants to have when shopping for their wedding dress.

I purchased my wedding dress and my bridesmaid dresses at Charlotte's. My mom, mother-in-law, and two sisters flew in from out of state to help me find my dress, and we went to a few other places. There was no place that was even close to Charlotte's. They had an amazing selection, the people were friendly, and the dressing rooms were huge. Lindsey helped me find dresses that were in my price range (under $1000) and styles I was interested in. I bought a beautiful dress and it came in a month before I expected it to. My bridesmaids dresses were ordered from Charlotte's as well, and they came in early too! I highly recommend Charlotte's.

Since I was a little girl, I knew I would get my wedding dress from Charlotte's. They are very well known in the Portland area and thrive off of their reputation as being "the best in town." I couldn't say it better myself - they simply are THE BEST. The service is unparalleled and the dress selection is amazing! As a wedding planner, I will always send my brides to Charlotte's for the best treatment and the best selection!!!

I really enjoyed the experience of buying my wedding dress from Charlotte's. I found "the" dress right away but only had 4 months until the wedding so there was some concern about whether it would arrive in time. The consultant helped me locate a dress in my size that was available and it arrived in plenty of time (ahead of time actually!). Would recommend to future brides!

It took me two times going to try on their dresses to find the one, even though I had tried on the one my first trip. The girls were all wonderful and you can tell that they want you to find that perfect dress. I loved them so much we got all 6 of my bridesmaids dresses here as well.

Charlotte's was amazing when it came to service and quality of products. I had such an amazing time picking out my wedding dress. The fitting rooms were spacious and relaxing. The staff helped pick out the most beautiful dresses to try and guided me the perfect dress for me. All of my bridesmaids ordered from them as well and loved the outstanding service and amazing gowns.

Charlotte's was the third and final stop on my search for a wedding dress. The consultant was amazing to work with, and helped me to design my own dress. When the dress came in, the staff quickly noticed snags and promptly sent it back in to be fixed before I even laid eyes on it. It was, and is, the most beautiful dress I've ever seen. They helped me find a great alterations lady who did everything at Charlotte's for ease and continuity. They are amazing and I more than recommend them to any bride out there who is looking for a personal experience with tons of options and a lot of care about what you want. They can make anything happen!

I went to Charlotte's after trying on multiple dresses at David's Bridal and not feeling very good about my experience there. Charlotte's was completely different! We had our own private suite where I could try on dresses privately with my family and not parade around in front of everyone else. My consultant was also wonderful! I told her exactly what I wanted so she brought in those dresses, but after I tried on every lace dress in the store she brought in a beautiful taffeta ballgown (which was not what I wanted) and it was absolutely perfect! They really know what will look best on your body. The also worked very hard to stay within my budget, which I very much appreciated!

I LOVED my dress!!! Charlotte's has the best selection in town and they totally worked with me and my budget. Our consultant totally had me pegged right away and even though I went through their website and selected a bunch of favorites, she picked one that she thought I would like and it was THE dress. It was beautiful, well made, and came in exactly when they said it would. It didn't even cost as much as you think it would. I felt like a total princess on my day because I loved my dress so much. There was a small issue with the ordering and Charlotte's totally took care of it and made it right - it was just one of those things, but they were on top of it. I was impressed and loved my experience there.

It's worth mentioning that I went to the most highly rated seamstress in town for my alterations and and more than 3/4 of the dresses in her shop were from Charlotte's.

Bethany made my wedding dress shopping experience amazing. Even though she picked the perfect dress for me on the first trip, it took several months and a dozen other dresses before I made my decision. Regardless of how trying it might have been for her to have to deal with me, she was happy and positive. Even when I went in to pick up my veil, the entire Charolette's family was ohh-ing and ahh-ing, making me feel like a princess. It's an amazing store.

There aren't enough positive adjectives in the English language to describe how great Charlotte's was!

They listened to what I wanted, helped stick to my budget, and assisted my VIPs (mom and sister/maid of honor) in choosing gowns they wanted to see me in. The boutique is gorgeous. The individual dressing rooms give you one-on-one attention and privacy for you and your VIPs. I had one gal help me throughout the entire process - picking the gown, purchasing, accessories, veil, sizing, etc. She kept reminding me to bring in photos after the wedding so she can see! (which I'm doing soon).

Charlotte's is an amazing little wedding boutique. They provide an individualized experience. You get your own private room to try dresses on, which was great and felt a little like a "Say Yes to the Dress" experience (without having to pay 2k+ for my dress). The customer service was always outstanding every time I went in (including staying after closing to let me buy my dress). I felt that the prices were reasonable, but once you find a dress, a would recommend calling other shops for the price. In my case, my dress was $120 less at a different shop, but I really wanted to buy my dress at Charlotte's because of the customer service quality and overall experience. Charlotte's price matched my dress when I told them the price at the other salon. I also did not feel pressure to buy extras like bodice/bra things and such (another salon told me that it was necessary, while my consultant at Charlotte's never brought one up. When I did, she said the corset top I had made it unnecessary). Overall, the experience at Charlotte's cannot be matched and the quality of their dresses are amazing. Prices start at $600 and are much higher quality than anything in a similar price range as David's Bridal.

I never looked at another store again. She never put me in anything outside my price range or convinced me of something I didnt feel comfortable in.

We purchased our daughter's wedding dress and bridesmaid's dresses here after looking at several different shops. The staff was courteous, helpful and professional. The dresses came in on time and everything was just as we had ordered. When my other daughter's were married, we had gone to another shop in the Portland area to buy their dresses, and really did not have very good service. At Charlotte's we had a very good experience and I would recommend this shop to anyone looking for a wedding dress.

I shopped at a few other locations before going to Charlotte's. I'm sort of a tom boy, so I felt so out of place at the totally public places like David's Bridal where I often felt awkward and rushed. It was so embarrassing for me to be on display for the whole store! It was such a different experience at Charlotte's- it was intimate, at our own pace, and relaxing. Our consultant, Melissa, was such a sweet and observant woman. She was really skilled in helping me figure out what I was wanted for- I had no idea at first! She was fun to talk to and was so non-judgmental and respectful when I asked to only see dresses less than $1,000, and I found the perfect dress well within my budget. I would highly recommend Charlotte's to any bride!

From this she would pull new dresses that would fit what I liked. I found my perfect wedding dress and absolutely loved it!!!!

They are so helpful and even let me borrow my dress (the one I tried on at the store cause mine wasnt in yet) to let my grandmother see it before she passed away. That was the nicest thing they could have done. Best experience of my life. Wouldn't ever go to anyone else.

Charolette's was the first and only wedding dress shop I visited. I made an appointment there because I had heard consistent great things from actual brides themselves. I can honestly say they lived up to every expectation I had. My bridal consultant, Emily was very sweet and not pushy at all. I actually fell in love with the very first dress I tried on! She was very helpful, positive, and never seemed annoyed when we were trying to decide between dresses. My dress came in earlier than predicted and all the consultants I spoke to over the phone were always very helpful. They seem always on top of things and I was always notified right away when things came in. Jeri, the manager, was especially very nice to work with and she always made sure I was taken care of. When a slight problem arose with my dress, she had every solution ready to fix it and she did. She eased my mind and I knew everything would be ok. I also highly recommend working with one of their recommended seamstress, Lorraine. She was very sweet and very quick. I also purchased dye-able shoes, a customized ring bearer pillow, and two veils from Charolette's. Everything I received was the best quality and I never had any problems working with them. My only wish is maybe they could get a little better lighting in their dressing rooms. I sometimes felt I looked more pale than I was, but it was nothing horrible. All in all, amazing customer service and really reasonably priced dresses and a great selection. It is no wonder they are always constantly recommended from brides themselves.

My bride looked stunningly beautiful as well (but she tends to look that way all the time) however our wedding day, she was glowingly beautiful!!! Read less

Everyone told me to buy my dress at Charlotte's and I am so glad I did. Everyone I worked with had a fantastic attitude and worked to make sure I found the perfect dress. I challenged them a few weeks after purchasing my dress when I decided I didn't like the alteration I had chosen. They said no problem, we'll change it back and they did without complaint. Every time I went in they were helpful and attentive. And they beat all prices I found at other stores on the dress I selected. I would highly recommend Charlotte's.

There are so few great dress shops in Oregon--Charlotte's is definitely the best one I went to. The sales girls were great---really knowledgeable and helpful. I found the dress I was looking for there---they had a great selection and I actually found more than one that worked for me.

I went to just about every bridal store in the area and none of them compared to Charlotte's. Each bride gets a suite to try gowns on with just your friends and family looking at you instead of every other person in the store sharing mirrors with you. I just gave my consultant a cague description of what I was looking for and she pulled 20 dresses she thought I might like. I didn't have to waste time looking through racks to find what I wanted to try on, all that was done for me. Plus, they let me keep my dress at the store until two months before the wedding when I needed to take it to the seamstress.

Just about the only shop I found where a size 18 can try on dresses.

I loved my dress, I loved that Charlottes handed out $100 coupons at the bridal shows, and I loved that when my out of town Maid of Honor came for a visit, they let me take her in and try on the dress for her.

Wonderful!

Charlotte's has some amazing dresses! The atmosphere is very nice, and it makes it nicer to have your own room. I know they have a VIP room which I'm sure is even better, but we were saving money wherever we could, so a free room was plenty fancy enough! Charlotte's was the first place I went to, and I found a dress I love, but I thought I should try a couple other places, and never found anything as amazing as the dress at Charlotte's! The employees are very friendly and helpful, and I loved working with them.

Charlotte's helped me find my dream dress! I went in with a pretty clear image of how I wanted to look for my wedding day, and I found that in two dresses. My consultant Morgan was so incredibly helpful and patient with me as I asked to go back and forth between both dresses and tried to decide which dress was THE dress. She gave her opinion only when I asked, and she was incredibly low pressure the entire time! There was no pressure to buy, to have a certain reaction, to get a certain dress... She put me and my little party at ease and never once rushed me. The shop is so cute and cozy and most importantly they carried my favorite wedding dress designer, Maggie Sottero :] The only thing that would have made the experience perfect was if they had an in house seamstress to alter my dress for me. I had to find someone outside their shop, and unfortunately that experience was not nearly as impressive. But other than that, everything was perfect! I highly recommend them to any bride looking to feel special on their wedding day!

Really great bridal shop for a busy location. Once in their newly remodeled shop you are given a consultant and a room that will help showcase you in your dress. I tried on many dress in CA, ID and WA. Nothing compared with value and price once I visited Charlotte's. Had such a great experience and found the best accessory I had there. My veil! They also made my stress lower with their great tuxedo rental service. Really great job. Definitely recommend, especially with their service to out of town brides!

The only problem I had was that they only carry dresses up to a 14 and I am big busted so I needed a larger dress to fit my top half. They ordered a dress in my size to try and I wasn't obligated to buy the dress if it didn't work. Luckily it was perfect and there was no need for anything else.

My only little complaints are that they don't have an in-house alterations (that would have been convenient) and they charge $25 a month to store your dress (although they did give me a free week after I paid for a full month).

I had fantastic customer service at Charlotte's. They were always available to meet me anytime I needed to come in. I had nine bridesmaids and they worked with each of them. I would highly recommend them for a bridal gown. So worth it!!

My bridesmaids were a little frustrated when associates at Charlottes wouldn't let them order their true dress sizes. So when the dresses came in... I had 5 girls whose dresses didn't fit. If you know for a fact (because you have had to wear other bridesmaids dresses from Davids bridal, etc.) you are a size 8 for instance and they are making you get a 10/12 or a 6... try to convince them to order the size you want. It was such a hassle to have all of the dresses altered when it could have been avoided in the first place if the associates had listened to my girls. YThe customer has to sign a form agreeing to a specific size... so I don't understand why it matters if the customer wants a specific size. It is on the customer if they said the wrong size.

After visiting a couple of other large and small wedding dress shops, I stopped by Charlotte's and knew it would be the place where I would get my dress. Erin helped with my first visit trying on dresses and she was so fun and easy to be with, and had such a great eye for what I was looking for. I was super excited to see her when I went in for my follow-up appointment! After receiving my dress I found a flaw in my dress and, though the initial response I received wasn't great, all follow-up responses were fabulous and they fixed the flaw for free. I originally hadn't planned to go in to Charlotte's because I thought I might not be able to afford their dresses, but they had a really wide variety and I ended up finding three that I really liked and fit my budget, and, of course, the one that was perfect. Highly recommend them!

I went up to Portland to visit my best friend and we made an appointment at Charlotte's just for fun (I had only been engaged a month and I live in Los Angeles). It turned out that I found the perfect dress and for much less than I would have paid in L.A. The staff were all very friendly and were very accommodating of the fact that I had to wait a month to come in and pick up my dress after it arrived - I did have to book a flight and take time off work to come up, after all. I loved my experience at Charlotte's and I would recommend them to any bride in the Portland area.

I didn't end up buying my dress at Charlotte's, but probably only because it was the first place I went.

This is the BEST bridal boutique in portland. It's a great place to go if you are just starting to look. My saleswoman helped me narrow down which style of dress was best for me. She was really friendly, and it was a wonderful experience.

The private rooms are great--I brought my mom and two bridesmaids with me.

The day I bought my dress everyone was so helpful and amazing. You get your own LARGE dressing room, with big comfy chairs for your family and friends to sit it in while you try on dresses. I had tried on a ton of dresses by the time I finally made it to Charlotte's, and they by far had the best prices and best service of anywhere I went.

The one downside the we had was getting in my veil and dress. Originally my dress and veil were supposed to be in first week of March. When I hadnt heard from them by the second week I called to check in, they still hadnt received either. While my dress ended up coming in at the end of the second week my veil was another story. It took another three weeks for my veil to come in and when I called, they told me that the designer (who is a local Portland designer) was usually always late getting them their orders. It worked out fine since I wasnt getting married until June, but it was frustrating that they chose to carry a designer they knew wasnt a punctual person.

Charlottes was professional. I loved the selection. The only negetive was the fact that the building is not wheelchair accessible which was difficult with one of my bridemaids being in a wheelchair. Love the $100.00 saing from the bridal show though!

The sales lady was very nice. She did a excellent job selecting dresses for me. And never showed anything out of my price rang. I ended up picking the first dress I tried on! The only I didn't like was how the measured me. I told them I wanted to wear 3 inch heels and they ordered it according. Turns out I had to ware 1 3/4 inch heels. Which is not easy to find. Also the dress was too big. I'm not sure if the smaller size would have been a better choice.

LOVED LOVED LOVE LOVED Charlotte's! The selection was beautiful and my consultant was very helpful to find my dream dress. I had no idea what I wanted or what I even liked and I left that day knowing which dress I wanted to order (I would've ordered that day but waited the following Saturday so I could get a discount from the Bridal Show).

And I was totally nervous about going dress shopping because I thought it was going to be expensive and was surprised it was less than $1000.

The one thing that bothered me:
I only had five months to plan my wedding. At the time I ordered my dress they told me that it would arrive the first week of May (wedding was May 8) but if I rushed ordered it ($160) it would get in the first week of April. So I paid the rush fee and it got it the first week of March! I didn't need it the first week of March...and if I didn't rush it then it would've come in four weeks later. So that was a waste of money. I was going to say something to them about but I just dropped it, wish I went back and said something though.

Charlotte's was by far the best dress shop in Portland that I went to... and believe me, my mom and I went to plenty. They have a huge selection but you never feel overwhelmed because you have your own private room and they bring in a few dresses at a time. It gets busy on the weekends, so be sure to book an appointment.

This was the fifth bridal store I had gone to and should have been my first! The store is lovely and the dresses absolutely gorgeous. The girls there did a great job listening to the style of dress I was looking for and helped me find "the one!" I knew it was right when I didn't want to take it off. :) I loved my dress and really enjoyed my overall experience at the store.

Getting my wedding dress with Charlotte's Weddings was such an amazing experience. By the time I found the store I'd already tried on dresses in three other ones, of which I felt rushed and unassisted. At Charlotte's Weddings they give the bride her own massive dressing room with a huge mirror and personal consultant who stays with you the full hour or so until you've found the perfect dress! I was impressed with their professionalism and ability to help me find just the right fit.

So here's the deal- Charlotte's ordered my dress in the wrong size. I ordered the dress in February, it came in in August in teh wrong size...I was freaking out.

However, Charlotte's went over and beyond making their wrong right. They rushed a new dress for me, it arrived within weeks, they set up every alteration appointment and covered all costs (since the new dress they got was two sizes too big- had to be that way to come in time...long story). But the point here is that I would still recommend them to anyone. They were fantastic in making me feel confidentt that the issue would be resolved. And it was. The dress was beautiful on our wedding day.

I have a hard time clothes shopping and was dreading trying to find a wedding dress. My first stop was at Charlotte's and the woman who helped me was upbeat and cheerful. Almost all of the dresses she brought me to try on would have looked great for the wedding. However, towards the end, I tried on THE dress. Such a great feeling!

I tried on some dresses at other shops but ultimately went with THE dress from Charlott'es and am so glad I did. I loved the dress and the price was pretty good too (less than $500).

After ordering the dress, Charlotte's called me to give me an update about the status of the order and called again when the dress arrived (weeks ahead of schedule).

The only three star rating is because Charlotte's would not let me return a slip after I decided it wasn't needed for the dress. I can understand the "all sales are final" policy with respect to gowns, but expected a little more flexibility regarding a slip that they could easily resell. Ultimately, it's a fair policy and my fault for not making sure I wanted the slip before I purchased it, but the inflexibility on such a minor point did dampen my spirits about Charlotte's a little.

Yes Yes Yes!! I was definitely a hard case for the poor girl I went to... several trips back to the store to try on different options. She was unfailingly patient and extremely nice. In the end she picked the PERFECT dress for me and I fell in love. We had a couple of minor miscommunications but I would say just make sure you just understand each other well on the logistics and don't get blinded by your joy.

The entire staff at Charlotte's is sweet and friendly, and they never pressured me to buy a dress. Because I felt so welcomed and non-threatened, I went back a second time (instead of going somewhere else) and bought a dress. They don't have a huge selection of dresses, but it's totally adequate, and the price range is completely manageable. If I was getting married again, I'd go back in a heartbeat!

I found my dress right away (luckily). Charlottes doesn't let you look through their dresses. Instead, you go to a very large fitting room where the sales girl brings you styles to try on. Luckily they had a postcard in the fitting room with a dress that was beautiful so I requested to try IT on, and it looked great. After that... everything was wonderful. It came on time, had a great price, and was fitted well by their recommended seamstress.

All the girls here were super helpful and nice. I really cant say enough good things about charlotts and suzanne. the only thing that was kind of frustrating is that when i would try to email suzanne someone else would email me back. oh well tho!

The alterations lady they set me up with was another story. Loraine Huey, called and cancled my appointment two weeks before the wedding when i had been on her schedual for a month. Seriously un professional. But thats ok i found someone great and local to do my dress.

I really never thought I would get my dress at one of the bridal shops. I'd planned on doing some browsing at the stores and going to the internet but after visiting Charlotte's I found my perfect dress in my price range. The consultant listened to what I said, looked at the pictures I brought..... and then brought me exactly what would look best on me. I was skeptical but she was 100% right. I watched hours of reality TV where the consultants bring out dresses that are twice the budget but at Charlotte's she listened to my budget and never brought in a dress that exceeded that price. Trust them, they know what they are doing!

The initial lady I worked with to find my wedding dress was phenomenal and very accomodating. After that it kind of went downhill. My bridesmaids had a difficult time with the staff finding their order as well as finding who the order was associated with. Same thing happened with my mom buying a dress. They could not find my paperwork for a while and was not going to give the discount that we were told we would get without the paperwork. In the end it was found and all was good, but just another thing to be stressed about.

She did listen to what I wanted which was good, I think she just could have been friendlier. I used Lorraine for my alterations who did a fabulous job.

I loved shopping at Charlotte's. I did not end up purchasing my gown here, but if they had sold the gown I wanted, I certainly would have! I did end up purchasing my veil here. The staff was professional and accomodating, even when I just stopped by to look at veils with no appointment, and later when I wanted to try on my own dress with veils (two days before the wedding!) they squeezed me in. Their dressing rooms were the best I encountered - private and spacious, and a good space to come out in natural light and see your dress. I highly recommend this store.

I bought my dress from Charlotte's over a year before my wedding. The girl that helped me try on dresses was very patient and eager to please: she kept bringing me dresses to try on until I found one I loved (I tried on about 12 dresses total).
Charlotte's doesn't have anything to do with the cost of the gowns, so it's hard to rate the value for the cost; that being said, I found a gown and veil I loved, in my price range, and Charlotte's didn't show me anything outside my budget.
I would definitely recommend Charlotte's to a newly engaged bride looking to try on dresses -- be prepared to fall in love with one on your first visit!

My consultant Skye was very good at listening to what I wanted and brought me only dresses in my budget which was appreciated. I personally would have liked to look through the racks myself as that is part of the fun of dress shopping but I can see the efficiency in letting them do the picking. Large private dressing rooms which are nice if you are not shy about changing in from of your friends and family. My only complaint isn't really with Charlotte's but just the bridal industry in that I ordered the size they told me to based on my measurements and of course it was WAY too big as expected to I needed a lot of costly alterations which with a lace dress I was hoping too avoid. So my advice once you find a style/designer you like try on a few different sample sizes and just order what actually fits and not off the chart. I did this with a BM dress and it saved me a lot of money wish I had done the same with my wedding dress.

Had a smaller budget for a dress and walked in and did not see anything on the racks in my price range. But when I got in the room and told her what I wanted and how much I wanted to spend, she found the absolute perfect dress! Having a private room with your friends and family makes the experience that much more special.

Beautiful dress!
When it was ordered, the slip was not ordered with it. This was not caught until the morning of the wedding! They were not open on Sundays but luckily there was an emergency number on the front door that we called. The owner came down to give me a slip to borrow. I didn't receive any discount for this error. It was definitely not an ideal fit, but I was glad I had something!
They didn't have an alterations service easily available but recommended someone to us 4 yrs. ago. I wasn't particularly happy with them because it was a strapless dress that I had to keep pulling on to keep it up. I would definitely go there again for a dress but other things like slips, shoes, alterations, and veils I'd purchase elsewhere.

I could have purchased the same dress where I live, but because I liked this store so much I decided to go with Charlotte's. The sales rep was so attentive and sweet. They definitely make you feel special and have a great variety of dresses too!
The only thing I wasn't too happy with was the measurement process. According to the measurements they took I should order a dress 2 sizes larger than the sample dress I tried on. Since the sample dress fit, but was just a tad snug I understood, but it seemed the next size up would be most appropriate. I protested and went for a size smaller than suggested and signed their agreement clearing them of responsibility. Had I gone with the size suggested my dress would have been taken in 4"+ instead of 2" on each side. My dress was still too big in certain areas, like the chest and the seamstress could not alter it unless she took the whole dress apart. My mom had the same experience when trying on MOB dresses. According to the measurements they took she should order a size 12, 3 sizes larger than the dress she tried on. I understand it's easier to take a dress in rather than out, but the sizing should be monitored a little more closely to avoid such dramatic alterations.

Charlotte's is a great little place, when it's not too packed! The woman who helped me out was patient, helpful, and easy going. I went a couple of times before finding THE dress. They ordered it and had it in just in time! I really enjoyed the large private rooms, plenty of room for a few bridesmaids.

Overall, I did have a good experience at Charlotte's. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The dress came in the time frame that they said it would. The only thing that could have been better with my experience is the sizing of the dress. The dress that I tried on was the PERFECT size. In retrospect, I should have asked if I could just buy that dress. I suspect that the attendant did not recommend that because she wanted me to buy a new one and get a better commission. Then, when we sat down to figure out the size, she encouraged me to err on the side of bigger- which I understand. I'm still asking myself, why didn't we order the size of the dress I tried on? In fairness, I didn't think of doing that either but I have much less experience in sizing wedding dresses. Also, I'm sure that the sample dresses stretch a bit over time. When the dress came, of course it was huge on me. I did have it altered but everyone knows that it's better to alter from the closest true size. My actual dress never had that perfect feeling that the sample dress had. I also felt rushed when I was there trying on dresses and picking up my dress. Charlotte's is a very good business and I would recommend them but, in my experience, they lack the essence of "going above and beyond" to warrant rating them higher.

Loved my simple dress. Found it online and was sized and ordered all at once when I came in. They had the same dress in stock so it was reasuring to go ahead and order. Referred me to a get low key alterer and specialty bra company too. Good job ladies!

I had a sales woman ( I hope she was new ) take all of one of my bridesmaids information, measurements, and start to run her visa....at which point I asked when the dress would arive? 2 weeks past the wedding date was her answer. Kind of a problem. Luckily, I caught it in time. :)

Make sure you shop here if looking for a dress They didn't have much in the way of the wedding party or for my mother, but they had a huge selection of beautiful dresses for the bride. I received much help, although often the sales ladies were rude.

Charlotte's seemed to have a good variety of dresses; however, the person who helped me wasn't as friendly or knowledgable as other people I had helping me at other dress shops. Also, the room that I tried my dresses on in was really dark and dingy feeling. I ended up buying my dress from them because of the price, but I wouldn't end up recommending anyone to shop there.

Went in on a scouting mission - not very friendly or helpful. Guess I'll go elsewhere.
