Beautiful wedding gown, but they are a bit snooty and I would have liked to see better customer service, especially considering how expensive their gowns are and how much I paid!

Chic Parisien was my last stop after visiting at least 8 other wedding dress boutiques. Shopping for a wedding dress can be overwhelming, but the attentiveness to detail of the consultant who helped me select my dress was absolutely amazing. She listened to exactly what I wanted and my "budget" and worked with me. When I found the dress I fell in love with there were some minor changes I desired and both the consultant and seamstress worked with me every step of the way to make my dress spectacular. Finally, the BEST thing about my dress was the reaction I got from my husband when he saw me. He ABSOLUTELY LOVED the dress to the point that he teared up which means so much to me because I had only seen him cry once before during the 6 years of our dating and engagement relationship.

I walked away from this store with overwhelming joy! The staff (especially Alana) was extremely patient and made me feel that my special look for that special day was not only important but a priority--A Chic Parisien Priority. I went back to this store four (4) times and never once did she make me feel less adequate with regards to my indecision or budget. Alana did everything she could to make me feel just as important as the girls who buy $50,000.00 dresses (and yes some gals walk in and don't blink at 50K for a wedding dress). I didn't have a huge budget and even though I had to stretch it a little in the end, I didn't mind spending more because unlike some other bridal stores (I won't name...in Boca), Alana always made me feel like I had plenty of options. This store has the best designers, the best staff and most of all the best attitude. When my daughter grows up (first I must have her) this is exactly where I want her to buy a dress for her wedding. I'm beyond thrilled with this gem of a store and I know when I walk down the isle, I'm going to feel like pure bliss. Thank you Alana, Thank you Helen (the owner) and all the wonderful staff working at Chic Parisien!!!

I love this store!!!.... They make me want to get married every year if only for the experience I had here.
I loved my Lady Lucy.
All I had to do was tell her what I wanted or expected with my price point.
I even came with a few photos and she knew exactly what I wanted.
This was my first stop for trying on dresses and this was definitely my last.
I found my dress after 4 tries.... which I think is pretty darn good.
My lady knew the business, she knew her stock and she knew her bride.
The dress was almost the easiest part of my whole planning experience!
If I ever had to recommend a place to go shopping for a dress this is definitely the place!

I suppose I was one of the unlucky. I don't see how all of these brides recieved great service when I recieved quite the opposite. I ordered a Reem Acra gown, which I bought at a trunkshow. I was "told" that they could alter the shape to make it mermaid, which is what I wanted. I bought the gown because they told me this, I wouldn't have if they couldn't. I ordered a mantilla veil as well. I ordered the gown 9 months in advance because they said I didn't have time. My gown arrived in 4. I went for a fitting, and I was told they couldn't make it a mermaid, that this was the gown I ordered. It was a trumpet, not really that far away from a mermaid, it didn't seem like too much work, as they said it wouldn't be when they sold me the gown. It was two sizes to big. I made a big deal about this, because I felt like they were untruthful just to sell me a gown. They didn't try and help me, and told me I was stuck with this gown that I did not want as it was. Disgusting practices. I ended up having to purchase another gown elsewhere, spending twice for my gown. I got my veil, which was in a dirty bag. The tulle was not clipped around the lace, it looked like jagged uncut, CHEAP tulle sticking out around the lace. They wouldn't fix it for me either. Thats all.

I can't give them 5 stars, which I wish that I could. I unfortunately had a mediocre experience. It was fantastic, but it certainly wasn't horrible. I did expect more from this salon, I heard that it was supposed to be amazing. Cons - they don't call you back, they seem to forget what they tell you and then tell you something different the next time (which was the most annoying), I had a strong sense of unorginazation, and my alterations were just bad. Though, Pros - beautiful gowns, I loved the gowns, the services was ok, not bad. They have a great selection of evening gowns, my mom loved that. They also have other products such as invitations, so it does seem like it would be easier. All in all...meh.

First of my consultant Keidy (pronounced Katy but not sure of the spelling) was fantastick you feel like you are there with your friend, a friend who knows exactly what will look good on you and that you will love. She wasn't afraid to show me a dress that was on sale even though my origional price point was 6,000. The actual salon was lovely and I love the little champagne cans and they really helped take the edge off. so yeah Keidy was great I found a dress that was totaly amazing that was way under budget even with alterations

I expected First class service from this Coral Gables shop..what a dissapointment! Sample dresses are sold to "out of towners" only...locals must place order" the pushy saleslady informed me. This followed by unprofessional staff. Against my instincts and based on it's "fine reputation", I placed my order for my Paloma Blanca gown and veil. My $1,200.00 mantilla veil was handed to me, by the owner no less,in a "beige" dry-clean plastic bag and upon opening it on wedding day, the lace was cleary mismatched...1/2 of the veil was laced with IVORY and the other half with greatly contrasting WHITE lace!! No apology issued , simply a lame excuse of "different lots". Luckily, I had checked the gown before it was zipped up in a flimsy "Chic Parisien" garment bag. The strings for the bustle on my gown were too "skimpy" to hold the full weight of the heavy cathedral train and the strings broke off (safety pins didn't work as the material was too thick) thus no bustle. Had to carry the train on my wrist/arm for the remainder of the reception. Not what I expected after spending $7,000 for both veil and Paloma Blanca gown.

Chic Parisien pretty much has a monopoly on Monique Lhuillier gowns in Miami, so after falling in love with her designs, we knew we would be purchasing the gown here. The service leaves something to be desired, but its efficient and got me the gown I fell in love with. The gown is incredible. I was pleasantly surprised to see how much more beautiful the lace work was in person. They had the sample right in the store for me to try, which made me feel confident about my purchase.
