Great selection of designer dresses. I called ahead for a specific model number and they had it ready for me to view that same day and we're able to accommodate without an appointment. The alterations specialist was very thorough and made the exact changes I had envisioned, including creating a unique veil exactly as I described. They were timely and flexible with followup appointments.

My mother bought her dress at this store, so it was naturally the first place I went shopping for a dress. However, my experience was not great. The sales person did not understand what I was asking for, and did not allow me to look at dresses directly to show her. I had even brought photos of ballgowns I liked but she pull any for me! Additionally, when I brought my mother's dress, she looked at it with disdain which really turned me and my mother off. Because of this I did not purchase my dress here but I purchased a few (overpriced) accessories.

Helen is the sweetest person! After a terrible experience at Daisy Tarsi, Helen helped me get back to bridal bliss at Chic Parisen and we found the perfect gown for my wedding. I have already recommended friends to Chic Parisen and hope another event will bring me back into the store in the future!

Let me start out by saying-my dress was amazing!! I received a ton of compliments on it and I felt great in it. Also my seamstress was so sweet and great at making the dress fit perfectly. Now the actual service of the store-not what you'd expect when you're paying $3K++ for a dress. We had to wait 30 minutes after our scheduled appointment time and they were rude about it, we did not get champagne while we waited, even after we bought the dress. Even for my first fitting they were rude. If you can drown out the front area and focus just on dresses then go do it but if you're all about the service, I would try somewhere else first.

This business had thee most incredible people working there. from the owner to our sales person, everyone was helpful. There was no problem they couldn't handle. They made this the most joyful experience for my daughter. They had the nicest selection, more importantly they worked with us, above and beyond. They delivered excellence!!! I would not shop anywhere else. when we did have a small problem they bent over backwards to help us....and it wasn't even their fault. They give you plenty of time. they never rush you and they made everything easy and joyful. Chic Parisien even had the wedding designer Lazaro come to their store and we bought our dress when he was there!! Lazaro even sketched my daughter!! She felt like a princess. Oh he was sooo kind!! It was all very fairytale....most importantly the entire staff was kind and helpful. Katie was our lead salesperson. WOW!! A total angel!! Two thumbs up!!!

I am so happy I walked into Chic and left with my dream dress. They give you the red carpet treatment. You are greeted, given champagne, and you have your own private room to try on dresses. I worked with Keidy and she was such a sweetheart. Any question I had she helped. She brought out so many beautiful dresses it was so hard for me to decide on just one. She understood my style and that was something I think made her and Chic stand out from all other stores. For alterations they were super accommodating and really made my dress fit like a glove.

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.
