Couture Miss Bridal has an ebay store where they sell their sample dress. I'm a bride on a budget and when I saw my dream dress for $279 I cried from happiness. I scrambled to get the money together in 2 hours in order to pay for this dress. As soon as I bought it I spread the happy news with my family. Then began the anxious waiting for my dream dress to come. I waited the length of the shipping period, my dress did not come. I waited 2 more days giving them the benefit of the doubt, no dress. I sent several emails, no answer. I finally hunted down the business online and got their phone number. Their answer? Sorry, we sold that dress to someone else......... That was going to be my wedding dress. I know this might seem trivial but that was IT. THE DRESS. And now it's gone. Worst experience with any seller. You don't sell a girls wedding dress.

My bridesmaids ordered 6 dresses in in the spring for my August wedding, contract signed 60% deposit paid. About 2 weeks before the dresses were scheduled to arrive, nobody was answering the phone, there is a sign posted on the door stating the shop is closed until further notice, the website no longer exist.
Unfortunately I did not read weddingwire reviews for this vendor. I wish I would have saw the review regarding the owners legal woes, I would have ran the other way-but of course I did not think to search for such a thing. Lesson learned.
Now we are left to scrambling to find and get the ordered dresses sent to another boutique, perhaps or quickly order new dresses. :-(

I went to them, and lets say they failed to mention that the owner would be going to jail for embezzlement, 30 days before my wedding leaving me with no dress. Thank god i found Diane's bridal couture in Georgetown D.C. She was able to make the most adorable beautiful wedding gown in 20 days tops

Bottom Line: DO NOT BUY A DRESS FROM THIS STORE.

Full Details: A lot of reviews will tell you how great the customer service is from a woman by the name of Michelle. That is correct, she was an amazing woman to work with and helpful beyond words. However, she is not at the store anymore. The news articles related to the store are not exclusive to the reputation of the store - http://washington.cbslocal.com/2013/11/25/md-woman-admits-to-stealing-5-1-million-from-d-c-non-profit/ The financial woes of the owner are directly affecting the business conducted in the store. Do a search for Ephonia Green in the Maryland Judiciary Case Search (http://casesearch.courts.state.md.us/inquiry/inquiry-index.jsp). There is currently a federal tax lien against her for $5.1 million. Let me point out – SHE HAS NOT SOLD THE SHOP. Her financial problems are affecting the business conducted in this shop.

I worked with Michelle to select my gown, and the gown I chose was the second one I tried on. Her customer service was amazing – but let me repeat, she is not there anymore. I ordered my gown on June 28th, and was told that the normal turnaround time to receive my dress would be between 3-4 months. By the end of October, I heard nothing.

I called the shop to check the status of my dress order and was told it was “shipped.” This was around October 30th, so I could anticipate my dress the first week of November. I called again the second week in November and received no additional information. I let things slide through December. At this point, I started calling the dressmaker directly, where they informed me that the dress was not shipped.

After daily phone calls to both the shop and the dressmaker with no resolution, I called my attorney and was prepared to take them to court for breach of contract. After threatening legal action and more phone calls to the dressmaker, my gown was shipped. I finally walked out with my dress on December 26.

I needed a veil. I looked for one in my area (Raleigh, NC), but I'm a visual person that needs to see everything together. And my gown was hidden at my parents house in Upper Marlboro. This made my search in NC a little problematic. When I was in-town one weekend a few weeks before my wedding I took my gown to Couture Miss knowing that I could find one there. I was greeted by two associates, perfectly willing to help me. After getting into my gown, and giving my veil criteria they were off to find me the perfect veil. The criteria; Dramatic. They understood that I had a simple dress and needed an added piece of drama. After a few picks, and a couple of close calls we found the perfect cathedral veil. It match my gown color perfectly and was the simplistic drama that I was looking for.

Thank you all for completing my look.

I worked with Michelle, she was wonderful. I showed her a picture of the look I was going for and for me the perfect dress. I tried on 3 dresses but fell in love with the first dress I tried on. Michelle went back and forth with me trying on each dress. She really made me feel soo comfortable and this was my first time trying on wedding gowns. I cannot forget that I got the dress for a wonderful price. So if anyone go to this store, see Michelle she is the best.

I visited this shop a month or so ago and I worked with Michelle. I have nothing but great things to say about her. She is very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about the dresses they carry. I really liked her and the shop had a good variety of dresses for brides and bridesmaids. I unfortunately did not buy my dress from them but needed to write this review about the shop and how good Michelle's customer service was with me.

I was married two weeks ago and purchased my wedding dress and veil from Couture Miss. Very pleasant and easy experience. Boutiques are different from larger retailers such as Davids Bridal. Different set of rules. But the level of service is worth it! Michelle and the other ladies were knowledgeable and ready to help. I was looking for a particular dress from Brides Magazine and they were listed as a retailer and had a size I could try on in stock (Im a size 18). I decided to get something else but it was great that I didn't have to go on a long distance search for the original dress I liked. They had plenty of dresses in my size to try so that I wouldn't have to settle. There were no challenges with the lead time for the dress to come in or alterations. Good experience with great ladies with professional attitudes.
