Just got back from a bridesmaids appointment at Darling Brides, and it was so successful! My sisters traveled a long way from out of town for this appointment, and Kim was organized and helpful. She had the picture books ready for the designer I chose, and she quickly brought out several dresses for the girls to try.

All of my bridesmaids are wearing different styles and have different needs in terms of body-type and preferences--I was impressed at the way Kim found appropriate dresses for everyone. She gave clear instructions, and she was always ready to help with clips or a zip-up or advice. Everyone found a great dress, and Kim was completely transparent about measurements and sizing options. She was upfront about the timing of the dress ordering/shipment, as well as costs for the alterations the girls may have to make.

I was satisfied and impressed with the quality of service. It can be such a sensitive experience to try on dresses, and Kim made everyone feel comfortable and pretty. We all left feeling good! Looking forward to working with Darling Brides again when the dresses arrive!

I found my dress here and loved it! The only thing I wasn't crazy about was that the straps they installed on the dress didn't want to stay up unless I stood just right. I could have had my mistress of ceremonies take her needle and thread to it, but I wanted to party so it wasn't a big deal. :) By and large they were excellent to work with and they listened to my concerns/questions.

Super friendly, super helpful. There is no push to buy, no push to try. I felt totally comfortable with them. They were so helpful in everything. They answered all my questions and made sure I was completely happy with everything. Although they don't have as much variety as the bigger stores (they do have very beautiful gowns), it's the service and kindness that kept me coming back. I felt very comfortable with them.

All I can say is I had a wonderful experience at Darling Brides. No surprises...Anyway, I and my party worked with Kim, the owner, and she kept me abreast of everything at every juncture regarding my wedding. I even did my tuxedos and the guys looked fantastic. Kim...job well done!

I found a dress online and went to Darlings to try it on. I walked throught the door and stated that I wanted a casual dress for a Fall 2nd wedding. Without asking my size, colors, style, the staff started bringing random dresses from the backroom. I thought it was hilarious! How could you find a dress for someone without the details?! but I did find a dress, in brown no less! I purchased the dress which they stated would take too many weeks to order if i didn't buy it there and now and it wouldn't come in for my wedding 10 weeks away. the next day, i discovered that the same dress was available on line, a bill levkoff, for 200.00 less than the in-store model. but i love the dress. i had the seamstress make a sash...more money. and by the time it was said and done, i'd spent $400.00 on a formal dress...not a wedding dress.

on a good note, after that 1st time, the sales people were great, accomodating, kind and personable. the seamstress was brilliant. she even added several inches to the dress when we discovered that it was too short to allow me to wear tall heels, I absolutely loved the finished product! my dress was lovely, pressed in plenty of time and the staff was remarkably kind! so, aside from that bizarre day, the experience was great and we were able to buy locally!

Darling Brides was extremely helpful and friendly and I purchased both my wedding dress and girls dresses there - the staff was always willing to listen to any silly questions I had and even helped me out when one of my girls got pregnant and realized she would be 8 months pregnant at the wedding. The seamstress was amazing - a little pricey for alterations, but I suppose that's common anywhere!

After looking at a few shops, I walked into Darling Brides, told them I wanted something with burgundy on it, and they pulled my dream dress off the rack in minutes. The dress was a discontinued model, so I ended up purchasing the one off the rack (fortunately, it fit!). It was strapless, and I wanted straps. The seamstress is amazing. She and I talked over some of the modifications that I wanted (straps, change in the bow on the sash, and a French bustle). She made all of the changes and even made a custom jacket for me. I will say that the alterations were pricey, but worth it. I also purchased the dress for my flower girl from Darling Brides. My flower girl lives in Ireland, and the staff at Darling Brides helped me pick out a perfect dress just from measurements her mom sent. I ordered the flower girl dress fairly close to the wedding, and they made sure it arrived in time. I was very happy with my whole experience.

I went to Darling Brides because its the only bridal store in the Ann Arbor area with a good selection of Alfred Angelo. I did find my dress and veil there and the customer service was mostly good. Definitely felt that the staff was a bit pushy when it came to closing a sale and when I came in with my bridesmaids to look fortheir dresses I felt we were somewhat ignored. The store itself isn't much to look at, but they do have a nice selection of dresses and I felt we got a fairly good deal. Zorah, the seamstress, is pretty awesome!
