My bridesmaids are all in different states and therefore we will not be ordering as a large bridal party with the typical bridesmaids/bride experience. One of my bridesmaid went to this store today to begin the shopping process and my bridesmaid was upfront that she would not be purchasing at this time. They went so far as to make her pay to even try on dresses. Very disappointing to a bride who just wants the girls in her wedding to have a positive experience since I can't be around. I heard they were extremely pushy and it was overall a terrible experience. Based on my limited experience with this vendor I would recommend to go elsewhere. They clearly only care about the bridal experience if you are willing to spend a lot of money. I do not think that is what this process should solely be about. Very disappointing.

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!

Kim at Darling was so very helpful and accommodating!!!
Since we didn't have a bride, it was difficult for us to figure out exactly what we wanted. Kim helped us with different ideas and suggestions and all turned out absolutely perfect.
I was a little nervous about the timeline, but all the dresses and tuxedos showed up in plenty of time, so I had nothing to worry about and Kim kept reassuring me that everything would be fine.
Kim made sure to keep in contact with me throughout the process and her ideas were exceptional.
Zora is the best seamstress that you could ever find! We had a junior groomsmaid from out of town that was unable to get a final fitting until the day before the wedding and Kim and Zora were both so accommodating and made sure her dress was fitted to perfection the day before the wedding.
I couldn't have asked for a better vendor to provide all the attire for the wedding party.
We purchased our tuxedos from her as well and even with a change in shoe size a week and a half before the wedding, Kim made sure that everything fit well and we had everything we needed.
The jewelry that Kim picked out for the girls was perfect!!!
I am so glad we decided to walk into her shop almost a year ago and have her help with the attire!!!!
The dresses were custom made at a cost of $180 each. The rental tuxedos were $150 each and our purchased tuxedos were $400 each. I put this information in because of the amount we spent with her will not give a breakdown of how it was spent. I do not know what the cost of wedding dresses are, because we did not need one, so I have no reference on that.

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!

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!
