This place was great! All of my bridesmaids and I were able to be worked on at the same time while sipping champagne around the gorgeous 'beauty bar'. Many of my bridesmaids chose not to get up do's but still wanted to be a part of the beauty experience, so they offer everything to just a wash and blow dry to a full updo and makeup! They are so great and it was such a great and relaxing start to our long day a head!

Becca was super helpful but comes off kind of... arrogant? I'm snot sure what the word is i'm looking for. You can tell she really knows her stuff. She will give you an honest option. I other staff is much nicer and friendlier but not as knowledgeable as Becca.

There was one thing that happened that was weird. Becca(the owner) had told me that they don't have a seamstress on site so you have to find someone else to alter my wedding dress, however, if you get any other sales lady other than Becca they will say they do have someone on site to alter a dress. It doesn't make sense?! Whey are some people recommending her while Becca does not.

I do not recommend using DeMario bridal for renting tuxes for weddings, especially if you have out of town guests.

First, I will say that Megan and Debbie provided good customer service. Debbie especially went above and beyond to help me. My problem with DeMario stemmed from the attitude its management seems to have toward its customers.

I had out of town groomsmen, because they were coming in from across the country and have to work for a living, they couldn't try on their tuxes until the day before the wedding. I've been in several wedding parties and have tried on tuxes the day before without any problems. DeMario knew the situation and didn't tell me they'd have a problem with trying on tuxes the day before.

When we tried on the tuxes the day before there were several problems (for one, my suit jacket didn't fit because they measured me incorrectly, my shirt was also wrong, but fortunately Debbie noticed this and called me in advance to get my correct size). For the most part, I didn't have a problem that some things didn't fit, my problem was with the response from DeMario.

On the day of, a family friend went to pick up the corrected tuxes and was treated horribly. She was told how inconsiderate she was and we were because we tried on our tuxes the day before and that we expected to get our items sent to us the next day. Treating customers in an abusive manner (especially ones giving you over $1,000 in business, which is a lot of money I think) is unacceptable.

It seems as though the management has an antagonistic attitude toward its customers. There are other options available in and around Westminster including local stores and the national chains. DeMario doesn't offer better prices than the national chains and clearly doesn't value its customers, so I recommend grooms use another shop for their tuxes.

DeMario bridal was great to work with during my wedding planning. I found the perfect dress on the first visit and I couldn't wait to wear it on my wedding day. I also purchased my veil, headpiece, and earrings there. Becca was a great sales consultant and even though there were some issues with the alterations, in the end Judi came through! I ended up purchasing my bridesmaid dresses at another bridal store, and I wish I had used DeMario for this as well. I definately recommend this shop!

We had a wonderful experience from beginning to end with DeMario Bridal and Formal, Inc. The shop is lovely and recently remodeled. The personal service was warm and inviting. The care for detail and organization was perfect. My daughter's dress was exquisite and yet reasonably priced. Our groomsmens' attire was fitted and ordered correctly. Our bridal fittings were relaxed and the dress was altered perfectly. We would highly recommend Judy and her team at DeMario Bridal and Formal, Inc. It is well worth the visit!!

The process of picking out a wedding dress is one of the most important things that a bride will ever go through. There are so many factors that go into picking out a dress. I had visited many different bridal stores (everything from the large David's Bridal to the little bridal boutiques). When recommended by a friend to look at DeMario, I went for it. I met with a lady named Becca- who was great, and I have not one bad word for her. She helped me look though dresses that met the "style" I was looking for. She gave you that one on one attention that every bride wants and deserves. I was able to narrow down my dress selection to two. The next day I went in with my mom to see if she "approved" of either dress. We found the one! It was great because they had a coupon to recieve 50 dollars off (which is always nice!) and recieve 10% off the bridesmaids outfits. A full service bridal salon- everything all taken care of there. All seemed great.

After paying the 50% of my dress to have it ordered, things seemed to go, well not so great. I got a phone call a few days later telling me that my dress would not be in on time for the wedding, so they have to charge me a late fee. You would think that when paying for half of your dress, you would have been told that there would be a late fee. Ok, so I had to just get over it... I needed a dress and this one was wonderful!

So, I found my bridesmaids dresses here as well. Nightmare. They gave me a date in which the dresses needed to be ordered by. I got all the meaurements from my bridesmaids (some of which were done there). Called to order the dresses... in reviewing the order, someone had written down chocolate and ivory dresses, when in fact they were to be black and ivory. Good thing to review ALL orders. We were able to change that before eny order was made. We made the order for the dresses. A few days later, same phone call, dresses need to be "rushed". Well, late fee times 4 is a little bit of money to be paying out.

So, admist all of this, the worst. I get a phone call that they are shutting down their doors and that I have to pick up my dress. This was not good! What about my fittings, the steaming... and my bridemaids dresses. This is not something that a bride wants to hear durning all the comotion of planning a wedding. I guess there were some issues with the salon and I was there durning it all. Well... they never shut their doors... anyway.....

I was able to pick up my dress about three weeks before the wedding, which was great to finally have in hand. When I took the dress out of the bag at home, it was a wrinkled mess! My mom's comment was great- "I would not even buy a dress that wrinkled from Kohl's like that!"

I was very frustrated that an expensive dress was not presented "nicer". Luckily, I was a true fit to my dress, and did not need any alterations, which the shop was unable to provide.

Back to the bridesmaids. Two of my BMs were local and able to be measured at DeMario. Both of their dresses were large. My sister took hers to a family friend to get altered, and another was able to somehow get hers altered at DeMario- guess they got someone to do alterations. When this bridesmaid went to have her fitting, they were amazed at how large the dress was, and charged her more for alterations because they had to take so much in. Remind you, she was meausred at this store...

All four BMs had to get their dresses taken in. All the dresses were way too long. Just more to deal with while planning a wedding.

They told me to bring in my dress to be steamed, after my mom called. I took it in, and had a date arranged. Well, like most brides, you think you can do a ton of stuff the week of the wedding, but you can not do everything. I needed the dress to be steamed ealier. I called and arranged for it to be changed- everything seemed fine, until I called to go pick it up- it was not steamed...

There is more, but overall, I do not recommend this place. Like I stated, Becca was great, and she gave the attention I needed. I did not care for some of the other women who worked there. They seemed very selfish and rude to be direct.

I bought my dress, veil, shoes, and some of my jewelry from DeMario Bridal. I really couldn't have asked for a better experience. The dress selection is great! I was able to get the perfect dress for me, and one that was such beautiful quality at a really amazing price. From the first day I walked into the shop, I was treated with patience, kindness and professionalism. I never felt pressured into buying anything, and was able to have a relaxed, stress-free experience. Judy did an amazing job on my bustle, which was challenging because it was lace. She didn't give up until it was just right! My whole wedding dress experience went so smoothly and felt really personal, which is such an advantage of going to a smaller, hometown store. The selection of dresses and quality of service far exceeded my expectations! I was so pleased, I brought my very dirty dress back there to have it cleaned and preserved. They gave me a coupon, and it came back quickly and looking so nice! I have already referred two of my engaged friends to the shop, and they both bought their dresses there! I will continue to speak highly of this business because it's a hidden gem and they really helped make my day so special! Thank you!
