I found my dress and was quoted a rate but since it was the first one I wanted to look a little more. I went to another store and they also had that dress so I called Elaines to make sure what the price would be and I was told that they couldn't sell me the dress at the price they quoted me because they would be losing money which I think is a joke because I bought my dress from the store I was at for even less than Elaines quoted me plus I didn't have to pay sales tax because I was in Minnesota and they shipped it to me for free so that I wouldn't have to drive back!! I would never tell anyone to go to Elaines because they do not stand by their word and even with an appointment they are rude.

I am late on writing this review, but I am still dealing with this awful business, and wanted to write this so that other brides can be aware of how awful service is at this particular boutique. I do see a lot of complaints about the store being busy and the hurry of getting in and out, honestly I recommend a champagne apt. Yes it is $200, but you have the entire store to yourself, and it was fabulous. I had my champagne apt. back in August. My first impression of the store was great. My consultant was awesome, and ended up pulling the dress of my dreams. She was truly great, but once my dress came in I had gotten a phone call that it had arrived. I missed it, and instead of listening to my filled voicemail to get to the message I simply called back as I didn't recognize the number. The girl was so very rude, and told me to listen to my voicemail message and hung up on me. I went in the store a second time with my bridesmaid to get measured. We were not greeted, as everyone was standing around talking. I felt awkward even being there. The girl who measured my bridesmaid was new, got her measurements all wrong (thank god she had someone check them) and made the experience very awkward. She was not confident, and was very indecisive. The only reason my bridesmaids ordered their dresses through them was because I did purchase my dress, and they all got 20% off. Every girl that called and ordered messaged me telling me they were not fun to deal with. Right now I feel as I am in a tough situation. It is time for me to get my dress fitted, and I have been told to steer clear of alterations. I am stressed out! I am so busy, that this is an inconvenience for me, but after all the money I spent on my dress, the last thing I need is my dress ruined. So I am planning on picking up my dress and getting my alterations else where. I chose Elaine's because they carried all of the designers I loved, but they were not pleasant to deal with. Steer clear.

Irritated by Elaine's!!!!!!
I called 2 times to make sure the dress I was looking at purchasing today would be there for my appointment and was told it was noted so that dress would be pulled for me...perfect you would think. But NO!!! After a combined travel time of 5 hours & 20min between myself, maid of honor and my mother and another bridesmaid , upon arriving to Elaine's today they first couldn't find the dress, then apparently had sent the dress to their other store because "a bride had requested it". Well what were my calls to double check that it would be there then to them?!
They NEVER even actually greeted us or apologized to me for this SUPER IRRITATING inconvenience. The consultant was not very helpful at all and the appointment was basically over before it began. I tried other dresses but the selection of dresses fankly sucked in my personal opinion.
Horrible customer service and after hearing negative things about Elaine's, but giving them a try because they said they had the dress I wanted, I would NEVER ever recommend them to anyone for anything. My experience simply sucked and was a complete waste of time and gas money.

I went to look for my wedding dress at Elaine's today and I was treated with nothing but disrespect. The woman who "greeted" me at the door looked at me like an idiot for not having an appointment and said, "Well I guess you can browse the dresses and try them on." So hesitantly we looked through the awful selection of dresses they have to offer. I found three dresses to try on, I didn't love any of them but I thought I'd give it a shot. My mom, grandma, aunt, and I walked towards the dressing room where a consultant was helping a customer. As I approached she looked at me as if I was a piece of trash off the street and said, "What are doing, who's helping you?" I told her one of the consultants told me to browse the dresses and I could try them on. Her reply was, "Well did she tell you to pull the dresses off the rack? Who helped you, I'm going to go find her I guess." My mom told her not to worry about it because we are going to go somewhere else. The consultant then told us we should wait. As she walked away we put the dresses back and began to head for the door. She saw us walking toward the exit and yelled across the store, "Carroll, they're leaving!" Yes, Carroll, we're leaving and never to return again. Not only did the lose my business, but the business of my 6 bridesmaids as well. Every word that came out of this woman's mouth was dripping with disdain and disgust. Horrible staff, horrible dresses, horrible attitudes. I can't believe anyone would give them business.

I had a champagne dress appointment in December. It was fabulous! We came in after the store had closed and there were snacks/champagne. I loved the selection provided and Tabitha was great with finding the style of dress I was looking for. We also selected our bridesmaid dresses there that night. We are planning on looking at tuxes here and hope the process goes just as smoothly!

I visited Elaine's for my wedding dress and bride's maid dresses. I have had numerous problems since ordering my dress from them. I found the customer service terrible. I was one of several brides trying on my dress the first time I stopped in. I understand they were busy and thus dismissed the lack of help from the staff members. I returned to the store to be sized and order my dress a few weeks later. My mother paid the required deposit and the order was placed. The dress came in and my mom then started a payment plan with the store. This was fine and incredibly nice of them! The fun begins here. My mother was informed there would be a weekly storage fee to keep my dress at the store! WEEKLY FEE? we were never told this and my mother promptly picked up the dress paying the remainder of the bill minus the $70 added bill for storage! (They wanted $20 a week!) I gave them the benefit of the doubt and made an appointment to have my bridesmaids see and try on the dress I picked for them over Thanksgiving when they were all home (I'm still in college and my friends are at college in many different places too!) So we had an appointment and I warned the staff my wedding party was 7 people with a miniature bride. When we went to the shop on the day of our appointment the staff laughed at me for saying we had an appointment! Then I asked the staff to find the dress I picked for the girls along with the one of my dress so I could show all the bridesmaids. The staff did so, but placed the dresses on the end of a rack and walked away. They didn't ask to help me put it on! (It laces up the whole back!) they also did help us at all the rest of the visit! I mean I had 10 plus people with no assistance from the 4 girls working. I would be considerate if there were other customers to help, but we were the only group and I had made an appointment! I was asked as we left the store (after deciding to bring our business elsewhere) when I wanted my maids fitted. I wanted it that day!!! HELLO!! I wish I could give a good complement to a store with beautiful dresses, but I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone EVER!

I went to Elaine's with some family members to look for my wedding dress. We were greeted when we walked in, but it was not in a friendly or professional way which really set the tone for the rest of the appointment. Once upstairs, the woman helping us seemed annoyed that we didn't know our way around the different areas of the store. We finally figured out where we were suppose to be and she disappeared for at lease 15 minutes, so what did we do...? We found lots of awesome dresses! She finally returned and became irritable that we had picked a few dresses each. I tried on a few dresses and did like them but I did not feel excitement or enthusiasm from the woman helping me. Even after finding a few I liked I would have tried a few more on but felt rushed out and that she didn't want to help us anymore so we left. Even if I had found "the dress" here I would not have bought it and recommend anyone who wants to have a fun, relaxing, and memorable time finding your wedding dress not to go to Elaine's.

My first experience with Elaine's bridal was horrendous and I was hoping it would be my last, but unfortunately it was not. My own bridesmaids were treated very poorly during their experiences, staff was not very accommodating and even rude to two of my bridesmaids that were expecting. I am also now ordering a bridesmaid dress, which I had requested a larger size, but was told that they couldn't contact the very company they order the dresses from. I was also told that customers are not made aware of a policy they have in place for changing the size of a dress! As a customer, I'm appalled that they purposely don't make this known. I have had bad experiences before and never felt the need to comment, but feel like everyone should be made aware of what they are getting themselves into when they come to Elaines!!
