Saturday I went dress shopping for the first time. I was so nervous as to what I was going to walk into. Dawnelle greeted my group and I as we walked in. I had an appointment and she knew exactly who I was and what we were doing. She asked my opinions and I gave her a list of what dresses I found on their online sample inventory. She pulled all of those and pulled some of her own, thank goodness she did, one of her choices was MY DRESS! So helpful, so nice, and really tried to make this day all about me. She gave suggestions, but really took to my opinions and was looking out for me. You could tell by the way she was talking about the dresses and pulling ones to try on that she had been in this business a long time. I had an idea in mind and was dead set on getting a particular style dress, however Dawnelle suggested we try some things and she was right. My dress is not at all what I was describing to her, but it was exactly what I had invisioned. I am so happy that I decided to go with someone local and not with a box store, that's only looking for the purchase. Dawnelle looked at the big picture and was not pressuring me to buy from her. AWESOME EXPERIENCE, AWESOME TIME. I will definitely be back to get my bridesmaid dresses.

Elegant Brides is a wonderful place for all of your dress and tux needs. The staff are wonderful!! Elegant Brides also does a wonderful job in advising any attire situation you may have come up for your big day (we had a groom woman). I would recommend Elegant Brides to anyone wanting a personal experience from a staff that truly cares.

Dawnelle and the staff at Elegant Brides are awesome! She spent many hours working with me to get everything exactly how I wanted and to make sure I felt comfortable in the dress before ordering it. The seamstress, Nicole, was great to work with. When I went for my final fitting I decided I didn't like the way the top of the dress was laying after the latest alterations so the owner took some stitching out and worked with me herself. She stayed an hour late doing alterations on my mom's dress one night as well. The staff is absolutely amazing and remembered us every time we came in and always had nice things to say and a hug.

I loved my whole experience with Elegant Brides. They were amazingly accommodating from special ordering a dress for me just to try on (that I eventually ordered), to forming a personal relationship with me by the time it was my wedding day. My bridesmaids ordered their dresses from Elegant Brides, and every single staff member we dealt with made sure we all looked perfect. I hope I have another formal occasion again someday so I can go back to Elegant Brides.

I love this bridal shop! I did not have a good experience with the place I bought my shop, so when my maid of honor suggested this place for our bridesmaid dresses, I decided to try it out. It was a great decision! They altered my dress, even though I did not purchase it though them. They made sure to help my girls figure out correct sizes to order and altered them as needed. All the dresses looked beautiful and I highly recommend Elegant Brides to every bride!

I went in to buy a dress off the shelf because I had a short time frame to work with. I was able to find a beautiful dress in their big selection and have it altered, pressed, and ready to go within weeks. The lady I dealt with, who I believe was the owner of the shop, was fun to work with and very sweet.

They did a much better job with the dress than they did with the tux and men's formal wear. They had some trouble getting us the trial tux in to try on, and never got the correct size of tux for my fiance to try on, so we had to go with just basing it off of his measurements. It did show up and fit, but I would have liked it to be a little less loose, which we would have been able to tell them if they would have given us the chance to try it on.

All of the gals at Elegant Brides are so enjoyable to work with. I went in 3 different times before purchasing my dress and they took extra care to make sure I found the perfect dress. The dresses on the floor are all clean and in great condition. The shop is absolutely adorable and they allow pictures! From price comparing I never felt like they were marking up their dresses. The selection for wedding gowns and bridesmaid dresses is really wide and there are tons of sizes.
