I LOVE LOVE LOVE all the ladies at Emelinas. From the first time I came into the shop until I picked up my wedding dress before the big day, they made me feel special. I'm a plus size bride. They helped me find the dress that was best for my shape. I would recommend them to everyone. Alterations was a breeze. They made my dress perfect for me. Thank you!!

I bought my wedding dress at Evelina's and would highly recommend them for any future brides. They have great customer service! Their staff was very helpful and once I found the dress I wanted they were able to work with me on the price to stay within my budget. You will also not find more affordable alterations in Tampa! They are very well priced and do beautiful work.

Where to start? I have been coming to Emelina's ever since I was 15 years old picking out my homecoming & prom dresses for high school so when it came to my wedding, I knew exactly where to go. Emelina is the owner and can pretty much take any dress and turn it into a show stopper on your body. My wedding dress fit me perfectly and she was able to make additional alterations to the dress upon my request and it turned out PERFECT! I could not have been happier with the result. I have seen Emelina take a size 14 dress and alter it to a size 0 and you would have never known! My aunt, mother and grandmother also bought their formal dresses for my wedding here and were also able to get alterations done by Emelina. If there is anyone I trust, it's Emelina and her team. Her store is exceptional and her entire staff treats you like family. I will be back for many years to come.

I didn't buy my dress from Emelina's but they handled all my alterations for my wedding on 10/31/15. The staff were patient and kind and worked hard to make sure my gown fit me like a glove. My dress was amazing and would not have been without the flawless work they did. Thank you Emelina's. I would highly recommend them.

Emelina and her crew are miracle workers! 2 months before my wedding, I needed MY dress! Not just some dress. I made an appointment and tried on several different dresses all in the style I wanted. Finally, I found it! Only problem, it wasn't my size. They went to work the day I picked it. They made me drop my jaw, by the end. I left there a week before my wedding with what I considered a miracle. Emelina was my fairy godmother! She and her crew definitely worked some magic!! I would recommend them to absolutely everyone!!!

Emelina Bridal is amazing! I was able to find my wedding dress, hair accessory and veil at her store. My bridesmaid dresses were from there as well! She worked so hard on fixing my dress to fit my body and made sure that it fit like a glove for my final fitting. Even thought my dress needed major alterations and I had to come in for 5 fittings, she assured me that she wanted me to look my best on my wedding day! I have purchased other dresses from her store in the past and would highly recommend her store to find your wedding dress. I received so many compliments on how beautiful my dress was and I could not be happier!!

Emelina's was absolutely wonderful! I had purchased bridesmaid gowns at the shop in the past, and always had wonderful experiences. I found "The One" for my own wedding, and it couldn't have been more perfect. And, let me tell you about how AMAZING their alterations are!! Emelina, herself, oversees EVERYTHING and runs that place like a beautiful, little drill sergeant (in the BEST way possible!) I sent my bridesmaids and quite a few guests who needed alterations over to her, as well. The women who work there are nice, accomodating, HONEST, and extremely helpful. It's a very warm atmosphere, unlike the large bridal chains. The dresses are unique and they have a large variety to choose from. The prices are more than reasonable, as well. Emelina's truly wants you to look and feel beautiful...and I highly recommend the shop!!

I was looking for a very simple yet elegant lace form fitting dress and I couldn't find anything even close to what I was looking for in the big bridal shops. I went to Emelina's and she had a few for me to chose from until I found my dream dress. The price was fantastic! The alterations were done correctly after just 1 dress fitting appointment and I didn't have to wait weeks and weeks like you have to do with the big shops. Mine were done in 1 week.

My name is CeCe-I was going to my Niece's wedding and I wanted to wear the dress I wore at my daughters wedding since I paid a fortune for it-one problem-that was seven years ago and the beaded top was very small for me.
When I arrived my daughter and I were greeted and introduced to Emelina and her seamstress.
They looked at the beaded top on me and it was at least 10 inches too small. This would be a miracle
to have this fixed, but I had all the confidence in her and her staff.
I thought this was going to impossible but they assured me it could be done, and it was! The beaded top looked as if nothing was done to it-the lace and beads looked perfect couldn't even tell it was worked on. People who were at my daughters wedding couldn't believe I could still wear the dress after all these years!
Thank you for making my Nieces wedding so comfortable-I will recommend you to all.
