I felt totally comfortable and welcome at Eva's. The store isn't too easy to get to. I had to take the el to the harlem bus, but it was worth it for the gorgeous dress I ordered and the value. I got a gorgeous Alfred Angelo gown for $900 including tax. Love it!

The lady that helped me here was GREAT! I went to a different boutique right before this one where I felt pressured to buy that day to receive any sort of discount (and the discount was a joke), but didn't feel any pressure here. She was also giving tips and advice on which designer allows discounts and how much of a discount before I tried them on.

I came to Eva's to try on a specific dress (that apparently was hard to find; not many boutiques had this dress as sample to try on) and the lady couldn't locate it. I kept telling her not worry about it, but she was persistent! She was able to locate it at the end of the appointment, and good thing she did, because that's was the dress I went with!

All in all, this boutique was great. I felt no pressure, the staff was so helpful and the dresses were beautiful. Only downside was that I wasn't aware of the cash policy: they only accept cash when you pick up your dress and pay the remaining balance. But their prices were so reasonable that it wasn't a huge balance!

My sister and I went to Eva's in search of dresses for my bridal party. My consultant was Rama and she was absolutely the best consultant I've encountered since we began our process. She asked all the right questions (price range, colors, style) and then began going over the selection available based on what we were looking for. When it came time to try on dresses, there were a few that were too small for my sister to try on and Rama went as far as to offer to try on the styles herself so that we could can an idea on what they would look like. So accommodating! Finally, once we had narrowed our selection down to two dresses, even though I had not purchased my wedding gown from Eva's, the manager allowed me to try on my dress (which they had on the sales floor) and stand next to my sister so that I could get a better visual as to what would look best. The staff here was by far the nicest I've dealt with and beyond accommodating and friendly. If you're looking for good service, look no further, these girls will make sure you are happy. Thanks ladies!

On first impression, Eva's Bridals is an older, outdated store as I read in reviews before going there. It could definitely use some new carpet and paint. However, prices are still on the high end. I was pressured into buying a sample dress that was on sale for about 2/3 or 1/2 the original price because they will not hold anything. They tell you that if you don't buy it on the spot, it could be gone the next day. The sample dress was an older, discontinued style that was still modern looking.

The sales associate I worked with, Kay, actually seemed nice (but the cashier/associate in the reception area was very rude). I also read other reviews that they are nice to you until you buy a dress, or until they know you are not going to buy anything, and I found this to be true. Kay did tell us the policy was not to allow any photos, but my mom snuck some while Kay wasn't in the dressing room. I have heard that some sales associates at Eva's Bridals don't help you get in the dresses to try them on, but Kay was very helpful with this and clamped the dresses.

I bought my dress there and they held it for several months so I wouldn't have to store it, which was nice. I wasn't sure I wanted to get it altered there because I couldn't find many reviews on actual alterations at the store, except there were plenty of reviews on bad customer experiences with dress shopping at Eva's Bridals. The dress was huge because it was a sample size (12) and I am a 4-6, so alterations were very important in getting the dress to look right.

Ultimately, I appreciated that they have a sales room where you can look through dresses on your own and you can buy off the rack right away. I did have buyer's remorse for a long time after being pressured to buy the dress immediately (also because I found it online in my size and closer to my size for cheaper or similar prices), but luckily I found a seamstress elsewhere recommended by a friend to make it look beautiful. :)

Eva's was the first and last place I went to find a dress. My consultant was Gina and she was very friendly and listened to my mother's and my requests. After she asked us for a price point, she showed us the areas of the salon where we could find dresses in the budget. She didn't hover but let us pull dresses we were interested in off the rack. Once we were finished looking, she brought us to a fitting room and her demeanor was very professional but warm.

I bought my dress and my veil from Eva's in June. A couple months later, I changed my mind about the length of the veil. I called Gina and she got back to me right away. Unfortunately I couldn't change the veil ORD because the designer already started production, but Gina was very reassuring on the phone and helped me realize that the original veil I chose would be perfect.

I bought my dress here, and it is beautiful! My mom and many people we know have gotten their dresses here, and I can see why! They really take care of you and listen to your budget and what you want! I got a great price for my dress. When looking, my mom, the consultant and I all picked out dresses that we thought would work for me, since I didn't know exactly what I wanted. And we don't remember who actually picked out the dress, but we all agreed we loved it!
