Salespeople were very friendly and very helpful when it came to finding my dream dress! My appointment ran over the allotted time and even though the store was closing everyone stayed to make sure I was happy with my dress! I liked that they took my measurements, showed me on the designer's chart where I fell, and then had me try on a dress from the same designer in the size I was ordering - I know exactly how my dress will fit and feel!

The Expressions team is wonderful. I got both my dress and my bridesmaid dresses from there. They were so helpful and friendly. They were willing to work with my crazy schedule and the schedule of my family and bridal party. We had to bring young children with us and they were FANTASTIC with them! Anyone who is looking for affordable dresses and a wonderful experience should use them :)

This bridal shop is the best! The manager, Melissa, and the ladies are so upbeat and sweet; they make everyone feel like a million bucks! I am an older bride (58) and wondered how I would feel in a salon with a lot of young girls trying on dresses. I shouldn't have worried at all; it was a WONDERFUL experience! Would highly recommend them!

I found my dress a year before my wedding and the staff was perfect. Being an out of area bride they worked with my schedule and the times that I was coming in to Cleveland for fittings. They also stored my dress until it was steamed and ready to go on my wedding day, I could not be more pleased with the service that I received.

I liked the women working at Expressions. My problem was with the seamstress. I was VERY disappointed in her work. She switched appointments on my twice and did not remember when she moved my appointment to. I had to go back twice for alterations when my dress did not need much done to it. On my wedding day I found 6 pins still in my dress and 1 giant safety pin. The girls working there were very helpful, but I wish I would have gotten my alterations done somewhere else. It was not worth the headache.

We had a few snags at the very end of the process, but overall, owner Marcy and consultant Casie were fabulous to work with. I went in with quite a crew - my future mother and grandmother-in-law, three bridesmaids, my grandmother, and a bridesmaid's daughter and her friend. Casie and the crew saw the need and moved us to our own area on the back side of the store - and it could not have been more perfect. We had lots of room to spread out, lots of room for fun! Casie brought me a variety of dresses and when she pulled out the Mori Lee that turned out to be The One, she was absolutely right when she said "they're going to love this one!" I had the moment - the one with the gasps and tears - and Expressions helped make it even more special. My mother in law brought champagne and glasses and - contrary to company policy - the staff let us drink it in celebration (away from the dresses of course!) It was a great day, a great moment - and was that way because Casie and her crew made it so. Things get crazy in the wedding world, so it's in your best interest to keep on top of your dress' progress - but stay on top of everything and everyone - that's not a knock on Expressions - just the reality of the wedding industry! Thanks Expressions!!!

Some of the staff is excellent, and some of the staff is not. When I first went in I had Denise who was so full of energy and a joy to work with. I felt like I was actually on Say Yes to the Dress. She asked me what I liked and didn't like and continued to pull dresses for me. I didn't have to lift one finger (other than trying on). I left without a dress that time as it was my very first time every trying on a dress and I wasn't ready to commit. The second time I went back after having a horrible experience with David's Bridal. I don't know who my consultant was but she was not very helpful. I did end up finding a dress I fell in love with but had to come back to get my mom's approval! The day I came back with my mom we had Carol (I think) who went above and beyond as well. I was there to try on one dress but she put me in more so my mom could compare (She had not gone with my any other time due to our busy busy lives). It was nice that even though I wasn't scheduled for a full appointment she made time, she even let me go over informing me she would have to tend to another bride. Great customer service!

I went here for my alterations and maid of honor gown because I had gotten my gown in Pittsburgh Alfred Angelo. Well my alterations went well, but when I picked it up the owner was very rude to me when I asked where my moh dress was. My moh called in her order a few days after getting fitted and the woman suggested a size we thought would be too big, but trusted her. She gave them her card in February and they didn't order it until March. I was getting married in August. Well as we waited to hear anything around July, when it should have been in, no one knew where it was or anything! A girl finally said they made a mistake and ordered 12 of that dress and when my moh said if that happened at her job she'd be fired. The woman's response was it was the owner she's not getting fired. The girl was very rude and all we did was order one dress from them. When her dress finally came in, in August a couple weeks before the wedding it was huge! We asked for free alterations for all the stress and the owner gave us free steaming. I ended up taking mine there, but my moh found a girl who we were referred to and did it for 45$ with alterations. I will never go back to these ladies.

I am a little surprised to see such positive reviews, since our experience thus far has been pretty bad. We ordered 5 bridesmaid dresses in early April (for a Sept. 21 wedding) and they still have not arrived. The dresses were promised by August 1st -- which came and went with no dresses. For the past 3 weeks, they have told the bride that the dresses are en route, that they'll be here on Monday, they are in the distribution center and should arrive Wednesday, etc., etc. Now we are 4 weeks past the target delivery date -- still no dresses.

Then yesterday, we were infomed that they do not have a tracking number for the dresses so they don't know where they are. After an email exchange with the distributor rep, at this point it appears that the dresses are still in China and there is a realistic possibility that they will not arrive before the wedding in 3 weeks!

When asked why we were told they were en route when the staff really had no idea where they were, the owner stated she "didn't know why anyone would say that." Overall, the store does not seem to be overly worried/concerned about the fact that our dresses are not here and no delivery date is confirmed.

I hope that I am able to update this post with a more positive review when this issue is solved. But past experience is not giving me much hope. In the meantime, we're trying to figure out a contingency plan in case the dresses never arrive.

My mom and I went to Expressions first when looking for wedding dresses. Unfortunately I was unable to find exactly what I was looking for in my price range, so we ended up buying a dress at another store. After my dress came in, both my mom and I were highly disappointed with the way the people in the store treated us and decided we didn't want to trust them with alterations. So, we went back to Expressions and could not have been happier. I had been so upset with the way the dress originally came in, but the lady working with us on alterations was able to calm me down almost immediately with just a few minutes of pinning. Every time we went into Expressions for the next few fittings we were greeted with many happy and willing to help people. I definitely recommend them for any formal dress occasion.

The team at Expressions bridal in Mentor, Ohio, is great! The shop is small, but the staff is extremely knowledgable and willing to help out wherever they can. The owner was even willing to order my dress in and give me a discount compared to what I was quoted at a larger store in Cleveland! They have in house seamstresses for alterations and they are also affordable.

When it came down to my gown... I had no issues whatsoever. My dress was beautiful and delivered on time. It fit great too! I had 6 girls in my wedding... and we had 3 issues with dresses. One came in with stains, one had buttons fall off, and one was improperly fitted by a worker and came in a size too small. It took a little bit of fighting to get them to rectify the problems- They have a strict no return policy and they dresses come in with barely any time to order a new dress should something like this arise. Some staff was a little rude... some staff there was very nice and helpful, as you get with any company. If you talk to anyone there, I recommend seeing Melissa! She rocks and is on top of her game and gets stuff done.

I had a wonderful experience at Expressions from the very beginning. I tried on several dresses at different stores and they did not make me feel pressured to choose them. My maid of honor and I really enjoyed being able to browse the store on our own and pick out as many dresses as we wanted. They also pulled a few that they thought we might like. In the end they had some of the best service compared to the other stores I looked at. They also had a large enough selection to find something without being too overwhelmed by the number of dresses. They ordered my dress and it was in within a week of their estimated time. I tried it on several times and I also did my fittings there which was nice because I liked having the dress in the same place. Right before the wedding they steamed it too! The whole experience was fabulous. They were professional and courteous during the whole experience! There were lots of hugs at the end!!
I was not able to get my bridesmaids dresses there because they did not have any of the 5 we wanted to try on from Alfred Angelo so we went elsewhere for those. They would have been able to order them but we wanted to try them on first.

Great job to all the ladies at Expressions!!

This place was awesome!!! This place exceeded my expectations a million times over. The ladies there were so nice, friendly and fun! The don't work on commission so they are not pressured to make a sale. I had such a pleasant experience each time going in the showroom, I would definately go back for any formal wear purchase. The prices were reasonable considering I purchased my wedding gown and two of my bridesmaids dresses from them. I love the communication and ease they made the whole process for me. I was please with the selection of dresses that they had to choose from even though I bought the second dress I tried on! Can't wait to do business with them again!

I was so impressed with Expressions. I was able to look at as many dresses as I wanted and the women there were so helpful and great to work with. They helped me find dresses in the styles that I knew I liked, but also offered me some alternatives, just so I wasn’t limiting my search. I had a great time trying on dresses (and this is from someone who hates shopping simply because trying on clothes is so annoying) and I found the perfect dress on my first attempt to start looking to see what was out there. Shopping at Expressions was a great experience and I’d definitely recommend starting your search there (and likely ending it).

Loved working with the ladies at Expressions. I absolutely love my dress that I got from them! Excellent service from everyone I dealt with. They made the dress shopping process so easy, and offer everything a bride needs for the day, and even the cleaning and preservation after the wedding. Highly recommend!

My initial thought of this shop was negative due to a comment made when I first walked in. I only had two and a half months before my wedding and I was told that I "should" have started looking six months ago. I was only engaged 3 months ago. I would have walked out but my sister and my mom were there to help me navigate the tons of dresses. Turns out that the salesperson finally was able to find a dress for me that I totally fell in love with. It was a beautiful gown that I bought off the rack. Then the alterations went perfectly. Jo was amazing and so wonderful to work with. She made the rest of the experience amazing. Thanks Jo.

Melissa is the go to girl!Went back to try on one of my two favorites and found it on the off the rack! It was half price! I have no regrets it was "my dress". Seriously, ask for Melissa or even better call and find out when you can meet with her. Any other even the manager was a waste of time. She spent half the time on the phone during one fitting and the next visit I had to repeatedly ask for items while the sales lady helped other customers who had come in after me!

First- THANK YOU for making appointments.

Now that I have that out of the way....

Expressions Bridal and Formal was one of the best decisions I could ever have made as a bride. I was married on July 2, 2011, but my journey with my dress began back in September of 2010. It was there that I met the owner, and also when I met Denise. Trying on dresses is stressful, there are times when you want to cry because the size 0 sample barely fits over your rear or other times when that big poufy princess dress does not look right on your 5'4" frame. Yet, when you know its the one, it really is.

I bought an Essense of Australia dress from this store and it was the one piece I wore that made me truly feel like a beautiful bride. The staff even sighs when they know its the one (they see it on your face!) But, aside from the unbelievably beautiful attire they have for brides, maids, and mothers, they also truly cater to making the bride feel special. Upon entering the store the girls would actually KNOW my name. They would celebrate my excitement and also help me with any problems. Alterations are also available in house and were unbelievably reasonable! The steaming service was phenomenal and completely prompt. Brides - if you want the perfect dress, the most personalized service, and the beginning of your adventure with your dress to be one in a million - than this is where you head.

To the gals in the store - thank you for all you have done for me in helping provide me the perfect dress!

Expressions Bridal went above and beyond for myself and all my bridesmaids. They got everything in on time, even though we ordered the girls dresses late. The sized everyone prefectly... most only needed hemmed. The seamstress was awesome and a quick turn-around time!!!
My dress was unbelieveable. They gave honest opinions about each dress I tried on and would spend hours with me everytime that I was there. I even got my shoes from there... the dye job matched my off white dress perfectly!!! I had such great service there, I ordered my bridesmaid dress for a wedding Im a part of in September from there!!!

Excellent service!! I love this little bridal shop as opposed to the big chains. The staff was fantastic and very upbeat. The lady helping us try on dresses was very helpful and ready to bring over as many dresses as I wanted. I went in for their $99 gown sale and got my dress for just that!! But, even still, I don't think I saw a dress in there that was over $1000. Dresses were beautiful and I had so much fun trying them on! Alterations were reasonably priced and done very well. I would highly recommend this store to anyone!

I got my bridesmaid dresses from expressions but not my gown, I got my gown at David's Bridal. But I really wanted Alfred Angelo bridesmaid dresses and expressions was the closest shop to me that had them. They made it really easy for me to order dresses for all my out of town bridesmaids. I did have to keep calling to check up on delivery because they were later than expected. You just have to allow plenty of time for these special orders. The staff was friendly.

They are great! And you can't beat the price--I got my dress for $100 off the marked price during a sale they were having. $100 can make a big difference to those on a budget. Their staff were very courteous and alterations are included in the price. When I got my dress it fit perfectly! They will press it right before your wedding and have it back to you within 48 hours. I tried my dress on at another location as well but chose Expressions because they had a great deal, a great location for me, and great customer service.

Highly recommend!!

Expressions was the fourth dress shop I visited and is where I found my dress for the big day. I thought I knew what I was looking for, but the staff was very helpful and without them I would not have found the perfect dress. I never would have picked the dress off the rack, but they insisted that I try it on anyway and I fell in love when I saw myself in it.

This was the first bridal shop I went to and I fell in love. The big David's Bridal and Catan's just didn't do it for me after the personal service I received at Expressions. The helped me try on 14 dresses--I picked 4 that were my "favorites" and went in 2 times a week for several months to try them on so I could make my decision. Once I chose a dress, I ordered it (almost 1 year from the date, give or take a week or so). The expected delivery date was 6 months--it took almost 9 for it to come in. When I called Marcy in a panic because my dress hadn't come in, she assured me that it was coming, and took the initiative to call the company every week until it was delivered! They are awesome!

Absolutely wonderful to work with!!! I mostly dealt with the owner of the store and she is absolutely phenomenal! Depending on what you are looking for, can get a little pricey. However, the service makes up for any extra cash spent! I would recommend this vendor to anyone. Used Expressions to purchase my wedding gown and all 5 of my bridesmaid gowns.

Well I have mixed reviews. The people that work there are very rude and will let you wait in the dressing room without asking if you need any help. I found my dress there and it was reasonably priced because I found it on the sale rack. Thank gosh I didnt have to order it, they said 4-6 months is the norm.

I found the most beautiful wedding gown at Expressions Bridal. I was looking for the perfect gown and on whim I happen to drive pass Expressions and decided to turn around and check them out, but I saw a sign saying that you need a appointment to be seen and I said to myself I'm going in any way. The staff greeted me any way without an appointment. I was so impressed with all of the gowns that they had in the store. The staff made me feel very relaxed,comfortable and at ease about what color, style,design of gown that fit my personality and my body. Thanks to all of the staff at Expressions Bridal& Formal for all of your service that you have provided for me and most of all thanks for making me laugh, because I needed that the most.
