Love, love, love this store! I had been every where looking for the perfect dress to fit my budget and couldn't find anything that i liked, then a co worker told me about Expressions In Silk. From the moment i walked in the door the ladies made me feel right at home. I told them my budget and they showed me about 15 dresses they had in that price range. I fell in love with the second dress i tried on! I purchased it that very same day and came back with my bridesmaids the following day. They have a great bridesmaid selection and my girls found a dress they all agreed on and below their budget, AWESOME! If you want great customer service and amazing prices, Expressions In Silk is the place to go!

The girls at Expression in Silk were always polite, friendly, and professional. I found my dream dress there the first time I walked in. Their promptness made it easy to get what I needed done, in my slim time schedule. Their prices were extremely well priced and their inventory was out of this world!

My bridesmaid's all got their dresses at Expressions in Silk, and were all gorgeous. Each one of my bridesmaids loved their experience, as well as myself. I would recommend these ladies to anyone who asked (to which I already have a few).

The initial atmosphere, walking into the store, whether it be your first time or your last time before the big day, always starts with a smile and ends with a smile.

Patti did an amazing job at our wedding. She was so professional and was very kind and cooperative, even when the weather was not! We got many compliments on her service and how loving and how heartfelt it was. Many people have asked me for her business number so they may get in contact with her for their wedding ceremonies. :) Our day went by so easily and flawlessly because of Patti.

Thank you all so much for everything. I wish I could have another wedding, just to spend it all with you gals again. Love you all, and thank you. -Nikki

Rev. Patti Rahuala was the officiant for our wedding. She did an amazing job. We were planning from out of state, she made it so easy for us to meet with her and was very timely on her email responses. She was very professional and really knew what she was doing. We would recommend her over and over again.
Thank you for everything Patti.

I met the owner through a Friend. My friend has been buying dresses from her from when she was in high school buying her Prom Dresses. The owner was VERY polite and so sweet. I was pregnant and she never made me feel (fat) or unfit to wear a pretty dress. I had been to many other stores to include, Davids Bridal, Perfect Fit and Davison Bridal and they all were rude, and unhelpful to my growing belly. My wedding came at short notice. We got engaged and then a month later, not to my knowledge became pregnant. So at 4 months, my finance then said, nope can't wait, getting married next month. So we started planning, actually changing plans. At any rate the most disappointing thing about getting married while pregnant was trying to find a dress, until I came to Expressions in Silk. They helped me feel beautiful. I was so pleased with my gown, simple but sweet. I now send EVERYONE I know to Patti and her staff. I will always go there first for any occasion. I've also been able to find 2 more dresses from the Shop that were the best price and altered to fit me PERFECT!!! Thanks Expressions in Silk Bridal & Prom you are AMAZING!!!

I couldn't be happier with Expressions in Silk Bridal. I started planning my wedding in 2007 and my bridesmaids bought dresses at that time. Well, plans changed and now in 2011, I'm giving it a go! We are engaged to be married in Sept. 2011. When I started trying to find my girl's original dresses, they had been DISCONTINUED by the manufacturer and also, they discontinued the COLOR of the fabric!! I called Expressions for some help and guidance. Patty was more than happy to work with me to try and find a solution. After about 20 mins in her shop, looking at different dress styles and fabric swatches, a light bulb came on and she remembered she had FIVE YARDS of that fabric in the back!!!! She made me a great deal and now all my girls will match! I'm so thrilled!! Thank you so much Patty for all of your help! You gals are wonderful and highly recomended in my book!!!!

We would call for updates on the dresses and every single one of my girls was told something different as to when they were shipped. We called the beginning of August and were told that they were 'shipped' and should be there in two weeks. Two weeks later (when no dresses arrived) they called again and were again told that the dressed has 'just shipped'. When we confronted the girl at the front desk of telling us that same thing two weeks before, she argued with us and claimed she never said that (even though my girls saved the voicemails from her where she said just that). The younger girl who answers the phone is TERRIBLE and RUDE. Even to me, the bride, she was rude, not accommodating, and argumentive. Her line was always that "nothing could be done" and thought it was acceptable for the dresses to be late because "one week before the wedding is plenty of time for the girls to get them altered". The girl who answers the phone because she gives the store a terrible reputation & doesn't understand the business mantra that "the customer is always right". We finally threatened to get a lawyer and contact the BBB about our dresses when they still weren't in by the beginning of September 2013. My wedding is September 28, 2013. Then, the owner FINALLY called the company and got the dresses rushed over. However, three of the dresses were too big for the girls, and two of them were too small. One of those dresses was so small that my maid of honor had to order an emergency dress from David's Bridal to wear because the original dress could not be let out enough for her to wear it. (David's Bridal, by the way, are going to get her dress in IN A WEEK). What upsets us most about this situation is instead of apologizing for mis-measuring her, the rude receptionist accused my bridesmaid of being at fault because "she probably gained weight". She's actually lost 10 lbs since buying the dress. We got no help or apologies from them at all.

Expressions in Silk Bridal & Prom responded with the following comments:

Maggie,

Thank you for your feedback on your experience at Expressions in Silk Bridal and Prom.

While working towards getting your dresses from the manufacturer, I was in constant communication with your mother on the status of the dresses as we were told she was the only "point person" and my staff and I was under the understanding she was communicating directly to you and the bridesmaids along the way. As the manufacturer selected is experiencing some issues with overseas shipments and they were not as timely as both of us would have liked, I worked almost daily with the manufacturer to ensure the dresses would arrive with sufficient time for any necessary alterations. They also paid for 2nd day shipping to get the dresses here ASAP. As for the rudeness of my store staff, I have addressed this immediately. This had not been brought to my attention during ANY of the multiple conversations with your mother, in person or on the telephone. Most bridesmaid dresses require some minor form of alterations to tailor to the person's proportions and this was discussed with each bridesmaid at the time of ordering. The last bridesmaid to pick up her dress on Friday, September 13, choose not to try the dress on before she left. I apologized multiple times to your mother (as I was not allowed to speak to you) about the situation and did everything we could to accommodate your bridal party. I am sorry that you and the young ladies feel dissatisfied. After 30 plus years in bridal, we strive to ensure our customers are satisfied. I've also been in the Swartz Creek area for over 18 years and have many repeat customers. We are not the only store experiencing late shipments, it is happening across the country. I do thank you for your patronage of our store and again am sorry we were unable to meet your expectation.
