LOVED my entire experience at French Bridals! The boutique is so beautiful and the staff is extremely welcoming. I worked with Linda and she was extremely knowledgable, attentive, and really made my experience fun. I did not feel pressured at all, which is the vibe of many other bridal shops. I would definitely recommend French Bridals!

I have always wanted to wear my mother's wedding dress (which belonged to her aunt before her), but given it's history, you can imagine its style... French Bridals was able to make alterations--including removing the sleeves--to beautifully bring it into this millennium. They did an amazing job!

French Bridals was amazing! After months of dress shopping and going around to different places, I was almost at my limit. As soon as I walked in it felt comforting. That's when Linda approached us, she was very sweet and wonderful. I had brought along my sister and mother and as soon as I put on my first dress I knew it was the one! I chose a sweetheart, chiffon empire waist dress. It was perfect, and when it had arrived in my size I fell in love with it all over again (after waiting for the dress). I had my first fitting and it went really well, I planned to lose a few pounds before the wedding and was concerned that the alterations would be noticeable. I was nervous for my second fitting but when I tried the dress on it fit perfecting! You couldn't even tell that they had to take it in! I even bought some accessories to match along with the bridesmaids dresses, which made things a lot simpler. Linda was amazing and my dress turned out perfect for my wedding. Couldn't have had a smoother experience! I would really recommend brides to go to the shop if they are in the North Shore area. It was truly a great experience!!

Our daughter found her beautiful dress at French Bridals after going to many bridal shops. Our experience at French Bridals was very positive. We appreciated that, after being asked if we needed help and said we'd just like to look around, we were left to ourselves to look at what we wanted to and to have our privacy. When we needed help, someone was there. The selection was very different from the larger stores where there are lots of dresses but they all seemed the same. French Bridals had a very unique and interesting selection and our daughter found the perfect dress for her. It was very unconventional and exactly what she was looking for. If we could have given more stars for value, we would have because no where could my daughter have found the dress she loved for that good a value.

I loved my dress from French Bridals! After going to David Bridal, I wanted a boutique experience. I tried on just a few styles of beautiful dresses before I found the one! Linda did not pressure me to make a sale; she listened to what I wanted and really helped me find the perfect dress.

My mother also found her MOB dress here. They had many styles beyond the very conservative typical MOB dresses; the gown she found was gorgeous. We both had our alterations done by the seamstress, Rosetta, at French Bridals. She was amazing, talented, and personable. She flawlessly made the adjustments we needed to feel confident and look great!

We really enjoyed our experiences at French Bridals and would recommend them for brides or mothers of the bride!

My dress was A-maz-ing! I was not one of those "put on the dress and cry because you just know it's the one" kind of brides. The dress I chose I had decided that it was the best one I had tried on yet, and when I said that, the salon owner said "well if you want that dress I have to order it by Friday because the lace is from Fance and is being discontinued" Naturally I thought, "well there's no pressure there!" but it didn't matter. That was my dress and I chose that and 6 months later it had been hand made in my size and was absolutely perfect. Alterations were easy and on time, and the woman who does them is a sweetheart! I love my dress and with I could wear it all the time!

The ladies at French Bridal's were phenomenal. I wasn't sure what I was looking for in a dress as I bought it far in advance and they selected the perfect dress! I was also an out of state bride and they were extremely accommodating in appointment times and services. They gave me a discount for purchasing all accessories there and my wedding pictures prove they are fantastic! The seamstress was flawless and she listened to my needs and could even read my face when I was too nervous to speak up because I didn't want to be too picky. They helped me with shoes, veil, and so on. Dress shopping can be a very overwhelming experience but not here! I knew everything would be great and I trusted them completely!

French Bridal was wonderful to do business with. Small shop with many options and selections. Excellent customer service. The dress was ordered too big but not their fault I lost weight.
I was told with the amount of alterations that were needed I should take the dress to Alterations by Rosa Jefferson Ave Salem Mass.
Rosa transformed a dress that was 3 sizes too large to the perfect fit. While I was having my fittings with Rosa I saw her help many desperate brides last minute. She never says no to anyone and there is no job she will not undertake even the impossible, like my dress. She said don't worry I will fix it and she did.. Thanks to French Bridal & Rosa.. Kim

I was very pleased with not only my dress from French Bridals, but also the sales staff. I never felt pressured and they were very accomodating when I had my choice narrowed down to 2 and had to keep trying them on! :) Linda, the owner, was very attentive and you could tell she knew what she was doing. The prices were a bit steeper then some discount dress stores, but you are getting a quality dress.

This is the only bridal shop I went to! They were perfect. They know what type of dress looks the best on which body, which is just what anyone needs. I called and made an appointment. The fourth dress I tried on was the one! I just knew it! They have bras, pedicoats, shoes, jewelry, veils, etc. The seamstress there is very good. The only issue I had was that my bustle fell apart before the dancing started...thank god for saftey pins! They were always nice and responded to my messages. Also, when my mother was visiting from California, they were able to fit us in so that she could see the dress.

I found an elegant, classic, one-of-a-kind dress here after much frustration in my search and visits to six other bridal shops. It is a beautiful well-made dress from their own collection. I love that I will wear a wedding gown that was made locally and is truly one of a kind. While I spent more than I had originally wanted to, I also believe I got an excellent price for the quality of the dress...it is 100% silk, after all!

My overall experience at French Bridals was good and their selection is very high quality. Rosetta, in alterations is also a true professional and I would recommend her to my friends 3 times over. There were a few times during the final fitting process where my calls were not returned and I had to make an extra effort to get someone on the phone for an unplanned appointment that was needed the week before the wedding. They did accomodate me and the dress was stunning. I would rccommend French Bridals if you have extra money to spend and are looking for a smaller dress shop.

After a lot of bridal shops, I came to French Bridals. The sales woman asked me a few questions about what I liked and wanted, and she pulled a dress for me that she thought I would like. She let me pick out some others to try on too. The dress she picked was perfect, flattering and within my price range. I loved it! I came back to purchase it the next day with my mother. Once I agreed to purchase, I felt a lot on pressure to buy other items that I didn't want from the store which is annoying, but not too awful. They always seemed snobby when I declined their request to buy their overpriced tacky accessories.
The alterations process was easy and fairly priced. Rosetta is a real pro!
My dress looked perfect the day of the wedding and that's all that really mattered.

French Bridals was the first and only dress shop I went to for my wedding gown. I had driven by this dress shop for years and always wanted to check it out. I made my dress appointment and had Linda, the owner assist me. She was great to work with and did not push me at all just to make a sale. She helped me stay within my budget and I found the dress of my dreams! She had treated me so well and I left there feeling extremely satisfied. They did a great job with my alterations and my gown was absolutely beautiful. I did not want to take it off on my wedding day.
I decided to take my bridesmaids there for their dresses and what a nightmare it became. I had an appointment and no one wanted to help us out. Linda was not there, so we had another woman assist. They had no selection and were no help, once we decided to leave a woman there decided to help and became so pushy. Needless to say, the bridesmaids went elsewhere. French Bridals was wonderful for me as the bride, but not so much for the bridesmaids.

French Bridals was wonderful for me as the bride, but not so much for the bridesmaids. Read less

Love, love, love the dress...a bit pricey though...now that they're out of the farms, perhaps they'll be more accessible to more people. Excellent attention while at the store. Should have explained the bustle better though.

I really hated the service here and if i didn't find the perfect dress here I wouldn't of shopped here. The lady was extremely rude and wasn't happy that I wasn't spending more money. They weren't happy when I went to try on my dress for the first fitting. The lady wasn't happy that I was wanting to stand up and look in the mirror. The dress was beautiful!

After visiting David's Bridal and Alfred Angelo, I wanted to go to a smaller boutique with designer dresses to see the difference in quality. I was hoping it would be similar to the TV shows where the owner/consultants would spend 1 on 1 time with you choosing the perfect dress for you. My friend and I dropped in on a whim which the owner, "Mrs. French" as she calls herself, was not pleased about. She had me fill out a questionere sheet to find out more about me, budget, venue etc. She then pulled a couple dresses which had nothing to do with what I said I was looking for and were 500-1,000$ over my budget of 1,000$. She helped me put on the first dress and then disappeared. My friend and I pretty much ran our own appointment. Apparently she doesn't care if clients rip anything or get make-up all over her sample gowns? My friend ended up pulling gowns for me and helped me put them on. I did end up finding a gown I loved, and once the owner heard that I loved the dress she all of appeared and started pressuring me to order the gown. I caved and ended up putting down a deposit, later to find out it was non-refundable. The owner did not tell me that. The next time I went in to show my mother, grandmother and bridesmaids, I did make an appointment. The owner was still equally miserable towards us. Since she knew I wanted that dress she started pressuring me on veils, accessories and alterations, not offering any discount. Once I decided I would definitely buy the dress, I found I would have to pay for it in full that day, or lose my 100$ deposit. The entire experience was so stressful and upsetting. I am happy with my gown but would never step foot in that shop ever again and would never recommend anyone go there. I feel very jipped of that perfect bridal moment and wish I could take it back. On top of it, I ended up spending 500$ more than my budget. Ugh!

This was the fourth bridal shop that my friends and I visited in search of a dress; and unfortunately the experience was not a good one for a number of reasons. Unlike the other stores who listened to my desires about the style of dress and veil that I wanted, the ladies here were more concerned with choosing what they liked. I acquiesced and tried on the dresses...I figured "You never know, maybe one of them will be it." This was not the most disturbing aspect of the visit, however...for some reason, the clerk decided to stay in the dressing room while I undressed. This lack of privacy was quite disconcerting. No other shop had done this and I'm not sure why French Bridals would do such a thing. Strange. After trying on 5 dresses, I found a dress that was okay; however, when I asked who the designer was the clerk said she didn't know (you see the label had been cut from the dress). This was yet another red flag for me that customer service and professionalism were lacking at this shop and we called it quits after that.

My sister and I went in to look at Bridal gowns and maid of honor dresses. I did not have an appointment, but there were no other bridal appointments in the store. The attendant was almost rude to my sister and I. I felt like I was intruding on her and really putting her out to try on dresses. She told me "I better be in a buying mindset because if I wait all the dresses will be gone.." it wasn't in a helpful way either. It was more like "dont waste my time unless you will buy from me" She pulled three dresses from the rack for me, offered no assistance in trying them on and then disappeared. After I finished trying on the dresses she never came back or said thanks for coming in. We left without even looking at the bridesmaid dresses. Overall it was a really negative experience and I wouldn't buy from them even if they had the perfect dress just based on their rotten attitude.

Working with French Bridals was a nightmare. It was the first bridal shop I went to look at. I found a dress that I loved, but I wondered if I should get the fourth dress I tried on. I was pushed to purchase since if I purchased the first time I would get 10% off. I loved the dress, so I decided to go with it. I was given the designer's name and when I went home I searched for it online so I could look at it again and send it to friends. I could not find the dress online. I contacted French Bridals and they said indeed that was the designer but the pictures were no longer available online because it was from the previous season's line. When the dress arrived and I went in for my fitting, my mother was very disappointed with the quality of the dress. It did not seem like the same material and in the back there were many visible pin holes and fabric hanging down in the back. Finally, the label on the dress, was not the designer of the original dress I tried on. We left pretty disappointed and quite confused. My mother went back the next day asking to see the sample that I tried on and the new dress. The sample was completely stripped of the beading and under fabric. We were told that another bride liked the beading and wanted it on her dress, my mom suspected that the beading from the sample was now on my dress. We inquired with the original designer of the sample dress and they do not work with French Bridals and certainly did not make a dress for me. I called owner of French Bridal and she finally admitted that the original sample dress that I tried on was discontinued so they added it to their own line French Expressions (or something like that). French Bridals is very sketchy. They are not up front about their dresses, the designers, and where the dresses are made. I would never recommend French Bridals for any occasion.
