Greta is a character! Very warm and receptive. I love my dress, but I do feel it was a bit overpriced.

I found my visit to Greta's Bridal shop fairly good. As many others have mentioned, Greta does have somewhat of an attitude and can come off a little rude. I think that's one thing she needs to work on as a salesman.. to be nice and respectful to the customers and staff. She didn't come off too rude to me or my mom or the other customers while I was there, but she was being snippy to one of her employees that seemed to be somewhat new. Anyways, Greta cared about what I was looking for and did her best to find it. I had my heart set on a particular style, and she found one that was pretty close to it. Though instead of just deciding on it, I wanted to keep looking around. What I feared before going to a bridal shop was that I would feel pressured into buying a dress, but what I loved about Greta was that she wasn't pushy (unlike some other bridal shops I went to). I left that day knowing, if I couldn't find a dress somewhere else, I could always return and get that dress. She also continued looking for dresses with my style in mind, and even sent me pictures of it via email. I know every visit is different with various experiences, and I know I didn't buy anything, but my visit overall was good.

I found my dress here and it was absolutely beautiful. I had a room to myself to try on dresses and they brought as many as I needed in. They were polite and specifically only picked dresses in my price range.

I bought my wedding dress and bridesmaid dresses at Greta's. I worked with Lauren to find my dress and the girls dresses. I was very pleased with the service I received from Lauren when I worked with her. She didn't push me to pick a dress, she let me pick some I wanted to try and then she brought some others that she thought I might like. I ended up with the dress of my dreams- it is drop dead gorgeous! Since I paid for my dress in full I was able to get 10% off my veil which was nice. I also got 10% the bridesmaid dresses since I ordered them from Greta's as well. My alterations were done at Greta's too and I was surprised how affordable they were. Greta's staff was always willing to help as much as they could and they kept in contact with me to update me on anything new with my dress or the girls dresses.

I loved my dress from Greta's. I could have driven to Chicago and gotten a more expensive dress, but I know I wouldn't have gotten nearly the service and attention I got at Greta's. From the first day when Pat spent three hours with me trying on dresses, to the next week when I tried on a few more and then bought one off the rack at a discount, to my three fittings with Faith (for only $75 dollars total), I felt like my business was appreciated and that I got a dress I loved!

The Mori Lee dress I ended up with was just what I wanted, fit great, and photographed even better than I expected.

When we had some problems with the fit of the groom's clothing (ordered from Jim's), Greta was on the phone after hours calming me down and trying to track down garments with a better fit. It turns out that Jim's doesn't carry tall sizes in ivory shirts and never notified Greta's about that, so the issue wasn't her mistake at all, but she tried to fix it anyway. We appreciate all that Greta and her team did to make our wedding great.

I'm only within the beginning stages of the dresses- I've purchased my wedding dress and my bridesmaids are handling their orders. I've had such a pleasure of working with their consultant Leah. She is always responsive to my questions, doesn't mind if I come in to re-try the dress because I'm having second thoughts, etc. The negative reviews make me nervous about when it comes to the alterations but we'll see when I get there next year. Wish it didn't take so long for the dress to get in but I'm sure there is not much you can do about that. So in the meantime, I'm giving them all 5's because LEAH's service has been exceptional.

Greta's was my second stop to search for the perfect dress on my wedding day. The location isn't ideal and the building is a bit old, but don't let those things fool you - they have so many dresses to choose from! It was only the second dress I tried on and I knew that was the one! We purchased the dress and left it there until I returned to have it altered by their seamstress months later. The seamstress immediately noticed that the hooks for the corset were frayed, which we don't remember when I bought the dress. Greta came to take a look and had the seamstress fix it for us at no charge! The day of my wedding one of the hooks came loose, but have no fear my mother has a degree in home economics. I don't blame Greta's for this stressful two minutes, just one of those things. I received so many compliments on my dress and I'm so happy with the decision I made to chose Greta's!
