Harold's was the first and last place I looked for a gown. After trying on 5 dresses there, I quickly knew what I wanted, and Megan came back in the room with dress #6. This was THE DRESS! It was absolutely perfect! She did an amazing job of listening to what I wanted and then finding it! My dress was elegant and fun and I didn't want to take it off after my wedding! Thank you Harold's for finding my dream dress!

I really enjoyed my experience at Harold's. I was to book an appointment without a long wait time and was allowed to walk through the store with my sister and look for dresses I was interested in trying on. My consultant also pulled a number of additional dresses for me to try based on the examples I brought in. She pulled dresses that fit what I was looking for and which included the dress I eventually bought. I never felt rushed through the appointment and I didn't feel pressured to buy something right there, right then even though I was considering purchasing a sample (which could have easily been turned into a high pressure situation). I went back a few days later and put a deposit down on my dress - when I went in, the consultant instantly recognized me and remembered which dress I wanted. Thank you for a fantastic dress-buying experience!

Harolds is a great place to find a Beautiful quality dress for a reasonable price. They have so many to choose from. They have wedding gowns in all price ranges... The person at Harolds who helped me find my wedding gown was very patient and helpful... I tried on dress after dress until I was tossed between 2!! In the end I found a beautiful Maggie Sottero dress that was in my price range($750.00). Its beautiful!
They charge a crazy amount for alterations so I went to Auroras in Guilford. Ask for Vivian(203-453-55830)
I found all of my accessories with her. Her daughter made my jewlery, and Vivian made my veil and she sold me my wedding shoes and died them the color I wanted!!!!
I FELT AND LOOKED LIKE A BRIDE!

From start to finish Harolds was amazing to work with for my recent wedding. While shopping for my wedding dress they were the first stop we made and after working with their sales consultant Megan, I knew I wanted to buy my dress from them. As I continued to look at other bridal stores in the area, NONE of them met Harolds level of professionalism. All my bridesmaids bought their dresses through Harolds and when it was time to get tuxes we also went with Harolds and the guys looked amazing while matching the bridesmaids perfectly! Every time we had a wonderful experience! I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for bridal attire!

Harold's was fantastic to deal with. We went there the first day I was looking for dresses, and found a beautiful Maggie Sottero dress called Saratoga there. I got a real deal on it, because they were (supposedly, at the time) going to discontinue the Maggie collection, and therefore didn't need the sample any more. I had three alteration appointments- the first time, the seamstress was a little short with me, but the other two times she was super friendly and talked about her kids, her day, etc as we asked. The dress fit perfectly the day of, even though we had some trouble altering the bust line previously. The bustle was really convenient too, because they used different color strings to show my BMs & mom which strings were pulled together. Every time I went there, I saw the same 3-4 women working in the store, so they clearly have a dedicated staff. The store itself has a large collection of wedding dresses, BM dresses, tuxes, and prom dresses. They gave us a discount for buying a BM dress and wedding dress there, and we had no problem ordering the BM dress and getting it on time even though we ordered very close to the cut off date for rush shipping costs.

Harold's dressed us all. My parents, My husband and the groomsmen and ME! From the beginning they were so helpful. They stayed in constant contact with us to make sure that we received everything on time and were ready to walk down the aisle in style! We just LOVE Megan and Lisa

I started at one store and after trying on twelve gowns decided to give Harold's a try and so glad I did. Lee who was my salesperson was amazing. After trying on seven gowns and ready to give up, Lee asked me to give her a chance that she felt she had the perfect gown in mind. Well, that gown is the one that I said "Yes to the Dress". It was something I never would have thought of trying on my our and I am so thrilled that I listened to Lee. I even got my shoes there too. The heels were much higher than I am use to wearing and they were the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn. I not only kept them on all day,but also danced in them. Lee and the whole staff at Harold's are just wonderful people. You can tell that they love what they do and it certainly shows. They are great listener's,made if fun for me and calmed me down when I thought of all the planning that had to be done. Came up with wonderful ideas on how to wear my hair. Lisa and Megan just to name a few are sweethearts. Being an older bride, they made me feel just like any other bride. It's funny how things come to a full circle. I got my first gown there as a flower girl, then my junior and senior prom gowns, and now that "Special Gown my wedding gown". The next time I need formal wear I won't have to go crazy looking for a place to shop I can just go directing to Harold's for a gown/dress, shoes and jewelry. I will always recommend Harold's to everyone.

Love all of you great people at Harold's.
