Helene's was recommended to me by a friend. They were great! Had me try on different styles to make sure I knew exactly what I wanted. Let me stay in the dress for a bit and try sitting, I even danced in it. Great quality and pricing. Couldn't be happier with my dress and where I got it from!

After shopping at 7 other bridal stores, I found Helene's to be the best all around. The service from Ana was excellent, the dress was just what I was looking for and price was more reasonable than other places. The recommended seamstress did a nice job and was priced fairly. An all around positive experience! Highly recommend Helene's!

Due to our quick time line, the very first thing I had to do was order bridesmaid dresses. I bought my bridal gown later at home, but Helene's Bridal Shop was the perfect place to dress my bridesmaids. I let my girls choose different styles in the same color and fabric from Alfred Sung. Helene's let all five of us come in at once and try them all on. I am so grateful that they had so many of the styles available, not just a few. They were great with the ordering and billing and Anna even helped me pick out the final dress color in a last minute panic! The dresses were delivered right on time. I had an excellent experience with Helene's and they were friendly and pleasant to work with.

My mom recently purchased her mother of the bride dress here for my wedding coming up in September. She went in alone the first time and was very indecisive (as she usually is). She said the women there were very good at giving her opinions. I then went back with her to see her in the top two contenders. I swear we were there for an hour and a half- trying this one on, then that one, then back to the first one, and over, and over... Both women were extremely helpful in giving their honest opinions on which dress they liked better, which was more flattering, which was more elegant... My mom finally decided on one and they were so helpful in showing her what pleated cap sleeves would look like if they were added since she was considering that. They were also extremely helpful when picking the color. They even went upstairs to try and find other dresses from the same designer in the colors she was considering! When she picked up her dress, she tried on some jewelry we had purchased elsewhere that we weren't sure we loved. They found us the perfect necklace and earrings that matched the bracelet we had already purchased to totally complete my mom's look. On my way out, I saw a hairpiece that basically fit all my criteria- something I had searched high and low to find. They looked at pictures of my hair trial (15 minutes after they had already "closed") to give me their honest opinions. I ended up getting it! These women are just so incredibly thoughtful, kind, accommodating, honest, friendly, patient, all the things you look for at a bridal shoppe. They even asked me to come back and show them pictures of wedding day, even though I hadn't purchased my gown there! (I just hadn't gotten that far on my gown finding journey before I found THE dress. I totally would've purchased from them!) Bottom line, they are amazing people who really love what they do and make your experience great. I would recommend them to anyone!

I always knew I'd be getting my dress at Helene's, as my sister purchased her gown there 7 years ago. Everyone there is more than amazing, especially Ana and Ashlee. My first appointment was so amazing. I tried on 9 dresses and found my dream dress that first day! The level of service they give you is beyond exceptional. They are always so flexible, and even let me come back one day just to try on the dress again! I ended up purchasing my veil, earring and hairpiece with them, too.

We also went with Helene's for my bridesmaids. Two of them were planning on having a baby and we weren't sure what would happen around the time of our wedding for them. Ana was so great when measuring them and helped them pick the correct size. We found the perfect dress that looked gorgeous on 6 girls with 6 different body types! My mother also purchased her gown there, too!

If you're also looking for great tuxes for the groom and men, definitely consider Anthony's House of Formals associated with Helene's. They even have 2 locations for us Rhode Islanders who don't want to go on 195 ;-)

Helene's no longer has an in house seamstress but they do recommend a few. Definitely go with Eugenia! I thought my dress was already gorgeous but she is so meticulous and has an eye for things I never would have ever noticed. She even gave me quite the shape in my mermaid gown!

They had a great selection and Anna made me feel like she really valued my time. I didn't feel rushed as I did at some other places and she was willing to show me as many dresses as I wanted to see until I found the one that was my dress.

I found and purchased my dream dress in two hours! I worked with Ana; she was sweet, sincere, and competent. I walked into Helene's with a picture of one dress, but Ana made sure I tried on several dresses along with that one so I could have a feel for different styles. She never coaxed me or told me only what I wanted to hear; instead, she acted as a guide. She was never pushy and had exceptional taste and input. In the end, I purchased a different dress than the one from my picture; it was perfect! Ana made sure all details were accounted for, and my dress came in when she said it would. When I met with Ana, again, she was still that wonderful, sweet woman. I cannot be more thankful to her and the staff. They guided me towards a wonderful seamstress (see review for Sewing Creations by Rose), and we rented tuxes downstairs at Anthony's House of Formals (see review). Again, thank you to everyone at Helene's and Anthony's!
