My bridesmaids ordered their dresses through Irma's Bridals. Irma's is great for value and selection -- we found affordable but well-made dresses that flattered four very different body types. I'm docking stars for professionalism and responsiveness because, like another reviewer, I found the consultants to be friendly but rather scatterbrained. They did have trouble remembering who I was, and how/where to find my order in their invoice binder.

One consultant told me the dresses would arrive in 2 months, but after 2+ months passed with no word from the store, I called them to find that the dresses weren't supposed to arrive for another 2 months. Fair enough, but I definitely lost a bit of confidence.

And finally, one of my bridesmaids feels pretty strongly that she was misled by one consultant about the silhouette of the dress she ordered, which resulted in her spending a lot of money on outside alterations to turn an A-line skirt into a pencil skirt -- the way the consultant suggested it would look. Everything turned out fine in the end, but again, it left my maid with a bad taste in her mouth, so to speak.

The bottom line: I would recommend Irma's for their selection and their competitive prices. It seems like a lot of previous reviewers had much, much better luck ordering just one garment, like a bridal gown. But for a bigger order like bridesmaid gowns, I'd go elsewhere.

My wedding gown, bridesmaid gowns and my mom’s dress was purchased from Irma’s for my wedding last December. The selection they offer is fantastic and I also thought that their dress prices were reasonable as well. On my first trip there I found my gown and after seeing a bridesmaid dress elsewhere, I found that they carried that line as well. My dress and my mom’s dress came in without any problems. The bridesmaid dresses had a few issues though. Apparently the color combination I had visualized and communicated to Irma’s staff (each time I came in and had one of 6 bridesmaids fitted) were not how the order was shipped. There was some confusion between how the vendor does the color combinations when given multiple colors. They came in completely the opposite of what I wanted-instead of a black dress with colored trim, it was a bright colored dress with black trim. Irma did not hesitate to offer solutions to the problem-at her cost. In the end, she had her seamstress make the adjustments and they all turned out beautifully, even better than I originally pictured them!!! Also, one of my bridesmaids became pregnant and Irma worked with us to get enough extra fabric and her dress looked just as good as the others. Irma was so kind and helpful throughout the whole process, and on the big day we all looked fantastic in our dresses.

I bought my wedding gown here and got all of my bridesmaids gowns here, as well as the alterations for my wedding gown.

First, I'll start with my initial dress-shopping experience, which was done during the week in the early afternoon. I told my saleswoman, Kathy, that I loved Maggie Sottero gowns and she walked away to choose me some gowns based on what I said I loved. While she collected gowns for me, Irma walked up to me, greeted me warmly, looked me up and down once and told me she knew the perfect gown for me, Maggie Sottero's Sabelle gown! I am a skeptic so I didn't believe her, but tried on the gown anyway. lol It was an amazing gown and hugged me in all the right places!! I felt like it was "the one" but did not want to make a hasty decision so I tried on a few more; however, none compared to the one Irma chose for me. I bought the Sabelle gown that day!

Because my experience was amazing with my gown, I decided to get my bridesmaids gowns from there too. I loved iridescent taffeta, but since my bridesmaids were all curvy women with different shapes, Kathy suggested chiffon dresses, which I didn't really care for, but she gave me a few designers to look at and told me to browse and find some that I loved. It didn't take me long to find the perfect dresses and in an amazing deep-red Tiffany chiffon! Those gowns were style #L3012 from Belsoie by Jasmine and I immediately knew that I loved them for my gorgeous bridesmaids!!!

My dresses came in quickly and all of them were correct. I had no issues at all, thankfully!

I must comment on the quality of my alterations and the woman who did them- Angela. Angela was the sweetest woman ever and was so gracious and patient! I loved her immediately and her talent was awesome. For brides with big busts and small waists (like me), you can trust that Angela will make your dress perfect and make sure that your "girls" are in your dress properly and that your dress looks immaculately sewn! I can't say enough good things about my experience with Angela!

One thing I must recommend to brides choosing Irma's Bridal as a vendor- stay away on Saturdays unless you have absolutely no other choice!!!!! It is a madhouse in there and quality of service drops all the way down to one star, unfortunately. I went on one Saturday and will never do so again! lol

Overall, I had a great experience here and I recommend that brides shop when Irma is present so she can do her magic and pick out a dress or dresses that will make you feel like the most beautiful woman in the world!!

I worked with Irma herself to select the perfect dress for my wedding day - she was outstanding - always available and patient. She allowed me to try on as many dresses as I wanted and did not pressure me to purchase right away but allowed me to do so in my own time. She has years and years of fashion and design experience and was extremely helpful in modifying the dress I selected so that I could have a one of a kind gown for my wedding day. My alterations were done there by Angela who was spectacular, too. Would definitely recommend!!

I was a little skeptical shopping at Irma's because I didn't have any personal recommendations of friends that had ever shopped there-- but I am SO GLAD I worked with them to select my wedding dress and my mom's MoB dress! Irma is so friendly, funny, and warm that you feel so welcome-- even on a crazy evening or Saturday during prom season! The seamstress that did my alterations did a flawless job, and my dress looked amazing on my wedding day. I selected a veil only 3-4 weeks before my wedding (not enough time to order the jeweled headpiece that went with it), so Irma ordered a new veil for me and sold me her sample headpiece so that I could have the perfect accessory to match my gown. Thank you to Irma, Ginny and the seamstress (I can't remember her name!) who hugged me when I left with my gown! You made me feel truly beautiful!

I bought a dress and bolero from Irma's and I would say I was basically happy with the service. On the plus side, I came in maybe 3 or 4 times to try on very specific dresses (I needed sleeve/arm coverage for a very religious wedding), and the women at the store always accomodated me and let me try on dresses quite a few times. However, when I was at the store, I was sometimes left to fend for myself a bit in terms of having to wait awhile in between the dresses I was trying on. I also didn't get the best service in terms of being notified when my dress came in, but when it did arrive, it was perfect and exactly what I wanted with the custom changes and everything. Price was also very reasonable and there really wasn't too much mark up. I would probably recommend Irma's just because they really seem to be pretty reasonable with price and they provide relatively decent service.

Irmas was a great place to shop. I found my perfect dress there and at a great price. i didnt like the seamstress they had and my veil took forever to come in. But I planned for it so it was not a problem for me. I think no matter where you go something may happen or it may not so I would go with your gut!

I found a Maggie dress online and called every store in the area to find somewhere that had it in stock- Irma's was the only one so that's where we went. The first time we went, I had an appointment and Irma saw us right away. I put on the dress, loved it, and there wasn't much else. She was very nice and helpful. However, when she asked if I would be getting the alterations done there (which I wasn't planning on), she got a little bit pushy telling me that it was complicated and they were the only ones who could do it correctly. Oh well. She told me the dress would be in 6 months and that they would call me when it was in.

After 6 months had passed, I called to see if the dress had come in. Irma said she would check and call me back. I waited a week and she didn't, and I had to call again. Again, she said she would check and call me back. She did that time, and said the dress had come in and was waiting in their store. Well, thanks for letting me know! She told us we didn't need an appointment to pick it up (since I wasn't having alterations done there), but it was pretty crowded and we had to wait a while, so I think it would definitely have helped.

All in all, Irma was sweet, friendly, and knows her stuff, but communication was a bit lacking.

Irma's has a great selection of wedding dress. Service is great only if you have Irma to help you. The other women aren't as friendly and nice. The prices is reasonable but the alterations are pricey. It gets busy there and there's not enough help so that's the 3 stars for responsiveness and flexibility. I would recommend this place but as I stated before stick with using Irma. She's the owner and tends to be much more friendlier than the other workers there.

My initial experience at Irma's was wonderful. I found the perfect dress and the service was incredible. My mom also found her dress there as well. We were happy until we called to find out when the dress was coming in only to find out that the dress was not going to be available until the week of the wedding. Irma forced us to call her the following Monday so Irma would remember to call the dress company to have it shipped early. We were forced to pay for the dress order to be rushed despite buying the dress over five months in advanced. When the dress came, I was getting fitted with a fixed rate and my dress turned out beautiful, but I was sold an undergarment for an extra $75, however, the dress did not fit with the undergarment on. Irma refused our return (that never left the store) because despite her receipt in the book, we did not have the pink slip.

My mom's experience was even worse. Her dress arrived on time. She was fitted and at the first fitting, discovered that the dress was fit too short. Irma tried to say the dress fit, despite the obvious. Finally, she agreed to give my mom the sample dress, but still required full price for the dress and fitting. The second dress was then fit too long and my mom couldn't walk in the dress properly.

In the end, we both looked beautiful, but it was not worth the headache and constant worry that our dresses wouldn't be ready for the day of the wedding. Keep all receipts if you decide to go there and be sure to get EVERYTHING in writing with a contract or else you will regret the day you walked into the store.

I didn't entirely dislike my experience at Irma's Bridal but I wasn't exactly thrilled. In the beginning of my search, Irma was very attentive and took time picking out beatiful dresses for me. I chose my dress here because the salon was clean and I felt like I was getting the right service unlike some of the dingy local salons. Unfortunately, at my first fitting, they completely ignored me for another bride getting a fitting. I waited an hour an a half to get my dress on- it was almost 9pm. By that time, I was cranky and miserable and they rushed through my appointment. I went home and cried. By my second fitting, they were more attentive. It was hit or miss whether or not they gave me the time of day. They don't negotiate dress prices either, like some of the other salons. I was thrilled with my dress, just not thrilled with the service.

Irma is wonderful! She is doing exactly what she should be doing for a living and it shows. I felt like I was in such capable hands working with her. I really wish she could be cloned - the wait can sometimes be a while. But if you are looking for the best quality for your money and a great selection of beautiful gowns, Irma's is definitely the way to go.

I had a great overall experience with Irma's Bridal. During my initial visit, I got individualized attention, they had a good selection of dresses, they provided a bustier to wear under the gowns I was trying on, and they were able to pin the samples tightly enough where they closely simulated my size. Their prices are significantly lower than other area stores. I actually first tried on my gown at Jay West, but Irma's list price was $350 less. I ordered my gown 7 months before the wedding and it was delivered in 2 months. The alterations/fitting was the most inconvenient aspect. The tailor is not there on the weekends, and is only available on certain weekdays. I live and work in Center City Philadelphia and it wasn't exactly convenient to take off work to do my fittings...but then again, when has wedding planning ever been convenient?! haha The store can get really hectic and I often saw women who showed up for fittings to find that their appointment had never been written down in the store's appointment book (but from what I can tell, the store was always able to squeeze them in), and I often had to wait awhile at the counter to pay a balance, make my next fitting appointment, etc. The staff are all very pleasant but seem a little scatterbrained...I would be there for my fittings and even though I had clearly been there before, spent time with the staff, and had my name written in the appointment book, they would come up to the counter at the end and say..."so what is your name again?" It didn't really bother me that much but that definitely loses them points in the professionalism category. But overall, I was thrilled with the cost of the dress and I had them do custom alterations which turned out beautifully. My advice is to make an appointment, and before you go, look through lots of pictures and identify specific styles (designer AND style #) you are interested in trying. From there, they will suggest additional styles. Don't bring more than 1 or 2 people with you because although the store is big, it can get crowded. And finally, patience is key! Regardless of where you go to look for your dress, you are going to have to wait for one reason or another. Irma's is definitely worth the wait!

I live and work in Center City Philadelphia and it wasn't exactly convenient to take off work to do my fittings...but then again, when has wedding planning ever been convenient?! haha The store can get really hectic and I often saw women who showed up for fittings to find that their appointment had never been written down in the store's appointment book (but from what I can tell, the store was always able to squeeze them in), and I often had to wait awhile at the counter to pay a balance, make my next fitting appointment, etc. The staff are all very pleasant but seem a little scatterbrained...I would be there for my fittings and even though I had clearly been there before, spent time with the staff, and had my name written in the appointment book, they would come up to the counter at the end and say..."so what is your name again?" It didn't really bother me that much but that definitely loses them points in the professionalism category. But overall, I was thrilled with the cost of the dress and I had them do custom alterations which turned out beautifully. My advice is to make an appointment, and before you go, look through lots of pictures and identify specific styles (designer AND style #) you are interested in trying. From there, they will suggest additional styles. Don't bring more than 1 or 2 people with you because although the store is big, it can get crowded. And finally, patience is key! Regardless of where you go to look for your dress, you are going to have to wait for one reason or another. Irma's is definitely worth the wait! Read less
