I shopped at a few bridal shops and this was the only one that had a wide selection of dresses that were my style to try on. Irma was very helpful in finding me a dress that fit what I was looking for. The staff is very friendly. The only issue was there was some confusion and lack of communication when it came to having my fittings and picking up my dress. They deal with the dress process everyday and I think they assumed that I knew how the fitting process worked as well. Crisis was averted, but communication beforehand would have helped.

Irma's has a great selection. If you are looking for a very UNIQUE wedding dress and not a boring, blah dress, go here first! Yes it is walk in Mon-Sat so if you are looking for someone to drop what they are doing to attend to your every need, this is not the place for you. BUT they do accept appointments on Sundays so if you need to feel like a DIVA, schedule it on a Sunday.

I fell in love with a Mori Lee dress I saw online and no other store in the area had the sample except for Irma's. I met Irma and she is the sweetest lady. She orders all of the dresses for her shop and was also a wedding dress designer. All of the staff in the store are extremely helpful in finding what you need.

Some bad marks:
*It's true, they do not use computers but they never lost any of my paperwork and had no problems finding my orders.
*They have next to NO selection in flower girl dresses, so be prepared to go
somewhere else. I did get my flower girls dress there but their selection is not for everyone.
*Alteration/cleaning prices seem to be made up. Be prepared for a ballpark, "I just thought of this number in my head" estimate and no itemized list showing what is getting done to your dress before your big day. They fit you and pretty much scribble a number down on a pad and ask you to pay in full, in cash at your first fitting.

None of my moms or bridesmaids got a dress there, but the selection was great and the prices were reasonable. Once again, make Irma's your first stop. It's totally worth it.

I can't say enough about Irma's! I've been there twice trying on bridal gowns. Whitney even remembered me from a previous visit and remembered the dresses that I tried on. She was very warm and made my experience incredibly enjoyable. Irma was there while I was trying on dresses and offered her kind words on the dresses that I was trying on. I almost said yes to my dress there, but I just need to try it on with my mom. I would without a doubt buy my dress from Irma.

I can not recommend Irma's enough. Everyone in the shop is lovely and so attentive. I tried another shop in the area and I did not feel welcome or valued the way I did at Irma's. Admittedly, they need to computerize their systems and be a bit less stringent on the types of payment accepted, but the service and selection outweigh the inconvenience of the cash only policy.

Irma and her staff were attentive, very helpful and very accommodating. Her seamstress was very nice and helpful. They didn't have my gown in stock (actually I called several bridal shops and no one had it ) But Irma called and ordered my gown and when it came in...it fit perfectly!! Thank you so much Irma for my Maggie Sottero Gown!!!! Milana and I were made for each other!!

Overall, this was a great bridal boutique, especially with the options and prices. I wanted a Maggie Sottero, and Irma's had by far the best prices. They do not take appointments, so it can be a hit or miss with how busy they are. I am a teacher and off during the summers, so I went during a weekday in July and the store was slow and the staff took their time. When I picked up the gown during a Saturday, it was a little hectic. If you have time to go during a weekday, I highly suggest you do.

Irma did a fabulous job on my dress! She also ordered all my bridesmaid dresses. Everything went very smoothly and they were super helpful! This is a VERY popular bridal shop and it's usually busy, I suggest making an appointment or going during a slow time! They just recently expanded their shop to double it's original size! They have tons to choose from and my experience was wonderful and I would absolutely go back again! My sister (my maid of honor) lost a lot of weight between the time she ordered her dress and the wedding and they literally cut the dress in half and it looked like it came right from the factory! I was so impressed! Also their seamstress is WONDERFUL! She might seem slightly expensive but worth EVERY PENNY! They really make you feel like you're at home and the staff learns your name and remembers you next time you come in! It's a great experience and they did a stand up job! Thank you Irma and Staff!!!

Unfortunately, I had to buy my bridesmaid dress from Irma's because the bride wanted one specific designer and Irma's carried it. I was disgusted from the start. The condition of the store was atrocious! Dresses stuffed to the gills and the personnel did not help us find what we were looking for (I finally found the correct section and began pulling dresses myself). They were horribly tangled with one another! We all chose our dresses and proceeded to the front to pay. The employee measured us in the front of the store by the registers!!! Then of course told us to order 2 sizes bigger than our normal street size. I objected and said I wanted to be re-measured by Irma herself. Well... the dressing rooms were full so I had to change in the bathroom! Then... Irma pulls me into a dressing room that was ALREADY occupied without asking the poor girl inside! (who by-the-way was not dressed and had to cover herself by clutching a bustier to her bare chest). Long story short- I ended up ordering the dress 2 sizes bigger because of the designer's size chart. I'm already gearing up for a fight for when it comes in. Alterations start at $55 regardless of what you have done (I will definitely not use them for that!) Books and binders were strewn about behind the register- the whole salon was gross and did not have enough seating for a 4-person bridal party- Thank god the bride already bought her dress from somewhere else. I don't even want to go back to pick it up!

Ladies, Beware!!! Irma's bridal was quite possibly the worst experience I have ever had in dealing with a shop or a vendor! I took my entire female bridal party to her shop to select and order gowns. My wedding is on March 7, 2009 and the day that we went to the shop, already knowing what gowns we were ordering, was August 23, 2008. The staff was incredibly rude and kept trying to force everyone in the bridal party to order gowns in sizes that were 4 to 6 sizes larger then what they just tried on and fit into. Irma walked past me in the wedding gown I chose and said that it fit perfect and looked like it was made for me and would require nothing but a bustle, but when it came time to order my gown she recommended that I order 4 sizes bigger! After insulting 3 of my bridesmaids by telling them that they were too large for the sizes they requested, we left the shop but I was so clouded by my desire for the perfect looking gowns that I couldn't think straight, when I should have just walked out and never gone back. Irma called me 3 hours later to say that one of the girls had a plus size gown so she should have paid $13 more on her deposit. I told her that she was given $1600.00 in deposits which was more then half of what was required and that she was not to charge any additional funds to the credit card. I was appalled that she would call looking for more money. Around Thanksgiving, Irma called me to ask me if I wanted a corset back or a zip up back and I was horrified. I asked her why she was just now ordering my gown and she claimed that she ordered it a long time ago but that the manufacturer wanted to know because they were probably getting ready to make it. In December, the gowns for the mother's arrived. Still no word on the bridesmaids gowns or mine. The shop closed down for the holidays from December 20th to January 5th. It had now been 19 weeks since we ordered the gowns. When I called on January 5th to ask where the gowns were, they said they should be in within the next two weeks. I called again and this time they said the third week of January and that mine was supposed to be in at the end of January. On January 20th I called to ask where the bridesmaids gowns were and they never returned my call. On Monday, I drove to the shop to demand to know where the gowns were. After 30 minutes of standing around, Irma came out and said that the factory closed down that day, and that there would be no bridesmaids gowns! I couldn't believe that it was happening and wanted to know why these gowns that were on order for 22 weeks were not already delivered. A factory that closed that day shouldn't have had anything to do with gowns that were on order for over 5 months! I raced to David's Bridal to desperately search for replacement gowns and when I returned to Irma's bridal that Friday to pick up the money for the girls gowns, and to find out where my gown was, they informed me that my gown had arrived on Tuesday but they must have forgot to call because they were VERY busy. I would avoid Irma's at all costs! In this economy, you can not afford to take a chance on a shop that holds your money and doesn't place orders until it is too late.

+. I did not find the dress shopping experience fun at all. I did not grow up with a vision of the dress. I would have much rather shopped for jeans and shoes (at least I knew what I liked). Even though the models and other girls at the shops looked so beautiful in their dresses, I felt like they were so heavy, big and they made me feel like I was a mummer. Also, I was disappointed that 80% of the dresses were strapless which is unflattering to my back fat. And most of those dresses were empire waist (which is bad for short torsos). Of all the places that we went, I felt that Irmas staff was most patient and caring. I knew that I liked the Maggies and they had a huge selection. Just from looking at my frame, they suggested dresses that I would have never taken off the hanger. She was also the first person who suggested the off the shoulder straps to camouflage the area that I was self conscious about. When I picked up the dress before the wedding, I felt like I was saying good-bye to old friends.

Alterations: They did an amazing job. I lost 30 pounds before the wedding and of course after I ordered my dress, so they had to take in my dress quite a bit. I was concerned the dress would lose its appeal, but it was perfect! Bridal Gown: If you are unsure what style will look best on you, just talk to Irma. She has a degree in fashion and she took one look at me and said Ill be right back, I have the perfect dress for you and she was right. Fit me perfectly and that was it! Bridesmaids' Dresses: They tend to be slow, so make an appointment. If you can, make the first appointment time they have available so you arent waiting. Thats the only thing I hated about Irmas. They are great otherwise.

I had looked at several different bridal shops and was lost on my way to another when I pulled into a parking lot to fix my GPS and happened to see Irma's Bridal right in front of me. I tried on several dresses that were beautiful but not quite what I was looking for. I described my perfect dress to the saleslady and within minutes, she brought out a dress that was almost exactly what I had described. I really wanted to add a belt and once I was given one to tie around my waist everyone, including my 3 year old nephew, knew that was my gown! The price was very reasonable, which made me very happy. Irma was wonderful and so helpful. She always made me feel welcome in her shop. Angie, the seamstress, did an impeccable job with my alterations and adding the belt to my dress. It was such a beautiful way to have a dress that was truly mine. Overall, Irma's was a fantastic find!

I am having my bridesmaids get their dresses from here. It seems like Irma's provides the best value in this area. My mom also got her dress from here. I love the fact that you don't have to make an appointment for bridesmaid dress fittings!! We love Irma as well!! The only thing is, sometimes there is a long wait and the sales associates can get a little frazzled and cause some confusion/anxiety amongst the women shopping. I have been helped by Lori most of the time and I LOVE HER!!! Unfortunately, today we were helped by Cindy, and I did not find her to be nearly as helpful or as nice as Lori. Had I encountered Cindy in the beginning of my bridesmaid dress journey, I am not sure if we would've stayed with Irma's.
