We visited Isabelle's to find a dress for my future sister-in-law this past weekend and Karen was incredible! We fell in love with her right away. Her shop is SO different than you run of the mill bridal store...she makes you feel so at ease and does not add to the already high pressure that comes along with selecting a bridal gown. Her enthusiasm and genuine desire to make the bride feel as beautiful and special as possible on her big day were amazing, and it was more than you could ask for as a customer. Working with her melted away any existing stress or tension. She has someone who specially makes sashes, belts etc at incredibly reasonable prices, and she went over tons of little details she will be adding to the gown to make everything extra special. Pricing is EXTREMELY reasonable and you won't pay outrageous ticket prices for dresses or accessories like you would elsewhere. She hand selects her gowns, and she also receives a lot of discontinued designs (all of which were gorgeous) that are heavily discounted. My sister-in-law found THE dress and it was a fabulous experience! We will be back soon to find a mother-of-the-groom gown for my mom.

I had the most perfect wedding dress experience here with my big, loud, loving family and the owner of the salon, Karen. Karen was the sweetest, and she was ever patient with me and my crowd! To top it off she came in on her day off and gave us a great deal. The dresses were beautifully selected couture designer gowns and she had a perfect variety of discontinued samples and current styles made to order. I lucked out because every dress I liked was about 50% off retail and well under my budget of $1000. I ended up with a haute couture Maggie Sottero dress for $825. My mom found her dress too, and she gave her an even better deal for buying both! I also got my veil heavily discounted in the deal too.

While we were trying on their new, highly talented seamstress walked in with 7 years experience at RK Bridal in NYC and fitted me right there. My alterations included hem, bustle, and spaghetti straps for $250. My mom's were only $75.

Bottom line, go everywhere else first if you want to feel like you looked a lot before you find the one here. Or cut out the expensive, snooty shops and come here first and last, leave with a smile and money to spare!

The shop is very quiet and lovely place. Karen (the owner) was there to assist me with whatever I needed. She made me feel like the most important bride in the world. I had visited other bridal stores, but the dresses they had were dresses I've seen everywhere. I wanted a gown that would be all mine. She knew what I wanted just by a description and what I thought I wouldn't like from what she pulled for me, I loved and it became my wedding dress. She has a gift for find THAT PERFECT DRESS. She made my dress experience so amazing.
My gown was a designer that is only available in three locations locally…which worked perfectly. I was able to accessorize the dress with a super awesome sash made by Kristina from Plumes in Bloom. Kristina is an amazing and gifted designer and a good friend from high school. It was a privilege to wear the gorgeous sash.

I looked at reviews before heading over to Isabelle's, and noticed all of Karen's great reviews, so I had to go. Before visiting, I went to numerous dress shops that were just looking for a sale on an expensive dress that was not a "WOW". When I first went into Isabelle's, I noticed she did not have as many dresses as the other shops and thought it was going to be a fast appointment. After trying on a few dresses that I've never seen before at other stores, I realized that she had impeccable taste and style. They were all amazing dresses, high quality materials and had that"WOW" factor. She has a lot of accessories and veils to go with the dresses and they are absolutely beautiful and breathtaking! I fell in love with one dress, then visited her shop a second time to show my aunt, and then thought I would purchase it the third time. At that visit, she had new arrivals from bridal market in NYC, and I tried on a dress she just got in, I had the "moment" where I knew it was my dress. I also said yes to the veil and a beautiful headband too. Karen made me feel special every time I went in, and she is such a sweetheart. It is a very different and better experience than any other dress shop that I visited. I can't wait until my dress comes in!

Karen at Isabelle's is simply wonderful. She was professional and absolutely made my dress search a joyous experience. I went from not enjoying wedding dresses to loving it because of Karen at Isabelle's. Not only was she helpful, she listened to me and she worked with me to find my dream dress! If anyone is looking for a wedding dress I always will from now on recommend Isabelle's because of the high quality, beautiful dresses and the customer care. I went into the store as a stranger left feeling like a friend and a BRIDE! I couldn't be more happy with my dress it's stunning and such immaculate beading work. Karen has the perfect dress selections, you won't be disappointed. I cannot wait to wear my dress on my wedding day. I never want to take it off! I couldn't be happier, thank you Isabelle's for helping me!

When it comes to finding the perfect wedding dress--Karen, of Isabelle's Bridal & Eveningwear, is like a magical fairy godmother.
I was very nervous about the process of wedding dress shopping--How long will it take to find something I like? What type I dress do I want? What will even look good one me?? Am I going to need to spend an enormous sum of money to find a dress I love???
I walked into Isabelle's on a Saturday afternoon, I tried on 5 gorgeous, unique and affordable dresses and I found the gown of my dreams--in one day of shopping! It was my first time trying on dresses!
I would recommend going with Isabelle's for a number of reasons.
1. Karen (like I said before) is like the fairy godmother you always wish you had. She is a truly wonderful soul! We loved spending time with her while trying on gowns. She made me feel special and helped me and my family create a great memory!
2. Karen is a complete professional. She knows everything there is to know about the bridal gown industry and answered every single question I had about buying a wedding gown. Because she has so many years of experience, Karen can intuitively pick out dresses that fit your body type and personality perfectly. I felt like I loved a lot of the dresses I tried on.
3. Karen stocks an amazing array of unique gowns, veils and bridal jewelry. They are all of excellent quality and are extremely affordable compared to most other boutiques.
Would highly recommend to anyone!!

Karen went above and beyond to help Mandy find the perfect dress. Karen knows her dresses and not only had a gorgeous gown that fit Mandy perfectly, but it was within the budget and she had an adorable jacket to match! Thank you again Karen for your help and for having the perfect dress for Mandy. No worries if you have a time crunch - Karen will find you exactly what you need in time for your event!

I stopped at Isabelle's by chance, and after my experience there, I am so glad I did! Karen at Isabelle's is absolutely AMAZING. She is a sweet, caring shop owner who made me feel like family the minute I walked in the door. I was shopping for a dress for my 2nd wedding; something simple but special. After trying on several dresses and getting an idea about me and what I was looking for, she found me the PERFECT dress!

She was also wonderful with my daughter. I purchased a dress for her the same day as mine, and when we came back in for the fitting, it no longer fit her. Karen felt so badly that the dress didn't work, that she went out of her way to find a new dress for my daughter. The dress turned out to match mine, which made my daughter so excited.

My experience with Karen and Isabelle's couldn't have been more positive. Caring service, beautiful gowns and wonderful prices. Karen is simply the best, and I would recommend anyone looking for a wedding, 1st communion, bridesmaid, flower girl or special occasion dress to visit Isabelle's.

I can't recommend Isabelle's enough!! Not only is Karen Frost the kindest, sweetest and most generous, genuine person, but she also has fantastic taste. Her shop is filled with the most unique, vintage-y, beautiful wedding dresses and she really knows how to pick something that will look perfect on you. I thought I knew what I wanted and Karen entertained me...letting me try on a ridiculous number of dresses and while all were beautiful, none of them did anything for me. I'm so glad I put myself in her hands. I asked her to pick something that she thought I'd look good in and found "the one" in no time. The dresses I picked out cost significantly more than the one she picked for me. She truly wanted to make me happy and it wasn't about how much money she was making. She was even so generous as to offer to lend me her necklace (that wasn't for sale) and shoes for my big day.

I ended up buying my bridesmaid dresses from Karen (which were also unique and I got SO many compliments on them) and my mom bought her mother-of-the-bride dress from her as well, which was just gorgeous. She made my mom, sister and I feel so special and beautiful and we enjoyed every moment spent with her. I'm sure I was a total pain to deal with but she never made me feel that way. I kept second-guessing my decision and stressing over everything. Karen would call and check in on me to see how I was doing and she even came to the seamstress with us because we wanted her opinion.

I can't thank you enough, Karen. I wish I could get married all over again so I could enjoy the wonderful experience of trying on dresses at your shop. Thank you for making me feel on top of the world and for the most beautiful, unique wedding dress a girl could ask for xoxo

I cannot rave enough about Karen and her boutique. Karen is an amazing person and a delight to be around. She made me and my bridesmaids feel so comfortable and we had so much fun with her. I bought my wedding dress and bridesmaid dresses from Karen and will be going back for Maid of Honor and the Mother of the Bride dress. Karen has excellent ideas and opinions that really helped me when deciding on colors of the bridesmaid dresses. As if all of this isn't enough of a reason to go Isabelle's Bridal, the prices are unbeatable. For the quality and beauty of her gowns I thought it would be a lot more expensive. Isabelle's Bridal should be first on your list. Karen thank you so much for making my day wonderful.
