I went to Jefre Bridal because I found a dress online that I loved, and the store was having a designer trunk sale. I made an appointment and we were able to find the dress. My consultant made me feel very comfortable, since shopping with sample sizes is not easy as a plus size bride. She was able to show me a dress with in a similar cut to show me how the dress may look on me. I ordered the dress the same day, and every appointment after that was easy!


My dress was beautiful on my wedding day! My bustle broke but that was because my dress was so heavy. My dress fit me perfectly, and was so comfortable!

I agree with many of the other reviews about Jefre Bridal - the customer service is sorely lacking, and they often make you feel like they are doing a favor for YOU, instead of acting like you are a valued customer. In particular, I found one consultant - Lois - to be very rude. When I initially came in to try on dresses, she was nice enough, but when I showed her pictures of styles I liked she just said, "We don't have those dresses here, pick something out from the rack to try on." It's very difficult to pick a dress from the rack when they are al squished together in plastic bags, so some guidance would have been very helpful. I ended up choosing a dress from a different bridal salon, and ordering it from Jefre because their prices were much lower than other area salons for the same dresses.

When my bridesmaids were ready to pick out their dresses, I called ahead to make an appointment so that we could come in on a Saturday. The appointment ended up being pointless - when we came in and they realized we were there for bridesmaid dresses and not a bridal gown, they pointed to a dressing room that my girls could use and that was all the help that we got. It was very chaotic, and we had to pull our own dresses, and I had to clip all of the girls into them. I have been in other weddings where we purchased dresses at salons where the consultants are SO helpful, and pull similar styles, show you color swatches, etc. We definitely didn't have that kind of service at Jefre. The girls all ordered their dresses, and luckily the orders were all correct and came in on time.

Amalia handled the alterations for my dress, and she did a very nice job. She is obviously very talented, and the only reason I rated them 2 stars for professionalism. When I came in for my final fitting, everything was done well except my bustle - I felt that it was too low, and my train was still dragging on the ground quite a bit when it was bustled up. Amalia assured me that she would fix it, and that I could pick up the dress in a few days (about a week before my wedding). While I was in the fitting room with Amalia, my sister and mom were waiting for me in the main salon. They were shocked by the service that they saw, and they told me that while they were waiting, a girl was trying on a dress that she liked, but didn't feel comfortable in because it was strapless. She said she wanted to try on a bolero jacket, and Jefre and the consultant told her that she would look horrible. I was shocked too - I could understand trying to show her other options that might look better, but judging her for her choices is just plain rude.

When I came to pick up my dress, Lois was working again. She very rudely asked if I had an appointment, and when I explained that I did and that I was there to pick up my dress, she huffed and said she wasn't sure if she had time to get it for me. I had made my appointment to pick it up with Jefre, so I told her that, and she said "Well fine, I'll go get it." (At this point, there were NO other clients in the salon, so it wasn't like she was busy helping someone else.) I explained to her that I wanted to see the bustle to make sure that it had been moved like I asked, and she said, "I'm sure it has, don't worry about it." At this point, I was getting very upset - my wedding was only a few days away, and I wanted to make sure the dress was perfect before I took it home. I tried to explain it to her, and she led me in the back and pointed to the dress. It had been pressed and was in a bag, which was fine, but I wanted to take the bag off so that I could check the bustle. Lois rudely said, "Well I don't know how to put the bag back on, so you can't see it." I explained to her that I was sure I could figure out how to put the bag back on the dress, and I did it myself. The bustle had been fixed, and I felt better knowing that it was correct. I'm not sure why Lois couldn't have taken a few minutes out of her day to be polite and reassure me about my dress, given that my wedding was so close.

Jefre Bridal has a talented seamstress, and one of the consultants, Pat, seems to be much friendlier and I might have had a different experience had I worked with her. However, given the experience I did have, I would recommend that brides look at other salons in order to have the peace of mind that good customer service will give you.

Amalia and the rest of the Jefre Bridal staff - THANK YOU! I bought an Allure dress at a trunk show at Jefre, and they took it from simply gorgeous to mindblowingly stunning. Amalia, my seamstress, was absolutely amazing - she is a goddess of stitchery. I wore a fairly elaborate gown, and she took it in 2.5 sizes without changing anything about the lines or design of the dress - it looked made for me. She also suggested adding cap sleeves from excess material to match my skirt, and that idea was BRILLIANT. I never would have thought of it, and I've gotten so many compliments! She also took my mom's veil and re-made it for me, matching the dress. It was perfect. I don't think I could have dreamed a better dress than what Amalia helped create. The staff at Jefre was always friendly and encouraging, and their pricing is reasonable. There's the occasional long wait for an appointment once you arrive, but that's the fault of other brides - the staff really do try to keep things moving and on time. Definitely recommend them!

Jefre Bridal did a great job with my bridal gown and bridesmaid dresses. First, the variety and prices of the bridal gowns is terrific for people who are interested in something that is beautiful but don't want to spend a fortune on something simply because of a name. Lois was helpful in helping me select a dress. Amalia did an amazing job with the tailoring, especially the bustle. I received several compliments at the reception about the bustle.
My bridesmaids also purchased Bill Levkoff chiffon dresses there in different styles and Jefre managed to keep straight the orders on 9 different dresses and get them delivered in plenty of time. I also purchased my veil and wedding jewelry there, which complimented the dress perfrectly.

I went to Jefre's today (August 21, 2012- nj green brook store on 22) with my matron of honor, flower girl, and mom and friend. I walked in exactly in time for my appointment. The woman was standing doing nothing and when I walked in she said "oh I really need a cigarette break' and walked out!!!! how classy right? pretty trashy if you ask me. Then she came back smelling like smoke, took phone calls, acted completely inept, and then she yelled across her store (in front of other clients) "How much can you pay?" and told me my price was too low. I walked out with my possy. She was a rude, unprofessional woman. I ended up buying a 1200 dollar casablanca from ANOTHER store which was ABSolUTELY amazing. Glad I didnt give Jefre;s my business. they were awful. Also I have 8 bridesmaids JEFRES...you missed out on business today. Quit being so rude. I would not rcomment this vendor to a friend...and in fact I will do as much as possible to make sure all my bride friends know not to even put it on their list. even if they're designer is there. I can give them a list on at least 5 other stores that carry the same designers and actually have respectable women working there. Maybe not all of jefres workers are as bad as this one...but it was enough to turn me away.

I was originally referred to Jefre's by a very succesfful woman I knew in the bridal industry who has impeccable taste and very high standards for service.
I had a rather short engagement and I was super worried about finding a store that would be able to not only get me my dream dress, but alter it to perfection, but then get it in on time without any problems!
I walked in to my first appointment and within minutes I was introduced to the amazing staff who was not only warm, and sweet, but also extremely professional. They were respectful of what I wanted, not pushy at all, and totally incredible. Within minutes I had come across my dream gown, which the staff promised would not only be ready in more than enough time, but would be altered to perfection! They were right. Everyone at my wedding thought my dress must have been custom made given how perfectly it fit.
They were also able to save the day of last minute and order extra fabric from the company and make me a beautiful piece to wear on my shoulders for the religious ceremony!
Jefre's staff was also wonderful to work with being that they are great about confirming appointments and always make themselves available! They are extremely flexible and accomodating with a bride's hectic schedule, and given that I live both in MIAMI and NEW YORK, this was extremely crucial to me.
I have nothing bad to say about Jefre Bridals. Not only was the staff incredible, but they were a pleasure to work with! They succeeded in making this very picky girl her dream wedding gown, and for that I am eternally grateful!
I would recommend JEFRE BRIDAL to anyone looking for a beautiful gown and impeccable service.

I went to Jefre on the recommendation of a friend...I was in the crunch time and needed to find a dress. Luckily, they had the perfect one! Everyone there was nice, but the strict no picture rule (I live 1,000 miles from home and wanted pics to show my mom!) was kind of annoying. Also, they said the dress would only take a few weeks, but it ended up that I ordered in February and it came in early August...at least it was still 2 weeks before the wedding! Jefre was good, got me my dress, and the alterations ladies were very helpful...not sure I would go back if I had to do it over again.

I purchased my bridal gown and bridesmaid dresses at jefre. Some of my maids were upset bc their dresses were too big. However they ordered it big so that they can make it fit you properly. One of my girls took her dress back to jefre two times before the fit and hem were perfect. However she did not have amalia do her work.

Now, my dress :) I only went to one store and that was jefre. My dress was the last one I tried on and I knew it was the one. I only started there bc they said if i did purchase my dress there my bmaids would get a discount off their dresses. I didnt think i would have found my dress there but im glad i made appt!! If I would have continued my shopping experience at Kleinfelds, a similar dress would have cost three times what I paid for at jefre. Amalia is AMAZING. She works hard and is great at her job. Many people have reviewed her as unprofessional and unfriendly, but she is wonderful!! . I cried when I picked up my gown and thanked her for the perfect way she altered the bottom of my dress and added more lace appliqués to hide the seam of the dropped waist. I love you amalia!!! I also purchased my headpiece and veil from Jefre as well. Both of which I loved and received many compliments on :)
