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!

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.

My perfect dress was at Jefre's! I went first thing in the morning and had a wonderful experience with a saleswoman, Pat. She found my dress and helped me through the alteration process. The seamstress is absolutely amazing!

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 :)

Jefre's was quite the fortunate experience for me, given how much I was dreading the dress process. They opened the store during usually closed hours and I had the entire place for myself - though the sizes to try on are limited, they have a wonderful selection. Amalia is the BEST alterations woman I have ever met, to the extent that she selected a dress for me to try on (which I did not think I'd like) and ended up being the one!

They know what compliments your body and are very encouraging during the entire process. Even my bridesmaids had a great experience - including one who needed such last minute work that it was during the rehearsal. Only thing that surprised me was the cost of my gown's alterations; the girls' however were free.

Jefre had a beautiful selection of dresses within a reasonable price range. My consultant was very helpful with picking out dresses for me. I showed her a few pictures, and she pulled one that was very similar to one I fell in love with at another store (too expensive). It was a gorgeous Allure private collection dress, within my price range, and I knew that had to be the one. She wasn’t pushy at all and really wanted to help me find something I loved. I liked that the alterations for the bust, waist and hips were included in the services, but I was disappointed with the hem and bustle, which I had to pay for. I was concerned that the hem was still a bit long but the seamstress insisted that no one would be stepping on me. Within two minutes of walking around the cocktail hour, I was getting stepped on repeatedly, and mainly by the groom! I knew I’d be dancing a lot and after two songs, the bustle broke and my dress was all over the floor. Good thing the venue attendant knew how to pin it back up, but I spent the rest of the night holding the bottom of the dress up. I was too happy to really care but disappointed that I paid all that money to not have the seamstress listen to me. Go for their great selection, but be vocal about your alterations.

Terrible service! I went to Jefre Bridals with my mother and aunt to shop for a wedding gown. The consultant I had that day was very nice, and when I found a Maggie Sottero gown that I loved, she told me there would be no problem at all making it work within my (very reasonable) budget. I told her that I wanted my father to see it before purchasing, and she made a note of the style number in their records. A week later, I returned with my mother, father, and brother. After trying on the gown and deciding to purchase it, an employee began writing up my contract with a price several hundred dollars higher than the consultant had given me. When I pointed it out to the employee, the owner came over and told me that the consultant had not made any note of the price I mentioned and implied that I was making it up (fortunately, my mother, who had been there for my first appointment, was present to confirm the price I'd been given). He told us that it was absolutely impossible for him to lower the price any lower than it was, lest he lose money on the transaction. I told him that the gown was out of my budget, and we left the salon without ordering the gown (and with me in tears).

We believe the owner was convinced that I would buy the dress at the higher price and that he did not think he would lose the sale, and our belief was confirmed the next day when I got a phone call from him telling me (condescendingly) that he would do me a special favor by lowering the price and that I could come in right away to order the gown. By then, I had already spoken to several salons in the area and found that they were selling the very same Maggie Sottero gown for several hundred dollars less than Jeffre Bridals was. It was all very sneaky to me, and I chose not to give my business to a liar.

While Jefre's consultants and seamstress were nice, helpful, and friendly in my experience, the salon's owner is its biggest detriment. He was very rude and was willing to operate under a very poor business practice in order to make a few bucks. A businessman should NEVER tell the customer that they are wrong, and I do not believe they should lie about prices in order to make a better sale. He embarrassed me in front of my family and other customers, and he seemed to enjoy it. There are other salons nearby with better selections, MUCH better prices, and owners/managers who are good at their jobs. Under no circumstances would I recommend.
