I walked into Jenny's Bridal and it did not take long for me to get out off by the rudeness and attitude of the staff. I am a woman of a larger stature and I was made to feel that I was not welcome from the moment I stepped through the door. Terrible experience for a woman who has dreamed of this moment her whole life. If I could have given less than one star I would.

Jenny's treatment of not only the transgender person but all the others including the girl in the wheelchair and the overweight lady is disgusting.Please don't support this business.They deserve to be shut down because of the disgusting views they have.

No one should even bother visiting Jenny's Bridal Boutique. This woman is rude, inflexible, and egotistical, imo. In addition, she totally humiliated a transgender friend, refusing to allow her to even try on a dress - because she was a "man". The owner then refused to back down or apologize, even tho the story has become National News. Boycott this store. They discriminate against the Human Rights Code, & have no problem humiliating women. I also just learned that a little over a year ago she also refused to serve a woman in a wheelchair, telling the woman to leave the store because the wheels on her chair were dirty & might mark her carpet. This woman does not deserve anyone's business. (Both of these stories are absolutely true, & can be found in a google search, btw).

Jenny's Bridal Boutique was horrible. There were problems with my own wedding experience, but more significantly, they recently kicked out a transgendered woman and refused to let her shop there. It is not the first bad story I have heard from a friend either. I recently was told about them sending out a disabled bride whose wheelchair was aparently a problem. This is a bigoted business and I don't recommend you bring your money there.

Jenny herself helped me, and her staff also helped my maid of honour purchase her dress. My experiences were all exceedingly positive. I had heard negative stories going in and was quite nervous, but was also aware Jenny's had the best selection in the city so my mother convinced me to try them.

Jenny is blunt and will tell you if you don't look good in something - along the lines of "that dress is unfortunately not meant for your body shape" - and will follow it up with a suggestion for another style. I was happy with this service, because I agreed with her. I didn't want to end up with a dress where you could see the outline of my belly button clearly enunciated through the fabric. I found a beautiful dress, that I would never have tried on otherwise, but that still fits with the vision I had coming in. Jenny even found a way to tie in the quirky bright blue shoes I wanted to wear. And when the dress I loved was 50% over budget, she found one that was similar, that was under budget for me to try. They do in house alterations, and she does insist you leave the dress there until those alterations have been done.

When my MOH and I were shopping, it was a stressful experience for us. She is plus size and never wears dresses. As is - in the 15 years I have known her, I have never seen her wear a dress, ever. Emily, the sales assistant who helped us, was simply amazing. She didn't once get frustrated, snicker, or make a rude comment (nor did anyone else). In fact, when we went to The Dress Bridal afterwards, the sales assistant who helped us kept insisting she knew what my MOH should wear and when my MOH didn't like it - she just walked away, leaving my MOH stuck in a corseted dress. We returned to Jenny's to purchase in part because the service there was so much better.

Absolutely horrible experience, I am glad I did not buy from here. Rude, poor quality service, poor quality everything. Also, recently found out the owner is incredibly transphobic. UGH!

My experience is complicated, but yet very disappointing and I would never recommend anyone purchase a dress from Jenny’s. I bought a dress two ago and the engagement fell through. Definitely not the stores fault, but they were not understanding. I had purchased the dress off the rack, in full, the week before the engagement was called off and when I asked if I could get a refund for the dress, since I had never taken it from the store and not had one alternation done to it, they refused. Ok fine, still a little irritating but I’ll give them that one.

Two years later I get engaged and look into getting the same dress altered, since it had never been altered and didn’t fit exactly right. I called to see if Jenny’s would do it, and offered to pay for the alterations, considering how much time had passed. The manager told me that the alterations were included in the price of the dress when I had purchased it, but that they only had time for new upcoming brides and that she would not look at my dress. This angered me because she basically told me I paid for a service that they didn’t provide! So once they have your money, they refuse to offer you any services. She said that because my first wedding was cancelled that she was not obligated to help me, even though I offered to pay for her services. I didn’t know that I had to give a wedding date when I purchased my dress, what if I wanted to have a two year engagement before my wedding, would she not do it???

The way the manager spoke to me was very disrespectful and disappointing. I spent a lot of money in her store and would have purchased my bridesmaid dresses there if she wasn’t such a witch. It’s almost like she has been in the business too long and should have retired years ago. If you don't enjoy what you do, stop doing it! I would recommend taking your business elsewhere.

The staff at Jennys Bridal was exceptional. I had a few experiences there while shopping for my own dress (though due to store selection, I did not find my own wedding dress there). However, for the bridesmaid dresses, they have a whole upstairs floor dedicated to their bridesmaid selection. They carried many lines such as Alfred Angelo, Venus, Dessy, Alfred Sung and more. My girls had a large assortment of dresses to try on and all of the samples came in so many different colors. We lucked out when we chose their bridesmaid dress as the sample was in the color we were going to be ordering it in! It was really nice to see exactly what theyd be getting, rather than envisioning the dress in a different color. The staff was always around to offer their opinion and their advice. They made the whole experience very easy. The girls dresses are ordered and we are currently waiting to receive them. I have ordered dresses there in the past (for previous weddings I was a part of), and every time, the dresses have came in wonderfully!

I loved shopping at Jenny's! I have been in there so often they pretty much know me by name. The staff is always friendly and welcoming with a great big smile on their faces. I felt comfortable about being in the store and trying gowns on. Let's face it every girl is nervous about trying on dresses since they are never comfortable in their own skin, but Jenny made me feel amazing! I came back to buy all of my bridesmaid dresses and my viel. They always had suggestions and what was even better is they compliment you on how great you look, and they are sincere about it! If I had to share that experience again I would go back without any hesiatation, no matter what has been said in the news. This is an amazing store and they have great staff including the ower!!
