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.

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.

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.

As I could not find the dress I wanted in Regina (my own city), I went to Saskatoon. I was sure that I wanted something simpler in ivory and wanted chiffon. I had to try on a lot of 'ug' dresses to find the 'laaaaaaaa' dress and knew it as soon as I put it on and stepped out of the dressing room and the world stood still for that moment. Jenny is the woman who owns the boutique and she takes care of all of the fittings and alterations. She has been in this business a very long time and it is evident how much she enjoys her work; so genuine and unlike so many of the salespeople I encountered at other stores. She is wonderful with her staff and it shows in the way they assist you. Jenny is kind but also honest and tells you how the dress should look and how to wear it with flair and grace on your special day. She won't stop at tweaking the dress until it looks right. She helped me to look like a goddess on my wedding day.

After going to a few of the other places in Saskatoon to look at dresses, Jenny's won out by far. They have a huge selection and their staff is extremely helpful. I had spent the day looking for a dress and was getting deflated. Jenny's was the last place I stopped. I found my perfect dress there! A beautiful Alfred Sung dress. I had so many compliments on that dress at the wedding; I just felt amazing. Jenny herself is a great seamstress, and my dress was ready to go 2 months before the wedding (I ordered my dress 7 months before our wedding, so I was a little nervous). Great experience and talking to other brides who have gone there, they wouldn't recommend anywhere else in Saskatoon.

Seemed also that once you'd turned over your money...and if you weren't a Bridezilla...you didn't get the time of day.

Bought the dress, was booked in by a consultant for a fitting, and this date was not acceptable when I showed up for the fitting (too close to the wedding date). The choice of the date was not my own, but fit in by their schedule!

My MOH and I went in to try on dresses (for her), and when I asked to see my dress to see how some of the dresses looked with it, it was a big deal to get my dress. I was under the impression I could try it on whenever I liked...and shouldn't I have been able to see if it looked ok with the other dress?

Additional visits had staff either bored to be there, phony when they talked to you (why are most wedding dress staff that way?!), or didn't want to help at all (and had attitude). When they hadn't done a major alteration a week before the wedding, I was practically kicked out of the store and had to rush through rectifying that it was going to be fixed....all because it was closing time.

However, the gown selection seemed to be the best I had encountered.

Jenny is amazing, she knew right away after seeing me try on dress after dress which one would be perfect. She asked me to try on just one more before I left and it was the one. She is VERY attentive to what you need, what she knows works, and she takes pride in her work. I went to EVERY bridal store in Regina and Saskatoon and this one was by far the absolute best for selection, service and even price. Three other brides I know all went there and were extremely satisfied.

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!!
