I had an amazing experience at Julie Allen's. It was my first time searching for a dress. I walked in with a few pictures of wedding dresses that I liked, and they actually ended up having one of the exact dresses. It was the first dress I tried on and it was perfect! I ended up choosing this exact dress I had wanted. All of my bridesmaids and my maid of honor came with me. Jessica (the woman helping us) asked if they wanted to try on some bridesmaids dresses since we found my dress so quickly. Then, she helped us pick out the perfect bridesmaids dresses and maid of honor dress on the same day! They were great at Julie Allen's, incredibly friendly and helpful, and I LOVE MY DRESS! (Also, the dress was totally within my budget! They carry a range of dresses and can fit almost anyone's budget). I highly recommend you go to Julie Allen's!

Words cannot express how truly outstanding my experiences have been with Julie Allen Bridals. All of the staff members here are extremely helpful and enthusiastic about helping you find that perfect dress. After picking what I thought was THE dress, I later called Melanie to let her know I needed to come back in to make the decision. She welcomed me back the following week and helped me to decide on the perfect dress. Three months later, my mom and I went in to look at some bridesmaids dresses, without an appointment, and the staff non only remembered us upon arriving and greeted us with open arms, but helped us to find wonderful dresses. I went to two other bridal shops for bridesmaids dresses and it only confirmed why I will never go anywhere else other than Julie Allen Bridals. Huge selection!

Julie Allen Bridal was simply amazing! I was taken care of mostly by Melanie and Cassie, but the entire staff was polite, professional, knowledgeable, and friendly. They made me feel like I had known them my whole life and they truly seemed to care, not just about my dress/accessories, but also about making the process stress-free and fun! I got my bridesmaids' dresses, my dress, and my accessories at Julie Allen and all were high quality, well-fitted, and beautiful. Thank you Melanie, Cassie, and all the staff at Julie Allen! I would highly recommend this Bridal Shop!!!

I got my wedding dress from Julie Allen Bridals and had such a good experience from beginning to end. The bridal consultant helping me was impressive in her ability to pare down what I wanted in a dress and bring me dresses that only included elements that I wanted. I had two different dresses in mind and she was great, but not pushy, in helping me make a decision. I ended up with a dress by a designer I hadn't heard about (Marissa) and was absolutely delighted with what I chose. I also didn't really want a belt, but ended up leaving with one because my consultant enlightened me as to how good it could look.

I had to have alterations done twice because I lost weight (great problem to have) but the seamstress that they have on site is a riot. She was so skillful and funny to boot that my mom, sister and I were literally in stitches (bad pun) when we left. She recommended specific types of alterations that would preserve the integrity of the lace dress and make the dress fit me perfectly.

My mom was even able to get her MOB dress and a second dress for my cousin's wedding!

The ladies that work here are great and if you even have a small idea of what you envisioned yourself walking down the aisle in, they can help you understand what your options are to make the best decision for you. You won't feel like you are being forced or rushed into making a decision.

Staff and expertise helped me feel that I will look my best and make my son proud of me on his wedding day. I found the perfect,age appropriate gown with their help. Even though I was late in looking for my dress, they worked to get it for me for my sons May wedding even when it was delivery for June weddings that were being scheduled at that time. This experience was relaxing with no pressure to make a sale. Anyone who doesn't stop by to look for your mother's dress here is missing out on a very pampered experience.

Thank you, Julie Allen, especially Lauren who helped me find the perfect dress after bringing in so many pictures of different styles that I liked and Cassie, who tailored the dress to perfection. I cannot imagine a more beautiful dress. I really appreciated the one-on-one help, the honest opinions, patience, and kindness that the employees extended to me. I hope I have the opportunity to go to galas and other events in the future so I return to Julie Allen where among the most beautiful of dresses in the world and among the most best employees that there could be exist!

I thought bridal dress shopping would be overwhelming, take several days, several trips to stores, but Julie Allen was the first store I visited and my dream dress was among the first few that I had tried on.

When our wedding date was changed to an earlier date, they were able to get my dress for me earlier, and for a small fee.

Thank you again again, Julie Allen!!!

I happen to select Julie Allen Bridal at random because it was near my friend's house whom I was going dress shopping with. It was probably the best decision I made. I went dress shopping about a year before my wedding in January. I walked in and I felt that they really took the time to get to know a little about me and ask what kind of dress I was looking for and where the wedding was going to be. Once I said sweetheart neckline, lace and that I wanted a sash and at the time I wanted the wedding to be in a barn, the lady who was helping me said, "oh I think I have the perfect dress for you!" Although after that "perfect dress" I tried on a bunch more just for kicks, (they were very patient and didn't tell me there was a time limit or anything like I have seen on some of those wedding shows) I actually ended up buying the first dress that I tried on and it was exactly what I wanted and it was within my price range of $1,000. Every time I called on the phone to schedule appointments they were very friendly and helpful. Closer to my wedding I ended up purchasing my beautiful veil from them and doing the alterations there too so my dream dress fit me like a glove. I have been married for over a month and I am still getting compliments on the dress and veil and how stunning I looked on my wedding day. The dress and how you feel in the dress truly makes you day, so it's important that you trust the bridal shop to help to bring out your beauty! Thank you Julie Allen Bridal for everything!

My twin sister had purchased her gown from Julie Allen Bridals in 2009 for a 2010 wedding and since she had a great experience, I was absolutely willing to give it a shot. Jessica, the consultant who assisted us, was fabulous. She listens to what you are looking for and did not rest until she found the perfect gown for me (luckily it only took me 11 gowns to find it!). I ordered a gown, all my bridesmaids dresses and a veil that day. After second guessing the length of the veil, I went in 2 weeks later and Julie Allen’s was more than accommodating and flexible. After deciding on a long veil modeled after a shorter veil they immediately called the designer to see if they would make it and ship it to us in time. When the veil arrived unfortunately it was not the right one but Julie Allen stepped in immediately to help fix it. I had all of my alterations done there as well and the dress fit my body perfectly. The result was EXACTLY what I wanted and envisioned. My bridesmaids looked stunning in their dresses. I cried the minute I put both the dress and veil on together – it was perfect. Julie Allen Bridals was with me through every step – finding the dress, altering the veil, fixing the veil, alterations etc. – good or bad. It is not the type of salon where once you find the dress and purchase it, their job is done. I would recommend them to anyone getting married in the area!

I have nothing but great things to say about Julie Allen Bridal. Everyone there was helpful, friendly, and so excited about everything. I went there for my sister in law's bridesmaid dress, my own bridal gown, and my bridesmaids dresses.
They are amazing. I lost my mom to cancer when I was younger and wanted to wear her veil even though it was 30 years old and crinkled in a ball in my attic. They steamed it and stored it for me and it looked brand new on my wedding day.
If you want a positive experience and to feel like you matter, Julie Allen is IT!

I got my dress back in October when I did not know my exact wedding date since I was a military bride. Melanie was able to connect with me and picked out dresses that would work any time of year if we had to change the date. She did not overwhelm me with too many choices, and explained to my family when I found a dress that I loved that my family didn't want me to buy that I had found the one. She was not pushy, but it always felt like she was on my team. Luckily we were able to get married with the original date we chose and when I came for my alterations everyone was so awesome. My dress basically fit and just needed to be hemmed and small alterations. Anna was amazing and took the amount of time I needed until I was comfortable in my dress. When I picked up my dress they were helpful with explain what I should do with it for the two days before my wedding. Then finally after my wedding I brought my dress back to be cleaned and preserved. When my sister get married I will definitely recommend taking them to Julie Allen!

I LOVED working with Julie Allen. They were very knowledgeable and always responded to my phone calls. They were on top of everything. They made sure that everything arrived on time and even quickly corrected a problem when my grandmother's dress for the wedding arrived in a short version rather then long. The on site alterations were PERFECT! I highly recommend.

I couldn't be happier with my experience at Julie Allen. Their consultant helped me find the perfect dress and the price was great. The owner is friendly and accommodating, which was important because I like in VA and had to make special trips up to CT for shopping and alterations and they made it work for me. My alterations person, Anna, was spectacular and is just SO talented.

I can not find ONE thing bad to say about Julie Allen! I found a dress in a magazine that I fell in love with. When I found out that it was within my price range I googled different shops in my area where I could just take a look and see if it was as beautiful in person. EVERY shop I called would not let me come in just to try on the one dress except for Julie Allen. They let me come in put me in the sample dress, then I left. A few weeks later I went for my official dress shopping with my mother and MOH.

The sales girl remembered me. They put the three of us in one large dressing room and gave me a slip and a strapless cossetted bra so I would be covered at all time. Then it was like Magic they had me in and out of about 15-18 dresses. They were honest if something didn't look good on me and they didn't push anything that was out of our price range, IN FACT that didn't even come close the the price we were looking at everything was under! I ended up purchasing that first dress I tried on.

Everytime that I have gone in there all the girls remember who I am, which I am amazed by. The Seamstress Anna WAS Brilliant. I fell in love with her the moment I met her. The owner (which I can not remember her name) Is involved in everything and super friendly. Whenever I go into this shop I leaving thinking I want to quit my job and start selling wedding dresses!

Thank you so much!!!!

I can not find ONE thing bad to say about Julie Allen! I found a dress in a magazine that I fell in love with. When I found out that it was within my price range I googled different shops in my area where I could just take a look and see if it was as beautiful in person. EVERY shop I called would not let me come in just to try on the one dress except for Julie Allen. They let me come in put me in the sample dress, then I left. A few weeks later I went for my official dress shopping with my mother and MOH.

I am so glad I worked with Julie Allen Bridal! Not only was my consultant amazing, understanding of my budget, and accomadating, but she pinned the perfect dress for me so quickly!

I am originally from CT but live in VA so was only able to be in town three times before my wedding. The first time I came I bought the dress, the second my dress wasn't in yet, and the third was for my first fitting (only a few weeks before the wedding). The next time I was going to see them was the Thursday before my Sunday wedding. The dress fit MUCH better but still had some tweaking to be done. The dress was finished by Saturday and fit PERFECTLY. They worked with me and my crazy schedule and situation. I truly don't think another bridal shop could have done this. I should probably mention that I was only engaged for 5.5 months so they really rocked and rolled :)

Julie Allen Bridals was the first and last place I went bridal gown shopping. Cheryl helped me find the perfect wedding dress that was the style and fit I was looking for. Also, Matron of Honor, MoB, and MoG dresses all came from Julie Allen. They had everything we were looking for, all the latest styles and newest bridesmaids dresses. I could not have asked for a better bridal salon expirence!

I can not speak highly enough of Julie Allen Bridals. The staff is friendly, courteous, helpful, and supportive. We met the women of Julie Allen while looking for my sisters gown in 2007 and when it came time for my wedding, I definitely wanted to go see them for my own and I couldn't imagine going anywhere else. When we walked in, I was greeted with a hug, smile, and congratulations as if I were part of their family. From that second, I felt like I was one of the gang. Melanie brought in a few dresses and pointed out the dress that she thought I would fall in love with. She was right! The gown was perfect for me. It had every detail I wanted and was an amazing fit for my body type. She really listened while I was telling her what I dreamed of for my wedding day.

The thing I love most about Julie Allen Bridals, is the way they can make you feel like part of their family or one of their best friends. They genuinely care about each and every one of the brides that comes through their door and it shows in their actions and words every time you see them. I genuinely miss going to see them and if/when we renew our vows, I will go there for a dress to wear. I send every one of my engaged friends/family members to them and I would tell anyone who is looking for a dress for themselves, bridesmaids, or family members that need a dress for their wedding to go and see Melanie and Lauren and the rest of the Julie Allen family because I couldn't imagine having had a better experience trying on a gown, picking a gown, and being incredibly happy with my choice of gown because they made it so wonderful. My sisters, mother, sister-in-law and mother-in-law all bought their gowns for not only my wedding, but both of my sister's weddings and my sister-in-law's wedding from Julie Allen Bridals because of the experiences we have had with them each and every time.

They are truly wonderful. I can not say enough good things about Julie Allen Bridals.

This bridal shop is amazing. They are so professional and truly care about every single person that they touch. They went above and beyond to ensure that my veil made it to my wedding. The veil manufacturer went out of business and did not inform the store. When it was due to arrive the bridal shop began calling, emailing, and following up via fax. They did not put me in a panic and just tell me that I was not having a veil they called me and explained the situation but ALREADY had a back up plan in place. The veil arrived and I was able to pick it up as the same time as my dress!!!! They do whatever it takes to make you and your day feel special. I highly recommend searching through the wide variety of wedding gowns, mothers dresses, bridesmaid dresses and even tuxedos!

This venue is closed Sundays and Mondays. I have known Melanie for many years, and have used her services for many occaisions, Bat Mitzvah, weddings (I was the attendant), Proms. To be able to use her for my wedding was an honor. Melanie and her staff were very warm and welcome, and were wonderful with fittings and alterations. They do alterations in-house, and you do not need to go elsewhere for them. the prices for alterations are reasonable, too. for everything, the max is 250.00, but I only paid I believe 100-150 because I did not need a hem.

Julie Allen was amazing!! Everyone that works there is truly there for you. My dress had to be reorded a week before my wedding because the designer who made the dress gave me bad tool! So without stressing me out they ordered me a brand new dress and had to take the original top off the skirt and attach the new skirt to the original top to make sure it still fit me perfectly. By the time the seamstress, Anna, got done with the dress I would have never known if they didn't tell me what happened with it. I recommend every bride to go there! Handsdown, a wonderful, amazing place that has been established for years!

I looked everywhere in NYC for the perfect dress and found it at my hometown store. Julie Allen bridals has a great selection and the service just can't be beat! From the first visit there, they remembered me whenever they saw me or when I called. When my dress did arrive, it was too big on me (yeah!) and they did a PERFECT job with the alterations. It fit me like a glove...perfect. It was a strapless dress and I never had to pull it up once. Alterations are a huge part of everything.

I loved working with Melanie. I was very hesitant about trying on gowns as I'm not very comfortable with my body but she was amazing from the start. She put me in a dress that started the appointment off on the right foot and made me feel fantastic (although it wasn't the dress I chose). My only negative is that I was unhappy with the seamstress. The dress fit at the first fitting but was taken in too much and became a little tight. Looking back, I wish I was more vocal about my needs because when I look at some of my pictures from my wedding day I get upset about the fit of the dress, which is something no bride ever wants to feel.

When I first started to try on dresses I had a vision in mind. I wanted a little bling, a corset back...I can not thank the ladies at Julie Allen enough for encouraging me to try something completely different! I tried on a Marisa dress with a little lace and never looked back! I went to two other bridal stores and kept comparing each dress to the one I had on at Julie Allen. It was so nice not to feel rushed and to work with people that are as excited about your dress as you are. I also bought my bridesmaids dresses here as well and everyone looked BEAUTIFUL! I would recommend Julie Allen to any bride!

I had to purchase a bridesmaids dress that had been been picked out by the bride. I normally wear between a size 10 or 12. They measured me and ordered a size 18w. When the dress came in it was huge. They charged me extra for the large size and then charged $65 for alterations. The dress still did not fit after alterations and had to take it somewhere else. Not a good experience. I would not recommend.

I was given a discount and had the credit card fee waived if I made a decision that day, which I did. But then when it came time for the dress to come in, it was no where to be found! They were extremely unhelpful and dismissive when I called to enquire. I was told several times that "it would come" and "they were looking into it", but it wasn't until I insisted on an answer that I was actually taken seriously. They never admitted to their mistake and even tried to make it seem like I was overreacting. When I went to pick up the dress I encountered 2 other women there that were basically in tears over their experiences as well. One was a mother-of-the-bride who was still without her dress 2 weeks before her daughters wedding and no one even cared! Take your money elsewhere. They have the same dresses as other shops in the area and it just isn't worth the risk!

We warned by several people not to go here and we should have listened. Terrible experience. We ordered one size too small and the only solution offered was to lose weight, two months before wedding. The owner demanded payment in full, on the spot, without even being able to try on the dress. She refused to schedule a fitting until the bride lost weight. Never even let us talk to a seamstress. The issue was hip bones and rib cage, not weight. We paid in full to avoid a scene and because it was the right thing to do. 2nd mistake. Needless to say, we had to buy another dress and will have to sell this one. We're out $2,000 and the bride is heartbroken.

All we hoped for was some support and compassion, maybe a little refund since they let us order the wrong size and are making a huge profit? All they gave us was the bill, insulting weight loss advice, nastiness and an emotional kick in gut.

Please don't risk your important day with this woman - she is dishonest and does not care about your day or your feelings. Fit the dress to the bride not the bride to the dress. They never even suggested trying another dress - just lose weight. Shame on them!

Wishing you lots of luck and love on your day :) We have a gorgeous $2000 ivory wedding gown, size 10, never altered or even tried on if anyone is interested. Best offer.
