The business was started in an apartment in Jackson Heights, Queens, New York in 2004. Since we lived in a small one-bedroom apartment, we tried to reclaim our closet space by selling off unused items. My wife’s wedding dress was one of those items. It was a simple floor length ball gown that we paid no more than $100 back in Hong Kong. We thought we could sell it on eBay for around $50. To our surprise, we sold the dress for $150!


Obviously, it caught our attention. Buying wedding gowns online was a new trend in the bridal industry, so we became interested in doing just that. We started to do some research and realized that it was difficult to find high quality wedding dresses at a reasonable price. The dresses were either over-priced or they were inferior in quality. We also saw that the high alteration cost after purchasing the wedding dress. So, we set out to start a bridal apparel business to sell custom-sized high-quality wedding dresses at reasonable prices.


We started to experience with several different production studios. We contacted several studios that generate the most eBay dress sales. We found that the top eBay dressmakers did not produce gowns that met our expectations. Through some tough trials and errors, we finally narrowed down to a couple of production studios in China that were able to produce good quality dresses that we could sell at fair prices.


We then purchased used dresses by big designers’ labels and studied their production techniques. We passed on the knowledge to our production teams. The end result is high-quality dresses at reasonable prices since we sell our own line directly to the public. At the beginning, we did mostly inspired versions of other designers’ styles. Recently, however, we moved toward designing our own styles.


Presently, we sell directly to our customers at our new store in Long Island NY as well as on our online store. We also act as the production house for other designers' labels located in the US. Read less

I ordered my dress from Julius Bridal. At first they were great and very helpful with ordering and taking my money. Then when it came time for me to get the dress it was no where to be found. After they took my money it was impossible to get a response from them! Lo and behold it was one month before my wedding, and they FINALLY sent me a dress, I took it home, and IT WAS THE WRONG ONE! I sent it back, they got it, and NEVER refunded my money. I had to go to Davids Bridal to get a dress because I never got mine that I ordered from Julius! My wedding never lived up to my expectations because I had to settle for another dress a month out from my wedding. It was a horrible experience. DO NOT ORDER FROM THEM! THEY WILL RIP YOU OFF!

This is one of the worst companies I've ever had to deal with. I don't mind if a company makes a mistake or just plain sucks because I know we all make mistakes, and we all suck at times, but honestly, Julius Bridal is a DISASTER! They were responsive in the begging and when we decided to order a dress, they charged us $800.00. After that, it was EXTREMELY rare to ever get any type of response. After waiting for longer than they said to receive the dress, we asked for the tracking number so we could see where it was at. Allison (the Director of Sales) said they didn't have one.. Seriously? What business "doesn't have a tracking number" for a customer who is ordering a product and having it shipped? Days later, we finally received a small box from China with the dress smashed and wrinkled inside. Long story short, it was a DISASTER and nothing like what their pictures show and what they say they're going to give you! They'll take your money for their "originally designed dresses", then send the request to "production" in China, and have it made for half the price or less, and pocket the rest for themselves. We sent the dress back and confirmed via USPS that they have received it. It's been 2 weeks since they received it. They will not send our refund, and they ignore ALL of our e-mails and ALL phone calls!!! Take EXTREME caution before dealing with this death trap!!

I did a lot of research before ending up at Julius Bridal Shop. I even had a bridal dress with another store on deposit, but I wasn't happy! Once I arrived at Julius I was so pleased with the customer service, i met Julius him self ( the owner) who was very patient, warm and understanding. I selected a beautiful dress with a jacket. They did what they said they kept me undated via email on the status of my dress. When it came time for me to come in for my fitting the dress fit me perfectly with no alterations needed, it was more beautiful then I remembered. My husband rented a tux from the other vendors in the building that also was very good quality. He looked so handsome. All and all I received raved reviews at my wedding complimented me and just knew because it was a designer gown that I must have paid a fortune for it. Not true at all!! Over all I would highly highly recommend Julius Bridal. You could not find a better designer, with beautiful one of a kind dresses that fits every budget!! Go see what I'm talking about visit the shop you wont be disappointed.

I cannot say enough nice things about Julius and Mimi. The dress that I wanted to purchase was about 10,000. I was so upset thinking that I would not find a beautiful dress for the right price, until I stumbled upon Julius Bridal in Oceanside. I was looking at photographers and happen to just see his store because there are a few vendors in the same building and I was amazed, blown away! He was able to make me my own custom gown and I was hesitant bc I figured it would cost thousands making a custom gown but I was wrong! Not only did I receive personal attention, but got the gown of my dreams, even a $10,000 gown cannot provide, bc I was able to tweak and play around with the style to finally create my own gown and it was thousands less! Thank you Julius Bridal!!

I needed to buy a formal gown for a ball I was attending in the fall. I placed my order late, so I was worried about getting the dress on time. I had a backup dress that I bought from Julius' ebay store a few months ago, but I could not find anyone to get it altered. The seamstresses here said it was "too complicated" because it was technically a wedding dress but in a different color. They said I'd need a much more professional seamstress to do it. I was disappointed, so I just bought some double sided tape and hoped for the best! I was really hoping this new dress would make it on time! I was also worried because the dress I ordered was one of their wedding dresses that I had changed a bit and made in a different color! I was hoping the changes I made would look OK. Julius and I were in constant contact with updates for me since he knew I was nervous. To my surprise, the dress arrived just in time! I didn't have the time to get it altered, but I didn't need it. The dress fit like a glove the first time I put it on. It didn't even need to be steamed! I hate to brag...but I definitely had the best dress at the formal. Everyone kept commenting how pretty it was! Next time I'll make sure to order early enough to prevent any lateness. Afterall, I had only given them about 2 months to make the dress. So if it was too late, I would have understood and just kept the dress for next year. I definitely know who I'm going to call for my next event! Thanks, Julius!

I started searching for my dress about a year ago. The dresses I like were way over my budget. Then, I found Julius Bridal.

I went to their old location in Elmhurst and saw some really amazing dresses. Julius himself helped me in the process of selecting my dress. He listened and took notes. I finally slected a Lazaro look-alike dress from their collection. At first, I suspected it was a scam because the price was so low and the quality of the dresses was comparable to some big name designers. On the other hand, Julius was so easy-going that he never once pressured me to purchase anything from him.

I told him I was going to come back later and he didn't even ask me to set up another appointment. All he said was "let me know when you are ready."

After 2 weeks, I decided to take a leap of faith. I paid everything up from to receive a 10% discount. Then I waited about 3 months. In between, I touched base with Julius to make sure everything was fine.

When the dress arrived, there were some minor issues but overall it was a great dress! Julius took the responsibility to fix the issues using his seamstress. He even pointed out issues that I didn't notice!

The final result was an amazing dress! Everyone at my wedding thought I paid over $6000 for the dress. Little did they knew that it was a Julius Bridal dress and I paid only 25% of that assumed price!

Thanks Julius!!!

One suggestion to people that are interested in Julius Bridal dresses: Give them plenty of time of time to make your dress!

Julius Bridal was by far one of my favorite vendors! Every time I made a request it was met. They went above and beyond to make this experience great for me. My dress was gorgeous. They also made my bridesmaid gowns and the color was perfect. Those were great as well and people are still complimenting me on how perfect the color was. I cannot stress how great they were! You cannot beat this service or the quality of the gowns you will receive at their more than reasonable prices.
