I want to start by saying this is my first review. Don’t get me wrong, I ALWAYS read them but have never actually contributed. I have had such a fantastic experience working with Margherita and Maria at La Sposa Bridal however, that I just had to share my experience. I actually can’t believe all of the negative reviews they’ve received over the years. You never know which way to go between a large bridal chain or a small shop but I can’t say how happy I am that I decided to go with the small shop. So far, everything has been perfect and believe me, I am particular. I research to wit’s end before making a decision on something. I researched, read reviews, price shopped, etc. and decided to go with La Sposa for my gown alterations, bridesmaid dresses, veil, and bridal satchel (or whatever the correct term is for a bridal purse). To be honest, it isn’t even whether something turns out perfect or not, it is the level of attention, care, and honesty that is most important to me. Margherita is so dedicated to her customers and it shows through and through. She has never made empty promises to me or fluffed up any aspect of her business. Every statement she’s made has been the truth. Sure, she may say something that you don’t 100% agree with, but that’s fine – she’s the professional. At no time have I ever felt slighted working with La Sposa. In fact, I’ve experienced quite the opposite. Although there’s no doubt my next statement is going to be naïve, I honestly feel like I am her most important customer. The fact that I can even say that speaks volumes. Sure, she may not have the broadest selection of dresses or the most modern bathroom, but she’s honest and genuine. To me, that’s the most important. You don’t find that very often in the bridal business. And I’ve been to A LOT of bridal stores.

On the day after Thanksgiving, my daughter decided to look for her wedding dress. She had no appointment, so all the big stores told her she couldn't come. Margherita told us to come right in. We were treated like royalty. My daughter was eager to find something on the half price rack but there was nothing in a size 4. She found a gorgeous gown that was a size 16 but we were certain it could not be altered to a four. How wrong we were! Marguerita said she could do it and she did!!! My daughter lives in Texas and was just in Newton for 10 days. Marguerita did 2 fittings in that short amount of time. She even came in on her day off to do some extra work. The gown had four layers of fabric so all the alterations needed to be done four times. I am very happy with her work and would happily recommend her.

I had a wonderful experience with La Sposa- specifically Margarita the shop owner. I had tried several shops before finding La Sposa. The wedding dress that I found there was perfect! I needed several alterations to make it the dress of my dreams- including removing the entire train and adding chiffon straps and Margarita's work on it was impeccable. She delivered on all of the promises that she made and was informative, fair and kind throughout the process. Her skill took the dress that I had chosen to a whole new level- it was perfect. Thank you, La Sposa!!!

What a wonderful experience! Marguerita was very helpful and put me at ease throughout the process. I was panicked because the dress I ordered from a different store came in defective and there was not enough time to order a new one. Marguerita picked out a beautiful Mori Lee dress for me and had it delivered to the store in two weeks. She did all of the alterations to make the dress fit beautifully. I cannot thank her enough for all of help and it was such a pleasure working with her to find my dream dress!

La Sposa saved my daughter's wedding! We had received a defective Watters WToo dress from a discount wholesaler in North Carolina. We went to La Sposa hoping to find a new gown. Margherita not only had the exact style of dress that my daughter adored, but she was able to order it in her size, with less than 2 months until the wedding. It came in 3 weeks before the big day, and Margherita altered it to fit beautifully, even changing the lace top to match my daughter's preferences. The bustling was beautiful, and everyone complimented the dress. My daughter felt and looked fantastic! Margherita even worked over the weekend to make sure she would be able to get the dress in on time. My daughter was so sad before she met her, and so happy afterward. It is a small shop, but the customer service is great. Her dress had all the labels, and tags.

Margarita and her staff were lovely and helped me find the perfect dress. She completely revamped it to make it slimmer looking, added a halter neck (creatively she added Velcro so it would be removable) and stitched a beautiful beaded belt. I loved how it looked after we shared the vision to make it more elegant and sophisticated. Her tailoring skills were impeccable. She also reworked my maid of honors dress that had been purchased in another shop. She takes her work very seriously and made sure I was happy with the end result.

Margherita is the owner of La Sposa Bridal. She is also the seamstress. Having an excellent seamstress on the premisies proved very helpful for my daughter's recent wedding. She is difficult to fit and Margherita did an excellent job. The dress was beautiful and priced well. The service was excellent. There have been some negative reviews but I feel that some people do not understand the Italian culture and misunderstand Margherita's remarks. We found her warm, helpful, talented and flexible. My daughter looked stunning on her wedding day, thanks to La Sposa Bridal.

I ran into La Sposa when I was passing through the area and decided to stop in. They accommodated me right from the beginning and just let me walk-in without an appt. I knew what I was looking for and after describing, the first dress I tried on was it. I'd gone to two or three other stores before stumbling onto this one and they got what I wanted immediately. Cost wise, they are very competitive with other stores, but you get the most amazing dedicated service. I felt like family with the women in this store - they treated me like I was one of their own daughters getting married and you don't find that very often. I even found a sash that I wanted on Etsy and they were more than accommodating to take off the one from the dress and attach the one I brought in myself. Go to La Sposa and give them a try, you'll instantly fall in love with all the women there and hopefully find the dress of your dreams.

Let me just say there is a reason why Margharita has been in business at La Sposa bridal in Newton, MA for so many years. She is professional, honest, hard working, and very caring with her clients. She wants to take care of you, and makes you feel like you're right at home (right down to the delicious biscotti's on her counter!) I told her i wanted an empire style wedding dress. She didn't even ask me my size, and just pulled out one of the most gorgeous gown's I'd ever seen. She really knows her stuff! I bought the dress right then and there, (3 weeks after getting engaged) and never looked back. She is such a wonderful person to work with. I can't say enough good things about her. I ended up getting my bridesmaid and flower girl dresses at Pricilla of Boston, but really wished i had stuck with La Sposa. The week before my wedding, we found out the flower girl dresses were too small, and Pricilla was unwilling to help us out. There is a reason why they are now going out of business! HORRIBLE customer service at Pricilla of Boston! I brought the flower girl dresses to Margharita and she was able to fix them right away. I dont know what we would have done, so for that we are very greatful. Thank you again Margarita, and i'll get you a picture soon! :) - Jenna

I got my dress here for my Sept 24, 2011 wedding. The store owner Margherita is amazing and her employees are also very good (Maria is great!). You can't look through dresses here but if you give them an idea of what you are looking for they will find you the perfect dress. Margherita does phenomenal tailoring. She altered my wedding dress multiple times until I thought it was perfect.
I strongly recommend LaSposa!

I had a great experience at La Sposa Bridal! The first time that I went in I explained to Margherita what I wanted. The first dress she pulled out for me was perfect and I ended up purchasing it. She was great for the several fittings and pays close attention to detail. She does all alterations in house and does a great job. Also, this is the same place that my mother got her wedding dress 28 years ago!

My attendants and I had a wonderful experience with Margherita and her staff. It's a little, traditional shop that knows that SERVICE is what really matters!! It began when we were looking for my maid of honor's dress during her school break. They had a huge selection, and we found the perfect style that all the attendants decided they wanted. Margherita asked about a dress for me. I was not ready to begin trying on but I had an idea of what I wanted (six months before the wedding) since I wanted to lose weight first! She pulled out several dresses and found what I wanted. At the first fitting if it hadn't had shoulders (short sleeves) it would have fallen off me! I proceeded to lose about 35 lbs. before the wedding that meant the dress had to be completely taken apart and remade. Of course this meant lots more work for Margherita and her staff, but they were as happy as I was at my loss of weight. My attendants were all far away (one out of the country) until one week before the wedding and La Sposa did their fittings in that short week. And since La Sposa Bridal carries all accessories, too (shoes, veils, bras, etc.) it was so easy and individualized. We were completely happy!

I bought a WONDERFUL Sottero and Midgley dress at La Sposa. It was literally the second dress that I tried on, and every store I went to after that just reaffirmed that I got the perfect dress at an amazing price. The owner Margharita can be a bit startling with her comments, but with 25 years experience, I guess she doesnt want to beat around the bush. The alterations that they made were AMAZING!!! I have a DDD, size34 bra size and havent worn a strapless dress in 8 years, but I wore one on my wedding day!!! I cant say enough good things, and would also confirm that if you treat the staff with respect you wont be dissappointed.... I got a GREAT deal....and couldnt have had a better experience!!!

The ladies at La Sposa Bridal were fabulous! I got started on the search for my dress early, and with La Sposa being only my second stop, I found the perfect dress almost 9 months before my wedding. They were wonderful in storing it until I was ready to pick it up. In addition, my mother also found her dress there and she was visiting from Michigan. Margherita, a wonderul seamstress, did such a perfect job on my mother's dress, that she didn't even need to come back for a second alteration. Each time I went into the shop the ladies made me feel welcome, they were excited to see me try on my dress and wanted to hear all of the updates. At the last minute I decided that I needed to add another piece, which was not available in the shop, and the ladies made sure that I had it on time before getting on a flight for my wedding. This type of service is rare, La Sposa Bridal is a true gem.

My dress was the hit of my wedding, every person commented on how beautiful my dress was. The staff at La Sposa knew exactly what veil went perfectly with my dress and they tailored it to fit me perfectly. Their dresses fit into my budget (which was very small) and I am not the size of most model samples in other stores so I was so happy to find several dresses in my size.

I went to 2 other shops before stopping in at La Sposa. Not one of the dresses I tried on in the other shops even fit me. Then I went to La Sposa, and every single dress I tried on fit and looked great. It only took a few before I found "the one". The veil Margherita, the owner, paired with the dress was beautiful, and I still get compliments about it. I got all of my bridesmaid dresses here, and everyone looked beautiful. My gown was strapless, and it was the first strapless wedding dress I have ever seen that actually fit on the top and did not gape open. They did an excellent job taking it in and fitting it to my body.

La Sposa offers a huge selection of dresses. The staff is very friendly and they provide attentive service with an appointment. I had a lot of bridesmaids and I think it wore on them a bit, because they started to lose their patience at times. Often, I felt at fault or responsible for a late measurement, etc. We had our alterations done there as well. Mine were extensive, because I'm short and I needed all the beadwork moved up three inches. My dress came out perfectly, although my train kept falling down. However, three of my bridesmaids alterations were done wrong. One girl barely fit into it (they told her she gained weight. She hadn't!) and two of the girls' dresses were too big. The day of the wedding, we were taping them into their dresses. We all made it through the day, and the dresses looked beautiful, but I'm not sure how comfortable some of my girls were feeling.

La Sposa offers a huge selection of dresses. The staff is very friendly and they provide attentive service with an appointment. I had a lot of bridesmaids and I think it wore on them a bit, because they started to lose their patience at times. Often, I felt at fault or responsible for a late measurement, etc. We had our alterations done there as well.

La Sposa was wonderful to work with. My dress was beautiful and I got such a great price on it. Before I went there I was skeptical because I had read reviews that the owner was hard to work with, they won't tell you the make of the dress, and other things like that. None of that is true - the owner is SO talented and very sweet. I went in there one morning in my 3rd week of looking for dresses. I was discouraged because I didn't LOVE anything I tried on and you have to LOVE your wedding dress. She brought a dress out of the back as I was looking through the racks and told me to try it on. It was beautiful but I didn't think the cut would look right with my body shape. I was wrong, when I walked out and looked into the mirror I knew instantly it was the one I wanted. I bought it then and there, she did alterations and did a wonderful job cleaning it after my wedding. We had a second wedding in Turkey and before we went there she managed to get all the stains out and fix the tears and missing beads in the bottom - it looked like new. I have recommended La Sposa to friends and would highly recommend it to anyone. She's absolutely wonderful! Thank You La Sposa!

Be sure to get prices and information in writing. Family owned and there was some confusion with communication about the veil. It all worked out in the end. Advice: Treat all workers with respect and kindness both in person and on the phone and they will help you cut costs. If you are rude and disrespectful you will pay full price on everything. Had best price for bridesmaid dresses. I found the dresses in another store with a bigger selection and had La Sposa look it up and ordered them for me for less.
