Ladies, DO NOT BUY YOUR DRESS HERE!!! They were horrible about communicating, and my dress only arrived two weeks before my wedding. They did not give me any kind of discount, and, in fact, they only called me once! I had to call them repeatedly to figure out what was going on. They actually told me that my dress had shipped at the end of July, and then at the end of August they told me that it was supposed to "ship next week". When it finally came in, I had my mother pick up my dress for me (I live out of town), and when I gave permission over the phone, I asked the owner, Art, to give my veil to her as well. He replied, "Sure, if I can find it!"

Their alterations are over-priced, and the service is despicable. They charge for pressing in the price of the dress, but won't give you a discount if you don't have it done there. They have been rude on the phone, and Art is pushy in the store.

DO NOT SHOP HERE!!

I looked far and wide at so many stores in the area from Kirkwood to Edwardsville to Godfrey and Saint Charles and Florissant. I started at LaMerite in Saint Ann and never received service as good as what they gave. They were friendly, honest, caring, and incredibly helpful. They were not pushy and they had very low prices. Why would you go anywhere else? Their service is the best and so are their prices. And don't think that I went back to them for the first dress I tried on. It was a different one entirely but I went back for a second look because of how well I was treated. They do also have quite the large selection of dresses. I got my bridesmaid dresses there, tuxedos, and even my mom's dress. The more people in the wedding party that you get to buy from them, the more discounts you get, and they have something for everyone. They were able to do the alterations which by the way were done flawlessly and quickly too. I recommend them very highly. They are very forward about the pricing and they are very fair in the way they handle business. They have been around for over 50 years...they know what they're doing!

This dress shop is TERRIBLE and I definitely DO NOT recommend using them. My Mom ordered her dress back in May an we are now a week out from my wedding and she still has not gotten her dress. They are telling her that they don't know where the dress is and that it could be caught up in "customs" from china and may not arrive in time. As a solution, they've offered us the stained, torn, and used sample dress at FULL PRICE and won't fix it! Are you kidding me? NOT ACCEPTABLE! The owner is rude, unorganized and is a poor businessman and has absolutely no concern about the stress of me or my mother not having a dress a week before my wedding. Thank God I didn't get my wedding dress from him! Take your business elsewhere if you want to avoid headaches a week before your wedding.

I picked out my bridesmaid dresses from this store because they were the most affordable (even though other stores could not believe the designer would let them sell their dress so cheap), but in the end I felt HORRIBLE because ALL of my best friends had to spend a fortune altering the dresses. I have girls ranging from 2-10 and he had them ordering sizes 2 to 3 sizes bigger than what they are. For example, my size 2 girl ordered an 8 and my 4-6 size girls were told they needed at 10 and they are all swimming in them! They were going to go against what he said, but he made them feel guilty and told them they wouldnt fit if they did. They have an alteration place that is associated with them, and many seamstress I spoke with told me that places like this do that so that you have to spend more money going through their alterations... well we took our $ elsewhere after they came in, but it is ridiculous that every one of the dresses had to be altered. Not to mention the owner is stubborn and can be quite short and rude with you. I would not recommend this place, unless you want to leave frustrated and broke!

I love the unique selection at La Merite. We tried other shops but no one had such different dresses at their prices. The lady I worked with was so helpful, not rushing us in and out, taking however much time I wanted and not offering opinions before I made my mind up on my own so she wasn't talking me into - or out of - anything.

This place was very helpful in getting all my dresses together. They were very prompt and very reasonable. They even worked with my budget for the dresses! I got my dress much cheaper than some other places. This is a must. Go to La Merite. They are awesome.

I bought my dress elsewhere and had is serviced my this shop and their seamstress, Paulina. I was VERY satisfied with the services. Art cleaned and pressed my dress and my mothers and Paulina did our alterations. It all turned out wonderful and I would definitely recommend them.

I bought my dress at another store, and had it altered and cleaned by LaMerite, and their partner seamstress (who is amazing by the way) My dress had blizzard beading all along a sweetheart neckline, and they took it in, finished off all the seams so no beads were lost, got my dress brilliant white, and full all in about a week. I would bring any dress to them to be cleaned/altered. Wonderful job!
