Have you ever been to a wedding shop where the owner will not allow you to order your actual size? Well this is one. We went in to purchase bridesmaids dresses and a wedding dress for an upcoming wedding. I was size for a size 10, let's remember a size 10, and one of his workers verbally said that he (the owner) ordered it in 14 because he felt like my measurements matched what the company suggested. But I wear a 10. And agreed to a 12. Please tell me how did I manage to get a size 14 in the dress? It fell off me like a hoola hoop.

Now mind you, I have shopped here for my wedding 3 years ago, I have had other brides come there for their wedding because I am a planner, and we have spent thousands of dollars with this man and his company. For him to tell me he will not pay for my dress as well as the other girls dresses to get fixed. He over talked me the entire time I was on the phone yelling "That's your opinion about the size". Now please tell me, how is my size my opinion when the dress clearly says a 14 inside and all of my other bridesmaids dresses even from a wedding 3 months ago is a 10? Now I warn you, unless you are looking to feel intimidated, be gipped out of your money, and not be taken care of the owner then this is your place. I normally leave amazing reviews for this place....but this time I'm out of a extra $120.00 to get my entire dress made into a new.

Let's not forget the bride is clearly a size 14/16 in girls and a size 0 in women. And he order her entirely too big. Now she has to pay almost 300.00 for alterations. He said it's our fault because we are this size. And he also said that the junior bridesmaids "looks like she is a size 18". Mind you we are talking about a 12 year old. Who is maybe if maybe a size 12. DO NOT SHOP HERE IF YOU WANT TO LOSE MONEY! P.S. I had to hang up on hi because he just would not allow me to talk and told me my opinion does not matter it's what he puts on paper is what matters. What a joke!

I found my dream dress there. Reasonable in pricing, we also found the bridesmaid dresses there, also reasonable in price. After a few bumps ( picking a dress that does not come in extra length and having to find another for 2 of 4 girls, and loosing my card with girls measurements) dresses were ordered. My dress came in about 3 weeks early and the owner was able to get the Bridesmaid dresses early also due to my father dying of cancer so we could have a small immediate ceremony in a few weeks after he was diagnosed with bone cancer from his colon. Overall the experience with LaMerite was positive. The ladies who help with the dresses (Diane) were very sweet and caring.

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.

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.
