I am in the process of losing weight and had lost about 75 lbs. when I started to shop, which was 2 months before my stepdaughter's wedding. I wanted to lose as much as I could first. I went to Letitia's and tried on 2 gowns, that was it. I bought the second one and it had to be made for me. Ruthie and her staff were fabulous! My gown was ordered with a rush delivery, and it came in on time. I have lost more weight, at 87 lbs. now, and the gown was altered so it fits me perfectly! I picked it up today, and I'm beyond thrilled!!! The neckline was changed at my request also. All done over the weekend! Thank you, Ruthie! I thought I was going to have a difficult time getting something to wear, and you made my experience a wonderful one!!!

How to do i even begin?! NIGHTMARE: ALL BRIDES AND BRIDESMAIDS STAY AWAY!!!!! I had a total of 8 bridesmaids and 2 flower girls. My junior bridesmaids are both the same age however they are very different in sizes. I was very concerned about finding the right dresses for my junior bridesmaids because of the different sizes. I brought in my girls to Letitia's and the dress was decided upon and measurements were taken. I wanted to double check the sizes before we left and that was when the clerk at the counter said based on the measurements she said, "oh wait, based on the measurements one of the girls will not fit the flower girl dress..." Please keep in mind that I was ready to put down a deposit for BOTH GIRLS. I was very upset by the fact that I was placing a deposit that is non-refundable for a dress they would have ordered and it would not have fit the girl. I took back the money and went to another bridal shop. That was strike one.

Majority of my bridesmaids did not get measured, but there were 3 bridesmaids who got measured and placed their non-refundable deposits and it was too late to back out for them. We all know that dresses for bridesmaids run small, and everyone orders a size up but what happened next was incredulous. When the dresses came in, each of the three girls were listed as a 20. The sizes for these girls were sizes 12, and two 14s....but She kept referring to the designers chart sizes but the other 6 bridesmaids who went to a different shop did not get a size 20 and they were also similar in size with the three other girls. I was really appalled. When i went to the dress shop to speak to the owner regarding the incident she was abrasive and rude. she asked, "Are you going to get the alterations here or not?", I replied, " will it be free of charge?" She scoffed at me and replied, "You think my girls work for free?!". We took the dresses elsewhere for alterations and the girls were charged $65.00 at local seamstress' dry cleaners.

My experience started out nice, Ruthie was helpful and appeared knowlegdable. Everything seemed to be going well, dresses were selected and measurements were taken. Then the first diaster happened, I was called and told every bridesmaid would be charged an additional $50..00 because Ruthie chose not to except the payment of one of the bridesmaids, four months before the wedding. I was never informed in writing or verbally of a due date or of a rush fee charge until it was already too late. I knew this was unfair for my 6 bridemaids who were paying over 200 dollars for thier dresses already. When I called to understand why I was not told of this before this is what was stated condescendingly, " at the end of the day this is how we do things, and every bridal company works like that" and I responded "well forgive me for not knowing how your business runs, and for never being married." Then the next diaster. The bridal party and I did not want to have our alterations done there, because our trust in them was broken, when the dresses arrived I went to pick them up and every dress was 2-4 sizes to big(although they took their exact measurements). Mine was 7 inches to short, its obvious they ordered the dresses that way so we would all have to use their alteration services. I had to have 7 inces of fabric added to my already over a thousand dollar dress, plus regualr alterations. I'm sure that this is not "how all bridal companies work". I do not reccomend Letitia's Bridal because they did everything they could to get more money out of the thousands of dollars we already spent there.

I pride myself on knowing all "the places" to go for most things and I still cannot believe I just discovered Letitia's only a couple of months ago! Everything about this salon is AMAZING! The dress assortment is very diverse and they offer style and elegance in every price range.
Ruthie, the owner, is AWESOME. Love her! She is very frank, direct and knows what looks good on people. It was very easy for me to trust her imediately. Laura was a doll and very good with followup calls at Ruthie's request. The seamstress is very talented and quick! I was shopping for mother of Bar Mitzvah dress and couldn't find anything I liked at other shops. I came to Letitia's and had 5 dresses I liked and almost had to do a coin toss for final decision on top 2 dresses. I came to them late in the game but fortunately was able to get rush delivery for the dress to arrive the week of the Bar Mitzvah. Ruthie monitored the production with the manufacturer and the sg and sure enough it arrived the day it was promised. She had the seamstress do alterations that same day and woila! I brought the dress home the very next day all ready to wear this weekend! I love when you come across a business so customer service oriented and now I just want to shout it to the world for every bride, bridesmaid, flowergirl, mother of the bride, Bat Mitzvah, Bat mitzvah mother and anyone attending a black tie event-----GO TO LETITIA'S!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Where do I start....... I went to many different places to look for wedding dresses. From NYC to New Jersey.
You can imagine my surprise when I found one close to me with the dress I was looking for and reasonably priced. Ruth was my consultant and helped me along every step of the way from finding the dress to customizing it to what I wanted. I am not a typical bride so I was very specific as to what I wanted and she made it happen for me! I was so happy with the service and quality that I recommended my sister and sister in law there , whom BOTH ended up getting wedding dresses from her and bridesmaid dresses!
My dress turned out beautiful and exactly how I envisioned it! Alterations were so simple and no problems.
Ruth your professionalism and expertise was greatly appreciated.
You don't have to ask me if I would recommend this vendor because I already did twice with perfect results!

I went to Letitia's when I got engaged last march to look at a dress I had seen in a magazine. When I looked at the dress in person, I loved it but because I am very pear shaped, I was afraid I would not like the dress on. This was in MARCH 2012, I t hen went back in December of 2012 when it was more realistic to look for wedding dressed for a September 2013 wedding and again I was drawn to seeing how that dress would look on. Ruthie was so patient and helpful with everything. When I put the dress on, it was too small but she assured me that it would look absolutely perfect on, and showed me a million things that would throw me off because it was too small. The price of the dress was pricey, but no more expensive than ANY other bridal store that could order it, and so in essence, the amazing customer service was free of charge! I ordered my dress somewhat blindly not having been able to really see the fit on my body, but I trusted Ruth and her experience. When my dress finally came in, I brought my sisters and my MOH and simultaneously their jaws dropped. I was just as in love with the dress on myself as I was on the model in the magazine and she was clearly much smaller than I was. I appreciated that Ruth took into consideration what I loved and helped me to see beyond the 2 size too small dress to order it for myself. There was much more to the story though. Ruth also worked with several other brides that I was friends with or related too and knew our family dynamic quite well, she accommodated and even made sure to give me ample visits for all of my estranged family to come see the dress, without a thought. She dressed and undressed me as many times as I asked so that anyone I wanted to see the dress could see it just the same every time. Ruth really made me feel good about myself and made it a personal connection. On my wedding day every person had great things to say about my dress, so thanks Ruthie for seeing what I couldn't!

Letitia's was an amazing find and I can't say enough about Ruthie...love her!!

After shopping around for a wedding dress and coming up with nothing I loved, I wanted to through in the towel and take a break from the overwhelming experience... but decided to follow my mother-in-laws recommendation and try Letitia's and boy am I glad I did!

From the minute we walked in we were greeted with smiling faces. I was fortunate enough to work with Ruthie... she immediately got a feel for what I was looking for or what I thought I wanted. But after trying on a few dresses she knew we were headed in the wrong direction so she removed all of the dresses we had agreed I would try on and went on a search for a specific dress she had in mind. I though I wanted something simple yet classic, but turns out Ruthie knew me better... she picked out a champagne colored wow sparkly dress that had my name written all over it. I immediately fell in love with it! Thanks to her I had the dress of my dreams at an incredibly reasonable cost!!! I am recommending Letitia's to everyone!

It took me less than 20 minutes for me to find my dress. I had been to 4 different bridal boutiques and had tried on at least 30 different dresses. At Letitia's I tried on 2. I remember going in on my birthday and I spoke to Ruthie and described to her the type of style of dress I wanted. The first dress was a fail but the second dress was THE DRESS for ME!!! She had been in the business a long time and she told me that that was the dress for me and she was right. It fit me perfectly and barely any alterations needed to be done. She even did something special to my bustle. I loved my dress and every time I tried it on I felt like a queen and the day of my wedding was more than I could have asked for. Thank you Ruthie for knowing what you are doing. The other shops just wanted the sale.

Ruthie is incredibly accommodating and flexible. She knew exactly what dresses would look good on my body. Bought the 3rd one I tried on. She also dressed my mother and bridesmaids. Everyone thought she was fabulous. Have been in 2 weddings since and they both chose Letitia's for the wedding party.
