Allison was a pleasure to work with! She was very flexible when it came to fitting my 8 bridesmaids and she also altered a short dress for me to wear for my first dance on less than a weeks notice. Allison steamed the dresses beautifully and she hemmed them perfectly. Her measurements were so accurate she did not need to do any body alterations on any of the girls she saw in the shop!

Allison was one of the most enjoyable individuals I have ever worked with. The stress of a wedding can be "challenging" at best and she made every detail easy, simple and there was NEVER any worry on my part. She extremely personable and her attention to even the smallest detail is impecable. I would recommend Maplewood Bridal to each and every bride !

what can I say? I have no words but to mention that Allison nearly ruined my friend's wedding. we were supposed to have our dresses ready at least 2 weeks before the wedding, turns out we had our "final fititng" on a Sunday! (of all days!), stayed with her practically all night just to find out she did not finish the dresses! we were told the dresses were jersey knit but as we try on the dresses and see how it doesn't really fit well on our bodies, etc., we make assumptions that its another type of fabric like spandex or lycra. She must have made about 100 alterations to the dress, but the result was always "we look tacky." The meaning of the word "seamstress" really applies here, because the seam did cause stress! Not only did we waste our time with various visits to her store in NJ (we're all from NY), but she tried to pull a fast one on us by making a dress out of spandex while we were led to believe it was jersey knit. Thank God for another seamstress who saved the day for us (literally up until the day before the wedding)! I don't recommend Allison to anyone- she does come off nice, but anyone who tries to rip off innocent people is evil. We trusted her to make our dresses and she stabbed us in the back

Stay away is my warning to all brides and bridesmaids. Allison appeared to be nice but ended up damaging my bridesmaids dresses. She came recommended by my wedding planner but was a total disappointment. She told us she could do the dresses but ended up not finishing the dresses. We ended up taking the dresses to another seamstress because the week before my wedding, the dresses were not done. They looked the same way as in the first fitting which was a month prior. The hem was wrong and you could see the thread where she tried to fix her mistakes. I asked her to buy Jersey knit and she showed us a sample which we thought was Jersey knit. It turned out to be spandax!!!!! The hooks on the dresses were showing and she did not add a lining to the dress so the bridesmaids felt nude. When we asked her about why the dresses did not fit the bodies well, she claimed they needed to be pressed but she also claimed she had pressed them herself already. She appears nice and seemed like she knows what she is doing but make no mistake unless you actually see one of her dresses finished on a human body, dont even waste your time. You will be sooooo disappointed. She did not handle the situation well when I asked her to refund our money, she dodged communication with me for two weeks. Run away and dont look back!!!! If you dont care about how your dresses look, then come here. Otherwise it is better to buy the dresses off the rack at the shop, then to let Allison make your dress. Dont ruin your day by coming here.

Beware of Allison Teixeira! This woman will look you straight in the eyes and lie to you. She was hired to complete 4 custom bridesmaids dresses and not only did she mislead us by buying the wrong fabric, 4 days before the wedding which was suppose to be the final fitting the dresses weren't done. Rather than come clean and admit that she purchased the wrong fabric and couldn't complete the dress design with the fabric she purchased, she continued to lie and make excuses for why the dresses she told us she can create weren't coming together. We gave her many opportunities to fix the wrong she did with these dresses and she never came clean, instead she kept the money she was paid and never completed the dresses. In the end because good things come to those with a pure heart, another seamstress did in 2 days what Allison couldn't do in 5 months.

The woman I worked with was very nice and friendly, but my dress ended up being a disaster. While I was able to get the dress cheaply because the designer was stopping it, the alterations were shoddily done, and the beading detail work that she was going to fix for me never got finished. I received the dress with rips in the hem, the skirt hadn't been taken up enough, the bustle looked awful, and the dress didn't hang right on my chest. Awful, awful, awful job. She isn't a detail person. It's better to look elsewhere for your dress.

Maplewood Bridal Image is just wonderful to work with! Allison did my makeup, and she even came to my house because I live close by. She was so sweet and great to work with, and my makeup looked beautiful all day.

I shopped for wedding dresses there as well, and they were very pleasant, with a nice selection of gowns. They were willing to order any styles they didn't carry, and though I ultimately bought my gown elsewhere I was very pleased with my experience.

They also altered my wedding dress, and were very quick and reasonably priced.
