Kelly (owner) of Maria of Italy was exceptional to deal with for my wedding. I already had my dress, but she did all of the alterations for it and we purchased our bridesmaid dresses from her shop. She also altered those. She has an infectiously positive attitude and is incredibly talented. She had many suggestions and never wavered in her ability to fix a problem. She was incredibly flexible to schedule appointments with and her staff (Chris) was equally wonderful to deal with. Upbeat and friendly and helpful only begins to describe these two. I would recommend anyone to go to this shop whether they are celebrating a wedding or going to the prom or other formal event.

I purchased my sample dress from Maria. I also added a custom piece to the back and Kelly was so helpful. I think the dress was a little worn, more then I first saw, but overall on my wedding day I left amazing. She does amazing work and is willing to work with the customers. She even held the dress for me until I was ready to pick it up. She helped me out a lot and I am so grateful to have gone to her. She is very good at what she does.

First of all the shop is not owned by "Maria" anymore. It's now owned by a young girl and her sister owns the hair salon below it.
I brought my very expensive gown there after purchasing it elsewhere for fittings so that it would be closer to home. Regretfully my gown was uncomfortable all day because it was too tight where it should have been looser and too baggy where it should have been tighter as it was a mermaid gown. Last fitting I felt rushed and she had to make adjustments where things were just not right. I guess that's what happens when you have hairdressers downstairs do the sewing for you! And the actual seamstress is too busy to do it! ( this came directly from the hairdresser herself! Oops? Right! ) That's not what people are paying for and not right! No choice but to wear it as is. Nice girl- cute shop but would I alter an item here again? Where she cut was in the wrong spot btw! Who cuts a dress up the chest???? Nobody! Must have been the hairdresser! No. I definitely do not recommend a wedding dress being altered. Oh and the earings that I bought there were beautiful and lasted all day:) until I took them off and the post broke. Even with all of this- my day was perfect.

I went to David's Bridal first because I didn't think I was someone who needed special attention and I had a not-so-good experience there. So, when I came to Maria's, the difference was like night and day. I was the only one trying on dresses, so Kelly gave me and my wedding party her full attention. She owns the shop and does a lot of the alterations, so she could quickly and confidently tell me how easy it would be to change things on dresses I didn't like and what the cost would be.

I wound up finding a dress I loved, so I bought it and it came in just within the time frame they said it would be there. They recommended I come in just to make sure its the right size still, and I'm glad I did, because it was made 2" too short! (It wasn't the shops fault, I saw the order form, Kelly ordered the correct length) So, it was sent back and expedited, and I had it back within a few weeks- it fit perfectly and was beautiful.

After that, everything went smoothly. I just needed a few small alterations and the bustle, but everything was done perfectly. Everyone there was a pleasure to work with, and it was really nice to get a friendly smile every time I walked in.

There's not a lot of reasonably priced bridal shops on the south shore. This place is a jewel, I definitely recommend it.

My sister purchased her wedding gown here a few years ago, so I knew I would have good luck when I went there to select my own gown. Everyone there is SUPER friendly and they love to see a familiar face. They have a great selection of affordable designer gowns. The only downside is that Maria (owner and seamstress) is very expensive for alterations. She is VERY talented, but I was a bit shocked when I got my final bill for alterations. I do give her credit though - 2 days before the wedding, my lace dress was about 1-1.5 inches too big!! She was able to work her magic by the time I picked it up the following day.

It was the first and only place I went to look for my dress. And it was a dress I wouldn't have picked for myself ! Just go there and say what you are picturing and then trust :) they'll find you a beautiful perfect dress. I can't tell you how many compliments I got and how many people told me they've never seen a dress like mine before. Go here, no where else !

Thanks to Luigi and Maria at Maria of Italy, I found the dress! It looks absolutely nothing like the dress I had imagined in my head, or even like any of the pictures that I had ripped out of bridal magazines, but it was completely perfect. In fact, it was pretty much the opposite of what I wanted. Don’t be fooled by the size of the shop, they have a great selection and Luigi is very good at what he does. At our first meeting he pulled a ton of dresses, some that I asked for and some that I didn’t ask for, and he was completely honest with me about which ones looked great, good, bad and terrible. When we narrowed it down to four, he waited patiently as I tried them each on a hundred times at our next visit. And when I finally chose her, he and Maria worked patiently with me through several (a lot) of appointments for alterations. Maria is so talented you can’t even tell that my dress was altered. My friends still talk about how amazing my dress was. They even worked with me to customize a veil. And their prices are so reasonable. I know the dress is important, but I just couldn’t imagine spending a ton of money on a dress I would wear for 10 hours. We were pleasantly surprised when we saw the price tag. They also have a great selection of bridesmaid dresses and offer a discount if you get the bridesmaid dresses there as well (both to the bride and the bridesmaids). Needless to say, they made finding all the dresses super easy and were a pleasure to work with. There is a lot of personality in that shop and it made every visit fun!

I had a great experience at Maria's of Italy. The service I received was exceptional, Louie does a great job. Before going to Maria's I had gone to one other bridal shop and felt pressured into buying my dress right then and I was not ready since I had not looked at many dresses. I felt this is a very important decision and wanted to make sure I picked the perfect dress. The next day I went to Maria's and found a great selection of dresses by some of the best known designers. The dresses I tried on fit perfectly and looked absolutely beautiful. The prices are great and I have to admit at first I was not going to go to Maria's because I thought the dresses would cost a fortune and be way out of my budget, but I am so glad I went they are very reasonably priced and my dress is gorgeous. I have yet to have my alterations done but I am definately looking forward to it, I have heard many wonderful things about Maria and the work she does. I would definately recommend going to Maria's... I never once felt pressured or rushed into purchasing a dress, they let you take as much time as you need and are very helpful durning the process of making your very important decision. I can't say enough good about Maria's I truly loved my experience.

Maria and her son Luigi are the best. They are very knowledgeable about dresses and weddings in general. They had some great tips. I would recommend them to anyone getting married. Their dresses are beautiful and reasonably priced. Prices are on par with shops like David's Bridal, but the quality is MUCH better. I loved my gown and felt absolutely gorgeous!

We ended up ordering the bridesmaid dresses from Michael's of Boston (Pembroke, MA) big mistake. After he measured all three of the bridesmaids wrong. He did alterations on 2 of the dresses and completely butchered them. I mean really bad, seams coming undone, holes down the side, puckering hem, rips, used white thread to sew bright blue dress...bad. Anyway when my sister finally gave up and picked up her dress as it was we explained the situation to Maria. Even though it was only days before the wedding, a holiday weekend, and she had family to entertain she agreed to also redo the alterations on my sister's dress. What a difference!

Loved my wedding dress! Maria of Italy is a great little shop in the heart of downtown Plymouth. It's above a hair salon, but don't let that discourage you from going in. They have beautiful bride & bridal party dresses and an extensive collection. They're helpful and patient when you're shopping for "the dress", offering advice and assisting you along the way; not overly pushy at all. Very nice family owned and operated shop!
