I had a good experience when I went dress shopping here. Kristina and Kelly were both in the shop and helped select a variety of dresses that matched my criteria. When I came back to get my measurements done to have the dress custom cut, it seemed a little rushed, and when the dress arrived it just barely hit the floor (I was wearing 2.5" heeled booties when I got my measurements which makes me think the measurement wasn't done correctly, so in hindsight I guess I should have checked the measurements myself?). The next series of appointments in the weeks leading up to my wedding were somewhat stressful -- Kelly's shtick is that she is "brutally honest" and she told me repeatedly that shoes I was bringing to the shop and trying on above a 2" heel didn't look good. I wasn't planning to wear flats on my wedding day, so this part was annoying.
I ended up wearing 3" heels on my wedding day and the length was a non-issue. I loved the dress and Kelly's alterations (cups, bustle, taking out some of the ribbing) were good, but the length issue made this a stressful situation.

I came here initially to try on wedding dresses and didn’t find anything I liked but thought Kelly was so sweet so I decided that I would bring my dress here to get altered instead. I could not have made a worse mistake. I had to find a last minute tailor (the week of the 4th of July) and pay her $350 to fix my dress on top of the $300+ I paid Maria of Italy. Kelly called me the day before my final dress fitting and asked to cancel the appointment because she had a personal matter--she asked if we could switch the appointment to the following week. I was a little uneasy about this because it only left me with a week before the wedding but agreed to it when she assured me that if any last minute alternations needed to be done she would do them within a day. When I came to pick up my dress it didn’t even look finished. The cups were barely sewn in (one was hanging off), the wrong buttons were sewn onto the back, and the bottom was only tacked up--not professionally hemmed. I asked her to fix it and she agreed to have it ready by the next day. When I came to pick up the dress the following day, the new buttons were not even sewn on in a straight line, and the cups were still barely sewn in. I spent all day (5 days before my wedding) calling around trying to find another tailor and finally found one that was willing to work over the weekend to help me. When I brought the dress in to her and tried it on she said “Who did this to your dress?!? This is horrible!!”. She said that not only did Kelly not hem it correctly (I found out it was also 3 inches too long in the front), but that when I leaned backwards I would have been flashing people, so she had to redo the whole top. She was floored that the cups hadn’t been sewn into the dress so she fixed that also. The new tailor also had to replace all of the buttons as the ones Kelly put on were more like beads. I was so sad because this was my dream dress and I felt like Kelly didn’t put any care or time into it at all.

We came to Maria's as Plymouth was a good half way point for all the girls. I was so glad that we came here. They have a great assortment of dresses for all shapes and sizes and very reasonable to. Kristina was a great consultant, so very helpful, and with her help everyone was happy. Kelly who is the owner and seamstress is friendly and has alot of talent. She redesigned my MOH dress, and so many people commented on her dress as well as the girls. The cost of alteration was very reasonable. I highly recommend coming to Maria's, for Bridal or bridesmaids, Mother of the bride/groom, flower girls or etc.. Anyone who walks away from Maria's unhappy, wouldn't be happy anyplace.

Warning!! DO NOT get your dress altered here. I was under the impression that Kelly the seamstress knew what she was doing because she also owns the shop. I was very very wrong. I was left with a dress 3 days before my wedding that did not fit and the boobs were uneven and lumpy. The dresss was completely disfiguring! I had to buy a new dress off the rack from David's bridal the day before because no one could fix her terrible work in time. Do not go here!

I bought my wedding dress from Kelly and the team at Maria of Italy in Plymouth. My MOH's friend had purchased her dress there under the previous ownership. I am so glad I came here!! Kelly and her team are SO accommodating, very responsive and overall just a joy to work with. I can't tell you how many times I called those poor girls at the salon, and they were always SO sweet and helpful. My bridesmaids needed last minute alterations to their dresses, and Kelly agreed to help even though her own wedding was right around the corner. It felt like a good friend doing me a favor. I am SO SO happy I got my dress here!!! Thanks so much ladies!!

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.
