Mei's Bridal was recommended to me by a friend when I was unhappy with the alterations department at the bridal boutique where I purchased my dress. Mei did a beautiful job and the cost was half as much as I was quoted elsewhere.

Found my Chinese wedding gown! It was more than I imagined. The ladies there were very helpful and I appreciated their patience in helping me select the gown. I tried on SIX!! The first four were my own selection and didn't really look up to par for a wedding. The last two were more than I had budgeted but it was just what I was looking for. Since the wedding is for February, we asked if she has a shawl of sorts. There was two both of faux fur and I was able to purchase it for a low price. (I later compared the prices to others online, it was cheaper than those listed) I will be returning in January for another fitting and the alterations. It's included.

I am so happy that I found Mei’s Bridal…and it was completely by accident. I was interested in a specific designers line and was out shopping with my mother that day at another salon. After no luck I did a quick search to see if anyone nearby carried the line. Just 5 miles down the road was Mei’s. We walked in and was greeted by the entire family! They had a great selection, but luckily for me they had a sample dress never worn, never tried on in my size! It was from the previous season so they no longer would make it. They offered a great discount and I got to carry my dress out of the store that day!

The owner of the store and her daughter were helpful and attentive and explained how the alterations would be done. Luckily for me they were very minimal, I had just two fittings and both were easy to schedule and very well organized. I never once had any issues. I loved the fact that the moment you walk in the store the dress is there waiting for you to try on.

While I won’t be looking for another wedding dress, I will definitely be back for tailoring – perfection! I was so pleased. I highly recommend using Mei’s. Thank you again for helping make my wedding day so special!

Found the perfect Chinese dress here! They seemed a bit disorganized but in the end my alterations turned out very nice.

I had a great experience getting my wedding dress altered at Mei's. I did not purchase it there, but they did a fabulous job knowing exactly where the dress needed to be altered. I had the dress hemmed (I didn't think it needed to be hemmed but I'm SO glad I got it hemmed), taken in on the sides, cups added to the bust, and extra support up-top. When I went back for my second fitting, it was amazing how much better it looked and felt. In that fitting, however, I realized that when I raised my arms really high in the air, the dress fell (due to how heavy it was), exposing parts I didn't want exposed:) They knew exactly what to do, and when I came in for my final fitting, it was perfect.

Only cons were that it's hard to understand them at times (but they know what they are doing), and I didn't feel like my dress was perfectly steamed when I picked it up - not a big deal, though.

Mei's has beautiful wedding gowns and also traditional Chinese dresses. It was a one-stop shop for me since I wanted to buy a western-style wedding dress and also a traditional Chinese dress for my wedding. The owner of the store and her daughter were helpful and attentive and explained how the alterations would be done. I have one more final fitting before the wedding -- and am coming from out-of-state, and they assured me that if any issues arose during my final fitting, they could accommodate me.

I also thought that their prices were more reasonable than other places including department stores and boutiques. There are some places where you can't get wedding dresses under $1,000, but at Mei's the dresses seemed very high quality, but also very reasonably priced.

I went to Mei's Bridal & Alteration with a group of my friends (bride, bridesmaids, and other attending guests) to buy our dresses and get them altered. The bride had purchased 2 dresses somewhere else, however she had both dresses altered at this shop. First, one of her appointments ran over time cutting into our time and we waited for about an hour then she asked for us to come back in another half hour. So we wasted 1.5 hours doing nothing because she couldn't get her earlier appointment out in time. The fitting and the alteration process was an ok experience, but the biggest problem occurred when the bride's mother went to pick up her dresses. Each person who bought and/or altered their dress were individually responsible for the payment of their own dress. Each person gave Mei their contact information and deposit so that the bride would not be responsible for any other payments, but her own. One of the guests informed Mei that her schedule was very busy and she was unsure when she would be able to come in to take care of her payment, but assured that the payment would obviously be made before the wedding so that she can pick up her dress in time. We are 4 days away from the wedding and Mei decides to hold the bride's dresses hostage until the last payment was made for the last dress. As I mentioned, each person who bought and altered their dress made their own arrangements with Mei so the bride was not responsible for any other dresses, but her own. The bride's dresses were paid for, the bridesmaids dresses were paid for, but Mei still refused to hand over the bride's dresses after we've given her over $1,000 worth of business. As you can imagine the bride was extremely upset and already stressed out leading up to the day of her wedding. This situation could have been handled better and Mei should have contacted that person directly rather than upsetting and involving the bride. She was extremely unprofessional and so difficult to work with.

Mei's did the alterations on my jr. bridesmaid's dress. The experience was just kind of neutral. They did a fine job, and I'll use them again, but I didn't get a warm-and-fuzzy feel from them, if you know what I mean. It was a big, big deal to me to see my little one all dressed up, I would've like if they'd made a little to-do about how beautiful she looked, so grown-up, all that. I kind of just felt rushed, instead. They had missed a part when they steamed the dress, so I asked them to fix that and they did, but no apology was offered. But in the end all summed-up, the work was good, so I guess that is what matters most. Also, they had a good selection of dresses there .... I had already bought mine before going there, but I'd recommend checking it out if you are looking for bridesmaids dresses or formal party dresses (they have a collection of Asian-themed dresses amongst others).

I knew there was something wrong with the dress I bought from a different store, but I couldn't put my finger on it. I went to Mei's Bridal even though the hem and bust fit perfectly -- I thought that all I needed was a bustle. Without saying much, she carefully pulled in several inches of fabric on either side of my hips and pinned it down. Sure, why not? A few months later, I came back for my first fitting and wow ... taking in the hips made a world of difference! My husband said I was grinning ear to ear leaving the store. The bustle was very well-hidden and held up through a lot of hopping and dancing. She does great work, the price was much less than the store I bought it from, and I wouldn't hesitate to go back again!
