I couldn't be happier with my experience at Melange! The dress wasn't one of my priorities for the wedding...in fact, I was seriously considering buying second hand. But since I walk by Melange at least once a month on my way to a nearby shop, I just had to finally go in after I got engaged!
Alisha helped me and couldn't have been sweeter. She actually picked out the dress I will wear for the wedding, after noticing how the styles I picked looked on me and got a sense of my style. Ivana walked me through my first wedding meltdown when I was stressing about dress size (my fault for having big hips), and the size we decided to order was just right, with minimal alterations needed. Sonya is doing the alterations now (I've had 2 fittings) and I have every confidence that the dress will be just right on the big day! She is added faux cap sleeves that will give a great romantic look.
The price for my dress (on sale) was right. There was a plenty big selection of dresses. Found a veil there I like, and also found shoes on sale (they are closing out their inventory of shoes).
I even recommended Melange to a friend of mine, and she just got her dress there as well! Glad I steered her in a good direction.

I had the most amazing time at Melange. I went in thinking I would try a dress on and order one online later. I worked with Alicia and she was great. She told me she wouldn't show me dresses out of my price range because that is an awful thing to do. I would go back in a heartbeat.

I am an older bride and some of the dress shops sort of ignored me but not Melange. I went to the location right before closing and they still made me feel special. They give individual attention and pay attention to every detail. When they did the alterations, they were not happy until they were perfect and did not charge any extra to make it right. Very professional, responsive and had great ideas on how to make you look and feel special. The suggested a dress that I would not have selected but it was perfect and made me feel so special. They were great to work with!

To be honest I'm a very high maintenence and difficult bride. Melange was kind when it came to my high maintenence and found me my dream dress without forcing a sale. I'm on a budget which makes it more difficult to find a "dream dress" but Melange did it! AND were able to get below my Budget! Alterations were a breeze and I'm a very happy bride! I would recommend Melange to any bride! It's a cute boutique also which makes for a fun experience! Melange Is a smaller shop but still has a wide variety of gowns

I had the best experience here. Everyone was so nice and helpful and I loved the "French boutique" atmosphere that envelopes you when you walk into the dressing area to try on the gowns. Ivana, the owner, is amazing and so is the sweet seamstress Brandi. They have beautiful gowns for great prices!

Worst customer experience of my life. After making a mistake with my fiancee's (now wife's) bridesmaids dresses, they offered to give us free alterations to make up for the last minute rush they created. Once it was too late to chance our minds and go elsewhere, they charged full price for the alterations and were extremely rude. When I called and spoke with Alana, I heard things like "I don't have to listen to you" and "I don't want to talk about this any more" less than five minutes into a conversation about our dissatisfaction.

Will ignore you when you make an appointment, don't answer their phone or call back in a timely manner, and are rude, rude, rude. Bait-and-switch at every corner, and expect them to charge you a rush fee no matter how early you place your order with them. Expect a battle if you want a refund. Expect them to make your wedding planning a nightmare and to treat you like dirt.

MAYBE THEY'LL LISTEN TO THIS.

We wanted to use locally owned for the entire event but felt compelled to also look at the chains. Once we got to Melange Bridal, we were done! Elizabeth and Nicole were fabulous. They took such good are of Jessica and ensured her wedding dress was exactly as she wanted. They referred us to Triana Tailors for the alterations and Elizabeth was amazing at what she could do to the bustle and hemline. It was just a wonderful experience all the way around.

Okay, so I'm not one of those people that dreamed about my wedding dress...I've always been into fashion and pride myself on believing I have good fashion taste but this was a whole new ball game! And not to mention VERY overwhelming!!! And most of you know, after you try on a million things, everything starts to look the same! The staff at Mélange really helped me in figuring out my sense of style and gave me their opinion on what they thought might look great and not in a pushy or annoying way!!! And let me tell you, they were spot on!!! I live in Dallas, and went to Austin looking for something different and was very much surprised by the selection they had a Mélange...I mean I got a dress from PARIS people...in AUSTIN!!! Amazing! I loved my dress so much that I also got my bridesmaid dresses from there! And I was told by several people that they were the prettiest bridesmaids dresses they had EVER seen!!! I would definitely recommend this store to anyone!!! Love the staff and appreciated their expertise and professionalism!! Go there if you want great service, a great selection, and if you want the perfect wedding day gown!

After dealing with Melange for the past few summer months leading up to my July wedding, I cannot say I would recommend them to anyone for the following reasons:

1. They forgot to order my bridesmaid dresses on time, so had to rush order them when I called to confirm when they would be in.
2. The dresses arrived 3 weeks later than originally told to us.
3. The staff didn't go pick up the dresses from the mail office after 3 days of them being held there, so the dresses were mailed back to the designer.
4. One dress was the incorrect size upon arrival.
5. Staff NEVER called me back each of the three times they promised they would.
6. After all of this, when we requested a refund at least for the one dress that my mother would have to alter herself because they were so late, we were told they gave no refunds under any circumstances whatsoever.
7. When I read the business contract before ordering the dresses, I saw that no refund was made except by the manager's discretion. When I reread it the second time (post troubles with the company), I found that the contract was completely unethical in that it allowed NO room at all for if Melange itself failed in its responsibilities to the customer. However, there were plenty of charges for the customer if things went wrong... such as being charged for the rush order.

The manager's mother, the owner of the store, finally gave us a refund after realizing that we were at her mercy as far as paying the store for not doing their jobs. We didn't take the refund, though. Just knowing they were finally willing to offer us one was enough to make us feel better about paying for a dress, even with as much trouble as we went through.

Repeat: I would recommend all future brides out there to go elsewhere before signing this silly and unethical business contract with Melange for any bridal purchase you may desire.

Melange Bridal responded with the following comments:

I do apologize for your experience with our salon, and that you fell as though we let you down, I do feel the need though to clarify some of your statements.
1.) We would NEVER have someone pay rush charges on dresses that were not ordered in a promptly manner. We always place orders right away when the final bridesmaid calls in. I believe in your situation we were waiting on your final bridesmaids to call in and place their orders to avoid varying dye lots.
2.) The designer gives us an ESTIMATED ship date of about 8-10 weeks, during high production season dresses could take longer to come in. The ships dates aren't 100% accurate, because these dresses are made in factories over seas. and it also states this in our contract. We always tell brides to allow themselves enough time to prevent any additional stress.
3.) In this unfortunate situation, we had a training UPS driver that came before business hours, we did call UPS to clear this up and had the package overnighted from the designer. We did apologize for this profusely and offered to pay any rush alteration charges because of the delay.
4.) When orders are placed over the phone, we always repeat the order back to the customer, along with the size, and we have the consultant sign off on this. The consultant did repeat the order back with the size and signed stating she did just that, however you insisted that the dress was not ordered int he correct size, so in this situation we did offer a refund for the dress, or to pay for the alteration costs. I notified you regarding this several times, and my calls were not returned.

I cannot stress this enough, with special orders it is the customers responsibility to carefully read over the contract before placing the orders. I think you will see that many Bridal Salons contracts are very similar and that they explain special orders, and the unfortunate issues that sometimes arise. Many of these things were discussed in the contract. However, even with that in place, the Salon and the Owner made exceptions for your bridal party because more than anything we hate to see a bride stressed before what is suppose to be the happiest day of her life. I do apologize for your experience again, and the stress involved. We hope that your wedding day was everything you dreamed, and you had a beautiful day :) . We wish you the best on your new marriage

I enjoyed my experience with Melange Bridal. It is a smaller, more intimate store than some of the larger bridal salons in Austin. They were very friendly and helpful for the most part. I thought they had a great selection of dresses at reasonable prices. I had a few issues in ordering the correct size, but the manager Nicole was able to help me order the right size in the end, so it all worked out. I highly recommend Melange to anyone looking for a beautiful dress! I found the perfect dress there!

Wonderful!
I was a last minute wedding gown shopper...went every where and people were so rude to me -especially one very popular bridal chain.
Someone I worked with told me about Melange Bridal and so I went to check it out...they were so great! The girl that helped me was so sweet and actually recommended I try on something I would not have chosen myself. -It was the dress!
They treated me like an important person and had good prices and quick altering services( had to have my veil made).
Thank you to Melange Bridal for being so personable and kind.
