I had a good experience shopping for a gown at Mestads. There was good variety of dresses in the store and I felt it was organized well. The staff were bubbly and outgoing, particularly my consultant Lyndsie. She was very attentive and interested in the theme of my wedding. She caught on quickly to what I was looking for in a dress. She was not overly pushy and didn't try to sell me on a dress I wasn't sure on, which I greatly appreciated.

After purchasing my dress I discovered Mestads would no longer be carrying that designer due to them not getting dressed in time. After expressing my concern, Mestads moved my wedding date up in the computer a few months to guarantee I would have my dress on time. The also sent me an email the week of our wedding to let me know they were thinking about me and how happy they are for my wedding and my upcoming life with my husband! How sweet!

I am so disappointed in the service this store has provided since day one.
I cannot believe how much this store does not care about their customers! Since day one the service had me questioning my purchase from this location. I ended up purchasing a dress from here knowing that I could get extra lace to be added to my gown. My dress came as expected... but my lace never arrived (Which I will say they told me my lace had arrived with the dress only to be irritated when I arrived) I kept on calling and calling and calling to figure out when and where this lace was. The store would NEVER call me back. I was the one who would initiate the call every time to only be told the same story every time, they were in contact with China and the lace will be here on this date. It never arrived.... several times.
Here I am 7 weeks before my wedding and had to cancel the entire order on my lace because it never arrived and I needed the alterations to be done. When asked if they would refund part of my dress because I wouldn't have ordered it knowing I couldn't have the lace she blew me off and told me she could check some local store that had lace similar to what I was looking for. I told her don't bother... why would I want to put some "close matching" lace on my $1400 wedding gown. If that was the case I would have bought a $300 dress and slapped the lace on it myself.

We were scheduled to rent all the tuxes from Mestads, but I have called to cancel the order and their delivery service. They are not trustworthy, reliable, compassionate or friendly. They are running a terrible show and I will not recommend them to a single person. The least they could do is refund a portion of my dress that I am not remotely satisfied with. I will also be sure to review them on every we

Mestads responded with the following comments:

Thank you so much for your review! We are so sorry that has happened! We completely understand your frustration. We were at the mercy of the bridal company to get the lace in and we did everything we could to get it in for you. The company who manufactures the lace told us that they could get it in and in the end failed to come through. We have been in contact with the company daily and they haven't been able to come through on any of the promised ship dates. The company said they could have it to us within the first week of August however neither of us at this point are confident it would arrive in a timely manner. We are very sorry! We truly do care about each and every bride and groom that comes through our door.

I absolutely loved my dress from Mestads! The staff were very helpful, and really made dress shopping and the dress fitting easier than I thought. I would say that the prices are a bit high, as there was not a lot to choose from in our budget. My dress did come in later than I expected, but I understand that is a bit out of their control. However, their prices for alterations were REALLY high. My alterations cost almost as much as my dress, which I did not expect when I purchased the gown. Since the dress came in late, I felt like I did not have enough time to take the dress somewhere else. That being said, the alterations were done very well. But, I would recommend finding someone else to do the alterations for a much more reasonable price.

We also did tux rental through Mestads. I thought they did a great job helping us make our selections, and doing the fittings.

The people at Mestads were great to work with. My consultant let me look around first as well as put me in a few of her top choices. I found a dress I loved but was able to work with them on the price by buying the dress off the rack. I also got a nice card in the mail a few weeks after I bought my dress thanking me for my visit and wishing me luck with wedding planning. It was a nice gesture that I greatly appreciated!

I'm a CA bride who called Mestad's to inquire about ordering my Amsale bridesmaid's dresses from their store. (I didn't want to pay CA sales tax, which had just been raised to almost 9%.) Not only did I not have to pay tax, but Mestad's had the dresses for $50 less than my local bridal salon. I worked with Grace and she was great! My girls just had to call in with their measurements and Grace took care of everything else. Shipping was $16, which wasn't bad considering we saved about $80 on each dress. The dresses came in really early and in perfect condition!

Mestad's was really helpful and the service was great. The staff there make you feel like you are the only bride in the world! They had a ton of different selections to choose from, and in all price ranges which was really nice. Not only did they have a number of designer lines, they also had bridal accessoriesfor bridesmaids too! I found the dress of my dreams here and I was so glad we didn't have to travel to the cities to look for further selection.
