I visited Occasions in Bethel to search for my wedding dress and it was an awful experience from start to finish. Prior to the appointment, I spoke with Gail and gave her a list of dresses I was interested in trying on so that they could be pulled in advance. She assured me that she'd look for the dresses and pull whatever she had in advance. When I arrived, not only did I have to wait 15 minutes for someone to even say "Hello" but I found out that none of the dresses had been pulled and the list hadn't even been looked at. There were four brides crammed into the tiny store and only three employees to take care of them all. I understand a Saturday being a busy day but why take appointments if you're only going to overbook your staff? It was impossible to move around the store, there was nowhere to sit, and the dress selection was extremely limited. The first dress I tried on was not at all the style I was looking for and was poorly made and when I expressed that to the consultant, she proceeded to bring me a second dress that was almost identical. She wasn't listening at all to what I was looking for and kept trying to push the dresses that were deeply discounted. At one point, I was left alone in the dressing room for a full fifteen minutes with no dresses and standing in my underwear! When Gail finally found a moment to help me, I was informed that the store didn't have any of the dresses that I had previously requested to try on. If I had known that from the start, I wouldn't have wasted my time! In an hour and a half in the store, I tried on exactly three dresses. Occasions was completely unprofessional and I left the store very upset. The only bright side was that the experience was so miserable that it lead me to searching for a different bridal shop to go to the next day and that shop turned out to be absolutely wonderful (3 Graces Bridal, Lebanon, NJ). Don't waste your time with Occasions in Bethel. Would not recommend to anyone.

I was very nervous about starting to shop for a dress because I am very indecisive. My experience here was beyond what I expected. I could not be happier with their service and assistance. I felt like the experience was made easy by Gail! Their selection and prices were great and I did not feel overwhelmed when I walked in. I highly recommend Occasions!

I did not think I would find my dress so quick or so easy. But the staff at Occasions were so warm and friendly. After trying on 3 dresses I found the gown of my dreams and it was even better that it was on sale. I even bought my bridesmaids there to look for and try on dresses, and her staff was extremly helpful and professional. Looking forward to my big day now :)

I came to this store looking for a veil. In the beginning of the visit, Gail was extremely helpful and attentive. She was giving me many options and ideas for what she thought would work well. Well....this was for the first 10 minutes, until another bride came in, one that she obviously knew more and wanted to work with more. Maybe because this bride was looking for a dress, and Gail wanted that sale more than mine. I immediately was left fending for myself. When I went to take a picture to show my sister, she said photos are not allowed. Funny since 5 minutes later the "chosen Bride" was able to take a picture of herself in her dress.

Overall, I would not recommend this vendor to anyone. They have nice styles, but the help was less than to be adored. Especially when you are ready to spend over 200 on a veil. If you do go though, hopefully you will be a "favorite" so you actually get the attention you deserve.

GOOD LUCK!!!!

As a very self-conscious bride, working with Gail at Occasions was refreshing. She is genuine, caring, and kind. She really worked to make me feel comfortable, and she seemed just as excited about the dress I picked as I was! I found a dress that was much better in quality and more gorgeous than anything at "the D word," and still more affordable. My dress was available for pick-up more quickly than I anticipated also.
She has a wide range of sizes available.

I found an amazing dress at occasions and truly felt amazing on my wedding day. From the first day I walked in they were courteous and accommodating even when I did not have an appointment. They were able to save the dresses I was interested in to be able to bring back my sister, and I have the worst schedule and they were able to accommodate times that worked for me! They were so helpful suggesting jewelry and veil, and I was able to add a lace jacket to my dress which really completed the look. I am not an emotional person and with Gayle and Occasion's help truly had that bridal moment. They were timely in getting my dress and accessories and even helped my mom (who might be one of the pickiest people I have ever met) find a dress which I honestly thought would take months! I cant thank Gayle and the rest of the staff for an amazing experience! Thank you!

I have known Gail for many years. She and her team are great at finding the right dress for you for the "Occasion". I purchased a dress for my prom from her and recently a dress to wear at my cousin's wedding. When I walked into the shop I didn't really know what I wanted. Gail picked out a dress that she thought would look nice on me. My mom loved it. Honestly I wasn't too over the moon about it myself, but as I walked around at my cousin's reception I truly fell in love with the dress. Thanks Gail for knowing which dress was right for me without me even realizing it! You are the best!

Gail is a family friend so we always knew for my wedding gown we would be taking a trip to occasions. Gail opened her shop up just for us on a sunday- which I know she will do by appointment for regular customers. She really makes you feel like the only bride in the world. She has a great eye for what looks good on a womans body and is open and honest when she feels a girl is going in the wrong direction. Gail also has a seamstress two doors down from her boutique and that is very convenient. I have known Gail for my entire life and I was so happy with my experience at her shop.

I purchased mother of the groom gowns for both my sons' weddings from Gail at Occasions Bridal, and I have been extremely happy with my shopping experience. Gail was very helpful as she is very knowledgeable about style and color and what looks good on you! There is a large selection of dresses and gowns to choose from. It has been such a pleasure to deal with such a delightful lady and to find an ensemble that makes me look and feel so glamorous on such special "occasions!" I highly recommend this shop.

Occasions Bridal is the reason I was able to find my perfect wedding dress. Upon first appointment, Gail was extremely helpful and filled with love not only for her clients but her job. There is no question she loves what she does as it shines through in every interaction we had with her. Gail took time with me and my family and made each of my trips to Occasions one I looked forward to.
I found my wedding gown at Occasions and truly could not have been happier with how beautiful it was. I truly felt like a princess on our wedding day – blushing with compliments from family and guests at what a beautiful wedding gown I had.
I attribute all of that to Gail and her knowledge, expertise and care. The jewelry we picked out at Occasions beautifully complimented the dress and made the “WOW” factor.
Thank you Gail for helping me find a dress more amazing than I ever imagined.

This was the first place I tried on dresses and it turned out to be the only place I needed. Gail was very sweet, helpful, and attentive. When I arrived I was asked to choose from a handful of envelopes and inside were coupons for a certain amount off any dress, which was really a great bonus. Although it was a small shop there were plenty of dresses to choose from. Someone looking for a huge selection might be disappointed but I think it's possible for them to order anything. After finding my perfect dress, we went ahead and ordered it. Perahaps we were too excited about finding the dress but we did not look at the invoice closely enough. The dress was mistakenly ordered in the wrong color (ivory) and we did not find this out until it arrived months later. Gail was very helpful in ordering the dress in the right color and rushing the order for it to arrive in time. Overall I was very happy with the service and the dress!

I had a very positive expierence finding my beautiful dream wedding dress at this store. That all turned into a total disaster when I brought my dress to thier reccomended seamstress across the way...I paid over 200$ for alterations only to have my dress returned to me with not only a huge water stain on the train, but a tear in the bodice of the dress. A true nightmare for a bride less than two weeks before her wedding day. I was never offered any of the money back, and the stain was never completely removed, although no one noticed it on my wedding I knew it was there, and the tear in the bodice is a true disappointment in my pictures.

I was never offered any of the money back, and the stain was never completely removed, although no one noticed it on my wedding I knew it was there, and the tear in the bodice is a true disappointment in my pictures.

Occasions Bridal and Eveningwear responded with the following comments:

I just felt so sad when I read your review. I really wish you had come to the store so we could have taken the spot out of your gown as well as repair the bodice. At Occasions we are always available to our brides and strive to make your wedding gown the most memorable article of clothing your will ever wear. I offer my apologies We were not aware of the problem.

I have nothing but wonderful things to say about Gail and the rest of the staff at Occasions. I found my wedding dress there, and Gail was incredibly responsive and helpful whenever I needed her. I recommended her to my sister for her wedding dress and bridesmaids dresses, in addition to my mom and future mother in law! Gail was just as attentive and helpful to of all of them as well. Wonderful, wonderful experience and customer service!

Gail is well known around Fairfield County for her dresses and her expertise. From picking out my dress to coordinating the colors for my bridesmaids, Gail had one motto: "Whatever you want, we'll make it happen!" I chose to customize the colors of my girls dresses. It's a bit risky and most vendors would shy away from supporting such a decision. Gail very much enjoyed the challenge and praised my creativity. She is the best at what she does and I would recommend her to any bride.

I looked on line at the selection that Occassions had and then made an appointment to try on bridal gowns. The store is quaint with lots of dresses to pull from. My mother found my dress, even though the sample was much too large for me we clamped it on and it was perfect. I was still on the fence but never felt pressured so left to think about it and came back the next morning and ordered it. It was a perfect dress, for a perfect day and I will always love it for that.

I found the dress of my dreams at Occasions. The sales people were very helpful, and the price was wonderful. I ordered in February and was told to expect my dress to be in around June. I wound up being pleasantly surprised because it came in way ahead of schedule - in the middle of April! I was a little bit nervous because alterations aren't done on site, but they have a working relationship with a seamstress a couple of doors down. As it turns out I couldn't have been happier. I tried on a wide price range of dresses at fancy boutiques and inexpensive chain stores. I coudn't imagine getting married in anything other than the dress I got at Occasions.
