Gail is absolutely amazing. I went with my mom to browse wedding gowns with no intentions of getting a dress and I ended up falling in love with a dress that day- this dress is my ultimate Pinterest dream come to life! Gail made my experience fun and and easy with her calm and gentle personality. She was very patient with me when I had trouble deciding on a color (who knew there are different shades of white- I sure didn't). Both Gail and Liz (another team member at Occasions) let me come to the decision on my own but were able to offer great tips and advise along the way. I couldn't he happier with my decision to my get my dress at occasions, I feel like I've made a great friend in Gail look forward to continuing to work with Gail and her team throughout the rest of my wedding planning process.

Gail was such a sweetheart!!!!! This was the first dress shop I looked at and within an hour I had my dress. I spent WAY under budget. My dress was one they designed. It was comfortable and I could dance in it (we did a choreographed dance). I got so many compliments and I did not spent a fortune on it. I forgot my shoes once at my dress fitting and she let me borrow a similar shoe for the fitting (tailor is across the street). I highly recommend Occasions. There is something for every budget. My mom even found her mother of the bride dress there!

My mother in law spent more on her dress than I spent on my dress, veil, shoes, alterations and additions to my dress combined. It was insane. I'm SO BEYOND THRILLED. I loved my dress so much and it was very meaningful because I was able to add beads from my mother's wedding dress and put my late cousin's initials in blue in the back inside of my dress. The affordability let me be able to do this. YOU MUST check out Occasions!

Gail is the reason why I bought my dress there. Her attention to each customer makes the whole difference! I had 6 months to plan my wedding from the day I got engaged to the day of the wedding, and while most bridal stores wouldn't even allow me to look at options Gail helped me get the dress of my dreams which would arrive in time for my wedding! Very pleased with her.

Occasions Bridal has been amazing to work with for my wedding dress! Gail was SO sweet upon my arrival and made me feel so comfortable. I had a previous experience elsewhere that was not so warm and fuzzy so this was certainly appreciated. While trying on the dresses she had good advice so what would work with my body and made me feel beautiful in all the dresses I tried on. I came back with more family for the 2nd visit and again, Gail was wonderful! I can't wait to continue working with her when my dress comes in!

There are not enough words to truly describe my experience at Occasions Bridal! Gail, Debbie and the other lady that works there are phenomenal! I was not planning to go to their store but after looking on a Saturday without a scheduled appointment and not being able to receive help at Majesty. I called their boutique and Gail told me to come in at that moment. When I arrived there were many girls trying on dresses for prom. Gail immediately greeted us with the sweetest welcome. Once a room was available I began trying on dresses that I selected. Her boutique was the only store I found that had dresses larger than a 12. While trying on dresses, Gail kept checking on me and right when I decided I was about to leave because nothing I selected really looked good on me, Gail encouraged me to try on some dresses I had not chosen. To make a long story short, I found my dress which made a group of ladies cry who were there shopping for prom dresses for their daughters while I had the dress on. Gail's attention coupled with her expertise and professionalism made choosing my wedding dress a memorable and beautiful experience. I'm going to have some alterations done to my dress and she is working with me every step of the way. For me picking my wedding dress was not all about the "posh" experience it was about someone truly listening to what I wanted, working with someone who really showed they cared about me finding a dress without a guarantee if I was going to purchase a dress from there, they weren't concerned about how much time I was there and just being nice. If you are looking for ladies who truly will take a personal interest in you choosing your dress from start to finish, who are the sweetest and most helpful ladies at a boutique and who believes in giving the highest level of customer service, I highly recommend you go to Occasions!

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 absolutely hate leaving a bad review but the only good experience I had at Occasions was actually picking out my dress. For a small boutique they had a nice selection (enough but not too much to overwhelm) and the staff was friendly, helpful, and patient while I made my decision.

Everything went downhill after that. I picked out my dress in late February for my September wedding, and they said they would need to rush order my dress to get it in time (fine). I was planning my wedding long-distance and would need to fly back for my fitting, so I set up an appointment with them in May and called them twice on the phone to confirm the appointment date/time AND to confirm that the dress would indeed be there due to the rush order (the second phone call was a week prior and I was assured the dress was already there).

When I arrived for the fitting, the dress had NOT arrived and they were incredibly unapologetic and unhelpful about it. They looked at their files again and noticed they wrote down the wrong month for the dress to arrive, which they'd failed to notice both times I'd called to confirm its arrival for my appointment. Despite their error in the shipping date AND telling me they had received the dress when they hadn't, they were barely apologetic to me and their way of remedying the situation was to tell me that they would accommodate a last-minute appointment as soon as the dress arrived. When I reminded them that I had flown up for the fitting and would not be able to come in again, they again barely offered any remorse and no reduction in price. When the dress finally came in my mother had to pick it up for me and I had it fitted and tailored elsewhere.

I understand that mistakes happen, but it was their unapologetic attitude in recognizing or attempting to alleviate their mistake that absolutely astounded me. I expected to be treated with more respect and I would not recommend them to anyone.
