We purchased our bridesmaid dresses here and couldn't be more happy with the service! Christine and the staff are all extremely helpful and courteous, coordinating bridesmaid dresses for 10 girls, most of whom were from out of state. My bridesmaids all looked stunning in lace Watters dresses, and I've lost count of how many people told me that they were the most beautiful bridesmaid dresses they have ever seen, many guests asking where they were from so that they could buy one themselves!

The shop is in a beautiful old house in Wayland. I have always had a lovely experience booking appointments and having personal attention at my appointment. We also got my mother-in-law's dress and our flower girl dress here - all beautiful and of top quality. They also sell gorgeous wedding dresses. A wonderful place to look for all bridal needs - wedding dress, bridesmaids, mother of the bride/groom, and flower girl!

I loved this boutique. It was a converted victorian home turned into a bridal shop. I felt more comfortable here than at any of the big chain stores. The staff was great and was super respectful of my budget. They had all price points here. The only thing I would be careful of was that they don't do alterations so bank another $600 to spend on alterations with whatever seamstress you think you can trust!

Occasions Bridal Boutique provided the dresses for our recent wedding - it was a same-sex wedding so there were a lot of them too! My partner and I each tried about 3 different salons but both independently settled on Occasions.

The entire staff was so wonderful and easy to work with and made the process of dress shopping fun. The selection was just right and the staff really listened to what you wanted and worked with your style. We also ordered all of our bridesmaids dresses and flower girl dress through Occasions as well and they worked independently with our bridesmaids to collect all of their information which totally removed the stress from us!

The dresses came in a timely manner and their recommendation of a local seamstress was spot on (Sienna right across the street is wonderful!).

Occasions was the first (of about 10) stores where I looked at wedding dresses, and is where I ultimately bought my wedding dress. The store is in a pretty suburb of Boston in a building that looks like a nice home. It looks small but there's actually a pretty wide selection of dresses.

While trying on dresses, of all the places I went, the staff at Occasions was the best at making the process efficient without sacrificing the feeling of being a special bride. The area with the big mirror where my mom and sister waited to see each dress was really pretty.

I found three dresses I loved and came back for a second visit to try them on again. Both times it was easy to call and make an appointment, even on weekends, and both times I was the only bride trying on dresses -- adding to the feeling of personalized service.

The dress was special ordered and arrived right when it was supposed to. Occasions does recommend a nearby tailor, but I can't speak to that as I had my dress altered in another city. Similarly, there were a lot of nice-looking mother-of-the-bride and bridesmaid dresses, but I didn't have a wedding party and my mom got her dress at a department store.

In summary, good dress selection, nice and professional staff, beautiful building in a pretty setting -- definitely highly recommend!

I purchased my wedding dress at Occasions. I had a great experience during my first appointment to try on dresses. It was during a trunk show and even though I didn't end up purchasing a dress by the designer featured in the trunk show, after trying on a dozen dresses the consultant knew exactly what I was looking for in my dress. She pulled a dress from another designer I had never heard of, which was within my budget and it was PERFECT.
However, even though my initial experience was great and I found my perfect dress here, there were some issues I had with them which is why I am not giving them a 5-star review. When I went back to order the dress they INSISTED that I order a size 10 even though I am normally a size 2 in regular clothes. Now I know that bridal sizing is weird but it should not be THAT far off. When the dress came in, it was HUGE. Luckily I was able to take the dress to a great seamstress (I did not use the tailor across the street they recommended because the reviews of that place weren't great). My seamstress had to take the entire dress in by 1-3 inches on both sides, all the way from the top down to my knees. I had lost some weight since ordering it but not that much, maybe 5-10 lbs. The dress was so big, the seamstress thought I had purchased it at a sample sale. Also, during my experiences ordering/purchasing the dress, the receptionist seemed a little snooty, and I never saw the initial consultant who had been so great the first time I came here. We paid for our own wedding and I paid for my own dress so even though my dress was one of the cheaper options at this boutique (under $1800), it was the most expensive purchase from any wedding vendor we had (excluding the reception venue). It would have been nice if they were a little less snooty and had ordered a dress that was actually in my size instead of following a ridiculous sizing chart which I am sure was developed to benefit the wedding seamstress/tailoring industry.

I had a great experience at Occasions. I went there because they carried the line with a dress I liked. It ended up being the one! Occasions is low-key and low-stress. Just the type of experience I was looking for.

They have a well edited collection of gowns which helped the process from being too overwhelming. They even gave me the trunk show price a month in advance! The only drawback was that another girl was trying on dresses at the same time and had brought a large group of family and friends who were pretty vocal in giving me opinions on the dresses I was trying on. One can't really blame the boutique for that though. The payment and pickup process was painless and they have a great seamstress across the street that does all their alterations.

The woman who owns the store is outstanding! She was SO flexible and accommodating. After making an appointment, when you arrive, they are one on one with you. You tell them what you are looking for and she bring EXACTLY that. My mother also found her dress there, unfortunately it was only about 3 weeks before the wedding date. However, they ordered the dress, rushed the order and there was NO extra charge-who does that?
This company is out of this world when it comes to customer service.
