UNBELIEVABLE!!!!! How this "upscale" bridal boutique has stayed in business for this many years is ridiculous! From the day after I wrote a check for thousands of dollars for my daughters wedding dress and all 8 of the bridesmaids dresses, Mrs. Ocone and her staff have been NOTHING but rude. Now that they have decided to close their doors, they have completely stopped working with their customers that still have unfinished business with them. They deserve to close!!!! They owe me and several others lots. I hope no one else is going through the same situation that my daughter and her wedding party is.

I would like to start by saying that my wedding dress was stunning once it was finished. It was absolutely goreous and perfectly fitted, and it cost less than $2,000. All of the staff was very courteous and very nice every time I visited the boutique.

For the not as great aspect of it, it took six fittings for them to get the dress to fit right. I had not gained or lost any weight since it was bought. I think their seamstess is a bit swamped because the first couple times we went in there for a "fitting" it looked like nothing had been done. I'm a pretty understanding person, but I literally didn't have my gown ready to wear until the day before my wedding.

The dress turned out great, but I really don't know if I would use them again because of the all the stress over the dress not fitting.

Ocones saved me. With 4 weeks til my wedding and my dress from Terry Costa was ruined...Ocones saved me. I had to buy off the rack since my wedding date was fast approaching, their semstress did an amazing job and the dress looked like it was made for me. They really do go above and beyond to make sure your wedding dress turns out great!

I came to this location with just my mom and we found the dress! It was wonderful and since no one else was in the store, the staff was so helpful! Lydia was the one to help me and she let me go around and see it in all the different lights and even had me in the window display to see it with the sunlight. It was a great experience and they were very helpful about all the steps needed after to get the dress altered. Mary was great at all of the alterations and was very quick to fix anything that we needed.

I found THE DRESS at Ocones after searching all over the metroplex. I gave them my budget and they helped me find the perfect dress that was not outrageously expensive. I loved that they were not pushy and did not try to get me to buy everything to go with my dress. The dress needed some extensive alterations and they made it fit perfectly even though I was losing weight along the way!!

I would NEVER recommend Ocones Bridal Shop to any bride unless she had tried every other shop in the WORLD and had no luck. The do carry beautiful dresses and some at good prices but only go there if you don't mind that they NEVER remember who you are and are very unwilling to go out of their way for you if you have an emergency. I bought 2 bridesmaids dresses and my bridal dress within 3 months of each other and they never recognized my name or face, even when I picked the bridal dress up for the final time!! The only wonderful thing about his place is Mary, the lady who works in the back doing alterations. She is a wonderful seamstress and made my dress work for me even when I found out I was 3 months pregnant and getting too big for it! I found I had to go around the front desk and call or talk to Mary directly and then I FINALLY got the quality customer service I felt ANY bride should deserve! Also, I asked 6 months before the wedding to pay for all of the alterations I would need. They said I could, but when I went into get the fitting done they charged me $184 more for alterations for the hem and bustle which angered me so much because if anything those are the two alterations you know from the beginning of buying a dress that you will need!! I was NOT happy and if I could do it again, I would never have even looked at Ocones. Please only go there as a last resort!!

I used Ocones for my bridesmaid's dresses. When I called to get a price quote, they had the best deal and were very nice. My girl's went in and tried on, called in their measurements, and one being nine months pregnant just called in her actual dress size based on her wedding gown. This store could not get their act together!! I made sure to set up all of the girls names and information. We also paid for half of the girl's dresses. This was way too difficult for the Ocones staff! They over charged, undercharged, and didn't even know who my bridesmaids were half the time. I think I had the same talk with them ten times. The best part was that EVERYdress came in way too big and needed a lot of alterations. When I called about this, Mrs. Ocone was very rude and on the defense. I know that my tone of voice was very kind and I only asked what would need to be done about alterations. She said this was not a custom fit dress and would not fit the girls anyways. May I add this was over a $200 dress. My wedding gown was also not custom fit and it fit me like a glove! All in all, this was a horrible experience and I am heart broken that I will have to remember this when I look back at my wedding. Do not use them! It seems that many people have had the same experience!

They have an amazing selection of dresses but their customer service is not the best. I felt like they were nice to me until I paid for the dress and then everything became a hassle for them. I went in for 3 or 4 fittings and had them steam my dress before my wedding day and on the day of the wedding my dress was very wrinkled and there was even a tear in the lace of my dress that we had to fix with a saftey pin! They were not accommodating at all, when I found bridesmaid dresses I liked they were so rigid about giving me a discount. I had purchased my wedding gown, veil, and slip through them I just thought they would be a little nicer about offering me a discount on the overpriced dresses. Later I found the exact same bridesmaid dress by the same designer at a bridal store in Burleson for $100 less than Ocones was charging me AND they gave me a 10% discount because I was ordering 6 of them:-) If I had to do it all over again I would not have purchased my dress through Ocones they were way too expensive, not professional, and very inflexible.

I loved my dress, but they measured me and then ordered a dress 2 sizes too big. I had to wait 4 and a half months for a dress that had to be taken in two sizes!!! They wanted to make more money off of me for alterations. I took it elsewhere. That was extremely upsetting that they did that. Why measure someone if you aren't going to order their size?
