Choosing Poffie Girls as wedding central for Amanda's dress, bridesmaid dresses and Mother of the Bride Dress and was the perfect choice! The wedding dress experience was so wonderful and Renee was so friendly and helpful! Amanda chose the 9th dress she tried on. A beautiful blush David Tutera dress full of sparkle and magic!! All 5 bridesmaid dresses were purchased here also. Renee again came to the rescue when it came time to order the Mother of the Bride dress and went way beyond the call of duty!!
When it came time for alterations they were done professionally and with perfection in mind. It was an amazing experience all the way around! Highly recommend Poffie Girls to anyone looking for a stress free wedding experience.

Loved my bridal experience at Poffie Girls! It was recommended to me by my cousin who also bought her dress there! I originally went to browse through the Maggie Sottero trunk show. My mom picked out a David Tutera and was dying for me to try it on! I was crying before I stepped out of dressing room. The whole experience was magical. She put the veil on and it was done! Overall, all the women were so helpful and made the purchasing process so much easier! Even my alterations and pick up was a smooth process! They have alot of options to choose from. I would highly recommend them for your wedding dress needs!!

I bought my wedding dress from Poffie Girls and couldn't be happier with the personal service I got! I worked with Mireya and she was so patient and understanding. The day I bought my dress, we kept the employees 30 minutes late, but they were not rushing us out or forcing me to decide before I was ready. They let us take pictures, hold a bouquet, and walk around the fitting room area with dimmed lights to see what the dress would look like in "real life lighting." I got a beautiful gown for much less than I expected to pay! I plan on having my alterations done there as well as buying bridesmaid dresses! I am so thrilled with the entire experience!

I received my wedding gown from Poffie Girls during a Brides Across America event. Because my fiance was deployed overseas, I received my gown for free and it was such a blessing! I was very pleased with the service; the sales associates were very sweet and helpful. I am so glad that Poffie Girls supports our military!

After searching all over Charlotte for a wedding dress we had a friend suggest Poffie Girls. The staff is helpful and makes you feel like you are their only client. Vangie was my daughter's consultant and she knew exactly what to find for her. My daughter thought she knew what she wanted but Vangie pulled the perfect dress for her and my daughter was surprised because it was not what she expected. It was perfect and she looked stunning on her wedding day! Thank you Poffie Girls.

I cannot express my gratitude enough to Poffie Girls - I got engaged soon after returning from deployment. My good friend told me about Brides Across America and I attended the event at Poffie Girls. The staff at Poffie were welcoming, sweet and attentive. I felt like a princess surrounded by 3-4 staff members helping me in/out of dresses and accessories. I found the perfect gown - thank you to Poffie and the staff of Poffie Girls for participating in such a great event with Brides Across America. I don't think you realize how much it means to come home from a stressful environment having been away from family and friends - to receive recognition from PG and BOA and be treated like a bridal princess was the most wonderful experience. Thank you! I highly recommend PG to any bride - you will not only find the perfect gown but the staff there will ensure that it is a wonderful experience finding it!!

I had an amazing experience at Poffie Girls! Vangie was amazing and helped me find the dress I fell in love with. All the staff was so friendly and Vangie also helped us find my Bridal Party's dresses as well! Vangie was patient and kept pulling dresses for me to try on until I fell in love with a David Tutera Dress. Every time I had to visit the store I had great service. Alterations department was friendly and everything went so smoothly. I was measured perfectly so I did not have to have very my alterations done, except for the top of my dress, and my second fitting everything was perfect! I recommend Poffie Girls for anyone who wants a great experience for yourself as well as having your family join!!

The ladies at Poffie Girls were so sweet. I had the dress I wanted in mind when I showed up there. I tried it on, said I want it - and walked out with a purchased dress. Not all women will be able to do that, but I had searched and searched for a dress and that is the one I seen online that I compared all the dresses too. I live about 2 hours away and the closet place to me that had this dress big enough for me to actually try on! All other places closet to me were a size 6! I am a size 12-14! When I showed up that weekend it happened to be a Maggie Sottero Trunk show and I got an extra 10% off, which was awesome. My dress came in about 4 weeks before planned which was a HUGE weight lifted. When I came in for alterations they were very helpful since I was 2 hours away they told me exactly what to do and helped me get my dress altered and in my hands within a week and a half after it arrived back at the store. I would highly recommend this locally owned and operated shop! MUCH better than those big box stores that has the same boring dresses in them! :) You get treated like the princess you are there.

The staff at Poffie Girls were great to work with. I made my appointment and when I arrived they were attentive to me and my family. When I gave them an idea of my dream dress they were able to pull samples that matched what I wanted and in my budget. The staff were so friendly and made me comfortable as I tried on dresses. I ended up purchasing my dress off the rack and did not have alterations done at the store. Overall a great experience.

This dress boutique is PERFECT! For brides who want to avoid David's Bridal and larger scale dress shops- this is the place to go!
Their building is so quaint and inviting. The staff were fantastic. Each time I visited, I was made to feel so special and every consultant and seamstress I worked with was always warm and helpful.

They have a great selection of dresses - for all budgets. When my mother and I told our consultant our budget, she honored it completely, but also gave me lower price options as well. She was looking for dresses that I would like, and wasn't concerned with finding a large price tag to sell me. I ended up buying a dress that was much lower than I expected, and I really appreciate the focus on the customer, not the sale.

Their jewelry, shoes and cocktail dress selections are also great.

This boutique should not be skipped for brides searching for a more personalized, but affordable dress shopping experience.

Elaine at Poffie Girls was without a doubt the best consult we had during the search for my dress. She was pleasant, listened to what I was looking for, made sure it was what I wanted and not what others were steering me towards. And at the end of the day I decided to drive the extra miles to Poffie Girls to purchase my dress versus a closer shop. And it was all due to Elaine! I couldn't have purchased a dress from anyone other than her - she definitely provided us with the best service! I love my dress and it was perfect on my wedding day! I would suggest anyone searching for the perfect dress to give Poffie Girls a try, even if you don't find your dress there you'll at least be greeted with quality service!

I could not imagine finding my wedding dress anywhere else. The staff at Poffie Girls is simply great. I found my dress there and they did my alterations as well. The alterations department did a fabulous job on my dress. Then... less than a week before my wedding, I broke my foot. I was crushed! My dress was hemmed 4" longer because of my 4" heels. I called Tuesday morning in tears and they had me come down and get the dress fixed. The entire staff was there for me and they did everything to calm me. Less than 2 days later, my dress was the perfect length! I highly doubt I would have gotten such personalized attention from anywhere else. Thanks Poffie Girls....you seriously made our wedding day wonderful!

The only place I would recommend for a dress! I live in Charlotte and was getting married in Charleston, I wanted a simple dress... went to several places in Charlotte, nobody would listen to me.. kept bringing me BIG dresses. I wanted a long bridesmaid style dress in white (for a destination). I made an appointment with Maraya and she worked with me, patiently and with so much energy for 3 hours! I had my MOH join me to see the dress and order the bridesmaid dresses. Everything arrived in less than the quoted time! I had 4 girls in the wedding and their dresses fit like a glove on all of them!!! They took the time to even add straps to a couple so that they would be more comfortable. On Wednesday, the day before heading down to Charleston, my MOH tried on her dress and it was too big - she took it to Poffie Girls and they took it up within the hour on the same day! I highly recommend Poffie Girls! They were unbelievable! Service means so much!!!

I am the mother of the bride and just purchased a wedding dress for my daughter from Poffie Girls. They were very helpful, kind, professional, patient, and willing to do everything possible to help my daughter find the perfect dress. This is actually my 2nd dress purchased from Poffie Girls (my 1st daughter found her perfect dress here also). This is a special time for a bride and Poffie Girls goes that extra mile in seeing that all the brides needs are met. Definitely recommend Poffie Girls. Beautiful shop too!!

I had the perfect wedding from the beginning to the end. The beginning was Poffie Girls. I have referred many of my friends to Poffie Girls over the years, and when it was my turn, I knew exactly where to start. I love Poffie Girls. First, Poffie Girls has a semi-closed inventory, which means when you walk in the store you are not overwhelmed by dresses. They have plenty of dresses on their showroom floor to look through, but the bulk of their dresses are in their storeroom. From the second you walk into Poffie Girls, you know it is going to be a great experience because you are assigned a consultant who is with you from beginning to end. Sara was my consultant and she was fabulous. Second, your consultant starts by asking you what you want out of a wedding dress and then how much you want to spend. One of the worst things is falling in love with a dress that you cannot afford. You see it happen all the time on "Say Yes to the Dress." The consultant does not pull any dresses you cannot afford. She will start you out with about 5 dresses and will keep trying to you find the right one. The dress I wore was a dress that I would have never picked out for myself, but that is the beauty of working with an experience consultant, she knows what looks good . . . and she made me look amazing! Third, your consultant will help you with everything else . . . from bridesmaid dresses to tuxedos to flower girl dresses to accessories! Poffie Girls can do it all!

I bought my wedding dress from Poffie Girls for my wedding this past May. Poffie Girls made me feel like a princess when I was there. I would recommend it to anyone and will take my engaged friends there to have the full experience of wedding gown shopping. The lights were dimmed as I walked out of the dressing room with romantic music playing and lights. It was so much fun! My dress was perfect and on sale, I was wayyyy under budget.

I cannot say enough about Poffie Girls. My bridal consultant, Sarah, listened to what I wanted and delivered. She stayed within my budget and I ended up buying the second dress I tried on all because she listened to me. She did not try to push dresses on my that were outside my price range and even called to follow up right before my wedding to make sure everything was acceptable. I was highly impressed with my experience and can't say enough.

The ladies at Poffie Girls were so kind and did fabulous work! I purchased my Watters dress and my hand-beaded monogrammed floor-length veil (pretty much my favorite thing ever!!) and blusher at their store. The service when picking out my gown was great and it arrived rather quickly once it was ordered. The seamstresses were amazing at my alterations as well. I would recommend Poffie Girls to anyone in the Gastonia/Charlotte NC area!

I visited Poffie Girls after seeing the dress I absolutely had to have online, and found them as a vendor. It was completely random, but I like to think it was fate! The sales team was exceptional, and they even indulged me as I tried on 20 dresses, just to make sure that the one I went there for was the one (which it was). I recieved a hand-written thank you note after we purchased the dress, a reminder to have my dress steamed, and even a follow-up call after the ceremony to wish me well. The setting is very relaxing and they really work with the bride to make sure she gets the dress that not only fits her style, but also her budget.

However, I would recommend not using their seamstress. I found her very unpleasant and chose to go elsewhere to have my final fittings. But I wouldn't let her sour personality sour my entire experience. The rest of the staff is excpetional.

What a great place to find my dress! They showed me at least 20 dresses! Even though I found "the dress" after trying 3 on, they wanted to make sure that I found the perfect dress. I was able to dress my entire wedding party there and my mom found her dress. When my dress came in with a hole, they fixed it right away so I didn't have to worry about anything. Wonderful service and I could not have felt prettier on my day!

I would definitely recommend Poffie Girls to anyone looking for their dream wedding gown. This was by far the best bridal shop that I visited. The sales people were very helpful and not pretentious. They have all types of dresses. The shop is very comfortable and they allowed me to try on as many dresses as I wanted. Many stores try to limit the number of dresses that you try on. Also, when I found "the one", they allowed to take pictures with my own camera and gave me the designer and name of the dress. A lot of stores won't do this because they fear that you will try to find the dress online for a cheaper price. Although it was a little bit of a drive from Charlotte, NC, it was definitely worth it.

I bought my wedding gown from Poffie Girls on a referral from a co-worker. I was on a very tight deadline and actually ended up wearing a dress that was on one of their manequins. With a few slight alterations it was a perfect fit. I will say the atlerations were a little pricey but I think that's pretty much the norm for wedding dresses. I also bought my shoes and earrings here. I felt like a princess on my wedding day! Another thing you should know is that they are EXTREMELY busy on the weekends so be prepared to wait a bit. It really is worth the wait and the people that work there are very kind and really take their time in helping you find "the" dress.

I purchased my wedding gown from Poffie Girls after going to several other local Charlotte vendors first. This was the first place where I didn't feel judged for wanting to spend less than $1000 on a wedding gown. When you have to pay for these things yourself, you need to watch your budget!! The shop is in an adorable house, and the ladies there took great care of me! My mom, sister, and I were about to go into the back and look through the racks of dresses alongside the lady assisting, and we tried on a BUNCH of gowns. I had the dream 'bride' moment when I put on my Mori Lee gown and just fell in love. We had a great experience overall at Poffie Girls. They give you one free pressing with your gown purchase, and are very flexible with the dates and making sure they provide great service.

My bridal consultant, Karen, worked with me on the first day I visited the store (on a whim, I didn't have an appointment). She was awesome, and though they were busy, she made time to help me try on 3 different dresses - one of them, a Maggie Sottero, fit almost perfectly and I knew it was "the dress" as soon as I saw it in the full length mirror. Karen held the dress overnight, so that I could have my maid of honor go back with me the next day to try it on again (when we had an appointment and more time, and could speak with the seamstress about alterations). Karen was a pleasure to work with, and I ended up getting my shoes, the dress, alterations, and my veil all for about $800-900 total.

I highly recommend the shop - they carry a variety of designer dresses at affordable prices, and their entire staff is knowledgeable and helpful, and very professional.

I bought my wedding dress at Poffie Girls, and I had a great experience while trying on dresses. They have a great selection. The only problems I had were during alterations. They had a hard time at first figuring out how to do the bustle I wanted, but they were will to continue working on it until they got it right. I didn't spend much on alterations, and they did a lot - the bustle, making the dress two sizes smaller, and re-doing much of the beading. Overall, I was happy with my experience.

Poffie Girls has everything you need for your wedding ceremony all under one roof. The latest fashions for bridesmaids, flower girls, mothers and tuxedos can all be found at Poffie Girls. We enjoyed utilizing one vendor for the wedding party...less chaos and everyone knew what was going on. It was great and would recommend Poffie Girls to anyone getting married in the Charlotte area.

I purchased my dress from their store when there was a visiting designer trunk show so it was discounted 15%. They were very accommodating and I met with them several times before finding "the dress". The shop is a cozy large house in Gastonia right outside of Charlotte. The alterations were a bit pricy but I think that is the norm. Overall, highly recommended!

I love the ambiance at Poffie Girls and the service is great. You never ever feel rushed and even when it is busy... it is never crazy or uncomfortably so (at least in the bridal department). I had such a great experience shopping for my dress here and playing with different accessories to find the look I was going for. The women at Poffie Girls are the farthest thing from pretentious (which is not always the case in the world of wedding dress shopping) and have no problem trying to help you stay within budget. They know their selection and prices very well and must do some mental notes as they steer you around the store so you don't fall in love with a dress out of budget (you might find it on your own anyway, but at least they aren't pushing you into it!). I really appreciated the gentle honesty and opinions offered when I asked for them as I came down to decision time. My experience with the alterations was incredible. I never even really experienced sticker shock when I found out the price because I had been so impressed with the care and thoroughness taken with my alterations. I'm 5'1 and knew that work was going to need to be done... my second fitting showed we still needed to take more off the hem and the seamstress amazed me as she battled with pins and fabric as she tried to keep the original shape of the dress despite the massive amount of fabric that was being removed. She pulled it off beautifully and by the end of it... I just wanted to hug her for not only her hard work but what a joy she was to talk to throughout the process. A very big thanks to the women here and all their help... they are highly recommended!!

I bought my wedding dress from Poffie Girls. My dress was perfect AND it was on sale for more than half off the original price! I am from out of town and Poffie Girls was very flexible on scheduling my alteration appointments for times when I would be in the area. The only problem I encountered was in the alternations area. I felt that my dress could have been a little shorter and the bussel attachments made stronger. I ended up having to sling my train over my arm for the majority of the reception because the buttons and strings didn't hold my bussel. Oh well. It was still the perfect day.

Poffie Girls has been extremely helpful throughout my dress-buying experience. I came to their shop having already found THE dress but still exploring options. My consultant tried very hard to find me a dress I would love, but ultimately she even advised me to buy the dress I already had found, even though it wasn't through their shop. However, I found out that they could order my dress for several hundred dollars less than the original shop so I placed my order through them. My dress arrived exactly when they said it would, and they have been prompt about letting me know arrival times. The alterations staff were also helpful, and they have excellent accessories, making it a great one-stop shop.

Found my perfect dress quickly with no hiccups after waisting time traveling to other bridal shops with no luck. The staff was very helpful with accessories as well. Only thing that rubbed me the wrong way was when the lady helping me felt the need to tell me how they were paid on commission and didn't like when brides wasted their time and didn't buy anything. Other than that I'm glad I was able to find my dress here!

I purchased my wedding dress here. I was very pleased with my gown. It caught my eyes on the way out the door, naturally I turned right back around and tried it on and fell in love. Now let's discuss the service. I went with two close girlfriends met with our associate, told her what I wanted and everything was great. Then I laid out my budget and the atmosphere plummeted. My budget was reasonably fair 1-2k. At that point I felt like my attention I deserved that day was at a minimum. Add the fact my mom wasn't there equals a consultant who thinks they are not getting a sale that day. Regardless I was paying for the gown, not my mom. We left that day without the dress even though I knew it was the one. Long story short at the end of the day my goal of buying a dress was met, but my experience was lacking. I felt like if I was not throwing down several grand I was not worthy of their services.

I really liked my consultant, Vangie. They had a great selection of dresses and many within my budget of less than $1000. I will say the service was better before I purchased the dress. I wasn't crazy about the alterations department and customer service once they have your business. But overall I loved my dress and would recommend this shop.

I bought my wedding dress from Poffie Girls. I bought a Maggie Sottero gown off the rack. When I was shopping for my gown, I was all about the $99 rack. I was not interested in spending hundreds of dollars on a dress I'd wear once. Alas, when I tried on the Maggie Sottero dress that noble and frugal goal went out the window. The dress was marked down from its original $1200 to about $600, so it was a good "sale" but still a lot of money. My sister bought my veil there as well. The alterations were a complete rip off, but they were done well. At the end of the day, I had a very unique wedding gown that I got oodles of compliments on (altho I guess every bride does) and I felt great in my dress. Their selection was different from many of the other shops, which was nice. Also, I was late for my first appointment (I was driving in from out of town) and the ladies on staff were still pretty accommodating. You do hear them trash talk other customers while your there, but just don't go without an appointment and you should be fine.

My dress was gorgeous! They have hours that are easy to work around your schedule and just as long as its not prom season they are very flexible. The alterations worried me some; I went for my fitting and the seamstress told me I needed 5 bustles, we paid for that. When I got the dress back there was a new seamstress, the dress was late, had a little tear in the back and only 3 bustles. We had to mention the amount of bustles was wrong and show a receipt to get a refund for the 2 not put in. They did take care of everything and she even did one other adjustment for free, in the end it looked great. Another thing was when she showed us how to bustle the dress, it was very quick and only once. When it came time to actually bustle it before the reception, we couldnt figure it out so I had a half bustled dress the whole reception, it was a little irritating but it didnt bother me in the moment.

I went back a few times to try on my dress and every time the staff was more than willing to give me a spot to try it on and accessorize.

I found my dress while shopping with family in Utah, but live in Gastonia. Poffie Girls was the only vendor that carried Maggie Sotero dresses and they were great to work with on the price. The alterations were great too but very minimal. I just felt like I was not treated very nicely sometimes and that they had other important people to attend to when I was there. I would recommend them to anyone bc they have a great selection but it is hit or miss on the customer service end of it all.

I loved my dress and actually found several there that I really loved. The overall experience was great but we had one major glitch. They ordered my dress a size smaller than what we had discussed at the fitting. When it came in, major alterations were needed and because of the material, they were very noticable. The final fit was not perfect as a result. I still loved the dress but wish it had fit better. It also took them almost a month longer than estimated to get the dress in the store. We had to push back the portrait dates as a result. They have great dresses but need to work on their service.

We selected Poffie Girls for my wedding dress, and the mother of the bride dress. The inital appointments for trying on dresses and such in the salon were great. They truly made me (the Bride) feel like a Princess. I selected my dress and they offered to hold it (for a fee) until my alterations and the wedding.
My problems with this shop all happen after, I paid for the wedding dress and mother of the bride dress and they got our money.
My alterations were done incorrectly- The dress had to be altered 3 times within 4 weeks, for them to finally get it correct. I did not loose weight or change my body within 4 weeks. The last alterations was done 3 days before I needed to wear the dress becasue they could not get the size to fit correctly. During my wedding I noticed the bussel was done incorrectly. Too late now, I couldn't do anything about it. Once I started dancing, the dress was too long. I started tripping over it. Again, they should have realized the dress would move and slip and adjusted the length accordingly.
My shoes were done incorrectly- I purchased my wedding shoes from Poffie Girls a month before the wedding and left them to be dyed. I came back (to pick up my dress) 3 days before I needed them for the wedding. The shoes were still sitting in the dying room, undyed. They forgot to dye them.
My mother's dress was too big- They ordered my Mother's dress in a larger size saying it needed to be larger to fit her hips. Well once the dress came into the shop, it was way way too big. So we took it upstairs for alterations and they told us the top of her dress had too much detail and style to alter it properly. The alterations person advised us to get a smaller dress. That wasn't an option. So she altered the large dress they ordered, and it cost a fortune!

The last alterations was done 3 days before I needed to wear the dress becasue they could not get the size to fit correctly. During my wedding I noticed the bussel was done incorrectly. Too late now, I couldn't do anything about it. Once I started dancing, the dress was too long. I started tripping over it. Again, they should have realized the dress would move and slip and adjusted the length accordingly.
My shoes were done incorrectly- I purchased my wedding shoes from Poffie Girls a month before the wedding and left them to be dyed. I came back (to pick up my dress) 3 days before I needed them for the wedding. The shoes were still sitting in the dying room, undyed. They forgot to dye them.
My mother's dress was too big- They ordered my Mother's dress in a larger size saying it needed to be larger to fit her hips. Well once the dress came into the shop, it was way way too big. So we took it upstairs for alterations and they told us the top of her dress had too much detail and style to alter it properly. The alterations person advised us to get a smaller dress. That wasn't an option. So she altered the large dress they ordered, and it cost a fortune! Read less

While the woman that worked with me is absolutely fantastic (Sara), I cannot say much for some of the others. Sara deserves 5 stars across the board, but I cannot rate the business that high due to several things. First of all, many of the employees have an extremely snooty attitude and are rude. Second of all, there was the problem with the bridesmaid's dresses. After telling me the dresses were ordered in plenty of time and that no rush order was possible on the particular brand, they called me back over a month later to tell me they would not be there in time and that I must pay $100 to add a rush to the order. I told them that would not be possible and so they canceled my order! I went with my friend to the store the next day to speak to the owner in person, and she placed the order back on and told me she thought everything would be fine, but they couldn't guarantee anything. The dresses ended up getting here in time, but the owner did not even apologize or admit any wrong in the employees that canceled my order. We were going to get all of the tuxes from them too, but we ended up going to Bedazzled because of the rude behavior. On the upside, the alterations lady (I think her name was Mary but I can't remember) did an excellent job and I was very pleased. They were not too expensive either. I loved my gown, but all gowns in that store are pricey. Just be careful if you go here!

I loved my dress and had initially picked out the dress up in Boone, NC at South's, but at Poffie Girls was able to buy the dress off the floor that was in perfect condition where as the one in Boone didn't seem to be in as good of condition. The initial trip to Poffie Girls was wonderful and Elaine was great, exactly how you picture it. I tried on dressed came back to the one I had already liked and decided it was definitely the one. We bought the dress off the floor because we did not have much time to order and get it in and as mentioned it was perfect, I don't know if it had ever even been tried on. From there we waited until my fitting which also went great, after that at the final fitting. During the final fitting, I mentioned a few issues I was having with the final fitting and dress and that I was not happy with the tailoring and bustle and they just pretty much ignored my concerns and pushed me out the door. I left the store upset and crying because of the way I was treated.
I was then contacted by the owner after one of the employees saw I was noticeably upset and informed her. Turns out the woman who hushed every comment and rushed me out the door and made me feel awful was in fact the owner. She told me to come back she would look at the bustle etc, I told her I was already back home and lived over an hour away and had my daughter that I wasn't going to drag back to Gastonia because my issues were not taken care of then and should have been.
All that being said I loved my dress! We were able to get the dress fixed and it was perfect. I was happy with my first two visits, I left happy and excited, but the last visit (final fitting) just about ruined all the excitement I had about my dress especially knowing I could have gotten the dress up in Boone at South's and they are always great.

Very disappointed. I went to a bridal show mostly for the drawing they were having. I put my tickets in to win the $1000 towards a wedding dress that Poffie Girls was offering. I WON! I was so excited, until I found out I could NOT use it towards the dress I ordered a few weeks ago. There are so many stipulations its not even funny. I now still have to pay for my current dress and use it towards another dress (because you can not use it towards anything else in the store except a bridal dress). And of course it is non transferrabe. I had hoped that they would think about it and do the RIGHT thing, but no. If I had known this before I might have put my ticket in a different drawing. What am I going to do with another wedding dress? I would not recommend them to anyone. They do not treat people fairly or care about them.

If ordered my bridesmaids dresses from here. Big mistake. They're sizing charts so the dresses were too small for each of my bridesmaids. Not that bad, but definitely small. One was ordered 2 sizes too small completely to their error, and they took no claim for the error and offered no way to fix the problem. Even after speaking to the manager, nothing was done about it. The bridesmaid had to go to an outside seamstress, because we didn't trust them due to their extremely low professionalism. This was an unnecessary stress placed on the wedding process. I didn't realize I could have gotten the dresses from where I got my wedding dress (Mecklenburg Bridal - MB). MB said they could have easily requested a favor from the designer and got a rush shipment of a new dress... but it was too late at this point. Poffie Girls never even offered.

Great place to purchase a dress, however alterations were a nightmare.
After seeing Poffie Girls featured on Platinum Weddings and hearing about their fantastic selection, I decided to check it out. The selection process was a breeze. I worked with Ginger who was fantastic. I found my dream dress Enzoani, Marlow and the process of getting the dress was quick and easy. Then comes the nightmare... the alterations department. Not only is the department extremely expensive, but they are disorganized and mean. My dress was purchased a size large, just so I would be safe in the size and could be altered if needed ( 5'5, 128lbs, size 6). The woman in the alterations department ( older with red/brown hair) was very abrasive when speaking to her customers, rude, demeaning and mean. I originally asked for a corset to be sewn in to be able to make the dress tight or loose in different areas as I am a nervous eater/starver ( like most women). She immediately shut down my idea and did the alterations she wanted, not what I wanted. I went back for alterations 3 times, each time being shamed and told I had no idea what I was talking about At the final alterations, I asked for changes and was told they would not change the dress any further. The sides of the dress were botched from being taken in and let out, the dress was too tight around my rib cage, the bust of the dress was a little big as you could see down my cleavage, and the bustle for the heavy train was held up with 3 small buttons. Being that I was running out of time, I shipped my extremely tight dress to California for my platinum destination wedding. When I tried on the dress 2 days before the wedding, it would not zip up because it was too tight (still 5'5 and 128 lbs). I ended up having to have a tailor for the stars in Los Angeles, California sew a corset ( that I originally asked for) in to the dress. Luckily she saved the day but did not save me any tears or cash and my dress finally fit.

I would never recomment Poffie Girls. I spent weeks of not getting returned calls, only to find out that the sales person that helped me was no longer there. After repeated attempts to call, no one would tell me that. When I went in for my fitting, the seamstress was rude. When I told her the dress wasn't laying right she told me that it looks fine and it will look different to everyone. After I persisted that it wasn't right, she discovered a thread that was needing to be cut under one of the layers. She never apologized. This was the worst experience I have ever had and for the money I spent on the dress, I thought Poffie Girls would have been a little more respectful and professional. Don't let their friendly demeanor fool you when you arrive. Once you put down your deposit, the courtesy and professionalism goes right out the window.

I went here looking for a bridesmaid gown. I live in Charlotte so I called before I went to make sure they have plus sized bridesmaid gowns as my maid of honor is plus sized. I was told they do and they have size extenders to try on gowns. No appointment needed to try on bridesmaid gowns. So we drive all the way there only to find the woman were very snooty and rude and barely wanted to help us. And it also turns out they don't have any plus size bridesmaid gowns they can only order them.
Then, on the way out I saw a cute pair of shoes on the wall behind the main desk. I was standing there talking to my bridesmaid about how nice they were and I wanted to see them. Well the lady at the computer at the main desk literally ignored me for a long time before looking up to even aknowledge us standing there. She knew I wanted to see the shoes because she (without prompting) asked which shoe I wanted to see.

I would never, ever recommend this store to anyone. The sales women are extremly dismissive and stuck up. I didn't like my experience here...at all! I will be looking elsewhere for a bridesmaid gown.
