Pure Bliss has been fantastic thus far. I was able to schedule a Monday private session, and the consultant had picked out a series of dresses in my size that were in line with the look I wanted for my dress. She emailed me in advance with a whole list of questions so that she could be prepared day-of. It was fantastic. The only downside was that it was extremely hot in the shop in August, and they didn't have on air conditioning. I was literally dripping by the time we were done - carrying heavy dresses around and all of the nerves were a tough combination in the heat! But otherwise I loved the experience.

I had a wonderful customer experience at Pure Bliss. I shopped at 5 stores and Pure Bliss was the best!! Maxine is an angel. Before my appointment, she emailed me a list of questions about what kind of bride dress I wanted. She listened to what I wanted and she had several dresses pulled and ready for me to try on at my appointment! No other place did this. It made the process very efficient because she clearly heard me and knew what I wanted. The dresses she showed me were very much the style I am looking for so the process was very efficient. They have a seamstress, onsite storage and were willing to work with me on the final price of the dress. If you are looking for a wedding dress, you should go to Pure Bliss! The store is beautiful. It is worth the drive to Newburyport, but this is right near the ocean and you can have a nice lunch and walk around the cute town of Newburyport. It was highly recommended to me by my coworker who bought her wedding dress there.

Absolutely love love love! The best experience. The ladies are so knowledgeable, helpful, and kind. For My first appointment, I was actually the only bride in the shop. So it was so relaxed and I was catered to. Then for my bridesmaid shopping, again we were the only group in the shop. Again so relaxing and we were catered to. Lastly, the gown i chose was strapless but we added straps onto it by ordering extra lace. The alterations team then made my straps vision a beautiful reality. During my wedding I got cake on the top of my dress. I brought it back to Pure Bliss and they sent it out for preservation and the stain came out!! I was so happy. Overall, pure bliss is the best place, I highly recommend them!

I first came to Pure Bliss in the summer of 2015 when I was newly engaged. I was not sure what to expect as this was my first time dress shopping. From the first time I called to set up an appointment I felt comfortable with my decision to use Pure Bliss! I loved the consultant we worked with. She made me feel so comfortable and made for a great experience! We went back a few months later and actually got all of our bridesmaid dresses and tuxes from them as well. Every time I had to call or email I felt like I was talking to a friend- so pleasant and there to address any and all of my concerns and questions. I was just married this September and I truly LOVED my dress, the bridesmaid dresses and the tuxes!! I wish I could wear my gown again! The alterations were perfect and it fit me so well. Best part- my husband said I looked BEAUTIFUL! For anyone who is looking for a great experience at a local bridal shop please use this store! You will be happy you did.

I had a very pleasant experience working with Pure Bliss. I was able to find my dream dress for less than $1,000 which is far less than I ever imagined I would end up paying for a wedding dress. Compared to other bridal boutiques I visited, Pure Bliss is pretty average. You're set up with a consultant who is attentive and works with you only, which is nice. The areas they provide for your family and friends to sit is pretty small and not too private compared to some of the other stores I visited. Pure Bliss has kind of strange hours that didn't work too well with my schedule which I why I gave them 3.5 stars in flexibility, but thats only me; I'm sure this is not the case for every bride who shops there!

I worked with Maxine when finding my dress and she is awesome. She was really helpful and accommodating and was honest about prices and what fits flattered me and didn't try to sell me anything I didn't love. Another really great thing about pure bliss is that you can see all the dresses they have, and you can try any of them on. Some of the other stores only allowed consultants into the dress room, so you were really just counting on them to find things you might like, which was not the case here.

In all, I would certainly (and have already!) recommend Pure Bliss to other brides, just make sure to make an appointment!

Pure Bliss is the best shop I've been to! I couldn't have been any happier with my choice to buy my dress here. Maxine was helping me and she had done a great job. She left my family and I alone pick out dresses which was fun and they have a great variety. When trying them on she had me in and out of them without wasting any time at all. She had a great personality and was very fun to work with so it made the entire trip worth it. I had my choices down to two and I absolutely loved both, she had given me one tip about one dress explaining that in pictures you will not be able to see if shine of the dress which made me automatically go with my other choice. She was not pushy what so ever, she let my family and I talk in private so make sure this was dress. Overall, she was terrific and I would HIGHLY recommend this shop and especially Maxine to help any brides find their dress. They also have a great variety of bridesmaid dresses too which I will be going back for!!

GET YOUR ALTERATIONS DONE BY SOMEONE ELSE! I figured this place specializes in wedding dresses so they must know what they're doing! NOPE! I had a great experience finding and purchasing with Maxine at Pure Bliss, but then had the dress brought to the sister store Swoon for alterations because it's closer to me. The first appointment wasn't bad but the 2nd and 3rd were stressful and horrible. The alterations looked terrible and the tailor, Janine, gave my mother and me so much attitude that it became uncomfortable. At the 3rd appointment I ended up having her basically undo everything she had done except for the hem, but she still charged me for all of it. After that, all that was left for her to do was the bustle so we scheduled a pick up date. I asked for a french bustle which is when they tuck the extra material underneath the dress and tie it with ribbons. My mother picked it up this week and it had hook and eyes on the outside of the dress - the complete opposite of what I wanted. I brought my dress to my regular tailor and it was worse than I thought. She said that Janine "BUTCHERED" the dress and was absolutely horrified at what she had done to it. My tailor thinks that she might not be a real seamstress and has absolutely no clue what she is doing. The dress is all lace so the hem needs to be done in a certain way to preserve the detailed scalloping at the bottom. She had cut it off in the wrong place and also cut it in places where it shouldn't have been cut at all. Then she reattached it horribly and there were holes, gaps, and bunching all over. After all that butchering, it was still more than 2 inches too long, so my tailor had to completely redo the hem so I wouldn't be tripping over it. Also, there was damage to the beading around the waist, a bunch of holes in the back, and my tailor discovered that the dress had been taken in on both sides of the row of buttons going up the back. Explains why it was so tight at my second fitting. What a disaster!

This shop is amazing. I came from out of state to look for a wedding gown and I'd already stopped at other places before I went to Pure Bliss. I was SO happy to have made the trip here. The staff was great letting me (and my family) browse the racks and try on dress after dress. I found 'the one' on my shopping trip but wasn't 100% sold on buying it then. I came home to upstate NY and found that none of the shops locally carried the dress so I called Pure Bliss and decided to pull the trigger. They were so amazing, they said if I waited a week or two the designer I chose was having a sale so I could order then and get a discount. Not only did they order my dress perfectly they sent it to their sister store closer to my family so they would be able to pick it up. I cannot say enough about the great service and selection I found there.
