For the size 0 to 10 bride, this place is PERFECT. The staff are so friendly and sweet, their customer service during booking is incredible. The salon itself is gorgeous and dresses are beautiful.

For brides size 12 & up, this is a great option, but just be prepared: I wear a street size 12 or 14 in my bust. Although I wear a size 10 at the waist, this makes me plus size in the bridal world. This is absolutely fine. nobody will be checking the size tag on my wedding day, so whatever. But shopping at a store where ALL of the sample gowns are small, was a little hard. I knew that I wouldn't fit into most of them, but was not prepared for not being able to fit into ANYTHING. I figured at least one dress would be one the bigger side? The consultant I worked with was very understanding and so sweet and supportive, but it really ruined the experience for me. I felt so focused on my size, and so embarrassed, that I couldn't really enjoy the gowns. My bust spilled out of everything and I couldn't look past that. I wish the salon would stock a handful of bigger dresses, so that everyone could experience a gown that fits.

I ultimately went with a gown from their sister store "Privée" - I strongly recommend any store in this family, as their customer service is top notch, and the stores are gorgeous.

Seriously, Abby provided me with the best experience ever. Super helpful when finding a dress that looked perfect on me. I had a set design and fit in my mind until they had me try on the most gorgeous ball gowns EVER, my whole idea of a wedding dressed changed right then. The fact that they took the time to specifically pick out options based on what details were important to me and hit the nail on the head, blew me out of the water. The champagne was definitely a plus - Truly felt like I was being catered to the entire time! THANK YOU ABBY - I'M DYING TO GET BACK THERE AND PUT MY DRESS ON AGAIN!

Going to Pure English was an incredible experience. The staff and inventory far exceeded any other gown store I had been too. Maya, the owner, was extremely patient and allowed me to try on almost every dress in the store! As someone with body issues, her positivity allowed for me to feel like a princess in every single dress I stepped out of the fitting room in.

Oh! And did I mention .. They provide you with wine to ease the nerves!!

I was able to leave Pure English with the dress, veil AND shoes of my dreams!! Thank you Pure English!! I can't wait to return to purchase jewelry!!

I found the absolutely perfect Pronovius dress here! Everyone was very nice, allowed me to take my time looking at and trying on dresses, and when I found the one, were So excited for me! Two areas that were a little disappointing-- 1- the sample dress I had on fit me to a T but they were unwilling to discount it whatsoever for me to purchase that dress, even though it had been there for a few months. (this didn't seem to be the policy at the other boutiques I went to) and 2- when I asked some logistical questions about mermaid gowns, no one seemed to give me a straight up answer. Overall, great selection and very nice people!

I bought my wedding dress at Pure English earlier this year. The girls were so helpful in helping me to narrow down my choices. I loved their professional and personal input. I ordered my dress. It came in last month and I had my first "try on" - it was as beautiful as I remember. I found a few accessories to go with it and ordered them. I'll go back for my final fitting right before my wedding.

The single most compliment I received at my wedding was how beautiful my dress was. I am still so in love with my dress thanks to Pure English, Maya and Anzen! Maya is the owner and she made sure everything I needed for my wedding day attire was achieved. Anzen altered my dress to perfection and constantly provided support when I was stressed out. These ladies know what they are doing, and truly have the most gorgeous dresses to choose from. Go to Pure English, or any of her 4 other stores! I also got my bridesmaid's, mother's dress and earrings from Pure English. I was so happy with everything.

I went to four different dress stores in search of the perfect wedding dress (I like to be thorough). Pure English was by far the best of the bunch. Kate was amazing- she made me feel very comfortable (important for someone who is seeing you half naked!) and was very good at helping me figure out what I wanted and what I did not want in a dress. Pure English has the best selection of dresses that I've seen- I was able to try on way more dresses there than anywhere else. Most of the other stores had one or two dresses that I kind of liked after I had tried them on- there were four dresses at Pure English that I could have easily seen myself getting married in. It was difficult to narrow down!

The prices at Pure English do seem slightly higher than some other stores, but they do carry a range of prices and the gowns seem to be of a higher quality than elsewhere. Plus, the overall experience was the best I had at any of the shops I went to.

One of the things that we were initially really concerned about was getting my dress in and altered before my wedding in October. 6 months is kind of a short time frame, wedding-wise, and a different shop said that while they could get the dress in time, there was no way that they would have time to alter it in-house and I would just have to hope that an alterations person in the area would have time to do it (which was a really worrying prospect). Pure English, however, has assured us that they will be able to do the alterations in house with no problem. As Kate said, that's what they're there for- to help me get my dress and be ready for my wedding day.

I would absolutely recommend this store to anyone else (and Kate as well- I'm sure the other people who work there are fantastic, but she's the one I worked with and I really liked her)!
