I had gone out shopping for a dress at a well known chain store. I was only able to find one that, I liked but wasn't in love, so decided to find some smaller Bridal shops. I came across Renaissance Bridal and made my appointment. My mom and aunt went with me the day of my appointment.

My consultant, Mandy, was so welcoming. We walked in and were welcomed right away. Mandy took the time to find out if I had anything in mind and I did but also told her, I was wide open for suggestions as well. She took us back to a beautiful room, while she went and searched for some dresses to try on. Not once did she ask for my size and I am a plus size lady. She came back with 3 dresses and we started trying them on. She asked me personal questions, and wedding questions. I got to know her personally as well. I felt like a friend was helping me try on dresses rather then a sales rep. If I didn't like the dress 100% she wanted to know what I did like. Eventually she found the dress for me. Introduced me to a local designers sashes and I fell in love with my dress.

I ended up buying my dress that very day. The people in Renaissance, gave me the most wonderful experience, I would have asked for. I didn't feel like, I was being rushed or looked over for my size or my price range. I have told a few friends to ask for Mandy as well. Ran into Jon, at the bridal show this past weekend and he even remembered seeing myself and my mother in the shop as well. We talked a little more and I couldn't imagine getting my dress anywhere else. I look forward to the next year, working with me on my dress and the Tuxedos as well! Possibly Bridemaids dresses as well!!!

Renaissance Bridal provided a lovely experience from the moment we walked in. After giving a short description of what types of dresses I was interested in they began pulling dresses while my mother and sister were provided mimosas. From the very first dress I tried on I could tell the staff was carefully listening to my wants and needs. I have selective tastes (down to what types of lace I prefer) and they didn't put me in a single dress that I wouldn't consider wearing on my wedding day. The best part of the experience was the dress I ended up buying was one I would never have considered trying on. They are aware of what their customers want even if they don't know they want it. I absolutely love this dress and cannot wait to go back for the fitting.

Debrah was my consultant at Renaissance Bridal and she was fantastic! She choose the perfect dresses (which made the decission a little difficult). She really listened to what I wanted in a dress. When I was between two beautiful dresses, Debrah asked if I would be dissappointed if I didn't walk down the aisle in this one particular dress. That is how I knew it was definitely the dress for me! I am beyond excited about my dress! It is truly one of a kind! Couldn't have asked for a better experience!

Renaissance was the first store I went to when looking for gowns, and immediately found a gown I fell in love with. I held off on buying it that day, only because I had another appointment scheduled for the following weekend with additional family members coming along. When I decided to go back and purchase the dress, the staff at Renaissance was extremely accomodating to working with my schedule. Specifically, I worked with Deborah and LOVED her. She was down to earth, professional, and made me feel so at ease. Plan on going back there to purchase Bridesmaids dresses as well after such an awesome experience.

I was very impressed on my overall experience. It was a blast! I went wedding dress shopping Saturday Oct. 26 and I really recommend working with Alexis. I had a vision of what I wanted and what I didn't want. She found my wedding dress for me. It was the 3rd one I tried on. She was spot on of what I was looking for. I was really optimistic on straps, keyhole back, lace. Just how to incorporate it all and I fell in love with my dress as SOON as I tried it on. I love Renaissance Bridal and Prom and would recommend it to anyone I know that is a future bride. Everyone was super nice and friendly too!

I got my dream wedding gown from Renaissance Bridal. I thoroughly enjoyed working with the bridal consultant, Deborah. She was friendly, gave great recommendations (i.e. fit and material), and found the perfect gown for me to try after hearing exactly what it was that I envisioned. Once I had on the gown, she found the perfect accessories to enhance the entire look (belt and straps).

I could not have been more excited to show off my gown at my wedding this past weekend. My guests raved about how gorgeous my dress was. It truly was beautiful! I didn't want to take it off!

The only downfall with Renaissance is that their lovely shop is not wheelchair accessible.

Renaissance Bridal was wonderful! The staff was very helpful and accommodating. They found out what I liked and pulled the dresses for me. They offered me and my family beverages while we shopped. We felt like a million dollars walking in there. I did end up buying my wedding dress from them! If you go to Renaissance Bridal before going anywhere else to try on dresses you will be extremely disappointed with every other bridal shop :)

The staff was very helpful. I walked in the door and described to Debroh what I was looking for. The first dress that I tried on was the one that I eventually eneded up buying. That dress was not one that I had described to her but she definitely got it right. I would definitely recommend renaissance to anyone they know what they are doing.

I just had an appointment today at this store, and I have to say how absolutely impressed I was! from the minute I walked in the door i was amazed by the decor of the whole store. A very nice lady named Mandy helped me and I loved that she listened and asked me questions about what I liked and didnt like about certain dresses. she was right on! She really knew what she was doing, and was very professional. Every dress she pulled for me was absolutely beautiful, but I quickly found my dress!! She made the process so easy! She worked with me so that I could put a down payment on my dress the same day, and stayed within my budget. I highly reccommend this place to anyone searching, and I want to come back to get my bridesmaid dresses and tuxes here as well!! Ive never had an experience as great as this one!!

Amazing experience! Prior to finding my dress at Renaissance Bridal, I went to 5 other bridal shops and tried on numerous gowns (all beautiful, but all missing that "something"). Believe me when I tell you, all of the dresses at the Renaissance have that something! The gowns are gorgeous, the staff is phenomenal, the building is breathtaking, and you feel like their very first bride from the moment you walk-in. This was truly an experience and it was my experience. I am so thankful that I took this recommendation from an acquaintance, and drove the 3 hours to get the dress of my dreams. Go here - I promise you won't be disappointed!

I had a great experience at Renaissance! I had some ideas of what I wanted for my dress and gave this to my consultant when I got there. She picked dresses based on what I said and offered some others, if I wanted. She got what I wanted EXACTLY and I ended up loving the very first dress she pulled! After looking at a couple of places and feeling disappointed that I may never find the "perfect" dress, it was such a relief and joy to find my perfect dress at Renaissance. I was also pleasantly surprised at the price!

As soon as I walked into Renaissance I knew I would be taken care of! Both Jon and Deb greeted me, along with my entourage, at the door with smiles. They made us very comfortable and offered everyone drinks at our arrival. I had been to several places and pretty much knew what I was looking for. I explained what I wanted to Deb and she brought out a few dresses... but it was the first one that I tried on that was perfect. She listened to everything I wanted in my dress and found it right away. They have also been flexible with me since I have a sister who lives out of state and have allowed me to come back more than once just to try on my dress to show my loved ones who were unable to make the initial appointment. I am so thankful for everyone at Renaissance and would recommend them to anyone who is looking to find their perfect dress! Thanks so much!

I had a wonderful experience at Renaissance Bridal! My consultation when I chose my dress was very special, the service far exceeded any other shop I had went to. I also picked out my veil and shoes from Renaissance. I had such a great experience that I also used them for my bridesmaid dresses. One of my bridesmaids was pregnant, so Renaissance worked with me on the options and getting extra fabric.

The alterations on my wedding dress were perfect and they taught my maid of honor how to bustle the dress. Even living out of town, they were accommodative to my schedule. I had no issues with the dress at all on my wedding day and felt comfortable the entire day. The excellent service at Renaissance made my experience of picking my wedding dress and first fitting even more special!

I chose Renaissance Bridals initially based on the brands they carried that I was interested in taking a look at. It's a cute little boutique in a old townhouse with a lot of charm and beautiful gowns. They had a variety of gowns in my price range and showed me based on what would look best on my body type- not just the cost (I ended up getting the dress for a lot less than what my max budget was). My mom, mother in law and sisters and I had such a fun time trying on dresses- a handsome gentleman served mimosas and the staff were fun and helpful. We also bought bridesmaids dresses through the salon and my girls were very pleased with them and it was easy for the girls to call in their sizes (they were all over the state).

Above all else, the staff went above and beyond to help and accommodate whatever I needed which was very much appreciated. I stopped in a few times to try on the dress and get fitted and everyone I encountered was fantastic. Alterations were perfect and they addressed everything I wanted!

I scheduled my first dress appointment with Renaissance on a whim. When my family and I walked in, we were greeted by the owner, Jon, and were treated as a priority from the moment we walked in. We were offered a variety of drinks and Jon asked me what I was looking for. I only had vague ideas of parts that I like about dresses, so I told him a few things that I liked and then let him "Do his job" which worked out well for me! Between Jon and Alexis, I tried on 3 dresses and was done! They nailed it with the third dress - I didn't want to take it off! They let me and my family (I brought 4 people with me) stay in the main mirrored area trying on different accessories to go with it for probably an hour, during which time Jon checked in on us several times and offered us more to drink, gave us accessory ideas and gave me compliments Galore! Everyone there was helpful and polite and they got me the perfect dress before I even knew what I was looking for. They have followed up with me on questions that I had and have been a real pleasure to deal with. I highly recommend to anyone who is looking for an exceptional experience!

Renaissance Bridals gave us a wonderful wedding dress shopping experience and I found a dress beyond my wildest dreams! My Mom and I went looking for my wedding dress on a friday afternoon, and had the shop and Jon's expertise all to ourselves! Right away Jon had several recommendations on what to try on, and recommended I try on different "styles" before narrowing it down (while my Mom basked in the experience sipping champagne!). Once I determined the style I liked, he pulled out a fabulous boutique designer dress that he had only gotten the day before and it was perfect! He also added beaded straps, a cathedral veil, and a fur wrap to top it off!

We also purchased our bridesmaids dresses from Renaissance and had alterations on my dress and several bridesmaid's dresses done there. The seamstress was amazing and their prices were very reasonable!

I would highly recommend Renaissance!!

Greeted as soon as we went through the door by Jon. Very helpful getting our consult. Consult was very friendly, young, beautiful and very helpful pulling the right wedding dress for my daughter WOW how beautiful she looks. The consult stayed in the price range I gave her. Which was very nice then my daughter didn't fall in love with a dress we couldn't afford. And me having to tell her she couldn't get the dress of her DREAMS because we couldn't afford it In fact the dress of her DREAMS was under what I told the consult. I was Leary about going to Renaissance at first because we are on a budget with the wedding. I wish the sky was the limit but that is not possible. They have beautiful dresses for all budgets. It's a must stop to find the dress of your DREAMS. We were less then one hour before we had your dress. Thank you Renaissance

My experience with Renaissance Bridal was wonderful. I was an 'out of town' bride and they really worked hard to accommodate my schedule and travel needs. The staff was knowledgeable and genuinely seemed to take pride in their work. When I first began trying to select a gown they actually listened to my taste preferences and did an impressive job pulling dresses for me to try (the third gown I tried on was "the one"). The simple act of listening was so important for me as a bride because I didn't know exactly what I wanted, and it was also quite refreshing, as many of the mainstream stores simply try to force you to fit an existing mold. The communication was good through the entire process of selecting, ordering, and altering. Overall, I would highly recommend Renaissance Bridal to other brides located in both in the immediate York area and the greater region. It's worth the trip.

The simple act of listening was so important for me as a bride because I didn't know exactly what I wanted, and it was also quite refreshing, as many of the mainstream stores simply try to force you to fit an existing mold. The communication was good through the entire process of selecting, ordering, and altering. Overall, I would highly recommend Renaissance Bridal to other brides located in both in the immediate York area and the greater region. It's worth the trip. Read less

Renaissance is AWESOME. Obviously being a bride can be difficult, especially since you have no idea what you're doing! I had dresses picked that I thought were perfect, which they pulled, but Maggie pulled a dress she thought I would love. It was the one! My choices just didn't fit me the right way, but Renaissance definitely knew what they were doing! They are also just so kind and helpful through the whole process.

I had the most amazing experience with Renaissance Bridal and since I work in the wedding industry, I've given my full recommendation to all of my brides too. I walked in and was immediately greeted by one of their specialists and she helped me find the perfect dress, aware of the style I wanted and eager to help me try on as many as I desired. The owner was there that day as well and was incredibly generous with his time, being attentive to my mother and best friend who were with me. I did "say yes to the dress" that day and on my wedding day felt like that was the most beautiful I'd ever looked. Thank you Renaissance Bridal!

I highly recommend Renaissance. The owners, Beth and Jon, are wonderful, and they carry beautiful gowns. I got both my bridal gown and rented the tuxes there. My husband said the tux was the most comfortable formal clothes he'd been in--and he's in construction, so he's none too tolerant of dressy clothes.
The salon is beautiful, and the staff has such good taste. The alterations were great--I'm a short lady, and they made the bottom of the dress perfect, despite a lot of necessary hemming. I highly recommend them.

My experience with Renaissance was perfect from the start all the way through the fitting. I walked in without an appointment not expecting much, but the very first dress they pulled for me was the One. From there it was all super simple in terms of fitting, ordering accessories, etc. When it came time for the fitting, because I was heading out of town, after the first fitting they made the alterations and turned it around in less than 24 hours and it fit like a glove. I would recommend them highly to anyone in York or anywhere.

I worked with Maggie at Renaissance Bridal and she was amazing. I told her my budget and she picked out about 5 dresses for me to try on. Every one of them looked 10x better on me than anything I had seen at David's. She knew exactly what was going to look good on me. The prices are, of course, higher than chain stores, you need to have at least $1,000 to spend, but the service and quality make it worth the cost. The dresses at the other stores looked and felt cheaper. I highly recommend them!

Recently purchased my daughter's wedding gown at Renaissance. The service at this salon was superb. My daughter walked into this salon not knowing what she wanted and left with exactly what she wanted. We worked with Jon Smith and he was extremely professional and knowledgeable and did a great job of being able to read what she liked and disliked about the different dresses and made her try both to confirm things to her so she had no doubts about her choices when she left. The quality of the gowns and the personal service we received here made our experience very positive. I also felt the price we paid for the gown was reasonable for the quality gown we were receiving. We had been to a local chain store in the area and the service was horrible (we basically served ourself even with an appointment) and the quality of the gowns at Renaissance were far superior. We would recommend this salon.

I'm so glad I found Renaissance Bridal! The first place I went to didn't even want to talk to me because I didn't have my ring yet. Then we went to David's Bridal, which was a mad house and they kept brushing me off telling me that they were extremely busy and someone would be with us just go find something that you like on the racks...well I've never been wedding dress shopping before what do I know what might look good?! Well we left there and were headed home defeated and my girlfriend just remembered Renaissance. She quickly called them up to make sure that they were still open. They said if we could get there in 15 mins they could squeeze us in. I'm so glad they did!! John was the one who help us. He asked what I was looking for, I told him that I was unsure and he went ahead and picked out a few to try. The first one was the one!! Absolutely stunning!! They even kept it in store for 2 years till the date came! Even getting the dress altered was a great experience! So wonderful and nice! I'm definitely going back when I need gowns for me or my daughter! Thank you guys so much!

AMAZING!!!!! A year ago I started looking for dresses in the York area & my first stop was at Renaissance. I was greeted by Mandy who helped me at my first appointment & she was GREAT! I told her the "style" I had in mind and she did the rest! She did an amazing job helping me into the gowns (which is not always the case, some places will make you try them on yourself) and helping me narrow down my decision. She knew what I was looking for & surprised me with the PERFECT dress, I LOVE IT.

Our wedding is quickly approaching & ALL of our "attire" is coming from Renaissance. They are doing all of the tuxes & John did a fabulous job. He helped my fiance pick out a great tux & measured all of the groomsmen. He was also very accommodating to our out of town bridal party members who had to do measurements via email/phone calls.

Since my first meeting with Mandy, the rest of the staff have done a fabulous job with phone calls/emails/alteration appointments. Lois the seamstress there did an unbelievable job with my dress. It needed hemmed & it has a very intricate bottom, and it looked PERFECT. Debra & Beth have been helping me at the last few appointments & they have made sure every little detail is perfect. I have purchased everything from Renaissance including my dress, shoes, veil, headband and jewelry.

I cannot say enough positive things at Renaissance Bridals. They will go above and beyond what is required of them to make sure your dress is perfect. They really care about their customers and how their brides look on their special day. They help create a beautiful experience & create wonderful memories to last forever. I would HIGHLY recommend them!!!!!! They are the best! I sincerely appreciate everything they've done for our wedding.

Renaissance Bridal was amazing! I found my dream dress after only trying on a handful of dresses. I told them the style I wanted and they hit it spot on. I really would have been happy in any of the dresses they brought me, they were all gorgeous. Their unique sashes are amazing too, I ended up picking one out to go with my dress. They made me feel like a princess, just as every bride should feel. They were extremely helpful and always in communication with me. They did a great job with the alterations also. Their customer service was unmatched compared to the other places I looked in York. I would recommend them to anyone!

Renaissance provided excellent and knowledgeable service when it came time to select my wedding gown. The prices at Renaissance were comparable to other bridal salons in York, but a far higher level of service. I worked with Maggie, and she helped me identify what I liked and what I didn't. She knew the dresses - styles, materials, and how alterations would affect the dress. Maggie also offered many good ideas on veil, hairstyle, and jewelry - but wasn't overbearing. The staff accommodated multiple visits, and did not try to hard-sell me on a dress that wasn't right for me. Happy I bought my gown here!

I can't say enough good things about this place and the people that work here. The selection of dresses is great and the staff is so friendly and really knows what they are talking about. Maggie helped me during my first appointment and was awesome! I took one look at the dress she pulled for me and said "I don't think so" and she gently encouraged me to try it on anyway. Thankfully, I listened and it ended up being the dress I wore on my wedding day. I wanted sleeves, but had given up on that idea since non-strapless is difficult to find anywhere. Again, Maggie had a solution and I ended up wearing a lace overlay that looked like part of the dress, but came off for the reception. My only regret (which was my fault because I changed my mind VERY last minutes) was the belt I picked. It was beautiful, but had flowers on it and it didn't really work for my winter wedding. At my final fitting a week before, Beth was there and let me switch it out for a brand new, blinged out belt and it made SUCH a difference. They also had the seamstress at my final fitting and she did a few minor bustle alterations right then and there so I didn't have to come back. The seamstress (I regret not being able to remember her name) is seriously talented! My dress was lace with crystals and beads and tons of detail, so I had no idea how they were going to hem it. She actually removed the lace bottom and re-attached it flawlessly. She also reconstructed the lace jacket to fit me perfectly...all for about half of the price of the first store I looked at who had a 'flat fee' for alterations. The prices here are VERY affordable and the staff is so friendly. Another review said something about finding a dress for cheaper elsewhere. I'm sure I could have saved a few bucks purchasing online from some random place but I was not willing to risk the excellent customer service and alterations. I've heard enough horror stories that I was really picky with a dress shop...and this was it!

I came here as my first stop for a gown with my mom. I knew what dress I always dreamed I would wear on my wedding day, but was open to try on anything. Maggie went and pulled about 10 dresses of all different styles. The first dress she put on me was my dress. Blew every other dress away. Nothing like what I had envisioned for my dress, but so perfect! She shared our enthusiasm, gave honest criticism and opinion when we needed it, then poured us celebratory wine for the moment I chose my dress! I really couldn't ask for a better experience when choosing my wedding gown. It was just as I had always imagined it should be- and I couldn't be more grateful to the staff at Renaissance Bridal for this experience! My only sadness, as well as my mothers, is that we finished this bridal gown search so quickly!!!

My husband also used Renaissance for his tux as well as his groomsmen and our fathers. All the men looked so sharp on wedding day- as I knew John would make sure they would! We had a last minute tailoring issue with my step-son but the staff at Renaissance really made sure that whatever was needed to fix this for wedding day was done- and he too looked handsome as anything!

I couldn't recommend anymore highly than I did for a bride to go to Renaissance Bridal. From the price to the selection to the staff to the overall service- exactly the experience every bride-and groom- should have for this most spectacular event in our lives!!!

I came here as my first stop for a gown with my mom. I knew what dress I always dreamed I would wear on my wedding day, but was open to try on anything. Maggie went and pulled about 10 dresses of all different styles. The first dress she put on me was my dress. Blew every other dress away. Nothing like what I had envisioned for my dress, but so perfect!

As someone who lives in Baltimore County, I began looking for a dress a year in advance at bridal salons all throughout the Baltimore area. I wasn't having much luck though - the nice salons seemed really expensive (my budget was roughly $1500), and the lower end ones seemed cheap and impersonal. Also, none of the employees seemed to really cinch me into the dresses that I was trying on! So it was really hard to get a feel of whether or not something looked good on my frame.
A friend recommended going to Renaissance Bridal in York, which is 45 minutes away. She also said to make my appointment with Maggie. I'm SO glad I went up there. Maggie is great - she is stylish and SO nice, and the first dress she picked out for me ended up being "the one." She also convinced me to try on an off the shoulder lace jacket that buttoned up the back, something I never would have chosen on my own. It was stunning, elegant, and completely transformed the look into something unique. Added bonus, I could take the lace off after the ceremony for a totally different look. Overall, everything went perfectly. The alterations were not inexpensive (but not outrageous either), but they did an amazing job on both the lace and the dress itself. The only negative is they didn’t alter the sleeves to be as tight as I originally asked, but if I had mentioned it to them at my final fitting, they would have corrected it (they offer to do this). I would highly recommend going to Renaissance (ask for Maggie!) for your wedding day. Their prices are lower than Baltimore and their employees are so friendly. The owners, John and Beth, seem to really care about making you look and feel good in your wedding dress.

LOVED my dress! I walked in after having some bad experiences at other bridal salons not wanting to even try on any more dresses. The owners listened to what I was looking for and put me in the first dress they thought would work. It ended up being that very first dress that I purchased - and I have had nothing but phenomenal feedback from so many people at my wedding on how beautiful the dress was. The alterations were done perfectly the first time - I wouldn't have changed anything about my wedding attire!

Great Selection and prices for very low end to high end!! I had on $10,000 + designer dresses on in Philly and the selection that York had was just as wonderful. Beth, the owner, was amazing, professional and friendly to work with. She made you feel like a beautiful bride but guided you in the right direction with what looked best for your body type. They created my entire look from jewlery to my veil and shoes - - - the girls that work at this bridal shop have a gift of choosing the right accessories to make everything come together.

I was very very pleased with them once again. I've gotten both my prom dresses here and know a few friends who got their wedding dresses here!

Although a bit pricey, I knew I wouldn't find anything else like it somewhere else. They were very knowledgable and walked me through all the knowledge I had no idea about which helped greatly with my decision. I had the whole place to myself and didn't feel to rushed to make a decision.

Deb is who worked with me and she was just wonderful! I needed someone patient and who could tolerate my picky-ness. She paid great attention to what I liked and didn't of different dresses and picked out the most absolutely perfect one that had everything I wanted. When she put on the veil it brought the whole thing together and I burst into tears! Couldn't have asked for a better first time experience.

The complimentary wine was very nice too ;)

I went to Renaissance Bridal looking for my wedding dress. I went with friends and upon entering the store we were asked if we wanted anything to drink and were made welcome. I went with a friend who is also getting married, so we had back to back appointments slated for 10:00 to 10:30. We ended up being there until after 1:00!! We got great personal attention from our consultant, Alexis, who was able to pull really great dresses for us. Jon, the owner, was also great in helping us find our dresses and just made the entire experience really fun! We both ended up finding our dress!
Since I wanted my mom to see the dress before purchasing, I immediately made an appointment for the next weekend. I had the same care and attention on the second trip and ended up purchasing the dress!
The store has a great selection of gowns and a lot of them were within my budget. Also as someone who doesn't fit in the extremely smaller sizes that most other bridal salons carry, I was really pleased that they had dresses I could try on that fit me. It really makes a difference when you are trying to envision how the dress will fit and what the dress will actualy look like on your wedding day.
Overall I had a really great experience at Renaissance Bridal and I can't wait to see my dress once it comes in!!

I purchased my prom dress years ago from Renaissance Bridal so when I got engaged, I knew exactly where I wanted to get my dress! My dress shopping experience was everything I could have hoped for....Deborah was amazing to work with. She was fun to work with and was always able to provide an extra opinion to help with making final decisions. Renaissance has a great selection of veils, accessories, and jewelry. Deborah helped me pick the perfect veil and headband to complement my dress.

The same day I found my dress, we also selected my bridesmaid's dresses...they have an awesome selection and we had a lot of fun trying on different options. My mom even found a dress for herself for my wedding! Needless to say, it was a great day all around and we all walked out with our dresses ordered!

I would highly recommend Renaissance Bridal to any girl looking for a wedding gown, bridesmaid dress, or prom dress. Their selection is great and their staff is knowledgeable and friendly!

I found myself free on a Friday morning went to lunch with a friend and we met in York. Being newly engaged we thought it would be fun to go try on dresses because we had nothing better to do and I wanted to start looking to get an idea of what I wanted for my big day. Our first stop was the local chain store which was so crowded it was uncomfortable. The sales people were rude and appalled I thought I could walk in without an appointment. They said we could not look in the racks but rather handed me a catalog and told me to look through that. I put the catalog down and walked out. I knew Renaissance Bridal was nearby so I called to see if I needed an appointment to come by. The woman that answered said they preferred appointments and asked when I had in mind. I asked if they were busy now because I was nearby, she said that's perfect she'd see me in 15 minutes. I arrived and instantly knew I was in better hands. The boutique is beautiful and charming upon walking in. Maggie greeted my friend and I and asked me what I had in mind for my dress. I told her I honestly didn't know I was just trying to see what looked best on my figure (I'm a 14-16-18 depending on where I shop and I wasn't sure what would work well) Maggie took the time to listen to what I did know I wanted and selected 3-4 dresses to start with. She provided honest feedback on each dress and listened again to what I thought about each of them. Taking my likes and dislikes into consideration she went back and got 3 more dresses to try. I fell in love with a dress she had picked and then she added the decorative belt and I fell even harder! With the veil, bracelet, and belt she added to the look I felt more beautiful than I thought possible! I love my dress and cannot wait to wear it this fall! Maggie was great at helping, she made us feel comfortable and was professional through the whole visit. She was fun and honest and I will be recommending her and Renaissance Bridal to anyone that asks!

I had a great experience going to Renaissance Bridal and found my dress there! I know I'm going to look beautiful and confident on the day of my wedding, which was my goal! I hoped to go to the clearance sale the next weekend, but after finding the dress I had to have it. I spent 3X what I hoped to spend, but it's a relief to be able to check a huge block on my very long wedding checklist. Thanks again!

They were very helpful. I had to go back a second time to find the dress and get the exact help I was looking for. Deb was very helpful and helped me say yes to the dress. My dress was perfect. They even steamed my dress when I had to suddenly move out of state and return for the wedding!

Although I spent a little more money than I thought I would on a dress, the staff was extremely helpful and nice. They were very professional and after just a few simple questions about my wedding and what I liked, they found dresses that suited my taste. After 5 dresses, I found the perfect one. I couldn't have asked for a better experience.

I bought my dress, veil, decorative hair piece, and decorative belt from Renaissance Bridal. Their service is great, and always made me feel like the only bride in the salon each time I went in. It's a really nice bridal boutique, which has a great, personable feel that you don't get from a big chain like David's Bridal. I was THRILLED with the outcome of my complete wedding day outfit, and received many compliments on how beautiful the dress was. Being a bridal boutique rather than a large bridal chain, the prices are somewhat high, but COMPLETELY worth it!

I purchased my bridal gown from Renaissance in August of last year. First of all, everything at Renaissance is top notch. The salon is what you picture in your mind when you think about dress shopping and was superior to others I had been to. There were a few things that I wasn't too happy about. The first was that none of the dresses were labeled so that you couldn't leave the salon and try to find the dress cheaper anywhere else. The second was the no pictures until you purchase rule, which made it difficult to chose because I wanted to see how the dress looked in photographs. Despite that, I found my dream dress here and everyone was so nice and helpful that I felt comfortable purchasing the dress. All the fittings went well, too and my dress was gorgeous on my wedding day!

My experience at Renaissance Bridal was amazing. I went there thinking I knew what I wanted but when I got there Maggie put me in dresses that she knew would look good that I didn't think I would, and I loved them. I ended up finding my perfect dress! I felt like Maggie knew exactly what I was looking for before I did.

I had gone to Renaissance Bridals in February of 2007 to look for a dress I had long dreamed of. I had searched and searched, in my (expensive) home country Japan, online, and in several bridal shops around the Lancaster area. Kathy Bateman, the lady who helped me find the dress I want, was beyond professional. She was patient, kind, and did not try to sell me something out of my reach. All of their dresses were gorgeous (with mine being, of course, the best ;) ) I felt so relieved that I had finally found the dress that I wanted, but there was only one problem. I had to go back to Japan in one week, and did not have the time for a fitting appointment. Then they came up with this wonderful plan. They asked when I was coming back to the states (June 18), when I was leaving Pennsylvania (June 22) for my San Diego/Fallbrook wedding (June 28), and suggested that I come on June 19 so that they could finish the dress by June 20 if not June 21!! They were amazing, and outstanding, and professional beyond words! Beth Smith was the lady that helped me with the fitting and the sewing in just a day and a half! AND, she did it perfectly. I did not have to go back and have things redone.

They had bent their backs backwards just to help me get the dress that I wanted. That is the kind of service any bride-to-be would appreciate. They even remember my name. They are simply outstanding. You will find $1000-2000 dresses with the quality of $4000-5000, or $10,000-$12,000 quality if you are familiar with the high Japanese standards. The dresses are exceptional, the people purely professional. And everybody, I mean everybody, loved my dress. They still talk about it to this day! I would highly, highly recommend Renaissance Bridals.

Overall I had a great experience working with them. The salesperson we had was wonderful. She helped me find the perfect dress within my budget. She listened to what I liked and didn't like and made perfect selections. I would up getting the second dress I tried on. I came back a week after I tried it on just to see it again and they let me try it on again without an appointment. Unfortunately when I went in to pick up my veil for my hair trial they gave me the wrong one and when I told them it was wrong the girl just seemed annoyed and acted like it was no big deal. They wound up just giving me someone elses that had ordered the same one as I had. So it was fixed right away but the attitude was not so great. Everything else was fine though. I like that the owners are usually there on the floor and involved. The alterations were done very well and anything that was wrong was fixed on the spot. Overall I would recommend them.

I was very happy with my experience at Renaissance Bridal. The staff treated me with friendliness and was very helpful every time I was there; from the day I was trying on gowns to each fitting I had with them. They gave me & the gown their professional attention and it fit perfectly on my wedding day.

They were happy to store my gown there until just a few days before the wedding because I didn't really have a place to keep it at my own home. They also made an exception on accommodating my schedule for my final fitting because my sister was only in town from NYC for a few days. Overall I would recommend Renaissance Bridal and I don't think you would be disappointed.

They were great! I LOVE my dress and I felt absolutely perfect walking down the aisle in it. The employees are extremely helpful, when our bridesmaids dresses came in completely wrong 3 weeks before the wedding (this wasn't Renaissance's fault, it was a mistake by the dress manufacturer), RB came to the rescue and did all of the work for us. Their staff negotiated with the dress maker to have new dresses made and got us 10% off each dress and made sure they were delivered to each bridesmaid in time for alterations. They also made sure their seamstress was available to my bridesmaids the week of the wedding just in case they needed extra alterations. The shop is really charming, lots of vintage class. My only complaint was that I had to check to make sure all of the alterations were done correctly on my dress. At my final fitting I found a few things I had requested weren't done, but the seamstress fixed these on the spot and all was fine. However, the loops that held my bustle in place weren't tight enough and my dress didn't stay bustled very well. This probably was because of how big the dress was and may not have been the seamstress' fault, in all honesty. Ultimately I am very glad I got my dress here! I went to pretty much every dress shop in central PA and tried on an insane number of dresses (I fell in love with dress shopping, everything looks fabulous on and you feel like a goddess at the end of each shopping day), RB was among the best for their excellent selection of lace dresses (which was what I wanted). I would also recommend In White in Lancaster, PA, the store owner there went above and beyond for us and if she carried my dress I would have bought it from her just for her excellent customer service. They also had a very wide selection of dress styles and price ranges. You can't go wrong at either shop!

I visited numerous bridal shops before heading to Renaissance Bridal. What a difference! The owner of the store is AMAZING! I can't even put into words how awesome he is. I ended up buying a dress that was not at all what I THOUGHT I wanted. I never would've picked this dress out on my own but he had a method for helping you. He KNOWS what he is talking about and isn't just some young sales girl trying to get you to buy every dress you put on. I had a fantastic experience at this store, from start to finish, and bought my veil and accessories there. A fabulous selection of stylish dresses at prices that won't break the bank (I don't think they have many dresses that are over $2k). If you're in the area, you MUST check them out!

Renaissance Bridals is a very authentic, local, non-commerical bridal boutique to go in to. We were warmly welcomed by the team as soon as we entered and offered coffee to get our morning started. Our attendant was very understanding, friendly and professional with fittings. After just three dresses I had found the one! It was such a fun morning! My attendant (I cannot remember her name) went to get the owner to show him the dress on me. I wish I could start the day all over and go back again..!

The people that work there were wonderful and attentive and they helped with every little detail from picking out the dress to making sure the shoes and jewelry I had chosen matched perfectly with the dress. They also were great help in picking out bridesmaids dresses and making sure all of them were fitted and altered if needed. It's a wonderful shop to get one of a kind dresses. It is expensive but if you go on a sale day --- you can find a terrific deal like I did.

Renaissance has really beautiful dresses for decent prices. The staff is somewhat snobby and any compliments they gave me didnt feel genuine--actually more like forced. I called to set up my final dress fitting and when I asked if I could come in on a weekend since I work full time they said they usually reserve those appointments for their important customers from out of town. What? Haha. But, the owners are very nice and very helpful and knowledgeable. The staff is also very knowledgeable. They have great product and a lot of unique options. I would recommend it if you don't mind a few snobby girls.

Fantastic selection of gowns and men's formal wear. Staff could be more welcoming and friendly, though Jon is fantastic to work with! I had higher expectations for a higher quality store. It would have been nice to have been offered a drink- if not wine or champagne- at least water or tea. But, the dresses are lovely, my first, second, and third choice dresses were all from Renaissance. In the end you want to love your dress- and I certainly loved mine.

Loved the dress and the experience for the most part, only thing I would change is I felt rushed from dress to dress and she didn't seem into having me try many, and you share a stand with others and I stood there for a while waiting to go up but the other people were at the headbands and I didn't want to be the one to ask them to move to the side and I ended up changing the dress before I got up there. She was very nice though and the dresses are amazing, I was a last customer though and I know how it is at the end of the night just wanting to leave.

My sister had purchased a pageant dress from Renaissance, so we decided to go back to the beautiful shop for my bridal gown. I found my gown on my very first visit! Mandy and Deborah were great and brought me a bunch of dresses that fit my asks. Everything went smoothly as far as my return visits. There are definitely a few things though that need to be worked on though.

From what I could tell, it was a management issue and not an employee issue.

The shop owner was there one weekend while I was in for a fitting. He was wearing dirty sweatpants and a t shirt. Thought this was a bit unprofessional and kind of ruined the mood of the shop.

I also think it's ridiculous that you are not allowed to know who the designer of the gown is until it is purchased. Apparently "the system doesn't reflect who made the gown, until your payment method goes through." I loved my dress, so I didn't care too, too much. However, after purchasing, I did see it on the TLC show Vows being sold for around $800 - I paid $1500. Turns out it was a design from 2010. Again, I loved it, so I didn't care. Just giving people a head's up that are looking for a new design.

Lastly - The accessories are a complete rip off. The owner of the shop was trying to persuade me to purchase a headband for $125. It was tarnished. She tried to play it off as though it were "two-toned." I'm not an idiot. Got a fabulous headband that looked exactly the same (except it wasn't "two-toned") from Charming Charlies for $10.

All in all, I found my dress and absolutely loved it. The staff made me feel beautiful, however management did kind of make me cringe. Felt like they were genuinely in it for the sale and not for the brides.

Attention brides...DO NOT GO HERE!!!!! I bought my veil from Renaissance and my dress from somewhere else because it was $500 cheaper at another bridal salon in my area. Yes, they jack up their prices THAT much! I decided to buy my veil at Renaissance because I had my “bridal moment” with that veil and it wasn’t too expensive. So my veil came in and my aunt picked it up for me since she lives in York and I live an hour away. She brings it home and notices something strange. So she takes the veil out of the package to get a better look. There was candy melted onto the veil!!!!! My aunt said it looked like sugar babies (which she doesn’t eat). My aunt didn’t bother to check the veil at the store because you would think they would check the merchandise before they even call the customer! We definitely learned our lesson. What if I didn’t take the veil out until my wedding day?! I would have been screwed. So my aunt took the veil back to the salon the next day. They claim that they check all their merchandise before they send it out. Yea right! On a positive note, they did give me a new veil.

My friend purchased her wedding gown from Renaissance Bridal and then decided to order her bridesmaids gowns from the store as well. I live 4 hours from York, PA and was unable to get to the store to try on the dress so I was given a size chart and told to get measured and choose the dress size that matched my measurements. The contract that each bridesmaid was asked to sign stated that you should purchase your dress based off of the LARGEST MEASUREMENT. Since the gown was not super form fitting, I called the store numerous times before ordering to make sure that the dress chart completely matched the measurements of the dress being ordered. I also asked two different sales associates if I should order a smaller size since the dress was not form fitting and therefore my largest size shouldn't matter as much. I was told that "yes, the size chart is true to size" and "no, order based off of your largest measurement." I was then asked to make the entire payment for the dress upfront so that they would order the dress. When my gown came in it was over 2 sizes too big and could not be altered correctly because of all of the extra fabric and the way the dress was sewn. All five bridesmaids had the same problem, our gowns were all at least 2 sizes too large. One of the bridesmaids was even measured at the store and her gown was 2 sizes too big. When I called the store to discuss my options, I was immediately taken aback by the rude, unprofessional and downright nasty behavior of the "saleswoman." When I asked to speak to a manager she informed me that she was the OWNER. She told me she did not care that the size chart was incorrect and that she would not help me and it was my fault for ordering the wrong size even though it was the size shown on the chart and her salesgirls agreed that the size I ordered was the correct size. The owner then screamed at me that the contract said the dress could not be exchanged and if I didn't like it that its "tough" and that her contract was "legal" so I couldn't do anything about it. I then spoke to the bride who not only purchased her gown at Renaissance Bridal as well as 5 bridesmaid dresses but also had her grandmother purchase a $700 gown at the store and the grooms mother purchased a gown there as well. When the bride spoke with the owner, the owner not only screamed at her and told her she didn't care how much money she spent at the store but also threatened her that she would stop alterations on her bridal gown two weeks before her wedding "if there was a problem." Not only is this company fraudulent and unprofessional but purchasing anything from this store or the woman who runs it would be making a deal with the devil. This is not a woman or a company that I would want to deal with when it comes to purchasing the most important gown you will ever wear.

My friend purchased her wedding gown from Renaissance Bridal and then decided to order her bridesmaids gowns from the store as well. I live 4 hours from York, PA and was unable to get to the store to try on the dress so I was given a size chart and told to get measured and choose the dress size that matched my measurements.

While I loved the gown, bridesmaid dresses, and shoes I got from here, I wish I could have found them somewhere else. Every time I went in to the store they made me feel like the could care less that I was there and kept forgetting who I was even when I made appointments. They were not helpful at all through the entire process.

When my group purchased the bridesmaid dresses, they said they would send me a swatch of the material that I could use for matching purposes with florists, bakery etc. They said it would come in about two weeks. One month later, nothing. I called and they re-ordered it and then it took another three weeks to come in the mail.

The alterations also went wrong. One bridesmaid paid $45 to have her dress taken in, and it was still hanging off her on the wedding day. My jr. bridesmaid paid $60 to have straps put on her dress and we ended up fixing them at home because they were poorly sewn in, and one strap was longer than the other!

Also, the shoes that I spent $90 on did not make it through the rehearsal. The heel caps came off and the nails pushed down through the heels. I had to take it to a local shoe repair shop to have them fixed the morning of my wedding because when we called Renaissance they would do nothing about it. They gave us the number of the manufacturer and when we called the manufacturer they said they don't deal with the public and the bridal shop would have to replace or reimburse the shoes. Nothing like getting the run around!

I have been to other bridal shops in the area (for example Lilla's) and received much better service. For example, Lilla's made me feel special even when I was just a bridesmaid in a friends wedding. They are kind, helpful, and do an great job on alterations. I wish I would have found my dress there instead.

Bottom line: If you want your wedding dress experience to be special, stress- free, and you don't want to be treated like a seco
