I purchased a dress from their annual sample sale in January. The attendants were very helpful and immediately knew when I fell in love with the dress. I was exatic to have found a dress and at 50% off! However, I recently called to find out about alterations and was told the dress must be altered and picked up no later than may 1st. My receipt was covering the part of the instructions that stated this. My wedding is in August and i am going to the gym regularly in hopes to shed a few pounda before then. Although this was a stated policy on their sample sale gowns i dont find it right that they will not do alterations past may. I may have purchased the dress at a discount but I will still be paying for alterations in full. Was not happy with this detail and so will not be doing alteratations at Ritche. Otherwise the buying experience was ok at the time. Jusy glad i was able to find a dress and was not rushed during an appointment.

This was the first bridal store I came to . The consultant that I was booked with ( an older woman, I think she had blonde hair.), walked by my mother & I , gave us a good look...I smiled at her thinking she was going to greet us...she just kept walking by. Very rude. I ended up with someone completely different than who I booked with.
This was a younger woman, dark brown hair, very friendly and understanding.
I asked if there was a limit to the number of dresses I can try, but never got an answer. There were certain adjustments that I asked about regarding a certain dress I wanted, so the young lady helping me went and asked the other woman that we originally had the appointment with. Every time I asked about a specific product or addition that could be made to the dress, she told the young lady to tell my mother and I that they didnt have it or couldn't even order it.
There were other dresses in the store that would have liked to try that were within my budget, however I was not shown them. I don't appreciate the way my mother and I were treated by the older woman in the store, and the fact that she didn't allow the girl helping me to take anymore dresses in the room. I could hear them talking sometimes when we waited . I don't know what her problem is, but it is obvious she is in the wrong business.
Advice for brides, NEVER settle for a dress unless you have tried on everything you want. If you have to book another consultation, then do it, but don't let anyone push you. I would not recommend this store, due to the experience I had.

I had an incredible experience at Ritche Bridal. I originally found my gown at Kleinfeld, but was told that they could not get my dress in on time (went early October, wedding was end of March). Devastated, I went to Ritche the following day to look for another dress. After hearing about the dress I loved, the sales person contacted one of their designer reps to see if they could bring in my dress from the US. Not only were they able to locate it, but they brought it in within a month (on rush order). I was able to get a gown that they do not sell, but I got it approximately $500 cheaper than at Kleinfelds.
The alteration service was also amazing. The staff and seamstress was always so helpful and reassured me every step of the way. They really helped make my experience there a very positive one.
I have already recommended this store to a friend who also ended up buying her wedding dress there.
Thank you Riche!

I had the worst experience any Bride could ever had. first my appointment was suppose to be at 11, Had car problems and called to ask if i can move the appointment a few minutes later and i was told no, when i make it for the appointment they will just eat into my time, got there at 11:15 so i only had 45minutes with the Consultant. I gave her the styles numbers that i liked, she did not ask for my size or measure me so she went and brought me all small sizes that i couldn't fit him. didn't ask for my wedding date, didn't make any conversation or ask questions pertaining to what i like. I asked her to bring the styles that i liked in my size, she said they did not have any. She kept on bringing one dress at a time and would go and leave me for about 5 minutes then comes back with something completely not my style. In the end i found a gown that i loved, tried it on as a last dress but could not get it because i was told the appointment was done. At the end of the appointment i was given a card with email address to email if i had any questions and that was the end of the appointment. I really Love the dress but the service was so bad. We were not even greeted at the beginning or acknowledged at the end.

Ritche is a lovely bridal salon. I shopped around a bit before deciding to buy my dress at Ritche, and it was so refreshing to go into a salon that actually wants you to enjoy your experience! Florence in alterations worked so hard to make my dress fit me perfectly, and she was so sweet.

They were great, I felt like the alterations were expensive, however, it was well done. I got many compliments on my dress and the dress fit like a glove... the women that work there were very friendly and kind and treated me and my family well

I purchased my dress at Ritche in March 2013. I had an appointment with Cori, which I booked via email, however when I arrived I spoke with Sanja and was informed that Cori was not working that day and there was no record of my appointment being scheduled. My immediate reaction was disbelief and anger because that's just not what I expected from a business that has been around so long.

Sanja was incredibly accommodating. She saw that I was panicked (I had my mother, sister, aunt, future mother in law, and a bridesmaid with me) and immediately told me not to worry and that she would personally take care of my appointment. I had a great experience with her. She helped me narrow down my ideas and brought me dresses that I never would have thought of to try on, one of which ended up being "the" dress! I would recommend Ritche to a friend but I would advise them to make their appointments over the phone or in person.

So far the alterations department has been great as well! They really know what they're doing and have been accommodating in letting me wait until my second fitting appointment before deciding whether to take in my dress or not.

I had a fantastic experience at Ritche with my mom, MoH and one of my bridesmaids. The rooms were great. Lots of privacy and the consultant can clamp you into the dress before your entourage gets a look at you in it. You'll appreciate this when you go other places where you have to walk out of the dressing room holding up or trying to snausage yourself into a dress (I had to do both at other places). I went in looking to try on 3 specific dresses and after I realized they weren't the right ones, I let the consultant put me in something along the same lines as what I was looking for, but a little softer. It took me about 5 seconds before I knew it was the dress. There were tears and it was awesome. It was a little more than I wanted to spend, but well within the range I gave the consultant at the beginning of the appointment. I can't wait to go back and put it on again! I bought in mid-August and they told me it'll be in by December which gives me lots of time before my wedding :)

I went there to look for bridesmaids dresses and decided to make an appointment for myself the day before. The staff member I dealt with was very kind and convinced me to try on a style of dress that I was dead set against from the beginning of my dress search. That dress ended up being the one I bought and I couldn't have been happier. I was really happy to be able to get a discount on my dress although I was disappointed with some aspects of shopping for the bridesmaids dresses there. All in all, I'd recommend a friend to go there but not for bridesmaids attire.
