Not too sure about the Bridal side but the Tuxedo side is absolutely horrendous. I went to Russels Tuxedo after calling in advance and asking do I need an appt. I was told they accept walk ins and I would be able to have my groomsmen try on a tux. When I got there, the owner asked me am I serious about purchasing from them or am I price matching. Strike 1. Then he told me I needed an appt when I was told no on the phone I didn't and he couldn't seem to grasp the concept of me wanting to see how the tuxes fit on ALL my groomsmen and not just me. His response was "It's your day, who cares how anyone else looks." Strike 2. After reluctantly taking my groomsmen in, I didn't like the cut of the tux on him so the owner responded "We don't care how it looks on them." Strike 3. I told him to take everything back and I'll be taking my business elsewhere. Very rude and unprofessional and to make matters worse he had other customers in there as well and those were the responses he said out loud. Do not go to them unless your willing to hand them over money and not care about how anyone in your wedding party looks.

I went there with 2 images of dresses that I was interested in; however they did not have that particular dress. Veronica was able to pull a few for me to try on, some that I was horrified by, but when I put them on they were gorgeous. I fell in love with one dress the moment I tried it on. Tried it on again later and knew it was "the one". Had my first fitting about 2 weeks ago and the seamstress was a doll as well. She was very happy that there was minimal work that had to be done.

The staff at the bridal side and tuxedo were WONDERFUL! The pricing was totally reasonable and the staff was great. The tuxedo staff were awesome as well-they worked with us since a lot of groomsmen were out of state.

I would NOT recommend going to men's warehouse or any of those chain tux places....I have heard HORROR stories about bad alterations and the store not being able to accomodate to get a tux that fits for the day of the wedding...that's where Russell's came in--they saved me from having a meltdown!! They actually last minute got a tux for someone who experienced that with Men's warehouse.

I am the Mother of the Bride and I have bought my gowns for all 3 of my
children's wedding, plus they bought their prom dresses and tuxes. Erica is so very knowledgeable and if you tell her what you are interested in, she will most definitely pick out the style of several dresses that you would like. I recently just went to pick out my gown for my daughter's wedding in Pennsylvania, and Erica had already chosen 6 gowns, which all were truly beautiful. But the first one I tried on was GORGEOUS, and bought it. The entire staff is truly caring, the have LOTS of wedding gowns for the bride, more than any other place I know, and believe me I have been to many. They are honest and supportive in what looks best on you and the prices are so much better than lots of other stores. The bridal gown section is enormous. I can't say enough about how wonderful this place is!! I went to other bridal stores in the area, and there is no comparison in Russell's willingness to find the dress of your dreams!

Sue, Erica and the rest of the staff were fantastic. Russell's Bridal has a large and very nice selection of dresses and accessories. They kept me informed of dresses that I liked that were going to be discontinued before I made my final decision. They were able to get my dress even though they didn't carry the designer. I would recommend.

Overall this vendor was good. The only incident we had was that the bride's maid's dresses came in very close to the date of the wedding and not when promised. The staff was very courteous and overall we got what we wanted at a very good price. I would recommend them.

Russell's Bridal was AMAZING. From the moment I walked through their doors and met their staff I knew I was going to find my dress. The staff there took my input and overall idea of what kind of dress I was looking for and brought back many different kinds.

I had already tried on so many dresses, so some was repetitive, but they did not give up on me. I'm also a PLUS SIZE bride and so even being slightly limited in my options they were very accomodating and assured me they had something for EVERYONE. They were RIGHT!! When she brought out the dress I chose, I wasn't sure about it on the hanger. It wasn't until I had it all on that I knew.

I was a little stressed about my veil (I was told it should have arrived before my dress but was much later than orginally planned and I got it very close to my wedding which caused some stress), but they answered my calls and looked into things for me each time I called them. Thank You!

My dress ended up needing some last minute alterations and I was so upset because closer to wedding day it had gotten pretty tight. The seamstress assured me they would be able to fix it even in the time crunch, and they did! It did not disappoint and I had the fairtale dress I had always dreamed of thanks to them.

I HIGHLY recommend you go out there and give them a try. They have things for all budgets and they're very professional and helpful! I would use them again and again in the future for special events.

I am getting married in about a week and used Russell's for the bridesmaids dresses. I can't even begin to tell you how much stress they've caused me and how much inconvenience they've put my girls through. They get 2 stars because they have a good selection that's about all that's good. We picked out and ordered dressed in March and were told they'd be in in June. They did not arrive until the last week of July. Any time I called to ask for an update about their arrival time they were extremely rude gave me an attitude and told me they'd be in next week which was never true until the last time I called. Being so delayed my girls only had 2 weeks to get in for their first fittings, and most of them have now had to go back 3-4 times each because every time there is something wrong. All of the zippers on the dresses looks horrendous after the first fittings and they tried to tell most of them oh well we can't do anything about it. My wedding is 1 week away and 3 of my girls are still going on their 3rd or 4th fittings this week to make sure they didn't screw anything else up.

Some background on me. I'm extremely easygoing and not at all picky. I'm also always optimistic so for me to be writing this review you know they really upset me. Worst part of my whole experience was how rude they were to me when I would call to check in on things. There are many places to get bridesmaid dresses, please save yourself the added stress and skip Russell's I sure wish I did!

I got my bridal gown, bridesmaids' dresses and rented my nephew's tux all from Russell's.
Theresa was there to help me every time, and I am so glad I met her. She completely understood what I was looking for in a gown. I had shown her pictures of what I had wanted and she took it from there. The gown she put me in (& the one I fell in love with) was not something I was originally looking for but it was perfect! She definitely knew what she was doing.
When I went back to look for bridesmaid dresses, the girl who we first asked for help pretty much just told us to look for ourselves, which we didn't like. But then Theresa saw us and came over and helped us again to find the perfect dress to fit my 2 bridesmaids who were completely different in shape & size. She even helped to find my mom a dress (although for other reasons, she did not end up buying it).
They were great with pricing as well, and have a great deal that if you rent a tux (& even though I only needed one) they gave both my bridesmaids free alterations! My alterations were already free. Only issue with them was they only did fittings during the week.
The tux shop is together, but separate from the bridal shop, and I did not like the tux shop very much. First, the girl was supposed to ring my sister up for a deposit on my nephews tux and "accidentally" charged her for the whole tux instead. Also, when I told her I wanted him to have a white shirt, and my dress was a little off-white (white to the naked eye), she told me that I was going to look dirty and who told me that would look good cuz it won't. I did NOT appreciate that! Then when we went to pick up my nephews tux, everything was wayyy too big! I don't understand how, when they measured him, and then they had the nerve to try and roll up the sleeves and pants & say it'll be okay. My sister said absolutely not, and then they agreed to give him a different tux but c'mon!
All in all - bridal shop - great, tux shop - not so much!

I'm so happy I went to Russell's for my dress. Sue was amazing and walked me through 2 days of trying on dresses to find the right one. She really nailed my style while staying within our modest budget of $1500. The selection of gown was great. I ordered some pattern changes to the dress, and Russell's got it done at a discount from the manufacturer. They also discounted the veil and headpiece. And, alterations were included in the price of the dress. The guys also got their texes there, and that department also knew their stuff. For the quality, the value, and especially the service, Russell's can't be beat!

STAY AWAY FROM RUSSELL'S!!! Dealt with them for a year. They made mistakes in ordering my bridesmaids' dresses (which I happen to catch and correct). However, I Just picked up my bridal party's gowns and they have defects. The lining of the dresses peaks through when they sit and it looks horrible. I understand that this may be an issue from the manufacturer but they should not offer to sell you such manufacturers if the quality is poor. Also, they swapped my mom and my sister's measurements and so now my sister's dress is too large and my mom's does not fit. I get the impression that they just care about making money and do not really care about hiring at least somewhat competent people to work for them.

Russell's Bridal went above and beyond my expectations. I worked specifically with Erica. She is an expert in the wedding dress industry and on my very first appointment she found me the perfect gown. Each gown she pulled was along what I was looking forward, was in my price range and fit my body type perfectly. She never pressured me into a dress, she was like a friend I had for year's. Erica makes you feel comfortable and like the bride you always wanted to be while trying on gowns. If you go to Russell's be sure to ask specifically for Erica. She will make sure you have a great experience.

I knew exactly what dress I wanted, now it was just a matter of finding a dress shop that carried it. I went to two different stores before I stuck with Russell's. It is a family run business that has been in the area for over 50 years. Alternations were included in the price of the dress, and with my research turned out to be the best price for everything. I had 3 fittings, and the last one was a week before the wedding. They were able to alter everything in a timely fashion. They also packed it wonderfully for travel to my destination wedding. When I opened the bag the day of my wedding everything was perfectly hung and no wrinkles! The dress fit like a glove and I couldn't be happier.

I worked primarily with Erica who was fantastic, she pulled THE dress that was different than I pictured and absolutely perfect. She is really sweet, always upbeat and positive, and helped talk me off the ledge after a disastrous first fitting. All of the ladies are nice, and I spent a LOT Of time there over the planning process since we ordered my gown, veil and bolero, my mom's gown, and all of the bridesmaid gowns, as well as the guys’ tuxes from the tux shop side. They also offer a service where the consultant will come to you on the day of to help everyone get dressed, and it was nice to have Erica there to help lace me up on the day.

Russell's Bridal provided my wedding dress, bridesmaids dresses, groomsmen tuxedos and my groom's suit. I loved my dress and Erika was an amazing rep to work with! My only issue is that my bridesmaid's dresses were not all tailored the correct way/length. Their shoes were also not ready in time, so they had to picked up the day of! My grooms's shirt was not fitted correctly, which caused us to lose an hour of photography time on our wedding day, so that we could get all the issues fixed. For your wedding dress, I recommend them, but for everything else, not so much.

I purchased my wedding dress as well as 7 bridesmaids dresses and the groomsmen's tuxedos all at Russell's. I have to say that the bridesmaids dresses were completely unorganized. Timeliness for fittings were a nightmare and the seamstress completely botched my junior bridesmaid's dress! I was very disappointed at all the mistakes and unprofessionalism from the staff considering that I paid in full for my dress and several of the bridesmaids dresses before the alterations were even made, and the alterations were screwed up. They need more help and more organization in this place. The owner never came to meet me, and the first time I ever spoke with her she told me that "Frankly, I thought this wedding was cancelled" despite my full payment and reasonable understanding of all the mistakes leading up to this moment. It is a wonder that this place is still in business. Erica is a fantastic help, but these people gave me nothing but a headache in the two weeks before my wedding. The owner is one of the rudest women I've ever met in my life. The staff lied and kept my bridesmaids waiting while they did alterations seconds before the fitting. If you want to be lied to, disrespected, and have your wedding day considered "CANCELLED" by the owner of the business you just gave thousands of dollars to, then Russell's Bridal is for you!

most of russels workers are very helpful and strive to make everything as perfect as you would like. the timing for the dresses and veils cut it close and tend to come in 3 weeks after they originally tell you. My bridesmaids had a very hard time with alterations, they all had to go back multiple times for items being sewn wrong or not correctly. I had no problems with the alterations on my dress, my bustle didnt hold but that could be Maggie Sotteros fault.

The tuxedo department seemed to be much better prepared. The workers were all very helpful and made sure that all the measurements for the 21 men who needed tuxs were all correct.

I went specifically to Russell's Bridal for a few reasons: 1) they have been around a long time, 2) they carried plus size wedding gown samples (which is hard to find) and 3) reputation. I was not disappointed. Being plus sized, it was nice to try on gowns and really know how they looked. The 5th dress I tried on, I knew it was 'the one'! Everything was smooth sailing from there...the fittings went great and the dress, and I...looked beautiful. I also had 8 bridesmaids and had found the dress I wanted, but they didn't have it. They were able to get it in and work with all of my girls until everyone looked great. I would highly recommend them!

My wife found Russell's Bridal & Tuxedo because they were the only ones that had the dress she wanted. They also had the bridesmaids dresses that she wanted as well. We also ended up getting the grooms, groomsmen and father of the bride's tuxedos there as well, and since the guys all got their attire there, the bridesmaids got their alterations for free. We are very happy with all aspects of attire for our wedding.

Russell's was the only bridal salon in the tri-state area to have an obscure dress that I had found online. I am so glad that I made the trip to Russell's because after trying on upwards of 30 dresses the one I fell in love with online was the one! They were very flexible with my schedule since I was traveling an hour and a half. The staff was also very forthcoming with good advice.

Flawless. I searched everywhere for a specific gown and when I called Russell's, Sue told me she'd find it for me and have it in couple days. I went in put it on and fell in love. They beat the discount price I found online and put up with me when I changed my mind about the date and then when I changed my mind about the bridesmaids dresses! My girls and I looked gorgeous and our dresses fit perfect!

Sue, Silvia and everyone at Russells were great.
My gown fit me perfectly. All the bridesmaids’ dresses were altered perfectly as well.
The people at Russell’s went out of their way to get my dress since it was a style they didn’t carry and beat a competitor’s price.
Great value.

Alfred Angelo had a trunk show at Russell's just under two years before my wedding. The first dress I tried on, I fell in love with! I went back the next day and put my deposit on it. The only problem I had was that my dress got stuck in customs coming from overseas so my first fitting had to be pushed back. I also got my dress and veil cleaned and preserved there! Sue is the GREATEST! She was such a pleasure to deal with! I would marry my husband again and again just to go back and be able to see the staff at Russells!
