I was recently married September 2016 and was very happy with my experience at Russell's. The entire bridal party's attire was from there including myself and groom. It's so much easier that they have tuxedos right next door as well.

I had a HUGE bridal party go here to get both their tuxes and bridesmaid dresses ( over 20 people) I would expect giving them thousands of $$ of business would somehow ensure good service - NOPE.
My bridesmaids complained how the staff was rude to them & difficult when obtaining appointments. Their alteration hours are very limited & a few of my girls went to their appointments & had to wait as they weren't done with their dresses. One of the girls dresses had a stain on it & Another of my girl was given THE WRONG dress to try on to alter & had to go back.
My biggest complaint is that I gave 10 belts to be fastened on the dresses that I paid for. I dropped them off before the dresses were in & wrote down instructions. When my girls went to go, they called me & told me they were no belts on the dress. II called the store & the seamstress had no idea that all dresses were supposed to have belts, just the MOH dresses, yet I dropped off TEN belts. also they placed the belts crooked and had to fix.
I sent my groom & his boys (12 ppl) to the men's side thinking that it was a deal the girls alterations would be free then. It was ok but when they went to go pick up the tuxes 2 days before the wedding, none of the ties were in. If I didn't check for them, they would have let us leave. The girl didn't work there & was nice but had no idea. It was very stressful thing to deal with right before the wedding. We had to wait til the day before the wedding to pick them up, I don't understand I placed this order in October those ties should have been ready when we were told. 2 days before my actual wedding is more than cutting it close- but meanwhile we didn't get them until the day before !
Seriously Russell's was one of the worst vendors of my wedding. It makes me look bad to my bridal party when they all had complaints about this place. Please take my advice & don't do business here. I expect much better for such a huge bridal party- NONE of them will do business with them

I got my dress (Maggie Sottero) from Russell’s. Pat helped me pick out the dress and with all of my fittings. She was wonderful and always made me feel comfortable. I loved that she knew me when I would walk in. I would recommend Russell’s Bridal.

Words can not express how outstanding Russell's Bridals and Tuxedos has been to myself and my family over the years. Sue from Russell's helped me pick out my prom gown, college formal gown, and now my wedding gown. Russell's also provided our tuxes for the men, my mother's gown, and the flower girl's dress. They helped me match everyone's attire perfectly. Even the flower girl's dress was paired perfectly with my gown. My mother's gown had to be customized and tailored to work well with a motorized wheelchair. They were SO accomodating for her, even allowing her to test the dress with the wheelchair, and helping her get in and out of the dress while trying it on. My dress needed a lot of work, too. The seamstress was outstanding! I cannot thank them enough for all they have done!

I highly recommend going with Russell's for your attire needs!

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.
