I really loved the wedding dress that I bought from here, but overall my experience was just okay. The service was good, and Denise was very helpful to me with dressing me and matching veils, but I would have liked a little bit more interaction and advice from her, as a professional, than I ended up getting.

The selection Savvi provides is great, with some very reasonable prices, and the dresses are beautiful. However, once all the shipping fees and alterations and extras are tacked on, the dress I chose was a LOT more expensive than I had expected it to be. The dress I picked was under $900, but I ended up paying over $1500 by the end -- and that was BEFORE alterations. Not only this, but the fact that I had to have alterations at all made me a little bit frustrated, since I paid $125 extra for the dress to be made to MY proportions, rather than just choosing a set size like a 4 or a 6.

The one good thing I can say about Savvi is that they were able to find me a dress that I liked and make it into one that I loved. I found a pretty strapless dress, but the top wasn't a cut I liked and the ribbon around the middle wasn't my style. They were able to change the top of the dress from straight across to a sweetheart neckline and put a new ribbon on that I liked better; this is because all of their dresses are made to order, not pre-made and then altered to fit a bride. This was definitely a positive.

However, another thing I didn't like is that, as far as I know, they don't do alterations here. This includes a bustle, steaming & pressing, etc. I had to go to another bridal shop to get all those done. In the end, I really loved my dress, but what I didn't love was the experience and value.

I had a great experience! Their dresses are quality and affordable as well as having kind and attentive associates to work with! They also have a great selection of current and trendy gowns to choose from. Everything we needed was cared for and received on time! My dress fit wonderfully and I was very pleased with everything. I will definitely recommend this Savvi!

I must say I was concerned about ordering this dress online as I felt that the size and the quality of the item would perhaps disappoint me. The dress arrived for my daughter and she was absolutely delighted with the colour, the quality of the matieral and the craftsmanship. The dress fits perfectly.The customer service was particularly impressive as we knew at all stages what was happening with the product.this is dress from 58bridesmaid.com

I loved the dress that I ordered from savvy, but was less than enthused about picking it out one time. When I wanted a dress in 5 months, they were very condescending about what they could get in on time. After the initial pick, though, the service was excellent and I enjoyed the store when I went to try it on and such. Overall I was super happy with the dress and the overall service was good too.

For our wedding we worked with the Savvi Formalwear in Ridgedale mall and they did a great job making sure we got exactly what we wanted for our wedding. We originally were going to have the guys purchase suits, however were unable to because several of the guys were not able to fit into the purchase suits. We then had to change last minute to rentals and Savvi made sure we got something very comparable and for a good price. Everyone we worked with at the Ridgedale Savvi was very professional, courteous, and helpful it was a great experience. The only minor complaint I have is that several of the groomsmen required alterations on the day they picked up their suits and one of them had to get an entirely new shirt because there was a rip in it. All of these were minor issues and all were resolved prior to the wedding but I would recommend to future grooms/brides that the guys pick up their rentals with plenty of time to allow for issues such as these. Overall I would highly recommend Savvi to future couples.

Savvi was very accommodating and was able to order the dress I wanted (which I had seen at another store). After meeting Denise, I wanted to work with her to order my wedding dress. She was very helpful throughout the whole process and we were able to get all the groomsmen tuxes here as well!

We liked the styling of the tux and the staff were helpful and willing to take the time to make things exactly as we wanted them. They were very polite and we - eventually - got things right.

My only concern is that I had to really push hard for them to get me a jacket that fitted properly. They were insistent that they had measured correctly, but they hadn't. The jacket was pulling just enough at the waist to look bad and the sleeves were too short. I am in my mid fifties and have worn countless tuxes on stage.

The young woman was fixated on my shoulders and didn't see that the waist was way too tight. Yes, in an ideal world the shoulders would have come in 1/4 inch, but there is no way a mall based unit like Savvi is going to be able to do that sort of tweaking. So the best compromise is to make sure you don't look like a sausage.

I had to spend 15 minutes on a very busy Friday convincing them. True, they were polite at every turn, but a less experienced groom would have been walked down the aisle with a tux that was pulled at the back.

The shoes were miserable. Absolutely miserable. They hurt on the top the sides and the bottom. I have blisters. If you order shoes, buy Dr. Scholls and wear a second set under the dress socks. The Savvi shoes absolutely affected my enjoyment of the event in a very negative way.

All in all, miles better than Men's Wearhouse, but I think Savvi still has the feeling of "get 'em out the door." Much room for improvement.

Nice styling on the shawl collar though. Everybody loved that.

Great to work with! Very helpful when deciding on an outfit, sent emails to remind me of certain deadlines, and very easy to get fitted or call in with measurements. The staff at Ridgedale mall was so friendly, would definitely go back!

I got the guys tuxedos from here. They had so many colors to choose from and were flexible with me when I wanted to change. There prices were much lower compared to other rental locations. Go see them in a bridal show!
