Kathy is SO helpful and sweet! I found the dress of my dreams and felt like a complete princess trying it on. All of her attention was on me and I wasn't rushed like at other bridal shops. It was a lovely experience. I wouldn't recommend any other place more than Simply Grand.

My daughter and I went to Simply Grand as a first stop for a bridal gown. The ladies were attentive and allowed me to dress my daughter. It made me feel a part of the process as we are excited to experience choosing a bridal dress together. When we needed help in fitting, they were right there with excellent service in fitting. The size of the shop is smaller in comparison to other stores so my daughter didn't feel exposed to the world trying on multiple gowns. When we visited a larger store just walking in the door gave us negative feelings. But Emily stuck with it and tried on 6-7 gowns. We were shocked by how big they made her look and when we looked at the price tag we did an immediate exit. On returning to Simply Grand the decision was between 2 dresses. Because the decision was difficult the ladies encouraged Emily to go back and forth trying each one on. There was no pressure to hurry even as other customers came and went. When the final decision was made, Emily had a gorgeous dress, reasonably priced and we did it in one day! Kudos to Simply Grand.

This is a nice little bridal shop and their dressing area is in the back so it's a little more discreet than other shops. The attendant asked me what I liked and selected a few dresses in addition to the ones I asked to try on. One of her choices was the one I decided on--she was very good at helping me choose dresses and she was very kind. The dress I was trying on was a little too big, so she clipped it to see what it would look like fitted, but she also clipped the front so I could see the back, which other places didn't offer to do for me. The price was great & I was really happy with the experience.

I walked into this boutique without an appointment after a long day of being discouraged and working with people looking down their nose at my budget and not having any samples in my size that would suit someone under the age of forty. The saleswoman worked with me despite not having a appointment, asked for my budget, asked for what I was looking for in a dress, and showed me six dresses to choose from that met all of my requirements. She didn't try to push anything on me outside my budget, and I walked out of the store with a brand new sample off the rack. Perfect experience! It's a small store, but they had a lot to choose from.

Kathy at Simply Grand, as well as her business associate, were the best to work with! We visited other bridal shops for dresses and no one can compare to the service, price and friendly atmosphere you will find at Simply Grand. This is the 2nd wedding dress we've purchased from Simply Grand. I have three daughters and both have absolutely loved shopping at Simply Grand. My first daughter chose a long gown that fit her personality and wishes to the T. My second daughter chose the cutest short wedding dress that I had ever seen. It was the most fun, bouncy and super cute dress you can imagine. Everyone was amazed at how that dress was perfectly made just for her. Kathy showed us the dress and the bride was thinking, no, that's not me, too bouncy, but after she tried it on along with a few other short dresses and saw herself in photos afterwards, she totally agreed that it was the perfect dress. She loved it so much and seeing the grooms face when her saw her was absolutely priceless. Simply Grand cannot be beat as far as service and a shop that truly cares about brides. My other daughter can hardly wait for her turn!

Kathi was fantastic to work with! She takes all of the stress out of the gown process. We also rented our tuxedos through her, which was great as well. A few things came in the wrong size, but they were quickly exchanged or accomidated to get the right fit. My dress came early, in exactly the right size. There were some customizations on the attached fabric I had done through the alterations business next door, of which I wouldn't necessarily "reccommend" her, but I don't not reccomend her either. It may just be a conflict of personalities. I like everyone who work at Kathi's shop - they are all wonderful!

I bought my wedding dress at Simply Grand and they were fabulous to work with. First of all, the day I came in to try on dresses I brought an entourage of 10 people (including myself). This was a lot for their shop, so I felt a little bad, but I really wanted my family there. They were very accomodating to everyone and helpful, Kathy was actually the one who ended up picking out the dress I'd choose in the end. Simply Grand also did my alterations and they did a wonderful job. :D

I found this shop by walking past it on a Sunday when she was closed. She saw me looking in the window and let me in! I tried on dozens of dresses (on her day off) and made an appointment to come back on another Sunday to make my final decision and fitting. Kathy was super easy to deal with, she didn't put any pressure on me, and her prices are great!

The moment we walked in the door we were greeted, and treated so nice. She was extremely helpful in finding me a dress, patient, and accommodating. It feels good to purchase from vendors that have great customer service and like what they do.

I loved this dress shop! I went in with about three dresses that I wanted to try on. They helped me pick out at least ten more to try on just to compare. They actually picked out the dress that I ended up buying. Very friendly, very helpful. They work on any budget.

We ordered bridal attendant gowns through this vendor. The gowns were beautiful. The shop is small and did not have the variety of things we were hoping to find but we were able to order what we wanted. It would have been less stressful if there were more dresses in different sized to choose from so we didn't have to guess and later alter for size. Staff was nice and helpful but seemed a little distracted and could have been more attentive. However, if I had to do it over again, I would still choose this vendor for the gowns and would have used them for the bridal gown instead of the vendor I chose.

I would highly recommend Simply Grand. The two ladies that helped me were very pleasant to work with. I'm sorry that I can not remember their name. I came across their booth at the Salem Bridal Show in 2007. Their booth was extremely busy with a lot of girls trying on dresses. Despite these two ladies being extremely busy, I was never ignored. They were very attentive and helpful. I hadn't planned on actually getting a dress, I was just trying dresses on for fun and then I found "the one". I felt as if the two ladies were just as excited and thrilled as I was, like they had just found the perfect dress for themselves also. I decided to go home and think about it before I made a decision. They wrote down the information on the dress. When I returned the next day to the bridal show, they immediately recognized me. They didn't even need to pull the card on the information of the gown, they remembered what one it was. They let me try it on again. They gave me the discount that they were offering for purchasing a gown at the show. They gave me the discount for purchasing a sample but decided to order me a brand new dress instead. The whole time that my dress was being shipped they kept me informed. As soon as it arrived they called me and when I came in they had me try it on and they took pictures for me since I was by myself. They do offer alterations but I'm not sure if it is in their shop or not. I didn't need any alterations on my gown except for the bustle. Since my wedding was still a little ways away they gave me the seamstress's phone number to schedule an appointment closer to the date. Since my wedding ended up being postponed and I moved from that area, I do not know anything about the seamstress. When I was in their shop, I noticed that they do offer a wide variety of dresses in different price ranges. Their shop is very neat and organized. In my experience, Simply Grand offered tremendous customer service. I would definitely do business with them again.

I went all over Oregon in search of the perfect wedding dress. Tried on hundreds and nothing worked. But then I went to Simply Grand. They were so helpful. She picked out 1 dress for me. I tried it on and it was the one. She really had a good eye for what would look good on me. I have heard similar stories from others about Simply Grand.

I went in to Simply Grand after having been to a few shops. I had begun to believe that I was different, that I would not be a girl who would try on a dress and just know it , "this is the dress!!" . I spent a hour or two there trying on dresses of all styles with all different veil possibilities when it happened. I had found "the dress". Kathy at Simply Grand was so nice and helpful and most of all patient. She didn't give me the feeling of a sales person just trying to make a sale like the other salons had. I told her I needed to sleep on it a night as to not rush into it. Wedding dresses are expensive. She said she knew I would be back because she had doing this for a long time and could tell when a dress was "the dress". She was right. We went back the next day to buy it. It's all I could think about. She special ordered a veil she said would be perfect for it and it was...it really was. She gave me a good deal on the dress and veil and was very helpful to my 4 bridesmaids in picking out their best style of dress. They all enjoyed her too. Would go to her again if my husband and I ever get remarried. Would stongly recommend Simply Grand as well!!

Simply Grand is a terrific resource for Salem brides! My daughter tried on a number of dresses here and the staff were very helpful in showing her options within our budget. Since we were just starting to shop we didn't get one here the first time we visited, and later found one in Beaverton. But when we went to the fall wedding showcase at the fairgrounds, my daughter found the absolutely perfect dress from Simply Grand at a great sale price, so we had to get it! They referred us to a wonderful seamstress for the alterations that were needed. We also used Simply Grand for the men's tuxedo rentals, as they have a good selection and the best prices we found.

The gals at Simply Grand are wonderful! So helpful when looking for a dress and very patient - willing to let you try on every dress in the store if you have to! They were helpful each time I went back for a fitting and were very flexible when scheduling fittings and to pick up the dress.

I loved my dress! The only problem was I felt pressured to make a decision right away, and I felt like the lady helping me thought it was a chore to let me try on a bunch of dresses. I only tried on 5 and ended up choosing one of them, I loved it, but I wish I could have tried a few more styles. We ended up adding on to the dress, and they were very accommodating by finding extra fabric that matched so we could do that, and it ended up looking nice. It would be good if they could start doing that for people in their alterations department, though.

What a wonderful experience. I bought my dress and veil here and was not disappointed. My dress arrived 3 months earlier than projected and my veil was custom made in under a month. The staff is so helpful and friendly, and were able to put me in touch with my amazing seamstress~!
