This boutique was the first place we looked and we found the dress! The selection was outstanding! We were quite pleased with our consultant, CRUZ, who we feel was just priceless, so sweet and very helpful in finding a dress. She deserves the highest praise and a raise, best asset to your company in our opinion! She made the experience a wonderful one since both me (mother of the bride) and bride (my daughter) flew into Florida to visit my parents who live there during the winter months so grandparents could be involved as well. I was a bit nervous going to a place I wasn't familiar with to pick out a wedding dress but there were absolutely NO problems from the time we ordered to now when the dress has been delivered to them by the manufacturer. My daughter received a call that it had arrived and it was a even a little bit before the estimated date given to us. They have done exactly what they told us from day one. I would definitely recommend them to anyone who wants a fabulous experience in finding their special wedding dress. Ask for CRUZ, she's excellent!!

I first went to another bridal boutique and was shocked by their selection and prices. They maybe had 20 dresses and the least expensive one was 4,000. When I called Something Blue to make my appointment I was a bit nervous at first because I didn't know what to expect. The lady who answered the phone was so kind, gracious, and expressed how excited she was to meet my family and I. Once I walked in, Joan was such a great help! She showed me their endless selection of bridal gowns and their prices are so reasonable. I am so thankful that I found my dress at Something Blue! Everyone there was so kind, and accommodating! I highly recommend this bridal boutique to every bride!

I had read all of the great reviews about this boutique on WW so I decided to go here for my bridesmaid's dresses. Ordering the dresses was a good experience, but once the dresses came in 4 months later, the customer service seemed to go out the window. Instead of calling the bridesmaids to tell them their dresses were ready to be picked up-they called me (the bride). I didn't mind, but I would think since they paid for their own dresses that they should call them individually, not put pressure on the bride to do it.

When one of my bridesmaids picked up her dress, they told her she could come back any time to get alterations. So she came in on her day off and they told her she had to make an appointment for the following week. She called to make an appointment a few days later and they told her that it was "prom week" and that she would have to call and make an appointment for the following week after that. There is obviously a failure to communicate between employees at this shop and so we chose to get alterations elsewhere.
As for the dresses themselves, I think everyone should stay clear of the designer Bill Levkoff. The dresses were gorgeous in the shop, but when we got them, neither one fit like they did in the shop. One of my bridesmaids fit perfectly in the dress at the shop (without clamps) and didn't need alterations, but when she got the new one, it was tight in the stomach and way too big in the bust (and no, she didn't gain/lose). The other bridesmaid has a dress that is 2 sizes too big. I think this is a designer issue and not something the bridal shop has control over, but wanted to warn other brides when picking dresses here.

Overall, great selection of dresses and helpful when purchasing, but I would get alterations elsewhere.

Something Blue Bridal Boutique responded with the following comments:

I am sorry that you feel this because we have never had a complaint from a bride about being called that their bridesmaids dresses were in. Most brides appreciate the call and are excited to know that they are here safe and sound. Second, in regards to your bridesmaid alteration appointment, I think there has been some confusion. I remember talking to her and she needed a specific day and we did not have any available appointments for that day seeing that she called the week of. We then explained to her that we usually are not that crazy booked but because it is "Prom Week" our flexibility was limited. But she had her choice of days for next week, but her job schedule changes every week. Third if you feel that Bill Levkoff has messed up your dresses I would love to forward them your concerns. So if you would like us to remeasure them we would be happy to forward this information to them. Again we are truly sorry but we just never had some of these complaints before.

I thought the ladies at Something Blue did a wonderful job on my dress. I was in need of a rush on my alterations and they did it no problem. It fit perfectly and it was one less thing I needed to worry about on my wedding day. The little old Greek lady who did the alterations is so sweet. She even did a couple of my bridesmaids dresses at her home on the side for very cheap and she did a terrific job. Would definitely go there again if I needed something altered!

I didn't buy my gown at Something Blue, but I went to them for alterations and pressing since their location was more convenient for me. On Fridays they bring in an outside seamstress to do fittings and alterations on gowns that were purchased elsewhere. She was terrific! The dress fit perfectly by the time she was done, and they had everything nicely pressed and ready to go the day before my wedding. Even after I missed one fitting appointment and arrived 6 hours late on my pick-up day, the staff was always courteous, helpful, and cheerful. The only tricky thing is, you can ONLY go on Fridays for fittings if you didn't purchase the dress from their store -- that's understandable, but a little inconvenient. I'd definitely recommend this boutique to others, either for purchasing a dress or for getting a dress altered.

Found my perfect wedding dress and bridesmaid dresses at Something Blue. Trillion was amazing at helping me to find my perfect dress and she added just the right accessories to bring tears to my eyes. I knew at that moment that I had found my dress. Everyone took great care to make sure my dress was perfect for my special day. I will treasure my dress always. My daughter is already asking if she can wear it one day! Makes my heart smile. I was so happy to be able to buy my dress from a local small business, rather than some "chain" store that just cares about selling another dress. The staff at Something Blue really take care of you and your family! Thank you ladies!!!

The initial visit to choose and order a dress was much easier than I anticipated. Once I got my undergarments situated the first fitting went well. On the second fitting more had to be taken in as expected because brides tend to loose weight before the wedding. I was told that I could not try on my dress again after the second alteration by the seamstress but thank goodness the sales rep Cruz, scheduled me to come try it on before it was pressed and steamed. When I came to try it on for the last time, I was told once again that I couldn't try it on as it wasn't ready. it seemed that the front desk and the alterations dept are not on the same page, luckily the same person was there from the second visit and helped ease my frustration from being told that I'd have to return later in the day. I tried it on and the alterations were perfect. The end result was great and I was pleased.

Something Blue Bridal Boutique responded with the following comments:

We are sorry that you were in any way disappointed but when a bride is on an extreme weight loss program it usually requires a little extra on both sides since every time there is an appointment the dress has to keep being taken in. But we are happy to help because we want the bride to look perfect.

This is the best boutique you will ever need to visit. The staff is knowledgeable, attentive, and fun! They truly make you feel like you are a princess! The boutique is decorated beautifully. The selection of dresses is amazing for the size of the boutique. They have all the styles of the season, plus some oldies but goodies. Accessories, shoes, tux rentals, you name it, Something Blue does it. Since my experience, Ive recommended 3 people to this shop for their dress and bridal party attire, and they have been more than pleased. Bottom line- don't waste your time going anywhere else.

My name is Janna. I am getting marries locally in Sarasota. When I initially started dress shopping, I googled and visited every dress shop in Sarasota, and several in St. Pete and Tampa. Nothing popped out at me and said, "this is YOUR dress!" To make a long story short, I came across Something Blue and decided to stop in one day. Everyone was very kind, helpful, and upbeat. I instantly liked the layout and atmosphere. They had selected their dress brands well, and had beautiful styles from modern, to classic, to vintage! Needless to say, I found my dress and veil there, for an affordable price, and got all my alterations done as well ( which was no easy task - taking a size 12 dress down to a 6). Throughout the process they have been very accommodating with my tight schedule, and all phone calls and communications have been professional and punctual! Overall, I am very satisfied with my experience at Something Blue and would recommend their services without reservation!

Make sure you have an appointment for a dress fitting, as there isn't much space for more than one bride to try on. They really give you a feel good atmosphere and make you feel like you're the most beautiful in the dresses you try on. Trilli is the best associate I was able to work with and she tried on dresses with me for hours.
I also got my veil there along with all of my alterations. The alterations lady is a little rough around the edges but she did an absolutely AMAZING job. The ladies at Something Blue really love their jobs and it shows. Thanks SBBB!

My dress looks like it should have cost thousands of dollars but was under $1,000! I was shocked that I could get what I wanted in my budget.

Everyone at Something Blue Bridal was so helpful as I was trying to find the perfect dress on a small budget. I didn't feel rushed or like I was bothering the consultant I worked with, which was how I felt at other stores in the area that I went to. I ended up with a beautiful Allure dress and the price was AMAZING! I came in under budget with a dress that looks like it cost way more!
I also got my bridesmaid dresses, mothers dresses, and accessories through Something Blue. They have such a huge selection to choose from, took the time to work with me, my girls, my mom, and my mother-in-law on different styles and colors to make sure everything would come out just like I imagined. The veil, earrings and cuff bracelet I purchased for myself were discounted since I bought my dress through them, which I thought was such a great value considering that their prices are already very reasonable.
My girls and I just began our alterations at Something Blue and we also got discounted prices on these we bought our dresses from them! I couldn't believe it -- I saved money on my dress, got discounts on accessories AND alterations! I am so happy that I was able to work with Something Blue Bridal to make sure I look exactly how I imagined on my wedding day!

I had the pleasure of working with Joan at Something Blue! She was such a dear! So helpful, patient, and had excellent recommendations! I am a complete Disney NUT and thought the Disney Princess dresses from the Alfred Angelo Fairytale Collection were too big and princess-y for me, but after trying on about 15 dresses, Joan pulled the "Princess Jasmine" gown and said "This will look so gorgeous on your figure, I promise!" I put it on, and it was complete water works! It made it so special to find my perfect dress and for it to be a Disney dress!
Dana did alterations on my dress, as well as my mom's and daughter's dresses and she did such a phenomenal job! My dress fit me like it was made for me when she was done with it! I was very pleased with my experience with these two ladies!!

I found my dream dress with the help of Kristi at Something Blue Bridal Boutique! My amazing experience started before I even stepped foot in the salon. I live an hour away from the salon, so before my appointment they gladly answered ALL of the many e-mails I sent regarding their selection, specific dresses, etc. I was a little worried when I first walked into the salon because it is rather small, however do not let space fool you! They have hundreds of beautiful gowns to choose from....and the prices are amazing!!! I would have easily thought the gown I chose cost double of what I paid for it.

Also, they don't try to simply sell you on the more expensive dress. I only had to try on 5 gowns before I knew I had found the one. I made sure I did not look at the price tags before I tried them on so I would not have a biased opinion when picking. I ended up narrowing down my choices to 2 dresses. Kristi excitedly agreed that the one I was leaning towards was best for me. When I went back in the dressing room I was shocked to look at the price tags. The dress I ended up choosing cost half as much as the other dress I was deciding on!! Not once did they try to push me to get the more expensive dress to boost their sales. They really enjoy helping you find a dress that is perfect for you.

I cannot wait for March when I get to wear my gown :)

The only reason I deducted points for flexibility was because I was not allowed to leave my dress at the salon until my alterations appointment. I can understand there point of not having enough storage room for every bride to do this, however, I live with my fiancé so I am PRAYING he doesn't get any funny ideas and peek in our guest room closet before the big day!

After visiting several other bridal shops, Something Blue Bridal Boutique stood out from the rest. The staff at Something Blue is unmatched. Everyone is so helpful and their friendly personalities really make finding your dress a fun experience. My mom and I were so pleased when we left because we had a great time, didn't feel pressured, and appreciated how much time they spent with us to make sure everything was exactly what I wanted.
They have a great selection of wedding gowns and accessories. I purchased my gown, veil, headpiece and bridesmaids dresses from here and everything was perfect. From my first visit, to alterations appointments, to picking everything up pressed and ready to go, Something Blue Bridal made my experience enjoyable and stress free and I couldn't have been happier!

Something Blue Bridal Boutique is WONDERFUL! small store but had a big selection of beautiful dresses. I think I made the staff nervous because I have brought 9 women with me (mom, mom-to-be grandmothers and four of my bridesmaids) I wasn't too happy with their reaction to my large group at first but they accommodated nicely. With the help of the staff I found my dream dress and gorgeous dresses for my bridesmaids in less than 2 hours. I would also like to add that they have an amazing lace seletion if you were considering that for your dress. Overall very pleased with the staff and dress options & would reccommed to any bride.

I've been shopping with Something Blue for years; Kristi and the girls are always so amazing. Their seamstress, Anthy, is amazing. Anthy will tell you EXACTLY what your dress NEEDS. You can be sure when you leave with a dress altered by Anthy, it's going to be perfect.

Kirsti also outfitted the Mister and his groomsmen, they looked perfect. When he said he was letting the boys pick their own shoes, I ran to Something Blue to fix that. The girls just laughed and handed me the book, let me pick, and told me not to worry, they would make sure the guys got their measurements. When Mister texted me a picture of himself in his suit (3 days before the wedding), I freaked. The picture made him look like a giant box. My Maid of Honor and I rushed to the store to see it in person. I've never seen Kristi laugh so hard; but she pulled out the jacket and put it on him and sure enough, it fit perfectly.

I've always loved Something Blue; I knew they'd be perfect for the Wedding Day and they did not disappoint.

THANK YOU!!!

Christy has all the patience in the world! I had a few changes to my wedding party, and each time I told her, she said it was no problem! Cruz helped me pick out my dress, and it was perfect! I'm so glad a friend recommended them to me. If you want a large selection with a small boutique personal experience, this is the place! Thank you girls for all of your help!

I live in Los Angeles but got married in Sarasota and found my dress at Something Blue in Bradenton. They made it extremely easy for me to find a dress and worked with my travel schedule for fittings, alterations, etc. Not being a very "girly" girl, they still made dress shopping comfortable for me. The price of the dress was also very good, despite being a "new release." I would never have found that dress at that price in Los Angeles. I also bought my hair piece and a brooch for my dress here. However, those were much more pricey (but I don't think they were too far above market price). The alterations department worked with me to put bra cups and the brooch on my dress (along with hem and other alterations). They steamed the dress before the wedding too. Everything worked out fantastic and I would recommend at least shopping there for a dress before buying one.

It was a size 12 and I am a size 2, but after their seamstress was finished with it you would have never known she had cut over half of it off. My dress was perfect.

You have to make an appointment with Trillian. She is amazing & so helpful! The boutique is very cute & personable, not like those big chains. The owner / manager was amazing in helping me with the shoes I had ordered that didn't come out how I thought they would. She made sure to get me a new pair of shoes in time for my wedding. This boutique definitely stands behind the motto of making their customers happy!

The only bad thing I could say is that I personally did not like their seamstress. She was rude & was blaming me when I drove down there from Orlando for my last fitting and my bust area was way too tight. The owner / manager stepped in & fixed everything though! In the end, I'm extremely happy with Something Blue!

We used Something Blue for the tux rentals only. They don't run by appointment necessarily, so the shop is always packed and loud. Many of the employees are clueless and appeared bored. The manager, Christi, however, is great and knows what she's doing.

I was pretty annoyed when we went in to look at the options because we were looking for navy tuxedos and they weren't actually there. On the phone, they led us to believe that they had them. When we arrived, they had pictures of a navy "wedding suit" and of a charcoal tuxedo (among many other things), but you had to pay for a sample to try on at a later date. We were rushed to get it done and just ordered the samples.

When the samples came in, the wedding suit wasn't very nice and really didn't fit the groom well. I didn't trust that the measurements taken by the shop were correct. Fortunately we LOVED the charcoal tuxedo and we able to place the orders.

Simply Blue came through perfectly in the end. A few items didn't fit, but Christi rush-ordered replacements and they were in on time.

Something Blue Bridal Boutique responded with the following comments:

I am sorry that you were disappointed in any part of our services, but I feel that we did our part in fulfilling all of your tuxedo requirements since the majority of your tuxedos were measured out of town. I was totally unaware of any unhappiness because we want everyone to have a good experience.

I bought my wedding dress from Something Blue Bridal on a recommendation from another friend of mine who had bought her wedding dress there as well. Something Blue Bridal was the only store I went to when shopping for my wedding dress. Their selection was huge (even though it doesn't look like it). The staff were more than helpful and worked with any requests that I had. The value at this store is exceptional! Overall I am very pleased with the service and value at this store and would recommend it to anyone looking for a formal event dress or a wedding dress.

My sister used this shop to buy her wedding dress and bridesmaid dresses for her wedding several years ago. When I came in (several years later) the staff still remembered me and my family! Kristi (the owner), immediately started showing me dresses as soon as I walked in. She gave her honest opinion and was so sweet/kind! I found my dream dress (Allure Couture), veil, and jewelry there! As well the most beautiful bridesmaid dresses! All along the way, they gave honest and truthful advice on styles, and wedding apparel. It was so helpful! I suggest this shop to every one of my girlfriends looking to buy their wedding dress. Hands down the sweetest people, and best deals in town!!! I even went back to them to get my dress/veil preserved because I trust them so much. Definitely choose this shop!

They made me feel like a true Princess for my wedding day. They also found a dress for my 6 bridesmaids, who where all different sizes. They looked absolutely beautiful the day of my wedding. The staff is friendly, knowlegeable and very helpful. If you are looking for a full service bridal shop this is the one for you. Trust me I went all over the Tampa bay area and no one has come even close to the service I recieved from Something Blue. Also, all the alterations and sewing of the gowns were exellent. Thank you so much!!!!

Something Blue Bridal is a very affordable Bridal Boutique. We got our Tuxs, BM dress and Bridal gown here. The staff are friendly and personable. Out of all the dresses I tried on they had the best prices for the styles of dresses they sell! Love them!

I used them for my destination wedding, and coordinated things from Chicago. Kristi was amazing to work with. She helped me with planning the attire, and then we had our wedding party get measured in Chicago, and then I e-mailed her the measurements and she ordered the tuxes from there. They were at the bridal shop a few days before the wedding giving everyone plenty of time to pick them up and try them on.
She also pressed my wedding gown for me and did a great job.
She was fun and easy to work with, always pleasant to talk to, and was good at calming my wedding nerves!
I highly recommend using Something Blue Bridal Boutique.

My mother and I drove to 13 bridal gown shops before we found "the dress." Something Blue Bridal Boutique was a cute little shop with a great staff, many dress choices, great prices, and intimate feel. The staff doesn't pressure you into a sale and the best part is it's not loud and chaotic as other bridal shops can be.

I am so lucky that I ran across Something Blue! The thing I loved most about the boutique was that I could walk in and try on every dress they had – they were all in my budget! Not only were they dresses inexpensive, they were beautiful. In my opinion they could be charging double their price for these dresses. I fell in love with the first dress that I put on, but just to make sure I tried on about 20 others. I didn’t even look at any of the price tags until I had picked my dress – I was in shock, it was only $300! Christy really made the process fun and helped me pick the perfect dress. I also bought my bridesmaids dresses there. Once the dresses came in we were able to get alterations on-site which was wonderful. I loved everything about my dress and I felt so beautiful!

So after going to 4 different places I knew that Something Blue was going to be the place I bought my dress and I did. I found the perfect dress and the greatest things is that I came back 4 different times and each time they were so patient. I loved it how my dress was their own design and how no one else was going to be wearing it. Especially because I hated places like davids bridal. Thank you so much for making me feel comfortable!

Had such an amazing experience here! I think I tired on a hundred dresses over the year it took me to find my dress! This was the best experience of them all. After some horrible experiences elsewhere I came in and was immediately helped they let me try on as many as I wanted until I found what I was looking for. I wasn't sure so we ended up going back with a couple family members and they offered the same great service again! We ended up getting everything there. Bridesmaids dresses and Tuxes!

Something Blue is excellent, I highly recommend them! When I came in the staff was very friendly and helpful and didn't push me into buying a dress that day (I was torn between two and needed some second opinions). They have a great selection of dresses, all under $1,000 that are of good quality and value. The shop is very clean and cute. I had my alterations done here and the seamstress, although not very talkative, did an excellent job. My dress fit like a glove! They also had a nice selection of bridesmaids dresses which we ordered from here with no problem and even some mother of the bride dresses.

We ordered the groom and groomsmen's tuxes from here as well, through Jim's Formal wear, and had no problems. The only downside of that was that they didn't have tuxes there to try on, they just measured the guys and we picked the tuxes out from a catalog. I'm not familiar with tux rentals so maybe that's standard protocol...just seemed weird to me to not be able to try on first, but they fit and looked good when they came in so I was happy.

The shop owner was there every time I came in and was very nice. She even remembered my name after coming in a few times. I really can't say enough good things about Something Blue!
