I had some trouble with them when it got closer to my wedding. They were great until I really needed things done. When I went in for my final fitting - they didn't have anything completed! (a week before my wedding) So I had to make ANOTHER appointment to come in for my final fitting. Then when I expressed some discern about the way the dress was fitting, she tried to tell me it was because I had a "poofy" belly. But, actually it was because they stitched it incorrectly and when I asked her to take it out it looked much better. - FRUSTRATING.

On their behalf - they were very busy that week (prom weekend) - but I'm not sure that is a good enough excuse. - I should say though, they were VERY nice at the beginning of my shopping process. If you choose to buy a dress here, be sure your wedding is not during their busy season or you might get pushed to the side.

The staff were so friendly and helpful. I thought I would be overwhelmed by trying on different dresses, but my consultant kept me focused and made great suggestions.
I went to the shop with an idea of the type of dress I wanted, but wasn't too pleased with the way the style fit my figure. Arlene knew what to pull and had me smiling with every dress! This was by far the easiest decision I made about the wedding. I bought a dress the first time to the shop and spent less than I expected. I plan on using them for my bridesmaid dresses and my mom's dress as well because I know that I will get top-quality service.

I went to the Barn because several people had told me that it would be an awesome experience. This place is out in the middle of nowhere, and does not look like much when you pull up, but once you get inside it is awesome! The owner herself was my consultant and took her time with me. I went back twice before I decided on my dress and they never tried to pressure me into buying it too fast. They were so incredibly helpful with finding my perfect dress. The prices were great too! They have the same designer dresses as other stores, but they are incredibly well priced! I would recommend this place to anyone!

Ok, I have mixed reviews of this place, I loved getting my dress there. I am a plus sized bride and the owner herself helped me, and she was so kind! I loved her, such a swwet woman. However, the seamstress that did all my alterations was a nightmare!!!! So rude, always late, and did not get the fitting correct, even when I told her it still did not fit...the store and sales team is great, but take your dress out of the shop for alterations

The selection and service are both quite good. However, BEWARE THE ALTERATION CHARGES. They can add up and on quite considerably, without clear explanation as to what they might be per item (hemming, taking in, taking off a sash ) or per hour. In our case, alterations were almost as much as the cost of the dress! Additionally, the seamstress made some changes without asking us about it first (adding a large bow). We kept it that way but felt that it was not an idea we had asked to have (but paid for!!!). Bridesmaids dresses might go above what attendants think their costs are this way. Management seemed condescending when the charges were needed to be clarified to customer...

The girls at the Barn took their time with me. It was the first place I went to try on dresses based on a friends recommendation. I spent hours there trying on dresses, found the one and then couldnt make up my mind. After searching around I was back to get "the" dress, they were so patient. The seamstress they have there is awesome. Everyone is so helpful and nice. Great place to buy your dress. They have a great selection

Everyone at The Barn was so helpful, and the prices are very reasonable! I found my dream dress there, and I had it altered there by LeClare, who did a wonderful job. She took the time to show me all the bustle options, she put in pearl buttons for me, and she hemmed the bottom of my lace dress beautifully, which is no easy feat. I can't thank everyone at The Barn enough, and if you are looking for your wedding dress, I highly recommend going to The Barn!

Due to a family issue I ended up shopping for my wedding dress very last minute so I had to go with something off the rack. I fell in love with a beautiful wedding dress at the Barn that was three sizes too big. I just had to have it. The staff at the Barn were all very helpful in working within my budget as they have a lay away program and they also worked hard to ensure that my dress would be altered and perfect for the day of my wedding. My bridesmaids even fell in love with matching orange dresses. Everyone looked beautiful! Overall, the Barn is packed with gorgeous dresses in all shapes and sizes. My dress looked and fit beautifully on the day of my wedding. The only problem I encountered was the seamstress that was assigned to me. She clearly did not know what she was doing. Every time she altered my dress, a staff member at the Barn would have to come and tell "Deb" how to properly fix my dress or fix it themselves. "Deb" messed up so many times that I ended up having minor alterations done the day before my wedding. This was incredibly frustrating. However, I realize that The Barn is not to blame for this, my seamstress is the one to blame. She must be new or something. The staff at the Barn came to the rescue each and every time and were friendly all throughout...except for "Deb" who refused to admit she had messed up my dress. I recommend The Barn but choose your seamstress wisely.

I can not say enough good things about this place. It is tucked away in the hills of Bunker Hill area of WV but I tell you it is a diamond in the rough!!! I have never been one of those girls that thought they were beautiful but they accomplished making me feel amazing beyond my wildest dreams. I hated to take the dress off after the wedding. They are so caring and understand I just fell in love with the place. At the time I worked 3rd shift and they were will and beyond helpful to work with me and my crazy schedule. They have tons of dress for you to dress and someone is there with you every step of the way.

Wonderful! I got my dress as well as my bridesmaid dresses from here. They were very flexable to all of our hectic schedules. Beautiful dresses and with their payment plans I was able to pay for my entire wedding dress, alterations, and pressing before the wedding and without the headache of trying to come up with all of the money at once.

The employees at The Barn are incredibly helpful. They aim to please and to help make everyone feel special who goes in there. They went out of their way to get bridesmaid dresses that they didn't carry in the store.

I have to admit, when I first pulled up to the Barn, I thought my friends were crazy for taking me to what appeared to be a tiny little building in the middle of nowhere. Boy was I wrong - It ended up being a total gem! I had been to all the fancy dress shops in the DC area and was more than willing to spend a good amount on my dress. As it turns out, the girls at the Barn were so helpful and they listened to what I wanted, and helped me find "the one", and it was so much less than I had budgeted for! Everything was so easy with them from the first visit to the last. I will definitely recommend this gem to everyone I know getting married.

When you first arrive, this appears to be just a small Dress Store, but As you enter, you realize it's a much grander and incredible experience than you imagined. Not only do they have great dresses, but the prices were simply outstanding. I got my dress for only $100, but most dresses were somewhere between $100-300 NOT MUCH:) Great for a girl on a tight budget:)
