I found the dress I wanted at another store but I ordered here becuase they were able to show me what the color would look like. I wanted a champagne colored dress and the place where I first tried it on had NOTHING to show me in that color so I didn't feel that I could order it without seeing the color first.

They helped me find my dream dress! I told them what I was looking for a day they pulled it. The wedding dress was even at a great price. I would recommend this to any bride in the area.

Never order your tuxes from this place! All, but 2 of our tuxes were ordering incorrectly! They were significant wrong sizes! It was almost a joke how off the sizes were. So, we had to reorder the tuxes and 3 of them didn't come back in until the day or our wedding, including the grooms!!! We were so upset as we have enough on our minds that day. On top of it the tuxes they ordered for the second time, still came in not fitting correctly! However, it was the day of the wedding so we could not reorder for the third time. Another thing that went wrong is the pants were not what we had ordered. They were a completely different pair than what the employee had showed us was being ordered, but again, there was nothing we could do as it was the day of our wedding. Definitely stay away from the tuxes at this place. Out of all the vendors we had contracts with for our special day, this was by far the worst and the only one that did not deliver once so ever.

I'm not a 'girly girl' by any stretch of the imagination, so I was a little worried about dress shopping. My best friend took me to the Bridal Event because it is where her sister bought her dress, and they had a great experience. The Bridal Event, by far, had the best customer service and quality that I found anywhere. Having been with my sister to chain bridal stores and a few other places for her wedding, I really wasn't expecting much; but the Bridal Event blew me away. Every time I turned around they were going out of their way to help me (and I didn't even ask them too). Just as one example, I was living in the UK at the time of my wedding, so my plan was to do one fitting a couple of months before the wedding and then hope for the best; but they offered to do the alterations overnight so I could try the dress on again before going back to the UK after Christmas, I just couldn't believe it. It is absolutely worth the trip (no matter how far) to check out the Bridal Event. Their selection and prices are fantastic as well, definitely the whole package when it comes to Bridal gowns.

Everyone that helped me here was superb. The dress I ended up getting was actually picked out by a staff member that told me, "I think this is exactly what you are describing." She was so right and after trying on a bazillion more dresses...I went back to Bridal Event to get the dress she picked out.

They were extremely flexible with all sizing, questions and anything else I needed. This was important because I live about 100 miles away and had to make a 1.5 hour trip every time.

Great place with excellent input.

I had such a rough day after wedding dress shopping all day and was ready to give up. Once I walked into The Bridal Event and met my consultant, my mood instantly changed. She understood how frustrated I was and helped me find the perfect dress! Alterations also went smoothly. I would recommend this store to any future bride.

I was very pleased with their customer service, but their were issues with their alterations department. I would take your dress elsewhere. My wedding dress was not altered the way they say they would and took it in making it way too tight. My maid of honor needed her whole dress taken apart by another seamstress to do more alterations. They did A great job dying my shoes to match color of my dress.

The dress came in record time. They were a little behind in dying my shoes. Also, as a long distance bride, I had only two times I could fly in for fittings. I had to tell the seamstress at boh appointments the dress was too loose both times. I ended up pulling my dress up all night, the one thing I didn't want to do!!! Get your dress there, but find a different seamstress for alterations.

Great people to work with, beautiful gowns! Timeliness for alterations was awesome - my maid of honor was from Germany and flew in friday the week before my wedding, and the ladies at Bridal Event got her dress altered in time for the wedding. There was also a problem with the hem length the friday before, and they fixed it right away, while we waited!

Amazing selection of bridal gowns of all kinds; courteous, helpful staff. Don't go shopping on Thursday-Saturday, as those seem to be the busiest days.

Could offer a more varied "mother-of-the-bride" selection.

The very first time I went there the bridal consultant Bailey was awesome. She was very receptive to my needs. The second time I went there the bridal consultant was ok but she didn't give me a comfort feeling like the first girl did. I did find THE DRESS that day. The Manager (a slim lady with short red hair) was kind of rude and stand offish. I left without getting the dress but returned to order it because I knew I could get it there. Upon buying my dress from them, they told me I would get 20% off accessories. I decided to wait to get them because I wanted to get my dress first. My husband and I had to change our wedding date due to his father not being able to make it until later. I asked them if I could wait to choose my accessories because I wanted to get them about a month before my wedding to make sure I loved them. They said this was fine and I would get the 20% off. When I returned and I was paying for my accessories they did not grant the 20% off. I was mad but still decided to buy the stuff. I calmly asked about the 20% and the cashier informed me they would not because we changed our wedding date. This upset me but I am not one to say much. I did tell her that I was told they would grant it and when the manager was asked she gave me a "dirty" (for lack of a better word) look and kept whispering something to the cashier. This was very disrespectful in my eyes and I would never return or suggest them to ANYONE!!! They are very unprofessional! I wish I would have found another retailer that carried the brand and bought it there. I would suggest that if you do go here, don't order your dress here. Edith's which is about 30 miles away is where I would go to order my dress!

9 of 11 tuxes were severly incorrect. 2 had to be delivered to us day of the wedding. 5 out of 5 dresses that were altered were sloppy or never quite correct. 4 out of 7 dresses purchased had mechanical issues (zippers or clasps that failed). Customer service was hit or miss - either spectacular, or horrid. Phone call with the manager to address these issues provided NO resolution - or even empathy to the situation.

STAY AWAY! I will pass the word as far as I can. If I had it to do over, I would never have given my business to this store.

The ladies at Bridal Event were fun to shop with and I felt they cared about me and my bridal party. They were helpful in finding the perfect dress and took the time to give personal service. When items arrived from special orders, they were quick to call and let me visit my dress as often as I liked. They took care to keep my dress in the fire safe until I was ready to pick it up and made alterations on-site, which made it so easy. I was on the hunt for a Maggie Sottero gown and found it here...plus so many more!

The Bridal Event did a great job. I found a reasonably priced dress. They did a great job with the alterations and had everything done when they said they would. I inquired about the dress coming in a garment bag (I didn't want my future husband to see it), they said it did. What I didn't realize, was that it was just an extra long garbage bag. Had I realized that in advance, I would have made other (better) arrangements for a garment bag.

I would highly recommend The Bridal Event to anyone looking for a wedding dress. They are so welcoming and helpful. The thing I loved most was that I was able to go around the showroom and choose the dresses that I wanted to try on. I had tried David's Bridal first and hated how they pushed dresses onto you that you had no interest in. The attendants are so patient - I had a hard time deciding between two dresses and my attendant had no issue with lacing me up in the dresses several times.

I would HIGHLY recommend the bridal/formal event for your wedding. This was one of the first stores I went to to try on dresses. When we got there they were ready for us and let me take in and try on as many dresses as what I wanted. My consultant was eager to pull whatever I wanted and their layout by design helped so much! Once I narrowed down to a top five, she had no problem with us taking pictures of the dresses and even wrote down the style numbers and designers for us. They were the only store we went to that did that AND offered to match anyones prices, even online! I was more than pleased with my seamstress and she did everything in her power to make my dress as gorgeous as possible. Even with picking up my dress a few days before the wedding she ensured that if I needed anything done she would see to it that it was perfect. I would go back in a heartbeat!

As for the formal event, the guys tuxes looked amazing. Most places a tux is a tux, but they gave us a great deal for what we got, my husband got his for free and you can not beat Victoria's customer service. I believe that she is the manager or lead for that area, but she is the best. It seemed like every time I went in, she was working. She never hesitated to pull looks and dress a manican for me. Even after changing my mind on what I wanted several times, she never seemed annoyed by it and when asked, always offered great suggestions. Another plus was that we didnt have to get the tuxes back until Monday. GREAT GREAT store and we will recommend it to everyone from the area!

I purchased my bridal gown from The Bridal Event and found there service helpful and courteous. The gown was the same price range at most bridal shops in the area. They do have a fireproof safe, so I felt good knowing my dress would be secure as I ordered it several months prior to the wedding. The seamstress was attentive and had no issues with making changes to minor details so the gown fit perfect. I had no issue ordering and the size gown I ordered fit like a glove so I had minimal alterations. They had been running a deal that if you spent a certain dollar amount they offered discounts, with the discount my alterations were only $50, which I found reasonable. They also had a large selection of bridesmaid dresses in all sizes and colors if you would like to outfit the bridal party.

I purchased both my dress and all of my bridesmaid dresses through The Bridal Event and I have mixed feelings about this vendor. While I loved my dress and I feel they did an amazing job with alterations and everything, I was a bit unimpressed with they way they handled some of my bridesmaids. They were always very friendly and accommodating to me as a bride, but the woman working with my file was quite rude to some of my bridesmaids, both in my presence and when I was not there. When one of my bridesmaids went in to get measured, the consultant told her she could keep her belt on during the measuring. My bridesmaid didn't agree because it was a very chunky belt and when she tried to take the belt off, the consultant snapped at her for not trusting her judgment. She told her to order a size 12 after measuring her with the belt on.... my bridesmaid is a size 6 in dresses. She ultimately ordered it in an 8, which fit her perfectly, but the consultant continued to tell her that there was no way it would fit her body. She also asked one of my bridesmaids who was paying with her debit card if she had enough money in her bank account to cover the cost. I was pretty unimpressed that some of the most important people in my life were treated in this way. Everyone else I worked with was very nice and accommodating, and they have beautiful dresses at pretty reasonable prices. Overall, I would say definitely go there to try on dresses and see their selection, but feel it out for yourself, and maybe go elsewhere for bridesmaids dresses.

Also, as a sidenote, I do not recommend going through The Formal Event for tuxedos. The Formal Event is located in the basement of The Bridal Event. This is really the only vendor we had major problems with. While the tuxedos looked great, we had 3 out of the 10 men in our wedding renting tuxedos that had to be sent back the week of the wedding. My father and one of the groomsmen had not changed in size at all between the time they were measured and when they picked up the tuxedos, so I don't understand how that happened and I am glad they picked up their tuxes early enough to get it fixed in time. The other was our junior groomsmen-- they ordered everything WAY too big and had to get it sent back earlier in the week of the wedding. When they came to pick it up the day of the wedding, it was not ready. My nephew did not receive his tuxedo until an hour and a half before our ceremony and my sister and brother-in-law literally had to meet the Fed Ex truck in the city our ceremony was taking place in. I would avoid The Formal Event altogether.

I had a positive experience purchasing my wedding gown from the Bridal Event. They were attentive and friendly. I also enjoyed that they altered the gown in house and they stored my gown for me until the day before my wedding in a fire safe vault. The problems we had were with the Formal Event, which is downstairs of the Bridal Event and they handle all the menswear. We had some issues with the ordering of the suits, and were told that the suits could all be picked up at a certain time and then one of them wasn't even in yet (this is like two days before the wedding). And one of the groomsmen pants split open (from walking, not even dancing or anything) and they CHARGED ME for it! I was not impressed with all the hassle we had with them and because their suit was of poor quality they charged ME! The girls upstairs handling the wedding gowns are terrific and professional, the girls downstairs handling the menswear seemed to be a little unorganized.

I bought my dress there & all of my bridesmaids bought their dresses there, too. I loved the fact that you didn't have to make an appointment to try on dresses. And their consultants weren't breathing down your necks pressuring you to make a purchase.

The bridal consultants at The Bridal Event were friendly and helpful. The consultant I had worked exclusively with unlike the other bridal shop I went to that day. I appreciated the one-on-one assistance. The selection at the Bridal Event was huge and a wide variety of styles were available. The building the Bridal Event was in also included tuxes and photography so it was nice to be able to get everything in one place if needed. We did not utilize the men's formal attire or photography as it was quite a distance from our home and could not make trips often. Overall, my experience was wonderful and I would recommend The Bridal Event, Inc to anyone.

Oh my gosh, I fell in love with the Bridal Event. Prior to going there, I was getting frustrated with other bridal stores, but when I went there they won my heart over. They gave me their undivided attention and were willing to assist in any way possible. They did not rush you in any way either. They have a huge room for trying on dresses and are willing to give you suggestions. They allowed me to try on my veil, jewelry, shoes, etc., before I bought them!!! Brides-to-be take the time and go to the Bridal Event!!!

Also, downstairs they have the Formal Event which is where we got our tuxes and I HIGHLY recommend that place too. That was the FIRST tux store that allowed you to dress a display model they way you want your tuxes to look. AWESOME JOB !!!

Very wide selection and friendly staff. The first time I was there I had the place to myself and was able to take pictures of the dresses that I tried on so that I could later compare them. However, they do not take appointments. So, when I went back to order the dress and do fittings, I sometimes had to wait up to an hour before I got a chance to see and talk to someone. Prices were average, neither very expensive nor very cheap. Very wide selections of brides dresses, bridesmaids dresses, jewelry, etc. Alterations were done accurately and at an average price.

It was so nice to be able to go in without an appointment to look for the dresses. Everyone there was so helpful and they were not snotty like some of the other stores I visited. Their selection is the best and their prices are very reasonable. Once we had found the dresses, they called immediately when they were in and were very flexiable about fitting times. We probably changed our minds 10 times on the tuxes and they were so nice about it. Thank you Bridal Event!

The Bridal Event did a wonderful job. I bought my dress, shoes and veil from them. Because they didn't have the dress I had found in the store to try on, they ordered my dress and discounted my purchase by 10%. I planned my wedding from out of town and they were great about fitting me in for last min alterations right before the wedding. Another huge bonus was that they stored and pressed my dress at no charge right before the wedding.

They have a great selection of dresses at reasonable prices; the dresses are sent from the designer after you order them, so no one else has ever worn them. They are more expensive than David Bridal, but there is a higher quality and not every other bride is wearing your same dress. I would recommend getting alterations elsewhere to save some money.

The Bridal Event was fabulous to work with!! Not only did they have by far the most dresses in the area, but they were very helpful and friendly every time I went there. They were very reassuring and they did a fabulous job with the alterations. If I ever need a formal dress again I will certainly make The Bridal Event my first stop!

The Bridal Event in Appleton was WONDERFUL! They had excellent customer service, and beautiful dresses. They did a wonderful job with alterations. I purchased my wedding dress, bridesmaid dresses, tiara, veil, and had my shoes dyed here. I loved working with them. :)

A very busy store but for good reason. Their selection is the best in town and their workers are very helpful. I was very pleased with the prices (several hundred cheaper than other stores) and the quality. A great place!

This place was different from most bridal shops in that they have a lot of variety. The bridesmaids that went there to get alterations said it was the worst customer service they had ever received. In terms of style and selection I give it a 4. In terms of servicea 2.

Bridal Event service reps were very professional. It is a busy store so getting an attendant's attention on a Saturday is difficult; however, they are extremely helpful. The store has a massive collection of dresses from many different designers in many different colors. They also match prices, including those online, as long as you bring in a print-out of the website. This can save you so much money!

My bridesmaids went here since they were a little cheaper, but to me they did not have the best selection. They were like a bargain warehouse to me, but for my bridesmaids, since they were money conscious, it suited them fine. We paid for it in the pictures.

The staff here were exceptional and professional. I found the dress and of course proceeded to try on 20 more dresses just to be sure. I was able to find my veil, shoes, bridesmaid and flower girl dresses. Prices were more than reasonable and the selection was outstanding. Everything was ready on time, including the multiple alterations for the dieting bride.

I ordered my dress from this place and paid in full. My husband ended up going into the military and we had to put off our wedding date. I did not want him to see the dress so I called The Bridal Event and they told me that it would be no problem and they would put it in the vault. When I called to pick up the dress, I was told that they had no record of my sale. I lost out on my dress AND the $900+ I spent there. To this day, I cry when I think about it. I never did get to have my wedding.

The Bridal Event was a great place to work with regarding my dress and bridesmaid dresses. My husband also got his tuxes from the Formal Event which is in the basement of the Bridal Event. We used all three services provided in this building (Bridal Event, Formal Event, Portrait Event---which was nice to have all those in the same place because it was less running around to do.) The girls at the Bridal Event were very helpful with letting me come try on my dress when I wanted to and they made sure that things came in on time. Also, I had my dress altered there and it was done very well. The one nice thing about the Bridal Event is that they have a fire-proof vault in their store where you can leave your dress until the day you need to pick it up. No worrying about where to put a dress for 8 months before your wedding like some places. I would recommend using the Bridal Event to purchase a dress, accessories, bridesmaid dresses, mother of the bride dresses and flower girl dresses.

I shopped at so many salons and the service here was by far the best. I found my dress by trying on a sample at another store, but I still went to the Bridal Event to order. My consultant, Bailey, was so helpful and knew me by name pretty quickly. Everyone was so friendly and even though a lot of services are walk-in, I never had to wait long. Their prices were the lowest I found, and the alteration costs were reasonable as well. I have no complaints and I would definitely recommend them.

I cannot explain to you how wonderful the service was at this place. I'd been dress shopping everywhere and this was the only place that really went out of their way, above and beyond, to make my dress shopping experience memorable, joyful, stress-free and affordable! The staff here is so professional and very friendly. Extremely helpful in knowing what works/what doesn't and they chose dresses that I loved - it was like they could read my mind! Wonderful experience here - my wedding gown, Claire Pettibone, came in on time and fast and the price was very affordable. I lived in Chicago but made sure to drive all the way back to Wisconsin JUST so I could purchase the dress here. WELL worth the drive - highly recommend them to everyone!
