I ordered my dress early, but I specifically went in for the Hailey Paige trunk show last May 2014. It was fabulous! I found the dress of my dreams and received a discount because of the trunk show, it couldn't get any better than that! I also love that the store is holding onto my dress for me until it's time for alterations, which is huge since we just got a puppy and the last thing I need is a chewed up wedding dress!

The owner at TBG was the best! I had been to several other stores around Boston, NYC, and EG before checking out TBG and was feeling discouraged. I tried on a few there too and didn't see anything I liked (I'm terribly picky) so the owner encouraged me to try on something I would never wear to get me out of my funk then she told me to "just go pick one that wasn't awful." Trying on a big puffy dress actually worked and was really fun and as soon as I put on the dress I had picked out I was in love!!! I really owe her for her help since it wasn't the dress I had originally envisioned but it was the absolute most perfect dress and I got so many compliments on how gorgeous and "me" my dress was.
When it came in a few months after choosing it, it was about 4+ inches too short and I needed it long. I left feeling a little concerned but the owner called me back a day or so later and told me she would make sure I was a happy bride. She had the dress sent back and remade to ensure the proper fit and when I got it back a few weeks later it was just perfect! They have a great selection and are very helpful in identifying what you are looking for, what will look good on your shape, and ensuring happy brides.

The staff at the Bridal Garden was beyond helpful every step of the way for me and my girls. I purchased my bridal gown, the bridesmaids gowns, my flower girls dress and my junior bridesmaids dress from them. Every encounter I had with them was pleasant and easy. They always had answers and showed the utmost professionalism at all times. I would highly recommend this shop to anyone looking for a great experience when looking for your perfect gown!

When Leslie Mignarri owned the bridal garden it was THE place to buy dresses and gowns. Going in I was disappointed in the lack of gowns over size ten. Trying on dresses was miserable. The staff tried stuffing me (size 22) in dresses sized 8 and 10. Every dress I put on the staff raved about and said was the dress for me. I looked horrible. When I did find the right dress they ordered it wrong. They said they forgot to send in the paper with the specifications on the dress. Thank goodness I had a great seamstress. I will never return to the Bridal Garden.

Amended 1/10/15 in response to their comment on my review-
The trunk show was not scheduled for me, but I attended when the staff kindly said they would have two specific dresses I liked at the show. When the dress came in, as soon as the staff showed it to us we commented that the sleeves were not supposed to be attached. In addition, the staff had agreed to hold a belt for me to purchase when the dress arrived but sold it. Once the dress was paid for the staff no longer showed me any type of concern or kindness. When I expressed my disappointment upon picking it up to bring to my seamstress they acted as if I were ridiculous for being upset.

Once again, and especially after the comment back, I am disappointed in the experience as a whole at the Bridal Garden. Shopping and receiving a wedding dress should be a great experience. If one has a problem with her dress, I feel the store should at least sympathize, if not try to offer solutions. A wedding dress isn't simply an article of clothing, but something that has great sentimental value. Once it is paid for the staff should not disregard the bride, but should be sure she feels proud to be wearing their dress and want to tell others where she bought it. I have certainly learned from this experience, and I hope the staff at the Bridal Garden will too.

The Bridal Garden responded with the following comments:

Dear Jamie Martin,
We are sorry to hear of your dissatisfaction with our store. You failed to mention that we scheduled a special 15 piece wedding dress trunk show for you to specifically try on as many plus size wedding dresses for you to choose from. We never stated that we 'forgot to send the specifications' into the company - your dress was ordered after you personally reviewed the specifications and signed off on them - of which we still have on file.
Congratulations on your recent wedding and we wish you happiness in your future!

My experience at the Bridal Garden was one of my favorite parts of the wedding planning process. I worked with Christina (the owner) throughout the entire process and she was such a doll. We still have kept in touch over email.
After shopping around at a few stores in the Boston area, I decided to try out the Bridal Garden as I grew up Rhode Island and was striking out with the stores in my new area, and I'm so happy I did!
Their selection was great and Christina was helpful in pulling some choices. During my first appointment and all of them for that matter, I never felt rushed or pushed into making any decisions I wasn't comfortable making that day. Christina and her mother were sweet and encouraging as I picked out my dream wedding dress. Although, I knew my dress would require a lot of alterations, Christina put my mind at ease and went over how the alterations would look- she also connected me with the best seamstress ever!
I'm sad to see other people's reviews that did not have as wonderul of an experience as I did- it must have been off days, because I can't imagine Christina & her mom acting nothing but professional, sweet, and helpful! She's the kind of girl you would want to become friends with- which makes shopping for such a big occassion even more fun!

Christina and the other staff at the Bridal Garden were so incredibly helpful and made shopping for a wedding dress such a great experience. They were extremely kind, helpful, accommodating, knowledgable, and professional. They helped me pick out the most beautiful, unique gown and veil for my upcoming wedding, and I couldn't be happier. They have a great selection of dresses and completely personalize your appointment. I would highly recommend shopping at the Bridal Garden for your wedding or special event!

I was so disappointed with my experience here. I had gone with my sister three years ago to get her wedding gown and our bridesmaid dresses and we had a great experience, so I decided to return to shop for my dress. My first visit was fun, I went with my mom, sister, niece and mother-in-law to go dress shopping. We pulled at least a dozen dresses and I ended up finding THE dress during that visit (it was actually selected by my consultant), however, when we returned to pick up my dress, the owner was quick flippant and mean. I thought it might have just been a bad day and they were busy, so I wrote it off. Then I made an appointment to go bridesmaid dress shopping with my best friend and the owner was still there and she was mean to use and tried to hurry us along even though we had an appointment she told us that there was no room for us and that we'd have to come back or wait for a room to open. Then we didn't get any help whatsoever and decided to leave after only trying on a few dresses because they were being rude to us. I will not be returning.

I highly recommend the Bridal Garden for all of your wedding dress needs -- whether you are the bride, mother, bridesmaid or flower girl. This store has a very large selection and I was excited to be able to try one so many different styles of wedding dresses on my first visit. I came in on a Saturday afternoon and was immediately greeted by Karen who was so sweet and helpful. I told her this was the first store on my wedding shopping list and she didn't make me feel pressured. I told her I wasn't really sure what styles I liked and she went and got about 8 different dress styles for me to try on. While trying on each of the dresses with Karen, she would give her helpful insight on each of them and talk you through what you liked and didn't like about each one. Even though I had an amazing experience without an appointment on my first visit on a busy Saturday, I do recommend calling ahead to make an appointment. This will ensure that they can plan ahead and that you will have undivided attention. After trying on the dresses, Karen was kind enough to write down each of the style numbers for the dresses that I liked on a business card for me. I continued to shop for the next week at other stores after that day since it was my first day dress shopping, but ultimately, I returned to the Bridal Garden. Their service is spectacular and in my experiences there, Christina, Angela and Karen are very knowledgeable and friendly.

Bridal Garden was the first bridal shop I stopped at during my dress hunt for the perfect wedding dress. It was crowded with a small dressing room, but the best dress shop I've been to. They let me take pictures and compare dresses! It was the only bridal shop that allowed pictures out of all the ones I've been to. They were sweet, accommodating, and friendly. I got all my bridesmaid dresses there and my mother even got her dress there! Best quality of service in any dress shop I've been to
