The crystal bride was my 4th and final stop wedding dress shopping. The shop itself is adorable and welcoming, and the staffing is incredible. I had the absolute best experience with Lyndsey. She listened to what I liked and didn't like and made me feel so comfortable. She took my budget into account and didn't try to push the limits. Thanks so much for making this such a great experience!!!

I loved everything about getting my dress here. I knew I wanted to look there, it is clean and inviting so I trusted them with my dress (not like some other dirty stores). Kayla was awesome! I bought my dress the 1st day of looking. I knew what I wanted, but had a hart time explaining and I never could have done it and found the perfect dress if it weren't for Kayla!!!

Alterations with Mila were always a hoot! She did a very nice job! It is totally worth the price when you trust the people and feel like you've known them even if you've only been in 4 times. I was getting married in Geneva (Riverside Receptions - ALSO LOVE LOVE LOVE) and I was able to leave my dress there until the day of the rehearsal dinner so it was SO nice not to tote it home and back!

Don't waste time anywhere else. Go to the Crystal Bride. I'm sure they are all awesome, but working with Kayla was a dream! My Geneva Wedding on 1-7-17 was perfect.

This. Place. The stuff of dreams. I tell ya. I became engaged in September 2015, set our date on 12/31/16, and off to planning we went. I was NOT thrilled for dress shopping. See, I'm curvy, and I know sample sizes in the style of dress I wanted (mermaid, trumpet, fit/flare) would look ridiculous unless they had a wider range of sizes. Don't believe me? Well, I went to two bridal shops before this one, and had a terrible, horrible, miserable, "let's just elope or skip this all together." time at both. Sample sizes were made for women who are a size 2-6, with a few in the 8-10 range - I wear a 12-14. When I asked for larger samples, the other places brought them!! But they were MUCH bigger sizes, causing the opposite problem, or they were more of a "second wedding" style, or OUT of style completely, pulled from a yellowing back closet. So, you can imagine my lack of excitement when I headed to The Crystal Bride on 2/20/16. I was like "ef all this, imma wear a power red lip, try on some dresses, cry, and then have a drink to get on." But it was NOT terrible, it was PERFECTION. I worked with Rebecca, and when I explained my problem, like I told the other shops, she not only listened, but she TOOK IT INTO CONSIDERATION. She pulled samples in my size, in modern, up-to-date styles, and did not scoff or laugh at my hips not lyin'. She was kind, helpful, and before I put on a dress, told me the budget, the risk/change of alterations, and possible pitfalls. I only worked with her, but I heard similar things from the other women as they assisted future brides. It was a busy Saturday morning, but they made everyone feel like THE one and only bride. I never thought I would experience it, but I did have "that" feeling when I put on "the" dress - and I strongly feel it was due to the customer service at The Crystal Bride. I tell EVERYONE who gets engaged in this area to go here.

Amazing service, gorgeous dress! The whole experience was easy, fun, and exciting! My sister got her wedding gown here three years ago and had a fantastic experience, so when I got engaged, it was the first shop I called for an appointment. I bought a beautiful headband to go with it as well. They are very accommodating to special requests and will do everything they can to make sure you are happy. I did get scolded for not having shoes at my first fitting (my bad), but otherwise were really wonderful to work with. Happy dress hunting, and don't forget your shoes!!

This place is ALWAYS busy! Definitely make an appointment way ahead of time. My wedding was in October and we went in in January, so roughly 8-10 months beforehand. The initial appointment was very accommodating. I went in with a certain idea of what my dress was going to be like, but when my mom and the vendor picked some dresses out, I ended up picking something completely different than what I thought I wanted. Then by July, my dress order came in and throughout the remaining months, I had 4 fittings. That varies depending on your body type, so plan accordingly. I ended up getting my dress on sale, but then we also purchased a belt and a veil. They may seem unnecessary, but they ended up completing the dress and kicking it up a notch.

This was the only place I went to find the perfect dress and Kayla helped me find that within the first hour. She was amazing and really knew what she was doing. Going into the appointment I would have never thought I would have gotten the dress I did but now I couldn't imagine falling in love with any other dress. Request her for sure! Also keep an open mind because I thought I would never like beading on a gown but then I fell in love with the one that she had picked out for me. The questions she asks during the appointment are also very helpful and productive.
