Dress shopping at The Dress by Nicole was a wonderful experience for me. Each time I went in, the staff was extremely helpful and professional. I ended up buying not only my dress there, but also the belt, hair piece, and shoes. Although you couldn’t really see the shoes – they were absolutely amazing and recommended by store. I wore Tom’s wedges and they were extremely comfortable!!
The Dress by Nicole also recommended Mary for alterations. Mary was excellent. Also, what helped me out was that the store dropped off the dress to Mary. I know this is a small detail, but I live in the city so by the store doing this for me it relieved me from taking a special trip out to Wheaton to transport the dress to the alterations.

I absolutely loved The Dress by Nicole and my whole experience at the store! I first met Nicole when I was a bridesmaid in my friend's wedding and she was very helpful with getting sized for and ordering my bridesmaid dress. I knew I wanted to visit The Dress when I got engaged! I visited the store with my mom and sister and explained to Nicole the styles and designers I liked. She helped us pick out some dresses in our price range and I fell in love with the sixth one I tried on! I actually had a "dress moment" and started to cry the second I saw myself in the mirror. Nicole even chose a belt to go with my dress that complemented it beautifully. Buying my wedding dress was one of the easiest parts of my wedding planning process and Nicole helped to make it as smooth as it was. My sister even picked out the dress all five of my bridesmaids wore. On my wedding day (7.26.14), I felt so incredibly beautiful! I received so many compliments on my dress and my bridesmaids' dresses. I couldn't have been happier with how the colors and everything looked! I am truly thankful for Nicole's professionalism and her genuine interest in my special day! I would definitely recommend all brides visit The Dress by Nicole!!!

The Dress by Nicole is a beautiful shop with a nice selection of gorgeous wedding gowns. The staff was very helpful, knowledgeable, and friendly and made the entire process of finding 'the dress' very special. They were also very helpful with working with the entire bridal party for both bridesmaid dresses and tuxes. I would highly recommend this shop.

I had the most wonderful experience with The Dress by Nicole. Everyone that we worked with was absolutely lovely and so helpful! The experience of dress shopping at The Dress was so much more intimate and enjoyable than all of the other boutiques that I visited. The girls there were very knowledgeable and helpful, and because of their recommendations, I ended up with the perfect dress that I probably otherwise would not have tried on. Of course the dress that I loved was over my budget, but Nicole sold me the sample and I ended up being to afford it :) I absolutely LOVED my dress and have been sending all of my newly engaged friends over to The Dress so they can be as happy as I was on my big day!

As an international bride (I am based in Australia), I was originally aprehensive about purchasing a dress overseas.
Since my first email, Nicole was polite, friendly and super helpful. her great price sealed the deal.
Needless to say, when the dress arrived today I was very excited when the dress came spot on to what I ordered!! no horror stories here!!!

I hit up at least 10 different dress shops when shopping for my wedding dress. This place was the BEST dress shop by FAR.

I had my own consultant help me the whole time I was there. They let me try on every dress I wanted, they offered any assistance they could. I live out of the country and they offered shipping to my house or pick up at the store. The dress came in exactly when they said it would and it was perfect!

They recommended someone to do the alterations - Brinda- and she was great as well. I was on a tight schedule (as I was visiting) and we were able to get all 4 appointments done in one week.

The customer service is great and the dresses are great. Beautiful dresses for a reasonable price. There were plenty of dresses to choose from, however not too many you were going to have a panic attack.

I will recommend to everyone looking for the right wedding dress.

Wow, I cannot say enough wonderful things about The Dress by Nicole...

I worked with Nicole directly and she was not only amazingly helpful, she was available to me via email & telephone as I needed it after I chose my gown. My entire experience from beginning to end was VERY personal, VERY professional, and VERY much the "event" I wanted & needed.

I like the "small boutique" experience and knew the designers TDBN carried. I am not one to try on 100 dresses; I explained what I wanted & saw exactly what I asked for. Suggestions on alterations, underpinnings, and the like were quick and polite.

If you want a personal shopping experience for your big day, understanding that this particular shop isn't going to have 100s of dresses for you to try on (but you can see the designers they carry on their website), this is the place for you. I'll take that over a haute boutique that is only interested in my budget (I didn't have one) and how fast they could sell me a dress that was not "the one" for me.

Many thanks to Nicole and the incredible staff at TDBN for a wonderful experience I won't forget anytime soon.
