The English Dept. is exactly what I hoped to find when I launched into wedding dress shopping - a small, personal experience with beautiful unique simple dresses that are not to froo-froo, poofy or 1000 lbs. I was planning my Portland wedding from Brooklyn, NY but wanted to find most items in Portland, so I flew in for a whirlwind weekend of dress shopping. I had done a little research (and my mom has looked far and wide in Portland & Seattle), so we had a list of places to check out, but English Dept. was my first and favorite spot. We walked in and Chelsea helped in a non-pushy way. I tried on about 8-10 dresses with my dress (Elizabeth Dye's Circa dress) being the last. I fell in love with the feel of the dress (dancing was a priority and it was not heavy and could move), the simple, elegant look and all. Then, Chelsea pulled out a beautiful Twig & Honey headpiece and I fell in love with that too. It was a one-stop wedding dress shopping excursion. My mom and I went to a few more places but came back to English Dept. the next day and bought the dress. I just got married and had the time of my life - eating, dancing and wearing my dress until we closed down the after-party bar at 2:30am. I love it even more seeing the pictures. Thank you Elizabeth, Chelsea and the English Dept. team!

Everyone at the English Dept. was very helpful and sweet. They also have a beautiful selection of dresses that are simple and elegant. This is not your typical cheesey bridal shop!

Lovely small boutique featuring beautiful dresses, all affordable. This is not a pretentious bridal boutique - the women were all so sweet and patient while I tried on a zillion dresses. They gave honest feedback and were very helpful when it came to placing my order. My dress was absolutely perfect - it delivered on time and only needed minor alterations. I highly recommend this place!

Elizabeth Dye not only creates beautiful dresses herself, she carries a line of lovely wedding dresses for those who aren't into "wedding dresses." She went out of her way to help make my dress something I was lukewarm about to a semi-custom creation that I loved.

Elizabeth Dye at the English Dept created the dress that I wore for my wedding. She did a wonderful job creating a really unique dress that I LOVED! If you are looking for something less traditional you should check her out, you're not going to find oversized princess ball gowns or anything like that, but she does have beautiful wedding and bridesmaid dresses from her own line as well as from Vera Wang, Jennie Yoo, Thread and Simple Silhouettes. And the best part is that she's really affordable!!!
