I do not recommend this vendor! There dresses and tuxes are very nice and they have high quality for a good value. However, if you want nothing but the run around, excuses and headaches go here. They were unapologetic for all their mishaps and use nothing but excuses. Good luck even getting them to return your call half the time. If you want worry, frustration and aggrevation The Hope Chest is where you can find that. We are surprised this business even survives!

I ordered my bridesmaids dresses through The Hope Chest because they had the best price I could find, but in retrospect, I should have gone through a different shop. The difference in price was not worth the difference in service or professionalism. The space is cluttered and dirty, the service was awkward at best, and although my order ultimately came out just fine, there were also some communication issues along the way.

I also shopped for wedding dresses there at the same time I ordered bridesmaids dresses, and that experience left much to be desired. The garment bags were yellowed and dirty, the gowns seemed outdated, and they gave me dresses to try on that wouldn't have even come close to fitting, so I didn't even bother trying most of them on. They also had no necessary undergarments (like corsets or skirts) for trying on gowns that you would normally be able to use at other shops, so I wound up only trying one dress on and then leaving.

The staff is friendly and they try, but they're disorganized; the space behind the desk is very cluttered, and the woman who was helping me misplaced my order within five minutes while I was still standing right there. Every time I called, I had to leave a message and they didn't return my calls very promptly; sometimes I had to wait several days to hear back from them.

That being said, my order arrived earlier than the anticipated date, and the dresses were perfect, but I would not recommend The Hope Chest based on the above experience.

Terrible experience! I never received a call for when my bridesmaid dresses were in originally. So finally i called because it had been close to the wedding and weeks after they said they would be in. The woman told me she had called me a couple of weeks before and had left a VM with my and now the bridesmaids would be getting late charges for not picking up the dresses right away. I explained i had never received an original call and that if no one got a hold of me why we couldn’t get follow up call before late fees started occurring. She stated they are only open certain hours and they do not have the man power to do things like this and did not believe me that i had never received an initial call. They are only open by appointment so when we wanted to pick up our dresses it took days to even get a call back. Not sure how they are still in business...Needless to say most of the bridesmaids were charged extra but she did send me a coupon for dry cleaning on my dress...Never recommend to anyone, and neither would my five bridesmaids!

Fantastic selection, fantastic value and fantastic service! The Hope Chest was not my first stop in looking for a dress, but it was definitely my last. If any bride is as busy as me, I would recommend making them your first stop, because they have all you need and more. I could not believe the options I had. At other shops, I was lucky to find one dress I liked, but at The Hope Chest I found 5 of them that I absolutely loved! In the end, the shop owner really helped me make my final decision, and it turned out perfect. I also got my bridesmaid & flower girl dresses and tuxes there. They even had the right dress for my mom, which made her look so beautiful that it brought tears to my eyes. Thank you to the staff at The Hope Chest for making my wedding day truly memorable and perfect in every way!

We had almost 18 months to plan our wedding originally, but after I ordered my wedding dress, bridesmaids and tuxedos at The Hope Chest, we found out my mom had cancer and the prognosis wasn't very good, so my husband and I moved our wedding up almost a full year so we could make sure my mom could be there. I was so worried I wasn't going to be able to get everything I had ordered in time for the wedding because by the time we made the date change we only had a couple months. But the staff at The Hope Chest was amazingly understanding and accommodating. They did whatever they had to do to put a rush on the orders for the dresses and everything was here in plenty of time. They were so great because they continually told me not to worry and that they would take care of things, which they did. It really took a lot of stress off my shoulders and I was so happy to be able to have the wedding of my dreams and that my mom was able to be a part of it all. I don't know that any other shop I visited would have put forth the time and energy to making my wedding so important. The Hope Chest made me feel like it was their top priority. I'm so grateful for their help and so happy I didn't choose anyplace else!

They made planning our wedding so easy because they had so much to offer at one place. They had the best selection of dresses of anywhere I looked. I got a great deal on my wedding gown, and I got so many compliments on it at the wedding. Everyone wanted to know where I got it, and I told everyone about this cute little shop in Ham Lake. The owner and her daughter were awesome to work with, and are very knowledgeable. I would recommend this shop to anyone getting married. We got our tuxes and bridesmaid dresses there too, and everyone looked beautiful on our wedding day! Thanks so much for making our day unforgettable!
