My sister, mom and myself had the BEST experience at The Perfect Dress! I was extremely nervous about trying on dresses for the first time...I was greeted right away by the staff and introduced to Kim (who, my family wants to adopt!). The shop is fun and vibrant..making even the most nervous bride excited about trying on dresses! Kim walked me through pulling dresses, and wouldn't you know..the second dress I tried on and the ONE that Kim picked out, was my dream dress! It was flawless, and the moment was special. We also found a maid of honor dress for my sister, and dress for my mom, and 2 flower girl dresses! Something else you may not know, is they also offer planning services.
Thank you Kim and The Perfect Dress for helping me find my perfect dress!

I had originally booked an appointment at another bridal shop but when I got there it was AWFUL. I had my fiancé's grandmothers with me so I knew I had to find somewhere to atleast try on a dress. My sister found The Perfect Dress and I was so relieved when I got there. Everyone was so friendly, helpful and accommodating even though I showed up an hour before closing with no appointment. They listened to exactly what I wanted and I found my dress.

The Perfect Dress was a great place to get my dress. They were all very nice, and put up with my long appointments when I had to try on so many dresses because I coudln't make up my mind. Amanda was awesome. She is so nice, and was always so helpful and responsive. She was full of information on all the gowns, veils, etc. I would go back there again for anything else because of the qualify of service she provided.

I purchased my dress in January at The Perfect Dress of Sarasota. The staff was awesome in helping me find my dress. I went to four other dress stores (2 national chains and 2 local stores) before coming to The Perfect Dress. I ended up buying the exact dress I tried on because it was my size and available for purchase.

In September I went in for my first dress fitting. Dana was the seamstress working that day. She listened to what I wanted my dress to look like and then pinned everything. She is very reasonably priced and provides you with an invoice for your records. I live in St. Pete and it is hard for me to get down to Sarasota during the work week for my final fitting. Dana was so flexible and was able to have my final fitting at her home. The dress turned out awesome and fits me like a glove! She really did such an amazing job. Dana always replies to emails and is very professional.

I purchased my dress at The Perfect Dress and also used their wedding planning services. My dress was absolutely gorgeous! Every appoinment I had here was great. Everyone is so kind and helpful. Nena did a fantastic job with the alterations and the fee was very reasonable. She also altered my mother's dress. Vicki did our ceremony and reception at Lakewood Ranch Country Club and it was fabulous! She took care of everything. Not only did she do the decor, she also made the most incredible centerpieces for the tables and made my bouquet and the bridesmaids bouquets. Our friends/guests are still talking about how it was the most beautiful wedding they have ever seen. Vicki is absolutely the best!!!!

I recently got married and I can honestly say visiting The Perfect Dress was the BEST part of the wedding planning process! Everyone on their staff was so friendly and welcoming every time I walked thru the front door, remembering me and the perfect gown I chose. They had an extensive collection of dresses to choose from with a variety of different designers. From couture to traditional, they covered it all, which was great for me considering I had no clue what I wanted. I loved that all the girls were so honest with their opinions, good or bad, but were also very knowledgeable and professional. I knew I was in great hands and it made me feel very comfortable and at ease about the whole process.
Alterations were just as fun and easy, the seamstress was wonderful and very inventive. I didn’t need as many alterations because my dress fit so well, but I did need a hem and a bustle and she gave me so many creative options for the bustle and we decided on a fun, unique, side bustle and it was gorgeous! I loved that I could shop for my accessories as I had my alterations done.
It was very convenient for me that Kim & Vicki with The Perfect Settings are located in the same building. They were there every time I was in and gave me such amazing ideas and suggestions. I used them for all the event décor and floral arrangements and they were more beautiful than anything I can even dream up!
I also had my dress cleaned and preserved there so that I can have it as a keepsake! I had such a wonderful experience with The Perfect Dress and would HIGHLY recommend using them for your big day!

I used the perfect dress for my wedding gown alterations. We were using The Perfect Settings for our decor, so it was really nice I could get my gown altered at the same location.

Their alterations lady is a pro. She had nighttime appointments so my busy-body mom could make it, and she would get me pinned up and ready to go in about 5 minutes per fitting. I had three quick fittings for a hem (about $100) a bodice take-in (about $50) and a bustle (about $100). I found that reasonable for my strapless silk organza ballgown with lots of layers. She made the dress pretty snug which worried me, but BOY WAS SHE RIGHT! The day of it fit perfectly and stayed up.

Ali, who was usually working the dress shop when I was in, was also sweet and attentive. I liked that the staff was so professional and the shop was so lovely and convenient when you're using their other services.

I had a little problem with my dress when it arrived, it was missing some of the detail, they were very accommodating in getting the problem worked out for me. The dress manufacturer had to send me another dress which was a size too big in order to have it in time for my wedding, I was told the alterations would be covered because of the mistake, but I still ended up paying $135 for alterations! They also charged my mom, who got her dress elsewhere, an arm and a leg to alter it, much more than the bridesmaids had to pay, who got much more work done. I would recommend buying the dress from this store, but not using their alternations lady (Nena) because she is not very professional at all. She also was unable to tell my girls what they should "expect" to pay for their alterations until it was already done, by that time, there was no way for them to shop around.
