I had an absolutely amazing experience with The Plumed Serpent! It was my first dress appointment, and Hayley made me feel so at ease- she was very personable and welcoming to the family I brought with me, knowledgeable about all of the dresses and committed to finding me the perfect one! Without giving her much to go on, she pulled dress after dress that looked great.

I tried on about 12 dresses or so and thought I found the one, but had another appointment for later that day so I was hesitant to buy without comparing the dress with some other designers I was interested in. I did feel a little pressured to make a decision at that point - but once the team saw I was nervous to buy at my first appointment, they helped me make an appointment later in the day just in case I wanted to come back for the dress, which was great.

The second shop demonstrated to me how completely superior the experience is at The Plumed Serpent. The Plumed Serpent made me feel like I was the only bride in the shop, was attentive and took their time finding dresses and clipping me into them properly so I could get the best idea of how they would look. The samples were also in pristine condition compared to what I experienced elsewhere.

I ended up going back and buying the dress, and I'm so happy! It really is perfect, and I appreciated having the opportunity to go back later in the day in order to feel confident in my decision. This shop is a must for any bride looking for her dream dress.

I had a wonderful experience working with the Plumed Serpent. All of the women at the salon were incredibly kind and helpful. All of the dresses they pulled matched the style and vision I wanted, and the dress we found was beautiful and perfect for me. I also found the dress within an hour, which suited me very well since I did not want to be going to tons of different salons and trying on dozens of dresses. They had a really nice selection of quality dress. The ladies helped me pick excellent accessories too, so I was able to create a unique look for the big day. Additionally, the seamstress who tailored my dress was an absolute dream. She was so talented and she made sure the dress fit me perfectly. She was also really patient and showed us exactly how to bustle the dress. I honestly could not have asked for a better dress buying experience!

Oh my goodness - I just loved my experience at the Plumed Serpent! I went in over the weekend after months of research online and found Modern Trousseau, a local designer that I loved. When I saw that the designer was having a trunk show at the Plumed Serpent, I was so thrilled and called for an appointment right away. I was a little nervous walking into the store, but Katie (my consultant) put me right at ease. She is so easy to work with, and listened to everything I was looking for. My appointment was extra special because Callie Tein, the Modern Trousseau designer, was in the store that day for the trunk show so she stayed with us the whole appointment. I only tried on 8 dresses, and Katie was so good at narrowing down what I was looking for. I was so nervous that I was going to be horribly indecisive, but it was such a stress-free and wonderful experience. Katie is absolutely amazing at what she does. There are only two appointments going on at one time, so you get a truly personalized experience. If you are in the area, I highly recommend the Plumed Serpent. You will not be disappointed!

Their dresses are extremely over priced. They advertise winning awards from The Knot but you can find the dresses cheaper on The Knot. The staff are very friendly but in the end I felt taken advantage of. I was told they would send me my measurements and talk to a designer for me and they never got back to me. Made it difficult to me an appointment when I was an out of town customer trying to pick up my dress. I would email the owner directly and get responses from other workers who were clueless about what I was talking about. My dress had imperfections to it. Stitching wasn't done well.

Alison and her staff have that magic touch that makes wedding planning such a joy. I went on a "practice run" with my Mom before shopping in the city, and my dream dress was the fourth I tried on. Alison's clear expertise--and her genuine warmth--immediately put me at ease, and I feel in such good hands as a Plumed Serpent bride.

As a born-and-bred Fairfield County gal who has lived in NYC for 7 years, I can say with confidence this level of sophistication and service can't be matched by an overcrowded Manhattan salon. Save the headache and go straight to Plumed Serpent!

Loved my experience at The Plumed Serpent! All of the girls were great to work with - tried to stick with one girl but got a different girl helping us everything - not ideal but it was ok and they were great. A little disappointed about the fit with the undergarment (which i bought from them) - it wasn't altered low enough and showed out of the back of my dress the day of - therefore, I had to go without the undergarment (kind of a waste of money at that point). Overall, my experience was great, LOVED my dress - I would recommend them to others

I cannot say enough good things about this bridal shop! I had a good idea of the dress I wanted, but was having a very hard time finding one that matched my vision. This shop was recommended by a friend who had purchased her dress there years ago, and making an appointment with them was one of the best decisions that I could have made. I emailed my thoughts on the style I was looking for, and when I arrived, Julie had pulled about 6 dresses that all matched my description. After trying on a few of them, I asked if it was possible to make a modification to one of the dresses so that it would fit the look that I was searching for. She confirmed that it would be possible, and that completely made my day. I went back to the first dress that I had tried on, and now knowing that we could make this small change, I knew this was the one. I purchased my dream dress that day, and then had to wait, somewhat impatiently, for it to be complete. I had come to the initial appointment by myself, as I was tired of dragging around my family and friends to bridal shops only to be disappointed. It was ironic that I found the dress that day, but I still celebrated with a glass of champagne while we finished the paperwork. When my family came with me for my first fitting, I held my breath, hoping that the dress turned out how I had envisioned it, and was relieved that it was so beautiful. Joy did a phenomenal job with the alterations, and I really found myself looking forward to all the Thursday afternoons I spend at the shop, watching the dress begin to fit. Thank you both for turning the most stressful part of my process into the most effortless. I would recommend you a thousand times over!

These three stars are for the friendly staff and small atmosphere of this bridal salon. Kim, Julie, and Kathy, the seamstress, were god sends. I purchased a dress a year in advance of my wedding on trunk show. Now I will admit during the 5 month wait time for it to arrive I was a naughty bride. I saw a dress I thought I loved more and reached out about potentially changing. The owner was kind then telling me what my options were and that I should see my dress first. Very good point, so I did. (Stop looking at dresses when you find yours!) Unfortunately while my dress was beautiful, it had some inner lining issues. Line issues that were not present on the sample. A few lines were so prominent that they formed a very large V pointing toward a certain lady part that you really don't want your guests focusing on. When my mother and I brought this issue up, we were met with some solves in addition to many confusing conversations from the owner that this is what we purchased (false) & for an incremental fee we could solve our issue- (to get the dress we originally purchased). My mother took conversations from here as I lost interest in one of the more special pieces of the day. I didn't want a veil, didn't want any accessories because I couldn't very well have this arrow pointing to my lady zone so we would have to put our money towards this fix. She and the owner came to a resolution where it wouldn't cost us more money, we thought, we went to their trunk show purchased the veil and two additional accessories. Feeling good at the second fitting the dress was lined (because Kathy rocks!) &we were approached again for money to pay for the lining and work that was done. After we spent more money on the accessories. We argued again and did not end up paying anything additional. What an unnecessary amount of stress and back and forth for a couple of hundred dollars?! I'm not saying to not go here because the staff is lovely, just take pictures & be mindful of what you buy.

Every fitting was helpful, and I attended a trunk show here where I got great accessories! The seamstress that we worked with was phenomenal as well- very skilled.
