Paula redesigned my mother's wedding gown for me to wear to the bridal luncheon. It was absolutely stunning. I also had purchased my debutante dress from this shop in 2014. Paula redesigned this dress for my rehearsal dinner. My mom, Jake's mom, and of course my wedding dress came from The Poinsett Bride. They were all perfect for us. I would highly recommend this shop.

Paula Makus is a magician. I purchased my dress several sizes too big, online, and with her skills she transformed the dress into a perfectly fitting and uber flattering dress. When I bought my dress, I felt it was fine; that it would do. On the day I wore it, I felt beautiful. I cannot thank her enough. She gave me a shape I didn't even think I had. I was worried I would have to adjust my strapless dress, but I never pulled it up a single time the entire day. They did as many fittings as I asked for, which totaled about 4-5. The dress had a lace overlay and a silk underskirt, and both were tailored perfectly. Paula is not inexpensive, but I am SO glad she worked on my dress, because it was completely worth it. She has experience, skill and talent. I would not go anywhere else if you have a precious dress that needs work.

This shop cares WAY more about their bottom line than their customers. Even though it's been a few months since my wedding, it still bothers me how terrible my experience was. Initially the ladies were nice and I was excited to find a dress off the rack that I loved. I am not a typical bride and didn't want to spend a fortune for a dress, so was hoping it wouldn't cost more than a few hundred (at most!) for basic alterations. However, they never explained how much each alteration was going to cost, and for some reason I thought they'd let me know, or a least tell me when I had surpassed the couple hundred I first told them I expected to spend. I did have super basic straps added, but was surprised to discover the alterations cost the same price as my dress!! IN ADDITION to that, many (20+) of the beautiful white petals on the dress had fallen off while they'd had it, and they didn't bother to mention it or try to reattach at least a handful on the front so that it didn't look so bald and terrible. I was so distraught over the price the night before flying out for my wedding, that I didn't notice the petals missing until that evening. What an incredible disappointment.

After my friend’s great experience at Poinsett Bride, I was excited for my appointment on 11/30/13 at 2:30. The only reason for 2 stars for flexibility is that we got there at 1:45 and they took me right then. After telling the saleswoman my max of $1,500, she showed me the section of the dress room to look at. She pulled several dresses while my mom put some sample sale dresses (50%off!) directly into the dressing room. I got to a dress (Romona Keveza Legends L250, size 10) that after putting it on, I knew was a big contender. While taking it off, I noticed the price tag of $2,850. I thought it must be from the sale rack in order to be in my price range, and I immediately asked the saleswoman. She said that must be the case, but she would find out and make sure. After a few more dresses, I asked her if she'd found out and she said, "Yes, I did, and it is 50% off so it will be $1,425." I put it on again, added a belt and veil, and had my family in tears. The saleswoman continued to say what a great deal it was while the seamstress came to look at any alterations that needed to be done. I was seconds from buying it when the owner came and unzipped the dress right on the pedestal. She found the tag and said curtly, "This dress is not on sale, its $2,850" and walked away. No apology. No explanation. Nothing. I held back tears (and some choice words) and went to take off my dream dress. While in the dressing room, the saleswoman said, "I don't know where that dress came from, they were bringing all kinds of dresses in here, I really wasn't sure it was on sale." I said nothing but thought, when I asked her to confirm it was on sale, she lied straight to my face, and now she is blaming my family. There were many things that I and my family could, and maybe should, have said, but we were all in shock. My future MIL thinks they tried to bait and switch me on purpose. This could not have been handled any worse, and I will continue to tell all of my friends.

When I was a student at Clemson I came to downtown Greenville for something and ended up walking past the Poinsett Bride. I remember thinking to myself, "I would love to shop for my wedding dress one day at a place like that." A few year later when I got engaged it was time to start shopping for dresses, but wasn't planning on shopping here because I thought they would be out of my price range (I was hoping to stick under $1000 but would consider up to $1500). My mom convinced me that we should go see what they had to offer and I'm so glad she did. It's true that they are generally a little more upscale than some other bridal shops but they still had plenty of options in my price range. We'd shopped at 4 other area stores and had 3 dresses in the running but as soon as I tried one on, I knew it was "the one." I was afraid to fall in love with it until I saw the price tag, convinced it was too beautiful and too detailed to fall in my price range. But lo and behold, it was only $816! As soon as I came out of the dressing room I could tell by the look on my mom's and sisters' faces that they loved it as much as I did. We all cried and bought the dress right then and there. They did a good job on my alterations as well. Very pleased with my experience!

Before coming to Poinsett Bride, I had been to 4 other dress shops and tried on hmm 30 to 50 dresses in Charlotte . I came here to see a specific dress but ended up falling in love with another one. Paula was great! She really helped me find the right dress at my price point. She is working with me to make the dress exactly what I want. She talked the designer into making the dress in a darker shade since they only make in one color currently. She is tailoring the top to be just like the dress that I loved but was much more expensive.

My sister found her dress here two years ago and had the same great service. Her dress was a sample and Paula made it look like it was made for her!
I loved that Paula really tries to keep you in your price range while finding you the perfect dress. I did not encounter this at any of the other shops I went to. My dress is perfect and I am so glad I came to Poinsette.

Paula and her staff are the best in the business. Paula is brutally honest and her focus isn't just about moving out dresses. She wants each and every bride that enters her store to look and feel like a million bucks on her big day!

I went several places to try on wedding dresses, but none of them compared to Poinnsett Bride. They were very professional and made the experience wonderful. I had tried on several dresses and had one I really liked, then Lauren said she wanted me to try on one more dress she had in mind. It ended up being the perfect dress! She listened to everything I was saying about the other dresses and found the right one for me.
