Lauren at The Wedding Bell is fantastic. She helped me coordinate all of the different colors that I was trying to integrate into my bridal party/reception, giving me several different options for tying everything together. She also gave me insights into the pros and cons of using different designers for the bridesmaids dresses. She was willing to help, but was not pushy at all. I highly recommend her, especially if you are someone who needs a little assistance with pulling everything together!

Granted this was the first place I tried on wedding gowns, it was amazing! I think the consultant I had was named Lauren, and she was awesome. She didn't push her ideas on me, but when appropriate offered advice. I had a good sense of what I liked and didn't like and wasn't going to leave much up to the other people I had with me anyway. She had me go through the racks and pull a few things for myself and she pulled some dresses as well. She was very professional in the dressing room and very helpful with getting the dresses on and off. They don't have as many dresses as other places I'm sure, but it really didn't matter. I found my dress there that day and it just so happened to be the 2nd one I tried!! I find it very convenient that they can keep your gown there, where it's safe and saves me from having to hide it in my apartment from my fiance! I was lucky to have shopped during a time when they had an awesome deal going and received a discount for buying the sample. It saved us almost $500! Definitely give this place a chance!!

I want to thank everyone on WW for their reviews about Wedding Bell. This place is wonderful! Our consultant Grace (AMAZINGGG GRAACCEE, we would sing to her) was awesome. I was a nervous wreck going in, but Grace made the process for my mom and I smooth, easy and fun. She really had a great eye for my body type and style. Literally the first dress she picked out for me was the nail on the head and ended up being the winner! I felt comfortable and I appreciate Grace letting my mom help out with putting dresses on me. Those moments were very special to her. My dress is stunning and the price with my veil was amazing. It was nice to have a beautiful variety of dresses to choose from in my size (size 14) and also being able to stay within budget. Everyone was so nice and professional. A BIG plus was that the dress Grace picked for me didn't even need alternations really. It was off the rack as a sample dress and fit me like a glove! I currently live out of state, so the very minor things I needed done by Hilda may have required me to fly BACK out to Lansing. But they were so flexible and got me in with her the NEXT DAY! HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend. One of the best moments for my mommy and I during this whole wedding process. Still overjoyed!

I had an AMAZING experience at the Wedding Bell, it honestly couldn't have been better!! Every person who worked there was nice, friendly and helpful, delightful and a pleasure to work with. The staff created a very enjoyable and relaxed experience. I purchased my wedding gown for my August wedding there and I couldn't be more excited. I think ALL brides need to purchase their wedding dress or bridesmaids dress with them. Prior to visiting The Wedding Bell, I had visited all of the bridal salons around the Lansing and Mid-Michigan area and the service at the the others didn't come close to comparing. Additionally, the selection and value at the Wedding Bell was the best as well!

My consultant Lauren was great!! In fact all the girls that work there were great. They had such a great selection of dresses and since I have had friends who have gotten married there as well order dresses from there I knew they were a reputable shop! Hilda, who did the alterations for my dress did such a great job! The groom and best man also rented their tuxes from here and they looked sharp!

Everyone looked great on our wedding day and it was all thanks to the wedding bell!

The Wedding Bell was great! I actually found the dress that I wanted a different bridal salon, but because they were so busy and I waited for 20 minutes for someone to help lace me up, I ended up walking away from that store without buying. Then I went to the Wedding Bell with my family and tried on the same dress and re-fell in love with it. Service really matters and they have service down. I also would have bought my bridesmaids dresses from there, but the girls found a different dress they liked at another store. The Wedding Bell was great and I recommend them to every bride looking for her dress.

I can't say enough good things about Katie, Lauren, and Hilda. By the end of my 13 mo. engagement, I felt like they were my close friends. They recognized me by name and were always friendly and willing to help.

My dress, my mother's dress, and my headpiece arrived promptly as promised. We loved everything! The staff is so friendly and Hilda is amazing. My dress was very detailed and had to be taken in numerous times prior to the wedding, but looked amazing.

I have recommended the Wedding Bell to everyone I know.

Katie and her staff are absolutely wonderful. I purchased a sample dress and Hilda was able to transform it to fit me perfectly. I was planning my wedding from out of town, and communicating with the store was always very easy. I got my dress, veil, and the bridesmaids' dresses at Wedding Bell and was very happy with everything. I would encourage everyone to come take a look - just because it's a boutique it doesn't necessarily mean it will be more expensive than a chain store's dresses, and the quality and service you'll receive will be excellent.

We purchased my wedding gown, mother of the bride gown, 4 bridesmaid gowns, and rented our tuxes from The Wedding Bell. It truly is a one stop shop for wedding attire.

I ordered a Pronovias gown from The Wedding Bell and it was/is gorgeous! Pronovias make such excellent quality dresses for a great cost and The Wedding Bell is the only shop in the Lansing area that carries this line.

Katie Love is a doll. We absolutely loved working with her.

We also used Hilda from The Wedding Bell for alterations on my gown, some of the bridesmaids gowns, and my mothers gown. In addition, she made my garter from the scraps she had cut from my gown (beautiful!). She also repaired my cathedral veil that I borrowed from my sister that had a rip in it from her wedding.

I've since returned to The Wedding Bell (drove 1 hour to get there as we've since moved), just to be measured for an upcoming wedding I'm in. I wouldn't trust anyone else.

HIGHLY recommended!

This is the only shop in town that sells Pronovias gowns. I didn�t know that was what I wanted until I tried a few on. Everyone in the shop is super helpful and they always remembered me when I came in for fittings. The initial dress shopping experience was great; no one was pushy but everyone was helpful. Hilda, the seamstress, did a great job fitting the dress to my body. They don�t have the largest selection of gowns, but I think they have the best.

The staff was very nice and helpful at The Wedding Bell and the owner Katie is wonderful! She will do what she needs to in order to make things easier for you. She understands the stress a bride is under and does everything she can to make the wedding dress the least stressful and most fun part! She has a very cute boutique that has a large inventory for its size. Trunk shows come through now and then expanding your opportunities to find that one dress. Katie's mom actually found my dress for me one day- I didn't think I would ever wear a lacey dress, but she insisted I try it on. I fell in love with it! And when the dress company messed up the train when they altered/sized it for my height at the factory, Katie made sure it was fixed at her boutique so that it was right and looked like the model / store gown. For this I am very grateful. I can't say enough how glad I am I chose The Wedding Bell. And Hilda the seamstress made my gown fit like a glove- she was excellent as well. Katie and her staff made shopping for, selecting, and altering my dress and my bridesmaids gowns one of the most fun and best experiences of the whole wedding planning process.

Katie, Hilda, and The Wedding Bell are highly recommended from us!

I bought my dress at The Wedding Bell and was (am) so thrilled with it. It was definitely "my dress". It fit me like a glove and was just what I was looking for (lace, minimal "frills"). Most of my experiences with The Wedding Bell were great. Katie, the owner, is absolutely fantastic. If you're having any issues, contact her directly and you won't be disappointed. A few of the employees were not my favorite, however. The one that measured my bridesmaids for their dresses did a bad job. They were all sized 1-3 sizes too big (which we suspected), so we ended up going back to get resized. Other than that, I loved The Wedding Bell. They were very personable and made me feel comfortable. I also used the seamstress who works through their shop, Hilda, and she was great!! She literally took my dress from fitting alright to fitting perfectly. I don't know how she did it (she barely had to measure me or pin anything), but she definitely worked her magic.

Overall, great place. I liked the styles of dresses they carried, they had a lot of options for my bridesmaids, and the owner is FANTASTIC! I'll say it again; if you have any issues, go straight to Katie.

Great service and gorgeous dresses in an intimate environment that lets you have that special moment with your family instead of feeling like you're just another bride in a bride factory.

The staff at the wedding bell gave me the experience I was hoping for when I started shopping for my wedding dress. I was their only client, unlike with larger places that will have more than one appointment at a time. I also didn't feel rushed and the staff was so friendly and accommodating for the large party I had with me. They worked with my budget and made my dress decision easy, I recommend them to everyone.

I didn't buy my wedding dress at The Wedding Bell, but I brought it there to have Hilda alter it. She did a fabulous job and I'm very happy with how it came out. Here are her major pros and cons:
PROS:
1) She's very meticulous, and doesn't mind having you come back a million times to get everything just right. She does all the alterations in very small stages, so you can see how something looks and change your mind as you go. For example, I had her change the neckline of my dress, and rather than doing it in one big swoop, she lowered it a little, had me try it on, we modified the change from there, etc. I didn't mind going in many times and really appreciated that she took the time to get it just right.
2) The price she quoted me was reasonable (equal or less than the two other seamstresses I got estimates from), and best of all, she stuck to it even when she had to redo a couple things midway through the process.
3) Midway through the process I found out I was moving out of MI and we needed to speed up the end date by a few weeks. Hilda didn't blink an eye, said "no problem, we can get it done by then," and then made it happen. She even did one final touch-up alteration the night before I moved and I picked my dress up as we were packing the moving truck. She was also very flexible regarding when I made my appointments.
4) She won't BS you. She was very up-front about what could be done and what couldn't, and what would look good and what wouldn't. She even had a couple ideas of her own regarding changes to be made (in addition to the ones I requested) and they definitely improved the dress. CONS:
The only real con I experienced was that she rescheduled on me twice (hence the 4/5 on flexibility), both times the morning of the day of my appointment. I had rearranged stuff around the appointments and this was pretty inconvenient, but in the end, it certainly wasn't the end of the world and I would definitely go back to her.

Everyone at The Wedding Bell that helped me before my wedding was just wonderful to work with. I was nervous about dress shopping after reading horror stories in bridal books, about scams, mark-ups, etc, but I never had one doubt after going to the Wedding Bell. They let my mom help me try on the dresses, which she liked, and didn't even ask us about price, just let us shop and look at prices on the dresses ourselves. Even gave us a discount for buying on the first time we came in! And we got discounts on my veil too. Would highly recommend taking a look at the Wedding Bell.

Although I live in Colorado and that's where my wedding was, I am originally from East Lansing, Michigan. While home for a visit in June 2010, I went dress shopping with my mom and fell in love with a dress at the Wedding Bell.

The staff was very helpful and promised me that the dress would be ready by the next time I visited, in December.

We bought the dress and it arrived in the store in October or November, plenty of time.

I had a very tight schedule during my December visit and the shop's seamstress, Hilda, was amazing. She met with me 3 times in 4 days, I think. The work was very well done.

The only thing that kept me from giving a full 5 star rating was the way that the dress was packaged to send to me in Colorado. It was in a light cloth garment bag just placed in a box. Although it was FedEx that left it outside in the snow when it was supposed to have a signature, I felt very lucky that nothing happened to the dress with so little protection.

In any case, I will recommend the Wedding Bell to my friends and family. (almost no need since my stepmother both had bought her dress there as well and was very happy with her experience:)

Although I actually purchased my dress from a different vendor (that is no longer in business!), I HIGHLY recommend The Wedding Bell for alterations! Hilda, the on-site tailor, is AMAZING! She completely transformed my dress, which I purchased off-the-rack 2 sizes too big! When she was done, it fit like a glove! And, she knew what she was doing...I didn't have to tell her what needed to be "fixed;" she immediately knew and set to work fixing it...although the alterations were fairly expensive (though I had LOTS of alterations), it was totally worth it!

I would never recommend anywhere else, I had a really wonderful experience there. The only issue was the alterations lady had a somewhat difficult schedule for me to work around, but she was definitely worth it.

the wedding bell as an amazing collection of bridal gowns. They also make the process of trying on dresses a joy and something really special (as it should be). I found the staff was always much more helpful when you made an appointment, but overall they are very attentive. I would recommend the wedding bell a hundred times over a larger chain such as davids bridal that can't give you the attention you deserve.

Katie, the owner of The Wedding Bell, was fantastic to work with! She was very helpful, but not overbearing! They welcomed you to take tons of pictures while you were trying things on, which many bridal shops don't allow photography. And even when I had a big problem when my dress came in, they called the designer, and sent it back, no problem. They were great, and not too pricey either!

Katie and the rest of the staff at Wedding Bell were a pleasure to work with. Both my mother and I purchased our dresses (wedding gown & mother of the bride) there and we were very happy with both the dresses and the service. Hilda, the seamstress, was also very nice and helpful - and did everything I asked (even if she knew the dress would not be comfortable to wear). In the end, the dress was perfect and everything I could have asked for. Thanks to Katie for her help in picking out the right colors for mom's dress and thanks to Hilda for allowing me to be a 'bride'.

Dress was amazing, and a great price. But the alterations lady they recommended was overbooked and I didn't feel she did as good a job that she could. Plus she messed up an appointment that I drove from grand rapids for.

I chose this place because my sister in law worked there and could get me a good deal. I actually at the time was living out of state and was going to buy my dress there because I found my $1100 dress for $700!!! Well I was able to work with the owner at The Wedding Bell and she price matched the dress! Talk about awesome. So that eliminated the hassle of dragging my dress across 8 states! YAY...They also have a seamstress who tailors the dress and she was much cheaper than anyone else and did a great job at that! I also decided at the last minute to get a vail which needed some bead work done to it and she did it for only $10!! The Wedding Bell was very good to me and made my wedding day much less stressful and my gown was absolutely perfect :)

Lovely selection of dresses and very friendly service. The only problem we ran into was a miscommunication regarding the ordering of a MOB dress which then caused a tight turn-around window in terms of alterations. However, The Wedding Bell was very apologetic/accommodating with respect to the issue.

I couldn't have been more pleased with my dress and the cost, however, every time they promised me something, they failed to deliver. It took almost 8 months to get my dress in, when they told me it would be about 3 to 4. It took about 2 months for my jewelry to get in, when I was told 2 weeks. I was also told that they would do my alterations when I bought my dress, only to find out that they were going to charge me $300 to shorten it and the lady who does the alterations was a complete witch.

It's an affordable place, just don't expect great customer service.
