The Wedding Bell has been in business for over 69 years and is located at 2609 6th Avenue in Tacoma. The store has an interesting history. Mrs. Fontana was the original owner of The Wedding Bell, and she owned it for 47 years before she passed away. She kept newspaper clippings and photographs from every single bride during that time. Ask to see the albums when you visit. They are a unique insight into the history of Tacoma. It is our understanding that Mrs. Fontana even attended the weddings of all her brides and helped them get dressed. We routinely have Wedding Bell brides from 40, 50, even 60 years ago drop by with their daughters and grand-daughters. The Wedding Bell has changed ownership three times since then and is currently owned by Kim Miller. We deliver the individualized attention every bride deserves... So, come experience the difference of a full-service bridal boutique.

An appointment is strongly recommended. Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays are very busy in the salon, so we suggest making an appointment to guarantee that a consultant will be available to help you. If you're not quite sure of your schedule, give us a call to see if we have time for a walk-in appointment. We want to make your entire wedding experience as easy as saying "I do!" Come see for yourself how The Wedding Bell is different from other bridal salons! Read less

I absolutely love Aimee and Kim. This store is fantastic and I got the bridal experience I was looking for. I found my dress on my first appointment and bought my whole look the same day. Aimee helped me find the perfect accessories with a smile on her face. I love this boutique so much that I made an appointment for my bridesmaids and plan on getting the Mom's looks her as well. I love The Wedding Bell and am so thankful that they are in Tacoma and so close to my home. To top things off my mother bought her dress here as well so there was a special feeling of nostalgia for her.

I went to my appoint on 5/10/14 with hesitation as it was my 5th time trying on dresses and I had yet to find something that I loved. There are only so many options for tea-length wedding gowns. It was my first time to the Wedding Bell and I was very impressed. My consultant Ashley was fantastic! She is very knowledgeable and really took the time to understand what I was looking for. She was very honest and real which made my experience stress free. I was able to leave my appoint happy after finding a dress I love.

I had an amazing experience at the Wedding Bell today. I worked with Ashley of whom I would highly recommend to anyone. Ashley is extremely knowledgeable and has been working in bridal for approximately 17 years. She is very authentic and real which are two characteristics that are important to me. Ashley was attentive to my needs and made the entire experience stress free and fun.

My experience at the Wedding Bell was wonderful! I was able to find an amazing dress and it was altered in house to fit perfect! The staff is friendly, professional, and easy to work with. They even give you a little bag with a snack, water, and a few other goodies for the day of the wedding.

They were even so helpful helping my brideswomen find dresses.

I LOVE The Wedding Bell. Seriously, the best customer service around.

Purchased my dress and accessories on the first visit. Loved my dress so much I got bridesmaid dresses (Thank you Haley for finding that amazing dress for my friends!) and I also go my mom's dress there, and the groom + groomsmen tuxes. (Really, thanks Haley for it all!)

My dress came in faster than expected, and it fit just beautifully. The alterations department is AMAZING. Fits it right to you...and notices little things about how the dress fits that another alterations dept. might not. These little fixes make all the difference on how the dress looks and fits.

When I had many (and I do mean many) questions about the dresses/ tuxes, everyone was very knowledgeable. If they did not know, they found out for me.

I did have a slight freak-out moment when the tuxes came on Wednesday before the wedding. I was afraid they wouldn't fit anyway, and I was right. We had a crisis because all except one tux came in on time, and we had to wait until Thursday to finally get them all tried on. Kim, the owner, knew I was freaking out about the fit, and wasn't sure the re-ordered tuxes would get there on time. She gladly stayed until midnight the night of my rehearsal dinner (Thursday!) for my groom and his groomsmen to all get fitted and order the correct size...which arrived on Friday..the day before the wedding. The second order of tuxes fit really well. THANK YOU KIM for going above and beyond!!

This place is awesome. I would totally go there again if I were choosing my dress again.

On Saturday, March 15th, 2014 I had my very first appointment to try on wedding dresses. I made my appointment with "The Wedding Bell," because I was driving by on 6th ave, in Tacoma and the beautiful dresses caught my eye. After I drove by I decided to check out their website and fell in love with a dress. So, I called and scheduled an appointment. The sad news was that the dress I found online was not in stock for me to try on and would take 4 months to get. They told me that they would have similar dresses for me to try on and if I still wanted the dress that was not in stock they would order it for me. My appointment was with Ashley the manager of the store. After I scheduled they sent me an email in regards to my appointment of all the things I must know for my appointment. I found that really helpful! When I arrived to my to my surprise Ashley had ordered that dress for me that was not in stock. I was so excited that I was actually going to be trying that dress on. When I tried it on I wasn't so in love with it as I was when I seen it online. However, I did end up falling in love with a different dress. I feel that Ashley went far and beyond all my expectations. I loved how she really listened to what I wanted. She gave me her input and also recommended I try on dresses I hadn't even thought about trying on. She really cared and made my wedding dress experience a dream come true! I'm so pleased with my experience here I will tell all my friends, family, and patients. -Amber

The Wedding Bell had a broad selection of really lovely gowns, including gorgeous plus/special sizes, at super reasonable prices. At the time I was hunting, I don’t think they really went higher than about $1400-$1500 as listed (keep in mind you’ll have other expenses though, taxes, alterations, accessories, etc.!) It’s also a beautiful salon environment – so much nicer, and more flattering lighting-wise, than some of the bigger chain bridal shops I also visited in my dress hunting! But it doesn’t feel stuffy or too ritzy. You’ll still feel comfortable and beautiful there!

We bought my bridal gown (and later, accessories) from the Wedding Bell. Originally we worked with Siri, who was a wonderful consultant who has since left. However, I would never have found my perfect dress without her guidance and knowledge! She helped me find the best shape for my body, a dress I did not expect. I went in looking for a satin a-line; I left with a lace and tulle, natural-waist ball gown, and I could not be happier. It was gorgeous. I didn’t think I would really get the ‘I feel like a bride’ feeling, but I did in this dress – it really took me by surprise!

Post-purchase, I worked with the owner, Kim, over phone and e-mail as we solidified some decisions for additional items. She was super proactive and let me know that instead of waiting to add a corset back to my dress in alterations, we could have the dress manufacturer change it on their end! We also worked out ordered some additional materials so that we could add off-the-shoulder sleeves to my gown in alterations. We ended up going back a couple different times to find the perfect veil, headpiece and jewelry, and the girls I worked with at the shop (I want to say Shelly and Amanda) were both wonderful as well! I also had a great experience with their alterations folks over at Wedding Bell Tres Chic, but I’ll save more gushing for them for a separate review.

All in all, I highly recommend the Wedding Bell!

I had visited the WB twice while dress-shopping. I had a dress in-mind and I was hoping that WB could offer a lower price if I purchased the floor model. Due to contracts with the designer they could not but what they did do for me is offer a few different styles. On my second trip I just went in during the gown sale and found a few I thought I would love. The last dress was "my dress". The shop owner was actually in town and helped me during my 2nd visit. She is very thorough and helpful. I was able to "store" my dress at the shop until I had time to get in with a seamstress. Wonderful experience, service, and staff.

I absolutely cannot state how good of an experience I had here. The staff was amazing and did everything they could to get me the gown I wanted. Truly amazing. I tried on dresses here and at David's Bridal, and while David's bridal has a lot of cheaper gowns, The Wedding Bell is absolutely worth it for the customer service.

The Wedding Bell was the first shop I went to when looking for my dress. I had never tried on wedding dresses and was honestly a little nervous (had no idea what I was looking for!) The girls at the Wedding Bell were excellent! They made me feel very comfortable. I gave them a few ideas of dresses I liked and after trying on only about 4 or 5 dresses, I found the one! Overall my experience at the Wedding Bell was great! From the sales staff to the alteration staff, it was all perfect! I would highly recommend this shop as a must stop for wedding dress shopping!

I went here twice to try on dresses. Once before I knew I was pregnant, then after finding out I was pregnant. I waited till I was further along and went back. I tried on dresses at other places and everyone kept telling me to buy a bridesmaids dress.... NOT what I wanted. After emailing The Wedding Bell and explaining my situation, the lady I had tried dresses on with 6 months earlier called me quickly. She got me in to try on a couple dresses that would work at 8 months pregnant. She remembered me from before and pulled the best dress I could have asked for. It was perfect. I can't wait for my big day to show off this beautiful dress.

The Wedding Bell was the third dress store I had visited. I had already tried on 4-5 dresses at other places and was already dreading going again. I knew what I wanted but wasn't finding anything and started to feel discouraged.

My appointment was today, and I have to say I am so happy. My consultant, Shawna did an outstanding job. She listened to ALL the thing I was looking for in a dress. I told her I was worried because I am so picky. Never once was she pushy or persistent.

She was beyond thoughtful when pulling dresses for me, and chose dresses very similar to some of the pictures I had shown her. She clearly was doing a fantastic job, as other consultants kept peeking in our room to borrow dresses she had pulled! Shawna mentioned she had only been there for around 2 months, but you'd never be able to tell..... She seemed to have so much knowledge- and I'm blown away at how amazing my experience was. I had to tell her that I wasn't excited about dress shopping and was dreading the appointment before I got there.

I also appreciate how in contact the owner, Kim is with we store. I was able to make an appointment via email in less than an hour the same day!

Absolutely LOVE the wedding bell & can't wait to see my dress after alterations! I would most definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a special occasion outfit :).

The Wedding Bell was the third dress store I had visited. I had already tried on 4-5 dresses at other places and was already dreading going again. I knew what I wanted but wasn't finding anything and started to feel discouraged.

My appointment was today, and I have to say I am so happy. My consultant, Shawna did an outstanding job. She listened to ALL the thing I was looking for in a dress. I told her I was worried because I am so picky. Never once was she pushy or persistent.

She was beyond thoughtful when pulling dresses for me, and chose dresses very similar to some of the pictures I had shown her. She clearly was doing a fantastic job, as other consultants kept peeking in our room to borrow dresses she had pulled! Shawna mentioned she had only been there for around 2 months, but you'd never be able to tell..... She seemed to have so much knowledge- and I'm blown away at how amazing my experience was. I had to tell her that I wasn't excited about dress shopping and was dreading the appointment before I got there.

The Wedding Bell is a lovely boutique with friendly, helpful, and professional staff. The shop is beautiful, and they make it so pretty and comfortable to try on the dresses. They have a beautiful selection, and Shauna was great at choosing dresses I might like. I did not end up getting my dress there, but absolutely loved the shop and did get my alterations done at their store "Tres Chic." Beth, who did the alterations, customized the dress in ways I never knew were possible. She was attentive, helpful, and very professional. It was a joy working with both The Wedding Bell, and Tres Chic!

My daughter's wedding dress was simply the most beautiful dress.
The wedding bell consultant, Shelly Adams, helped us to choose this perfect dress and was so helpful!

The wedding had many dresses to choose from but Shelley found the perfect dress by listening to my daughter. She truly made our visit there special.
The alterations staff was fantastic also. They were so very nice and helpful.
Highly recommend this vendor.

One of the best decisions I made throughout my wedding planning process was to walk into The Wedding Bell one day on my lunch break...just to take a peak at some dresses. I immediately fell in love with the quaint boutique setting, attentive and fun staff (mostly family of the owner, Beth) and the beautiful, yet affordable gowns. We ended up purchasing my bridal gown, the bridesmaid dresses, flower girl dress and my Mom's dress through them.

We hit some bumps along the way...the bridesmaids dresses I picked had been just been discontinued in the color I wanted, so we had to start from square one finding another dress I liked for my girls. Not a problem though, they took their time working with me to find exactly what I was looking for! Then, my mom waited until the LAST minute to order her dress and it came one week before the wedding...none of us liked it...so, we found another and got it in 2 days before the wedding! It needed several alterations and Beth put in extra hours just to see that it was done on time and done well! Throughout all of that chaos with both situations, Beth and her crew managed to smile and offer their time and devotion to making us happy customers. I truly feel that had I chosen to do business elsewhere, I never would have received the support and quality of service I received at the Wedding Bell. I never doubted their willingness to go above and beyond to provide excellent customer service. I have to say, my time spent at The Wedding Bell was fun, stress-free and very memorable! I highly recommend them to any brides I come accross.

Do not go anywhere else for a wedding dress! All of their dresses are beautiful. I went to David's bridal first and that was a huge mistake! They ask you a little about what you want in a dress and then pick out a few for you based on that and your budget. That way you don't have the stress of going through hundreds of dresses. They also have the perfect layaway program that you can't turn down. I didn't think I could afford the dress but luckily was able to pay it in just a few $150 payments! And the cute pink bag is worth the cost of the dress! :)

I received a communication via another wedding website regarding The Wedding Bell's $99 wedding dress clearance sale about 9 months prior to our wedding. The 'event' was first-come, first-serve so I grab a few girlfriends and decided to go see what they had to offer. The shop wasn't overly crowded, the staff was wonderful and attentive and I never felt overwhelmed or pressured. Luckily, I found my dress at an EXTREMELY discounted rate and purchased it that day.

I loved my dress, I loved how much help they were to me fitting me. There was no pressure I felt like Cinderella.
I did check out a couple of other places who made me feel uncomfortable and rushed. Appointments were easy and they have lots to choose from.
I wasn't sure at all what style would suit me as I really do not wear dresses much but they made me look like a celebrity bride. Thank you

I purchased my wedding dress from The Wedding Bell and I'm so glad I went to them. The staff is friendly and very helpful. I bought their floor model dress and because it was a Sottero and Midgely dress, I couldn't get a discount on purchasing the floor model. Instead, they gave me a $200 accessory credit so I was able to get my veil for free! I had to order my veil and the staff were always very responsive when I called regarding the status of my order. They have a wide variety of dresses and I spent almost 2 hours with them looking for the right dress and never felt pressured to buy anything I wasn't in love with. Love this place!!

Ive never had a better experience than this bridal store.
The owner Kim goes above and beyond.
When I first was thinking about looking for dresses I came into the store, however I wasnt looking forward to trying on dresses since I had just had my baby. Kim, the owner offered to come in when the store was closed and provide me with a private experience. That was only the first wonderful thing she did.
Second, she ask for pictures of my dream dress. When I arrived, she had chosen 10+ dresses that fit that bill. I loved them all and chose my dress that day.
Third, she offered to send them to me in California when they arrived. I just recently moved from WA to CA.
Fourth, she helped me find the best bridesmaid dresses ever! The perfect color and fabric and spent countless hours coordinating everything for myself and my wedding party.
Since my selection of dresses she had been in contact with me often to check in on me.She is so quick with email and always available to answer questions.
Never mind that she lives in another state, she has STELLAR COMMUNICATION.

I WOULD RECCOMEND THIS PLACE IN A HEARTBEAT!!!

I couldn't have found a better place to get my wedding dress than The Wedding Bell. I tried on probably 30 dresses before ever going there and felt pretty lukewarm about all of them. The consultants at The Wedding Bell were really helpful and forced me to try some dresses on that I wouldn't have necessarily chosen for myself. One of those dresses ended up being "the dress." There was a bit of a snag after the dress came in because the consultant that I had worked with didn't measure me and recommended the wrong size. She had since been let go for that reason but the staff was very understanding and they comped the alterations needed to take the dress out a bit which I thought was very nice of them.
Due to some family health problems, we had to move the wedding up by a year and The Wedding Bell staff were also sweet enough to wave the rush fee because of the circumstances.
The dress looked amazing and nothing like I had seen online. They have a lot more unique designs and are very good about only grabbing dresses within the budget. If you haven't found a dress that really suits your fancy, try The Wedding Bell. You'll be hard pressed to leave empty handed.

As a plus size bride, I was very worried about my wedding dress shopping experience. I was afraid that a time that was supposed to be magical and fun-filled was going to be disappointing and embarrassing as I might not be able to try on the dresses I wanted. So after doing a lot of research, I decided to make my first stop the Wedding Bell in Tacoma, and I am so glad I did!

Their staff made me feel at ease right away, and I had a huge selection from my favorite designers to choose from and try on. More than that, the owner, Kim, was amazing and contacted the designer directly for me to make sure I could get the custom changes to the dress that I wanted in time for my wedding and in my budget! I couldn't be happier with my entire experience, I felt gorgeous in my gown and I felt like I got to have a wonderful bridal experience with The Wedding Bell. THANK YOU!

I went The Wedding Bell after trying on 35+ gowns but never feeling like a bride. I worked with Ashley, who was wonderful and spent a good amount of time asking me about my wedding, what I like, don't like and made my Mom feel comfortable as well. Ashley found a variety of gowns and showed me how to make them my own with beading and bling. She found a beautiful Aire Barcelona gown for me that was beautiful but needed a little special something. She then showed me a georgous Essence of Australia belt that could be sewn into it AND a cool vintage-inspired head-peice in lieu of a veil. The look altogether was perfect!

We also got the bridesmaid dresses there and Ashley helped me choose some options that would compliment all figures so my girls could all choose a different dress. Jessie coordinated with all the girls who were scattered across the state, in Indiana, and Canada! Anytime we had a question or needed some advice, Ashley or Jessie would immediately respond. My gown and the girls dresses even came in early! Everything fit well and the girls were very happy with their selections :)

I would recommend The Wedding Bell to anyone. The ladies are fantastic, the shop is cute, and the selection great!

I went to this store as a recommendation from my sister in law to shop for bridesmaid dresses. This is where she bought hers. My only complaint is the dresses that I wanted to see from the website many of them were not sold at the store anymore, which really bummed me out. I ended up buying better one's for my ladies that I could never imagine finding, but if you have something on your website you should have it in the store. My salesperson, Jessica, was AMAZING! So helpful. My only other concern is the fact they do not do in house seamstressing. My ladies had to go find their own tailors and some got theirs fixed and some didn't depending on their budget. That was the only thing that frustrated me, but it worked out since my ladies were all over the state they didn't have to drive over :) This place has a HUGE selection of dresses at all price points so I do recommend this.

That was the only thing that frustrated me, but it worked out since my ladies were all over the state they didn't have to drive over :) This place has a HUGE selection of dresses at all price points so I do recommend this.

All the staff at the Wedding bell are extremely nice and very helpful. The atmosphere at the Wedding bell is classy yet relaxed. It was such a breath of fresh air after having a terrible experience at Weddings With Joy in Lacey, where the staff was pushy and generally unfriendly. Ashley Taylor was fabulous, not only while purchasing my dress, but after as well. She helped us problem solve to find the right ivory colored shirts for the groomsmen (which was a nightmare b/c so many are yellow not cream ivory) and even let me bounce ideas off of her about our wedding decor and what type of bridal wrap I should wear! It was so nice to know I had someone who would help me without hesitation. I would definitely recommend this bridal boutique to any bride to be!!

I had the best experience at the Wedding Bell. I told them how much I wanted to spend and what I wanted my dress to look like. I picked out a few and they picked out a few. I tried on three dresses and loved every single one of them. Two of the ones I loved were ones that the girls picked out for me. Looking at pictures makes me love my dress even more!!! It was beautiful and a pretty good price.

This review is a bit overdue. I ended up buying my dress off the sales floor and ordering a veil in November of 2009, my wedding was August 2010. Prior to arriving, I didn't know they were also having a sale. Bonus! I got a discount on accessories too!

They do not have in-house alterations, but they recommended Beth Parks to me. I second this recommendation! Beth works magic with dresses.

I had already been to 2 other bridal shops, and lets just say I couldn't get out of those stores fast enough. The Wedding Bell was far beyond my expectations. A friend actually recommended the place, she didn't end up finding her dress there but had great things to say about it.

I believe my appointment was set to be with Jessie, both she and Ashley (Manager) ended up helping me. They pretty much picked the dresses for me to try on because I had no clue what I wanted anymore. I surrendered to their expertise and I'm glad I did. I went through the aisles with my mom and maid of honor and said "no" to every suggestion and I doubted that I'd look good in the dresses I actually liked. The dress I ended up with was the one I really loved on the hanger, but doubted I could pull off. Everyone else knew when I walked out of the dressing room that it was "the one." I was afraid to finally pick a dress, but I was so happy with my choice. The ladies were so sweet, helpful and patient! I had a great experience here and it was well worth the 30 mile drive it took to get me there!

Unfortunately I didn't purchase my wedding dress with The Wedding Bell, but I wish I had! When I went there to look for bridesmaid dresses they were very helpful - I wanted silver dresses and did not want them to look grey. My consultant, Jessie, was able to point me to a fabric that would do exactly what I wanted. She was also very confident that I would love a style that, to be honest, looked not-so-great on the hanger... but it was amazing on my girls! I guess she knows her dresses :) The whole ordering process was very easy -- be aware though, dresses here (as with anywhere else of the same quality) take a while to come in after you order them, so be proactive and get on the bridesmaid dress hunt sooner rather than later! Overall I had an amazing experience at The Wedding Bell and I would definitely (and already have) recommend looking for dresses - wedding, bridesmaids, or even prom - here as there service was great!

The Wedding Bell was the first place that I went to try on dresses after I got engaged. I tried on quite a few dresses and there was one in particular that stood out above all the rest. I fell in love with it and really liked how it felt and looked on me. I decided to shop around and see what else was available at other stores. After going to four other stores I knew that nothing else compared to what I had found at the Wedding Bell. It is definitely the perfect little shop to find your perfect wedding gown for your perfect day!

I went to Demetrios Bridal, David's Bridal, and The Wedding Bell in search of my perfect wedding gown, and I can say hands down that The Wedding Bell blew the other two completely out of the water. Not only were most od the dresses extremely reasonable in price (and you're getting high quality pieces for your money), but the staff were so patient as I tried literally every gown in the store on, and were just as excited as I was when I found "the one." They made me feel beautiful even though I did not fit in hardly any of their sample sizes, and helped me to not feel insecure trying things on! They were very prompt in informing me when the dress came in, and I got a fantastic deal on it! (Go after the bridal expo, they have great coupons) The woman who owns the shop and does the alterations, Beth, is a little bit pricey (my alterations were more than my gown, but I lost a significant amount of weight, so that was kind of expected) but she does absolutely GORGEOUS work. She took my dress down nearly two sizes and you never would have been able to tell! She cares tremendously about how you look when you walk down the aisle, and has no problems doing multiple fittings and alterations to ensure that everything looks perfect on your big day. It was worth absolutely every penny to have her taking care of everything. Yes, you do have to go to her house to pick up your dress, but only if it's during the peak of wedding season. She cares so much about doing a good job on the alterations that she does them full time at her house during June. To top it all off, when I came back from honeymoon, I received a thank you card from them. Now that's what I call great service!

Each member of the staff at The Wedding Bell deserves a pat on the back and a round of applause for making my dress literally fit like a glove all night and getting it ready in time! We ordered in July and it arrived a month before the wedding needing it taken in at the bust and when I picked it up a week before the wedding I had a hard time getting myself out! Beth, the seamstress, also picked out a gorgeous dress for my mom a WEEK before the wedding which she got sooo many raves and reviews about!! I got my whole attire - shoes, veil, hair comb/tiara, dress at the shop and this was the ONLY shop I went to!! If you're looking for a unique, one of a kind, special dress this is the place to go... they make you feel like a princess!

I loved coming to The Wedding Bell for my wedding dress. The atmosphere was inviting. The lady who helped me was so sweet. I loved working with her, she took any nerves I had about trying to find a dress away. She was very good at listening to what I wanted in a dress. This was the first place I went looking for a dress and I chose mine that same day. It was only $300 but it was very nice quality and fit my wedding perfectly. They seem to have a large selection. I would recommend this to any bride in the area searching for a dress!

This is a store I probably would never have entered if not for the recommendations of friends (they always have the goofiest window displays), but I'm so glad I did. From my first shopping trip to my final (and second final!) fitting, everyone I worked with was friendly, helpful and gracious. They were very respectful of my budget - I told them I wanted to keep it under $2,000, and I think the most expensive dress they showed me was $1,500. They were also wonderful after what was supposed to be my final fitting, when we discovered that I'd accidentally dropped a dress size during the stress of wedding planning. We had only a week until my wedding, but they pulled out all the stops to take the dress in even more, and did not charge me for the second set of alterations. Fantastic service. A+!

I enjoyed my experience with the Wedding Bell. My consultant was very nice and asked me privately what my budget was then only brought out dresses that worked within my budget. I really appreciated that. My consultant (I wish I could remember her name right now!) was very sweet and helpful. I found a dress that I loved but she did not pressure me to purchase it right then. I wanted to think on it because the Wedding Bell was the first place I had gone to try on dresses and I since I had my bridal party and mother with me I was feeling overwhelmed and didn't want to make a rash decision. Turns out that dress was the only one I could think about and after returning a week or two later I made the decision to buy it. The price was reasonable however I would probably use a different tailor than The
Wedding Bell Tres Chic down the street in the future only due to price; the 8 points on my bustle and a couple of other adjustments that were pretty minor ended up costing me over $500.00 and my bustle pulled out halfway through the reception.

As an out of state bride I had only one day to search for a dress with my mother and sister. I wanted to find “the dress” but I also wanted to have a good time doing it. I chose Wedding Bell Bride because of all the great reviews I read online, but I admit it, I still wondered if I would eventually have to go to an expensive salon in Seattle to get the shopping experience I wanted. Well, the reviews were right. The customer service at this shop surpassed my expectations. The experience was great and the consultants know their stuff. They quickly led us in the right direction, were very patient and found me a dress that made me feel more like a bride than I thought I could at 40. The dress is everything I could want, the price was very reasonable; they covered everything I needed to complete the outfit and made the entire experience a pleasure. This shop is a true gem!

Excellent dresses to choose from. Very helpful and responsive to your dress preferences. Knowledgable about various dresses, styles and their own inventory. Great variety of dresses to try, all sizes and price ranges. They also do alterations which was also a wonderful experience. I'm currently waiting to get my dress back from being cleaned and preserved which was at what I believe to be a very reasonable price. I chose the wedding bell for my dress cleaning as they know my dress and would not send it to someone they don't trust or approve of the quality. I do not trust anyone else with my dress!

I had two appointments with Hillary at the Wedding Bell to pick out my dress. The first time, I had my mom, grandma and sister with me, and while I had a great time, I simply couldn't nail down exactly what I was looking for. Shortly after that visit, I sent the owner an email and asked if it would be okay to look through the stock room myself, and soon I was in my second appointment with Hillary, rummaging through their stock with my own two hands. I was comparing two dresses, and all of a sudden Hillary said she had the perfect combination of the two, and came back with what turned out to be THE dress! Everyone at my wedding kept asking where I got my dress.

The ladies here are sweet and helpful, and help make the finding-the-dress process less daunting, even for us indecisive brides.

Beth, the former owner, did my alterations and they were perfect! Hands down, I'd choose these ladies all over again.

They sat me and my mom and friend down and asked what I wanted. They listened and brought me dresses that were exactly what I was looking for. When trying them on, she was professional and helpful. She even let me borrow jewelry and a veil to see how it would look on the big day. All in all, 5/5.

Alterations, however, I give a 4.5. This time of year, they are so slammed. I think the pressure makes them rush through things. My seamstress was one of the nicest people ever, but I never felt like I was really appreciated. My last fitting they brought me in 20 minutes late and then rushed through my appointment. I tried it on, and there were some last minute changes to be done, so I took it off and waited as they did it right there. She told me I wouldn't need to try it on again, because everything would fit perfectly. When I put it on for the wedding, the straps had been lengthened instead of shortened, so we had to do quick safety pinning. My bustle also kept falling down all night. All worked out no sweat, no tears involved, but it was somewhat annoying having to keep fixing my dress every half hour or so. Other than that, beautiful gowns, awesome service, and very nice people!

I LOVED my dress shop! These ladies were fantastic in helping me find "the dress" and making sure it was made exactly how I wanted it. I was a little worried at first because when I had made my first appointment someone there didn't write me down on the schedule, but when I showed up (to their surprise) they quickly made me and my entourage feel welcome and helped me into as many dresses as we could manage in the time we had before the next appointment. I wouldn't recommend anywhere else to get your dress! And their seamstress was amazing! A+++++

The entire staff was very helpful and made my wedding dress experience amazing. The consultant (Jesse) who helped my pick out my dress took the time to find out what type of wedding I was having and use that information to help me chose the best dress for my wedding. I have already recommended this shop to other friends, becuase of the great experience that I had here.

Overall, my experience at the wedding bell was great! When I first went to try on bridal gowns, the staff members were so helpful and flexible in helping me find just the right dress. The staff members were really nice and created a fun experience for me and my family members. While all the consultants I worked with were great, it seems there has been a lot of turn over in the staff members, because I was paired with a different consultant almost every time I had an appointment. I love that The Wedding Bell is a local store and the quality of the dresses is outstanding! They usually have great promotions to offer and I was able to purchase an accessory package that allowed me to save a lot of money on my shoes, jewelry, veil, and gave my bridesmaids a great discount on their dresses.

The Wedding Bell was the first boutique I visited in my dress shopping. The staff I worked with listened to what I was looking for and looked at a couple of images I had of dresses I liked. She was incredibly professional and attentive and selected dresses fitting my criteria. Each was beautiful and I loved one that was perfect for our elegant day time wedding. The Wedding Bell is not a budget vendor and the dress was slightly out of my desired price range so I still visited other stores. I found nothing that could beat the quality and beauty of the dress at the Wedding Bell and staff elsewhere were not as able of helping me select simple, elegant dresses. After talking to staff about the price, they said they could not negotiate the price of the sample dress any lower but instead gave me a credit toward accessories. I was able to find the perfect jewelry to go with the dress. It was a great experience and I would shop there again.

I bought a sample dress and loved the dress so much! They did not rush me during the decision time, and let me jump back and forth between dresses. They were very sweet. The only thing I did not like was the alteration lady. Although she was nice, I did not think she was professional. She poked herself with a needle while pinning me, and instead of putting a bandage right away, she just kept going and bled ON the dress!! How annoying.

The alteration is at their sister store, but the Wedding Bell is very professional, very kind, and have great selection of dresses.

I drove up from Portland to Tacoma in search for a dress I had found at a boutique in Portland. I wanted a cheaper version of the dress. They did have it, and it was cheaper, but we figured that with driving back and fourth it would end up being about the same amount. So I tired on different dresses to see what I could find. I ended up finding a similar one for way cheaper. Danielle the lady that helped me was awesome. She didn't seem in a hurry, and just wanted to get me into a dress that I loved! They had a great deal going that if we paid for the dress in full right then that I would get 50 bucks off my veil and a free rehersal dinner dress for up to $200! So we did that! They told me that my dress was going to be available for pick up at the end of November. I was pleasantly suprised when I got an email from the owner that my dress was available at the end of October!
When I picked it up, it didn't quite fit me right it was too small, so I had to take it in to get it altered which was fine, but overall it was a pretty good experience.

Be aware they do have special deals that apply only to the first day you are there, so do not go to this store first. Their deals were really good on some of the dresses, but the decision had to be made by the end of that business day.
The women were very helpful and professional, doing a better job with getting gowns on and clipped than anyone else. Plus, they listened to me and responded with appropriate changes in type of gown to try on.

I found the dress of my dreams at the Wedding Bell...and it was the first one I tried on! I wish I could remember the name of my consultant...she was awesome! I think it's Danielle, because that was the employee name on my receipt. Go Danielle! She must be magic...she pulled my dream dress before I even found it!

The one gripe I have about the Wedding Bell is that the rest of the staff and especially the manager never seem to be very friendly when I walk in. I can't explain it, but the vibe I get when I walk in is that I'm taking up their time, which is unfortunate. I would give Danielle all 5's, and the rest of the staff 3's, so I averaged it out.

I purchased my gown from The Wedding Bell. They have great selection for incredible prices. I think I would have rated them 5 stars across the board if their seamstress (Beth, who is amazing) hadn't left the shop to do alterations from her home exclusively. This wouldn't have been an issue, but I had my first fitting in the shop and then when I was trying to schedule my 2nd and last fitting, it was like pulling teeth to get anyone to call me back or tell me where my dress was. I finally got a hold of Beth who finished up my fittings from her home. She is amazing. If you need alterations done, you should look her up. My dress fit like a glove.

The wedding bell had beautiful wedding gowns that were very original and nicely priced. The only thing I was not happy with was the woman they use to do their alterations. She was pushy and pricey. I felt like I had to use her since she helped me into my dress at the store and told me everything she needed to do to my dress. Before you know it the cost for cutting down the cups on my corset so they wouldn't show out of the dress and to shorten my straps was almost $300.00 alone and this was on top of the $1,200 dress (that I am completely happy with). She also proceeded to remind me as I was looking at her paperwork that she was doing it for such a good price! As if! Then she took almost three weeks to do minimal alterations and finished 3 days before the wedding. So I had to work around HER schedule to come to HER house to get MY dress that I already paid for. It was very irritating and stressful. The rest of the staff at the wedding bell was wonderful though. I recommend their shop, just not their lady who does alterations. Look elsewhere :)

My Brides maid dresses and jewelry were purchased at the Wedding Bell. The service at the initial visit was great. When the promised date came I called to see if the dresses were in and I sort got the run around on the estimated date of arrival. Finally the dresses did arrive just in time for alterations to be done on them but I was told that the jewelry had been discontinued that I had ordered more than ten weeks prior. I spoke to the manger and she did make the situation right in the end I just wish that they had better communication from the start. I had purchased a gown for a formal charity event and had no problems.

They helped find the perfect dress and it fit reasonably well in our budget. When we went to pick everything up, my veil was damaged and they provided the wrong back piece for the corset portion of the dress. While they were able to quickly replace the veil at no charge, they never did find the right back panel and we just had to make something else work. No one could really notice, but for the price it was still a little disappointing.

While I was deciding on a dress all of the sales associates were very kind and helpful. The dress was beautiful and exactly what I was looking for. They were very professional and got my dress to me on time! However, the alterations were not done when we had originally planned, and after the wedding was over they did try to collect more money from us that we did now owe. Other than the money issue, they were very nice and easy to work with.

The Wedding Bell does not do in-house alterations, therefore, we can't be held responsible for alterations not being completed on time. She will need to take this up with the seamstress. Unfortunately, there was fabric and lace that was not paid for. It was our mistake for releasing it to this client without payment.

My first visit to The Wedding Bell was absolutely amazing! My mom and I had been shopping all day and when we got to The Wedding Bell they were just about to close but the owner was extremely nice and let us come in to look. I found my perfect dress in the back and found out it was on sale! It was completely meant to be and the owner made our experience memorable. The second, third, and fourth time we came in we were helped by a younger girl and she was very rude and not helpful. She acted as though even the fact that we were there was annoying her. When we came to pick up the wedding dress, veil, and bridesmaid dresses she claimed that we had not paid for the veil and that we could not leave the store without repaying. We were in a time crunch to get to the fitting so we paid a second time for the veil. Luckily, we called and talked with the owner and she straightened everything out and gave us a refund on the veil which when charged a second time was not even the correct price. I would recommend The Wedding Bell only if the owner is there.

I would recommend The Wedding Bell only if the owner is there. Read less

My employee made a mistake, and I know she did not mean to come across as rude. The mistake was quickly corrected, and I called to apologize right away. Again, I apologize for the error.

On the initial appointment we were a few minutes early (maybe 5-10) and they seated us and then ignored us for half an hour because the previous appointment was running behind. My consultant got there and when i told her what I was looking for, she pulled some things that were what I told her I DID NOT want: ballgowns and a crinoline..I said nothing poofy. My Maid of Honor pulled a dress that was near PERFECT, and then the consultant got it and pulled the gown I ultimately bought. If I had not been in love with the dress, I would not have bought there. Also...No one ever measured me, and I'm not a gal who can wear things off the rack.
Then on my first fitting I was a little shocked when I got an initial estimate of over $600 to do the needed alterations. (it had to be taken in and the sample had fit better.) Then the next fitting the Seamstress (who did a really good job on the alterations!!)informed me that they would be adding another $300! I was very angry, brought up that I hadn't been measures, had tried to keep my weight steady. we went to the main store and told the lady at the desk what had happened. Within an hour I had an e-mail from the owner who ultimately brought the alterations back to the initial estimate cost, and was very responsive, so Kudos to Kim for being a wonderful, responsible, reasonable shop owner!

I did not purchase any clothing from The Wedding Bell, but I got a few wedding accessories from them. They had a nice selection of accessories (flower girl baskets, bridesmaids gifts, etc.) that I was unable to find anywhere else. However, the service was not always top-notch and I found some of their things to be overpriced. Overall, though, the uniqueness of their inventory made it worth the stop.

During my first visit, Ashley was super helpful in narrowing the choices for a wedding dress keeping in mind my preferences and body shape. She was also great about respecting my dress budget although I did choose to spend more than my budget in the end. I tried on a sample size 12 which was too big but perfect in length. Ashley recommended that I order a size 10 which would fit closer to my size thus requiring fewer alterations.

Fast forward to the date my dress came in. I went to try it on and the girl could barely zip it up. Apparently a size 10 was too small and because it was too small it sat high on my body making it about 3 inches too short. With 4.5 months to the wedding it was too late to re-order a size 12 (and I was NOT going to pay the additional restocking and rush fee PLUS alterations). With no other option than buying another dress, I took the dress home with the thought that losing weight and some alterations would help. With no additional budget for alterations, this was super frustrating.

After discussing with Ashley that I was unhappy with the dress, she recommended that I take it to one of their preferred seamstresses. I was hoping that the store would recognize that they measured me wrong, ordered the wrong size or something, but no. I was on my own to figure out how to make the dress work.

I got my butt into shape, lost a few pounds and $300 in alterations later, the dress fit. I had the seamstress take measurements and compare them to my initial measurements at the store. Long story short, the Wedding Belle measured me incorrectly and should have recommended I order the size 12. This would have resulted in less alterations and hassle from the start.

The dress looked great but for the price I paid along with the alterations, it was not worth it. I am selling the dress in order to recoup some of the costs.

I would definitely recommend that you go to the Wedding Belle try on dresses to see what's available and what looks best on you but I would not recommend that you buy one.

The Wedding Bell responded with the following comments:

I'm sorry for my delay in responding to this. I am confused by this. You said that you tried on the sz 12 we had in stock and that it was too big when you purchased. We did take measurements, and we measure by two different consultants to eliiminate mistakes. We do provide advice on sizing, but the final decision is up to you as far as size ordered. Based on what you have stated, a sz 10 would be in line for us to recommend, but, again, the final decision is up to you and is clearly stated on your contract. Normal alterations for bridal gowns do range from $250-500, so $300 in alterations is about what is expected. Please contact me at info@theweddingbellbride.com if you would like to discuss this further.

I tried a few different shops before going to The Wedding Bell, and I thought that their professionalism and the atmosphere of the shop itself were hands down the best. I found my dress at my first fitting here, and got a pretty good deal on it. That being said, the sales people here really know how to make a sale, and because I am someone who has a VERY hard time making decisions, I did feel a little bit pushed to make a decision that I wasn't 100% sure of.

Also, the promised follow-up to help me find a seamstress never happened, even though I actually called at one point to remind them that I was waiting for them to get me some recommendations. In the end, I found a seamstress on my own so it wasn't a big deal, but just something to be aware of. They finally did get back with me and were very apologetic, so I think it was just a fluke thing.

I would recommend this shop, but because you must rely on your sales person to bring you the dresses (I couldn't browse the rack like at other shops!) I would advise walking in with a very clear description of what you want, and what you are willing to compromise on as far as style, to help make the decision making process easier.

I absolutely loved the wedding dress I purchased at The Wedding Bell. The experience was overall pleasant, except for the fact that "ALL SALES ARE FINAL" and they will not allow you to return or exchange ANYTHING. I would recommend this salon for your wedding dress…however buyer beware…no returns or exchanges…so make sure you really want what you buy because you will be stuck with it (this includes jewelry, under garments, and shoes).

Love the atmosphere, love the history, love the store decor and selection. The service I received, however, was beyond UNACCEPTABLE.

I never write reviews when feeling like an aggrieved customer, but because I felt that proper reparations were not made I thought I would share my story...

I went into the store on the week of Christmas when I was home for the holidays to finalize my wedding dress selection with my mom. The girl I was working with was very helpful, courteous, polite, and seemed to know what she was doing... Fast forward four and a half months... April rolls around... My dress arrives... We pick it up and go to their recommended tailor.

THE DRESS WAS FIVE INCHES TOO SHORT.

I'm 5'6", thin, and a pretty "typical" wedding dress size (6). The employee who placed my order, it turns out, not only ordered the wrong size but also neglected to mention that the dress required 'extra length' be added. There was no hem to be let out, and with three months until my wedding it was unlikely to be able to make this dress--the one that I searched for over a year for--work. My mom told me to get new shoes so the dress would be the 'correct' length.

They were LOUBOUTINS. Not.a.chance.mom.

We took the dress back to the store, told them the situation, they apologized and expedited another dress--same style, etc.--and it arrived in time for my next scheduled fitting. They measured the dress. Same length. How do they not know the products they sell better than this?

I got a call, from the store owner, while I was in the airport in Atlanta on my way to Tennessee for a business trip letting me know the situation and that I had AN HOUR AND A HALF to make a decision if I wanted to order a new dress with 'extra length' because she had to place the order the same day in order to make sure that the new dress would arrive ONE WEEK before my wedding. I was thinking "is this a joke? clearly she knows tailoring, accessorizing, etc. take longer than a week."

Unacceptable, she SHOULD have taken care of the situation, expedited the new dress without cost to me as soon as possible. I cried, and ended up going back to the store THREE MONTHS before my wedding to try on new dress styles that I could buy 'off the rack' because of THEIR mistake. As it turns out that girl who helped me? Went back to school and no longer works there.

Fast forward to the wedding... I ended up adding yards of tulle under my dress to make up for the 4 inch gap between the hem and the floor. This cost me several hundred dollars in materials and alterations. That the store owner never once apologized for this inconvenience and utter lack of disregard for the "magic" of the wedding dress is appalling.

I would not recommend this store to anyone. Not to say mistakes aren't made, and flukes don't happen, but the way I feel about the customer service (owning a retail business myself) makes this unconscionable.

Not to mention the color of the flower on my flower girl's dress was changed in the process (they said by the manufacturer) and they basically told me to deal with it, or go buy a new one somewhere else. These are things that need to be considered when operating a wedding dress store!

The Wedding Bell responded with the following comments:

Sarah - I am completely baffled by this review. When you originally tried on dresses at our store, you tried on a sz 10 sample (which is going to be a little longer than the size that we ordered for you). When you called us originally about the issue, I thought that the dress possibly had a manufacturing defect based on our phone discussion. I quickly ordered the dress that they had in stock, because there was only one left. Your dress was at the seamstress', so I could not personally look at it before I ordered the second dress. I wanted to be safe. It was only when the second dress came in less than one week later that I realized that there was not a defect and that something else was going on. You did not relay to my consultant that you were wearing extremely high heels, but it is something that she should have asked you about when you ordered. I immediately got on the phone with the designer to see what we could do to get you a custom length dress. Yes, I did have to call you while you were on your business trip with only 1 1/2 hours to get back to them, because that was our only option. That was me paying for rush cuts and rush shipment, and I made this very clear to you when we spoke. There was nothing else I could do at that point. You decided that it was cutting it too close to your wedding, and I honestly don't blame you for that. I did offer to work with you to select another dress or get a refund. My manager met you and your mother on a Sunday right away, and I have emails from both of you that it was a wonderful visit and thanked her and me for doing our best to help you. You decided to stay with your dress, but I gave you as many options as I possibly could give you and worked with you on the best possible solution under the circumstances. I apologized to you multiple times, and I checked in with you multiple times. As far as the flower girl dress is concerned, it was ordered by the girl's mother. I verified the color and size with her multiple times before it was ordered. It came in exactly per the signed contract on May 24th, and it was not picked up until July. You brought it back to the store on July 22nd and said that you wanted white (even though that is not what is ordered and had already been delivered to you). Even though it was against the contract, I let you exchange it out for a white dress that was in stock, because there was no time to order another one.

How terrible are the girls at The Wedding Bell! I walked in to browse and get more information about the wedding gown process, and the girls were absolutely vicious! Immediately when I walked in the were very judgmental and rude, stating that if didn't have an appointment I wasn't welcome to try on dresses and work with a consultant. One blonde gal very rudely told me that I would need to make an appointment to come back, and at that they had a closed inventory so I wouldn't be allowed to look at or pick the dresses out anyway. I felt so embarrassed and attacked that I just left without even giving my information or trying to set up an appointment. Why would I want to go back to a place that made me feel so insignificant and unworthy? Ladies beware of this store, I wouldn't waste a dime in there.

Please send me an email at info@theweddingbell.com with details. Your experience is out of character for our store. We do work by appointment, but will take walk-ins if we are not fully booked. We obviously can't divert a consultant away from a bride who did make an appointment. The only blonde girl that works for me is one of the sweetest consultants on the planet, so I want to know what day you were in and what was said.

Do yourself a favor, Avoid the hastle!! I should have looked up this yelp info before I went here. Shayna R. is a girlfriend of mine and I see she wrote a review very similar to the complaints I have had. She experienced these things years earlier. It seems things have not been corrected.

All of my bridesmaids had to fight with the staff to order smaller sizes. My maid of honor was told she needed a size 4 sizes bigger than she is. She is a 2 in normal clothes and they wanted to order her a 10. She put her foot down for the smaller size and she was right. Even that was a bit too big! Then I learned one of my bridesmaids had to have 16 inches cut off the sides of the dress because they ordered her dress too big. She also was charged an extra "plus size" fee, which she ended up cutting off!! Unless you talk to the owner, Kim, you wont be able to get anything done. But that will be difficult, because she doesn't live in the state, shes out of the time zone. Oh and on top of all this, I was told my bridesmaids dresses would be ready in July and they didn't come in till August, and I paid a rush fee for a guaranteed date. The only reason I didn't have trouble with my dress is because I knew exactly which dress I wanted and they happened to have the size/color and style I asked for as a sample. Then the seamstress on site gave me a quote of $350 to add cups to my dress and add a 3-pt bustle. I took the dress to a local seamstress and paid $25. Unfortunately, they have all their brides over a barrel. Stand up for yourself. They are not looking out for your best interest! You are one of many brides at this bridal shop. Its a shame because many of the ladies in my family had gone there for their dresses and had a different experience 30 years ago.

The Wedding Bell responded with the following comments:

We don't fight with anyone on a size. We make a size RECOMMENDATION. If we recommend a size 14 and you want to order a size 2, that is completely up to you. We can only take measurements and recommend based on the designer's size chart. In addition, we don't have "guaranteed" ship dates as clearly outlined in our contracts. We do our very best to get the dresses in on time, but we are dependent on our designers to ship on time. Some things are outside of our control. Please send me an email at info@theweddingbell.com, then I can research your specific situation. Our alterations prices are clearly provided, and no one is obligated to use our services. My seamstress' have over 100 years combined of experience, so, yes, it is not going to cost you $25 for what you described. In addition, a 3 point bustle and cups sewn in is $118, not $350. And, I am always available to speak with a client. My personal cell number is all over the place. It does not matter where I am physically located.

they sized EVERY person in my bridal party to big, I ordered 2 sized smaller than they suggested and it fit perfect, although having the bust taken in and some minor adjustments my alterations were still almost $500!! unfortunately for my bridesmaids they listened to their sizing advice and had to pay a lot in alterations fee's, every dress was 4-5 inches too big around!! the only thing the wedding bell did was return the 40$ they made them pay extra for having a large size.

the dresses are pretty but lets be honest everyone carries the same ones, don't go to the wedding bell unless you are prepared to spend way more than the price on the tag!!

As we discussed, there was an issue with your sizing recommendations. I refunded the size charge and told you we would alter the sides at our expense. I am not sure why you are saying this is "all we did." Since you didn't leave your name, please email me at info@theweddingbell.com if you think there is something different. If this is the situation I think it is, you didn't want to bring the dresses to my seamstress' to do the work. I am the first to admit it if we made a mistake and fix it, so I am very surprised to see this. Clearly, we talked about this situation, or you would not mention a refund.

I would never recommend this store to anybody..the people there definitely does not have any regards or consideration with mankind and is all just about making money..they will do everything in their power just to get money from you..will even blatantly lie about the things they previously said because it was never written..all they care about is that they have this contract in stone that they can use against you..no matter what the circumstances are..bad customer service for sure..cause a real business will definitely look at certain circumstances..

Faith - As I have explained to you and your friends, when you sign an all sales final contract, it is all sales final. You signed three different places that you understood this was an all sales final transaction. I'm sorry that you are upset, but I really don't know what else to say at this point. - Kim
