I live in Colorado and will be moving back east in the spring, however when my bridesmaids made an appointment at The Wedding Library in NY I was very nervous to "be sure" of my choices since this was the only time I had with them to look at bridesmaid dresses.

The setting was very intimate which made it easy me and my girls to try on the dresses we were interested in and also get that one-on-one feeling with the staff there. Everyone listened to our concerns and offered help or suggestions on how to make our look exquisite.

Once we left the store and decisions had been made, i had the easiest time getting questions answered. I loved working with Chelsea at The Wedding Library. She was so helpful and very responsive. If i ever had hesitations for my decisions while I was there she was there to reassure me and send me photos of alternate dress colors when I asked. She was able to get me the swatches of the colors I wanted within a day!

Everyone knows that planning a wedding isn't easy, especially when you like thousands of miles away from the venue you haven't even seen. They're help has put my mind to ease which is something every bride needs!

The Wedding Library carries most of the Joanna August line which I was interested in for my bridesmaids! It was very easy to book an appointment, and Chelsea was incredibly helpful and attentive. Their selection is just the right amount and very well curated, which means it's not overwhelming and you can easily find exactly what you're looking for. We came away with the perfect options for my six bridesmaids and have already placed the order!

She also worked out the timing for us to order during a trunk sale so we got an additional discount, and was very responsive on emails for ordering.

The only downside is shipping, as I live abroad along with a few of my bridesmaids, and international shipping was incredibly expensive (about 50% of the cost of the dress), so the dresses will be shipped to my parents house and then I will have to coordinate delivery. If you live in the US this would not be a problem though, and other than this everything else was perfect. Looking forward to receiving!

I worked with Chelsea on ordering beautiful Dessey dresses for my 9 bridesmaids and Victoria for my Save the Dates and Wedding Invitations. Both ladies are wonderful to work with! Especially on the invitations since I had 0 idea about etiquette, fonts, timing, etc. Definitely made these 2 tasks very stress free. And they have such a great selection of timeless and trendy bridesmaids dresses in designer styles and in a variety of price ranges.

I got my bridesmaids dresses from the Wedding Library. They had the entire Joanna August collection, which I loved. They are Romantic and not the cliche, typical bridesmaids dresses. you always see. I also wanted my bridesmaids to pick their own dress, but similar style, because they all have different tastes and bodies and I wanted them to feel beautiful and confident in whatever they wore and the Joanna August collection is perfect for that. I love how they looked in the pictures. Everyone at the wedding library was so helpful, even with my bridesmaids changing their minds about what dress they wanted, no big deal. Shipping was easy, couldn't be happier. I also had Claudia and Rebecca as my day of wedding coordinators. Brides to be, have at least a day of coordinator! Its a must. Even if a venue says they will do it all, odds are they won't its important to have people you can trust that will have your day run smoothly. Last thing you want to do on you wedding day is to stress over details. I had 100% confidence in Claudia and Rebecca. So professional and organized. Forever grateful.

I booked an appointment with the Wedding Library because I was looking for a dress by a specific designer. We came here after another appointment elsewhere which was awful. As I was looking, I found a great Amsale dress that was part of a sample sale they were having. It was not in the color I wanted so I had my internal struggle. I wish I could remember the girls name who helped us, as she was very patient with me as I made the girls try on the final dresses numerous times. The space is small, I believe only one group can be there at any given time, and I believe your appointment is timed, as at the very end of the appointment when the girls were getting measured we felt a little rushed. So I wish when you make an appointment they tell you you only have "x" amount of time there. The dresses came in last week and they are great. Thank you!

This is my first review EVER but I felt inclined to write a review based on the wonderful experience I had choosing bridesmaids dresses at The Wedding Library. 2 of my BM's and I first went to another shop that had a larger selection, but they didn't have a variety of sizes to try on and the dresses were completely worn out. Not to mention, the service was not that great. I decided to try The Wedding Library because most of the dresses I liked were Amsale and they carry a large Amsale selection and variety of sizes. We worked with Chelsea and she was absolutely amazing! She made us feel comfortable and was attentive to helping the girls in and out of the dresses. She made great suggestions and offered good advice about the types of alterations each dress would need. When the girls needed to submit order forms, Chelsea was extremely responsive to all of my emails and provided me with detailed instructions for placing my order. The order won't arrive until February, but so far I have nothing but positive things to say about my experience.

Working with Kate at the Wedding Library was great. When I arrived without the bride-to-be looking for a bridesmaid dress, Kate sent me back with approximately 10 different dresses. She gave her honest opinion and didn't mind at all that I wanted to try on a few dresses twice. Nor did she mind that I had to skype in the bride to be! (Quietly!). Not only that, but my dress came in way earlier than I thought. My only wish is that they had bride gowns, too. That, and it's very hard to get an appointment! I had to wait 6 weeks (but not big deal because the wedding isn't for months). Kate and Wedding Library group were great and when it is my day, I will return there for sure. Thanks Kate!

My bridesmaids and I had a fabulous experience with the Wedding Library.

Kathryn took care of my girls, and thanks to her they were all comfortable (even girls who were really unsure about sizing due to pregnancy and weight loss--she patiently walked them through it) and we found to most beautiful dresses for the big day. Can't wait to finally see them all wearing them!

We came here after going to a popular chain store and the difference in the gowns and the atmosphere was remarkable. You and your girls should have beautiful experiences every step of the way and this will definitely be one of them. (Plus, its near Dylan's Candy Bar and Serendipity, so if you want to treat your bridesmaids to a girly-fun date after there's options nearby!)

Ask to book your appointment on a slow day (you may have to take off from work, but its worth it) so that you and your girls don't feel overwhelmed by other brides, etc.

Will definitely be bringing my girlfriends here when its their time too! :)
