I was a bridesmaid in a bridal party and we got our Amsale dresses at the Wedding Library. Kiera was our consultant and was super helpful since our bride had no idea what she wanted when we walked in. We all ended up with different style gowns that made us each feel special and comfortable. Kiera was able to help guide us each into a gown that we loved and most of all that the bride loved! So excited for our gowns to arrive! Thanks Kiera!

I was so disappointed with my experience here. We purchased 7 dresses for my bridesmaids. The space itself was small, messy and very hot. The staff were nice but seemed very inexperienced and junior. That reflected in the fact that the suggested sizes for my girls which ended up being huge for each and every one of them. For the price of these dresses I expected a little more attention to detail. Now the girls need to spend more money in extensive alterations. I understand that there are "bridal" sizes that vary by the designer but I would expect that the style of dress (in my case a Flowy gown) would have been considered. And the return/exchange policy is terrible. It's almost designed to make you keep your dresses regardless. They might as well not have one. I really regret purchasing the dresses here. This is coming from someone that never spends the time to write a review- good or bad -but I am so upset about this experience.

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!

Non-responsive, absolutely TERRIBLE customer service, filthy dresses to try on, no flexibility, and very shady with signing a "contract" indicating no exchanges or returns. Three girls in the wedding party received dresses 3+ sizes too large. The store and dresses were dirty. I called and emailed multiple times to see if I could exchange or re-order the dress in my correct size and it took a month to get an answer. I'm in my 20s living in NYC and will be telling everyone I know to shop elsewhere. I plan on contacting Amsale (which has gorgeous dresses) to warn them of the horrible service The Wedding Library is doing to their gowns. A $300 gown that now requires nearly $200 in alterations! Don't bring your bridesmaids here!

I ordered 5 bridesmaids dresses for my bridal party from here. Everyone I worked with was helpful and responsive. The dresses came in way earlier than expected and they were able to recommend tailors. We went with Amsale but they have a vast selection of other designers. They also were able to walk through different color and style options with me. We went during the trunk show and were able to receive a discount. Great experience and everybody looked beautiful the day of my wedding!

We used the Wedding Library to order 6 bridesmaids dresses for an Aug 2015 wedding. The Wedding Library has a nice boutique feel, which is less overwhelming than some of the larger store options. However, I found it a bit hard to sift through the dresses which are very compact on the hangers. Be prepared to do some digging through hangers to find a dress that you like. My MOH and I ultimately found a dress that we loved, and ordered 6 of them. We wound up selecting a dress that was $100 more than we were hoping because we had trouble finding any other options. Each dress arrived on time and as expected. Several dresses were smoothly shipped and delivered to bridesmaids out of state. There were no complications with the dress sizes themselves, either. The Wedding Library was responsive when I checked in about our order throughout the process.

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!
