I live 1.5 hours from Raleigh but the trip was totally worth it to find my perfect bridal gown. Traditions was very responsive to my inquiry and setup a time for me and my Mom, Godmother and sister-in-law to come in (no easy feat to get that many women in one place but they worked with us!). I had a general idea of what I did not want in a gown but no real set picture in my mind of what I did want. Unlike some other boutiques we were given a dedicated sales person to help us through the process. Not only was she professional, knowledgeable and patient, she was also calm. In years past I was a wedding planner and trust me when I say that a calm vendor is worth SO much during this process.
I was on a tight timeline but my dress arrived in plenty of time and even had the embellishments I requested added. Let’s be honest, wedding gowns are expensive, however the quality and variety of their inventory matches the value that you receive. I felt I received a very personal experience and that too is priceless. I highly recommend you go and see the wonderful staff at Traditions. You will walk out with your wedding gown!

Went to Traditions by Anna for my first adventure in wedding dresses, and it was so wonderful! Not only were the dresses fabulous, but the service was outstanding. Erica was sweet, helpful, and apart from giving us a card with the styles we liked and their prices at the end of the appointment, she didn't pull out any "salesmanship" ploys, but rather respected the fact that I wasn't ready to buy. I'd recommend this shop to anyone!!

If you want a high quality dress at a reasonable price, keep a lookout for sample sales that happen a few times per year. You'll need to make an appointment and make sure it is one of the first ones (you'll have the largest selection). The staff was lovely, even though I was not part of their high end clientele. I felt like a princess and I was not rushed at any point. They allowed me to Facetime with my step mom and I took forever to pick between two dresses. And still, they were friendly and helpful.

One thing to be careful about with buying a sample - it will likely need to be cleaned before you wear it on your wedding day and this can alter the texture of some fabrics. This happened in my case and it actually changed the structure of the dress. It was (moderately) fixed, but I wish I would have known about this issue before going down the path.

Love this place! It was the very last place I decided to go before buying my dress. I was already to get a dress from another place, but my mom asked me if I wanted to go to 1 more place. Traditions is a very nice place and the staff is incredibly friendly. I ended up finding my dress at Traditions and am so happy with it. They have a tailor righ text store to them who also is amazing and works wonders. Seriously. I had 1 fitting with her and that was it. THE DRESS FIT PERFECT. With the help and style of the ladies at Traditions they really made this purchase a breeze!

The most beautiful and professional bridal salon in the triangle! Traditions was my very first place to try on wedding gowns and I found my dress! When you first arrive, you are greeted and offered a mimosa. (loved this!) I liked you were able to pick out gowns you liked and then the consultant would pick out a few as well. The dresses are all in perfect condition, no stains, tears, or extremely large sizes (hard to visualize yourself in). The gowns were reasonably priced, but you truly get what you paid for. It was the absolute perfect bridal experience I have always pictured with my mom! There is no other place in comparison, every gown was beautiful, they have amazing accessories as well! I am so in love with my veil, it made the dress and the pictures were stunning! Everyone there was so wonderful, very professional and they really made you feel special. They are the best!

It is a beautiful store, has amazing dresses, and the entire staff is friendly, helpful and professional. I worked with Emily Cox and she was amazing. She had great suggestions and helped me feel great! I ended up purchasing the first dress I tried on. I had so many compliments at my wedding about my dress and I wish I could do it all over again just so I can wear the dress again!

This is a second time around wedding for me; however, I was not able to have a really nice dress the first time—A LONG time ago. My daughter suggested TBA and, to be honest, I am not a traditional person and didn't expect to find anything. We made an appointment on what happened to be sample sale day and as soon as we walked in I saw "the dress". It was on a mannequin and had my name written all over it. I did pick a few to try on; but, ended up not trying on any of the others. Anna and her staff have been awesome. I have, what I hope to be, my final fitting this week. Maria has done a spectacular job in altering the larger sample size. I am so looking forward to wearing my beautifully, non-traditional dress!

I love my custom Lea Ann Belter dress that Emily helped me find at Traditions by Anna. She helped me decide on a blush underlay under white lace, which turned out stunning. TBA was also really helpful through the alterations process, since I had recently moved and had to travel back and forth for my fittings. Maria did an amazing job with my alterations. When I showed up three days before the wedding, I had lost more weight than expected and the dress needed to be taken in (again), and Maria finished it over night. I had excellent service and everyone I worked with was very nice and professional. They made me look and feel gorgeous on my wedding day!

Anna and her team are amazing at what they do. They take into account what the bride believes she wants while also using their knowledge of fashion, accessories, fit and style to make the most flattering and beautiful look. I was so happy with my dress and had a million compliments. Anna's seamstress, Maria, is outstanding and reasonably priced. She is efficient and very clearly knows her craft. The alterations were perfect. Aside from the product Anna provides, the customer service is second to none. They are personal, accessible, professional, organized and really create a sense of comfort that the final look will be exactly as requested. Love this store!

Had an amazing experience. The staff is extremely professional, patient and helpful. They were really flexible with scheduling fittings, as I don't live in Raleigh. Their seamstress did an absolutely amazing job creating from scratch a bolero that perfectly matched my wedding dress, down to the beading and lace- it was truly a work of art. I couldn't be happier with how the ensemble turned out! I've told so many people how amazing their dresses are, and have gotten so many compliments about my dress and bolero. I am extremely proud to tell people that I got my dress at Traditions!

My dress was my favorite part of my wedding. It was affordable, but beautiful and timeless. Susan, my stylist at Traditions, was like a mother to me throughout the process. She worried about me when I needed it. She checked in with me. She cried with me when I found the one. She was just so perfect. When I brought my sister's veil in that was not purchased with my dress, they steamed it for free! I can't say enough good things about all the lovely ladies at the salon. My maid of honor just bought her wedding dress there too!

Our experience with Traditions was exceptional. My daughter Tudi is a caterer and has seen many beautiful brides walk down the isle. She wanted something unique and everyone put their heads together to accomplish that goal. If I do say so, Tudi looked smashing in her Traditions creation. There were always warm greetings and friendly smiles each time we went in for fittings and they totally accomodated Tudi's work schedule. The "alterations angel" Maria was totally in the know and she gave us confidence. We felt that for what we got and what we paid, it was a value. We were thrilled and what fun! Picture perfect. We felt pampered.

I cannot say enough good things about Traditions by Anna Bridal Boutique! They were amazing in helping me find my bridal gown and the service was truly superior to any other bridal store I went to in the triangle area (and made the experience great, even though my mother could not come with me). I worked with Anna herself, but every employee is excellent. She helped me pick a dress (and order custom changes) as well as a veil and hair comb. Everything came out so perfectly we went pack and found my mom's mother of the bride dress there. We can't wait to wear our dresses on the big day.

TBA was the 4th store I went to try on bridal gowns and it obviously was my last stop! Before I arrived, Martha had pulled a handful of dresses and then walked me around the salon to pick out a few more. Martha made me feel confident about my decision and her opinions were very helpful. The seamstress, Maria, is an absolute marvel. She completely reconstructed the top portion of my dress and no one could tell. These ladies offer outstanding service, make you feel one of a kind, and have a wide selection of styles from which to choose.

From the first appointment down to the last fitting, I thoroughly enjoyed working with each and every member of their staff. I can't thank them enough for giving me such a wonderful experience!

AMAZING!! This is the best word to describe Traditions by Anna. They took the time and made me feel special when I went to pick out my dress. They spent a lot of time with me and let me try on several dresses and gave me their honest opinions. Even after I bought the dress, they let me come in and show the store model to my friends and when I took it to another lady to do my alterations and didn't use the one they recommended, they didn't act rude towards me at all. By far the most professional bridal place I went to in the Triangle and the BEST dresses by far.

I ordered my bridesmaids' dresses at TBA as well. The Lula Kate dresses were AMAZING!! There was a small miscommunication about if one of my bridesmaids should order a materity dress or not (she was only going to be 5 months pregnant at the wedding) and when it came in it didn't fit. They handled the situation WONDERFULLY. They didn't say, "Sorry we can't help you" or "You can buy another one, but there is nothing else we can do." Instead, Anna called me herself and we talked about it. My bridesmaid went in the next day and within 2 weeks, she had a new dress! They are AMAZING!!

The old saying, "You get what you paid for" is SO TRUE!! The dresses aren't cheap, but it is SO WORTH IT. I won't lie, I went over my budget on my dress but I would do it again in a heart beat. The service at TBA is great, their dresses are in style, and their customer service is out of this world! If you go, ask to work with MARTHA, she is amazing. Anyone that lives within 2 hours of the Triangle should go to TBA to get their dress, their bridesmaids' dresses, and their mother of the brides dress!

Just read the negative review about Emily and I'm stunned. She was my consultant and I could not have had a better experience! She was helpful without being pushy and was incredibly patient with my mom, sister and me as I had a difficult time choosing between a few different styles. She's the one that ultimately helped me select my dress (Paloma Blanca, style 4166).
As far as Traditions as a whole, I would 100% recommend that brides make an appointment to try gowns on here. Their gowns are exquisite and the value and customer service cannot be beat. They even gave me a phone call out of the blue a few days ago to see how my wedding went and asked me to bring in pictures. Great boutique!

Anna and her staff are wonderful and very kind. Anna donated jewelry for my wedding through Operation Marry Me Military. She gave me my pick of the store and I couldn't have been more excited with what she let my maid of honor and I have to wear. Since I'm not from the Raleigh area and my wedding was coming up quickly, I didn't have time to order a dress through Traditions but they still steamed and prepared my gown for me after getting to town. Anna has a beautiful store and any bride will have fun visiting.

I am absolutely SHOCKED to read reviews that are anything less than a 5! Martha (my consultant) and Anna (the owner) were absolutely wonderful to work with and I would recommend them to any of my friends in a heartbeat. We had a great experience with the entire staff - even with Maria who does the alterations. Their dress selection is fabulous and they seem to have something to fit most budgets. The classy and elegant atmosphere of their store was wonderful; what a great place to begin all of the wedding festivities!

I cannot thank the ladies from Traditions by Anna enough. Each and every person helped to make my special day perfect. They urged me to try on different styles which helped me to find the perfect dress. It was a style that I didnt expect but without their help I never would have found it. They made dress shopping and all of the fitting feel so special. Maria, the in-house tailor is a miracle worker! I have never seen such flawless tailoring! My dress had multiple layers and intricate beading at the waist and had to be altered by about 4 inches and it looked absolutely perfect! Thanks again ladies! I recommend Traditions by Anna 100%

I went to Traditions in "distress" because the dress I had ordered from a different boutique still had not arrived...it was 3 months past the due date that boutique gave me. I walked in just to "look around" not expecting to be able to try anything on. When I told Jane my story about my other dress she immediately took me in, rearranged her brides for that time slot and allowed me to try on dresses. I ended up falling IN LOVE with a dress there, and I was nervous about buying because I knew I had to pay for the entire other dress as well, but how do you say no to your crying mother? Anna made sure that my dress was in on time and did not charge me a rush fee. Alterations was great. Everything about the experience was fantastic. I am so glad that I stumbled upon that dress. I received sooooo many compliments and when my other dress did come in, everyone said they were soooooo happy that I had gone to Traditions and bought that dress. I HIGHLY recommend Traditions by Anna for your wedding gown.

This was the first and only place I looked for a dress. The service was fantastic. I asked for minor alterations to be made, which the designer was happy to do. I worked with Tempe and Anna, both were so kind and very helpful. Anna made wonderful suggestions for a place to get my shoes dyed and a place to have my dress preserved. Their seamstress was also great...she did a great job with the final fittings and even added some jewels to my veil.

I purchased my dress from Traditions by Anna. They have a beautiful selection of dresses. I chose this boutique because there was a dress in particular that I had in mind, which I had tried on earlier in a different city. I searched around at other shops before ending up at Traditions. The dress was expensive, but comparable to the prices I had seen elsewhere. On top of that, they offered me a discount incentive for first time clients that might want to buy the dress at the first visit or shortly after. I thought this was a nice touch from a sales standpoint, offering a discount option rather than overtly pressuring to purchase the dress on the spot. Their alterations person did an amazing job. I asked for a good amount of tulle to be removed from the dress and boning to be added among other things. I was concerned initially about making structural changes, but it came out beautifully. The alterations price was pretty steep, but it was worth it. The dress was perfect. The sales people are friendly, although some seem as though they may be trying a little too hard to be nice to you.

Anna and all of her girls are wonderful!! I loved going into the store and working with all of them! I would recommend getting your dress from them. I loved all of them!

HOWEVER, do not get your dress altered there. Maria was a nightware to deal with. She forgot to alter the top and then told me I lost 3 inches off my rib cage (impossible). She was supposed to put my new married initials into the lining, but typed my wrong intials. The bussle broke during the ceremony and my dress was not ready until the day before my wedding. That being said, Anna was wonderful to work with and very apologetic about the whole situation. She brought the dress to my house since Maria was running so late.

Traditions is wonderful, just word to the wise ... find your own seamstress.

The best part of Traditions by Anna is Maria, the woman who does the alterations. She literally eyeballed my final alteration and didn't pin a thing and I picked it up 2 days before my ceremony and the dress fit PERFECTLY!

I had a pleasant interaction with everyone at Traditions. The only difficulty I had was that I was coming from DC to get fitted and their alterations schedule was not extremely flexible so it took a lot of reorganizing my schedule to get it to work with theirs.

I had seen many negative reviews about this shop that I was nervous about my appointment at Traditions. But I was pleasantly surprised!

They have a wide selection of gown styles and various price points. By and large though, the gowns run on the traditional side (hence the name?).

Tempie was a terrific saleslady. She was honest, helpful, and not pushy at all. Unlike another salon in the area, she was more than supportive with the idea of using an ivory colored gown from the bridesmaid collection as the bridal gown. When I wanted to try on dresses a 2nd time with friends, she was more than happy to accommodate. At the end of the 2nd visit, she helped narrow my sights on a dress that worked well for my body and my wallet. In the end, my dress was made by a family member. The fact that I had a hard time not buying a dress from Tempie is a testament to the great experience I had with her and the shop.

I came to Traditions for their sample sale and hadn't planned on buying a gown, but I absolutely fell in love with my dress here! Kristin pulled the gown and encouraged me to try it on even though I wasn't sure about it on the hanger. Once it was on, I knew it was my dress. Kristin and Anna were both very professional, friendly, and offered great advice. The store itself is lovely. I would encourage anyone, even those on a budget, to visit Traditions. I too was on a budget, but I am willing to pay more for a quality dress and shopping experience and Traditions is as good as it gets! Their sample sale features beautiful gowns for a reasonable price, and all their regularly priced gowns are truly stunning! Thanks Kristin and Anna!

Their sample sale features beautiful gowns for a reasonable price, and all their regularly priced gowns are truly stunning! Thanks Kristin and Anna! Read less

I had the most wonderful experience at Traditions by Anna! From the moment we walked in I felt like a princess. Their staff was so friendly and everything from trying the dresses on, to picking the perfect gown, to the wedding day was seamless, organized, and so wonderful!

Though my dress was beautiful ('Justine' by Robert Bullock) this was the one part of my entire wedding planning that was unpleasant. When I came in, I was thrilled, but through trying on dresses I began to feel as if I were just a nuisance and Emily, might as well have had her hand out waiting for my credit card the entire time. It was just rushed, all business. I came in drenched from the rain outside and we weren't even offered water. The next time I came back there was a girl walking around with champagne! Just not friendly people! I took my business to J Majors in Charlotte!

When i visited the store to just look and possibly see what this boutique had to offer, No one came up to ask if i needed help or even offered to schedule an appointment. There was also whispers at the desk about me. I was disgusted by their lack of responsiveness and inability to even acknowledge that I was there. Oh yea I forgot to mention no one even said "Welcome to Anna's" !!
