I had a great experience with True Love Bridal and their staff. I visited in October 2011 looking for a gown. I had a few that I tried on and liked, but nothing that I loved. No one pressured me to buy a dress, and I was open about having other appointments at other shops. I found my Maggie Sottero dress (Parisianna) at a different shop (it was a newer gown at the time, and True Love didn't have the sample for me to see/try on), but Gail was able to order it for me and offered a lower price than the shop where I found it.

I knew the dress would take 6-8 months to arrive because of its manufacturer. Originally I was told it would arrive in early May, but it came in the first week of June. It arrived with plenty of time to be fit and altered, and I don't blame the shop for the delay as they were not the ones making and shipping the dress. I also received free shoes from the shop as a promotion that was going on at the time I purchased my dress, so that was a nice savings. I had them dyed red by an associate of the store, and they came out beautifully.

I also ordered 5 bridesmaid dresses from the shop. They were ordered in November and all arrived by April. Everyone's dress fit great, although we had slight alterations done elsewhere (everyone went to their own seamstress).

I had alterations done at the store by Lydia. She did a wonderful job, even keeping her appointment with me when she was suffering from Shingles. My dress fit perfectly by the time it was done, and it looked beautiful the day of the wedding.

Overall, I was very pleased with my experience!

I went here for my dress in December and it arrived in June. I did start to panic it wouldn't be in on time so I started calling on a regular basis to see what the status was of the dress. I do wish they would have called me to keep me up to date more, but not really a big deal. It may not be the fanciest dress shop, but they have alot of dresses! Overall, I would recommend to a friend and would definitley return for special occasion dresses.

I went to True Love Bridal after my first attempt at wedding dress shopping didn't go as well as I had hoped. I knew I wanted a Maggie Sottero dress and had a particular style in mind but was unable to find it anywhere in the area to try on. When I called True Love to see if they carried it, not only did they contact the designer to see if they could get it but she also suggested similar dresses that I might like as well. I ended up with a different Maggie but I couldn't have been happier. My dress came in when I was told it would. I was able to set up my alterations in the shop with Lydia (who was great to work with!). She was even able to order me the veil I wanted on extremely short notice. Overall I was very happy with my experience at True Love and wouldn't change a thing.

I was so torn whether or not to order my dress from True Love after the extremely mixed reviews I saw. A good friend of mine ordered her bridal dress, 5 bridesmaids and 2 mom dresses from there a year before my wedding and had a positive experience, so I trusted her over the reviews on the internet. Plus they are open all weekend, and it's easy to get an appointment.
After going to over 7 different stores, I found “the one” at true love. They have a large selection, and let you look through the racks. Michelle helped me, she actually pulled the dress I ended up picking, and was not at all pushy when I wasn’t ready to order yet. They even let me take pictures, which is forbidden at some places. Gail was very informative and answered all my questions, you can tell she knows this business. Once I finally decided to order my dress there, double checked everything on the order form for accuracy…except for the price. The dress was $100 more than when I originally tried it on about a month before. Gail said that since she already wrote up the order she couldn’t change it (I don’t understand this since it was written in pen and she just charged us for a deposit) but she did give us a $100 credit towards accessories, which I was happy with since I planned to get my veil there.
We looked for bridesmaid dresses there, and were basically given a room and told to try on whatever we wanted. Two of my bridesmaids couldn’t fit into the samples so we were hoping they would help give us an idea of how they would look by pinning the dresses, but we were on our own. After finding the dress at a different shop, we ended up ordering at true love since the price was lower. I think the dress was priced at $159 on the tag and she wrote it up for $168 or something, so I pointed it out that the price tag said $159 and she quickly changed it (still don’t understand why she couldn’t change my bridal gown price this easily!).
I got my dress and the bridesmaid dresses during the time frame Gail gave us. I came in a few times after ordering the dress to try it on, once to show my future mother and sister in law for the first time, along with looking at mother of the bride dresses. I had to keep asking if I could try my dress on. Gail and the sales woman didn’t seem to want me to try the dress on. They were saying they were busy and didn’t have a room. I kept asking and finally used the room once the moms were done. The sales woman helped me into the dress, but did not bother helping me out. I definitely noticed a difference in their attitudes after I purchased the dress.
Once my actual dress came in, I shopped for accessories. It was empty the afternoon I came, so Gail allowed us to stay as long as we liked, looking at different veils, jewelry and shoes. She was very helpful in calling companies to see which veils were in stock, and would get to me in my time frame. I also ordered shoes to be dyed. They were supposed to be in before my second fitting, which was about 2 weeks away. When I came in for that fitting, the shoes could not be found. Gail was out that morning, so I called back the next day to check the status. The shoes could not be found, so Gail had to reorder them. Luckily they came in before my final fitting, but I had to pick them up from Gail, bring them to the seamstress- Lydia’s shop down the street for my fitting (I had a good experience, but 2 of my bridesmaids had horrible experiences where one dress was stained after being dropped off, and both were incorrectly altered and had to be taken out and redone), then bring them back to True Love so they could be dyed. They were ready to be picked up a week or so later, and I got them when I picked up the dress.
The dress and shoes turned out perfect! I had a few bumps along the way, but overall I’d say my experience with true love was positive. As with any vendor in the bridal industry, you have to double check everything before you sign.

Went to several places looking for bridesmaids dresses and figured I would give True Love Bridal a chance. That was the BIGGEST MISTAKE EVER. We ordered 2 bridesmaids dresses and a maid of honor dress. The dresses were ordered were promised to us in February and did not come in until April. Getting married is stressful, but it is absolutely ridiculous when you need to worry about your dress and the fact that you have no dresses for the bridal party. When the dresses came in, the maid of honor dress was WAY too small. The girl asked the salesperson to order her a bigger size and she gave her an attitude that they do this for a living and she is wrong, a bigger dress would be huge on her. Needless to say, the dress they ordered her did not fit , it was way too small. The owner would not even try to fix it, her response was too bad, deal with it. That is unprofessional and unacceptable. She then measured her again and it turns out she’s a smaller size than originally. That means the dress should be too big, not too small. I am so happy I did not order my bridal gown there and do not recommend it. With any business, if there is an issue you should stand behind your product. They did not. Once you signed the paper that you wanted that dress no matter what happens it’s not their problem and they do not care. If you go there, it will add to your stress level and in my case it is going to be a long night for the poor girl whose dress is too small and needs to squeeze into it! Don’t waste your time looking there; I don’t know how people have good reviews on this crappy place. STAND BEHIND YOUR PRODUCT!

Gail and True Love Bridal were great. From the first day I walked into the store to browse, I felt comfortable. Gail and her staff were friendly and made sure that I got the dress that looked the best on me. Everything was perfect except that most of the bridesmaid dresses were too big yet the seamstress was able to make the alterations very quickly. Thank you True Love Bridal!

I first saw True Love Bridal at a bridal show with my fiance. I went home and did some research on the different bridal shops in the area and came up with my list. I called around on a Thursday evening to see where I could get an appointment and True Love was able to squeeze me in. My mom and I showed up and started pulling different dresses. They definitely have a very large selection, but you do have to be patient and look through all of them. Gail was very helpful in identifying the dresses that would arrive in time for my wedding and which dresses wouldn't. They were very patient with me while I tried on dozens of dresses. I ended up leaving with nothing, but came back that weekend with my sisters. While there I found the perfect dress and my sisters also found bridesmaid dresses (although we did not order them there because it was too far away for my other bridesmaids).

My dress came 3 weeks before my wedding, but Gail made me feel super comfortable that we could get all of the fittings in. I came for 2 fittings and purchased my hairpiece, bridesmaid jewelry and accessories from True Love. Gail put all of the girls necklaces in cute little silk bags and they absolutely loved them. Although I was a little nervous when I had no dress 1 month away from my wedding (and my mother even more nervous) everything worked out perfectly and my experience at True Love was great.

I went to True Love Bridal for my dress after one of my bridesmaids found them after searching for the bridesmaid dress I had wanted. We worked with Gail, who was so helpful and sweet. She gave us a great price for the dresses, since we ordered 7 of them. As far as my gown, I found a sample I absolutely fell in love with...the price was ridiculously good and the service was just as great.
