I had always dreamed of going to Vera's since I was a little girl. I ended up purchasing a dress that wasn't the original one I had come back to order. Between several visits I tried on probably about 30 dresses. They were always super accommodating and I never felt rushed, even on a Saturday! Their dress selection is huge and I ordered the bridesmaid dresses from here as well.

I went with Vera's because they were the only place around that had the dress that I fell in love with online - but am really impressed with the help and service they provided. I DO think we're being ripped off a little bit when it comes to the alterations - it's standard pricing when it comes to bridal stores, nothing more, but waay more than an individual who does alterations out of their home, for example - but you pay a little extra for the peace of mind that if they screw up, it's on them. I would definitely go back and get my dress again there if I had to, though, I just might take my alterations elsewhere. No huge complaints, though!

I had a great experience with Vera's House of Bridals. I made an appointment to try on dresses and my consultant was very helpful in helping me find the perfect dress. She listened to what I liked/disliked and was very professional. I only had to try on 10-15 dresses before I found THE dress, and I even got to meet Vera!

Helpful tips for future brides:
1. Make an appointment (preferably during the day or on a non-busy time). I had my own room and consultant and I didn't feel rushed at all.

2. Start shopping early! My wedding is in ~6 months and because Vera's guarantees delivery of the dress, I was only able to shop for dresses that they had in the store.

I shopped around at probably 5-7 other bridal shops before coming to Vera's. I went to small shops, big shops (David's Bridal) and I was definitely most impressed with Vera's.

I first made an appointment at Vera's on a weeknight with my sister in tow. Our consultant was Tory. I was very impressed with Vera's, and with Tory. Tory listened to what I wanted in a wedding dress, and then went off to find some for me. The first few were hit and miss, but with each dress Tory asked "Do you like this more or less than the last one? What do you like/not like about this dress?" She paid attention to my budget as well. Almost all of the dresses she showed me were within my budget, and the few that weren't she let me know before I even tried them on, so I could decline if I wanted. I ended up falling in love with two different dresses, and had to place a deposit to hold them until I could come back with my mom. When I returned, the service was just as exemplary as it was the first time I was there. I also ordered a sparkly sash with them, and they called me when it arrived. They were very accommodating when I asked if I could have my maid of honor pick it up for me.

The dress I bought was cash & carry (I think it was a sample dress, or a dress that had been discontinued) so Vera's did not do alterations on those dresses. They referred me to two of their seamstresses who do alterations on the side out of their homes, and I had my alterations done by Mariam, who was very spirited and funny.

Overall, a great experience with everyone involved.

I have nothing but positive things to say about Vera's. Let me start with how they saved my mom on my June 13, 2015 wedding!

My mom lives in Tennessee and has had her dress for months. It was a royal blue dress and she loved it. Unfortunately, amidst all of the chaos (getting ready to drive 11 hours to Madison with my dad and seven other relatives), she left her dress behind. She was incredibly upset. Unfortunately, she was unable to go shopping Friday night due to the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner. The morning of my wedding, my dad went to pick up his tuxedo at Nedrebo's on Big Sky and fortunately, Vera's was connected. My mom saw a beautiful royal blue dress that fit but was too long. So what does Vera's do? They promise that they'll have the dress altered by noon that day. And they kept their promise! My mom looked stunning in her new dress and I never would've guessed that she bought the dress the day of my wedding. All the guests I've told were in shock! Thank you so much for your amazing service, Vera's!

I got my wedding dress and bridesmaids dresses from Vera's. First, my wedding dress. I can't remember who my consultant was unfortunately, but she was amazing! I was confident I wanted a simple chiffon A-line dress, but after bringing me all the chiffon dresses in the store, I still wasn't in love with any. I asked her if she had any dresses in the shape that I like, and she brings me this dress I never thought I'd like. But I loved it! It was a sample, too, so I ended up taking it home that day for a great price. I also came back a couple of months later for a corset, a veil, and a custom-ordered sash. Everything came quickly and looked great! Second, my bridesmaids dresses. I came in on two different occasions: one to look at swatches and one to pick out a dress. I was incredibly happy with my service both times.

Overall, I highly recommend Vera's for all of your dress needs! Amazing service. You won't be disappointed!

The service, selection, and setting couldn't have been better! They really get to know you and know their selection well enough to find you exactly what you want. The dressing rooms are gorgeous and huge! You don't get an annoyed look when you walk in (like a surprising number of other boutiques) and they seem genuinely happy to help you! Vera is usually around and will dote on you like a favorite grandmother.
