This was the very first place that I went to look at wedding dresses and my friend had bought her dress here. I was super excited and I had brought my family with me. The ladies here were so rude and talked down to us. When I explained to her what I was looking for and showed her photos, she got very rude and hostile. I explained that I was looking for something simple. The salesperson told me in a very condescending tone that the photos I showed her aren't really what the dress will look like. And I could order it on the internet but that they couldn't fix it once it comes. And they do not do that. I explained that all I was looking for was a simple dress and do they have that. After that she finally brought out something simple. The dress was more what I was looking for. But after the way that she treated me, I would not have bought it even if I loved it. The salesperson here was terrible and I would NEVER recommend this place.

Loved working with Vicky. She is very attentive to making my day very special. Her main concern was me. She takes your budget into consideration. She is very good at talking to you about what your preference of style might be -- and making suggestions of dresses that are most suitable for you. I knew I found my dress as soon as I tried it on.

I was so happy I was recommended to check out Vows for my wedding dress. Vicki was wonderfully and has a really good eye for what styles look good on your body. She's straight forward which was really helpful for me and found me the most beautiful dress that fit in my budget. She is also very considerate of your budget and won't let you try on anything above unless you say so. She's very honest and professional and highly recommend making an appointment at Vows. I also liked the quick lesson in how to put in and walk in my dress because I had no idea! My dress came out perfectly!!

I was referred to from one of my family members since they got their dress from there so I figure check this place out. When I first walked in I was greeted and had to fill out a form with all my information. Ladies make sure you know your budget and style. The owner Vicki was helpful ,but I had a really hard time understanding her. From previous reviews I've read online they say she had cancer in the mouth so most of the time I just pretended I knew what she was talking about. Other than that they have a beautiful collection of dresses ,but unfortunately I didn't find my dress here.

Vows Bridal is a beautiful place where I purchased my wedding gown. They are honest and upfront on how you can maximize your budget and still have an amazing dress. They work with you no matter how your budget situation is and educate you on how to choose a right dress that fits your style. They have a great choice of selections. I highly recommend them for a more unique choice of style.

I had read some reviews on Yelp about this place and it seemed to be a mixed bag, mostly because of the gruffness of the woman who runs it. When I met Vicky I understood where the reviews were coming from: she had some kind of mouth cancer and is very difficult to understand, and she is incredibly straight forward- she's been doing this 30 years and KNOWS HER STUFF. She knows what will look good on your body type, and she isn't going to pussy foot around it. I had come in with my sister and a page of pictures and dress characteristics I liked, and a page of stuff I didn't like. I had initially planned to go simple with some kind of chiffon dress, no train, etc. She looked at what my bridesmaids were wearing and asked me if I was trying to be less fancy then them, haha. She's very straight forward, but she really knew what she was doing. First she had me try on exactly what I was requesting. Then she had me try on much fancier things that worked well with my body type. Then, the last gown she had me try on (she must have known I'd pick it from the start) had all the characteristics I was initially looking for, only fancier. I had 5 more dress appointments that day (she was my first) and after going to the second one I canceled all the others and went back to Vows. Vicky's assistants were all very helpful and her tailor was great as well. I was working my ass off and rapidly losing weight so they even made sure to get my final fitting done during the week leading up to my wedding to make sure it fit right. I had such a great experience with them - I felt like Vicky and her team all really cared about me and making the dress perfect for my wedding day.

Vows Bridal shop in Honolulu had the best dresses I seen from all the other bridal stores in Honolulu. The only down part is the older sales lady is very rude and after you pay your dress, it seems like they don't care. If you would like to be treated with respect and great customer service do not go here. I also got a pair of shoes from them and the shoes did not fit correctly the older sales lady did not let me exchange it. For all the money I spent at the store you would figure they would let me change the shoes, it was barely used and did not use it outside other than shop. My experience at Vows was very stressful and disappointing. I should've listened to the other reviews and stayed cleared of Vows, but like I mentioned, they had the best Bridal dresses. After I made my final payment for wedding dress and bridesmaid dresses, we were told we could only come on the week days due to the fact weekends are reserved only for NEW customers. So it shows they don't care about customers after paid.I can say they have the dresses but be prepared for older saleslady rudeness and very angry personality. When ever I went in, i did felt rushed.Oh and the bridesmaid dresses are very poorly made and at the wedding one of the dresses had spots on it. The bridesmaid with spots on her dress. Another bridesmaid dress ripped at the reception. The younger sales girls were very nice I have to say but as for the older saleslady she seemed like in a rush and irritated. Had the customer service had been better, 5 stars! Loved my dress though a that's all that mattered.

I had no idea what I was looking for when I began searching for wedding dresses. I went to two other stores before ending up at Vows. The previous stores gave little help to me and I felt like finding a dress was going to be very difficult. The opposite scenario occurred at Vows. As soon as I walked in, an associate was happy to help me. And when she had to take care of a previous customer, I was then given to the store owner, Vicky. Wow was she a wealth of knowledge! You could tell that she really new her stuff and she was very willing to take the time out to help find the gown for my wedding. She asked me my price range and what I was looking for, then she proceeded to help pick out some dresses she thought I would like. I ended up finding my beautiful, stunning wedding dress and did not step foot into another store! Vicky took me in with no appointment and treated me like I was the only bride existing in the world. Thank you to Vicky at Vows for helping me to find the perfect dress for me!
