This is a must for gals with short engagements or even if you have a long one. I went here because they had affordable dresses and samples available. All the girls were great. I worked with Kiera and she was helpful in suggesting styles and ideas, as I was the girl with no clue when I started shopping. She knew the stock well and she could take clues from how I felt about certain aspects of dresses to guide me in the right direction. She let me try on a ton of dresses, some a couple of times, and I got lucky. I found one I loved, was a sample in my size, and well within the budget. Kiera was not pushy and let me think it over. She even drew the two dresses I liked most on the back of her business card, included the designer names, color, sizes, and pricing for new vs. sample dresses.

I am going in for my first alterations consultation this Saturday and am working with Susie. She's been really accommodating, letting me store my dress at the store, and generally just really pleasant when I've spoken with her on the phone.

I highly recommend this place. They are nice and everything is under $3,500, with plenty of dresses to choose from. Also, if you buy a dress here, they also give you a 15% discount on all accessories, which doubles to 30% during the month of December.

I was referred here by two of my coworkers who also bought their dresses here. Wonderful experience from start to finish! Decent selection of dresses at a reasonable price. Scarlet was my consultant and could not have been nicer or more professional. The owner is very hands on and professional as well. I also purchased my veil and earrings here at their big sale in December. I ordered my dress and it arrived early within FIVE weeks!

I can't say enough great things about this shop--having been to a few other big stores that felt less personal and very rushed, this place was a breath of fresh air. For your appointment, you get the whole showroom to yourself, which was so nice and very fun. The champagne didn't hurt either! I bought my dress here on the spot and am so glad I did. The tailoring department (upstairs) is also wonderful and did such a great job getting the perfect fit. My mom even ended up having her dress altered there with me. A very pleasant experience, great staff, and beautiful dresses!

Amazing! I couldn't have done it without them. After deciding 3 weeks before my wedding that I hated my dress, Weddings 826 squeezed me in, helped me find the most perfect dress off the rack and Maggie was able to alter in 2 weeks! I got so many compliments on my dress and I couldn't have been happier. The staff at Weddings 826 was so sweet and accommodating. Love them and would recommend to any bride!

As a disclaimer, I had already purchased my wedding dress prior to visiting Weddings 826...

I've been all over this city looking for wedding accessories, specifically earrings, a birdcage veil, and a hair accessory. This place has a large supply of hair accessories and earrings, most at very reasonable prices compared to other bridal stores. They don't have as many birdcage veils, but the few they have were worth the visit. I ended up purchasing all 3 items I came in for and was happy to check those items off the list! The staff was welcoming and let me take my time trying everything on several times. Would definitely recommend coming in here for your bridal accessories!

I purchased my dress and did my alterations at Weddings 826 and really loved my gown and my experience. The store is both classy and warm and inviting, and the service was excellent every time I visited. If your dress is available in store, you can purchase the sample at a small discount and take it home that day. I also bought a headband and a belt there at a double discount (one discount for buying my dress there, and one that they offer two months out of the year).

Rachel and the rest of the alterations team were super easy to work with, and were very knowledgable and communicative. I always left my appointments feeling like all of my questions had been answered and confident that they would do a great job. They scheduled an extra appointment for me to make sure the fit on my dress was perfect (it was) and told me I could call them on my wedding day if there was a dress emergency (there wasn't). The whole process with Weddings 826 was positive and stress free, and I highly recommend their services!
