Loved working with Tess! She did a fantastic job fitting my dress. I had purchased it out of state and was worried about finding someone who could work with the all lace dress and she did an amazing job. The alteration costs were high but the amount of work needed was also large so I can't say it was overpriced. She also created the world's easiest bustle which my friends greatly appreciated. There was a small issue I found with my dress after picking it up 2 days before the wedding and it was fixed immediately after bringing it in. All of the staff were extremely helpful and friendly!

So friendly and accommodating. The owner Tess and entire staff are fantastic. We had such a lovely experience in getting the bridesmaids dresses and mother of the bride dress there. Did such a wonderful job in ordering, delivery and alterations. Great place to go for everything (wedding dresses, bridesmaids dresses, tuxes and homecoming and prom.) Lovely experience. Thanks Frankie

0/5 across the board for a horrible piss poor service on more than one account. I went off of other reviews and thought what the heck! Horrible idea I've regretted ever since!!
I was in a wedding where we got our BM dresses from. more than half the girls had problems! One and a strange open part that had threads dangling from it by her neck and another one is a size 4 and received a 14!! They than charged another 160$ or so to recut said dress. Than the kicker is, is that same girl is in my wedding, same thing happened! Size 14 dress ordered for a size 4 girl! When they called to ask management they put the blame on her claiming "she signed for it" even though they measured her and wrote it down CORRECTLY. Highly unprofessional, and rude.

The dresses for my wedding also came 3 weeks later than I was told. Claiming that the distributor for the dresses are off for 4th of July. They liked to say that since the wedding isn't till September they've got plenty of time and pushed that order back.

This is the perfect place to go for rush orders since that's all they want to do for buisnesd! The manager tries to be nice but complains about her home life, using that as an excuse for why stuff isn't done - and it's always the customers fault. Never had such a bad experience. I've been telling everyone to stay away.

Tess is a complete joy to work with. She took my dress and made it something truly unique, which was what I wanted! She was even able to dye some chiffon to perfectly match my dress (it was pink!). Everything Tess did for me was perfect!

I found my wedding gown and bridesmaid dresses at Weddings by Tess after spending time in at least 3 other wedding shops. Tess is amazing and everyone there is very helpful. It really felt like they knew you and wanted your wedding day to be amazing. The selection is great and everything was very high quality. Tess does all the alterations and did a wonderful job on all of our dresses.

I had been to a lot of Bridal shops before I found Tess. I had been stressed out with finding the right gown for me. She made it fun, easy and stress free. Everyone in the store knew I found the gown for me when I put it on. I had a wonderful experience and absolutely love my dress.

First off Weddings by Tess was phenomonal! They had an excellent selection of dresses & the staff is great! They are all very helpful & accomodating :) when you walk in you are greeted like family!

I ended up buying my dress off the rack seeing as Tess had owned the sample for 4 years I believe she said, I couldn't believe the quality. It was GORGEOUS...I had to have it! It fit like a glove, although I ended up needing alterations it was pretty minimal.

We got my mom's dress there & ALL 5 BMaids dresses. They were a great price & came in only a week after expected. When I picked up the maids dresses it was nice they were all labeled whose was whose, etc.

My mom ended up being on an anxiety med that made her gain about 20 lbs so when her dress came in it didn't fit. Tess said, "NO PROBLEM HONEY!!! Let's find something else!" Considering my mom hadn't done any alterations to her dress she said that she could still sell it off the floor no big deal, my mom was THRILLED! My mom's original dress was $160, and the new one was $140/$150 I think and she didn't make her pay anything which was AMAZING & my mom felt so much more confident which was priceless!!

Tess was great but she said a lot of things & then the follow up was kind of lacking...I felt like I had to keep reminding her of our conversations...I feel like maybe she takes on too many things which I understand it can be hard not to when you are the shop owner.

It's just I was a bit frustrated that on my FINAL fitting my dress wasn't ready, the boob cups weren't taken out yet (although my alterations were paid for in full at least 2 months earlier) it wasn't pressed/steamed, & the eye hook on the back still hadn't been replaced (it was missing when I bought it at least 6 months earlier)....it wasn't a big deal just kind of an annoyance that when I walked in a half hour early, I said 'thanks for changing my appt so my MOH could come with' & she was like, "yeah I planned on going home at noon, but SOMEBODY had to change their appt..." -I think she was kidding only partially but it was still kinda rude I thought, but I ignored it.

Then when I got into the room with my dress I was excited to see how it would look with everything done & it wasn't (7days before my wedding). I wanted to see how it looked without the boob cups & they were still in there, when I asked about it she said, "no we weren't doing that" & I said yes we were I have my receipts if you want to see them but she had crossed them off on the receipt bc she said she wouldn't charge be for them, so there was just a slight mixup on the documentation.

I said that I needed the finishing touches down because I was planning on taking the dress with me that day. I live in IOWA, so there was no way I was going to be driving up an additional time throughout the week before the big day to pick it up. She reluctantly said ok that I should try it on & make sure nothing else needed to be done, afterwards we left for about a half hour & she said she'd finish everything. She ripped out the boob cups & put in regular bra cups but just sewed them on top it was kind of tacky & I had no idea if they were in the right spot or not....It was bagged up nicely & cleaned, the re-beadwork was pretty good but all in all it was rushed.

I also said I was going to take my mom's dress home that day, & that wasn't steamed...not a big deal.

I also asked to see my veil because I ordered it the day I bought my dress but forgot to try it on at my first fitting, so I asked to see it at my 2nd. & it was completely wrong :( such a bummer right? No prob they said they'd re order it, & so they did. The week before my 3rd fitting I called up and said I know this sounds silly but can someone take it out of the packaging to ensure it is the correct one because if I waited until my final fitting to see it and it was wrong there wouldn't be time to get another ordered...they said that Tess ordered two and I could pick which one I wanted!!! YAY! :)

When I tried it on @ my last fitting, they were both wrong...talk about ill luck right? Well that's ok Tess had one in the back & was able to send it with me luckily!!!!!

All in all, I got a FABULOUS dress @ a fraction of the cost of me buying it brand new, I never had to wait for it to come in. I could stop in to try it on WHENEVER I wanted, the girls were terrific I just think Tess has too many things on her plate!!! A good & bad thing to have!! :)

If I were to do it again, I'd buy it but have alterations done elsewhere, I didn't like that I had to keep double checking on everything to ensure it was done, plus I should have done it closer to where I lived, but that's my own fault.

Thanks for everything, my dress turned out beautiful!

Tessie is absolutely amazing. She does gorgeous work and she has a great work ethic. She is dedicated to making sure that you have the dress of your dreams and she is fantastic to work with. I have gone there for all of my prom/event dresses and my wedding dress and bridesmaid dresses. The dresses were incredible and I know I'll be going back to her next time I need anything formal.

My family has had the worst experiences with this store. The owner is very nice, but some of the workers and gown suppliers are no good.

My MIL's dress came in the wrong size. My mother's MOB dress was discontinued. We found out a week later and had to pick out a different dress. My mother's rehearsal dinner dress came in the wrong color. The manufacturer no longer made the color she picked out.

Do not get alterations there! The lady who does them only knows one kind of bustle! She is also really rough with the dresses when she brings them home to work on them. I scheduled my alterations appointment month in advance, but a week before they called me to try to reschedule b/c the alterations lady was busy with prom. If they were a good bridal shop they wouldn't bump the already scheduled appointments for new ones. She also didn't want to put in the bustle I wanted b/c "she didn't have time." I scheduled so far in advance! I don't think I should have been penalized for them overbooking appointments.

The do not have very many bridal gowns to try on.

I would not recommend them to anyone!!!

I came to this page to see the reviews after my own experiences with Tess' Bridal shop. I could not agree more with the reviews regarding the alterations and the level or lack of professionalism experienced here. I have been involved in 5 weddings along with my own. I have never had alterations performed in this manner. The concerns were raised with the shop and were met with defensive banter immediately. Upon receiving this kind of service from an employee the concerns were brought to the owner who brushed the concern over by ignoring the concern. Now, the women in the shop are nice enough however nice does not cut it when the gowns don't fit properly and are misaligned. They have no idea how to handle this type of "conflict" if that is what you'd call botched alterations. There was no effort to resolve the situation. I too was left to figure things out. Now, in looking at the other entries on this page it appears some other women received "great" service. I think those women were just lucky. When you get married you want a shop who takes care of you - checks to see if the gowns are fitting properly - sees if you are happy with the fit and listens to your concerns. If you want things to run smoothly I would skip this shop all together.

I had my dress altered at Tess's although I didn't purchase it there. We also had my mom's dress and a few of the bridesmaid's dresses altered there as well. Tess was extrmemly friendly and accommodating. I live on the East Coast and could only come in on a few weekends for fittings, and Tess was 100% accommodating to us. At one point she even did a same-day alteration so that I could see the results before I flew home. I thought the results looked great, but I gave her a 4.5 instead of a 5 because the lady who did my gown preservation said some mistakes had been made in the alterations (whatever it was, I didn't notice it). It definitely wasn't a cheap place, though--I expected my alterations to be expensive, but my mom's were a lot more than I thought it they would be. Overall, I thought she did a great job. I couldn't believe the level of personal attention and service we received.

We had a terrible experience at Weddings by Tess. They documented the incorrect tux information on at least 2 separate occasions - which led to the wrong outfit to be ordered 2 days before our wedding. Even at the point in which the mistake was realized (when we were trying on the tuxes), little was done to correct the situation. I, the customer, was the one problem solving. It ended up as unneeded stress on a very important day. We thought that by attending a small, local business we would receive exceptional service - that was not the case. Even after telling the owner about how dissatisfied we were with their service, we did not receive any compensation for the repeated errors they made. Overall, we would NOT recommend this business to anyone else. We were extremely disappointed.

Even at the point in which the mistake was realized (when we were trying on the tuxes), little was done to correct the situation. I, the customer, was the one problem solving. It ended up as unneeded stress on a very important day. We thought that by attending a small, local business we would receive exceptional service - that was not the case. Even after telling the owner about how dissatisfied we were with their service, we did not receive any compensation for the repeated errors they made. Overall, we would NOT recommend this business to anyone else. We were extremely disappointed. Read less

Tess gave her personal attention to me every time I was in the store; even when her daughter was getting married three weeks before me she found time to help me out personally! She altered my dress, was at every fitting, and did a fabulous job. Her personal, friendly, professional service was wonderful and I would highly reccomend her over any wedding chain store! Her business is unbeatable! Her prices were also very fair. :)

Tess altered my gown, a 6,000 silk gown with extensive beadwork, and she did so flawlessly. She added bustles and cups and even moved the seams of the dress. I was very happy with the results, and Tess herself is a joy to work with - she is playful and positive and keeps the focus on you. She also did my sisters dress for a very reasonable rate. I bought shoes from her as well, and they were dyed to match perfectly - couldn't say a bad thing about her, and would definitely and highly recommend.

OK job on alterations... I got my dress the morning of my wedding and it was covered in little bits of string from other alterations. My dress was not steamed or cleaned up before I had to go and get it. I had to take my dress to another alteration person... (the gal who did all my bridesmaids dresses) to have it cleaned up and pressed.
