Best local shop in Olympia! I purchased my wedding gown from them and was so pleased with there customer service and attentiveness that I came back to purchase six bridesmaids dresses. The ladies that work there are very responsive to any questions or concerns myself or bridal party had. Overall I was extremely pleased to have chosen a great shop that made my planning stress free.

Amy is phenomenal! This place is magic. I went in just to try on a dress I had seen online - it was a little disappointing on, but Amy brought me another dress...one she said she thought I'd like. It. Was. Perfection. I did not intend to purchase my dress that day, but she found "the" dress for me, just like that. She's done this for two of my other friends since. I adore this place and the people who run it. Highly recommended.

I worked with Amy this week and was very very pleased with my visit! I was in town on vacation and needed to dress shop for my Matron of Honor as well as to start looking at wedding dresses. Not only did I walk away with the perfect wedding dress but also found a great dress for my Matron of Honor. I would recommend this location to all of my friends in the area getting married. Great job ladies. and thanks again Amy

Angie and her staff are amazing! Can't thank Angie and Aimee Cathers enough! Also Amy and Missy assisting with the Bridesmaid dresses. Easy simple and they know their business. PLEASE PLEASE I can't stress enough to PLEASE make and appointment first and even though you might go in what you have in mind on what you want? Yes try on similar dresses and what they bring in to you will want what they pick out. I started crying! This is my first wedding ever I am 53 years old and my mother passed away 5 years ago of Colon Cancer though it was like these ladies became and are like family to me. Trust them! It was a moment in my life I looked forward to all my life and a very AMAZING moment. Thank you again Angie and your Lovely Ladies.

I'm shocked that the reviews on here are so positive when they are so thoroughly negative on another review site that I did not happen to check until after my visit. Had I read them, I wouldn't be so surprised at the poor quality of service I received during my visit.

I booked my appointment and brought two of my bridesmaids in to try on dresses; we met with a consultant who was very enthusiastic and helpful, promising to show us dresses at different price points. She invited us to pick out dresses to try on and set up the room for us. After my bridesmaids tried on the first two dresses, during which the consultant was helpful enough, she disappeared. On top of that, a large party of loud women came in to help a bride pick out a dress. There was already a bride and my bridesmaids trying on a dress in that tiny area. Now, four women had to compete for not enough room and it was definitely not a polite environment. It was like the consultants just stood back and let chaos take hold of the shop.

For the rest of the appointment, the consultant was barely around and she certainly never showed us the dresses she mentioned. It's like they didn't even care if they made a sale at all. When we were ready to leave, the consultant asked if I had any questions, so I asked if our favorite dress came in a long style. She asked another consultant and they decided that it did not. Nobody looked it up, they just decided. I found out through the designer's website that they do, in fact, carry the same style in a long version.
Needless to say, I'm not returning to purchase dresses at that shop and I will never recommend this shop to anyone. I'd love to give money to local businesses, but I'd gladly take the good service of a chain retailer over what I experienced from Weddings with Joy.

Like many brides, long before meeting Mr. Right, I'd envisioned exactly what my wedding dress would look like - glamorous, sexy, chic. Unfortunately, when the time came to go dress shopping, NOTHING I tried on looked good on me. I am 36 years old, 5'2" and 160 pounds with a flat chest and big booty. Despite assistance from employees at several local dress shops, each time I tried on dresses I ended up leaving disappointed. All around me were people gushing at size 2 twenty-somethings with huge boobs in princess dresses. I didn't get that. I felt fat, ugly, and old despite the fact I KNOW I am none of those. Discouraged, I ended up purchasing the first dress I DIDN'T look horrible in and tried to make myself love it. Fast forward several months to the Tacoma Wedding Show. I was only going to scope out photographers, however the first booth I passed happened to be Weddings With Joy. While casually browsing the clearance racks, I happened to mention my dilemma to one of the employees manning the booth (who's name unfortunately I do not remember). Within seconds, she'd pulled a dress and had me in a makeshift dressing room trying on "THE ONE"! Not only did it fit perfectly (well, with the addition of some chicken cutlets in the boob region), it was everything I'd dreamed of - glamorous, chic, sexy, AGE APPROPRIATE. I stepped out to the mirror in the open area and for the first time since I'd been engaged, I heard "Oooohs!" and "Ahhhs!" from total strangers directed at ME! Not only was the dress perfect in appearance, it was 15% off the already reduced clearance price! When asked HOW she'd done it, the employee shrugged and responded, "I've been in the business for a long time, I guess it's just experience.". I, however, think it was MAGIC!

I bought my wedding dress through Weddings with Joy. I was able to buy my dress off the rack. They were willing to allow me to try on a number of dress during my visit. Make sure to make an appointment. They are fairly busy so I would recommend trying to go during the week if possible. I think I went on a Wednesday or Thursday late afternoon and I was the only one there. The big problem I had was after I picked my dress and it was put aside for me, I came back to get it and there was lipstick inside of it. They had allowed someone else to try on my dress. It would be one thing if I had picked it out and was ordering a brand new one OR it would be different if I had just mentally decided on the dress and it was not placed aside. This was not the case though-we had them put it aside, I had put money down, and I was buying it off the rack. I just felt like it was inconsiderate to allow someone to try on my dress and get lipstick on it. They did not even offer to spot clean it or anything. They made up an excuse about me not seeing it the first time I tried it on (I would have seen it, trust me. Bright red lips inside the dress!) I have had friends who have had huge issues with this store but my visit and purchase was fine.
