I went bridal dress shopping with my mom, sister and dad here a couple of weeks ago. I had just started and this was the first place I looked.
The experience started out really wonderful, but the end ruined it.
The Good:
-The boutique is beautiful
-Connie, my stylist, was warm and helpful and very knowledgeable
The Bad:
-The samples available for sale in my budget, though they were up to 60% off, were in awful condition. There were stains on the bottom of the dresses, make up and yellowing on the inside top of the dresses, rips in the lace, etc
-HIGH PRESSURE SALES TACTICS TO CLOSE THE DEAL: I found a dress I liked. They offer a 20% discount 1st visit incentive. The sample wasn't in great condition, and a new one could be ordered in silk or satin. I preferred silk, but satin was closer to my budget (even with a discount, it would still be +$1K over). I said it was a big purchase and I wasn't comfortable buying then not having shopped anywhere else. Connie understood, but another woman came over--maybe the manager? She asked why I didn't want to buy and offered to keep looking. I explained and said I preferred to come back after searching some more to be sure. Out came the high pressure sales techniques--What do you think you will find anywhere else? I don't know what you are waiting for. The 20% discount is only good today, etc. It got very very uncomfortable. Completely ruined the experience.
I am SO happy I didn't buy here. I went to 6 other beautiful shops, and no other place gave me that pressure. AND I found 2 other dresses in 2 shops VERY similar to the one in Winnie that I liked even better that were 1. within my budget 2. better made and higher quality (both were real silk, and one was hand crafted).
If you find your dress here, great! But if you go and have the experience I did, don't force it. It is too big a purchase and decision to feel bullied into it. There are other shops that make you feel as special and beautiful.

I loved my dress. It was the third dress I tried on. I wish I would have tried more on, but I felt like I was pushed to get it then. That the bridal extrav. discount was too great to pass up. After a 3 month rush fee which was a few hundred and a custom fitting that was a few hundred my dress came out to over $3,000. I figured a custom fitting would include the height since I told her the inches of my heals, apparently not. My family and bridesmaids weren't there when I bought my dress and when it finally came in, they all planned to be there. When I called back to tell them my available day, they said that the manager said no, that it was the Saturday of black Friday and a huge sale day. No one but my sister saw the dress. Which made me super sad. I wanted the support and confirmation that I was making the right choice. That didn't happen. The alterations place they suggested a few doors down had to take in my dress a lot. I did loose weight, but I thought they would be a little more reasonably priced. Winnie said they were amazing they were completely wrong. Another 700 dollars later it fit but the lace was destroyed. I mentioned I wanted to keep the extra lace and material they were cutting off (4 inches from the top and 8 off of the bottom) to add the a christening dress for my future daughters. They handed me 4 small pieces that fit in the palm of my hand- that I am pretty sure came off of someone else's dress; after the lady from the back was rude and told me that I never told them to save the material. Pretty much yelled at me. I told the man at every fitting I had and it was on the order form which I told her, but she didn't seem to care. I wish Winnie never referred me to them. They butchered my dress.

I was ALMOST very disappointed with Winnie Couture but Breanna saved the day for me. I had booked an appointment at a bridal event and the lady said she would personally be taking care of me. I called the day of my appointment just to make sure I had the time right and I was told that I wasn't even on the schedule. That I would need to come in the next week. That wasn't an option since my family had come in from out of town to be there with me. Breanna told me that if I didn't mind the noise from vacuum cleaners, I could come in while the cleaning service was there, which I assume was probably her lunch break as well. Everything was perfect. She was so friendly and sweet. She went out of her way to make us comfortable and she was very professional. I ended up buying the first dress I tried on. It turned out to be a great experience thanks to Breanna.

I only came here because I made an appointment at the Houston Bridal Expo, but this happened to be the place that I found THE dress. After trying on hundreds of dresses, I must say that Winnie's dresses are made with the best materials. I loved how soft the tulle on my dress was and how it was designed to look like the dress was floating across the floor when I walked. I loved my dress, but I was extremely shocked by the price tag. Also, buyer beware that if you are shopping for a dress for a date in less than 6 months, you WILL have to pay the expedited shipping fee that Winnie requires. Another price to tack on was custom sizing. They did pressure me to buy in my first visit with the "first visit discount" that they offered. This left me feeling uneasy. Any bride knows that buying a dress is no easy decision, so it would be nice to not have to worry about extra fees and possibly missing out on a one time discount if you didn't decide RIGHT AWAY.

I was extremely disappointed on how the dress was made, the customer service, and truly the overall experience.

*the dress was extremely tight: my measurements were the exact same and did not change. The fault was from the person who either measured me or the person who made the dress. I was first told that I must have gained weight. Once I was measured they realized that had nothing to do with it.
*the straps were never sized and were leaving red marks on my shoulder because it was cutting my circulation. The sales rep had to take pictures.
*the sequin belt was completely crooked- they couldn't even get that right?
*the back was not even able to button because the lace will tear
*unable to sit down on the dress
*the zipper on the back was not even aligned in the middle

Even the alterations guy from winnie couture said the dress was poorly made. I demanded a discount or refund of some sort. The manager told me they don't do discounts/refunds but they can offer to pay for alterations to be done since I paid for the dress to be custom fitted (extra 1200). After I received the dress from alterations, it actually looked worse. The alterations guy told me its difficult to make a dress bigger than smaller.

After an email written to corporate, 5 separate conversations with the manager, and having to threaten the manager that we will contact her boss, I was allowed to exchange this dress for a "sample try on dress that smelled and was stained." The manager said they were doing a favor for me and didn't want to refund my customize fee (1200). After my mom yelling at the manager and crying, the manager finally gave in and refunded the 1200. The manager told my mom that this was none of her business and she can discuss everything with me (the bride). It had everything to do with my mother since she made the payment!! This was a month long process and 4 weeks out from my wedding day since they were initially late with the delivery.

I found my dream dress at Winnie Couture and I couldn't be happier! I was able to customize a dress by combining the top of one gown with the bottom of another gown which made it truly unique. I came in with a vision and Winnie Couture made it a reality. The service was top notch and the dress came in ahead of schedule. It fit perfectly and didn't require any alterations! I was amazed! I would recommend this salon to anyone as it was truly a princess experience!!
