I loved working with Wishing Well! The staff members were great and it's nice that it's still a family business thats been around for decades. When I went shopping there it was later at night (they have later night hours during the week which is great for anyone that works a 9-5 job) and they did ask us if we needed help and I mentioned some of the styles I was interested in and the woman brought my mom and I right to the area with that style. And with the variety and designers there it was really easy for me to find my dress. And every time I had to go back for alterations and even once when I had family in town they had no problem pulling the dress (which was kept there for free for about 2 years) so I could try it on for them.

The only problems I had was the price range for bridesmaid dresses were pretty expensive and there were no cheaper options (everything was $200+). But it was nice that if you can afford it and you buy your wedding dress there the bridesmaid get a small discount on their dress. Also, if you're going shopping on weekend make an appointment especially if you want a staff member to help you the whole time as they do get pretty busy (but it's the same for any shop).

I cannot say enough good things about Wishing Well! My mom and I went to several other bridal shops before ending up at Wishing Well; the sales people at all of the other bridal shops were very pushy and hovered over us the whole time! I don't know about you but I hate that!

From the second we walked in Wishing Well I knew it was different. Maria was friendly and Told us to walk around and see if there was anything I liked. As I started to find dresses she would come over and take them for me and put them in the dressing room but never pressured me in one way or another. She helped me in and out of probably 10 dresses before I finally found the one. She was patient and so easy to talk to!

She ordered the dress and told me that it would be in in six months, it showed up even earlier than expected! Although she did not pressure me to she told me that they had a in-store seamstress, Doreen.

I call Doreen and we scheduled three appointments one every month leading up to my wedding. Doreen was just as friendly as Maria and just as easy to talk to! My mom, mother-in-law and bridesmaids loved her! She was very patient with my indeciveness and helped me change my dress to be exactly what I wanted it to be!

She gave several of my bridesmaids bustle lessons multiple times! She even has to schedule a 4th appointment 2 weeks before the wedding because I had lost weight (nerves)! It was crunch time and she didn't bat an eyelash!!!

My dress turned out perfect and I received so many compliments!!!

Wishing Well is definitely not as fancy as some bridal shops out there but its filled with amazing people who really want your day to be perfect!!!

I have been to a few wedding dress places and none of them compare to the service you will receive at Wishing Well Bridal! One great thing I loved about this place was not only the prices, but the size variations! They honestly can fit any body type out there, which is hard to say for other wedding dress places. I purchased my wedding dress and tiara from here and I cannot say enough great things about it! The seamstress there was very flexible and knowledgeable. One small hiccup was with my dress. There was a small sewing needle near the back side of my dress that one of my bridesmaid luckily found. Besides that one thing, I cannot be happier with how everything turned out.

** Pricing based on dress, alterations and pressing

Phyllis was the seamstress at Wishing Well Bridal who did all of my alterations for my wedding dress, and I have to say, she is amazing. She was so helpful from day one - from helping me pick out a belt for the dress to adding material to the dress to make sure it wasn't so itchy on my skin. She is a very talented seamstress and also a genuinely warm and caring person. I would recommend her to anyone looking to get alterations - I think she is the best! Thanks so much Phyllis - and you were right, we had a perfect wedding day!

My entire experience with Wishing Well Bridal was wonderful. The staff is very friendly, accommodating, and patient. My wedding dress was gorgeous, very well-made, and reasonably priced. Doreen did an impeccable job with the alterations, and Maria did a beautiful job on the beading on the top half of my dress. I also found dresses for my maid of honor, bridesmaid, flower girl, friend who was our vocalist for the mass, mom, and grandma. Everything was perfect. Highly recommended!

My mom brought me here because it's where she bought her dress. The staff is helpful but not pushy and appointments are not necessary. Although the dresses are priced a little at the high end, basic alterations are included in the price. The seamstress, Doreen, is absolutely amazing. She took an already amazing dress and it absolutely perfect.

The Wishing Well Bridal team was absolutely amazing during my dress search and alteration process. I originally met the team when I looked for my prom dress so they were the first dress shop that I went to when I got engaged. They have a great selection with diverse styles, colors and fabrics. I visited over 10 bridal stores, tried on over 60 dresses before selecting the Hannah dress by Maggie Sottero. This was just the beginning! After the dress came in, I had several fittings with Doreen who was amazing. My mom and I wanted to remove a couple layers from the dress and several of the appliques, as a result, had to be moved in addition to having the dress trimmed and all the lace detail at the bottom of the dress removed and sewn back on. It was scary to see several key aspects of the dress being removed, but Doreen did an amazing job putting them all back together, tailoring the dress like a glove, and Maria was able to fix all the beading work on the belt and appliques to make them look perfect. Tricia also helped my mom and I select a perfect veil from Symphony to complement the dress. I felt like a princess on the day of my wedding and it is in large part due to the special ladies at the Wishing Well Bridal store. I would highly recommend them to any future bride!

I can't stress enough how great my experience has been at the wishing well! The minute I walked thru the door I was greeted and shown what section to look in! Found my dream dress at a great price! We also went back for my mothers dress which is amazing and the bridesmaids dresses as well! They do not pressure you at all and it was a great laid back experience! I highly recommend going to the wishing well to find your dream dress!

Wishing Well was my first and final stop on my hunt for my dress. They were very patient and let me try on as many dresses as I wanted without getting huffy (and I tried on a lot). Basic alterations are included and Doreen was wonderful in getting my dress to fit perfectly!
