I had a WONDERFUL experience at Ultimate Bride. From the moment I walked in they were warm and friendly and expecting me. I wanted something really architectural and had fallen in love with Ulla-maijie ,UB is the only place in the city to carry them. I had emailed them in advance about the gowns I wanted to see and my price point. So when I got there all the dresses I liked plus some they thought I might like were waiting for me. Kate was my sales person and she was a saint. I had narrowed it down to 2 different Ulla dresses that had very different vibes. I couldn't decide and she let me go way over my time slot trying them on over and over again. I went with my mom and my FMIL and she was so nice to them and really made sure to include them in the process. I actually left with out a dress because I needed to think about it and they were as nice to me leaving as when I came in. I emailed Kate the next day with my choice which is on my bio if you wish to see it :) I can't tell you how wonderful they made buying my dress after purchasing 2 at sample sales and not being in love with either. They made that fairy tale moment come true for me. My dress is truly custom made for me and only me. they measured me in about a hundred different ways so it shouldn't have to be altered a bit. They also will be packaging it specially for me to make the 5 hour plane ride to Mexico with out a wrinkle for free.I also received a sketch of my dress and a swatch of fabric from my actual dress from the designer a couple weeks ago. I just think its the coolest thing in the world. Its the first thing in my scrap book. I cant wait for my dress to arrive It still makes me excited every time I see it!! You just can't get this stuff anywhere else. In response to the other review. I feel the questions about my wedding and the size helped them to find me a more appropriate gown for my wedding and to build a good repor. UB is expensive. But you get what you pay for. You cant go in with a max budget of 3000.00 and expect to find the dress of your dream. You would be much better off going to a store with lower price point dresses. With that said if you have to have that Oscar, or Carolina, ML, Kennith pool or ULLA!! gown this is the place you want to go. They only carry certain brands and cater to that niche much like davids bridal dose for its brides.

They were ineradicable to work with. They helped me get the bridesmaids dresses I wanted and even and extra one 3 months later when they no longer carried them. A+++

I didn't pay for this it was my bachlorette Party so one of my bridesmaids did. We did the pole dancing class which was fun. However we learned about 2 things and then a dance routine (please don't play single lady's around me ever again)instead of more skills. Fine not a huge deal but not what we were expecting. Drinks were $10.00 a piece and most people had 2 or three while we were there (not included in the cost above. We also got the pedicures with our package. When we got out of the class they directed us to the back to the salon where 2 (count them 1..2) girls were waiting to do 12 pedicures. My mom and her best friend got theirs done and when we realized how long it would take we decided to leave and they made us pay for them all anyways. We would have been there for 3 hours getting nails done(Not how anyone wanted to spend the night)Of course there was no manager on duty so we couldn't talk to anyone and my bridesmaid is still trying to work this out with them a week later. I would say go pole dancing have fun...Not here!!
