A Beautiful Bride
I am so happy that I worked with A beautiful Bride (and the Tuxedo portion of their business called "A Formal Affair"). I went in and the absolute dress of my dreams happened to be the floor model from a company that was going out of business. It fit perfectly, and I got it at a steep discount. I know from my cousins wedding that they worked very well for people that also order a dress. I have another friend getting married and they are working with her. She and I both compared dresses with Beautiful Bride and David's Bridal, and HANDS DOWN the quality was at Beautiful Bride, as well as the BEST customer service and MUCH better prices. I was pleased to order all my bridesmaid dresses from them as well. They also picked up and cleaned the dresses after the alterations place was done with them.
Working with them for the Tuxedos was also a really great experience. They set up a beer and chip party for us, had us in at the end of the day, and served us drinks and chips as the guys got their outfits together. The boys also said that the shoes and outfits were very comfortable - especially compared to other Tux shoes and outfits they had worn. The price was very competitive, and again, the service was unbeatable. They picked up the tuxes after the wedding at our venue for no extra charge.
I recommend EVERYONE at least give them a try. It is a locally owned shop, with people who know the business and are very nice to work with. They add a personal touch that made the experience very pleasant and all the staff (especially Gloria) is great to work with.
The costs below include 600 for my dress and about 150 each bridesmaid dress and 145 for the tuxedos.
Awful. I found a very expensive dress at this shop that I really liked, but had just started looking, and wasn't ready to commit. It was the only one in stock, so they recommended that I put down a deposit to "hold" the dress while I kept looking. This seemed reasonable (dumb me). At NO time was I told the deposit was non-refundable. UNTIL I asked for my money back when I found my dress elsewhere. I filed a complaint with the BBB, and a dispute with my CC company (still waiting for that refund Chase!). Terrible experience.
