I was very satisfied with Alissa Bridal Salon in Brooklyn, NY. It was within the local area. They have a huge selection of dresses. Thank you for your service.
Mrs. Erika A....
I absolutely loved my experience with Allisa's Bridal. I was a little bit disappointed with their seamstress though.
Miriam helped me from start to finish and she was exceptional. She really listened to what I was looking for in a dress. I myself wasn't even sure exactly what dress I wanted... but the 3rd!!! dress she picked for me to try on was a unanimous WIN for my mom, my grandmother and myself. I should have gone there first! One of my best friends also found her dream dress there. Everyone there was very helpful and patient. Brian even emailed me the photo of the dress so I could share it with my sister and bridesmaid. I was on a very tight timeframe - less than 4 months until wedding day and my dress came even a week early. With Miriam saying she can't promise BUT will do everything to have my dress arrive on time somehow made me calm and not nervous at all. I have to say I absolutely LOVED, loved, loved my DRESS! It was from San Patrick 2009 collection.
The seamstress was not bad, don't get me wrong. She trimmed the dress very good. The issue was that the cups she put in for me so I wouldn't have to wear a bra did not sit well at all. They were far from my chest and created space between the skin and the dress itself. I'm a very easy going bride and just took the dress since I had to leave the store. I had my mom's friend take the cups out and just pinch the dress at the sides, it only took her 20 min and made the dress pop! I ended up wearing a push up bra anyway. so technically, the price for alterations was not worth it. If you have a seamstress you know, just use her, if not, don't worry, you can use the seamstress from the store, just be very specific what you want and be firm on the fittings with the seamstress, don't settle for anything less than perfect for your wedding day :)
Even with this little altercation, I am still very happy with the store, They have very beautiful adn unique dresses. So I would definitely recommend it!
Although I loved my wedding dress & would definitely choose it again, I was a little disappointed with the fact that the seamstress wouldn't make it tighter. A week before my wedding, the dress fir me perfectly. The day of my wedding, it kept falling down. When I asked the seamstress to make it tighter she said no it's fine.
Other than that, everyone was phenomenal.
