b. Hughes Bridal Formal
My daughter picked out a beautiful dress for her special wedding day 7 months prior to her wedding. She was measured by bHughes and told to order a size smaller than what she (and I) thought she should order. She questioned the size she was advised to order 4 times but told repeatedly that this was the correct size. this was no small purchase - the dress and accessories were over $7000. When the dress arrived and she tried it on it was so tight that she would have never have been able to sit in it. Karen, the owner, kept saying that she signed off on the size and that if the dress was steamed it would give a little. What a joke!! Karen could not get my daughter and me out of the store fast enough. Thankfully we found a woman who was able to let the dress out enough for it to fit beautifully, but not before Karen ruined what should have been a wonderful occasion - picking up her wedding dress and being excited! My daughter even called Karen and Karen assured her that she would call her back and "make it right". Needless to say, Karen never returned the call but did contact my daughter after her wedding and asked if they could use some of her pictures to post on the bHughes wedding site. When hell freezes over!! I would advise any woman to drive to Atlanta and order your dress somewhere, anywhere other than bHughes!! My daughter also has a friend who ordered her wedding dress from bHughes as well...it has been a nightmare for her friend as well!! Run, don't walk away from bHughes. You will not have a good experience!
first off- the first and only place I looked for my dress. Loved my dress when it is all said and done. Allison was great and super helpful. Karen was excited and was involved in my dress selection process. A few months go by- my dress is in, I need to get my dress altered. The alteration lady's shop is like 110 degrees, air conditioner not working. It was close to closing time for B hughes. I come back down to the shop, I can tell they are annoyed that I'm in the showroom. I didn't get that warm and fuzzy feeling that I once had with them, I feel like they forget who you are. Overall, I wouldn't recommend going there. My dress was pretty, but expensive considering what it was. The customer service for the sale was great, not so much after that.
I loved my dress. They kept me updated on the status. We did have to have some of the groomsman have last minute changes because their tuxes didn't fit But overall good.
I had a horrible experience with b. Hughes, despite the fact that they are supposed to be the best in Nashville. Although Allison and the store's owner did work to make the situation right, I was still astonished at how many things went wrong. One year before my wedding, I purchased a beautiful dress from b. Hughes. 6 months later, after calling to check on the status of the dress, my mother was informed that they had forgotten to order my dress. They rush ordered it at that time, and assured us that everything would be perfect. However, once the dress finally arrived, we had an awful experience with the lady they recommend to do alterations. At 8pm the night before my bridal portraits, I was in their store crying because my dress fit horribly (it was about 6 sizes too big, despite my already having had one fitting and alteration) and the seamstress had also messed up the seams and the stitches. That same day, TWO WEEKS before my wedding, I was at another bridal shop in Nashville trying on dresses to buy off the rack due to concern that my dress from b. Hughes could not be fixed in time. B. Hughes told us that "things like this hardly ever happen to us," but that doesn't matter when it's YOUR wedding and YOU'RE the one being affected! Particularly when I purchased the dress literally one year prior to the wedding date. In the end, b. Hughes was able to get the dress fixed and fitted in time for my wedding, and the owner hand- delivered it to the church on the wedding day. I guess you could say "All's well that ends well," but the stress and drama surrounding this dress was certainly not what I had anticipated when purchasing a bridal gown from such a well-renowned store. Furthermore, b. Hughes never offered to pay for, or even discount, the dress despite all of the difficulties. My dress was fabulous in the end, but I would never recommend b. Hughes to anyone. I had a horrible, although seemingly uniquely bad, experience. Don't take the chance. What kind of bridal shop FORGETS to order a fully-paid bridal gown for 6 months?!? And then messes it up after promising it would be "perfect" in time for bridal portraits?
By far the best selection in Nashville. Gorgeous gowns with superior service. Allison and Karen are amazing!
Very easy to work with and understanding if there are any problems.
Wow, I can't say enough wonderful things about B Hughes and Allison Newby. My daughter's wedding is in April 2011. She had been to Arkansas and tried on dresses but nothing seemed to give her that warm and fuzzy this is it bride feeling. As soon as we walked in to B Hughes we knew this was the shop for us. The store is very inviting and has a very warm atmosphere. We were surrounded with beautiful couture gowns. B Hughes carries only couture. They also have a wonderful bridemaid department upstairs. Allison was so helpful and knowledgable about different styles and what fits the body the best. My daughter narrowed her search down to two dresses and finally decided on a beautiful Vera Wang gown with a rhinestone sash. It is gorgeous. It brought our party to tears. If you want to feel special and be pampered for your special day please try B Hughes. You won't be dissappointed.

The ring my husband got for me was from b. Hughes Bridal Formal , and it was a complete surprise. I didn't know he ordered it, but he told me afterwards. From the ring itself, I would have to say that it is a very beautiful and classy ring, looks very high quality.
Allison was great. I had a very short time line to find a dress. She showed me everything that was available and checked on line for other options. My dress came in on time and she put me in touch with a great alterations lady. Made the wedding happen!
B. Hughes was wonderful! The staff were so helpful and kind and the dresses were all gorgeous and clean!! There was no rush; my mother, sister and I felt welcome and taken care of in their lovely show room. The dresses were well maintained and beautiful- they helped fit the dresses to me so I'd have a good idea as to what they'd look like in my size. The Ramona Kaveza dress that I chose arrived on time and fit me beautifully. Overall, my experience was all I wanted and more! Thank you!
I found the consultant to be extremely helpful on the day I was there. I did feel like she was pushing me to spend a lot more than I was comfortable with. My close friend who is also engaged was practically pushed out of the store after she gave her price range.
My fiancee went in to look at dresses on a whim after passing by. The lady who was working did not seem thrilled that we were 'just browsing', especially after revealing what our budget was for her dress. She actually found a few dresses that she loved, but after feeling less than welcome, we decided to just find the same dress at another shop that would at least be appreciative of our business.
My dress was amazing! I wanted something that I would truly feel like a princess in. The service was excellent - B Hughes carries only the best and I felt beautiful on my wedding day! My bridesmaids looked incredible! B Hughes has an amazing selection of bridesmaids dresses that my girls were actually excited about wearing and could wear again. I would recommend anyone who is looking for something upscale and unique to check out this store.
My experience with b.Hughes was absolutely fantastic. The staff not only helped me throughout the entire process but they made me feel very welcomed and very special. They assisted on helping me and with the help of them I found a gorgeous bridal gown for my wedding and also I found a nice pair of shoes to go with my bridal gown. My gown fitted me just perfectly and it looked really nice. I was happy with all of the help I got from them. They are a very special bridal shop in Nashville.
I had a wonderful experience working with B. Hughes. B. Hughes has a spectacular selection of designer gowns and the prices are reasonable. I planned my wedding from out-of-town and the women at B. Hughes were always flexible in scheduling my fittings and promptly responded to all of my phone calls. I would highly recommend B. Hughes!
Did not purchase my dress here but used thier alternations and loved it!
