"I have nothing but wonderful and positive things to say about
! The moment we stepped out of the elevator into the shop I knew this was the" store for me. The staff was friendly and incredibly helpful, especially my bridal consultant
! We had a horrible experience at a shop about an hour before we went to
and they made me forget about that within seconds of being there! I had a rather larger group with me, 6 addition people with me. They were BEYOND accommodating for my family, got us additional chairs, brought them beverages and made sure they were taken care of.
sat down with us and we spoke about what I like and had tried on at other stores. She did this in a very professional manner and really cared about what I wanted and was looking for. She asked my mother and I what our budget and was cautious of this while we picked out dresses. Her and I walked around the store and picked out dresses that I was interested in, if it was over our budget, she would let me know right then and let me make the decision if I still wanted to try it on. Their dresses are beyond amazing, nicely made but reasonably priced as well!
actually pulled the dress that I fell in love with! She knew what I wanted and went right to it. She didn’t make me feel like I had to try on a bunch of dress that I didn’t like. It was a huge relief for me working with her; she made sure I knew that she wanted me to find my perfect dress. The moment I put the dress on I knew it was mine! She picked out an amazing belt to go with it and “jacked me up”. It was such a wonderful feeling standing there in that dress. I had such a great experience at
and I owe that to
. I will, and already have, recommend them to everyone. I can’t wait to go back and put the dress of my dreams back on! Thank you again

"In June we had a wonderful young lady that helped us find the perfect dress for my daughter and the
/hair piece that would go with the dress." When we ordered the dress back in June we were told that the dress would be in by the end of the year. I has since came in and we went to try it on and had another wonderful experience with a young lady that does the alterations. We opted to wait a few months to have the alterations done, but were to we could come in any time to try the dress on and see it with family. So far our experience has been wonderful. Would highly recommend them to all brides.
, who I understand is in her 80s still comes to the shop every day and we saw her each time we were there.

Bridal Shop reviews in Virginia Beach

please forgive me, this review
is way overdue. I should have written it months ago but time got away from me. I
am not usually a person that enjoys shopping all day, so to say the least going
shopping for a wedding dress was not something I was looking forward to. After
going through almost all the shops in

. He spent the whole afternoon with me the first
day and made my dress come off flawlessly. I was getting discouraged before
Virginia Beach Dress Shops Provider Name Locked
because I wanted to add a little color my wedding dress and none of the
other wedding shops was willing to think outside the box and help me. I wanted
a white wedding dress with tangerine color underneath (essentially an tangerine/orange
ombre blending into the base of the wedding dress). This small amount of color
would only been seen under the dress when I walked, and was further accented by
colored lacing on the corset. We picked out a dress and designed it exactly the
way I wanted, with all the color and class of a princess wedding dress.

got excited, and was the only designer who was willing, motivated, excited, and
encouraging to help add some color to my wedding. Most designers were unable to
see how a white dress could be enhanced with a little color and couldn't see my
vision. I am forever grateful for him making my special day possible.

These people were absolutely horrible. We purchased 3 different services from this company; tuxedo rental, photo booth rental, and wedding photographers.
The tuxedos were originally measured wrong, so when the groomsmen went to pick them up a couple days before the wedding they had to be reordered!! With no guarantee that they would be ready for the wedding!! When they were picked up, they had holes in them, stains and chemical burns. The shoes weren't any better either.
The photo booth they rented us for the reception broke in less than an hour.
The photographer was pleasant; however, the pictures were horrible. And we enlisted the service of 2 photographers. The original "link" of pictures they sent me barely had any pictures on it of before and during. So when I emailed and asked if there were more pictures they told me that they were "cut" and they would send me the rough photos. They were awful!!!
And the link they sent me expires 30 days after they send it and now the pictures are uploaded onto pictage so you can buy them individually. I'm sorry; I thought the package I paid for included pictures?? Why do I have to purchase them again??
I would never use this company again and I would dissuade anyone else from ever using them.

Weeks before her wedding my daughter and I began the process of shopping for her dress. Based on Yelp, Knot and other reviews this was the first shop we went to. My daughter fell in love with her dress so it was the last shop we went to. I went into the shop with unrealistic expectations that I would be able to get the dress she wanted for $500 or less. While this shop did have dresses for $500 or less there were not too many choices at that price point. The lady shop owner was very nice, caring and understanding. She offered to do a bit of tailoring if we should need it but was about to leave on an international vacation so we used someone else for
minor adjustments. We took the dress with us that day. We later discovered the dress was a good bargain, even at $1,275. I had many compliments about my daughter's appearance; her dress definitely contributed to her beauty and radiance.

I arrived to the appointment 30 minutes early, and was permitted to browse around. I was not notified of their "no picture" policy and was taking pictures of the tags on the dresses I liked so it would help the consultant find the dresses I liked. I was scolded by a lady when she noticed, I tried to explain I wasn't taking pictures of the dresses, but it was pointless. Several minutes AFTER my 6:00 appointment was supposed to start, the same "lady" approached me with 5 tags I could place on dresses that I wanted to try on. I asked if I could try more than 5, she said no. Pretty odd considering I just went to

's Bridal and was treated fantastically. They provided a one-on-one consultant, undergarments, and options.

was the EXACT opposite. After getting the dresses, I was told to go into the dressing room and take off my clothes. This is inappropriate and not necessary. I explained this to the lady, and she made rude modest jokes to me. She was quick to tell me the flaws in my body and why things did not look good. Last time I checked, this was my place, not hers. I could tell my bridesmaid was beginning to notice how mad I was and she was offended as well. We tried on the second dress, which I loved. She could tell. She began hustling and bullying me. She told me I wasn't going to try on the other three dresses, because it wasn't necessary. They wouldn't look good on a size 10. Rude. Then, she proceeded to tell me to LIE the next time I come in, pretend like I only tried on two dresses so I could get a 15% first appointment discount. I wanted to try on all of my dresses, she wouldn't allow that. I wanted to do things above the board, she insisted a lie when I come in next. All for 15% off!!! I told her I didn't feel comfortable, but she went on and on so I just agreed to end the appointment. We requested a manager on our way out. We explained the intense unprofessional experience and the manager assured us this is not a reflection on their shop. This is hard to believe based on all of the negative reviews they have. Anyways, she gave us her name and a phone number to call so we could set up an appointment when the lady wasn't working. So, I would have to covertly and strategically plan my next visit to avoid the lady who was trying to hustle me? Insane. I will never go back.

When I returned to the store the following day, the staff was rude, unprofessional and bullied me. I didn't deserve the abuse I received. No attempt was made to make it right. I wanted to buy from a local retailer. Never Again.

went out of his way and gave more than 100% in his choice of location and quality of his pictures. We asked for pictures in two locations and he accommodated even though it was really hot on the beach. He was able to capture the best of the family even dealing with 6 adults and 3 children.

was very professional and did an awesome job.

What I like about him is he took a lot of candid shots of my grandchildren and they came out great!!!

He also choose great outdoor backgrounds and we are so pleased with the work he did.

When I need more photography done

I had the dress shipped to my home. I went in several weeks before the wedding to have it altered. The staff member told me that I could come back right before the wedding to have it steamed, which I thought was very nice. I went to get it steamed, and when I came back to pick it up, my dress had been misplaced. Apparently they had lost my dress, and had put it back on the rack with a security tag. They gave me a dress and said it was mine. When I tried it on at home, I knew there was no way it was my dress that had been altered. It didn't fit right anywhere. I thought it was deceitful that they had told me that this was my dress when clearly it was not, especially given that it had had a security tag attached to it. They re-did the second gown, but by then I had spent so much extra time dealing with this. I have dealt with other

locations and had good experiences, and the ladies at this store were polite enough, but I felt that they had pulled one over on me. I will not be using this particular location in the future.
