Best Bridal shop in SLC! – They were so amazing at the Bridal shop! I had been to a couple bridal shops before this one and my experiences were very bad from the ones before. The staff are fantastic at what they do, very friendly, honest and they didnt act like they were better then me like a lot of other shops i had been to. the girls who worked there were always happy to be there and were always up for helping. my little brother had to come with me and my mom every dress fitting at they were so nice about it. they had given me tons of attention. it was sad to walk away with my dress all done because i had made some great friendships there. I had worked with Elise most of the time and she was a angle to work with me. She was the one who helped me find the dress and was there when i fell in love with it. I had sleeves added on and they were perfect. Thank you brideshop.
you don't get what you pay for – I had a wedding nightmare! I bought a $1300 Pronovias dress and received a $600 Atelier Diagonal dress instead, they said that because they are under new management there is nothing that they can do! My problem is yet to be resolved.
I'm sorry to hear you had such problems with your dress... we had not yet purchased the store (October of 2011) and will, going forward work tirelessly to make sure such things do not happen to any of our Brides.
Amazing dresses Amazing service simply amazing!!! – From start to finish I loved this shop!!! Kathy was professional, knowlegable and an over all great help in helping me pick out the perfect dresses!! I got a ton of attention and they made me feel like a princess! No one has dresses as beautiful as them ( and believe me I went everywhere!! I bought two dresses one for the ceremony and one for the reception. The dresses arrived on time, my alterations were done when they promised and I could not have been happier!!! Yurma made me look and feel like a movie star!! My wedding was at La Caille this past October and the entire staff at The Brides's Shop helped to make it a perfectly beautiful day! The Brides' Shop should be hailed as Salt Lake's premire Bridal salons.
I Wouldn't Go Anywhere Else – I have nothing bad to say about this store. They provided the attire for my entire wedding party. My dress was absolutely beautiful. I was losing weight and had to come in for several fittings. My dress was always ready when promised and made me absolutely beautiful on my wedding day. Kathy is one of the sweetest ladies I have ever had the pleasure of meeting, and her staff is nothing short of excellent. I had one bridesmaid from out of town, and another who was difficult to fit and had to have some alterations on her dress. Again the alterations were impeccable and the staff was willing to work around my schedule to make sure everyone was looking their best on my special day. Aside from the bridal party, I was able to order mothers dresses, dresses for my grandmothers and all the tuxes. In total there were dresses for 15 women (including me), plus shoes, jewelry and other accessories. Not a small job but they handled it with tact, grace and an unmatched professionalism. I wouldn't dream of going anywhere else.
Best Designer Bridal Gown Shop – Ok, most of the negative reviews I have read so far are all about the bride..NOT the shop. Get over yourself! Leslie and Kathy and Yuma are amazing!! I went with my mother in April and found my gown at a trunk show. They were so helpful while I was trying on all sorts of gowns and I felt like I was the only customer there when there were actually 3 other brides at the time. I ordered my gown and it arrived 4 months later. Went in for a couple different fittings (I had been losing weight, so I kept going back in ON MY PART to see) they didn't mind me coming in often to try on the dress due to my weight loss and when Yuma made the changes you would never know....fits like a glove. Just picked it up last night and I'm getting married in 2 weeks! One bride said she didnt like the buslte...well you told her to do it how the seamstress wanted...you didnt even see her pin it to give you an idea...that's your own fault!! Yuma pinned my buslte in a couple of different ways several times over and over so that I would be sure...she didn't mind and it came out PERFECT!! Leslie is sooo sweet...didn't see Kathy much, she's the owner, but when I did she was so nice! I would reccomend everyone to shop at The Bride's Shop. They have the best selection of designer dresses in the valley! Kudos to you Bride's Shop!
DO NOT get your alterations here! – I ordered my dress from here and had no problems. I ordered about 11 months before my wedding and the dress arrived maybe 4 months later? pretty much on schedule. Fortunately for me, I did not need any major alterations done. I probably would've stuck with their seamstress and been scr-ewed like the other reviewers. But I did need a bustle put in. I brought the dress in just shy of 8 weeks before my wedding. Told them I needed a bustle. Told them the kind I wanted, but said, "i trust the seamstress to judge which kind works best with the dress." you see, my dress is from an older collection (2006), so they've had it on their racks for some time. Meaning: the seamstress has VERY likely seen and dealt with the dress before. Well, over two weeks later, on a Thursday, I happened to call the shop to inquire about the status of the bustle (since I had my bridal party coming to town and I wanted to show them the dress -- boy was that a lucky coincidence.) She hesitated on the phone and came back to say, "uh, it'll be ready on Tuesday" I picked it up on Tuesday without ever meeting the seamstress or trying on the dress or even looking at it with the bustle done on the hanger. my mistake! I got it home, tried it on, and needless to say, the bustle did not work. The dress is lace on top of satin. The lace is not attached to the satin. So even I, a novice seamstress, knew that the lace had to be attached to the satin in order for both layers to pull up properly with the bustle. But instead, I think the seamstress did a rush job on Monday and just sewed in two basic pieces of ribbon. I was so pi- ss- ed and now had less than 5 weeks til my wedding. I instantly called the Silver Needle, without even bothering to try to go back to the Brides Shop, and she did the right work for $2 more in less than 3 weeks. She repeatedly exclaimed at how bad the work was by the Brides Shop and was particularly amazed since BRIDAL ALTERATIONS are WHAT THEY DO! I agreed. You only had to hang the dress on a hanger and do up the bustle to see that it didn't work at all -- that the lace was just all over the place. Which means, they didn't check their work. They didn't need someone to try it on -- they could've seen it on a hanger.
Anyway, I haven't even bothered to go back there to complain. I don't even care about the money ($24) in the grand scheme of things. But if I hadn't checked, I wouldn't have known they did a sh -tty job til my wedding.
I also found the veils overpriced. I had to pay an extra $100 for my dress (for extra length, which was fine). When I picked up the dress, I told them I wanted to pay for the extra length. And I ordered the veil at the same time. I paid $176. I assumed that meant the veil was like $70. Boy, was I wrong. I got a call months later telling me I still owed them $100. When I went in, they told me the $176 was for the veil. I was horrified. When I said I had told them I wanted to pay the $100 when I picked up the dress and no one EVER told me how much the veil was and I NEVER would've paid that much, they just shrugged. No apology. I realize that veils can be expensive in places, however, I bought a plain tulle fingertip length veil that I could've bought from one of these locals seamstresses for $60. Seriously -- go to the Bridal show and you will find small independent seamstresses offering veils for 1/3 of that price. I was pi - ssed.
It always sunny here! – We just had wedding in August and bought our exquisite bridal gown from The Brides' Shop. The 3/4 length
sleeves that were added and the additional beading turned out beautifully. The seamstress Yrma did a
fabulous job and my gown was everything I expected it would be. The flower girls and the bridesmaids
alterations made for a very big job, especially since we live out of state. They worked very carefully with
us to schedule fittings when we were available The staff was so good to us and made for a very stress
Incredible Experience – Buying my gown from The Brides' Shop was an incredible experience. I ordered my gown on a rush because I
was planning my wedding in a short time. It turned out to be my favorite thing about my wedding (except my
husband). My gown came in on time and the alterations were perfect. People continue to comment about
my beautiful dress. I have deep gratitude to The Brides' Shop and all their attention to detail they gave me
which made my wedding day worry free.
Horrible all the way around! – In reading the other reviews, I found that my experience is linked to the review in May. I am the bride that this dress shop ruined my dress 2 days before my wedding. I was lied to, my parents were lied to and my bridesmaids were lied to about where my dress was and what was going on with it. They just kept telling us they were behind and needed a little more time with my dress (again 2 days before my wedding). The truth was that they tore my dress and then they could not find my dress or the seamstress who was supposed to be fixing it. On Friday the day before my wedding, my mom was wondering if we needed to start looking for a new dress, they still had no answers on where my dress was and if we would ever get it back. We were given the run around for 2 days and it completely ruined my parent days building up to my wedding, because they were afraid I would not be walking down the aisle in the wedding dress of my dreams. 10:00pm on Friday we received my dress, it had not be cleaned and had not been steamed? but the most unfortunate part it had not been altered!! All she had done was sewn in my straps. My dress was one size too big for me from the get go, that is why I brought it to this shop 6 months before my wedding, to make sure they would have plenty of time to do my fittings and alterations. This store ruined my dress and ruined me being able to feel beautiful on my wedding day. I was pulling on my dress all day trying to keep it up. I have pictures that you can see the gap between my skin and the dress? Neither my family nor I even received an apology? yet they had no problem keeping my money. Please, no bride should have to feel anything less than beautiful on her wedding day. If you do not want that taken from you do not step one foot in this store!
Best Selection in town!! – I searched the valley everywhere for a dress and luckily i found myself at the charming boutique bridal store called "The Brides Shop". From the minute i walked in and saw there selection i new i was in a higher end shop. There selection consisted of mid to High end dresses at prices that were lower than other high end stores in the valley. Ask for Kathleen if you go. She is the owner and is there everyday. She is very helpful and very sweet!! The alterations lady Yarema (I think was here name) is amazing!! The dress i fell in love with wasn't a perfect fit. She rebuilt the sleeves(temple wedding) and had to let out a little, im between sizes. The dress was ready well before my Bridal's and They even had it professionally pressed before my wedding. My husband and the groomsmen also were able to be fitted for thier tuxedos, They looked so handsome!! My overall expierence with The Brides shop was a 10. I would recommend them to anyone!!
