Friendly Service – The staff is amazing, actually staff named Devinnie is amazing. I had an one on one 90 consultation with her, and she made me feel so comfortable I wanted it to last forever!! To be honest trying on dresses can be so overwhelming for brides to be, the pressure of finding the perfect dress can be just so stressful, so why visit a boutique that makes you feel like no body?? Take my advise, give them a call... you will walk out of there feeling good, and find yourself closer to understanding the styles you like at least!
THE BEST BRIDAL EXPERIENCE IN PORTLAND – I NEVER write reviews, however, I was so happy with my shopping experience here i had to write one! I visited 4 different places in Portland while on my first wedding dress shopping trip. AniA stood out as the best by far. I had an AWFUL ( and I mean horrible) experience at the store down the block ( I think its called silver lining or something like that) my scheudled appointment lasted less than 15 minutes there because it was so awful. I had an appointment at AniA scheduled for later in the day, but decided to stop in and see if they had an earlier time. The women were all VERY pleasant and helpful. Of course the store was very busy because 2 major trunk shows were going on, so I wasn't able to get my appointment in much earlier (totally understandable) The sales people and the owner were very helpful when I asked about other stores to possibly check out while I tried to kill time for 2 hours... They didn't seem defensive or hesitant to offer other suggestions for places to look. When I came back for my appointment, They were able to get me in a half hour earlier than expected. Helena was my helper and I can't say enough about how great she is! I must have tried on over 20 dresses and she never got annoyed or rushed me. After almost 2 hours, I had it narrowed down to 3 dresses.. I couldn't decide because I loved them all. BUT between Helena, 3 other associates, the owner, and my mom...I FINALLY found my dream dress. AniA made my dreams of having an Alvina dress come true, and I can not thank them enough! The sales people are GREAT (very helpful, patient, and have a great eye for what looks good) one thing to note, the store is a little small, however, They are moving to a new location sometime in October. This place is AWESOME and I would not recommend anyone other than AniA..... THANK YOU ANIA!!!!!!
Best Bridal Experience in Pdx! – I never write these, but I had such a great experience at Ania that I feel I need to highlight it for other brides. I went in thinking I wanted one style, and was VERY distraught to find that the cut I had in mind didn't work with my body type. Luckily, I met Morgan. One look at her and you know she knows fashion. After only talking to her for a few minutes she already had multiple dresses that had the same fun/classy/modest/unique vibe as the dress I thought I liked, but in dresses that would look good on me. She was easy to talk to and cracked a few jokes, so me and my friends were really comfortable.
She took lots of time with me, and helped me in and out of many dresses, but in the end I picked the FIRST dress she picked for me!
I would recommend Ania to any Portland bride, and I would HIGHLY recommend going to see Morgan if you're like me and didn't want A dress, I wanted THE dress.
Best customer service experience – Ania bridal in Portland, Oregon was the best wedding gown shopping experience I've had. The gowns are high quality - you can feel the difference in the fabric and there is a wide selection of gowns to select from. I went to Charlotte's, Devine Design, Anna's and yes, even David's Bridal, and Morgan from Ania was the most friendly, supportive, helpful, and discerning person I met.
Since my sister lives out of state and my mom's schedule is busier than mine, I went to most places on my own. When I went to Ania, I needed someone to help me decide which dress was the right one. With Morgan, it was like a had a sister or good friend. She helped pick out dresses that fit my style, flattered my body, and made me feel good about myself. She was patient, understanding (I came in three separate times), and provided the honest opinion I needed. Morgan's kindness and sincerity make Ania Bridal the place to go!
Next to my FAV. store! Liana's Boutique – Great location! I've recently got engaged and was shopping for a night out in the town at LIANA"S BOUTIQUE (which is right next door to Ania!)
Anyway, saw the window displays for Ania next door to Liana's. Def. will stop by at Ania next time in shopping at Liana's =)
AHHH love being engaged =)))
Ania Bridal Collection – I am a newly engaged bride to be, and my first experience bridal gown shopping was at Ania Collection. My bridal consultant, Rachel, did a fantastic job. Within seconds of what I explained I wanted my dress to look like, she had 5-6 dresses pulled out. When I was torn between two style I loved, she asked questions that allowed me to analyze which one I really felt like a princess in. She was very kind and she really made this experience a very very delightful and joyful one. The customer service I received here does not compare to any other bridal shop in Portland, OR.
Amazing experience even for far-away brides! – My mother had fallen in love with a beautiful Badgley-Mischka gown in NY where we live, but no one was able to get it in time for my wedding less than three months away. I desperately started calling stores that sold Badgley-Mischka - and I came across the amazing ladies of AniA.
Helena was a dream come true. She was so prompt and really worked hard to get the dress rushed to us. She stayed in contact with us throughout the whole process so we knew precisely what was going on. It wasn't easy for her, but she managed to get the EXACT dress we wanted in the EXACT color - and it could be shipped to us in time! In fact, it actually reached us a few days early. My mom and I burst into tears when we saw the dress - it was flawless and a perfect fit.
I wish I had ordered all of my gowns from there. The service, pricing, and attention to detail are unparalleled. They treated me so well even though I only ordered one dress - I bet their customers are completely spoiled!
I cannot thank Helena and her team enough. My mother looked and felt like a million bucks at my wedding, and she will continue wear her dress to many formal events. AniA Bridal made my wedding day perfect for my entire family. You're the best!
Amazing Selection and Gracious Staff – I went in to AniA when I first got engaged purely out of excitement. They have beautiful dresses from a number of my favorite designers and some that I didn't even know how much I loved! I hadn't really formulated an idea of what I was looking for yet and just wanted to get a sense of how different styles looked on me. I can understand how it might be trying for people to work on commission to spend their time and efforts on someone that has no intent of buying anything, but the woman who was helping my (Karen I think?) really seemed to share my excitement. Not only was she extremely knowledgeable and welcoming, but she did a great job of showing me a wide range of styles and helping me decide which few to focus on when I'm ready to dress shop for keeps. (which will definitely be at AniA!!)
I bought 11 dresses I like them so much!! – Amazing personal attention, called all my wedding party and coordinated for me, Altered very impossible dresses, even designed my own unique bussle for my unique dress!
The Team at Ania Bridal was so professional and took the time to get to know me and my family. Elana made my wedding day and dress buying process so easy and fun! She helped me coordinate bridesmaids in many states and even helped me connect with Jennifer the dress tailor who created a unique bussle for my dress. When a bridesmaid ordered the wrong size dress and lived out of state Ania Bridal helped her alter it perfectly 2 days before the wedding.
One of the most amazing things that stands out in my mind was how attentive the shop was to my family. My diabetic sister had a low blood sugar while we were dress shopping and they found her juice. Every person in the shop went above and beyond their job descriptions.
I would tell every bride to go to Ania first. I personally went to 4 other shops and felt rushed to make a decision. Ania let me try on as many dresses as I wanted and helped me choose dresses in my price point. When I found my dress I never looked back with regret.
Lucky me! – Due to an unforeseen situation, my now husband and I had to bump up our wedding date and had to plan it all in 4 weeks....including finding a dress! After having been a bridesmaid several times, I knew that there would be no way to order a dress at a bridal salon and have it altered quickly enough, so I bought a dress online. Disaster. Thankfully a friend brought me to Ania. Once I walked in, I was doubtful that I could find anything in my price range because beautiful, expensive dresses were dripping of the wall. Sweet Karyn was my fairy god mother. For real. She asked me "if you could have any dress you wanted regardless of price or time frame, what would it look like?" I thought I would humor her, confident that I wouldn't find a dress. Wrong. She buzzed around the store, picked out several options and within minutes I had two amazing dresses that I couldn't believe were in my price range. I cried, my friend with me cried and even Karyn got a little teary eyed. Jennifer did an amazing job altering it and super quickly (less than a week!). She transformed an already perfect dress into something I absolutely adored. AND she made sweet flowers from the scrap fabric for my hair. A lot of amazing things happened for my last minute wedding to be perfect- Karyn, Jennifer and the Ania staff were on the top of that list.
