I had a very pleasant experience at Occasions. Yes, it is small, yes there is only one mirror, but I had no problem with that - I guess I don't need to be treated like a Queen. I found the perfect wedding gown, reasonbly priced, by a designer that is largely unknown with styles that are a bit different, more classy and better quality than gowns I tried on at other salons. Yes, there was one salesperson who is a bit pushy, ut this is the wedding business and you have to have a thick skin. Gail, the owner was an extremely calming influence and wonderful to me. My gown came in months earlier than promised which was a huge relief. My only negative is the alterations situation - they are affiliated with a shop across the street, and the seamstress working the day I went was just not qualified to do wedding gowns. If you're not a prima donna, want a great selection of reasonbly priced gowns, and can deal with alterations on your own, definitley give this shop a chance.
horrible – I made the huge mistake of shopping here for my mother-of-the bride dress for my daughter's wedding. They ordered the dress 2 sizes too large. The salesperson who gave me the dress when it came in assured me it would be no big deal to get it altered properly. I went to the seamstress they refer customers to; her shop is across the street. What a nightmare. I made multiple trips to her shop and she was never, ever, able to get it right. The final straw was when she gave me the dress with the zipper installed so that one side was 1/4 inch higher than the other. That's just the tip of the iceberg, she really butchered the dress. I ended up finding a different seamstress who miraculously repaired all of the damage just in time for the wedding. I would never, ever shop at this place again; they never should have ordered the dress the way they did, and their seamstress is a hack.
