Milford >Gina's Bridal Boutique
The dress shopping day didn't start out
great. My mom, two older sisters, and I (yes, lots of opinions) started the day at a "big box" bridal store and while the gowns were alright, the saleswoman was pushy and I could not shake the idea of hundreds of other girls with the same exact dress and experience. Next we headed to a boutique shop where the saleswoman told me I would HAVE to wear an A-line gown and that maybe my sister should try the dresses on since she was more the shape of the sample dresses. While I sat in the car and cried, we called Gina's. Gina told us to come by, that they had dresses in lots of sizes. Thank God I didn't give up!
From the minute we walked in, I knew I wanted to buy my dress from Gina- acutally I even wanted to buy my bridesmaid gowns from her too, even if it was a bit of a drive! She made me feel excited again, after a really rough morning of shopping. I was a bride, even if I wasn't a size 2 bride, and I deserved to look gorgeous too. Gina had all types of dresses for the "medium sized" bride to try on. I wasn't swimming in plus-sized dresses or asking my sister to try on smaller sizes. It wasn't just the samples though. Gina makes you feel like part of the family. The shop is gorgeous, but the atmosphere the ladies that work there have created is overwhelmingly beautiful. When I think back on wedding memories, one of my favorites will always be opening those big glass doors, taking off our winter boots to walk on gorgeous wood floors, and laughing and smiling with my family as we went though ALL the dresses Gina puts out on display for everyone to touch and see themselves. Thank you just doesn't seem like enough!
Buyer's Beware !.
At first I was very impressed with this shop. The lady's there were very kind and even went out of thier way to make my visit a pleasant one. I found the perfect dress. I agreed to use the seamstress that worked out of their store upon Gina's recomendation. When I got my dress back I was horrified!!!!!!! To be perfectly honest I could have done a better job if I had taken it home and done it myself. She had taken all of the extra fabric and just folded it over and tacked it down. Also the seams on the outside of the dress no longer lined up and there were very notiable puckers along both sides of the dress.
When I tried to complain about the condition of my dress I was told that Gina's was not responsable. Gina's bridal also informed me that they had already let this woman go and were in the process of taking her to court. I was so upset! I had just one week untill the wedding and had no idea what to do. I begged Gina's Bridal to help me and was told I only had two options, I could take my dress back to the woman who had messed it up and make her fix it ( she has her own store in Waterford ) or I could just pay someone else to fix it. Even though I had written the check to Gina's Bridal for the alterations they refused to give me a refund. So buyer's beware of Gina's Bridal!
Great Customer Service and Selection. If you are planning your wedding just go there. It is a small store but the girls who work there are awesome and they have an amazing selection. I had been to a ton of stores and didn't find anything unique until I went to Gina's.
