The place for a bride to be a princess – This place makes a bride feel like a QUEEN. Its like an Italian wonderland with such beautiful marble. It has such quality & unique things to choose from. They have a very big selection of gowns. You will be happy 100% with Monicas Bridal because you will be getting the best. It is also I wonderful spot to take pictures on the day of the wedding!
The store in it’s own class – My girlfriend had bought her dress about a year ago and it was spectacular. She was the center of attention at her wedding. Me and my fiancé are getting married in November 2010 so naturally we start asking around My girlfriend recommended Monica Bridal store to me and I had to try. I live in New Jersey so me and my fiancé had made a trip to Brooklyn so what’s available. WOW what a magnificent place with very nice decor. The girl that helped us was super nice. Her name is lena and she got strait to the point,she asked us all the right questions, she demonstrated an extreme knowledge in fashion and let me try some of the the dresses’ on. She had explained to me the way I should look in the dress . She has great personality and very helpful. We will be back to pre order the dress. Great variety and great service make Monica’s Bridal the best place to buy a dress.
Pleasant Surprise – I walk by Monica's Bridal almost everyday on the way to Bally's gym on Sheepshead Bay rd. I'm not anywhere close to being a bride, but decided to walk in to take a look at what this beautiful place had in store . Their bridal gowns are breath-taking indeed, but to my surprise i found that they also carry evening dresses. I found a stunning gown for someone else's wedding i had to attend. i was so ecstatic to have randomly walked in to find this dress. The sales girl that worked with me was very nice and was negotiable on the price. Also, since i am a shorty they offered to alter my dress for my fit :)
The Review before mine, Now thats gotta be a scam! – The review before mine has got to be a joke! I have shopped in this store since I was a little girl taking part in my uncles wedding as a flower girl and the proof is in the pudding! with over twenty years in the business if this place was a scam this place would not be around! Over the years I have purchased many dresses from this shop from the flower girl dress mentioned above to a custom dress for my sweet sixteen to my prom dress and now my wedding dress, needless to say both my mother and aunt both have had an equal share of experience with this store and every time is a better experience then the last. I personally don't write online reviews because I just really don't have the time but after searching Google for the exact address to enter in my navigation I came across this review site and was appalled by some of the reviews I have read! I even decided not to write a review right away and check out the new location, I mean who knows maybe the service changed.. It didn't if anything the service became even better because of what seems to be stricter customer service guidelines. The sales girls literally seemed like they would do back flips for me if I so much as asked! And believe me I'm not an easy girl to deal with, I kept the sales girl for over two hours before I made my selection and the whole time service with a smile.. Not nearly the service I got in Kleinfeld, after about twenty minutes in that store the sales girl was looking for any way possible to get me out of the store and off her back. So girls you do the math trust some bimbo who obviously has stepped out of her cave for the first time in her life and went shopping or someone who has shopped, is shopping, and will continue to shop in this store..
Pros: Attentiveness, Selection, Showroom, Brands, In-House Alterations, In-House Custom Department
Cons: None, only that I don't have more events to use as an excuse to shop in this store
What a Scam! – Money issue aside, here's what happened: I tried on a sample dress off the floor which I loved. The girls at the store told me sample dresses are not for sale and they will order a new one which should come in 2 months. Two months later I come in to try on theis "new" dress. No doubt about it it was the same sample dress I tried on before. I confronted them and they just kept telling me their lies that it was a new dress. How did I know it was the same sample dress? B/c it had a lipstick stain on the inside. And their excuse for the lipstick stain on the "new" dress was - these dresses are handmade the stain was placed there when the dress was made. OMG!! If i wanted a sample dress I would have bought that sample dress. Not only did they overcharge me, they are liars, and they wasted 2 months of my time as they made me wait for the stupid dress! I have never ever been treated so badly as a customer as I have been when I went to this store. WHAT A SCAM!
No complaints – Went here on a fluke and went back after going to many places in the city. Even though the dress my daughter fell in love with was above her budget, Liliana gave us a great deal and the dress is hers at a price we can live with. Everyone was very nice and not rude or cold at all. The place is stunning if that is important to you. We just were concerned with the dress and getting alterations made to have it look as she wanted. It was an overall pleasant and accomodating experience.
best bridal store! – this store was the most stunning and beautiful place I have ever seen! the best part was that the dresses inside were even more beautiful! I was helped by a wonderful sales person that helped me for over 2 hours to find the most perfect dress! They really made me look like a princess!!!
Worst place ever – this place was the worst. they conned me into buying a dress there but added extra charges after we left. Worst customer service after you pay them. Very fake until the finalize the sale. Did not let me have a final fitting. Very rude and obnoxious. After we paid them half (which is required in cash) they tried to say that we didnt and wanted us to pay the full price. Worst place. Very unprofessional. Lots of other places have way better service but they are initially decent so you don't see it coming.
Dream Gown – My dream was to look regal at my wedding. I went to Monicas Bridal because I heard that they had a costum department and I could not find a ready gown that I liked. I met with Lily, the designer. She was very pleasant. She listened as I explained my ideas and within a few minutes she had a sketch and was showing me materials. It was exciting to see my ideas come to life. A few months and many fittings later, I had my dream gown. Lily's suggestions, like bell sleeves and embroidered lace really made it perfect. I would recommend Lily at Monicas Bridal to any bride that wants a very special gown made just for her.
