They were a dream to deal with! – My wedding is this coming November 18th. I had found my wedding dress and my bridesmaids' dresses at other locations a couple months ago. While my dress was fine, my bridesmaids' dresses came in the wrong color and the maker was not easy to deal with to fix the problem.
With a little less than two months left until my wedding, bridal stores and boutiques all over the county told us that "burgundy wasn't an *in* color," or that ordering timeframes were too short to accomodate our situation (even with expedites). In short, we were at a total loss....that is, until we stepped into Michael's!
Upon entrance, we were treated with the utmost respect and sincere concern to help us resolve our problem. Yolanda and her fabulous staff helped us to a wonderful array of BURGUNDY bridesmaid dresses available OFF THE RACK! The varying styles and sizes were so classy and several worked perfectly with the old hollywood theme of my wedding!
We owe everything to Yolanda! Now I can finally sleep at night having one more thing checked off the list! I would recommend that anyone just beginning their planning -- or pulling things together last minute -- visit this wonderful establishment. I have even found a fantastic dress to wear on our honeymoon! They will impress you when you go there....they sure impressed me!
BEST BRIDAL STORE IN PGH! – I'm a bride to be this coming October and I had found Michaels bridal store driving around. I had stopped in with out and appointment and they set me up right away. I found my dress that day and that was thanks to Yolanda. I even found my
brides maides dresses, flower girl dresses and tuxedos. I love the atmosphere and the staff there. Its very friendly and professional. Also what I love even more is that I found out Yolanda got a fashion degree in London so to me thats top notch!! So if you are looking for a wonderful bridal store check it out and you will love it as much as I do!
Great, friendly, service – I am a mother-of-the groom. A friend of mine told me to go to Michael's and that I would absolutely find what I was looking for.
From the first time I walked in I found everyone there to be friendly and attentive. I never felt rushed or ignored.
I found a dress that I loved and ordered it. I've been back twice for fittings and Yolanda has been lovely and very professional and the dress is fitting beautifully! She has a great attention for detail. I have been very happy!
I don't know what people are talking about - Michael's is fabulous! – In a day that I visited 3 bridal shops, Michaels was leaps and bounds better than any of the others. I bought the first dress I tried on there. The person who helped me was fantastic. The other stores I went to tried to upsell me on dresses that I couldn't afford. The sales attendant at Michaels asked me what my price range was and didn't show me anything more than that.
Now, if you're looking for a shop that is like the one in "Say Yes to the Dress," Michael's probably isn't the place for you. Those kinds of places don't even consider carrying dresses in my price range. But if you want a nice place with a lot of dresses and great service, go go Michaels! I'm one of at least 5 women I know who have had great experiences there.
I'm not having my alterations done there, because I have a great seamstress (Styles by Susan Christine) who is very reasonable, but I know a ton of people who have had great experiences with Yolanda.
Don't believe the bad reviews.
inconsiderate old women – Terrible terrible bridal store!!!!!!!!!!
I have been to many bridal stores and this one is by farrrrrrrrr the worst. For one they ordered double your measurements. So you would have to pay double the price to have altered. Never would I go there again or ever recommend to anyone even my worst enemy!!!!!! Plus do not and I repeat do not have them dye your shoes because they will not match not even be close to the color of the bridesmaids dresses. Plus I heard they were eventually going out of business. Be careful you dont want to be like the women who lost their dresses form the bridal store that secretively went out of business.
The worst bridal shop ever!!! – Please don't use michael's unless it is the last shop that carries your designer. They are rude and unhelpful and could care less about your business. I hope the owner fires everyone in the shop including their manager because she is the rudest of them all. Save your wedding and don't even consider them in the first place.
Awesome Experience – I was simply thrilled with Michaels Bridal Galleria. I'd visited several other shops and was not treated this way until I went here. Mary Lou was incredible and within minutes she had "my dress" in hand. It was so nice to know that the staff can understand what you see yourself in.
The alterations were done beautifully. The cost of the dress was not bad at all, but the alterations were somewhat pricey, so be sure to get an estimate on the alterations before having them done. Just threw me off guard. But, the overall experience rates at a 100% and I am the seventh bride in my group of friends to go here and everyone was pleased! In fact, my friend who will be a bride next year already made her purchase and is now the eight bride I know. Their dress selection is unmatched!
please don't let them ruin your wedding – I have read the reviews and wish that my neighbor had read these before they purchased anything.
Nightmare #1 My neighbor (mother of groom) had her shoes dyed the wrong color after specifically buying where she got the dress so that this wasn't going to happen--the stores response? "You picked a shoe that does not dye well." Then why didn't the staff tell her that when they were purchased?
Nightmare #2 One of the flower girls lives in Philly and the total to ship the dress is $15, not a big deal and great price right? The instructions were that the dress was to be shipped and received in 3 days, no exceptions. The bride made sure that she had the total correct and two different times was told no problem. A day and a half later (dress should have been in the mail) at 7pm a message is left that the shipping price was underestimated and that the dress would not ship until the total was paid in full!
Nightmare #3 after waiting 4 months for the dress to come in on the mother of the groom, alterations were to cost 160.00 the dress itself was 400.00 ok could be reasonable right? After dress was altered the happy mom put the dress on to find the seamstress cut off too much of the dress and would have to add back material (kind of tacky) wait...it does get better...the back was not taken in enough! The response?"You must have lost weight and that is why the back doesn't fit right!" and "in the 20 years of being a seamstress, this has not happened." She was also told that most don't want their dresses to touch the ground, hello!!! She lifts her arms and the dress comes up to her knees!! I guess she won't be dancing at the wedding!
There are about 4 more problems but you get the picture and with the wedding in 2 weeks, of course it is too late to do anything!
Great expeience! – We were extremely pleased with our experience at Michael's Bridal Galleria. Alice was very helpful and so nice, the day we bought the dress. She went out of her way to make us feel comfortable and happy with our selection. Yoldanda is extremely talented with alterations. Went out of her way to help accomodate a wedding out of town in Canada. Thanks so much. The woman who helped me order the brides maid dresses was also helpful. Thanks again!
Good so far! – Maybe i should wait until after my alterations to write my review, but so far I have loved everything about Michael's Bridal Galleria!
First of all, they were the ONLY place that had the dress I wanted. They had the best selection of dresses around. Secondly, the woman who helped me was extremely nice, made me feel beautiful & comfortable, and was nothing but pleasant to work with. However, one day I went and she wasn't there, and the other women who helped me however was not as nice to me. She seemed annoyed with me, but that isn't a reflection of everyone there. I loved my original saleswoman!
The price of my dress was unbeatable. They talked me down a size, instead of up, and the dress came in fitting perfectly! So I don't think they are running alteration scams like others said. Most places lie and make you upsize so they can get you for alterations. I WANTED to upsize, and they told me not to. I only need the bust taken in an inch or so for my alterations, everything else is perfect. The dress came in when they said it would too, in pristine condition.
My only complaint is when I bought my dress they told me my bridesmaids would save 10% - after I bought my dress they said I need to have 6 or more bridesmaids to get a discount. That upset me, as I only have 5, but I think it will be negotiable. If my experience changes I will change my review, but so far so good for me! Couldn't do this without Michaels! =)
