OMG! BARANETTE'S IS THE BEST – OMG Baranette’s is the best! I went to several other places first. I was so confused and so disappointed. I walked into Baranette’s and was so wowed by the look of the store and couldn’t believe how clean and pretty it was compared to all the other stores I was at. My mom and I were greeted by the owner Dawn super nice! She walked us over to meet Marie our consultant also super nice! Marie asked me a little bit about what I was looking for. She immediately picked out several gowns for me to try on. Needless to say I found the gown of my dreams “silk with beautiful lace and beading” along with my veil, headpiece and jewelry. We spent much less then I originally was expecting to pay. My dress came in and all my fitting were perfect. I was always greeted by name by everyone in the store. Were do you get this kind of service anymore? I felt like I was family. My mom and bridesmaids also got their dresses here and they all loved everyone at the store. Don’t waste your time by going anywhere else
Best place for tuxedos – I have to say I was in several of my friends weddings this past year and we got our tuxedos from your typical men’s store. I won’t mention the name, the service was ok. Then one of my friends decided on Baranette’s. At first I thought it was strange going to a bridal shop. Once I was there all the women were so nice and friendly. Everything fit so perfect that was the first time that has ever happened for me. So when I got married I had to use Baranette’s and again all was perfect. I can’t say enough about the women at Baranette’s. I tell all my friends that this is the place to go.
Best Place Ever!!!!!!! – Best place ever!!!! In the past 5 years I have been in 5 weddings. I have gotten 4 out of the 5 dresses at Baranette's. Dawn the owner is great. Every time I have been in there I see her go above and beyond to make everyone feel welcome in her store. I have been to many stores and never have I seen any one that takes as much interest in all their customers as Dawn does. Her staff is great they are all so nice and make everyone feel welcome. I hate when I see a bad review on this place I just try and remember that there is always 2 sides to a story.This place is truly a hidden GEM that everyone should know about.
Don't go here for tuxs! – We used Baranette's bridal for the men's tux's and had a very bad experience with them. We originally went through Men's Warehouse since we had a few groomsmen from out of town, but we were very unable with their selection. Baranette's said they can handle groomsmen from out of town and that they would just have to fax their measurements into the shop. They do have a very wide selection of tux's in different colors and styles. Like the below review, the beginning of our experience with the shop was very good and we left happy until the week before our wedding. The shop called and said that the tux's are ready and that they can be picked up Wednesday afternoon.
The first major problem we had was that the shop is closed on Fridays and we had two groomsmen that weren't going to be in-town until Friday morning. I don't know how they can be closed the day before the most popular wedding day of the week?!?! Why not be closed on Monday's and Tuesday's? So my husband picked up the tux's for the two groomsmen on Thursday and if there was anything wrong with the tux's, they had to leave a message on their voicemail and go in on Saturday morning (the day of the wedding!) and get the tux's altered. Which leads me to the next big problem we had!
All of the measurements Dawn, the owner, took were wrong! The two groomsmen that got measured elsewhere in Florida, their tuxs fit perfectly and didn't need to be altered one bit! As for my father, my father in law, my husband, and my brother all had to have something fixed which you had to fight to get them to fix. My father in law's pants were way too big and the tailor told them that they were fine even though he was stepping on his pant legs! I was soooo pissed when I saw my husband the day of our wedding and his sleeves were almost touching his fingers and he couldn't take his jacket off at the reception because the vest wasn't tailored correctly. My brother was one of the groomsmen that couldn't make it in town until Friday morning and his shirt sleeves were so long that he had to fold them over a few times so they wouldn't peak out underneath the jacket (this was after he took it to the shop on Saturday morning). The shop also provided the wrong pocket square to one of the groomsmen and the wrong size shoes. They had a new pocket square shipped, but it was the wrong color!
Also, one of the groomsmen only put a deposit down when he ordered his tux so when he picked up the tux he had to pay the rest of the amount owed with cash. They do not accept credit cards when paying the rest of the amount owed, which seems a little fishy to me. When asked why, they couldn't give me a straight answer.
My father has been the spokesmen for all the men in the bridal party and has been trying to get some money back since they all paid almost $200 for their tuxs and nothing was right! Dawn has not been helpful or willing to give some money back as she thinks nothing was wrong! Now, I am not a professional tailor nor do I know anything about tuxs, but we had two groomsmen that got measured somewhere else and their tuxs fit perfectly while everyone else that got measured at Baranette's had nothing fitting them which proves that Dawn made the mistake, not us! She is also not willing to refund the payment of $10 to the groomsmen that was given the wrong pocket square (both times). She stated that he had it on the wrong side, but it
Alright selection, nice staff – I went in and really had the store the store to myself. I had a decent sized budget so I was able to try on a lot, but they did not have that many to begin with. I put on tons of dresses even had one in my top running. Marie was very nice and beyond understanding. She listened to me versus my tagalongs. The little extra touch was the handwritten thank you card she sent me for just shopping.
I didn't find THE dress, but you should check it out in case you do.
thanks again – These guys were awesome! They were very helpful from the moment I walked in and made the biggest part of my big day that much easier! They called me as soon as my gown came in (which is the worst...the waiting!). They even custom made my veil at no additional cost. All their alterations are done for a flat fee of $200. They made sure everything was ready a month ahead of time.
the staff was absolutely amazing – I bought my wedding dress at Baranettes. The staff there is absolutely amazing! They are so helpful and incredibly knowledgeable. Dawn, the shop owner, takes it upon herself to make sure each and every bride, bridesmaid and mother of the bride/groom looks nothing less than perfect on the special day!
great experience – I had the best experience at the shoppe.their prices are excellent. I got everything for my wedding at Baranette's.I looked awesome,My bridesmaids,flower girls and both mothers were stunning! The guy's also got their tuxedo's and they sure did look handsome. I can't say enough about Baranette's, it should be you one and only place you shop.I would and do recommend Baranette's to everyone I know.
Stress Free Experience – The staff at Baranette's made choosing & purchasing my wedding dress,bridesmaids dresses, tuxedos & accessories for the biggest day of my life such a fabulous & stress free experience!
Helpful Ladies – My wife and I enjoyed the service from the staff at Baranette's Bridal & Tuxedo. The woman were very helpful in finding my wife a dress for our wedding and helping me get a tuxedo as well.
