Best-Kept Secret in Nashville – As a new bride-to-be, it wasn't hard for me to become quickly overwhelmed with all the planning and craziness that comes with a wedding. The word "elopement" popped into mine & my fiance's head several times over the first few weeks :)
I decided I needed to do something fun and go find "The Dress" with my mom & my sister. I quickly nixed the idea of the more widely known bridal stores. I've been to them countless times for other people's weddings and it was always a stressful experience, I felt like I was on an assembly line. I was always shoved in a dressing room with 50+ girls and it made me nervous with all the loudness and pushy employees.
I walked into Glitz Bridal and I immediately felt a wave of relief! It was a beautiful little salon with a very friendly staff and lots of unique dresses for amazingly low prices. I was one of the only brides there and I felt like I could truly enjoy the day trying on dresses instead of rushing to get out of there. It was a perfect day and I found the perfect dress! I strongly recommend going to Glitz for a one-of-a-kind bridal experience! :)
ps: If you're hungry beforehand, go to Lemongrass restaurant down the street. They have amazing Thai food and fantastic cocktails :)
Amazing Staff!! – The staff at Glitz Bridal were all so sweet and helpful! Ashley was helping me find dresses and she was just so great! Very honest and helpful! I found 3 dresses that I really liked, but one that I loved! As soon as I put dress #1 on I knew it was the one and didn't need to try another thing on! I plan on going back to get my veil and I'm sending my bridesmaids there to get their dresses!! I was so happy with my experience at the store!! Ask for Ashley, she's amazing!!
Best Dress shop in Nashville area! – i first went to Glitz out on a limb 2 years ago looking for a christmas formal gown & found the perfect one then. since then i have bought 3 more dresses for prom & other formals, etc. i've always had amazing service & Mrs. Ann & her staff are amazing & give you their own opinions & don't try to just sell you the product. They help you in every possible way! I've been to many dress stores & you don't get the one-on-one time with those dress stores as you do at Glitz!
Recently, my sister & I both were nominated & elected to the football homecoming court at our highschool so you know what that means....more dresses!
Glitz was the first place we went to, & of course we both found our dream dresses! They stayed way over closing time just to be convient to us, because we live about an hour away from the store, & it is hard for us to get there until 5 or so, & they never complained about it!
I don't know about you, but i'm a lifeguard & when people stay over, i get very agitated & they didn't one bit.
The best thing Mrs. Ann did was give us a reasonable deal for both dresses which was very releiving to my mother! i would recommend Glitz to anyone because the service is always amazing, & they are very easy to deal with! We will definitely be going back!
My experience at Glitz Bridal is one I will not forget. The Salon and Staff participated in Brides Across America in support of our troops. My Fiancee is currently serving in Afghanistan and we have just had a new baby 8wks ago. Finances are not the greatest for a wedding. With their participation and genorisity, I was able to recieve a donated beautiful wedding gown with the help of the nicest down to earth people!! They were so helpful and assisted me in everything I needed. A very special Thank you goes out to each and every staff member there. They should be applauded for their help and genorisity. Thank you Glitz Bridal! I wont forget you guys! :)
Overall Good Experience – Overall, I had a good experience with Glitz Bridal. There was some confusion over the agreed upon price and the location/delivery of bridesmaid dresses, but Ann's staff could not have been sweeter during my many visits, more accomodating whenever I dropped in or called, or more reasonable when I found the dress for cheaper at another store in-town (she matched the price).
Awesome service for Bridal or Prom! – Ann the owner helped me look for my wedding dress and within 30 minutes I had found the perfect Allure gown! She also had the bridesmaid dresses I wanted at HALF the price of another bridal store! I would recommend this be the only place you go in Nashville for Bridal or Prom dresses!
Loved this place, definitely recommend!!!! – I went to several places trying to find the perfect evening gown for a banquet that I was attending in LA. I went to Glitz finally. Not only did I have very good service, they worked very hard to get me what I wanted and needed. I had a sort of low price range, but they still found me a gorgeous dress that I got swarmed with compliments at the banquet. They were very nice to me, and I had no appointment. When I told them I needed a dress to specifically match a necklace it was no problem for them to help me find something! Not one person while I was in LA said my dress had shoddy alterations done or that it looked bad. I definitely thank the entirety of the staff that I met at Glitz for all their help, and highly recommend them to anyone looking for any type of special occasion gown. The reviews on here are very misleading I think too. Considering you need to remember during certain times of the year yes they will be busy so yes they might get a little agitated. And if you're rude to them, expect the same treatment anywhere you go. Good luck!! Definitely try and go here!!
Get ready for attitude – I did not have an appointment, but had emailed the store before they opened 6 hours before going. Upon walking in and receiving a dirty look the older woman behind the counter said "can we help you?" in a rude, agitated voice.
I explained that I had written an email and before finishing what I was saying, the older woman interrupted me and said "we've been very busy." I continued to ask if they had the dress I was looking for. The woman said she didn't recognize the name and said it must be a few years old. It's in the upcoming spring collection- her crappy store just didn't have it yet.
I wanted to look at birdcage veils and facinators, however the facinators were ugly and there were no birdcage veils.
I already bought my dress at THE WHITE ROOM, which I would recommend highly to anyone. The staff at Glitz makes you feel like you are beneath them and an invconvenience. DO NOT GET YOUR DRESS AT GLITZ.
AWESOME SHOP! GREAT SERVICE! – I had an awesome experience at Glitz Bridal! Ann was so very helpful and did everything she could to help me get the dress of my dreams. Unfortunately, I ordered my dress from another local shop that closed their doors leaving me and a lot of brides without dresses. I called Ann in a panic and she had my bridesmaids dresses rerouted to Glitz by the end of the week and my dress came in the next week. I wish I had ordered from Glitz to start with but feel so lucky to have found someone who was so helpful just 6 weeks before my wedding. I would, without a doubt, send any bride, anyone looking for prom dresses or for any formal event to Glitz Bridal. They have a great selection of anything you would need for a wedding or formal event plus they are the nicest people to work with! Don't waste your time going to other shops...just go to Glitz!! Ann and Ashley are awesome and I appreciate their help more than they could ever know!!! Thanks to them I have the dress of my dreams!!!
I will Never give Glitz any future business! – This was the worst experience I've ever had in a wedding. My friend chose Glitz because she knew the owner, ANN, who is extremely rude P.S. My friend had 5 bridesmaids..all of which have really busy lives. I talked with Ann several times, she was pressed for time and needed my measurements. Very abrasive in the way she handled me when I told her I couldn't get by there for measurements, but I would send her a rough estimate. Now I don't now my exact measurements, because I was a few months pregnant at the time..and growing. What I do know is that I've always been a size 10. Just to be safe I asked her to order me a size 14, and I would have it altered. She refused to order the size that I wanted, and insisted we go by my estimate measurements I had done by myself at home..which she said made me a size 22!!! I have never been a size 22 or anywhere near in my life! I tried to talk with her about this, and she was amazingly RUDE, just short of cussing I told her to order the dress(only because my friend the bride had enough stress)..and sure enough she ordered a size 22. When it came in not only did I pay too much for the dress, but the alterations which had to try to take the dress down 10 sizes!! Were more than the dress cost itself! I was not the only one who had this problem..ALL the other bridesmaids dresses were extremely to big as well. My dress never looked the same as the other girls, I had to wear a tank top under it during the wedding, and now I'm stuck with this unflattering dress that doesn't fit. Thanks, ANN..great customer service. Who cares if you ordered the dress a size 14 and it didn 't fit..it would still have been my responsibility to pay for the dress. I knew what size I was, clearly someone has ruined it for us all and now she can't trust people to tell her their correct size. I am getting married in December and wouldn't dream of using this company for my girls. Good luck, oh! and make sure you go in and have Ann measure you if you want them to order you the correct size
