Not worth your time
The owners of this store are nice at the beginning. After that you find out they only care about themselves and will do what it takes to give excuses as to why you can't see who makes the dresses and do not disclose anything about the dresses for comparison with other stores. You are treated rudely and it is not worth your time. Rude owners to say the least. The owners also need to keep their arguments between each other out of the store. Unprofessional.

The elegant bride salon was amazing!
I have lived in the Tacoma area and when it came time to get my wedding dress I had heard of 2 places I had to gothe elegant bride and the wedding bell! The first choice being the elegant bride! So I made my appointmentI had an amazing experienceI brought about 5 people with me and they were good with that. The lady Amy that helped me was very nice and very helpful with her suggestions and tipsI really wasn't sold on a dress so I tried some other places and realized the customer service out there for bridal salons is terrible in general! People do just not listen to your wants and needs! So I went back to the place that I felt had the best customer service. I had started my search early so I had a season change so new dresses had come in to the elegant bride by this time! Amy was the lady again that helped me there was a dress that I liked but she said she wanted me to try on one more and I was sold! They took my measurements and ordered the dressI had 3 fittings and every time after that there was a new girl in the salon but all were very helpful and very niceI went to pick my dress up the week of the wedding and they opened the bag to show me the steamed finish and the owner was not happy with the job so she took it back then and there and 10 minutes later it was perfectshe didn't make a scene or throw a fit she just said she wasn't happy with the results and took care of it! I have recommended a friend who also had a great experience and bought her dress there too! After reading the other reviews and seeing how old they aremaybe they have changed their ways for the betterhighly suggest!...

My experience was wonderful
My fiancée was getting shipped overseas so we decided to move up our wedding plans. I thought I was going to have to buy at David?s (I didn't figure I has enough time to order) but a friend told me to check out this store. On my way in I read a sign saying they had a $75.00 charge for a third visit, so since I had come alone, I asked about it. They explained that in order to keep their prices low, they have built into the price only two visits by a bride. If the bride wants to come to try on a 3rd time to confirm her choice, that?s OK, the money is credited to the dress purchase. I was a bit worried that I didn't have an appointment but when I explained my timeline they not only assured me that I had several options but also fit me into their schedule. Because they work with several designers, some have inventory they could order from while others had a ?quick ship? of 4 to 8 weeks. And they will sell their samples off the rack. I found one of their discontinued designers samples and got it for half price. My wedding dress is in great shape, maybe it was the wet naps they ask you use before you touch a dress :)\rThey completed the alterations in a week and they were excellent. Inna the seamstress is amazing.\r \rThey were awesome to work with and I have a great dress at a great price!\r

Lovely selection, but customer service is lacking!
I selected this bridal salon for my wedding needs after attending the trunk show in the Spring. When I walked into the store, the manager was annoyed that I did not have an appointment. It is not customary that bridal shops require patrons to have an appointment, but I understand why they have them. They should, at a minimum, have a sign that customers need to call ahead of time in order to see their selection. Despite the fact that I did not have an appointment, the manager was able to give me a tour of their facilities and show me their selections. (I think he did this because I was adamant about getting a particular dress that they carried and no other salons in the area carried them)Anyway, during the tour he kept emphasizing that they carried a wide selection of products. He looked me up and down and with a condescending hiss said, ""We also carry a large selection of dresses for the plus sized bride as well"" Uhm, EXCUSE ME?! According to the fashion industry, I may be plus sized and frankly, I don't care. What's horrible is that the manager had the audacity to down-right insult me or to make it sound like a size 12 is something to be ashamed of. That right there made me want to switch services, but I loved this dress and was already committed to buying it. So, I stuck with them. I was sorry that I did, because when it came close to the wedding date, the seamstress took down incorrect measurements and the dress became too tight after the alterations. They wanted to charge me even further to have the problem fixed. They ended up giving in after I pressed them, but they were not happy about it. Furthermore, they really try to push all sorts of unnecessary accessories on you. I told them in advance that I planned to wear the veil and jewelry my mother wore at her wedding, but they kept insisting that I look at their selection. These weren't gentle suggestions either! I recommend going to this location if you're looking for a bargain (and don't mind dealing w...

HORRIBLE BRIDAL SHOP
This was the first place I went to and like most brides I had no clue what to expect so when I came for my appointment i was excited to try some gowns on. That excitment went away when the owner of the store began to repeatably make comments to the bridal consultant that was working with me about some nonsnese they had going on. We would be in the middle of me trying on a gown when he would pull her aside yell at her, then have her go do something else that would take a million years, all the while i am standing there in the dress just watching the whole show! I think it is completly unprofessional to #1 talk to any person the way he did to the consultant and #2 in front of a BRIDE! I was so uncomforable and shocked at his behavior that I could not continue to watch and decided to leave in the middle of the appointment! I could not believe anyone would run thier buissness this way! Please avoid this store.trust me you will not be sorry at all!!!!...
