I can’t say enough how much I love the wedding shoppe. I’ve had so many amazing experiences there. Not only for my own wedding, but also 4 of my best friends got married within the last 16 months. Yes, that’s a lot of bridesmaids dresses. But thanks to the wedding shoppe, every bride and bridesmaid for each wedding found a dress in the color the bride wanted, and various styles flattering for each body time. Especially mine. I was a plus size bride (sz 18 in women’s) and was really worried I wouldn’t be able to find a dress to even fit me to try on, but would also be affordable. I hit the jackpot! Not everything came in every size, but the staff was so helpful and showing me options that were available or comparable. I was so impressed.
Did you know they do menswear too?! I didn’t. We used them for our wedding and they were great. I really appreciated how much variety they had in colors and styles. We went with basic black tuxes, but I was really surprised by all the blue and grey suit options. One of the weddings I was in used them as well and did navy suits. They looked so sharp. We did have a few hiccups with sizing a little off on some garments, but they resolved everything quickly.
I would highly recommend anyone go there and see their selection. The service was great, I thought they had a huge selection of styles, sizes and even a range of prices. I can’t wait until another one of my friends gets engaged and I can go shopping with them at the wedding shoppe.
I cannot recommend The Wedding Shoppe enough!!! I had Sophie as a stylist, and she was incredible! I’ve never felt more comfortable or beautiful! I’m pretty self conscious, but Sophie made me feel incredible! She was SO knowledgeable and picked the best dresses! The Wedding Shoppe was the first place I went to look. I went to two other places, and I knew I had to find my dress at The Wedding Shoppe because of my experience, so I went back again, and Sophie helped me find the one!!! Everyone was so wonderful, and I would recommend it to everyone getting married! I’ll be going back there for my bridesmaids, and my fiancé is going there for tuxes!
I had such a great experience with the team at Wedding Shoppe! They accommodated the size of my group, and my consultant did an amazing job of narrowing in on my style. I ended up ordering my perfect dress that day! It just came in, and I went in to try it on – the process was so smooth and stress free!
I arrived to my appointment 15 minutes early and was told to look around and my consultant would find me. Only about 10 minutes went by and Carolyn found my mom and I and was instantly personable!! She complimented both my mom and I and was so excited for me to try on dresses. She brought us to our private room, which was amazing!! My future mother in law and my sister hadn’t gotten there yet, but they were kindly shown to our room when they arrived.
Carolyn asked me how my other experiences had gone, and they were awful. She understood right away why I had a previous bad experiences. She just got me and how I felt about my body and everything. She was just so great. She asked what styles I liked and went to go grab some. She came back with 4 dresses. One of them I LOVED and I had asked if there were any others like it in the store and she went to go find. Low and behold, that was the dress I chose!!
Carolyn has 20 years of experience, and it showed. She was comforting, funny, and made me feel beautiful!!
I would recommend looking for your wedding dress here, it was amazing!
I was very disappointed with my experience at The Wedding Shoppe. Of all the stores I had searched online, I was most excited to book an appointment with them. We arrived 15 minutes early, as requested upon booking, and proceeded to stand waiting for 30 minutes before we were finally seen by a consultant (there was no seating available). Our consultant was very preppy and appeared eager to get started with the appointment. I was excited too, as it appeared she would be helpful in finding the dresses I liked. After filling out a short form, my consultant disappeared for 15 minutes to find some dresses. I sat with my guests, wondering when she would be back. When she came back, she showed me four dresses she had pulled. None of them really spoke to me, and all I wanted to do was look through the racks and find some dresses with my guests (two of which had traveled over three hours for this appointment). I tried on three of the four dresses and again waited around with my guests for 15 minutes while my consultant found more dresses. One of my guests even asked if she could browse the dress selection and was denied, even though the other brides in the overly-crowded store were allowed to look at the selection with their guests. I only made one request the entire appointment; I wanted to try on a dress that my mother had liked. When I showed my consultant the dress, she said she didn’t think they had it but would look. She ended up finding it but didn’t want me to try it on because it didn’t fit in with the other styles she had selected for me. So I didn’t end up trying it on. It was beyond frustrating; I do not understand how a consultant can be so restrictive to a bride and her guests, especially when I was just beginning my search. I felt like I was not only wasting my time but the time of my guests.

I had never heard of the Wedding Shoppe before getting engaged. I had multiple friends and family recommend going here and I am so glad I did. From the moment we pulled up I knew I was going to love my experience. How incredibly cute of a location first of all… an adorable huge house on Grand avenue! We were immediately greeted by the sweet gal at the front desk who made us feel welcome. I loved that we were given our own room to enjoy. It felt so much more personal as well as private.
(I have to compare to a previous shopping experience earlier that day at a different bridal shop, and I had to pop my head out of a dressing room and get the attendants attention every time I needed help zipping it up and securing the dress all while there were ten strangers next to me looking at me. The attendant was helping both bride-to-be’s so she was jumping back and forth and clearly too busy. While looking at the dress I had on in the mirror she would walk away right in the middle as if she wasn’t even paying attention. This made my hour and a half appointment time go by extremely quick and it was a little disappointing)
So to go from that experience to someone like Crosby was a breath of fresh air. First of all, can we all just agree that this girl is adorable? I could not have asked for a better consultant. She did such a great job accommodating my every need. She was pleasant, positive, and had great attention to detail. Not to mention she made me felt comfortable and very important all in one. Many brides come and go all day every day, and she made me feel like I was the only one there.
I had a few ideas printed out, as well as dresses saved on my profile. This was helpful for me to show her what my interests were, and for her to compare ideas with. Every dress she brought for me to try on, you could just see them becoming more and more my style. It was incredible seeing it go from wow that’s a beautiful dress but I would change this or that… to Oh my goodness, YES this is my dress!
When I wasn’t sure what alterations would look like Crosby even ensured us by bringing in Amber. I loved her energy! She knew the moment she walked in and saw the dress on me that it was WINIFRED! I would describe Amber as someone with a super power of seeing what alterations could do all while maneuvering the dress to give me this visual. I really appreciated her input and help.
Side story: My mom is now naming her next heifer Winifred, because what a cute name! We laughed a lot and are still laughing!!
Hands down, I would recommend going to the Wedding Shoppe for a great overall experience with top of the line customer service. I cannot thank Crosby enough for helping me!
I have shopped at The Wedding Shoppe for not only my own wedding, but for many of my friend’s weddings as well! I have always had a great experience and their huge selection always made it easy for us to find exactly what we wanted.
I loved it! They gave me an awesome bridal experience and found me the perfect dress and veil! So many great staff and beautiful dresses
I got my wedding dress & my bridal party got their dresses at the Wedding Shoppe & it was a great experience each time we went. When I got my wedding dress my consultant (Hannah) was absolutely fantastic! She listened to everything I wanted & tried her best to help me sort through my confusion. I found my perfect dress the second time I went & I made sure to request Hannah again.
For the bridesmaid dresses, there is a huge variety of colors which is great. We chose dark teal for our color & apparently that’s not easy to find. None of the consultants we worked with were pushy & they were all willing to bring the “no’s” back & find dresses we described. I would 100% recommend the Wedding Shoppe to anyone.
