I was so blown away with the one on one experience I had here. It did help that I made my appointment first thing in the morning, on a friday (ladies take note!) but because of this, it was just me and my group in the store. I tried on numerous styles, and they zoned in very quickly on what I liked and kept me within my budget area. Within my appointment, I found "the one!"
Today I had an amazing experience at Pearl with Britney who was a tremendous help in making my final choice. She was so easy to work with and made the entire experience so enjoyable and stress free. I would highly recommend this place.
I love everything about Pearl Bridal! For such a small space, they truly have everything you could ask for. They will find perfect dresses for you to try on, and make sure you feel comfortable and like a true bride! The man who does the alterations there is also great, and he fixed my dress up exactly how I wanted! I would recommend Pearl Bridal for anyone looking for a unique bridal shopping experience.
I found the perfect gown at Pearl, with the help of Ryan. She listened to me, and gave me only gowns that fit my budget. She also picked out a belt that really made the dress look complete, and gave me lots of options. I had a great time shopping here and decided to bring my bridesmaids back to pick out their dresses. Ryan, again, helped us find exactly what we were looking for. Since I bought my dress at Pearl, my bridesmaids all saved 10% on their dresses, which helped make them more affordable. I will say that my dress took a very long time to come in. It was a full nine months until it came, so I don't recommend waiting to shop for a dress, because you are going to need to leave time for it to come in. The bridesmaids' dresses took a really long time to come in too, and they were all pretty much too small for the girls, so that was unfortunate. It says clearly that there are no exchanges or returns allowed and all sales are final, so when we were looking for help and feeling like they had been mis-measured, there wasn't much they could do. So just a warning to make sure you stay the same exact size you were when you ordered your dress for the whole 9 months it takes to come in, because if it's too small, you're pretty much out of luck. Luckily for me, my dress fit amazing, and looked beautiful. Everyone at my wedding commented on it, saying how beautiful and unique it was, and that it looked like it was literally made for me. It's unfortunate that my bridesmaids had a bad experience with their dresses not fitting, but my personal experience with my gown was excellent.
We went with Pearl because it is near where my parents live, so even though we live in Georgia, they would be able to drive the gown to our destination wedding in Montreal. My budget was between 1K with some flexibility to 1.5K, I described the type of dress I thought I liked, and so we began. The first few dresses I tried on were very pretty, however higher than my estimated price range (which, by the way, I hadn't even considered tailoring costs at that point!), until my ultimate choice came out, which was perfectly what I wanted both in style and price. Great!
I flew back north for my tailoring twice, once with my sister (my MoH). The tailor was professional but we joked around too. The second time I came back for my final fitting, I tried on both my sister's (we're twins) dress as well as my own, since she lives in Hungary and couldn't be back herself. Her dress was way too long - probably about an inch and a half off. So that needed to be fixed, which I think we might have paid twice for, even though it wasn't done right the first time..? I'm not sure. My dress also needed some of the layers added into the bustle, so I think I paid for that work twice as well? Again, I'm not sure since I didn't receive an itemized copy of the services, just some numbers scribbled on a piece of paper.
During the wedding, my dress kept coming unbustled. Maybe we should have been pinching the eye hooks closed, but that was definitely a point of frustration. Sitting down was when they would come undone, so we would have to fix them intermittently throughout the night.
Overall, I'm pleased with the work done at Pearl Bridal, but I wish the tailoring costs were a bit more transparent. Were we paying for errors/oversights to be fixed, in addition to the original cost of the tailoring? I'm not sure. Ultimately I paid roughly $350 for my dress to be tailored and $110 for my MoH's dress to be tailored.
Pearl Bridal Boutique was very helpful with all things wedding dress. I bought my dress here, but my wedding was down in Virginia. Everyone at Pearl was very helpful and flexible when scheduling my fittings since I had to come up from Virginia to do them. My uncle drove the dress down from Massachusetts a few days before the big day -- and Pearl packed my dress up so perfectly that even with eight layers of tulle, it somehow wasn't wrinkled after the seven hour drive.
I am very pleased that I went with my daughter to Pearl Bridal Boutique. The professionalism and attention to our wishes and variety of dresses was amazing. From the moment we walked in to the time we picked up the wedding dress they were great to work with. Thank you!!
I found my dream princess, over the top dress at Pearl Bridal Boutique! My sister previously went to Pearl to find her wedding dress so I of course had to look there first. It was only the third dress I tried on and I was blown away. They were able to keep my dress in a back room for months after it came in because I was having it altered. The altering is extra but it was 100% worth it! It was very easy to schedule fittings and when you arrive, you are given one on one attention. Couldn't say enough about how professional and friendly everyone was. I also went to one of their trunk shoes to buy gorgeous Haute Bride jewelry at a discount. My pictures came out stunning because of the dress and jewelry I purchased through Pearl! Thank you!
The most stress free and easy part of my wedding planning was working with Pearl! We found the dress the first try and had it altered with their team.
The atmosphere at Pearl is one of pure relaxation and happiness. Even with other brides going in and out, you always felt like each moment was about you.
The prices were exceptional - I could not believe how beautiful and affordable my dress was (and that was definitely a relief!)
Thanks Pearl for giving me the dress of my dreams!
Thank you so much for your kind words! I'm so happy you enjoyed your experience with us. You were a great bride to work with. Send us some pictures when you get a chance, we would love to see how you looked on your big day!
I would not recommend Pearl for bridesmaid dresses. It is clear that they are in the business of helping the bride and could care less about the bridesmaids. They were ignored during their appointments, and were often treated quite rudely. There were also issues with the sizes ordered that could have created quite a problem. Bridesmaid dresses might be cheaper than the bride's dress but they add up quickly because they are often many of them.... so there is no excuse to snub these customers. If you are a bride getting your dress here please don't make your bridesmaids go through Pearl. The discount is not worth the stress!!!!
Pearl is amazing! Staff and owner are so friendly and service is out of this world. They make you feel your best and are very supportive!
While the staff is very friendly I had a horrible experience with my dress. I ordered my bridesmaid dress, lost weight , and then when I finally got the dress in it didn't fit. I called Pearl up and told them that I was no where close to the size they ordered me and I was told I only needed minor adjustments so I went in for alterations. When I left the appointment for alterations I asked for the price and they told me I was all set... come to find out when I picked up my dress I had to pay $110 in alterations for their mistake...and even still when I was asked how I felt in the dress it was still too tight and all I was told was that it looked fine.. well I didn't feel fine I felt like I couldn't breathe.. DONT SHOP HERE! I ended up paying over $300 for a dress I will wear once.. total waste of my time and money.
Pearl bridal has such a sweet setting that made me feel like I was a bride! I got my dress, accessories and my bridesmaids dresses there. They had a great variety for my bridesmaids. They also helped me customize my dress to be my own- we changed belts until I fell in love. Ryan the owner had great taste and a professional attitude!
Pearl was wonderful to work with. They have a nice selection of gowns, all very reasonably priced. I worked with Crystal at my first appointment and she was great. She was very patient with me, as I liked all of the dresses I had tried on, but just didn't love any of them. As I was just about to give up she pulled "the one." I had gone back a few other times to try on jewelry and veils and worked with someone else (not Crystal or Ryan) who wasn't too helpful. She tried, but she just didn't have a good idea of what I was looking for. I had wanted a specific style of veil and she didn't know what it was. Not a big deal, but if you're working in the bridal industry you should know what you're working with. They did not have the style veil I had wanted, but neither did any other local boutiques and they showed me a beautiful alternative that with a minor alteration could be the style I had wanted. I received so many compliments, not only on my dress, but also my veil on my wedding day. Ethan, from alterations, was amazing and my dress fit perfectly. When it comes to styling (jewelry, shoes, veils etc) ask for his advice! He is honest and knows his stuff!
All I can say is I am so glad I purchased my gown from Pearl! Ryan, the owner, is amazing. All I did was tell her what I liked (no pictures to demonstrate) and how I was hoping to look, and she found several gowns that fit exactly what I was looking for - and they were all in my price range. I stress out very easily when it comes to wedding stuff, and she never hesitated to give me a call or e-mail back to let me know when my gown and accessories were supposed to be delivered. I never felt worried about whether she had things under control. She is a really nice person, and she's very professional. I highly recommend Pearl Bridal.
I loved working with Ryan and the Pearl Bridal boutique team! We even had a mishap with my dress (designer sent my dress 5 inches too short) and Ryan took control and resolved the issue. I only received my dress one week later. I had lace cap sleeve straps with a keyhole back added to my dress by the guy who does alterations there (wish I could remember his name!). He was amazing!! He made these cap straps out of extra lace I had ordered and it absolutely MADE the dress. Pearl has a beautiful shop and the staff are more than accomodating and sweet.
