Just found the gown yesterday at Strut! I'm so thrilled with it. I wanted something slightly fitted, but that hid some of my flaws. They had THE ONE. So glad I went there. Thank you to Sarah my consultant who helped, and also made sure we stayed on budget. We had picked out 2 beautiful dresses, but they were over budget. She took me aside and notified me they were over budget and gave me the opportunity to say yes or no. I really appreciated that. They also do some great things for brides. You can put 25% down then pay the other 25% in 30 days to make the 50% to order. Much more financially feasible for me. If you find the gown on your first visit you get a discount on the gown. Not only did I come in $500 under budget, but I also got the additional discount. The only down side is the selection is small, but that obviously wasn't a problem for me. Well worth the 2 hour drive from Tucson.
Wonderful selection, friendly staff, clean environment, reasonable prices, beautiful studio. I would recommend all plus size brides to come her verses David's bridal. I can't wait to see what I look like on my wedding day!! Thank you strut!!
Strut Bridal in Tempe was amazing! I thought for sure being plus size I wouldn't be able to find anywhere that actually had dresses for me to try on! I met with Danielle and she was absolutely amazing! I was completely blown away at the dresses she picked out after only a few minutes of me describing what I was looking for. I loved every single dress she brought out! She was so amazing and knew me so quickly that the very first dress she had me try on was the one! I would recommend them for absolutely anyone. It was a great little shop and it was such an unforgettable experience. I could never thank Danielle enough for dealing with me, my 2 bridesmaids and the moms for the night! It was a blast!
Strut gave me a bridal experience I never expected. I went to the run of the mill dress shop first and I tried on the 3 dresses allotted to the plus size rack. I was so disappointed til I found Strut. Not only did they have every style of dress available, the price was right and the service was top notch. Thanks Tomiko and Strut for my first real bridal moments!
I'm a touch of a quandary as a client. I'm 5'0 and a size 20-22, being both petite and plus sized is a challenge when looking for clothing of any type, much less a wedding dress. So when my future mother-in-law said she wanted to take me dress shopping I was both excited and nervous that the place wouldn't have anything that was either short enough for me, or made for a plus-sized bride in mind and worst of all... I would feel like a whale on a day when I was supposed to feel beautiful.
What I didn't know was that we were going to Strut, which specializes in brides’ size 12+, stepping in was refreshing and worth the 15-minute challenge to find a park. The attendant who helped me was named Becca and the first thing she did was help me find the right size corset, (40D, who knew?) and start trying on dresses, she let me move away from the A-Line and setting on something much more fitting to my figure that makes me feel like royalty when I put it on, Even the price was very reasonable and my dress will be coming in in February I said yes to the 5th dress on my first visit to a bridal salon, something I never thought could be possible thanks to the wonderful women at Strut.
Tamiko helped me fin the perfect dress this was my first stop and I didn't expect to find something on my first try but I did! My wedding isn't till October 2016 but I was told for a little extra they would hold my dress till alterations and after the wedding preserve it for me and the price for that was unheard of anywhere else. My mom and sisters were able to bring champagne and snacks while they sat and waited I couldn't have asked for a better experience thank you Tamiko thank you Strut!
I came into Strut before anywhere else and was happy to have had to only go to 1 place. Ann and Danielle were very professional, fun, and listen to your wants. I was so happy with the first dress that the others I tried on didn't compare! When I put it back on I lost it! That was my dress! They found me my gown on the first try! I said yes to an Allure Ivory v-neck lace bodice, blush tulle skirt, and fully beaded blinged out back! I would highly suggest Strut to any curvy woman looking for a dress that you won't find at Davids Bridal. They had so many beautiful gowns for all figure types!
So helpful and professional. Definitely the best experience ever!!!
I pushed my wedding date up and needed a dress off the rack. I had a very specific style in mind and Ashley showed me everything that I would like. She was very friendly and personable and we just "clicked." Due to no fault on Ashley's part I couldn't find a wedding dress that fit my exact needs. It was my fault I waited so long. But because of the great service I received, I did go back for a cocktail dress when they had a sale on bridesmaids dresses. Hopefully I will not need another wedding dress, but I would definitely go back for special occasion dresses.
My experience at Strut was amazing!! Ashley helped me find the dress of my dreams. The staff gave me their full attention and had great positive energy the entire visit. They opperate all aspects of buisness perfessionaly while keeping my experiance special. I will recommend them to anyone. Thanks girls!
I started wedding dress shopping at a name brand store because they had plus sizes available. Well they're samples weren't even big enough to fully put on. How am I supposed to purchase a dress without even knowing what it's going to look like on? I left disappointed and a little discouraged. A close friend of mine found Strut on the internet and saw all of the great reviews. She sent me all of the info right away. That same day my future mother in law and I called Strut, we spoke with Beka and she gave us an appointment for the same day. When we got there, Beka sat down with me and got to know what I was looking for. Although they did not have many tea length dresses, Beka really understood what I was looking for. She brought out this beautiful dress with a lace top and I tried it on. I fell in love with it and after trying on a few other dresses I put that lace one on again and was certain that was my dress! She explained how I could alter it to really make it what I want. Beka even gave me different ideas on how to add some color to tie it in with the wedding theme! The whole staff was super helpful, welcoming and friendly! I can't wait to book my alterations appointment with them!
I am a size 30. Strut Bridal truely does specialize in plus sizes. The dresses you try on in the showroom are all plus sized so it's so easy to find the gown of your dreams! The staff is courteous and encouraging!! I also found my bridesmaids dresses their too. They have dresses that compliment all body shapes and sizes!
Strut is hands down the best place to find your PERFECT wedding dress, period. As a plus-size woman lusting over beautiful gowns in wedding magazines, and other local Bride Boutiques around the valley I had no idea how hard it was going to be to actually go into a store and ask to try on dresses and being limited to the 5 or so gowns they had that would actually go over my hips. Or trying on a dress that has a 12 inch gap in the back because its the largest size they had for you to try on! Then I found Strut Bridal Salon in Tempe! Not only did they have a HUGE assortment of gowns in a price range all customers would be comfortable with, but the environment was comfortable, the staff was friendly and congratulatory, and EVERY single dress I tried on zipped!!!!! The woman that helped me was named Ashley, and she truly understood what it was I was shopping for, she could speak to the details of every dress I tried on, and truly understood me as her customer. GREAT customer service these days is a rarity, and Strut, and Ashley made finding my PERFECT wedding dress one of the best days of my life. I cried from excitement, and so did my mom. :)
Thank you Strut!!!
This is the bridal experience I dreamt of. My mom and friends joined me for my appointment, and were welcomed into the salon. Tamiko listened to what I wanted in a dress, and pulled several dresses that fit my vision within my budget. However, she also pulled THE dress. I didn't know it until I had gone through all of the dresses once, but when I tried it on again, it was clear that it made me look beautiful and amazing. I loved trying on dresses that were not too small for me, it made for a fun experience. The shop has been wonderful to work with during the process of ordering the dress, and I'm looking forward to meeting with the seamstress next week for alterations (I've seen some of her bustling work on Yelp... outstanding). They are always running specials, so I'd recommend coming in ready to find your dress and purchase. Take a look at their blog and price range (I think its roughly $500-2500) so you know what types of dresses they stock. I found a lot of dresses in my budget, and it was nowhere near the top of the range. All in all, a great experience!
I highly recommend Strut! I loved every minute of my experience! Stephanie made it so easy and an absolute joy! I honesty didn't know what to expect as it was my first attempt at looking for a wedding dress and the thought of it kind of overwhelmed me. However, as soon as I walked in, I was put at ease and the fun began! There were so many options - Stephanie let me try on everything I wanted to try, but she really did great at knowing exactly what to pull for my body type and heard me when I explained the style I was going for. Made it so simple to find "the dress". :-) I also want to share that I'm getting the mother of the bride and bridesmaid's dresses here too since they are able to get them in any size (from 0 and up)! Makes my life much easier knowing we are all in good hands! P.S. The prices are AWESOME!
I had visited MANY dress stores looking for my perfect dress...On a fluke I made an appointment at Strut Bridal. The night before my mother & sister, who were supposed to come with me, got really sick, so I went by myself. Tamiko was AMAZING! We had a blast, and i found the most amazing dress ever! It was such a positive experience, I would go back and buy a dress there for a party from their selection of bridesmaids dresses. They were nice, and not pushy about me walking out with a dress, which took alot of the pressure off. It was a great experience.
