    Beautiful Dress/ Best Experience Ever!

    Finding my dress at Arlene’s was by far one of my favorite wedding planning experiences. I would call every bride in the world personally if I could, and tell them that this is the ONLY bridal shop you will ever need to go to. I cannot say enough wonderful things about Debbie, Jewel, and the rest of the staff here. I went in for my dress appointment with a style in mind completely different than what I ended up with. I told Debbie what I was looking for, and she found me the exact dress to try on. When I realized I hated it on me, and no longer wanted that style, but didn’t know what else I would have liked, Debbie immediately knew what to show me- She pulled out a new Essence of Australia dress that had just come in, and told me that she just knew it was going to be perfect for me. I was skeptical at first, because it was not something I would have chosen on my own, but I decided to trust the professional and try it on. I was SO happy I did, and when I saw myself in my dress, I cried. She knew right away what I was going to like, and helped me pick a dress that quite literally felt like it was made for me. I knew right away that was my dress, and she came out with a sign and a bell, and did the whole “ are you saying yes to the dress?” thing. It was beautiful, and the whole experience was everything I could have wanted and more.
    I ended up bringing all of my bridesmaids there to get their dresses, and Debbie set up a whole “Sunday Funday” for us. We had the entire store to ourselves for 2 hours, and were able to bring snacks and champagne, and have such a great time finding all of the girls their dresses (I also had each girl in a different color and style, and they were all patient and great at finding the perfect dress for all 6 girls !)
    My dress arrived much earlier than expected, with no issues, and when I had to postpone my wedding for a year due to Covid, Debbie offered to store all of our dresses for the entire time without question. They are all just amazing there. Debbie and Jewel are an absolute dream team, and made this whole process not only easy and seamless, but also so fun and actually enjoyable! Thank you both so much for everything!

    Excellent Experience!

    Debbie and her team were amazing to work with! I chose the first dress she had me try on, and I loved wearing it on my wedding day. I am so happy I bought my dress and had it altered at Arlene's.
    I was a 'Covid' bride and had to postpone my wedding twice. Throughout the pandemic, Debbie was patient and flexible with storing and altering my dress. I had no issues and was confident that she would take good care of it.
    I would definitely recommend Arlene's Bridal to any bride in the North Jersey area! Working with Debbie is like working with family. She makes you feel so good! Thanks again for all of your help!
