    Best Dress from the Best People

    I absolutely love Beautiful Brides! They are so personal and truly care that you find the perfect dress for you in any budget small or large. They have a huge variety of styles and that makes finding your perfect dress that much easier. The staff are such nice people and they take a lot of pride in the work they do. I got to wear my dream dress on the best day ever, and it’s because of their help I found it.

    Great selection and excellent customer service experience

    Beautiful brides was my last stop on the circuit of Wilmington bridal shops and I wish it had been my first. I walked in, nearly in tears, as I was not having much luck finding “the one”. The other shops had been disappointing in either service or selection within my budget range.

    That all changed when I stepped in the doors for my appointment and was greeted by Sandra and Shannon. They listened to my ideas of the dress I was searching for but I had also made it clear that I would take any of their suggestions. Their selection is beautiful and suitable for various budgets. At the time, there was a seasonal clearance sale happening, which I got to take advantage of. Also, Sandra has better rates for alterations (which she does herself) then some of the competitors, so I was able to expand my budget. Sandra was even willing to make some minor alterations/additions to dresses I was considering (added fabric and accents, etc...).

    In the end, they had me in a dress I hadn’t been looking for, but was prefect for me and the theme of my wedding, as well as a coordinating veil that accented the dress beautifully. I looked forward to and enjoyed the follow up appointments for minor alterations and undergarments test. Even better was their payment plan, which is worth asking about.
    Everything was set in advance for pickup and the dress was perfectly pressed for my wedding day.

    Thank you for the kind review. You rocked your gown and the style fit you perfectly! Congratulations Beautiful Bride!
