Beautiful wedding dress & supportive consultant

I had an amazing experience at Bridal Beginning! Sara helped me find the perfect Watters dress for my wedding. It was a style I hadn't expected to choose, but she skillfully pulled a variety of dresses to help me figure out which elements I liked best and we ended up with the perfect dress (and veil). I absolutely recommend Bridal Beginning for your wedding dress shopping!

Destination Boutique

I cannot say enough good things about the Bridal Beginnings experience and specifically my consultant, Kristen. This is a boutique worthy of the travel if out of town. I am from Pittsburgh but living in New York and went all around both cities trying on dresses. I went to 11 appointments over 5 months and tried on at least 100 dresses, including 2 appointments at the infamous Kleinfelds. Let me tell you, these appointments didn鈥檛 hold a CANDLE to Bridal Beginnings. It鈥檚 a better experience, better dress selection, and provides a more personalized experience. On top of that, the consultants are world class. Kristen was so informative, would point out design elements to help me make a decision, perfectly translated my (terribly described) vision and somehow made it come to life in a one of a kind dress. I truly would not have been able to make a decision without Kristen. On top of that, she also helped my sister who is also engaged find her dress, and somehow made us both feel so beautiful and so special through our experiences. She navigated a tricky situation with professionalism and grace. 100000/100. Would highly recommend. Thank you Kristen and BB!! 鉂わ笍

Wonderful Experience!

Marisa, and Bridal Beginning, provided the absolute best experience for finding my wedding dress. From the minute I walked in Marisa was energetic, welcoming, and immediately found me my dream dress. She made the buying process easy and stress free, and was even able to help me decide on the perfect veil to go with my dress. Highly recommend Bridal Beginning to any bride!
