    Incredible Experience!

    I couldn't be more pleased with the incredible experience that I had at Bridal Beginning! My mom and I drove from the DC area to Pittsburgh because they carried every designer that I was looking to try on so I had high hopes. We were really impressed with their COVID policies and the safety measures they took when we arrived. Sara was my consultant and she went above and beyond in helping me decide which dress was "the dress". We started with my Wishlist then she had me try on various other dress styles and designers to make sure that my top 3 dresses were exactlywhat I wanted. The time that Sara took to understand my style and vision for my wedding helped make my dress selection process that much smoother. Ultimately I said "yes to my dress" and Sara made my boho dreams come true! Thank you Sara and Bridal Beginning for making my experience perfect! I can't wait to see my dress on my wedding day!

    LOVE! Worth a trip if from out of town!

    I really loved my team (Marisa was my consultant) at Bridal Beginning. I drove from NY to PA just to look at Berta dresses and the team here made it a wonderful experience. I was nervous about finding a dress because I am a highly indecisive person and didn't want to drive 8 hours to not find a dress; I was worried that the hour and a half appointment wasn't going to be enough time and I was correct about this, but the ladies at bridal beginning were wonderful and allowed me to stay significantly longer in order to find the perfect dress. I don't even know how many dresses I tried on because I lost count and I tried the same two dresses on and off for about 2-3 hours and put each dress on probably 10 different times before I finally figured out which one would be the perfect dress with some minor changes. The team here was so wonderful and didn't make me feel bad for trying things on a million times. I would recommend everyone to make the drive to go to bridal beginning it was a great experience. If I had to make any critique about the experience it would be that their rooms make it so you don't feel like the experience is super private. You can hear other consultants and brides from other rooms talking. But despite this my experience was amazing and would go back a million times; I can't wait for my first fitting!

    Amazing Experience!!

    I am truly grateful for the amazing service, support and attention Gina (and quite frankly the rest of the team to boot) had provided me on a very special day (x2). Not only did Gina put my mind at ease, but she was really invested in my happiness. She truly cares about her Brides & is passionate about what she does. I would recommend her over and over again to anyone who wants to feel special, have a positive, fun and exciting experience and to find the most amazing dress for your big day! The owner, Pam was so accommodating and invested in my experience - I am thankful she was able to share this with me as well! If you are looking for a place that will bring the "WOW" to your big day, Bridal Beginning will make that happen
