I made an appointment at Ferri Formals over a year before my wedding just planning to try on a few things and get a sense for my style and what I liked/didn’t like. When I walked in I was greeted with individualized attention that really made me feel special for that bridal moment. I gave them my budget, we pulled dresses, and after trying on just 7 dresses I knew I had found the one! They were just as excited as I was and really made the experience something I will always remember. Every time I was in the store from the initial dress shopping, to picking out a veil, to the fittings, to the final pick up, everyone was so friendly and excited and wanted to hear all about my fiancé and my big day. It truly gave me that bridal feeling! I had my alterations done here as well and never once worried about anything, the seamstress was so open in communicating everything to me and walking me through every adjustment to my dress as well as helping me in and out of it each time I went in so it didn’t get ruined. Overall I recommend this place to everyone and in the last year and a half since I initially bought my dress, I’ve recommended 3 other brides go here, ALL of which bought their wedding dresses here as well! Brides who are on a budget also make sure you check here, they run sales ALL the time, check their social media pages!Sent on 03/19/2020

I received all the kindness, help and flexibility I could ever hope for from Ferri Formal and Bridal!!!
Ferri Formal and Bridal (and specifically MaryLu), got me the dress of my dreams for the absolute greatest wedding day ever! In January of 2018 I began looking at dresses at multiple stores in MA for my December 2019 wedding. One of the first dresses I ever tried on was a Lillian West dress that I loved- style 6422…. But, it being one of the very first I tried, I didn’t think it could be the one. At my next dress shopping trip, I purchased a different dress.
In between January of 2018 and December of 2019 I just knew in my gut that I had bought the wrong dress for me and my vision for my wedding day. At the beginning of December I began frantically searching everywhere on the internet for a used Lillian West dress I could buy in time for my wedding at the end of the month. I found Ferri Formal and Bridal online because they were having a Lillian West trunk show. I contacted them inquiring about the dress and MaryLu was the KINDEST woman ever. She heard my crazy story, helped me order a NEW Lillian West dress within my budget and was very patient with my fears and worries about the short timeline.There were 2 weeks to go until my wedding when my dress came in and arrived at the store. I drove to NY and MaryLu and team arranged for it to be altered THAT VERY DAY! I am so grateful for MaryLu’s kindness, help and support! I had a great experience and would recommend their store highly!

Ferri Formals and Bridals's reply:Hi Colleen! Thank you so much for writing such a wonderful review for our family owned business of thirty three years! I remember hearing how worried you were about your original purchase from another store. It was our honor to be able to custom fit your wedding dress. We really appreciate you and your Mom taking the trip to see us in New York. We love your wedding photos and used them to promote our Lillian West bridal trunk show! Wishing you much love and many happy years in your new life as a married couple! XOXO

Perspective from a father
We were referred to Ferri Formals and Bridals by another professional in the wedding industry. We had already decided to go there to search for a gown and the referral was the reassurance we wanted. We had previously met the owner, Marylu, at a bridal fair and were impressed by the presentation, including live models displaying some of her gowns.Sent on 02/28/2020
The shop is comfortable and not overwhelming. The staff were pleasant, accommodating, and knowledgeable about finding a gown that fits the woman and her vision. Marylu also took the time to give her expertise to guide the process, checking back a few times.
We left happy and satisfied with the selection, the service, and the value and will return again for the next formal occasion.
