The World's Best Client Experience

I cannot rave about this establishment enough!! My sister-in-law surprised me by taking me there after getting engaged, and from the moment you walk in the door, it is utter loveliness -- the lighting, the hardwood floors, the scent, the staff's warm welcome. You get treated like a queen! THEN I was given such a wonderfully selected range of gorgeous dresses, all within my price range. My ambassador was so patient, creative, and understanding of my desires for exploration. I had BEYOND the wedding-dress-shopping experience I'd dreamed of my entire life. It was SUCH a special day!! On top of all that, I had a very short engagement and it was going to be tight getting my dress altered and ready in time. I went twice to make my final selection, and once we chose The One, my ambassador talked me through every facet of the process and what to expect. The seamstress did SUCH an incredible job and fit my body perfectly! Because I had so little time, they also saved me by having some veils on hand (my ambassador hooked me up with the most stunning cathedral length veil!! it completely made the look come together) and earrings as well. I didn't have time to hunt down a million things so it was soo wonderful trying on everything together in real time! As if all that wasn't enough, they also PACKED my dress IN my suitcase before I flew out!! I couldn't believe how much they went above and beyond. Every time I'm in their shop I don't want to leave haha. They even have adorable bridal t-shirts and candles, which I purchased and highly recommend :) Thank you SO much Wedding Embassy!!!

Great dress selection, great people

The Wedding Embassy was fantastic! They have the nicest staff, a great space, and a beautiful selection of wedding gowns in different styles and for different budgets. They really know their stuff and helped me to find the perfect dress for my big day. I had no idea what I was doing so I really appreciated their direction and patience for trying on several dresses until landing on the right one. They had really good communication and transparency throughout the process about pricing, when things would be available, etc. I used someone else closer to me geographically for alterations but I would have totally used them for that, otherwise. They can do it all! Would highly recommend for all brides to be.

A wedding dress dream come true

I can’t even express how happy I was with my wedding dress AND the customer service I received the whole year prior to my wedding day. Megan is absolutely professional, confident and smart and will go above and beyond to make sure that all of her brides are more than happy with their wedding dresses. Our seamstress Angela was SOO talented. I ended up needed a bunch of extra fittings to fix little things here and there on my dress and Angela calmly and quickly fixed every little thing I wanted to be fixed. You can tell how much she loves and cares about her work. Also, I can’t even count how many compliments I got on the beauty of my dress… THANK YOU WEDDING EMBASSY!
