I absolutely loved this store! Although I did not find my dress, the service and consultants that work there were amazing. I would recommend this place to everyone looking for the wedding dress!

So professional, so flexible & great options
BEAUTIFUL dresses and fantastic customer service! They're very flexible - they made last minute changes to my dress without showing an ounce of stress.

Of all the vendors we worked with for our wedding, I can honestly say that Weddings 826 was my favorite! After an unsuccessful/disappointing weekend of trying to recreate "Say Yes To The Dress" with my mom & future mother-in-law in town, I popped into this cute little boutique by myself on a weekday afternoon (with no appointment) as a dejected bride-to-be. By that point I had been to at least 8 other stores and tried on upwards of 30 dresses. I knew the look i wanted but just wasn't finding it. The owner, Suzi, very sweetly greeted me when I walked in and offered to help me poke around their closets to see if I saw anything I liked. I did indeed find something that was *CLOSE* ... it was just missing some sparkle. Suzi assured me that their resident tailor, Deb, could add some custom beadwork that would get the dress the rest of the way to what I wanted. The design process with Deb was always fun and very collaborative. Never once did she make me feel like a bridezilla, no matter how much bling I asked her to add, changes I requested, or even when I changed my mind on a few things and then asked her to undo her hard work a week before the wedding. I made multiple visits to Weddings 826 over the course of many months and each time they greeted me with a smile and a friendly offer for a glass of champagne :) I'm beyond thrilled with how my dress turned out, and the the dress / customization / alterations were all very reasonably priced. To Suzi, Deb, and the rest of the staff - THANK YOU for making my wedding dress dreams come true!! I'll be back to visit xoxoxo
