I had such a great time!
I was not looking forward to the dress experience at all because I was not even 100% sure what I wanted or what would look good on me. I worked with Allison at Aleana's Bridal and she was so great in helping me find what I wanted . I found my dress after one appointment and I'm so excited . They have great dresses at great prices and their staff is awesome. Definitely recommend coming here!Sent on 09/26/2020

My experience at Aleana’s Bridal was incredible! I went with my Mom just to initially browse for dresses, and I never thought I would find my dream dress at our first stop. I worked with Allison, and the level of attention, service, knowledge, and care she provided was nothing I have ever experienced before. Not only does she have great taste, you can tell that this is something she is truly passionate about and LOVES to do. Prior to my appointment, I was in communication with her and she had asked that I send her a few dresses and ideas of what I had in mind.Sent on 09/21/2020
When my Mom and I arrived for our appointment, she wasted no time and already had some dresses pulled. I tried on a few styles of what I thought I originally wanted, and then suddenly, Allison pulled this one dress that was something I never envisioned myself wearing, but I kept an open mind and tried it on. The dress was absolutely flawless, and from that moment I knew it was the one for me.
I am so glad that Aleana’a was my first (and last) stop! I truly do not think I would have gotten the attention to detail, level of service, and knowledge anywhere else. I am so thankful for the time Allison and the staff spent with us, educating us on dresses and providing their recommendations and keen insights. There was zero pressure to be rushed into buying something, and Allison spent the whole afternoon with us. I could not have done it without her and the team at Aleana’s!
Looking for dresses can sometimes be overwhelming, but I am so thankful that Allison made this such a stress-free and enjoyable experience. I honestly had so much fun. We had such a positive experience that we made an appointment the following week for my Mom, and she was able to find the most beautiful Mother of the Bride dress, again all thanks to Allison. I am eternally grateful for Allison and appreciate how much she did for both my Mom and I.
The pricing of the dresses (both bride and MOB) are incredibly reasonable and can work for all budgets. The pricing for alternations is very reasonable as well. My first fitting is in January and I cannot wait! If you are looking for a dress this is truly the best shop to go to!

Unlike any other bridal salon!
I went to 3 other bridal salons before going to Aleana's. Aleana's has the largest selection of any store I had been to, and completely personalized the experience to my taste! The first dress that was pulled was my dress, but the team at Aleana's made sure I had more than enough options to make absolutely sure. Thank you so much for your help! I cannot wait for the perfect dress to come in!Sent on 08/21/2019

Amazing experience and accommodating!
Since the first day I walked into Aleanas' shop I had a great experience! I didn't feel rushed and the woman who helped me really listened to what I liked as a fit and didn't overwhelm me with too many options. The fitting appointments were also great. Then Covid happened my last fitting I was 4 months away from my wedding day. Aleana called me and was so accommodating over the phone. She reassured me of everything and she made me feel so much better and I knew my dress was in good hands! I can't wait to go to my last fitting I know that in the end Aleana will make me a happy bride!Sent on 07/10/2020

Awesome Bridal Store
Aleana's Bridal has so many different styles to try on. The staff was friendly and accommodating. I showed them a picture of a dress I liked and they were able to show me very similar dresses. It was a great experience.Sent on 10/08/2019

Stunning dress for my special day!!
Let's start off by saying how much I hate shopping. I'm probably the worst girl ever, so the task of having to search for my wedding dress was absolutely daunting. I had the best Maid of Honor (my sister) booking appointments for bridal shops to check out & Aleana's was one of them -- Jamie was the one helping me figure out what my dream dress would be. She was incredibly knowledgeable of everything they had in the store & even took the time to ask about what venue I had chosen for our wedding (I didn't think that would be important at all). She was familiar with the space (Liberty Warehouse) as well as the rustic feel that we loved & it was amazing how she was able to take my vague ideas of what I think I would like in a dress & the style of our venue & found my dress in minutes!! The moment I tried it on, it felt right & it flattered my body type. To make sure I wasn't rushing the decision, I proceeded to check out a few other shops but it always came back to that dress ... it was the absolute best choice I ever made. I received nothing but the highest of compliments on it, including my husband upon "first look" on our wedding day (which is all I could ever ask for). The team at Aleana's bridal was amazing from beginning to end -- from saying yes to the dress to the phenomenal seamstress that made it fit like a glove on our big day. Thank you so much for making me look gorgeous on the BEST day of our lives!! :)Sent on 11/28/2019

Superb customer service
I had an amazing experience at Aleana's. The first dress I tried on was THE DRESS. Their customer service is superb. I had an issue with my dress during the wedding (not by them, but from company) and they handled it professionally and made sure I was compensated. They handled the situation with care and were understanding. I defintely recommend Aleana's Bridal.Sent on 12/29/2019

I had the best experience finding my wedding dress at Aleana's Bridal! From my first consultation to final fitting, the team was attentive and dedicated to helping me look and feel my best on the big day.Sent on 11/21/2019
I received so many compliments on my dress, veil and hair accessories (all purchased at Aleana's) and would highly recommend Aleana's Bridal to anyone looking for their dream dress!

Unbelievable customer service and selection of dresses!
The employees at Aleana's Bridal are some of the nicest women I've ever met!! They are so kind and accommodating, working with my schedule for alterations and to pick up my dress. They honestly make it feel like you're their only customer, even though they're unbelievably busy and have tons of other brides in the shop everyday!Sent on 11/09/2019
The shop has a beautiful selection of dresses, including a wide selection of lace gowns which was what I was looking for (other shops I visited had mostly dresses with beading). The dresses are all in great condition, too. I purchased a gorgeous Pronovias lace gown from them and felt like a princess on my big day once my alterations were completed.
I highly recommend visiting Aleana's Bridal - you won't be disappointed with their unbelievable customer service and beautiful selection of dresses!!

Best experience when looking for a wedding dress!
My whole experience was amazing from the moment I pulled into the parking lot all the way up to the moment I said "YES". And the woman working there are absolutely perfect I had such a great experience. I would absolutely recommend coming here for your wedding dress. I am still obsessing over my beautiful gown. Thank you so much for all your help!Sent on 10/24/2019

Best in the game
To me, the dress & the DJ are the two most important parts of a wedding. Aleana got the dress portion so right and knocked it out of the park!
I can't say enough about this experience. I actually didn't even go to any other shop because they had what I had wanted all along. They are a Pronovias shop, my favorite bridal designers. Since I knew I had wanted a Pronovias dress (just not sure which) I decided to come here and not worry about tax (like you'd have to pay at Kleinfeld's) and enjoy the fact that it was close to home. Anyway, the amount of customer service received was absolutely incredible.
10 or so dresses later I had found my most perfect dress and myself and my family were treated like royalty. How rare is it in the bridal industry that the shop owner comes out and helps and greets her customers? Aleana herself was incredible, helping every step of the way. Never being critical or negative, and understanding that I am petite and certain alterations and choices were necessary! (her being as petite as me certainly helped)
For my next couple of fittings, Aleana was there again every step of the way and I put my trust in my seamstress, who got every detail so spot on, I nearly cried. I came to my fittings alone, as my family lives down the shore and it was hard to travel during the weeknights for the fittings. They took great great care of me and it was never an issue.
I also purchased their only (last) cape veil for this dress which was the absolute show-stopper of the entire wedding. Everyone came up to me after saying how much they loved it.
I can't say enough great things, all I can say is, go see for yourself. and let the professionals do their job! Trust me they know what's best.
Thank you Aleana and Staff!Sent on 09/29/2019

Custom-Made Dream Dress!
I will forever be grateful to Aleana's Bridal for creating my dream dress. I chose a dress by Rebecca Ingram/Maggie Sottero because I fell in love with it. However, it had one problem: it was sleeveless. I could see the dress in my mind, and I explained to Lana and her incredible team the vision I had in my mind. I wanted bubble sleeves, and Lana created them from thin air! She drew up a custom pattern to my exact measurements, including sleeve length, which I wanted a little longer than usual. She matched the tulle so perfectly that it looks like the dress had always been that way! She ordered the same appliques which were on my gown, and cut them and placed them so perfectly onto the sleeves. I also gave Lana and her team a piece of my mother's gown for my "something old", and she found the perfect place for it on my gown. It was sewn right onto my gown, and my mother was brought to tears when she saw it. Not only did they customize the dress to make it a dream come true for me, but they also made it fit like a glove. The bustle was perfectly crafted, and they even changed the crystal buttons to the covered satin ones I really preferred. No request was impossible! I was impressed with the selection of gowns at Aleana's, also. All of my bridesmaids' gowns all came from Aleana's and my mother-in-law even found the perfect gown there. Lana and her team offer the most personalized, professional, top-notch bridal boutique. They had everything I needed, and they worked with me throughout multiple visits. I worked with them for months, and I am so glad I did. I wish I could dream up another fancy party just so I can ask Lana to create another custom gown for me! Everyone is so kind, so accommodating, and so honest. This is their business, and they do it well. I looked at 10 different bridal boutiques across the state, and the moment I walked in and saw her gowns, I knew I was working with someone who chooses each dress with her future brides in mind. Every bead, lace detail, and layer of fabric is considered at this shop, and it shows. I'm so proud that my gown came from Aleana's.Sent on 08/09/2019

Brides -- save yourself the headache and go here first :)
Where do I begin with this absolutely amazing place?! Before finding Aleana's Bridal I had been to several other bridal shops and tried on countless other gowns, none of which were what I envisioned myself in for my wedding day. I was tired of pushy saleswomen who claimed to "just want me to be happy" but in reality just wanted commission from a sale. Other stores did not listen to me and only pushed one type of gown on me. I was ready to give up and just buy an ordinary white gown and call it a day.
Enter Aleana's :) I was pleasantly surprised from the moment I walked in the door - the environment is laid back yet professional, and I did not feel any of the pressure I felt at other stores. A great atmosphere here all the way around, and you are given plenty of time without being rushed. Everyone at Aleana's is amazing. I told them what I had envisioned for my gown and they showed me styles that fit my description, and even allowed me to pick out some gowns myself to try on. They truly worked with me to find what gown would look best on my particular body type/shape. I was convinced I did not want a spaghetti strap gown, but they showed me this very unique one that I absolutely loved, and it ended up being the dress for me due to how flattering it was.
Please allow the ladies here to help you...you may think you want a particular style but they might have something in mind that they believe will be much more flattering for you, while still incorporating your wants and needs. Every bride is unique and no bridal shop understands that more than Aleana's. It doesn't hurt to at least try on what they suggest - and I'm so happy I did.
Lana and Jamie are total sweethearts and made the process a very enjoyable one for me...and I'm someone who really wasn't thrilled with the idea of trying on wedding gowns.
I also got my bridesmaids gowns here. Ginny, Lana and Jamie all were wonderful with helping us choose a gown that everyone would be happy with. Although there was one or two mixups with sizes once the dresses came in, Lana and Jamie were quick to let me know about it and the issue was resolved immediately. They truly care about their brides and clients. They do not offer alterations for bridesmaids gowns, but that's true of most bridal shops. My girls got their dresses altered on their own and everything worked out fine.
The seamstress was also wonderful, however I can't remember her name. She was a pleasure to work with and did a wonderful job of making my wedding gown fit me perfectly.
I cannot recommend this place highly enough. Do yourself a favor and go here, don't waste hours of your life in other bridal stores that don't actually care about you like I did. So happy I finally found Aleana's. Thank you Lana and Jamie for everything! :)Sent on 08/15/2019

Best bridal salon!
I had a great experience at Aleana’s! Everyone was really nice and knowledgeable — Jaime even found my dream dress with her first pick! She also suggested a change to the neckline that really made my dress “the one” for me. All of the fittings went well and I couldn’t have asked for a better experience! I would definitely recommend Aleana’s to any bride.Sent on 07/14/2019

Lovely bridal store!
The women are all amazing, alterations were seamless. I found my dress after trying A LOT on and was shown dresses completely the opposite of what I wanted in my head—thank goodness because I found my dream dress! Wouldn’t change a thing about my experience with Aleana’s—everything was perfect!Sent on 06/02/2019

When looking for my perfect wedding dress, I went to numerous stores, and must have tried on 100 different dresses. I finally found my dress, a Demetrios ballgown; a very detailed and intricate dress, with beading throughout, many layers of lace and tulle, and a beautiful long train. However, not everyone carried this designer at the time I needed to purchase the dress. I was referred to Aleana’s and upon meeting with Lana, I instantly felt comfortable and confident that they were the right bridal boutique to successfully conquer the altering of this dress. Though they did not carry this designer at the time (they do now!! So go check them out!!!) they were still able to order the dress for me.
The staff at Aleana’s fall nothing short of sainthood, and god bless them for agreeing to alter my dress; from the hem, to the waistline, to the bodice fitting just right. I can’t even imagine how many hours and hard labor went into these alterations. I got married on May 17, 2019. I went to pick up my dress the week before but we found that it still needed to be hemmed just a tiny bit more. And when I say a tiny bit more, I literally mean just a smidge more, no more than 1/8in. So I left my dress there and went back the following Wednesday (my wedding now less than 48 hours away), tried on my dress, and it was ABSOLUTELY PERFECT.
All in all, I cannot say enough good things about Aleana’s; the staff always polite, welcoming, engaging, accommodating. The alterations work by the seamstresses, simply flawless. Their customer service is unmatched, and ensuring that their clients are happy is their top priority. The amount of effort and labor that they put into the dresses, to ensure the client leaves with their perfect wedding dress, is something you won’t find just anywhere. Wedding planning is stressful enough, purchasing your dress from Aleana’s will allow you one less thing to stress or worry about. You will NOT regret choosing Aleana’s for your wedding dress. You will, however, regret NOT choosing them!
Thank you ladies, sooo much, for all the work that went into my dress! Because of you, I had the perfect wedding dress to match a perfect wedding day!!Sent on 07/11/2019

Found the Wedding Dress of My Dreams!
I live in Paramus and when I started looking for dresses I did a simple google search to see what boutiques were near by. Aleana's was the second store I visited and I did not have to look any further. I found my dress within moments of walking into the boutique. I had custom work done to my dress and Lana went above and beyond finding fabric, making bracelets out of fabric from my dress and just making every detail so perfect. Jamie was so sweet every time I came into the bridal shop which must have been 100 times to try on my dress and make adjustments. I couldn't imagine finding my dress somewhere else. Thank you to Aleana's for making my wedding experience so special!Sent on 04/11/2019

I couldn't have been happier with the quality and the service I experienced at Aleana's Bridal. From the day I tried on dresses to the day I picked my dress up, the ladies were always pleasant, timely and knowledgeable. Lana has an amazing selection of dresses for all styles and desires, and her team was beyond helpful. Honestly the biggest headache could have been alterations - and I can't rave about her enough! She was meticulous, seeing things before I did, sweet, and everything was perfect the day of. I couldn't have been happier to have purchased my dress here!Sent on 11/26/2018

I didn't struggle to find my dress, in fact I found it right away in the first store I walked into, but I did struggle in identifying that it was "the one." It wasn't until I had an appointment here with my Mom that the entire team made me feel like the beautiful bride I was waiting to feel like, and that the dress was meant for me. It wasn't salesy or pushy (I experienced that elsewhere), and every step of the process from ordering, to altering, to picking up was seamless. The salon had the selection I was looking for, was professional, in an easy location, and the owner is the right amount of hands on. You can tell the depth of her experience and it instilled a lot of confidence. Thank you all so much for making my dreams come true!Sent on 01/09/2019

When looking for my wedding dress, I went to 4 places and my last stop was Aleana's. From the moment we got there we were taken care of like family. They helped with choosing the style and just about everything else we could think of. They were very attentive to what I was looking for and what I wanted.

Aleana's Bridal helped to make one of the most stressful bridal tasks enjoyable and fun. They have a gorgeous selection of dresses and accessories. Before stumbling upon Aleana's, I had went to many other bridal shops who made me feel pressured into purchasing a dress. Even though I had started my bridal dress hunt a bit late, there was no push to purchase a dress at Aleana's and they were extremely patient with me. Lana and the other staff made a lot of effort to understand my needs and wants and I really trusted their guidance. I am so fortunate to have worked with such a warm, supportive, friendly, and genuine team of individuals who truly listen and care about what you want your dress to look like and that you are comfortable in what you are wearing. I had such an incredible experience with them, as they were extremely accommodating and super helpful. I am so grateful for their work as well as the time that they had put into altering the dress. They had been extremely oriented to detail and care to make the dress look perfect. Their seamstress, Dolores, works wonders! She created a beautiful gown that had made me feel like a princess on my wedding day. I highly recommend this place!Sent on 10/20/2018
