Erika knows which styles work for her clients and takes pride in helping them look their best. She was honest and incredibly professional - no gimmicks, no attempts to price gauge. Erika was incredibly responsive through the entire process. Her tailor/seamstress did excellent work. Despite hours of dancing, my dress, tailoring, and train remained intact and looking great. I highly recommend Be Unique Boutique for those seeking individualized attention.Sent on 08/25/2015

Prior to trying Be Unique, I had a very specific vision of what my wedding dress should look like and had visited a number of stores in Manhattan, but nothing that I found seemed right.Sent on 07/20/2014
Upon arriving at Be Unique, I vowed to try any dress that Erika recommended--and I sure am glad I did. She suggested a dress that I wouldn't have gravitated to myself, but when I came out with it on my mom and maids of honor all started crying. It was "the one" and without Erika's keen sense, I never would have found it.
From the first call to reserve an appointment to all of the fittings, Erika and her seamstress were so professional, straight forward, and helpful. I'm so grateful for all of their help!

Working with Erica to find my perfect dress was so much fun. She has so many beautiful gowns for brides, bridesmaids, flower girls and moms. We all looked forward to going to her store to try on our dresses. This was the first store I looked in and I am so happy we all found what we were looking for. She was helpful from day one even though we didnt have an appt and I had no idea what I was looking for. Sure enough Erica showed me and my MOH one dress for her and we fell in love with it. She looked great as did the rest of my girls. I loved that Erica always knew what we needed and had any accessories we could ever want. I would highly recommend Ericas Boutique to all my family and friends. I can't imagine having bought my dress anywhere else.Sent on 10/03/2011

Erika was a pleasure to work with. She personally listened to what I wanted and picked out a bunch of wedding dresses for me at my first fitting. I found one that was within budget and beautiful. She was always available to change my fitting appointments, and her on-site seamstress made each fitting a breeze. I was incredibly happy with the final result - and while I felt like alterations were too much money, I could see the level of detail, care, and personalization that went into it to make it completely custom to my body. I also LOVED the veil she picked for me that matched my dress. Thank you!!Sent on 05/10/2019

Found a beautiful dress here for my beach wedding. Erica was extremely helpful and knew just what I was looking for in my price range. I never felt rushed and my mom and sister felt welcomed as well.Sent on 06/27/2015
Alterations were in the "average" price range but very well done. They only do them on weekends which worked well for my schedule but that's the only downside if you have a different work schedule, etc.
Would absolutely recommend if you live in the area!

Erica was extremely wonderful. She was sweet, kind and so helpful. She knew exactly what I needed for my body type and how to make my dress absolutely perfect. She was so easy to get a hold of and work with. She is truly a wonderful person, and I would recommend everyone going to her store for any kind of formal occasion!!Sent on 10/31/2013

I loved working with the owner Erika. She helped me pull together a red carpet look. I had my red carpet moment finally. From my dress, to the custom jewelry, to my clutch - she provided the type of advice that an expensive stylist would have offered. Everyone at our event said I looked like a princess! I know I have Erika to thank for that incredible compliment. Thank you Erika. I could not do it without you! I will be back when my next son gets engaged!

Both Erica aand her seamstress Florence were a pleasure to work with. Gown selection, quality & service were all top notch. I wouldn't go anywhere else for an ensemble for an important event!Sent on 04/10/2013

I was quite nervous ordering my wedding dress online but when I received the dress, I was pleasantly surprised by how beautiful it was! And it arrived much earlier than I expected. I was very happy with the service & how helpful Erika was!Sent on 05/12/2013

I came to Be Unique because I saw that they carried a designer I was interested in, Cristiano Lucci.. I called the boutique randomly to see if they carried the specific dress I was interested in. Although they didn't carry it, I decided to make a last minute appointment to go in and try on some of the other dresses from the designer. The owner was very flexible and squeezed me in for an appointment that afternoon. When I got there, I felt completely unwelcome. I was shown a couple of dresses from the designer and decided to try them on. While I was trying on the dress, I had little to no help in getting into the dress. The owner made no attempt in helping me zip the back, and didn't give a modesty piece in order to cover my butt so I could go out and show my sister the dress. I was too embarrassed to come out of the dressing room in fear of exposing myself to the other people in the boutique. At this point I had been to countless other boutiques and every single one of them provided a modesty piece and clips in order to clip the dress closed.... When I decided that I wasn't in love with any of the dresses I tried on, I asked the owner if she had any other dresses in mind for me. She said, and I quote..."Not Really." At that point I decided to leave the boutique. I felt that since the owner knew I had tried on other dresses at other boutiques, she felt no need to show me any customer service at all. I was very upset in leaving, and I wouldn't recommend this business to any of my friends.Sent on 07/26/2018
