I just said YES TO THE DRESS at Bijou! What a pleasant experience! I heard of Bijou from a friend and figured I'd give it a try. I went to the shop with ZERO expectations of buying anything, especially after an unpleasant visit from another boutique a few weeks prior. I went thinking that I would never be able to find the dress I love in my budget well I was so wrong! Despina is the lady who helped me and allowed me and my family to pull dresses we liked. She knew exactly what I wanted and saved the best dress for last. Even though I was not planning on it, there was no way I could pass up this opportunity to buy the dress of my dreams in my budget. I highly recommend this boutique to any bride. Also ask for an appointment with Despina- she really knows her stuff. She was honest, knowledgeable, and considerate. I am SOO happy I made the appointment at BIjou!
It was the one and only place I looked! I made an appt to start looking at dresses, not thinking I would actually find it at my first appt. They had many styles of dresses in my price range and made it very easy to find what I wanted. We started out with me picking dresses to try, but once we started trying and seeing my style preference change, the consultant, Karen, stepped in and helped guide me in the right direction. I never felt rushed, and Karen was very honest and respectful when she liked or disliked a dress. If it didn't look good, she didn't try to convince me otherwise and I very much appreciate that. I found a dress that day and couldn't have been happier with the overall experience.
I just purchased my stunning wedding gown this past weekend at Bijou Bridal in Paramus, NJ. I had the most wonderful experience! Everyone who works there is so friendly and my consultant Haley was seriously the sweetest ever. She listed to my likes and dislikes, had me look through the dresses for any that caught my eye, and my family did the same.
She noticed me gravitate to a dress on a mannequin a few times and pulled it right off for me to try on. It was the first wedding dress I ever tried on, and it was the one I fell in love with. I proceeded to try on a total of eleven dresses to rule out different styles and silhouettes, but number one was my dress! Haley listened to all the things I told her I loved in a dress and it literally checked off every single one.
Such a great consultant. Such a wonderful experience. So glad I found Bijou Bridal online and decided to make the 1.5 hour drive to them, rather than staying local and risking settling.
Thank you so much to Haley and the staff at Bijou Paramus for treating me like I was the star of the day and helping me find the most beautiful wedding dress!
I had a wonderful experience at Bijou Bridal! My bridal attendant, Despina, was very helpful and knowledgeable. She listened carefully to the type of dress I was looking for and was able to find me the perfect gown! They have a nice selection of dresses and everyone seemed very friendly. Overall, I had a great experience!
I walked in disappointed after earlier appt called to cancel on me. I figured I would give Bijou a call and they were able to get me in within an hour! I had a mindset of a Hayley Paige dress, and I just so happended to be paired with a stylist named Hayley(sp?)! I loved how she let me and my friends + family walk around the floor to pick our personal top favorites, that way she would be able to see the direction I was headed as far as style goes. She was so kind and helpful and made me feel comfortable the entire time while changing in and out of the bridal gowns- pro tip* it definitely makes a difference trying on gowns with spanks! It gives you a smooth clean silhouette and makes the dresses a breeze changing in and out of!
They carry so many styles and price points which I loved. I highly suggest having a photo or a few of exactly what you have in mind so they can see your untimate vision too.
I ended up going with the Hayley Paige dress and I’m in love!!!
Definitely recommend giving them a visit and just have fun with it!
Absolutely amazing. If you're looking for a wedding dress stop looking, and book your appointment right now at Bijou with Despina!! I went into the store with no idea what kind of dress I wanted Despina was absolutely fantastic!! She helped me find the best kind of dress that fit my style and body. Found my perfect dress right away, but looked at other stores just to look around.My advice- don't waste your time shopping around! No other store compares in their level of service, knowledge, and selection. So I hurried right back and got the dress of my dreams and I couldn't be happier!
I was able to to work with Despina and Krystal. They were AMAZING. They made that day with my mother, mother-in-law to be, and two sisters SO special and so fun. Our other experiences at bridal shops were slightly rushed and stressful. However, when I was at Bijou Bridal, they made me feel like I was the only woman in the building and truly made it a day I will look back and smile about forever. This was a day I dreamt about my whole life and I couldn't have imagined a better experience while finding the dress of my dreams. Despina and Krystal listened to what feedback I told them on each dress and even catered to my emotions and feelings during the appointment to help me make a choice to buy the most incredible dress for my wedding day. I can't thank them enough!
My Experience with Bijou Bridal was nothing short of amazing! They have such a beautiful assortment of dresses to choose from however the first dress i saw, i picked! It is so well made an a lot of bang for your buck, it is absolutely gorgeous!
I started my fitting with Frzan a few weeks ago and she is incredible! I had to get the dress a lot larger due to my bust and she altered it to fit me like a glove! not to mention I've lost 20+ lbs from when I first picked my dress and it was never an issue for her to make it fit beautifully and look like it was made for my body. She hand made the most beautiful straps and every time i went in for a fitting everything was ready for me! I highly recommend her! She is AMAZING!!!!!
After searching to no avail at multiple boutiques, I found my dream gown at Bijou. The boutique is absolutely lovely and the staff was more than helpful. Kelly helped me select my dress and Diana tailored it to perfection. I felt more beautiful than I ever imagined I could have felt on my wedding day and I owe it to the patience and kindness of the staff at Bijou!
What a beautiful, stressless, and unforgettable experience, I had at Bijou Bridal. From their friendly staff to their beautiful bridal grown selection, I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Karen, our bridal dress attendant, was absolutely amazing by helping me every-step-of-the-way with choosing THE DRESS! She was positive, kind, and so very heart warming! After when I said YES to the dress, I met the bridal dress seamstress, who in fact is extremely talented, Farzaneh. With her patience, understanding, and compassion I will be walking down the aisle marrying the love of my life with the dress of my dreams!
My wedding was in June and I walked in mid January. In one appointment I was able to find exactly what I was looking for. They were accommodating and very helpful. The tailor is amazing, she added beading to mesh sleeves and you couldn't tell it was touched.
They have such a great selection! I went to several other boutiques and Bijou had the most options that were in the running. I had Kelly help me pick out the dresses that I tried on and she was so good at finding what worked well with my shape and really listened to what I liked versus what I didn't like. I am completely in love with the dress I found there and had so much fun going through the whole shopping experience with them!
I found the wedding dress of my dreams at Bijou in Paramus. During my very first appointment and within the first few dresses, I knew that this was my dress. I was blown away by their designer choices, especially their designer that is unique to Bijou. The bead work on my dress was absolutely stunning and I could not have asked for a smoother process with my dress and my bridesmaids dresses as well. Thank you!
I LOVED shopping for my wedding dress at Bijou. The staff is so nice and helpful and really make you feel beautiful. They also do alterations for the gowns on site. My seamstress Farzaneh did an absolutely FABULOUS job on my dress. It fit like a glove and I didn't want to take it off. She is so amazing and I highly recommend you ask for her and check out Bijou!
I had a great experience with Bijou Bridal. Everyone there was very attentive and organized. I said yes to the dress on my first visit thanks to Despina. I also did my alterations there. I didn’t have one single issue and was a very happy bride! THANK YOU BIJOU BRIDAL!
My dress was a showstopper thanks to the staff a Bijou. From my initial appt. to my alterations, I was beyond impressed with the helpful and wonderful staff. Booking my appt. during the week allowed more privacy to look at and try on the dresses. So many beautiful styles to choose from and the prices are completely affordable. A gracious thank you to Barbara for her magic touch with alterations, the dress fit like it was made for me. Also, multiple other staff during my alteration appts. went above and beyond to ensure any question etc. was answered. I am so glad I choose Bijou.
After all of my friends telling me about Bijou Bridal, I had to check this place out for myself. It was the first place I visited for wedding dress shopping, and I'm so glad! Right from the start, the ladies up front were warm and welcoming. The store was nicely put together with plenty of options to choose from.
The woman who helped me was named Despina, and she was beyond helpful. I was close to clueless when it came to shapes and designs of dresses, but I knew what I liked and didn't like, so Despina worked her magic. I chose a total of 5 dresses to try on, and low and behold, the last one (which is a Bijou Bridal design) took me and my family's breath away.
The level of service and professionalism following after purchasing the dress was on par, too. Betty was my seamstress and was very patient throughout the entire process. She paid very close attention to all the little details of the dress and my wants/needs.
If I can give this place 3 thumbs up, I would!
Bijou Bridal is amazing and would recommend anyone to go here. Karyn, she was AMAZING. Was very patient in helping me find "the one" dress. Coming from a girl who went to NY and actually BOUGHT at dress at Kleinfeld, HATED the NY Kleinfeld experience, Bijou was so personal and they made you feel at home.
Diana for alterations was EXQUISITE. My dress was a huge ballgown and her alterations were amazing.
MY ONLY ISSUE -- picking up my dressing friday afternoon, bc they said it would have been steamed the day of. my dress was ABSOLUTELY HORRENDOUS when I got home, hung it up and removed the bag. HORRENDOUS. It was NEVER steamed. I had to pay additional money for another boutique woman to come to my house and spend 2 hours steaming out my entire gown. this is the only reason I cannot give full stars and still haven't heard from them regarding this big problem. even after 12 hours in my dress, in and out of the limo, sitting and standing, I had NO LINES left in my satin ball gown in which they claimed that the lines were from being in the bag, BOGUS !!!! it was never steamed and almost spending 10k to their location, I still am not happy about that!
Overall, I would go back and would recommend to brides!
Very poor experience. Exceptionally poor customer service and quality. Gown ripped open the night before the wedding. We paid FULL price for the gown. When I called to ask for a partial refund, I was insulted and humiliated by the management team. Would not recommend going here. We went to the Bijou Bridal in Oakbrook, IL Lack of customer service and professionalism by the leadership in New Jersey. Poor quality dress. In fairness of the Oakbrook staff they did offer and were on the way to fix it when I called to let them know about the issue, but the bride and her sister had already resolved the issue.
I can't say enough how much I truly enjoyed working with Bijou bridal, more importantly with Hayley specifically. She was AMAZING! First about the store itself - it was easy to make appointments. I usually made them for a Saturday, as it is hard for me to get there during the week. I found that making a 4:30 appointment (their last appointment of the day) or 10am appointment (earlier in the day) made our experience less rushed or stressful. They offered a variety of gowns from different designers, all in different price ranges so it is easy to find something no matter what your budget is. Anything I tried on, I made sure to keep in my price range so I would not be disappointed :)
Now to Hayley - From my first appointment, I could tell she would really be able to help me find the dress of my dreams. You know you are working with a true professional when you can show her a picture of a gown that you are interested in and she can pick that exact dress out of an entire floor in seconds. She was incredibly patient with me, working with me over the course of 4 consultation appointments to find exactly what I wanted. We had fun, trying on multiple gowns each time I came in! I was always greeted with a smile and she was truly excited for me when I finally found my dress. She was honest with me, helping me decide what I liked and what I did not like. I went in looking for one style and wound up with something completely different (that I love!) due to her expertise. Ask for her by name, Hayley is a gem. Thank you Bijou for a wonderful experience. Can't wait to come back with my bridesmaids for their dresses!
I went to Bijou Bridal twice within a month and had Despina as my consultant. She is FANTASTIC, and really wonderful to work with. She was very kind, patient, and helpful, making the entire process very smooth. She was able to pull various dresses based on what she thought would work well, and overall was so great to work with. Bijou has a wide selection of dresses and takes good care of their customers. I highly recommend Bijou Bridal and Despina!
After seeing a handful of stores, I found THE dress at this amazing store. It has such gorgeous dresses at affordable prices. The woman who did the alterations was also great; nice and helpful. The only thing I don't like is that you can't go for a fitting/alterations on the weekends and it was sometimes hard to coordinate a time/date during the week due to crazy work hours. Either way, I don't regret choosing my dress from here. It was absolutely stunning! Thank you again!
My wedding was 8/5/17 and I had a great experience with Bijou. I never felt pressured to choose a dress and they made me feel so comfortable. I think many brides get stressed when they are dress shopping but I had the best day ever! Also, when my dress came in, my seamstress was wonderful. She paid attention to detail and made sure it was a perfect fit. I'm so happy I chose them!
This place was garbage. Its rare that i find so many things wrong with a place however i had such a terrible experience here that after i bought my dress, i went to another bridal salon & found my dream dress. Several of the workers here are super unprofessional which i observed other patrons experience. I got stuck several times with pins during my fitting and the place is unhygenic. This place is covered in dirty carpet with pins everywhere. Coming here was the biggest & worse mistake out of my wedding ventures.
My experience at Bijou was absolutely amazing. Lisa was extremely helpful and made the entire experience of both finding my dress and then setting up my fittings very easy and special. The dresses at Bijou are stunning. All different types and designs. I could not be any happier with my dress and the costumer service that I received at this Bridal store. Deanna was my favorite! She was so so sweet and was a perfectionist when it came to fitting my dress and went above and beyond to make sure that I looked beautiful for my wedding day. She was such a pleasure to work with and made me feel beautiful during each fitting I had. My dress looked SO perfect on my wedding day and I am still getting compliments on how gorgeous it looked. Bijou helped me look like a princess and I have never felt so beautiful in my entire life. Thank you so much Bijou for helping me find my perfect wedding dress and making my wedding dreams come true!
