Wedding gown shopping for a plus sized woman could be a nightmare but Christine's private, personal service was amazing. my daughter found a gown after having every detail and style of every gown explained included the different types of fabrics. I will be going to get my Mother of the Bride gown for sure. thank you Christine.

I went to four other bridal shops before making an appointment with Christine. She walked us through what to expect with what we were looking for. She took in account of my opinion but also added her opinions and helped me come out of my box and find my dress! Don’t wait and book an appointment here before anywhere else. Christine doesn’t mess around.

I said, “Yes to the dress!” At Christine’s bridal and I could not be happier. I originally was going to order a dress online and I’m SO thankful that I chose to go see Chris! She made the whole morning dedicated to finding my wedding dress. The dress I left with and fell in love with was NOTHING like I was looking at online. She was determined to make me comfortable and find the dress of my dreams. It’s very safe to say she succeeded! Would recommend this bridal shop to anyone that is in need of a dress!

Christine’s Bridal was an amazing experience! This was the only place I went to get my wedding dress. She was extremely nice and explained every type of dress and fabric to me and my group. She worked with me to find out what kind of dress I would love. She also helped me find the veil, tiara, and a little jewel belt to go with my dress! She’s an amazing person! Can’t wait to go back for bridesmaids dresses and tuxes!

I wish I could give Christine's Bridal more than 5 stars. Christine helped to get me in at the very last minute for a one-on-one bridal appointment because my mother decided to come to town at the last minute. I knew then that Chris and Christine's Bridal was going to be something special! She made the day of my appointment a day with my mom that I will never forget. I know nothing about dresses, but she sat us down and told us all about styles, fabrics, and what shapes look best on what body types. She made me feel so calm during what I thought would be a very overwhelming and likely discouraging experience. She was incredibly thoughtful, listened to our concerns and to what we liked, and made us feel so at home at her shop. I am so thankful that I chose Christine's Bridal to be my first try at wedding dress shopping and I can't wait until I can wear my dress again! I HIGHLY recommend Chris to any bride of any size.

My visit to Christine’s Bridal exceeded all expectations!! Who would have thought in the little town of Hartland Four Corners, Vermont you would have found a bridal dress shopping experience that could compete with Kleinfeld’s from “Say Yes to the Dress”. The staff was knowledgeable, congenial, supportive and invested in my happiness. Not only did I find a dress that was fabulous (designed by Christine!!), it was also at a fabulous value. This is wedding heaven for us curvaceous ladies!

Chris the owner made my experience one I will never forget! Her dresses are absolutely stunning and she made it so easy for me to find the perfect dress so quickly by listening to everything I was saying about each dress! The fact that she could talk me through everything and teach me so much about each style and material made what I thought was going to be a long, exhausting, and awful journey so quick and simple! She knows her stuff and she designs the dresses so it's something you cannot get anywhere else! I would highly recommend to any of my friends or family to go to her first. You won't get the quality, honesty, knowledge, and patience anywhere else like I did with her. I cannot wait for my big day just so I can show off this beautiful dress. Thank you so much Chris! I will be sending anyone I talk to your way!

I was very apprehensive to look for a dress. I am not a size 2 or 4 or 10. I'm a bit larger and I have grown to hate shopping because there's never anything I like in my size. I was terrified that I wouldn't be able to properly try on dresses, be embarrassed and would leave disappointed. Chris not only put my fears to rest when I spoke on the phone with her but then she proved she and her shop "had the goods"! From her knowledge of the bridal dress industry, her pleasantness and her ability to really listen to what you like and don't like, the total experience was a treat. She gives you her undivided attention. She closed the shop while showing me dresses so I wouldn't be self conscious - she didn't even answer the phone. One of the best parts was every dress zipped!! The prices are very reasonable and there's a great selection. This is the first shop I went to with the thought that I'd get some ideas of what I would like. I never dreamed I would say "Yes to the Dress" in one day having only been to one shop but I did!!!! If you're looking for a wedding dress, I HIGHLY recommend starting at Christine's Bridal first and I bet you won't have to go anywhere else, too!!

Christine was awesome she taught my group so much about wedding dresses and took the time to make sure I found the perfect dress, very amazing selection of jewelry and dresses! had a very good experience trying on wedding dress for the very first time
Patricia · Married on 10/12/2018
I can’t say enough positive things about Christine’s Bridal. From the moment I walked in I felt special. I really wasn’t sure what to expect but when every dress she had me try on fit I was ecstatic! Chris was knowledgeable and very sweet. She made me feel like a princess. It was a memorable experience. And I got my “wow” dress. Thanks so much!!!
Jordann · Married on 10/06/2018
I had an amazing experience at Christine's Bridal! She was kind and really helped me find the perfect dress for my wedding. She has really unique and fun dresses compared to other bridal shops in the area! I would def recommend to a friend!
Agnes · Married on 09/21/2018
I had such a lovely experience looking for my dress at Christine's Bridal. The customer services was wonderful; I truly felt my vision and ideas were hears, which of course was important. This was my first experience trying dresses on and I learned so much throughout the process. Had I not found the perfect dress at Christine's Bridal, I would have left feeling so much more confident going forward in the dress search thanks to the expertise. Lucky for me I did find a gorgeous dress, and I would recommend Christine's Bridal to all brides-to-be!
Tiffany · Married on 08/10/2018
First off she gave us such a warm welcome when we first arrived traveling from NY. She made us feel right at home. She made me feel special in every dress I tried on and asked for my opinion on everything. She asked the other people I brought with me as well but made sure to let them know that my opinion was the final one. I love my dress that I chose and can not wait for others to see it thanks again
Emmy · Married on 08/02/2018
I said YES to my dress at Christine’s Bridal and I had an amazing experience. It was my first stop on my dress hunt and was planning to go to another shop after visiting Christine’s to make sure I had the right dress. I did not need to go anywhere else because Christine not only found me the perfect dress, but she also explained the different styles and fits of all the dresses I tried on. We found what worked best on my body and what fit in my budget. She was so knowledgeable and professional. I would recommend this shop to anyone!
Amanda · Married on 07/07/2018
If I could give more than 5 stars I would! This had to be the most enjoyable experience I have had shopping and given that this is one of the most important events to shop for, I was thrilled. I am a plus size woman and the idea of trying on wedding dresses frightened me. Working with Christine, I found it easy and as if I was working with a friend. She made me feel special and like I mattered. At the end of it all, I said yes to the dress and I couldn't be any happier. I'd recommend anyone looking for a wedding dress to go here, especially if you are plus size and want to feel beautiful.
Julie · Married on 06/30/2018
She was really great to work with! I loved the tuxes we got, and my husband was so happy he got to have camo! She was accommodating for the changes I wanted to make last minute, and everyone looked fantastic in their tuxes! Couldn't have asked for a better place to get them from! Thank you again!
Megan · Married on 06/23/2018
I had the great pleasure of working with Chris today picking out my wedding dress. She was incredibly kind, patient, knowledgeable and honest. I never once felt rushed in making my decision, nor did I ever feel as though she was just out to make a sale. I am so glad I was able to “say yes to the dress” with Chris and I can’t imagine having gone anywhere else. I would highly recommend Christine’s Bridal for wedding dress shopping and look forward to going back to look for accessories and bridesmaids gowns.
Every gown was amazing in quality and price and Chris knew every aspect of each gown and was able to help pick out the greatest dress in the world.
Rebecca · Married on 05/19/2018
I have to say that I went into bridal gown shopping with reservations. It was my first time trying dresses on, I knew what dresses I had seen online that I liked and I knew what I didn’t like. But I soon realized all of that goes out the window when you start trying them on yourself. When I first got to Christine’s Bridal we were greeted by the owner herself, with a measuring tape around her neck and a smile on her face she got down to business right away. We took our shoes off, donned some of Chris’s finest fluffy slippers, and after a couple of quick measurements we started learning. Chris is extremely knowledgeable, and the first thing she did was to teach us all about fabric, fit, style and construction. I didn’t realize until then how much I didn’t know! But she walked us through it all with confidence and caring, and let me tell you, 2 hours flew by so fast!!! There were so many dresses in so many styles, and all of them beautiful! And the best part was that I could actually fit into nearly every dress she brought out, and some were even roomy!!! That was a refreshing change from almost every other shopping experience I’ve had as a plus size woman, and it certainly made it a lot more enjoyable than I had expected. Never once did I feel out of place, uncomfortable, or self-conscious. Not only was it fun and educational, I found the most beautiful dress for my big day and we even got a discount for paying up front! Christine’s is definitely the place to go, especially for plus size women. The selection spanned every type of dress imaginable, sizes and styles flattering for every body shape, and prices for every budget. Thanks Chris!!
Cynthia · Married on 04/15/2018
Chris was absolutely wonderful!! After 3 other bridal shop visits my previously very disappointed daughter I were extremely pleased with the knowledge and recommendations provided at Christine's bridal, none of which was mentioned at previous shops. We found THE dress in under 2 hours and truthfully went a completely different direction than was my daughter's initial intent. And she is and will be beautiful. We will most likely be back for mother-of-the bride and attendings dresses. Thank you Christine!!!!
Hilary · Married on 03/29/2018
Hands down the BEST experience ever. Christine’s Bridal is a wonderful plus size shop. I am a bigger girl and it’s very hard for me to find clothes that fit right, especially dresses. Chris made me feel so comfortable and beautiful and confident, she didn’t make me feel fat or ashamed of my body. Each dress I tried on was beautiful and they all fit, they adjusted to my and my body and that’s what they are made for, to fit every big beautiful curvy bride. Im a sparkle girl and she did not disappoint, there was so much sparkle and different styles, anything from simple and elegant to blinged out and gorgeous. I had so much fun. Definitely the place to go!
Amanda · Married on 02/17/2018
I had the most wonderful experience at Christine's Bridal. Chris is very friendly, professional and knowledgeable. We were greeted at the door with a handshake and shown out with a beautiful gown and a hug. She devotes her time 1:1 to her brides during their appointment. She was great about only showing me gowns in my price range so I didn't fall I love with something I couldn't afford. Her inventory is beautiful, well made and competitively priced and it is made for real ladies not models! I've never worn anything off the rack before, but Chris put me in the dress I purchased and it slid on like a glove. I am so appreciative for her help and I'm so glad I found Christine's Bridal and trusted the reviews. Chris made choosing my dress the least stressful part of wedding planning (something to be said when you choose a gown a month before the date.) I would recommend Christine's Bridal to anyone without hesitation!
Tori · Married on 02/02/2018
First and foremost I just want to say that I found my dream wedding dress. I went to ANOTHER PLACE BEFORE here and was made to feel ashamed, like I didn't belong. Now Its not a secret that I am not a small girl, but to be sent home crying from what should have been an amazing day is unacceptable for any women. Well my cousin seeing how upset I was, called Christine's Bridal and filled them in on what happened. It wasn't even two weeks of emailing and talking with the Owner Chris, that I had my appointment. So my mom, sister- in law, cousin, friend and I headed to Heartland VT. When you walk into this place you are immediately treated like family. From the door to the dressing room, there is not one moment I felt nervous, or like I didn't belong. The owner Chris helped me with every gown, made sure all my needs were met. I have even decided to change where the men were going to get their tuxedos to Christine's Bridal. The place and Chris are without a doubt absolutely wonderful. I will be going here from now on for all my formal wear for sure!!!!
Mindy · Married on 01/06/2018
I went to two other places before ending up at Christine’s Bridal. It was worth the wait! While I found several other dresses that I liked, I hadn’t found the dress yet. When I walked in Chris was so welcoming and after talking to her for a couple minutes she really managed to pin down exactly what I wanted where the others fell short. Every gown she pulled for me to try on was gorgeous. The best part was every single gown made me feel beautiful, Needless to say, I found my dress and Chris was an absolute jewel. Thank you so much for helping me to find my perfect dress.
Kristen · Married on 11/14/2017
Shopping at Christine’s was an experience like no other. Immediately we felt so welcome. Chris took my measurements and then sat us all down to talk about the different styles and materials, something the previous bridal shop I had visited did not do. She used my “inspiration pictures” to get a feel for what I liked and went into the back room of dresses and pulled one to get an idea of my size. Spoiler alert: this is the dress I bought! She was so in tune with what I liked and was able to read my body language when I wasn’t able to explain what I liked or didn’t like about a dress. The prices at Christine’s are also phenomenal while still getting top notch materials. I was fairly picky about the kind of dress I wanted, and even though I eliminated many styles and materials she was still able to put me in a great selection of dresses. I fell in love with 3 dresses and she was able to help me make the final decision without feeling pressured to make the decision that day. Chris was amazing and I am so glad I was able to work with someone so lovely. The professionalism and dedication I felt was above and beyond anything I could have imagined, I will be recommending Christine’s to everyone!
