the best of the best!
For starters DYF is absolutely incredible! The entire process could not have been any easier for me! I am still in shock that it was so easy and smooth. I initially I went to Dress Your Fancy because I was looking for a specific designer (Hayley Paige). They also offer trunk shows to help accessorize you on your day custom designed by Debra Mooreland. It was such a treat to be accessorized by the best of the best and you truly felt like a princess! We ended up buying dresses for my mother and my now mother in law- and they looked absolutely stunning as well. There is without a doubt we could not of had our fairytale day without them even with the pandemic regulations at the time! You can tell they go above and beyond giving attention to every detail. Truly an enjoyable experience.
Thank you again, Shelly and Stephanie 🖤🖤

Found my dream dress
Dress Your Fancy treats you like you are their best friend coming in to try on dresses. The atmosphere is always welcoming and always helpful. I never felt judged because of my budget and they did everything they could to help me feel beautiful while never pushing me out of my budget. When I returned for my accessories I was treated with the same kindness and professionalism. I was nervous for dress shopping because I'm not a big fan of the spotlight, but the DYF team made me so comfortable and at ease the whole time. A really wonderful place to find your dress!Sent on 07/30/2021

Shelly and her team are out of this world. They truly care about their brides and will stop at nothing to help make their day easier. I believe I found my dress only 1 month after getting engaged, 3/2019. I had zero plans to buy that day but wanted to check out the Hayley Paige trunk show. Shelly is an expert and helped me find the most perfect dress I couldve asked for. She helped me pick out the perfect bridesmaids dresses as well. She even held my dress there, safe and sound in the shop, as our wedding was delayed a year due to COVID. Every question/request/favor I had, Shelly was quick to help, even if it had nothing to do with my wedding dress. Im sad my wedding is over now and I won't have much of a reason to go visit this beautiful shop.Sent on 06/22/2021

An Amazing Experience
I went to DYF because my parents were local to the area (I moved about 2 1/2 hours away) and I had my heart set on a HP wedding dress that they special ordered for me to try on. Stephanie was my consultant and was extremely helpful! I ended up purchasing a dress that I never would have even thought I would like (and it wasn't HP). Fast forward to my dress coming in, I drove back to Vestal to pick it up and have it altered at home so I wouldn't have to travel leading up to my wedding. I had a freak out because it wasn't fitting the way the sample did. Shelly and Cheryl were so helpful-- looking at pictures I sent them, taking measurements for me-- all so I could tell my seamstress at home how to fix the dress. My big day came and my dress was perfect. I have never felt more beautiful in my entire life. I also order my veil and earrings from DYF which were also absolutely beautiful! I would recommend DYF to any bride looking for a personal dress shopping experience.Sent on 07/14/2021

The absolute best!!!
DYF surpassed my wildest expectations! I was one of there lucky yearly winners of the $1,000. A few months after winning I finally made my appointment. I showed up thinking I knew what I wanted and my talented stylist was able to pull something completely opposite of what I wanted. Let me tell you, when you know... you know!!! If it wasn’t for my amazing stylist I would not have left with my dream dress. DYF was by my side every step of the way even once Covid hit! I truly can’t imagine my wedding experience without them. Shelly and Stephanie go above and beyond for you and you will never have to worry about a thing. P.S. get your tux’s here too!!Sent on 10/08/2020

Going in just to look and ended up leaving with a perfect dress
I had such an incredible experience at Dress Your Fancy. Shelley and Emily were so inviting and accommodating (I had six people with me to look at dresses). It was so important to me to include my mom, grandmother, my fiance's mom and step-mom, my sister (MOH), and my best friend (MOH). We went in during a trunk show where Shelley had champagne and hor d'oeuvres out and ready, just to look to get an idea of what styles would be right for me. I tried on a handful of dresses with both Shelley and Emily's help! DYF has a wonderful selection of not only bridal gowns and stock dresses but also bridesmaid dresses that can be ordered in ivory so there was plenty of options to choose from for a girl on a budget (mine was $300-$400). I ended up falling in love with a dress that was unique and different and nothing I would have guessed I would've loved. Shelley was so great about my budget. The dress I bought was a stock dress and it fit as if it was made for me, which made it even more special! I ended up walking out of the store with my perfect dress that I held/hugged the entire way home! It was such an amazing day filled with fun, laughter, excitement and the most happy tears! I can't thank Shelley and Emily enough for their help and providing us with such a wonderful experience that I will cherish forever!Sent on 03/28/2019
Dress Your Fancy Bridal Boutique's reply:At the end of the day, all that matters is you found the dress that was made for you (regardless of price) and made you feel perfect on your wedding day! We are so happy you chose us to help you find that dress and loved having you as a #DYFBride! -xoxx

Dreams coming true
Shelley was amazing! She worked with my schedule and stayed open late to help me find the dress of my dreams!! I spent a few hours in the shop with her and some family members and by the end it felt like she was a part of the family as well ❤️ I found my dream dress and cannot wait to walk down the aisle in the most amazing dress I could imagine!Sent on 02/11/2019

Perfect dresses for the most perfect day!
Stephanie was wonderful to work with! She helped me find mine and my daughters dress for my wedding and they were everything (and more) we could have ever hoped for! They took my questions and concerns seriously and went above and beyond when my dress originally came in with issues. My new dress was in super quickly and they eased all concerns about time! Wonderful shop to work with!Sent on 11/22/2019
Dress Your Fancy Bridal Boutique's reply:THANK YOU so much for the sweet words! It was such a pleasure getting to work with you and Sophia (btw she is so adorable!). DYF is wishing you and your new husband a lifetime of love. We can't wait to see more pictures!

The best possible experience!
I went to DYF with a very strict budget and a very short time frame to work with, but Stephanie and the other ladies helped me like I was any other bride! It was such an amazing experience! We even had some trouble with my bank towards the end, and we stayed on the phone for an hour to fix it together! I couldn’t have asked for a better experience finding my wedding dress.Sent on 11/23/2018
Dress Your Fancy Bridal Boutique's reply:Hey Tatiana! You were awesome to work with! We are so glad you found the dress you love because at the end of the day, regardless of price, it is how the dress makes you feel and you were meant to be in THAT dress! We wish you love and joy in your future! -xoxx

Amazing, wonderful, fantastic!
Shelly is seriously the best of the best. I have gone to her for dress help for 12 years starting with prom and most recently with my own wedding gown. My out of state bridesmaids have called in to order their dresses and they keep texting me saying how amazing Shelly is (she really knows her stuff). Shelly has been so helpful and flexible to meet my out of state (and in state) bridesmaids needs. I can’t say enough positive things about Dress Your Fancy and Shelly. The new shop in Vestal is gorgeous and looks like it should be a bridal show on TLC. I got my dress during the Hayley Paige trunk show and I am over the moon happy with my choice. Shelly helped me with my measurements, because the ones I gave her were totally off and would have landed me in a much bigger size than what I really am. She pays close attention to details like this to make sure everything turns out the way a bride would want. I thought I wanted my gown to be in pink so Shelly went out of her way to see if it was possible. She got back to me so fast and said it was possible. I ultimately stuck with white and Shelly didn’t even flinch to my indecisiveness, she understood completely and supported me through it all. I am signed up for the Paris by Debra Moreland Trunk show and cannot wait to see what I can add to my wedding look. Shelly really makes sure their are plenty of opportunities for Brides to find exactly what they want. The rest of the team is also amazing and kind. I highly recommend going here for your wedding gown! So many gorgeous gowns from different designers, you won’t regret it!Sent on 01/08/2019

Let Shelley Make Your Dress Dreams Come True!
Initially I went to Dress Your Fancy because I was looking for a specific designer - Hayley Paige. I thought I would have to travel to NYC to find her dresses but I was so excited to find Dress Your Fancy carried her line!! From the first communication with Shelley, I felt important and special. My appointment was everything I had dreamed it would be. I told her what I was looking for (a ballgown with a dramatic back) and she knew exactly what to show me. I was able to look around and select what I wanted to try on and she also gave me some recommendations. When I got to the Hayley Paige section, I picked out my dress and got butterflies just looking at it on the hanger! She made me wait to try that one on until toward the end of my session...I think she knew that might be "the one" :) I knew immediately when I looked down at the dress on me, I was already tearing up before I even looked at myself! My mom cried as I walked out and then I looked at myself in the mirror and WOW, there was the princess I wanted to be! Shelley shared in our emotion and she too knew it was the one for me. I did really like another dress which was a completely different style (fitted) but in the end I knew the "Markle" was mine! She even let me come back a few times just to retry it on when I was having doubts and she never made me feel silly for being nervous about it. Shelley set me up with a seamstress and everything continued to go smoothly from there. Dress Your Fancy is a beautiful and bright boutique and and I never felt rushed or pressured into anything. My only small disappointment was not being informed that there was a Hayley Paige trunk show the following month. I definitely would've waited to have that experience. Even with that said, I have NO regrets...Shelley will give you the once in a lifetime experience that every girl should have!!Sent on 09/29/2019

I went to DYF after experiencing another vendor in Syracuse, total 180. The women at DYF were amazing! Helped me fit into my dresses, (we got very close) and had a good eye for what I was looking for. They also kept the excitement up with my guests, especially for my mom who was visiting from south TX. I loved every minute of being in the boutique and I found my perfect dress. I am so excited to go back at the end of the month to try it on!!Sent on 09/10/2019

Shelly and the team at Dress Your Fancy are out of this world amazing. From the first time I met them, they cared about making my dress choosing experience all I’d hoped it could be. They are so warm and inviting but never pushy and always honest about the lines that they carry. I ended up buying my wedding dress, MOB dress, and my veil and couldn’t have been more pleased! Thank you sooooo much DYF!Sent on 10/08/2019

The crew at DYF were wonderful to work with! They were patient with me while I decided on the perfect dress. When I had it narrowed down, they made a suggestion to one I was thinking of most, and that was what I needed! They were pleasant to work with and cared about their customers. I would highly recommend DYF for any of your formal dress/accessory needs!!Sent on 07/17/2019

Beyond happy with my experience at DYF! When I first walked in I was asked what styles I liked, and what price range I wanted to stay within. I did not know completely what I wanted but knew what I did not like. The very first dress that she said she was going to pull for me she said when I first walked in, she thought this would be the perfect dress for me. And boy was she right!! I did not expect to pick the first dress I tried on but she really nailed the style with my body type and personality. I did go on to try on a handful of other dresses that I picked out but in the end the first one that she picked out for me was the one! Thank you DYF for finding me my dream dress!Sent on 08/09/2019

Cant say enough!! - Such a great experience!!
I cannot say enough good things about Dress Your Fancy!! While I unfortunately did not find my dream dress there, (my sister did), and I found everything else! - We found our Mother of the Bride dress (best selection I have seen in the area as far as quality dresses), grandmother of the bride dress, all my bridesmaid dresses and my accessories (hair piece, earrings, and veil)!Sent on 04/25/2019
Every time I have been in the store has been a beyond pleasant experience! Everyone there is so so nice to work with! Shelley is extremely knowledgeable in the industry and gives you an honest professional opinion whenever you ask!
I had a small issue that came up, which was not at all the fault of DYF. Shelly and Stephanie went above and beyond to make it right and to ensure I was 100% happy! I can say from experience - They truly care about making the Bride happy however they can!
Dress Your Fancy Bridal Boutique's reply:Thank you Brittany for this great review! We are happy you found your perfect dress (even at a different location) but then we were able to help you complete your perfect look with the accessories and veil from our store!
