    A Joyful, Personal Experience

    I chose Kathryn's Bridal because they're a local business, are LGBTQ-friendly, and carry plus-size sample sizes. I could not be happier with the service I received there. I worked with Lanna, who is super knowledgeable, practical, helpful, and friendly. She helped relieve my anxiety about dress shopping and made the experience fun for me and my three guests. I felt safe with the covid precautions they had in place. I was also able to find a dress under budget, along with a beautiful belt and veil, and I couldn't be happier with my purchase or with my experience at Kathryn's.

    Found my perfect dress at Kathryn's!

    My mom and I came into Kathryn's feeling a bit defeated after I had tried on what felt like a million dresses earlier that day and not finding a dress that I loved. Melissa was my consultant for the appointment and she was awesome! My mom and I were able to browse and pull some dresses that we thought I'd like and just by seeing what we pulled, Melissa was able to figure out my likes and dislikes immediately!

    Lana was also great when I called a few days after ordering after having some doubt about the color of my dress (who know there were so many shades of white!). She suggested I come into the store and take another look at my dress just to make sure I was 100% set on my dress. When I arrived at the store, she quickly pulled my dress and helped me get back into it and fall in love with it all over again.

    So happy with my dress!

    I was very pleased with the dress selection and assistance from my consultant at Kathryn’s. This was my first and only place where I looked because I was very happy with what I was able to find here. They have a wide range of price ranges and styles, and we’re wonderful at helping me find something within my budget.

    Highly Recommend!!!

    I had a great experience at Kathryn's. My consultant made sure she knew what I wanted and made sure that each dress that was pulled was something I truly wanted to try on. If I even slightly disliked a dress, she moved onto the next. I am an overthinker and she truly helped me get through that. She made sure my voice was heard, which is saying a lot because I am quiet and I had 7 people with me. I would highly recommend Kathryn's to any bride!

    Helpful and Caring

    I went in with zero knowledge about dresses/dress shopping and walked out having said Yes! Kathryn’s made me feel comfortable and confidently answered all my questions. I feel amazing knowing I got my dress from a quality boutique with caring consultants! I LOVE my Maggie Sottero dress!

    Love Kathryn's!

    I first heard of Kathryn's as the MOH in my best friend's wedding -- she bought her gorgeous dress here. Shopping at Kathryn's was an amazing experience. The lady who assisted us was helpful, patient and extremely personable. We had fun chatting with her and she asked just enough questions to get to know us. The quality of their dresses is amazing. I recommend this place to anyone for a great bridal shopping experience!

    Finding my DREAM dress at Kathryn’s was seriously the best part of our wedding preparations. My consultant, Melissa, was so sweet, listened to all my likes and dislikes, and made me feel so beautiful. It was such an amazing experience.

    Wonderful experience

    I was able to get an appointment the same day, which was amazing since I live out of town and was visiting family. I had been to one wedding dress boutique previously and left that appointment feeling discouraged. My experience at Kathryns was soooo much better. I felt comfortable and the dresses were beautiful. I loved that I could pick out gowns to try on and the people there helped me find more dresses that I liked even better than the ones I picked. I have not bought a dress yet as I’m indecisive and plan to look at one more store, but I have a feeling I’ll be back to buy a dress at Kathryns.

    Absolutely Amazing

    My experience here at Kathryns was beyond words. First off I live about 2 hours away from the store and I will say that the drive was totally worth it. From the moment I walked in I felt welcomed. This was my first time shopping for dresses and I was overwhelmingly nervous. I use to be really fit and active and was a size 6 and I got hurt and depressed and gained over 55ibs, so needless to say I am about twice the dress size now. I had been struggling with a negative body image of myself because I had always been “fit” and here I was years later trying on dresses. And I wasn’t how I envisioned myself to look like when I came to go dress shopping. I was scared things wouldn’t fit and that I would have a melt down trying on dresses because I hated how I looked physically. I didn’t want my negativity to ruin what should be the best pre wedding experience. I got to Kathryns and we meet our consultant Anna, and wow she is amazing. Given all that I just said about feeling self conscious and overall not good about myself. She made me feel so comfortable and at ease. She listened to everything I said and made me feel like a princess. She had a very mother like manner to her and I even shared with her my feelings and she reassured me and made me feel good. At the end I stared at the mirror and cried, not out of sadness but out of happiness because Fir the first time in a long time I actually felt beautiful. She helped me feel beautiful and I said yes to the dress! Thank you Anna for everything . You did more than just help me find my dress. Would definitely recommend to everyone

    Went in thinking of a certain style and once I tried on I realized that it wasn’t for me. The lady that was helping me picked a dress that she thought would be flattering on me and I ended up loving it!

    Top notch service

    I was brought to Kathryn's by my aunt's and mother to just get an idea of what kind of dresses I would like to try on, never realizing that I would find my dream dress. I'm very bold, independent, outspoken and classic. I had tried on several dresses and was getting down to the last few when my 7 year old daughter pull a dress, as I slipped into it my daughter started to cry and said "mommy this is it", she ran out to my aunt's and mom and whispered "my mommy looks like a princess, this is the one". As I walked out to show everyone I saw my self and started to cry b/c I knew this was my wedding dress. Everyone at Kathryn's was very kind and professional, helping me pick out my hair piece and earrings to match my dress. They helped with every step of the way,. They found the ability to make everyone feel special while I was finding my dress. They kept me calm and relaxed. I would recommend them to anyone who wants an outstanding experience.
