    Amazing! Exactly what a bridal appointment should be like.

    I absolutely loved my experience at Nicole Bridal!! I felt absolutely comfortable from the moment I emailed asking about a few specific dresses by a designer I had fallen in love with. Marina responded right away letting me know which of the dresses they had and included others from the same designer. I shared my “obsession” with the designer and she echoed how great the dresses were. By the time my appointment came, it felt like I was just visiting people I already knew.

    I love that the appointments are private and I got an hour and a half to explore and try on gowns. Faima, the bridal consultant, was AMAZINGGGGGG!!!!! She has been in the bridal industry for decades and absolutely knows her stuff!!! My mom and I were set on a gown from another location, until we found another contender here. “Mama Faima” asked to see it to compare them. The things she pointed out were things we would’ve never thought about. I appreciate all of her patience and honesty throughout the entire process. It ultimately helped in making my decision. I didn’t feel pressured into buying here, but her knowledge and openness certainly made a difference.

    Marina, is godsend! After we found a dress we loved she worked with us to ensure we were staying within the price range that was originally discussed via email.

    I can’t wait to finish out the wedding process with these lovely people.

    I said yes!

    This was by far the best experience I had at a a bridal salon. I’ve been to a few places recently and the experience can be less exciting during these times with all the restrictions. Nicole Bridal made my experience amazing and we were able to bring all the dresses into a private room for the appointment. Compared to other places I’ve been, Nicole had a variety of different styles of dresses that I have not seen in any other salon I’ve been too. I was blown away by how elegant and classy yet modern and different all the dresses were. I was able to say yes to the dress and couldn’t be happier!! Everyone there who helped was kind, considerate, and knowledgeable. We even discussed how to alter the dress to make it perfect!

    Thank you so much!

    I got the dress just a week before the wedding and Nicole and her daughter were amazing helping me find a beautiful dress that fit my needs and desires. Everyone said so many nice things about my dress and the process was so simple and easy. They were flexible and reasonably priced. Nicole made alterations within the week and was so warm and sweet. Thank you so much to the team , and we'll be coming back just to show pictures of everything!

    Nicole and Marina are the BEST!!!

    Nicole and Marina were absolutely wonderful to work with!!! They make you feel so comfortable and welcome from the second you walk into the shop. They really listened to what I was looking for and they found my DREAM dress. Nicole's alterations were perfect and she added a wrist strap so that I could dance all night without losing the shape of my dress. Almost two months post wedding and I still find myself daydreaming about my dress!!! THANK YOU MARINA AND NICOLE for the amazing experience, my mom and I are so grateful!!!

    Personal, One of a Kind Experience

    Purchasing my dress from Nicole Bridal was one of the best decisions I made. From the second I scheduled my appointment, the experience felt entirely personal unlike other bridal shops. I went to the appointment having an idea of what type of dress I wanted, and I ended up with something entirely different per their suggestion. It was clear they knew what styles worked for my personality. The alterations were included in the price which was an added bonus. All my bridesmaids ordered their dresses here too, and they were beautiful. Overall, I am so thankful to Marina and Nicole for helping find my perfect dress!

    Perfect place for your dress!

    I cannot say enough about how thankful I am to have found my dress at Nicole Bridal! From the very beginning, they were so helpful. They accommodated my slightly large group for my friend dress shopping appointment, always new me by name and were always so responsive. This was one of the first things off my wedding list and they set the tone for our planning process. They made everything so easy and worry-free! Aside from their service, everyone loved my wedding dress (and I'm obsessed, obviously)! They have such as great and unique selection! I loved working with Marina and would highly recommend this shoppe!

    Superior customer service for a stress-free experience

    Choosing Nicole Bridal was the best decision I made during the wedding planning process. The entire team is thoughtful, welcoming, knowledgeable, flexible, responsive, and an overall delight to work with. They immediately understood my sense of style and knew exactly which designer would fit the bill. They also provided expert alterations, which really streamlined the process. Never once did I worry about how my dress would turn out. I absolutely loved the final product and am already recommending Nicole Bridal to my recently engaged friends.

    Stress-free experience and one of a kind!

    Nicole Bridal and Formal Shop went above and beyond with my wedding dress. They truly made the whole process stress free and were so sweet and professional to work with. Being a teacher, finishing graduate school, and doing 20 other things during the day left me with a packed schedule BUT they were very flexible with scheduling all my appointments. The experience I had was very personal, relaxing, and one of a kind. They were even able to make custom changes to the gown through the designer! The alterations to my gown were perfect, which made my dress so comfortable that I didn't want to take it off! They truly care about your wedding day and I can't say enough about them! Honestly, GO THERE FIRST!

    Amazing. Wish I could get married again so that I could still be working with Nicole Bridal!

    Nicole and Marina were amazing. They were so fun and easy to work with. I recommend Nicole to anyone I know that is looking for their wedding dress. The experience was fantastic. Nicole and Marina were very flexible with scheduling fittings and appointments. They could not have been more accommodating.

    Bridal Store with the most chic dresses!

    When on the hunt for a sleek moderate sexy bridal dress. Nicole Bridal and Formal Shoppe was the best in the PA, DE, NJ, MD area. Marina and her family were always flexible to my tight work schedule and even thought I was almost always there last customer of the night, I felt they provided me the same care as every other bride and their family. I can't thank them enough for helping me find the perfect dress and making it look amazing.

    Nicole and Marina are amazing! I found my Naama & Anat dress at a trunk show, but wanted to purchase from a shop that worked with the designer regularly. My mom and I found ourselves at Nicole's and we had a great experience. They had the sample ready to go for my appointment and I ordered it that day. Marina made sure the dress had all of the tweaks I wanted prior to ordering and promptly followed up on all of our questions and emails. She also helped me choose my accessories and had everything ordered for me in the colors I wanted. Once the dress arrived I needed some alterations. Nicole assured me we would get it to fit just right and by the last fitting the dress was ready for the aisle! I would highly recommend this shop as I had a wonderful experience from the moment we walked through the door through the final fitting. Their experience and customer service is truly above and beyond!

    I am so lucky to have found Nicole Bridal & Formal Shoppe during my wedding gown search. I knew I wanted something different and it wasn't until I came upon this store that I truly found the dress of my dreams by Claire Pettibone. In addition to that, it was an absolute pleasure to work with Marina and Nicole. I will miss seeing them now that my wedding is over!! They are such a great and incredibly talented team and everything from my initial visit all the way through to my final fitting was such a great experience. You're seriously missing out if you don't visit this shop!!

    I can't express enough how wonderful Nicole and Marina were to work with!! From the moment we stepped into the salon, they made us feel like family, and they treated us that way every second until the final fitting. Marina was so helpful in helping me find my dream dress (which after a couple of rounds of shopping I was afraid I may never find!) and was so patient and honest as I tried on dress after dress. Nicole was also such a pleasure to work with! She tailored the dress perfectly, and even had the great suggestion to create a wrist loop for the gorgeous lace train so that I could hold it around my wrist as I twirled around during the first dance, which created an absolutely stunning effect and some really special photos! I wholeheartedly recommend Nicole Bridal for their unsurpassed customer service and their wonderful alterations. Thank you Marina & Nicole!

    Nicole Bridal is simply the best place to go for your wedding dress! Words truly cannot describe the incredible experience that I had with both Marina and Nicole. They are both warm, patient, and knowledgeable women who understood exactly what type of wedding dress that I was looking for. Our wedding was on September 8th, 2017 at an estate in New Hope, PA, and I was looking for a soft and romantic dress to fit the venue. Marina provided me with wonderful options, and when I tried on one of the dresses that she selected, I knew that this was it. Nicole was simply amazing at tailoring my dress to fit like a glove. We were also able to find our bridesmaid dresses at Nicole Bridal as well, which made the whole wedding planning process that much simpler! My bridesmaids were very happy with their Amsale and Monique Lhuillier mismatched dresses, and they looked absolutely stunning on the big day. I am going to miss seeing Marina and Nicole at fittings, as they are just simply wonderful people to be around! Overall, I truly cannot thank Marina and Nicole enough for all of their help in making our wedding day absolutely perfect! Thank you!

    When I first began wedding dress shopping, I knew exactly what I wanted, a long sleeve A-line gown. I was going for a Grace Kelly and Kate Middleton look but with a hint of sexy/chic. After going to six different stores I didn't think I would like any wedding dresses, no one had what I wanted, then I found Nicole Bridal. Nicole Bridal carries the most upscale chic dresses in the area (trust me I did the leg work). They saved me a trip to New York.
    I found a Rivini dress that I loved and had long sleeves added to it. Nicole and Marina worked with me to create my perfect custom sleeves. It took a few try's but we got it! They were so patient and kind to me even when I myself thought I was being a brideszilla crazy person! Nicole would say to me in her Italian accent, "Danielle don't worry, you will look fabulous." And I did look fabulous! I know that Nicole worked very hard behind the scenes to get my sleeves the way I wanted them because she really truly just wanted to make me happy.
    I'm actually sad that I don't get to visit them anymore, I will miss them.
    Not only am I thankful that I found my dress at Nicole Bridal but I'm thankful that I found Nicole and Marina!

    I am totally enamored and obsessed with Nicole's Bridal!! The shop is family owned, which gives the store an absolutely charming, endearing atmosphere right off the bat. Marina & Nicolina have been in this business their whole lives, and their expertise shines in everything they do. I trusted them completely through out the whole process, and I honestly looked forward to every fitting and visit I had with them! You feel like you're family when you are there, never just a customer. They are thankfully so understanding and flexible with my schedule, and I can't imagine what it would have been like to find the dress of my dreams anywhere else. Marina also hand made my veil, which was the most beautiful part of the day and I will cherish my bridal look forever. Thank you ladies !! - Corinna

    As soon as I walked into Nicole Bridal, I knew that it was the perfect place to buy my wedding dress. Marina and her mother Nicole are both wonderful, and they made me feel so comfortable, even as an indecisive bride. They greeted my family and me at each appointment with such energy and laughter that it made the whole experience enjoyable. After trying on several dresses, Marina found the perfect dress to fit my personality, and she helped me select the perfect veil, belt, and headpiece to match. At each fitting, I was amazed at how the dress looked even more custom made to fit me exactly right, with just the right touch of crystals added to the dress for a little bit of sparkle. I felt so beautiful in the dress, and I would have picked that same dress again if I had to go back in time and do it all again. My bridesmaids also got their dresses at the salon, and Nicole did a fantastic job with their alterations and the flower girls' alterations. The day of the wedding, Marina was there to make sure everything was just right for me, for my bridesmaids and mom, and even for the groomsmen! She was truly my "superwoman" that day, and I could not have been more grateful. The whole wedding dress experience at Nicole Bridal was just perfect. I can proudly say how lucky I am to be a second generation Nicole Bridal bride. Thank you, Marina and Nicole! I will miss my visits to the salon; I may just have to stop by to say hello!

    After my first round of shopping I was worried I wouldn't find a dress I'd fall in love with. Then I found Nicole Bridal. They listened to what I was looking for and only put me in dresses that they knew I'd look great in. I ended up getting the first dress they had me in - they knew it was the one even before I did. They did as many fittings as I needed to feel comfortable in my dress and were flexible when I wanted to use my sister's old VERY wrinkled veil (they even steamed it for me so it was all ready to go!). They treated my family and friends who came along to shopping and fittings like their own family and were wonderful to work with.
