    A Fantastic Experience

    When I first made my appointment, I communicated my style preference and price point, and they totally exceeded my expectations! I I ended up with a dress I totally passed by on the hanger, and I wouldn't have tried it on if it wasn't for them listening to my likes and dislikes during my appointment. They made what I thought was going to be painful (I hate dresses and dress shopping) experience into something that was so much fun and comfortable! I got my prom dresses here in high school, and didn't hesitate to go back for my wedding dress! They offer such unique dresses and services with alterations and accessories. Once we found the dress, we all were talking like old friends. I'm so happy I made the decision to come back to Ribbon!

    Ribbon is the best place to get a wedding dress if you are looking for something unique and stylish. There was no pressure to pick a gown on my first visit, they let me come back 3 times before I finally decided and gave me honest feedback on what would look best with my overall vision. They have so many beautiful gowns and work with a wonderful seamstress, Arlette, that can make your gown totally custom to you. I had my heart set on long sleeves and they were able to add those to the dress that I chose with ease, no one would have guessed that they weren’t on the original dress. I would highly recommend Melanie and her team at Ribbon for homecoming, prom, wedding, or other special occasion dresses.

    I heard about Ribbon from my Fiance's sister, who found her wedding dress there 5 years ago. Since then multiple other family and friends have visited the salon. I also found my dress at Ribbon and I could not say enough about the experience. The bridal fitting room is a great relaxing atmosphere to bring your family and friends to share in the experience. The quality of every dress I tried on was amazing and they were very sensitive to my price point. They really listened to myself and the group to find the perfect dress for me that I was comfortable in. I can't wait to work with them in the future.

    The service provided by Ribbon was outstanding. From bridal/bridesmaids appointments to fittings to alterations they work with you 100%. They listen to what you want and learn your style and from there make you look perfect for your wedding day. The bustle was super easy for my girls and looked beautiful.

    I shopped around at a few other local bridal boutiques, but nothing compared to my experience at Ribbon. Melanie was so incredibly helpful, and after showing her only two pictures of dresses I was interested in, she pulled several beautiful gowns that were exactly what I had been looking for. I also really appreciated that they only schedule one bridal appointment at a time, so you don't feel neglected or overwhelmed. Furthermore, there was no pressure to purchase a dress right then & there as I had found at most other stores. I would highly recommend Ribbon!!

    I was not interested in the typical "Say Yes to the Dress" wedding dress shopping experience, and I definitely didn't want the princess wedding dress. I came up to my hometown of Pittsburgh for one weekend and was determined to find a dress before I went back home to DC. My mom, close family friend, and I had a great low-key shopping experience at Ribbon. The store has a nice bridal collection but also carries a lot of prom and formal. Though low-key and relaxed, the staff is knowledgeable, professional, and so friendly. Melanie and the other staff treated me very well, without all the fluff and "oohs" and "ahhs" and "OMGs" of some of the other bridal shops. After getting a pretty good sense of what I was looking for, they got a little creative and pulled a beautiful Sherry Hill formal gown in ivory that wasn't even part of the bridal collection, and it was perfect. Unfortunately, the dress was from last season, and it could not be ordered. The store's seamstress, Arlette, worked her tailoring magic to bring the dress perfectly from a size 8 to a 0, for a very reasonable price considering. The staff also accommodated the fact that I was from out of town and they made sure I could get appointments when I was in town and on days when they don't normally do bridal or tailoring appointments. Throughout the entire experience, everyone made me feel so good about my choice, and I felt so beautiful on my wedding day.

    I can not say enough about the staff at Ribbon Bridal. It was such a great place to purchase my daughter's wedding gown! After discussing her ideas of what she wanted in a wedding gown Melanie brought out the perfect gown for her! The whole staff was a joy to work with. They made you feel like you were the only bride they were working with! The detail work was exceptional! After going to some of the larger bridal shops where the dresses looked worn and you felt like part of a heard of cattle, it was so refreshing to find this bridal shop! Both mothers for the bride and groom also purchased our gowns there too. From the dress selection, to the fittings and accessories we could not have been more happy!! This is truly a special place to go when wanting to experience a once in a lifetime event!

    Ribbon had a great selection of dresses within my price range, and no one tried to up-sell me on any dresses outside my budget. The dress I chose had an applique that I wasn't totally in love with, so they replaced it with a GORGEOUS Swarovski crystal design. Then they were able to redesign the pieces of the applique into an amazing hair comb I wore during the reception. I received so many compliments on my dress and accessories!

    I love the ladies at Ribbon! Melanie and Ingrid are so wonderful - you can tell they find so much joy in helping brides find "the dress" and pull together the right accessories to complete the look. They treat you like family, and that makes such a difference during the chaos of planning a wedding. When my sister found her dress here a few years ago I knew I had to come back to find mine. I'm so glad I did!

    They custom made my jewelry, which is beautiful and can be worn again. It photographed so nicely. Highly recommend them.

    I had a phenomenal experience at Ribbon Bridal. I couldn't have been happier with my gown...they helped me find the perfect dress, as well as veil, shoes and jewelry. My bridesmaids, junior bridesmaids and mother of the bride dresses were also gorgeous. Full service is what you get at Ribbon and a memorable wedding planning experience!

    Words cannot express the beauty of the dress we selected from your shop for my daughter's wedding dress. Not only did you add just the right touch to the choice of veil, but were very helpful in making us affordable jewelry that matched our attire beautifully. Thank you for all your help.

    I was so lucky to come across Ribbon Bridal! I had a vision of what I wanted to look like, as most brides do; however after seeing the same old dresses and none of them coming close to what I wanted my own to look like I almost gave up on what I wanted. Luckily, I went into Ribbon Bridal after my cousin told me about it. The owner, Melanie, was so sweet and very honest. I explained to her what I was looking for and she knew right away what to bring me. She only brought me one dress and that was all I needed because it was perfect! Every appointment I had was so much fun and stress-free thanks to the great staff. It is also worth noting that I traveled about an hour to get there, which I would not normally do, but it was well-worth it! I would recommend Ribbon Bridal to any bride in Pittsburgh or its surrounding areas!

    Staff was amazing! They pulled the perfect dress just from listening to my likes for a few minutes. They also assisted in personalizing it and made it truly one of a kind. Each appointment was easy and comfortable!

    I went to Ribbon because I saw them at a bridal show and loved the fact that they were able to creatively enhance your dress, jewelry, hair pieces, etc. I had my first appointment with Melanie and found a dress I loved. Colleen, who does the enhancements and beading was wonderful and we worked on a very different creation for my dress and hair. I was in love with the finished product even though I was not able to see it until I came in. Colleen made two hair pieces that were amazing. I got so many compliments on my dress and hair piece! Ingrid was also great in making me and my family feel great and relaxed through our many visits. The seamstress was the only issue through the process. She made some comments to me that were uncalled for at my fitting and I had zero confidence in her. Although the finished product turned out fine I still believe it wasn't the very best alteration job and it was quite pricey. Overall, everyone was great and if you want to set your look apart from the rest I would check them out! Jewelry is great and inexpensive also!

    My mom made an appointment at Ribbon after a family friend's daughter recommended them after looking for her wedding dress a year beforehand. We had spent the day looking at other places around Beaver, and were really excited when we entered Ribbon--- the feel is chic but welcoming, and Ingrid took great care of us from the beginning.

    I wasn't sure what I wanted beyond strapless and not a lot of beading or bling. Ingrid and her team took all of those things into consideration, and put me into a gown that I would have easily passed by if I had been looking myself. It was definitely more unique, but once I tried it on, it was the only wedding gown that I couldn't get out of my mind, and it ended up being THE dress!

    I am so happy with how it turned out! Admittedly I was a bit hesitant to trust all of the ordering and measurements, but Ribbon has been in business for a long time, and they know what they are doing! When I found a belt at another vendor, they permitted me to come in and try the belt on with the sample dress, as well as the sample veil, which we had purchased from Ribbon--- this really helped me to understand how things would look on the big day, and I couldn't be more happy with how things came together.

    Scheduling appointments was a bit tough at times, especially because I live in San Francisco but was getting married in Pittsburgh, but Ingrid took great efforts to ensure that I would be able to have all of my fittings and also be able to have any last-minute adjustments made to the dress if necessary.

    I would recommend Ribbon to other brides around Pittsburgh. We purchased my dress and chapel-length veil from them. They also custom-made a hair-piece that matched both the belt I brought in from another store, as well as my dress.

    I only went to Ribbon for my wedding gown. (My bridesmaids chose their own dresses. I also make my own jewelry, so I did not purchase any of their designs, though I did find them inspiring.) I worked with Melanie and their seamstress Arlette for my fittings. I loved Ribbon's selection of dresses - very unique for Beaver County and they seemed to have many gowns in my moderate price range. I never felt pressured or stressful in deciding on a dress. They were very willing to work with my schedule as I don't live in the area. There was a small hiccup in my final fitting with the bottom hem of my dress, but Arlette went above and beyond to make sure it was corrected in time for my wedding. Overall, beautiful gowns and lovely service.

    I won a gift certificate to this store at a Bridal Show and would never have gone there on my own for a couple reasons. One, I live really far away from the shop and the way they seem to do things is that you have to keep going back to check on your handmade creations or custom sized/fitted items so it would not have been convenient. Two, the owner was not my favorite person in the world and their prices are really extreme for gowns. Even though she tried to help me find a dress originally, we detested each other after trying to fit her cheapest (around $1000 was in the cheap end), size 8 samples on my poor, size 14 body. We actually ended up ripping a dress she tried to squeeze me into and I cried...it was not a good day. After that, I spent the money I won on jewelry and a flower for my hair. I worked with Ingrid instead of the owner and she was so nice. She may be the only nice thing I have to mention about the store. She helped me match jewelry to my dress. BTW, the handmade jewelry is reasonably priced and would recommend that.
