    Highly recommended

    Great selection of dresses. If not available in store Tessi will go out of their way to find it for you. Excellent alteration available, if necessary. Very professional and courteous service. Highly recommended.

    Everyone (Ali, Tesi, Bernadette) is so friendly and accommodating! Ali helped me find my wedding dress and was so patient when I went with my bridesmaids to pick their dresses.

    I am in love with Tesi Bridal and Formal! I first bought my wedding dress. I only went in to look around, but they were extremely helpful and professional. They all made me feel so comfortable and listened to and found exactly what I wanted and I found my dream dress! I recently went back with my mom for her special occasion dress. My mom is picky and never thought she would be able to love a dress. My mom ended up falling in love with a dress that was selected and she said that was her best experience shopping. I made an appointment to get my bridesmaid dresses there and I have RAVED about this shop to everyone. I will never go to another shop for formal wear. I HIGHLY recommend Tesi to anyone and everyone! I look toward to future purchases and my upcoming alterations!

    It was wonderful

    Tesi bridal helped me find the perfect dress for my wedding day. They had a large selection, I tried on a lot of dresses and was very indecisive, and they helped me find the perfect one! Tesi even helped me pick out my jewelry and acessories. I loved going back for all of my fittings. Staff is so friendly and helpful, especially Tesi, Bernadette and Alyssa. I highly recommend going to Tesi Bridal for your wedding dress!

    Wonderful Experience

    The girls at Tesi Bridal made shopping for my wedding gown such a wonderful, stress free experience. They work within your budget, and have such a wide selection for every taste. Tesi was the first and only bridal shop I went to, I found my gown there that first day! I felt so beautiful on my wedding day. Thank you Tesi!

    I had a wonderful experience at Tesi. The customer service is unparalleled. I am customer just attending a wedding and I received undivided attention. The staff new their dress selection and new exactly what dress would look best on me. The staff was very friendly from the moment I walked in until I left. I bought a couture dress for the wedding which is absolutely beautiful. The wedding dresses are MAGNIFICENT. I would recommend this shop to everyone.

    Excellent Bridal Shop!!

    Tesi Bridal shop is excellent. Their personal service and attention is amazing. My wife purchased her dress from here, and I rented all of my tuxedos. I couldn't ask for a better experience and the prices were very reasonable.

    I got my dress yesterday at Tesi Bridal for my wedding on 9/15/17. I could not have asked for a better experience! Alex was amazing and the owner Tesi helped as well. It was a very personal experience and they listened to what I was looking for. My dress is absolutely perfect and I'm happy I got to experience buying my dress from Tesi! I can't wait to wear it on my special day!

    I am so glad I found Tesi Bridal and Formal! I am a Pennsylvania bride who called all my local bridal stores looking for a specific dress. I was told by several PA stores that it was a dress from the designer's new line that won't be available in any stores for months, maybe not even until next year! I called Tesi Bridal on a Thursday and spoke with Halie who was more than willing to try to help me find this dress. Not only was she able to get the dress in store for me to try on but it was there less than 2 days later so I could pop in while I was down the shore for the weekend anyway. I tried it on, loved it, and ordered it that day! Thank you so much to Halie and Tesi for helping me hunt down my dream dress!

    Tesi, and all her girls she has working for her, were always a pleasure to do business with! I won my dress from a bridal show and Tesi herself helped me pick out the perfect dress, quite easily I might add! I had imagined it taking hours and hours going through racks of dresses, but that never occurred. I told Tesi my likes and dislikes and she pulled several dresses for me to try on. It was like she had known me forever and knew my style! Tesi really takes the time to help brides pick their dress and accessories to go with it. I couldn't have been any happier with my experience at Tesi Bridal! I highly recommend this shop for your bridal experience

    I couldn't be more happy with my dress from Tesi. I purchased a beaded lace sweetheart Casablanca dress and it was perfect. When I originally found my dress, I was 50lbs heavier than when I got married. I knew I wanted to lose weight for my wedding and the staff at Tesi had no problem when I said I wanted to order my dress two sizes smaller than what I measured. I was pleasantly surprised when they didn't argue with me as I had heard numerous stories about salons not accommodating brides wishes of ordering smaller sized dresses. When it was all said and done, I actually had to get my dress taken in even more and they did a great job. My dress fit like a glove on my wedding day and I just felt beautiful in my dress. The dress was stunning and the staff at Tesi was helpful and accommodating throughout the entire process.
    While I give them 5 stars for all aspects of service, if I would make one recommendation, it would be that they provided a slightly nicer garment bag and maybe throw in a picture worthy hanger. Those are just small details and by no means affect the overall service or quality of dress provided by Tesi Bridal. Thank you Tesi!

    I would highly recommend TESI Bridal & Formal to all brides to be. I went to 2 other bridal shops in New Jersey and I wish I had gone there first. I would have never imagined that wedding dress shopping could have been so stress free, and I owe this all to Tesi and her staff. What a fantastic experience I had with TESI Bridal & Formal. I felt so welcomed from the minute I walked into the store. Tesi and her staff were very professional always warm, friendly and helpful. They listened to what I wanted. What an amazing staff and friendly environment. After purchasing my dress, I then needed to schedule my fittings, which would not have been such a big deal except for the fact that I live in North Jersey. They were incredibly accommodating because I was an out-of-town bride, and they worked the fittings around my schedule when I would already be coming to town. I had to drive 2 hours for my fittings, but it was so totally worth it.Thank you all for your help with finding my perfect wedding dress.

    I could not thank Tesi Bridal and Formal enough for making my wedding dress shopping so amazing. From the phone call with Amanda helping me make my appointment, to Sara having such wonderful patience with me, to Tesi coming out and telling me how beautiful I looked in my dress, all of that made everything perfect. I felt like I was at home with my best friend helping me try on dresses. Sara was amazing and if it was not for her, I would not have found my gorgeous Mori Lee dress. The dress selection was incredible, the staff were so friendly and uplifting, and the shop was clean and much bigger than I had expected. Thank you again for making my day and my family's day more than we could have ever dreamed!!

    I cannot begin to describe how wonderful Halie was at Tesi Bridal. I was looking to try on a specific Essense of Australia gown. I literally called every authorized dealer to try to find the dress. Tesi Bridal was the only location who offered to bring in the dress for me to try. Not only did they get the dress for me, but Halie promised to get it in for me while my mom was in town visiting. The dress was amazing and the experience at Tesi was wonderful! We had previously tried dresses on in NYC and we did not get the true bridal experience until we went to Tesi Bridal. I found the dress of my dreams and we even found the bridesmaid dresses there too! Thank you again Halie and Tesi for an amazing experience! I cannot wait for my dress to come in :)

    I absolutely LOVED working with Tesi Bridal. I can't thank their entire staff enough for bringing my vision to life. I had a full experience from purchasing my wedding gown, veil, some jewlery, custom alterations, and selecting my bridesmaids dresses and dresses for my mother and grandmother for my wedding. Tesi's has a beautiful selection of gowns and accessories in any budget. I was very impressed by the staff's dedication to customer service. This bridal shop has a family feel which is why I kept going back for more after I purchased my wedding gown there. At my initial appointment, the sales associate was so helpful in identifying which details of certain dresses I liked and didn't like which allowed me to find my dress at the first appointment! I gave the sales associate a budget and I ended up buying a dress that was nearly half the budget I had given her. That goes to show that they value a happy bride over a big price tag. I never once felt pressured into purchasing anything, it was just so easy with their friendly staff and great selection. The groomsmen bought their suits elsewhere, but Tesi's staff assisted me in figuring out which ties/shirts/suits best complimented my dress and the bridesmaids. The staff really just wanted to see my day come together for me. The custom alterations were wonderful. It completely transformed the dress into a look that was uniquely mine and so many people were raving about my dress saying it was the most elegant and beautiful wedding dress they'd ever seen. If you're looking for your wedding or special occasion, I definitely recommend Tesi Bridal!

    Thank you to all of my girls at Tesi's from the bottom of my heart!! From the minute my mom & I walked in we felt at ease... Which was surprising because we had 3 months until the wedding and still no dress! We found my wedding gown that same day!! Through all of the fittings, alterations, shoes, earrings, and above and beyond service... They were all there every step of the way with a smile! I couldn't have asked for more! Everyone there is helpful, knowledgeable, and sweet!! And to top it off they made getting all of the tuxes a breeze!! Thank you so much again!! Love you all!! Xoxo, Stef

    I found my dress at Tesi after looking at 6 other places in Philadelphia and New Jersey! I walked in and was immediately comforted and told "you WILL find your dress here" - well they were right! The team was easy to work with and able to schedule my fittings far in advance. This was helpful since I lived in Philly and it was an hour drive each way. I also found my shoes, hair accessory, and beautiful cathedral length veil here!!! Thank you Tesi Bridal!!

    Words can't describe how unbelievable TESI Bridal & Formal is. My Mom had found this store and we both had no idea what to expect since we are from Philadelphia and didn't know the area too well. We decided to give it a go. The moment I walked in I was greeted by Halie who was running my appointment. I told her my style and she picked a few options for me. I had such a blast trying dresses on with her as my appointment person because she has such a great personality and is so funny! She ended up picking my dream dress on that first appointment and I ended up getting it that day. She knew EXACTLY what I was looking for and just nailed it.

    From there, Halie continued to run all my fitting appointments and I can't even tell you how spot on her intuition is when it comes to the fit of dresses and how they should look and feel. I would say one thing about an area I was uncomfortable with and she knew exactly how to fix it and was able to direct the seamstress in such a way that there was zero confusion on what needed to be fixed or done. She is just beyond, beyond talented. She always made me feel so great and comfortable. Then came time for the veil fitting -- I wanted to wear my Mom's veil which was in great condition but a bit overwhelming at the top (lots of material). I was so bummed that I couldn't wear it, but Halie came up with the best alternative -- she suggested that we just remove the top piece at a certain angle that would absolutely keep the delicate look of the veil and keep the same shape, but just remove the excess. My Mom and I were a bit nervous, but we had full confidence in Halie already and went with her advice. Again, BEYOND spot on. I was so so happy with how it turned it. Again it just proves how intuitive and talented she is -- she truly knows her stuff.

    THANKKK YOU to Halie and Tesi and all the women over at TESI Bridal & Formal

    I originally found Tesi Bridal through Mori Lee's website as they were the only bridal shop in the area that carried the particular dress that I wanted. I worked with Haley (sp?) for most of my appointments and could not have been happier! They were very flexible and since I live about 2 hours away, they allowed me to book fitting appointments on Saturday's which they don't normally do. I even found the perfect Pronovias Veil at their shop. When it arrived over a year after being ordered (but still plenty of time before the wedding) Haley explained that the veil was actually discontinued, but they were able to convince the designer to make one more! I appreciated the fact that they didn't cause unnecessary stress by telling me I may have to pick another veil. They saw an issue and immediately came up with a solution. What more could you ask for?!? My fittings were minimal due to Mori Lee's hollow-to-hem measurements, but each seamstress that I saw was very professional and did exactly what I had requested, while also maintaining the integrity of the dress. Overall, I was 100% satisfied with my experience and would recommend this shop to anyone! Thank you Haley and the Tesi Team!
