A dream come true!
I had such a wonderful experience with Alyson at this beautiful bridal salon. Not only was the entire process easy and fun, but Alyson was also able to assess my wants and needs in a timely manner. I ended up getting my dream dress that day that makes me feel like a princess. I truly feel so happy I got to experience such a hassle-free and amazing process. Thank you Alyson and staff for all that you do! :)Sent on 03/23/2020

Absolutely the best wedding dress shopping experience! Teresa was amazing, patient, and kind. She truly loves what she does and it shows. They have an awesome selection of dresses and their showroom makes you feel like a princess. I have been to 4 other wedding dress shops in the area and none compare to this store and their staff! I found my absolute dream dress here!Sent on 09/03/2020

Couldn’t be happier
Im not getting married until 2021 decided to start the dress shopping early as I’m not the person to get excited about trying on dresses or even wearing them!Sent on 03/03/2020
My consultant Alyson was beyond amazing and budget conscious, she took the time to ask questions about my style and what I like and don’t like! She quickly figured out what I liked and didn’t like! With one of her choices she even made my best friend cry ❤️
I went in not expecting to come home with a dress from my very first visit.
Alyson thank you so much for your help!
Truly Forever Bridal's reply:Diana: Thanks so much for your feedback regarding your experience at Truly Forever Bridal with our lovely Alyson.

Truly Forever Bridal will always be my number one recommendation in Tampa. They were extremely helpful and friendly. I am a younger bride so I was very nervous about how places would treat me and they were very professional and welcoming. We went during COVID and they practiced very safe protocol but allowed me to remove my mak when looking in the mirror so I could get the full effect. Nicole helped me. She was extremely sweet and encouraging. I never felt pressured or pushed when looking at gowns to make a decision or purchase. I found my dream dress and veil here. Thank you, Truly Forever Bridal!Sent on 09/09/2020
Truly Forever Bridal's reply:Destiny - Thank you so much for your sweet review of your time with Nicole at Truly Forever Bridal.

Amazing Experience - So Helpful!
After a negative experience in another bridal boutique i was confused about what style was best for me - Teresa was so helpful and encouraging and took the time to help me figure out what was best for me to narrow down my search. I really appreciated her time and energy. Even though i did not find my dress, the experience was very positive and they did have lots of beautiful gowns with gorgeous atmosphere. I would definitely recommend.Sent on 08/11/2020

Prepare to be Amazed!
This is about my experiences at the Tampa Westshore location: I am so grateful that my mom was the one to find Truly Forever Bridal! After an awful experience at David's Bridal, we went in to Truly Forever, no appointment, no expectations and I was feeling rather broken after my experiences with David's. We were immediately met by Alyson and everything changed. When I stated that we did not have an appointment, it was a non issue. Something else that caught me off guard, Alyson took the time to ask questions, get a feel for my style / what I like and then in a flash, began picking out dresses. Now, what I loved about this shop is that it isn't overwhelmingly large and everything there, that's what they have. Not the same dress, over and over. Different styles, different colors, everything to reflect individuality. Back to Alyson being awesome. As she began pulling dresses, there was one that she pulled that just made my eyes light up - it was not something that I would have picked right away but there was just something about the dress. Now, I cannot say too much about the awesomeness that was before me for apparent reasons. Meanwhile, during the pulling of the dresses, we were told, you want cap sleeves, we can add them. You want straps. No problem. NO ONE has ever offered that before so of course, I was even more impressed. The dress that was before me, I couldn't stop touching. The fabric. The detail. Everything was perfect. So that was the dress I tried on first and it fit like a glove. Oh it doesn't stop there. The dress had a bit too much "poof" for my stumpy frame - no problem! That was a quick fix as well! And there it was. The perfect dress. Everything I had wanted. Because Alyson took time to understand my style and to see pictures of the venue, she got an idea in her mind which brought my ideas to life. With one dress tried on there, that was it. I said yes to the dress. So. If you are a bride looking for an amazing dress, skip David's. Go to Truly Forever Bridal. Their prices are better. Their quality doesn't even compare. AND the team there, they are amazing and are there to make your experience special - and that they did. To make it better, there was a coupon for "x" off "x" spent - definitely and a tux rental with $169 off the price. You cannot and will not get this sort of experience elsewhere.Sent on 11/05/2019
Truly Forever Bridal's reply:Wow Sharon - thanks so much for sharing your feedback about your experience with our Alyson! We are so pleased she was able to take you from "I Dream" to "I Do!" and you were able to experience the five star service that we strive to offer to each and every bride. We are lucky enough to work with guests at an exciting time in their lives and we strive to create a memorable experience that culminates in you finding the gown of your dreams. We can't be more excited that you find "the one" and wish you all the best as you continue wedding planning!!

The perfect experience
From COVID complications to the pressures of finding THE dress I went in thinking that wedding dress shopping was going to be extremely overwhelming.Sent on 08/11/2020
However, walking into Truly Forever changed that instantly. I was greeted by Laura with a huge smile, despite the mask that she was wearing, and swept away into the lovely shop. Unlike other shops I visited that day, Laura did not rush the appointment and as there is only one appointment at I time I felt super special. I felt less like I was at a used car dealership and more like I was at a luxury spa.
The dress selection was vast and varied in all shapes and sizes! The world was my oyster. Laura listed to everything I had to say and waited for me to make up my mind about a dress before taking me back into the dressing room. I could tell that she was cataloging dresses in her mind as I made comments and very quickly we came to MY dress.
Even still I asked if I could go to my other dress appointment and try on other dresses. Laura didn't waiver under the potential lost sale and told me that even if it was after hours she would make sure she was available if I decided to return.
If you get the chance, book an appointment here. You won't be disappointed.

I said yes to the dress!
Alyson gave me the best experience! I didn't think I would find something because of how picky I am, but she was able to please me and my mom!!! She was amazing at helping me find my dream dress! Highly recommended!Sent on 09/05/2020

Amanda Barbour · Getting married on 04/24/2021
THE BEST!!! I went to the Sarasota store. I couldn’t have asked for a better dress shopping experience!! Laura was my consultant and she was soo sweet and helpful! And so was every single person in the store. After I found my dream dress at an incredible price, we decided to have my Mom look for a mother of the bride dress and Laura helped her find the perfect dress, too! It was one of the most special days and made for an unforgettable experience. We are so thankful we chose to go there! I went to David’s Bridal a month ago and tried on a few dresses but Truly Forever is so much better because: (1) the quality of the dresses is far superior, (2) the consultants actually get to know your style and pick out dresses for you to try on rather than simply helping you put on the dresses you picked yourself, and (3) you get to support a local business with such a nice owner. If you are looking for either a wedding or formal dress, book your appointment now!!Sent on 02/17/2019
Truly Forever Bridal's reply:Hi Amanda! Thanks so much for your kind review. We loved getting to know you and your sweet family. Laura loved working with you to find the dress of your dreams. Your sweet dad's reaction touched all of our hearts. As well, she so enjoyed getting to assist your lovely mom to find the perfect gown. All in all it was a truly magical day! We appreciate your feedback about our gowns as we strive to offer a vast selection that will appeal to all our brides individual tastes.

10/10 would recommend!!
Alyson was wonderful at helping me pick out my dream dress. She was honest and down to earth, always reassuring me that they would do all that they could to make my dress perfect when it came time for alterations. She made me laugh and interacted with my family during the whole process. She was welcoming and professional, and I’d recommend her to any bride looking for their dream dress. Thanks to the owner Mrs. Laura for allowing me to visit her beautiful store and introducing me to her business of making dreams come true for so many brides. Thank you all at Truly Forever Bridal!

Sydney Navarro · Getting married on 01/16/2021
On February 29, my mom, sisters and I went to my appointment at Truly Forever Bridal in Tampa. Looking back, I’m so blessed to have had such an incredible experience with this team of amazing women before COVID-19 hit the United States.
After filling out the paperwork, Tessi Crawford, the General Manager, walked me through the process of selecting different styles of dress within my price preferred style and price range. Tessi was so considerate of how overwhelmed I get when shopping and she was so patient with me.
I selected 4 dresses, including 1 my mom selected thinking I would love it.
Ladies... listen to your mom 🥰
Not only was this the very first wedding dress I ever tried on and my first bridal appointment since getting engaged, but the dress fit me PERFECTLY. I cannot stress this enough. It wasn’t what I thought I wanted, but it turned out to be exactly what I envisioned for my wedding.
Tessi helped me put the dress on, zipped me up, and we both gasped.. in absolute shock!! As I walked out, I felt so beautiful and when I saw my mom’s and sisters’ reactions, I knew this was it. I couldn’t believe my luck.
I have to add that I was supposed to have this appointment two weeks prior, but my mom had the flu. Turns out, the dress arrived 2 days before my rescheduled appointment. I would’ve never found this dress if I didn’t reschedule. Things happen for a reason right?!
I tried on a few more dresses, went to a second appointment that day, but I couldn’t get that dress out of my head. I went back that afternoon and picked it up!!
If you’re looking for your wedding dress, come to Truly Forever Bridal and ask to work with Tessi. I promise you won’t regret it. ♥️Sent on 05/24/2020

Plus size bride finds dream dress (in budget!!)
I had the most amazing time at Truly Forever Bridal! The whole experience was incredible. I was overwhelmed by the idea of wedding dress shopping, but the ladies here made it so much easier. As a plus size women trying on clothes tends to be an unpleasant experience. However, my consultant Julia made the whole experience wonderful. She showed me dresses that were in my price/size range, listen to what I needed, and celebrated with us when I found The One. The location is beautiful, the little details (like water for me and my matron of honor) made it the perfect experience.Sent on 07/20/2020
Truly Forever Bridal's reply:Sarah - Thanks so much for your feedback regarding your experience with Julia at Truly Forever Bridal.

I said YES to the dress!
During all of this Covid-19 madness, I was having a really hard time getting an appointment ANYWHERE to try on dresses but I was able to get an appointment here within a week of calling. Both of my soon to be sister-in-laws got their dresses here so I knew I HAD to see what they had! Rebekah was absolutely amazing! She really listened and helped me pick out some of the most beautiful gowns. I would 10/10 recommend all brides go in to see her. She was just so helpful and made the experience super fun. AND SHE HELPED ME SAY YES TO THE ABSOLUTE MOST BEAUTIFUL DRESS I COULD HAVE IMAGINED!!! I loved everything about this experience and will tell everyone I know all about it!Sent on 06/08/2020

Definitely go here
This place is absolutely amazing! Alyson was such a joy to work with! She sat down and was excited and listened to what I said. As we were trying on dresses she would bring me new ones and went with the flow of what I loved. I ended up falling in love with a dress that need a bigger boob size than it had and they did absolutely everything they could so I could have the dress of my dreams! I would definitely recommend this place to every bride.Sent on 07/24/2020

Truly Forever Bridal Should Be Your First Stop!
After going to two smaller bridal stores, I decided to try Truly Forever Bridal because it is the largest in Florida and I figured they had to have something that I loved. Everyone was friendly when we arrived and they had plenty of seating for my family while I filled out some information, which was nice. My consultant was Alyson and from the beginning she was very personable and friendly. She listened to what I had to say about what I wanted and every dress she pulled was something that I liked. As we tried on dresses, she helped me narrow down my options so I didn’t have twelve dresses to choose from at the end. She definitely helped me make decisions and was very patient as I tried to decide which dresses were keepers. After retrying two of the dresses, I finally decided on a dress that I absolutely love and cannot wait to wear when I marry my fiancé! Thank y’all so much for such an amazing time and helping me find my dress!!Sent on 12/18/2018

Rebekah your are AMAZING- thank you
I just bought my dress from Truly Forever Bridal Tampa yesterday and WOW, it’s was the best experience I could’ve hoped for! Rebekah was my consultant and she made me feel so incredible special and beautiful throughout the entire experience. She not only listen to what I wanted but also to my mom and group that came with me. But at the end of the day made sure I was being heard! She also truly took the time with me and didn’t make me feel rushed what so ever. It was my first time every trying on wedding dresses and I was a little nervous because of sizing. I’ve gained a lot of weight in the course of a year but have started to loose 20lbs already, but I still haven’t been feeling the best about my body. So my biggest fear was having to try on a dress to small for me. That was far from the case though!! There was not one dress that I tried on that didn’t come in my size (16/18). I think we pulled atleast 10+ dresses for me to try on and then some AND they were all different styles/designs with reasonable pricing. But they had SO MANY dresses in my size to pick and better yet MY DRESS that I tried on was literally MY DRESS. The one I tried on was the one I would be taking home so I don’t even have to wait for it! However, they will be cleaning the dress/fixing any imperfection that have happened. My dress mainly just needed to be clean then a button to be fixed, which I was told would take 3 weeks! It feels so nice to know that I’ll have my dress in a matter of a month! Then my veil that I got I’ll get in 16 weeks top! I can’t say thank you enough to Rebekah and the entire team from Truly Forever Bridal!!! You truly did make this experience better then I could’ve dreamed. THANK YOU!Sent on 03/01/2020

Eileen Popescu · Married on 07/11/2020
My experience here at Truly Forever Bridal was great all thanks to Beki! She was very kind and a great listener. As a young and first-time bride, I went in with not a lot of knowledge of wedding dresses. I knew what I did not like, but not so much what I did like. Beki helped me not only look for dresses that I liked but she made sure we stayed below my budget and even accommodated my family and their opinions! The dress I found was not my dream dress BUT I knew that after some alterations, it would be the best AND I got the dress for such an amazing price (originally $1200 and I got it for $250), it made it all the more better!!! I highly recommend this place! The have a lot of dresses and a pretty big variety - however, they seemed to be a bit limited on their smaller sizes but it all worked out anyways! The inside of the store is 100 times nicer than the outside; completely renovated and one light in my dressing room was flickering a lot and was totally annoying haha! Anyways, make sure to set an appointment and request Beki!Sent on 07/30/2019

Additionally, we are sprucing up our exterior to reflect the elegance of our interior. Beki enjoyed her time with you and was so happy to assist you. All the best to you!
