    Amazing Experience!

    Every Bride NEEDS TO GO TO BELLA MIA!!! Do the pamper experience. I went with all my bridesmaids my mom and my future mother in law, it was the best time.
    They were super respectful and caring and kind and considerate. They helped me with every dress where to stand and how to get into the dress. I knew my dress when she brought it in and placed it on the hook, before I even had it on, once I put it on, it was a flood of emotions. I finally felt like a bride!! Thank you Bella Mia for all your help!

    So happy with my dress and buying experience!

    I am so happy with the dress I got from Bella Mia bridal! As a curvy girl, the thought of trying on wedding dresses terrified me but Bella Mia made it such a smooth and enjoyable experience. I'm so happy with the dress I picked, I've never felt to beautiful!

    Best selection

    I went to many different bridal stores and found that Bella Mia had the best selection and was great with all alteration appointments leading up to the big day.

    Amazing! Don't shop anywhere else!

    I have now shopped at 6 different bridal boutiques and this was by far my best experience. The staff are so knowledgeable and attentive and the way they clip and pin the dresses so you can actually see what they will look like in your size is amazing. I also want to add that I did not know that this store specifically catered to plus size brides, and I am not plus sized but I still found the perfect dress there and was able to picture what it would look like when ordered in my size.

    The consultants were amazing and I felt like they were really listening to everything I liked and disliked about each dress I tried on until they found the perfect one. There selection was fantastic, and then when I mentioned there were a few things I would change about the dress, they were completely onboard and got their pins out to show me what their alterations expert could do and I fell in love.

    I was to buy my dress here just because the experience was so amazing, that and they helped me find THE PERFECT DRESS.

    I literally cannot say enough good things about the appointment I had here.

    So happy with my dress

    Bella Mia was the second place I went for my wedding dress

    I bought that day! I loved the staff.
    I went between two dresses about 6 times and they were so calm and made me comfortable.

    I can鈥檛 wait for the fitting process

    Highly recommend

    Tailored to you!

    I went to so many boutiques but Bella Mia was such an amazing experience because their selection for curvier brides cannot be beat. I knew I wanted a dress with the works of lace and beading but in the states that was hard to come by a dress that would have both in my budget(Less than $1700 US), I found the perfect dress at Bella Mia and with the exchange rate in came in right at the budget. I love all things vintage and 1920s/30s/40's and I always envisioned a dress with a long romantic train, a sweetheart neckline, lace, beading, and longer romantic flutter sleeves. As you can imagine that is a tall order, its hard enough to find a dress you love, but finding a plus size one that comes close to what you pictured is really tough. Most of the boutiques I went to had very pretty dresses but they weren't built in a way where sleeves could be added (I hate my arms so this was a must for me). Anna and Olivia took that challenge in stride.They picked dresses that they knew could be altered in the way that I envisioned but had all the other elements I was looking for. I tried on 5 or 6 and the one I ended up picking was one I didn't think to try on but they thought I should try it on just in case and it ended up being the one!! (dress was Nellie by Martin Thornburg/ David Tutera) and they set me up with a pro in alterations who made me the flutter sleeves I have always wanted.They even had beautiful beaded fabric in the back that I bought to put on the sleeves to give me that 1940's glam. My guests at my wedding loved my dress and thought it was so me. I felt so lucky to have found the kind and patient ladies at Bella Mia who pretty much gave me the experience of making my own custom work of art at a price a normal girl could afford. I cannot say thank you enough to them!!

    Thank you Bella Mia Bridal, I had an amazing experience at your shop on Friday evening. It was the first day of your 50% off of 50% of your stock and I wanted to come in to figure out what fit my body and if there was any style I would be interested in to turn my moms dress into. I was greeted by Olivia and her friend from collage. Offered us water and great Disney tunes in the background. I got to first look around and pick a few dresses that I liked. Olivia helped me into them and I had two very good contenders. After that she went around the store and picked a bunch of different styles. Alot of them didn't look great but it helped me zoom in on the contenders. I was at the point of this journey were I felt like I was at a cross-road, I loved the unique and beautiful dress that was on me but was still worried what my mom would think. They were not able to make it (due to living far away) and I said "if only I could facetime them" Olivia spoke up and said " wait we have an ipad" So my parents got to see how much this dress represented me, helped me pick out and a hair piece, and at the last moment Anna the owner came out with a bow that is part of the dress and that just sealed the deal. I cannot thank you ladies enough. this was the best shopping experience of my life.

    Bella Mia Bridal's reply:

    Thank you for your comment. I am not sure we received pictures for your day. We would to see them and especially the bow!!
