Great staff & service, beautiful dresses!

I had the pleasure of having Rebecca as my sale associate and she was incredible! She listened to my likes and dislikes and made me feel so comfortable. We went to a couple other places after Helen's and they were all a complete let down compared to Helen's. There was no comparison. We also got our bridesmaid dresses there and everyone loved their experience. Thank you again, Helen's Bridal!!

Beautiful selection

I got my wedding dress from Helen's and also found my bridesmaid dresses here. The girls and owner were all so lovely to work with. Helens was the 2nd store I tried and as soon as I tried on my dress I knew it was the one. They have a good selection and you get to browse through yourself as well. I wish I could wear my dress again it is just soooooo beautiful. Would definitely recommend Helens

Amazing place !

What an AMAZING place! I had Rene who helped me with my initial appointment of trying on all the styles, and Saturday when I said YES! She was absolutely amazing, so kind, and never rushed me or pressured me to buy! These consultants really care about making a memorable time for brides to pick their perfect dress. I can鈥檛 rate this place high enough. 馃槉

Amazing service and selection

What an incredible experience. The staff is kind and knowledgeable. The dress selection was great. They really make you feel welcome and special. The seamstress Stacey is an absolute miracle worker and is just the absolute best to work with.

I Felt Great!

Rebecca was my consultant, and she was absolutely phenomenal. We tried on so many dresses of many variations. The appointment felt like meeting up with friends, though I had just met the women working. I highly recommend it!
