A great shopping experience

Paula's was my first stop on my search for a wedding gown and it was such a great experience. I would highly recommend making an appointment. They have a wide variety of gowns and a good selection of 'curvy' sizes. It was so nice being able to try on gowns that fit, even being a curvy bride. The dressing rooms are large and well lit and Chelsea was excellent in soliciting what I liked about each dress and bringing in recommendations based on how the other dresses were fitting and what I liked about each one. At the end, I did not feel pressured to purchase my gown and was welcome to take time to think about it. I would highly recommend making sure to make a stop at Paula's to make wedding dress shopping an enjoyable experience.

Great Dresses

This was the second place I went dress shopping, after not finding anything I liked at another shop I was worried that I was asking for too much in a dress. At Paula's I had the opposite problem and had too many that I liked, but found the one that just tugged my heartstrings. We had the place to ourselves for my appointment, despite it being a Saturday. I liked that she let me browse the dresses to choose a few I liked and once she got glimpses into what I liked she was great at making a couple additional suggestions. I really wanted a cape instead of a veil, while they did not have any in stock for me to try on, Paula took the time to go through options she could order for me and helped me pick on that matched aspects of my dress. Dress and cape arrived right when she said they would and when I went to pick them up they had them ready for me to try on and she helped me take a couple photos as I was there alone to pick up. They now have their own seamstress, but I have not had alterations done yet. Overall I loved their selection of dresses and Paula was nothing but accommodating, my mother-in-law loved the bridal dresses and went there for her MOG dress and had a great experience.

Amazing experience shopping for my wedding dress! I was shocked when I went to other places and was treated so poorly but Paul's turned the whole experience around for me! She was super friendly and careing and full of great advice! She is super knowledgeable on picking dresses that both suited body and personality! I loved the experience so much I even went back to purchase a second dress!

Paula's Elegant Bride was a great choice! I went in not really knowing what kind of dress I wanted, they were patient and helped me find the perfect dress for me! They were flexible with the price as I bought my dress off the rack, and provided with the know-how to preserve my dress until the big day :) I would recommend Paula's Bridal to everyone looking for a special dress.
