"After reading all the positive reviews about Bridal Bells, it was the first bridal shop I went to, in order to begin shopping for my bridal gown. The service was excellent from the minute I walked in the door. Barbara, the store owner, listened to the ideas I had and looked at some of the pictures I brought in of styles I liked. She selected some dresses for me to begin trying on. The fourth dress I tried on ended up being "the one". I could tell when my sister's and mother's eyes started tearing up once I put it on. Although, I was apprehensive that finding the perfect wedding dress could be this easy!! So, I visited a few other shops in CT, big and small, and tried on several other gowns which, in turn, convinced me that the gown at Bridal Bells was positively the perfect gown for me. I was so thrilled with the quality, service and professional that I received at Bridal Bells that I
chose to order the bridesmaid's dresses from there as well. Barbara was wonderful at working with myself and all of my bridesmaids to accommodate our schedules for fittings and keeping me updated on the progress of all of the dresses along with working within our budget so, all of the dresses and accessories were affordable but, still stunning! I was also happy with the alterations, Barbara's mother, Henryka, does the
alterations and she is a top notch seamstress. Myself and a couple girls in my wedding party had some changes in sizes from the day the order was placed to the day of our final fittings and Barbara and Henryka didn't even blink an eye before they assured me the dresses would fit perfectly and there was no need to stress. They were absolutely RIGHT!! All of the dresses fit perfectly and looked fantastic from 8am to 12 midnight!! I've been in several weddings as a bridesmaid and had to order dresses from other shops
and Bridal Bells Boutique was by the far, the best shop I've dealt with. They truly are gifted at helping to make your wedding planning stress free and turning you into the gorgeous bride you dreamed of!" JanetClarke
"My experience at this shop was fantastic! It goes to show that you don't have to spend a fortune for a beautiful wedding gown. After reading the reviews for Bridal Bells on Wedding Reports, I put them on the top of my list to shop for my dress. After maybe only
trying a handful of gowns I chose one of their new arrivals. I also purchased my bridesmaids dresses here and I have to say the alterations were perfect. I would definitely recommend this shop to any bride!" Happy Bride
"Barbara at Bridal Bells is great. She gave honest opinions of what she thought would work for me and she was right. The selection was good for a small shop. If she thought it didn't look good, she'd let me know. I didn't bring a camera because I wasn't sure I could use it but she said pictures were no problem and she very nicely took pictures of my 2 favorites and e-mailed them to me later. I highly recommend looking at this shop. Barbara made my first experience looking at dresses very enjoyable." Stephanie
"Barbara was amazing. She did not pressure me and took the time to tell me what she thought about each dress. She has an unlimited supply of full price and half price dresses, not to mention she was the only bridal shop that had the exact dress I wanted out of a magazine after about 20 calls to area shops! She knew exactly which dress I meant, and pulled it out for me as soon as I got there! Bridal Bells is a hidden gem
and I would highly suggest visiting her shop for the ultimate bridal experience!" Carrie
"My entire bridal party, including 3 bridesmaids, 6 junior bridesmaids, and myself, purchased our dresses from Bridal Bells Boutique. Compared to other retailers in the area, the service we received at Bridal Bells was exceptional and their merchandise was
very competitively priced. Bridal Bells has a large selection of dresses in a variety of styles and colors. The staff is very helpful and knowledgeable; they understood my style
and needs and went out of their way to accommodate the whole bridal party.
Bridal Bells is a convenient one stop shop. In addition to the dress, I was able to purchase all of my bridal accessories including matching veil, jewelry and undergarments. The selection of jewelry and accessories extended to the whole bridal party not only through the in store selection but also through the many catalogues. The girls were very pleased with how well the jewelry matched their dresses and the whole elegant ensemble.
As a new bride, I remember very well the stress associated with wedding planning, especially finding the perfect dress. I visited many bridal shops in the area but when I discovered Bridal Bells Boutique, I knew I was in good hands—it was a perfect match!"
"The service at Bridal Bells was great--very helpful and accommodating, and not at all pushy. Variety of bridal dresses and private, roomy dressing room. The friendly climate in this store definitely makes looking for wedding dresses fun and exciting. Check it out!"
"I attended a Bridal show last fall where Bridal Bells Boutique hosted a bridal show with gowns and bridesmaids dresses. I had already booked an appointment at a more “popular" bridal chain but decided to check this boutique out anyway. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. They had a great selection for a smaller shop. They listened to what I said I wanted, offered suggestions and helped me select the gown of my dreams! They had late hours during the week so I could get there after work for my fittings and were very patient while my 5 bridesmaids tried on different dresses. I would definitely recommend Bridal Bells Boutique to anyone I know. My gown was all I ever
hoped for and my wedding party was absolutely stunning and their dresses were perfect. I appreciate all they did for myself and my bridesmaids, and for helping
make my wedding so fantastic." Kate
"My Mom suffers left sided paralysis due to a stroke this past summer. My brother will be getting married next month and Mom was in need of a mother of the groom outfit for the wedding. Bridal Bells was the perfect choice as it was not far from home. The
boutique was very clean and the gowns were beautiful and the staff extremely helpful and quite knowledgeable in materials, color and alterations. The dressing room was really big and private for our needs. Barbara assisted me with my Mom's handicap and
really went out of her way for us. All of our needs were met and we are very pleased with both the service and sale. Thank you for you kindness, compassion and service." Linda
"I found Bridal Bells at a wedding show at The Colony in Vernon, CT. Immediately I like the demeanor of the owner and thought I would check them out more on-line. After browsing their website, I found a dress that I just loved. My bridesmaids and I went to the store to find the dress, but they did not have the exact one I wanted. They did however have similar dresses and let me try on as many as I wanted. After some thought, I decided to order the dress from an on-line picture only! I went in for my measurements and put down a deposit, and Bridal Bells ordered the dress for me. They had wonderful communication and e-mailed me the minute the dress came in. A few weeks ago I went in to see the dress in person and it was better that I could have ever imagined!! It was gorgeous and almost fit perfectly!! My wedding is October 14, 2006 and I have yet to get the very little alterations that I need done, but I am not worried one bit! My experience so far has been amazing!" Julie
"As a very controlling mother of the Bride I was happy to relinquish dress alterations to the very personable and professional staff at Bridal Bells. My daughter's gown was purchased at another location and was the perfect size at the time, six-months before the
wedding. We knew the gown needed a finished hem and pressing but when she began losing weight the dress required additional alterations. This very friendly mother-daughter team made the alterations, suggested a bustle and worked within our very limited time-frame. We were always greeted warmly. As a full-service bridal shop, we were offered tiaras, and jewelry sets to accessorize our gown. We were never pushed into a sale and I was most surprised when the staff agreed their selection in jewelry was just too fancy for our very simple gown. All our questions and concerns were addressed. Our day went very well and the bride was radiant in a perfectly fitted gown." Karen B.
