When I first went to the shop in September 2013 I had an amazing consultant who dedicated all of her time and effort solely to me. I found a beautiful dress and I was very happy with the business. Fast forward to February 2014 and I have a Saturday appointment. I specifically set up this appointment after a hair trial, so I could see my hair style AND my dress to shop for a veil that would work. The shop was very busy and the lady at the desk somehow managed to acknowledge 2 people that arrived after me (and were standing behind me) before me.After I told her I came for my first fitting and to shop for veils she came back with the dress ready to go. I said I wanted a fitting, not to take it home. She was the one who occasionally helped me, while running to the counter and back. I didn't have a consultant specifically for me, despite the fact that I made an appointment weeks prior.When I asked to try on the sample dress (for confirmation of the size, since mine fit differently) she sighed and said, "Uhh right now?"Really? When else???She came back with the dress and tried it on me. When she went to take it off, she also started unbuttoning the store-provided bustier in an effort to get in me into my own clothes and out of the door as soon as possible. She tossed me a slip to cover myself while she pretty much stripped me. She quickly flung the door open and left while I tried to hide my nearly naked self. I got into my own clothes and left. Before I walked out of the door she asked, "Are you okay?"I wanted to respond "What do you think???"I found out later the rude woman was the owner. My consultant, Stephanie Ostot is INCREDIBLE. I highly recommend making your appointments with her and making sure your appointment is ONLY with her. When I made my appointment I requested her and they told me they would let her know. Come to find out that she was double booked and didn't even know that I had requested an appointment with her.

I went to Elegant Bridal the day after I became engaged based on a glowing referral of the shop and the consultant Tracey. I went just to take a peak at the shop but Tracey was up front, available and asked me if I wanted to try on somegowns. She sat down with my mother and myself to get an idea of what I wanted. After the consultation we were taken to a large changing room big enough to fit a number of people. Tracy brought the dresses to me instead if leaving me to drown in a sea of organza. Needless to say I found my dress that day by the second one that I tried. A dress that I might add I would have never thought to try if not for Tracey. Yes, I did try looking at other boutiques but the service was nothing in comparison. I would be left alone to figure out what I wanted to try on. Not only that, the consultant that was suppose to be there for me would be splitting her attention amongst numerous other brides. I was not important!!Thanks to Elegant Bridal and Tracey for making me feel special and making the choosing of my dress memorable!!!

I experienced an exceptional business transaction with the small business owner Mrs. Sho Ane. In the past in 2009 I have purchase a wedding gown from her in hopes of being married to a wonderful man. Things didn't work out the way I thought it would so instead I have to exchange the wedding gown in for store credit. In the process Mrs. Sho Ane was very understanding and work closely with me to make sure I was highly satisfied with her business. I want to extend my appreciation to Mrs. Sho Ane letting her know how much she was really appreciated in this matter. In the future I plan on doing business with her and letting all my associates know how well she works her business with others making sure all needs are meet. Nonetheless being a small business does have its advantages sometimes, and I'm grateful I choose Sho Ane's Design Studio Bridal and Formals. Sho Ane thanks for being a wonderful an understanding owner. Ms. Angela M. Caldwell

I was down on Broad Street a couple of months back on a Saturday night so the shop wasn't open but when I walked by I fell in love with the dress on the right side of the window display!! ���� I stood there for I know at least 5 minutes admiring the dress. It was gorgeous! I told my friends that When I get married, that's the dress I want to do so in. I took a picture of it through the glass& all! Before we got ready to leave I even walked back to the front of the store to look at it one more time. I somehow no longer have the pictures of this dress but I'm seriously thinking about going to buy the dress if it's available!!

I loved my experience at Elegant Bridals. The consultant was friendly and worked with me as long as i needed (which was a LONG time cause i'm so picky) to find the perfect dress. They were wonderful about getting the alterations done after i bought the dress and steamed and pressed it for me for my bridal portraits and all. They were so friendly and nice to me and even called after the wedding to congratulate me! They are the best bridal shop in Augusta for sure, MUCH better than Davids Bridal where I felt like one of a million brides while trying on dresses right next to many other brides.

My fiancé and I was looking for a non-traditional wedding dress. He had googled some places and our first stop was Sho-Ane's. Let me just say it was our only stop. All I had to do was tell her what I was looking for and bam... I had the most perfect dress for me. She is so friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. I left feeling like if I had gone any where else, I would've been cheating myself. If you shop at Sho-Ane's, you won't be disappointed.

This place is really nice. I went in to get a wedding gown under $1500 in a size 6, they had a huge selection of second hand dresses in amazing condition which was perfect for me. They also had samples of designers to order in case you can't find a proper dress you like. Thank god they had a ton of styles, and a wonderful lady (I don't remember the name) was amazing she found the dream wedding dress for me. Thank you.

I was a little hesitant to order my wedding dress online, but it cost less to order it. They responded to all my email inquiries within a few hours and I was able to have my dress shortened before they sent it to me, which saved on alterations.

I took my little sister to Sho-Ane's Design Studio to find a prom dress for her. It was really hard to find a prom dress for a fuller sized girl, but we ended up finding a beautiful strapless white gown for her. Thank you so much Sho-Ane's! :)
