I will start out saying I have been a wedding planner for over 15 years. My nephew was is getting married and the bridesmaids dresses his intended had picked out were at Bridal warehouse in Louisville,Ky. We all gathered there and no one greeted us. I personally had to keep going to find someone to answer questions. Finally I started pulling dresses since it was apparent no one was going to help us.We finally decided on a dress and the ladies proceeded to get measured. My one niece was very resistant about order a size 28, however they were the "experts" and convinced us that was the size to order. The next day I called back to the store and spoke with the manager Stephanie to inform her of the lack of customer service. She did not seem interested at all that we received that type of service. I then proceeded to call the Elizabethtown store. I spoke to a wonderful , gracious person by the name of Jackie who listened and made me feel much better. I apreciated her so much!! Fast forward to months later and our dresses arrived. My niece that had ordered the size 28 picked up her dress and tried it on, it fell down off of her!!!! She did not loose weight, she was simply measured improperly. I called the store and spoke to yet again Stephanie the store manager who was rude, insensitive and very non- caring. All I wanted was for to acknowledge that if there was an issue on their side that we would not have to pay for alterations. She also explained we would need to pay a rush fee to have our dress done in time. The alterations lady had already said the dress would have to be re- made. Therefore my niece's dress will not look like everybody's else.Not once did Stephanie offer to assure me the problem could be resolved that they would work with us at all. As much as I hate to say this, I am just wondering now is it because we were black. I watched the first time we were in there of other clients that were greeted upon arrival. Just makes me think. I did call Jackie back at the Elizabethtown store who once again showed concern, professionalism in all aspects. We decided not to chance having the alterations done there since they show they really were not concerned at all about our business. Why give them more money?? I was hoping this was a fluke but as I have read other reviews, I know we are not the only ones who have had this issues. Moral of THIS story... DO NOT go into Bridal Warehouse in Louisville, Ky. Perhaps a dose of customer service might help this group. Jackie is great, they could take some notes from her especially the store manager.
I have loved every minute of my experience with Bridal Warehouse and staff. When I began looking for my wedding dress last June, I went to another store that was just horrible. When i arrived for my appointment at Bridal Warehouse, we were greeted with warm, friendly staff. I told my consultant Emily what I was looking for and she said she had a dress in mind. Pulling this dress along with 10 others, I had tons of options but in the similar style I was looking for. Turns out, the dress she had in mind for me was absolutely amazing! Each time I have gone there since then, to select bridesmaid dresses, fittings, picking out my veil, I have received the same wonderful treatment as I did that very first day. Emily is always excited to see me and ask about the wedding. Jill, my tailor, has me worry-free and feeling beautiful. I couldn't have imagined a better experience while planning the best day of my life. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE everything about Bridal Warehouse and their staff.
