From the minute we walked in the door, I had a feeling that this would be the place where I found "the one." The staff there is so helpful and friendly and totally low-pressure. If you are up front with them about your price range, they will help you stay within that. They do not pressure you at all. My advice: ask for Gail. She is the best bridal consultant I encountered anywhere, and at the end of the process, I felt like we could be friends--which means she went way above and beyond her job description. Also, the work of Christina, the seamstress, is nothing short of magic.

When you go here you really feel like a bride and like it is your special moment. They have a great variety of dresses. BEAUTIFUL more vintage looking dresses but also very modern dresses as well. The quality and service is definatly worth the price.

The people at princess bride were patient and wonderful! The assortment was almost too much and the communication of what do we do next was perfect.

Skip my review and read the ones on Yelp - they are all true and I experienced many of the same things. Horrible business, can't believe they get away with so much. Amazon.com should make dresses.
- Poor communication, I have not been contacted once since the purchase 7 months ago. We are two weeks out and still no dress, no contact initiated from the store ever, only if I'm checking on the status. I was not informed that the manufacturer was late, was not told the ship date, was not told when we passed the ship date what my expectation should be
- No refunds ever, even if they can't get the dress to you in time (which I'm pretty sure is illegal)
- No concessions. You'd think if a business couldn't deliver on time, they'd bend over backwards trying to make things right. Princess Bride does not do that. In fact, if you do not make an alterations appointment in time, then that's your fault, even if you cannot make the appointment until the dress arrrives (two weeks before the wedding)

I went to Princess Bride with a vague idea of what I wanted, but open to suggestions. After sitting down with me and listening to what I did (and did not) want, they let us browse through their wide selection of dresses and pick out ones to try on. I ended up choosing a dress off of the rack that needed just some slight alteration. Donna, the on-site alteration specialist, completely transformed my dress! I didn't think it was possible for me to love the dress any more than I did when I first got it, but she helped take it to the next level and it fit like a glove. I could not have asked for a more perfect dress to get married in! I truly felt like a princess on my wedding day!

Princess Bride couture is a gem tucked away in a corner of the Bothell Country village. The staff is friendly and helpful! I appreciated the many lace, vintage types of dresses that they carry.
My stylist was very nice but I wish she would have been a little more knowledgeable about different body types and what looks good on them. She wasn't very good and picking out dresses for me to try on.

I found my dress at a boutique closer to my home, they matched the price!!! Everyone I worked with was very nice and helpful. I liked that I had the option to email with the consultant. My only recommendation is hold on to your signed paper contract, I was almost over charged due to a typo!

All of the staff with A Princess Bride was amazing! Everyone was extremely helpful. Alterations were a bit costly, but well worth it!

I was so happy with the service here. I felt so cared for at my consultation and my consultant took such good care of me. When my dress did come in my alterations were done so quickly. I loved my dress so much!

The service was great, everyone was very happy to help and to share their ideas with me, the dress was nice, good quality for the price.

I loved coming to this shop. It may not have been as fancy as some of the downtown shops but it was a place that made me feel special ... and not just another customer. It was fun for my family to come along with me because they had their own cozy seating area to watch me come out of the dressing room. Plus, they could roam the shop as well. Great shop!

Don't be fooled by the great staff working on the floor. My experience started out great, until it looked like my dress wasn't going to come in in time. The costumer services was the WORST I have ever experienced in my life. The consultant I had worked with told me my dress would be in late May, early June. My wedding was at the end of July. My dress finally came in the week of my wedding and I was running back and forth of alterations last minute and had to pay twice as much for express service. Princess Bride didn't do anything to make the situation better, they told me that I was basically lying that I had been told my dress would arrive before my wedding. My wedding date was on the contract I signed, and they told me they had until end of August to get my dress. That makes a lot of sense that I would order a dress that was scheduled to get in after my wedding date, right? I really thought this place was great until there was a bump in the road and Princess Bride had no sympathy for me and offered me nothing to make up for the mistake they had made. The owner refused to talk to me . She clearly has not respect for her costumers and is only in this business to make money. Running all over town to get your dress and have it altered and making sure your accessories and shoes and veil all work together is not what you want to be doing the week of your wedding and the staff will not be on your side if anything goes wrong. Stay away from this store!

Hadn't even done any shopping yet and went to the Seattle Wedding Expo. This was the second booth I went to and like 5th dress I tried and knew it was the one. They have a great selection. Their booth sale saved me a ton.

I found a gorgeous dress there, and the ladies who helped me look were great, but all of the follow up was less than stellar. Phone calls went unreturned, including inquiries about delivery dates, etc. A good place to find a great deal off the rack, but if they have to do any ordering for you, I would be careful.

This was my last stop to find my wedding gown. At this point, I had a favorite at each place. However, when I arrived at Princess Bride, I knew this is the place that I am going to purchase my dress. From the time I walked in, they were so genuine and wanting to help me find my dream dress. The dress came earlier than expected and the alterations department was awesome! There was one flat fee for all alterations and the dress fit me perfectly! I highly recommend at least going to try on dresses at this salon since they have such a great selection and service.

They have a beautiful shop with lots of great selections, however the sizing on my bridesmaid's dresses were a complete disaster.
Two of my girls who aren't that big to begin with, were told they had to order larger custom sizes at $50 extra...when the dresses came in BOTH girls' dresses were HUGE and they had to spend even more money to get them alterred.
One of my bridesmaid's tried to contact the store to see if a refund could be made, as far as I know the issue has not been resolved.

Beautiful dresses. My only concern would be to order your dress way in advance. I ordered my dress in December for my wedding in June and was told it should be here by April but then after ordering it they said it would come in the beginning of june. Of course, I was stressed since my wedding was the end of June. It ended up coming the end of May and was altered by their seamstress really fast.

Very satisfied with their service. I found the perfect dress with no doubt

This is the first and only place I went to find my dress.
They have several dresses to meet any budget.
My husband and I paid for 80% of our wedding so I needed to keep all my costs low.
Their consultants are great! Mine helped me find several dresses to fit our vintage italian theme, and the second I tried on my dress, I knew it was the one. She also helped me get the price down by adding a few extra discounts :)
In addition, I didn't have to do much in the way of remembering to do stuff... they called me with reminders, sent me emails, and were so great the whole time.
Plus, the alterations were great!
It's just a wonderful place :)
