I had searched all over for a vintage swing dress for my wedding gown. At the end of the day my mom suggested we stop at this last boutique to see what they had available. We walked in and glanced at the dresses...not cheap but beautifully made and several styles. I stopped by the trunk show that was in the store that weekend- Nicole Miller. A dress caught my eye on the rack, so I decided to try it on though the price tag had made me pause. I tried it on and it was THE ONE. I have been married before and done the David Bridal route and didn't love the dress then. This dress at this store was amazing. They worked me in to let me try it on, fitting and gave the names of great seamstresses in the area. Please try Lupe. She's in north Austin and a wonderful grandmother and great-grandmother who has been designing and sewing bridal gowns for decades. She imparted wonderful wisdom to my mother and I...Unbridaled was a wonderful place, the staff friendly and helpful Thank you again, it was worth every penny!!

I came to Unbridaled after a miserable first attempt at dress shopping at another Austin bridal shop. The experience at Unbridaled was completely different - welcoming, awesome dresses, fun... I could go on and on. The ladies in the shop were totally cool and sweet, and I didn't feel awkward at all. They also have lots of different styles in a variety of price ranges. Make this your first stop, especially if you're an Austin bride who is looking for something other than a big old princess dress (although they have cute ones of those too!).

Amazing vintage styles! Perfect dress for me.

Although their selection is small I found two dresses that I adored but finally made a choice on the perfect one. The staff was very friendly and the dress I bought was actually a decent price for a small boutique store. The dress also came in a lot sooner than we thought it would, which was a surprising plus!

They staff was relaxed and easy to work with. I loved the selection of dresses they were right up my ally...nothing too over the top!

We visited a couple of shops before Unbridaled and were very dismayed at the selections, nothing but poofy, white, bling-y dresses which was not at all what I was looking for. As we got there, I was already happy that it was in our favorite area of Austin and as soon as we stepped into Unbridaled, I and my family both breathed a huge sigh of relief, looked at each other and said "This is it!". The racks were full of comfortable, unique, non-white, lace, un-poofy and un-blingy dresses just my taste. The staff was so cool and nice and understood exactly what I was going for. I told the attendant what I was looking for; an ivory lace sheath with straps, and she pulled a dress within budget that was exactly what I wanted, the Robert Bullock "Jessica". She even styled me with a beige sash and did my hair and it was perfect. I knew that was it but we went to one other shop and hated it, then cancelled the next appointment, and went right back to Unbridaled and ordered my dress. I had absolutely no problems and the girls were so nice every time I called. Their slogan is "cure for the uncommon bride" and that's exactly what it was for me!!!

The staff at Unbridaled is unparralled. They love what they do and it shows. They made me feel so comfortable, when I was not...and went out of their way to make the experience one of a kind. I didn't even know where to begin, what kind of bride, what kind of dress and they helped guide me through the process. Their selection is top knotch, something for everyone. The staff though is what seperates this shop from any other. They are truly unique.

these girls made me feel less stressed about picking "the dress." they helped me find a dress for my body type and got it ordered and back within about 14 weeks. while they dont offer in house alterations, both places they offered were fantastic.

I had the best shopping experience at Unbridaled. I knew what kind of dress I wanted for our Destination wedding it was a matter of finding The One. The staff was so helpful and patient with my decision making process. I fell in love with my dress! It was perfect in every way!

I am a curvy bride but the employees at Unbridaled brought me wedding gowns to try on that worked perfectly with my body type. I ended up buying the 2nd dress I tried on! It was delivered in plenty of time for my wedding. The dress was a bit over my budget, but it looked fantastic on my wedding day

I bought my second dress at Unbridaled. I already had one dress that I didn't love. I kept going into Unbridaled just to "look". Everyone was super helpful and didn't mind me coming in so much. I finally decided to get the dress that I had my eye on and I couldn't be more happy.

Staff very unfriendly and down right rude! I am a size 4 and they made me feel like I was a cow bc all of theor samples are size 0!

I got my beautiful dress at Unbridaled and each time I must have brought several different people each time to show them the dress and each time the staff here was so nice and accommodating! They were very nice and responsive, would definitely recommend them in the future!

These sweet ladies let me try on my dress no fewer than 6 times without ever once making fun of me. :-) And the dress I went with was one they picked out for me to try on! It was gorgeous, comfortable, and made me feel like a million bucks. Such a fun shop to visit, too!

Unbridaled has beautiful unique dresses that you don't see at a ton of places in Texas. I drove down from Dallas because I couldn't find anything in the Dallas area that fit my style. The designer of my dress only sells her dresses in Texas at Unbridaled. I'm so happy I made the trip there!

I love this place! The staff there are so nice and very helpful. They have a beautiful selection of everything a bride would want to wear on their wedding day. I went to sample sales for my dress(es) and veil. Even though I had a low price point and it was very busy those days, they gave me the best service! Many thanks to Unbridaled!

I actually bought my dress from Birnbaum and Bullock in NYC (where my family lives). I got married in Austin but live about 2 hours away. I didn't trust myself to transport the dress or keep in in my apt. Unbridled just sells Birnbaum adn Bullock's designs but they agreed to receive my dress, steam in, hold it for two weeks, and helped me with my final fitting and shoe comparisons completely free of charge. The dresses in there were beautiful and every salesperson was nice and helpful.

Unbridaled was the first and only wedding dress shop I went to, and boy am I glad!
As a woman that didn't grow up imagining her wedding day, many of the wedding to-dos that were supposed to be big affairs just weren't my style. And most of the dresses I saw online and in magazines were just too much for me!
When I first came across Unbridaled I was intrigued by their offbeat and casual charm. There were having a sample sale one day, so I grabbed my mom and two bridesmaids and showed up. They gave me champagne and casually suggested I look around for things I liked. No pressure!
When I found some dresses I liked, the attendant mentioned that she did NOT work off commission, and she just wanted to help me find a dress I loved. She helped me change into each dress, and gave her honest professional opinion.
After trying on a few "good" and "cute" dresses along the lines of what I thought I wanted, she pulled a dress that I would never have considered on the hanger. She didn't pressure me to try it, but said she thought it would flatter my figure. SHE WAS SO RIGHT! I am a size 8 on the bottom half but have a smaller top and a shorter torso. This dress gave me boobs (but not too much), flattered by (not-so-thin) waist and elongated me figure. It was also the least expensive dress I tried on! It made me feel like a real bride for the first time.
They also suggested a wonderful seamstress to shorten the dress. Overall, a wonderful experience!

The dresses for my bridesmaids were so pretty, but every single girl had to get their dress altered, and the dresses ended up costing more than what I wanted them too.
