Not certain if my dress was delivered from Chicago store or Houston store but either way it was one of the best purchases in my wedding I made! Nervous to order online w/o having seen the dress first, but I couldn't find another dress I loved more each time I went out to shop. I ordered a size 10 and when the dress arrived - I slipped it on and it fit - absolutely NO alterations required. I am 5'6" and weight varies 135-140. My dress was two pieces (the Flamenco gown) and each piece was made from gorgeous fabric, it was very well-made, arrived in a gorgeous linen dress bag and was reasonably priced. BHLDN's return policy (although I didnt' need to use it!) was easy and reasonable. I received so many compliments on the dress the day of the wedding. I highly recommend BHLDN.

So, I've never been the type to dream up my wedding dress, and wedding dress shopping was not fun for me until I stepped into BHLDN! Those heavy, tight, fluffy wedding dresses are not my style, and it's difficult to find dresses similar to what BHLDN carries at other stores. They were incredibly helpful and attentive. The wedding area has 3 separate dressing areas, so the trying on process was very private and nice! My dress was at my house within 10 days and I loved it! I definitely recommend BHLDN!

I actually ordered my dress from BHLDN online. I also got my hairpiece there was well. My dress was beautiful and very reasonable...perfect for a second wedding. I only had 3 months to plan so it worked out perfectly. My dress was unique and vintage.

The dress was as perfect as I could imagine, light and airy, vintagey, and perfect for the beach!

I went to BHLDN with my mom and maid of honor (appt needed) and it was loads of fun. Cute shop to look around in while waiting and then we were greeted with champaigne in our dressing room. I tried on about 6 dresses and found the one! I absolutely loved it and reasonable price too. I made minor modifications to it to make it my own and loved the outcome.

I wasn't one of those little girls who grows up planning her wedding. When I got engaged, I couldn't imagine myself in a poofy white dress.
Then I found BHDLN. Thank god.
Thanks to a friend's seasonal Anthro discount, I was able to afford the Burnished Organza gown.
It didn't fit, because BHDLN, like much of the rest of the wedding industry, makes its wedding gowns smaller than street sizes. For the record, this is incredibly stupid and makes women who most likely already feeling additional pressure with all kinds of wedding preparations feel larger than they are. Stop it. Also, offer sizes larger than 14 because all kinds of women would love to wear those gorgeous gowns.
I bought a back up gown but it paled in comparison to the sparkly, sequined, lacy affair that I had from BHLDN, so I took my burnished organza gown to a seamstress. Luckily, she was able to alter it to make it fit perfectly.
My BHLDN gown looked gorgeous on my wedding day, and I couldn't have imagined anything other dress feeling as right. I'm so glad I bought my BHLDN gown--I just wish they'd be better about sizes.

I went to many boutiques and stores before I went to BHLDN when I was home in Houston. I always thought I would wear a J.Crew dress because I thought their designs were simple, beautiful, and affordable. However, when I went to try on dresses at J.Crew the experience was nothing like that at BHLDN. J.Crew dresses were cheaply made and the fabric did not look good when I tried them on and nothing fit right for my body type. When I finally went to BHLDN, Lindsay at the Houston location was the best! We tried on many dresses and in the end I did not feel pressured to buy anything, but did anyways. I loved their dresses, they are beautiful, fresh designs, and the store design is amazing. They also have other party dresses where my mom found her mother of the bride dress. BHLDN dresses just fit my classic, romantic, and simple wedding aesthetic. Everyone should go try on wedding dresses here!

I love everything vintage and BHLDN delivers! My headband at my wedding was simply gorgeous.

While I didn't end up going with a BHLDN dress (I ended up sewing my own, which was a longtime aspiration) I absolutely loved their styles and offerings - from shoes to headpieces and everything in between, they offer beatiful, well-made pieces. And their decorative items are so fun - I got some great ideas in there! A bit expensive for some things, but there are reasonable items too. Definitely a fun place to walk around in!

Walking into BHLDN is like walking into a dreamland. Everything is a touch vintage and unique, and totally romantic in that sweep you off your feet sort of way. Everyone I dealt with was incredibly sweet and helpful. They have a seamstress that they work with regularly, and she really is an expert on their gowns. They also have a professional cleaner they can recommend for you. That is, if you ever manage to take off your dress...

When BHLDN opened I was so excited as I knew I had to see what the store had to offer. The dresses they have in store are gorgeous albeit a tad pricey.
I had found a veil online and went to buy it in store. They wrapped the veil in tissue paper and placed it in a lovely box! They definitely get points for the packaging factor!
Overall the store is fun to be inside but the pricetags aren't as fun to look at.

I am not a traditional bride so finding the perfect dress seemed like a daunting task. I was so excited when I found BHLDN and their eclectic variety of wedding dresses. I ordered my dress online and they sent me several e-mails to let me know the status of my order and I received my dress within a month . The packaging was beautiful and sturdy and the dress arrived fully in tact and GORGEOUS! It was the perfect dress for me and for our location and theme. Some of the dresses seemed a bit pricey for my budget but for the quality and beauty of the dresses I say it's worth it. I couldn't be more please with my dress and I couldn't have felt more beautiful wearing it.

I talked to one of their online specialist and they put the most perfect look together for me! I sent them a picture of my dress and what I was going for and they did the rest. Sent me a board of photos of all the perfect accesories for my look. I got so many compliments!

My dress held up the whole night- comfortably! I am still (a month later) getting compliments on how beautiful I looked in my dress. Since I live in Florida, I had to order my dress (the beribboned design) off of the BHLDN website, and it fit like it was made for just me! It was wonderful, and I love it to death!

This was my second wedding, so I was looking for a short, bridesmaid's dress that would be appropriate, beautiful, but not so formal as a bridal gown. I found a stunning, cream colored dress online at BHLDN. It had a unique Battenburg lace pattern that I especially liked.
Ordering was easy and delivery was prompt, but the dress was a disappointment. Although the fit was good, the lace pattern wasn't centered on the dress (although it was on the dress pictured on the website). The dress I received looked like it was put together in a rush and was not the quality I expected for $400. I sent it back and received a prompt refund.

I wore the crepe de chine gown, but I loved that I could order more than one to see which I liked best!

BHLDN had me at hello. I ordered my dress from their website and could not have been more pleased. Each seam was taken with such care and, at least for my dress, the cost matched the value and quality. New, fresh designs for classic or modern, young or old. All brides can be beautiful in BHLDN!

I was looking for a vintage style dress and I would have never thought i would buy a dress online but it was perfect and the dress fit the style of my wedding perfectly!!Also very affordable! The reviews on the website helped a lot!

I ordered two dresses from BHLDN.com. First of all, their online stylists were very helpful and both dresses fit perfectly. I did not have any issues returning the one that I did not love ... and I absolutely love the one that I ended up with - the Greenbow Lace Gown. So comfortable, so beautiful, I really felt like a goddess. Thank you, BHLDN!

I absolutely love my Pinwheel Tea Length Dress. I knew it was going to be the one as soon as I saw it. I didn't get it at the Houston location - I ordered online and had to return the first one as sizing was a little off - too big which is not a bad problem to have. Once I got the right size it fit perfectly, no alterations needed and I felt like a beautiful bride which is what every girl wants for her wedding day. The only downside is that it was a little higher than my initial budget so we had to adjust for some of the other areas of the wedding to compensate.
