If you are a Minneapolis/St.Paul bride looking for your dress for the "big day" head right over to Bridal Accents Couture. This was the first place I went to and found my dress within 2 hours of trying on gowns. Aubrie at Bridal Accents is absolutely WONDERFUL and does a great job picking out dresses within your budget and taste. The shop is on the smaller size so they usually only schedule 2 appointments or so at the time. When the ladies and I went to look at dresses we pretty much had the entire place to ourselves! When I said "yes to the dress" Aubrie offered my entire group champagne for a toast AND provided a bottle to enjoy later. So fun! The overall customer service at Bridal Accents Couture is AMAZING. Being in other friends' weddings over the years I have dealt with other shops in MN that are not nearly as friendly or accommodating. For example, one of my bridesmaids ordered a dress in the wrong size and did not discover this until 1 month before the wedding. It was too late to order her a new size, but luckily the store had the correct sample size in their shop and swapped out the dresses no questions asked.
If you are looking for a fantastic dressing shopping experience go schedule an appointment with Aubrie at Bridal Accents Couture TODAY! :)

I had an amazing experience with the Bridal Accents staff! I felt as if I was their main focus from the first moment that I walked in to each subsequent service I have used them for (bridesmaids, tuxes, accessories). Aubrie and the whole staff are truly amazing and made the process of finding a dress fun and stress-free! I also am an event coordinator in the area of their store and wouldn't recommend anywhere else for my brides. This is the PERFECT store!

I visited Bridal Accents in Burnsville just this last Saturday and was in need of some major TLC after the terrible experience I went through at another big box bridal store an hour earlier. Just walking into Bridal Accents, I knew this was going to be a completely different experience and was very excited!
Carol greeted me and we began selecting gowns. I couldn't have asked for a better bridal consultant!! She was very attentive to my needs and made me feel like a princess!
I am so glad I ended up purchasing a gown and cannot wait to work with Carol and all of the Bridal Accents gals throughout this entire process!
Thanks again for such a great experience!

I cannot begin to express how wonderful the staff and selection at Bridal Accents is. After looking at two different shops in the Twin Cities, I was convinced I wasn't going to find my wedding dress that day. As soon as I walked into Bridal Accents I knew I had found the perfect place. I was treated how a bride deserves to be treated while shopping for my dream dress. Aubrie took the time to go through each and every dress to decide whether or not I wanted to try it on. I found several options that I liked but there was only one that was 'my dress'. I was so happy with the quality, service and attention to detail with how I was treated that we purchased our bridesmaid dresses there too. I cannot thank Bridal Accents enough for making me feel so beautiful and for treating me like I was the only bride in the room. I cannot recommend them enough and have since sent many brides their way.

Michelle was my consultant and I also believe she owns the store but you would never know with how down to earth and how hard she worked to help me find my perfect dress. She was patient, never pushy and never made me feel pressured. Even when the appointment ran a bit longer, I was never made to feel like I was being rushed.
The store itself is beautiful and bright with a huge selection of dresses from all designers. It's quite the fancy place and the price point started a bit higher than I expected but it didn't really surprise me with the quality and the designers they have. Overall, a great experience and capped off with a bottle of bubbly I got for purchasing my dress to celebrate! Highly recommended!

I went to two different spots to try on wedding dresses- Bridal Accents being my second stop. I was so impressed with the boutique wedding dress shop from the moment I walked in the door. Greeted with a smile & some slippers to slip into - the customer service & overall wedding dress experience was truly FUN & relaxing. Soft white carpet, walls lined with beautiful dresses, and couches for your friends and family provide seating while you try on & model dresses. Aubrie helped me to find my perfect wedding dress - she asked me a few questions right off the bat & then went to work pulling a # of different dresses for me to try that would fit my style. After narrowing it down to 3 dresses, I decided I need to go home and think about it -- I came back later that day & tried them on again. This time I knew right away which dress was "The one" - a Martina Liana strapless fit-and-flare gown that I fell in love with. After a few minutes of general smiling, head-nodding & a few tears (of joy!), Aubrie brought out 3 glasses of champagne for my Mom, Dad and me to toast with - as my Dad said, "The Dress said Yes!" (Despite the slightly off phrasing, it was the sweetest moment, and the overall ambiance & relaxed feel of Bridal Accents made it possible.) The only downfall to the experience was that it was over & I was done searching! I would HIGHLY recommend Bridal Accents Couture -- and Aubrie, of course. It was one of my absolute favorite parts of wedding planning!

I visited Bridal Accents Couture for my wedding dress and I had a wonderful experience. I was quite indecisive in my dress shopping, and I returned to look at dresses twice after my initial appointment. The sales team is exceptional, notably Aubrie and Michelle, and they did not push me to chose a dress as I found at other stores. The quality of the dresses was also great-I noticed the lace on the dresses I tried on was of a better quality and the structuring inside the dresses was much better. I really enjoyed my Bridal Accents Couture experience and can't wait for my dress to come in! Great store, great people, and great choice for wedding dress shopping!

Worked with Aubree and am 100% happy with my experience at Bridal Accents. Aubree was super helpful, gave advice and opinions based on experience with the dresses (without added pressure) and I never felt like I was just another sale like I did at some of the other places I tried on dresses. We are also ordering bridesmaid dresses and renting tuxes through Bridal Accents because she was so wonderful. I would definitely give them my business again if I had to do it all over. My dress just came in this week and I'm completely happy!

Picking out my dress was the experience I've always dreamed of. Working with Michelle made this experience exceptional. My mom and I were able to take our time and enjoy every moment of finding my perfect dress. When we did, we celebrated with a bottle of champagne from bridal accents. This store also has a nice range of prices to meet everyone's needs.

I was looking to take peoples breath away and I did more than that. Had the best experience here and would recommended them to anyone!

Bridal Accents Couture is the quintessential bridal shop experience! Expect to wear fluffy white slippers while looking at gorgeous gowns. My price range was at the lower end of the store's price spectrum, but I didn't feel like that was an issue, like some other stores. I felt very welcome there and ended up finding my gown at this store (Justin Alexander!). The customer service has been incredible without being pushy. The owner, Michelle, has fantastic taste in selecting dresses for her store - everything is elegant.
Thanks for a great experience!

I can't thank Aubrie enough for the very wonderful and relaxing experience I had at your Bridal Boutique. I found the absolute perfect gown for my wedding. Aubrie made me feel very comfortable throughout the process. She was also very knowledgeable about designers and what would work best given my price range and timeline. I would recommend you to anyone I know who is getting married! Thank you so much!

I was so blessed to shop for my bridal gown in this store! The staff was so nice, asked all the right questions, and found my style immediately. My family and I were able to relax and have a fun day together while making this big decision! I would suggest this store to anyone looking for a wedding gown.

Working with Michelle at Bridal Accents Couture was truly a pleasure! Michelle was so nice and extremely patient while I tried on umpteen dresses to figure out how I wanted to look on my wedding day. I was never pressured into buying and I was always encouraged to make sure I found the RIGHT dress since it was such an important day. I actually left and came back a week later and tried on even more dresses before coming to a conclusion. I bought the dress because it was PERFECT for me, not because I was pressured into making a purchase. I would absolutely recommend Bridal Accents Couture to future brides! They are incredible! They even gave me champagne in the bridal goodie bag they gave me after I bought my dress! Nice touch!

I could not have had a better experience at Bridal Accents Couture. I would highly recommend Aubrie who was professional, engaged, and so sweet. She was just as excited about me finding a dress as my friends and family.
This salon carries unique dresses not found other places in Minnesota. The carpet and dressing rooms are amazing. Also, since they only schedule a few (about 2) appointments at a time, the salon doesn't feel overwhelming or like a "wedding factory" as some others do.
I highly highly recommend going to Bridal Accents Couture!

Bridal Accent Couture was the 2nd shop I went to and they provided my group with the 'bridal experience.' The shop is very clean and spacious which allows your consultant to take their time with you. Aubrie was my consultant and she was wonderful! She listened to me and what I was looking for in a dress. She also helped my fiance and I pick out suit rentals. I have already recommended Bridal Accent Couture to my friends who are getting married in 2014.

To describe the experience I had Bridal Accents Couture I would need a full day to explain. It was the second place I visited with my wedding party and I wish it had been the first.
Their customer service is above and beyond. The shop is so beautifully put together with plenty of seating for your appointment and guests along with giant mirrors.
I was helped by Aubrie, who is just the best.
She is so patient, personable, has great recommendations and above all professional. With every dress she is attentive to every detail so when you come out in front of your family to show off your future dress, you look amazing.
At such a wonderful time in your life, which you hope to do only once, she made it not only memorable to me, but my family as well.
And that, it all I could ask for.
It would be who of you to stop in.
I recommend it full heartedly.

Loved every aspect of Bridal Accents Couture. This was the first bridal salon I went to in the search for "the dress". I was a little overwhelmed and wasn't exactly sure what I was looking for. Aubrie was amazing, encouraged me to try multiple styles on. She was not pushy, in fact she encouraged me to go home and think on the dress before making my purchase. Compared to other bridal salons I went to, I would recommend Bridal Accents Couture hands down!!!! Can't speak highly enough about my experience there!

I loved Bridal Accents and all their staff. I initially went to Bridal Accents on a whim, without an appointment and they got my sister, mom and I right in. After going to other bridal salons it was so refreshing to be able to look at the dresses with my family without the annoying sales lady breathing down their neck. We were able to look at all the dresses, and pull anything we liked. They even let us put them on ourselves, if we wanted, which was nice. I found the dress and blew my budget completely out of the water, which was entirely my fault because I wasn’t up front with them about it. There’s something to be said about having a moment in a dress with your mom and sister.
I had a dilemma because I promised my in law that I would go dress shopping with her, so the staff was willing to let us come back the next day and extend the day of discount so I could “go dress shopping” with my in-law even though I clearly had the dress picked out.
Would absolutely go back but if your on a budget keep that in mind, and inform staff. Lots of fun, unique dresses to browse through.

I loved my dress buying experience with Bridal Accents. They were so helpful and made you feel like the most important person in the store! The dress came in much quicker than expected and was perfect. I would definitely recommend them in your dress shopping experience!
