Helen was amazing! I went to several other bridal shops looking for a dress and was rather flustered and confused by the time I got to Brilliant Bridal. I thought I wanted something simple and beachy but after talking with me Helen insisted I try something a little different. I was skeptical of the dress she pulled, but when I tried it on I instantly knew it was the one!! I wouldn't have found it without her expertise, and I can't thank Brilliant Bridal enough for making the dress buying experience so easy and fun. :)

I'm a size 18-20 bridal and I was so excited to go to Brilliant Bridal to see what options they had available. I wondered if I could get them at a good deal. Kendra was my consultant and she was really nice and attentive. Minus the fact that the shop was a bit warm. They did have some good dresses but very few in my size and not exactly my style. However, they do get new stock in every few weeks but I wound up purchasing my dress through another bridal shop. Overall Brilliant Bridal is a great place to check out to get name brand bridal dresses for a good price. Not quite the selection I expected in my size but a decent collection for other sizes.

When I (the bride-to-be)found Brilliant Bridal online I was instantly so excited see if all of their amazing reviews were true; I can assure you they are! Kendra was my consultant and she was so attentive and new quickly what my style was. Their dress selection was pretty large and they keep you inside of your budget -- which this budget savvy bride appreciated. The Fourth dress I tried on was my dress.
The dress was within my budget (I still have yet to get it altered but my consultant helped me guesstimate what it would cost and I'm still in budget). Also, my dress is not one of those cookie-cutter dresses you see at other places like David's Bridal. Since these are consigned gowns, I only paid about half of the original cost of my dress. It was originally 1200-ish but I paid closer to 650. The only part I didn't like is that you have to take your dress home after you've completed payment, but they worked with me until I could find a friend who would store it for me until I get it altered and cleaned. (they don't have space to store dresses for large periods of time)
I bought my veil there as well and have contacted them for references for bridesmaids dresses. Every time I call they are really friendly and very helpful. I will be recommending them to any of my friends getting married :) Thanks for making me feel like a princess, Brilliant Bridal!

I found a beautiful wedding dress here. This is a consignment store, so there is usually only one size. The prices were decent, but the alterations cost a chunk of money, so keep that in mind when budgeting for a dress. Overall, I was pleased with my dress and the service I received from the staff.

Ever since I first heard of Brilliant Bridal, I knew I was going to end up buying my dress from them. Every dress is sold as is, and they are all in very good condition! Their seamstress, Jen, also did a lovely job. She altered my dress from a size 10 to a size 6: for $170!

I found my dream dress at Brilliant Bridal. I had visited a handful of stores before them and the minute I walked in...I felt calm (which is HUGE during the whole process!). I was helped and not pushed or overwhelmed. Not only did they help me find the dress but they cleaned and pressed it as well. They are amazing! I love them and am so thankful for them and their amazing prices!!

Brilliant Bridal made it so easy to find a dress I loved! First of all, the office is beautiful and really accentuates the feel of shopping for that special dress. Second, all of the ladies were friendly and helpful. They didn't try to rush me out or make me feel forced. They really wanted me to love the dress. I was also able to have an area all to myself for all of my girls to sit and watch me try on. The dress I found was absolutely beautiful, fit me perfectly, and was at such a good price for an Alfred Angelo gown. Another great thing is that they aren't dresses that are found in the most current catalogs. This was my first and only stop for dress shopping! I would definitely recommend Brilliant Bridal to any bride-to-be who is searching for their perfect gown!

This vendor is absolutely wonderful! They have a wide range of dress styles, designers, and prices. The staff are friendly, incredibly patient and they don't pressure you at all! My consultant actually ended up finding my perfect dress for me and it was under my budget! They also provided excellent cheap cleaning services for my gown as it was off the rack.

I had made an appointment with Brilliant Bridal to try on dresses at a wedding show. I hadn't expected to go in and find my dress. I just assumed I would go in and try a on few as this was the first place I had gone to. The staff at Brilliant Bridal were all friendly and their one goal was that myself, my mom, my sister, and my soon to be mother in law all had a fantastic time looking at the many different and beautiful dresses that they offered!! My family picked out a handful of dresses for me to try on and the consultant that was helping me got to know me from the dresses they picked. She asked me questions about myself, my life, and about my future husband so that she could help me find the perfect dress. I had the second to last dress that I had tried on on and I had almost said yes but there was on last dress waiting for me. It was like the consultant knew that was going to be my dress and she purposely waited to put it on me at the very end. She was right. It was the dress and I cried before I left the fitting room!! I will always be grateful for the kindness and helpfulness that the staff at Brilliant Bridal extended to me. They helped me to find the dress that I knew would make my future husband's jaw drop!! :)

This store is hit or miss. If you don't see what you like the first time, go back because they are constantly getting new arrivals. My friend went a couple of times and she found her gown here. She recommended it to me. Luckily, I found my dream Alfred Angelo gown here on the first visit and paid way below retail!!! All the dresses are brand new. The customer service is fantastic! Give it a go and you may find a deal you can not resist on your dream dress!

I went in to the shop after finding out that my fiancé was being deployed in 6 months and we had to move the date up 4 months. Also I was moving across country the next week, so basically I needed a dress that day. I was emotionally all over the place and drained and stressed about finding a dress and this was the 6th store I had visited with no hope. They just weren't grasping what I wanted. The consultants here were amazing and really listened to what I wanted and what I was picturing instead of picking their favorite gowns. I already knew that me dress would have to be custom cause I didn't expect to find exactly what I wanted, It was pretty specific. But they did help me find the bottom of a dress that was exactly what I needed to get started, they then set me up with an appointment with their seamstress to custom build the bodice of the dress. I had lace work and sleeves done, she completely cut off the original from the waist up and started new. I picked the dress up 4 days later and everything was perfect, fit right, and exactly what I imagined. They really worked with me and tried to make what I wanted come true, which they did.

My mother and I went to the Phoenix Bridal Show in January. I wasn't planning on buying a dress, just wanted to look. We stopped by the Brilliant Bridal booth, and I try on a few dress. The woman were very nice and helpful, they listened to what I wanted. I ended up falling in love with a dress and buying it on the stop.
They have dresses for all price ranges.

Brilliant Bridal was my first stop in my wedding dress shopping. I had originally made an hour long appointment but my consultant, Lindsey, worked with me for a lot longer than that. I showed her some images on what I was looking for and she went and selected a few options, while me and my MOH, mom and sister also selected styles. I tried on about 10 different dresses total and loved 3 of them. Lindsey was great and offered recommendations on how to do alterations to change them a bit, to make them fit better and pushed me to try on dresses I normally wouldn't have tried. I ended up leaving with a dress (which was something I originally wanted), it was beautiful! The dress was also in my budget, and needs only small alterations. I was so excited to have found the dress at my first stop.

I had a hard time finding the perfect dress. I even bought one elsewhere and had a breakdown in trying to return it. Once it was returned, my friend directed me to Brilliant Bridal. I went in on a whim, and picked a few dresses that I liked. Meanwhile, Helen was picking out dresses that fit what I wanted, and then a few to try on that I wouldn't normally pick, but to help me KNOW when I found the dress of my dreams. She brought over the Cinderella dress and I was hooked. It had everything I wanted! She was very attentive, and even did my hair two different days so I could get an idea of how it would look with a veil. Everyone was always so friendly and happy to be working there.

On a day I was just driving by,I stopped in at Brilliant Bridal. Just to take a look. The staff was awesome and accommodating and took their time helping me even though I didn't have an appointment. I couldn't be happier with the price or my dress. It was perfect for me.

I had heard about their location on whim when trying to find a specific designer, but that designer's location became a distant thought when entering their store. With their selection being 1 of a kinds, I knew that I was bound to find something. Didn't know what I was looking for exactly, but between my mom and *Helen* we found the dress of my dreams! Helen was wonderful to work with and so grateful to her!
