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!

It was ok. I feel like they didn't have the best selection of dresses but maybe they just didn't have what I wanted. They were helpful at times.

I found my dream dress for the perfect price here. Everything is off the rack so its discounted but if you don't mind wearing last season's dresses this is the best place to look. The customer service was WAY better than Davids Bridal and the dresses were much better quality. I got so many compliments on my dress.

I bought my dress last October(ish) from Brilliant Bridal and I can't say enough about Helen and everyone at Brilliant Bridal. I had a 10am appointment and had brought my family with. I tried on three dresses and ended up buying the third. It was a little over my budget (not by much) but well worth the money. When it came time to my alterations they had provided a ref that comes on sight to their store...she was amazing as well! Once the alterations were complete I had to leave my dress and veil with Brilliant Bridal so it cold be pressed. Helen remembered myself and the dress and felt bad that she went over my budget; with that said, she decided to give me a HUGE discount on my dress press and include the veil free of charge. Best customer service ever!! Thank you Brilliant Bridal <3

I bought my dress over a year ago, and sadly can't remember my consultant's name (maybe Melody or Melanie?), but she was great, very patient, and helped me keep a healthy perspective on dress selection. I went in thinking I wanted one thing (white-white, tea length--I don't typically have a very feminine style and I was very concerned about not "looking like myself"), but after after chatting a little while and her gentle suggestions to "just try on this long one and see what you think" or "let's see what you look like in ivory" (which is SUCH a better choice for my skin tone, it turns out), I bought my perfect-for-me wedding gown that day--which ended up being ivory floor length with a train! My consultant also took the time to show me some different bustle and veil options that she thought would work well for me.
[One might be suspicious that my consultant steered me away from white tea-length because they barely had anything like that in the store, but it really came across as her trying to make me look my best, not just trying to make a sale.]
Basically, this is an *excellent* place to shop for your wedding gown if you love a bargain, are open to suggestions, and are willing to consider dresses that have seen a few miles. I think mine had been a sample dress in a previous life, because the zipper was broken, there was some wear under the armpits, and the appliqué was a little loose, but the price definitely took those minor flaws into account (and all of those problems disappeared during alterations anyway since it started out a couple sizes too big for me).
They do also carry bridesmaid dresses, but of course due to the off-the-rack nature of the store it wouldn't be great if your wedding party is not local and/or you want them all to match. It might be a good place to look for formal dresses in general, though!
