I just bought my dress on 1/11/14 from here and I had the most wonderful experience! Mary was my consultant and she really knew what she was doing and worked really hard to give me the best. I didn't have a huge budget and this is a higher-end store but even then, she went out of her way to make sure she pulled dresses within my budget and did what she could make sure it was reasonably priced! She listened to what I liked, gave her honest opinion about each dress and when I found things I loved about other dresses (that were out of my price range), she'd find one that I could afford that had exactly what I was wanting! I ended up with the first dress she pulled out for me and canceling all my other appointments for the rest of the day! Not to mention, it wasn't what I thought I'd want but it looked so fantastic and I fell in love with it. I recommend this place 110% and I encourage you to let these ladies do what they do best...everyone there knew the product really well and created such a warm atmosphere.

Today (1/11/2014) I purchased my wedding dress in your boutique! My consultant's name was JoAnn and she was honestly such an integral part of my experience wedding dress shopping. The minute I walked into European Bridal I instantly felt like a princess. JoAnn hand selected all my dresses based off my taste, was personally helping me in and out of every single dress, and was more than willing to give me her professional opinion with each dress I tried on! I can tell you that every other place I looked made me feel like I was just another bride. JoAnn went the extra mile to personalize my experience and truly cared about what I wanted.
Your boutique is absolutely beautiful, personal, and has made my experience wedding dress shopping one I will never forget!
Thank you so much for your incredible customer service!
A very happy bride

I had such a great experience with Gena at European Bridal. From the moment I walked in with my mom, sister and niece, Gena was extremely welcoming and attentive. She walked me around the store to show me the various styles and encouraged me to try on different styles. The first dress I tried on was spectacular. As I tried on other dresses, I kept going back to that very first dress. At one point I thought I was in between two styles and she had me close my eyes to imagine that big day as I'm walking down the aisle. At that point I knew the first dress was for me, not to mention the tears it brought to multiple eyes. Gena was not pushy and was more than accommodating when I decided to leave the store for a few hours while I contemplated the decision (based on price) and waited for a future bridesmaid's input. Gena was also great with my 5 year old niece and gave her two tiaras which thrilled her! I'm so happy that Gena and everyone at European Bridal helped me to say "yes to the dress!".

I walked into European Bridal just to get ideas for my dress late on a Saturday afternoon. I was by myself and I wasn't intending on buying or finding my dress that day and I did! The personalized attention, selection of dresses and boutique feel were all wonderful! I found my perfect dress and to I couldn't be happier. The team at European Bridal have been a joy work with and my experience there was fantastic! I would recommend checking out European Bridal to any bride-to-be.

We had such a great experience with European Bridal! The service was wonderful and they helped me find the perfect dress on my first day looking! The staff treated my family and me wonderfully. I would absolutely recommend European Bridal to anyone looking in the area.

I was so happy with the selection and service at European Bridal. They take extra time to discuss your tastes and pick out choices specifically for you. After visiting the more "big box" bridal stores, European Bridal was a breath of fresh air! Loved my dress and hair piece :)

A little bit on the pricey side but overall I loved my dress and the service was excellent.

I was at European Bridal about a month ago and it was my third dress shop, and was by far the worst experience I have had so far. My consultant was friendly but I thought it was odd that I couldn't make any dress selections or even point out a few on the rack that I like. She insisted she would make selections based on what I liked. Second, you are not allowed to take pictures here - so far it is the only placed that I have not been able to. There was a dress there that was going to be in the running but since I wasn't able to show it to friends or family it has quickly lost its appeal. Finally, my appointment was over run my a manager. My consultant was doing just fine until this woman stepped in and took over. She was very pushy and told me there was no way I could like two dresses the same amount. She even asked my mom if I traditionally had a hard time making decisions. With plenty of places to look in Cincy, this place is not worth your time in my opinion.

The moment you enter European Bridal your senses are in awe of the beautiful, romantic and elegantly decorated showroom. Exquisite gowns of lace, satin, organza and much more line the entire entry room. Your eyes are filled with anticipation and excitement.
The bridal consultants are quick to greet and welcome you to the store. Sincere congratulations on your engagement and inquires of dress appointments set the stage for a perfect fitting.
I had the pleasure of working with Shannon & Shirley. These duo of bridal experts listened attentively as I described my "dream gown". They as well as my wedding party were quick to pull gowns for me to try own. Contrary to belief, family members and friends are encouraged to choose their own ideas for your "ideal" gown!
Once in the dressing room, you feel as if you are the only person in the store. This is difficult to accomplish on a busy Saturday afternoon in August. My bridal consultants accomplished this effortlessly. The relaxed and supportive atmosphere that is created here is hard pressed to recreate.
Upon choosing a gown, every question I had was met or exceeded. No detail left unanswered. I had complete confidence leaving the store that I had made the right decision in saying, "yes to the dress" at European Bridal.

This past weekend I went to European Bridal with the hopes of finding my dream wedding dress. My experience was amazing! The staff there was very professional, helpful, and genuinely interested in helping me find the perfect wedding dress at an affordable price. Mary was the consultant I worked with and she was incredibly attentive, patient and interested in having me walk her through what I did and did not like about certain dresses to pinpoint specific details I was seeking in my dress. The end result was spot on! I found a beautiful gown within my price range and felt absolutely spectacular! I highly recommend this bridal boutique to anyone looking to have a stress free, professional and fun dress shopping experience! You won't be disappointed! Thanks again European Bridal for helping me find my dream dress for my big day!

European Bridal was the first shop I went to when searching for a dress. I went with my mom and sister, and I had a good idea of what I was looking for. Joanne was my consultant and was absolutely fantastic! She listened to what I was looking for, and pulled "the dress" on the first round. It was absolutely perfect and she even suggested great accessories to add my signature sparkle to the dress. I went to one other store just to make sure I found the dress, but came back the same day and bought it. All of the consultants were very nice and professional, and it was a fantastic experience. I loved the small boutique feel as compared to other shops in the area that had so many dresses. They may have fewer dresses, but they buy great dresses and had plenty of options for every taste.

The salesperson was pushy and unhelpful. I paid $100 for shipping only to receive my dress in a broken box, folded- no tissue paper, no fancy hanger. I took pictures of the box and sent them to the designer, who of course was appalled. European Bridal could or should I say would not, recommend a place for alterations in NYC which is where I live. Luckily the designers staff were able to accommodate me and provide well-priced alterations at the company headquarters.

After searching at David's Bridal and Wendy's Bridal, I was beginning to feel hopeless. My wedding planner and I were walking on W Benson St. and said we should stop in European Bridal (even though we didn't have an appointment). to see if her friend Joanna was working. Sure enough, Joanna was working and could squeeze me into an appointment. After telling Joanna what style I was searching for but that those styles didn't look right on me, she took one look at me, and grabbed two dresses. The first dress of the two I tried on, I fell immediately in love with it and couldn't take it off for a near 45 minutes. Joanna nailed it. Also, it turned out that the dress was being discontinued and was the last dress in the shop AND also my size! Ended up getting the dress for about 65% off! Can't beat that!

My tiny entourage and I went to European Bridal to try to find my dream dress. Erin greeted me at the counter, I told her my budget, she asked some basic questions about my future husband and me, and she immediately got to work helping me find beautiful dresses to try on. Erin stayed by my side the entire day, and ultimately helped me find the dress I've always wanted. What's more, I could actually afford the dress I fell in love with!
European Bridal is beautifully laid out, the staff (especially Erin) was amazing, and the selection is the best around. I have nothing but great things to say about my experience at European Bridal, and I would recommend them to everyone.
A big thank you to Erin and the rest of ladies for helping me find the perfect dress for my wedding!

After looking for dresses at many different bridal shops and boutiques, I found my dress at European Bridal. It was a stunning lace dress which I had not seen at any of the other shops. The selection of dresses there was fantastic and Cecila (an employee) was able to direct me to some which fit the style I wanted (as well as the price). The customer service at European Bridal was incredible. All of the employees made me feel like a beautiful bride. By far, the best dress shopping experience.

I took a trip down to European Bridal from Columbus and am so happy I did. I came in with just a few photos from magazines of the styles I liked and my consultant, Shirley, pulled so many beautiful options all within my price range! After narrowing it down to 2 dresses, with half the group liking one and the other group liking the other, Shirley really helped me consider what I truly wanted in my dress. She even dressed me up with jewelry and a veil to give me the overall look. We had a fantastic day at European Bridal and even ended up canceling our second appointment of the day because we knew we had found the one!!

European Bridal is the absolute dream wedding dress store! I had gone to so many wedding dress stores and every dress looked the same. I wanted a dress that was special, a dress that made me feel like a bride. I walked into European bridal and spoke with a consultant about what I was looking for. She told me to start looking at dresses and let her know which ones I wanted her to pull and she was going to pull a few that she thought I might like. So I had her pull about 3 dresses and then she pulled one, but before it was off the rack I said no. She asked if I would just trust her and try it on because she thinks I would look beautiful in it. So I tried the three I picked and they were pretty but not the right one. So at the end, I finally put the dress on she picked and WOW... It was amazing!!! I knew right away this was the dress! She helped style it with accessories like the veil and a crystal sash that was just wonderful!! I would highly recommend dress shopping at European Bridal!! The consultants are professionals that know exactly what dress will look incredible on you!!!

I went dress shopping for the first time ever at Bridal and Formal (across the street from European Bridal), and was extremely disappointed. They don't take appointments, so I had to wait over an hour to be seen. I could go on, but this review is not about them. Needless to say when I left I was discouraged, but I decided to stop in at European bridal because I had been shopping there before with a friend and loved their stuff. They were super friendly and got me right in. I really wanted something unique yet classic, and after trying on about 5 dresses the girl came back with my dress. It was a new Simone Carvalli that no one had wanted to try yet, and she said she was dying to see on someone, so I put it on for the heck of it. WOW, I stepped out of the dressing room and knew immediately it was my dress. Although I didn't buy it that day (my wedding was still over a year and a half away), I eventually went back and got it after going to other stores "just to make sure" as they say, and nothing even compared. They have also been helpful with getting alterations as well as finding somewhere to have my dress cleaned and preserved. Not to mention they carry Simone Carvalli, which few stores in Ohio do, so if you like dresses that have that WOW factor, I would highly recommend them. Also, on the day I actually bought the dress, they were having a huge accessory sale, so I got a 300 dollar Swarovski Crystal tiara for 50 bucks. So make sure to check their clearance section :)
