I found my dress while visiting my family in Austin, TX. I went to five different boutiques that day and found my dress at the last one...Melange. My perfect dress had been worn for the designers runway show and only showed a little wear. I got it for less than half price, and they cleaned and took it in a bit for a reasonable fee. It as shipped to me in Portland and arrived in immaculate condition. I didn't think I would be one of those crying brides, but this dress and the whole experience was perfect, so of course I cried:) They had a wide variety of dresses, which I did not find to be the case at several other shops I visited. Many of them were not my taste but if you are not sure what style you are looking for, this would be a great starting point.

My dress was beautiful. There was a slight mixup on my dress length, but they covered all the additional costs for changes. They are super knowledgeable and very helpful.

Despite it being a small wedding dress shop, the ladies are so extremely helpful. They have a range of pricing as well depending on what you are looking for to meet your needs...very affordable!

I bought my wedding dress made by essence of Australia here. They were great help, they recommended me to a fast tailor, and they offered to re-steam my dress for free after it was fitted. I also had my 4 bridesmaids buy their dresses from here, they offered a discount to all of them, and any accessories, because I bought my wedding dress there. My maid of honor was out of state and they handled ordering her dress very smoothly. I recommend Nicole and all the other fantastic ladies at Melange bridal to any bride or bridesmaid!

Okay, so I'm not one of those people that dreamed about my wedding dress...I've always been into fashion and pride myself on believing I have good fashion taste but this was a whole new ball game! And not to mention VERY overwhelming!!! And most of you know, after you try on a million things, everything starts to look the same! The staff at Mélange really helped me in figuring out my sense of style and gave me their opinion on what they thought might look great and not in a pushy or annoying way!!! And let me tell you, they were spot on!!! I live in Dallas, and went to Austin looking for something different and was very much surprised by the selection they had a Mélange...I mean I got a dress from PARIS people...in AUSTIN!!! Amazing! I would definitely recommend this store to anyone!!! Love the staff and appreciated their expertise and professionalism!! Go there if you want great service, a great selection, and if you want the perfect wedding day gown!

I had a great experience buying my dress, but I tried to use them for my bridesmaids dresses to get the discount. I was going with a very spring-time looking multicolor dress. I specifically asked if we needed to order farther in advance because of the seasonality of the dress and was assured that we could order through the end of the year. I was still nervous and asked my girls to have the dresses ordered two months earlier than that just to be safe. They took everyone's order ( and money) without checking on the dress and when the last girl ordered the dress they realized it was discontinued! I had already built the colors of my cake and flowers around that dress! We had to pick another dress last minute ( at a different shop) that was just not the same. VERY disappointed since I made a big deal about checking availability on the dress!

I enjoyed my experience with Melange Bridal. It is a smaller, more intimate store than some of the larger bridal salons in Austin. They were very friendly and helpful for the most part. I thought they had a great selection of dresses at reasonable prices. I had a few issues in ordering the correct size, but the manager Nicole was able to help me order the right size in the end, so it all worked out. I highly recommend Melange to anyone looking for a beautiful dress! I found the perfect dress there!

The women who work there are young and friendly and they make the experience fun.

The selection of dresses was impeccable. The salon was not too large so the surface was intimate and I did not feel rushed like in other salons. The girls that worked there were very helpful about choosing and ordering a dress.

When I initially went into Melange it was my first day shopping for bridal gowns. Gillian helped me out and she actually picked the gown I ended up wearing. Everyone I worked with there was professional and nice and made me feel comfortable and beautiful!

At the very last minute we discovered that my veil did not match the exact color of my dress. One of the gals at the shop took my veil to have it tea-dyed (a couple of times until it was PERFECT!) at the veil specialty store. These girls REALLY took care of my when I was so stressed out about my dress!
