My mom and I walked into Sposabella on a whim, without an appointment. We were greeted by Cindy right away, who encouraged us to come on in, asked what kind of dress I was looking for, and immediately pulled 8 gorgeous gowns for me to try on. I fell in love with one of them immediately, and once she pinned it all back for me and let me accessorize with the veils and headbands they have on hand, I knew it was the dress for me.
Then I went in for three fittings with Charlene, who was just as warm, professional, and experienced in her craft. She helped me tailor the bust, back, and train of my dress until it fit like a glove. Never afraid to dive right into fabric, she pinned, scissored, and bustled our way through each fitting--such a confident pro!
You can rely on Sposabella to listen, deliver, and make you feel totally at ease, and in expert hands.
Thank you so much, Cindy and Charlene!!

Other than being a little short at my first visit (I hear a lot of people say that the people at dress shops aren't always that friendly) it was great. I found the dress that was exactly what I wanted. They had a good selection of different styles and a lot in lower price ranges. The only draw back is that since they are a smaller shop they don't have a variety of sizes and I had to get a lot of alterations. Even with that it was less than $1,000. Alterations were quick and they did a great job.

I had a hard time finding a place on the Cape who would do alterations on my wedding gown (which I bought at David's Bridal). It was difficult to schedule my fittings with Sposabella, especially since I live out of state, but everything worked out. One thing is that I felt like they made my dress VERY tight, though they said that all wedding dresses were supposed to feel like this. Looking back, I wish I had asked them to re-alter it. It really did get uncomfortable after wearing it for several hours. Charlene, who is the main seamstress, is lovely and great to work with. Other employees at the shop however are pretty pushy and in particular the girl who was there when I pick up my dress was rude (but it is what it is). All in all, my dress was altered and it looked great.

Charlene is awesome! She is always cheerful and upbeat and has a wonderful eye for dress perfection. She was able to literally read my mind and offered suggestions on ways to improve my already beautiful dress.
The shop is a breath of fresh air, where everyone feels welcomed as soon as you walk through the door. I found a stunning Irish lace dress which was ordered for me and arrived early. Since I live abroad Charlene arranged her schedule to meet with me on the rare occasion that I was home and each time it was like walking into the house of an old friend.
My dress fit perfectly and looked beautiful. I was able to buy a belt that was made by the designer and matched the dress perfectly. I also purchased a hair clip that I loved, it was simple and elegant.
What sealed my love for this shop was Charlene's help to my fiancé and his groomsmen who are all Irish and live in Dubai and / or Limerick. Getting the sizes for the five lads was an impossible task. They sent their measurements in centimeters, inches, pounds, kilograms and the best of all STONES!!!! Charlene converted these measurements for us. Then when it turned out that all of the lads had MEASURED THEMSELVES WRONG two days before the wedding...
Charlene had new jackets shipped overnight for the men. They looked very handsome!
I would highly recommend Sposabella to any bride looking for a place where she will be treated with patience and respect and walk out feeling beautiful.

Although I got married in CO, I purchased my dress here on vacation when my family could be there to help me pick it out. They spent at least 2 hours helping me find the dress, even though I ended up buying the first one I tried on. When the dress came in, they held it at the store for several months until I went back for another vacation to have it altered. The alterations were amazing- they did such a beautiful job and finished everything quickly since I had to take my dress back for the wedding. I had so many compliments on the dress at my wedding!

I purchased my dress in Scottsdale, Arizona where I live, but after stuffing my dress into a suitcase to carry onto the plane with me, I needed someone I could trust to press and deliver my dress before the wedding day. I took my dress and 5 bridesmaids dresses to Sposabella the week before the wedding, and they looked absolutely amazing when they were delivered a few days later. They took the utmost care in pressing and handling my dress, I couldn't have been happier!

A friend of mine used to work at this bridal shop which is why we drove so far to it. I am not sorry for the long drive! I got an amazing wedding dress for a great price! My cousin also went there and got her's too! The staff is very friendly, willing to help you or let you browse alone. I would highly recommend this shop to anyone looking for a great dress.

When I first went to Sposabella, I had already gone to a couple of places and didn't really find anything I liked. I went to Sposabella and Amanda helped me. I gave her photos of dresses I found online that I liked and she found dresses that were almost exact. I found the PERFECT dress there!
Everyone at the wedding complemented me on how beautiful my dress was and how it looked like it was made for me!! I wish I could wear it again and again! Maybe I'll bring it back to get altered into a cute summer dress :)

I was in search of a particular Wtoo by Watters dress and Sposabella was the closest bridal shop to have a sample for me to try on. I went there, loved the dress I had in mind and so purchased it there. The price was right and the tailoring was expertly done. They kept my veil with my dress and steamed it for me, so both were ready for pick-up the day before the wedding. Although I didn't purchase my veil with them, they have a great selection. Also of note, is that they did not charge extra for steaming my veil. Fun, friendly women in this shop and great dress selection.

I bought my dress from Sposabella, it was the first one I tried on and I fell in love with it. The customer service was awesome, the girls are so nice. My only problem was that the clasp on my dress broke during my reception when I went to pick up my son. We all tried to fix it, even the owner of the reception site but it was not happening. Luckily we had rented a house 3 miles away and my sister was able to go get me a new dress, but I was so upset that I was not able to finish my night in my wedding dress that I waited forever to wear. :(

The staff at Sposabella really added value to my dress shopping experience! They helped me find my fairy tale dress and were very supportive and helpful each time I came back to try it on - matching veil, shoes, jewelry, and even flowers. I highly recommended them!

I purchased my gown in Plymouth but that boutique went under 3 months before my wedding. Sposabella took my dress in (and me!) and did all my alterations. They were so accommodating and so wonderful. They changed things on the dress to make it my ultimate dream gown. They were amazing and I really feel everything happened for a reason with the other boutique!

I bought my dress at a small boutique in New Orleans and had it shipped up to MA for my wedding. Sposabella was happy to do the alterations for me, even though I didn’t buy the dress from them. Charlene, I think she’s the owner, managed the fittings, and transformed my dress from a beast that was 4 sizes too big, to a masterpiece that was perfect for me! I couldn’t have been happier with her advice and how she artfully crafted a gorgeous bustle from a ton of material and lace. Her seamstress that did the actual sewing did a spectacular job. Sposabella also sold my mother a stunning mother of the bride dress that was beautiful but also appropriate. They were accommodating of both me and my mother’s crazy schedules and I couldn’t have been happier with their service.

Charlene is amazing! She knows exactly what looks best on any body shape, size...etc. I found both my wedding dress and my bridesmaids' dresses. The consultants are all very helpful, attentive and patient. I'm so happy I went to them first!
