Look no further! After having a not so pleasant experience at a bridal salon in NY I was hesitant when booking another appointment elsewhere. I read multiple reviews about The Curvy Bride and figured it would be worth the ride. I am a size 12/14 which may not be considered plus size to some people but at other bridal shops I experienced the consultants trying to squeeze me into dresses that clearly weren't my size. Then as I stood there, uncomfortable, the bridal consultant would say "oh just imagine it in your size." Needless to say, I was disgusted. Upon my arrival to The Curvy Bride I was greeted by Maria, who was a pleasure to work with. My mother, sister, and I were pleasantly surprised at the amount of beautiful dresses that the salon carried. My appointment did not feel rushed and I felt very comfortable throughout the dress fitting. I found my dress and veil and couldn't be happier! The entire staff was very friendly and accomodating and I'm very grateful! If you are hesitating on where to start your search I would absolutely have The Curvy Bride as my number one pick! Thank you again ladies!
I bought my dress at The Curvy Bride just this past weekend and it was a WONDERFUL experience! Being a super plus size bride I did my research and booked my first bridal appointment with The Curvy Bride and I am not looking back. It was an hour drive for me but so worth it. I had corresponded back and forth with the owner Michelle a few times through Facebook Messenger and she was very quick to respond and always helpful when I reached out with a question. I had asked if if they had a certain dress in stock and while they were waiting for it to come in at the time she took the time to reach back out to me and let me know when they had gotten it in which I really appreciated. When I got there with my mom, sister and close family friend we were welcomed warmly by Marie who was my consultant, she was getting the dress I had inquired about ready for me as we walked in. Michelle came out to greet us and gave me a big hug, it was nice. Marie was great to work with and super helpful. She put me right at ease. She told me I was her last appointment of the day and not to worry about how long I took. My ladies I brought with me had plenty of room and seats to be comfortable and I had a whole section to myself with a pedestal to model each dress in. I tried on my dream gown first and loved it but tried on a few others.... one was a contender so we put on a veil and everything but I still wasn't sure so I got back into the first dress and decided that was definitely the one. Marie brought us out some delicious peach moscato to celebrate, she took pictures for us and even after we took measurements and put down the deposit Michelle and Marie were still so nice taking more pictures for us and allowing us seconds of champagne. I can't wait to go back and see these wonderful ladies when my dress comes in. I was anxious about dress shopping but I could not have had a more perfect experience. Michelle and her staff are so kind, welcoming and helpful. It was totally stress free!
Maria was fantastic. We did not feel pressured to make a choice on either visit. I didn't find the dress in my first visit and by the time I got back in store three weeks later there were entirely new dresses to try on! We said yes and it was great! Stress free!
I can't say enough good things about working with Michelle and Paige. I'm beyond 100% satisfied with my experience!
Michelle and Paige are superb. The dresses are beautiful and the customer service is amazing. I highly recommend this dress shop.
Michelle is so awesome, I had tried on over 20 dresses at another bridal shop which was a terrible experience. When I got to the Curvy Bride, I wasn't expecting to find my dress, but Michelle was so sweet and patient and made me feel like the only bride in the world. She stayed within my price point and when I tried on the third dress only, my eyes started to tear. I knew that was the dress and she did too. It was a great experience. They have sizes to fit your curves an style. I'm an older bride so I didn't want something flashy, she listened and helped me find the perfect dress.
I got my dress last week and could not have been more pleased with every aspect of The Curvy Bride! I have struggled my whole life to feel beautiful in my own body, and when it came time to go wedding dress shopping I just accepted the fact that I would be again settle on a dress that wasn't flattering. I could not have felt more comfortable and beautiful on my appointment day! The service you receive at Curvy Bride is second to none! My dress is the most gorgeous dress I have ever seen, and most importantly I never felt more comfortable or more beautiful! ! The Curvy Bride is nothing short of a miracle experience in my book!
As a full figured bride, the day it came time to wedding dress shop, I had more butterflies in my stomach than ever before! We went to a few stores and nothing looked right or felt right. Then, we went to The Curvy Bride. Michelle and her team were absolutely everything! They made me feel so comfortable and welcome, I felt like I was trying on dresses in my living room! I can't express enough how you NEED TO GO TO THIS STORE! Not even a store, go visit your WEDDING FAMILY! I seriously can't give enough words to tell you that this store is absolutely the best thing ever! The second you walk in, the atmosphere is welcoming and so open. Being self-conscious is not an option here because no one will ever make you feel like you need to be! Thank you so much!!
I love the Curvy Bride!! Michelle and her team are great to work with! They make you feel so comfortable and at ease while you try on dresses in private. And they don't look down on you or try and rush you like some other bridal shops, they truly love when a bride finds her dream dress. There is a huge selection of gorgeous gowns and I absolutely adored my gown for my wedding on 6/20/15. Everyone loved my dress and couldn't stop commenting on it all night. The seamstresses are amazing and the work they do is spectacular!! Michelle made me feel like we were family and she was genuinely excited for me!! I can;t say enough great things about the Curvy Bride!!
If it wasn't for this place, I probably would have had to go to my wedding in sweats! lol I was DREADING wedding dress shopping and wanted to put it off indefinitely, but this place was a godsend. Most of the samples there were TOO BIG on me; I couldn't believe it! Michelle, the owner, is a sweetheart; she really cares about her customers. Paige, with whom I had my appointment, was very patient and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend this place to anyone!
I just love the Curvy Bride. I had a wonderful experience with them. Everyone said how beautiful I looked in the dress and I really felt beautiful in it. That doesn't happen a lot being plus sized. We traveled 2 hours to the store and it was well worth it. My mom got her mother of the bride dress and her own wedding dress there. If you are plus sized and want a magical dress shopping experience do yourself a favor and go to the curvy bride.
Words cannot express how grateful I am for The Curvy Bride! I had gone to many bridal boutiques in my town and they would only have one or two dresses (if I was lucky to try on) after months of disapotment, I was done looking for my wedding gown. One night I decided to google search plus size wedding gowns and the first website to pop up was The Curvy Bride, I clicked into the page and I was in heaven. I read how they became a business and I was in tears because I was able to relate to Michelle in so many ways.
Right away I made an appotinment and I was super excited for once to go dress shopping! When I walked in, I never felt more comfortable, I was able to try on every dress in the boutique. I am a very organized bride and since The Curvy Bride post every dress on there Facebook page, I already knew which ones I wanted. Michelle was so impressed that her and her team quickly grabbed the dresses and we had a runway show. Thank you Michelle for making me feel so beautiful and special. The personal attention you give every bride is amazing, my sister had purchased her dress there as well. We thank you for making are dreams a reality!
I can't say enough good things about this place! I started out wedding dress shopping at a regular shop and had the worst experience. I happened to see an email about The Curvy Bride on my phone while I was driving back and decided to stop in. I came in right before closing on a Sunday, and everyone was so nice and encouraged me to stay even though it was late. They listened to what I said and pulled three dresses and the first one I tried on was perfect. They made me feel so special and beautiful. I just picked up the dress on Saturday and was shocked how great the dress looked. It made me so much more excited and confident for my upcoming wedding. Michelle, Paige, and one other woman (I can't remember her name :/) helped me on my two visits and were just so sweet, pleasant, encouraging, and KNOWLEDGEABLE!! If you have curves, check this place out- you will not disappointed. We deserve to feel sexy and beautiful when we're shopping for wedding dreses just like everyone else!!
Paige was absolutely amazing. I must say my road to The Curvy Bride started as I was on the phone making an appointment at another salon. While i read their reviews as I spoke with them I asked them about their typical sample size. That's where the panic set in. I didn't want my experience to become about me feeling bad about my body because I could only hold up a wedding dress to myself and imagine what it would be like. So I did a bit more searching and came across The Curvy Bride. The Curvy Bride Salon is about making you feel comfortable from the moment you walked through the door. We were never rushed, Paige helped to pick out very flattering options and after 5 dresses...I said YES!!! The dress is so beautiful and the prices are so amazing. I would recommend this bridal salon to any bride. What a fantastic experience. I couldn't thank you ladies enough!!!
I had such a great experience here and ended up getting my dress from this place.. everyone in the store was so polite, kind and helpful... Obviously by the store name they have an array of dresses in plus sizes but I was more impressed by there customer service.. Being a size 16 borderline 18 I had a hard time trying on dresses in other bridal salons and I'm a bit of a late planner but they were able to rush my dress for only 50 extra dollars.. Overall it was a great experience and I would recommend this place to anybody looking who is plus size
My mother took her friend to the Curvy Bride for a mother of the groom dress. My mother's friend is a very tall size 24. They had went to two other well known, popular bridal stores and they did not come close to the selection The Curvy Bride had. Each dress was better than the next. They were unique, stylish, and beautiful, she ended up liking several she tried on and bought a dress that day. Michelle was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. This place will not disappoint you!
Let me just say, this place is amazing. I was dreading going to look for a wedding dress. I came across this place online and made an appointment immediately. I am so glad I did. It is such a nice boutique, and it made trying on dresses fun and stress free. Dawn & Michelle were amazing, so personable and caring, I really felt taken care of. Their selection was incredible and I had no trouble finding the gown of my dreams. The wedding was amazing and the dress was perfect. I can’t believe it’s taken this long for someone to hone in on this market, but I’m so glad Michelle did. Thanks so much Curvy Bride I am truly grateful for the wonderful experience.
Being a plus size bride is not the easiest. I was told multiple times to just hang the hanger over my neck to "get an idea" since I couldn't try it one, I was even told by one owner "maybe I should lose some weight before the wedding to fit into a dress or go to David's Bridal" the experience was beyond terrible and heartbreaking. I tried David's Bridal and was happy to find dresses I could physically try on. Don't get me wrong the dresses in my size were pretty but all the dresses I liked or thought were gorgeous, again I couldn't try on because they didn't have my size. I turned to google for plus size wedding boutiques. First name on the list was The Curvy Bride. I made an appt and went. The experience was beyond AMAZING! When I walked in I was greeted and placed in a PRIVATE room where the doors can close and have an intimate time with my family and friends. The attention was 110% on me. Michelle was amazing, I literally could try on any dress in the store because I could fit in them all. Michelle was so reassuring and helped me find a style that I loved. And when I found "the dress" I cried, I felt so gorgeous and amazing. I didn't feel like a plus size bride. She helped me pick out even gorgeous accessories to match each dress to get the whole idea and the wow factor. Hands down love this store and wish I had gone there from the start. After I bought my dress and was unsure about it, Michelle was great at reminding me how much I loved the dress and how gorgeous I looked in it. She's amazing! And to have the owner personally be there to help makes you feel important. There is hope for plus size brides!!! You don't have to feel disappointed. If you want to feel beautiful and amazing I HIGHLY suggest going here, you won't regret it at all!!! Thank you again Michelle for everything!! Can't wait for my fitting in April to try my dress on again, feel amazing and fall in love all over again.
I contacted Michelle, the owner, four months before I actually had an appointment about a brand they carried. From the first email until my appointment in January, Michelle was so attentive. She answered every email I sent; let me know when the dress I was hoping to try on would be in the store; and kept me up-to-date on new lines that would be at the store when I finally had my appointment. Anything I asked she provided a friendly and quick answer. By the time my appointment came up I felt like we were friends! When we got to my appointment, the two brides before me were running a little longer, but both Michelle and Paige came out multiple times to make sure we were okay, offer us drinks and snacks, and to let us know we could start picking out the dresses. The rooms at the Curvy Bride are great. They are separate rooms so each bride has her privacy and isn’t uncomfortable. There were enough seats for all five of my bridal party members and plenty of room to walk in the dress, spread out and enjoy the afternoon. Paige worked with me on my dress selections and helped get me in and out of my dresses. She was so friendly and nice, and offered her opinion on what I would and wouldn’t like based on my reactions to dresses. She was interested to hear about my fiancé and learn about me and my friends. Even though we got a late start to our appointment, I was done within my allotted time, though Paige and Michelle would have let me keep looking if I hadn’t found the one just a few dresses in! I wound up getting that first dress I asked Michelle about four months earlier. She was so excited for me and came in and gave me a big hug upon saying yes to the dress. There was even a champagne toast! For any bride looking for a dress, this is a great store, run by great people. I couldn’t have had a better dress shopping experience. I would recommend it to brides of any size.
The Curvy Bride surpasses all my expectations for finding the perfect Bridal Gown. I walked into my appointment with Maria prepared to be disappointed. It was my first appointment and I cam armed with various magazine clippings and print outs of my favorite styles. Maria instantly found my top choice and escorted me into the private changing area to try it on. The changing was never awkward and Maria made the process effortless for me. As a plus size bride, I was ecstatic to have dresses available in a plethora of sizes which actually closed! I was able to try on different veils and head pieces to get a really good idea of what the dress might look like on the big day. Maria was an amazing consultant and made me feel at ease in a normally stressful situation. After trying on about 8 dresses, I was sure that the first option was the one. I decided to purchase my dress that day and the Curvy Bride brought out champagne for my whole party! Not only was the service impeccable, Maria kept the salon open an hour late to help me with paperwork and facilitate the sale. She was a star and I am so grateful for her help! I can't wait to pick up my dress and start fittings in the summer. I highly recommend this store for any plus size brides!
Thank you so much for making my day a dream come true withy amazing wedding dress. My day was perfect. My husband was so surprised and loved my dress. I felt like a princess who fairytale came true. You ladies were amazing every step of the way. I had the best experience a girl could ask for. Thank you so much for everything
Huge shoutout to the team at the Curvy bride!! Being a plus sized bride is Hard! Especially when you REFUSE to settle for a boring dress!!! I received the very best treatment from the entire time, and never did I feel FAT! Honestly I was pretty disgusted with the bridal industry in New York City and I am glad that I took that long drive to jersey. To all of my thick, curvy, Plumpy, juicy, beautiful friends, when your special day comes I would recommend the Curvy Bride because Every bride deserves to feel beautiful !!!
Thanks soooooo much to the ladies at The Curvy Bride! Maria and Michelle were awesome! We had a blast! xoxo
I had an amazing dress shopping experience at the Curvy Bride. I purchased my dress in February of 2017 for my January 2018 wedding. It was the the second and last store I went to searching for my dress. Paige was AMAZING and extremely helpful. What I liked most about working with her was that she was extremely patient with me and made me feel comfortable the entire time. The entire time I felt that the experience was about me finding a dress that I loved and not about Paige making a sale. I never once felt any pressure from her to purchase a dress (which I cannot say for the first shop I went to). Michelle the owner was also a pleasure to deal with. After I ordered my dress I decided I wanted to order extra lace and everyone at Curvy Bride was so accommodating and responsive. I know that as a plus size bride dress hunting can feel overwhelming but at the Curvy Bride they will put you at ease and make the entire experience enjoyable, as it should be!
