I absolutely loved my experience here! I came in knowing what I wanted and was able to find exactly it! The staff made it so easy and comfortable to find a dress that I could be myself in and were so sweet!! I went to 2 other places before and this was a 10/10 experience for me! Everyone should come and at least look! And it's so wonderful to be able to support something bigger than yourself while shopping for your wedding!

I love my experience at the Bride Project. The ladies were super helpful. They had such a wide selection for my size which i was initially worried about. Eventually I found the dress that I fell in love with and said Yes to the dress!!

I was pretty nervous about going dress shopping, but the team at the Brides Project made me so comfortable and it was a really fun experience for not only me but also my family. I found an amazing dress that makes me feel special and was able to support the mission of this non-profit. Thanks to all of the volunteers who dedicate their time and energy to this cause -- you're really making people's lives better in so many ways (mine included, thanks!).

Absolutely loved my experience here, everyone was so helpful and I was able to try on a wide range of styles and sizes until I found one I fell in love with! The dress had some damage to it and they weren’t sure what could be done to fix it at first but I came back for a consultation with the seamstress and she had actually made up a solution already and it was perfect. So happy with my dress!

I had an amazing experience both times I was visiting The Brides Project! Margaret helped me both times and she was amazing, so helpful and patient. There were so many wonderful dresses at your shop! I found the dress and it is perfect. Thank you for how you care for brides and those going through/supporting those with cancer.

I loved the brides project! I went there twice, and both times Heidi was amazing! She was so personable, friendly, encouraging, not pushy at all, and made me feel very comfortable. I wasn’t ready to buy anything my first visit, but when I came back ready in February, the selection of dresses was even better! I found my dress and I am so happy!

I had an amazing time picking a dress here with my family. The staff was extremely kind and helpful. All the proceeds go to a great cause and I would 100% go again if I ever needed to! This cause is near and dear too my heart, due to the passing of a family member that had cancer when I was a teen. Thank you for all you do and keep up this great mission!

My mom, future mother-in-law, and I all had a wonderful time at The Brides Project! Diane, our volunteer consultant, was so patient, kind, and helpful throughout the whole process and even explained details that I hadn't thought about before. They have a wonderful selection, amazing prices, and best of all, the profits go to a great cause! Can't recommend The Brides Project enough.

My experience at The Brides Project was more than I could have expected. I was treated with respect, dignity, care, patience, and love. I had a blast picking out my wedding dress with the best entourage and the best consultant, Kristin! I would recommend The Brides Project to anyone looking for a first stop for wedding dress shopping!
Kristin T. from Ann Arbor

The Brides Project provided a wonderful dress shopping experience. Laurie was very helpful and got me in and out of several dresses in a short period of time. They had a much better selection of plus-size dresses than I had anticipated, and it was nice to try on dresses in something close to my size, unlike at traditional bridal salons where they give you something 5 sizes too big and clip it to make it fit. While I didn't find "the one", I acknowledge my needs were rather picky as it's for a destination elopement. If I were doing something local and a bigger event, there were several gorgeous ones I would have considered. I would highly recommend checking out The Brides Project to anyone looking for the perfect gown!

I had a great time! All the staff at the store were friendly and listened to what I was looking for in a dress. There was no pressure, and it was a fun experience. I didn't buy anything during my appointment, but I returned the next day to get my favorite dress after sleeping on it. I feel good knowing that my money is supporting a good cause. Thank you!

I was warmly received at my appointment by Kristin and Sue! Both ladies were very patient and incredibly helpful as my girlfriend and I looked through the dresses. We were both amazed at the selection of dresses you carried and the exceptional service provided! I ended up narrowing it down to 2 dresses which were saved in my profile and after making a decision, returned two days later to pick it up! Not only did I find my dream dress that matched the style I had wanted from the very beginning of my search (but wasn’t keen on spending $5,000 on) but it felt great to give to a worthy cause! You run an awesome store with the best volunteers! I’d recommend The Brides Project to anyone getting married!

Margaret was very helpful, listened to my likes, dislikes and picked the PERFECT dress for my wedding! The price point was great, the store was beautiful and everyone was very friendly.

I was so impressed by the staff and dress selection at The Brides Project! I didn't realize they also have bridal accessories like veils, boleros, tiaras, and even shoes. I have been recommending it to everyone I know since finding my dress there!

The BEST experience!!! Found the dress of my dreams! It’s a couture dress, never worn before with a retail tag of $3,000 and I only paid $700! The consultants were so supportive and helpful! 1000000% recommend taking the trip!!

Margret was so wonderful to work with and the dresses were beautiful. I found my dream dress and it was only a fraction of its original price!
Grace from Lansing

Margaret was an angel and we had such a good time. All of the ladies had great taste and suggestions, we ended up going with a dress and veil pulled by Margaret and a waist tie pulled by Heidi. The value is simply unbeatable and the cause is so wonderful as well. This project is incredible.

I cannot express how awesome my experience was today! My volunteer Lisa was amazing, honest and passionate. There was a overwhelming selection in a huge range of styles and sizes. The mission of The Brides Project is one every bride should be so happy to support! I cannot thank you all enough, I will be recommending them to every engaged women I meet!
Clarice from Michigan

I was set on getting a secondhand dress and this was the perfect place! I went in for three separate appointments to try dresses and the helpers there were so knowledgeable about dress styles, alterations that could be made, etc. It was easy to see that they really want the bride to be happy with her dress. Plus I didn’t feel pressure to make a decision when I wasn’t ready. I found a dress I love, and it’s a win-win because it cost me less than if it were new, and the money goes to a meaningful cause!

Amazing, amazing, amazing. I think it truly makes a difference that the women that are helping at your location are choosing to donate their time. You can tell they absolute love being there and are encouraging and not pushy at all. Makes all the difference when taking off the pressure of buying at enjoying the process! What a fun time picking out my wedding gown! I’m so happy with what I purchased and the cause it’s supporting and had the best memories to go with it! Thank you Heidi!

We had such a great time here looking at gowns and being made to feel so special! I was lucky enough to find a dress for my big day and the staff were so helpful and seemed genuinely happy to be working there!

We had a great time and were very impressed with the huge assortment of affordable dresses that were available. Heidi was very helpful and made the experience fun. Lots of laughs! My daughter found a couple dresses she loved but wasn't ready to commit because this was the first store we visited. I hope we will return to purchase one of the beautiful dresses she tried on.

I had a lovely shopping experience and ended up buying a dress. I wasn’t sure I was ready to buy walking in but I found a special gown at a great price. I loved how many different styles to choose from, there were even some couture labels. The staff made the process very clear and I followed up the next day to purchase my dress over the phone. I am very happy.

I’m so pleased with my experience dress shopping here. Ann Arbor is 3+ hours from where I live, but when I found out about this place and their mission with supporting families affected by cancer, I knew I had to go. This was the only shop I visited, so I wasn't sure what to expect, but the store was lovely, and the stylist I worked with was so helpful! There were several beautiful dresses in stock in my size, and I’m so happy with the dress I chose. It took me the full 90 minutes to try on dresses and make a decision, but no one tried rushing me. Also, on a personal level, I was happy with the level of help. I have body image issues and appreciated that the stylist made it clear that she would help as much/little as I wanted getting dresses on and off. She was attentive to what styles interested me and didn’t push anything that didn’t interest me.

Margaret was absolutely wonderful! Coincidentally we are getting married within a month of each other and spent the entire time chatting about our upcoming wedding plans. It was so fun and she truly made me feel like girlfriend than a "customer". I was completely comfortable with her and totally at ease. The store, fitting rooms, and dresses are all very clean and easy to access. I appreciated the wide variety of styles/colors and was even able to find the perfect dress! I SAID YES TO THE DRESS!! Oh, and I found the perfect pair of shoes too! Thank you, again, for making this such a fun experience! Above all, I loved being able to support such an incredible organization! I highly recommend stopping in.

I had a great time! The selection was much bigger than I expected. The associates who helped me were obviously very experienced, and they gave useful advice without being pushy or over-involved. I also appreciated the veils, tiaras, etc available to try on. I found my dream dress at a very reasonable price, and am glad that the money goes to a worthy cause! Would 100% recommend to other future brides.
