I was very pleased with my recent visit to Debra's Bridal! I was assisted by Joni, who helped me find the dress of my dreams for a reasonable price! I felt much more comfortable at Debra's than I did around the corner at the 'big name store'.

This was my first time wedding dress shopping and it was wonderful. I absolutely despise shopping, so I wasn't expecting to have such good experience. However, Rachel did such a great job making me feel comfortable. She was excelled at selecting dresses to fit the vision I have for my wedding and I never felt any sales pressure. I was able to find exactly what I was looking for and am a satisfied customer.

Rachel was absolutely amazing and made me feel so welcomed and comfortable on this day! I was nervous as it was my first bridal fitting and even being a curvier bride she made all of worries go away of finding a dress that would fit!

Rachel was beyond amazing! After showing her my style, she ended up picking out my dream dress. She went out of her way to make sure my look was complete head to toe. She then helped me pick out my bridesmaid dresses and mother of the bride and groom dresses. I recommend anyone to Debra’s bridal and Rachel to find the dream dress for your big day.

Elaine was such a great help for me today. Her knowledge of the dresses in Debra's inventory was most impressive and useful. We were grateful for her advise and expertise. She helped me in selecting my perfect dress. Many thanks.

I had such a great experience at Debra's Bridal Shop. My consultant, Elaine, picked up on my style immediately and was extremely patient with me. This was my first time shopping for wedding dresses and she was wonderful about teaching me the terminology used to describe the dresses. She would not pick any dresses over my budget, which I really appreciated. Amazing experience!

My consultant was Rachel and she was so great. I’m quite self conscious and was worried about being pressured into gowns but I felt no pressure at all. Rachel was very attentive always standing outside my dressing room and getting me more gowns. Ive gone in 3 times (because I’m crazy) and felt no judgement by her. She was so great and helpful at making me feel confident I picked the perfect dress.

Going dress shopping can be a tedious process(or so I’m told) however this was my first stop and I found THE dress! As a last minute decision my family and I decided to begin our search for my perfect dress! Debra’s bridal was so accommodating arranging a same day appointment for us. Walking into the salon I was greeted with a beautifully high energy welcome by the woman who I was lucky to have as my consultant. Elise was simply AMAZING through our entire process! I felt so beautiful in EVERYTHING I tried on haha even the dresses that were a bit more snug I never once felt self conscious about my body thanks to Elise. We tried on multiple dresses and not once was I made to feel pressured or of an inconvenience to her. I loved how personable she is and how engaged she was with me and my bride tribe. This moment was very special having both mom and especially my grandmother present so it was so nice to enjoy this moment without feeling like we were on a time crunch. She stayed within my price point AND gave me great alteration suggestions along with point of contacts for those alterations. Definitely such an amazing experience!

I went to my bridal appointment today and met my amazing consultant Elise! She was the best! She wasn’t pushy and listened to everything I wanted in my dress. She helped me to realize that even though my personality is over the top, the dress I needed was just something simple and classic. She was extremely patient, even when I didn’t want to take my dress off! She made sure to take my measurements to guarantee the best size for me and even helped make suggestions on how I should accessorize my look. She was perfect! Thank you so much Elise! It was a pleasure working with you! Thanks for helping my find my dream dress!!!

Joni is the most patient and sweatest consultant I’ve encounter by far! The whole experience was lovely and very calm, specially when you’re stressed out looking for a dress. She made everyone so comfortable and always gave her honest opinion. She was never pushy! I would definately recommend Debra’s Bridal Shop and make sure you talk to Mrs. Joni Mocas!

I absolutely loved my experience at Debra’s bridal! It was my first time trying on dresses and I couldn’t have pictured a better day! I never felt rushed or pressured to purchase anything. Elise was the best consultant! She had such a positive attitude and she knew exactly what other dresses to pick out for me based on what I liked and disliked about the ones I had picked out. She found the perfect dress for me and I can’t wait to wear it on my wedding day!

Elaine was wonderful and made my first-time dress shopping experience so fun and enjoyable. She really listened to what I was thinking about or my vision, but also brought her experience and knowledge to the appointment. Her pick--which was a bit outside what I "thought" I wanted--might end up being THE dress! I've got to wait for my mom to be able to fly down to decide for sure :) We'll be back when she does!

I was hesitant coming in, but Rachel made everything so easy and put me right at ease. She answered any and all my ridiculous new bride-to-be questions and helped me find THE dress. There were several groups in the shop but the consultants kept us all moving right along. Perfect experience.

My bridal experience was amazing. The lady who helped me was amazing! She made the whole experience so relaxing and fun. I felt so comfortable and once I put on the dress I knew that was the one. It was a combination of everything I was looking for. One top of finding my own dress we also found my bridesmaids dresses. It’s such a relief to be done with the part of the wedding planning. Thank you for everything you all did for me yesterday.

Rachel was AMAZING! I was super nervous coming into the appointment this morning but she quickly put me at ease. She helped me select styles I liked and even a few I hadn’t seen. I found the “one” and it was actually one she had picked for me to try!! I would highly recommend Debra’s Bridal Shoppe! Lots of styles and lots of affordable options too. Thank you for an amazing experience!!

What a wonderful experience. Both my sister and I are getting married and we had back to back appointments. Our consultant Elaine was great at making each one of us feeling special and focusing on just one bride at a time. She was great at listening to what we wanted and sticking to our designated budget! We both ended up saying yes to a dress! Will definitely be going back to look for bridesmaids dresses!

Debra's Bridal Shop was very friendly and welcoming! They allowed me to select a large number of dresses to try on and definitely helped by giving advice but also having the "you do you" mentality to choose the perfect dress. I would not have wanted to shop anywhere else!

I had a great experience shopping at Debra’s Bridal shop! Our consultant Elise was very sweet and helpful in my dress search. Debra’s had a dress I had saved a picture of, which ended up to be the dress I said “yes” to! The prices, atomosphere, and dress selection were wonderful. My mom and I did not feel rushed or pressured into making any decision. Elise pulled some beautiful veils so I could better invision the dress in all its glory. I wouldn’t have changed the experience at all. Thank you!!

What an amazing shop and loving bridal staff! You all made us feel like family in this boutique from start to finish! Rachael was absolutely wonderful and had us talking about her charm ever since we’ve walked out of the door! The collection was amazing, gorgeous, and included dresses I loved! I have not chosen my dress yet but I certainly got the feels in my top 2 dresses! I believe we will be back :). We were allowed to take our time, laugh, smile, and have a blast. Thank you all for everything and I believe any bride should stop by this boutique and fall in love!

Elise was the best bridal consultant I’ve met on my journey of finding my dress. I said from the get-go that I wanted a dress covered in sparkles and no lace. Debras Bridal had just the dress for me!!!! The selection of Debras Bridal was amazing after experiencing two other dress stores that lacked in the diversity of different styles of dresses. My bridal consultant, Elise knew exactly what dresses to pull for me that fit exactly what I was looking for. Her high energy and bubbly personality was just what I needed after feeling like I was never going the dress for me and dress shopping was no longer exciting, but felt like a chore. Elise turned that around for me. She was reassuring, extremely patient, and extremely in tune with my wishes. I can’t say enough good things about this store, the selection and Elise. She genuinely cared about me being happy overall and wasn’t pushy or aggressive about helping me decide to purchase my gown.

Debra’s had the best selection of long sleeve dresses compared to anywhere else. My sales rep that helped me find “the dress” was fantastic and they worked with me to make sure I could afford the dress I fell in love with. They are awesome!

I was SUPER nervous about going dress shopping. I’m not at my ideal wedding body just yet and I thought that would affect my dress shopping experience. I came to Ms. Elaine with a specific concept I wanted and by the end of the appointment I’d chosen something I absolutely love and can’t wait to walk down the aisle in! She was sooo comforting and understood my personality, catered to my family, and made sure my experience was unforgettable in the best way! This has been my favorite part of wedding planning thus far! I’d even visited other places BUT the hospitality of Debra’s is second to none!
