I had a wonderful experience at your bridal shop. Elise was wonderful. She asked all the right questions, pulled some really great dresses and did not pressure me at all. She helped me narrow down what I was looking for. She knows her job and you can tell she really loves the job, as well. I would recommend your bridal shop to anyone!

Elaine was PHENOMENAL and found me exactly the dress I was looking for. She was straightforward, direct, and open minded. She knew the store and every single dress like the back of her hand. Would highly recommend Debra’s bridal shop for any bride looking for the perfect dress!

I cannot say enough good things about my experience at Debra’s Bridal. Elaine was exceptional and pushed me out of my comfort zone to try things I didn’t think I would like. Her guidance and expertise allowed me to find my dream dress and I am so thankful!

Elaine was incredibly knowledgeable about dresses, fabrics, and alterations. She asked questions to help get to know what I liked and what I was looking for. She helped me with putting on each dress. She really made me feel comfortable. It was such a wonderful experience working with her. They had incredible options on dresses. She was very open and honest about what would be needed for each dress. I really couldn’t have asked for a better experience trying on dresses. I will highly recommend her in the future and the experience of shopping at Debra’s!

I said YES to the dress! I would like to thank Elaine Brotherton for helping me with choosing my dream dress. Her experience and professionalism made the entire experience here to feel personal, efficient, encouraging, and most importantly made me feel special. Not only is she incredibly knowledgeable about the gowns, but she is sweet and encouraging, making the entire experience fun and relaxed. Thank you again Elaine and Debra's Bridal Shop. 5 BIG STARS :)

Lynn was so kind and attentive throughout my appointment! At no point did I feel pressured or rushed by her, nor did I ever feel judged. She made finding my dress the most effortless and happy experience. I was also pleasantly surprised at the range of dresses offered and the great price points. I would recommend Debra’s to any future bride!

Absolutely amazing! Autumn was so helpful and patient. The whole team has been helpful and is even ordering a dress so I can see if it is the one for me! I had such a great experience and hope to find my dream dress here!

Autumn was so helpful and patient during the whole experience. I would definitely recommend!! It made for a great day. She knew the shop so well and she really helped me explore my style.

I had Elaine helping me pick my dress, and she was incredible! I was on a rather tight budget and was also feeling indecisive, but Elaine was very patient with me and was very methodical and thorough with her questions so that she could help me find exactly what would suit me best. There were also quite a few other customers there, and I'm a bit shy, but Elaine took care of everything and helped me feel more comfortable during this intimate moment. I'd recommend Debra's Bridal Shop and especially Elaine to everyone!

Such a kind hearted staff. I came in not knowing what I wanted and left with inspiration and a much clearer picture of what my wedding dress should be! I highly recommend this friendly place.

This place was amazing! They made me feel special as soon as I walked in the door. Lilly was my consultant and she was so sweet and she asked lots of questions and really helped me find the perfect dress with ease. I even chose the wedding gown she chose for me that I would have never chose myself and I fell in love with it and had that special moment. It was great!

My sister found her dress here last year, and her experience was so wonderful that I flew down from Colorado to look for my dress here too. Elise was my hype woman! I absolutely love your store and the selection of designers you carry. Elise made sure to only show me dresses within my budget, and if something went over I liked she made sure to point it out before showing me or offering for me to try it on. I never felt pressured to say yes or purchase anything, and Elise took all of my feedback actively and ended up finding my dream dress on the sale rack in my size. So incredibly happy with my experience here, and we will continue to refer our friends and family!

Autumn was the best person to work with! She was excited from the moment I booked on the phone and was so helpful finding dresses to try on that fit my style. Debra's Bridal had a lot to choose from and a great range of prices.

Amy was an AMAZING consultant! As a plus size bride, I was very nervous to try dresses on. Amy was kind, thoughtful, and funny! She made me feel right at home and helped me to find the perfect dress! Everyone in the store was so kind! Store was nicely organized and had a HUGE selection! Thanks again for helping me find my dress for my big day!

Elaine was so amazing. She truly listened at my vision for my wedding and what I wanted. I end up saying to a dress I would never even think to look at. She picked it knowing that it would look great on me. The experience was beyond! Thank You again!

Amy was AMAZING. My family and I had the best day thanks to Amy and everyone at Debra’s. Thank you!!!

I had the best time trying on dresses here! Elise was my consultant and she was fantastic. She let me pick a few of my own and she had some suggestions that we spot on. She also made sure to stay with in my budget! She also did a great job listening to my concerns and dislikes and adjusting the dress choices for me. I would recommend anyone go wedding dress shopping here!

Autumn was absolutely amazing! She convinced me to try on a strapless gown, understating my concern for support, and if she hadn’t, I would have never found my perfect wedding dress.

Best customer service and with Autumns help ( I’m not sure if that’s how you spell her name ) I found my dress in one hour ! I’m gonna look and feel like a princess on my wedding day !! Thank you so much again

This was our first dress appointment and we had SUCH a good time with Elaine. She is truly the best. She educated me and my MOH on all things related to bridal shopping. I didn’t feel rushed and she did not push anything on us. She was honest about pricing and about her opinions about each dress. Her pinning skills and knowledge were unparalleled compared to our second appointment. Thank you Elaine for being so personable and overall a genuine, funny, and fantastic person and stylist!

I live in the middle Georgia area and hadn’t found a dress so my family and I decided to go to your store in Jacksonville. I’m so happy with that choice because y’all had the exact style dress that has been so hard for me to find. Amy was really helpful, friendly and made it fun to try on dresses. Thank you so much for all the help I received on finding my wedding dress ??

Pricing was great! But Elaine was AMAZING! It was my first time trying on dresses and ended up leaving with one.

Autumn was awesome ! She listened to what I was looking for and I was very open minded to anything she had me try on . If I wasn’t I wouldn’t have found the one :)

My experience at Debra’s was exactly what I wished for. My stylist was very in tune with my vision, the shop was clean and organized. My guests had ample sitting, and was also given the opportunity to pick some options to try. I could not have been happier!

I cannot rave enough about Elaine at Debra’s. She was fantastic and simply a dream to work with! It was my very first time looking at dresses and she knew exactly what to say/ask to help me along the way. She was so encouraging and educational. Not pushy at all like I’d heard about in other bridal shops. At the end, we asked her how long she had been in the business, thinking she would say something like 20 years, and we were shocked to learn it has been less than 5 years! She came across as a true expert who really knows her stuff and loves to help people. I will recommend her to any bride I speak with for years to come.

Elaine, my consultant, was very knowledgeable about different types of styles and designers. She was very insightful and had vision that helped me pinpoint exactly what I wanted and why I wanted it. Her support and effort did not go unnoticed and I am so thankful she was there to guide me!

Elise was AMAZING! She was so friendly and thoughtful with everything she did and really listened to everything I had to say. She considered all of my wishlist items for my perfect dress to make sure I found one that I really loved. Trying dresses on is very intimidating for me but she made the whole shop feel like a safe place to do so. I have already recommended Debra’s to one bride-to-be and will continue to do so!
on 11/10/2022
Autumn was very helpful! Especially because she helped me pick my dress twice! I came in thinking I found the dress and couldn’t stop thinking about another dress. When I called they were so understanding and let me make another appointment to make up my mind. I found my dress! Couldn’t be happier with Debra’s.

This was my first visit and first time ever trying on wedding dresses. She made me feel comfortable, was honest about what would work. I didn’t plan on buying a dress on my first visit but I found the one and couldn’t leave without it being mine. Thank you again to Debra’s bridal.

Such a great experience! I had Amy as my bridal consultant and she was such a joy to work with! She listened to what I wanted and chose some dresses that fit my vision but also encouraged me to try things that I may not have chosen initially which helped me realize what I do and don't like. There was no pressure to purchase a gown right on the spot which I was worried about but the whole team at Debra's Bridal was so helpful and sweet! Such a great experience!

Absolutely wonderful experience! My bridal party and I had a fantastic time with Amy as I tried on wedding gowns. Amy was personable, fun loving and down to earth. She gave honest advice and I felt like myself around her. I appreciated the intentional time Amy spent with me and how helpful she was through the entire process. We were there longer than an hour and a half and never felt rushed. I look forward to going back to the shop for my dress fitting in a month! I will definitely recommend Debra's Bridal to anyone I know looking for a wedding dress.

Elaine was very sweet and very helpful and even helped me decide on what styles of dresses would look good for me. I love the selection and I love how cozy it feels inside the bridal shop.
Stefani Morgan from Jacksonville, FL

Debra's Bridal was a fun experience. I think the dress selection was great, I was able to try on two dresses that I couldn't find in other shops, and my consultant Elyse was fantastic! She really made the whole experience what it was, honestly for her I would give 5 stars! I'm giving 4 just because the viewing space is a little small, but we made that work really well and honestly had fun with the other bride sharing our area. The other thing was that there were a few consultants that didn't have the same warm and welcoming personality and were a bit intimidating. One other super positive thing to note is that the shop was very accommodating to my need to virtually call in my mom and sisters who live in various places across the country. Having my family able to be a part of my dress shopping was so important to me. Overall, I would highly recommend coming to Debra's Bridal, and I would certainly try to request Elyse if possible! Thank you Debra's Bridal for a great experience!

My mom and I had a wonderful experience at your shop. Elise was so sweet, thoughtful, and accommodating to us. I appreciated her guidance and help she supplied to me in finding a dress within my budget and that had the princess essence I was looking for. We can’t wait to get married on a beach and will send you pictures after the ceremony. Thank you ladies so much!

Amy was super sweet and helpful. The shop was welcome and beautiful. My daughter and I both bought our dresses here. I would absolutely recommend again.

Amazing experience! I was a little subconscious about my body since loosing so much wait but Joni made me feel beautiful in every dress I tried on. Also she stopped me from trying on dresses out of my budget that my crazy entourage chose. So thank you for keeping me on track :-)

Elaine was AMAZING! She not only made the process of finding the perfect dress fun, but she also gave us some good picks that we wouldn't have pulled on our own. Surprise! Her pick ended up being the dress I said yes to. I can't thank her enough for finding my dress. She's my hero!

After going to multiple appointments at other stores, we ended up compelting the process of finding the perfect dress here at Debra's! Not only do you get to take as many pictures as you want, you get to look through the gowns by yourself! If you're a soon to be bride, you may know some places don't allow certain things. At Debra's, my wonderful consultant, Elise, was everything you wanted your stylist to be! She never pressured you into trying anything you didn't want, and always wanted the best for you as a person. I can't say enough good things about her & her energy that she made you feel while trying on dresses. I had a great experience here and actually got to walk out with my dress same day! Very affordable and a variety of very beautiful dresses!

I came in two different times to try on dresses and both times were perfect. Everyone was so kind, knowledgeable and made it fun. I never felt pressured or stressed. Overall it was a perfect experience. I have had several friends buy their dresses here so it is nice to see that they have maintained their quality over the years.

I had an amazing experience at Debra’s! I had an awful experience at another bridal shop and left in tears, Autumn was able to fit me in for a quick look at dresses and I was able to say yes to my dress! I am so thankful for her kindness and compassion! I will definitely recommend Debra’s like it was recommended to me!
