I had a wonderful experience and found the dress! Debbie was so sweet, knowledgeable and helpful. I will be recommending this bridal shop to anyone looking for a wedding dress.
I loved the people there and such a great variety to chose from. I tried on like 15 dresses and left with a beautiful dress. Elise was such a great help. I loved her so much. I’m going to recommend this place to everyone!
Sara Durham from The Bridal Shops of the Avenues.
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. She made it so comfortable and fun. I had already had a horrible experience dress shopping somewhere else and was nervous about this appointment. So happy to come back in May and buy my dress!
Jordan Lauramore from Phillip's Highway
Elise Hilgeman was amazing! She gave me options to ensure I would get the dress of my dreams! She was always available and anticipated my needs, but still gave me the space to think on my own.
Allison from Jacksonville
These ladies are on the ball and truly love helping brides find their perfect dress. The shop has beautiful designers at great price points.
Savana Gerrells from Tifton, GA
I had the best experience possible when I came with my maid of honor, mother, and future mother-in-law. I found my dream wedding dress and had fun the entire time! The lady who helped me was extremely helpful and positive the entire appointment. There was nothing bad about my experience! So thankful to have found my dress there.
Beverly from Jacksonville, FL
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!!
Diana Roberts from Jacksonville, FL
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!
Desiree from Jacksonville, FL
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!
Teresa from Avenues
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!!
Brittany Jones from Jacksonville Southside
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.
Amanda from Avenues
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!
Valerie from Jacksonville
I could not have had a better experience. Elaine was great.
Aquiel Miller from Jacksonville
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!
Caitlin Harkins from Avenues
Elaine was so kind and helpful. I found a great dress, in my budget, and walked out with it! Thank you for the help.
Sam from Philips hwy
I had such an amazing experience getting to say “yes to the dress” I couldn’t have been happier with any of it! They truly help make that day memorable.
Today I purchased the wedding dress of my dreams! My consultant Elyse, was absolutely phenomenal. She was absolutely incredible and made my experience exceed all my expectations. I could not thank her enough for making the experience fun and stress free. An addition, I would love to thank her for her kindness, direction, and knowledge. 100% will recommend Debra’s bridal to all my bride friends... and hands down Elyse for consultant!
Kim Rice from Jacksonville
Elise helped me find the perfect dress for my beach wedding. She was patient, kind, and able to accommodate my low budget needs.
Catherine from Jacksonville, FL
Everything was great about this experience! I had one previous wedding dress appointment at a different shop and had a not so great time. But at Debra’s, they made me feel special, and my associate Rachel was very knowledgeable and helpful! The selection was great and the prices were on point. The whole experience took a lot of stress out of a very stressful time, which any bride would appreciate! I would recommend Debra’s to any bride!
R from Phillips highway
I had a great experience shopping for a dress for my wedding vow renewal ceremony. Elaine was my consultant, she was helpful and patient. My daughters were unable to be there with me, but Elaine took pictures for me to send to them. I found the perfect dress at the right price.
Alexa Olney from Jacksonville, FL
Already posted on google, the knot and wedding wire! My experience at Debra's Bridal was nothing short of amazing. Elise welcomed us with a big smile, a positive attitude and the perfect amount of energy! She helped me narrow down which style I felt the most beautiful in and was extremely patient throughout the process. She gave us a few tips and tricks on how to save money with alterations and made sure that we left without any feeling of regret. I was delighted to say yes to the dress at Debra's Bridal and I would recommend it to anyone in the area. Beyond the service, the collection was the best of the 4 boutiques I visited in the Jacksonville area. If you are looking for a wedding dress in Jacksonville, make sure that one of your appointments is at Debra's Bridal!
Sarah Dooley from Southside, Jacksonville
My consultant, Rachel Jacques, was absolutely amazing. From the moment we walked in, she made sure we felt comfortable. When she brought me back, she picked some of the exact dresses that I wanted to try, and was great with communicating to my group on what to look for. She was always by my side, ready to help me zip up or carry my train. I couldn’t have asked for a better consultant to help.
Hannah from Jacksonville
Elise was amazing. Super helpful and vibrant. I loved having her help me search through wedding dresses with me. Such a fun experience with her by my side`
Raechl Ayers from Jacksonville Florida
They work with you whatever you need! I came in thinking one thing and left with a dress i would’ve never tried on. The stylists are patient and decipher what you’re looking for even if you yourself don’t know. Highly recommend
Nancy from Avenues
Debra's Bridal shop was the fifth bridal shop I visited and Elise was most amazing. I think I got lucky with my timing, because there wasn't anyone scheduled behind me, but I was rushed not did I feel obligated to purchase. I did find my dress!
Hayley from Jacksonville, FL
I was so apprehensive about trying on dresses, but Elise made everything so enjoyable and fun!! I would ABSOLUTELY work with her again and recommend her to anyone. The store made everyone feel so comfortable and relaxed. Really the best experience I could have asked for!!

Bianca McHenry from Avenues
My sales consultant was Elaine and she was absolutely wonderful! she literally got on hr hands and knees each time to either fix my dress I was trying on or helping with the extra skirt. She truly went above and beyond and was nothing but pleasant the whole entire time. I appreciate her hospitality and she helped me pick my dream dress.
Sarah from Jax
Amazing customer service- fun, bubbly, patient, and super helpful. Their huge selection of inventory left my jaw in the floor- i wasn’t ready! Lol. Seriously so many amazing options and prices can’t be beat. Something there for every bride’s style. And did i mention the huge sale rack at insanely unbeatable prices?! This place is great! ??

Mrs. Joni was wonderful. She took her time with every little detail and answered every question. She didn’t rush me at all with anything and was upfront and honest on her own opinion which helped me choose my dream dress today 1/26/19 ?? Thank you all so very much for all your time and hard work.

Elise was amazing! She was so friendly, helpful, and did a great job helping me find a dress. I can’t wait to come back with my mom to buy my dream dress!
Katrina Redmond from Jacksonville, Florida
Wonderful selection of dresses. I have been to about 8 other shops in the jacksonville area and was having a hard time finding what I wanted but this shop had so many I loved. Definitely have an eye for picking out gorgeous gowns. Plus the prices all seemed reasonable. Now the hard part is going to be deciding which one of their beautiful dresses to choose. To top of their wonderful dresses was the consultant that helped me thru the whole experience. Elise was not only very kind and personal but she helped me to select dresses that looked perfect on me. I would definitely recommend this place for all brides looking for the perfect dress. They do not disappoint :)

Jacinta L Anderson from Jacksonville Fl
From the minute I walked in the door, I felt comfortable and the anxiousness was at ease. My consultant Elise was AMAZING!!!! I could immediately tell that she was passionate about her role in Debra’s Bridal. This is not just a job to her. I literally felt like royalty... like I was the only one who mattered and it didn’t matter how much I spent; she made me feel truly “Special”. Elise was patient with me, I FINALLY found MY dress and Yes, I said Yes to the Dress!! and my mother, sisters and my daughter did as well. If I ever need to get a dress for ANY other occasion I will Definitely be back to see Elise. Thank you for today; I cannot tell you that enough! Thank you, thank you, thank you and thank you!!
Selena from Jacksonville
I was very impressed with the beautiful gowns and the professionalism of the associates. Rachel my stylist was very sweet and helpful and I would recommend this bridal shop to any bride looking for a wedding gown.
Emily Elia from Jacksonville, FL
I loved shopping for my dress at Debra's Bridal! Funny story: I accidentally canceled my appointment the day before and didn't realize it until that morning but I called in and they fit me right back in and they were super sweet about it! I had a pretty good idea of what I wanted in a wedding dress and my consultant, Joni (?) I believe, pulled out every dress she thought was as close to my vision as possible. She was so sweet and could always tell when I didn't like a dress and didn't want to speak up to my family. She did a great job developing a relationship with me and the people I brought with me throughout the appointment. I ended up purchasing the second dress I tried on! I was able to purchase the sample size too which was just a nice added bonus. I won't have to wait for the dress to come in or pay for the shipping which is really nice. She even recommended alterations professionals in my area. Wonderful service, boutique feel, and I was totally in love with my dress and my veil all for staying right at my budget. It was perfect!
Kathya Vergara from Avenues
Ms. Jodi was amazing! She was so patient and made me feel comfortable!
Kaylyn from Jacksonville
What an experience! I found the dress of my dreams with my best friends, mother & mother-in-law to be by my side at Debra’s. Elise did such an amazing job tailoring to my very specific & demanding needs while making me feel entirely supported, respected & beautiful. Her customer service, patience & suggestions was much appreciate, not to mention made our experience much more enjoyable & comfortable having he help. All of the staff were so welcoming & kind, truly making me feel like a beautiful bride to be. I am so glad my friend suggested I look at Debra’s, now I can’t wait to wear my stunningly perfect dress on the day I officially start my life with my amazing husband! Thank you SO much for everything! I am looking forward to bridesmaid dress shopping within the next few months at Debra’s as well.
