I was very nervous about dress shopping. This was my first time doing so, and I was just so nervous I wouldn’t find anything. Catherine and her workers were better than I could’ve ever expected. The owner actually called me the night before to see how I was feeling and that really helped bring my anxieties down. It made me feel very welcome, I loved that. The consultant lindsey that I had was absolutely amazing. She made me and my bridal party feel so special, she listened to everything I had to say and the dress I ended up picking was one that she picked based on what I was liking and not liking, that goes to show how good she is at her job! She was amazing. I would recommend this boutique to anyone, it was the best experience I could’ve asked for.

This is my very first time wedding dress shopping, and I had very little expectations. I honestly had no idea what I was looking for, and my stylist took GREAT care of me. From the moment I walked in, it was nothing but professional as well as trusting environment. I was able to be honest with my likes and dislikes without judgment, which is what made me nervous to start my search. Highly recommend Catherine’s no matter where you are in your perfect dress search!

My consultant was literally the only reason I made it through the dress try-on process. She made it so easy and helped keep me from being discouraged. Give that girl a raise, seriously. I may not have gotten my dress that day, but if I do choose to purchase my dress from Catherine's it will be because of my consultant!

I had such an amazing experience. I am not your typical girly girl, and coming here was the best idea I had. So glad I found your store, I was able to go in nervous and come out relieved. I was able to find my dress!

We worked with Emily as a stylist and she was so sweet, knowledgeable, and helpful. The shop was clean and well organized. There were several beautiful dresses to try on and it appeared there were lost of options for bridesmaids and mother of the bride as well.

Cameron was 100% perfect and made me feel comfortable. She was patient, kind, understanding and picked out 3 dresses before I arrived. She was knowledgeable and caring. I choose a dress she originally had picked out! I absolutely love the dress and the whole experience. I'm very happy I came to Catherine's, because I went to another store previous and didn't get a good experience or like there dresses. I cannot say enough good things, truly thank you soo much and Cameron is amazing!

I went into the store not knowing what kind of dress I was looking for or how I would look in “the one.” They made me feel amazing in each dress I tried on even if I didn’t think I looked amazing. They were really patient and kind and the dress I chose I felt and looked stunning in! They really work well with you!

I literally have NOTHING bad to say about my experience. The moment we walked in we were welcomed with smiling faces. I checked in for my appointment & they got me situated with Lynnsey. She took us to our area and we began right away! Not only were the dresses GORGEOUS they were all affordable (2100 or less). Lynnsey was HANDS DOWN the best consultant I could've asked for. It was like she was hand picked just for me! She made me feel so comfortable and confident. She was also compassionate, caring and personable. Not only did I say YES to the most perfect dress, I made a friend. And I'm forever grateful for my experience.

Catherine’s bridal is the best place to go if you’re looking for your dream wedding dress & the most helpful staff! The girls go out of their way to make the whole experience perfect! All 9 of my bridesmaids found the most beautiful dresses here & I found my dream wedding dress! A special thank you to Emily, Cameron, & Cathy for all that you have done for me- I can’t wait for the dresses to all come in & see it all put together! :)

Liz was amazing! She made my first experience of trying on wedding dresses great! She made me feel very comfortable and didn't try to push things on me (like dresses outside of my desired price range)!

The way she was able to pull the different dresses after I said I disliked/liked something about the previous one I tried on, it amazed me! She took everything I asked for in the dresses and found the most perfect ones!

Liz was AMAZING! She made me feel so comfortable and listened to everything I loved and things I didn’t. She listened to my mom and my little groups feedback and answered any and every question we had. She never made me feel uncomfortable or stupid for anything I asked. I am SO happy I came to Catherine’s to find my dress. The day could not have went better.

I had the pleasure of working with Grace! The appointment was wonderful. There were dresses picked out for me when I arrived but there was also an opportunity for me to pull some myself. As we went, Grace pulled other dresses to match my feedback. I had such a huge fear of trying on dresses and being uncomfortable and not feeling beautiful. Grace did an amazing job at making me feel at ease and boosting my confidence! I love that I was not pressured into choosing a dress immediately and my preferred dresses were entered into an account that I can look at anytime. Honestly, such an amazing experience. This really set the bar for other stores and appointments!

The ladies at this dress shop are so professional and full of knowledge. They listened to all of my wants/ concerns and helped me find the most perfect dress for my I-Do day. The ladies were all so patient with me and made me feel so special. They even were so kind to "fake" bustle one of the dresses so I could see what that would look like. I never felt rushed or like an inconvenience. My bridesmaids were even able to try on dresses, as I was trying to decide what color looked best with my dress. I would highly recommend Catherine's for all of your Bridal needs!

Michaela was amazing! She was so patient and helped me narrow down just what I was looking for. I don’t think I could have made it through the appointment without her. She helped me find the dress of my dreams and I couldn’t be happier!

I had such a great appointment today-6/5/2021. I had my mother and future mother-in-law with me. I tried on about 5-6 dresses and I found my dress! I said yes to the dress. Thank you so much for allowing us to come in and finding the wedding dress of my dreams. Your staff was absolutely amazing!

It was an amazing experience. I went in without knowing a style and my consultant, Lindsey, was a huge help. She helped me try on all styles until I found a style I loved. Then, she helped my find my perfect wedding dress. I owe a huge thank you to her for being so patient and listening to what I like/want. It was such a great experience and I will recommend anyone to try your store first.

From start to finish Emily was absolutely amazing! I felt completely at ease and relaxed. I found the perfect dress the second dress I tried on and she was completely patient with me while I tried on others to be sure. Once we found mine she helped find all of my bridesmaids dresses along with my mom’s dress. None of which was planned for the day. I would highly recommend as EVERYONE we encountered there made us feel welcome.

I had my first bridal boutique experience on Saturday, March 13th, 2021. My dress consultant (Liz Evans) was absolutely amazing and patient. She has a dynamic personality and I felt very comfortable with her from the first day of scheduling my appointment. As this is my first experience as a bride (52 years old), I didn't know what to expect, i.e. what logical questions should I ask, what are reasonable expectations, etc. Liz was honest and accommodating not only with me but also with my three family members.

I really loved the atmosphere and the girls helping me. They kind knew what type of style I was going for after a while and picked some dresses for me. A really good experience since it was my first time trying on wedding dresses, just not ready to buy quite yet.

Liz was very, very helpful as I navigated through wedding dress shopping. I had no idea what to expect, but she immediately put me at ease with her knowledge and experience. I found the perfect dress for me and was very happy!

The employee, Liz, went above and beyond to help me find the one. She really listened to my wants but still showed me different styles of dresses so I could rule out what I didn’t like.

Amazing!!! Great service and great experience. Wouldn’t have had my bridal shopping any other way!!

My experience here was out of this world. First of all, I just want to recognize Liz A. for the outstanding assistance she gave us. She was so helpful in trying on the dresses and had already picked such amazing dresses for me to try on before I had even gotten there based on my pre appointment questionnaire. Unfortunately, I did choose a dress elsewhere, but that DOES NOT mean the dresses at this shop are not AMAZING. Some of the dresses Liz picked out for us were jaw dropping. Our experience at this shop was amazing! Thank you Catherine's!

Grace helped us at Catherine's Bridal and was absolutely amazing. We could not have had a better experience. I was a picky bride to work with but Grace listened to all of my requests, was patient, and was very knowledgeable about what could be done with alterations. She never made me feel pressured and was sure to be sure I got exactly what I wanted.
