I was very nervous coming into try on wedding dresses, but I was relieved when the lady who helped me was so sweet and helpful. She talked me through everything and listened to what I wanted. She was very attentive. I would 100% go back and I would highly recommend this boutique to anyone!

It was very comfortable, no pressure, no rushing. Cassandra was not at all intrusive and made tasteful suggestions.

My experience was great!!! And even though I couldn’t try on the dress (it was out of stock in my size for the samples on the floor) that I think I am going to love, the salesperson gave me the dress designers name and style code so I can try it on somewhere else and come back here to purchase it. I absolutely loved my experience and everyone was so nice. I will definitely be back.

The bridal consultant Cassandra was wonderful. She listened to everything I was saying. They didn’t just treat me like a time line. She brought in dress took out dresses until I found The ONE! It was a great experience!

Beautiful store with beautiful wedding gowns! Cathy is WONDERFUL!! This was the 4th place I had been to looking for my dream gown and I found it here! She was nothing was helpful, sweet and funny! She didn’t pressure me into buying anything, she offered her personal opinion about different dresses and colors (For wedding dresses and the bridesmaids) She only showed me dresses that were in my budget. She also didn’t try to make me try on dresses that I didn’t want to, the second I said “ehh it’s pretty but I don’t think it’s for me” we moved on! Absolutely favorite dress shopping experience so far! Very highly recommend!!!

Sam was fantastic! We called last minute to see if we could get a same day appointment & lucked out! Both quality of dress and Sam's customer service was stellar. This was first day of wedding dress shopping & it turned out to be a wonderful experience for my Mom & I.

I was reluctant to find a dress after my experience with David's Bridal. After trying on dresses from Catherine's Bridal Boutique, I was amazed on how beautiful and comfortable the dresses were. Sam did a wonderful job helping me find the type of style that I envisioned. She was so patient and courteous, with her help I found the perfect dress on the first day! Overall, the boutique was adorable and inviting, I had a great time. Thank you for making the whole process so much easier!

My experience here was everything I could’ve asked for and more. Kristine went above and beyond to help me find the perfect dress while keeping me cool, calm, and collected. I would 100% recommend getting your dress here. The selection was amazing, Kristine took what I asked for and made it a reality. The whole day was a dream because of her and her help.

I honestly didn’t even plan on going into Catherine’s and trying on dresses! But I did, the first one I tried on was the PERFECT one. Great selection from wedding gowns to bridesmaids dresses. The best part was the customer service, very attentive and was very honest about every question I had. I would recommend this place to everyone. My best friend is also getting married and she has already booked her appointment next month! Thank you so much for helping me find the perfect dress.

Having never shopped for a wedding dress before I wasn't sure what to expect, but I couldn't be happier with my experience at Catherine's. The staff were incredibly helpful and friendly and they took their time to help me find the perfect dress. I look forward to returning for bridesmaids dresses in a few months!

I LOVE Catherine's Bridal Boutique and everyone who works there! Beautiful, clean, and organized shop! My appointment went great! I had excellent service from the owner herself! My Sister and I were able to try on numerous dresses, we took our time and didn't feel rushed at all! I will recommend this dress shop to any bride or girl going to prom! Thank you, Catherine's for a WONDERFUL experience!!

I loved shopping at Catherine’s for my wedding dress. I had an amazing experience and the staff was incredibly helpful!! Couldn’t have asked for a better experience. I highly recommend asking for Christine when you make your appointment. You won’t regret going to Catherine’s I promise that!

It was fantastic. I brought my mom and 4 of bridesmaids with me. Sam was my consultant and extremely helpful. Not only did I find the perfect dress, I found the potential bridesmaid dress as of right now as well. I will be bringing my in-laws and my father back so we can place my wedding dress order. I tried on about 15 gowns with Sam and she was patient and very helpful. I tried on the dress I love twice. And now, I still look at pictures everyday. I love it and it is the opposite of what I thought I'd like. That's what they say though. I am so excited that I found something unique to me.

My experience was great! I walked in not really knowing what I wanted or where to start and with in a half hour I was helped to find my perfect dress!! Everyone was also very friendly. I can't wait to come back for the mother of the bride dress

I loved that I did not feel pressured to make a decision. I was torn between two dresses and was able to try on different dresses multiple times. I was able to 'create' my dream dress by adding sleeves and a belt and was supported through it all.

I had such a wonderful experience at Catherine's! Renee was so helpful in finding dresses in the styles I liked, even showing me the fit and different color options in their catalogs (since the ones I tried were not my exact size). She was so positive and encouraging and listened to my feedback as well as the feedback of my family and friends. She was very patient and knowledgeable, answering all of our questions. The smaller boutique feel was a great set-up - she let my maid of honor help me in the dressing room, and it was so great to have my mom and friends right outside to easily show them all the dresses I tried on. They made us very comfortable and relaxed, and I found the perfect dress! I would highly recommend them to other brides!

I absolutely recommend this bridal shop!! Whether you're looking for your bridal gown, bridesmaids dresses, or mother of the bride dresses, I was very impressed by the staff and the overall options available in the store! The woman who helped me find the perfect dress was amazing and made my overall experience awesome. I went to two other places before this and the women helping me at those places we're rude and pushy. At Catherine's I felt completely comfortable and my bridesmaids did as well! It was by far my FAVORITE place!

I am not a first time bride and didn't want to spend a fortune on a wedding dress. Christine was very friendly and helpful as soon as I walked in the door. I ended up getting a bridesmaid dress that comes in ivory and Christine did not pressure me to get a higher priced bridal gown. She was so accomodating, so helpful, so nice and I feel confident in recommending Catherine's to shop for bridal and bridesmaid gowns.

My family, best friend, and I had such a wonderful time at Catherine's! This was the most spacious out of all the bridal shops I've been to, along with being bigger bride size friendly which I absolutely LOVED! All members of the staff were helpful and warm and made me feel comfortable along with educated on each dress. I'm so glad to have picked my dress from this lovely shop.

I had a wonderful experience at Catherine's. My assistant was very helpful and attentive while I tried on numerous wedding gowns and she even pulled dresses for me when I wasn't looking which gave me a fresh look at dresses I never would have picked. All the ladies were great. Very friendly and always smiling. I will definitely be going back for my special occasion dress needs.

I have absolutely no complaints. Everyone was very helpful, accommodating, and not the least bit pushy! I was never pressured to make a purchase, and overall the experience was fun and stress free. We even had a few laughs trying on the princess Elsa dress. These girls are fun and inviting for sure!

My family and I had a wonderful experience. I truly appreciate you taking the time to help me find my dress and giving me the experience that I had. It was a great way for me to start looking for my dress. I did find 2 that I really liked, and will be coming in again to see them sometime in the near future. Thank you again!
