I had the best experience at Catherine’s Bridal! I found my dress on my first visit and Ariel helped me with anything I needed and let me try on all the dress styles, sizes, and neckline shapes to find out what I liked. Needless to say she did amazing at helping me find my perfect dress for my wedding day. I highly recommend her as well as the shop overall. The owner is super friendly and was complimenting my dress and how it was the perfect fit for me as well which led me to know I made the right decision in coming here. I will be back for my bridesmaid dresses!

I had a wonderful time trying on wedding dresses with Ariel! I was so nervous but she put me at ease and helped me to choose the dress that I love. I am very happy I choose to go to Catherine's Bridal!

My mom and I were both super nervous going into the appointment, as it was my first time dress shopping, and Ariel was so great to work with! She seriously made it feel really relaxed and fun! I was able to try on as many dresses as I wanted, she suggested options, answered all of our questions. The dress selection was AWESOME!

Ariel was absolutely amazing I adored her, I think I found my perfect dress I just have to work everything out. She helped me fit into dresses that I didn’t think would fit me, she gave me dresses I thought I would hate but I loved, and made the process so beyond easy!

I LOVED my experience here!! Unfortunately I found a dress at another store that I just couldn’t leave behind. I loved the dress I found there but was truly very sad that I wasn’t getting it from Catherine’s! From the moment I walked into your store I felt so welcomed. Cathy, you were so so wonderful and I truly appreciate all of your help and your patience today! My appointment with you was so much greater than other stores I visited! You were focused on me, you were helpful, patient, had very great opinions and advice to offer. Although my dress didn’t end up coming from your shop, I will be back to purchase my veil and bridesmaid dresses from you!! Thank you so very much for making my experience so amazing!

This was my first bridal store I have visited looking for my wedding dress. I was blown away with the attention I was given by the staff. When I was providing my preferences, I felt completely heard because every dress she pulled for me to try on was in my style. She helped me with the changing process and provided endless suggestions and helpful comments. I left the boutique with so much more knowledge on wedding dresses and especially styles that best compliment my features. I went to David's Bridal right after, and the staff there helped me if it was convenient for them. You just cannot find this kind of service elsewhere. Additionally, they keep the dresses you like on file so you can always return or compare later! AND they'll keep your dress on site until you need it closer to your date!

The staff was awesome at understanding what I wanted for my wedding and was really helpful! I still haven't fully decided on a dress and may be back to keep looking! I did not feel obligated to just pick from wedding dresses. The staff knew my theme is unicorn and I wasn't sure if I just wanted a white dress. Thank you for being so helpful!!

I walked in; no appointment and was greeted by Catherine! I immediately began trying on dresses. I believe I tried on 2 or 3 before seeing ‘THE’ dress; which had just arrived that day or the day before and was still in it’s mailed package! Super impressed with my experience and cannot wait to get married!

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!
