I can’t say enough wonderful things about my experience here! Granted there were COVID-19 restrictions on my first visit (I’d say in my favor in terms of being the only bride at my appointment time and feeling so comfortable), but it was also the staff who made it so memorable. I never felt pressured or rushed, and the process was very smooth. I found my dream dress on Pinterest thinking I’d never track it down in Michigan, but Renee Austin carried the exact one and it actually turned out to be THE ONE! Although I ultimately got the first dress I tried on, they had so many other gorgeous gowns to offer. I could’ve spent an entire day feeling like a princess in there—highly recommend.

I felt super safe with the limited number of people in the store, hand sanitizing, masks, and temperature checks at the door. Paige was super friendly, great to work with, and helped me find my dream dress :). Thank you!

I couldn't have asked for a better wedding dress shopping experience! From start to finish it was everything I ever hoped for. Eliza was beyond patient, kind and helpful. Renee Austin Wedding is the place to go!

Such a great experience!!! I went to other bridal shops and no one listened to me like Eliza! She found exactly what I was dreaming of while we had so much fun joking around, etc! I will always recommend Renee Austin!

Eliza did a fantastic job pulling dresses for me and found the perfect dress that was exactly what I was looking for! She didn't try to cut the appointment short and kept pulling dresses she thought I might like, even when I thought I already knew. I would give more than 5 stars if I could! Great customer service, very pretty dresses, and very affordable!

I have been to several bridal salons over the last month and this one was a great experience! I was given honest feedback and felt like the assistant did an excellent job explaining how alterations would change the dresses I tried on. She was amazing with her clips and I was very impressed. I would recommend this shop to anyone looking for a dress.

They were so great. Especially with navigation the ever changing guidelines with COVID-19. They kept me constantly updated, and my dress came in right on schedule. I live out of state and they were still able to work with me and provide amazing service. Highly recommend.

Eliza helped me find my dress and it was the best experience! She was so knowledgeable about all of the products, she did research about different gowns that I liked and she was very personable. She has great taste in gowns and especially veils! I would definitely recommend shopping at Renee for wedding gowns and loved my experience!

I had a great time at Renee Austin. The staff was friendly, professional, and very easy to work with. They helped me feel relaxed and comfortable as I tried on dresses, and really went above and beyond to make the dresses fit how I would like (including pinning the sleeves to how I would have them altered so I could see how it would look). The selection of dresses they have are so beautiful, unique and creative. I'm so glad I went here and was able to find my perfect dress!

Absolutely AMAZING experience! Eliza is a complete gem to have had as a consultant. I told myself there was zero chance of walking out with “my” dress at my first visit, but I found it after trying on just 6 dresses. I even got to walk out with it in hand, tonight!! The process was so much fun and Eliza truly listened to what I wanted. She also had great insight to know what would look good on my curvy body. All of the gowns in the boutique are stunning! I am truly obsessed with mine and the perfect veil to compliment it. I couldn’t be happier all around!!

Absolutely amazing!!! The dress selection is wide and literally every single one is stunning. Eliza helped me out today even though she wasn’t my original consultant, she did SO well! She did her research about me and what I bought and what I like and was so helpful and encouraging. :) everyone here really want you to be happy and feel celebrated.

The staff is AMAZING! They kind, sweet, funny, upbeat, passionate about what they do, & overall fabulous. My first shopping trip I said yes to a dress but after some self searching, I had major remorse. They talked me through it and the second time I came back we found the perfect gown. They’ve even worked with me with the arrival date of the dress when my fiancé decided we should get married 6 months some. Needless to say, I can’t give them enough praise nor tell them how much I’ve appreciated all of their hardworking and dedication to making our wedding a dream come true. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

I just LOVE Renee Austin and everything that comes with it. Eliza was the best hands down. I couldn’t have asked for a better person and service when it came to something so special like getting my wedding dress. I’m so happy to have gotten my dress through RA and to tell people for years to come my positive experience.

Loved my experience here! Paige was super helpful and I felt like she really tried to get a feel for what I liked before we began. There was never any weird pressure or “get 10% off if you decide right now” either, which was great for someone who needs to take their time on decisions. Shopped a lot of places and this was easily my favorite in West MI!

I absolutely adored my assistant Eliza! I had a wonderful experience. I showed her a few pictures and told her about my budget and within three dresses tried on, I found 2 that I really loved. She was very personable and worked well both with me and my family. I could tell she really loved her job and it showed. I went shopping at one other place earlier and this experience was by far and away the best. I will be recommending Renee Austin in the future.

Eliza was AMAZING!!! have nothing but good things to say about working with her to find "the one". I felt like we clicked right away and that I could be myself with her the whole time. Everyone at Renee Austin has been so easy to work with and kind throughout the whole process. 10/10!

I can't say enough about the service we received at Renee Austin. Our consultant made me instantly comfortable. We had tried on dresses at multiple salons and none held a candle to our experience at Renee Austin. We came back to the salon the day after my appointment to purchase my dress, but I wanted to try it on once more to be sure. Even though we did not have an appointment and the salon was packed, they made sure I could try on the dress without making us once feel like an inconvenience. I am so grateful to Renee Austin Wedding for giving me such a dream dress-shopping experience!

I loved looking at wedding dresses at Renee Austin. They don’t have a great variety, but they have many beautiful dresses. I came in having an idea of what I was looking for. The worker who helped me, Paige, did a great job of listening to what I liked and didn’t like at the beginning of my appointment. I ended up buying the first dress I she picked out for me!

Had a great experience at my first wedding dress appointment. Dre was fantastic and very helpful! She made my family and I very comfortable and we all had a great time!

Mia was my stylist and she nailed it! It was my third dress shopping experience, so I was able to show her my top two from the other stores. She found the most perfect dress that incapsulated everything I loved about both into one dress. She was genuine, friendly, and made me feel comfortable. And the best part was I found my dress!!
Samantha Dalman from Renee Austin - Grand Rapids

We had a great experience with Andrea. I had a few specific things that I knew I did not want in my dress when I arrived but was otherwise very open to neckline, silhouette, etc. She was very helpful in pulling a variety of options knowing that I was a bit anxious about the whole thing. Overall I had a fantastic experience and ended up finding the dress in my first appointment.

Had the best time picking out a dress at Renee Austin! Dre took the ideas I had into consideration and curated the perfect collection for me to try. This was my first time trying on dresses so I did not plan on finding one...but my expectations were exceeded tremendously and I cannot wait to wear my new dress! Would highly recommend to any future brides.

Mia was so warm and welcoming. I loved my experience at Renee Austin. I tried on several dresses but the first one I tried was the winner! I love the selection of designers present in the shop, the space, and the way we were treated. Very warm and professional. A big thank you and I can’t wait to wear this very special dress soon!!

I had such a wonderful appointment at Renee Austin Wedding! My consultant was sweet and knowledgeable. She listened to what I was looking for and picked a beautiful dress that ended up being the one. The veil, belt, and shoes she picked as well went just perfect with the dress. I also am very thankful for your appreciation to healthcare workers this year. Because of your discount I was able to get a dream dress I would not have considered due to budget. Thank you so much!
