I came in not knowing really where to start and only knowing what I don’t like. Mia was so perfect. I ended up saying yes to the very first dress I tried on and bawled my eyes out when she put a veil on me! I can’t thank her enough for making today so enjoyable and easy for me. I came in super stressed and nervous and left feeling so amazing. I 100% recommend Mia, she is so wonderful!

Amazing selection of dresses and very kind, non-pushy staff that make dress appointments fun. My dress looks amazing! I appreciated how the ordering process was very straightforward.

Had a great experience! Jenn did great, never made me feel pressured to say yes right away. This is a huge decision and my first try on there I wasn't able to have everyone there due to scheduling conflicts. Then, when I came back with everyone a few days later, Liza was amazing! Never made me feel rushed and helped make the dress look like what it would look like when ordering it. Since the one I was trying had a darker slip and no boning in it. Liza helped get the right look and I said YES!

An AMAZING experience!! Eliza was the best and made the whole experience so personable. I felt like she really listened to the ideas I had and also helped guide me to the perfect dress when I wasn’t quite sure what I was looking for. She was so informative on all of the different options between dresses and the components that could be altered or adjusted to craft my dream dress. She was so kind! I would 100% recommend Renee Austin to any bride looking for their dream dress!

Absolutely loved my experience with Renee Austin Bridal! Eliza did a great job of listening to my wants/needs and also balancing what family members wanted me to try on. Kept everyone happy and excited the whole time and helped me (a very indecisive person) find the perfect dress! Making sure anything I tried on was something I was interested in, felt comfortable with and was within budget, there was never pressure to make a decision, like a dress, and prompted me with good questions to help me process what I wanted in a dress. 1000% will recommend to everyone!

The minute I walked in for my appointment they made me feel welcome. Paige was my consultant and she matched my vision in almost every dress I tried on. The dress I said yes to was everything I wanted! When I came back to pick up my dress Paige had another appointment so I was matched up with Eliza and she did amazing getting me in my dress and letting me soak up the moment. Paige stopped over to see how it fit and made sure everything was good. I would give this place and all their staff 11 stars if I could because they made my experience everything I would’ve wanted! I Highly recommend giving them your time to find your perfect dress. Thank you Renee Austin and staff for giving me the experience every bride would want.

Mia was so kind and helpful, there were a few details that needed to be changed about my dress and she was so sweet and assured me that she wanted it to be perfect for me and that we could make that happen! She GAVE me the perfect necklace we found to go with the dress since I will have to wait another month to take it home with me. I’ve had simply the best experience with Renee Austin!

By far one of my favorite dress shopping experiences! The consultant was very thorough in taking the time to learn about what I was looking for. She pulled so many great dresses, and I trusted her knowledge and experience! Would definitely recommend to others!

Paige was so kind and helpful, and knew exactly which dresses to pull based on a brief description of my vision. She gave advice and was very attentive to my requests and budget. Felt like I was playing dress up with a friend I’ve known forever! Grateful for the experience and cannot wait to pick up my dream dress in a few months. ??

I couldn’t have had a better experience here. Paige was the most perfect stylist to work with. She was so accommodating, fun, honest, complimentary, and so easy going. She was able to help me find my DREAM dress and even squeeze me in on a busy day to re-try it on for family that was in from out of town. Such a beautiful store that made my bridal dress shopping such a wonderful time! Could say so many great things about this place!

My mom and sister visited the store with me today and we had THE BEST experience. I forgot the name of who helped us (ugh I am terrible at that), hopefully y’all can see who was assigned to us because she made our experience. She killed it on picking out dresses that fit every specific and lack of specifics I gave. Plus she was just so kind and fun! I am IN LOVE with my dress. Thank you!

Wow! Paige blew my mom and I away. She was incredibly attentive and listened throughout our experience. The proof? The last dress we brought out encompassed all the little things I was looking for and I said an easy yes!

I visited your bridal salon today and worked with Mia. She was AMAZING! She listened to all of my ideas and concerns. She was so friendly, kind and most importantly, so knowledgable about the dresses and designers. The dresses she showed me were exactly what I was looking for and she quickly and painlessly helped me find “the one”. I would recommend your store to anyone and everyone! And thank you again to Mia!!!!

Can I give 8 STARS?! Eliza was the sweetest stylist and my experience at Renee Austin couldn’t have been more perfect. I didn’t have a great experience elsewhere and I was a bit nervous I may not find the ONE and I couldn’t have been more wrong! Right away I fell in love with several and with her guidance and my families help I decided which one I wanted without even knowing it. This day will be a forever memory to look back on! Thank you Eliza!!
Kate Lamy from Grand Rapids, MI

I worked with Mia for my bridal appointment and she was incredible! This was my second bridal shop visit and although Renee Austin is a smaller boutique, I felt like they had so many more options and much better quality than other shops. I was amazed at how variations they had of the style I wanted and was in tears when I said yes to the dress! Mia was the perfect amount of encouraging, helpful, insightful and fun! She made me feel so relaxed and gave my party and I time to discuss options privately which I appreciated. Mia clearly knows what she's doing. They also had so many veil options! Best day ever (besides getting engaged lol)! THANK YOU MIA & RENEE AUSTIN WEDDING!

12/10 Experience!!! Paige & Mia were amazing to work with:)
on 08/04/2023
This salon was the best experience of my life. Every consultant was such a dream to work with. They went above and beyond to make sure I could try on my dream dress going as far as calling the designer to get a sample shipped to them if mine sold during their sample sale. Their communication was top notch and everyone made me feel welcomed and special. I will 100% recommend this salon to anyone and everyone.

Mia was so helpful and knowledgeable. I had the best experience. She listened to what I wanted and understood my wants and wishes. Super happy with my experience and so glad to find my dress!!!!

The whole experience was great and Paige really helped me a lot. She listened to what I asked for and helped me try on multiple dresses. This was my second time coming, first time for a friend and this time for my future wedding and I had great experiences both times!
Jenna from Grand Rapida

Paige was super sweet and so helpful! I had an amazing experience and would definitely recommend Renee Austin to all of my friends and family. I wasn’t really sure what kind of dress I wanted going in today, but Paige recommended multiple different styles and helped me narrow it down to dresses that fit my body and personality well!
Michaela Quam from Renee Austin - Grand Rapids, MI

I absolutely loved my experience at Renee Austin! We had Eliza, and I could not have asked for a better person to help me through wedding dress shopping. I went to a place before and felt very discouraged. The experience there was uncomfortable, awkward, and monotone. This experience was the complete opposite! From the moment I walked in, it was a blast :) the music, the champagne, the personable and happy workers, and the beautiful dresses! I loved how Eliza got down on our level and got to know me and who I brought with me. Every time we went into the dressing room, she was hyping me up and asking me personal questions, while sharing her personal stories, which immediately made me feel comfortable. It was a 10/10 experience and I will totally recommend this place to others:) thank you for helping me get excited for my wedding day and helping me find my dream dress! I look forward to coming back for try-ons, fittings, etc!

I absolutely LOVED my experience at Renee Austin, as did my mother, MIL, and sister. Mia was so knowledgable on all of the dress styles and was very warm & friendly, making my experience one I'll never forget. I was nervous going into the appointment as I hadn't sent them any inspo pics, but all I had to do was show Mia upon arriving and BOOM, she pulled a dress that was almost identical plus several other similar and beautiful options! She helped me find my dream dress and I'm forever grateful. Additionally, she was super respectful and conscious of the price we desired to pay. I also loved the setup of the Renee Austin store and felt like an absolute princess the entire time!!

My consultant Dre (Ondrea) was fantastic! She is down to earth, she is real and she is extremely knowledgeable. She made the appointment so easy and care free and was a big support!
Angela from Grand Rapids
on 06/27/2023
I had a great experience with Ondrea at Renee Austin. This was my first store, and I had a budget I wanted to stay under. Dre was great at listening to my style wants and needs, and pulling and adjusting dresses for me to try and help narrow down my preference. She went above and beyond in making me feel comfortable being picky, and even made an extra trip to the store for me to buy my dress later on in the day. Highly recommend!
Leigha H. from Grand Rapids

Mia was wonderful helping me find my wedding dress. I was on a tight time frame to find a dress and she made the process so easy and fun. She took into consideration all the details I was looking for in a dress and also kept in mind my budget. Out of all the dresses I tried on that day, including 3 other bridal shops, she made my experience special and I couldn't have asked for a better stylist.

Mia picked out my dream dress. I came in with a specific vision and she found the exact gown I was imagining. She made me feel very comfortable during the whole process, which made for a stress free, fun environment! Thank you Mia and Renee Austin Wedding!
Kristin Stuut from Grand Rapids

I visited a couple months ago, the second dress my consultant found, was the one! She wanted to know details about my big day, down even to how the lighting is, to envision a perfect dress for me, and she NAILED IT. Everyone was so friendly, helpful, and made me feel so confident and comfortable. We had a couple other appointments for the day, but following leaving Renee Austin, my family and I had an awful experience at a bigger named bridal store in GR. But, it just made the amazing impression on us from Renee, a whole lot stronger! If I were ever to get married again, hopefully I won’t lol, I would 100% go to Renee Austin again! Thank you thank you thank you for making it such a wonderful experience for me.

The best experience I had while dress shopping. Eliza is hands down the best. I was nervous I wouldn't find anything after shopping previously elsewhere and finding nothing. She helped make the entire experience welcoming and helped build confidence in the dress I chose.

I had the BEST experience finding my dress at Renee Austin! All the staff was so welcoming, and my consultant, Ondrea, was so knowledgable and helped me find what I didn't even know I was looking for. I will be recommending Renee Austin to everyone I know!

I found my dress at Renee Austin after shopping for a very long time. I kept coming back to a dress at RA and Mia supported me through potential styling and alteration options. Ultimately, I narrowed it down to 2 options and Mia encouraged me to choose the right dress for me, whether it was the dress at her shop or not. After all was said and done, the dress at RA felt right and I am so grateful to them for all of her patience and guidance.
Courtney from Mt. Pleasant, Mi

I couldn’t have dreamed of a better experience! As a first time bride it can be difficult knowing where to start, however my stylist Mia understood that and created a calm yet exciting experience. She is knowledgeable in styles, designers and fabrics that will cater to different body types. Since Renee Austin is by appointment only, it creates a more personable atmosphere without bumping into other guests. Highly recommend for all my friends and family!

Paige did an incredible job of helping me feel comfortable and confident in all the gowns she selected for me. She did a great job at listening to my story and recognizing what gowns would be appropriate for my venue and a good match for my personality. She helped me narrow them down and knew exactly the right things to pull. I had a great experience that felt intimate and insightful.
