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.

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.

Eliza was amazing! Felt like a knowledgeable, funny, sweet bestie helping me try on gorgeous dresses. She made me feel confident in every dress I was in, and I felt so extremely comfortable with her. Eliza is your girl !!! I also love how the boutique gave such a cozy vibe so you felt like the only bride in the room.

Mia was amazing! I’m an older bride and have a curvy body, she fit me perfectly. Not just with the dress that I chose, but with every dress. She always had a calm, knowledgeable vibe. Wonderful experience, far exceeded every other shop that I visited. I wish I could get all of my clothes chosen and fitted by Mia

Jenn and Mia have been absolutely wonderful to work with. So supportive, knowledgeable, and kind. I felt so empowered at my appointments and they really made the experience so fun.

WOW! A stunning selection of dresses and just as great of service! My consultant Eliza was amazing, she asked insightful questions to help find and guide me to my dream dress without making me feel pressured or stressed, she helped me navigate strong family opinions, and made my experience so much fun! I went to one other shop and it was nowhere near the same quality or experience. Renee Austin will be my first suggestion to all future brides!

Thank you so much for everything! I had just the best experience at Renee Austin, I can’t recommend you enough. Jenn was so amazing- so patient with me and genuinely enthusiastic to help me find the perfect dress. I had zero idea of what I wanted or what I was doing, but Jenn was so knowledgeable and helpful and I absolutely love my dress she helped me find! I am so grateful for everything everyone at Renee Austin has done to help me prepare for my big day. Thank you so much!

Paige was a joy to work with. She understood the assignment! She picked out a variety of dresses that incorporated my preferences and wishes. She encouraged me to step out of my comfort zone to try new things that ended up being one of the top picks.

Paige was the most helpful and kind person for this experience. She made it not stressful and made us all feel comfortable. I felt Like i could take my time and decide and not feel pressured to pick a dress right then and there. I tried on the most beautiful dresses and had a great time!

I had Jenn help me pick out my dress. She was so nice and personable and made me feel like a Queen. I was nervous and stressed and it all lifted away with her help! She was an expert in gown designs. I will recommend Renee Austin to others and especially that they go see Jenn if they can!

I had such an amazing experience at Renee Austin! Ondrea saw my inspiration photos and pulled so many dresses that I loved which made it very hard to narrow it down to one. I have been to a few other salons around Michigan and none compared to this one! I can't wait to wear my dream dress in October. Thank you so so much!!

I had a wonderful experience working with Paige. She made me feel beautiful and heard as a stylist. The selection you had was great for what I was was looking for and I would definitely recommend all my friends and family to go to Renee Austin and work with Paige.

Such an incredible customer service experience I cannot recommend them enough. They were super helpful along the way with making sure my entire party coming in for my fitting was comfortable, they brought out dresses I had liked on their website for me to try on, and made sure I was able to pick whatever I wanted while being courteous and informing me able all the details and pricing of the dresses. 15/10 experience with Mia:)
Julianne Day from GRAND RAPIDS
on 02/20/2023
This experience was amazing. I walked into my appointment convinced I wouldn't find anything in my budget. But Mia made it happen, after a quick chat and glance at my styles of interest. I walked out with a dress that checked ALL my style boxes and at a price I could barely believe. I'd urge any bride to check out Renee Austin!

My entire experience was unlike any other bridal shop I have been to thus far. Eliza was personal, fun and vibrant, listened well and guided me well, and was able to hand select dresses that fit my vision. It was the most intimate and fun experience!

I loved everything about my experience at Renee Austin Wedding! Paige was so kind, efficient and helpful, and made the entire trying on process go so smoothly. I would recommend any bride check out this salon when hunting for their perfect dress!

The ladies working from front desk to our consultant were friendly, welcoming, and kind. This experience can make me feel stressed, pressured, and vulnerable, and yet the staff at Renee Austin approaches it kindhearted and with ease.

I worked with Eliza tonight. She was absolutely phenomenal. She spent time getting to know me as the bride and what the wedding will be like. She listened to some of my other experiences dress shopping and used all of those details to choose dresses that were perfect for me. I have been to four other shops looking for dresses, and none of them compared to the experience I had with Eliza. She chose the absolute perfect dress for me and was so patient as I asked lots of questions. I am so thankful that she was helping me. Beautiful dresses and wonderful experience!

Oh my gosh, such a great appointment! Eliza helped me find my dress and she was amazing. Very helpful, very honest, and the first dress she pulled was the one I ended up getting! Thank you Eliza for being so awesome.

I cannot say enough good things about my experience at RA, especially due to Mia. She consistently listened to the vision I had, and would sometimes tweak minor details about the dress to help me understand what I wanted, which in turn taught me what I liked! Mia was kind and fun to work with; the boutique was clean, friendly, and had plenty of options. So happy I purchased my dress from them!

I had the best experience at Renee Austin! My bridal consultant Paige was absolutely fantastic! She was such a pro and made the experience exceptional! She was able to listen to my style and picked dresses that matched this perfectly! So happy I came to Renee Austin and would highly recommend!
Madison from Renee Austin

I had a wonderful experience at Renee Austin! I felt like the bridal consultant I had truly cared about me finding my dream dress, rather than just trying to make a sale. The environment was fun, the staff was so kind, and the dresses were beautiful! I would highly recommend anyone looking for a positive wedding dress shopping experience to go to Renee Austin :)

So happy to work with Paige and find my perfect dress! As a more plus size bride, I was actually nervous for this part of the planning process, but I couldn’t be happier with how everything worked out. I was so well taken care of and supported through the entire process and never felt uncomfortable. What a beautiful place to be. Thank you!!

I bought my dress yesterday from Renee Austin in Grand Rapids. Mia Kelley was my consultant and she couldn’t have been more helpful and comforting. For being a small shop, they have quite a wide variety of dresses to try on. The store is clean, they have a perfect set up for changing, and showing off the dresses you are trying on. My friends and I had a great time and we are so glad I found the one!
Desiree Kaiser from Grand Rapids

The staff at Rene Austin was, hands down, the most welcoming, knowledgeable, and efficient I had the pleasure of meeting with during my whirlwind trip through a variety of bridal shops in the Grand Rapids area. They immediately welcomed me in when I showed up for my appointment time (not something that has happened at every shop I have visited and the immediate difference in the atmosphere and my overall visit was noticeable) and the store front was beautiful and smelled like a bit of heaven. Additionally, I loved the setup with the various mirrors and dressing rooms and a place for everyone to sit. Mostly, however, what I was really impressed with was how in just a short little conversation, my style was so accurately guessed and the bridal consultant (Paige) presented me with several dresses that took my breath away, including one that was so unique and beautiful that I fell a little in love with it. Out of all of the bridal shops that I visited while searching for my perfect dress, Rene Austin was definitely the best.

I cannot say enough good things about Renee Austin Wedding!!! Eliza was so attentive and listened to each critique I had about different dresses and finally led me to my DREAM dress. Everyone I brought with me shopping absolutely loved her and her energy - she truly made it such a fun experience! And, when I went to pick my wedding dress up, Mia was so sweet and helpful. I couldn't recommend Renee Austin Wedding enough if you're looking for your dream wedding dress!!!

Renee Austin was a wonderful experience! Paige was super kind, outgoing, attentive, and very in touch with what I was wanting! Not only was she accommodating towards me, she was super personable to my friends and family. Not only did I go there once but twice and had Paige both times!
