Shopping for my wedding dress was so enjoyable and stress free... and I know that's because of Michelle's wonderful help and the wide variety of dresses at Demetrios Bride at the Irvine Spectrum!
I was honestly hesitant to begin dress shopping because I imagined being overwhelmed by all the choices and pressured to make a decision right away. Luckily, that was not my experience at all! Although I'm not a bride who knew exactly what she wanted, Michelle listened to me describe my style and likes/dislikes, and helped me select some dresses to try. Her no pressure style allowed me to honestly evaluate what I liked about each dress and what I wanted for my big day.
Surprisingly it only took trying on four dresses for me to find a fantastic dress... in fact, I found two! Since two dresses weren't in my budget, I knew I had a tough decision ahead of me. But, Michelle graciously allowed me to make another appointment a week later, at which time I brought my parents with me. This gave time to think about which dress I liked most and which I truly pictured myself in on my wedding day.... and when I walked back into the store, I knew exactly which of the two dresses was my perfect dress!
Since ordering my wedding dress, Michelle has also helped my bridesmaids select their dresses, which was also such an easy process - the store has a fantastic selection of bridesmaid dresses and designers.
I highly recommend that every bride and bridesmaid check out Demetrios Bride at the Irvine Spectrum - and ask for Michelle!
Rosa really helps with finding and creating the dress of your dreams. The only con is that in order to do so it ends up costing alot more to make changes to a dress (color of fabric etc) even though they say its going to be made from scratch based on my measurements, which I didn't understand
I had Kinga as my consultant and she was excellent! She really listened to what I wanted and picked the perfect dress for me in my budget. I would highly recommend her and the team at Demetrios for your bridal needs!
I am one of three sisters and the last to get married!! Both of my sisters purchased dresses at this location! So, Of course I was going to do the same. My little sister was coming in from Seattle to share this special moment with me. To my surprise they were fully booked in advance. I told them my concern and they were very accommodating and squeezed me in! I was excited to hear that Bonnie was going to dress me as she dressed both of my sisters. She was very fast, efficient and understanding! I am happy to say that I purchased at this location in Schaumburg!! One remark only...bring water with you! They didn't have any!!! I was not prepared and I was in and out of the dresses and got very hot!!
I was a little skeptical to visit Brides by Demetrios, based on some negative reviews online. But I visited Brides by Demetrios over Labor Day weekend with a specific dress in mind that I wanted to try on, thinking this was â€śthe oneâ€ť after trying on countless other dresses at other stores. My consultant Lori listened to my vision and pulled some dresses she thought Iâ€™d like. She was spot on right away with her picks, which really impressed me since I had not had anyone â€śgetâ€ť what I was looking for at any other store. When I tried on the dress I had in mind, it was not at all what I had pictured and I was really disappointed. Lori pulled some other dresses to see if any of those would lift my spirits and be what I was looking for, but they were not. I explained to Lori why I was so disappointed with the dress I went in wanting to try on. I explained to her that the color of the beading looked totally different in the pictures online. She sent me out to the sales floor to browse some more with my mom and MOH while she did some research online. She discovered that the dress shown online is actually the ivory and not the white that I had tried on. She pulled the ivory and that was IT.
Lori was fantastic to work with and the store itself had such a wide variety of gowns that any bride would feel beautiful in. I highly recommend Brides by Demetrios and Lori.
I recently tried on dresses, Demetrios was my first time trying on and I fell in love with the first dress. I was hesitant about buying the first dress I tried on but Demetrios was not pushy at all they were very understanding and helpful in my decision. The next day I went back to the store to purchase my dress! Great dress shopping experience.
I had Alyssa help me and she was helpful and dealt with my indecisiveness. When my mom and I told her a budget she was respectful and stuck to that. She let me try on the dress I wasn't sure about a few times and look at every angle. My bridesmaids got there dresses here too and they were happy to help every step of the way.
My wedding dress is absolutely phenominal! I love the way i light up in this dress, and it feels amazing. The staff at Demetrios in St. Louis, Maryland Heights are awesome! Thank you from the bottom of my heart! Can't wait until my fiance see's me in it... He's gonna love it!
I worked with Bonnie and she was very helpful! I found my dress right away without even having an appointment (it was a Friday afternoon) when I wasn't even planning on dress shopping. I fell in love with my dress as soon as I put it on. Bonnie helped find other dresses that fit my style and my body and they all looked wonderful! I then bought my dress and veil when Brides by Demetrios was having a Labor Day weekend sale!
Lanae could not have made our experience any more pleasant. She devoted 100% of her attention to my daughter and our experience.
LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE my dress, and came in REALLY early!
I bought my wedding gown from Demetrios. My stylist was very helpful and let me try on many dresses until I found the right one (I was there for at least 2 hours!). I brought in a few pictures, but my consultant showed me the "sister" dress of one that I really liked. They were very similar, but there was something special about the sister dress. The only problem was that I would have to buy the sample gown because this dress was discontinued. They ended up offering me 20% off my dress if I bought it that day and also because it was a sample. I wanted to take the night to think about it but they were insistent that I should buy the dress now because it was a sample and that the discount was only good for today. I felt a little bit pressured to buy the dress, but in the end, I realized that this dress was perfect and I couldn't let it go.

Great quality, fantastic customer service and great pricing!!
I just stopped here on a whim with a friend. I know most bridal boutiques have you make appointments, but I was able to try on a few dresses with no appointment. The salesladies were really nice and encouraging. Even though I don't think I'll get my dress here (too pricey), I had to give them a review for being much more customer-service oriented than other local boutiques.
I went on a whim to look and see if there was anything I liked. I had tried on and looked at so many dresses. I was by myself and just trying on what I thought I wanted. I showed them a picture of a dress that I had fallen in love with online. They said they had one similar. I put the dress on and turned around to look in the mirror. I started crying and I knew instantly that it was "THE" dress. The staff there were all fantastic and continue to be. I am so glad I went in there that day!

I found my perfect wedding gown here!! Demetrios has such beautiful dresses!!
I absolutely love my reception dress that I found here!
Was able to find my wedding gown on my first trip out! I was adamant about finding a dress that was NOT white and Daisy was able to help me find a dress in my dream color AND helped make the price work for me. She suggested I try a couple more traditional options to be sure, but was not pushy in any way about forcing me towards a more expensive or more "typical" dress. She even helped me look at bridesmaids dresses as possible options for my bridal gown if I couldn't find the color I wanted.
Absolutely love them! they have great service, they are friendly, and I LOOOOVVVVEEEE my dress!!!!
I found my beautiful, perfect dream dress at brides by demetrios, however the customer service was not quite as perfect. They were inconsistent with the date that my dress would be coming in (originally they said October, then December, then January. The dress did arrive in November to my happy surprise, but the information they provided up to that point was pretty vague). I found Laura to be very hot and cold as a sales person, she hugged me like an old friend whenever I came in and called me sweetie and then would be extremely cold whenever I expressed a concern about my dress(or when I mentioned that I would not be purchasing my bridesmaid dresses with them). Lastly, I can't even count how many times Laura would call me for every sale they had inviting me to come back and buy my veil or bridesmaid dresses, even though I told her I would not be needing those things multiple times. It's hard to rate Brides by Demetrios because while I would not return to purchase anything in the future, I did find my dress that I am so happy with and that is made very well. I had requested the manufacturer to remove the beaded belt and put in covered buttons over the back zipper, and that was exactly what I received.
