Great Experience...Found my dream dress! – I dont know how anyone could write a bad review for this place because I had a great experience at Paradise Bridals. I don't live close and was visiting my Aunt in the area. She suggested we stop in just to try some dresses on and see what I liked. As soon as we got there we were greeted and everyone was so nice. It turned out that you didn't have the style dress I was looking for. However Rosalie took the time to go on the computer to see exactly what I liked. Rosalie along with Cherise and Maria pulled out similar dresses to show me. Cherise and Maria were amazing! They made me feel so comfortable and had so much patience from start to finish. They both went all over the store finding dresses, headpieces and veils I would like. They made every bride in there feel special and as if they were the only woman in the room. Customer service in your store is by far the best I have come across in the retail industry. I actually purchased my wedding dress right then and there without even going to another store to look around. There are so many Bridal places in Nassau county I could have went to. The reason I chose to pick a place so far from me is because of Cherise, Maria and the rest of the staff. It's well worth my 50 min drive...When the store was supposed to be closing Rosalie took extra time to show my mother some Mother of the Bride dresses and make her feel special also. I'm a makeup artist and I can assure you I will be recommending Paradise Bridal to all my clients and friends in the future! Thank you for making such a special day even more special.
Bridesmaids Dresses are GIGANTIC!!! – Reviewing this as a bridesmaid ....All of the bridesmaid dresses came in WAY bigger than we ordered. My dress was 4 sizes larger than the one I put down. Maybe they anticipated that I would put on 100 lbs in 6 months, who knows? Even the bra cups don't fit. The tailor actually laughed when i brought the dress in to be altered and asked me if I ordered the right size. And speaking of the tailor, you won't be able to get an appointment with Paradise's tailor unless you can get there on a weekday. For those of us that work 9-5 and have to travel to get there, it can be pretty difficult. So instead I have to pay to have it altered near my house in Queens, and it's not cheap. Another bridesmaid in the party is having it done through Paradise, and is not getting the dress back until 3DAYS before the wedding. Hopefully it's perfect when she gets it back or she's screwed. Not sure if they are any better with the bridal gowns, but my bride's wedding day is Nov 12th and she still doesn't have her dress. I know I'm not using them when I get married, that's for sure.
Nice Experience – I was so excited when I went to Paradise Bridals to try on bridal gowns. I couldn
NOT AS BAD AS EVERYONE MAKES IT SEEM... – As a bridesmaid at my cousin's wedding, I must say, YES I did have somewhat of an unsuitable experience when I went to pick up my dress and it was not ironed. The lady at the desk apologized and had my dress ironed in no time. I was not going to return to this store but then when I went to a bridal expo I found myself making an appointment to come in and try on dresses there. They offered a free veil and I fell for it... lol
The lady that helped me was very nice and picked out a lot of dresses that complimented my body type and I fell in love with my wedding gown. My bridesmaids and my mom also received a nice discount. At fitting time the seamstress was a little rough but all I cared about was getting my dress done right. My second appointment was better; the seamstress was less stressed and therefore very kind. My dress fit perfect!!!
Making my pickup appointment, I made sure the lady at the desk knew who I was and to also make sure my dress was ironed and ready to go. When I was ready to head out of the house to pick up my dress I remembered to call and make sure the dress was done and the answer was "YES"...
I always say to myself, not everything is as bad as it appears. I was a happy bride and I was satisfied and got over my fear of giving people a second chance. To all the brides out there reading this, We've all had awesome times... and some, well, not so great ones, but at the end, what matters is that you were able to get up to that altar in your dream dress and you still got married!
Happy Bride – I am not one for posting reviews, however I was approached by my friend's sister who asked where I got my gown. When I said Paradise - she said OMG, have you seen their reviews?? So I decided to check them out and after reading a few, I felt I needed to post my story. I've been to many bridal expos and at the last one I was at (Giorgios), I was offered a discount to go in and take a look at their gowns. From the minute I walked in, I felt like l've known my consultant for years. She was so nice and helpful...like I was shopping with a close friend. After purchasing my dress that day, I came back several times to look at bridesmaids and tuxedos and have always had a great experience. That's why I'm shocked to read all the negativity. I'm going back next week for my second fitting and I'm sure I'll be just as happy then.
MISERABLE EXCUSE FOR A BUSINESS – Im cracking up at the gushing review below mine... really? A living fairytale?! A bit over the top you think? Staff memebers must be posting reviews. This "fairytale" salon of dreams and rainbows didn't call me when my gown arrived,it was sitting there for weeks. They would not let me see the gown, lied about alterations and I was there getting alterations up until the date of my wedding. Management has major attitude problems. They were the only stressful part of my wedding.
Does anyone else find it strange that there are so many one star reviews and 5 star reviews and barely any mid-range reviews? hmmm
The Epitome of a Bridal Experience! – From the moment we walked into Paradise Bridal, my daughter felt as if she were the only bride in the world! . The experience was "living" a fairytale from getting the dress of her dreams, to having her dress personalized even more. Veils and accessories complemented the "dramatic" look my daughter envisioned since she was a very little girl. The bridal consultants were knowledgeable and sincerely committed to making her, her bridal party, mother of the groom, and me (mother of the bride) 100% pleased with each visit. With work schedules of the bridal party so incredibly challenging to make appointments, every single person was accommodated with dates and times that were so very much appreciated. The recommendations for Paradise Bridal were many and most definitely expressed the same sentiments.( SEE a comment made by one of my friends, one of many who recommended Paradise Bridal. she insisted on responding to my words. Her comment is under my account name.) The master seamstresses worked with great perfection and detail to have the dresses "custom" quality. It is so evident in attitude and a family type relationship, that each person working at Paradise loves what he or she does every single day. Reviewing Paradise Bridal is a pleasure for me, and I found myself compelled to share our wonderful, stressfree experiences. It is the only bridal salon and elegant attire business that I would strongly urge you to visit. See it for yourself and trust it for its reputation of excellence, a reputation so well-deserved and earned for so many, many years.
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND PARADISE BRIDALS!! – I was recommended by my co-worker to visit Paradise Bridals for my wedding gown. I live in Bayside and Patchogue is a bit a drive for me, but I went anyways. I visited at least 15 bridal salons in the tri-state area and did not find
SHADY BUSINESS!!! – Funny how the last few postive reviews were from people who have just oredered gowns... My oredering experience was fine... the fun began after my dress came in. My dress was ordered in JUNE... didnt arrive for EIGHT months... they would not let me see it until 4 weeks before the wedding. If would have be nice to be able to have seen the gown, because then we would have noticed they ordered the WRONG GOWN in the WRONG SIZE. At this point it was too late to re-order the gown. They never apologized... only said the woman who measured me made mistakes alot because she was old... really? There were many other issues, to many to type. Trust me... stay away. If you insist on using them lie about your wedding date or you will be in the shop getting alterations the night before your wedding.
Great experience!!! – Just wanted to comment on a great experience at Paradise Bridals. Purchased my daughters sweet 16 gown about seven months ago at Paradise Bridals. I was a little hesitant, but it was my daughters favorite and there was no way I was going to get away without getting this gown for her. The Whole experience was wonderful. Keep in mind that Paradise bridals is a very busy store. If you schedule a fitting at 6pm you are going to have to wait a little. Luckily my daughtetr did not need a lot of alterations and we went to two fittings. Waited about fifteen minutes each time. Everyone was nice and welcoming and thanked us for being patient. My daughter was very happy with her gown, and I am happy to say her party was beautiful. She received many compliments on her gown. I would recommend Paradise Bridals to anyone having a Sweet 16.
