Cary >Gorgeous Gowns and Wedding Dresses
Okay so this is a couple years later than most comments,But I enjoyed the store.
Th staff is not going to KISS your butt and be phony like some of the Bridal Boutiques. Come on you're looking for your wedding gown (in some cases) and you don't need someone to help you with every step during that process. If you do I feel sorry for you.
Seriously, go into the store not expecting anything. Yes, do so, but the sales associates ARE there to help you out. Judy was wonderful. She was real, not phony and honest.
For all of you out there do NOT rule that place out. Especially if you want to save some $. If you like the idea of recycled dresses, giving back to a small independent store, enjoy consignment anyway....try this store out.
One more thing, they do not just carry used dresses....they have some dresses with the tags still on. The dress i bought was new and never used. Someone bought it and nerved used it and consigned it. So what? You're getting married this one time and going to wear the dress for what...6 hours?
this shop is a great find!.
After many long days of shopping, my daughter found the wedding gown of her dreams - then got it home and decided it needed a make-over! So she went to the big Bridal Exposition for the purpose of finding a seamstress experienced enough to take on this daunting task - and found Judy Reeder, who's affiliated with this shop.
Judy was wonderful, and re-worked the gown to meet the NEW requirements of my daughter: removing straps, changing the neckline, changing the back, and making it into a lace-up gown - as well as the usual - taking it in as wedding nerves took off pounds, altering the hem, adding cups to the bodice, and a very clever (I won't give away her secrets) bustle!
I came down from NY to Cary for much of this process, and it was in this shop that we eventually found the gown that I would wear to my only daughter's wedding. Frankly, I wasn't aware at the time that most of the shop was consignment, but being a big eBay shopper, and enjoying the excitement of the hunt, that didn't present a problem for me. My son will be getting married in another 10 weeks, and I just may have to get myself back down to Cary to find another gown for his wedding!
Judy's prices and expertise were such that I actually brought items with me from NY to have her alter, as I have been unable to find anyone in our suburban area who can beat her talent or her prices!!!
BTW - the wedding was yesterday, and the bride was absolutely stunning! Thank you, Judy!
Worst wedding dress shopping experience!.
I have been shopping for my wedding dress for almost 4 weeks and have been to various wedding salons and this was by far the worst! I wish I had read the reviews and I would not have wasted my time.
When my mother and I arrived at the salon, we walked in and the owner at the front desk just stared at us, she did not offer a hello or ask if she could help. Finally one of the staff let us know the lay out of the store and offered a dressing room. When I started trying gowns on they were laying on the floor in the dressing room (not hung up) and the staff just stood around and did not offer help in clipping the dresses for size or any information on the particular dresses. I wanted to see how a veil would look with the gowns but the ones they offered were laying in piles on the floor and were dirty and ripped.
Trying on wedding gowns, you should feel like the store is taking care of you and helping you through the process. I felt like this store was trying to scam brides! My mother and I wanted to take pictures of me in the gowns so we could remember them later- you CAN NOT do this. Also, they have cut out all tags and will not tell you who designed any of the wedding gowns you try on. They will only tell you after you order one!!?? You can not write down dress styles or any information to take from the store and dress prices are scratched out on tages and new prices written next to them. There is totally something wrong with a store that will not tell you all the information on a gown before ordering it. I ended up trying on a dress that I REALLY liked but would NEVER give this store my business.
Stay away from this store!! The owner was biting and rude to employees and staff while we were there. The whole experience is one that any bride would want to forget!
What a Bargain!. This shop makes elegance affordable!! I don't know about you, but I only wear a formal gown once or twice, and the prices for new gowns are outrageous............I have bought my last three dresses at Gorgeous Gowns and people have raved about the gown I was wearing. Twice it was for a Christmas party - same time of year I really need all the extra money I have for gifts, donations, etc...I was able to wear something that made me feel spectacular for a fraction of the usual cost. And get this, you can take your dress back and re-consign it! If you're a bargain hunter, you will LOVE this place!!!! It's also a beautiful shop and the service was friendly and professional. TWO THUMBS UP!!
Top Notch Products and Service!. What a wonderful place do to business! The owner, Nancy, made me feel like I knew her my whole life. She is such a pleasant person to work with. I couldn't get myself to leave, as there were so many beautiful things to look at. She offers such a wide array of products and services. Check out her beautiful wedding pictures she has photographed while there ....such a creative mind. The staff was so accommodating, and her gowns are absolutely gorgeous. She has sure given her store the right name. You will be more than pleased at her fairness and professionalism. I will be back again and again!
GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE.
The owner Nancy did my wedding photograph and we are very pleased with them.
I also use her store when I need something formal, Nancy makes sure it is the right fit for me, she is very honest. Her prices are very affordable for any pocket.. Her beautiful dresses make me feel like a million dollars lady!
A great shop with great people. I used Nancy for our wedding photos and were very pleased with the quality of the photos as well as the fact that Nancy went the extra mile for us. We had talked with numerous photographers and were so happy we chose Nancy and her team. ... They were great... she couldn't have done a better job. I also have gone to her shop many times and am always impressed with the service and atmosphere.
BEWARE YOUR EXPERIENCE HERE WILL MAKE YOU SICK. Do not take your items here to sell as you are sure to be SCREWED. GG does not honor their contracts, they do not adhear to their own written terms. You are better off donating your items and claiming a tax write off or keeping your items, they are worth more than the pennies you will receive. And by the way GG will feel free to lower the selling price and not notify you, so BEWARE no matter how nice they appear.
Disappointed. We were disappointed by the quality of workmanship in our photos, as well as the overall professionalism of the staff.
