I can not say enough wonderful things about The English Department!!! The dresses are all beautifully crafted and absolutely dreamy, Elizabeth Dye is so talented! The store design is lovely with globe lights (j'adore) and other gorgeous decorations. I had such a great experience and found my dream dress there!!

Also, the customer service was incredible and Rebecca was so understanding and helpful. This was the first bridal boutique that I went to when I started by gown search and it was so far above in quality and service compared to any other bridal store in Portland! If you are looking for an incredible wedding dress, I highly recommend that you start here!

The service at this store has been mixed: on one occasion, I was ignored as another bride was helped extensively (neither of us had an appointment and I got there first). The other big problem is that the sample dresses are in sizes 0-6, and good luck if you can't fit into that. They had said that you could still somewhat get them on and see what the dress would look like in your size, but that wasn't true.
The salesperson then ordered some dresses to try on in larger sizes, but they were random pieces and not any of the ones I was interested in. i finally decided i was uncomfortable ordering a dress that I had no idea would fit or be flattering.

The Dresses at the English Department are pretty, so pretty in fact I bought two and neither one of them fit, and one even makes me look a little trampy. Another warning you are also unable to return them a little detail they leave out when you order them.

I bought two dresses at the English Department for weddings this summer. After I specifically had one request and one request only don't make me look like a whore in my best friends wedding. Well I got a dress that did just that. The front slit is about 5 inches lower than what they told me and the dress is too tight. I didn't wear it and had to buy a new dress for the wedding. Thank god for a flexible bride. I called the English Department back and their response was having it taken out, and they would not take it back because supposedly they are made to order.

I just got my dress for the next wedding once again the dress is too tight. Even though they took my measurements and I specifically blew out my stomach to make sure it would fit, and I have lost 10 lbs since my original measurements but nope too tight.

As for their insightful solution to take it out. The seams are too small to take out, you get stuff taken in not out. So thanks to the English Department I now own $600 worth of too little fabric.
