I did not have an appointment, but I had just ordered my stationary from paperbuzz in North Hills and noticed this business. I understand that they only take appointments, so I walked in to see how to schedule one for the next week. Since it was hot, and since I don't need to impress anyone (I did leave Junior High in Junior High, afterall), I was wearing running shorts and a t-shirt with tennis shoes. The 20 year old who spoke with me said, "What is your budget... because I need you to know before I set up this appointment that these dresses start at $2,000." Well, honey, I am the daugther of a radiologist and I am marrying a lawyer, but YOU wouldn't know that you shouldn't judge people by the way they look. I so badly wanted to walk in with the dress I ended up getting to say, "you work on commission, right? Big mistake. Big."
So there you go. I was raised with manners, and I wish this employee had been as well.

Traditions by Anna was not originally where I had planned to purchase my wedding gown. Granted, I had an appointment to look around but I didn't see anything that was what I was looking for. That was until I met Jane. She had the experience to look past what was hanging on the racks and could invision the perfect dress! I didn't even want to try on the gown that I ended up picking but once I hide the straps and slid the dress on...my breath was taken! There was my perfect dress that I was going to marry the man of my dreams in!
I found my bridesmaid and flower girl dresses there as well! Every person who works in the store was amazing to myself and the entire wedding party! I had the best experience and made friends while I worked so closely with the staff! Maria, who does the alterations, was exceptional as well! Everyone was so helpful and pleasant to work with! I would highly recommend purchasing a dress for any occassion at Traditions by Anna! Anna is such a great person as well! They can tailor any dress and redesign it to make it the perfect fit! This experience shaped my wedding through the reaction from my groom when the church doors opened to every moment captured by the camera in my spectacular wedding gown!

I went in the other day just to look around at their formal dresses, the door was locked but I know they are by appointment, she still let me in. I was looking at the dresses and she watched my every move. I felt like I was doing something wrong. She was looking me up and down like I wasnt as good as she. I didnt stay long because they didnt have much but I wont be going back just because of how I was treated.

Having checked out most of the wedding gown stores in the triangle area, Anna's is the only one I would recommend. I found a beautiful dress that was exactly what I was looking for.

The staff was incredibly helpful through the whole process. They even arranged my fittings to accommodate my crazy schedule (at the time I was living in northern Virgina and taking my 3rd year law school exams, so I was pretty inflexible... and they were incredibly understanding about it!)

I ended up getting all my accessories through Anna too (necklace, hairpiece, and earrings) -- the staff even allowed me to custom design my earrings so that I could have exactly what I wanted.

I cannot say enough positive things about my experience with Traditions by Anna. If you are looking for a wedding dress in the Triangle area, you should absolutely check their store out!!!

Anna Kemp and Traditions by Anna made my wedding experience go so smoothly! Everyone that worked there were so attentive and nice. They were willing to give their honest opinions and had great advice. We were always invited to trunk shows, and we always felt as though we were the only customers in the store. Maria, the tailor, is amazingly talented. She and everyone else were so professional, yet made us feel welcome. I also bought my bridesmaids dresses there. I was able to custom order my bridesmaids dresses and wedding dress. Everything was beautiful! Buying a wedding dress and going for fittings are one of the most important and memorable parts of getting married. Traditions by Anna made it an unforgettable experience!

Pros: Great Service and the Best Tailor!

My experience at Traditions by Anna exceeded my expectations from start to finish. The boutique is beautiful and the staff was extrememly welcoming from my first trip in. They let me browe the dresses on my own (some boutiques pick them for you), numerous times and were very patient as I tried almost every dress on twice! The staff was extremely knowledgeable about the designers (great great selection of designers) and details of each dress. They were honest and reassuring about each decision. Their prices are very reasonable for both wedding dresses and bridesmaid dresses which I ended up getting here as well which was very nice to get both at one store. I was traveling to town for my appointments and fittings and they could not have been more prompt when I arrived and flexible with my schedule. The dress arrived as scheduled and the alterations were a breeze. Their service was wonderful; pressing both my dress and veil numerous times, working with my bridesmaids, and remaining patient through my indecisive ways. My dress exceeded my expectations....it was perfect! I enjoyed each and every visit to Traditions by Anna. Overall, they made the dress experience for me memorable, stress-free, and fun. I would recommend Traditions by Anna to anyone!

I had a truly fantastic experience at Traditions - I really couldn't have envisioned it going any better. They have a huge collection of gorgeous dresses at any price point, the staff is friendly and patient, and the store is beautiful. They all clearly love their jobs, and I never felt like I was being pushed with a hard sell.

The associate I worked with (Martha - ask for her!) was just perfect! She spent 2 1/2 hours with me at my first visit, where I tried close to 20 dresses on before narrowing it down to 2, and then squeezed me in the next day and spent another 2 hours with me so I could come back to make a final decision! She was patient and encouraging, and had a great eye - she pulled the dress that I'll be wearing on my wedding day! By the time I left on Day 2, I had a dress, a veil, and a hairstyle finalized, and a huge grin on my face! I would recommend them to anyone and everyone.

I just found my dress at Traditions! I am kind of a picky shopper, and both of the ladies that helped me were really friendly and patient. I probably tried on a dozen dresses and lots of different veils (they have great veils too) and I found the most perfect strapless stress and veil. We had a champagne toast with my mom and best friend who were with me which was fun too. Thanks again!! Cindy

I had a great experience with Traditions by Anna. A friend recommended I go there and I found a beautiful gown that I ordered. Even though it took three visits for me to make up my mind, my sales associate was always patient and very helpful and friendly. Highly recommend them for selection, quality, and service.

I had the unfortunate experience of buying my wedding dress at Traditions by Anna. I overlooked the snobby salespeople on the date of my purchase because I really wanted a Priscilla of Boston dress and they are the only place in Raleigh where I could find the one I wanted. Just a few days after my purchase, I learned that I paid about 10% more for this dress than I would have anywhere else, including the Priscilla of Boston stores. As soon as my dress came in, I was informed that I had only one week to pay for the remainder of the dress (I had put half down). When I told them I was coming from out of town and that this would place a burden on me to rearrange my plans to come see the dress, they were extremely rude and did not extend the deadline, which would have resulted in a 15% charge to my account. After rearranging my schedule to accommodate their week deadline, I was dismayed to see that the dress looked different from the sample color I had tried on. I understand that this was not a specific result of anything done by Traditions, but they were extremely rude to me about my issue with the dress, making me feel like I had no choice but to pay for the remainder of the dress, which I did. Finally, I learned that the ONLY type of bustle that they do in house is the French bustle. Since I want an American bustle, I am in the position of having to find a seamstress on my own and will thus not be able to take advantage of the two pressings and storage that I had factored into advantages of buying with Traditions.

In short, this shop is overpriced, has snobby salespeople, will not work with you, and has unreasonable payment policies. Thanks to them, I will be walking down the aisle in a dress that I paid too much of my hard earned money for and that I do not completely love. Save yourself some heartache and do not go here.

I went into Traditions expecting a very pleasant experience but unfortunately I was disappointed with my time spent there. I am in the market for a dress within the $1000-$2000 range and was told that they "just don't carry many of those kinds of dresses" as if $2000 is only a few pennies to throw around. I understand that there are other people out there who will shop there and spend over $5000 on their dress, but no other customers were in the store at the time and you would've thought she didn't want the commission.

Also, the no photography policy is rather pointless because after telling me I couldn't take a picture to show my mom, she told me that I could go online and find it anyways.

Her attitude was down-right rude and far from enthusiastic. No cheerful questions about when I got engaged or what I was envisioning for my dress, and definitely no smile upon her face- which I find odd for a bridal salon.

I will not be buying my dress from Traditions. Thanks for making it a super easy choice!
