Please don't trust your day to these people. Our experience was heartbreaking. I'm a huge supporter of local merchants and small businesses so it kills me to potentially hurt one. The rudeness was one thing but their dishonesty literally ruined what should have been a beautiful experience. I pray they never do to another bride what they did to us.

I went to Julie Allen about a week ago, and had a great experience! It was a Thursday, but a holiday...so many schools (and teachers) were off. When I first got there, it was quite crowded, but I was taken into a room and given full attention and help. I have been to many bridal shops, but I felt that finally I was given honest and straight forward feedback. The dress of my dreams is out of my price range, and I was shown many other gorgeous dresses to help alleviate this problem. The owner was actually the person helping me, and she was so patient and attentive. She also encouraged me to view my dress in natural sunlight and allowed us to take some pictures. I am still debating whether or not to splurge on my dream dress, but I want to thank Julie Allen for providing my sister, mother and I such a wonderful experience!

Like most places the time and day of the week that you choose to shop for dresses makes a huge difference in the amount of personal attention and consultation that you get. Went on a Thursday and had a wonderful experience. The owner stayed almost an hour after the store had closed, and was willing to pull as many dresses for me as I wanted. Saturday when I went to make my final decision with my girls it was some what of a different experience they were definitely short staffed but never the less friendly and willing to give me the time I needed to make my decision. I was weary of the size they ordered for me it was much bigger than expected but they went by a measurement chart so it seemed legit.

I have been to several bridal shops in Connecticut and by far, Julie Allen Bridal is the best. They have such an inviting and friendly atmosphere. I was so concerned about looking too curvy because of my hips but they asked me what I was looking for, I told them what I liked and what I didnt like. She picked out the perfect dress for me. Then spent so much time with me trying on dozens of tiaras and actually talked to me like a person not just a sale. I felt so comfortable there and wasnt being pressured at all. They even stayed late to facilitate my needs. By far the best Connecticut has to offer!! So happy to be getting my dress from such a caring and personable shop!

Do not go to Julie Allens!! My family had so many problems there: First off the staff is so rude, whether it was on the phone or in person they had no people skills. When we went for our bridesmaid dress fitting they insisted on ordering a dress for me that was three sizes too big even though the size ten that the had was too big on me they made me order a 14. Ok fine I thought, I'm not going to cause problems for my sisters wedding, they want my money for alterations then they can have it. Then I made my first alteration appointment, I was never told that I would have to come back on the SAME day of the week. Well I am a nurse and happened to go on a Wednesday for my first appointment, I didn't have another Wednesday off and can't take a day off to try on a dress. I called several times to try to find another time to get my second fitting but they would not let me do it any other day so finally two weeks before the wedding i had to just pick my dress up. You know what happens next, it doesn't fit, it's huge, i should have just ordered the 8, i would have saved money and had a dress that fit me for the wedding. I would not recommend this place to ANYONE. oh and when the bride went for her second fitting they forgot to bring in her dress so she had to postpone it a week, and then she couldn't tell if the veil she bought would match, and she needed to know because she only had a short window of time to return the veil, but no apology from julie allens for wasting an hour of the busy brides day (like she doesn't have enough to do planning a wedding)

This store has lots of selection and will suit the needs for tuxedoes, bridal gowns, and bridal party gowns. Apparently, tuxedo rentals here are cheaper than most places. Unfortunately, when I went there to look for a prom dress, there was not much of a selection. Things cannot be bought off of the racks, so time has to be left for ordering.

This is a spacious store has lots to choose from for bridal and formal women's wear. The shopping I have done here is has been primarily for prom dresses, so I cannot speak to the bridal service. However, I can say that they have a tasteful selection of evening dresses. Nothing can be purchased off the rack, so leave time for ordering and fitting.

They have their own parking lot and it is a very convenient shop to get to.
