I had a very pleasant experience at Occasions. Yes, it is small, yes there is only one mirror, but I had no problem with that - I guess I don't need to be treated like a Queen. I found the perfect wedding gown, reasonbly priced, by a

I was Strongly recommended to Occasions Bridal in Bethel CTwhen buying my MOG dress last year. Since having a bad experience with a bridal shop a few years ago, this route was clearly not the way I wanted to go this time. WOW!! So glad I changed my mind. My shopping experience was A+++++. Gail and her daughter were very friendly,attentive,helpful and reassuring. My dress needed to be ordered(mind you it was the middle of April and wedding July 9th). Gail reassured me the dress would be here in time. Gail came through. The dress arrived earlier than expected and her seamstress, Martha, did a beautiful job in custom altering the dress to me. I LOVED my dress.I felt so comfortable all day long and received so many compliments. Did I mention the drive from NY was 1hr and 10 mins. what more can I say. I HIGHLY recommend Occasions Bridal in Bethel CT. Thank you Gail and daughter. See you next time.

I made the huge mistake of shopping here for my mother-of-the bride dress for my daughter's wedding. They ordered the dress 2 sizes too large. The salesperson who gave me the dress when it came in assured me it would be no big deal to get it altered properly. I went to the seamstress they refer customers to; her shop is across the street. What a nightmare. I made multiple trips to her shop and she was never, ever, able to get it right. The final straw was when she gave me the dress with the zipper installed so that one side was 1/4 inch higher than the other. That's just the tip of the iceberg, she really butchered the dress. I ended up finding a different seamstress who miraculously repaired all of the damage just in time for the wedding. I would never, ever shop at this place again; they never should have ordered the dress the way they did, and their seamstress is a hack.

I went with my future daughter in law looking for a particular bridal gown. They said they had something like it but now "the" gown. It was so beautiful but unforturnatly not the "one". We found another gown that turned out to be a top contender. We were there for 2 1/2 hours and never felt rushed or that we were taking too much time. What a wonderful shop! We will be repeat customers.

I found "the dress" at Occasions and it is EVERYTHING I could have hoped for and more. The dress I fell in love with was a strapless Casablanca, but "I wanted sleeves." Gail didn't bat an eye, said we can add them! I will call the designer, tell them what you are looking for and they will make it perfect! Well, Gail was soooooo RIGHT!
The dress is MORE BEAUTIFUL than I could have ever imagined. The sleeves look as though they were original to the dress! I don't know how I can ever THANK YOU GAIL, you gave me the dress of my dreams. You, and your staff are the BEST! I loved the personal, intimate attention I received, and I would tell everyone I know to come to you. You really cared and understood what I was looking for made my dreams a reality. I will surely send you pictures from the wedding to post so EVERY Bride can see what an AMAZING Shop you have. THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART! Jean

This was THE WORST experience at any bridal shop you could imagine! Not only was I tripping over another bride, even though I had an appointment, but then I felt rushed through trying on various gowns. The woman who "helped" me didn't seem to care and kept almost ripping gowns off of me as soon as I tried them on. Many of the gowns I never got to see in the mirror! On top of that, I am very pale and was told to get a tan so that the coloring of the dress would look better on me. I tried to explain that getting a tan is impossible for me (not to mention extremely bad for your health) and got even more angry. It made it impossible to shop there! If you want the experience that every bride deserves, go elsewhere!

Any dress you need without the worry of meeting up with someone in the same dress, then go to Occasions. If you want one on one service with a smile even after trying on dress after dress because they are all so beautiful, then go to Ocasions. We never have to go any place else, my daughter always finds a dress that she loves. The buyer knows what the girls want and she supplies it, tea length or long. We have gone for sweet 16, Jr Prom and Prom. We go We get it and it is done. That is my kind of shop.Patti Fogelstrom

This small shop has a very nice inventory of formal and bridal dresses. For prom dresses it's great because they only carry one dress of each kind so you can be sure no one else will be wearing the same dress as you are.
They are very attentive although their dressing rooms have limited space which means a wait for one if they are busy. It is located on a small square in the center of town and parking is pretty good for downtown.

When shopping for prom, I found a decent selection of dresses in all sorts of sizes, and had someone to help me as I tried them on. While i did nott find a dress, I was able to try some on and take my time as I looked around. The store is small, but its fairly easy to find a dress.

I called ahead from Florida looking for Scala dresses and was told they were open 12/24. I drove 1 1/2 hours to be there at 10, their opening time. She was 45 mins late, missing two other people besides us, who didn't wait more than 1/2 hour. when she finally let us in, I explained who I was and that we were from FL, she apologized, and immediately got on phone--without even directing us to a rack--to UPS and then to a friend to expain her horrible morning. Then a friend of hers came in. They talked for the entire 45 mins we were in the store, including time in the back room, where I had to find her to ask where the dressing room was. "Oh,, you can change in here" she said pointing to the dressing room. Then she opened the curtain and went back to her friend. In the end, I never did find my dress. But her friend kindly informed me, as we walked out the door, that I probably wouldn't be able to find it--because it is last year's model...Nice, Huh? save your time...go somewhere else

Occassions made finding my perfect wedding dress easy! They were so kind and helpful and really wanted me to find the dress of my dreams, which they did. They also offered extremely fair prices and a very nice selection. They will do everything to make your wedding day perfect. The only thing that made me nervous was that they didn't have a tailor on the premises but they recommended someone and it turned out beatifully!

PROS: Personal attention, good prices, nice selection
CONS:
