I bought my dress at a Badgley Mischka trunk show, and the entire experience was great. Malindy and the designer Rep took measurements and arranged to have the dress custom sewn so all I had to do was add a bustle. Such great service!

I purchased my wedding gown from Lindy and Traylor who were both outstanding to work with. I was treated like a queen and the service was impeccable. I had been to several other bridal stores in the Tampa bay area and Malindy Elene's was by far my favorite! I could not have asked for a better experience which continued far past just my wedding date. I have and would continue to recommend this boutique to anyone who values outstanding service and beautiful gowns.??

I went for my final fitting and my bridal gown is so perfect and the service was so amazing, I had to write about it! My Mom bought her gown at this magnificent boutique as well, and she looks fabulous!! We are so excited for the big day!! The owner, Malindy and her staff were so attentive, and in touch with every detail. I would highly recommend anyone to this bridal shop.

I must say, when mae the appointment, the sales girl took lots of time with me, she encouraged me to try on many dresses, which my mother really enjoyed.
I was in a time crunch, so I knew I would have to rush order my dress. And their dresses are expensive. I was given a budget of 5k, the dress I loved was 8k. Th ownerwas drinking, and seemed desperate for a sale, I explaned that had a daytime wedding and that the dress I had chose was too fluff. She wanted to "make a deal", right there on the spot, while I was inthe dress, which didn't zip, and the shoulder straps were hanging.
Well she looked down at my engagement ring, which was 5 carats, and said I could have that floor model for 5k...... It would need major alterations, a cleaning, the jewels were comming off......nasty.
I didn't have the nerve to say how insulted I was, but my mther got me out of the store asap.
The next stop, The dressingRoom, on the same road, much better pricing, a true expeirence.
Don't give up in St.Pete, but give up on this shop.
They called me for days afterwards, until I lied ad said that I purcased another gown, even before I had!!

Pros: lots of name brands

Cons: staff is horrible

From the very beginning of working with this place of business, I was treated poorly. I was grudgingly given an appointment by the person who answered the phone, and upon arrival was treated like dirt.

I ended up going down to Miami to look for my wedding gown. Not working with this establishment was the best decision I've made about my wedding, so far!

The employees and owner of this shop (Malindy Elene Bengston, "Lindy") created so much stress in, and ruined so much of, my wedding planning, actual wedding, and time after my wedding (through me trying to get them to make it right). Shame on them.

Some of the gowns they carry are beautiful (although most are outrageously expensive), but you can find them elsewhere. I wish I had known that before I put the 50% deposit on my gown at this shop; I overlooked a lot of things because I liked the gown so much. It was a huge mistake.

Take your money someplace better. Within a ten-minute drive of this vendor, you can go to the Dressing Room or CC's -- both reputable stores where they treat customers with respect. (I didn't get my gown from CC's, but did shop there for gowns and have shopped there in the past; it was a lovely experience for wedding dress shopping. I did get my bridesmaids' dresses from the Dressing Room; also a lovely experience, feel free to read my previously-posted review on Wedding Wire (I will be posting it on citysearch soon); this review of Malindy Elene will also be posted on Wedding Wire soon).

There are many other shops in the area as well where I'm positive you will get better treatment and a much less expensive, but still very beautiful, well-made gown.

If I could take anything back about planning my wedding, I would NEVER NEVER have purchased my wedding dress at this shop. I would post more details, but am considering my options in addressing what happened with this vendor through other available means. I may revise this post in the future to expand on my story with this vendor and the ultimate result.

My advice: whatever you do, don't shop here.

EDIT: editing the review to reflect the end-result of the debacle surrounding my wedding dress, caused by this vendor:

1) The Dressing Room in St. Petersburg (where both my mother and my husband's mother purchased their gowns and where we purchased our bridesmaids' gowns) fixed my butchered wedding gown for free;

and 2) the designer/manufacturer of my dress, when I contacted it about the series of events that happened with Malindy Elene regarding my gown, cleaned and preserved it for free.

Hope this helps in making your decision where to purchase your wedding gown. It should be one of the most fun things about your wedding planning, and certainly not ruined by, what in my opinion, is the most poorly-run business with which I've ever dealt.

I purchased my wedding gown, in addition to my bridesmaids dresses at Malindy Elene Bridal. Personally, I would recommend this bridal salon to anyone in the Tampa Bay area & beyond. Their dress selection, both bridal gowns and bridesmaid dresses are lavish and unique. Additionally, the salon offers mother of the bride gowns, flower girl dresses & a vast selection of accessories from shoes, to fabulous jewelry. I personally met and worked with each member of their staff while not only purchasing my dress, but then having my dress altered there as well. I can honestly say that each member of their staff takes time to ensure that their customers feel welcome upon coming into the salon and throughout. Additionally, I felt as though their follow up was thorough, as well as professional. The girls are truly wonderful. Lindy, the owner of the salon, has certainly created a grand atmosphere. My time spent there was nothing short of exceptional. Thank you to everyone at Malindy Elene Bridal.

I purchased my wedding gown, in addition to my bridesmaids dresses at Malindy Elene Bridal through Taylor who is FABULOUS! Personally, I would recommend this bridal salon to anyone in the Tampa Bay area & beyond. Their dress selection, both bridal gowns and bridesmaid dresses are lavish and unique.

I personally met and worked with each member of their staff while not only purchasing my dress, but then having my dress altered there as well. I can honestly say that each member of their staff takes time to make each and every customer feel especially welcome upon coming into the salon and throughout. Additionally, I felt as though their follow up was thorough, as well as professional. The girls are truly wonderful. Lindy, the owner of the salon, has certainly created a grand atmosphere. My time spent there was nothing short of exceptional.

Thank you to everyone at Malindy Elene Bridal.

Pros: EXCEPTIONAL CUSTOMER SERVICE AND BEAUTIFUL WEDDING GOWNS

Cons: No cons

AWFUL salespeople! Total snobs! I went here at the recommendation of my florist, who is the best in Tampa. Ladies- BEWARE of the bridal network and referrals vendors give! This was a pretty boutique, but very very snotty salespeople. The selection was extremely limited as well, for bridal gowns and bridesmaid's dresses. Send a message to this boutique by going elsewhere! They think they have the market cornered and can treat customers with disrespect! Brides spend a lot of money to make their wedding special, and buying our dress or bridesmaid's dresses should be a wonderful experience. Malindy Elene's salespeople have bad attitudes! However, I love Monica and everyone at CC's Bridal Boutique- very nice and much better selection. CC's won my business and I tried on a lot of dresses at many boutiques!
