ordered my daughter's prom dress months in advance only to find out that they had put the wrong prom date down (and school)....dress on the rack would of been fine, but they said they don't sell the ones off the rack (it only needed to be hemmed and straps taken in...was quoted one price and in the end had to pay another...so get it in WRITTING), when the dress finally came in after several phone calls and visits to the store, it was way too big, so had to get sides also taken in (for an additional charge of course)....was hoping to get the lesser price quoted on alterations, but didn't and ended up paying even more because dress was too big. Luckily no other girl at her prom had same dress (since they had her listed for another school)....didn't really get an apology or any kind of discount for all the hassel/trouble i went through. In the end got a beautiful dress, but spent WAY too much on alterations and too big of a headache.... :-(

I went to Hope's in June of 2010 hoping to find a dress for my wedding which was scheduled for June of 2011. The staff were extremely helpful and were very honest, my appoinment was honored and I was not rushed. I fell in love with my dress and ordered it that day. In September my fiance was notified that he would be deploying to Afghanistan in November. We called Hope's to see what my options were, they did everything in their power to check on my dress. We moved my wedding date up to October 23rd, and my dress came in October 17th. Last minute alterations were done and I was able to take my dress home the 21st. This store went above and beyond for me. VERY impressed.

Absolutely LOVE this place. I had such a great experience there! The people where so helpful, I had emailed some pictures of dresses ahead of time and they were able to find the PERFECT dress for me based on pictures. I had an appointment and they helped me the whole time I was there. HOWEVER, I don't recommend going there for bridesmaids gowns, especially if anyone in your party isn't a size 4-12 because they just don't have bigger sizes (go to Davids Bridal -> cheaper and they have multiple sizes in the styles).

DO NOT go to this store. They will tell you anything to gain your business, then treat you like crap when something goes wrong. Bought my bridal dress from this store and the dress came in wrong with the wring hem. They would not be liable for anything. They were EXTREMELY RUDE and I will never go back there again. I had to spend my wedding day with a screwed up dress that I paid 2,000 for. HORRIBLE STORE.

If I could give negative stars, I would. I really think the people that gave good reviews either work for Hope's or own Hope's. Hope's service is awful. I am a bridesmaid and went there for the bride, however, as soon as I walked in I wanted to walk out. The place is literally COVERED in carpet. All over the walls and floor, everywhere, and the whole place smells like urine.
The set up is awful. The floor is super cramped and dresses are everywhere. It's impossible to walk and not be touching dresses or carpet walls.
We were a bridal party and were given only 2 fittings rooms for 6 bridesmaids and the bride. Prom dress purchasers were given the only two stages available. We had absolutely no service on the day we were trying on dresses. All the dresses available to try on were in sizes 10 and larger, for a bridal party with several size 2-4 it was very difficult to choose a dress based on a style when they didn't have the proper size.
I called to order my dress and stated I was going to order my dress....it took 2 hours to get a call back and an additional two calls to confirm my order.
I would not recommend this shop to anyone.

Hope's has the best selection, the kindest staff, and the most fun experience for bridal and prom shopping that I have found in Iowa. We've been there for for multiple occassions, and my family and friends will continue to go back, because they can't be beat. They CAN be incredibly busy at times, but that's because the shop is so great. If it's important to you to have a quiet, one-on-one experience, I'd recommend going in the middle of the week.

I decided to give Hopes Bridal a chance after hearing not so great things. After all...I do have my own opinion but let me tell you!!! I did not get ANY help when I walked in there. They were not even that busy. I was told most dresses did not look good on me. KEEP THAT TO YOURSELF!! One of those dresses happened to be the one I bought....just not with them. A tip to the employees...Don't be so rude, we help provide your paychecks.

I had a wonderful experience while shopping for my prom dress at Hopes. There were times when the staff was so busy that they couldn't come right away to help me, but I understood, because once they came back they were very helpful. I had such a fun time shopping for my prom dress, I told my friend who was getting married to shop there, and she did. Guess what? She had a GREAT experience! Her wedding was so beautiful, and if it weren't for Hopes services, it wouldn't have been the same, I definently think its a great store and fun place to shop!

Purchased wedding gown there. Some staff are knowledgable, but many are local high school girls. My daughter was measured, and told she did not need extra length, when gown arrived and tried on, it was too short and she could not wear the crinoline underskirt the dress was designed for to make the skirt fuller because it caused it to be hitched up even higher and looked totally wrong. The staff poo-poohed this by insisting the dress was long enough, but it was at least 2 inches too short. They refused to take accountability for this, and there was nothing we could do about it. Hopes is one of those bridal stores where you are treated well until they have your check. Then they hide behind their "no return" policies and barely have the time of day for you. We spent well over a thousand dollars just for the wedding dress and accessories. Then, to make matters worse, one of the new staff tried to tell me I still owed for the dress - luckily I had my original receipt and cancelled check with me. The corridor area now has several new bridal stores, so there are great alternatives to Hopes - I recommend you shop at them. Hopes may be O.K. if everything goes smoothly, but if not, don't trust them to make things right.

I knew the minute I got engaged the only place I wanted to get my dress at was at Hope's. The minute that I walked in the door that it was the right place for me. The staff was very courteous to me even though I was larger they had dresses that fit me. I got my dress and my bridesmaids all got their dresses their too. Thank you for all that you did to make my day so special.

Hope's has a large selection of dresses and they are very helpful. I had a picture of the dress I wanted and they didn't have it in the store but they were able to order it for me and it came in no time. They helped me find everything I needed and they were really nice. I would definitely recommend them!

You can hardly miss the Pink Barn and house along Highway 30 as you are headed west from Cedar Rapids. This bridal boutique has been there for years! They have everything you could possibly want for a wedding. Gowns, veils, books, tuxedos, dresses for little girls, alterations, fittings, glasses and so much more. You just have to experience it.

I would NOT recommend this bridal boutique to anyone searching for a bridal gown. I had a magazine picture of the wedding dress that I wanted. I showed the lady the picture, and she said, "We don't have that, and we won't be able to get it!" We were to be married in 6 months, and she said there was NO WAY should could order a dress in that short time. I would have to find a dress there in the store to buy, that was my only choice! She then walked off and ignored me for the next hour! I wanted to ask some questions, and couldn't even find someone to help me at all!! I was very disappointed in this service and do not recommend anyone hoping to find a dress at this location!

Hopes bridal has a nice selection of gowns. They also offer tuxedo's, flower girl items, ring bearer items, jewelry, and invitations. They also allow you to make payments on your purchases, that's nice. The only thing is that they are a little out of the way if you live in Cedar Rapids, but over all it's worth the trip.
