I had an amazing experience! The original appointment was so much fun and I had a GREAT consultant! She ended up pulling the dress I left with. She really took my comments into consideration and knew what I was looking for! Before buying my dress I went to an appointment at another shop, but I did not spend a whole lot of time there as it could not compare. I headed back to The Wedding Bell and left with my bridal gown and bridesmaids! It was a good day!

I got married June 25, and have been procastinating writing this review because I didn't want to think about how stressful this experience was. I bought my dress in Connecticut, and went to the Wedding Bell to have my dress altered after reading pretty good reviews about their seamstress, Hilda. I went in for two fittings with her, and was super confident that my dress was going to turn out great! She looked at the dress and decided on the perfect alterations -we needed to take the dress out on the sides (ended up being a waste since I lost the weight anyway :( but not anyone's fault), attach hooks on the back to hide the zipper, and do the bustle. When I picked up the dress two days before my wedding, the seamstress was not even at the store for me to try it on in front of her.

When I got home, I tried on the dress, and realized that she had done a TERRIBLE job stitching parts of my dress back after taking it out. And she had FORGOTTEN to put the hooks on the back of the dress (although she charged me for it on her itemized receipt she included). My mom called her panicked, and since the wedding was taking place an hour away, Hilda agreed to meet us halfway to pick up the dress (apologized all over the place), and then the next day (the DAY before the wedding), my fiance and I had to drive back to pick up the dress from her to make sure she had done the job we originally paid her to do. We were still charged full price for these 'alterations' at the end of the day.

She seemed wonderful at the beginning, but I feel it's my responsibility to let future brides know what they're getting into here. From what I experienced from the rest of the staff- very nice and helpful- of course they're overpriced.. after planning a wedding for 150, I realize that if you're expecting anything less than overpriced wedding vendors, you are in for a HUGE learning curve :) Tis the nature of the business!

I am going to start by giving a little piece of advice. As a bride, if you walk into a shop having the attitude that the consultants should stop what they are doing, leave the current bride that they are working with and give all their attention to you...you are going to be disappointed everytime. However, if you make an appointment ahead of time ( like the wedding bell suggests), I guarantee that you will be pleased with the way you are attended to. Also, if you walk in with a stuck up attitude, that is what you should get in return.
As for my experience with the wedding bell.....
It was great! Lauren was my consultant, and she was very very helpful. I felt that out of all the places I went to look for dresses ( fantastic finds, macys wedding boutique, and beckers bridal) the wedding bell had the most unique selection with prices that would cater to just about anyone. I myself was looking to spend under $1000. And that I did. Actually I won my dress because the wedding bell was doing a drawing. However, 800 was the price of my dress which would have been perfect for my budget. I also was able to get my bridesmaids and my mothers dress there. Hilda, the seamstress is very very good, and very affordable. I'm very thankful for the owner katie, as she was very sincere and generous with her company. I would recommend anyone to at least visit the wedding bell and hopefully find the dress that makes you happy :) good luck ladys!

My wedding has a large guest list, so that means a small budget for attire. The Wedding Bell was the 6th (yes, 6th) place that I tried. I kept finding that other boutiques had a small selection in my price range. However, I told the people at The Wedding Bell that I didn't want to pay a penny over 250$ for my dress and they showed me a great selection of different styles and materials. I ended up loving a discontinued dress that cost me 104$ total!! I appreciated that they were willing to work with me even though they weren't going to make much.

After visiting several other shops in the Lansing area, I made an appointment at The Wedding Bell. I must say you notice an immediate difference between the other stores in the area (who are clearly only interested in your checkbook) and The Wedding Bell. The atmosphere was relaxed and comfortable. The staff was fantastic. They were extremely attentive and very knowledgeable and answered all of my questions. The gown selection was not the biggest but BY FAR the most diverse with something for everyone. I found and purchased a Pronovias gown which I absolutely love. We also found bridesmaids and a mother's dress there. The experience was top notch. I would recommend them to anyone who is looking for her gown!

I had a very hard time at the wedding bell. I went to try on bridesmaid dresses for my best friends wedding. When we walked in we didnt even get a hello or how are you, we were asked what the name was for the appointment we made and directed to the dressing room.(Gee are we in YOUR way..?) When they brought in the first couple dresses I askd for my size and they said they didnt have it but I could "try to squeeze into that one, just to get an idea" Hmm...how can you get a feel of a dress if you cant even fit into it...? In my opinion I think its very hard to judge a dress when the dess they have is 4 sizes to small, seriously..?! After the size dilemma, our measurements were taken and this is when the woman measuring me wondered if I was palnning on losing weight before the wedding. First they dont have my size and then they have the nerve to ask me if im planning on losing weight..?! This was not only the worst dress shopping experience but THE WORST shopping experience Ive ever been through. When an employee makes a comment so rude and hurtful that the customer has to wipe tears away, their is something very wrong with their type of business.

I found my dress here! but that's probably the only good thing I found here. There selection wasn't very good and I had made an appointment and when I showed up for it I felt like I was bugging them by being there. They threw me in a room right in the front and for the most time kept forgetting to shut the door while i was trying on gowns and they didn't seem to thrilled to be helping me out they where a bit rough putting on the dresses and kept leaving every time I put a dress on-the only time they started paying any good attention to me was when they realized i really like the dress and was probably going to buy it. I would recommend people try other stores before they really ever go here it was just by chance i happened to find my dress for cheap at this location but if i had not this place would have been a total waste of my time.

Our shopping trip for my daughter's wedding dress and my mother of the bride dress was absolutely perfect. The attention to detail and service from Katie (the owner) was nothing short of perfection.

Neither of our dresses have arrived, so I can't comment on their seamstress or delivery of dresses.

I will continue to add input because I feel others need to know what to expect when selecting/purchasing items as important as wedding gowns.

As of today, Katie and her staff are top notch in my eyes.

Let's hope the selection/ordering/fitting of the grandmother of the bride dress goes as smoothly and my comments can be as positive.

Really wonderful experience all around. I found my wedding dress and bridesmaids dresses. Katie and the other girls were so helpful! I wanted to order a head piece on display and Katie just gave it to me since it was no longer in stock. How often do businesses do that for their customers?? I was shocked. Also I am from out of town and their amazing seamstress managed to alter my dress after only meeting and measuring me the week before the wedding. My wedding party was very pleased with the service they received as well. I hope all brides can have the experience I did.

I don't know what store the people who wrote negative reviews were in, but my wife purchased her dress through this store and she had a wonderful experience. The service was top notch and the selection was the best in the area. The prices were also right around were everyone else is, between $700-$1800 so it was by no means overpriced. The owner was very friendly and took excellent care of my wife and she couldn't stop raving about what a wonderful time she had. So we would highly recommend this store.

I got my wedding dress and my bridesmaid dresses from the wedding bell. When you make an appointment they treat you great. However, when you just walk in they will treat you like crap. Also, my sister was in a friends wedding and they got the dresses there. They were all ordered to small and had to pay a lot to get them fitted because there wasn't enough time to reorder them. My sister and her friend like most people were just shopping around and went in the store and like I said were treated like crap. But the same girl treated us just fine when we made an appointment. Apparently if you just walk in they don't want you to come back otherwise they wouldn't be so rude. And yes my dress didn't come in on time either, but it wasn't so close that it was a big deal.

PROS: Decent selection. Store and dressing room neat and clean.
CONS: Some of the girls seem to have an attitude.

After shopping @ 3 other bridal shops, my daughter found her perfect dress. Katie was wonderful. We were there 3 hours and received all the personal attention we needed. The dresses are priced to suit all needs and the selection amazing. I highly recommend The Wedding Bell to brides, bridal parties and mom's. I already have my dress from there @ home! THANKS KATIE!

I have had 3 eddings within the last year to shop for, and I must say I was VERY unimpressed with The Wedding Bell.
First of all, the staff treated us like we were unimportant and made us feel like we shouldn't be there (not that we were downtrodden inthe least). They were incredibly unfriendly to say the least.
The selection is very, very limited and sample dresses cater only to the very thin.
Dresses do not arrive on time! Then when they tell you you get free alterations, they try to charge for them. Alterations do not make it to the store when specified (we actually had to DRIVE to the seamstresses home to pick them up the day before the wedding!).
I would recommend finding another bridal shop, as there are many inthe area.

PROS: Some nice dresses
CONS: Poor attitude from staff, limited selection, way overpriced

I have worked in an industry where the average gown is $2000-4000. People that comment that the Wedding Bell is overpriced apparently do not understand quality and craftsmanship, nor would they appreciate it. The ladies in the Wedding Bell were polite, friendly, and helpful. Although my wife did not get her wedding gown here, she found a beautiful veil that was the icing on the cake. I would encourage anyone to visit the Wedding Bell, especially if you are looking for a store with high class and elegance.

PROS: Amazing, beautiful, and well made dresses

I visited the Wedding Bell while I was shopping for a wedding dress, and I was not impressed at all with their selection or service. Their dresses are very expensive and the sales associates were not helpful at all compared to the other bridal shops I had visited. I personally did not find one dress that I liked, but my mom did find her mother's dress, but she paid $600 for a mother's dress. The place is obviously over priced, and I wouldn't recommend anyone to this store!!

I went into the Wedding Bell with a friend and was surprised at the amount of dresses that they had. They were beautiful. The have dresses for all occasions. She had several she liked and it was very difficult to choose. I think their prices are compareable to other shops in the area. I would recommend at least going in and checking it out.

No matter what you are looking for, a wedding gown, a prom dress or a Mothers dress, you can be sure you will find what you want at The Wedding Bell. They have the most beautiful gowns and all the excessories you need to wear with your dress. I needed a dress is 1 month and it had to be ordered because they did not have my size in store and they came through for me. I highly recommend this company.
