What a great experience! They actually listen to you here. When I arrived for my appointment, the salesperson asked me what I was looking for in a gown and what my budget was. She brought several great gowns that were exactly what I asked for. (I had been to a couple other places that brought me gowns over my budget or nothing like what I wanted ??just to see what you think? in the hopes I??d spend more.)

They were so patient and helpful, they made me feel like a bride, not just another sale. I found the perfect gown at a great price! I??m so happy! If you want personal service, this is the perfect place.

Pros: Selection and Prices

This place is wonderful, you tell these ladies what you like and they will find it. My sister purchased her dress and our bridesmaids dresses here. Everything was PERFECT...and yes schedule an APPOINTMENT. That is how they do business. This way they CAN provide the BEST service to you.

This was my first experience in a bridal shop. I got there and initially the saleswoman seemed friendly---she recommended that she pick gowns to bring to me. She put them on me, which was fine (however, since then, I have been to many other shops where I put the gowns on by myself and they are there to assist when I need it). After trying on some gowns that she picked which were not really working for me, I asked if I could look around at the gowns in the shop. She then asked (after putting gowns on me for 40 min.), "What would you be looking for?" in a very sarcastic tone. I wanted to say, "What would you think a bride-to-be would be looking for in a bridal shop during her appointment? A DRESS!" Then, went on to say that she had another appt. coming soon, etc., etc. I left not being able to look at any of the gowns for myself and worried that my experience the next day would be similar. I was happy to find that it was the absolute opposite. My next appt. was at Dena Marie's bridal shop in Roseville, and my experience there could not have been better!! I highly recommend them!

Cons: was not permitted to browse at gowns (at appt.)

I stopped in the first time without an appointment, but Judi was very friendly and let me look around until the next person came.

When I came back for my own appointment with my mom and (soon to be) mother in law, I understood why they only want one bride in the store at a time: so they can give EXCELLENT service. She let me pile through the dresses and was very honest with me about how I looked in each one. I never felt pressured in any way and appreciated all the advice on what to look for with my body type.

I went to a lot of stores and had a hard time making up my mind on which dress I wanted. When I went back for a third time with a friend, but kept coming back to the same one. Judi acted more like a friend through the process than someone trying to sell me a dress and that made all the difference in the world. I got my dress and I LOVE IT!!

I went in their to try a couple of dresses that the store had that I was looking for. I went on a Thursday afternoon and the store was not busy at all. I asked the lady if I could try on a couple of dresses and she said, " your going to have to make it quick because I have an appointment coming." O.k. there was no one in the store and she was telling me to speed it up. WEIRD!! I think because I was by myself that she did not think I was a serious shopper. It just so happens that all my family are out of town and I was making the decision by myself. I thought the whole experience was a big turn off. I would not recommend this store, it was nothing special.

Cons: Not Very Helpful, Rude

.

Judi was very helpful and pointed me in the right direction immediately. The prices at Napier are the same as many other bridal shops in the Twin Cities and also they will order a dress very similar to your size needs to cut alteration costs. Great selection of Maggie Sottero, not much by Allure. Napier is a small shop which is a good place to start your wedding dress search, they had the right amount of selection. The feeling of being overwhelmed with so many choices could ruin what is supposed to be a fun and special experience.

Pros: Great sellection of Maggie Sottero, competative pricing

Cons: needs updating, size of store

So much better than David's bridal! I know that sounds obvious, however I went to David's B for affordability. Napier has the affordability AND spectacular service! The mother daughter duo are awesome and SUPER accommodating to every little need we had.

Pros: Knowledgeable and caring

Cons: tiny store (charming though!)

.

I was referred here by a friend and I was immediately impressed with the staff. Judi and Jackie are wonderful! I found the perfect dress right away and the store was able to hang on to it at the shop for over a year until my wedding.

My mom was able to find a gorgeous mother of the bride dress that wasn't too matronly but wasn't too young for her at Napier, all 6 of my bridesmaids got their dresses from here (even though 3 of them live out of state, it still worked out perfectly because the staff was so helpful!) and all of the guys (12 in all) got their tuxes from here. It was an awesome experience!

I never felt rushed or like I was just another person--Judi knew who I was every time I went into the store without me having to remind her. They are also incredibly honest and never tell you that you look good in something when you don't just so you'll buy it--if you ask them their opinion on a dress or a fabric or a style, they will tell you honestly, so you don't end up looking bad in a poorly-fitting dress just so they could make a sale. They really care about you individually and about helping you find the perfect dress.

Of all the wedding vendors I've dealt with, the people at Napier were the easiest, most helpful, and least stressful that I worked with. Every bride MUST MUST MUST go here--you will be so happy you did!

Wow. I had an absolutely horrible experience at Napier. The lady was incredibly rude and treated me like a second class citizen. She acted like I was wasting her time, yet there was no one else in the store. Though she did make sure to tell me that she had an appointment coming in 10 minutes the minute I walked in the door.

Everyone I know will hear about the horrors of this place and I will tell them to stay far far away. There are way too many friendly bridal shops with much better selections for my friends to give their business too.

Pros: Example: best croissants in town

Cons: What are the drawbacks?

.

I purchased a bridesmaid dress here and the sales staff were so much more pleasant than other places I tried. With many other stores, you have to "register" to even try on a dress and then they sell your information to other vendors. Or the staff looks down on you if you can't spend a fortune. But the staff at Napier made me feel at ease to browse and were very helpful when I did need assistance. My experience was so pleasant that I decided to buy my wedding dress here.

I could not have been more happy with my purcahse of my wedding dress and also my bridesmaids dresses from Napier. I worked with both the owner and her daughter and both of them were more knowledgable then any other person I have worked with. I went in with a picture in my head of the dress I was looking for, and I walked out with my dream dress!!!! i would recommend this store to anyone looking for a formal or wedding dress.

Pros: large selection, knowledgeable staff, very large dressing areas

Cons: small store,

.

This shop is wonderful! The woman I worked with was very knowledgeable (she talked about customizing a dress through a particular designer and she knew what could and could not be altered with every dress). She was involved, but also gave my friends/family and I the time to discuss each dress. She did not rush us at all. The prices here are also great!!! I found my dress at this shop and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for their wedding dress.

I had a really rough time planning my wedding, but when I stepped into this bridal shop, my troubles were soon over! This is a family owned business and they do a great job! I got great customer service, very personal attention, and not only did I order my wedding dress there, but I got the formal wear for the men, and accessories for the ceremony, cake, etc! Everything came in early and everything was done right the FIRST time!!!!! I really loved this place. It was the only thing about my wedding that I didn't have to worry about at all, and for that, I am very grateful! I would highly recommend this place to anyone!

I loved Napier Bridal! I went to the Wedding Shoppe first, and felt lost in the crowd and annoyed with the loud flurry going on around me. I THEN found Napier Bridal and they were very friendly, down to earth, and left me alone when I wanted to be. After close inspection of all their wedding dresses, I found the one that I wore to my July wedding. It was gorgeous, and it came in before their predicted arrival date, too! I also found dresses for my bridesmaids there, as well as getting a discount on my veil. They're a family-owned business, which I like... yes, it's a humble building and the dresses are pretty crowded on the racks. However, I would recommend Napier to anyone.

Pros: friendly staff, veil & tuxes are discounted w/ dress purchase, no crowds, easy parking, good prices

Cons: smaller, cramped store

.

I agree with the previous review. This bridal shop does not assist the customers well or make the experience special. The salon was fairly small, and both the salon and dressing rooms weren't the most up-to-date. I would not go back to or recommend Napier Bridal.

Don't deal well with people. I do not suggest going to Napier Bridal. They don't make their customers feel important and don't make the experience in any way special.
