This shop has a good staff, but not much variety in dresses for either the bride or the bridesmaids.

3 of my closest friends bought dresses while Bluestein's was downtown in 2005. The store in St.Peters I believe is under different management. Downtown my friends had no problem finding great dresses under $700 with great customer service. The ladies made them feel like brides (or a princess). NOT THE CASE in ST. Peters.

If you want a high end dress for the price, this is probably the place for you. I scheduled an appointment a the store, when I walked in, all the ladies were busy. When someone did come over I described what I was looking for.... in response to I didn't want to try on a dress more than $900 (because it would break my heart to love a dress I could not afford.) With a look of pity she said "Well, you are really limiting your choices. Less than 10% of the dresses are in that range." Then she stood looking at me....I responded with "well, let's see them then." Ohh, I sure didn't feel like a princess. They expect you to already have your undergarments and acted as if I was such a novice for not knowing. At other stores I previously shopped at, I got see the effect a specific garment had on the look of a dress. I don't know how I would buy an undergarment before my wedding dress?

Bottom line... Brides on a Budget, this is probably NOT your place... Maybe I would have been treated better if I was carrying a bigger wallet.

I've been to a few bridal stores thus far, trying to find my wedding gown. I've had good experiences at all the other places, however, the person working with me here did not make this pleasant. Her comments about how I looked in the dresses were unwelcomed, and I left there feeling pretty poorly about my self-image (which is normally pretty healthy). Maybe she had an off-day, but it left a lasting impression with me.

My bridesmaid dresses were from here and had they not needed alterations, we would have probably had a better experience. One bridesmaid was promised her dress at a certain time, and after driving about 45 miles to get there, was told that there was a delay and it would be ready the following day. The straps broke on two of the dresses a half an hour before my wedding, even though they both had paid for reinforced straps to insure this wouldnt happen.

PROS: beautiful dresses
CONS: bad alterations and communication with customers

I bought my wedding gown here for only $200 back in June 2003. It was gorgeous and I only spent $200 in alterations. They were great about keeping me updated about the status of my dress and would remind me when my fittings were. The girls that worked there were very nice and they'd help me pick out my accessories and veils to try on. Everything went great except for two days prior to the wedding in April 2004 when one of my bridesmaids went in to pick up her dress and they accused her of not paying for alterations when she did after dropping the dress off a week earlier. We had to dig for the receipt and even showed them her check register. Needless to say she left the store in tears.
