This is one bridal gallery that you cannot afford to miss if you are looking for excellent service, broad selection, and an atmosphere that will help you make the best choice possible for your wedding gown, bridesmaid dresses or mother of the bride/groom gowns. I have purchased a wedding gown for my daughter, bridesmaid gowns, and gown for myself for her wedding as well as my daughter-in-law purchasing her wedding gown and gowns for her entire wedding party. All were stunning, with excellent caring service towards each of us! This store deserves 5+ star rating for the personalized attention given to me and my family! The store layout is beautiful with lots of mirrors and area for the brides to gain a full picture of how they appear in each gown. I don't believe that you will find a better selection of gowns anywhere in the area - whether it is for bridal, bridesmaid, or mothers! Check it out!

I would NOT recommend to anyone looking for a special experience! I was ignored and felt very unwelcome! I drove 7 hours to dress shop with my mother and sister last weekend. I had called ahead to make an appointment at Mecklenburg Bridal several weeks in advance. I had chosen this store particularly because they carried a designer that not many stores in the area do. I informed my consultant Kay ahead of time which dresses I would like to try on. She told me she would have them waiting in my room when I got there. They weren't. I also reminded her once I arrived about the dresses I was wanting with pictures and style numbers, still they did not come. She did manage to bring some dresses that were exactly what I said I did NOT want or that were over my budget. I spent over half my appointment waiting in the room alone for something to try on. And was eventually told I had to leave because my time was up. By the time I left I was very upset and had still not seen the dresses I came in looking for. I would NOT recommend this store to anyone! I bought my dress at The Bridal House and my experience was great! Would recommend them to anyone!

My dress search began in Columbia, SC where I was not pleased with level service I was receiving and the quality and selection of dresses that were available to me. I'm a 5-10" woman and wear a size 14 -16 dress in street clothes. I was so disappointed that I could barely find a dress I could try on let alone one that was beautiful and met my expectations. So after visiting 4 shops in Columbia, I started looking in Charlotte. My first stop was Mecklenberg Bridal. My attendant was Suzannah. Not only did I find one dress, I found 2! I was surprised at how beautiful the dresses were and how affordable they were. One was out of the 2008 Casablanca collection and perhaps that??s why it was so affordable. Anyway, I had a great experience, Suzannah discussed all my options from alterations, to accessories, etc. My first fitting is in June 2011 for my July wedding in the Bahamas. It was a clean, well organized store with a wide variety to choose from.

I was extremely happy with my experience at Mecklenburg Bridal. From the call to set up my appointment through the purchase, Kay was very sweet and helpful. When you arrive, they take you on a tour through the store to see how the (400+) dresses are organized by style. You are then free to pull as many dresses as you want to try. I really appreciated this freedom. While Kay was available to help, she wasn't overbearing at all. Most of the dresses fell within my $1500 budget and I was thrilled with my final choice. I have not received the dress yet, but I am confident that MB will not disappoint. They also have a very knowledgeable veil consultant/designer in-house (Jet Taylor) from whom I will probably purchase my veil. **Remember to print their CitySearch page and you won't have to pay the $25 fee.

I went to Mecklenburg Bridal to look for my wedding dress after hearing they were such a great place. They were not - at least not to me. When I made my appointment, I gave the woman the styles I was most interested in and she said that would be fine. But when I got there, the girl who assisted me only brought me 3 of the 11 styles. I asked to see the others and she said they don't carry them. Why couldn't the woman on the phone have told me that?! And then, the dresses she had me try on were dirty and had rips in them. I have a pretty good imagination, but I couldn't imagine spending hundreds of dollars on any of the dresses I tried on. They have some antiquated rules in place and do not allow photographs to be taken, which I found odd - how can a bride be expected to make a decision about the most important article of clothing she will ever wear without being able to see a picture of herself in the dress? And the staff just seemed uninterested in helping me find a dress, so I will definitely be purchasing my wedding dress elsewhere.

My daughter's consultant, Susannah, could not have been more disinterested or detached. Did not even say hello the handful of times we were in there. Also girls were misinformed of alteration prices. However, her best friend had a wonderful consultant. Guess it's the luck of the draw!

I recently went here and had a wonderful experience. Susannah was very helpful without being pushy or intrusive. Large selection of beautiful dresses with most ranging around $1000. She led me through the store explaining how the dresses were grouped and I was free to try on as many as I wished. Bring your own undergarments (strapless bra) to use. Great store & can't wait until my dress arrives in June!

You have got to go to Mecklenburg Bridal! As the mother-of -the-bride and a very picky person, I would highly recommend Mecklenburg Bridal for all of your wedding needs. My daughter and I found her bridal dress & veil, her bridesmaid dresses, my mother of the bride dress, and my mother of the groom dress there. They are BY FAR the nicest, most accomodating people and have the best selection of gowns for all bridal party needs. We tried on over thirty bridal dresses and they never made us feel like we were hassling them. We have had a very positive experience and think you will be pleased, too. They have a wide selection of everything, reasonable prices, and the people who work there aren't snooty! The other shops just seemed really stuffy and snobby. Weddings should be fun........ shopping for them should be fun too! We used Susannah Funk at Mecklenburg Bridal. Our experience couldn't have been better! :-)

Pros: Best In Charlotte

I would HIGHLY recommend Mecklenburg Bridal to any Charlotte-area bride! I wasn't sure what to expect when I initially made my appointment but I was definitely very pleased. Everyone was absolutely wonderful to work with!! They have a great selection of dresses, do not pressure you or make you feel rushed, give their honest opinions and definitely take their time to make sure you are satisfied. In less than 3 hours, I had purchased my wedding dress. I felt like the staff was very down-to-earth and attentive. I would absolutely recommend any bride to make an appointment with them. They did mention that Saturdays are absolutely crazy and it's best to make an appointment during the week.

My daughter and I purchased her wedding dress and my m.o.b. dress at Mecklenburg Bridal. We loved working with them. When we got it narrowed down to three dresses for my daughter, there was quite a range in cost. There was no pressure to go with the more expensive dress and, in fact, we ended up with the least expensive. Staff were always courteous and helpful. The $25 fee is a drop in the bucket and, of course, it is a "credit" toward a future purchase. I would highly recommend working with this shop.

I have never been to this shop, but I do have friends in the bridal business and have been a bridal shop owner in the past. I can tell you why some shops have started charging a fee to try on gowns. Some girls are not serious shoppers and they go to bridal shops because its fun to try on the gowns or they are just price shopping with no intention to buy, taking up the sales girls time. Not to mention the wear and tear on these delicate gowns. You would understand it if you were a shop owner and had money invested in this expensive inventory. It;s not WalMart !! If dresses are soiled, beads start falling off or if the zipper gets worn out from so much wear, you can't sell it and will soon go out of business. If you purchase a gown, the fee is considered part of the down payment and is not an additional cost. Most shops now charge this fee and the ones that don't most likely will in the near future. It's becomming a more popular thing to do and if you read the bridal magazines you will see that they tell the brides to be awair of this fee.. Just a thought

I went to Mecklenburg Bridal as the first stop in my bridal gown search. I was drawn by their sample sale that was advertised to me by word of mouth. Given the other options for bridal boutiques, the $25 consultation fee is nothing! Most stores want you to sign your life away before trying on their items. I tried on something like 12 dresses and was allowed all the time in the world to make my decision. Although it was my first stop, Mecklenburg Bridal had exactly the gown I was looking for, and it was at a fantastic price.
I can't believe what some of the other people are saying here. The consultation fee is something I came to expect from vendors while planning my wedding, the staff was patient and knowledgable, and the store was well kept and had a large selection of beautiful gowns.
I continued to recieve great service throught the fitting and pressing process up until the wedding day!

WOW!!! was the impression when I walked through the door!!! The people are friendly and professional the place is beautiful and they have the BEST selection of dresses. Being the prepared person I am I had looked into Mecklenburg Bridal on their website and called for an appointment where each explained to me about their $25.00 consultation fee and what it was about?. I had never thought of it like that before but it totally makes sense, so I was ready for it when I walked through the door (I wish some of the other brides on this site had done the same so that they could understand instead of their petty responses to the fee) I worked with Kay and she was amazing! I was not pressured and I felt like an old friend. They have everything from the guest books, the alterations, even a veil designer. The one stop place for all your wedding needs, they also have great recommendations on photographers etc? I made a two hour appointment for a Sat. and came back later in the week to try on my favorites, they already had them ready for me when I got there!! I found the dress of my dreams and am now happily married and the ENTIRE experience from the first time I walked in to portrait time to on my way to the church was so SMOOTH. Thank you for making it so EASY and FUN!!! I hope everyone is as lucky as I was to buy their dress with Mecklenburg Bridal Gallery!!!

I was actually very pleased with Mrs. Kay's "old ways"... what I would give to meet just ONE person daily who is kind, understanding and has the"old" fashioned values such as her. Maybe some of us should learn from example.

My experience was truly one of a kind. Mrs. Kay & Chase listened to the things I did and did not want in a dress and made a few suggestions and then brought me some very beautiful dresses. The one I ended up picking was actually one that had something that I didn't initially like but looked very different ON my body. For 2+ hours of her time, lugging around countless heavy dresses and being so attentive I was more than happy to pay $25. I personally think it's a smart way for the bridal shop to make sure their brides are serious customers instead of some yahoos trying on $1K + dresses just for the heck of it.

Even if it was free I still would have taken them both to Rusty's for all their help!

Thank you Ladies I'll be referring every bride I know to you!!

Mecklenburg bridal is the best store that I shopped at in Charlotte. It has the most helpful staff. The staff made this experience for me as magical as I had ever wished it to be. The selection of dresses was absolutely amazing and beautiful. Everything was very clean and organized. The staff was very helpful in every aspect. Most definitely the best bridal shop I have ever been to.

I am a New York bride and was visiting my mother in law in Charlotte for a few weeks and we decided we should go shopping I had already been to quite a few stores in New York so I was familiar with (and totally understand) a consultation fee, $25.00 for their great selection was a deal!!! This was actually the last shop I went to in Charlotte and was wonderfully surprised at how beautiful the store is and how amazing the people are, much better than any of the other stores in Charlotte (I was very disappointed in the rest!) I was welcomed with my party of 4 with open arms and was able to find EVERYTHING for the girls in the wedding! My dress, veil (Jet is great), dresses for both mom and mother in law and all the bridesmaids!! Mecklenburg Bridal is a place when you walk in the door you really want to be ??your bridal shop? I was so happy to find the perfect dress at the perfect place!!! I could rave about this place forever, and just a tip for other out of area brides they have AMAZING seamstresses, it is worth the trip back to have your dress fitted instead of chancing the most important outfit of your life on just anyone. (the also will atler dresses that come from somewhere else, so even if you already boughtyou should go there to have it fitted!) I will tell ALL my friends about this place, Charlotte is lucky to have such a great run shop!!!

I enjoyed my experience here. I looked at Bridesmaids dresses with my maid of honor. We worked with Kay and she was extremely nice. She was not high pressure at all. My maid of honor and i took our time. We had plenty of selection and we ended of finding a dress. My biggest concern was my other bridesmaids. They are all out of state. But Kay advised that i buy all the dresses at the same time, that way they are all from the samel lot and will match exactly. So i sent my girls measurements to Kay and sure enough, a few weeks later, they all received their dresses to their homes. It was much easier for them, and i didn't have to worry that they found the "right dress". I chose not to wear a vail at my wedding, but i did sit down with Jet anyway and she was a doll. She does do beautiful work, so don't forget to meet her while you are there.

Pros: Selection, Staff

Cons: Fee - it was initially a turnoff, but after the valuable consultation i received - i would have paid double!

I had the pleasure of puchasing my gown at Mecklenburg Bridal with the help of a very qualified and delightful saleslady. She knew her Bridal gown designers and gave me much more information than I found in bridal magazines. I felt no pressure, even though my wedding is in February! I needed a gown to walk down the aisle! My consultant was patient and I felt all the attention was on me. I am a size 18, (thanks to my Italian genes) and found the perfect gown for me.
Twenty-five dollars??!!!? Geez. Come on! Grow up! How much do you pay for a manicure? Hair style? A pair of shoes? The video and photographs of your wedding day are forever!!! Give Mecklenburg Bridal another chance, gowns look very different on a body than a hanger; attitude.

I visited Mecklenburg Bridal after two very disappointing experiences. One at a local bridal chain, and one at a higher end salon. I did not have an appointment and was caught off guard by the consultation fee, but the consultant encouraged be to look around at their selection to see if I though it would be worth it to pay.
(She explained I would later be able to use it as a credit towards my gown, my bridesmaid dresses, or my mother's dress.) Boy did I! I had no idea how many gowns they had....it was hard to pick. And the prices were unbelieveably affordable!
Fortunately, I had gone during the week. This proved in my favor, although I did not have an appointment, I was able to take my time trying on several gowns. I found my gown after trying on the 1st one! But the consultant encouragement me again to give them all a try before deciding. Which I did, and still loved the first one! I was pleasantly suprised how easy it was. I made an appointment for that Saturday with my mom and maid of honor to purchase. My mother was so impressed with the service she too found a dress. My maids will be getting 15% off. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this bridal shop. Save yourself the hassle of going from store to store and get everything done at Mecklenburg Bridal!

Oh and by the way, I put my credit toward my maid of honor's dress...

My mother and I had the most wonderful experience here and I feel the story should be told! Yes, they do have a consultation fee.....BUT you have 3 opportunities to get it back as a credit! (I am from the north where these fees are not uncommon!) And I was informed clearly about this fee when I called to schedule my first appointment. Their gown selection is AWESOME.....I did not find a selection like this ANYWHERE else!!! The entire staff was extremely friendly, knowledgeable and always willing to assist us with whatever our needs were! My gown came in right on time and the alteration process was a dream.....both seamstresses were more than happy to make suggestions to accomplish the look that I had envisioned! This store comes highly recommended by many of my friends who also had nothing but GREAT things to say about their professionalism and willingness to follow the entire process though! I could not have been more pleased with my entire experience at Mecklenburg Bridal Gallery!!!!!!!! THEY ARE GREAT!!!!!!

This place charges 25 dollars just to try on dresses. They are very rude and do not help you pick out dresses. So what is the 25 dollars for??? Who knows. Probably because they can't sell wedding dresses. There wedding dresses are way over priced. Other shops have the same dress cheaper (ex. bridal mart, impressions bridal and formal wear in Concord). The only reason to go here is to visit Jet Taylor. She makes handmade veils and is independent from the ladies that sell the wedding dresses. Jet is amazing and does high quality work. She is able to make a veil quickly if you need it in a hurry. Just remember do not go here to get your wedding dress only your veil. You don't have to pay Jet to look at her veils!

Pros: Jet Taylor who makes veils, She is amazing!!

Cons: Charge 25 dollars, rude, snobby, won't help with the dresses, won't refund your 25 dollars

I had a pretty bad experience as well here, I drove 45 minutes to get there and came with a long list of dresses both bridal and bridesmaid that I was interested in and not one of them did they have in the store even though they carried the designer! I was told they couldnt order a sample dress so I could see it in person, I had to buy the dress to even try it on! Not to mention they dont tell you when you book your appt. about the 25 dollar appointment fee, which is just ridiculous who pays money to try on dresses especially since they didnt even carry anything I was interested in!

I had a great time trying on gown here. I read a few reviews on other sites that didn't speak so kindly of it. Some mentioned not having dresses for girls that weren't a size 2! well I'm a size 8 (in normal clothes) and all the gowns I picked out were not a size 2! I personally enjoyed it. I felt as though I was thouroughly taken care of and was not rushed. My 2 hr appt last 3 hrs! I even got to try on my favorites a second time after I tried on a ton of gowns of various styles and by many different designers. I was however not aware of the consultation fee ($25) but as a service provider I understand and I think it was worth it plus if you get you gown from them they take the $25 off the price of the gown.

I love Mecklenburg Bridal! After shopping at many different bridal shops for the perfect dress, I realized that this was the place for me. I loved the one-on-one attention and the fact that they are honest with their opinions. Yes, you may pay a little more than you'd expect for your dream dress but I would gladly pay double that amount to get the wonderful service. Kay and Alice are so nice and helpful. I had an issue with several "picks' in my silk dress and Kay took care of it like a true professional.
