Honestly, after reading the negative reviews, I feel like I need to say something. I went to Manuela's Bridal back in January to begin my hunt for a wedding dress. They moved to Roselle Park on Westfield Avenue which is close to me, so I checked it out.

Tina is the owner and from the first day I met her, I felt like I knew her for years. Her personality makes you feel comfortable, she will tell you her opinion on a dress if you ask for it, and trust me when I say she knows what she's talking about.

It's a boutique, so don't expect a huge place, but honestly you don't need it because it is chock full of any dress or accessory you need! (purse, shoes, jewelry, etc.) There is always a bridal movie playing on the tv which is a nice added touch. One reviewer said that once Tina found out they were visiting other places, she got mean..umm, did you go to the same bridal store as I did?? Tina knew that she was the first bridal boutique we were visiting and she took her time with us and gave us Professional Customer Service and told us to give her a call if we decided to come back. Well, we visited 3 other places (Macys, Russells and David's Bridal) and by far, Manuela's Bridal was the place for me. Not only did we get my gown there, we got the bridesmaids' dresses and my flower girl's dress there too!

My wedding is tomorrow and I picked up my dress today! Tina, you are absolutely the best and I'm sad that I won't see you for anymore dress fittings!! I will be back to visit with photos from my wedding in my beautiful dress! Thank you so much for everything!!!!

I'm not sure about the last two people's reviews, maybe they were having bad days themselves! I've been to Manuela's Bridal for a couple different occasions & I've sent friends there. I have always had wonderful experiances there. Tina is very helpful and goes above and beyond to help the customer be happy! I'm very satisfied with the customer service & my dresses. Keep doing what you're doing Manuela's Bridal.

I went to Manuela's Bridal Boutique as the Maid-of-Honor in a Bridal Party this Summer, and while I don't typically take the time to write reviews, this time I felt a review was warranted so all you ladies reading this could get an unbias opinion of everything from the gown selection at MBB to the service. So here goes...

PROS:
Good selection of dresses
Easily accessible/good hours of operation
Alterations are included... but there's another place in Iselin/Avenel that also includes alterations and is less expensive

CONS:
Unprofessional - As a business owner, I expected that she would be dressed a bit more appropriately. The first time I went in she was wearing a low cut tank and her breasts were literally spilling over. Talk about distracting! Secondly, once she realized that we MAY check out another bridal salon, her whole demeanor towards us changed. I was surprised because I hardly think that we're the only bridal party to check out more than one bridal boutique for dresses.

Pricey - There are other bridal boutiques that are more expensive than Manuela's, but there are certainly ones that are cheaper!

No Air-Conditioning! - Yes, I realize that it sounds silly to complain about this, but as you know Summer of 2012 in NJ was HOT! So imagine going into a boutique (designed to be small) and trying on dresses for hours with NO AC! I know we're in a tough economy, but come'on! We felt stifled and couldn't wait to leave. No lie... I had sweat beads running down my face and chest by the time I left.

Again, I'm surprised that she has been doing this for years. The Bridal business isn't just about your varied quantities of dresses... it's about how comfortable you make your customers feel. In that regard, I say EPIC FAIL for MBB.

Tina is super nice when you come in to try on dresses along with your bridal party. Although, when you and your bridal party have plans and appointments set up to go to other bridal shops to check out other dresses she gets PISSED! At the end of our appointment when she had learned that we were going somewhere else to try on more gowns, I told her we would keep in touch if we would decide to keep the dress that we all had agreed on. When I reached over to tell her which dress we liked most, she stomped on the dress so that I wasn't able to pick it up. I just looked at her and she looked at me with vicious eyes. Well... all in all... out of ALL the dresses we had tried on we liked the dress at her shop the most. We all agreed on it.. but gave that business elsewhere. We didn't realize the NASTY attitude that we would experience with her. NEVER AGAIN.

After going to several other bridal shops including Davids Bridal terrible customer service no one seamed to know what was what or who was who.A friend told me about Manuelas Bridal on which I visited and was very impressed not only with the one to one service but the competative prices.Yes I ordered all my bridesmate dresses from this Bridal store..small place but an extremely large inventory they can get you almost anything,alterations are always free to.

Recently booked and purchased my bridesmate dresses at MANUELAS BRIDAL BOUTIQUE the service was awesome with the combination of a very competative price .....no hassel like some bridal shops I checked before going to Manuelas.It probably would of been my first and only stop. But do to the crazy weather and not being able to find a parking space with all the snow at that present time it was well worth going back.Oh and did I mention the free alterations,thanks Tina.

Great service with great prices Tina a very down to earth consultant straight forward helped us with all our needs.I recommend Manuelas Bridal to all future brides they don't treat you as a number like some shops do, but as a person. And to top that we loved the free alterations which other shops don't offer...

Terrible customer service! I'm a bridesmaid at my friends wedding and so far I've gotten nothing but attitude. I'm not sure why she picked this place, but I would much rather pay more than have an unpleasant experience. If price is a factor, and this place is cheaper, than you get what you pay for!! I will NEVER go back to this place. If you're looking for a enjoyable experience, please stay away!!

Thus far, this shop has proven to be a "cannot miss" unless you are looking for a woman that is the opposite of honest and a "traditional brooklyn mother", or something. Tina reminded me of a hip and nice mother from "down the shore" or something with how real and up front she was. Outside of her personality, I found my bridesmaids dresses there for the cheapest price in all of NJ. It was GREAT!

I am surprised to see the negative reviews here. I've been there several times (including for my own wedding) and found them extremely helpful and friendly. Tina actually chose the dress for my bridesmaids, and she was right on the money, my girls were knockouts! Got my gown for a steal, and alterations are free! I loved dealing with them.

it is a VERY small place HOWEVER her prices are great,the location is perfect and there is never other people there when its your appointment.One time another girl came in while we were there and that was because we were running late!
They can get a little pushy with a certain dress or style that they happen to like.... you just have to know how to say NO thats not what I want!They are good people and I have never had a problem with making an appointment and the store being closed.

Customer service is not great! Tina will get your product but her attitude stinks, especially since the bride is already stressed out. Great location off of PKWY Exit 135.

Have gotten numerous bridesmaid dresses here, most often the shop has been chosen because of its location, not because of its service. Pricing is competitive and negotiable, alterations are reasonable. Service leaves much to be desired. Have had numerous problems with the store being closed on days when we had made appointments, receipt of dresses. Staff is somewhat friendly, not great.
