With all of the bridal salons on LI, why anyone would choose Iman is a mystery. Her selection is limited and she is as unprofessional as they come. I know a slew of brides - including myself - who have had nothing but problems with her. Dresses coming in late (or not at all), the wrong size, color. And when mistakes are made, Iman simply shrugs and says, "There's nothing I can do." It's not until I threatened legal action that she got my dresses in and the order right.
I can not say enough good things about Iman. Her selection is amazing, she is the most attentive and dedicated professional I have worked with throughout the entire wedding process. I have sent numerous friends and family members to her who were all extremely happy, and recently had the pleasure of being the BRIDE myself!!
I went to other dress stores before Iman's and could have easily walked out of there with 10+ dresses that I loved.
Each visit was better than the next and I would reccommend anyone I know to her!
I will tell you brides, Iman is going to be honest with you, and while everyone else around you is telling you how amazing you look in EVERY dress you put on, Iman will put you in the RIGHT dress and when it's the ONE, you will know!!!
I am very much interested to know if you are the Landlord, the girlfriend/boyfriend, an attorney, or an actual bride, your review makes no sense and helps no one! Spreading personal matters and making accusations against Iman Bridal Couture is irrelevant to the quality of service Iman gives to her Brides. Since you are so fond of spreading rumors, whether false or true, maybe you should be aware of the term SLANDER and how it is illegal. Shame on you for using a website that meant for Reviews of the quality of serivce of a wedding salon for your own private vendetta that you apparently have against Iman.
Iman Bridal Couture is out of this world. Iman herself welcomes you from the second you walk into the store till the day you pick up your dress. The amount of detail and attention i received is one of a kind. All the employees are so attentive and professional. I only wish i had done everything through Iman and know for future things i will. I recommend her to every bride out there, bridesmaid, mother of bride, flower girl- you name it! She would not allow any customer to leave her store without being 100% satisfied regardless if you purchased everything from her or not. Thank you for making my day perfect!
Pros: Perfection, Elegance, Attention to detail,and Sophistication
Cons: There are none
I got married eight months and my fiance is a resident in the Glen Cove Hospital. He passed by Iman Bridal everyday on his way to work and even commented on the beautiful dresses that they always had in the windows and told me go there. I avoided going there at first because of some negative remarks about her. So I did my shopping between Wedding Salon, Bridal Reflections, Priscilla and others. I decided to give it a try and go to Iman's to please my fiance. Let me tell you something, the ambiance of the store was beautiful with all the thank you cards on the wall and the books of thank you cards spoke for themselves, thats when I felt at ease. The service was beyond good especially my sales person Ali, with her smile and patience. After staying in the store for three and a half hours (where other stores didnt even give me an hour), she didnt lose her cool, then I met Iman because I couldnt find what I wanted. She started giving me advice and was talking to me with her beautiful sense of humor and with other people walking in for alterations and picking up their gowns, they didnt leave without thanking her and hugging her for all her great work. After being confused and going back a couple of times I ended up getting my wedding gown, my bridesmaids, my mother and my future mother in law??s dresses there. Everything was perfect from the dresses to the perfect alterations that were done. What made it beautiful was Iman was so caring that she gave me her cell phone number just in case of an emergency on my wedding day (what owner would do that???). She is one of kind person that will help you select your wedding gown with ease. Her advice is valuable because she was in the business for twenty-six years and owns her store for eleven years. She was always in the store no matter what, from when I purchased, to every fitting, to every questions that I had (she says and lives by her philosophy of be there for your client: from her website). In the end, I didnt just leave with a beautiful experience (..and gorgeous dress designed by Iman!), but I left with a friend. The only downfall is that I will not be able to experience it again. I would like to advise everyone to be careful of what you read. Please go and find out on your own what Iman Bridal is all about. Don??t be fooled by the negative.
I recently purchased 2 dresses from Iman for my sons weddings. Iman and her staff were so patient with me as I had to try on every dress in her shop before I found the right one! Not only did I find one perfect dress, I found two. Iman can handle everything from taking in a seam to a complete overhaul of a dress. I would recommend her shop highly for any mother of the bride or groom.
Pros: Good Selection
I am not someone who likes to write on these blogs, but I was astonished at the positive feedback that Iman's Bridal Couture received. Thinking about the experience I had there makes me want to cry. Siince I am not a very public person, I am going to keep my story to myself; however, Iman will treat you like a princess until she gets your money. Then she will lie and stab you in the back. I am sorry that I am not willing to go into details but it was too much of a painful experience to relive.
Pros: Nice Dresses
Cons: The horrible treatment and deception of Iman
Lke most women I worried about finding a gown that would look beautiful even though I have those parts of the body that are less then perfect. I came prepared with all kinds of ideas after searching countless birdal magazines of what gown what make me look like those birdes in all the magazines (gulp, I hoped). I tried on "my vision",( UH OH,) then Iman said "here this will be perfect for you". She saw my face, (I looked at her as if she were showing me the bride of Frankenstiens' dress) Iman said "don't worry, we'll change the color for your wedding, just put it on". I did.
I could have cried from relief. The dress made me look 10 pounds thinner. It was everything I could have wanted in a dress and more then I could have imagined. Iman's eye for a woman's body is her gift. Along, with an eye for detail and personal sense of responsibility and pride in her work, I'man's Bridal is the only place I would suggest a bride or any one come for a gown. She will figure it out, no matter what. My aunt was with me the day Iman showed me my gown. We both knew that the bridal angels had led us to this incredible woman. A shop in 2009 whose customer service is based on integrity, pride in doing excellent work and a love for what she does. Thank you, t hank you, thanks you Iman!
Pros: Integrity-I'mans word is as solid as a legal contract
I cannot believe the positive reviews this place has received after my horrific experience there.
I went to pick up a few bridesmaid dresses. Iman was helping another bridal party, so I patiently waited until she was finished. They left about 10 minutes later. When I told Iman I was here to pick up the dresses she told me that the girl who gets the dresses was not there and I was going to have to wait 15 to 30 minutes!
As Iman was doing nothing and just sitting behind her desk, I asked if she could get the dresses for me because I had 2 people waiting in the car. Her reply: "That's not my job." I was pretty stunned. Then I asked if she was the owner and she said that she hires her employees so she can point at them and tell them what to do! At some point my 2 friends came in to see what was taking me so long. We all tried to politely convince her to get the dresses. After being told that she hoped we didn't raise our children the way we were raised she called down an employee that was helping another party and made her get my dresses. I do hope that that girl realizes she does not have to work for such a tyrant.
There was another employee who stood next to Iman and also did nothing to help our situation. I will be sure that no one I know goes to Iman. What a horror show!
The icing on the cake, the dresses were gigantic on everyone. Another bridesmaid called to complain and Iman told her that these dresses were known to run very large. I know they order them larger than your size so you can get it fitted perfectly, but I can't understand why she didn't take this into account when ordering them.
Pros: Example: best croissants in town
No one can imagine how I've made it through this nightmare!
I went to Bridal Couture for my wedding gown. After leaving a deposit of 60% of the total cost of my gown (including potential alterations) and my mom's and maid's gowns I called to find out when I should schedule my first fitting to find out that they were CLOSED!
I lost my mind...My girlfriend told me to just move on and find a new gown. My wedding was is in 3 months!
After crying my eyes out I wanted to go to sleep and my fiancee always leaves News 12 Long Island on before bed to watch the weather. God must have known what to do because while he was in the shower I saw a story about two brides in my same position. Their angel...Iman saved the day. I figured, why not? Give it a try!
I called to schedule an appointment with her and made one for later that week. I googled "Iman Bridal Couture" and saw lots of reviews, both good and bad. I wanted my dress and figured I wouldn't lose anything by meeting with her to see if she could help me like she helped the others.
She didn't only help me, she saved the day! She took care of everything! She contacted the 3 different manufacturers for my gown, my mom's and bridesmaids! She offered her services for alterations! She totally got everything back in check so that I could focus on the big picture -- my wedding!
God bless Iman and her staff. They are a godsend! If you don't go there then you'll never know what you're missing! Trust me...She's helping 52 other brides in my same position! I only wish that I went to her from the get-go!
Never judge a book by its cover (with all those negative reviews)! You might miss a great story!
Pros: Willing to work with you no matter what!
I can't describe how grateful and appreciative we are to Iman. i've tried many stores before reaching this gem.
she has an excellent selection, and service. Iman customized my wedding gown exactly how I described to her. she is an amazing designer with a great staff to compliment her talents. I highly recommend everyone to her shop. the shop design is an romantic & elangant decor. simply lovely..... I was extremely please with my gown and the service.
I got married this summer and went to Iman after countless recommendations from people I know. It is a beautiful boutique with amazing gowns! Iman and her entire staff were so great! I had an idea of the dress that I wanted and they actually created it for me. Iman and Soluvia helped me to make many decisions in customizing my dream dress. They were not only professional, but incredibly sweet. My dress did not fit when it came in and I was frustrated and a little bit upset. They promised that the dress would be perfect and they were absolutely right! The day of my wedding I could not believe how perfect my dress looked and how comfortable it was! Iman truly cares about her clients and makes everyone feel important and special. This personal experience is not typical at larger bridal stores. My entire experience at Iman Bridal Couture was wonderful!!!
Pros: Personal service, beautiful shop, great selection of dress, helpful staff
I just got married last month and cannot express how happy I am with my experience at Iman's. She and her staff were wonderful and they made everything perfect, not only for me but my entire entourage. Everyone adored their gowns but they fell in love with Iman, Teresa, Benita...her entire staff!
She is not your typical sales person, she makes sure she makes ALL your dreams come true. I have refered a countless number of people there = brides, sweet 16-ers, prom-goers, everyone and anyone who needs her services and they all call me thanking me for the referral.
I can't wait to visit Iman again for another dress. I'm waiting for another event!
Wow, people can be malicious! After reading these reviews I am appaled at how untrue and slanderous these allegations are. Here's my fairytale story and it's ALL TRUE! Back in 2000 my sister stumbled upon Iman's Bridal Couture just to look around. She went to other places and returned to Iman's because of her wonderful service and professionalism. My sister, mother, bridal party and aunts all got their dressed from Iman's. She even came to the house to dress my sister! When it was my turn to walk down the aisle, Iman personally helped me select the gown of my dreams and I was elated. She was kind, patient and understanding even though when I started I was confused and indecisive. Fitting after fitting she took the time to perfect what I wanted and explained every last detail to the seamstress working on my magnificent gown. Fittings were so much fun because again everyone became a client of Iman's. You cannot imagine how happy I was with my gown and not only did she show up at my house to dress me but she also came to the reception to bussle my dress! Now that is dedication and professionalism, so much in fact that I refer EVERYONE to her and have NEVER heard a negative response. When my daughter was born I asked Iman to create her Christening gown out of an old gown I had hanging in my closet. Needless to say it was spectacular! She even made her a matching cape! Most recently my youngest sister got married and we ALL went there with ear-to-ear grins on our faces just to be back in Iman's again. Not only did my sister score two gorgeous gowns but my mother, my sister's mother-in-law, the bridal party, my aunts and a number of guests became clients of Iman's. If you're looking for a chop-shop type of salon go somewhere else. Iman and staff are ready willing and able to make all your dreams come true - after all isn't this something we've all been dreaming about since we were little girls? AMAZING EXCELLENT SUPERB MAGNIFICENT PROFESSIONAL WONDERFUL ONE-IN-A-MILLION!
Pros: Beautiful shop, great staff, very professional, reasonable prices
Cons: They're closed on Mondays
Every girl growing up has dreams about there wedding and especially there wedding dress.......Iman and her staff made my experience and dress more then what I had envisioned. From the time I walked in I knew this was a place that I wanted to get my dress from. When you walk in you get the feeling like you are home. What I liked most about the place was her selection of classy, elegant dresses but that I also had the option of her to design a dress. It was not like the big places that overwhelm you that have tons of people in them and you cannot get someone to pay attention to you let alone find a dress. How many places can you go and be the only one in there looking at dresses and have the owner working with you. Iman knows what looks good on you and has class. If a dress does not suit you she will help you find one that is right for your body type....you are not buying a dress from a sales person you are getting a dress from a designer. From the dress to the shoes to the veil, down to your jewelry she will help make you look like the most elegant classy bride out there. She outfitted my bridesmaids and mother as well. All of us looked stunning to say the least. When I look back at my pictures I still get chills looking at how wonderful we all looked
Iman and staff helped to make my wedding day as amazing as I had always dreamed it would be.
I would highly recommend Iman's bridal if you are looking for honest, friendly, caring, one on one service.
Believe me....she will not let you walk down the aisle if you don't look perfect and she will do anything to make sure you do....
Just got engaged, went to Iman to look for gowns. Came to city search to see if any reviews... The bad reviews are way too angry, the good reviews seem like advertisements or attacks on those who left unhappy remarks... sounds like an employee to me. Very unprofessional, which leads me to believe the bad reviews. BUT to do what citysearch is made for... Large selection, prices are reasonable. Chix boutique. Quality of work after gown is ordered, unknown.
Pros: large selection
Cons: seems like some drama may be involved...
I never post on citysearch, but felt compelled to after the great experience I had at Iman. The three staff I interacted with were such a pleasure! Iman definitely knows what she is talking about! I was there for a bridesmaid dress fitting, but perused the wedding gowns and the selection is incredible and prices aren't bad either. The ambiance in the victorian-style house boutique is very warm and comfortable -- this is the type of place with personalized service you want . I've been in a number of weddings, and this boutique tops the charts in my book! Maybe the poster below was upset b/c she had to go up a size in her dress?! I highly recommend Iman for bridesmaids and brides!
Pros: Great service, adorable boutique
Cons: Difficult to find! (Look for the white picket fence)
Hi everyone, I don't know about everyone else but I had the best experience when I went to Iman's salon.
Their sales staff was so friendly and patient with me....especially since I was a Bridezilla and no other salon could take my sh... At Iman's I was treated like family and "NOT" just another sale.
Iman was honest with me from the beginning telling me what looked good for my body and what didn't!
I appreciated the fact that she didn't "YES'me to death just to make me buy the dress and let me tell you...I was a b... on wheels. I know I wasn't easy to deal with however Iman made my experience worth all the money in the world and I would advise you all not to listen to anyone's review but go see for yourselves and judge.
Pros: Service, Patience, & Honesty!!!!
Cons: So far so good...none to report.
My sister and I just bought a wedding dress here. Sales staff was so sweet, prices were great and Iman herself was so accomidating to help my sister find the prefect dress in her budget. You can tell that Iman really cares about the brides that come in to her store. We felt at home, not being "sold" on anything and most of all relaxed about making such a big decision. We highly recomend visiting this store- beautiful dresses too!!
Great staff, very responsive, helpful and not at all snobby. They made us feel very very comfortable. I recommend whole heartedly.
Pros: great staff, decent prices
