I cannot thank Ferri Formals enough for all that they have done for my daughter and getting her that "Special Dress" for her homecoming! MaryLu went out of her way for us to find that Perfect Dress that my daughter had to have!! It was quick and they called you back like they said they would and the best part was they managed to get "The Dress"!! Thank you so much and Homecoming will now be PERFECT thanks to Ferri Formals!!

I always worry about buying wedding dresses online but Ferri Formals & Bridal was an easy to search site. Good selection of dresses
Found what I was looking for. But, no measurement guides on site? I had to use the manufacturers guide to know the approximate size of the dress I needed. But anyway, that is ok.

Horrible service. Made eye contact with several staff members who continued in idle chit chat amongst each other and a customer. Was in the store for quite a while and was completely IGNORED. Would NEVER go back or spend a penny there. I do not reccomend at all and wish I could give 0 stars.

I had a wonderful experience with Ferri??s. They had a great selection of beautiful gowns with a nice range of prices. Everyone in the store was very pleasant and down to earth. Celeste was so sweet in helping me find a unique gown that fit my personality. The atmosphere of the store is one of a team oriented family. Throughout my time with Ferri??s I felt that it was not about the money but rather about me finding exactly what I needed for my wedding with no pressure but only kindness from their end. A special thank you to the owner Mary Lou; who shared much of her time and patience with me, she is a hardworking and sweet woman. It is no wonder that Ferri??s runs as great as it does with a team like theirs.

They have great service and a wide variety of wedding gowns, mother of the bride dresses, bridesmaid dresses and even tuxes for the guys! Love the private Vera Wang studio too - it really makes you feel pampered.

Ferri Formals gave me wonderful customer service and provided expert advice. I was looking for a formal dress for a special occasion and I am so glad they were recommended. There was a huge selection and I even found the color I was looking for. They custom fit my gown and "I was the belle at the ball."

HORRIABLE.... It was all fun and games until it came time for alterations. Three seperate visits and they still couldent get it right. I am more than disappointed I am down right pi**ed off. They were rude and did not care about my briadsmaids or my self. Between the six of us we spent close to $10,000 there with the staff asking me, "what do you want me to do about it!" I want you to do your job and make our dresses fit!!!!!

Note from Erin S.

Thank you all at Ferri Formals and Bridals for your help with picking out my wedding gown and accessories. I felt my most beautiful on my wedding day. There was not one guest that didn't tell me how gorgeous I looked. The veils, hair comb, and earrings all looked wonderful together. My guests thought the dress was perfect for me and they thought it came from NYC! :-) Thank you for making my dream a reality. Special thanks to Erin, she really listened to me and helped me put the whole look together. I will definitely be recommending your shop to friends in the future!

I would not recommend doing business here. If you need bridesmaid dresses, go somewhere else even if it is more expensive... Their costumer service is the worse I have seen!
I ordered all 11 of my bridesmaids dresses here.
They charged different bridesmaids different prices for the same alterations! My one bridesmaid got her dress tightened, cups put in and also got bone and was charge $85... my other bridesmaids just got her dress tightened and cups put in and they tried charging them $106! I spoke with the owner and she would not give me an explanation as to why this happened... I
If I were to do this all over again, I would of gone to Birds of Paradise in Saratoga! Or anywhere else for that matter.

Please do not go to this place! They treat you fine as long as they want your business-as soon as you pay for your dress(es) they start the games, charging different prices for alterations, making up arrival dates, losing your list of bridesmaids...
It was a terrible experience, very stressful and very embarassing in from of my bridesmaids who were spending so much $ on their dresses!
I was VERY unhappy!

My experience shopping for my wedding dress at Ferri Formal??s was wonderful! The ladies are terrific ?? very accommodating and pleasant. Penny altered my dress and made it look as though it was created especially for me Since purchasing my dress I have referred all my friends to make Ferri??s their first stop when shopping for a dress. It was a great experience.

My mother and I found our dream gowns at Ferri??s. The service we received was way beyond my expectations, and the whole experience of finding my wedding gown was what I??ve always dreamt of. My gown was so unique, and I still haven??t seen one that even compares to it! I??ve received so many compliments on its beauty and uniqueness. The staff was so friendly and courteous to us that it seemed like we??ve known them for years. I felt like a one-of-a-kind bride.

We??d done almost all the Capital District prom dress shops, plus the internet and even been to London and Paris,somehow overlooking the local specialist shop. By the time we got to Ferri Formal, we gave a stern ????we??re just looking? they let us look, un-hassled. I quickly realized this was the best selection we??d seen in our price bracket ($200-$800). I was impressed by the quality workmanship and sumptuous materials, beating internet and other shop??s prices. Thye also had the best priced sales rack I'd seen. I relaxed on the chaise longue allowing my picky prom princess to scrutinize. After leaving we agreed that this was the shop.

We went back 3 or 4 times with me playing the difficult customer; each time, the staff, from Miss to Madame, were extremely nice. I saw a selection of people come and go, with no hint of discrimination from the staff on budget, age, size or race. Some were repeat satisfied customers but everyone received the same courteousness. It was obvious that the staff were experienced in catching on to the desired look and what suited. The ??oohs?? and ??aahs?? and ??do you like that??? were genuine, with no overbearing push to make a sale. One busy day became a boudoir fashion show, we were having a ball, with the mature customers modelling tips on presentation. It was how shopping should be. It was great experiencing the different tastes and styles, while of course everyone ended up looking happy and beautiful.

Parting with the dress through donation will be difficult- but then, Ferri Formal are bound to have something for Senior Gala!

I had a wonderful experience at Ferri Formals. Working with Marylu was a pleasure. She was so kind and helpful and gave me the experience that every bride deserves. My mother lives out of state and was not able to make it to the shop but Marylu and the rest of the staff were so warm and welcoming. I purchased my dress along with five bridesmaids dresses and three flower girl dresses and they all look beautiful. If your looking for a good bridal experience, I would definitely recommend going to Ferri Formals!

Awful. A flower-girl dress for my wedding was purchased at this store. A beautiful $250 dress, which in my opinion is quite a pricey dress for a three year old...but it was so beautiful we went with it! We ordered this dress in January with an early April delivery date. Needless to say a week out from my wedding we have no dress...and no one from the store can provide a decent answer as to why there was such a delay. My bridesmaid who is the little girl's mother tried for nearly six weeks to get a straight answer as to when the dress would arrive....to no avail. When she indicated that she was nervous about the arrival and alterations because the dress was quite expensive the owner informed her that $250 was in fact not an expensive flower girl dress. 10 days before the wedding my friend was returned her deposit and we actually purchased a lovely dress for $25 and received excellent customer service...at Burlington Coat Factory! :) But my friend continues to get phone calls since the dress came in (1 week before the wedding) to see the "lovely" dress. I guess I would just advise people that the communication when a mistake is made is awful. Either you receive no phone call, have to keep following up yourself or get a different answer from different people in the store. I purchased some accessories at another bridal store in the area and when a mistake was made the owner immediately called me to let me know about the problem and to give me options. No such effort was ever made by Ferri Formals in this situation.I just do not think this is a stress any bride needs a week before their wedding, especially when the dress is purchased so far in advance.

I had a wonderful wedding experience at Ferri Formals and Bridals. The staff couldn??t have been more helpful and accommodating. Marylu and Lena are extremely knowledgeable and professional. On my first trip to the shop I tried on several gowns ranging from bargain priced, all the way up to Vera Wang. They have gowns for every style and budget. There were so many gorgeous dresses but I still hadn??t found ??the one?. Then Marylu called to tell me that she had just gotten in a new gown that she thought I might like. I went in to try it on and knew right away that this was the dress I would be wearing on my wedding day. Marylu and her staff were very attentive and went out of their way to help me find the perfect wedding dress and accessories. I ordered the dresses for my bridesmaids there as well. Three of my bridesmaids live out of town and the staff was very flexible when it came to scheduling dress fittings and pick-ups. One of my bridesmaids was planning a wedding around the same time as I was. She was so impressed with the service that my bridal party received that she chose to purchase her bridesmaids dresses at Ferri??s as well, even though she lives in North Carolina. My mother is a plus-size woman who is very uncomfortable wearing dresses. Marylu put my mother at ease and helped her select a stunning Mother of the Bride gown that she felt beautiful in. All of the gowns, mine especially, were absolutely perfect! I couldn??t have been happier with my experience and would recommend Ferri Formals and Bridals to any bride.

I went in to try it on and knew right away that this was the dress I would be wearing on my wedding day. Marylu and her staff were very attentive and went out of their way to help me find the perfect wedding dress and accessories. I ordered the dresses for my bridesmaids there as well. Three of my bridesmaids live out of town and the staff was very flexible when it came to scheduling dress fittings and pick-ups. One of my bridesmaids was planning a wedding around the same time as I was. She was so impressed with the service that my bridal party received that she chose to purchase her bridesmaids dresses at Ferri?s as well, even though she lives in North Carolina. My mother is a plus-size woman who is very uncomfortable wearing dresses. Marylu put my mother at ease and helped her select a stunning Mother of the Bride gown that she felt beautiful in. All of the gowns, mine especially, were absolutely perfect! I couldn?t have been happier with my experience and would recommend Ferri Formals and Bridals to any bride.

I had a wonderful wedding experience at Ferri Formals and Bridals. The staff couldn?t have been more helpful and accommodating. Marylu and Lena are extremely knowledgeable and professional.

Pros: Personalized service, great selection, attention to detail

My experience at Ferri Formals was wonderful. My mom and I shopped at a few bridal shops but our experience elsewhere was not good. One establishment was extremely rude; the other arrogant. I worked with Marylu and Patti and found the perfect gown. There were so many beautiful gowns to choose from - it was a tough choice but they helped me by giving me so much time and they were sooo!!! patient. I also purchased my veil, bridesmaids dresses and tuxedos. My wedding is in two weeks. Everything is great; the 8 bridesmaids dresses were altered beautifully - Lina is fabulous! I'm fully confident the tuxedos will be fine - Thank you Ferri Formals for making me so happy!!!!

Ferri Formals and Bridals had an amazing selection of dresses. I had been to few other bridal shops, but their selection of dresses didn't seem to compare to Ferri Formals. Unlike, other bridal shops, the dresses were more spread out so they were easy to look at. The staff was very helpful and once I found my dress, they worked with me to make my look just perfect. I would definitely recommend Ferri Formals and Bridals to any bride that is currently looking for a wedding dress. They also have great dresses for moms and bridesmaids.

Pros: friendly staff, great selection of wedding dresses

Marilou, the owner, and Penny, my seamstress, were nothing less than fantastic, accommodating and caring. I found the dress of my dreams at Ferri Formals. It was elegant and in my price range. Marilou has many gowns both high end designers as well as more moderately priced gowns. She carries a range of sizes so all brides both petite and plus size are able to try on dream gowns. I found in working with Marilou that is was no problem to order a dress in an extended size and no problem to have it in time for the wedding. The fittings were amazing. Penny listened to my vision of altering the dress to create sleeves that draped to the back of the dress similar to an attached cape. This was exactly what I had invisioned and she did it all over night! The custom designs I made on the dress were extra in cost, but not overpriced in my opinions. Everyone at my wedding wanted to know where I got my gown. Penny and Marilou made my gown and my wedding day come to life. The whole experience was just perfect.

Ferri Formals gave me the most personal and detailed attention when buying my wedding gown. They have an extensive and beautiful selection of wedding gowns and bridesmaid dresses. Their staff was kind, helpful, and knowledgeable and made my dress fittings comfortable and fun! To top it off, they pretty much had to rebuild the dress I bought since it was too small and the work they did made the dress that much more beautiful and unique. They really gave me extraordinarily personal attention and I would recommend them to anyone buying a wedding gown or bridesmaid dress. They became an integral part of my wedding planning experience- I wouldn't have gone anywhere else!

Pros: Fabulous service, selection

Like many other brides I've spoke with, I had a terrible experience at Ferri Formals. The staff (especially the owner) is extremely rude, pretentious, unorganized, and downright nasty. Sales slips are often lost, alterations are outrageously expensive and poor quality, attention from the staff is rushed and impersonal.
