I had a wonderful experiene at La Bella Moda. I went everywhere looking for my wedding dress from the high end stores, including stores in New York to the low end stores. I was not happy anywhere I had looked. Someone mentioned to try La Bella Moda. From the time I walked in, I was greeted by the warm friendly staff. I mentioned that I had been unsuccessful in finding the right dress. They assured me they would find "the dress of my dreams." The first dress they brought me, I fell in love with. I tried on many more, but the first one had me. I came back the next day with my mom and we both knew that it was the one. Not only did I get my dress there my bridesmaids did also. All of our dresses were ordered to our size's. We were all very happy. I highly recommend this store to anyone that is looking for a great place to shop.

I had a great experience at LaBella Moda. My sales girl was Tracy and she was fabulous! She gave her honest opinon about the gowns I was trying on and made many helpful suggestions. I found a gorgeous dress and the price was fantastic.

I feel horrible that some many people have had such a bad experience at L Bella Moda but mine has been good so far. I have been dealing with Kathy and she is great she has been nothing but helpful so I suggest to ask for her if you read these bad reviews but still want to go there she is so sweet and nice.

Just got off the phone with this place and found the experience very unpleasant. I had several dress numbers, to find out if they carried them before I schlepped out to try them on. I only got through one -- she didn't have access to the numbers and had to have me describe it and then she went to look for it. Once she said she did have it, she asked when the wedding was. When I said 3 months away, she scolded me. "Well, you have to order it!" Gee, thanks. That's why I'm calling. I found her very pushy and rude. Way to make a bad impression in 2 minutes of "service."!

COMPLETE SCAM!!! I agree with Suzy C. This place ordered a size too big and then charged me so much to get it altered. When I tried on the dress, it was 4 sizes too big, and when I called to tell them they needed to fix it and without charge they asked me if I had lost any weight. If I had lost 4 dress sizes in a month, I think I would have been happy and I WAS NOT. She then proceeded to tell me that I called in the measurements, when I actually went to their store for the measurement.I was so unimpressed with the attitude and the woman trying to find any excuse to blame it on me. The people were rude and completely unhelpful. I would not recommend this place to anyone. They should be out of business for treating their customers so bad.

I had the WORST experience at La Bella Moda. I am an event planner and marketing professional, and I know the good vendors from the bad ones, and La Bella Moda is a BAD one. I got my fitting in December 2008 for a bridesmaid dress- I had to wait over 20 minutes for a simple sizing, and the women there were rude and dismissive. Not only was the store incredible small, they are incompetent. Then, they got my measurements wrong, charged me extra for a dress that is way too big for me. LA Bella Moda is infamous for discounting dresses, but sizing them too big, so that they could make up for the discount with the tailoring. What a RIPOFF. I found out a few days later, a story of a friend's mother sued the shop for cutting the dress wrong, and not replacing it. Finally, they never called my own mother back who is the mother of the groom as she wanted to get a dress there. If you need a good bridal shop, go to Country Bride in North Wales-- great service, wide selection and friendly accommodating staff. I am NOT taking the dress to be tailored there, as I am using Rosa in Blue Bell, who is legendary for her intricate work and professionalism. In a recession, who has time for this NONSENSE?

You either love this place or hate this place... My experience is so far so good... I am getting my bridal gown here and all of the bridesmaid dresses here too.. They are getting fitted this weekend, so I will let you know how that goes! The lady w/ the blonde hair ( i forget her name) was really really sweet...

Seems as though some of you have had a rough time. Maybe I'm just a bit more laid back than most...but I've found La Bella Moda to be a great place.

I'm a maid of honor in a wedding this November...and the women there were really nice to our entire group. Our dresses came in early and everything has been running smoothly. I go for a fitting this weekend...so we'll see how it goes and I'll write an update after.

Rude, terrible and clearly I'm not making it up since most of the people below me wrote the exact same thing.
I've been the same dress size since college and they kept trying get me to order a dress 2 sizzes bigger than what fit. This was only b/c they wanted me to pay more for the alterations. When I informed them I was getting the size I wanted and any alterations will be going through my neighborhood tailor she grabbed the excess material around my hips and pulled it skin tight and said, "this is what it will look like if someone else does it." Not wanting to make a scene, I said, "I think I will be fine" and got dressed in my regular clothes. The woman who helped me was a cow and I wouldn't EVER let my bridesmaids or mother go in there for a dress. I have no clue how they stay in business.

I have to say that I was a little on edge about looking for my wedding dress at La Bella Moda because of some of the previous reviews. However, I was pleasantly surprised! From the minute I walked in I was treated the way a bride expects to be treated. I was shown whatever type of dress I wished and Linda, the salesperson, listened to what I liked and didn't like. She took my input and teamed it with her experience and helped me find the dress of my dreams along with a perfect veil. Due to her friendliness, she made the whole experience comfortable and effortless. They were able to order the dress and the veil and it should come in less time than other shops had told me. All in all it was a great experience!

This place is awful. It must be a requirement to be a complete biatch to work here. The only person who would ever leave such a positive remark about such a horrific place is someone who has a stake in it.

Bottom line- don't put your bridesmaids through this hell. Go anywhere else.

What planet is Jackie F living on?? Going to La Bella Moda is like seeing a fuzzy little baby bunny sitting on a fluffy white cloud! I feel just like a magical fairy princess each time I enter. Like a beautiful young maiden on a star lit path, on her way to see her brave, strong prince. Jackie F will be lucky to make her way down a dingy muddy road, to meet a prickly porcupine at the end. Never has Bella Moda rained on my parade, like Jackie F says. In fact, Le Bella Moda deserves a parade in it's honor! I would march with pride in the Bella Moda parade! Hip Hip Hooray, Hip Hip Hooray...La Bella Moda is here to stay!! Go to La Bella Moda, all of your dreams will come true!!!

Because I am forever a bridesmaid this was the third time I entered La Bella Moda picking up yet another overdone dress. This was also the third time I was greeted with an unpleasant and condensing attitude from a store employee. In addition to this, my friends have also had many complaints stemming from the demeanor of the staff, poor alterations, and dresses not completed on time. Mistakes happen but there is no reason to treat your customers the way I have seen them treated. I guess a few people have written about the approach La Bella Moda takes on there customers, so I assume it??s simply how they act now! I hope to steer my future engaged friends away from Moda and myself because I never want to deal with that place again. Your wedding is meant to be a happy occasion find a place that will celebrate in your joy not rain on your parade.

La Bella Moda was one of many bridal shops I visited but the first who picked my dresses for me. The woman refused to show me anything until I told her my budget. When I said I hadn't thought much about it she told me then she would only bring me "less expensive" dresses. Instead of me getting to look at everything and decide for myself dresses she thought I would like were brought to me. I had even gone in with a picture of a dress I wanted that their shop supposedly carried and she told me it was out of my price range...don't know how since I hadn't set a budget. The woman was rude and then left us waiting for 30 minutes as she said she was writing my information down and bringing us her business card. When we found her she was helping another customer! We met another bride during our 30 minute wait who was getting all her bridesmaid dresses there and she even told us to get out while we could! It was my first and last trip in the store.

I received terrible service from this shop. All our bridesmaids dresses for my friend's wedding were ordered from LA Bella Moda . I live above Williamsport and I had to get measured at a local REPUTABLE bridal shop. The measurement of my waist was between sizes by one inch and the other measurements were dead on. I called to ask what size La Bella Moda recommended. Someone at the shop told me there is 2 inches of fabric near the zipper that can be let out so I would be ok ordering the smaller size. She asked I if I was placing the order and I informed her that one person would place the order so the material is from the same bolt. I received the dress and when my seamstress went to alter the waist, lo and behold!, no material near the zipper. (less than 1/2 an inch on each side). I called to have La Bella Moda fix the problem and order material and they informed me that this was not their fault. They said that my measurements were not taken there (not driving to Philly), measurements were wrong (reputable bridal shop),maybe I got bigger (not true), I didn't order the dress (see above), my seamstress is incapable of fixing it (not true). So, in addition to the expense of the alterations, now the alterations are more costly because gussets had to be created (Out of material which I had to pay for!). So I authorized a $25.00 charge for material. The girl that ordered the dresses called and said that La Bella Moda is ordering material and lining. So I had to call back again stating that I only need the material. They said they will cancel the order for the lining. Now I check my bank account and GUESS WHAT? LA BELLA MODA CHARGED ME FOR THE SHIPPING OF THE MATERIAL TO FIX THIER MISTAKE BECAUSE SOMEONE TOLD ME THAT THERE WAS ENOUGH EXCESS MATERIAL IN THE DRESS BESIDE THE ZIPPER TO ALTER THE DRESS! I have to pay the shipping charge of $15.90 which I don't think I am entitled to pay. I am STILL waiting for a shipping confirmation number that was supposed to be called in to me yesterday. I would not recommend La Bella Moda to anybody.

PROS: None...maybe cheaper prices.
CONS: Read above...

I just purchased my gown from LaBella Moda. The older women can be a little unfriendly but my sales assoc. was absolutely wonderful. She was very knowledgeable and had a great sense of style. She did not make me feel pressured, just very helpful in making my decision. We had a good experience at the store!

I was nervous about going here after reading all of the reviews, but I was really pleasantly surprised! Although the one older woman at the desk (may have been the manager or owner) wasn't very "warm" she wasn't rude or unprofessional either. Kathy however was great! She was so nice and very patient with me (I went 3-4 times to try on the same 1-2 dresses before I actually bought one!). I felt that she was honest and not just trying to sell me something. I told her what I was looking for and she found it for me. She even contacted the gown company/manufacturer to ask questions that I had about some of the detailing on the gown for me before I bought it. The other saleswomen in the shop were also nice and complimentary even though I wasn't their client. My measurements and sizing suggestions were accurate and on target with the other bridal shops I had been to. I was kind of between a 6 and an 8 and Kathy gave her recommendation, but said that it was my choice what size I chose. Not to mention there was a nice selection of gowns and the prices were far more reasonable than other places I have been to for the EXACT SAME dresses! They offer a 20% discount on bridal gowns and will also discount bridesmaids and mother of the bride dresses (which are a little high) when you bu your wedding gown there. I haven't had any alteratoins yet since I just ordered my dress a few days go, but all in all my experience was great and I found a beautiful dress that fit my glam style. I would recommend it to anyone

My experience at La Bella Moda was very pleasant. I've been to a total of 7 stores in search of the perfect gown and this store was by far the most accommodating. The sales girl was very kind and had the patience of a saint. She spent 2 hours with me and even offered to come in on her day off so I could retry the dress for my mother. When going over the measurements with me she showed me the designers size chart, I fell in between a 6 and an 8, she allowed me to choose the size that would be ordered. I have already recommended the store to a friend!

I had the WORST experience at La Bella Moda. I am an event planner and marketing professional, and I know the good vendors from the bad ones, and La Bella Moda is a BAD one. I got my fitting in December 2008 for a bridesmaid dress- I had to wait over 20 minutes for a simple sizing, and the women there were rude and dismissive. Not only was the store incredible small, they are incompetent. Then, they got my measurements wrong, charged me extra for a dress that is way too big for me. LA Bella Moda is infamous for discounting dresses, but sizing them too big, so that they could make up for the discount with the tailoring. What a RIPOFF. I found out a few days later, a story of a friend's mother sued the shop for cutting the dress wrong, and not replacing it. Finally, they never called my own mother back who is the mother of the groom as she wanted to get a dress there. If you need a good bridal shop, go to Country Bride in North Wales-- great service, wide selection and friendly accommodating staff. I am NOT taking the dress to be tailored there, as I am using Rosa in Blue Bell, who is legendary for her intricate work and professionalism. In a recession, who has time for this NONSENSE?

Pros: Close to my house

Cons: Everything Else

I loved the wedding selections the shop has. It has pretty much has all of my favorite styles after shopping at 20 plus bridal shops in new York and Philly. The price is reasonable and in most cases were the cheapest. However, except for my dress. I totally trusted them and paid for t without checking at other shops first. And I found out their reduced price is still 10% more expensive than other places. I thought they will match it but they didn't for the basis that they provide good alterations etc. So j am cool with that. But when it comes to alterations, they denied that they already told me the price and now is charging me a much higher amount for that! Plus, they became so rude, yelling, screaming on the phone. In the end, j just can't wait to get over with this. Too bad! I really suggest all re employees there take mandatory class on anger management and basic customer service

I got my bridesmaids dresses at this shop. The owner of the shop was extremely nice and helpful, and all of her employees were very pleasant. The alterations specialist that they contract, however, was rude, unhelpful and charges grossly overcharges. After one of my bridesmaids asked her to fix something she had done to the dress, the alterations woman took it upstairs and brought it back 15 minutes later with the worst fix possible. Once we complained to her and the store owner, she took it upstairs and did the job correctly. She also grossly overcharged, did work I did not ask for and then charged me for it, and charged me to press the dress when it definitely did not look pressed. She also had originally quoted me one price, then changed it to a significantly higher price. I would recommend taking your dresses elsewhere to be altered even if you do buy your dress from this shop. However, if you do get your dresses worked on there, make her stick to her quotes and watch her closely... It is a shame that she is giving the shop a bad reputation and losing them business, as they shop is nice and the owner is great.

Cons: Alterations specialist, not very large

I read the reviews and felt as though I needed to still give it a try.
I went without my bridesmaids to preview and was surprised.
Not only was the selection the largest in the area but I was well received.
I would suggest making appointment- it is courteous and they can be crowded which may cause a rush feeling. I had a 10am appointment and was there for an hour trying on potential bridesmaid dresses.
The young lady that helped me could not have been more pleasant
She was helpful, knowledgeable and patient. I brought my bridesmaids back and we bought the dresses there. I am not sure what the negativity is about but I did not experience it

Every employee that I have come in contact with at this store has been rude and made me feel rushed and uncomfortable. They act like you are putting them out just to do their job. It is a real shame that a business that is supposed to be helping someone celebrate a special day in their lives can make customers feel so crappy.

I rated this store 5/5 because not only are these women helpful and accomodating, but they are also well educated, honest, respectful, and curteous! I had read these reviews and almost missed out because the reviews I had read were so terrible and all so similar. I believe the new employees are not the ones refrenced in the other reviews and I can gaurantee that you will be pleased! As a Bride, I am stressed out, running around like crazy, and panicked! The women at La Bella were so great in keeping me calm, helping me to relax, showing me a million options, allowing me to take all the time I needed and so much more. PLEASE give the store a shot for yourself before deciding against it. I have purchased my gown, headpiece, and 5 bridesmaid dresses and I cannot be any happier with the service, selection, and location.

i do not understand all of these awful remarks about La Bella Moda. i bought non only my own wedding dress there but my 8 bridesmaids dresses. Everyone was so nice and helpful with everything. i did not think the prices were bad - in fact they are some of the lowest prices i have seen? They match prices from anywhere plus give you the 20% discount that other stores do. If you are looking for a $50 dress - go to davids bridal. These dresses are gorgeous and from top designers and quite frankly i can't beleive i got my dress for the price that i did. Whether you are looking to spend $3000 for a wedding gown or $600 - they have them all. Be wary of all the bad remarks you see everywhere - people only ever want to complain about the bad and never talk about the good. I think this is a great place to get your dresses as well as your bridal party. I have had friends recommend it to me, and i have recommended it to my friends and never heard one bad remark. My advice - make an appt if you want to try dresses on and have someone service you. You cannot be mad if no one helps you when you did not make an appt to let them know you were coming.

I have never had as bad of an experience as I've had here. the sales people made you feel like they couldnt be bothered and they were annoyed with our presence, they were extremely rude and lazy. The dresses are ridiculously overpriced for the type of material the most of them are. I will never go back there even if they were going to give me a free dress thats how nasty those employees are, and it was all of them not just one or two.

My five bridesmaids, mother and I were out looking for gowns this past weekend. I had a list of places I wanted to try, and La Bella Moda was on it. When we came in (at about 2:30 pm) and told the woman at the front desk why we were there, she seemed very annoyed. She said that there were already two brides upstairs and there was no one to help us. She proceeded to say that the manager (owner?) was at a wedding and gave them permission to close early when those two brides were finished. She then added that we could make an appointment to come back another day. We couldn't believe it! We had been to at least 3 other stores before then and they were extremely friendly and accommodating. She turned down 7 potential dress sales b/c she wanted to be able to close early. Well, I am happy to say that we ended up giving our business to Belle of the Ball Bridal in Eagleville. I will never set foot in La Bella again.

I have to say the only reason I gave the dress shop three stars is because I found my dress there and I absolutely love it!! Also when you are looking and trying on dresses they are very super sweet to you because they want your business. So at least that part was an excellent experience. Also, the alterations lady Gemma was very sweet and she made my experience a lot better at La bella Moda. As for the second I bought my dress and decided that is the one I want. The service is horrible and the ALL the people are rude. I called them on it a few times they apologized but then made me feel the same way anytime I called. I know I'm not a crazy detailed person and I'm very easy going. So for them to make me feel like I am bothering them anytime I called was just out of line. Also every sales associate tells you a different price. I have six girls in my wedding and all six got a different price for their dress. Needless to say they matched the lowest one which was pretty cool. They are very very rude to the bridesmaids and even with an appointment made all my girls feel like they were being pains by just being there. I haven't had one good review from any of my girls. The only reason I wanted to get the girls dress there was because of the 20% discount they got for me buying my dress there. I would reccommend if they girls don't mind and your dress isn't too expensive to go somewhere else. If you see soemthing you like there wait before you buy it because many local boutiques have the same designers you just have to call around. This is your speical day it kinda ruins it when the dress shop is rude and you girls are calling you upset that they are so rude...one little thing on top of the many you can make easier for yourself.

I have to say that I was a little on edge about looking for my wedding dress at La Bella Moda because of some of the previous reviews. However, I was pleasantly surprised! From the minute I walked in I was treated the way a bride expects to be treated. I was shown whatever type of dress I wished and Linda, the salesperson, listened to what I liked and didn't like. She took my input and teamed it with her experience and helped me find the dress of my dreams along with a perfect veil. Due to her friendliness, she made the whole experience comfortable and effortless. They were able to order the dress and the veil and it should come in less time than other shops had told me. All in all it was a great experience!

I have nothing but wonderful things to say about La Bella Moda!!! I really cannot beleive the other reviews,to me it can't be true if we are speaking of the same shop!!! Myself and my sister have gotten our wedding gowns from La bella Moda and we could'nt have been more pleased during the process. The owner was wonderful to us,as were the salesgirls. The selection is like nothing in our area, its fabulous! Speaking from true experience-I would highly reccomend La Bella Moda!

I have dealt with this bridal salon on many occasions and all were great experiences. I have been a bride and a bridesmaid working with them and their attitude toward me was always nice. They have a very large selection and helped me to find the perfect dresses. My mother also ordered her dress for my wedding through them less than two months before my wedding and it came in right away when other salons were telling her it would take 2-4 months for the Jovani gown. The seamstress was a bit difficult to understand but did excellent work. The prices were the best in the tri-state area and I spent tons of time on the phone to find the best price. I have also been to many other salons for other weddings and have never had a nice of an experience that I did here. I would highly recomend using them.

I have to agree with a previous poster that this salon is horrible to deal with for anyone but the bride. They are rude to bridesmaids and are purposefully difficult. When you express a concern to them they have no regard for your concerns and they will try to order the wrong dress size if you don't watch them closely. I would have them put something in writing about the size you are ordering and the estimated arrival date. I have also found them to enjoy the drama of a wedding and will add to the drama by working the bride up of little things - like they tell the bride everyone is ordering the wrong size dress, or they will misplace your payment information and then tell the bride you do not really want to order a dress - who needs that drama. If you mention to them this web site and your concern about their ability to handle your order accurately they will tell you all the bridal salons have poor ratings on this forum. I thought they might have a point and researched several other salons and no one had reviews like theirs. This is definately a buyer beware salon. I have heard they have a great selection - but is that really worth all the extra headaches for yourself and your bridal party that they will cause? Good Luck !

Pros: struggling to find one

Cons: everything

The place should not be in business. The sales people are rude and sloppy. There is no computer system to keep orders organized. My experience was terrible and my dress never came in. Yes, never came in and I had to wear a dress that I only 1/2 liked for my wedding. I have been in the same size clothes for about 5 years and when my dress came in 2 sizes to small I was asked by Anna, "Did you gain a bit a weight?" I am fortunately not self conscious about my weight but it still fired me up! My bridesmaids dresses took almost as long as my bridal gown to come in! The one good thing about them is that they have a big selection so my suggestion to you: Go in, take up their time by trying on all the dresses. Once you find the dress you like buy it elsewhere. And, don't let them try to get you by that 20% all dresses, anywhere will do that for you!

I was very happy when I went to la bella moda. I'm getting married in may of '08, and i thought that the bridesmaids selection were great. they have a ton of bm dresses! I forget the girls name who helped me but she knew what she was talking about!...she helped me pick out my wedding gown, and i love it!
I had a great experience there, everyone was very helpful! The only thing that I suggest is make an appointment, they are always very busy.
Hope that this review helps.......good luck!!!

I used La Bella Moda when I got married. I had a really great experience with Betty, my sales associate. However, everyone else there is rude. I didn't have an appt the first time I went, I happened to be visiting my parents nearby and my mom and I decided to go look. When I told them I didn't have an appt they were completely rude and acted as if I was not good enough to be there. That is when Betty swooped in and took care of me. She was wonderful - listened to everything I wanted and found me the perfect dress. I went back a few months later with my maids and Betty proved her self again by finding the perfect dresses for my girls. The seamstress was very pricey, but flexible and good. As far as I know, none of my girls had any trouble with their dresses. Actually three of the five didn't even need alterations.

Since I had a good experience, one of my maids chose to go their for her dress as well as the maids dresses. Her experience has been 100% awful. Everytime she is there they rush her out. Was told her veil would be available for her fitting and it wasn't there. Sales assistant wouldn't even try to find one like it so she could put it on for her fitting. They have gotten the bridesmaids confused several times, I am fearful for what I will get when my dress arrives. Since I live in Baltimore, they have to ship my dress to me - they are charging me $25 to ship it, and it has been 2 weeks since they claimed to have shipped it. I called and was given the run around. I asked for a refund of the $25 and got nothing. I think it is absurd that after spending $4000 myself their, having all of my maids order from them, and now my friend and her wedding party, that they can't show me better customer service.

So, if you must go there, definitely ask to work with Betty. She will shield you from the rest. If something goes wrong, don't bother asking for the manager - she is the worst of all of them. The dresses are what keeps them in business.

Cons: Rude sales assoc and even worse owner. Bad system for keeping track of bridal parties

My best friend is getting married next month and she purchased her bridal gown from La Bella Moda. Not only did they order her the incorrect size (too small) but they failed to order her extra length- which is what the person who originally fitted my best friend and he talked about during the fitting. The sloppy looking, rude sales associate kept putting the blame on my friend, saying that she waited too long to come in for a fitting and she must have gained weight (not true)- they took absolutely none on the responsibility. The owner was in the store at the time but did not come upstairs- where we were fighting with the sales lady. The owner is a coward and was so rude everytime we dealt with her. We also got our bridesmaids dresses there and we were told multiple dates for when the dresses would be in, but every date they told us was wrong. They didn't order the maid of honor her shaw or extra fabric for her straps. All of the bridesmaids are not getting their dresses altered there because we DO NOT TRUST THEM. This place is trapped in the stone age- they DO NOT have a computer for placing orders (they rely on writing the information on sales slips) and their answering machine DOES NOT allow you to leave messages. THIS WAS THE MOST TERRIBLE EXPERIENCE!!! AWFUL CUSTOMER SERVICE!!!STAY AWAY!!

The sloppy looking, rude sales associate kept putting the blame on my friend, saying that she waited too long to come in for a fitting and she must have gained weight (not true)- they took absolutely none on the responsibility. The owner was in the store at the time but did not come upstairs- where we were fighting with the sales lady. The owner is a coward and was so rude everytime we dealt with her. We also got our bridesmaids dresses there and we were told multiple dates for when the dresses would be in, but every date they told us was wrong. They didn't order the maid of honor her shaw or extra fabric for her straps. All of the bridesmaids are not getting their dresses altered there because we DO NOT TRUST THEM. This place is trapped in the stone age- they DO NOT have a computer for placing orders (they rely on writing the information on sales slips) and their answering machine DOES NOT allow you to leave messages. THIS WAS THE MOST TERRIBLE EXPERIENCE!!! AWFUL CUSTOMER SERVICE!!!STAY AWAY!!

Pros: NONE

Cons: EVERYTHING

.

I have never written a review before, but I am going through such a horrible experience with this bridal shop they gave me no other option but to tell others to stay away. This bridal shop has their routine down pat. They worship the ground the bride walks on; however, they could care less about the bridesmaids. Hence the wonderful review by the bride below. I do have to admit that so far out of 7 bridesmaids 4 of us picked up our dresses so far and I am currently the only one with a problem with their service. Maybe they are the bridal shop with the wrong measurements because it seems like them ordering the incorrect size is a common thread...they ordered my dress way too small. Also, they do elude that you gained weight and your measurements have changed, when I lactually lost weight since my measurements were taken. The owner was the one who measured me and she insisted she ordered me the right size. However, I saw the measurements she took and I went online and pulled up the size chart for the designer and they indeed ordered me the incorrect size. So far my problem is still unresolved. It just makes me wonder if they do this on purpose to get money for alterations and ordering more material. I understand that mistakes happen, but if they had better customer service this would not be an issue. Brides, please do not let La Bella Moda mislead you, no matter how nice they are to you. Getting your bridesmaids' dresses here is doing a disservice to your bridesmaids.

I got my wedding dress at La Bella Moda and I had a wonderful experience there from start to finish. I was very surprised to see the terrible reviews on this site, I guess it's usually the people with bad experiences who are motivated enough to write. My dress was ordered correctly, arrived on time, came in as the correct size, etc. The dress and alterations were a little pricey, but not too expensive as far as wedding dresses go and the quality surpassed most other stores. The store itself is very nice and large, with two floors. The owner was extremely nice and even accomodated having my enormous bridal party there to try on dresses. By the time I went with my mom to pick up my dress the final time, the owner even hugged us and kissed us on the cheek before wishing us luck at the upcoming wedding. The seamstress they had was also excellent and quick. I really had a wonderful experience at La Bella Moda and I recommend it to friends.

Me sister was getting married in and we all got measured about 10 months ago. The seamstress came into measure all off us and told me i would be about a size 10 when i heard that i was stunned because i knew i hadn't gained wait to have gone up 6 size since the last time i bought a formal dress which was about 1 year ago. She ( the owner with the hard accent) told me that i was ATLEAST a 10 with my LARGE hips( not true) i hadn't gained a pound in 2 years in fact i lost weight. She was so rude the whole day. The day i went to go pick up my dress i called and said i would be down later that day and she asked me if i had an appointment and i told her i didn't and she then said i had to reschedual and i told her i didn't have any other day i could come and the wedding is less then a week. So then she told me in the RUDEST tone fine just come in then i don't no how long you'll wait. I would never ever recommend this place to anyone that women is soo rudee its a shame for the people who work for her.

What a terrible experience! Not only did I not get the size I ordered, they then told me the alterations would be more than the quote due to there being "sooo much extra material. When I told them i might have to go elsewhere, the rude woman on the phone basically suggested that it might be hard to schedule a pick up time before the wedding. My already overpriced dress was being held hostage? I basically had to lie to them on the phone, just to pick up the dress before the alteration appointment, so i can take it elsewhere. Stay away from this store, no dress style is worth this nightmare.

My good friend sent us here only because it was the only place in the area that carried the dress she had chosen. All 8 of us were measured 7 months ago and almost all of have had problems. I was supposed to get a size 10 or even a 12 to be able to have it taken in. I ended up with a way too tight size 8. Then I was told I could not order a different dress and they would need to put panels. I was made to feel like it was my fault and I was some overweight slob. (which I am not) I literally was in tears at the shop. I just left after my FOURTH fitting and the dress is now too large in some places and they are trying to charge me $205 in alterations for a $159 dress. The wedding is in 4 days and I still do not have a dress. The saleslady with the thickest accent was horrible to me. They were rude to alot of the other girls and ordered varying sizes that did not match the orders. Save yourself the insulting experience and go where your business is valued and respected!

I had a very bad experience in this shop this past weekend. One of the sales women was VERY RUDE to my daughter and me. I came to find out from another person she was the OWNER!! There was 1 bride and 7 bridesmaids there ready to purchase dresses and she treated me so badly. I wish we could have all just walked and not returned, unfortunately, the bride bought her dress there, and she wants us all to buy from the same place. I am stuck going there. It would have been great to walked out and tell the owner that she just kissed 2,000+ away with her RUDENESS!!

I have to add though, the sales women that helped us directly (currently pregnant) was WONDERFUL! She even apologized to me for her managers rudeness.

STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACE!!!!
