I am not sure what your budget is but the White Dress by the Shore is a great store. http://www.thewhitedressbytheshore.com  Good designers, lots of sample sales, and bridesmaid dress wedding gown alternatives.

Hi there!

I’m not sure how far you’re willing to go or what your budget is, but I have heard good things about Mariella Creations in Rocky Hill, and The Plumed Serpent in Westport. I was on a budget, and I found some great dresses at a consignment shop that sells new dresses (and has designers like Jim Hjelm and Melissa Sweet): Brides To Be in Glastonbury.

I have three friends who bought their dresses from The Bridal Suite in Stamford, CT.

I bought my dress at The White Dress by the Shore in Clinton, CT.  A great selection, good atmosphere, and the salespeople are very nice and not at all snobby.  I also went to The Plumed Serpent in Westport, CT, and while I found their selection to be a little beyond my budget, the customer service was wonderful, and my saleslady let me take my time and let me try on almost every dress they had!

For a lower budget you can try Sukran’s Bridal in Westport.  The place is totally disorganized and filled with girls getting their prom dresses, but the customer service was good.  I didn’t like their selection, but the owner is usually willing to go down on the prices so you can get a good deal there.

I’ll second Mariella’s – they have a huge selection.  Make an appointment ahead of time – I called to make one and got put on a waiting list!!  They also include alterations, if I remember correctly, with the price of the dress.  I tried on a few there but they were just a little out of my price range.  I’m not too sure of names, but google shops in Meriden – there are quite a few.

Love Me Two Times in Taftville – They didn’t have really anything in size 6 or smaller but they had a ton of great dresses at a discount in other sizes. They get a lot of them from New York and most have never been worn. You don’t need an apt. It is a lot of a dress shopping experience but it was nice.

Fairy Tales in Glastonbury – they were great. I called really last minute and they got me right in. They had a good amount to choose from but most were over my tiny budget.

Brides to be in Glastonbury – they were really great! I didn’t end up finding what I was looking for but I will definitely go back to see what else they get in. They have everything from affordable to major designer dresses. While I was there I didn’t realize it but they had closed. They never even mentioned it and actually kept trying to find me a dress. They are the sweetest people.

Of Course David’s Bridal in Manchester

Camille Bridal in West Hartford – They had some really nice stuff. I tried on a lot but they didn’t have anything that was really me. Dresses start at $1,500 there. I did feel pressure to buy something and I still get things in the mail asking me to come back. But they were nice and had some great dresses.

Does anyone know anywhere else in CT?
