I had a pretty good experience with One Enchanted Evening. It’s in Fairport – in Packett’s landing. They were very accommodating to me and my mom and Maid/Matron of Honor and let me try on TONS of dresses. The sales girl wasn’t pushy and geninunely wanted me to find something I loved. Their prices are reasonable. They carry a lot of Maggie Sottero, but a lot of more unique dresses as well. The only downside is that they don’t do the alterations in-store, but they do recommend a few seamstresses in the area that they’ve worked with, and they do still press your gown before the wedding. Good luck and happy hunting!

I am in a wedding in Rochester in a few weeks.  The bride got her dress, and our bridesmaids dresses, at Alfred Angelo.  She seemed happy with them.  You can browse their styles here: http://www.alfredangelo.com   Good luck!

I went ot a bunch of the stores in Rochester, and ended up buying at Julianas.  Susan, the sales associate, was incredible and it was a wonderful experience. No pressure or anything.

Also went to one a little farther down the street and had a bad experience.  Hard pressure tactics and a rude sales associate.

 I would highly recommend Julians though!

I got my dress at Bridal Belle in Henrietta, right across from The Gem Lab.  I had a very good experience with them.

I am a very busty woman, and I knew exactly what I wanted in my dress.  I wanted sleeves, no train, and a lower cut neckline.  I went to about 15 places without seeing a thing I liked, I even had a few sales people just tell me they couldn’t help me without showing me a thing.

When I went to Bridal Belle they were friendly, accomodating, my sales woman was just great!  Also, they do hemming at no charge.

Here’s their phone number: (585) 334-5057 and address: 4061 W Henrietta Road.

Good luck!

When I went dress shopping I went just about everywhere.  I didn’t get my dress at Juliann’s.  Expensive, if I remember correctly, but they were nice there.  I also went to a place down the road.  They were not nice.  Can’t remember the name.  I think I ran into some rude people at Jaqueline’s too.  Bella You is on E. Ridge.  It looks like a hole in the wall, but the gals are nice.  I went to Alfred Angelo when it was Bridal Hall.  That place was nice.  I would reccomend avoiding David’s Bridal.  I also went to Bridal Belle and thought they were nice as well.

I know you probably have already went dress shopping but I bought mine at Alfreda Angelo.  It was great, they had great service.  Ask for Ginny she worked miracles for me.  I live in SC so I only had 3 days to plan my wedding and buy my dress when I went back to Buffalo.  But I would definitely look there.  My dress is not availiale online or in catalogs, the dress is only limited to a certain amount of stores and a limited quantity of them.  so you will get a one of a kind.

I went to Antoinette’s in Canandaigua, and didn’t have the greatest experience.  One Enchanted Evening in Fairport was great, but depending on what size you are, it’s difficult to try on all the dresses you’re interested in.  Heart to Heart in Shortsville (right off the thruway on route 21) was great…huge selection of gowns, bridesmaid dresses, and mom dresses.  I ended up getting mine at David’s Bridal….I would definitely recommend them, especially the one in Henrietta (my salesgirl was Nancy)…but don’t get your alterations done there.  Happy shopping!!

I went to Juliana’s too. It is the most beautiful bridal shop I have ever been to. Susan is a doll to work with and although they do carry designer and couture dresses, they also carry a number of more realistic brands like Watters and Watters as well. In the long run, they don’t really care how much you spend, Susan just wants you to have a memorable experience and get what you dreamed of.

I have been to several but chose Heart To Heart Bridal as the top shop in the Rochester area, although they are in Manchester which is only about 20 minutes from Rochester.  They are very accomodating, and they include the alterations in the price and they are done on the premises by the owner!
