If I could give Bridal Exclusives 0 starts I really would. When I first went to Bridal Exclusives I was so excited and Nicole, who helped me was ABSOLUTELY amazing. I found my dress and wanted it in diamond white...I recieved a call from someone that my dress didn't come in diamond white so I said let's do white...My wedding colors are BLACK AND WHITE! When I came in for my fitting my dress was DARK IVORY and my veil was diamond white. It was all wrong. The owner was there, which I warn you to stay away from...He was trying to convince me that the dress looked better on me than white would. I understand that I am fair, so in a way ivory does look better but that wasn't what I ordered, my wedding was based on black and white and everything I had bought was white...If I wanted an ivory dress I would have ordered ivory. The owner Steve, then proceeded to try to tell me that the diamond white veil would look really good....WHAT!! Are you kidding me? I asked what the probablility of getting a white dress and his response was "Well, guess we'll have to wait til Monday huh?" Are you serious? No faith at all so I said well lets go ahead I guess and move forward with the ivory dress but I will have to change EVERYTHING in my wedding from white to Ivory which costs more money. He has been an absolute NIGHTMARE His response is that I seemed happier with the ivory...ARE YOU KIDDING ME? Is that why I called my fiance bawling, because I was happy? No! My dream wedding was black and white and now it's not!!! We've been fighting with him every since because he refuses to reimburse me for their mistake...we saved him so much money by keeping that ivory dress that i didn't necessarily want...and when the manager called looking for a white dress she said she couldn't find one....Well, guess what? That isn't my fault, why should I pay more money for their mess up?? P.S. My new veil STILL isn't in and I ordered it over a month ago, rushed?? NO! 3/22/09 is my wedding date! 3 weeks away!

When I first went to Bridal Exclusives I was very very happy...until my dress and veil came in WRONG!!! Now I have to change everything about my wedding because of the dress and because they were unable to find the correct color apparently. The owner is very rude and doesn't seem to care about mess ups that his employees make! Now my wedding is not what I imagined! Ever since this happened every time I'm there I hear another horror story about some other girl getting the wrong dress...

Most of my friends have all gone to Bridal Exclusives and every single one of them that has gone to Bridal Exclusives had rave reviews! Finally it was my turn and of course I went to there too! Everyone there is very professional and nice! My sales girl listened to what I said and helped me find my dream dress! She spent so long with me and had so much patience! Even after she helped me find my dress she still spent time with me on finding accessories to go with my gown. She made me feel so comfortable and relaxed and she made it so much fun!! Bridal exclusives was not the only store I had been too either. I probably went to every store in Portland and nobody spent the time that Bridal Exclusives spent with me. A lot of places I had gone to before were rude and pushy. I thought Bridal Exclusives had the best dresses too! I didn't really find anything at any of the other stores (maybe a couple) but I had like 10 favorites at this shop! I"m glad that I listened to my friends that had all gone here, and I'm glad I chose to go there too. I kind of just waisted time at the other shops, If I had to do it over again I probably would have just gone here! I will highly recommend everyone to go here because everyone should deserve to feel as special as I did!

Pros: Friendly staff, they have auesome dresses!!!

I called 3 weeks before to schedule an appointment. I had family fly in from out of town and when we got there the lady in the front said we had our appointment scheduled for the following saturday and that i would have to wait. I had my sister next to me when we were scheduling the appointment and we both had it down in our schedule books for that saturday. they are so disorganized and rude. i've heard some pretty good things about this store but boy was i wrong. when it was finally our turn, our sales girl said that she didnt have chairs for my party because we didnt have an appointment. these girls do not listen to what you say. they're too much into doing their business their way to make a customer feel comfortable. my trip to bridal exclusives was a complete waist of time. I cant believe how much i talked this store up to my mom that she was convinced to fly in from Georgia to be a part of my dress shopping experience. i will never recommend this store to anyone. i felt incredibly let down.

i got married in august of 2008 so this review is a little overdue but i have to say something. bridal exclusives RUINED my big day. when i came in i was helped by a really nice gal who helped me complete my entire look and thats where it ended. when i tried to call them to check on the status of my order, they always took my name and number promising to call back.. never got a call back. finally after calling them several times i decided to go in. this was 1 month before my wedding. when i came in to see if my things were in, the girl in front said, "oh your things have been in since april, you sure no one called you?" what the #%$@! my things have been there for two months and i never got a call? my wedding was in four weeks! despite my anger i scheduled a fitting to get a hem. Stupid stupid mistake... not only did i have to wait for an hour when i came in for my fitting but there was 10 brides crammed in one little fitting area. the man there that im guessing was the manager orowner said that it was because they had just moved to a different space. what does that have anything to do with them booking ten brides at once? to make matters worse, i came in three days before my wedding and the man sent me out the door without letting me try my dress on. when i got home, i saw my veil was missing. i came back (40 min drive) to let them know that i didnt have my veil. he looked on the computer and said that it was never ordered, but yet i paid 209 dollars for it. after calling around, he said that the style i picked was dicontinued amd stared at me like it was my fault. um, hello? how is it my job to know that? he said the best he could do was refund me my money. i was left scrambling around portland trying to look for a veil 3 days before my wedding. wait this gets better on my wedding day my lace hem completely unraveled. i had to crop the bottom of my dress in all my pictures. they wouldnt even refund me my hem fee after the wedding!... whoopdeedoo theyre sooo great

Pros: are you kidding??

Cons: worst service ever, dont be fooled. they're only nice until they get your money

I came in about a month ago and my wedding was in 3 weeks, I needed bridesmaids dresses asap! I had gone to many bridal salons in the area and nobody was willing to help me because I didn't have time to order. I had also shoped all over the mall to find dresses and I couldn't find anything! I live in Beaverton so it was a drive for me to go to Bridal Exclusives, but I remembered my co-worker telling me how great of an experience she had when she went there so I thought what the heck! When I came in I was warmly greeted right away, the girl that was helping me made me feel really comfortable. They didn't have what I needed on their store but the girl did some research and called around to all the designers to see if they had anything. It took her a while to figure out something for me but she found me 3 bridesmaids dresses in the same style and the same color and in the right sizes for my girls! I was so great full that she took the time to do that , she didn't have to do this for me, and if it wasn't for her I would have to have my girls in different colors and styles which I didn't want. She definitely went above and beyond what any other store would have done for me! I highly recommend this place even if you live far away it's worth the trip! They saved my wedding!

I went to Bridal Exclusives to find my Dream Dress! I was very nervous about shopping for my dress, but right when I walked in I was treated so well. My consultant Helped me pick out different styles, so I knew what would look good on my body. They have all sizes too! I am a size 18 in bridal and they had TONS of dresses that were amazing on me, and actually fit to try on. My consultant was so helpful and patient with me, answering any questions that I had. I was able to look through the dresses and pick the ones that I wanted to try on, she even suggested some dresses for me. After trying on all of the different body styles I knew that I had found "The One". I was so happy, and they made me feel so special like a bride should feel. After I found my dress They went on to help me find all of the accessories that went perfectly with my dress. They have a huge selection, and AMAZING prices on everything in the store. When I left Bridal Exclusives I felt so relived because I had gotten so much taken care of. They were also very flexible with payments. I only had to put half down of my dress to order EVERYTHING! That is awesome! I had so much to pay for that it made it very easy to pay my dress and accessories off. The girls that work there LOVE what they do, and they are all highly knowledgeable on anything related to bridal. This shop is amazing and I would recommend them to any of my friends or family. It is a locally owned bridal boutique, with the best staff in town! I Bought Everything here. My dress, all of my accessories, and my bridesmaids dresses. I never had a problem. Bridal exclusives took care of me from the minute that I walked in that door, to the day that I got married. THANK YOU SO MUCH!

At first I was impressed with the service of Bridal Exclusives in clackamas. I had a pretty good experience picking out my wedding gown so I went back to get my bridesmaid dresses. The order had come in and they ordered a size too small for my maid of honor and the dress had manufacture defaults. So to make the dress work we had to do many alterations which would cost ALOT of money. I called bridal exclusives to speak with the manager and she proceeded to tell me that my maid of honor probably gained weight and they could not compensate me. I was absolutely shocked by the managers attitude and not wanting to make things ok with a customer. We went in and had the manager measure my maid of honor and found out that she did not change an inch. then the manager agreed that it was their fault and should have ordered a bigger size and the manufacturer messed up on the dress size. How did they compensate me? They said they wouldn't charge us for the extra alterations needed besides the basic let out and hem. Even though they ordered the wrong size, and the manager was completely rude, and the manufacturer made the dress with defaults. I would expect them to at least pay for ALL alterations and the balance on the dress.
ALso they have poor communication with the alteration place. They told me I could do certain add ons to my dress and when i went to get the add on they alteration place said that it would not be possible. OVERALL: a horrible place and would not recommended it to any brides.

Cons: do not compensate for their own faults

I went in with a few friends of mine to try on wedding dresses and I was pleasantly surprised by eliquence and the most amazing customer service I have ever had by anyone. Nicole showed me around, listened to my ideas and guided me all along the way. I felt listened to and heard. Other plaes I had gone I felt very overlooked and just another dress sale. Nicole, knowing I was going to have my dress made helped me with style and shape even though she was not making a sale. However, in the end I liked the very first dress I tried on sooo well that I decided to purchase it instead of having it made. Her excellent service and exertise certainly steared me in the right direction. The shop as a whole was very professional and I was well taken care of. Thank you.

I was just married in May and all I have to say is that Bridal Exclusives saved the day. I had a horrible experience at another bridal shop, Tres Fabu, and the girls at Bridal Exclusives were more then helpful. They had the exact same dress for $300 cheaper and were so sweet. They even came and opened up early one morning so I could be fitted and still make it to work on time. Everyone was so sweet and tried to make me feel special for my big day and they did. I am so appreciative still. I would recommend them to anyone!

Our experience in the store was great. We loved Nicole and my daughter found the absolute perfect dress. From then on it was a nightmare. The store owner, Steve, also owns Finishing touches, where they send you for any alterations. It is the most unorganized unprofessional place I have ever dealt with. The first time we went there, they could not find our dress, then realized they had the wrong name on it. Every time we went for try-ons, it was packed full of customers and very disorganized. Every time we left the dress there we felt like we had to "watch" them put our tag back on it. Any way, we picked up the dress 2 days before the wedding and all seemed well, until the reception when the lace scalloping they had sewn back on after hemming came off and fell apart into shreds. None of her wedding photos are of the full dress because of this horrible work these people had done. They did reimburse me for the 119.00 hemming fee, but the cant ever fix the horror of my daughters face when she realized her beautiful gown was in shreds. I would NEVER recommend this place. Please go somewhere else!

I worked with Amber at Bridal Exclusive on Sunnyside and she was fantastic. The first thing we did was pick one dress from the many sections they had because they want you to see how each dress fits your particular body. I am having a destination wedding and like most brides had this perfect idea of what I wanted. Well to say the least, I'm so glad I tried on some many different styles, I walked out with something completely different and I love it! Amber was so accommodating to my four year old niece who was playing around with all the dresses and bringing me accessories she found around the store. She even let her try on a dress. My suggestion to brides, call Bridal Exclusive and set up an appointment with Amber. When you get there, keep an open mind and you never know what you might find. On a side note, I paid the extra money to get my dress rushed in and it worked! I got the dress four weeks later! Thank you so much Amber! You were such a joy to work with.

I bought my dream wedding dress here. I would have rather bought it elsewhere, because the sales lady drove me crazy. She didn't really care about my opinion, and wanted things to be the way she wanted. She even had me try on her wedding dress, and was like, " isn't this dress beautiful? Doesn't it make you feel like you are in a fairytale??" It popped my breasts out sooo much and so I was like, "uhh this is way too much cleavage for me." Afterwards she informed me that was the dress she would be wearing, and I felt a little bad. Like another store, she tried to make me order a size larger. I was a size 4 in everything but my hips which were half an inch over. The dress poofs out after the waist, so my hips could really be 6 inches larger, and it would still fit. I stuck to my guns this time and insisted that she order the dress in the size that I was currently at, and since I fit into the size four sample. She made a big hissy fit about ordering it in that size and said she was making notes into her computer to cover her tracks. After we paid for the dress to be ordered, she got all sickening sweet and started talking about how she will do all the work for my bridesmaid dresses, because bridesmaids are awful and she could just deal with them to save me the hassle. I smiled fakely right back at her and told her I would definitely come back in... haha yeah right. I am just waiting to see how my dress fits, I can't wait to prove her wrong. I bought my bridesmaid dresses at J Crew for $89 each.

I had had a horrible experience at David's, and was trying to be optimistic about finding a dress. I was ready have a dress custom made, wanting a dress with support, not the strapless ones that are in style right now. I had seen an Alfred Angelo dress in a mag that I liked and wanted to try on, and found Bridal Exclusives online. I stopped in to see if there was one in my size and they offered to let me try it on right then. I was working, so I made an appointment to come back with my mom and bridesmaid. They have a huge selection of plus sized dresses. The Alfred Angelo one didn't look great on me, but the 4th one I tried brought tears to all of our eyes. Amber, our consultant, was very helpful, listened well to my needs, had great suggestions and was very knowledgeable in suiting my body type, alterations, options. She cried, too, when she saw the dress on me. It is such a relief to have found the dress. I was willing to pay twice the cost to have a flattering dress, but was thrilled to have found 'the one' at Bridal Exclusives. They didn't allow us to take pictures until I had chosen, then my mom snapped away, and I have those photos to show to my hair dresser, plan my make up, match the tux to, etc.
I would recommend this shop to any bride. You deserve to be treated with respect, don't settle for the Walmart of dress shops! Go to Bridal Exclusives!

I had had a horrible experience at David's, and was trying to be optimistic about finding a dress. I was ready have a dress custom made, wanting a dress with support, not the strapless ones that are in style right now.

I stopped in to see if there was one in my size and they offered to let me try it on right then. I was working, so I made an appointment to come back with my mom and bridesmaid.

Pros: Experienced consultants, great plus sized options, not chaotic or pushy.

Cons: Not one!

My wedding was over a year ago and I still have a bitter taste in my mouth after visiting Bridal Exclusives in Clackamas. I found the perfect gown...too bad the under-professional, overly arrogant bridal consultant that helped me was grossly incompetent! She took my measurements, then ordered my gown. I was concerned when she told me what size we would need to order, but she assured me that was normal to go up in size because of "Bridal Sizing." But like I suspected when the gown came in it was 4 sizes too big....and no, there was no change in my weight, like she insinuated. I later found out she ordered the gown too big, because it put me into th women's sizing, more expensive sizing....this way she made more commission....Classy, Right? My gown also came in too short, at 5'2'' inches I am amazed why anything would be too short, especially since I told her I was wearing flats.

No exchange was offered, and I was stuck paying over $300 to have my huge gown altered! Needless to say the work was too extensive, and my gown was ruined. 1 week before my wedding I was forced to visit another salon in my area and buy a gown off the floor. It wasn't my dream dress, but it fit, it wasn't too short, and it didn't cost me hundreds of dollars to alter, on top of the thousand dollars Bridal Exclusives charge me for the gown.

Run for the hills, this place is full of con artists and people who don't care about your big day....all the want is your money. Save yourself time, and money....go elsewhere. Don't get your heart broken, and your wallet emptied by these fools!

As soon as I walked in the store I was blown away by such beautiful
dresses!! You get your own personal bridal consultant there and
they really educated you on what looks the best on you, and they make you try on every style so your not wondering "well, what about that gown?" I felt so catered to, like I was a queen for the day. I believe every bride should expereince what Bridal Exclusives
provides once in there life! TRUST ME, TAKE MY ADVICE GO THERE AND YOU WILL NOT BE SORRY!!!

I went to another bridal shop and fell in love with this gown but I was kind of out of my price range, so I went to Bridal Exclusives becuase my cousin bought her dress there and she highly recommended it. I saw the same gown for $300 less at Bridal Exclsuives than at the other bridal shop. I asked why such a difference in price and the girl that was helping me said that they price there gowns the lowest that the designers will allow, and some shops will price them more that what the designer prices them at. I'm so glad that I went to Bridal Exclusives because if I hadn't I would'nt have been able to afford my dream dress!! The customer service was fabulous also, I felt very catered too, all the girls were so professional and my girl that was helping me was very educated on the gowns. She even took the time to find me my veil, tiara, shoes and necklace!

I have a really small budget for my wedding so I thought there was no way I could afford a designer gown,
I though I was going to have to settle for a David's dress. As soon as I entered Bridal Exclusives I was blown away by the gorgeous dresses! The detail work and quality was so much better, I was afraid to look
at the price of the gowns but when I looked, they were about the same price if not less expensive then at David's! I was so so glad that I went to this store, I almost didn't, and I almost settled for a medeocre dress and paid more for it. I walked out with the most beautiful designer gown I had ever seen and it was in my budget!! My consultant was so knowlegablel and sweet and she spent so much time with me. I would highly recommend this place to everyone!!!Especially brides that are on a budget!!!

I have been to a lot of bridal salons and no place even compares to Bridal Exclusives. My bridal consultant taught me so much about what looks good on me, she knew so much about the dresses and designers. She was very thourough with me and even stayed 2 hours after they closed to help me. She was so sweet, I loved her!! I highly recommend everyone to come here at least once becuase they really are much better
than any other place. My consultant made me feel like a queen!!

I'd been wedding dress shopping all day, trying on so many dresses they all started to look the same! I was tired and almost cancelled my appointment, but I'm so glad I didn't. Amber was so personable and fun. (The other girls were too). She listened to me and understood exactly what I wanted. I'd been pining after dresses by Melissa Sweet and Claire Pettibone, but could never afford them! I wanted a stylish, vintage-y, lace sheath. Not too romantic or princessy or tableclothy. Every dress she pulled was beautiful, unique and reasonably priced for the quality and attention to detail. I ended up buying the very first one she chose and I love it! I also bought a very reasonably priced long veil and a great necklace that matched my ring and pearl earings perfectly. Even though I could tell she wanted to sell me the whole package (dress, shoes, underthings, accessories, bridesmaids, etc), she was sympathetic to my budget and not too pushy. Although the dress I did buy was a couple hundred more than what I'd been hoping to spend, it did not compare to anything else I'd tried on. It was so worth it. There's no doubt in my mind that I'll still love it when my June wedding rolls around!

Pros: Great service, fun girls, wonderful dresses, layaway!

Cons: A little pricey, they'll want to sell you everything

Bridal Exclusives was the first salon I visited, but they didn't treat me like that. Amber(the girl that helped me) treated me as if I was going to buy my gown there. She asked me what I liked and then helped me pick out six or seven dresses that incorporated my tastes and helped explore things I hadn't tried yet. She helped me figure out exactly what I was looking for and none of the bridal salons I have been to since have been able to compare. The price of the dress I like is very reasonable and fits in my teeny budget. Great Place!

Pros: Customer Service, Prices, discounts on bridesmaids dresses if you buy your gown there

Cons: no photography

I admit, the very first time I went into this shop I didn't have an appointment and it was a busy Saturday afternoon. At that time I found the staff to be rude and abrupt. I eventually ended up making an appointment (time was ticking....I HAD to find a dress ASAP) and receiving excellent service. I now realize that Saturdays are busy and if you want good service at a bridal salon you should make an appointment. The quality of the dresses here far surpasses the dresses I tried on at David's and they were affordable as well. I found the perfect gown. I can't wait to wear it!

I defenitely reccommend Bridal Exclusives! The ladies there were very helpful and I was surprised at how many great deals they had! I got a beautiful affordable dress they had at the store, which beats having to wait 8 weeks for it somewhere else. The girl helping me was great, she showed me what I wanted, and even did my hair to make it fun! If you cant find what you want, or dont have time to wait 6-8 weeks for your dress, I defenitely would reccommend Bridal Exclusives! I just wish I could have taken a picture of the dress.

I work in the bridal fashion industry. I liked the selection offered and the prices were decent but let me tell you, you can go to any shop and find the same gowns for the same or less price and much nicer attendants. The first girl I got was great, the second didnt know who I was and couldnt have cared less that I was potentially spending A LOT of money. I had no budget and they wouldnt lift a finger to help me although Im too short to reach the gown rack. Its a great place if you know what you want and how to fit yourself, dont let them double talk you or put you in a dress you feel less than beautiful in. Oh yeah... and the fitting rooms werent even big enough to have assistance getting dressed in, how would I lace up a corset back?

When my fieance and I went in the gal did greet us but then shortly they got cold. The gang up on you and try to tell you something that they like and want you to have. We felt that they had there noses in the air and didnt want to hear what you eanted but what they wanted you to have. They were very snotty. I would NOT recomend them to my friends. There just not that kind. This store needs kinder and softer people. Looking for the perfect dress is hard enough. I just thought people should know.

I love this bridal shop. I used to walk by this place all the time and dream about being able to go inside to buy a wedding dress. This place has such a great selection and the customer service is excellent. They have many different types of dresses so you will definately be able to find something you like here. The prices are also pretty good too. Parking here is good. It's in the Promenade so theres plenty of places to park. If your in a wedding or just want to dream, stop by this shop. You wont be sorry.

My friend is getting married in 6 months. She just started looking for a dress and asked me to help. We went to Bridal Exclusives last night. This shop was much nicer than I had expected. It also has a decent selection of gowns. They do not let you take pics. I sure wish they would. It would make it easier to remember what you liked and did not like. I would recommend this shop.

If you are getting ready for your special day, I would highly recommend you check out this place! I have been there for several weddings, as a bridesmaid, maid of honor, and for my own wedding! They have a nice selection, and the prices seem to be good! The customer service is usually great as well!

Ok I am young i admit that.. but this store treated my best friend, who is getting married soon the worst time... basically saying that she is about 10 sizes bigger than she really is and giving her the cold sholder because we are young.... I am never going to this store and I recommend that no one else does either!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
