Look what our brides are saying:
"At Brides, Etc. I found the professional, reliable and personal service I wanted in helping me plan my wedding. I wasted a lot of time shopping at those discount stores and other boutiques. I was appalled by the warehouse-like conditions of their store, such as the bland communal dressing rooms, the lack of quality in their products, and the lack of any personal service. At Brides, Etc. however, my wedding became the focus of everyone there at the moment I walked in the door. Everyone made it a point to get to know me, which resulted in them taking a personal and honest interest in what I chose for my special day. In this small boutique, I found the dress of my dreams under my budget, as well as everything else I needed to make the day perfect. I have guided three of my best friends to Brides, Etc. and all three were extremely satisfied with the service, their dresses, and all their other wedding needs. The best thing I discovered about Brides, Etc. was that they simply took care of everything, taking the stress away and making my whole wedding experience fun and memorable. I credit their hard work, knowledge, reliability and trust for helping give me the fairy tale wedding of my dreams." - Meagan
"Planning a beautiful wedding can be a very tough, stressful job. I never knew that it took so much to make a wedding day complete. Without the help of Brides, Etc.’s knowledgeable staff, my wedding would have never been what it was. Their willingness to give honest advice and expertise played a very important role in preparation for my special day. From complete wedding party wardrobe to cake toppers, Brides, Etc. helped me every step of the way, and if I could plan my wedding all over again, I would still choose them. I will always recommend people to Brides, Etc. for all their special occasion needs." - Tiffany
"All my life I’ve dreamed of my wedding day. After I got engaged I was anxious to start looking for that perfect dress. I went to large volume stores & boutiques all over NC and I was never met with much enthusiasm. I felt like just another dollar sign to them & I wanted more than that. Lucky for me I found it in my hometown at Brides, Etc. What I didn’t realize at first was that the size of the bridal shop didn’t matter, they could get anything I wanted no matter where I had seen it. Their experienced wedding consultants helped me every step of the way, picking out my dream gown, shoes, bridesmaids dresses and tuxedos. Their advice and support has surpassed my highest expectations. The friendships & bonds that have formed this past year will stay with me throughout my lifetime!" - Margaret "Bride to Be"
