Review from The Knot: Kristin and Connie helped me find the perfect wedding dress. They are so sweet and you receive such a personal experience. When you make an appointment at Fleur de Lis, they lock the door so you are the only one there and they give you their undivided attention. However, they do not pressure you to buy a dress from them. They want you to find your perfect dress for your big day. Even when I went back for my fittings, I was the only one at the shop. It was such a personal experience and I loved every minute of working with the two of them. I’m actually sad I won’t be seeing them anymore. My dress was beautiful and I received tons of compliments! Thank you for everything Kristin and Connie!

They are always seeking the newest trend and also offer mimosas while you browse. Town and Country is located off of Ladue Rd in St. Louis, MO, Instagram, Reviews on Wedding Wire.
Review from The Knot: I had the most incredible experience at this boutique! From the moment I stepped in the door, my fairytale dress shopping experience began. I was given personal, undivided attention, was able to walk through the store and look at each and every dress before I began trying them on, and was even handed a mimosa while I browsed! My family and friends were given a private viewing area to wait in, as well as freedom to roam the store and browse through the gown selections. The smiles were plenty as I tried on dresses selected specially for me, loving each and every one. This no pressure, high respect and loving environment was the perfect one for me to say “yes” to my dress in. I will recommend every friend, colleague and acquaintance to shop Town & Country for the ultimate and all-inclusive bridal gown experience. Thank you for such an amazing day!!

Review from The Knot: Clarice’s is the only place I went to look for dresses so I don’t have anything to compare it to, but my experience was wonderful! My consultant was Jaz, and upon my arrival I showed her my Pinterest board and she took one look at it and quickly gathered the dresses I had pinnedplus a few more of her choice. I probably tried on about 10 dresses or so and she was patient and I never felt rushed. She listened to me and helped me narrow down my choices until we found the one. I was a little anxious to go since I had three bridesmaids, my mom, grandma and future mother in law with me, but the whole process went smooth and Jaz helped facilitate that. There waa a huge selection of dresses and they were organized by style. I never felt pressured and I was never handed a dress that went over my budget. Jaz found the perfect accessories which really made me feel like a bride. We put down a deposit and were out of there shortly after I said yes to the dress. I highly recommend Clarice’s for a great selection of dresses, reasonable prices, and wonderful customer service!
With a large inventory, Maiden Voyage Bridal offers BOTH wedding and bridesmaid dresses. You will be able to shop for both in one location. You can find this boutique located in Manchester, MO near St. Louis. Instagram, Reviews on Wedding Wire
Review from The Knot: My daughter found her dream dress at Maiden Voyage. It was by far the best experience we had at any bridal salon. She had tried on other dresses and found some that she liked, but nothing that was “the one”. We were just beginning to think she might be someone who just didn’t have that “moment” when finding her dress….and then we went to Maiden Voyage. Our consultant was Jenny and we liked her immediately. She was so positive and so attentive. She really listened to what my daughter was looking for. The selection of dresses was by far the best we had seen. We loved the first three dresses she brought in!! After a couple more dresses, Jenny had just one more she wanted to try. The minute I saw my daughter in it I knew it was “the one” and so did my daughter!! She finally had her moment! We returned to find a veil and for two fittings. Each time the salon was helpful, friendly and courteous. Jenny was also there each time to greet us and make sure everything went smoothly. We cannot recommend this bridal salon highly enough. It should be every bride’s first stop when shopping for a dress.

Review from The Knot: From start to finish Mia Grace was the perfect experience! I was so indecisive on dresses….I went to a LOT, I mean a LOT of bridal shops, and tried on dresses. From the first time I went to Mia Grace, they were so kind, friendly and never made me feel rushed or pressured. I didn’t find my dream dress there on the first visit, but I liked them so much that I made sure to get my bridesmaid’s dresses from them. They were great to my girls! I bought a dress somewhere else and thought I was set. Then, a new dress line came out and I saw what I thought was the perfect dress for me, but it was just weeks before my wedding, way too late to order. My fiance called around, hoping a shop would happen to have it in my size as a sample. Mia Grace did, had just received it and it was in perfect condition! When I went back, they still didn’t rush me, showed me other options, even found some that could be ordered in time, but the sample dress was perfect! I highly recommend Mia Grace, their prices were lower than others I checked and their customer service was fantastic!

Review from The Knot: Robin’s Bridal was the second shop I went to and I immediately felt at home. They were not high pressure and I felt like they really cared about me as a customer. They gave me a great deal on my dress and they were more than happy to let me ‘visit’ the dress and try it on as I was working to lose weight before the wedding. I never felt uncomfortable and they were all so helpful. The in house alterations in the store were also amazing. The woman who did mine did an incredible job as my dress was pretty intricate and you couldn’t hem it like a normal dress. Also the bustle she did was incredible. It made my dress look like a ball gown at the end of the night, not a wedding dress with a bustle. Everyone her was very friendly and very down to earth. The prices are great and the dresses are lovely. And the dress I loved they didn’t have in the store, but they still ordered it for me and it was gorgeous. Highly recommend.
Wanting to find the tux and bridal gown in one shop? You can find both at The Ultimate Bride. They have wedding gowns for all individuals involved in your special day. This stunning Bridal Boutique is off of Big Bend Blvd in St. Louis, MO. Instagram Reviews on Wedding Wire
Review from The Knot: My experience with The Ultimate Bride was awesome! I have already recommended The Ultimate Bride to some of my friends and other brides-to-be that I’ve met!! The staff, specifically Sheila, Megan, and Laura, were absolutely wonderful! We met Sheila at a bridal show and loved working with her in the store. We went around 1pm during the week and had an amazing experience. We were the only ones in the shop, so we were able to take our time (we were there almost 4 hours) and worked one-on-one with Sheila. She must have pulled 20 dresses, all in our budget and the style I liked, for me to try when I went to the store with my mom, brother, and best friend. Sheila was very patient while we critiqued every gown I tried on. All of the dresses were beautiful, but I fell in love with the Mikaella mermaid style gown that my parents purchased for me. After we ordered my dress, the shop made sure to invite us to designer shows for me to choose my headpiece. So I ended up purchashing my headpiece and jewelry from The Ultimate Bride, as well. When the time was closer to my wedding, Megan and Laura came to the rescue when my dress was a little snug. Laura, the alterations lady, was wonderful and made my mermaid style gown fit me perfectly. Every bride wants to feel special about her event and especially her dress. This shop makes sure to give you the best experience you can have while finding your perfect gown!
You cannot go wrong with any of these options. Take some time to think about what your hopes and dreams are for your wedding dress shopping. Once you know what those are, take a look at what each boutique has to offer so you’ll be able to find the perfect fit. May you enjoy this special day that you’ll never forget!
