I had a great experience at the Images Bridal & Pageants; I`m low maintenance and hate the frills and fawning attendants that you get at most bridal boutiques. They let us pick and pull dresses, and my sister helped me get into them - so no strangers trying to stuff you into dresses! The dresses are donated - by designers, or stores generally - and some you can tell are heavily worn samples. But most dresses don`t have a mark on them, so we just passed over the rough looking ones. The size you see is the size you get, so it takes the guess work out of it! The staff was very nice and complimentary, but didn`t hover around trying to sell me on stuff. At the end of the day they marked down a very expensive dress so that it fit my budget ($900). I couldn`t be happier and would really recommend this place to any brides looking for beautiful, discounted dresses without the harried bridal boutique experience.
I intended to visit other bridal salons besides Images Bridal & Pageants, but after going twice (I haven`t bought a dress but plan to do so once I come back with my mom) I don`t feel like I need to look elsewhere. Great selection at good prices and terrific service - they showed me what would look good on me, which was the opposite of what I thought I wanted, and were totally right! The store itself is a little overwhelming - I definitely recommend going on a weeknight rather than a Saturday.
