See What Our Brides Are Saying
"The Collection Bridal was the third bridal boutique my mother and I went to while wedding dress shopping and was the last one because it was PERFECT. Shainna helped me from my initial visit to my final fitting! I came in originally with some ideas of what I thought I wanted and Shainna was so great to pull the exact dresses I was describing, but was also wise enough to pick-up on my personality and other styles I might like/might fit my body type that I was not necessarily asking for.
She sweetly suggested that I try on a dress that came to her mind the more time she spent with me..and OF COURSE it was THE dress! I'm forever indebted to Shainna and The Collection Bridal for finding me a dress I felt so beautiful in. The whole process was streamline - every fitting or alteration appointment was scheduled easily and everyone was on time and friendly! It was such a pleasant relationship from start to finish - I would HIGHLY recommend stopping in at The Collection Bridal if you are getting married - it will not disappoint!" - Tiffany, 6/24/20
"I have no words to describe how amazing my experience with Shainna was!!! From the moment I walked in she asked me what I wanted/didn’t want and what my budget was. Shortly after she was pulling the most PERFECT dresses for me. She knew exactly what it is that I wanted. She made me feel comfortable and beautiful with every dress I wore. After I had tried on about three dresses of I asked her to pull one a little different then what I originally thought I wanted. She said I have the perfect dress for you and she wasn’t wrong she ended up pulling THE DRESS! It was AMAZING AND BREATHTAKING and shainna made it all that special! I told her I felt like she was my little fairy godmother picking out dresses for me she knew I’d love! Thank you for the best experience. So happy to be a collection bride!!!" - Stefani, 6/17/20
"The Collection was amazing! I worked with Christina to find my perfect dress & she also helped my future mother-in-law find an amazing dress as well! I can't wait for my fittings to start!!" - Jordyn, 4/13/20
"I had an amazing experience at The Collection Bridal :) Christina was my stylist. She was super nice and beyond helpful. They helped with requesting samples of my dream headpiece and gowns so I can try both on together. They offered all of us champagne each time we went to the store. The store is beautiful and I loved my experience here! Definitely recommend." - Gabriella, 8/22/20
"I went to the Collection Bridal with my younger brother and was very clear that I wasn't going to buy anything that day because my mom wasn't able to make it. They were so helpful and I found a dress that I was 99% sure I wanted, but I didn't feel pressured into making a decision that day. Two weeks later after a few other appointments elsewhere, I was able to take my mom to the Collection to look at the dress again, and when I put it on with mom there, I picked out a veil to go with it and said yes!" - Laura, 8/20/20
"My mom and I both had wonderful experiences at The Collection Bridal! Christina helped me to find my perfect wedding gown and she also helped my mom to find a perfect mother-of-the-bride dress! Everyone in the store was very welcoming and Christina was very fun to work with and she has even been so helpful in helping my bridesmaids to order their dresses. We couldn't have hoped for a better experience!" - Chloe, 8/28/20
"I went here for my 20-year vow renewal. Christina was amazing and so very patient with me. I went in there so sure of what I wanted and she showed me what I really wanted deep down in my heart. She asked all the right questions and showed a genuine concern that I make the right decision. This bridal shop was not only beautiful but it created a memory that will last a lifetime!" - Natasha, 8/14/20
"Disclaimer: I'm not a "normal" bride by any stretch of the imagination (I worked in theater costume design and I've seen/made/tried on a ton of dresses in my day). I think I tried on about 80 dresses by the time I hit The Collection. The other bridal shops rushed me through the process and I didn't feel like I was a person, just a number. The fabric on a lot of the dresses elsewhere also felt cheap. At the Collection, Shainna was my bridal consultant and she's a firecracker! We're both about 5'1'' tall, so she understood my needs as both a short bride and someone who has seen A LOT of gowns. I found my Monique Lhuillier dress during a trunk show in May of this year (and I made Shainna work, poor thing, trying on some very heavy dresses).
Fast forward, my venue falls through, and my date had to change from early fall to deep winter. I called and spoke with Roya, who told me that, while unusual, she completely understood that everything had changed and the venue went from an outdoor woodland ceremony to a Grand historic library in downtown Baltimore, so she invited me in to try on more venue- and seasonally-appropriate gowns. Shainna called me up and talked to me so she could pick dresses on her end, and even got Monique Lhuillier to SEND my dream gown to them! When I arrived, she gave me a big hug, made me feel so welcome. My mother was unable to be there so Roya was both a stand-in Mom as well as a great second opinion. They even stayed late with me to get all the measurements and called Monique Lhuillier's production consultant to make sure they could make an adjustment in the dress, just so I would have peace of mind THAT SAME MOMENT when I bought my dress... Love you guys, you are really top notch! Thank you thank you thank you so much for all your time and energy." - Julie, 2/29/20
"I went into The Collection Bridal and worked with both Roya and Christina. Roya started the appointment by getting to know me and what my vision for the wedding day was. Roya listened to what I was saying and she pulled out a dress that I was not sure about at all, but I figured she knew what she was doing so I decided to try it on. That dress was the first one I tried on and my face lit up. Trying on dresses with Roya and Christina was an amazing experience and I cannot stop smiling, I love the dress and the experience they provided. I highly recommend working with the team at The Collection, they are all wonderful and know what they're doing. I cannot wait to continue working with them" - Kristine, 12/03/19
"Shaina and the team at The Collection Bridal are absolutely amazing! They have the best selection of gowns to choose from and made me and my family feel so comfortable from the second we walked in. Shaina listened to exactly what I was looking for and found the perfect dress for me! She pulled a dress she thought I had to try, sure enough it ended up being the one! The whole team was super helpful and I couldn't have asked for a better experience!" - Elena, 9/15/19
"I highly recommend The Collection Bridal for wedding dresses! Great little shop in a great location. We made the drive from Tampa and it was well worth it. Top notch customer service and Shainna really went above and beyond for us. She was so friendly and knowledgeable on the dresses and veils they had in the store. I ultimately ended up selecting a dress from a different store, but had the best experience at The Collection because I had the opportunity to work with Shainna!" - Brittany, 7/1/20
"Oh my gosh! What a magical place to be. I went in terrified of trying on more dresses and not finding the one again, but the girls that work there made me and my entire entourage feel so welcomed. They have every style shape and color dress you can imagine and by some odd chance they don’t they can order it for you. Never thought I’d have that bridal moment until I came here. Go. Trust me. Go!!" - Melanie, 8/5/20
"I can not stop raving about this absolutely stunning store!!! Not only was the customer service BEYOND what I could have ever expected. Shainna gave me the wedding dress shopping experience every girl hopes and dreams of. From having a horrible experience earlier in the day they took us in as a walk in sat with me and listened to what I was looking for. The first dress she pulled was THE dress. She and this store totally saved my wedding dress shopping experience and I can not wait to show off my amazing gown!! If anyone I know needs a dress this will be the first place I ever mention hands down!!! Thank you so much Shainna!!!!" - Paige, 7/29/20
"The Collection Bridal really set the tone for my entire wedding experience! I owe it all to Shainna Bryson, my bridal stylist. She is a ROCKSTAR. Hands down, she made me feel like a queen from my very 1st appointment until my last appointment a week before my wedding. The Collection Bridal was pit stop #1 in my wedding dress shopping experience and Shainna set the bar HIGH. I am thicker girl (size 14/16) so I was hesitant that I wouldn't be able to fit in any of their dresses - wrong! As soon as I walked in, we sat down and discussed my vision for my wedding day, what I envisioned myself wearing/looking like, etc. She had champagne and water waiting for me so we could sip-and-shop.
She started picking out dresses and the 1st dress I put on was something I didn't even envision myself in. 3 more bridal shops later and about 2 weeks of thinking and that 1st dress I put on Shainna picked out ended up being THE dress. The follow-up from Shainna was superb and she wasn't pushy at all. I ended up getting my hairpiece, earrings and veil from Collection Bridal and wouldn't look back. Shainna was my wedding angel - the way you feel/look is so important on your big day and she became my right hand woman! I highly recommend to schedule an appointment at The Collection Bridal with Shainna - she helped me find my dream wedding dress and I truly felt like a princess on my big day! I'm so thankful for the team at Collection Bridal - such a great experience!" - 5/13/20
