Tampa >Jon's Bridal
Calm, pleasant and fun experience.
I had been to 2 other bridal stores: one was a boutique, where the dresses were all too small to see what they really looked like on, and the service was relaxed. The other was a BIG CHAIN that left me feeling overwhelmed and disappointed.
I knew a friend who had gotten her dress at Jon's, so I decided to go with my mom and future mother-in-law. I worked with Denise. Even though I had an idea of what I wanted, I didn't give her too much info on my ideas because I wanted to keep an open mind. She asked me how I wanted to look on my wedding day. I told her "romantic and elegant." She took me to one section where I picked out 4 dresses. She laughed and told me I had picked all the same designer.
I was so relieved that all the dresses actually fit so I could really see what I would look like on my wedding day. And the dressing room experience was a thousand times better than at the chain store. At the chain store, the sales woman's irritation was palpable as she rushed me in and out of several dresses that did not fit my description of what I was looking for at all. With Denise, she gave me specific instructions on how to get in and out of the dress and then we chatted like friends as she helped me change from dress to dress. It was such a calm and pleasant experience.
As I modeled each dress, Denise gave insightful and helpful comments. She used to be a photographer and used this experience to help me plan what would look best in pictures on my wedding day. She also gave both "moms" and quick photography lessons and taught all of us how to properly pose for photos. My mom, mother-in-law and I agreed that we would use her advice on the big day and it would be our little inside joke.
I got overwhelmed choosing the dress and could not immediately commit to a veil. Denise left this alone, but just before I was going to leave, I decided to choose a veil and she helped me with this as well.
My mom, mother-in-law, and I are each very different people but we all loved Denise and the whole experience at Jon's.
Thank you so much, Denise and Jon's. You will be another memory I treasure when I think about the journey to marriage. :)
The best experience ever. This is the first place I should have started on my quest to find the right dress. I went in a little under the weather because I could find MY dress and with my price range. Well I had Tessie as my consultant she was awesome! She was so patient even though my appointment started to extend beyond my alotted time, she made sure I found my perfect dress. Through this experience I will send every bride I know to Jon's just to save them the time and aggrivation. Keep up the good work Jon's Bridal.
Jons Bridal Experiance **AWESOME**. I purchased my dress from Jons bridal one month ago and just picked it up today! What a WONDERFUL experience! I had shopped at one store before this one and it was awful, my mom was helping me put on dresses in a typical small fitting room, NO HELP from attendant. We (my entire Bridal party, and MOMS) went to Jons Bridal directly after the first place! WHAT A DIFFERENCE!! Tessie helped me out, which you would think bringing a party of 12 in with you she would be overwhelmed, nope she handled us PERFECT! I showed he styles of dresses I liked and she pulled exactly what I was looking for, SHE helped me put them on, buttoned, zipped, and bustled, not my mom. I found the perfect dress, which she had me try on at least 3 times just to be sure. She didn't seem interested if we wasted her time she genuinely CARED about me, my thoughts, and how I felt in the dress. She was AWESOME! As I picked up my dress today, I couldn't have asked for another great experience! So helpful and educated me on my dress. I will hands down send everyone to JONS BRIDAL!! Best service EVER!
Best Bridal Store. I went to Jon's this past weekend on 5/14/11. Tessie was my consultant. She is fantastic! I couldn't say enough nice things about her. I requested her because she also helped my sister with her gown last year. Everyone at Jon's bridal are so nice and the experience is wonderful. I knew I would find my dress there. There is so many to chose from. The price is is unbelievable for what you get! GORGEOUS GOWN AND AMAZING SERVICE.
Amazing Experience at Jon's. Jon’s is amazing!!! I worked with Denise, who I could not say enough nice things about. I walked in with little idea about what kind of gown I wanted or what would look good on my body. She walked me through it so easily, I wasn’t stressed at all! She was patient, kind, truthful, and knowledgeable. I ended up with a beautiful dress (high quality) at a great price. Wonderful dress shopping experience at Jon’s! I especially love that you can try on dresses in your size- no need to imagine yourself in the correct size while you’re clipped into or popping out of sample sizes! Go here- you won’t regret it.
Bought and brought home my dress!.
I have been to almost 10 bridal shops in Jacksonville, Gainesville, Orlando, Tampa, and St. Pete over the past 6 months looking for my wedding dress. Hands down, Jon's Bridal was the best!
My bridal consultant was Tessie. She was helpful, professional, and most of all sincere. At some places, the consultants act like they are your best friends and hug you and I just don't go for that kind of fakeness when making a big purchase. With Tessie at Jon's Bridal, I felt respected and treated like a grown woman who needed guidance to make an expensive decision. Thanks, Tessie!
I loved that I could try on the ACTUAL DRESS that I would take home and that I could buy it and take it home THAT DAY! I've had a hard time choosing a dress at other places because I have to imagine what it would be like in my size while clipped into a dress 4 sizes too big. Also, waiting for a dress to be ordered and shipped was driving me insane... too many decision revolve around the dress. I needed it in my possession to move forward and Jon's Bridal let me do this!
The only strange thing is that the label is cut out of the dress. I know it is an Allure, but there is no tag to prove it...I didn't realize it until I got the dress home and wish I was told about this and explained the reason why this is done. I still would have gotten the dress, but I am left curious as to why the label is cut out.
Overall, thanks Tessie and Jon's Bridal for helping me successfully check off the dress choice from my list. I am so glad to have my dress and I am happy with it!!
Ask for Rebecca Brownlee..she is awesome..
Jon's Bridal is awesome.
The dresses are gorgeous and pristine.
But the best yet is the service......
Rebecca is who worked with me. She knew what I wanted before I did. I loved every dress she picked for me.
Rebecca is over the top nice, and knowledgeable.
I have been to bridal shops down in Miami on the Mircle Mile, and Jon's bridal beat them all, because of the service I recieved.
I have one complaint...that I could not photograph myself in the dress unless I bought it. I wanted to see how I looked besides the mirror. Other than that all I can say is
Wonderful experience!. I went to Jon's Bridal expecting to try on different styles of dresses to find what I would like, not to actually purchase a dress. I thought I would need to shop around and go to several places. I was not planning on finding the PERFECT dress! There were a lot of dresses to choose from & they were all unique unlike stores like David's Bridal. Gail worked with me & actually was the one who found the dress I purchased. She was very friendly & helpful. I have already recommended Jon's to several people & even my bridesmaids who came with me are planning on going there when they are looking for dresses! There was a sale going on & the prices were definitely reasonable for the quality! If you want a good experience, go to Jon's! Don't listen to anyone who says they had a bad experience!! :)
best experiance. honestly at first, i wasn't so sure about jon's bridal but was i taken care of and pampered. Denise took care of me and really understood what i wanted and needed for my special day she even gave me the best idea for our wedding favors! thank you jon's for helping purchase the most special gown i'll ever wear.. its stunning!
Give them a chance.... I went to Jon's Bridal a bit worried, having read several negative reviews about various employees and the state of the dresses. However, those worries proved to be unfounded. It could be that my size (4) isn't as common as some of the others, but none of the 20 or so dresses I tried on were at all dirty or beat up...in fact, I didn't notice any signs they'd ever been tried on before (make-up, etc)! One of the most vilified consultants (Gigi) also happened to be the one to help me. While I will say that she has very strong opinions about what dresses she likes, this doesn't make her completely unflexible in allowing you to try on dresses she doesn't recommend (though, to be frank, her opinions about the dresses were usually right). In fact, the dress that turned out to be "the one" would have be completely overlooked by my mother and me, had it not been for her. However, if you are soft spoken and unwilling to speak up about what you like, she may not be the best consultant for you. I can't speak to their flexibility or professionalism towards brides on a budget, as I took my dress elswhere to be altered and didn't have a price cap when it came to buying my dress, but Gigi brought me dresses ranging from $300 to several thousand and didn't seem at all upset when I fell in love with one for $1,800...so I can't see them treating a bride with a budget poorly, when she was openly offering me less expensive dresses.
