The Bridal Connection Experience
"Thank you so much for the beautiful gown! It helped me achieve my dream wedding! I felt like a princess!"
- Amanda Ryan (Ruehs), Marshalltown, IA
"Bridal Connection had beautiful gowns in a wide range of price ranges. Lara was so awesome to work with and seamstress did wonderful work on my dress. I love the excitement they all have regarding you, your dress and your big day. 10/10 Recommend"
- Chyenne Larson/Pease, Colfax
"My bridal consultant Kaelin was great. She made everything feel and look as best as it could be. I had been to other salons before this visit, and the first experience I had (at Stacey's) was awful. Kaelin made me feel like I was her focus and that even when I couldn't put into words why I didn't like a dress, she went with it and didn’t make me feel stupid. I had a great experience at Bridal Connection and would recommend it to anyone wanting a good experience trying on dresses. I can't wait until my dress comes in and I get to put it back on!"
- Maren, Des Moines
"I enjoyed working with Lara and finding out about the military background and Bridal Connection. My fiance is in the Air Force, It was nice talking to her and having her taking my vision and putting it in dress form. I am very pleased with my non-traditional (non-white) fit n flare glitter gown. I am very happy! I can't wait to come in for my fittings."
- Cassandra Edwards, Ankeny
"I had a great experience at The Bridal Connection! Selina did a great job picking out dresses according to what I wanted and I ended up saying "YES!" to the 4th dress I put on! We all had a great time from the moment we walked in the door until we left! They even let us stay after they closed to make sure we didn't feel rushed during the process! I highly recommend brides check out The Bridal Connection!"
- Kimmy, Pella
"I absolutely loved my experience at Bridal Connection!!! We were greeted upon our arrival by friendly staff members, the store was beautiful inside and very clean, and they had a nice selection of gowns in different price ranges. My personal consultant ,Tammy, was the best! She made me (someone who hates dresses) feel so comfortable with the entire process. I ended up falling in love with a dress I didn't think I wanted to try on, but did! I had so much fun finding my "yes!" dress! I never felt pressured to buy anything. After deciding to say yes to the dress, we were surprised with champagne and pictures to celebrate! Thanks so much for making my dress shopping experience one I'll remember forever!"
- Pamela Hunter, Ankeny
"I loved my experience and will most likely be making my dress purchase at this store. My consultant made me feel comfortable and relaxed. I will be requesting the same consultant for my next visit as well. She knew the right questions to ask and made each dress reveal special."
- Danielle Kling, Polk City
"i loved all of the support and help that i got from the staff and people in the store when choosing my dress! there were a lot of different options and varieties of dresses to pick from, and everyone there gave honest feedback for all of the dresses i tried on! I will definitely be back for future dresses!"
- Kassidy, Ankeny
"I am so thankful for Lara and the staff at Bridal Connection. I found my dream wedding gown here and they made the process so fun and stress-free! Everything from the first time I looked in store, to the second time I came in to try on what would be MY dress, to the alterations, and final try on was perfect. Everyone was pleasant and professional to work with. I would recommend anyone who is looking for their wedding dress to check out Bridal Connection in Ankeny!"
- Lindsay Donnelly
"Everyone at The Bridal Connection was very helpful! I was impressed by the dedication of their staff to help me find my dress and was so happy when I said yes yesterday! I look forward to working with them for other wedding apparel."
- Jennifer Van Riessen
"I had the best experience at Bridal Connection last weekend looking for my wedding dress! I worked with Selena, and she made me feel welcome and comfortable the whole time. She started out by giving me a gift for booking an appointment at Bridal Connection, then asked me what style of dress I was looking for, my budget, etc. I then sat down with my guests in our own separate area while Selena went and picked out dresses she thought I would like, carefully making sure she stayed within my budget. She really knew exactly what I was looking for and helped me find the perfect dress! She even helped me make some changes to my dress to make it even more special and had such creative and perfect suggestions. She was not pushy at all and I could tell she really cared and wanted me to find a dress that I loved. After I said "yes to the dress" my guests and I got to celebrate with champagne! It was such a good experience and I would recommend to anyone!"
- Alyssa Oberbreckling
"I did not realize how late we kept you on Sunday and we are all so appreciative of all of your help! Keegan was fantastic and was patient with us as we figured out the look for the guys and it was a fantastic experience again. Thank you!"
"I had a wonderful time at Bridal Connection looking for a wedding dress. Laurie was really helpful in listening to my needs and budget in what wedding dress I was looking for."
"My experience was more than I could have hoped for at Bridal Connection. Melissa S. was super helpful and far from "pushy". She let me make a decision without trying to get me to try things I knew I absolutely did not want. She engaged in conversation and made the day absolutely unforgettable! I also went back for bridesmaid dress shopping and requested Melissa S. again to help because it meant a lot to stay with the same person throughout the whole wedding planning process. Highly recommended!"
"I had a fantastic experience. Melissa, our consultant, picked out the perfect dresses for me and made us feel warm and welcom the entire time that we were in. We will be back to finish the rest of our wedding shopping!"
"The Bridal Connection was my favorite and last place I had to look for my Wedding gown. From the moment I stepped onto the building I was wisked away by the staff. Check in was speedy and both my family and I LOVED working with Lara, our expert! She not only listened to what I wanted, but she was able to deliver me a dress that none of the other wedding gown stores could offer me all day! I highly recommend the staff and their products! The dresses..all of them...are BEAUTIFUL and waiting to be worn by blushing brides.
"Great experience! The owner was extremely friendly and helpful finding my bridesmaid dress. It was a super easy process! Our consultant even let my best friend try on her wedding dress (without an appt.) to show me because I was from out of town when she chose it and wasn’t able to be there to see it originally. Thank you for the awesome customer service and making us all so happy with our choices!"
"As a bride, this was an AMAZING EXPERIENCE. The staff is not only knowledgeable and fun but they are really looking out for YOU!
I can't recommend them enough, they have a great variety of dresses, really clean store and not pushy at all! Ask for Melissa,
she was incredible and made me feel so comfortable! Make sure this is the place you stop at while dress shopping!"
