Pick out a ton of dresses to try on and then strut your stuff down their lit runway? Yes, Please! I had so much fun shopping here with a friend that I knew I had to come back when it was my turn. The consultant was very friendly and helped me narrow down my favorites as I went tried on a ton of dresses. It was so fun to walk the lit runway and have my mom take pictures of every dress I liked. Then once I had picked out my top three we went into the natural lighting room and Dress#2 was the winner and because they allow cameras my mom was able to capture the moment. We popped the champagne and hung out a bit while I soaked it in. It was the best shopping experience hands down and it wasn’t the first bridal boutique I had been in. – Reviewed On Knot.com by Jillian R
A must-visit–where else can you walk down a runway?
That’s right, they have a runway. A lit-up runway, no less! I was pretty set on my dress by the time I got to La Belle Elaine’s, and none of the dresses there changed my mind, but man was it fun! They have some beautiful accessories in the foyer, and then they lead you back into the bridal salon itself. There are hundreds of dresses at all price-points (we saw a few under $800, most around $1500), huge dressing rooms and very helpful and personal attendants (as in, they come into the room with you to help you in and out of every dress). Your attending friends/family wait around the runway, which is surrounded by mirrors. Luckily, they also allow photography. Our attendant was very nice and not at all pushy, and took more than 2 hours with us. She also made really good suggestions about what type of dress would be best for my hair and skin color, and let me take as much time as I wanted in each dress, rather than trying to get me into and out of as many dresses as possible. A very fun experience! – Reviewed On Knot.com by Malissa K
Made the Day!
I loved my experience at La Belles! Plus, what average, non-model woman doesn’t want to walk a catwalk in beautiful gowns? The trying on is made fun at la belles when you strut a catwalk surrounded by mirrors – you’ll see what the groom will see and what your guests will see as you walk down the aisle. It was so fun! There’s also dresses to fit anyone’s budget. I tried on a $10,000 dress, and also some under $500. I ended up getting a killer deal on a one-of-a-kind off-the-rack dress that fit perfect! My assistant through the process was very complimentary and made me feel beautiful! She even cried when she saw me in my dress! I highly recommend visiting – it’s worth your time! – Reviewed On Knot.com by Jessica P
Great service, no pressure, affordable!
this place is everything you want in a bridal salon and more. they have an amazing runway lined with mirrors where you can walk & see the dress and how it moves. it makes the experience so much fun. all the dresses are much higher quality than a lot of salons i went to and all of the dresses were very reasonably priced. the best part of the whole experience was shopping and purchasing my dress from stacey. she was so patient and nice and never pressured me to buy or make a decision. i can not say enough great things about her. she really made the whole process so easy and i felt confident in every step of the process because of her. – Reviewed On Knot.com by Morgan A
Delightful and accommodating!
The ladies at La Belle Elaine’s Bridal were lovely – helpful and accommodating, suggestive but not overwhelming. Respectful of price points and goals and will get you the best look for your comfortable money. Love the runway to get a real feel for your dress! – Reviewed On Knot.com by Erin T
Great selection, helpful staff
My experience at La Belle Elaine’s was great. My consultant was so helpful and honest. Best of all she reminded me that choosing a dress is my choice and helped me not get caught up in my party’s opinions. They are a little pricy, but were always respectful of my budget. I never felt pressured to buy anything. – Reviewed On Knot.com by Katy O
Love the “runway”!
The only dress shop that had what I wanted – nothing too poofy or “bridey” or princessy. My dress was from a local Seattle designer – very soft yet sleek, with subtle lace, very light crystal beading, and a very small train. The shop was easy to work with – alterations are done right in store. As mentioned in the review title, they have a fantastic elevated catwalk/runway you can show off your dress on! – Reviewed On Knot.com by Michelle L
BELLE OF THE BALL!
I LOVED La Belle Elaine’s! They were the first wedding dress shop I went to, and I think i got a little spoiled. I was brought to a private room where one of the ladies helped me try on as many dresses as I wanted to and was so attentive without being pushy (especially since I wasn’t ready to buy at the time). I went other places after and did NOT have the same experience (had a horrible experience at David’s Bridal). I ended up going back and trying on the VERY FIRST DRESS i tried on at Belle Elaine’s and it was perfect! I have had SO MANY compliments on my dress. Best part? It was only $1100. May seem steep to some, but I’m told other dresses that look similar cost almost up to $10,000! DEFINITELY recommend La Belle Elaine’s. They helped me find the perfect dress, let me come in as many times as I wanted to try it on, did great alterations, steamed my dress before the wedding, and I’ll be taking my dress to them to have dry cleaned and preserved as well. The alterations, steaming, and dry cleaning are extra $ – but well worth it for a dress i am IN LOVE WITH!!! – Reviewed On Knot.com by Ashlie D
Good selection, good price range, and different dresses than I’ve seen everywhere else. I bought my dress here and the service was excellent, and I’ve yet to see my dress anywhere else! – Reviewed On 5/15/2012 Chase P
