Our clever brides – happily ever after…

“I had a great experience at Clever Brides. I never felt pressured to buy a dress and Christina was very helpful without being pushy. I got SO many compliments about my dress on my wedding day and I never would have been able to buy such a beautiful/fancy dress had it not been for her store. The inventory is very broad and there’s a style to suit just about anyone. I loved the idea of buying a dress this way and I am so happy I did!” 🙂


test-1“When shopping for wedding dresses, Kristin found her gown at Clever Bride Consignments. With a sweetheart neckline and floral accents, the Maggie Sottero gown had the wow factor Kristin was looking for.”

ruthI can’t tell you how happy and beautiful I felt in my wedding dress. It was perfect, simple and elegant. I received so many compliments… Everyone was surprised by my choice and said I looked gorgeous. My husband was awe struck (the reaction I was looking for). I ended up getting the french bustle and it really transformed the dress. A little accessorizing went a long way. Thank you again for all of your help!!!”


katyaI can’t say enough good things about Chris and her shop. I’m a fan of consignment stores in general, and I admit, was expecting a small, dark room filled with 10 or so dresses and a ton of trinkets. When I first walked in, I could hardly believe that this bright, airy salon was filled (in all sizes) with dresses on consignment! The prices are very reasonable, and everything is in perfect to near-perfect condition. Chris was kind enough to point out a quarter-sized stain on the very bottom corner of a dress I was considering, and I loved that I wasn’t being pressured to buy –rather, it felt as if I was chatting with a friend and slipping on bridal gowns. Give this place a visit and I promise you’ll be as delighted as I was.”

After obsessing about a certain designer’s dress for months, one that I did not think I would get anywhere for under $2,000 except maybe ordering it from ebay or online without actually trying it on or even if the color was right, I logged onto Clever Bride’s website last week, randomly, and scrolled through the inventory that was posted on the site.  I could not believe it when, there in plain sight, was THE dress; basically in the town next to me!!  It was beautifully pictured as I had seen it countless times, and according to the description – was close to my size.  I went in first thing on Saturday morning and met the owner, Chris, who had just received my voice mail inquiring if the dress was still available….and THERE IT WAS!!!!….on the rack right behind me!!  I could not believe I was about to try it on, and long story short, it is THE dress and it fit me almost like a glove, and looked even better on than I could have imagined.  It was in pristine condition, never been walked down the aisle as it was a designer sample, and I knew as soon as I put it on and Chris “bustled” me in, I was taking this dress home with me!  Chris is amazing, she took her time with me; she let me try on some other dresses (just so that I could tell my Mom I did!!) and never once rushed me or tried talking me into purchasing anything.   We both knew by my reaction that this was MY dress and I still am in shock that it is hanging in my closet and I try it on every chance I get because its still surreal!  I would recommend this shop to any bride, bridesmaid or mother of the bride/groom as she has an AMAZING inventory of clean, pristine, designer and bridal shop gowns and dresses at truly affordable prices for anyone who is in the market for one.  She also has amazing jewelry, accessories and veils for your special day as well and yes, I also walked out with a gorgeous Swarovski hair pin for less than half of what I had seen it sell for retail.  I’m forever in Chris’ debt for consigning this dress and cannot wait to wear it on my wedding day!  I will always refer anyone in the bridal market to Chris and her amazing shop!”

I had the most wonderful experience at the Clever Bride. I am on a very tight budget for my wedding and was able to find the perfect gown on my budget. The selection was amazing and so was the service. I’m telling all my friends to stop here to look for their dresses.”

If you’re on a budget (or even if you’re not but think it’s a little crazy to spend thousands of dollars on a wedding dress) go to Clever Bride Consignment! I recently went there and found the perfect dress for $400. Most of the dresses I tried on were under $500. Chris has a great variety of dresses and the atmosphere is amazing. If you go during the week you have to make an appointment so you are the only one there. Chris let us pick out dresses to try on, then helped with the putting on, arranging, tightening and taking off of all the dresses. She is very partial unless you ask for a specific opinion. The little store is very calming and Chris is good at finding dresses you might have missed. Some of her dresses are consigned, but she also has a lot that are new samples from designers. The one I got is brand new. I went to another consignment shop (Vows in Watertown) the next day and found it to be much more expensive as well as more hectic.  I highly recommend Clever Bride to anyone!”
