I went to the Altar Bridal just to “look” and ended up finding my dress! Ava did such a fantastic job of helping me try out different styles, but also with giving me details about each designer. From the moment I walked in I felt at ease. Friendly staff, clean and professional environment, and great selection.

Loved the shop! Walked in not knowing what I wanted and walked out completely blown away with finding my perfect dress for a GREAT price! Will recommend to anyone I know looking for a wedding dress!

The Altar was an amazing experience! I’m so glad I went there. Not only did I find the most beautiful wedding dress, but the staff was super invested in my search and truly did everything they could to support me throughout the process.

The Altar Bridal team was absolutely phenomenal. From the moment I walked in, I felt at home. Ava and Monique were so excited for me to look for my dress but they did not push any dresses on me. They asked me about how I met my fiancé and even about relationship's journey. I really appreciated them getting to know me as a person, not just as a customer. Ava and Monique gave me time and space to explore and find potential dresses but also gave great suggestions like adding a belt to a dress. Ava and Monique even cried with me multiple times; this is a testimony to their genuine hearts and how invested they are in their customers. This was my first wedding dress shopping experience and it was also my last because I SAID YES TO THE DRESS (thanks to Ava!). I highly recommend coming here.

Simply the best experience. The ladies are caring, knowledgeable, warm, and friendly. The dresses are reasonably priced. Ava was extremely helpful and made the dress shopping a lovely experience. E. Veli is a master seamstress. Her attention to detail is phenomenal. Thank you for making my daughter's wedding day unforgettable.
You are a ☆☆☆☆☆ business.
