Boutiques for Bridesmaid Dresses

Hi everyone!

I was wondering if anyone knew of some boutiques in the Tampa/ St. Pete area that are good for bridemaids dresses. We're looking to spend between $100-$150 (or a little more for the right one!). Also, if anyone has bought their BM dresses at David's or AA and can tell me how the experience was, that would be helpful, too!

    I went to Alfred Angelos in Tampa on Dale Mabry and they were VERY nice. I ended up getting the bridesmaid dresses from them and they were $155.00 each dress. A lot of the other dresses I tried on were around $130ish.  They didn't put any pressure on me to make a decision. The only advice I would give is make an appointment if you want someone to help you. If you just want to look you can go in, but they usually don't have someone available. I also went to David's bridal in Clearwater and they were very rude to me. As soon as I said I was looking for bridesmaid dresses no one wanted to help me. Good luck on your search!

    We got ours from Davids. It was awful. They were completely rude and acting like you were interupting them if you needed help. If I ever had to do it again I'd STAY AWAY from David's.

    Plus, on a side note, their colors tend to be harder to match. I've had problems and I've heard the same from several brides.

    I really loved going to Bella Bridesmaids on MacDill in Tampa. They had a range of prices and worked me to find exactly what I was looking for.

    We ended up getting ours from David's in Clearwater. Although, I found that the service was much better at the Tampa location. Even though the service wasn't great, we were very fortunate to find my girls dresses on clearance for only $50 each! So make sure you check out the clearance rack! They came in sooner than expected and their alterations were quick. So, for $50 we couldn't complain. I have heard great things about Bella Bridemaids as well. GL!

    At least at David's you can order accessories all in the same color.

    My girls are buying theirs wherever they want, but MOH got her from David's in Tampa. They are SO nice there. Even when I told them I bought my dress somewhere else (after I had tried on at DB).

    Her dress was on the expensive side at $170, but I think that is the priciest  BM dress they have.

    My bridesmaids are getting their dresses at David's.  We went to the Tampa store and had Kerry...she was wonderful.

    I ended up finding the perfect dresses for my girls at CC's Boutique in St. Pete. Great Customer Service and they came in early too!

    I second the Tampa David's. I had a great experience there for both my dress and the BMs dresses. I didn't have Kerry but Jenny is absolutely wonderful!!!

    My MOH tried on dress at AA and found one, but she is out of state and ordered from up there.
    I also got my dress there. I recommend Nikki, but not their alterations.
