Great store – La reine has not been on Newbury street for 2 years, also never had a store in Wattertown, all dresses have tags on, and price, Waltham store is 2 floors full of dresses, bridesmaid and mother of the bride. The second floor is the sale floor wonderful surprises are to be found and great prices. No alteration but Elena an independant seamstress is in the same building her prices are very reasonable and her alteration is excellent . Always miltary have a discounts,
Worst bridal service I have ever received. – I went to the Waltham store, staff was unfriendly from the minute i walked in the door. They took their time coming to greet me and give directions, then they left me in a room for over a half an hour and didn't say a word. There were 3 employees in the store and I was the only customer. They are lazy and desperately need a course in customer service.
My Dream Dress at a dreamy price – I'm not really the type of girl who has always imagined of her wedding day with doves and white icing and the whole nine, in fact I wanted to elope. So I bought a really cheap, plain gown at David's Bridal's. Then my fiance bought an Armani suit in which to get married. Standing next to him, my dress looked it's price, and I began to cry.
This happened three weeks before the wedding.
Then next day my fiance brought me to Newbury Street where I was sure that I would be appauled by the prices and not find anything I liked. The minute we entered the store those women made me feel so special and they found me, and I am not kidding, the perfect dress. Not frilly, totally elegant, beautiful, I could not have designed a more perfect dress for me, and the price was completely reasonable (less than $1200). When my fiance' saw me in the dress all he said was "We'll take it."
The clerks started to cry, I started to cry.
And my dress was just as if I'd always imagined it.
I loved this Place!!!!! – La Reine Bridal was by far the best place I went wedding dress shopping. They were so welcoming. Every step of the way my bridal consultant made me feel at ease. She listened to my requests, listened to my price range and in the end found my dream dress. I thought they were the only store that deserved my money. Yolanda's is so over priced I was shocked to see the same dress at La Reine's for 4,000 less!!!!! Please don't be fooled other stores are totally out to screw you! If you are a normal person with a normal sized budget the only place I recomend is La Reine!!!! Good luck with your hunt!
The Best Couture Bridal Shop! – I had a great experience at La Reine. My friend and I came in to buy shoes on a Saturday without appointments, and the staff at La Reine was so nice. They ask you to take off your shoes, but only to protect the carpet from dirt, which would get on the dresses. The selection is very beautiful, and Jana who helped us was very, very nice. I have been in a few stores where I did not feel as welcomed, but I felt so appreciative and happy for the great treatment I received. I am a hair colorist on Newbury street, and I will be sending alot of my clients to this shop. It is expensive, but the quality of the merchandise is so lovely. I would reccomend this shop so highly. I did not feel any pressure whatsoever to buy. Great service!
Editorial Review – Local bridal shop provides its patrons with one-on-one consultations and an extensive selection of gowns at all price levels.
loved la reine – excellent service pleasant and cosy atmosphere, visited boutique la reine newbury st. have reem acra,romonakeveza, rivini, lovely comfortable couches to sit on dresses are beautiful, clean and excellent conditions,some of their prices are less than other stores, staff friendly and knowledgeable, Waltham was recommended, went on week day we had over an hour tons of dresses to try on much bigger place staff very helpfull we looked at pronovias etc. Highly recommand them
Unhelpful, Rude Service – I visited La Reine Bridal in Watertown. The salesladies were unhelpful, and I felt very rushed. After trying on 3 dresses, I still had not found a dress I liked, and asked to try on more. The saleslady refused, saying that I would only get confused if I tried on too many dresses. This after only 25 minutes of an hourlong appointment! In addition, I felt very pressured to buy and the saleslady did not seem to have any patience. I have spoken to other friends who had similar experiences here. They have lovely dresses, but I would not give such rude service my business. If I'm going to pay > $1000 for a gown, I expect to be treated with respect.
Loved LaReine! – I disagree with the other reviews. I bought my wedding gown at LaReine and several of my friends bought there, too. The staff is fantastic! They sit down with you and discuss budget and only pull things according to what you want to spend. Yes, they ask everyone to remove their shoes, so that their dresses keep in beautiful shape. All their gowns have price tags on them. Of course you can get a gown at Vows for half the price - they have been worn by other brides. Between LaReine's 2 stores they carry 1000 gowns ranging in price from $500 to $10,000, so they don't only service high-end brides. Their prices ARE compatible with other stores. Fact of the matter is, I bought my dress there, the staff were wonderful, the seamstress was an expert - all contributed to me having the most amazing day of my life!
fit for a princess – if you're royalty (or have the pocketbook to rival a royal family) they'll treat you well. Otherwise, they'll be nice up to a point, then drop you as soon as someone with more means comes into the store. Very big on having you sign up for their (overpriced) auxiliary services.
