This is Judy the owner of The Bridal Secret and my business is very much open and this listing of closed in an error on behalf of Citysearch.........................
The secret is out... The Bridal Secret Rocks! – Judy is a bridal gown angel! My Mom and I had our first appointment ever to shop for a bridal gown in January of this year (2011). Our first stop, The Bridal Secret. I had never tried on a wedding gown before and was a bit apprehensive. I'm not a dress person to begin with, I'm more of a jeans and a t-shirt kind of gal. Once we arrived at the salon, Judy and her lovely staff greeted us and had us fill out a form and gave us number cards 1-5 to start shopping for dresses that I would like to try on as a starting point. Her shop is immaculate! Judy and her staff assisted us with a few of our selections, because it was hard for me to choose just 5 gowns to start with, they were all so amazing. The first 4 were beautiful, but the 5th dress was the one. I said, "Yes to the dress" on the 5th try, at the 1st shop we had ever been to, amazing!! I was beyond ecstatic. My Mom couldn't believe it. The dress was exactly what I had been dreaming of. My Mom and I thought the dress shopping would be the most time consuming and frustrating part of the wedding planning. From the moment I pur on that dress, Judy and I were like 2 peas in a pod! I love that lady! I had a little bit of a wedding crisis and had to bump my wedding date up 4 months, but she stayed completely calm, while I was going a mile a minute and losing my mind! I didn't think it was possible to love that dress more than I already did but every fitting I had, I grew more in love with my gown and with Judy!! She is so knowledgeable about eveything that has to do with wedding gowns and fashion. I felt so comfortable with her, that I completely put all my trust in her, and boy did it pay off. She made that gown fit like a glove, it was the most comfortable dress I have ever worn, she made it so easy for my MOH and BM to bustle me and she made me feel stunning! My wedding was in June (2011) and my Mom and I still say that the best part of the entire wedding process, besides the actual wedding day, was the day we bought the gown in January, because we had such a wonderful experience at The Bridal Secret. Not only did I leave the shop with the most incredible dress, I left with an incredible friend too.. Judy you rock! You made my wedding day perfect and I can't thank you enough for everything you did for me.
You've found the one! – Totally perfect! What a fun and rewarding and special experience! Judy and her staff were absolutely amazing, incredibly helpful, kind, genuine, and good listeners. She found the perfect gown for me...I feel like a million bucks but didn't have to pay that (they respected my budget and my tastes, absolutely)...I found a unique, one-of-a-kind, designer gown, without having to order it or deal with the hassles and costs of other stores. I have never written an online review before, but this was amazing and inspiring! Everyone should feel like a queen and be treated like one, and I was! A unique jewel!
Judy saves the day!!! – Just 2 weeks before my New Years Eve wedding last year, I was in a complete panic because I had purchased 2 wedding veils (NOT from the Bridal Secret) and hated both of them. I thought for sure I was out of time to try purchasing a third and would have to make the best of one of them. I decided to give it one last try and send a message to Judy, with my fingers crossed! Later that day she had messaged me back explaining that she thought that a calf length veil would be perfect and that she could make one for me in time for my big day! I wanted cathedral length, and wasn't sure about the calf length at first but she suggested I come in with my gown and I could try one on. So I did and she was so right! Not only did she make the veil in less than 2 weeks, she HAND DELIVERED it to me at work! I was so upset about not having the right veil, Judy totally saved the day! I wish I had known about her earlier and purchased my dress from her as well! I will refer every bride I know to her! She is a wonderful and professional business woman who really understands the needs of a bride.
Best Bridal Shop Around! – I highly recommend The Bridal Secret in Quincy to any future bride out there!
My family found Judy at the Bridal Secret 10 years ago when my sister bought her gown from Judy. 4 years later when I was a bride myself, I knew The Bridal Secret would be where I bought MY gown.
Judy has a large selection of gorgeous gowns however, it is not just her gowns that make her store great. It is her years of experience in the business, her exceptional service and professionalism that makes her store stand out from the rest!
Judy's work and attention to detail on my gown and bridesmaid dresses was fantastic!
Run, Don't Walk! to The Bridal Secret in Quincy! You will not be disappointed!
Thanks for making my gown beautiful on my wedding day Judy! Mary G.
In Repsonse to the fictious JJ123abc :0) – Dear JJ123abc's,
I find your comments and review curious and suspect.
If you genuinely were one of my brides you would know that when you do purchase a gown from me, you are given the information in writing regarding my payment policy on alts and it is the complete opposite of what you stated.
Second, at a final fitting I make a point of having a bride do a few things to ensure her gown fits properly.
Futhermore anyone who knows me knows I would never let a bride leave with a gown that was not perfect.
I can handle criticism and also capable of making mistakes, however I really loathe disengenious posters.
Ironic that you werent brave enough to post with a real name.
Mixed review – I liked the dresses. They had a nice selection and they were clean. But there are a lot of dress shops with nice dresses Judy has a big personality but can be brash. She will bowl you over even if you have a strong personality. I bought a dress and asked to have it shortened. When I tried it on, it wasnt short enough. I asked about it and was shot down very quickly. Despite my strong personality I could not stand up to Judy's attitude. My dress turned out to be way too long and I ended up carrying my train all evening at my wedding. I made do but was NOT pleased with myself for not pushing this issue and NOT PLEASED with Judy for not listening to me. My advice? Consider buying a dress there but definitely get the alterations done elsewhere. Once you hand over the money for alterations in advance (which is required) you have no power whatsoever. Good luck.
Judy is the BEST ! This Bridal Store is the ONE ! – I had the most wonderful experience at The Bridal Secret - From the minute I called to make the appointment Judy was so AWESOME - she is warm, welcoming and ready to get right down to business- It is amazing how she just knows what you will look good in and picks it ! I was so lucky to not only get to work with Judy , but her amazing staff Donna and Jill were there to help me along the way - The dresses are absolutely GORGEOUS - I picked out dresses with the help of my mom, aunt and mother in law to be - and then Judy came in with the ONE ! Something I would have never thought to try myself but she is the DRESS WHISPERER - It is a beautiful ballgown that is flattering to my figure - and the cost was unbelievable for the quality and style of gown - so reasonable ! - I lucked out so much by going to the Bridal Secret - it was my first and last stop and I would reccomend this store to anyone - I cant wait for my February fitting !
Best bridal salon in Boston area!!! Love this store!!! – I would love to share my great experience at Bridal Secret. From the moment I walked in I was enchanted by the gorgeous gowns and the ambiance of this store. I knew I will find the gown of my dream here. Judy, the owner and her assistant Jill were very helpful and knowledgeable. They help me find the perfect dress for MY figure! All of the dresses that I tried on were beautiful, and they offered to make any custom changes to the dress until it was just perfect for me. The dresses are high quality and the prices on the gowns are AMAZING! I did my alteration there and it was just perfect. Every time I went to the salon for my fitting I was very exited and full of positive emotions for the entire day. I am very happy I purchased my gorgeous dress at Bridal Secret and would highly recommend it to all bride!
Amazing dresses, and customer service!!!
This is the place! – What can be a gruesome experience becomes fun and productive if you go to The Bridal Secret. The gowns are gorgeous, and the prices are fabulous. Whether you want to be a princess for a day, or you just want a rockin' party, Judy will have the gown for you. Judy's staff will help you in and out of your selected gowns, and they will do so patiently. Even though they may have seen this very scene a thousand times, they behave as though there is no where they would rather be than helping you. Judy is a sensitive, caring individual who wants every prospective bride who walks into her shop to walk out happy and excited. My daughters and I are not the easiest trio to please, but our time at Judy's shop was an experience we will all remember with great fondness.
