Nordstrom Wedding Dresses Review



Lovely gowns and well-regarded customer service earn this department store a top spot on our list of best cheap wedding dresses. You can order online or buy at any of the 18 stores with a "wedding suite." Brides rave about dress quality, quick delivery, helpful consultants, and an easy return policy.

A department store might not be on your radar when you start the hunt for a low-cost wedding gown, but Nordstrom is sending out signals loud and clear. This venerable retailer wins plaudits in Nordstrom wedding dress reviews for the carefully chosen selection of sophisticated dresses by various designers. No crinoline skirts, no poufy sleeves, and if you want a veil, you'll have to shop somewhere else. About a quarter of the collection sells for $500 or less and prices start below $200. The reviews that we found are posted on the company's website and are, for the most part, glowing. No low-cost dress that has been reviewed earns less than 3.5 stars. A $298 chiffon gown with a mermaid silhouette by Adrianna Papell earns almost entirely positive reviews for its flattering fit and elegant look. Some of the white, cream, and off-white dresses are perfectly suitable for a gala or other formal affair, and some can be ordered in different colors.

This upscale chain, located in malls around the country, sells wedding gowns online or at wedding suites in 18 of its stores. The suites are staffed with wedding consultants (appointments preferred), but you can also consult with a stylist via live chat or telephone. Customer service wins applause from shoppers posting Nordstrom wedding dress reviews for helpful sales associates, moderately priced alterations, and a generous return policy that lets you order several dresses to see which fits best. And, as Nordstrom wedding dress reviews posted on Wedding Bee note, the retailer makes good on mistakes.

Nordstrom is a full-service wedding provider -- with all the necessities for your bridal party, including the guys and your little helpers, as well as jewelry, shoes, lingerie, and perfume -- and delivers top quality at affordable prices.
