As a tall curvy plus size woman I have never felt so comfortable in my life shopping for a dress especially my wedding dress. The boutique goes above and beyond any boutique or store. They have a beautiful selection! I recently had my wedding on September 10, 2021 after being rescheduled due to Covid! And I couldn’t be any happier with my selection! After losing an extensive amount of way to the medical issues it meant the world to me to feel like a princess and have my dream wedding! Hands-down The best wedding wedding shop in the state of New Jersey! Thank you curvy bride for making me feel beautiful.

I cannot say enough amazing things about The Curvy Bride! I was having the worst time at three other boutiques and this was a complete 180! Super professional, clean, elegant from the moment we walked in the door it was wonderful. Michelle, Purvin, Kaitlyn and another nice girl whose name I didn’t get were so helpful and wonderful. I feel so confident now and my anxieties about finding a dress have melted away and now I feel I can really be excited about my wedding! I can’t thank you all enough! <3

Wow I have so many positive words to say about this place!!! I felt SO special and so accepted here. The staff are phenomenal, and the store is set up so perfectly. I did not end up selecting my dress here, but it is not for any other reason other than my search to find my ONE! It's absolutely worth the drive if you don't live close. Thank you for being so accepting and inclusive.

LOVE LOVE LOVED my upgraded appointment at the curvy bride. Being greeted I felt the positive energy. It was no fuss no mess. My consultant Maria took me right over to start pulling dresses and was transparent with my budget. Maria was truthful, kind, and complimentary and honestly I cannot thank her enough. Thank you Maria and all of the staff for helping me find the dress of my dreams!!

I said "yes" to my dress yesterday at The Curvy Bride, and the whole ride home, my mom, my sister, and I raved about how wonderful the appointment was from beginning to end. Michelle and Victoria really made me feel safe--they both wore masks for the entirety of my appointment. I felt incredibly heard--every dress I tried on was so beautiful and exactly what I'd told them I was looking for. I felt so pampered and beautiful! I'm so glad. I'd been looking at this boutique since before I was even engaged--I really wanted a place where I could see myself as a bride and not have to worry and fret about the sizes! The Curvy Bride was my first and last bridal boutique! Thank you!!!

I drove about a hour and half to get there becuase there is no plus size wedding dress store near me. To me this was definitely worth the drive!! Going into the store and having dresses actually fit me(with different options!!) was honestly one of the best feelings. I felt so confident and beautiful knowing I chose the right dress!! I 10/10 recommend this place and I tell everyone about it.

The Curvy Bride was even more amazing than I had imagined. I truly felt so special, got to try on any and every dress that I liked. Everyone was so welcoming, and so many employees stopped in to tell me how beautiful each dress looked on me. I truly felt like I was a bride. Dayna was my stylist and I could not recommend her enough. She listened to me the entire appointment, reassured me when needed, and in the end took my favorite things from each dress and found me my perfect dress, with everything I loved in the other dresses. It felt like this dress she pulled was made for me. I cannot say enough phenomenal things about my experience and I would recommend The Curvy Bride and Dayna to any plus size bride!!! Thank you to The Curvy Bride team!!!

I found my wedding dress at the Curvy Bride and was really happy with the staff who assisted me. When I arrived for my appointment they only showed me dresses that were in my price range and helped me pull different styles because I was unsure of the type of dress I was looking for. I ended up finding my actual size with a sample dress and was able to walk out that next day when I came back for the dress to purchase it. I felt no pressure to buy the dress and the staff were extremely friendly and professional. Being a plus size bride I was having insecurities during the wedding dress shopping process, but at the Curvy Bride I really appreciated everyone being so encouraging and supportive!

My Aunt had remembered the shop in passing, as she was in the area for my cousin's prom dresses. We booked the appointment because this was the first plus size bridal shop we had seen since starting dress shopping. It was so wonderful! It was very personal experience, and it truly made the difference. The previous weekend, trying on dresses at a corporate store, it didn't feel like they were really trying to find your dream dress, more or less looking for the sale. TCB was a complete 180° and I will forever be grateful to my consultant Dayna, who gave me the best day, which was my yes day! I ordered my dress in April, and they advised it would be 6 months at least, and early September I received the call my dress was ready! Even though it is a bit of a drive from us, I will never not recommend this shop enough!

I said YES to the dress! I cannot begin to express how thankful I have for this shop. All my curvy brides should make this their first and least stop on their dress journey. Setting up the appointment was easy. I spoke with the owner and consultant in advance of my appointment to let them know my wants. My appointment was on a Wednesday afternoon and we basically had the place to ourselves. They stuck to my budget and encouraged me to try on dresses out of my perceived comfort zone. And I found it! The perfect dress for me and under budget!

Soooo I showed up at 10am with my bridal party, unaware that I never made the appt (that I mindlessly forgot to do) and their Director of Operations- Pervin- took me in and gave me an impromptu full bridal experience. I ended up finding my dream dress and cannot wait to go back (with an actual appointment ?) in a few months to try it back on!!! It was the most amazing experience. I felt so beautiful and felt like I could try on any dress in the store with ease! It was really the best experience I could’ve asked for. Ps- you should still make an appointment!!! I got really lucky that it worked out today ❤️

From the moment I walked in the door at The Curvy Bride, I was greeted with amazing customer service and made to feel so special. They had a nice private area for me and my friends set aside for our appointment. Dayna was my bridal consultant, and she was such a spark of joy. Spending time with her was like being with an old friend! She was a great listener and it only took a few dresses for me to find the one! I was able to buy it off the rack and take it home with me, making it such an easy and enjoyable experience. The dress was super flattering, beautiful, and simple, just what I wanted. My friends loved Dayna and her personality was truly a joy! Highly recommend Dayna and this lovely shop, thank you for everything!

I can not express enough how much I LOVE this bridal store and the people in it. Everyone was so kind to me during my try on appointment and all my alteration appointments. It was so easy to feel beautiful in this store and my dress was loved by everyone on my big day. Highly recommend.

I went to the store in July to find my wedding dress and the women working there make you feel like the most beautiful woman and they hype you up any time you feel even the slightest insecure about anything. I can not recommend the curvy bride enough! It was a pleasant surprise to have to be clipped into a dress because it’s too big on me. Made me love every minute of my experience there. Every plus size woman deserves to feel this way when dress shopping for their big day!

I went to the curvy bride a few weeks ago and had the most amazing experience! Dayna was my consultant and she is so sweet & kind. She made me feel so comfortable in my own skin and for the first time I didn’t feel like I was trying on plus size clothing. I was dreading dress shopping and tried to put it off, but as soon as we arrived, Dayna assured me that we were going to have fun and she did exactly that. Everyone would walk by and gave me compliments & made me feel so beautiful. Thank you to everyone involved with the curvy bride. Truly my favorite shopping trip ever!!! :)

I had the absolute best experience here. I was really nervous I would feel defeated, upset, and frustrated when looking for my wedding dress. Everyone was so helpful! My stylist was Maria but another stylist also gave me a recommendation and it ended up being the dress I took home! I highly recommend for your bridal needs!

I had a wonderful experience at Curvy Bride. The staff were kind and patient throughout what can be a very stressful process! I said yes to my dress and came back a few months later to pick it up. I purchased a veil and headpiece (headband) from the shop and was so pleased with the custom service. I ended up going to a seamstress closer to my home but knew their services were available if needed.

I found my dream dress at The Curvy Bride and had an incredible experience while doing so! As someone who struggles with self-confidence, I was really anxious going into my appointment but Maria my consultant was so kind and made me feel at ease. One of the first things she said to me was “size is just a number” and we talked about the importance of creating a dress that fits me rather than stressing about the size on the tag. The store has a huge selection of gorgeous gowns in all different price ranges. Michelle the owner and her team are amazing and I’m so thankful for the dress shopping experience they gave me with my family!

I had the BEST experience at the Curvy Bride. Dayna my consultant was so kind, so helpful, she made me feel like the only bride in the salon. She was so knowledgeable and resourceful. She helped me find beautiful straps to add to my dress to make me more comfortable and a veil that complimented the dress perfectly. She listened and understood the vision I had in my head and she picked out the most beautiful dresses for me to try on. PLEASE!! If you are looking for a wedding dress come see these wonderful girls! They made shopping for a dress the most wonderful experience ever!! You will not regret it!

Best business around! Mary Ann was my stylist and she was so helpful and fun! Ashleigh also helped pull my dresses of choice! My best friend got her dress here a few years ago and once I got engaged I knew I had to come here for my dress! Michelle and Pervin always make you feel like family. They are all the best!! Thank you for making the process so fun and easy!!

The amount of love and enthusiasm I have for The Curvy Bride is unparalleled! When you arrive you are greeted by the sweetest team of women who immediately make you feel beautiful, valued, and like family. As if it could get any better, I could fit ANY DRESS in the store! They carry their samples in plus sizes so any bride can have that magical wedding dress moment! The spaces where you try on dresses are closed off so you are the only one in the space which makes you feel even more comfortable. The angel on earth that is Pervin listened to everything I wanted in a dress and helped me find multiple different styles to try on. The women at this store - staff and customers alike - are like your own team of hypewomen. We would run into other brides in the parking lot and it felt like we were one big family. I still can't believe how easy and actually enjoyable this process was! Make The Curvy Bride your first and last stop for the wedding dress of your dreams!

Don’t look elsewhere if you are a plus size bride!!! I had a wonderful experience at The Curvy Bride. Michelle - Owner, was absolutely amazing to work with. I felt so important the day of my appointment. The whole experience was just what I was needing to be able to find what type of dress I like and look good in! My guests that came with me were included in every part of the dress finding experience. I can not recommend The Curvy Bride enough! Thank you all at The Curvy Bride!

Absolutely the BEST experience. I went in for my first ever dress appointment and had no idea what to expect. I hate my body and am the most indecisive person ever. I choose the curvy bride because I knew in my heart if I went to a salon that didn’t have dresses in my size and they had to bungee cord me my self esteem would have dropped even more. When I tell you I’ve never felt so beautiful as my consultant Maryann made me feel. So many options in so many sizes and the prices were great too. She knew exactly what would look good on me and even in what order to have me try them on. She never rushed me and was an actual angel the whole appointment. I said yes to my dress my first time shopping and can’t stop dreaming of putting it on again. Thank you Maryann and the curvy bride for helping me see myself like I never have before! ????
