HORRIBLE experience!! purchased my wedding dress10 months before my wedding. The consultant we worked with was amazing, and I was so excited! It all went downhill from there. The seamstress worked a very limited schedule (which did not include weekends), and being from out of town this would have been nice to know before I purchased my dress. They would not work with me to schedule a fitting so I had to take an entire day off work. This would be fine except i had to have 4 fittings because it was never done right. 2 weeks before my wedding i came for my final fitting and had been told my dress would be ready to take with me unless there was any last min. alterations that needed to be done. When I arrived my dress was EXACTLY the same as it looked at my last fitting...nothing had been done! Not only had they not done the alterations they were supposed to do, but they were also supposed to clean the dress because the bottom was a little dirty from my bridal portrait. The dress was still dirty! It hadn't been touched! I explained how I came all the way to try on and take the dress with me. My appointment was at 10 am and they were not able to work with me to have the dress ready by the end of that day to take home. Which would mean I'd have to make another trip the week of my wedding to get the dress. What bride wants or has time to do that?? Luckily, I had a bridesmaid who lived in charlotte. I was worried because at this point I did not trust Nitsa's but they assured me the dress would be altered correctly (including the belt sewn onto the dress) pressed and ready to wear. On my wedding day when I pulled the dress out it was a wrinkled disaster!!! I had to have it sent to be pressed 6 hours before I walked down the aisle. And...the belt wasn't sewn on like it was supposed to be!!! I would never recommend for anyone to go to this place!
I would never recommend Nitsa's. I just spent $350 on a bridesmaid dress that doesn't fit and cannot be worn. The assistant manager is clueless and doesn't know the dresses. I had to go and buy a second dress and the bride had to add another bridesmaid to her party (which now adds extra $$$) so we could buy cheap (and by cheap I mean $250) off the rack bridesmaid dresses. Nitsa's has done nothing to help or make the situation better. Disappointed doesn't cut it, I am furious.
Couldn't ask for more. Like many of the other reviewers, I worked with Naomi. I can't say enough about how wonderful she made my dress shopping experience. She was so patient with me during my three appointments and so helpful in helping me choose between dresses. When I told her that I couldn't get a particular dress out of my head that she didn't have a sample of in the Charlotte store, she offered to have a sample brought down from the Winston Salem store for me to try on. I will be recommending Nitsa's and Naomi to everyone I know who is dress shopping!
Naomi is Amazing!!.
I'm so happy to see other people had such a WONDERFUL experience with Naomi as I did. She was so accommodating, knew exactly what she was talking about was so friendly. I can't say enough wonderful things about her. I went there with three little girls (all under 8) and she was so unbelievably patient with them and their antics. Even finding bridesmaids dresses and fake bouquets for them to try on making the experience fun for all.
She recommended a dress to me that required some imagination to create the dress of my dreams-much like what she did for Caroline's daughter. I was floored. I bought my dress that day and didn't expect to find anything. She is a doll. Just the best and so professional.
Wonderful Bridal Experience.
I have been a customer at Nitsa's for several occasions over the past few years and have bought formal and cocktail dresses from them, and I have always been very pleased with their unique and classy selection. When it came time to buy my wedding gown, I knew that I would find something perfect at Nitsa's. I had one-on-one attention with a bridal consultant, Naomi, who helped me pick out and try on several gowns! I ended up purchasing (and LOVING) a gown that she picked out for me that was the total opposite of what I had always seen myself in! She was so wonderful at detecting my style and body-type in order to find the most perfect dress for me, as well as other bridal accessories.
Once we bought the gown, my mother and I always enjoyed going back to Nitsa's for dress-fittings, and the seamstresses were always helpful and wonderful!
I highly recommend Nitsa's to anyone looking for a dress for a special occasion or wedding, and I know we will be returning when my sister gets married (whenever that will be!)
Best Bridal Store in the South !!. My experience shopping at Nitsas with my daughter for her wedding dress was incredible. We worked with Naomi Steinhart who used to work with Vera Wang in New York. SHE IS A MAGICIAN. My daughter knew exactly what she wanted her dress to look like and Naomi took a dress from the collections and "recreated " it to match my daughter's vision....and it is PERFECT!! We simply cannot recommend Naomi enough. She is delightful and enthusiastic and made us feel so special.
Everything I could have asked for.
I recently purchased my wedding gown from Nitsa's in Charlotte. Although I have not picked up the final product yet, I had such a positive experience with Crystal I felt compelled to write.
While gowns here average around $5000 you get what you pay for! On a Thursday morning I had plenty of help with the gowns and Crystal sat with me first to ask what I was looking for. She was friendly and honest and I thought to myself..."She would be a great friend!"
When after almost 2 hours I was "close" to a gown from a specific designer, she offered to have Naomi bring some additional gowns from the Winston location from that designer, and one of those eventually became my gown.
They are a true "custom" shop- trying to add additional ribbons and embellishments to make the gown "perfect".
I can't wait to get my gown, and I can't recommend the store enough. Ask for Crystal. She is amazing.
PS- She even came in the next day on her "day off" when the gowns came in from WS. Worth every penny.
Best Boutique in the area in SO MANY WAYS!.
I worked with Naomi at Nitsa's and she is simply the best!! Always accommodating, always honest (which is important) and always making the experience so special, she helps you find exactly what you want even if you're not sure going into it and then she continues to be by your side throughout the entire fitting. Every time, I left my dress fitting, I felt so much excitement about the wedding, which was a major breath of fresh air in the midst of stressful planning.
The entire Nitsa's staff was so helpful. Katie stepped in and worked with me when needed. The tailors are by far, the best and most experienced in Charlotte. They had to take my dress in two weeks before my wedding and when I put it on the morning of the ceremony, it fit like a glove. Also, the staff helped my mom find her rehearsal dinner dress last minute and made alterations with no problem.
Overall, this place is a gem. I shopped in Charleston, Atlanta and Raleigh and nothing compared to Nitsa's!
Amazing bridal experience. I recently tried on dresses with Katie and had a wonderful experience. She really listened to what I was looking for and she helped me select the perfect gown, which I purchased and cannot wait to wear. Additionally, Lillian, was extremely helpful in showing me what the alterations I requested would look like. This bridal salon is fantastic.
Was not interested in helping me!. I was very disappointed with my appointment to try on wedding gowns! Katie acted as if she did not want to help me try on gowns. Once I did try them on, she barely spoke 3 words in the dressing room with me. I was excited about going to Nitsa's but Katie's customer service was awful. My bridesmaid even made the comment, She could have cared less about helping you. I definitly will not go back for second time.
