Awful. Just plain awful. I wish I would have listened to the reviews and stayed clear of this place. Workers are not knowledgeable about policies, colors, time frames. THEY screw up and don't order dresses and expect you to suffer with no plans to make it right with you. I would NEVER go back and would NEVER suggest them to anyone. Brides, go elsewhere for your dresses/bridesmaid dresses. Babettes is a disaster.
Must shop here!! – I can't believe I haven't heard about Babettes until my senior year! My friend had gotten her homecoming dress here and couldn't stop talking about how the amazing selection. I knew I wanted a red dress and the employee, who was my age, showed me her favorite red gown and I fell in love! It was a size 10 and I am a size 0. I was a little skeptical how it would fit after alterations, but it fit PERFECTLY!! I swear the seamstresses hands are made of magic - I highly reccomend T. She is the best of the best. I will be coming back for other dances!
Best Selection!! – After reading some of the reviews online, I wasn't sure what to expect at Babettes. I wanted to share my fabulous experience with everyone. When I first walked in, I was welcomed by a very friendly staff. I was a little overwhelmed by the large variety of dresses, but there was a great selection - there's something for everyone! A consultant worked one on one with me and was extremely patient and helpful. Even though there were so many beautiful dresses, I have had my eye on a Sherri Hill dress for quite some time. Other places I had gone to could not order the dress so I was extremely happy they could! They took my measurements and the dress fit perfectly. Babettes is an experience that everyone needs to have. I will be back for prom!
DRESS SHOPPPING – I had a very good expierence at Babettes. Not only did they have a huge selection but the staff was wonderful. I have shopped here many times with my daughters and each time there was never any pressure on us to buy a dress. We were never rushed out of the store. They let us take our time in the dress rooming and looking around the store. The employees also helped my daughters pick out gowns; they all knew the merchandise well. They helped my daughters in and out of the dresses which was nice for me because i just got to sit and watch the fashion show haha. I would highly recommend going to babettes for any formal wear. They have a great selection and wonderfull staff!!
I <3 Babette's Cant wait for Homecoming next year! – I went to Babette's on Black Friday in hopes to find my prom gown and I did! I never knew Babette's had so many gowns. I swear I tried on 50 or more gowns and liked so many of them. It was so hard to decide which one I wanted because I liked a lot of them. The girl there was so nice and she gave me her opinion. She picked me out gowns I would have never thought looked good on me and she showed me even what she was wearing to Prom. It was nice to get an opinion from someone my age and not just my mom haha. I ended up falling in love with a gown that was more than my price range that my mom wanted me to stay in. But Babette's was having a Black Friday sale so I was able to use that discount and put it on layaway. Now I can make payments up until prom. I'm so glad I went to Babette's. I can't wait for prom! :)
Babette's was very understanding and nice! – Babette's Staff went above and beyond to find me a perfect dress! My daughter is getting married this May and I needed a dress that fit my body correctly and was in my price range. I had went to other bridal stores and the staff was very rude and would tell me everything I tried on looked gorgeous. (Even if the gown looked completely horrible!) I was about to give up but I had heard about this store and decided to give it one more try. I had went on their website and got called to make an appointment. The women I had spoke to told me that I didn't even need an appointment and that I could come in whenever I was able to. This was perfect because most places told us you had to have an appointment. I went to Babette's and the staff was very understanding and was able to work with my price range. They had dresses I could actually try on because most stores only carried up to size 10 and most women are not a size 10! I tried on numerous gowns and the staff told me what their opinion of the gown was and actually would tell me if it did not look good. They were very nice and even helped my daughter find the perfect bridesmaids gowns for her girls and gave a percentage off because she has so many! I decided to write a review because the happy customers usually do not write reviews and it is ashame for future customers to only read reviews from the few that had a bad experience. Thanks Babette's girls you were all wonderful! - Janet
Save yourself the trouble, Go somewhere else!! – My maid of honor and I went to go look at bridesmaid dresses two Saturdays ago. We wanted them ordered a certain way and the manager tried to look it up. She had no luck so she promised that she would call on Tuesday. My bridesmaids and I were excited to hear the news and patiently waited until about 3:30 Tuesday. I called and the girl who answered the phone had no knowledge whatsoever of the situation nor did anyone in the store. She politely told me that she would call the manager and find out which she did. As promised, she called me back and said "the manager emailed the designer and is still waiting for a reply, we PROMISE to call you back tomorrow with an update." No big deal atleast this girl actually called me back. I tell the girls and again I patiently wait until the next day until about 6. Still no phone call. I call again and no answer. You are not allowed to block your number and they have caller ID. I called 4-5 times during normal business hours, no answer. Finally, I call from a different phone number and they pick up right away. When they answered, I still received a generic answer that they would call me back. It's seriously been 2 weeks and I still have not received even a phone call to give me a single update. I don't know if they only saw two of us and figured it wouldn't be a big sale or what, but it was extremely rude how the whole situation was handled. Poor customer service!!! Save yourself the trouble. Unable to fulfill requests! Completely rude!!
I am happy to find this store. – After traveling to 5 different prom shops for the 2 weeks, my daughters friend ask us to come along to choose her gown for prom, and this was the most pleasant experience. My daughter was looking for a gown no one in Pittsburgh had and brought a picture to Babettes. They told her they have a manufactury to order that gown to my daughters size !!!!
I never even thought it was possible because it was a picture of a celebrity wearing a gown, and I was able to order it there for under $400 !!!
My daughters friend found a gown there too, one of the kind !!
Babettes customised it and no other company had this gown, our girls was the talk of the dance,
I was suprised to how many one of the kind gowns Babettes had, it is trully a secret find in Pittsburgh !! I will be shoping there for all formal ocasions.
Happy Married Bride! – I was in Babette's over the summer and had a wonderful experience! My wedding was this past October and my gown, mother, and bridesmaids all looked gorgeous. Babette's dressed my entire party including myself. I went to Babette's looking for a gown for my mother and ended up browsing through the bridal gowns. And there it was the perfect gown! I had found one and put it a deposit down on it but this gown was MUCH better. The appointment was originally for my mom but the consultants did not stop me from looking. Most places wont even let you walk around the racks by your own but Babette's did not mind. The gown I had chosen was not reorderable and a size 10. Im a size 6 but the consultants told me that was no problem we could have it altered to fit me perfectly. My mother also found a gown there and we found all my bridesmaids gowns. Babettes made this experience wonderful and im so happy I went there!
Babette's employees found "the one"- My wedding gown! – I am a bride to be and im so happy I went to Babette's. I am getting married in a few months and I am an early shopper. I went to babettes last May and found the perfect dress. I had been to many stores and found some gowns I liked but not the one. I went to Babettes during a very busy day with Prom but that didnt stop the consultants from taking their time with me. The consultants were not pushy and did not make me rush. I showed some pictures of gowns I liked to the consultant and she found a few gowns similar. I tried them on and they were just okay. Then she had an idea of me trying on a mermaid. I had never tried one on before because no one ever suggested it. I tried it on and I loved the style. So the consultant and some of the younger employees then went on a search for similar styles. They found me some and I tried them on found the one! I had been waiting for this feeling forever and I felt it that day. The employees were just so nice and took the time to even help my mom find a dress. Our appointment was not even for that and they still let her look. I would suggest Babettes to any bride that wants the perfect dress and good customer service.
