Gresham >Dee's Studio
DO NOT BUY FROM HERE. As with a few of the other reviews on here Dee's studio will never get my nor anyone else I knows business in the future. My friend is getting married in 3 weeks and we only just received our bridesmaids dresses. Out of 6 girls only 1 of the dress fits. One of the girls can even put both arms inside her dress. When we were sized for the dresses the consultants told us what size to order and being that they are the "experts" we were confidant they knew what they were doing. Now we are left with dresses that cost $170 a piece and are now looking at between $50-100 more for alterations. One of the girls was even double charged because they insisted she didn't pay yet when in reality she paid ahead of time. I am not the type to complain about service. I myself am in retail and I understand what it is like. I don't want anyone else to experience this kind of headache 3 weeks before their wedding and that is why I'm writing this.
Susie is a Wonder Woman!.
We walked in without an appointment (which is frowned on in the majority of bridal shops in town) and were warmly welcomed and immediately felt at home. We brought my daughter's wedding gown which she'd purchased elsewhere and Susie didn't bat an eye. She put her up on a pedestal and in moments had her outfitted in the perfect veil, headpiece and earrings -- on the first try!
We bought all the maid of honor dresses here, and they came on time, in the right size and Susie made the fitting sessions fun and comfortable for the girls.
I also bought my mother-of-the bride dress from this shop, and it was lovely -- not at all matronly, but not too young, either. Susie again instantly suggested the perfect jewelry to accent the dress.
We also purchased our Save-The-Date cards and invitations in the store -- it's truly "one stop, no hassle bridal shopping."
We never felt pushed to buy, and were encouraged to take our time trying things on and enjoy the experience. There was a small glitch with the Save-The-Date cards arriving a bit later than expected which was due to the printers' error, NOT Susie's fault, but she gave them to us for half price anyway.
I would highly recommend the shop to anyone needing bridal or formal attire. I have another daughter, and the moment she's engaged, we're heading straight to Dee's Studio Ltd.!
Will not buy from again. I ordered a wedding dress nearly 3 months ago for a summer wedding and was told there was easily enough time to get my dress before my big day. Two weeks before my wedding I still did not have my dress and was worried about having enough time to get it altered. I tried not to call too much to ask about the dress, didn't call at all up until about a month before my wedding, the time the dress was supposed to be in, to get an update on how things were going and I was told it would be in soon. My experience seems all to similar to another reviewer on here, half the time I called no one answered the phone only to return my calls sometimes as many as 2 days later, if at all. They do not seem to value their customers in the least, there are many more places around Portland to get a dress. I do not recommend this business at all.
Don't even bother. I went searching for my perfect prom dress and wasted my time. They had no selection, ugly dresses and I didn't feel welcome to be there. There are so many great places don't waste your gas, time or money on Dee's.
Special orders are their specialty!. I had a terrific experience with the wonderful staff at Dee's Studio! After looking for over a month for a "Mother of the Bride" dress, I finally was able to zero in on the perfect choice at Dee's, thanks to their expert staff !They took their time to guide me though a very stressful time and I didn't feel matronly at all,which was my worst fear ! My other worst fear was not having it in time; My dress had to be special ordered, and it came in time for my trip back east where the wedding took place, even though I was so late in ordering! They really took "special care of my special order!" What a pleasure to do business with this lovely boutique in old downtown Gresham.
Bad Wedding Experience. I have used Dee's in the past for my prom dresses and had absolutely no problems. I expected no less when I ordered my bridesmaids' dresses. However, the problems arise when you have to order dresses and they are not in stock. My dresses came in a month later than I was first told and every time I called, someone told me a different story. Each salesperson had a different arrival date for me. The wrong color was originally ordered. I had to be the one to keep tabs on them and persistently call to get any answers. I never felt like my business was appreciated and when I threatened to take my business elsewhere, they gave me false hope to keep my business. Now I am left with very little time to get the dresses altered. Bottom Line: Don't order dresses here unless you want hassle (Brides don't need this extra stress)!
Amazing Service!. A cute shop in old town Gresham. The service is superb! They made me feel like a princess. They have beautiful gowns and encourage you to walk around the store and get a feel for the dress. They aren't too pushy and don't put you in gowns that aren't what you're looking for. I HIGHLY recommend this shop for anyone looking for a great gown buying experience.
