"I was incredibly lucky to have Kristin as my stylist, I liked her right away. I’m pretty sure I gave her like only a few sentences about the wedding and what I was looking for in a dress and she brought me three perfect options. The first one I tried, we thought this is it! Tried the next, just kidding, this is it! The third one turned out to be actually IT. Kristin knew exactly what I wanted and was supportive, funny and super easy-going through the entire appointment. Good vibes would be an understatement. Thank you for a fabulous experience!"

"My prior wedding dress shopping experiences were short of tragic. I had been told over and over, store to store that what I was looking for didn't exist. When I walked into Madeleine's Daughter I was greeting with open arms and encouragement. I was told that my Pinterest board had been looked through and dresses that I was looking at had already been pulled along with ones similar to the style I was pinning. The first dress I tried on was the one I bought. It was exactly what I was looking for and how I imagined looking as a bride. Thank you Madeleine's Daughter for making my bridal look complete!"


"I had a wonderful experience with Madeleine's Daughter. I went with my mom and thought I wanted long-sleeve, form fitting. After trying on several with the wonderful woman who helped me, I realized that this may not have been the look I wanted. She was not pushy or salesy at all, which I very much appreciated. Instead, she brought in about five at a time so I could try on and then say what I liked/didn't like. She listened so intently and asked if she could bring in a few that she thought I may like. When she brought in the next round of dresses, I knew she had found "the one" ! I immediately asked to try on "the dress with the pockets." As soon as I looked in the mirror, I knew it was meant for me. It was very unlike the dress I thought I would be leaving with, but it was more beautiful than I ever could have imagined. I have recommended Madeleine's Daughter to all of my friends and am forever grateful for a memorable experience in helping me find the dress of my dreams."

"I daringly decided to book three different bridal appointments in the same day hoping to find my dress with Madeleine's Daughter being my last stop. After two other appointments elsewhere, trying on close to 45 dresses before my appointment with MD, I was exhausted and feeling a bit discouraged. However, as soon as I walked through those doors the team and stylists were so nice and excited to find me the perfect dress that it completely turned my entire day around! Melissa helped me with my dress and she was AMAZING - her personality is friendly and bubbly and she is excellent at her job. All the wonderful women who work at Madeleine's Daughter become invested in your wedding and understand how personal and big these decisions are for all brides. It was so great to be able to see them as friends and not just consultants. You can tell immediately that they are super passionate about their clients and make it a priority to find all brides the dress of their dreams.  I got my wedding dress, Bridesmaids dresses, and the Mothers Dresses at Madeleine's and I could not have been more pleased, everything was absolutely flawless."


"I had been to countless bridal shops and had tried on so many dresses. Nothing I found felt like “me”. The moment I walked into Madeleine's Daughter I just knew I was going to find the perfect dress. The elegance of the shop and the exceptional service from my stylist, McKenzie, instantly put me at ease. She made it so easy and actually got to know me and the look I was going for. McKenzie brought out my dress and as soon as I saw my reflection there were tears!! I knew it was the one. I have never felt as beautiful as I have than the day I married the love of my life in my stunning dress. Thank you so much McKenzie and Madeleine's Daughter, I will never forget the first time I tried her on!"

"Although I wasn't looking for one particular dress or style, I knew I wanted something simple and classic for our Vermont wedding.  My only 'rule' was that I didn't want something strapless, which can be hard to find!  Before Madeline's Daughter, I visited several stores and described my taste and vision, yet kept being put in dresses that didn't fit with either.  A bit discouraged, I finally drove up to Portsmouth on a friend's recommendation, and I'm so glad I did.  My stylist Brandie seemed to understand my style instantly, and I loved every dress she pulled.  She was also insistent on only bringing me things within my budget, which I am so grateful for.  I couldn't be happier with the 'winner' -- it may not be everyone's perfect dress, but it was absolutely perfect for me.  Thank you!!"

"To say I love Madeleine's Daughter Bridal is an absolute understatement. From the second I made the appointment to the second I walked out with my dress in my hand, I was impressed. Mckenzie was professional, calm, organized, extremely knowledgeable, and made me realize that if there was any doubt in my mind about a dress, then she was not giving up on helping me hunt for "the one." I came into my appointment having pinned so many different styles of gowns on my Pinterest board (which was so impressive she looked at that ahead of time), having no idea what style I wanted, and Mckenzie helped me narrow down what style I wanted and was patient and happy during the whole process. I have a very indecisive personality and Mckenzie was so helpful in making me realize what I truly wanted and felt good in. I not only found my dress that day, but I found my veil, jewelry, and sash, and walked out the door that day feeling like a bride. I also ordered my bridesmaids dresses there and couldn't have been happier with how they looked. Although I do not want to go through planning a whole wedding again, I wish I could go into Madeleine's Daughter over and over again and pick out my wedding dress because it was such an unbelievable experience.I love the staff, the atmosphere, the feel I get when I walk in the door, and most of all, I love my wedding dress!"

"My experience with Madeleine’s Daughter couldn’t have been more perfect. My first visit to MD was a really important first step in my dress search, because I had no idea where to even begin. The staff at MD was so knowledgeable of designers, and gave recommendations about styles/fit options that would be best suited for my body type. My stylist chose so many dresses that I loved. I ended up coming across a dress made by Watters; MD was able to order the dress to their store for me to try on at my next visit. And when I went for my second visit, I totally fell in love.  My stylist also gave recommendations on tailoring and accessories. I was so thrilled with my experience finding my dress, that I brought my bridesmaids there to find their dresses as well. I would recommend MD to any and all brides searching for their perfect dress. Thank you Madeleine’s Daughter!

"My experience at MD was fabulous! The energy in the salon was pure excitement as Moms, sisters, friends and brides-to-be shopped for the most important dress of their lives! My consultant was lovely and understood exactly what I was looking for. She was experienced and professional. It's a major decision to decide on a dress and was just beginning my search when I visited MD, but my consultant guided us through the decision process with her knowledge of the industry and inventory to where we felt positive we'd found the one!"

"I had an amazing experience there working with Casi. She was patient, helpful, and worked really hard to make sure I found the perfect dress for my big day. I had to try on a lot of dresses to find the right one, and I never felt rushed, Casi really wanted to make sure when I decided on a dress it was the right one. Both my Mom and I got our wedding dresses there about 40 years apart so it is a really special place for us!"

"I would consider myself a very indecisive person and because of this I was nervous to go dress shopping. Ashley was the most amazing stylist and helped me narrow down the style and fabric I liked. The incredible part was she helped me figure it out less than 9 dresses! Ashley got creative and brought in some plain dresses with lace boleros! I put on the Dakota dress by Nicole Miller and instantly felt like a supermodel. I then slipped on the lace bolero top and I fell in love! We all knew that this was THE DRESS! Ashley then helped me come up with ideas for my bridesmaids dresses, finding swatches of colors. Ashley was so supportive, helpful and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend Madeleine's Daughter to anyone looking for a dress!"

 "From minute one, I knew we were in the right place. Brandie truly was my wedding fairy godmother! Madeleine's Daughter, and Brandie, made my wedding absolutely perfect. I have recommended it to so many of my friend's who are looking for their dream dress, not only because of the selection, but also because of the people. Weddings can be stressful, and Madeleine's Daughter made finding the dress truly enjoyable." 

"I had the greatest experience dress shopping at MD. From the moment I arrived and met with my personal stylist Casi, I felt at ease. She went above and beyond to find a dress that suited my style and vision, even previewing my Pinterest page before I arrived to get a feel for what I was looking for. She wasn't pushy or overbearing, instead she was incredibly helpful and uplifting. She offered many different samples and worked tirelessly to find me the perfect dress. And indeed it was. I would wear that dress every day of my life if that was appropriate! I have never felt more beautiful. As crazy as wedding planning can be, shopping for the dress at MD was one of the easiest decisions I got to make. I cannot recommend MD enough."

"I had a wonderful experience working with Melissa. She is a kind person with a great sense of humor and she made me, my mom and sister feel comfortable from the start. Once she got a sense of my style and what I was envisioning for my wedding day, I started trying on dresses and with each new dress she asked me what I liked and what I didn't like about it. Based on my answers she was able to narrow down on my specific style and it didn't take long until we found my dress! I want to thank Melissa and everyone at Madeleine's Daughter. We were so happy with my experience that we just visited again last week so my sister could shop for her wedding dress. We can't wait for it to come in!"

"I am so thrilled I shopped at Madeleine’s Daughter for my wedding gown. The MD team truly creates a special experience for brides by offering generous one on one time with very experienced and knowledgeable consultants. I have worked with several of the consultants and each was able to see my vision and pick the dresses and accessories to make the vision a reality. Thank you to the whole MD team for helping me find my dream dress!"

"I had been to one other store prior to MD and didn't have much luck. MD was SO welcoming from the initial phone call when I made the appointment, the cheerful staff when we entered the shop, and when I was introduced to Casi I felt incredibly comfortable.  She made sure to stay within my budget, but didn't let that restrict us finding the perfect dress. I still think about my wedding dress and hope I can find a silly excuse to wear it again because I absolutely loved it. I felt regal and elegant on my wedding day, and I'll never forget that feeling thanks to MD!"

"Madeleine's Daughter gave me such a fun, relaxing, and individual experience! At other places I felt rushed and unheard. I was not the bride who looked forward to dress shopping, rather I was apprehensive and nervous about it. But from the minute I stepped into Madeleine's Daughter I felt excited and comfortable!

My consultant, Erika, listened to what I had to say and made me feel important throughout the whole process! She offered suggestions that were extremely helpful, and was never pushy. These suggestions paid off immensly as she helped to find the best dress for me! The salon and the kind and knowledgeable staff made my experience fun and stress free! Thank you Erika and Madeleine's Daughter!"

"Madeleine’s Daughter is where my dress journey began, and where it ended.  On my very first trip to Madeleine’s I had ZERO idea what type of dress I was looking for, despite having been engaged for over a year. I was paired with Kristin, who was the most amazing consultant I could’ve dreamed of.  After pulling many styles and shapes, we narrowed it down to fit and flares, but sadly I walked out that day empty handed.  Through the course of the next eight weeks, I shopped around, but knew no matter what, I would work with Kristin to order my dress.  When I found the dress online, Kristin talked me through ordering through Madeleine’s and gave me comfort even though I wouldn’t get to try it on beforehand.  In the end, the dress was beyond my wildest dreams. Now off to celebrate my Maid of Honor’s wedding, another Madeleine’s bride!"

"My appointment at Madeleine's was my first time trying on wedding dresses and they really exceeded my expectations! I brought my sisters, mom and mother-in-law and they were all able to join me in my own personal room while I tried on dresses. I didn't have any idea what type of style I wanted so my stylist gave me one of every type of material, cut, color, etc to try on so I could easily narrow down what I liked. I remember it coming down to two dresses, my stylist told me to try them both on one more time, and assured me that I'd know right away which was the right choice. She was right!"

"I definitely started the day off right at Madeleine's Daughter. I was a little overwhelmed with the dress search, I hadn't put much thought into anything wedding prior to being engaged, and definitely didn't have a vision for my dress. Ashley really seemed to care about my search for the perfect dress and I truly believe she enjoys helping each bride reach that moment, she paid close attention to how I felt in each dress and made me feel very comfortable throughout the entire process. I have to say I was very disappointed as I did not receive the same kind of service at the other two bridal salons I visited. I am so glad I chose Madeleine's Daughter for my dress, Ashley and the rest of the team were extremely helpful and professional throughout the entire process, from accessory fittings, to recommended seamstresses, all the way to dropping my dress off to be cleaned and preserved after my wedding!" 

"Shopping at Madeleine’s Daughter Bridal Salon for my wedding gown was a wonderful experience! The salon was beautiful and perfectly tailored to meet the needs of any bride-to-be. The dressing rooms were private, comfortable, and roomy, offering ample space for guests. The staff was extremely knowledgeable, energetic, and very determined to help find me the perfect dress. My stylist listened to my ideas and desires in order to help my find a dress I not only loved, but one that also complemented my wedding theme, bridal party attire, personality, and body type. I can not thank Madeleine’s Daughter enough for finding me the perfect gown that made my wedding complete!"

"I remember my experience at Madeleine’s Daughter because it was such a great one. McKenzie was my bridal consultant and she greeted me and immediately made me feel comfortable. She explained how MD does bridal gown shopping differently, which I was a little concerned about. I wondered how someone I had met five minutes ago could find me the dress of my dreams. After telling her about my fiancé, our plans for a destination wedding, and my thoughts on a dream dress she left the room after saying “I have the perfect dress.” I put on the dress and I didn’t want to take it off... McKenzie’s expertise put me at ease and helped me to find the dress of my dreams. I wish I had gone to Madeleine’s Daughter at the start of my bridal gown shopping and I now recommend everyone to go there."

"My first experience at Madeleine's Daughter was actually as a bridesmaid supporting another bride, so when I got engaged I immediately knew where to dress shop.  My stylist, Emily, quickly picked up on my interests and budget and made the whole experience stress free and full of smiles. The process was efficient without feeling rushed, which I really appreciated.  I was able to say yes to the dress in one wonderful visit, thanks to a combination of Emily’s warmth and helpfulness and the store’s huge selection of dresses.  I couldn’t have asked for a better dress buying experience!"

"Purchasing my bridal gown at Madeleine's Daughter was one of the easiest decisions to make in the whole wedding planning process. My consultant listened to my dress vision, then brought me gowns that she felt matched what I was looking for. Every dress that she pulled for me was exactly what I was envisioning! I couldn't make a wrong choice. My consultant treated me with respect, listened to all my wants/needs while keeping within my budget, and made me feel pampered throughout the whole process. I felt like a Bride at Madeleine's Daughter. I would recommend this store to everyone. Thank you again for such a wonderful bridal experience!"

"From the moment I stepped into Madeleine's Daughter for my first ever wedding dress shopping appointment, all preconceived notions of anxiety and stress washed away, yes I felt excited, but also at ease; I knew I was in great hands! Brandie considered my body type and budget in helping me find the perfect dress, but more importantly, she listened carefully to me, really understood the type of person I am, what type of wedding I envisioned, and brought out some stunning dresses!  Ultimately, I chose an elegant, strapless, lace dress.  It is so incredibly soft and comfortable that I didn't want to take it off!!"

"I would like to thank your wonderful and professional staff for helping me make my wedding day beautiful. A wedding dress is one of the most important parts of the celebration because all eyes are on the bride, and I can say, with great confidence, that I truly felt like a princess in my gorgeous Eve of Milady gown. I received many compliments during and after my wedding on how beautiful I looked. 

I was truly impressed with my experience at Madeleine’s Daughter. It was such an easy, wonderful experience for my family and I. I have recommended Madeleine’s Daughter many times and will continue to do so in the future."

"I loved my experience at Madeleine's Daughter. They exceeded my expectations! My family and friends all felt very welcome and comfortable. The entire staff was very kind and helpful with ideas without applying any pressure.They genuinely want to help you find "the one" and succeed in doing so. Couldn't have imagined my big day in any other dress - thank you Madeline's Daughter!"

My experience at Madeleine’s Daughter was unlike those at any of the other salons I had visited. My group was ushered into a private, comfortable room, and having ample space and privacy allowed me to have a tranquil, enjoyable experience trying on gowns.Kristin, my stylist, was warm and inventive. I never felt pressured to make a decision and I felt reassured that she had my best interests in mind. After trying on a few dresses, I put on a dress that Kristin picked out that I would not have picked out for myself. However, I was instantly drawn to it. I had been looking at mermaid dresses with heavy beading but she brought in a light, Chantilly lace Lazaro dress with a subtle sparkle. It was absolutely perfect. As with many brides, as much as I loved the dress, I started to feel self-conscious about how I looked in the dress. Kristin assured me that I looked beautiful and she shared some great advice that helped me gain the confidence to choose the dress.  Without Kristin's creativity, ability to understand a bride’s needs, and her kind demeanor, I never would have found “the dress!” 

"From first contact making the appointment to my last visit to pick up the dress everything was perfect. The amazing staff at your store made me feel more comfortable and more excited for my wedding than I had been. I worked with McKenzie. She understood my vision and helped achieve it. She was never pushy or impatient with me. She offered suggestions based on my style. She was FUN. She helped me finally envision my day. I am so thankful for this experience. I've sent several of my friends up to your store and honestly cannot say enough good things about it!"

"I am so happy I went to Madeleine's because I found the experience and the perfect dress I was looking for. Melissa was the girl that helped me and she was so absolutely amazing. For one, she gave the day the attention and enthusiasm it deserved. I was there looking for my wedding dress! She actually cared to learn about me, my life with my future hubby, and what my picture for the big day was about. She brought out some dresses that I went in knowing I wanted to try on and then a bunch of others that she thought I would like. She helped me narrow down the selection because there were a few that I liked. I ended up picking one of the dresses she brought out for me.  It was everything I was looking for. The shop was so amazing we got our bridesmaid dresses there too. When I say I found the perfect dress I truly mean that. I wouldn't have found it without Melissa and Madeleine's Daughter!"
