I had the great pleasure of having Mariel as my stylist and she was an absolute dream to work with!! <3 after a quick phone consultation and a browse of my Pinterest board, Mariel, like the wizard she is, knew the exact dresses to pull and ultimately helped me find my dream dress. She was so so fun, and chill (never pushy), and truly made my dress shopping experience so special and stress free. Couldn't recommend a better stylist or bridal shop overall! Thank you so so much (:
Ania Bridal was the third place I visited, and I can truly say I saved the best for last! Right upon meeting my stylist, Mariel, I felt truly heard and valued. Mariel was so kind and genuine, and I can't say enough good things about her!! She called me about a week before my appointment to discuss my desires, budget and any special needs. When I arrived at my appointment, Marie! had pulled many of the dresses I wanted to try plus a few of her own choice. She was very intuitive and professional, but very personable at the same time. Never once did I feel pressured. I found my dress with her and it was an amazing moment! I will recommend Ania Bridal and Mariel to any brides-to-be!
Izzy was an absolute dream to work with. I am a plus sized bride and not once did she make me feel limited or uncomfortable. She had such a good feel for what looked good on me and what silhouettes worked and ended up picking a dress I never thought I would want, but absolutely needed. All this, while putting zero pressure on me and being excited with me. If I were to do it all
I had such a wonderful experience at Ania! I worked with Izzy, and this was the first stop on a whirlwind dress shopping day with my out of town mom and MIL. Scheduling was smooth, communication by text was super convenient, and the first 2 dresses Izzy pulled were so insanely perfect I could hardly believe it! This was definitely the best experience I had at any of the shops we visited, and the entire staff was so kind and complimentary while we were there. Izzy made me feel super comfortable, was respectful of my budget, and made me really feel like a bride for the first time. The dresses here were so gorgeous, and I know I only got to see a tiny fraction of what they have. An absolute must-visit bridal shop for any future Portland brides!
DARIAN is the best! I had a wonderful experience at Ania's. He was fun and seemed to know exactly what to pull for me.
Darian was so professional and fun to work with. He found me my dress and made it an all around amazing experience. He's great at reading the room and keeping things light with some good jokes. He helped me visualize the big day to make sure it was my dress and listened to all of my feedback. Darian I cannot thank you enough!!! I will be recommending you to any of my friends wedding dress shopping in the future!
Audrey is the best! Ania was the last dress stop for me, and by that time I was pretty worn out. However, Audrey was so genuine, easy going and spot on that it didn't fake or performative like dress shopping can at times! I think she understood my vision pretty well and actually remembered pieces from my inspiration board, so I was finally able to find my dress! Also, they do alterations in-house, so that is a big plus. Would definitely recommend!
Audrey guided me through my first ever search for my wedding dress, and I can not imagine having a better experience!! This ray of sunshine made me feel so comfortable and included my family, while remaining my strongest advocate. A hard balance, but she makes it look easy. Her knowledge and keen listening skills were displayed in the selection she brought to me which consistently hit the mark. Thank you for such an amazing experience, Audrey!
I cannot properly articulate how great of an experience I had finding my wedding dress at Ania bridal. What was intended as an initial browse, turned into such a comfortable and seamless experience where I found my dream dress. Carmen, my stylist, was so attentive, professional, and respectful of my timeline and budget. Prior to my appointment we had a phone consultation where Carmen immediately put my mind at ease. Upon arrival we were greeted by friendly staff and given complimentary champagne. Carmen had notes from our phone conversation and had listened to exactly what I was looking for as well as my insecurities, and provided me with the perfect dresses to try on. They matched my aesthetic and vision so perfectly so that the 3rd dress I tried on was my dream dress! Thank you for such an amazing experience and I cannot wait to go back for my fitting!
Worked with Carmen at Ania to find my absolute dream wedding dress after leaving a previous bridal salon experience feeling stressed out and anxious. I feel like Carmen really listened to me and what I was looking for and was in tune with how I was feeling throughout the whole appointment. And besides that, when I found my dress Carmen and the rest of the team at Ania were so over-the-moon excited for me it felt like I was celebrating the experience with people I had known for years. Couldn't recommend this shop more for THE bridal experience everyone hopes to have looking for their dress.
