“Honestly could not explain the unrealistic experience I had at Sposa Bella. When they say the dress finds you, it really rang true for me and my dress. It was less then 1 week before my wedding and I had already bought my wedding dress (from another vendor) and I happened to walk into Sposa Bella to find a head piece (which I also ended up wearing on my big day). Lo and behold I lock on eyes on a STUNNING Toni Ward dress. It was the most insane and BEST decision I ever made. We talked with the Nancy and the amazing seamstress Van to see what it even possible to have this dress fitted within a few days? and IT DID. The staff went above and beyond for me for my special day and under really bizarre request! Everything was perfect and I just wish I could wear my dress more because it was perfect!”
“I have had such a wonderful experience with Sposa Bella! I had originally gone to Sposa Bella because they are the only salon in the area to carry Michal Medina gowns. Although I did end up finding my dream Michal Medina wedding dress, the experience I had was just as amazing. Nancy was so very helpful and welcoming from the moment my mom and I met her. She made the experience of finding my dress so much fun and stress-free. Although my wedding was only a little over 6 months away from the time I tried on dresses, Nancy never made me feel pressured to make such a big decision. On top of this, she went above and beyond to research some shoe options that would be comfortable and match my dress, even though it was not required of her. I am very pleased with my experience at Sposa Bella- thank you so very much!”
“As someone who went to multiple bridal shops (in multiple cities), Sposa Bella offers a level of service that is above and beyond your traditional full-service bridal shop.
Nancy is supremely knowledgeable about styles, designers, and seems to be able to read brides quickly to know whether they are limiting themselves to a certain dress type. I was one of those brides who didn’t think I would like a more fitted style gown and I absolutely fell in love with the dress that Nancy picked (and from the sample sale section!). Nancy worked with us within our budget and was with us throughout the entire process.
Any review of Sposa Bella would not be complete without mentioning their preferred seamstress, Vaughn. As an out of state bride, I was worried about my fittings being few and far between (my last one occurred two weeks before the wedding), Vaughn and Nancy worked tirelessly to make my dress perfect. The team here is amazing.”

“This boutique deserves more than 5 stars! I walked in there without an appointment and Nancy greeted my family and I with the most welcoming smile. I knew right away that this place had my gown. I chose a Tony Ward gown and I couldn’t be any happier. Nancy and her coworker became like family they made me feel like a real bride. And, I would definitely send all the future brides I know there cause they deserve to feel special! ”
“Sposa Bella Couture truly surpassed my expectations as a bride. I had my heart set on a dress designed by Anne Barge, and Sposa Bella Couture Bridal Consultant, Nancy, helped to make my fairy tale dress reality. The dress was elegant and timeless, as well as the veil and headpiece. With your exceptional level of professionalism and guidance, I could not have found a more perfect wedding ensemble. Thank you so much for all your assistance and care in making me feel like royalty on my wedding day!”

“I had a truly wonderful experience at Sposa Bella! They have dresses for all brides, varying from traditional to more fashion forward options. Nancy was an absolute pleasure to shop with- she listened to what I wanted and pulled dresses that were in tune with my style. I ended up finding my dress on the first appointment. They are very communicative about the ordering process so you never feel in the dark. If you are shopping in this area, definitely make an appointment here!”
“I had an absolutely wonderful experience at Sposa Bella. They listened to what I wanted, worked within my budget, and from there it only got better. Nancy is so sweet and genuinely cares about every bride. The alterations were stunning and I felt like a million bucks on my wedding day! 5 stars! “
“I had such an incredible experience at Sposa Bella. Silvana was a dream to work with. I found “the” dress but there were a few changes I wanted to make the dress more custom and more flattering for my figure and Silvana not only made that happen but helped me every step of the way keeping in touch with myself and the designer. Thank you for a wonderful experience!”
“I found my dream dress at Sposa Bella Couture. It was actually the first dress I tried on. Silvana in general is a kind hearted individual who really does try her very best to give her brides that “princess fairy tail” feeling. The atmosphere of this bridal store is very energizing. You really can’t go wrong picking this location. I highly recommend it because I had a destination wedding and everything went even better than I had imagined. My advice is going to someone who you trust with your wedding dress because you do live this moment once. You should be able to enjoy the role as a bride and I can assure you that Silvana will go above and beyond. Love you Silvana and thank you for making my dream dress come true. “
“I’m so pleased that I had a wonderful experience at Sposa Bella Birmingham. I think as a bride, finding “the dress” is the most important part of the whole wedding planning experience, and finding a salon that gives you the best experience is just as important. Silvana, was awesome! She provided “real” feedback and not just what I wanted to hear. My dress was gorgeous!! I felt like a real princess!! I also got my bridesmaids dresses here and all the accessories. They were all beautiful and the best quality everyone could be asking for.
So glad I said “yes” to the dress with Silvana and the team at Sposa Bella Birmingham. Highly recommended! “
“Thanks to Sposa Bella I was able to find my dream wedding dress and beautiful veil and accessories to go along with it. The vision I had in my head was brought to life because of them. They are very knowledgeable and made sure everything fit perfectly before I walked out the door. I was looking for something unique and with many details and that is exactly what I found.”
“Thank You so much for all of your help geting my dress ready for our big day! I really appreciate you working with me and understanding my schedule & long drives over from Grand Rapids. In he end, the dress fit perfectly and I felt beautiful! I could not be more pleased with my decision.”
Thank You again for everything!

“My 16 year old daughter needed a debutante dress, Spent many weekends going to various bridal shops with my wife, only to come home frustrated, telling me stories of rude treatment, and tactics I could not believe anyone would subject themselves to. I was utterly dismayed to hear bridal shop protocol, and frankly did not believe it. So I told my wife that I will take my daughter at a time of my choosing and find a dress in one stop. “Impossible!” she said. I was told that I needed an appointment, etc, etc. “Nonsense!” I replied. I ask a friend in the industry where to go. Sposa He says
Today: I take my daughter dress shopping. She is freking out in the car telling me that we MUST have an appointment. We arrive at Sposa. Are promptly greeted, despite there being a large wedding party. Are treated nicely. Staff initially turns to the less expensive dresses. Finds a few ok ones. Then go pick amongst the pricier ones, as they will be going on sale in a week, offering huge discounts. Quickly my daughter find multiple other dresses we like.”
“This was the first dress shop I visited when shopping for my bridal Gown. I instantly found at least 2 that I loved. The girls are amazing and so helpful and knowledgeable. I went back with those two dresses in mind when I went back a few months later, tried on the same dress and then tried on a few others. In those others was the most amazing, unexpected gorgeous dress. After my 10:30 appointment there, I went to two other stores but nothing could even come close to the detail, and fabric quality of what Sposa Bella had. I went back immediately and said yes to the dress. The owner, and the girl that works there brought out champaign and biscotti for us to celebrate. We ended up buying the one on the rack and got 10% off for buying the store sample. The amazing thing is that these designers aren’t allowed to sell to anyone else in Michigan, and once they sell a dress to you they will not reorder that dress so that you are the only one in Michigan with that dress. Awesome experience and lovely, lovely people working there. Found my dream dress!”
