My family and I entered the shop late last night as they were closing. We were greeted with all smiles and cooperation. My husband and I were married in November. I'm in the Navy and we are not from the area. So we scheduled our reception 18FEB12. I ordered a dress online for my reception a month ago and it has yet to arrive. No one has answered my emails or calls. So here I am 5 days from my reception and without a dress and anxiety has set in.
After an hour and a half we found a dress. After I burst in tears and the staff was so pleasant and helpful.
I found a dress that I was happy with and a reasonable price. I just want to thank them for their exceptional customer service and sincerity. My experience was definitely uplifting.
After looking endlessly in stores and online made an appointment to check out mother of the bride dresses. I had found many dresses at Grandasia that impressed me, called them for pricing and went in to look. I was so impressed with the quality of the dresses and the staff was very knowledgeable and helpful. I'm a woman in my early 50's and wanted a dress that was age appropriate. Too old for a bridesmaid dress, but too young for a rhinestone jacket. This store more than met my expectations and I purchased a dress that I am proud to wear which will not only look beautiful but is made of quality material. My daughter ended up getting her bridesmaid dresses here along with her shoes and jewelry. My best friend's daughter is getting married this year and after purchasing many different dresses from online and in stores returned all them and purchased her dress here as well. I recommend Grandasia highly and if you want to purchase quality dresses in a non-pushy environment I suggest you start here first.
Having no luck finding bridesmaid dresses I liked for my girls at the big wedding stores, I was referred to Grandasia by a fellow bride. I went there with an open mind and found myself pleasantly surprised. Grandasia has beautiful gowns that are high quality. A bonus is the staff is very personable there and willing to help. I decided to get my bridesmaids dresses from there, and they are gorgeous and well made. My mother got a beautiful mother of the bride gown there, and I ended up getting my wedding shoes, and wedding jewelry from there as well. I would highly recommend this store to anyone.
I live down the street from Grandasia and I used to make fun of the dresses on their window display. But something made me go on their website one night and I ended up seeing a ton of Justin Alexander wedding dresses that I liked so I decided to stop in. To my surprise, they actually have some cute stuff. I got there a half hour before they closed on a Friday night and tried on maybe 6 dresses. The staff was very helpful and friendly, not pushy. I was very comfortable the whole time even though I was there so close to their closing time. There is a decent selection of dresses stocked but not too overwhelming. The selection for order is way larger in case you don't see something that you like in the store. I had just gone to David's Bridal a week or so before for bridesmaids dresses and had a not so pleasant experience.....long wait, rude staff, etc. Consider checking this place out if you are nearby. Shopping for your wedding dress should be a good and happy experience. You will have a good experience here at Grandasia. I ended up buying my wedding dress here and it was at a decent price. I got a Signature Collection by Justin Alexander. Needless to say, I won't be making fun of the dresses on display when I drive by anymore. Overall - good selection for all taste, decent price, good staff, good location.
I am a Caucasian female who fell in love and married a gorgeous handsome Chinese businessman. To show respect to my in-law’s cultural tradition, I persisted in wearing a Chinese cheongsam (Qipao) with long sleeves for my wedding banquet in Chinatown. After having absolutely no luck finding one in Boston Chinatown I came to Grandasia based on Yelp reviews. Thank God I did! Not only did they save me a few trips to NYC's Chinatown, they customized an existing dress to my specific (difficult) needs (I wanted to have lacy form-fitted long sleeves!) They also did a beautiful job tailoring a cheongsam that I brought into them. The women in the shop are amazing, so helpful and precise. I would recommend them to anyone who thinks you have to go all the way to NYC to get a beautiful cheongsam for a special occasion!
I found myself in Grandasia as they were one of very few locations that carried a hard to find last season bridesmaid dress that I need quickly. I walked in explained my challenge. Not only were they able to satisfy my order, they did it for $50 less than any other location I had called- AND the rush charge was totally reasonable. It was raining outside so I decided to try on some wedding dresses as I was recently engaged and though what the hell. 45 minutes later I was making a deal on a beautiful dress that I knew was the one. Just like that I got a great deal on my wedding dress. Picked my bridesmaid dress 3 weeks later, did some quick alterations and it was ready the following week and fit perfectly. Fast forward to several months later it was time for a fitting and alterations of my wedding dress, again outstanding service, reasonable pricing. I ended up buying a veil as well, and left one happy bride. I cannot recommend the women that run and work this shop more, they are very knowledgeable, not pushy, super friendly and know how to hook up a dress. These women are not new to the dress game and it shows. I highly recommend the shop for quality products and exceptional service, I will return for all fancy dress needs. ALSO they are the best price around for wedding dress cleaning and preservation!!!
I stopped in here this past fall because I needed shoes dyed to match a dress for a wedding that was coming up in about two weeks (yeah, I procrastinated a bit about getting this done.)
I chose this place because it's not far from my apartment. It's literally a block up from the Wollaston T, on the corner of Hancock and Beale street. There's plenty of street parking, but no lot.
The inside is clean and cheery- dresses of all cuts and colors fill the place. Prices on the dresse (a girl can look, right?) seemed very reasonable.
The staff behind the counter were super helpful and accommodating. They helped me find the right shoes and even found the exact dye match. They called me a few days later when the shoes came back in, and everything was perfect.
I will defintiely come back here if I ever need shoes dyed, or, god forbid, I ever have to look for a wedding dress.
My mom and I went here today to look for a cheongsam for my wedding. They had a wide enough selection and the staff were all very friendly. I never felt that we were being rushed or hassled. They helped us when needed and stayed out of our way when we were browsing. They were able to answer our questions too.
Prices were fair as well although my mom swears that comparable merchandise would be less expensive in Flushing, Queens. (My mom says that about everything in Boston from produce to restaurant meals.)
I would recommend going here for a prom dress, wedding gown, bridesmaid gown, evening gown, or to rent/buy a cheongsam, qi pao, or ao dai. They have a great selection and also accessories, such as shoes and hair barrettes to accompany your outfit!
I went to Grandasia looking for a photographer/videographer. We booked the video and they guys were excellent! We are having the video re-edited at the moment.
My rave about Grandasia bridal comes in with their alterations. Six weeks before my wedding in the middle of Prom season Phi and Fiona took care of me. I didn't buy my dress their either. The dress was let out, taken in, and re bustled a million times until it was exactly what I wanted. I never had to make an appointment. I got the attention I needed while they ran around taking care of all the anxious teenager girls looking for just the right dress.
I would highly recommend them for any wedding service. They are committed to excellent service. They have reasonable priced accessories too. Ooh and my sister who is a size 3 had a size 12 dress altered and a stained removed. The dress looked like it was made for her. You would never know. The price of alterations were far less than other shops in the area. $50 less in my sisters case.
Went to Grandasia looking for a Mother of the Bride dress. The owner, Phi Du was very helpful and attentive. She had me try on a dress that I never though would look good on me, but.....It was wonderful. Alterations on the dress were perfect! Great place to shop! I'll definately be back to shop for my next formal occasion.
