What a find! Western brides, do not be put off by the name or the Asian-inspired and pageant dresses on display in the window. Grandasia has a great selection of wedding dresses (all sizes and styles) with no pretentious attitude attached. This place is an oasis in the wedding industry.
I first walked into Grandasia without an appointment and the team went out of their way to accommodate me without inconveniencing other brides. When I came back to the store with my mother, the team remembered me and I was greeted by name.
I could add many details, but here are the key points of my experience:
- I had fun. - I was treated with kindness, honesty, and respect. - I tried on several styles of dresses that I was able to choose (I never felt at the whim of the consultant.) - I never felt pressured. - I BOUGHT MY DRESS!
If you've been frustrated by wedding dress shopping like I have been, go to Grandasia now!
Terrific place for gown shopping and alterations!I had the most wonderful experience working with Phi and her team at Grandasia on my wedding gown. From our initial visit when I said yes to the dress all the way through when I dropped it off for preservation after the wedding, I felt very well tended to and valued as a customer. During our first visit, I liked that we weren't rushed, and there were places for everyone to sit. This was not true at all the shops I visited. Gowns were also available in a range of prices, so I was able to select one that fit into my budget. The alteration process was smooth, and my many-layered dress and its bustle came out beautifully. My goal was to have a simple and elegant gown, and I found exactly what I was looking for at Grandasia.
I came in today with my cousin Jaimie Kwiecien. We ended up walking out with the perfect dress for her. All of the associates were welcoming and helpful. We had no experience in wedding dress shopping and they made us feel very comfortable. When we found her dress everyone clapped and the rang a gong for us. So Fun!
Had a very great experience today at Grandasia! I walked in to the appointment not having much expectations, seeing I've already gone to a few bridal shops ... each with something I like (but either too overbudget or too "not for me"); today would just be another one of those days.So, what was so great? Firstly, they opened their shopped early for my appointment, and the service was exceptional! Very knowledgable/friendly staff with a great eye in terms of what I was looking for, what suited my budget and style. Secondly, they were as thrilled about my wedding day as I was ... learning every detail to find the dress that would be perfect for me; and, we did! The whole process was seamless and personal, from walking in the door to finding "the one". We were greeted by the whole staff as well as the owner, which made the day even more special. Would definitely recommend any bride-to-be in the area to stop by and take a look at their wonderful selection!
What an amazing experience at Grandasia! I found my wedding gown and couldn't be more ecstatic! The service here is unbelievable - and I would recommend Grandasia to any bride looking for a wedding gown or any young lady who wants to feel beautiful :) Love!
I absolutely love this place! This was the first and only place I went to try in wedding gowns and ended up choosing the first dress I tried on. The staff was amazing. I felt like royalty. They seem like a very family oriented business. I loved the fact that they catered to my every need without hesitation, complimenting me and congratulating me the entire time. I'm surprised to see some of these not so great reviews because I can not rave about them enough. I wasn't expecting to choose my gown there. I was planning on looking at many different bridal boutiques so I did not bring a down payment with me. They wanted $1000 down payment for the dress and I didn't have it. They were so nice to hold my dress after spending so much time on me and allow me to make the payment almost a week later. 5 stars and I highly recommend Grandasia!!!
I was so pleased with my appointment today. I was very nervous going in because when I made the appointment I was told that Grandasia is no longer doing consultations for bridesmaids. However they said they could take my party if we came in with an idea of exactly what dresses we wanted to try on after looking at their styles online. Since so few stores are open on Sundays and I work on Saturdays I decided to give it a try, and I'm glad I did. The staff at Grandasia was extremely friendly and accommodating. They helped us find a dress that is classy and flattering on all my maids. They sized everyone and generally made us feel very comfortable. It's a casual environment and yes, some of the dresses they carry are very pagaenty and junior prom looking (or made for a flamenco dancer/figure skater), but don't be afraid, they have other more classy conservative options as well. And because we bought 6 dresses we got 10% off. I already got my wedding dress somewhere else but some of the wedding dresses I saw at Grandasia were quite lovely and reasonably priced. I definitely would recommend this place to any bride looking for a store with friendly and helpful staff but not wanting to pay Newbury Street prices.
I got my senior prom dress here at Grandasia in 2006 when they were located in Wollaston. I am here today for bridesmaids dresses at their new location on Hancock Street in the Center and I am blown away by this new shop! The customer service, the unbelievable amount of selections, and they even have bottle servers! Absolutely wonderful! I highly recommend Grandasia to everyone and will be referring friends and family in the future!
Great Place!!! Come here first!!I had great experience here at Grandasia. They helped me a lot from the first visit until my wedding. I would recommend this place to any bride who is looking for a gown!
