There really is no comparison... I visited a number of other bridal boutiques before visiting Selia Yang, and at every one there was nothing that felt right. Sales clerks were pushy, dresses were "typical" or "expected" and nothing was made for petites. Essentially, I'd have to buy a dress I only kind of liked (for a lot of money), only to have to have it basically redone by a tailor (for more money). The experience with Selia is the complete opposite. She has a strong creative POV and vision, amazing quality, great attention to detail and a beautiful selection (though, she probably will know which one you'll pick from the moment you walk in the door). The personal nature of the whole experience was what put it over the top for me. I absolutely love(d) my dress, and received so many complements!

I had so much fun working with Selia, her gown made my wedding day that much more special. I owe many thanks to her for my happiness on my special day! If you are looking for exquisite elegance, sophistication, quality, and uniqueness then you will find all of this at Selia's. The moment that my mother and I walked into Selia's boutique, we knew we found a special place.

I'm an out of towner that used to live in NY, and knew I wanted to find my wedding dress there. Selia's boutique is like a breath of fresh air to the frenzied big bridal stores, and I got the personalized attention any bride needs when she's on the search for the right dress. Selia was able to do a quick study of my body type and the style dress I wanted, and brought me the most simply elegant but understated gown to try on-- hitting the nail on the head. Needless to say I didn't look at any boutiques after Selia and decided on my dress that day. When I would come to town I'd stop by for fittings, and this las trip to NY I picked the final piece up. I love it, and can't wait to wear it. Selia did a top notch job and I'm extremely grateful!

Selia is exquisite, both as a designer and as a person. I visited her bridal salon with a specific vision for my wedding gown, and though she had never designed a gown exactly like what I was describing, she was open to the adventure. I sincerely enjoyed every minute custom-designing my dress with Selia! HerTribeca studio is a true paradise: serene, spacious and welcoming. Selia's precision and expertise along with her down-to-earth personality is the perfect combination for making any "bride-to-be" feel at ease during this process. I only wish she could attend my wedding to see me walk down the aisle in her stunning creation. If you're looking for an elegant gown and an exceptional experience, then Selia's your lady!

I would highly recommend Selia Yang bridal for a wedding dress. I loved how I looked in my gown and that was due to the beautiful dress I purchased and her superb tailoring and accessorizing.

After visiting several other salons and feeling like nothing I tried on made me feel particularly special or beautiful, I went to Selia Yang (I had often passed by the store on my way to work in the past). The cut and style of the dresses-- simple, elegant, modern and still romantic and sexy-- made me feel like I could be happy in any dress in the store, and the dress I chose really feels like me. Selia really knows her gowns and understands how they fit on the body and how they can be adjusted to make a woman look her best. I have absolute faith in her. She's just the right amount of neurotic for a wedding dress designer! It's been a pleasure working with her and I cannot wait to wear my dress!

Selia is incredible. She has beautiful gowns, impeccable taste and a quick eye. She asks you what you want, then has you try on several gowns, already knowing which ones will suit you best. As your narrow down your choices she is extremely helpful and does not rush you, but again, wants you to keep trying on dresses so that you have a good range. As soon as I put on the gown that I ultimately ended up choosing, she styled it -- knowing exactly what would make it even better in an instant. She selected long white leather gloves (which I'd secretly always wanted to wear but hadn't mentioned), the perfect modern-looking belt to compliment the more vintage look of the lace dress and cool feather hair clips. She even suggested some hairstyles that would work perfectly and has been helping me look for the perfect shoe. I can't say enough how helpful all of her input was. Not only is the dress absolutely perfect, having the fashion expertise of the designer herself style you has been invaluable. I came to Selia because a friend of mine had the same experience. Selia has a talent, vision and warm personality that instill maximum comfort and confidence, in addition to the ease of one-stop shopping. I recommend her very strongly.

I cannot recommend Selia Yang's store enough! I discovered this store when I was shopping with my cousin for her wedding dress a few years ago. Even after moving to Los Angeles, I knew I wanted to come back to New York to get my own wedding dress through her because the dresses are so phenomenally beautiful. My first appointment was nothing short of a dream, the environment in the Franklin street store is extremely peaceful and Selia herself gives you the personal attention and treatment every bride deserves. She listens carefully to what you want and really takes an interest in her customers. When I flew in for a week a few months after purchasing the dress, she made every concession possible to make sure my alterations were done on time and also worked with my very hectic schedule to make sure I was taken care of properly! Go to Selia Yang for the most beautiful dresses you could ever imagine, top-notch customer service and Selia herself, she's a doll and absolutely fabulous to work with!
