Owner is rude, dishonest, and unwilling to acknowledge that her sales associate advised the wrong dress size after taking my measurements. She somehow pinned this mistake on me and claimed that the associate recommended the correct size and I insisted on a smaller size!! Thanks to their shady "contract" rule, I knew that once I signed that contract all responsibility rested on me. However, when I signed that contract, agreeing to the size the associate recommended, I thought I was agreeing to the correct size! What was the point of going in for measurements if I'm being penalized for listening to the associate's recommendation? Hanlin just lost thousands of dollars in future sales (my many friends will certainly not be shopping here) because she was unwilling to lose $300 to correct her associate's misguidance. She refused to order the correct, larger, size unless I first paid for the second dress, which I refused to do. I understand that her contract policy serves to protect her company, but aside from that, her attitude towards her customers is unacceptable. At a minimum she could have apologized that the bride were facing this awful dilemma, instead of being needlessly accusatory. It seems that once they have your credit card they are done helping you! I'm now stuck in a bind with a dress that is too small. Unfortunately for all parties, the bride absolutely regrets choosing this unprofessional company to work with.

My experience at the Wedding Library was wonderful from beginning to end. The entire staff makes you feel welcome from the moment you walk in the door. They are so organized, helpful, and gracious when it comes to assisting you with measurement and order details and truly make you feel as though you are the only client they are focused on. As a fellow Wedding Professional I felt so at ease with the Wedding Library handling all of these details. You just knew from the beginning that all would be perfect throughout the experience. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for beautiful bridesmaid dresses!

For almost 15 years we've served NYC's bridesmaids, brides and couples with bridesmaids dresses (about 4,000 a year); luxurious custom invitations, wedding planning and design services (over 400 to date!). We strive to make every bride, bridesmaid, parent and friend feel special and well taken care of at our salon. Our team takes every appointment seriously and always tries to make every guest feel comfortable and accommodated. We love seeing our bridesmaids return as brides to purchase their dresses and our brides returning with their friends. Most of all, we love receiving the amazing photographs from couples after their weddings. We wish we could be at every one, but seeing our customers in their lovely dresses is almost as good. THANK YOU all for supporting a small business in NYC. We are so proud of our long legacy as "the place to go" for bridesmaids dresses and more in this big city!

I was married in the fall and went to The Wedding Library for all of my needs. I couldn't have enjoyed my day without the day of planning they offer. Victoria in the stationery department was so knowledgable and helped me create the invitations, save the dates and programs exactly as we imagined them. And then we got all 12 of my bridesmaids dresses there. The staff is so welcoming and knowledgable, I'm sending all of my girlfriends there!

I had such a wonderful experience at Claudia Hanlin's Wedding Library. I was married last November and made an appointment to look at bridesmaid dresses. They had a wide variety to choose from and the staff was very helpful! I would definitely recommend them to anyone who is soon to be married!

The Wedding Library has a very large variety of bridesmaids dresses as well as beautiful stationery to choose from. There is something for for each bride to fall in love with. It is such a great company to work for.

Having searched the entire city for bridesmaid dresses my girls would actually wear, I was at my wit's end when my friend recommended me to The Wedding Library. They carry the full range of Amsale and Monique Lhuillier dresses, which are not only gorgeous but also affordable. My consultant steered me in the right direction as there are just so many dresses to choose from. We were able to narrow it down to a few choices and all my bridesmaids get to wear their own style (love!). My consultant made the entire ordering process so smooth and easy for my 10 (yes 10!) bridesmaids. Having been a bridesmaid before, and now a busy bride planning her own wedding, this was such a relief! I would recommend booking your appointment early, since they tend to get fairly busy on the weekend. Thank you so much!

The Wedding Library was extremely pleasant, and very helpful with selecting the prefect dresses for my wedding! The staff was very knowledgable about their products, and very accomedating for my large group! They definately have the best selection of bridesmaid's dresses in NYC. Have not had any issues as some of the other reviews! I had an amazing experience and really appreciated the staff's help and recommendations! A++!

I came here to see the Amsale bridesmaids dresses, but I couldn't believe everything that goes on there. There were a bunch of floors with the cutest stuff - I was in bridal overload. I got a great photographer and cute cards through them too. Great place - check it out ladies!

I went to the Wedding Library this past Saturday and had such a refreshing experience. This was my 4th appointment of the day, I was running about 20 minutes late and luckily they were still able to accommodate me. I found 2 beautiful dresses (loved the group discount, my girls will love me for that), I will be bringing my maid of honor back next week to make the final decision. Also the woman working in stationery was amazing! The shop was so cute, and was full of great wedding stuff. I would recommend The Wedding Library to any bride.
