Wichita >Reni's Bridal Boutique
Before going to Reni's I had visited at least 8 other dress shops in town and was beginning to feel very discouraged about finding THE dress. I thought I was going to have to settle for a dress that was just "ok". However, my experience at Reni's was like none other! She never once showed me a dress over my budget (which is very rare for dress shops), and I loved that! Furthermore, once she got a feel for the look I desired, she brought out some gowns that were perfect and one-of-a kind!
Reni and her assistant gave me their full attention and made the experience so much fun. Reni has quite the eye for what looks good on specific body types; she definitely won't tell you that every single dress looks great just so you'll buy it, like some of the other shops do. Needless to say I did find THE dress and I had SO many compliments on it at the wedding! Plus, she helped my mother find a stunning dress to wear as well.
Thank you Reni for the amazing experience! I only wish I had come to your shop first before the other 8, it would have saved me a lot of time and headaches!
I tried this salon because about 3 of my friends have purchase their dresses there, and so very glad I did.
Reni's is a smaller shop with a ton of dresses. Reni and her assistant were so fun! Everyone in my party had the best time! I had the whole salon to myself (and the few I brought with me), which created a very intimate appointment. I loved that I could focus on the dress I was trying, and not be distracted by others trying on dresses around me.
I brought 3 pictures with me, and that was all she needed. She totally understood my style and had a great eye for dresses that would look good on my body type, while being respectful of my budget. I tried on dresses that had so much detail, were so beautiful and different from other dresses that I had seen. (Because of the detail, I was expecting them to be WAY expensive, but they weren't.) I found so many that were really good, but Reni didn't settle until we found the perfect one.
Unlike with larger bridal stores, I didn't feel like I was picking a dress that a bunch of other girls would have. I even picked a dress that zipped up, and they allowed me to change it to a corset style, no big deal.
Overall an amazing experience. I have already suggested this salon to my friends getting married.
Reni's the only place to get your dress!. My daughter was married in April, and Reni & her staff made everything so easy & wonderful. The search for the dress...others were like vultures, but at Reni's, they really wanted us happy, my daughter to find her "perfect" dress. After determining the style that my daughter preferred, they brought in several in addition to what my daughter had pointed out...it was Reni, herself, whom found that dress my daughter deemed as perfect. The next task, the veil...also had to be perfection...Reni's made it happen. It is true that Reni isn't happy if the bride isn't...she even made the bride's mother extremely happy! They embraced the party we brought with us to view this perfect ensemble, 9 of us...they took it in stride. With their investment of time, the enthusiam, & eye for detail, it was like we were working with family; they too, only want the best! Reni's has it all, the dress, veil, garter, and more. If you want the best experience and attire...Reni's is the place to go!
Best experience ever!. Reni is absolutely amazing! I was referred to her boutique by my cousin's wife. I had a terrible experience at David's Bridal and when I got to Reni's I was welcomed with warm arms and loving, happy faces. I had picked out a certain few dresses to try, although Reni had my dressing room full of dresses that she thought I would love. She saved one for me to try on last (that was not on my list) and had told my mother that, that would be the dress I loved. It was the dress we bought. She knows exactly what fits your body type and what style looks best on you. She is very honest and very open. That is what I love. At David's all I heard was that everything looked perfect and beautiful, even when it was horrid. Reni will not let you leave her store with a dress that does not make you look absolutely amazing. Do not pass up your chance to find your perfect dress at Reni's!
I had a great experience at Reni’s. The woman who helped me gave me great suggestions on different styles to try that would work well with my body type. I ended up finding a dress that looked great, and makes me feel amazing. Reni is not the type of person to tell you that you look beautiful in a dress when you really don’t, which was something I personally appreciated. Everyone was very patient with me and was more than willing to spend the three hours it took to help me find my dress.
I found the store to be a quirky little place that could use some updating, but was clean and most importantly, full of beautiful dresses to choose from. If you are looking for an experience like you would have at Kleinfeld’s in New York, then Reni’s probably isn’t the place for you. If you are looking simply to find a dress and get an honest opinion, then I think you might want to give Reni’s a try.
Very Rude!. My future daughter-in-law and I drove 210 miles to shop for an item for her wedding. I read the reviews & thought with a five star rating from some of the customers, this must be the place. Golly gee wiz, was I wrong! The 5 star rating states "RUN, DON'T WALK!" should be the excerpt for a 1 star rating, or better yet, a ZERO rating! I have NEVER been treated so poorly in my 50+ years. I'm not certain who "buzzed" us in the door, whether she was the owner or an employee who had to work on a Saturday, but we quickly were treated so rudely, we left; thus, this review is written. This woman made it perfectly clear she didn't want or need our business. She needs an attitude adjustment & lessons in customer service! We chose "Dress Gallery" on west Douglas St. We spent 2 1/2 hrs in this boutique & received the best service ever!
Loved my experience!. I read the reviews and decided that Reni's was the first place I was going to go. It is a small shop but is very personal and they make it all about you. There is a large amount of dresses that makes it almost hard to decide. I went to David's Bridal the day after and was super happy to have been to Reni's first. They weren't as personal and way to busy. The gowns at Reni's aren't over $2,000 which was a relief because I didn't want to fall in love with something that would be out of my budget. Even though it is a small shop it has a lot to offer and I would recommend this store to anyone. They will be very pleased with the service provided. Thank you Reni's for all that you did for me. Made the experience worth while!
I loved my experience! Reni is genuinely amazing!. Reni was recommended to me by my future sister-in-law and mother-in-law. My future sister-in-law bought her dress at Reni's and had a very positive experience. I went to a few other bridal boutiques before going to Reni's. I went to another bridal store in Wichita on the West side and thought I had found my dress. Being a size 12-14, I was very self-conscious of my figure and thought that because a v-neck gown fit me (which is sometimes commonplace for women with curves), It must and had to be MY dress. But when I went to Reni's, My eyes were opened to a whole new beauty in wedding gowns. I showed Reni the picture of the dress from the other store and her response was candid and truthful, the dress did not fit my bodytype. It did not have a modest neckline and did not flatter me. I trusted her expertise and the opinion of people close to me who I trusted. Reni picked out a beautiful gown that fit my body so well! Tears came and I knew that I had found my dress! The beading was beautiful. I realized that I had truely underestimated how beautiful I could really look on my wedding day. Reni will offer you a genuine opinion. It is just an opinion and it is ultimately the bride's choice. Reni is a well grounded business owner and she is confident. I respect her business philosophy. She has 30 years experience, which I thought was a plus. She is honest about needing an appointment on Saturdays; They are very busy and it is in your best interest. There should be more people like her in the business realm. I would especially recommend any woman who has curves to try Reni's out! You will not regret it! Keep an open mind and be prepared to be more beautiful than you thought you could ever be on your wedding day! Thanks for reading my review.
Love Reni and her Store!.
I looked at most bridal stores in KC, OKC, and Wichita. Reni's had my dress. She listened to what I wanted; she did not try to fit my personality into whatever dresses she bought at market.
She stood out from the crowd because she is blunt. She tells you the truth - like if a dress isn't good for your body. If she says it, you can bet your guests are thinking it, and do you want them criticizing you on your wedding day? Go to Reni, she won't BS you.
I came back into that store once, sometimes twice a month for four months, with different friends, my mother, and by myself. Her sales people are so kind and wonderful - they want to make you beautiful. They don't make a commission.
Reni never pushed me to buy the dress that day, and she never rushed me out of the store. She talked about alterations, varying colors of white, even dying the veil with tea to match the dress (it works!). Will you get this from a David's Bridal?
Moreso, she can read personalities, body types, and skin types and colors. Trust me, you will not regret going to Reni's. You'll regret not going.
Absolutely the very best bridal shop in Wichita!!!!!!!!! Great dresses, excellent service!. This is the best bridal shop in Wichita! If you don't go to Reni's you really are missing out.!!!!My sister and cousin both purchased their dress from Reni's, and even though I was familar with the shop I still wanted to shop around. (It had been a few years since my sister was married so I wanted to check out some shops that had not been around when she was shopping.) Well....let me say that Reni's has the best dresses, and definately the best service in town. I really feel the need to respond to the person in a particular review..there is nothing wrong with a security lock on the door, it's a safety issue. Also....who checks for a website to see a stores hours etc...how about an old fashioned phone call to hear an actual voice on the other end?(Which was very helpful and freindly at Reni's) OH..and they looked at my ring too, and I don't think they have a motive to see what kind of dress you might buy..they are being nice! I beleive by asking when your wedding is it helps them determine if you have time to order. When I was in...a young lady came in who was heading to Vegas the next day and they found her a dress she could take with her that day.Well anyway my gown and bridesmaids were perfect, and Reni's helped me have a beautiful wedding!!!!! If you are shopping for a wedding gown, you owe it to yourself to make a trip to Reni's before you buy a gown. I will say they are VERY busy esp. on Saturday, so you should call ahead and make an appointment. (I figured it was a good thing that they were so busy.) However, they never made me feel rushed at all. I also liked the fact they are not pushy at all. Reni herself told me to "sleep on it" and make sure that was the dress I wanted since I did have plenty of time to order the gown.Their dresses are very good quality. One of my favorite things about Reni's is they are so nice and who would ever guess that a bridal shop would be so fun? I love Reni's, and will be reccomending them to everyone!!!!!!
