Friendly and Amazing place! – My mother and I randomly stopped in there and found the wedding dress of my dreams. Linda was so nice and the atmosphere was so much better then the other bridal places I went to. I tried on so many dresses at other places and did not like any of them. Every dress I tried on at Thoughts and Best Wishes was beautiful. The first dress I tried on ended up being the perfect one for me and it is the most beautiful thing I will probably ever wear!! I would recommend this place over all of the other bridal shops in the Capital District!!
Sincere and Straightforward – I had a great experience at Thoughts and Best Wishes. I didn't have an appt., but I walked in and was helped within minutes. I was trying on gowns for a long time and Linda continued to help me and was very patient and positive. I liked this bridal salon better than the others I've been to in the area-- everything about it is honest, sincere, and straightforward. No ripping out labels or hiding prices-- all the information you need is out in the open on the tags from the beginning, the way it should be. Nothing sketchy about this place, unlike some other local salons. I recommend you stop in.
Amazing Hospitality – These people want to make you happy. They greet when you walk in the door, they will be as helpful during decision time as you want (never too pushy), and they thank you as you leave. A wedding is a special day and they love to know all the details, so that they can point you in the right direction. We started out at David's Bridal buying my wedding gown, wishing we had waited til we came here. And even though I didn't buy my gown there they still let me try it on in the store with the bridesmaid's dresses. I am now buying all of my wedding party's attire there (even the guys), doing my gowns alterations there and my mom found a dress that she loved (which they oder off online special for her). They truly love what they are doing and show it every step of the way.
Outstanding Customer Service and Selection – I have gone to most all bridal stores in the area for my wedding dress and I was dissapointed by either selection or customer service. But when i found Thougts and Best Wishes I was beyond ecstatic! There were so many options of gowns from my favorite designers and every employee there made it a great experience! I was given the utmost attention and did not feel rushed.... every question i had was more than welcome! I Highly recommend this shop for brides!
Absolutely Awesome Experience! – My best friend is getting married in May and we decided to go here to purchase our bridesmaid dresses. We had a great time and the whole team let us try on practically EVERY dress in the store and helped us to make a decision without being overly pushy or trying to make a sale. They truly wanted us to be happy! A few months later we went to look at tuxes for the groom and his party. I was thrilled with the experience! They were getting ready for prom season but made room for us anyway. They really helped us make choices in colors and we had a great time!! We all can't wait for our stuff to come in!!!
Best place to go for your wedding!!!! – Thoughts and Best Wishes is a bridal store that has every brides needs. They have amazing wedding dresses, accessories, invitations, tuxs and much much more. Not only are the wedding details great but the customer service that is provided by the owner and her staff is amazing. They will help for anything you need and much much more. Best place hands down in the capital region!!
New Management – Linda and the staff at T & B were absolutly amazing. I have been to a few bridal shops in search of my bridesmaids dresses. We went in on a friday evening and Linda and I believe her daughter Megan were there to assist us in many ways. The girls were able to look around and pick out which dresses they liked and try them out, we had a little mini fashion show anyway the staff was not pushy at all they were there to help us in any possible way they could. Today, I went in my my fiance to look at tux's there were two other brides there as well, even though she was busy she still made it a point to come check on us and even write up our order even though we aren't getting married for a few months but by then it will be prom season. She went out of her way to ensure us that by doing this now may help prevent less confusion later on. Again the ladies were so helpful and have made my wedding expirence that much better. I know alot of people have said some horrible things about the previous owner/manager but the ladies are truly great to work with and I definatly reccommend going there!!!
Best Store Ever!!! – I am proud to say that I am buying my beautiful wedding dress from Thoughts and Best Wishes. My dress was one of the dresses on display at the Colonie Center Mall (second floor-near Boscov's). Linda and Andrea are the new proud to be owners of Thoughts and Best Wishes. I never visisted the store prior to this new year. So I can say I never knew or heard of the old owners. But from the reviews I've read of the old owners it was bad.
Any way I went to several different dress shops and was thinking of dresses that I wanted to wear. My friend and I were driving by and say the shop and I said "hey lets give that one a shot?" So we went in and was greeted first thing. I had my dresses that I wanted to try on brought to the dressing room, with no limit to how many dresses I wanted. I went back a couple more times with different people then I one day Linda showed me this new dress that was very similar to the one I had on (which was going to be my dress) until this one. I tried it and it fit like a glove it was the one dress. I would have never thought to look but they knew that this dress so similar and they showed it to me...They are so wonderful, thoughtful, and very helpful. They aren't pushy at all. Andrea looked up a couple prices for me and she got right back to me with those prices and any additional information that I need. They always greet me and other customers by there name when they walk in. You can't get more personalized service than that. I love this place! My bridesmaids and my finance and his party will be getting there attire from here as well. Its a one stop shop from, gowns, to bridesmaid dresses, tuxes, to invitations, to The Piano Man right downstairs. These girls are wonderful pay them a visit and they will always greet you with a smile!
Great Experience – I have recently went to Thoughts and Best Wishes in Latham and was amazed by the experience. I am newly engaged and have decided to purchase all my bridesmaid dresses and my own dress from the business. Although I did not go to under old management, the new owners are very friendly and will point you in the right direction of what you are looking. There is also a wide variety of dresses to pick from. I would highly recommend this business to anyone. If you are looking for friendly service and a great experience all together, this place is excellent.
New owners= new experience! – I went to T & B wishes for a friends wedding last year under the old management and it was a horrifying experience... I just recently went there for MY wedding because they are the only store in the area to carry the bridesmaid dress i was looking for... I was absolutely amazed by the change in atmopshere. We had a pleasant experience. We were helped but not overly pushed...the girls there helped us find what we were looking for and offered any assistance without seeming pushy. They helped us compare colors... and also did provide me with information on when my designers typically retired their dresses so that if I had my mind set on one I wouldn't come back and have it not be there anymore, which was nice. I am glad someone with manners and retail knowledge took over this store because it use to be a disaster but now it is a place I would go again and recommend people going to. So if you had a bad experience there in the past---beware---they have significantly improved their business!!!!!
