Named Best Bridal Shop in MS




Elle James was a wonderful experience! My family and I fell in love the minute we walked in the store. The owner, Kristin was professional, attentive, and down to earth. I found the perfect dress and recommend any brides looking for the best place in MS to go get your dream dress at Elle James Bridal!

Kristin was an absolute dream to worth with, and the studio space was chic and comfortable! I didn’t have to go anywhere else to find a dress (1st time’s the charm!), and Kristin really listened to what I wanted and supported me throughout the process. Kristin even stayed open past her hours to accommodate us and had an amazing selection of dresses.

I had THE BEST experience shopping for my wedding dress at Elle James Bridal. Kristin (the owner) is so helpful and genuinely cares about helping brides find THE dress for their special day. The store surrounds you with a cozy and classy environment. My family and friends that joined to help me had a blast. Not only does she have numerous, beautiful dresses in the store, but she also hosts many trunk shows which bring designer dresses into MS from all over the world. The dress I chose ended up coming from that weekend’s trunk show. Prior to my appointment, she personally called me to explain how trunk show dresses work. She was going to give me an opportunity to switch my appointment to another date if I saw fit. Although, after asking which style of dresses I liked she recommended for me to keep my original apt. Kristin knew the styles I described would match the trunk show dress options perfectly. She was so right! It only took me an hour to find the most stunning and breath taking dress. I would recommend all MS brides visit Elle James Bridal before making appointments to bridal stores in nearby states.

Kristen is amazing. We had already gone to two Bridal Shops by the time we came here, and I had lost hope I was going to find a dress I loved. I was proven wrong! I wish I had come here first, because Kristen handled everything so perfectly. She had pulled so many beautiful dresses that fit my personality, and then also let me look around in case I saw another one (which I very much appreciated!). She ended up finding me THE most beautiful dress I could’ve imagined, and it had all the flowers I had dreamed of on it. :) Not to mention she surprised me by making me realize that a blush underlay worked great with my complexion and took my love of the dress to a whole new level. I can’t say enough good things about Elle James Bridal, because Kristen did the impossible: she made everyone with me agree 100% on THE dress.

My experience with Elle James was far better than I could have imagined. From the moment you book your appointment, Kristin makes you feel like you’re the only bride in the world. She had already picked out gowns for me to try on based on pictures I sent her, and I loved every one she picked out. She has great taste and makes the whole process seem so relaxed and fun. The salon itself is beautiful and clean with good lighting that makes you feel gorgeous. Kristin is so knowledgeable about her gowns and designers, as well as the whole buying and alterations process. I wouldn’t go anywhere else in the Jackson area to find a wedding dress - Elle James is simply the best!

I had the best experience with Elle James! The thing I love most was probably how modern yet classic all the dress selections were. It is literally the only wedding dress place that I even consider going to in MS. Kristin the owner of the store was also absolutely amazing and made the whole experience so enjoyable. I recently just moved to MS so a few of my family members flew in from out of town just to help me find my dress for the weekend. Kristin was so accommodating that she offered to come in at 8PM after we have looked at 3 other places in the Memphis area to open the store so I can show my family THE DRESS and share this moment with them. Thank you so much Elle James for such a wonderful experience!!

I went to a few different bridal shops, and Elle James was BY FAR the best one! The shop is absolutely stunning; it’s so classy and chic. My experience there made me feel so appreciated, and the one-on-one attention could not have been better. Kristin has amazing taste and picked out my dream dress. As I was putting it one, she said “I could be wrong but I think this is gonna be the one”, and OH MY GOSH was she right! I truly had a “Say Yes to the Dress” moment at Elle James. I literally cannot say enough good things about this place! Kristin pays beautiful attention to detail and truly cares about you and making your wedding day as magical as possible. I would give this more than five stars if I could. Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful experience.

Wonderful! Elle James Bridal was the absolute most perfect choice I could make when looking for my gown. Kristin was FANTASTIC! The bridal boutique was beautiful, the dresses were stunning, and Kristin’s help and knowledge was much appreciated! I had a large group of ladies come with me and Kristin made sure everyone was comfortable. Before my appointment, I was asked what I liked and what I did not like... Kristin had a rack full of gowns she had pulled for me and I loved every single one. They were just as I had described and imagined. She helped me put on each dress, talked about the beautiful features, and what we could add or take off! She never once was pushy, only very laid back and listened to what the soon-to-be bride had to say. I am ecstatic about my dress and I am proud to say it was purchased at Elle James Bridal!!
