Inspire Bridal truly stands up to it's name with an amazing inventory of bridal gowns, bridesmaid dresses and every accessory you need.  I was fortunate enough to have found the boutique and Julie the owner. She has so much knowledge and most important my very special gown. Her knowledge of bridal designers and latest trends helped made my experience enjoyable.  Thank you Inspire and thank you Julie.



I loved shopping for my dress at Inspire Bridal! The staff was great and very helpful. They were focused on me throughout my appointment. We were able to take photos of me and my bridesmaids in the dresses we tried on, which was helpful when it came to making a decision. The store was perfect for me because they had a lot of choices, but not so many to make it overwhelming.  They even offered great discounts for the bridesmaids dresses and tuxes : )



My entire experience at Inspire was amazing. Julie took the time to help me try on over 10 dresses, and she accessorized them with me.  I didn't have to look any farther.. I found my dress, shoes, and veil all in one place. There are tons of GORGEOUS dresses and I couldn't be happier with my selection :) thank you Inspire for making my big day perfect!

I live in the cities and drove down to Inspire based off a recommendation. They offer an INTIMATE wedding dress shopping experience with a really great variety of bridal gowns and accessories. I felt so special while trying on dresses.  The staff was SO attentive and easy to work with and were genuinely excited about my purchase.

I had the BEST experience with Inspire Bridal! I had found an Essense of Australia dress in a magazine and was on the hunt for it in October/November 2012. I live in the Minneapolis area and I had exhausted my search there and the only time I could find the dress in was in such a small sample size that I could barely get it on and had no idea what it would look like on me. I found Inspire by looking at vendors in MN for this designer. I called and they had the dress I wanted, but it was in the same smaller sample size. They mentioned that they thought they had ordered another sample of the same dress in a larger size because they liked it so much, so she took my information to look into it and would call me back. Probably 15 min later I got a call back saying they were getting the dress it was supposed to be there in about a week - I was thrilled!! After going to the store and seeing the dress in person and seeing it on me I fell in love with it. I was surprised at all the beautiful dresses they had at the store, they were only open for about a month at that point and they had a good selection and every dress was beautiful. I even found some other ones that I liked, just not as much as MY dress, which was surprising because after 5 stores in the Minneapolis area I didn't find anything I really liked. Because they were so helpful there I also ordered all of my Allure bridesmaids dresses with them. They made it very easy since everyone was spread out all over the state and kept me up to date with what was going on through calls or emails. Everything turned out so beautiful and it was really nice to have such a great experience during the stressful time of wedding planning. Julie and Amber are amazing, so sweet and helpful!  They were worth the drive and I would recommend them to anyone!!

Inspire Bridal was the first dress shop I walked into after I got engaged. I think my first visit was in February, and after going to shops in Minnesota, Washington D.C. and New York, it was the place I found my dress in July. It was such a great experience.  Julie & Amber were so helpful, patient and accommodating. The shop had great quality dresses, with unbeatable staff, and selection.  I highly recommend Julie and her team to all brides.



Inspire bridal did a wonderful job working with my fiancé. They took what was a very miserable experience for her shopping for dresses and made it enjoyable. She has no family and few friends here but Inspire Bridal went so far as to help her mother, who flew up from Florida get to the store before my fiancé to surprise her when she went to try on the dress.

Julie was more than accommodating for me and my mother. She stayed open late for us and was very helpful.

From scheduling the shopping appointment (they opened the store an hour early for my appointment!) to choosing a dress; Julie and Holly at Inspire were wonderful to work with. The selection of dresses for a shop of their size (it is a bit cozy, but oh so cute!) was wonderful (something for every body... Literally). In less than 2 hours my dress and the bridesmaid dresses were chosen, everyone was fitted and checked out. Professional, efficient and above all, a fun experience.



I came in spontaneously with a friend for her wedding dress and this place is amazing! Not only are all of the dresses just beautiful but the shop is adorable. The ladies here are so fun and easy going. I have been in a few weddings and never had such a pleasant experience as today in this shop. You will not feel like "just another customer" here. Support your local bridal shop and go here! You will not regret it! Thanks again ladies!

Julie made our experience so much fun when we came into the boutique to pick out bridesmaid dresses for my wedding.  I have bridesmaid's all over the county, and she made it easy when they ordered! The shop is beautiful, as well as the staff.  Inside and out, this bridal boutique is the best yet! Thank you!!! :)

The best decision I ever made was to purchase my wedding gown from Inspire Bridal Boutique. I regret wasting my time and energy on the other three bridal shops I visited. So future brides-to be make Inspire your number one stop!  Julie and her staff made my dress experience stress-free and relaxing.I described what I was looking for and she gave me many options to choose from. She devoted her time to me which made me feel important, comfortable and not pressured throughout the whole session. The staff were all so knowledgeable and willing to accommodate to my wants and needs. My experience was so wonderful that I purchased my bridesmaid dresses and even the tuxes for our wedding there. How convenient to be able to do all this in one stop. Needless to say I said YES to the dress!

I was so elated with Julie and her staff that I told two of my friends who just got engaged about my experience at Inspire and they went there and they also said YES to their dresses!So if you want excellent service, professionalism and someone who will seriously listen to you and give you all the attention you need it is important that you make Inspire Bridal the bridal store for you!

No where but Inspire!!!! This boutique is a diamond in the rough! I recently got engaged and we set our date for 5 months out, so finding the perfect dress seemed impossible. I decided to start local. From the time I walked in I LOVED this boutique. Holly was AMAZING and really listened to my wants as I frantically explained to her my "dream dress" with no pictures. She got it, her and my Matron of Honor found exactly what was in my head, just hanging there! I never in my life thought that finding a dress would be the easiest part of planning my wedding! To top that off, they have a wide variety of bridesmaid dresses and offer promotions for bridesmaids if you purchase your wedding gown there! The quality of these dresses are impecable! The shop is so clean and tidy.

And I cannot rave enough about the service!!!!!! Holly came in on her day off AND opened the shop at night on a day the shop was closed just to measure all of my bridesmaids and let them see/ try on the dress and see my dress! Inspire Bridal really lives up to its name! I wouldnt recommend anywhere else!!!!



I would recommend this bridal store to anyone looking for bridal gowns. Staff has been amazing all the way through this dress shopping process. Julie the owner did everything she could to keep her brides happy. The store is so cute; it is a place you have to go see. They even help my mom suprise me at the bridal store when I booked an appointment with them. You can take photos in the dress which helped as I lived too far to go back to try it on again. Inspire bridal boutique went ABOVE and BEYOND for all my bridal gown needs!!!



So, looking for a bridal gown is one of the biggest decisions I have EVER had to make. Plus, I had hoped it would be FUN! Well...I visited about 10 different bridal shops from Minnesota to Indiana and all I had was absolutely terrible experiences. Either the store didn't have the style I was looking for, a size that looked somewhat natural after being too small or too big, or even a sales person that would listen to me I broke down in tears and almost gave up. A family friend suggested we go to Inspire Bridal in St. Peter...lucky for us we just live about 5 miles south in Kasota. Right when I walked in I knew this was the place I would find my dress. It is so incredibly BEAUTIFUL! Everything you would want to see in a Bridal store, the design of the store was very intimate and personal, the dresses were hung so that you could take your time looking at different gowns and try on any style you could imagine. On Black Friday, Holly came in an hour early just to meet with us! That alone made me feel like an important bride! She continued to wow my mom, sister and I by really listening to what I was looking for, offering different styles that she thought would look good on my body type and dressing me up in jewelry and veils so that I would get the entire picture! I was having so much fun I didn't want to leave! But...I had appointments in the twin cities to look at other gowns so my mother drug me out of the store. Other bridal shops were so impersonal, I felt like I was at a cattle call. The stores were packed with hundreds of brides, none of the sales personal would listen to what I was looking for, I even had to stand on a stage next to 5 other brides and their families just to look in a mirror (that was especially dreadful...who wants to stand next to 5 other skinny brides and have their weird dad looking you up and down...not exactly my dream for picking out the dress of a lifetime.) So, after being worn down from that I completely gave up. But, Holly had told us she would be at Inspire till we booked it back there, tried on the most amazing dress (which I bought! Yay....along with bridesmaids dresses and a perfect grooms dinner dress, veil and jewelry) and again, had the most wonderful time feeling important, beautiful and that it truly was all about me! After all, isnt that how every bride should feel? I give Inspire 1000000 stars! I am so thankful to Holly and her hard work and have already recommended this boutique to many of my recently engaged friends!  Halleluiah to all brides out there---this is the bridal store of your dreams!
