I had a wonderful experience at A Heart's Desire! I must admit that I was a bit of a difficult case, as I had a very tight budget of $800. My bridal consultant encouraged me to look through the dresses, pulling the ones that I liked, & then she pulled a few as well. She was patient & kind, but also had a bit of no-nonsense in her that I appreciated. I ended up buying an Allure dress that I'm in LOVE with, & it was priced a few hundred dollars less than at other larger bridal boutiques! The dress came in quickly, & I set up a couple of appointments to try it on (once for my bridesmaids, once for my mom and sister). SO pleased with A Heart's Desire! I highly recommend it!

Unfortunately, there are very limited options for wedding dress shopping on the central coast. A Heart's Desires Bridal has some beautiful dresses, but they don't carry enough sizes. I was only able to try on 2 dresses that actually fit my curvy frame (size 8 on top, size 16 on bottom), and they were not at all the style I was looking for. I ended up choosing an Allure Bridals dress online that they ordered for me at the store. It was a bit too pricey (almost $1500) for how simple it was, but I guess wedding dresses are very expensive these days! The ladies in the shop were hit and miss in their professionalism; I had a few really great interactions with them, and I also had a few disappointing interactions with them. The saving grace was their seamstress, Maria. She worked wonders bringing the top of my dress down 8 sizes, and she was always sweet and kind and professional. Her service was very worth the extra cost.

About two-thirds of the store is designer with top brands such as Allure and Maggie Sottero. The other third of the store is "on sale," but really they are a jumble of different wedding dresses that you can buy off the rack. I found mine here and got a fair deal on it (a Mori Lee dress). I love the dress and they are bringing it in 3-4 sizes to fit me perfectly. The ladies are extremely helpful and not too pushy, but also make you feel like a bride. I also chose my veil here and we had some problems with the ordering. However, every time I called, they were very prompt and professional and returned by calls as quickly as possible. They even called the vendor to get them to ship one to me, even though it was "back-ordered" (the company was shipping to brides who had sooner wedding dates than mine).

I saw A Hearts Desire at a Bridal Fair and thought their dresses were beautiful, I should have been clued in at the service I would receive based on this first contact but I gave them the benefit of the doubt. At the bridal fair I tried getting information, but besides handing me a flyer, the ladies there were not to willing to help me. They made me call to get an appointment, as I walked by later I was they were booking people then and there, but their representative didn't bother booking me when I asked. She had me call the store instead. So when I finally had the appointment, I took my 2 bridesmaids with me, when we arrived they made us wait 25 min, because they had over booked. We waited, and looked at some of the dresses. When I got in the room, the lady asked me some questions about taste, size, and budget then started pulling dresses. She brought me 3 that didn't fit, and would only let me try those 3 on. They were not even the style I wanted, she very rudely told me it was because of my size, I'm a size(12), and that her selections were all they had for my frame. Needless to say we walked out. I am thankful to them, because of my experience, it lead me to another bridal shop and I ended up getting the gown of my dreams, a beautiful Ivory Vera Wang, at a fantastic price of $3,700. Needless to say they missed out on a customer for life.

I bought my wedding dress from here and ended up losing 20 pounds. The seamstress was a magician and transformed my dress. It fit perfectly and I've never felt more beautiful.

A Heart's Desires was the first store I went in to search for my bridal gown. Ashley was who helped me and she was great throughout the entire process. I set a realistic budget and Ashley helped me stick to it - thank goodness.

The day I was there, the store was dressing girls for a photo shoot, and one of my girls saw a dress on one of the models and knew I had to try it on - they took it off the model and brought it on for me to try on. It was the dress I chose! So beautiful, unique, and just my style - not anything overly fluffy or poofy or sparkly or princessy - just elegant and beautiful.

I had quite a few alterations needed, as I thought the smaller size would fit - it didn't haha. The seamstress was SO kind and helpful and did not make me feel bad at all for barely fitting in the dress - she is a pro and on the day of my wedding, my dress fit PERFECT. I had a few other custom alterations and I was scared to find out the total cost - I was amazed at how affordable it was!! I picked up my dress THE DAY BEFORE MY WEDDING - she got everything done on a short timeline!!

I still get compliments on my dress to this day - it still is unique, I have not seen anyone else wearing it or anything like it!

My husband was in shock at how gorgeous my dress was and still talks about it. Thank you A Heart's Desires Bridal for making me look and feel like a million bucks on my wedding day!

Love, love love this store. It was my last try to find a dress i loved! Being a Plus Size Bride I was having the worst experience trying on dresses... until i walked into this store. the ladies here are FANTASTIC!! They helped me find that perfect dress, and took in all my needs and wants. They treat you like a Million Dollar Bride not one on a Budget. They made me see the bride inside and find the perfect dress to greet my future husband at the alter. I would recommend this store to Brides of ALL SIZES!!!

I had nightmarish experience with my first bridal salon (in NYC), which resulted in me not having a dress ONE week before my wedding (just in case you are an East Coaster, NEVER use Gabriella Bridal in SoHo!). I turned to A Heart's Desires the Tuesday before my wedding, and they couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating! They helped me try on so many dresses until we finally found the right one. Then they rushed in the nicest seamstress ever to make sure my dress was ready in time. I cannot thank them enough for saving my wedding day! They have a great selection of dresses, and the staff is incredibly kind and knowledgeable. I would DEFINITELY recommend A Heart's Desires to anyone who asked!!
