I love my wedding dress! I came in here a year ago looking for a bridesmaid dress, and then came back for my own wedding dress. They have beautiful fabrics, styles, colors, and were so professional and sweet! I ordered a handmade silk dress in the design of a bridesmaids dress but in white, and a little longer. It fits beautifully, and looks amazing. I got everything taken care of easily; prices never changed, dates never wavered. I also like that for the same price -or maybe even less- as a chain retail store, I got to support a woman-owned small business!

I highly recommend Anna Elyse to any bride! I bought all of my bridesmaid dresses from Anna Eylse. The service and compassion that I received from the owner Annie touched my heart! Annie and her wonderful team went above and beyond to make sure that I was very happy with all of the dresses. Every time I spoke with Annie or one of her team members, they were supportive and kind. It was evident that they really cared about me as a customer and valued my feelings. I love the bridesmaid dresses that Annie is in the process of making and will always remember her kindness. Of all the people I have worked with through the wedding planning process, Annie is my absolute favorite! Anna Elyse Bridesmaids is top-notch vendor!

The service provided was simply gorgeous! And the dress is like the cherry on a cake! I had what i would like to have, the fabric is simply wonderful, rich, lightweight, luminous; the shape is a great design, comfortable even if elegant, perfect! The wedding and party isn't occurred yet, but the dress arrived today and I cannot wait to share how good my experience was. Definitely recommend this vendor, and unfortunately for me I had no possibility to visit the showroom. It should be great. Stop searching and choose Anna Elyse Bridesmaids.

I worked with Anna Elyse to purchase eight bridesmaids dresses for women who live all over the country. I was looking for a deep coral color that would look fall-ish enough for a early October wedding. The color that they had available wasn't exactly perfect (too pink) so I called the owner to break the sad news that I wouldn't be working with them and Annie told me about additional colors that they could order. She then hand selected several colors that were in the palate that I was considering and mailed swatches to me. As it turned out, ONE WAS ABSOLUTELY PERFECT. My relationship working with Annie and her fantastic team (especially Rikki!) was such a welcome relief from wedding vendor madness. They were professional, helpful, supportive, and on the ball 100% of the months leading up to my wedding. The dresses were a total hit - people are still taking about them and complimenting both the color, the style, and the fit on my beautiful bridesmaids. And the best part of it all ... they will truly wear their dresses again, which almost NEVER happens in the world of bridesmaids. THANK YOU ANNA ELYSE BRIDESMAIDS FOR EVERYTHING. If anyone wants to talk to a satisfied customer, ask Annie or Rikki for my phone number and I'll tell you in person about my experience.

After visiting their salon 3 months ago and met with the owner and designer Annie and having met Rikki to turn in the bridesmaid's dress orders, I am so happy I chose them to outfit my bridal party (total of 4). They are friendly, very responsive and the dress variety is amazing. All 4 of my girls won't be wearing the same thing, instead they will be wearing a dress that will be flattering to their unique shape and size. They told me it would take 10 weeks but the dresses arrived 2 weeks earlier than scheduled. The hems still need to be taken up since it's a bit longer than I wanted (even with the mini length option) but otherwise, it looks great on my Bridal Party.

I could not praise Anna Elyse enough! Working with Anna Elyse has been one of the highlights of our wedding planning process. Annie, the designer, and Rikki, her assistant are just absolutely delightful women and we thoroughly enjoyed each time we went into the shop because we got to spend time with them. We always ended up staying much longer then planned because we had so much fun! The dresses are beautiful and the high quality of them is worth every penny. You can tell that the dresses were made somewhere nice as opposed to a lot of the bridesmaid dresses I have worn in other weddings. They have so many beautiful designs and fabrics that it was hard for me to choose! I ended up selecting 4 colors and 7 different bodices because I loved them all so much. The mix of colors and different bodices looks so wonderful together and now each girl has a dress that fits her body type best. What we also loved about Anna Elyse is the fact that you are supporting a local business, these dresses are made right here in Pasadana or Los Angeles, they aren't being made in some giant warehouse overseas! You can walk into the back of the store and see where they are being made! We loved their dresses so much that my mother got her mother of the bride dress there and I got my rehearsal dinner dress, and of course both turned out just fabulous! I HIGHLY recommend Anna Elyse, not only will you get quality dresses for a reasonable amount but you will also get wonderful customer experience and get to meet two really fun girls!

I could not praise Anna Elyse enough! Working with Anna Elyse has been one of the highlights of our wedding planning process. Annie, the designer, and Rikki, her assistant are just absolutely delightful women and we thoroughly enjoyed each time we went into the shop because we got to spend time with them. We always ended up staying much longer then planned because we had so much fun! The dresses are beautiful and the high quality of them is worth every penny. You can tell that the dresses were made somewhere nice as opposed to a lot of the bridesmaid dresses I have worn in other weddings. They have so many beautiful designs and fabrics that it was hard for me to choose! I ended up selecting 4 colors and 7 different bodices because I loved them all so much. The mix of colors and different bodices looks so wonderful together and now each girl has a dress that fits her body type best.

Anna Elyse Bridesmaids is a dream come true. From the first time my mother and I went into their store in Pasadena, CA and 1) saw the array of gorgeous dresses and 2) met Rikki we knew that this was the place. I got married at quite the rustic barn venue in central CA and we wanted the dresses to simultaneously add elegance to the venue and complement its natural beauty. I also had a unique color scheme in mind (sage green/burnt orange/soft yellow) because I was planning to have 10 bridesmaids and feared that any one particular color would be overpowering. The 10 bridesmaids were of all ages, shapes and sizes, so it was also important to me that each of them felt comfortable and beautiful in whatever particular style they wanted. A tall order, I know. Enter Rikki. She was fabulous in helping pick out the right fabric and the right ciolors to match what I envisioned. She was unbelievably helpful working with my Maid of Honor and all of the bridesmaids on their particular orders (including 4 on the East Coast) and helping them find the style that best complimented their figures. There were no issues with any of the dresses when they were delivered and everyone looked stunning the day of the wedding and the photos are magical! The dresses couldn't look any better. From the first meeting, through the entire process and to the wedding day - Anna Elyse over delivered. I highly recommend them.

I purchased my bridesmaids dresses from Anna Elyse and could not have been more pleased with the entire experience! My nine bridesmaids live in nine different cities, including two overseas. I worried that coordinating everything from afar would be impossible, but Anna Elyse made it much easier for us. All of the forms and the assistance that we received made it very feasible to coordinate a large, complicated order. When the dresses came in, the girls were delighted with them, and the color was exactly what I had been envisioning. They were absolutely beautiful on my wedding day, and we could not have done it without Anna Elyse!

I just recently visited Anna Elyse's store in Pasadena and fell in love with these bridesmaid dresses for my girls! Annie, the store owner, went above and beyond to help us select the best collection and styles for the girls. The dresses come in a variety of fabric options depending on your style preference and budget. I really wanted a variety of options for my girls to choose the style that best suite each girls figure. Combined with the endless array of color options, you are sure to find something you like here!

Annie will make sure your bridesmaids select the best size. They even accommodate split sizes if your bust / waist put you into multiple dress size categories. This is great as it helps reduce the cost of alterations.

I found out these dresses are also sold to Nordstrom. I'd purchase a dress for a formal event anytime from this store.

I'd highly recommend checking out their shop and website. Worth your time!

I had the pleasure of meeting both Rikki and Annie. My bridesmaids and I had an amazing experience from beginning to end. Rikki is extremely patient, knowledgeable and super nice! I have a party of 7 girls, all different sizes, skin tones, etc and on the same day and only day we went all my bridesmaids found there perfect dress! They thank me for the experience. They love their dresses and color! I decided to use orange, and they had a huge selection of beautiful colors and designs. I chose two different oranges, one for my maid of honors and the other for the bridesmaids. My wedding is less than 2 months and all my girls already have their dresses! I did start shopping early thinking I was going to have a hard time finding the perfect dress for 7 girls but it was so easy and stress free. Again, thank you Rikki and Annie! I really appreciate your amazing service! I’ll be seeing you soon since I want to get some dresses for me too!

It was a such a great pleasure working with Anna Elyse Bridesmaids. My bridesmaids and I are older, in our early thirties, and we wanted to find classy and modern dresses for the wedding. There were so many styles to choose from, and it made it so much easier on the bridesmaids to choose one that they felt comfortable in while looking gorgeous. Rikki and Annie went above and beyond too by going out fabric shopping and finding a certain color that wasn't yet available on their site but I so desperately wanted for the wedding. The customer service was fabulous, they were both just fantastic and my bridesmaids looked absolutely amazing. My wedding was everything I envisioned. Thank you again!

I got my bridesmaids' dresses from Anna Elyse and I couldn't have asked for anything more. The dress styles are timeless and classic, and not at all cheesy like your typical bridesmaids dresses. The number of color options is unparalleled and the fabrics are amazing, such high quality. Rikki was incredibly responsive, helpful and accommodating. My wedding was in San Diego, and my bridesmaids were all over California, and yet the ordering and sizing process was seamless. I can't say enough about my experience with Anna Elyse. They are truly amazing, and any bride would be lucky to work with them.

In a word, FANTASTIC! No, FABULOUS. No, INCREDIBLE.

Annie, Rikki, and their team ensured that every question was answered (quickly and professionally) and that all of my bridesmaids got the star treatment while picking out the perfect dress! The dresses were made of very high quality material and the split sizing that's available helped out so much with alterations! Whenever I had a question, Annie or Rikki was always available via phone or e-mail, to answer another question from this crazy bride! Everything turned out perfectly and if I had to do my wedding all over again (which I don't plan on - haha), I would go back to Anna Elyse with no questions asked!

Not only was Anna Elyse a classy, feminine environment in-store, but Annie and her team were so willing to work with us to customize a look that worked with our wedding vibe and style. I would recommend Anna Elyse to anyone who has a difficult color, bridesmaid shape/size, or style request because this is a salon that will truly listen to and work with your personal preferences.

I ordered my bridesmaid and flower girl dresses from Anna Elyse, and I am writing to share my positive experience. Rikki at Anna Elyse is highly reliable and cares a lot about customer satisfaction. Our photos came back a couple of weeks ago and I absolutely got the elegant, classic look I wanted for my bridesmaids!

Exceptional customer service – I saw a real weddings photo online with a dress style and fabric color that I loved, but when I ordered my first set of swatches, I hadn’t guessed right on the color. When I ordered and paid for the second set of swatches, Rikki contacted me to ask if I needed help. She refunded my $5 and sent me the additional swatches free of charge. From that moment on, it was a pleasure to work with Rikki. She answers all emails promptly. She was always on top of the details of my order. For example, she arranged to delay production of one of my bridesmaid’s dresses when she changed sizes due to pregnancy. Finally, she arranged a special order of flower girl sashes in the same fabric as my bridesmaid dresses.

High quality product, great value – I found my way to Anna Elyse after experiencing a certain amount of frustration with what’s out there for bridesmaid dresses. I wanted a long dress in the perfect shade of pinky champagne. A couple of my bridesmaids are Mormon and so needed a modest cut. My mom wanted dresses in a non-synthetic fabric, because she is a snob about these things! We went with the Grace dress in snow dupioni with different bodices chosen by the bridesmaids. Finally, if you get on Anna Elyse’s mailing list you’ll see that good promotions come across fairly frequently. I ordered in August and was able to get a good discount!

Tricky measurements – Sizing was the trickiest part of ordering from Anna Elyse. Anna Elyse provides lots of information on how to take the measurements correctly but, in the end, I think 2 or 3 of my 5 bridesmaids had to have alterations.

Anna Elyse Bridesmaids was wonderful !!! Rikki spent so much time with me, on multiple occassions, helping me come up with exactly what I needed for each bridesmaid. I loved their colors and fabrics, but still, they went the extra step when I thought I wanted a color in a fabric they didn't have -- they went hunting for it in the garment district !!! Of course, they found just what I wanted, and then I ended up combining their different cuts on top and bottom to come up with 4 perfect bridesmaid dresses -- each one perfectly designed to be most flattering for my girls. The dresses are a little expensive, but given that you get to come up with a different style for each girl that flatters them, yet one unified look for your wedding, it's well worth it. Not to mention the level of personal service and care and attention they give! In the end, all the girls looked beautiful and were really happy with what they wore !!! I DEFINITELY recommend them !!!

Anna Elyse is a great brand, because the people behind it are so committed to making heir brides and bridesmaids as happy as they can possibly be. I loved being able to offer my bridesmaids a selection of styles, because it allowed me to create a cohesive look without sacrificing individuality. The dresses are on the expensive side, but they are well-made and the service is so good, it more than makes up for the slightly high prices.

I really hate writing bad reviews. I\'m not the type of person that likes to spew negativity and Annie and her assistant both seem like very nice people. But I really can not recommend Annie\'s bridesmaid dresses and I feel like other brides should know what they are getting into before their bridesmaids shell out a bunch of money for ill-fitting bridesmaid dresses. Also, I hope that Anna Elyse will make improvements so that other brides do not have the same experience I did. \r\n\r\nEverything was great until we signed the contracts and placed the deposit. My bridesmaids measurements we\'re due about a month and a half after we signed the contract. A few of my bridesmaids live in the LA area and were able to get their measurements taken in Pasadena but a few we\'re out of state and had to get their measurements done by a tailor. Here are my frustrations with the measurement process:\r\n\r\n1) Anna Elyse asks for non-standard measurements. Most measurement guides use the natural waist, and the widest part of the hip but Anna Elyse does not, the measurement they use is some number of inches below the bust and then you measure some number of inches below that for the hips. This makes getting measurements complicated. On my sister who is 5\'2 this also meant that her \"hip measurement\" was way below her crotch. On another girl it meant that her waist measurement recommendation was for a size 14. According to a standard size chart she would be an 8 (which is the size she normally wears). \r\n\r\n2) If you ask Anna Elyse for help in picking a size they will refuse which is VERY FUSTRATING when trying to figure out the correct size. When I emailed asking for help this is what I was told: \"I unfortunately cannot give my opinion or any sort of recommendation on sizing. One thing that would be good to consider is if she is certain that her waist measurement was taken accurately. An incorrect waist measurement is very common and can result in bridesmaids choosing a size dress that is too large for them.\" This is SO NOT HELPFUL. After that she referred me to the size chart. These are their dresses, they should know how they fit and be able to help with recommendations. (The bridesmaid who was supposed to get a size 14 according to the Anna Elyse size chart ordered an 8 because she has never worn a 14 and decided to go with the size she normally wears which was the right move - she did need alterations but the 14 would have been WAY to big on her.)\r\n\r\n3) They offer split sizes (like a 2/4) which is great but again WOULD NOT OFFER ADVISE on whether a girl\'s measurements made them a good candidate for split sizing - again referring me to a chart. \r\n\r\nBasically this all sets it us so that when the dresses are made if their is any problem with them then, oh, you must have done your measurements wrong. \r\n\r\n4) Every single one of my SEVEN bridesmaids needed alterations. Including the 2 girls who had their measurements done in LA. I understand the dresses are not made to measurement, but they are supposed to be made to size and the girls all ordered shapes that we\'re flattering on them and that they would normally wear off the rack. A size 2 should have fit like a normal 2, a 4 like a 4. They didn\'t.\r\n\r\n-On one of the girls (who is a c-cup) she ordered a size 4 dress (as recommended by the size chart) and the dress fit perfect in the waist but was WAY too big in the bust (it was like the bust was made for a woman with DD breasts with huge implants - it wasn\'t a normal bust at all.) She isn\'t a flat girl and she had to have the chest taken way in. \r\n\r\n-Another girl who had her measurements done in Pasadena was sent a dress a full size too big. The dress said the correct size on the tag but it was not the right size. She had actually purchased a size 2 sample dress from Anna Elyse when we were the showroom just because she thought it was cute. The sample dress was a very similar shape to the dress she ended up ordering for her bridesmaid dress, yet the dress she received was at least a size larger than the sample dress she owned. Obviously this is not a case of loosing weight since the measurements we\'re taken because the sample dress still fit the same. The sample dress was a 2, her measurement recommendation was for a 2, yet the dress they sent fit like a 4.\r\n\r\n-2 of my out of state bridesmaids had to get major alterations on their dresses that cost over $180 each (making the total cost to them for their bridesmaid dresses over $400 each).\r\n\r\nFor these reasons, I can not recommend Anna Elyse to other brides. Great in concept, but their customer service during the measurement process is lacking and they make the process very frustrating (which is not what a bride planning her wedding needs) and considering the high price of alterations my girls spent to make their dresses look decent, I\'d say you\'re better off going with JCrew which is what I should have done in the first place. At least JCrew dresses have a standard fit.

I really hate writing bad reviews. I\'m not the type of person that likes to spew negativity and Annie and her assistant both seem like very nice people. But I really can not recommend Annie\'s bridesmaid dresses and I feel like other brides should know what they are getting into before their bridesmaids shell out a bunch of money for ill-fitting bridesmaid dresses. Also, I hope that Anna Elyse will make improvements so that other brides do not have the same experience I did. \r\n\r\nEverything was great until we signed the contracts and placed the deposit. My bridesmaids measurements we\'re due about a month and a half after we signed the contract.

Anna Elyse Bridesmaids™ & Annie Girl Couture Creations™ FLAGSHIP Salon and Design Studio responded with the following comments:

WOW! What a difficult review to wake up to! Fortunately, of the well over 50 bridal parties that we worked with this past year, both locally, across the country and internationally, this is truly an exception. Both my Exec. Asst., Rikki, and I worked with this bride personally and spent considerable time and effort to make the process comfortable for her and her maids. The bridal party had a quite a few appointments with us (4 or 5 if I'm not mistaken) and tried on dress after dress after dress in our Flagship Salon in Pasadena, so they could choose the one they liked best. We even sent dresses across the country for one bridesmaid to try on before she ordered. This same bridesmaid had special needs due to a diabetes monitor she was trying to cover and asked if we could put pockets into the dress she chose. We were willing to make the accommodation and even do a little pattern work without charging a fee, but did recommend that it might not look as good as she'd like due to the style chosen and suggested another style. The maid chose not to take us up on our offer.

The bride, "A", chose a particular color - one she was looking for and could not find at J. Crew, her admitted first choice to purchase dresses from. We made a special accommodation by holding out the bolt of fabric from our stock so the dye lot would be the same as she saw when she was in our salon. We answered countless emails, answered as many questions as we could and even made accommodation of scheduling and meeting an appointment time to size the local girls when the Salon was not open. We went out of our way to contact two of the bridesmaids from out of town as we had some questions on their sizing. One measured a size 0, 4, 6 (bust, waist and hips) and chose a size 2/4 split size to lessen alterations. Another maid submitted her paperwork choosing a size 6. Rikki (my fabulous assistant) called her directly as her measurements seemed out of range. Following that phone consultation, she ended up choosing a size 4 and admitted that the measurements that she had taken were not done correctly. Seriously, how many other designers call their customers because something doesn't look right on the form!!! (Doubtful J. Crew would do that!)

Bottom line, you cannot please everyone, as much as we try. There's an old adage about that. Rather than counter every attack "A" has made, here are a few quotes from some of our loveliest, happy brides. We do sincerely wish "A" all the best!

"Thank you for the AMAZING customer service! I could not imagine going with another designer for such an important event! I have been a bridesmaid in the past and ordered from salons and just paid and got the dress…zero contact with anyone on a personal level. You and Annie have been there for me every step of the way and really helped my girls to create a dress that they will wear over and over! I sing your praises to every bride I meet who is debating on their dresses!”

“The dresses fit everyone perfectly, and as you can see, they photographed really well! Thanks again for all your help...you made the whole experience completely stress-free, and we couldn't be happier with how everything turned out! You helped make my "big day" perfect, I have to give credit where credit is due :) You guys are fabulous.”

"I can honestly say that this was one of the easiest processes that I had to go through during all of my wedding planning. All of the ladies that I spoke with at Anna Elyse were friendly and helpful whenever we needed it! The hardest part for me was making a decision on which dress and which color... since I loved them all!!!

"Thank you SO much. We really do appreciate all of your help and I can’t wait to see the girls in these amazing dresses. You and Rikki were SO easy to work with and made ordering (from across the country!) such a breeze. I have and will continue to recommend you to my peers. I couldn’t be happier!"

"Anna Elyse Bridesmaids was a perfect fit! It was such a joy to work with the team and help make our big day a breeze. The dresses were amazing, fit perfectly, and quality of them were outstanding. I ordered these dresses from Canada, and it was outstanding work, and received them so fast. It was such a pleasure working with Anna Elyse Bridesmaids and I would highly recommend them! Thank you for being a part of our special day and making it everything I imagined!!"

I too do not enjoy writing a bad review. This one is legitimate, and truly just a few facts to consider when shopping around for such a critically important part of one of the biggest days in your life. I feel this product was absolutely over priced for the garment we received. The strings left unsewn on the outter portions of my dress were shocking and in plenitude. The zippers were crooked and more stubborn than any dresses any of us have ever had. (what a shame this was the day of as one of us had a rip.) I received the dress and was also utterly surprised that the workmanship seemed so....homemade. The measurement guide on all of the bridesmaids was completely off. Which can be acceptable but to the extreme extent that we all experienced was much more than a minor alteration could adjust. This product is not worth the tremendous price you pay after all is said and done. We made the best of it and the wedding was still fine but none of us were happy we took that initial trip to Pasadena. Being a bridesmaid should not be this costly or have so many obstacles.
