I came to Ann's to get a quote for my alterations on my wedding gown. I had purchased the gown off the rack in San Diego on vacation,so was looking for a place to get a few things done in this area. I needed the dress let out about an inch or so, a bustle, and wanted the top to be turned into a sweetheart.

I set up an appointment on a Monday morning with my mom who was visiting from California. We drove thirty minutes and were met by a woman (Ann?) who never introduced herself, even after I shook her hand and introduced my mom and myself. I showed her the gown, she asked me to get in it and then spent about two minutes looking at it before she asked me how much I wanted to spend, without really looking at the build of the dress or the fabric. I said $200, which I knew was low, but really because I didn't know what a starting point would be. She responded with "Not gonna happen" and quoted me at $950 for the three things I wanted done. She also went on and on that she would be pressed for time with all the work it would take to let it out (my wedding is in October) and she's not even sure she could do it (again, stressing that it was because she had to make it bigger). I said I would have to think about it, since it was so much more than I expected and she responded with "Yeah, I figured." We left, the whole thing taking not more than 10 minutes, and as we left she goes "good luck" - not "hope to hear from you", "would love to do the work if you decide to get it done", etc. It was like she had judged us immediately after we walked in.

Anyway, we found another seamstress who said he could do all of it for $150, opened the seams underneath to really look at it, pinned it, and spent the time with me before giving the quote. He's going to take a month to do it, but only because I said I didn't need it until then - he could probably get it done before that with no problem.

I didn't want to make it into something, but I am plus size, and the entire time she made

I just bought my dress from here. At first I was a little hesatant because i have already looked and one other place but was truley in love wit one i found online. I told the lady (who I assume is the owner) what I like, the date of my wedding and my budget. She told me what I wanted was out of my price range but she pulled a few dresses off of the sale rack and one that was close to my budget. I loved the first one I tried on! It was perfect. She was very nice and asked me the right questions right away. And also helped me getting in to the dresses. I would highly recommend going here. Just make sure to make an appointment

Update: Ann did a miracle. She turned my size 12 sample dress in to a size 2, that fits like a dream. The dress is beautiful lace and she kept all the detail. I cant say enough good things about her and the process!

Buy your dress from Ann's!! We had been to a few other places before we went to Ann's. Unlike other stores Ann didn't rush in to help me or get involved when I first walked in. She gave me my space to browse which I liked. I bought a David Tutera dress. It needed some alterations once we ordered it and Ann did them perfectly. She also fixed my mother's veil so I was able to wear it on my wedding day too. My mother also purchased a David Tutera dress from Ann's. Ann did not have the exact dress in stock since it was a new style for 2016. Ann had my mom try on 3 different dresses, that when combined were the new style. She told my mom it would look beautiful and boy was she right!! The dress was stunning. Ann got the sizing perfectly. When we went to Ann's she always had it booked so we had all of her attention. Ann is a professional and it was a pleasure doing business with her! I would wear my dress everyday if that was socially acceptable!

I made an appointment at Ann's because they carried dresses by several designers I was interested in. Of the five dresses I had in mind, they had one. My mom came in from out of town for the appointment and my 3 bridesmaids came with us as well. Ann's husband asked when the wedding was (7 months from my appointment... we only had an 8 month engagement) and then he pretty much laughed at me saying that I might get lucky enough to find something they could get in time (because of their great relationship with certain designers). They then told us to look around and didn't help with pulling dresses at all. I am a tall athletic size 12. Nothing fit me in this store. Ann tried shoving me into a bridal size 8 and then said to hold it in front of me to get the idea. Finally I found a gown I sort of liked (that happened to be over budget) and she showed me a picture of her size 0 daughter-in-law wearing the same gown and said "See it looks good on everybody. Isn't she beautiful." I'm not kidding. I was so upset and couldn't wait to get out of there! Save yourself the frustration and go elsewhere. There are beautiful dresses at many other boutiques and stores where people are 100 times nicer and more deserving of your business. I found that out when I bought my dress at a different store the next day!

I bought my wedding dress from Ann and every time I saw it I feel more and more in love with it! Ann and her husband are very professional and absolutely know their business! At first I was hesitant to try on a dress because it was over my budget- I am so happy I did because it was THE ONE and their were willing to work with my budget. Throughout the alterations everything was done extremely well- she clearly has talent! I will warn, they can come off a bit rude or aggressive at times but they will absolutely work with you so if you question something or just don't understand, do not be afraid to speak up- they will help! I have went to at least 3 boutiques and called more and am so happy I ended up here! I have already recommended this boutique to others for bridal gowns, mother of the bride dress, and bridesmaid dresses.

I was lucky enough to find my wedding dress at Ann’s Boutique because working with Ann and her husband, Faris, was amazing! During my first visit I was only planning to browse the boutique’s options, but Faris recommended a dress for me and I fell in love and bought it the same day. I had 3 dress fittings to make sure that the dress fit properly, and Ann’s alterations made the dress perfect! I felt so great on the wedding day. Ann and Faris are fantastic individuals who provide great service at a competitive price. I am so happy I found my wedding dress at Ann’t Boutique and had the opportunity to work with Ann and Faris!

I purchased my dress from Ann's Boutique. They have an incredible selection of all different styles of wedding dresses, bridesmaids dresses, flower girl dresses, and mother of the bride dresses. I knew that what I wanted would be difficult to find, because it is not a very popular style. After looking at a few other shops, Ann's was the only place that had the style I wanted (and more than one option at that!) The owners make you feel like family. I stopped in without an appointment, and they were very kind in accommodating me. (but do them a favor, and make an appointment) Since then, I have been back for my first fitting, and it feels like visiting good friends. They take care of their customers!
I highly recommend Ann's!

I said yes to the dress and it's all because of the fabulous customer service by Faris and Ann, herself! They were both so welcoming and helpful from the time I walked into the store. They helped me to find dresses similar to what I had in mind, but also encouraged me to try dresses I would never have thought to try. Their honest and professional opinions helped me to pick the perfect dress for me and my budget and I couldn't be happier. I would suggest Ann's Boutique to everyone looking for a great quality wedding dress. My wedding day will be perfect because of Ann's. :)

While I saw quite a few negative reviews regarding this vendor I was skeptical going in about the attitudes of the owners (all bad reviews were about their attitude). However, I was pleasantly surprised! My dress was originally around $2,400 but since it was last season I got it for $1,100. Everyone was so nice and my dress shipped in about 3 months and arrived almost a whole month early. This was a concern of mine since my engagement was only six months and I did not begin dress shopping until five months out.

My one concern was that the alterations were over $500 (almost half my dress). I probably had 15 layers of tulle that needed to be hemmed though. In hindsight not that I ask around, $500 is not unreasonable for a wedding dress. Ridiculous? Yes. Out of the normal for wedding dresses? No.

That is one thing to keep in mind. Everything in the wedding world is severely overpriced but that is part of the game. You can go elsewhere for things such as cake and food but when it comes to a wedding dress you don't have many options unless you start thinking out of the box.
