Ok Yon So was a young upcoming fashion designer in Korea in the mid 70's, when she met and married an American and moved to the U.S. She spent years learning English and raising a family. In the early 90's a call came from an old colleague to come to Texas and build a small chain of stores there. To make a long story short she broke out on her own and created Aria Bridal. Her family caught her vision and there are now over 11 Aria Bridals nationwide.

Our store is located in the North San Diego area near Rancho Santa Fe. We have been in this location for over 9 years.

Aria Bridal is run with a unique blend of servant leadership principles and guided by Oky's incredible sense of style. You won't see us spend millions of dollars to advertise a $99.00 wedding dress. Our satisfied customers are our best source of growth.

Whether you are going to a White House ball, the Emmies, prom, or your own wedding, Aria Bridal makes your shopping experience a comfortable fit. We never pressure or “hard sell” anyone. Our clients range from movie stars and the extremely wealthy to the young girl getting her first formal. People drive from different states knowing we have the best ecclectic selection to fit every shoppers taste. Read less

Had a wonderful time trying on wedding dress. The team was great picking out exactly what type of dress I was looking for. Remembered me every time I came in. Did a wonderful job on alterations. Everyone was so nice and was excited for me.

One of my good friends (one of my bridesmaids) had recommended that I look for a Maggie Sottero dress; she had gotten a Maggie Sottero dress a few years prior for her wedding (I was one of her bridesmaids, too!) ... she got her dress from Aria Bridal. A few days after she recommended the designer to me, my best friend (and Maid of Honor) also recommended Maggie Sottero. I scheduled an appointment at Aria Bridal, and tried on six different designs by Maggie Sottero, and knew I had found "the one!" I came back a couple weeks later (by myself), tried it on again to be sure I wasn't just giving in to peer pressure, and I knew it was perfect! After that, I returned several times between alterations and finding dresses for my mother, mother-in-law, and flower girl - they all got their dresses here, too! The staff here treated me like family, and were so happy to see me every time! I absolutely loved working with them. They did an excellent job on my alterations, too! The prices are great, the dresses are amazing, the staff is super friendly, and the alterations were perfect! I have recommended Aria to every other bride I know, and I will continue to do so!

I found my dress on accident at Aria Bridal, and by the time I was ready to order it, the designer had discontinued it. When I called the store, they told me they would try to find me an extra one that hadn't been sold yet. They found my dress in the exact size and color I wanted and the alterations were perfect! Everyone was so easy going and it made the experience that much better.

I LOVE Abby!!!! I went to this shop originally because they were having a trunk show for my favorite designer, Maggie Sottero. I had such a fun time picking out dresses with Abby. I went in with an idea of what I thought I wanted and was surprised to find that there was a much better dress waiting for me. Just as our appointment was winding down, I asked Abby to pick out a dress for me that she would have picked had I not come in with any ideas. And that was it... she brought me my Geneva gown! It was sooooo me! Lacey and elegant, but with details that fit my personality perfectly! After that wonderful experience I went to Aria Bridal to find my bridesmaid dress for my cousins wedding, and again, they did not disappoint! All of my fittings and appointments at this shop have been very good experiences. I would definitely recommend this shop and Abby to anyone!

I had a great experience with Aria Bridal. My wedding dress is gorgeous and I got so many compliments on our wedding day. The selection is good - it does not feel cookie-cutter like David's Bridal does and many of the fabrics feel nicer. The service was great here from the day I first came in to browse until the final fitting. I always received personal service - the staff remembered me when I came in and treated me as an individual rather than an appointment they wished was over already (how I felt at David's).

Abby is so much fun to work with - she did an excellent job on my alterations. She even helped with suggestions for my jewelry and hairstyle, which I gladly accepted because she has great style. My family and I loved working with Abby.

My bridesmaids got their dresses from David's because they were located all over the country, but I wish they could have gotten them with Aria. My sister had her David's dress altered by Abby at Aria and her alterations looked fabulous. Abby honestly transformed a mediocre dress from David's into a dazzling fit for my sister. My bridesmaids who got their alterations done at David's were not as pleased and said that the alterations specialists at David's made no suggestions for how to make the dress fit their individual shapes. Abby knows fashion and alterations and it shows through her work. Thank you, Abby and everyone else at Aria Bridal!

WOW! Aria Bridal was an absolutely fantastic experience!! I had gone to Aria all through high school for my prom dresses and loved it, so I decided to re-visit for my wedding gown. I went on a Friday night with 2 girlfriends and was cheerfully greeted by Brittany, the best dress-picker-outer-helper ever!!! Brittany was soooo great and helpful! She let me try on a bazillion dresses and the few I had narrowed it down to a bazillion times...and I think I went in to try on my dress on 3 different days...a girl has gotta be sure! :) She was always so sweet and helpful. She actually suggested a gorgeous diamond belt to use instead of the flower one it came with, that I ended up using and it absolutely made the dress. I think the most compliments I got on anything was my dress...and it could not have been more perfect. I also used Aria for my alterations. They turned out fantastic! I turned a straight-edge topped Maggie Soterro into a sweetheart neckline so it would be my perfect dress. Abby did a stunning job. It looked so perfect and like it was made that way. Abby was also so sweet and genuinely excited for me, I loved her! The owner is amazing as well. Aria has a huge selection of dresses and great prices (my dress was much more expensive at the other store I saw it in). Definitely make Aria a stop on your wedding dress journey- they are fantastic!

Aria bridal was so great to work with! Everyone there is really nice and helpful. I went in there not expecting to purchase, but Abby (who is amazing) pulled a few dresses she thought I would like. I chose a dress that was not a style I was looking for, but I loved it looked and felt great on. My bridesmaids also purchased their dresses there. I loved that the dresses were not the typical looking bridesmaid dresses you would get at David's Bridal or Alfred Angelo. I've been to so many wedding and have seen the same bridesmaid dress over and over again, but in different colors!

I would recommend Aria bridal, they were such a joy to work with and I already miss the ladies there!

I came to Aria bridal with an open mind since a few of my friends had already gotten their wedding gowns here. I worked with Abbey she made all my frustrations go away. I bought a dress online and it was the worse outcome possible I the quality of work was horrible fabric looked like a windbreaker jacket from the 90's and the beading looked like it was done by a 6 year old. I told Abbey this was going to be the second dress I was going to buy so I couldnt afford a thousand dollar wedding gown so she found me something in my price range. she never tried to talk me into something I couldnt afford finding the perfect fit was so fun and easy. Now I see why all my girlfriends kept telling me go see Abbey.

I drove from the San Francisco Bay to buy a dress from Aria Bridal. They had the best selection of wedding gowns and designers. When I walked in I was greeted by Abby who was so helpful and sweet. I gave them my budget and my very long “wants” list and it was as though they knew I was coming b/c they pulled so many dresses. Abby helped me through about 35 dresses without a single complaint. Then when I brought my mother-in law back without an appointment Abby took the time to allow me to try on a few dresses for her that I was debating about. My dress was in my budget from the designer I wanted and came in a week early. Everyone was so helpful and so supportive and kind. I could not have been more pleased
