I am impressed by their customer service. They selection is amazing and the owner is really nice and accommodating, Arlet really cares about your day and wants you to find THE perfect dress. I drove almost 2 hours and it was completely worth it! For every bride out there you HAVE TO visit them! On top of it all the prices are a lot better than most bridal shops around! I am really happy with my experience. I can not say enough good things about this place!

To give the story behind why I am so impressed: I fell in love with a dress from a newer collection from Kitty Chen and had called several bridal places and they could not get my dress soon enough for my wedding. I called Arlet's bridal almost giving up on the dress and thought I would have to settle for something else. When Arlet picked up the phone she assured me she could get it and I was baffled! I made and appointment to go try it on, and she surprised me with the dress in my size already there!!! If you know how the process works, most dresses take 4-6 months to come in, she was able to get if for me within ONE WEEK! I also made my alterations with them and I will go try it on this week, can't wait! THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH ARLET!!!

Arlet's is where style and service meets price. I did NOT like the experiences I had a 2 different David's bridals and I could not afford a high end boutique, although they do guide you toward flattering styles. At Arlet's they have BEAUTIFUL dresses for a reasonable price (mine was $750, but I tried on some as low as $300) and they treat you well and help you find a dress that's right for you!

From the beginning to the end, Arlet was fabulous! On our first meeting, I told her what I was looking for, she walked away and two minutes later came back with The Dress. It was *exactly* what I wanted! The price was what I expected to pay, and in my opinion was worth every penny. Arlet kept my crazy bridal brain on track and reminded me of payments and fittings, and was forgiving and accommodating when I forgot. She remembers every bride's name as well as what dress they purchased, and she goes out of her way to make each bride feel special. I really can't thank Arlet enough for her patience, positive attitude, attention to detail, and professionalism. If you're looking for a dress - start at Arlet's! You won't be sorry!

My wedding dress was beautiful!! The only thing that I didn't like about them, is that when it came to altering, they didn't do everything I asked so the week before my wedding they had to fix it.. It was in the bust area, it wasn't tight enough, and when I did my final dress fitting, it fit perfect.... but they must have done a not so good job, because after a few dances, I could feel the bust area getting loose, so the stitching must have came out.. (I wasn't doing any super crazy dance moves or anything either...) Nobody noticed, except for me, but I still paid a lot of money for the dress and alterations and it should have been perfect all night long@

Arlet was very friendly and professional. I found my perfect dress with her and her staff's help my first time going dress shopping! We had one little issue with it not being altered enough since I'm so short, but in the end it worked out and the dress was beautiful!

I absolutely LOVE this place! Arlet Bridal Couture is amazing. My sister also got her wedding dress here 3 years ago. I tried David's Bridal first & they did NOT have anything. Arlet Bridal had a wonderful selection, ALL of their dresses were just stunning. They are family owned & operated and all of the girls were so sweet & helpful. They were flexible with my 3 week wedding date & had everything altered perfect & in plenty of time. My dress was perfect! The girl who helped me picked out my dress & we knew it was the one from the moment I put in on. And to top it all off, the dress was a great deal! I would recommend this place to everyone! You will love it! :-)

This was my second wedding and I really had no plans for having a spectacular dress. My fiance insisted that he wanted me in traditional white so I figured what the heck, make an appointment and see what style would fit my body type. I tried going to a couple other shops but they refused to give me the time of day.
At Arlet, they were great. They asked me what i was looking for, since I wasn't sure, they just let me wander around until we found a few. I tried on the dresses and liked a little of this and a little of that but nothing stood out. Finally the sweetest and tiny little older lady comes walking out of the back and asked me questions. I told her our plans and the time of year and then she disappears. Next thing I know she comes walking up with a lace dress and says - you try this on. I wasn't sure about it so I hesitated and she was insistant. Try it on. I did and then walked out of the dressing room. It was the dress! Nothing spectacular but it was all me. It was a bit more than I wanted to spend at $500.00 but in the end with a few minor alterations done by a close friend's mom (it was too long) I had the beautiful dress of my dreams.

Arlet is the sort of dress fairy you see in movies....Bride walks in with 10-12 pics of dresses.
Arlet has them ALL.
You like NONE.
Arlet picks for you....you fall in love. I bought my dress from her and it was extremely painless. She really knows her stuff. Her Mother works there with her and they are very honest but helpful.
Definately recommend Arlet Bridal!!!

I found my dream dress at Arlet Bridal. I called around a few other stores and the dress about the same price in all of them with Arlet being lowest by about $50. I ordered my dress in November and it arrived a few months late in June. Apparently Arlet had told the dress maker that my wedding was in July, and thank goodness for that!

I did feel that the communication was rather lacking. Arlet would say that she would call me in two weeks with an update on the status of my dress, and then three weeks later I would be the one calling her.

When it came time to do alterations, I decided to use Arlet, I believe her mother is the store seamstress. I felt that the prices for her services were rather steep. When I was getting the bust measured to be taken in, the seamstress kept pulling it in too tight and I had to keep telling her to loosen it some. When I tried it on again after the alterations, the top was in fact too tight, but I allowed my mother and the seamstress to convince me otherwise, after all I had never worn a wedding dress before. On my wedding night I ended up getting rather sick due to the tightness of the dress top, The whole night I was not able to breathe properly and ended up having to cut the reception short because of it. Also, my bustle broke during dinner when I went to sit in my chair, which is too bad because it was very pretty.

I would definitely purchase my dress from Arlet again. They have a very large selection of competitively priced dresses, but I would go elsewhere for alterations.

Arlet absolutely made my wedding day! I started out my dress hunt in completely the wrong direction. I went everywhere in Orange County that anyone recommended with no luck. Then one day I was on my way home from Palm Springs and noticed some bridal stores off of Tyler on the 91. I pulled off and went into Arlet just to check it out. They had a great selection and sorted them by price which was so nice. I picked out about 6 dresses and made an appointment to try them on. When I came back with my sister I tried on the first dress and hated it. The woman helping me politely said that if I didn't like that dress I wouldn't like anything else I picked out. She said she would be right back. The next thing I knew she slipped a dress over my head. As I turned to the mirror it was the most beautiful dress I have ever seen. And the great thing was that it was in my price range (under $1000)!

The women could not have been nicer. They truly did make me a beautiful bride!

I purchased my dress at Arlet Bridal in Riverside for my wedding in May. Arlet was wonderful and very helpful. She did not pressure me and knew her stock very well. In fact, she picked out the dress that I fell in love with. Arlet was very honest and up front about price points and worked within the budget that I gave her. I have recommended other Brides to her in the past and they all loved working with her to find their dress.
