My hubby proposed at the end of June and we settled on a mid-October wedding date, given me about a short three and a half months to plan our small wedding. Given the condensed timeline, I knew how important it was going to be to find a dress fairly quickly to allow plenty of time for needed alterations! To help with in my search, my mom flew across the country the weekend after our engagement to go dress shopping. I had two appointments scheduled with shops on different sides of town - Divine Designs was the second we visited. We worked directly with Monica, the shop owner. She immediately made us to feel welcome in her space, asked me what sort of dress I had in mind, and then went to work to pull a bunch of styles to try on - in line with what I had told her and a few wild options too. Monica's personality burns bright - she talks and moves quickly. She had me in and out of a number of dresses in a pretty short period of time - I didn't feel rushed as much as that she wanted to ensure I had the chance to see myself in a bunch of different styles. Each time I walked out of the dressing room to see myself in the mirror, I felt as if she were watching me closely for a reaction. As a result, she seemed to pinpoint the top three dresses that had really appealed to me. She cleaned out the dressing room, removing all but those three dresses, which I tried on again. This time, "the one" definitely stood out- a lovely, simply sheath dress by Vera Wang - she allowed me the time to hang out in a bit while I was making my final decision though - it was a pretty big choice to make! Once I had said yes to the dress, she served up champagne for my mother and I, which was a nice touch. To be honest, I paid a bit more for the dress than I had expected to, but it was completely worth it. The fabric was above and beyond that of any other dress I tried on - gorgeously 4 ply silk crepe that hugged my body beautifully!

The owner of this shop is delightful to work with and made finding my dress a fantastic experience. My mom and I had first stopped by Divine Designs a few months before I bought my dress, and that that time we were treated very rudely by a snide sales associate (who I think/hope has since been let go) and given some astronomical price that their dresses "REALLY start it," so we vowed never to go back. A few months later I heard that they were having a sample sale and I decided to give them a very hesitant second try. This time I worked with the shop owner, who treated me wonderfully despite my less than dapper appearance that day (I had just come off a shift at the hospital and did NOT look bridal, to say the least). There I found my absolute dream dress. The quality of all the dresses there was exceptional, far surpassing my other experiences, and I have had no second thoughts about my decision. She made me feel taken care of, which is all any bride can ask for. This is one of the most high end bridal shops in the region, so if you can afford the quality I would recommend going here without hesitation.

Divine Designs is one of the best bridal boutiques on the west coast. They carry the most amazing designers and made me feel amazing in my wedding dress! I loved the customer service, amazing decor and excellent selection. I know wedding photos truly show the quality and craftsmanship of wedding dresses, and I've seen too many cheap gowns ruin wedding photos. I knew I wanted something high-end and well crafted, something I could pass down to my daughter's daughter. I found it with a stunning Anne Barge antique lace dress with cap sleeves and a key-hole back. SO timeless and the tailoring was impeccable. I highly recommend Divine Designs if you want an extraordinary heirloom wedding dress for your big day!

How do I convey into words the absolute best experience any bride could ask for when it comes to looking for a wedding dress? You know how people say Monique Lhuillier is the goddess of wedding gowns? Well, “they’re” absolutely correct.
There are a few important take aways from a Monique Lhuillier experience. Her dresses are absolutely stunning. She creates gowns that feel and look so luxurious! Everything about them is wonderful.
The salon itself is completely fabulous. Very modern and upscale, with private sitting areas for your girlfriends/mom/family to sit and watch you twirl around in the world’s most gorgeous dress ever. I was swooned.
Monica was incredible, she is just this adorable, tiny, bubbly and incredibly talented women. She is someone who was born for this job as you can tell she takes pride in her work and projects that excitement throughout her appointments. Monica has an eye for fashion and knows what will look good on your body type and fit your personality better than you could have ever imagined. No pushing, no nagging, no trying to get the sale in today or anything like that - wonderful, relaxing time! I actually came back, tried the dress on two more time to confirm I was in love, and then filled out the payment info and BAM, done-zo! I already had a dress Vera Wang Gemma, and was considering buying a Monique
The absolutely stunning Monique Lhuillier ‘Candy’ gown from the 2012 Spring collection. The dress has a magnificent beaded embroidered tulle bodice with the most stunning and unique detailing which swirls around the bodice and cascades down the skirt. The dress has a very flattering corset and modified a-line skirt. The dress flatters the waist and includes a grosgrain waist ribbon.
If you have the means, I suggest you check out Divine Design for your wedding gown. The prices are high, but so is the level of service and selection of gowns.
Thank You Monica!

I already had a dress, and was considering buying a Monique I'd seen in San Francisco. I walked in here literally on a whim, about two months before my wedding, tried on an Anne Barge that had been in the window and arrived the day before, and bought it on the spot. Nahid, the seamstress, is also incredible. She had to take the dress in just a bit and it was flawless. I felt like a princess on my wedding day, and I was wearing a dress that no other bride in Portland had :) It was a super unique, gorgeous dress and I was very happy with Divine overall.

This is a wonderful boutique and I got great service. I had tried on dresses prior to going there, which I think is probably a good idea although not essential. The gowns are not out on the floor and the assistants help you based on what you describe, your body type, type of wedding, etc. Then eliminate and choose more from there. The boutique is beautiful, small and very intimate. I worked with Nahid each time and she is incredible. She was so helpful and has been doing this long enough to also give you honest, but kind, feedback on what works best for your body. (Not just the ditzy sales person who says OMG, it's beauuuuuutiful for every single dress)

I also had her do my alterations which she did perfectly. She has been doing alterations so long that it looks like this is how it was originally made! Wearing my dress was a dream and I couldn't have been happier with it!

My only two (very mild) criticisms would be that they can be hard to get into since they are a popular and also small, boutique. And that the prices for both dresses and alterations were a little high. That being said, I still got a dress in my budget and given the quality of my alterations, certainly got what I paid for.

As many brides may already know, and is certainly true for this boutique, start early!! Most of their gowns take 4-6 months to come in (mine I think was from Spain), plus you need time for alterations, etc. so get crackin' early!

Divine Designs has one of the best set ups in terms dressing rooms and mirrors. It is an elegant, spacious environment that really lets you imagine yourself on your wedding day with plenty of room for moms and sisters. Their gowns are not available for customers to browse through. They bring you gowns based on your likes and their experience and expertise in dressing brides, much like the popular TV show, Say Yes to the Dress.

The best part of Divine Designs is Nahid, the alterations tailor. She is AMAZING. She has been doing wedding dress alterations for, I think she said 20 + years and it shows. She is the best. When I went for my fitting, she asked me detailed questions that really made me confident the dress would fit me perfectly. Some of the questions were, "are you on your period and if so, do you normally retain water, what part of your cycle will you be in on your wedding day, when you gain and/or lose weight, where does it come from, do you gain or lose when under stress". She also advised me not to drink alcohol before the wedding as she has seen customers increase up to 4 inches from having a few beers the night before, making them unable to zip the dress all the way up. All great advice! She also created an unconventional way to bustle my dress that kept the integrity of it and made it perfect for the dance floor. She is absolutely FANTASTIC.

At the dress appointment, my dress consultant, Jessica brought me a number of dresses that fit the description of what I wanted. At the end of the fitting, she brought me one that upon first look, I absolutely did NOT like but decided to try it on based on her recommendation. It turned out to be "the one". I would never have picked it on my own and once she put it on me, that was it. I LOVE the dress and it fit my body type to a T.

My only criticism is that the shop has a policy of only letting you try the dress on a total of three times, when you buy it, when you do the fitting, and one more time. For me, it worked out because I tried it when I bought it, I went back and tried it on to pick out accessories, and for the fitting but it made me nervous to discover that I was limited in trying the dress on, especially after making such an investment. Monica is very firm on her policies and will not give you any wiggle room. Make sure you read the contract and love the dress because this is not one of the shops that will negotiate with you on details after you sign.

How can you go wrong with this place - they simply have the best dresses in town. I found my dream dress (Monique Lhuillier platinum collection) at over 50% off - INSANE! I can't thank you guys enough for carrying such fabulous dresses. I got SOOOOO many compliments - and not the 'oh, I really like your dress' standard compliments, but more like 'woah - your dress is freakin' ah-mazing!' Ladies, you just have to go! :)

Divine Designs Bridal Boutique responded with the following comments:

Thank you for your kind review Stephanie. It truly is an extraordinary gown! (I do need to point out that the Monique Lhuillier was a sparkling sample from my boutique - I am unable to discount gowns unless there are purchased as a sample or at a trunk show!) Check out my website under store events to see when Divine Designs next trunk show sale will be!
