Purchased a bridesmaid dress and had it altered by the shop since alteration was included in the price. After the alteration I noticed that the seams were stitched unevenly and the edges were not finished and not pressed, thus making the sides pop out. When asked the "seamstress" to complete the job, I was told in a very rude and unprofessional manner that the alteration job was free and they do not provide that type of service. Both the owner and the seamstress were rude and did not even try to make the job look decent. I guess this shop owner does not realize that wedding is a once in a lifetime event when appearance counts the most. If you do not care about the appearance of your precious garment post alteration, then this is the shop for you. However if professionalism, courtesy and craftsmanship matter save yourself stress and headache and go elsewhere, where they will be happy to have your business.

Wow is all i have to really say. as a crazy fashionista that went to 12 bridal boutiques this was the one i chose. i found the dress i wanted which was rivoli by san patrick/ pronovias. i actually tried it on at another boutique but they wanted wayyyy to much and the alteration cost were well over my budget. i proceeded to call a few other places that carried my dress to find the best price. Dolores bridal had the best price, and the cost of regular alterations were included at no additional charge. however i wanted to add a sweet heart neckline to my dress which was a nominal fee. now, at first glance walking into this shop, it is really small compared to alot of places i went to, and very modest. at first i was worried that everything would not work out, it just seemed all too good to be true. but everything went smoothly. my dress came in on time, i did my fittings. they added a belt to my dress for me that i purchased elsewhere at o additional charge. the dress fit like a dream. on my wedding day i got a billion compliments and i made sure to tell everybody where i got the dress. they are very professional and know exactly what they are doing. so do not be fooled by the small modest looking boutique because they made my dream dress come true!!!!!! I recommend Delores 100%.

Dolores Bridal is terrific! It is very small, so you might not find a dress that you found online. However, they have a beautiful selection, and the owner is so helpful. I found my dress on the second shot! The owner complimented me, telling me that I was stunning, and I could tell that she meant it. When I tried the third dress on, the owner told me that the dress was doing "nothing for me," which I loved because then I knew that she really, really meant her compliments for the second dress. She was so knowledgeable and helpful, and I am so excited to wear my dress in March!

I had been to some other shops and they wouldn't let you take any pictures, plus the alterations weren’t included in the very expensive price. That annoyed me because after all, you NEED to see how you look in pictures, and sometimes alterations can be hundreds of dollars! When I went to Dolores, not only did I find the perfect dress (with alterations included!!), I found wonderful women to work with. They were so helpful, honest, and not pushy at all. I went for my fittings, and less than a week before my wedding, my dress was too big. Even though my fittings were over, we called and they said to come right over. They fixed it in minutes, and everything was great. I am so happy to have found a place that is friendly and great service. Thanks!!

I used Dolores Bridal for my bridesmaids dresses. They were great! Everyone I spoke with was always very helpful. They placed the order right away and held the dresses when they came in. (Other shops might delay ordering the dresses which is so not cool.) They ordered a swatch for me and called me when it came in which was so nice. Everyone in the shop took great care of my girls. I was very happy. Thank you!

My dress was absolutely perfect! They helped me pick it out, they include free alterations which is a huge cost saver! They were always very nice on the phone and in person. They only thing I wish I would have known earlier was that alterations are now only during the week whereas they used to do them on the weekends. That made it a little challenging for some of my out of town bridesmaids. It does not say anything about that on the receipt. Other than that they do a great job and the dresses are priced fairly and the seamstress does great work!

Dolores Bridals is where I had my bridesmaids get their dresses from. They had a great deal on the dresses because they included alterations. I had a few issues with them though. First issue was that I had 6 bridesmaids and when 2 of them came individually to get fittings, the called ahead and made appointments and no one in the store when they got there. The times they have posted on their site are EXTREMELY flexible and really are determined when they want to be there or not. Three of my bridesmaids had issues once they got their dresses and were fitted. One was given a specific day to come back to get her dress, when she arrived they could not find her dress and then when it was found, they wanted her to wait for it to be altered when they already had it for 1 WEEK. Another of my bridesmaids went back for her second fitting after alterations and she was told by the owner rudely that it looks like she is getting bigger and she needs to make sure she doesn't gain wait because she will charge her. Lastly, my other bridesmaids got there and they would not take her credit card for the transactions, but when I went with another bridesmaid they took the credit card. They need to figure out their policies and stick with them and also need to stick to their appointment times.

After having done some research on Google, I finally found myself at this pleasant and relaxed boutique. I had previously gone to a number of other bridal shops and malls but was disappointed with the quality of the gowns, and the lack of care and attention given during my visit. This boutique completely over exceeded my expectations! I went in with my sister and tried on a couple of gowns. The dresses at this shop were the lightest in weight and very well constructed compared to all the dresses that I had tried on before at the other shops. I decided to come back with my mo and try on the gowns again and surprisingly Maria, the owner, remembered a number of details that I had mentioned at the previous visit! I definitely recommend this boutique for anyone who appreciates honesty, quality, and great service. If you want the best care and the perfect dress, then Dolores Bridal is an absolute must!

All 5 of my bridesmaids got their dresses from Dolores. I had a small issue with being notified when the dresses had come in (I had to call several times to check on them and they did not call when they had arrived). Everything worked out very well, though. The price of the dress included alterations and was the most reasonable price of any surrounding shop. The alterations were great and nobody had to return a second time. All in all it was a good experience! :)

We were very pleased with both the wedding dress and bridesmaid dresses from Dolores bridal. The staff was pleasant and we liked the non-pushy vibe of pick your own to try on dress style they use in the store. All the dresses arrived exactly as ordered and even problem sizing (more than one bridesmaid was very plus size) was not a problem for them. They did the fittings until the dresses fit just right. I would definitely use again if I needed another formal dress. And the price is unbeatable. Having the alterations included in the price eliminated a lot of hassle and extra cost.

There was no question where I would start looking for my dress-- everyone in my family has started their gown search at Dolores'. I found the dress of my dreams, negotiatied a fair price, and was thrilled to find a gown so quickly. Then came time for the alterations. What a nightmare! To this day their are pictures of me in my gown that make me want to cry because the alterations completely ruined the line of my dress. It was let out in places that fit me properly and when the straps were taken in, it shifted the dress up so it no longer fit in the waist. When I pointed this out, the seamstress said it was probably becuase I had gained weight and I should watch what I eat more carefully. On my wedding day, my mother noticed a tear in the side of my dress (which she smartly did not point out until the next day!) that had certainly not been there before. If I had to do it over again, I would certianly purchase a dress from Dolores' and have it altered elsewhere. The alterations ruined an otherwise perfect dress and shopping experience.
