What a cute shop. A hidden SF gem! I've noticed the sign in the window while walking to my dentist a few times, this time, I decided I wanted to see what it was. I called the number on the website and got Julie. She wasn't at the store, but even though they are by appt only, when I told her I was next door she told me her assistant may be there and I was welcome to just drop by. NOTE: it was 5pm on a Friday, she could have easily said "sorry, call for an appointment."

The shop is adorable, not tons of selection, but great for consignment. The girl at the store was AMAZING. I just wanted to look at veils since I already had my dress. She was really helpful and let me look around and try lots of stuff. I ended up buying from them bc I found a hairpiece that I loved! It was a little pricey for consignment, but go figure... It's San Francisco... It's for a wedding... You do the math. They did try to sell me an $85 birdcage in addition to the $75 hair clip... I walked right down to Britex and got a yard of Russian tulle and a hair comb for less than $10.

All in all.. I'm a happy bride!

I purchased a Sarah Seven bridal gown from Encore Bridal and couldn't be more pleased! The dress is absolutely beautiful--very unique and "Anthropologie." The dress was two sizes too big, but my seamstress was able to alter it (though the alterations were very expensive!). If you are looking for a couture dress but don't want to pay couture prices, I highly recommend Encore Bridal. Julie is very professional and takes the time to make sure her clients find "the" dress and are comfortable with the process.

My wedding dress (Jenny Lee 610), my veil (ballet length, ivory), and my garter (ivory with a tiffany blue accent ribbon) all came from Encore Bridal. If it came in my size and style and could be ordered through Encore Bridal, I did it! This store made my wedding dress dreams come true in a way that was better than I could EVER have imagined. I wanted a Jenny Lee dress, but that was significantly out of my price range. I found one on Encore Bridal that was in incredible condition, ordered it, and never looked back. The owner wrote me a hand-written note thanking me for my purchase and called a few days after delivery to make sure that things worked out. Incredible designer dresses at incredible prices, impeccable customer service, and a portion of the proceeds going to a good cause (Cervical Cancer Research). Is there anything better?

Encore Bridal is the South Bay's best resource for brides. Julie offers great guidance to make sure all of your bridal needs are taken care of. Julie helped me get the perfect veil...twice (I had trouble with my veil that was actually not the fault of Julie or the manufacturer, but she made sure to get me a new flawless veil) She also made sure I used the best seamstress (Coco..who is the best), and had my dress properly cleaned and preserved. Julie spent a significant amount of time on the phone with me on several occassions offering her expertise and guidance.

For all future bride's make Encore Bridal your first stop. They have everything from gowns to shoes and every accessory you could ever need. Julie will make sure you are working with the best service providers and all of your wedding needs are met. Many thanks to Julie and Rachel!!

I LOVED how fast Julie was able to narrow down the styles of gowns to fit me perfectly. She is excellent at determining which gown flatters the lady, rather than flattering itself. In three dresses, we had found the perfect one. I felt like Grace Kelly when looking in her mirror. (A girl at David's Bridal tried on no less than 30 gowns and narrowed it down to 13 - I would have preferred to die than be her... or her sales lady!)

Julie had it priced so that I could bring home a couture dress that I know I would have never been able to afford anywhere else. The quality was unrivaled by anything I found in any high-end store in Pasadena. Both the seamstress and the photographer were taken aback by the richness of the fabric. Everyone at my wedding remarked how "perfect" the gown was on me. I truly did feel like Princess Grace.

I admit, I dreaded going dress shopping, but Julie at Encore Bridal made it easy, organized and manageable. She opened the shop on a weekend especially for me, and connected me with an amazing seamstress that was able to let the small bodice out to fit me. Julie and I also had a lot of fun! She has an excellent eye for selecting styles and quality. You may just find your perfect dress hiding in her store!

Wow! What a find! I was able to purchase a designer dress that had never been worn for nearly 1/2 the original price. It's easy... you can browse on the internet, then go to the boutique and try on the dresses. Julie and her staff were very professional, and Julie spent the time with me to find the perfect dress! In fact, we found it on a whim within minutes of me arriving. Julie showed me that the dresses I'd liked online weren't as flattering on my figure. In fact, her suggestions were perfect! She even worked with me so that I could show my mom/friends the dress before purchasing it. I absolutely love my dress... and I highly reccommend using Encore bridal.

I went to a sample sale in San Diego and tried on a handful of dresses. I feel so lucky to have found my dress in a SIZE 12!!! BUT I am a SIZE 0!!! Not to worry, I was guided to the best alteration lady in Redondo Beach (Coco’s Alteration) by Julie from Encore Bridal. My Anne Barge dress was made from an A-line to a Mermaid fit.

I was so happy with the over all service from Encore Bridal. I couldn’t decide between 2 dresses and Julie helped me decide. When it came to my veil she also helped me decide on a style and length. The best thing about the whole experience is that I bought my dress for less ½ of the original price! Thank you Encore for everything!
