I was so happy with my experience here. My first dress appointment was here just to try on dresses. My consultant was Janice and I was very happy with the service that was provided. Janice asked me what my budget was, and took me to a room where dresses did not exceed that amount. (There was SO much to choose from!)

From there, I was allowed to choose as many styles to try on as I wanted and Janice brought in some suggestions as well based on my feedback. On my first appointment, I must have tried on at least 10 dresses or more!

I came back a second time with my mother. I was assigned Janice again, which I was ecstatic about! She brought back the top two dresses I liked from last time as well as new styles I chose and she chose. I ended up falling in love with a ballgown! During both of my appointments, Janice tried accessories on me as well as turned down the lights to show how my dress would look like in bright and dim lighting.

Please consider Gesinee's for your bridal gown search. The service provided was beyond excellent. Looking forward to my first fitting.

After a less than stellar experience at David's Bridal, I tried out a smaller boutique. In my mind I thought small boutiques, albeit nicer, would have less selection and higher prices. This is not the case with Gesinee's. What I love most about this place is the variety of HIGH QUALITY dresses all within a FANTASTIC price. I cannot stress this enough. I thought David's Bridal was the place to find cheaper dresses. Not only did they not have as much selection as I thought for cheaper dresses, but the dresses were just that . . . CHEAP! They looked like bad prom dresses. At Gesinee's, I was able to get exactly the dress I wanted, the highest quality of the fabric I wanted, for even cheaper than my expected price!

Of course, not only do I want to rave about the selection, price, and quality, but just the experience as a whole. You have a personal assistant just to yourself (ahem DB) who actually listens to what you want and can really sense your needs and wants all within staying in your budget. The place to try on the bridal dresses is separate from the rest of the store which makes it quieter and more private (plus it's super cute!).

I haven't had my alterations done yet, so I will update after that. But my dress came in months before it was expected! What a nice surprise. I can rest easy knowing that. Definitely come here for your bridal dress!

Gesinee's has helpful, sweet, knowledgeable salespeople. On my initial shopping visit, first visit back to try on my gown, and when we shopped for bridesmaids dresses, I felt that I was getting personal attention, made to feel comfortable, had plenty of space for me and my mom and friends to browse through and try on styles.
The ladies provided helpful suggestions, but were also good listeners and followed our lead when we explained what styles we were interested in. They have communicated well with me to follow up and let me know when the gown arrived, etc.

I had great experiences coming here while trying to find my wedding gown. They have a huge selection (old and new). I stuck with my sales girl, Joan, the whole time because of her excellence in service. She went above and beyond in suggesting styles, changing the lights for faux pictures, grabbing shoes, etc! Great prices for similar styles and they work with your budget.

I went to Gesinee's bridal looking for my wedding dress.
I had an idea of what I wanted, and Janice respected that. Allowing me and my entourage to pick dresses that fit that look. Once we couldn't find anything I turned to Janice to see if she could pick some things that she thought would work.

Janice was AMAZING! She was so great at listening to feedback, patient and fun. She helped me find the perfect dress. She is one of the main reasons I went back there after I was unsure after my first appointment. I am so happy and so excited to wear my dress on my wedding day.

This review is for Janice. I came in for a 10:00 AM appointment just to check the place out, not knowing if I was going to find a dress or not. Right when we walked in we were greeted by everyone and Janice was super energetic which made me excited to begin my quest for a dress. We began looking and I narrowed it down to what looked good on me and what didn't. I didn't know that there was a section upstairs that was all all dresses at thousand dollars and under. Being that I'm on a budget for my wedding I told Janice that I would like to check those ones out. I took a peek around for myself and I found one that I insisted on trying On. Immediately I came to tears! I knew it was the dress!

As for the pros for this place: The staff is amazing. They have a ton of dresses to look at, over 3000. It was a comfortable place and I didn't feel pushed. Picking your dress is a huge decision and even after I needed some time to myself and they definitely gave me space to think about it.

As for the cons: The dressing rooms could be nicer. The lighting around the store is dull (but they do have Nice lighting when trying on), Also the store is a little old it could use some updating... But who cares about all that when they have beautiful dresses in beautiful employees!!

I loved my experience! Jennifer was so kind, patient, honest and sensitive. She let me pick my own dresses and pulled things she thought I would like. She made conversation that helped me feel comfortable. As a plus size bride, I felt more beautiful than I ever have and it was all thanks to jennifer. She cared for me, didn't rush me and wanted to make it the most special experience.

The alterations department worked so hard to make sure that every last detail was perfect, helped calm me down when something needed to be changed, and really made my vision come to life! They turned a plain, satin dress into the custom lace dress of my dreams! Chuy did wonderful work and the manager also worked on my dress and they both made my dress perfect!

Staff was Friendly and kind. They Took my budget & style into mind and helped me find my Dream gown.

Alterations department was great, my dress came in three week before my wedding and they did not waste anytime. I had it home one week prior to my wedding.

I Love Gesinee's !!! I bought my junior and senior prom dresses over 10 & 9 years ago and now my wedding Gown.

I'm already looking for reason to go back and buy a Gorgeous gown. I Would shop here again & I Recommend anyone in the area or looking to check them out.

I had looked at a couple of small bridal stores and hadn't found what I was looking for. I went to Gesinee's on a recommendation from a friend. They have a large variety and many of the dresses weren't my style but I ended up buying my dress there and I couldn't have been happier. I also thought for how beautiful the dress was we got a great a deal (under $1000). Frances helped us and she was fantastic! I didn't get my alterations there, so I cannot comment on that.

the bridesmaid dresses..... lets just say don't go there we had more issues then i thought possible it was not worth it.

I found the seamstresses, Irene and Aurora to be so helpful. They made all the differences in my experience. They listened to what I wanted and worked hard to accommodate me. They were genuine about wanting to do whatever to make me happy.

I was not happy about the manager of the store; I had problems with the size ordered and expressed how unhappy I was that she ordered a huge dress for me. She did not investigate then follow through and get back to me.

It truly was Irene and Aurora that made me satisfied and made sure I did not take the dress until I was 100% satisfied.

Gesinee's took very good care of me. They made picking out my bridal gown a delightful experience. They guided me to the perfect gown, even though it was not what I thought I wanted. They helped me understand I was wrong and put me in the perfect dress :) And their selection was absolutely amazing! They also helped us find perfect bridesmaid dresses and a fabulous mother of the bride dress, they did all our alterations, and they handled every challenge I threw at them. I would definitely recommend Gesinee's.

I tried on about 29 dresses before I found my dress here at Gesinee's Bridal. Robin was my bridal consultant and she was so nice to work with. Some of the reviews for this place on another review site aren't so great and I simply don't know why. I not only found my dress here but I found my bridesmaid dresses here too and ppl are still telling me to this day that my dress was the most beautiful dress they had ever seen and my bridesmaids looked absolutely stunning. Give this place a chance, go in with an open mind knowing that you might not find something right away. I wanted to check out other places too but I ultimately came back to Gesinee's. Be sure to ask for Robin. I gave her gift and she said in all her time working there no client has ever given her a gift. You have to remember this is the person that is with you in the dressing room helping you try on 20+ dresses!

SHOP:
My consultant was Vanessa and she was AWESOME!! She first asked what my budget was and made sure she did not show me any dresses outside of that budget. She was very knowledgeable of the products and very accommodating to my needs (bride) as well as my family.
The only problem I had with the shop is that they measure your bust, waist, and hips to determine the size dress to order. I'm usually a size 8 and I had to order a size 14! There are NO refunds or exchanges at this shop. Thus, after losing 25 pounds I obviously had to majorly alter my dress.
I also ordered my veil there which I regret. I paid way too much for it.

ALTERATIONS:
Something I did NOT know was that the Alteration Department is completely seperate from the shop. Service wise, they were "ok." The only problem I had was that my dress was NOT ready for pick up. Luckily I scheduled my dress to be picked up 4 days prior to the wedding. If it had been the day before, I would have been screwed. I did not recieve a call confirming my appointment nor informing me that my dress was not ready. Also, the price for alteration was outrageous. I only went with them because of their experiences with wedding dresses and I did not know where else to go.

Overall, so-so expereience. Future brides...go with caution.

My experience with Gesinee's Bridal was everything I hoped it would be. Jennifer was my consultant and she was amazing! I had brought 6 people with me and we were all treated like VIPS! Jennifer had my style down by the 10th dress which turned out to be The One! I love it, and I would wear it everyday if I could.
The alterations department was just as awesome. I had three appointments with them and each time it was a great experience. One appointment I was by myself and the ladies there fussed over me like I was one of their own, it was great :)

I liked Gesinee's very much. When I went for my appointment to look for my dress, our consultant (who was new and a bit shy) did a great job of pulling dresses that were similar to the styles that I said I liked. She also brought me some styles that were a little bit different to see if those were designs that I might like. I thought she was very receptive to my wants and thoughts. I had a slight alteration for my dress for the designer (there was a part of the dress that I did not want the designer to sew on the dress) and Gesinee's made sure that it was not included. The part I was most impressed with was their alteration department. While somewhat expensive, the ladies at alterations are very knowledgable and pinned my dress quickly, but just the way I wanted it. They know what they are doing!! All in all, I would go to Gesinee's again if I had to do it all over again.

I have only given them 3 stars based on their service and prices for alterations. My dress was amazing and affordable, it was made by Casablanca and I am still in love with my dress, wish there was a reason to wear it again. But the alterations were almost as half the cost of my dress, this was quite shocking and disappointing. We of course still had it altered, but very pricey in my opinion.

Gesinee Bridal was actually the second bridal store that I visited. The first bridal store, which was located in Campbell, CA and about 15 miles from my home, the sales rep had no clue about bridal dresses, unprofessional, and didn't have any customer service skills.

I was extremely happy and thankful to have found my wedding dress at Gesinee Bridal. Irene was the sales rep that assisted me and my mom. She is so nice, professional, has great excellent customer service, and knows her job well.

Even though Gesinee Bridal is located in Concord, CA (about an hour away from my home), my mom and I were willing to drive the distance becuase of the excellent service we received from Irene and the rest of the staff.

Not only did we purchase my dress, but we also found my mom's beautiful Mother of the Bride dress!

Overall, we were wary of the bad reviews we had read about Gesinee's but they had a dress that I loved so we bought it from them. The alterations went very smoothly. I worked with Barbara from start to finish- she runs the alterations department but I was lucky enough to meet with her the first time I went in to look at dresses. She was not pushy and gave me the privacy I needed when changing. She was super nice and the groom's mom liked her so much that she bought her dress there too. I can't vouch for any other employees but Barbara was great. If you go, definitely request her.

The first time I visited Gesinee's was to purchase my wedding gown. I had a wonderful consultant, Elena and a fantastic experience! I was extatic about my gown and so happy I had gone to Gesinees. I purchased my gown and even received a thank you from Elena for buying my gown there. I was so pleased with the service I was provided with however, every other trip after I had purchased my gown wasn't quite as pleasant. Several months later I went back to Gesinee's to look for gowns for my mother and grandmother. I was so surprised by the poor service we received...this time we were matched with a different consultant. I felt like she wasn't really wanting to help us and wasn't listening to what we were saying we were looking for. She kept pulling gowns way out of our price range and got upset when we asked her to clip the back of the gowns (her job). This was neccessary as all of the gowns were around a size 14 and my mom and gradmother are both very pettite women. My grandmother purchased a long evening gown at a very reasonable price, but my mom found her dress at David's Bridal in Pinnole.

The one thing that really upset me was when I went in to order a swatch of my bridal gown so that I could make sure my shoes were the right color. I went in and paid my $5.00 for the swatch. They let me know that it would take about 4-6 weeks, which was still plenty of time before the wedding. My credit card had been billed immediately, but after 8 weeks there was still not fabric. When I called the lady told me that I had already called about the swatch and that they would let me know when it came in. I told her I had never called about the swatch and she continued to tell me that I had. Very frustrated I hung up and waited for a call from them telling me when the swatch arrived. Three months after my wedding date, I decided I would call about the swatch that had still yet to show up! When I called the lady said, "Oh do you still want it?" I said yes, I did pay for it. She said she would call me back. When she called me back she told me they no longer made swatches out ofthat material. Needless to say she did credit my account the $5.00 I originally paid.

Overall Gesinee's is a great place if you get a good consultant! They provide brides with a huge selection of gowns within all budgets! Good luck!

They never showed me anything above my price range or that was in a style I didn't want to try. They were extremely helpful in ordering my dress and veil and great turn around time.

I was kept informed every month on the status of my dress order - it was a rush cut. The dress needed significant alterations because I am only 4'7" and use a powered wheelchair for mobility. Gesinee's alterations department were amazing. They worked with me at each fitting and offered creative solutions to make my dress the most beautiful and awesome bridal gown.

I had heard horror stories and was worried about coming to Gesinee's Bridal - but I am glad I went anyway. I was not charged for anything frivolous or over the top charges: I did not pay to try on dresses, i did not pay to have my dress pressed and ready for pick up and I did not pay to store the dress there. I visited the store twice and tried on a lot of dresses and my salesperson was wonderfully patient carrying dresses back and forth and giving suggestion and doing whatever I asked. The second time I went back, I had a much better idea of what I wanted and they helped me find the dress. As a matter of fact, they didn't have the exact dress, they had a *slightly* different version that was $400 cheaper - totally worth it!!!

When it came time to decide the size of my dress... first I got lucky because I tried on my size (in regular clothes I am anywhere from an 8 to 12, but with the gown I was a size 14 - a perfect fit. I don't understand how the numbers work, but I know they are different than regular clothing). Second, they showed me a size of recommended sizes per body shape/weight/height and ultimately it was my decision (they did not force *anything*).

When I went for my fitting, I was worried that the seamstresses would try to tell me what to do: not in the least. I insisted that all I wanted was to add a "bustle" - i did not want to hem the dress (I wanted to wear heels that were high enough - big mistake on my part). The point is, everyone at Gesinee's was very professional and they listened to what I wanted and did not force anything down my throat. I *highly* recommend this Bridal shop. In addition, if you don't want overly expensive gowns, SAY SO when you walk in and they will take you straight to the second floor. Lots of dresses around $1000. THANK YOU GESINEE's (by the way, I got married Dec 30, 07 - so I am writing as a 100% satisfied costumer, a month after the wedding)

The only complaint would be the inconsistent quality of service. The lady that helped me choose my dress was great! But, our experience when we went dress shopping for my mom was not as good. Overall, their selection is pretty good and the prices are decent.

I had a wonderful experience with the people at Gesinees. Irene worked with me from the day we found my dress and for the next 11 months. She was a delight to work with. They have a great variety of dresses for all of the wedding party...wedding gowns from couture to casual, bridesmaids dresses of all kinds and also a surprisingly great collection of mother of the bride dresses. My only complaint is that they were a bit disorganized when it came to keeping track of our orders. They were having computer issuse which at times made communication difficult.

I had a wonderful experience with the people at Gesinees. Irene worked with me from the day we found my dress and for the next 11 months. She was a delight to work with. They have a great variety of dresses for all of the wedding party...wedding gowns from couture to casual, bridesmaids dresses of all kinds and also a surprisingly great collection of mother of the bride dresses. My only complaint is that they were a bit disorganized when it came to keeping track of our orders. They were having computer issuse which at times made communication difficult. But all in all I had a good experience there. Read less

Shopping for a dress was the least exciting thing for me, unusually as a bride. But they made the experience easy and had so many dresses to choose from. They were very accomodating to my family who had come along on the appointment. The alterations staff were a little quirky but did great work. My dress fit amazingly.

I bought my dress and had alternations with Gesinee's.

Shop:

Elizabeth was my consultant. I came in with an idea of what I wanted and she managed to work with my budget and idea. I believe I was in a room specifically for "Under $1000". She even asked ahead of time if it was okay that she helped me dress (you should really go down to your underwear for this kind of dress fitting... she helped me get into the bustier).

The store policy is no pictures in dresses until after you agree to buy, which is pretty common in other stores I went into. The manager that measured me didn't seem too friendly, but when I returned for my dress inspection/pick-up, she was sweet as can be.

From what I understand, you can either pay in full or initially 75%... but I think 75% requires tax. Be sure to clarify that with your consultant first.

I received a call for my initial fitting and it went just as I expected. My dress was huge, because I had to go a few sizes up (I have the a plus-size bust and average waist). I finished paying the rest of the dress.

Alterations:

The alterations shop is directly across the street from the dress shop. I was told to give 4-8 weeks for alternations. I called to make an appointment; they told me that they would have the dress waiting for me there and I didn't have to bring it over.

Tsui was in charge of my alternations and she was fantastic. She gave me an estimate as soon as I asked, and allowed the payments to be divided in 2 installments. In the first appointment, she took the dress in everywhere and hemmed the dress.

During my second appointment, the fit and length were perfect. She then measured the bustle and asked to come back in an hour so she could sew it in. I came back after a few errands, and she taught my Maid of Honor how to bustle my dress. I paid the second half and I left the dress there after the second day for bead tightening and steaming.

By the third day, I just came to pick up the dress; no fuss.

The dress needed to be taken in, hemmed, and bustled for $400 (most of my dress was multiple layers of organza). Total alteration time was 4 weeks.

Overall, my experience was very good.

I loved my experience at Gesinee's! Everyone was so helpful and made me feel special. When I found THE dress they let me walk around the store and stay in it for 40 min bc I didn't want to take it off and wanted to make sure it was really the one! haha. The alterations ladies were really sweet and knew exactly what needed or didn't need to be done to the dress to perfectly fit my body. The dresses are such a good deal too. My Couture dress could have easily been over $6k somewhere else, but I got it for less than $2k. I know plenty of brides who recommend this place!
