I have gone through the house of fashion twice. The first time was for a ball gown an I loved their service and selection sooo much. I knew I would go back for my wedding dress. Sure enough when I got engaged in November of 2013 the first place I looked for my dress was the House of Fashion. The staff asked what I was looking for and after a few descriptions of what I thought would fit me they brought me a few dresses to pick from. The very first dress they showed me was PREFECT! They helped me every step of the fittings, shoes, and jewelry. I would recommend them with the highest praise and thanks.

The staff members of House of Fashion were absolutely incredible! I currently live in San Diego and I decided to get my wedding dress up North where my mother and sister/maid of honor live. Since I lived so far from my family and where I wanted to get the dress, I needed to find a place that had several dresses in 1 spot- HOF was just that place! They had 2 floors and huge rooms filled with dresses. There were so many to choose from and the staff was very helpful. Once I found the dress they were very accommodating with my travel and the fact that I needed to have as few fittings as possible.
About 5 months before the wedding I had an accident and wasn't able to fly up for an alteration. The staff was kind enough to schedule an alteration session just a month before the wedding and combine a few appointments into one. Not only did I need to tailor the dress to fit me, but I also wanted to make some major changes to the dress. The seamstress listened to all my requests and my dress couldn't have turned out more gorgeous. My husband LOVED it and I received several compliments. I can't thank the staff enough for all of their help!

While other bridal salons laughed at my $1200 budget, House of Fashion was helpful in finding many options within my budget. The consultant was kind and knowledgeable in helping me select my dress. Their alterations department was also outstanding. They altered my dress, along with a vintage gown my grandmother gave to me to wear at the reception. Would definitely recommend!

We'd give this shop 6 stars on a scale from 0 to 5 if we could. We got married in Sacramento a few weeks ago, and the best man flew into town (from the east cost) Thursday. By Friday evening, his luggage still hadn't arrived and he was in need of a tux for our Saturday morning wedding. We had 90 minutes between the rehearsal and the dinner, so we started calling tux shops to see what we could find. Every shop we called told us they couldn't help on short notice, despite the extenuating circumstances and the fact that the best man is of average size. House of Fashion Bridal Salon was the first place we reached who said they might be able to help us, so we rushed in. We arrived ~15 minutes before they closed, and David was there to assist. We explained the situation and he got to work. He asked some questions and listened attentively as we described what the groom and I were wearing, so he could find a tux that would work for the best man. He brought out pants, jacket, shirt, and shoes that all fit the best man. Then, I showed him a photo (on my phone) of the MOH dress so he could find the vest and tie that would work best. In the end, the best man looked wonderful and no one would ever have known what happened.

Overall, this process took longer than 15 minutes but David never made us feel unwelcome and he never rushed us. He was efficient (he knew we needed to get to the rehearsal dinner) while being very friendly. He also provided the groom with a nice hankerchief to pull everything together. I don't know the going rate of tuxes in Sacramento, but the final price seemed very reasonable to me and less than the price we'd seen for tuxes.

The kicker is that while the best man was being fitted, the three of us (groom, bride, best man) were trying to solve another problem in advance of the morning wedding. David heard us talking and he offered to assist us. He came up with a great solution to the problem (which was completely unrelated to bridal fashion) and offered to help. We did take him up on his offer to help us with something very early the next morning. He was such a genuinely nice and helpful guy that it really eased some of the pre-wedding stress that we were all feeling. I would DEFINITELY recommend this location to anyone looking for excellent service and a good looking tuxedo. They provide service well beyond what you could expect or imagine, even under challenging circumstances.

I got my bridal gown and all my bridesmaid dresses at House of Fashion. The salesperson was very helpful and really understood what I was looking for in a dress and we were able to find the perfect gown in less than an hour! They also did a great job altering my bridesmaid dresses, especially because 2 of my bridesmaids were from out of state and didn't come into town until 2 days before the wedding.

I got my bridal gown and all my bridesmaid dresses at House of Fashion. The salesperson was very helpful and really understood what I was looking for in a dress and we were able to find the perfect gown in less than an hour! They also did a great job altering my bridesmaid dresses, especially because 2 of my bridesmaids were from out of state and didn't come into town until 2 days before the wedding.

The very first time I went dress shopping was at the House of Fashion and I was able to find my dress at the first appointment. The consultant picked it out and it was perfect for my body shape and the venue where I was getting married. I was very pleased with the professionalism and ease of making changes to the dress. I was also able to come in whenever I wanted to try on the dress for friends and family before the wedding. The dress came out beautiful and I was very pleased with my experiance working with the House of Fashion. I would highly recommend this bridal salon to anyone in the Sacramento area.

I had already purchased 2 bridesmaid dresses from House of Fashion, before going there to look for a wedding gown for myself. I worked with Mahin and she was so helpful in pinpointing what style of gown would look best on me. The third dress I tried on was the "one." Mahin made it so easy to find the right dress and stopped by every fitting appointment to make sure the dress was being altered just the way it needed to be. Also, less than a month before the wedding, my mom decided the dress she had chosen at another bridal salon was just not what she wanted it to be after the alterations had been completed. My mom found a dress she liked at House of Fashion and the let her purchase the sample dress & had it altered, cleaned and pressed within 2 weeks...that just goes to show how House of Fashion is willing to put their customers first and will make sure you have everything you need before your wedding day.

I had been to EVERY bridal dress store in the area. This was my last stop before starting to look in SF or Bayarea. When we got there I picked out a ton of dresses to try on. The woman who was helping me said "I have the perfect dress for you". I tried it on and OMG it could not have been more beautiful and fit me PERFECTLY. There prices are reasonable. I had them make my veil and it all came together so beautifully. You should go check them out!

I made several visits to HOF and always had a positive experience. The ladies there were very nice, never pushy and made good suggestions and recommendations of different things to try on within my stated price range. Everyone seemed patient and never tried to push the sale. The ordering of my dresses and the bridesmaids dresses was smooth and everything was timely. Alterations were done well and one of my bridesmaids was comped her alteration due to some manufacturer error that THEY pointed out to us--how nice were they?!

Overall, good selection of dresses for any budget. Very helpful and friendly staff and professional and timely service.

The stairs up to the dressing rooms are a bit daunting, but what bride doesn't need a few extra steps before the wedding? When all was said and done, I ended up with a beautiful gown and veil for a great price.

I have wanted to shop for my wedding dress at this store since I was a little girl, and attended church across the street, so my expectations were very high. But it was a wonderful experience! HOF carries a great selection of plus-size dresses. Mahin was a joy to work with, she made me feel beautiful, but she was also honest with what dress styles didn't work on me, and went and pulled variations of dress styles that did work. The alterations were quick and just what I wanted. The seamstress showed me what the different bustles would look like, and made sure to show my mom when she picked the dress up how to bustle the dress. It didn't work as well at the wedding as I'm sure it did in the shop, but that was no fault of theirs. The customer service was phenomenal, and their prices were not that much more than big-box bridal stores where you don't receive the individualized care and attention like you do at HOF!

This is where I bought my wedding gown and it was a wonderful experience. Laila was the saleswoman who helped me and she was so helpful. I told her what styles had caught my eye and then she brought out a whole range of dresses that could work for me. She didn't pressure me to make a decision that day and instead wrote down my favorite styles and sizes so I could take some time to decide. When I came back a second time she helped me try on my top favorites again and even brought out different veils so I could see the whole picture.

The front desk was flexible with my payment plan as well. I am very pleased with the service I received from everyone, including the salesgroup, the alterations, and the front desk.

If you want to be fawned over this is the place to go. Think of the Pretty Woman shopping scene without the fakeness. I got my shoes, jewelry, and veil here and felt like I was the first lady. Marta helped me try on no less than 14 veils and was patient and honest in her critiques. I like it when they have the guts to say, I don't think that one is as flattering as this, what do you think? I was worried about finding the right shoes since I am a size 11 and she found me the perfect shoes in 2 tries. I have never found shoes that quickly and in my size in my entire life.

Genuine thoughtful service here, a bit spendy but definitely worth it.

They were great to work with and I loved my dress. Too bad I paid $800 for a dress that can be found online for about $600. And too bad their alterations (which turned out awesome) cost me nearly $300 for some strap shortening, heming, and bustling. I had excellent customer service every time I was there though. I totally recommend them. Also, they found me perfect shoes for $50! I was hesitant all the way to buy ANYTHING in a bridal salon, but that's really a decent price for bridal shoes, and only $7 to dye them ivory. Very happy with this vendor.

Everyone at House of Fashion was very helpful, especially Norma. I had my dress altered here and I also bought my veil here. I loved my veil so much, however, I realized on my wedding day that the veil was a slightly different color than my dress in the sunshine. We hadn't noticed this at the store. I think I would recommend to anyone to be sure to go outside and see the two in natural light if you are going to have an outdoor wedding as I did.

I found my dress at House of Fashion. Unfortunately, they were asking too much for the dress I wanted, so I ended up finding the sample online and purchasing it for less. I did however take it back for alterations. I had such a great experience with the helpful staff there, that I really wanted them to do it. I thought it was a little pricey, but then when are alterations not pricey anywhere! And who would take the chance taking it somewhere really cheap like someones- living room! Which I suppose would be fine if you really knew the seamstress and trusted her, however, I wasn't willing to take that chance. Being a seamstress myself, I ended up hemming just the front of my dress to save $190, but after that, I found that their prices on bustling and taking in the dress were very reasonable, and actually cheaper than another bridal salon I went to for a consultation. When it comes down to it, they are professionals and know what they are doing. I am very happy with the results!

I had a really wonderful experience at HOF. I went to miosa and some other bridal salons in the area who were very snobby and unpleasant. Not at house of fashion. I worked with Amara who was great. I gave them an idea of my price range ($1500-3000) and some photos of dresses I saw. They immediately pulled 30 dresses for me to try, most like the photos and afew they thought would look good on me (which they were right) and all were within the price range i gave them. Their staff helped me with all 30+ gowns and even let me take lots of pictures. We found one that was perfect and made me, my bridesmaid and the whole staff actually cry! It was a beautiful fun moment and really special. The store is fun to roam around in too, jsut has a nice vibe. The alterations were pretty reasonable and when some last minute changes needed to be made they did 4 separate rounds of alterations while I waited so I could try it on each time between alterations to make sure it was perfect. THe have a great bridesmaid and mother of bride and bra selection too. I got 5 bridesmaid dresses, 2 MOB dresses there plus my veil and a headclip. THey even sewed in my bra for free, and removed it for free when I changed my mind, and then sewed in loose cups for free when I decided I wanted that at the last minute. In the end the dress held up and fit all night and everyone said it looked like it was made just for my body! It was great! I would go back in an instant, and the next time I need a formal gown for something I am checking them out. Check out some of my photos, tommyphoto.net/blog 12/31/09 Wedding.

Overall I had a good experience here, but I'm not sure if it's because I knew exactly what I wanted. I had to go through three fittings, and wasn't happy at first with my seamstress, who insisted I had to have a french bussel, which I didn't want. After the manager came in and showed her how she could do it, I got what I wanted and was happy with the dress overall.

It was the 1st salon I looked at, and after checking out other salons in Sacramento and San Francisco, I went back to find the perfect dress! I had some trouble communicating with the seamstress what I wanted done with the length and it caused us to have to come in multiple times to get it right, but they were very nice each time and the dress turned out wonderful.

I loved my dress and the consultants that helped me were so sweet and made my buying experience wonderful. But they did take 3 months longer to get my dress than they said it would and I had to call them several times to get a status on where it was. In the end I got it a month before the wedding and since they're quick with alterations it was more than fine. The alterations dept did very nice work but the lady seemed a little put out when I wanted it altered and I always felt a little rushed when I went in there. All in all though the place provides beautiful dresses!

I am not your average bride. I have a J.Lo type of body frame which gave me grief while searching for a dress in over 10 different stores from Sac to the bay. I finally decided to go through HOF whole inventory, literally every single dress, till I found the one. I loved my sales person Mahim. She understood my style and personality and stuck with me though the whole process even 8 months down the road in alterations. Alterations we done well and quickly and some of the helps had fabulous inside tips. But that's just it, only some of the assistants enjoy their job others act like you are annoying them. Also, keep a watchful eye on their billing system during alterations. It is a hand written mess and it is very easy to miscalculate costing more money. Overall, I still recommend checking them out.

They did a wonderful job on my alterations, however there was a broach that came with my dress, and they had taken it off to do the alterations which was fine. But when I went to pick the dress up, they never put the broach back on. Luckily I realized it before I took the dress home. However when they gave me the broach back, I got home and tried to put it back on the dress, and the clasp on the back was broken. So be careful with small details like that!

I bought 2 dress from HOF so they obviously weren't too bad - but if you are expecting a "Say Yes to the Dress" kind of experience you aren't going to receive it there.
The ladies who work there are not always the most pleasant but you can't beat the selection and amount of dresses in every price range (although they don't carry high end designer dresses).
I was satisfied enough after my first purchase to go there again and I would recommend it to my friends/family in the future.

Overall I had a great experience with House of Fashion. It was the first place I went to look for a dress and felt very lucky that I found THE dress in only 45 minutes...! The woman who helped me was a bit pushy but did good at helping me find the right style and did not try to push me out of my budget range which I appreciated. They originally told me the dress would take 3-6 months to arrive (they had to order it), it actually took 7 months to arrive so brides beware! They were a bit on the rude side too when I started to get nervous after waiting 7 months...it did come in and I had plenty of time for alterations to my relief. In the end the alterations turned out perfect but it was only because of one of the help from one of the women that worked at the front desk, NOT the seamstress...the seamstress seemed more concerned about getting my dress altered as quickly as possible rather than altering it to fit me just right...THANK goodness for that very kind woman who helped...with out her two cents I don't think the dress would have turned out as nice as it did help me...In the end I Absolutely LOVED my dress!!!! When you leave with your dress they give you a coupon to have your dress cleaned and packaged for storage after the wedding, I went ahead and took them up on the offer - they end up sending your dress back East but so far my experience with that company has been great and my dress has actually been cleaned/packaged and is in the mail on its way back to me...overall, very good experience with this vendor :)

House of Fashion was a mixed bag for me.
I thought they had a great selection of dresses. When I first started shopping for dresses, I LOVED their flexibility and attention to my needs. The staff was very patient and informative when it came to helping me find my dress. When I picked my first dress, and changed my mind after a couple of days - I was relieved when they were accommodating with the cancellation of the order and the second go around of dress try-ons. They took into account my indecision and really helped to guide me in the right direction in selecting a dress. For that alone, I would have given perfect scores.

The alterations and fittings were a little more less satisfactory. Most of the time, I felt like they were trying to take the shortest route. From day one, I was firm about the unflattering ruffling of a part of my dress. They insisted it was simply a matter of pressing it out. Then it just had to be pulled to the side. Then it just had to be nipped a little. Ultimately, they had to undo an entire seam and fix the layering of the extra material - as was suggested initially. As a result, it ended up in 4 additional fittings because they couldn't get it to lay properly.

In terms of value, they have a great range of pricing and a varied selection so I gave more stars for that.

I had read some very negative reviews on House of Fashion and was skeptical when I went in. It was NOT a glamorous boutique but I did find a beautiful dress for a great price. Go in with a perspective of having fun. There are hundreds and hundreds of dresses to look through. Bring a friend who knows your taste and will help you. Also consider going in when it isn't a busy time (Saturday or Sunday). After buying my dress, it had to be shipped to a different state. Great and prompt service.

House of Fashion is a great place to go if you have no idea what you want or what you're looking for. Don't expect a ton of help when you're there (they pretty much let me and my 2 bridesmaids and 2 moms loose in the store for an hour -- we just helped ourselves) but it is a great place to see a lot of color and fabric choices in person.
You can find lower prices at other stores if you know what you want and are willing to shop around for it. But all in all, a great place to start.

HOF did an amazing job with my dress. I looked far and wide for the right one and finally found it here. They did such a good job helping me with all the arrangements and the alterations were excellent. The dress fit me like a glove like they promised it would. I would.have liked a little more responsiveness when my dress arrived over a month after it was promised. In the end it was dealt with professionally but it took a while to get any help as it was cutting our time frame very close. Besides this incident, the experience was very pleasant and I love my dress and how I looked in it.

On the day I went into look for my wedding dress, the assistant was very helpful with finding a dress that worked for me that both myself and my parents fell in love with. They were also nice on my first fitting when I came in to try the dress on when it first came in. After that, I got some resistance from them when I wanted my alterations done earlier than what is typically done (my wedding was on the east coast so I was bringing back the dress early but they did not want to do the alterations that early). After my alterations and final fittings were done, when I came to pick up the dress, they gave it to me in pretty much a pink garbage bag, when I asked if that was acceptable to take on the plane without ruining the dress, the attendant just gave me a look like I was crazy and offered me a different garment bag that I could buy off of them...still was a pretty cheaply made bag so I ended up just going to David's Bridal to get a better travel bag for the dress. I must say I absolutely love the dress that I ended up with despite the iffy service they provided.

Also I got a headband from them, then latter looked on line at prices (when trying to send a picture to my parents) and found its retail value was about half of what they sold it to me for...so I would be careful of buying accessories from them...a little on the pricey side.

Make an appointment. I did and when I walked in someone immediately sent to us to start to try on dresses. They made me feel like a princess. I found my dress within the first several tries. They were not very good at the communicating part of how long it would take until the fittings and the phone calls etc. That made me a bit nervous. When I went in for my fitting the glamour was gone. They stuffed you in this tiny room in back with lots of other people doing the same thing and I didn't feel special after that. My dress and accessories were amazing and they have professional seamstresses who helped me with any issues I had about the dress. I couldn't be happier about my dress & veil & garter. The price was a little staggering but sooo worth it.

I got my wedding gown and my bridesmaids' dresses from House of Fashion. I had a great experience with my dress - from start to finish, the people I worked with were very helpful (finding THE dress, shoes, alterations, etc.) and friendly. They made sure that I had everything I needed for the big day, and they worked well with me and my mom.

The bridesmaids' dresses were a different story - they do not have nearly enough space in their store for all of the dresses they have packed in there. Also, there are not enough employees in the bridesmaid's section, and it is very difficult to get help (especially on a weekend). When we had found the dresses we wanted, they took the measurements for 3 of my bridesmaids, and then the sheet with the measurements was lost (and then found again in my file). Because of this, we were delayed in ordering the bridesmaids' dresses and had to have them rush cut. This was a frustrating and stressful experience, but was handled well by House of Fashion - they agreed to pay for the rush cut because of their error.

Overall, House of Fashion was a good experience. However, if you are going to use them, I would recommend staying on top of them - make lots of phone calls to make sure that everything is in order and you are all on the same page.

I found a beautiful dress there and I love the stairs. The day I found my dress went great I had a little older woman with a thick accent help me. They have someone who helps you into the dresses and one that is prepping the next dress. After that has been a struggle. luck for me I had a long engagement. It took over 9 months for my dress to arrive. Everyone I talked to had problems with getting their dresses on time. They never call you to let you know what is going on with your items. Every time I called the staff said that I could only talk to the manager about my questions and the manager was never available. She would eventually call back. For me unless you are walking out with your dress the day of this store is not worth the hassle.

Dress: House of Fashion (grade B) price: dress: $950 alterations: $365 (I had 14 bustle points and was charged $10/bustle point)
I really didn’t have a problem with them until I had to pick up my dress, had an appointment to pick up my dress and it wasn’t ready because they wrote it down as a final fitting instead of a pick-up. But no big deal.
Would I recommend? Yes

I had been to this place for fittings of friends and bridesmaid dresses in the past and was never really impressed with their service but when it came down to buying my gown I knew exactly which maker/dress I wanted I was kinda dissapointed when I learned they were the only ones in town who carried it.
I was living abroad with my then fiance when we decided to have our wedding ceremony for his family there. Ordering the dress was not as much of a hassle as I expected. They were able to accept both the order and the payment over the phone. They weren't, however, able to ship the dress to me abroad so we worked with my mother to get the dress to me in time.
When she picked up the dress she wasn't overly impressed with their service either but was happy that they were able to get it in time for my event. At the time the dress was still in the box from the maker. The staff had her check over the details to make sure there were no problems with the dress(she commented that the details were hard to see through the wrinkles from it having been stuffed into a box). After checking the details the staff said something along the lines of, " okay, we will just get this pressed then..." . My mother told her how she would just be shipping the dress to me and said that a press would probably not be necessary. The staff told her that when I come back to have the second half of my wedding there in California, I could get it pressed free at that time.
Well, when the time came, I got in touch with the House of Fashion and was told by the Manager there that I would have to pay (100 dollars!) to have it pressed, and that nobody put any memo in my file about the pressing. I did not take my dress back to this place, instead I paid much less to have it pressed elsewhere. I am still very disappointed about my experience with this company and will continue to warn people away from their store.
A customer should not feel as though they are inconveniencing the store clerks, nor should a company make promises they are not willing to keep. I was not impressed by HOF.

I will never work with House of Fashion again and will not recommend them to anyone. Bridesmaid dresses: I had 5 of my bridesmaids order their dresses through house of fashion and 3 order them from where they lived since they were out of state. If the girls who lived out of state ordered them from House of Fashion, they could not ship the dresses directly to them. I would have to ship them and pay for it myself. I am pretty sure House of Fashion forgot to put in our order for bridesmaid dresses right away because my girls did not get the dresses until 1 week before my wedding. They ordered them in the beginning of February and did not get them until the beginning of July! The girls who ordered them at the same time from out of state from 3 different shops, received them in May. I had to call to see when the dresses were coming in and they originally told us May. When I called in May, they then told me June. When I called in June, They then told me July. My wedding was mid July! They were nice enough to give us free alterations but never offered it. I had to ask for the free alterations. They never called me to give an update on the dresses and never admitted that they made a mistake. They kept blaming it on the designer even though my other girls ordered it at the same time and got them much earlier. I LOVED my dress but they took forever to get it. Their alterations were expensive so I used someone else. When I asked HOF to press the dress for me, they said they couldn't since I did my alterations elsewhere. Don’t get me wrong, the employees are very nice there but do not know how to run a business. In our business, when you make a mistake, you admit it and offer a way to fix it to make the customer happy. After complaining to many people about this, I have a few friends who have also had bad experiences with them. Sounds like they do not have a good reputation. Hopefully they will start making changes to improve their customer service

I went to House of Fashion because they carried the couture lines I was looking for in a bridal gown.

I found the gown of my dreams! It slowly went a little downhill from there.

I felt nickeled and dimed - I paid a FLAT alteration fee, after which the seamstress kept on trying to jack up the price and ended up refusing to do the work unless I paid extra. I paid, then complained to the manager and received a refund, but it was still an incredible hassle.

I went to my final fitting and found half the alterations hadn't even been done yet. The seamstress said she would do them, and my final fitting was then pushed out a couple days. I came back again, and still there weren't things right with the dress.

It took four "final fittings" right up until the day before my wedding to get it all straightened out. The seamstress was a nightmare to deal with, but in the end my dress looked beautiful and it all worked out.

I just don't know if it was worth the money...

I ended up getting my perfect dress from the house of fashion- but only after i was frustrated and ready to give up looking. We had an appointment and was told that we didn't, was given poor service. I was about to walk out when my furious friend put them straight. THANK GOD! The new person led me to a completely different room and I found THE dress.

My experience at House of Fashion was just okay, I made appointments with them and they were always running a bit late. However, the ladies who worked for house of fashion were very nice and welcoming. I enjoyed the feedback, however, my only concern was that most of the ladies seemed not to listen to the future bride's needs, instead they imposed their own opinions when not asked. However, I found my dress there and it was great, I fell in love with my dress, it was exactly what I was looking for and it was the right price too. I loved the fact that we could make payment plans and makes it easy on a bride who's on a budget. Overall, my experience was great, it had a large selection of dresses and various sizes. The only thing that I don't recommend is going and getting alterations there, the prices are very high for small alterations, find somewhere else do that, especially when your on a budget, you think that you bought your dress under $600 and after alterations you come out spending almost $1300 because the charge for every pin they put on the dress. I don't want to sound negative, because really my experience was great, but I do recommend them if you haven't found a dress!!

My dress was beautiful in the end, but the attendant measured me wrong the first time and my dress did not fit at all. We had to order another gown and they said they would rush the order. They did not rush the order and my dress came only two weeks before my wedding. Horrible service. There is a lot of selection, but the customer services is not worth it.

All I can say is I'm VERY dissapointed with HOF. My dress arrived over one month late. I went to pick up my dress two different times and it was not ready (and I was told it was on the phone)! The first time I was frustrated the alterations were not complete but problems happen. Then I went to pick it up two days before my wedding and it still was not completed. The straps were too big and the dress was too long (after 3 other fittings). To make matters worse they lost the straps to my dress and told me my dress never had straps!! I pulled out my cell phone and showed them pictures of me trying the dress on in their store with straps at my last fitting. I waited in the store for them to complete my dress two days before my wedding! Not to mention they altered my dress so tight I had to stop eatting carbs after my third fitting because the dress was so tight it hurt. I would never recommend this store to anyone. Go dress shopping somewhere else or be prepared for bad service and extra stress.

I went to this bridal shop because I had only heard good things about it, and both my mother-in-law and an aunt had gotten their dresses there 30 years ago. I assumed this was a business that was really established and highly professional. I can't say that that was the case, unfortunately. I found that the dressing room areas were tiny and even though it seemed like I was the only bride-to-be in the whole shop my lady was on a time-crunch. The lady helping me, did end up giving me a great deal on my wedding gown though and was very helpful when it came to the alterations. Five months later, when it was time for my first dress fitting, I met several employees and found that the standard of their customer service is lower than that of David's Bridal! No one seemed to actually care very much about either my dress or my future business. What is seemed like, frankly, was that they thought they were the best bridal salon in town, and could therefore act snooty to their customers. Well, the thing is neither their customer service or overall standard of their bridal salon would ever rate them as the best bridal salon in town. I'm sure of it. So all brides out there, I would recommend you to try House of Fashion II or simply just go to David's Bridal. DB is the clear winner in the battle against House of Fashion, their employees have better manners, are dressed professionally, and simply know what customer service means. I wish I would have choosen differently had I had the choice. It would have spared me from a lot of unnecessary stress during the planning of my wedding.

My experience at HOF was pretty poor from start to finish.

When I went to try on dresses, I told them what I wanted and they brought me dresses that were nowhere close to what I asked for. I eventually ordered a dress through them that I had tried on at a different salon - the reason I ordered through HOF was because they didn't charge me for tax. Looking back, I would have rather paid for the tax rather than go through all the stress that came next.

They told me my dress would arrive 8 weeks before the wedding, and it did not arrive until barely 2 weeks before my wedding. During this time, I kept calling and they couldn't answer my questions.

Once I came for rushed fittings, the ladies ignored me at the counter, taking phone calls or helping other customers. The seamstress forgot about one aspect of the dress I wanted altered and had to rush that, too.

HOF did give me a free veil and discounts for all my trouble, but it was definitely not worth it. If I could do this all over again, I would go somewhere else in a heartbeat.

BRIDE BEWARE! I went here to try on my dress and they were great. However, it was an entirely different story after I ordered my dress. They did not communicate with me, give me updates, and I constantly had to check in to hear anything. I was told 6-8 months from the time I ordered my dress (October 2012), then they pushed it back to late June, and when I called in late June they told me mid-July! I told them this was unacceptable (we had a destination wedding in Yosemite) and I had to nag them to get the dress earlier. They got the dress rushed to me and at least I didn't have any major alterations to do. The owner and manager were not very helpful , and the only reason this place gets a 2 star for quality of service from me is because one of the other employees was sympathetic and had my bustle alterations fee waived.

Best advice- go somewhere else to get your dress.

BUYER BEWARE
I'm having a very negative experience with this establishment. My bridesmaid dresses have not come in as promised by April 2014 and it is now June 2014. My wedding is in July 2014. Employees do not return phone calls. They are unable to answer questions or provide information as to where the dresses are currently. I have very little faith our dresses will arrive in time for my bridesmaids to alter them or even where them at all. If you look on YELP my experience is the same as many, many other brides/bridesmaids experiences. This is not an isolated incident but more of what I would consider a business practice. They do not value customer service or understand what it means to run a respectable business. Buy elsewhere. Don't add the stress of their incompetence to your wedding day.

ATTENTION ALL POTENTIAL CUSTOMERS!! BEWARE OF THIS BUSINESS. PLEASE READ MY FULL LETTER TO THE OWNER ON THEIR FACEBOOK REVIEWS, MY FACEBOOK PAGE (https://www.facebook.com/carina.viarnes), AND YELP.

My maid of honor and bridesmaids purchased their dresses from HOF (as did I), whose seamstresses also did the alterations. My MOH had her final fitting 1 day before the wedding (another issue entirely - the dresses arrived well after the promised delivery date). The day of the wedding the zipper would not function, was completely shredded, and could not be fixed by any of the women in attendance. We had to sew my MOH into her dress and arrived 90 minutes late to my wedding because of this. (Just think, rushed ceremony, no time for photographs, cold food, disgruntled guests, and 90 minutes worth of prepaid reception time wasted). I called the HOF and spoke with Dawn, who had sold us our dresses, the moment this happened and told her that my MOH would be needing a refund. She agreed. The worst part? Dawn's boss refused to refund my MOH's money! They deny any responsibility for their products and have even refused to cooperate with the Better Business Bureau in their attempts to mediate this situation. Do yourself, and me, a favor and BOYCOTT THIS BUSINESS. If you don't want to take my word for it, read the Yelp reviews. They have an incredible amount of 1- and 2- star reviews from unhappy customers. I don't know how they have a 4-star rating here, but don't believe it! Save yourself the trouble and patronize a business that cares about their customers.

This was the worst experience I've ever had. Not only did I spend an entire day at the salon the week of my wedding while they fixed the dress, but they ordered me the wrong size (I think on purpose) so that I would have to pay almost $500 for alterations.

I've heard they've done this to numerous people and if I would have known this before I would not have gone here.

The worst part was that I saw a spot of the seam (that they had taken in) and said it looked loose. They said they would fix it, and in the middle of my reception, my dress split open. No, my dress was not too small, it was actually still too big.

Do not even consider getting your dress here!

The worst part was that I saw a spot of the seam (that they had taken in) and said it looked loose. They said they would fix it, and in the middle of my reception, my dress split open. No, my dress was not too small, it was actually still too big.
