My dress was absolutely GORGEOUS and the price was right. The most frustrating thing was the discrepancy in the length of time they told me it was going to take to get my dress and how long it actually took to get my dress. I ordered my dress in Aug last summer and was told the dress would come in January. I did call the next day to change something with the order and was assured it wouldn't affect the dress order. By the end of Jan I hadn't heard anything so I called. I was told production was going to be done on Feb 14th and should have the dress by the middle of March (something about the Chinese New Year, but if something like that was going to change the production of a dress why wasn't that considered in the beginning?). I heard nothing by the end of March, so I called again and was told that it had just come in the day before and could schedule my fitting. They only do fittings Mon Wed and Friday, very inconvenient for someone who has a job outside of the city. Overall, the seamstress was super nice and knowledgable. Hilda was also nice. The alterations and bustle were done quickly and in the end I got my dress with about a month and a half of time before the wedding, but it would've been less stressful if they had been up front about when it would be delivered. They did help me by mentioning in the beginning that the dress could be ordered 3 inches shorter to save on alterations in the end, and when it was still a little too long they had suggested a petticoat instead of taking the dress apart to shorten it, so I appreciated that a lot. I was unhappy with how the top of the dress fell on my chest. They basically told me all they could do was a small stitch to close it a little. I still was not comfortable, and when I took it to the seamers before the wedding she was actually able to put some elastic in the dress and then it fit perfectly. I wish Hilda had tried something like that.

I found the PERFECT dress thanks to Hilda and her team. This was the first place I went to and after several others came back to Hilda and her dresses for "the one" Although I thought the price for alterations were very high, overall I was very satisfied, and the dress was absolutely gorgeous. My husband and I are having a second wedding in Europe so I can wear the dress again.

I loved working with La Boutique Des Brides where I purchased my wedding dress. Excellent selection of dresses--high quality and reasonable priced. I fell in love with my dress after trying on at least 100 other dresses. The staff treat you like you're a princess and don't make you feel insignificant when you tell them your budget (unlike several other wedding dress stores!). I would absolutely recommend this store to anyone!!

Hilda IS La Boutique de Brides and she is wonderful! We had been all over looking for dresses, never finding the right one until we stumbled on La Boutique de Brides. Hilda knows her business well, which says a lot. She has a collection of beautiful wedding gowns, most you don't see in the chain type stores, and her prices are reasonable for the quality of the dress you can find here. I will surely recommend La Boutique de Brides to every future bride I know. They will not be disappointed!

Working with Hilda at La Boutique des Brides was a great experience. It is a very friendly atmosphere, and they are no nonsense when it comes to ordering a gown. They will tell you exactly how much time you will need, and exactly what kind of alterations they will need to do. Everything is laid out for your up front, so there are no surprise costs, etc. They did a beautiful job preparing my gown for the big day. They only had to make a couple minor alterations and steam/press the gown, but what they did came out beautifully. They have a great selection for the small location, and it was just much more low-key than other bridal stores I went to. There was no pressure to make a decision quickly, and on top of that their prices were much more reasonable than what I saw elsewhere. That is the beauty of working with a small family-run business. I highly recommend their store.

No frills shopping, but Hilda was able to find me a dress at half the cost of all the high end boutiques. You won't get the service of those high end boutiques, but you'll get a beautiful couture dress for under 2k. Shocking given my expensive fashionista tastes... .

This store was actually one of my first wedding dress shopping days. So, I of course wanted to shop around. But every time I would find a beautiful expensive designer gown at a fancy boutique, I would go back to see the dress at La Boutique, and it was still my favorite and half the price.

I got so many compliments on how beautiful my dress was. Thanks Hilda!

This is a very small boutique. I got my bridesmaids dresses there (5 of them, by Alfred Angelo). They took a long time to arrive in the store after they were ordered (3-4 months). However, she did give us a good price on them - better than I could find any where else.

my dress was GORGOEUS!! and it didnt' have to cost an arm and a leg. i wanted something simple and light - but with style and flair. i got that in spades in a delicious silk shantung dress designed by Paloma Blanca. the environment of the salon is very un-bridal - and outdated - so don't expect any chi-chi day of gown shopping here! but helga is a gem (if a bit pushy at times) and once i was able to yay and nay a few styles - she nailed the gown and that was that.

alterations seemed high - but given the cost of the dress, i suppose i can't complain!
