This place is a hidden gem in Pasadena. I was looking at Allure Bridal Gowns and found out this place carried them. I went to two other bigger bridal shops in the area and even though this place isn't very fancy, I had the best experience here and also found they had the best selection. I called them and they were able to get me in for an appointment right away. The girls were extremely helpful and friendly and the first dress I tried on, ended up being my wedding dress! It's a Pronovias dress and I absolutely love it! Laura ended up giving me a great deal on my dress. They also give discounts on alterations if you buy a dress from them. No other shops that I went to offered that deal. I would highly recommend this place and am very happy I bought my dress from here!

I’m so glad to have found this hidden gem in Pasadena. I scheduled three different store fittings and was not satisfied with any of the dresses. My last appointment was with Lori at Bridal and Special Times. I was skeptical because of the experience at the previous stores, but as I tried on the first dress they found for me, it was the “ONE”. I said YES to the dress! Lori listened to what I was looking for and found the dress I was looking for. It was a Pronovias dress with a beautiful sheer back. Lori added beautiful bead work to the back. Also, I found my bridesmaid dresses here too. Bridal and Special Times has a great selection of dresses. Even though this place is no frills, you’ll be guaranteed to find your dress and at a reasonable price. Lori was very helpful during the alteration and fitting process as well. She made sure the dress fit like a glove. I would highly recommend Bridal and Special Times to any future bride or bridesmaid.

After being disappointed in bridal boutiques and shops while searching for my dream dress, I walked into Bridal and Special Times without any high expectations. I knew of this shop because I worked across the st for over a year, and would pass by it every day.
It looks like a small hole in the wall shop, but carries a variety of beautiful designer dresses. Lori is SUPER nice, she listened to MY NEEDS, my wants, and everything I asked for. She did not have the particular dress I was looking for, it was actually being ordered as a sample. But she was nice enough to show me similar styles, never pushed other dresses that I didn't like. She almost had me convinced of another dress, but she saw I had my heart set on the one I asked for. She said she'd call me as soon as it came in. She did. I saw it, loved it, and she gave me a great deal on my dress. Lori works with you, and is realistic. She is never pushy, and very nice. I was worried I was going to have a miserable dress searching experience. She turned it around for me so nicely.

I had a wonderful experience getting my bridal gown at Bridal N Special Times, beginning to end. Lori and the entire staff took great care of me.

First off, let me start my saying I loved RIGHT around the corner from the shop and it was the last place I looked because I had it in my head I would find my dress somewhere like BHLDN. I tried several bigger stores and boutiques but was having a hard time finding what I wanted - unique, beautiful lace detail with a ball gown that wasn't too poofy, and a illusion neckline. I found out this shop has dresses I liked. I ended up finding a beautiful dress by a local designer in Irvine! How awesome! Very unique indeed. And when the price was a little over the budget, Lori gave me a small discount so I could have my perfect dress.

They made some alterations for me to take out some tulle so it was a bit less poofy. And everything was great. I also had a somewhat tight timeline since it took me so long to find a dress, but it came in on time with no problems.

Highly recommend giving this place a shot! They seem small but they really have one do the most beautiful collections I had seen out there - not the same boring styles (sorry!) I was seeing.

Overall I had a good experience here. I ordered my dress from Lori and it arrived a few weeks before the wedding. She was able to adjust the size and add my sash, and the dress turned out beautifully. She was flexible with appointments and was always prompt with replies. Like another user mentioned, this place is no frills, not as fancy as many other bridal stores, but Lori will give you great options for a good value.

Bridal & Special Times is a hidden gem in the wedding industry. On my first visit, Lori listened to my wants and worked with my strict budget. Using her creativity and expertise, Lori helped me create my dream dress from an Allure 2716 (sample dress) with an open back (after alterations). Even after the alterations and additional embellishments, my dress was well within my budget. She was amazingly accommodating, allowing me to meet her on Sundays even though Sundays are not her normal operating days. After purchasing the dress, the alterations took ~3 months to complete (a bit long), but this was due to my limited availability (Sundays only).

I love my dress and it fit perfectly! Bridal & Special Times has a great variety of bridal and bridesmaid dresses and Lori offers great deals and discounts to work with all budgets. I highly recommend this bridal shop!
