I had a wonderful experience at Mon Amie when purchasing my wedding gown. I ended up purchasing my dress during a trunk show and it arrived 10 months later and is absolutely beautiful. The designer was there during the trunk show and I was able to make modifications to the dress. The dresses are expensive, so you should go in with a budget and stick with it.

My mother got her bridal gown from Mon Amie and I was hoping I would too. Brittany was our sales representative and she was amazing. I printed out a Pinterest board that had about 100 different bridal gowns that I adored. She was able to see through that chaos, and my vibber-vabber to find the perfect dress for me (within my budget too!).
At first the alternations were quoted around $500 and in the end there were a little more, but it wasn't enough to go over my budget. And they were able to store my gown (I live in Louisiana and didn't want to transport the gown).
My only complaint is that I had a hard time getting a hold of customer service, but that is mostly because I live in other state and had travel plans to consider in every wedding planning milestone.
I would recommend Mon Amie for any bride that wants a designer gown without going to New York or spending an arm and a leg.

I felt like a princess because of Mon Amie. The staff always made me feel like a perfect bride.

After getting a dress from David's Bridal, I was nervous about jumping into another purchase. But the bridal consultant was so friendly and calming. She knew I was nervous and I was scared to purchase a second dress.

But she found the best dress! Even though it originally had straps, she knew if they took them off, it would look gorgeous on my body. She was right!

I love my Mon Amie dress so much. I wish I could wear it every day!

I purchased my bridal gown at Mon Amie in Sept of 2012 for my wedding in July 2013. I had a great overall experience there. My first appointment was with Brittany. She was patient and helped me try on many different dresses. She was never pushy and I didn't feel rushed (unlike some other salons that I had visited). After purchasing my dress, they set up the first alteration appointment a few months before the wedding date. My 'seamstress' was Gloria. SHE.IS.AMAZING. She is so funny and kept me laughing at a typically stressfull time. The first round of alterations went great but then the dress needed to be shortened again (requiring lots of hand sewing of lace and appliques!) Gloria didn't bat an eye. I know its her job to do it, but she was cheerful and patient and never grumpy about all of the work ahead of her. She did a great job and even worked me in on a day when she was fully booked. I thoroughly enjoyed my experience at Mon Amie. I would highly recommend this shop to anyone looking for THE DRESS :)

Wow! I went in expecting to be "just browsing" and came out buying the first dress I tried on! Their selection is HUGE and you get an assistant to personally help you. The rooms are so cute and you get to step up on the platform in front of the mirrors just like you see in movies. It was a dream. The assistant carried and picked out anything I pointed to and made other suggestions. Helped me in and out of my dress and offered truthful compliments/criticisms. They had everything from couture dresses, to more casual ones, to fairytale ones. I left with the dress of my dreams and a great memory as well. They are friendly and accommodating. I also bought my veil here which was gorgeous. The only critique on that is it had a small hole in it (we made sure it could not be seen when it was on, unless you looked very closely). They were only able to take 10% off, which I thought could have been a bigger discount considering the hole.

Everything else was great. Best part: they provide for all budgets. Accessories were expensive, but my dress was WAY under budget, keeping everyone happy.

On the wedding day, got endless comments on it.
Great experience!!

Furthermore, the seamstress was amazing! The bustier in my dress was HUGE compared to my 32A frame and I was very very worried that it would not fit (and we were on a tight schedule, with the fitting only a week away from the wedding). But it fit PERFECTLY and made it look like my boobs were bigger. She made me laugh the whole time, promising me "Hollywood boobs." Just one second alteration was needed to cut some tulle so I would not step on it. She was great!

My sister-in-law had shopped at Mon Amie for her dress and so I made an appointment. I had shopped at 2 other stores and was discouraged that I would not find my dress. The consultant at Mon Amie said we would find my perfect dress and I did! I came in during a Steven Yearick trunk show (a designer I had not looked at) and on the third dress - found it! It came in more beautiful than I expected and the alterations department did a fantastic job making a French train that I could ballroom dance in. My veil and accessories were equally lovely. Thank you Mon Amie for a beautiful dress, fabulous alterations and great service

I had a wonderful experience at Mon Amie. I went in with my mom with the intent of just trying some dresses on since I still had over a year before my wedding date and frankly I didn't think we could afford any of the dresses there that I really wanted. But the service we received was so exceptional, my mom and I knew we had to buy my dress at Mon Amie after our first visit. Jenny was my sales associate and she was superb. She helped me pull the style of dresses I was looking for and let me try on as many as I wanted. She had a good eye for what I liked, just from listening to me, and ended up pulling a dress that I'd never heard of but ended up being THE ONE! My mom was so impressed with Jenny and the overall professionalism of all the staff, that she decided without even a second thought, to buy me a gown that was $1000 over her original budget! She said that Jenny and the staff were so professional and courteous, that she felt that extra money was WELL worth it. So thank you Jenny and Mon Amie ladies for making my mom feel that way! Thanks to you ladies, I ended up with a dress far more beautiful and expensive than I'd ever imagined I could get! Even at the point when I was being super indecisive and kept going back and forth on my choice, Jenny and the rest of the staff were so gracious and never made me feel like I was being a pain in the a** even though I knew I was. They really made my mom and I feel special and I will be forever grateful for that. The bottom line is, the ladies at Mon Amie are experienced, professional, and care about your happiness. I highly recommend Mon Amie!!

Wedding dress buying is serious business- it is one of the staple wedding experiences that many girls have dreamed about since they were a wee lass. I can't say I fall into that category, however I did think that the moment I stepped into my first wedding dress it would all seem real finally, and I can say without hesitation that it absolutely did!

I can't for the life of me remember the name of the consultant we had, but I can tell you that on two separate visits (one during a Lazaro fashion show- so much fun!) I had two very different, yet equally amazing consultants help me. I never felt under budget, or too fat, or pressured in any way- quite the contrary, my consultant helped me stay within budget and ended up suggesting the beautiful Allure gown I ended up getting married in, as well as a beautiful sparkly belt that made it all the more unique. You want to feel the most beautiful you've ever been or ever will be on your wedding day, and these ladies really helped me feel that way even when I didn't think I would.

Thank you Mon Amie Bridal for helping make my wedding day one I'll never forget!

Huge selection with lots of variety, and good prices for Orange County. My sales gal was not pushy in the least and gave me lots of time to decide. Dress came a little late (although they warned me when I selected it), so leave lots of time. Alternations were a breeze. I also got my bridesmaids' dresses in their affiliated bridesmaid salon and my girls looked beautiful.

Amazing selection! Carina was my consultant and did an amazing job for me. She listened to everything I said i wanted. After trying a few, she read between the lines and gave me what i didn't even know I wanted. It was more "me" than what I had been looking at, totally unique and understated and very flattering for my figure. I was very happy with my dress.

My appointment at Mon Amie was my very first appointment, I came in thinking I was not going to find my dress. My consultant was Natalie, she helped my cousin find her wedding dress. Natalie asked me all the right questions to find the prefect wedding dress. She brought out dresses that went perfectly with my body type and was very honest when a dress did not work. I ended up buying my wedding dress that day and it ended up being the very first dress I tried on! My alterations were also done at Mon Amie, they made my dress fit like a glove.

I worked with Natalie at Mona Mie she is wonderful.. my recomendation is to attend a trunk show if there is a designer in mind that for your dress. I chose an Alvina Valenta from Lazarro. I attended a truk show so there was a ton of selection and you can normally meet the designer (Jessica actually sketched a picture of me in my dress) and I even got a discount and free shipping.

Mon Amie is the creme of the crop Bridal shop. The dresses are simply stunning and we had looked at 8 different bridal shops but continued to return to Mon Amie even though it was out of our budget. We made it work, because the dress was simply amazing, one of a kind Augusta Jones. Jaws dropped when I put it on and people commented because it was so unusual. The day I bought it, it was the designers trunk sale and they gave an additional percentage off as well as customized it to my size, so it was tailored just to my measurements. When it came in, I didn't need any tailoring at all. just one part tacked down. As someone said at my wedding, it looked like they sewed you in it... and the dress was breathtaking. The staff was wonderful, even when... and we weren't sure whose fault this was, but when my dress came in the first time, they had made the wrong dress... I was very calm and we had plenty of time to get the correct one in. However, they made sure to rush my real one and it came in perfect. Some of the upper staff is a little rough around the edges, but they are probably dealing with a lot of crazy Brides. My girl Jessica was wonderful and Jennie in the the fittings as well as Esmerelda in alterations are fabulous. I loved everything about it, the experience, etc. If you are looking for something a little more different and want a dress that no one else would have then dig deep in Mon Amie throughout their designers and you will be amazed at what you see. I truly felt like a special bride and they made my experience wonderful. I was sad not to return anymore. You can find whatever your heart desires from simplicity, vintage, and even my big greek wedding style is available for you to try. I definitely recommend, go in and have fun trying on many different styles.

Mon Amie was recommended to me by a friend. The bridal salon was amazing. The elderly woman that helped me was so incredibly sweet AND kept to my budget. Within five dresses, I had found the one. After trying it on a year later, it was still perfect. The alterations department did a wonderful job of fitting it to my size (even though I'd dropped two sizes that year). I would highly recommend this vendor.

I only purchased my dress here as I had to do my alts in another state. I had somewhat of an idea of what I was looking for. After trying on 3 dresses, I asked the woman if she had a dress that might be a combination of two of them. Sure enough she walks in with "that dress". Personal attention was great. Also got my jewelry and veil here. Great quality!

I said "yes to the dress" at Mon Amie and couldn't be happier! They were the first bridal shop I visited, and I walked away two hours later with my dress picked out! They were so professional, friendly, and budget conscious. Unlike the show "Say Yes to the Dress," they did not show me any gowns that were out of my budget, which was very important for me. Desiree was my consultant, and she was so sweet and let me pick out all of my dresses, which made me feel like she had my best interest in mind. She did not try to persuade me into buying anything at all. I brought my mom and sister with me to the appointment, and they were able to sit in a private area and watch me come out in each dress. It was a very intimate experience, with no more than two brides in the salon at the same time. I went to David's Bridal at a later time to pick out bridesmaid dresses, and was appalled at how chaotic, impersonal, and public the whole process was. Anyway, I tried on about 6 dresses, and fell in love with the very first dress! I had to rush order the dress and was really worried it wouldn't come in on time, but it ended up arriving about a month early! The dress fitting process was a breeze (I only had to go in twice). The woman who did my alterations really listened to me, which I appreciated. In the end, my dress fit beautifully, the train was perfect, the bustle was perfect, etc. I could go on and on. I felt so beautiful that day, and am so grateful to Mon Amie for making my wedding dress dream a reality. I would definitely recommend them to any other bride! Thank you, Mon Amie!!!

I had looked for a wedding dress all over northern california and I found dresses I like but had yet to make a purchase. My parents live in the Los Angeles area so when I was visiting them my Mom and I visited Mon Amie. We did not have an appointment so we just browsed however we made it clear to them that we really wanted to try on some dresses and they were able to squeeze us in. This store is beautiful. I love how you can touch and fell every dress and pick out the ones that you want to try on. In many of the other stores I visited the dresses were shoved into bags on racks so you could not easily see what they looked like. I found the dress I wound up buying by seeing it hanging nicely with other dresses by the same designer. Mon Amie also has the largest stock of dresses. They had every dress that I had tried on at other stores so I was able to compare my previous favorites to the dress that I ultimately bought.

I first went to Mon Amie for a trunk show though many of the dresses were out of my price range. I explained to my salesperson what my budget was and style I was looking for. Well, to my surprise, my salesperson came out with 3 dresses that I fell in love with. I ended up buying one with matching shoes and had them alter it too. The dress fit perfectly and was on time. The overall service was great and i'd recommend calling ahead to schedule an appointment so you get the attention you want.

When I was there last August, I had a chance to talk to a lot of other brides and they all had different stories. So many of them said they had planned wedding after wedding only to have their fiances deployed unexpectedly. My husband’s deployment was extended by a month, giving us only a month after he returned to finish planning the little things for the wedding. Deployments are a hard thing to deal with, especially when planning a wedding, and your event brings a little sunshine to a dreary situation. Thank you, again. It is much appreciated."

The gown-choosing experience for me was special from the moment I booked my appointment to the day I picked up my gown! I am actually sad that I don't have a reason to go and shop there some more! Rebecca was my consultant and she was so helpful, sensitive, and generous with her time. Never did I feel rushed nor pressed to purchase. She gave me honest and loving advice like a friend or a mom would which truly helped my selection process. I bought one of Lazaro's new gowns from his spring collection and am thrilled to this day by my selection and experience - I have never felt more beautiful! Thank you Mon Amie, and Thank you Rebecca!

I told the staff that i love lace, crystal and ball gown and the first dress my girl pulled out, my jaw dropped cause it's "the one"....LOVE IT! On the day of my wedding, everybody love my dress and couldn't wait to take picture with me in my ball gown dress.

i checked out David's Bridal and it's horrible! I love Mon Amie because i love the details, material and design of their wedding gowns. I told the staff that i love lace, crystal and ball gown and the first dress my girl pulled out, my jaw dropped cause it's "the one"....LOVE IT! On the day of my wedding, everybody love my dress and couldn't wait to take picture with me in my ball gown dress.

The dresses at Mon Amie are absolutely stunning. Almost every dress I tried on I just loved and it was difficult for me to choose just one! The gowns are fresh, modern, elegant, classy, and just different. The staff here is so accommodating and sweet. I loved my dress and got married in May 2011; I received so many compliments about my dress.

I love my Italian Atelier Aimee wedding dress and veil from Mon Amie Bridal. It is still the most beautiful dress I'd ever seen! I wish I could wear it again :) I found it at Trunk Show while the collection was at the store for that weekend only. My dress is Italian Chantilly lace and bias cut silk organza. The designer customized the top for me - adding a Chantilly lace v-neck top. They also made me a custom floor length Italian Chantilly lace veil in the same lace as the gown, and named the veil after me. The gown was custom made to my height. I also purchased my Stewart Weizmann wedding shoes at Mon Amie Bridal Salon. The alterationist look out the zipper and added in a lace up back, that I love. I would recommend Mon Amie to all my friends. Someday I am going to build a built-in frame in my closet, and have my wedding gown and veil displayed in there - so I can look admire it whenever I want. My wedding day is definitely the day I felt the most beautiful!

Mon Amie was fabulous. I had a wonderful experience with them, from picking out my dress (the very first time I tried on dresses, might I add), to the fittings, alterations, and selection of jewelry, veil, and shoes. If you can make a trunk show weekend, that's always fun - because I bought my gorgeous Jim Hjelm during a trunk show weekend I got to pick a 2011, hot off the runway. Plus, I had the pleasure of meeting the designer of my dress, the lovely, gracious, and incredibly talented, Francesca Pitera.

It's pretty overwhelming to look for a wedding dress, knowing how special that one day will be. I thought there we so many beautiful salons to go to but when I went to Mon Amie the selection of dresses took my breath away! Natalie G. patiently walked me through all the styles and options for me. Her commitment was touching and I left there feeling like she should come to my wedding! I found the perfect dress of coarse and Louise N. took care the alterations. They were very dependable and timely. After a couple visits I wanted to invite her to my wedding as well! LOL Needless to say I love the whole group there at Mon Amie and I truly received the dress of my dreams! It was one of the most pleasant, memorable and rewarding experiences of my wedding planning.

Finding my dress was probably the easiest part of wedding planning...and I owe it to Mon Amie's customer service and dedication. I went by myself (which I would recommend to any bride!) to Mon Amie on Saturday and my consultant listened to what I wanted and delivered! She brought me 10 dresses that fit my criteria and we slowly narrowed it down to two and then finally, the one! She was patient and not pushy at all. She let me decide and gave me really honest feedback. She also wasn't insisting I buy the most expensive dress - she made sure I felt good about the dress I was wearing, which I thought was great. I ended up spending 1/5 of what I budgeted and absolutely LOVED my dress. Although Costa Mesa is a bit of a drive from Santa Monica, I would recommend Mon Amie to any bride!

I cant say enough great things about Mon Amie Bridal Salon! I had been looking for my wedding gown for a while and had not found "The Dress". At Mon Amie, I found THE DRESS just five minutes after telling my bridal consultant, Melissa, what I was looking for. When she walked in the dressing room with the dress, I knew it was the one and my eyes light up. My dress was absolutely gorgeous and I cannot thank you enough!

I loved everything about my experience here!

-I loved my salesperson, she was not an annoying bimbo like some of those girls that "help" you.
-I loved that they had sample dresses in larger sizes!! There is no other place with upscale dresses that you can try on in a size 16. I refused to pay $2000 for a dress that I couldn't try on, and at Mon Amie I tried on probably 10 dresses!
-I loved my seamstress. She just "get's it" if you know what I mean. I told her I wanted my dress to be really tight, so that it would cinch my waist, and I was worried that she would make it to fit too loose, but it was perfect! Very flattering!

I had no problems, everything went smooth, and I was able to buy my dream wedding dress. Thanks Mon Amie!!

A friend told me about Mon Amie and your wide selection of gowns. From my very first visit through my final fitting appointment, the customer service was top-notch and the quality of the products and services was very impressive. I found the perfect gown and felt great knowing that I was buying it from a local Orange County business. Melanie and Nancy were especially helpful! :) Thanks for everything!

My mother, sister, and myself visited Mon Amie a month before the actual wedding day on a quest for accessories and such. Little did we know that the gown of my dreams was in there waiting for me to try her on. Please note that I was actually having my gown made, but the seamstress had not started cutting into the material yet. Also, before Mon Amie, I had not entered a bridal boutique once since my engagement on Christmas. To make a long story short, as I passed through the first aisle of gowns, there it was, a beautiful, unique, Amy Michelson breath of heaven gown. I owe it all to my sister, Jolina who was the first to eye the gown and quickly brought it to my attention. With the magnificent gown in my arms, Belle came to my aide to assist in me in trying on my very first fitting of a wedding gown and it was nothing less than breathtaking! And when they have the much anticipated bride walk passed the window to let the sunlight hit the gown and the timeless expression of the bride's face, while hearing gasps of amazement from strangers and finally when they see you, your awaiting family members... timeless! Gloria, the seamstress at Mon Amie, was so gracious and so very helpful, as well as Belle, that this was one of the least stressful events leading up to my wedding day. I thank you with such enthusiasm for the most wonderful experience in purchasing one of the most major and most cherished moments in a woman's life. Your service was top-notch and I highly recommend Mon Amie to any anxious bride!

Ok, so before I decided to go to Mon Amie I read all of these horrible reviews about the place. But ... I decided to push my luck and try it out. I figured if I didn't like it I just simply would not get my dress there and it would be done. But the exact opposite happend. I got there and they were really nice considering I got stuck in traffic and was late to my appointment. My sales person was Natalie (yes we have the same name, but she was recommended to me by someone else) She was great she let me try on all the dresses I wanted and even more than once when I got it down to three different dresses. She bargained a good price for me that fell into my budget and was nothing but polite and professional the whole time. I feel in love with a dress and I left happy. When I returned for my fitting it was equally as pleasant my seanstress name was ... dammit I forgot I'll input it later. Anyways she was awesome and really truely cared about making my dress perfect for me. Even when it came down to getting all my attire pressed they agreed to press my veil even though I did not purchase it at that location. So I'm just gonna say that you should give them a shot because it worked wonderfully for me. But in the in its a decision that is completely up to you. GOOD LUCK!!!!!!!!

I was very impressed by the personal attention I received during my appointment at Mon Amie. I had just gone to David's Bridal earlier that morning and was very turned off by the lack of attention given by the associates. In addition, the changing rooms at David's Bridal reminded me of the small changing stalls you would find at Target or Kmart. However, I was very pleased to find out that a personal room was set aside for my appointment at Mon Amie. The room was spacious and had ample space for the pedestal, plenty of floor-length mirrors, and comfy chairs for my mom and sister to lounge in while they watched me change into various dresses. I had an associate personally assigned to me and stayed with me for almost 3 hours! She was extremely patient and willing to lug about 30-40 dresses in and out of the room based on my style preferences and budget. The dresses were a bit pricier than the ones I'd seen at David's Bridal but it was definitely worth it considering the personal attention and service I received. I truly felt like it was "my" own special day.

My experience with Mon Amie and their staff was incredible. When I was searching for my wedding dress I found this beautiful Lazaro white lace dress in the window. It was my very first day looking at dresses and I feel in love with it as soon as I tried it on. My mother was in tears when she saw me! I loved the personal attention I was give from the very beginning. The seamstress was especially helpful throughout my fittings as well. I ended picking out the jewelry, shoes, headband, mantia and even added a piece of jewels to the waist to accentuate the dress. Everyone was so helpful from start to finish and I am grateful because as every bride knows, planning a wedding is stressful work. My wedding dress was amazing and I was lucky enough to get the first one in this design! I could not have dreamt for a more perfect dress and experience for myself and my husband. Thank you!

My sister first got her dress at Mon Amie the year before I was engaged. I then got engaged and was planning my wedding to be in three months. I knew I wanted to go to Mon Amie. They were very accomodating in getting me an appointment right away to come in to try on dresses. I found the perfect dress and they called the designer to make sure they could rush it to have it made in time for my wedding. All the ladies were so wonderful to me and made the whole experience amazing. My best friend is now engaged and also went to Mon Amie this last week and got her dress, because she rememebered how great it was for me. :)

Mon Amie is huge and they have a wide range of dresses from affordable to very expensive. I found the dress of my dreams here. They were very professional and helpful. They even allowed me to make some changes to the design of my dress. I would recommend this place to any one.

It was nearly empty and I got lots of attention. My dress was extremely cheap for a designer dress. They were having a huge Thanksgiving sale and there was a great selection of dresses for very reasonable prices.

I had always intended on going to Mon Amie's, because they were so good to my sister when she bought her wedding dress. Due to final exams at school, winter holidays, and several family birthdays, I wasn't able to make it to Mon Amie's before the 6 month mark. I went at the 5 month mark. Instead of immediately trying to sell me on a dress that would have to be rush ordered, and therefore stretching my budget, my saleswoman recommended that I see what they had in store for me to buy. I didn't expect much, because I'm not the average body type. However, I found my dress for a third of my budget. After having it altered, replacing two beads, and having it cleaned and pressed, it was like new. I was very pleased. After going with my sister for her dress, and going for myself, I realized that Mon Amie's staff is very good at keeping you within your budget. They are very friendly, and despite doing this for a living, they are very aware of how important this all is to the bride.

Mon Amie has an excellent selection of dresses and I couldn't imagine anyone not finding what they're looking for there. Their dresses are pricey, as they are high-end, but they are absolutely beautiful. They also have a nice selection of jewelry and accessories to finish off your look. Both consultants that I have worked with, as well as the manager, were very helpful and patient in helping me find the perfect dress. Thanks, Mon Amie!

I had Nataly as my dress consultant and she was amazing. I brought in several pictures of the dresses I liked and with that she pulled 7 out of the 7000 dresses into my dressing room. I had a 3,000 budget but she ended up bringing in a dress that was only $1,700 and to my surprise it was the one! I had wonderful experiences there and highly recommend it. It can be a bit pricey is the only thing but I felt like the most beautiful woman in the world in that dress and it was worth every penny!

I bought my wedding dress from them, I really liked the set up of the store and the level of customer service. Appointments are required, can't just walk in and try on dresses. I didn't feel rushed as I did from out stores and the girl who helped me did a great job. Pricy, but I loved my dress and I bought it during a truck show, so I got to meet the designer and take a picture with her. Also, it was a new dress that was only offered during the trunk show at that time. One nice aspect is they do have a wide range of prices so when you go they will direct you only to the areas that are in your price range.

I purchased a beautiful Jim Hjelm gown from Mon Amie last year for my wedding. While this was a bit out of my price range, I wasn't find 'the dress' in the $1500 and under category. If you are will to spend over $2000, this is the store for you. They have a ton of dresses, and lots of the what I would call 'mid-range' of bridal dresses ($1500 - $4000). I went on the Jim Hjelm trunk show day (Mon Amie has a lot of these, which is great), so I received 10% off of my dress. In addition, because it was a trunk show, I was able to get a Jim Hjelm gown that wasn't carried by many salons. Everyone was super friendly and helpful during my appointment, though I do have to say that after my dress was purchased and I went in for my presentation appointment, I sort of just felt like I was being rushed through. It's ok though, because I got my dress and it was wonderful. I did not have alterations done here, so I cannot speak for the alterations department.

One thing that was nice about the women who helped me was that they really did order me the size dress that would best fit me. I have had bad experiences with bridal shops ordering me way too large bridesmaid dresses hoping to get alteration money, but Mon Amie did not do this.

All in all, it a great bridal salon, and I am happy I was able to buy my dress from them.

I purchased a Pronovias dress from Mon Amie off the rack. They cleaned it and repaired it to restore it to "new" quality before I started my fittings. What I liked is that I asked my salesperson not to bring me any dresses that were out of my price range so that I wouldn't be tempted to spend more than I could afford and she didn't. I absolutely loved my dress and it fit beautifully. They have a great selection and dresses in all price ranges. I wouldn't suggest buying your veil or accessories there though because they are really pricey and you can find the same ones online for cheaper.

I fell in love with my dress before I ever set foot in the salon. It was featured in a bridal magazine and Mon Ami happened to be one of the stores that carried this designer and this particular dress. I made an appointment and spent a lovely afternoon with my maid of honor trying on the most exquisite gowns! In the end... you guessed it! I chose the gown I had called about in the first place. It is a fairy-tale dress... and I felt like a princess on my wedding day.

I will admit, Mon Ami is high-end retail. However, you get what you pay for. Efficient, professional, courteous service, perfect alterations and an atmosphere of serene elegance. I tried to be practical and kept trying on less expensive dresses... but only my dress was "the" dress. Looking back, it was so worth it!

Mon Amie was the first bridal salon I've been to and was hoping to find my dress in the first try and I DID!! They have a great selection! Everyone was so friendly and helpful! My consultant Karen listened to what I wanted since I've never tried on dresses before she pulled a few that she thought the look I was going for which was "modern glam" and I wanted trumpet or mermaid with a sweetheart neckline and long behold she found my dream dress! It was the second dress I put on! Karen wanted me to try on more dresses just to make sure and after trying on a few more on I was positive I found my dress!! Thanks mon amie for helping me find my Matthew Christopher gown!! Also my future mother in law bought her dress here 30 years ago!

I was very thrilled with the service received at Mon Amie. Everything went smoothly - they were very prompt in calling me to follow-up once the dress was ordered. The alterations were perfect and I felt that I received very personalized service. The do carry more higher end dresses but there are lower-priced options as well so check them out!

Mon Amie has a large selection of elegant and sophisticated dresses. The staff are friendly and do their best to accommodate your budget. They do nickle and dime their way and will try to upsell you. The veils and jewelry are overpriced, and alterations and dry cleaning (charged seperately) are expensive. However, their dress selection is lovely.

I'm a tall girl (6'2") and selected a silk gown from Amy Michelson of which I actually had to hem.

Mon Amie is the best place in Orange County for gorgeous wedding gowns. They have the best selection and the most professional staff. Buying a wedding gown is not only about the purchase, but about the experience. The Mon Amie staff have the classic touch that make the experience so fabulous for any bride. It is an all-in-one stop shop. I think I bought practically everything there (dress, undergarments, shoes) except my jewelry. It is on the more expensive side but you really do pay for amazing service.

I am so happy with Gennie at Mon Amie. She was very helpful picking out the perfect gown for me, knowing what I was looking for, what gown looked good with my body shape and staying within my budget!! The trunk show was awesome too. Any bride that has not picked out their dress from here, find out when the designer will be there for a trunk show, it helped me pick out my gown talking to the designer and doing a custom fit for me. I can not wait for my wedding day!!

I wanted to go to numerous bridal salons and shop around a lot, but I only got as far as Mon Amie. I just happened to stop in on the day of a Stephen Yearick trunk show, and MAN am I glad I did! The designer, Lee Price, was there and acted like he was my personal consultant (although I did have a regular consultant). Lee let me do a few different customizations to make the dress exactly how I wanted it. The end result was amazing!!! The dresses here are not cheap, but if you are willing to pay for a designer dress, Mon Amie is the place to do it. The only complaint I have is that the veil I ordered was not exactly the one I received. It was similar, but just an uglier version. When I brought it to their attention they said it could be fixed, although they never did tell me why they just couldn't provide me with the correct veil. They have a woman on staff who handles veil issues, and when I went in for my first fitting she had already made alterations to the veil (which I thought was very nice). However, it was not cute at all. I asked her to make it just like the original, and when I came in for my final fitting, the veil was not very much like the original at all but I actually ended up liking it better. I'm lucky it turned out that way and they are lucky too or else I would have been unhappy and this review would not have been as nice. They did their best to make things right though, so I definitely give them credit for that.

Every visit at Mon Amie Bridal was nothing but a great experience. My bridal consultant Vicki was so nice, helpful, and professional. She directed us to dresses that were in my price range and had me, my mom, and sister pick out some out for me to try on. The dress she picked out for me ended up being "the one" - I looked and felt great, it accentuated the parts of my body I liked (my boobs and butt in particular), and it was priced lower than the gowns my sister and I picked out. I never felt pressured to make a purchase, but I after my first appointment, I didn't bother going to any other salon as I only wanted to work with Vicki.

I went back to Mon Amie for my first alterations appointment where I was then greeted by Jenny. Oh Jenny – she is a Godsend to say the least. She figured out how to remove the bunching in the front and big gap at the back of the dress without compromising the details that made me fall in love with the dress. Jenny also served as sort of a fashion design consultant. Jenny recommended what bra and underwear we should use for the best cleavage. She suggested accessories and hairstyles. She even showed us how to walk down the aisle and pose for pictures!

I couldn’t imagine going anywhere else to go shopping and get alterations done for my dress. It must have been fate for Mon Amie to pair me with shorties, like myself, that understood my body type. Thank you Mon Amie!!!

My sister and best friend both got their gowns from Mon Amie, so it was a natural choice for me. Deanna was my consultant, and she was very patient with me. I was able to get my dream gown because they were able to sell me the sample gown used in the showroom, which was in great shape. Many people thought the gown was vintage because it was so unique.

They have a great dress selection, but I would recommend being a savvy bride there. The simplest veils are very overpriced. I was quoted $300 for a chapel length veil. I ended up making mine for about $5. Also, I wouldn't recommend getting your gown altered there. We were quoted at least $500. I ended getting mine done beautifully by an independent tailor for around $300.

Overall, I think the dress selection can't be beat in Southern California. But do go in knowing what you want, because the place can become overwhelming.

Thank you, Mon Amie!

Mon Amie has beautiful gowns and so many to choose from! The day we went to try on gowns for the first time was more than I expected and we had a wonderful time! Our stylist was a pleasure to work with and she pulled a perfect gown that we ended up purchasing that day. My later fittings has a few minor bumps that we did get through, they caused me some stress because of a few "hidden cost" issues and problems with my dress but we got through it all. Overall I would recommend them just know your dress and allow plenty of advance time to order.

I came here with my sister about 8 years ago when she was looking for her wedidng dress and it was a mess. However, I went back last year for my own wedding dress based on recent good reviews and was pleasantly surprised at the efficiency of the girls, there. I found a dress that cost $1200 (great deal) but with alterations, petticoat, veil, etc. it came out to more than double what I paid for the dress itself. Watch out for the alterations fees, and when the seamstress takes in the hem, make sure she takes in the underskirt as well (and I'm not talking about the petticoat) because I kept tripping on the underskirt at my wedding. So, anyway, I decided to get everything done there simply because I live far from the shop and didn't want to deal with the hassle of finding another seamstress. My jewelry, which was part of the Rene Pawele line, was made there and I was extremely pleased with them. The price tag was about $500-600 for earrings and the necklace combined, but as I was told by the saleswomen at Mon Amie, I was way under budget compared to most of the brides that walked into the store. Overall, I had a nice experience. Everything was completed on time and I didn't have to worry much.

This is a great one-stop bridal salon for all the brides out there. If you're looking for high-end couture and non-couture dresses, this is the place to go and shop. They have a huge selection. Prices are somewhat affordable and reasonable given for the quality of the dress. The only problem is their flexibility in schedule makes it very difficult for brides, especially if you're working. Other than that, this place is wonderful!

I appreciated the service and timeliness of the more experienced salewomen/managerial staff. Also, the seamstresses were absolutely wonderful to work with and went above and beyond to accommodate some of the special needs I had with this dress.

My strongest area of feedback would point to 3 areas. 1. The saleswomen are too young and too focused on making the sale rather than focusing on excellent quality service. I had been to 2 other wedding boutiques where the staff honored the fact that this was a special occasion in my life. At Monamie, the older staff did this, but the two other young staff I had need more improvement in this area.

2. There needs to be a bigger selection of more affordable and beautiful dresses.

3. Saturdays were rough there! Perhaps that is why I didn't feel like a valued customer initially--I went on a busy Saturday.

Overall, I was pleased with my experience and would refer others to this boutique. But I felt it was important to offer my constructive feedback because for a higher end retailer, the customer service needs to meet a higher standard.

Mon Amie was the first place I went to and I found my dress there. I had a limited budget so I was a bit concerned that I wasn't going to find anything in my price range. The girl who helped me was super friendly and helpful and gave me the options with what I had budgeted. The store is really big so there were a lot to look through. I tried on 4 dresses and found the one so fast! AND it was right in my price range so I knew I had to get it. I completely don't remember the name of the gal who helped me, but she made the experience so fun for my mom, friend and me. She was so easy to work with and made me feel so comfortable. The dress came in about the timeframe they had promised. I just took the dress elsewhere to get altered since it was a bit expensive at Mon Amie. Overall, it was a great experience since I found my dream dress!

This is a massive dress shop in Costa Mesa and although I had read some of the negative reviews online before going there, I went in here because I know they have a really large selection (and in the end I ended up getting my dress here). I can't complain about the dress itself- it was beautiful and I loved it. I did have some problems with the tactics at this business- they are pushier than at some of the other dress shops I went to and I told them my budget from the get-go and they brought me dresses that were more expensive than I could afford. But as I said above, I was really happy with the dress in the end- it was really unique and just perfect (and that's what counts in the end, right?).

There is one universal compliment I received wearing my dress from Mon Amie... "stunning." It's not often you hear such a great compliment, so it's tough to forget. I decided to buy from Mon Amie because my best friend got her dress there. Also, my fiance wanted me to have the "princess experience." That's exactly what I got at Mon Amie. I was treated like I was the most important person in the room. When my friends and family were off pulling dresses, my consultant, July, went to the back and pulled what turned out to be my dress. July had me try on her choice first and there was no need to try on any more dresses. It was the one. The gorgeous ivory organza was perfect for my beach wedding in Malibu. Thank you Mon Amie for helping make my day perfect.

I got the most beautiful, unique wedding gown from Mon Amie. I am a plus size bride and at the time they had their La Femme section, which catered to us healthy girls. Sadly, I don't think they carry the La Femme line anymore. I had a great experience from the moment I entered the salon to the day I took my dress home after alterations. :)

Let me tell you...I was DREADING dress shopping. Why? Because I had NO idea what I wanted and that scared me, a lot. Mid April (wedding was in November) I made an appointment at Mon Amie to try on dresses for the first time. My consultant was Natalie. She sat me down and asked me questions about what I liked. Of course, I was vague since I really had no idea. She went on to tell me what style dress would flatter my body type (I'm 6') and the styles I needed to avoid (to not waste my time trying them on). Honestly, she was dead on describing the styles that would work for me and I knew it before I even tried anything on. I really liked that about her. We walked around the store and pulled dresses for me to try on. First, I tried on a lace gown and I wasn't so impressed. Then I went for a beaded gown which was MUCH more along the lines of what I liked. I expressed that to her and she said since I was stearing in that direction there was no need to try on any more lace gowns. She removed them all from the dressing room and left only beaded gowns. The third dress I saw, I fell in love with! Unfortunately, it was a "model" size gown and didn't even fit on the mannequin, ha! I feel like I know what flatters my body type well so although I couldn't even try on the dress, I ordered it! My only "issue" with Mon Amie - I was told it would arrive mid October at the LATEST (6 weeks before my wedding). They didn't call me to tell me it wasn't going to arrive when promised. I called them and asked about it. Well, it ended up arriving three weeks before my wedding. Yeah, a little nerve racking BUT my alterations woman went to work on it right away (I didn't get it altered at Mon Amie). In the end, my dress was perfect and all I ever could have wanted! I loved that Natalie cut to the chase and helped me save time and frustration while choosing my dress. It made the experience so pleasant and simple!

I had a great experience with Mon Amie. My dress was exactly what I wanted and shopping with them was very fun. They have a huge selection of gorgeous gowns. I only have two things I would have changed:

1. On my first appointment the salesgirl sort of rushed me at the end when I was making the final decision to purchase my gown. She told me something to the effect of "my next appointment is here". So I did feel sort of rushed even though I knew that I had found "the one". And I never got any celebratory champagne.
2. I ordered my gown in March for my October wedding. They told me it would be in by late August. When the first week of September rolled around and I still had not heard from them, I called and they said that the dress was set to ship in the next couple of days out of New York. I almost felt like the order was misplaced and they were finally putting it through because my dress did not have any elaborate details, it was all tulle and nothing else.

So even though the dress got here a few weeks before my wedding, the staff was super helpful, responsive and they worked quickly to get me into my last fittings and do alterations. I'll be back one day because they do owe me some champagne!!! LOL

Note: Price ranges at this bridal salon are higher than the chain stores, so don't be surprised. BUT.... you get what you pay for and the quality and variety is definitely apparent.

Loved Mon Amie!!!!!!!!!!!!

It was funny, when i got to the salon, we were a little early for my appt so we rummaged through some of their million dresses that they have. almost immediately i saw one that i LOVED. It was Cymbaline- Euriell. I was holding it when the assistant came out and introduced herself. We started the apt, and she pulled some dresses and we tried on the first one of many that my mom and sister pulled, and I was like.. nooo this is definitley not what I want. But then she asked me, what do I want? And I was like, can we go back outside? I went and got that Cymbeline Dress again, and she was like,, weren't you holding on to this when I was talking to you? and i said YES !

and I tried it on. I fell in love for the second time in my entire life!

Loved it! It fit perfect! Everything about it, except for the price.

Then she goes, well, the funny thing is, this is the only Cymbeline dress we have in the store right now, its brand new, and no one has tried it on, and it fits you PERFECTLY. Liza, TAKE IT HOME!

So I did!
She knew exactly what I wanted, and pushed me to go with my gut feeling.

I'd recommend this to everyone because honestly, their selection was the very best!

I rated it a little low because when coming back to pick up the dress, I dealt with some really snobby phone clerks. I shouldn't have to call back 3 times to find out what time they are open on a Tuesday.

Also, their irregular business hours, they sort of suck. haha ;)

Mon Amie is mainly an up scale bridal salon, but they have a great discontinued/sale rack. I bought my dress on the first visit and it was only the third dress I tried on. They listened to what I wanted and they were really helpful. Make sure you make an appointment or go on a week day. The weekends are very busy! If you want to take your time and enjoy the experience without bumping in to other brides, call first. Other than that, they were very helpful and everything was on time or early. I loved my dress and the service!

My mother and I made a day of Mon Amie but not expecting too much... really just to look around. But we started looking and looking and we saw some beautiful dresses. I picked out 5 dresses but found "the one" after 3. The ladies there were very helpful in assisting us and helped pick out matching shoes, a veil and a petty coat. We were out of there for under $1,500.00 but they took all the worry out of it for me. I was completely satisfied with the dress!

While my overall experince with Mon Amie ended up positively I am giving them 4 stars for a few weeks of panic. First the good news about my experience. Mon Amie was my first bridal gown appointment, In fact I wasn't even planning on purchasing my dress, I was just looking to get ideas while my mom was in town visiting. However, our bridal consultant was quite helpful. She met with me, found out my budget and than we started looking through an overwhelming number of dresses. We settled on 6 to bring into the dressing room. I fell in love with the second dress I tried and knew it was the one for me. I placed my order, including a veil, and was given a date that my dress would arrive. Based on the date I knew there would be plenty of time for alterations if needed. Now for the weeks of panic. My dress didn't arrive when it was supposed to, in fact it took about a month after the promised date for the dress to arrive. This is not the time you need added stress in an already stressful process. When my dress arrived it needed alterations and I worked with Esmie. She was a blessing. So calm and experienced she put my fears at ease and told me the dress would be done in plenty of time and would fit me perfectly. She was true to her word. She completed the alterations, they were perfect and the dress was amazing.

I purchased my gown from the Mon Amie outlet after originally going in for a gown in the main retail store. My gown was a beautiful Anne Barge that was marked down about 70% but was still in excellent condition. The only real problem I had with them was when it came to alterations. The alterations woman we were assigned didn't speak English very well and I didn't understand what they wanted to do to my dress. I panicked a little until they brought in a manager who could better explain. The alterations were perfect, however. I would recommend looking for dresses here!

This place has so much to choose from and can work with almost any budget. I had a great experience at this salon and would recommend shopping for your dress here! There is a slight intimidation factor because there are very expensive dresses and so many to look at, but with the right salesperson, they can help you pick a few that will fit your specific taste and budget. (I recommend Nikki) This place is a well oiled machine, and I mean that in the best way possible.
I bought my dress, had the alterations and the pressing done and my dress was ready exactly when I needed it.

Mon Amie was the third bridal salon I visited. I was appreciative that I got to wonder the store and see what was available to try out. We happened to find my perfect dress and tried it and only two others on. My salesperson was very nice but there was nothing special about that appointment except we found my dress. The seamstress however was brilliant. My dress A-line from my wait down on one side and knee down on the other. She created the perfect bustle to reflect that angle the two different sides created. I couldn't have been more pleased that she took time to consider my dress selection and my taste instead of forcing a normal bustle on the dress that would have worked but was not as stunning has her result.

Mon Amie is fabulous. You do, however, pay a little more for the quality (huge private dressing rooms, nice ambience) and service (my sales girl, Sarah was great!) as well as the huge selection. Once you visit this place, it will be hard for any other stores to compare unless you keep going more high-end.

Occasionally it seemed that Mon Amie took on too many brides at a time. Frequently I was in the store and clerks would confuse me with other brides. Best to shop around for shoes, veils and accessories. There is a good selection at Mon Amie but it is largely over-priced and you can ALWAYS find the same product for a better value somewhere else. I bought my undergarments along with my gown and I immediately found the same items for half the cost at another store. Overall, a great place to find a huge selection of gowns at a very good value.

Loved my dress from Mon Amie Bridal! At first I was really nervous that they wouldn't have a dress within my budget, but they were very accommodating and I found the most beautiful dress. They have a huge selection, and the staff was friendly. They gave me, my mom, and my mother-in-law champagne for a toast when I picked my dress, and were great about scheduling fittings. I ended up getting my alterations elsewhere though, since they were very pricey at Mon Amie. Mon Amie quoted me at $800-$1,000 for alterations,and I ended up getting them elsewhere for $500. Overall, I had a great experience and would recommend any bride to get their dress at Mon Amie.

I found my PERFECT wedding dress here. This salon has so many to offer and they are all so beautiful. They have many dresses ranging in all different prices, low to high. Luckily, I went on a weekend of the Lian Carlo trunk show and was offered many incentives for purchasing a Lian Carlo dress that day!
The only thing about this place is that they are very money hungry and do not offer much payment plans. Some of the staff are very snobby but most of them are professional and nice.
They definitely nickel and dime you when it comes to alterations so I would suggest to do that elsewhere.
Overall I was satisfied with my purchase and would recommend a future bride to shop here, but just be aware of the downfalls

To be honest, I expected to visit this store and walk out feeling terrible about myself and all the beautiful dresses I couldn't afford. I first tried the outlet next door - this is a good option although I didn't find what I wanted there (I did find my veil there when I went back later). However, I found a lovely dress. It was a little more than I wanted to spend, but the store was great to work with me - since I was a bit late purchasing the dress I would have had to rush order it. So instead, they sold me the newly arrived store sample and ordered another one to keep for their stock. Most other stores would have just made me rush order - so I felt that although the dress was more expensive than a David's Bridal dress, I got a much better quality dress and did not have to spend hundreds to rush order.

The only negative is the price for alterations. I wish they could find a way to charge less. I had very minor alterations and still spent several hundred.

This boutique is one of the nicest that I've been to. They have a lot of variety of wedding dresses, plus they have them organized by designer and by price. I hated going to boutiques that had so many dresses that you feel overwhelmed. But Mon Amie is great because you can go to the price range you want and dont have to waste time. Some of the assistants are nice, some of them are not, I got lucky with the woman who helped me out. She was very funny and attentive. However, when I went back for alterations, the same person doesnt help you and she was kinda mean and snippy. The bridesmaid dress selection is the best I've seen also, but I really dont like the "usual" bridemaids type dresses, but if you do, they Mon Amie has the best of them. Cute flower girl dresses too. Everytime I went to the store, it seems like they had new merchandise. Now for the bad stuff: Everything is very expensive. Not necessarily the dresses, but all the services that go along with it like the alterations, ironing, even the way it's put in the bag so it doesnt wrinkle, all costs way too much. If you have time to look for a place that you trust to do those things, I would highly reccommend taking it to a cheaper place. On the weekends, you MUST have an appointment, or else you wont be able to try on dresses that day. That's about it. Everything else is great about Mon Amie and I highly reccommend it.

Mon Amie was the first store I went dress shopping in. Honestly, the service was great. My bridal consultant really took the time to get to know what I was looking for even though I was still a little lost myself. I actually ended up buying the very first dress I tried on. They were very helpful from beginning to end. I just wish I would have schedule one additional fitting since it ended up being a little big on the wedding day. Other then that I had a great experience.

The only real issue I had with the bridal salon was that I had ordered my dress and then 1 month later, they called to let me know that the dress was no longer available. It would have been disasterous except that they did everything they could to rectify the situation. I came back in and tried on a ton of other dresses. They worked with me to meet the cost of the dress I had originally ordered. The do have a very large selection, but I believe their absolutely lowest cost dress (not including those on discount) is around $950 and rapidly goes up from there. It's definitely worth looking and the people that helped me didn't apply too much pressure to purchase a dress right away. I would recommend from personal experience to shop around. Even if you fall in love with a dress, prices can vary dramatically from one store to another, so it never hurts to do a little research.

I was lucky, my dress that I chose was the 4th dress I tried on and was the only dress I picked out myself (the others were ones that the lady helping me chose for me). I'm really easygoing, but knew what I want, so it was easy from there out!
They were nice enough, my bridesmaid dresses turned out horribly, though. I loved the selection and I was able to get the bridesmaid dresses I wanted. The dresses that were for the people who came in to be measured looked gorgeous, but the ones who sent in their measurements had a HORRIBLE experience. It was just awful! Make your bridesmaids go into the store to be measured!

I bought my dress at the Mon Amie Outlet, which is in the same location as Mon Amie, just a few doors down. I got it for half off, which is great but you have to know that going in you won't get the same kind of experience you would at a regular (non-discount) bridal salon. The outlet is crowded and can be overwhelming. I think there was only one person working the whole store so there wasn't a lot of service, but that one woman was professional, friendly and helpful. When you are buying your dress discounted off the rack, don't forget to take into account the cost of tailoring! I didn't have a whole lot of time to have my dress ordered so I needed to buy off the rack. Otherwise... I think I would have spent the money to go to a regular bridal salon. I think the service and attention may be worth it and I did find comparable prices (perhaps because I wasn't as concerned with designer label as style of dress).

I ordered my Lazaro dress through Mon Amie, and the dress came a month before the promised date. I received a 10% discount through a trunk show special, and that was one reason why I chose to purchase from Mon Amie. My consultant Bella was neither pushy nor sincere - she just did her job. She showed me dresses in different ranges, but all within my budget and style requests. They did have a pretty good selection of dresses. All but 2 of the dresses I wanted to try on were there (Lazaro, Ines di Santo). They did not carry the exact Pronovias I wanted to see and no Melissa Sweet wedding gowns at the time. I'm mostly neutral about Mon Amie. They did quote me two different prices on the veil I ordered ($450 difference in price), but they honored the original price. I ordered the size I wanted, even though they wanted me to order one size up so I signed a waiver. I did get hollow-to-hem included since it was ordered during the trunk show.

Alterations were very expensive (~$560), but I did ask for a lot of changes. For example, I changed my dress to a sweetheart neckline. This also included bustling, alterations on the side of the dress, alterations in the bust area and alterations in the waist. Nancy is a sweetheart, though. I did like working with her.

I was going to give them a 3, but the reason why they deserve a 4 is because I did receive a free dress through their military event. As my husband is active military, Mon Amie has a special community event honoring those in the military. They were extremely generous during this event, and their staff were doting on each and every one of us who walked in. They also gave other freebies such as a veil, shoes, bridal kit, and prizes. As a result, I was actually glad to purchase my dress from them. I ended up not wearing the dress and ordering another one, but I still believe Mon Amie is very kind to think of our military men and women.

I fell in love with a randy fenoli dress at mon ami and purchased the size 10 "off the rack" version at 50% off. The lady who helped me told me that she could definitely alter it down to my size (I'm not sure what "wedding dress size I am, but I am a 0 to 2 in street clothes). She said it would cost $300 to do it through the store, or $100 to do it if she came to my house. Well, needless to say, I chose the $100 (which I shouldn't have, I know!), and it was a disaster. The dress never ended up fitting, the seamstress didn't do what she promised with the dress, and my mom and aunt had to sort of sew it on me the day of the wedding. I guess the moral of the story is that I should have paid the $300 so I could have mon ami guarantee the workmanship on the dress. Also, don't necessarily trust the people who work there. :)

They do have a good selection though, and are generally quite professional.

I purchased my dress during a Lazaro trunk show in January 2011. My consultant was very nice and listened to my request of only mermaid style dresses. Every other salon I had been to tried to put me in a typical "destination" wedding dress. My parents were unable to dress shop with me since they live in Hawaii, however my consultant allowed me to sneak photos and even Skype with my parents from my phone which are both not allowed by salon rules.

Purchasing the dress went smoothly. I was told the dress would arrive in late June or early July. July came and my dress was still not here. I contacted the salon and was told the dress would definitely be here before my parents were to visit at the end of the month. The week of my parents arrival, the dress was still not here and the salon had no clue where it was. The manager, Suzanne, was very helpful and contacted Lazaro to find out where my dress was and if shipping could be expedited to ensure its arrival for presentation with my parents.

My dress arrived in the nick of time and my parents were able to be with me for the presentation. However, the presentation turned into a fitting. I had planned on taking the dress else where for alterations per a friend's suggestion. But once they got me in the dress and started pinning the dress it was too late for me to go else where due to all the pins and the delicate fabric. I was stuck.

Standard alterations were $500 and another $200 to cut off the train! $200 to remove fabric is outrageous especially when I did not need the length of the dress shortened which was included in the $500. Also had to buy a petticoat on the spot for $79 because there was so much fabric on the dress, it would have cost a ton more to have all the extra fabric cut out. My dress had to be taken down from a size 4 to a size 2 or less. The petticoat fell apart every time I tried on the dress for fittings which they at least kept repairing for me free of charge.

I had a total of 4 or 5 fittings and it should not have taken that long. First time I went back, I put on the dress and the train was not cut off like I paid to have done. The seamstresses excuse was "brides say they want it gone but really dont mean it. its pretty you should keep it." When I said to cut it off I really meant cut it off! Especially when I gave you $200 already to remove it.

Dress was huge and kept falling down. She offered another excuse of "its a wedding dress. its not suppose to be comfortable." This isn't a matter of comfort...its a matter of the dress falling off and exposing myself in front of everyone.

Overall, the dress shopping and buying experience was good but the alterations was terrible. I do not recommend their alterations department and regret not immediately taking my dress to Mahtab. Would have saved myself money, time, and aggravation.

I purchased my dress during a Lazaro trunk show in January 2011. My consultant was very nice and listened to my request of only mermaid style dresses. Every other salon I had been to tried to put me in a typical "destination" wedding dress. My parents were unable to dress shop with me since they live in Hawaii, however my consultant allowed me to sneak photos and even Skype with my parents from my phone which are both not allowed by salon rules.

Purchasing the dress went smoothly. I was told the dress would arrive in late June or early July. July came and my dress was still not here. I contacted the salon and was told the dress would definitely be here before my parents were to visit at the end of the month. The week of my parents arrival, the dress was still not here and the salon had no clue where it was. The manager, Suzanne, was very helpful and contacted Lazaro to find out where my dress was and if shipping could be expedited to ensure its arrival for presentation with my parents.

My dress arrived in the nick of time and my parents were able to be with me for the presentation. However, the presentation turned into a fitting. I had planned on taking the dress else where for alterations per a friend's suggestion. But once they got me in the dress and started pinning the dress it was too late for me to go else where due to all the pins and the delicate fabric. I was stuck.

Standard alterations were $500 and another $200 to cut off the train! $200 to remove fabric is outrageous especially when I did not need the length of the dress shortened which was included in the $500. Also had to buy a petticoat on the spot for $79 because there was so much fabric on the dress, it would have cost a ton more to have all the extra fabric cut out. My dress had to be taken down from a size 4 to a size 2 or less. The petticoat fell apart every time I tried on the dress for fittings which they at least kept repairing for me free of charge.

I had a total of 4 or 5 fittings and it should not have taken that long. First time I went back, I put on the dress and the train was not cut off like I paid to have done. The seamstresses excuse was "brides say they want it gone but really dont mean it. its pretty you should keep it." When I said to cut it off I really meant cut it off! Especially when I gave you $200 already to remove it.

Dress was huge and kept falling down. She offered another excuse of "its a wedding dress. its not suppose to be comfortable." This isn't a matter of comfort...its a matter of the dress falling off and exposing myself in front of everyone. In the end, the dress fit with a few days to spare before I flew out for my wedding in Hawaii, however upon arrival I found pins still in the dress.

Overall, the dress shopping and buying experience was good but the alterations was terrible. I do not recommend their alterations department and regret not immediately taking my dress to Mahtab. Would have saved myself money, time, and aggravation. Read less

Mon Amie was a positive dress shopping experience for me. They had a wide selection and fairly reasonable prices. I also like that they hold frequent trunk shows; this is where I got my dress, got 10% off and met the designer. Above all was the sales associate who helped me: Belle. She was so friendly and not pushy at all. She is what made my experience there worthwhile and ultimately why I chose to buy from Mon Amie.

I had one of the first appointments of the day, which I highly recommend! I was able to try on a multitude of dresses and my consultant was great! We ended up purchasing it that day and we had a lovely experience. However, where the service lacks is when you actually come in to get alterations done. I came in for my first appointment which was the presentation to see my dress. Everything went well. Then I was never told when to make my next appointments. The only time I was told to make one was when I needed to pick it up for the last time. I had to call in to make an appointment to come in for my first fitting. Then when I arrived they told me I was there for a presentation, even though I'd been there 2-3 months ago for that appointment. I was lucky that another Bride was late for her session so they were able to get me in since I had minor adjustments. I finally came in for my final fitting to find my dress had been altered differently then I had asked. Luckily, the dress was still too long and they were able to slightly correct the mistake. We had my veil custom made and it turned out great! Overall my dress and veil turned out great, it's just sometimes the service is not it's best. Another good thing about this place is they are open late on Wednesday's so if you happen to work then it's a great alternative day to come in.

I did buy my accessories from another store since they told me they didn't have an under garment that went with my dress. I just headed over to David's Bridal and got one of their most common under garments to fit. I also bought a flower for my hair online for half the cost it was there. Also be aware that once your dress comes in they charge a storage fee to keep it and a cleaning fee if you want those two (which I recommend, but it's an added cost).

Overall, my dress and veil were beautiful and I still recommend going here to get your dress. Just beware that even though they say it's the biggest bridal store in Orange County, it does not guarantee the best service everyday.

Mon Amie has one of the largest selection of dresses with courteous staff. Once you purchase your dress it can be a different story no matter how much you spend. You may incur a storage fee if the dress is left there for so many days even if it is supposed to be altered at the store. Don't let them sell you a dress that might not be able to be altered to fit your body because they used the clips to make it look like it will fit correctly. Great for selection-you can always have it altered elsewhere

I purchased my wedding dress at Mon Amie Bridal Salon. I only had one problem - they ordered the wrong color lace for my dress and it looked horrible. There was some issues with ordering a new one, but, in the end, they sent the dress back and had the designer make a new one for me. After this episode, the customer service was great and I did not have any more problems. The staff from there on out was easy to work with and accomodating. I would still recommend this vendor but just make sure you verify what the salesperson orders for you. Do not just sign anything!! The alterations department is amazing as well. I would highly recommend getting your alterations doen there!

The sales person wase not very helpful the first time I went there. I went by myself and somehow that seemed to turn off the sales people and they didn't seem like they wanted to work within my budget at all. Although I know it was a pretty normal budget, $2000, that's not crazy, right? They offered very little help and not a lot of options at all. I went back later with my Mom and sister because they really do have the best selection around and they were WAY more helpful. I ended up finding a genius, perfect dress so the result was great but the first visit left a sour taste.

I made an appointment at Mon Amie because the designer I liked was having a trunk show. My mom and I went and worked with Vicki, who was our sales associate. She was very easy going, friendly, knew her stuff and was not pushy at all. I told Vicki about a specific dress that I had liked, but couldn’t find on the floor. She knew exactly the dress I was talking about – which was perfect, since I ended up buying it that day! Everything ran seamlessly during the dress shopping process. The problems came afterwards. My original wedding date, when I bought the dress in November, was July 8th. So, I bought the dress 8 months in advance of the wedding date. I was told it would take anywhere between 4-6 months for the dress to come in. However, mid-June rolls around, which was 7 months after the ordering the dress, and nobody from Mon Amie had even called me to tell me anything. Luckily, I had pushed my wedding date back a month. However, I hadn’t informed Mon Amie about the date change, so why hadn’t I received a call to update me about the status of my dress? When I called THEM to inquire about the dress and inform them of the new wedding date, they told me the dress wasn’t expected to arrive until July. How would that have worked if I had never moved my wedding date? Moving forward, I had to call them AGAIN, in early July, to check on the status of my dress, which is when they told me it had arrived THAT day….hmm, ok. Anyways, alteration appointments went well (they have a great woman who works in alterations), but we had problems with my veil. They told me when I came in for my final fitting, that my veil would be ready to try on with my dress. But, guess what, it wasn’t. I wasn’t able to try on my veil with my dress before the wedding day, because it wasn’t ready until the day I came in to pick up my dress and take everything home. I got a beautiful dress and veil from this store. I just wish they had better communication and stuck to their word.

They have an amazing selection here. You can definatley find something you want. My only problem was that i told them that I had tried the same dress on in another store in a certain size and that it fit perfect in that size but they pressured me into getting one two sizes bigger. After the alterations I felt that it never wuite fit right. Not like the first one did at least. then on the day of my wedding my zipper broke which I can't really blame them for but they were however nice enought to reimburse me for allthe fitting and alteration cost which I thought was very very nice of them . I know many people that have used them and they are all satisfied.

I definitely shopped around before deciding to purchase my wedding dress from Mon Amie in Costa Mesa. They have an amazing selection and the girl helping me was awesome. She listed to what I wanted and helped me to make my decision. I also changed my mind on my dress (I was deciding between two and bought one of them, then decided I actually wanted the other one). They were very accomodating with this and allowed me to do an exchange because I was within their timeline. My seamstress was awesome, listened to what I wanted and made appropriate suggestions.

The only problem I had was when the dress was supposed to come in. It was about 7 weeks late and I had to be the one to keep calling for updates. They often didn't have updates for me and kept telling me "it will be here soon" without any specific time frame. Luckily I ordered my dress 9 months out so I wasn't freaking out, but I think they could have done more to make me feel better about it.
I also got my dress pressed before picking it up for the wedding and it was well worth it. No problems with the actual dress and it fit perfect after alterations.

My wedding was in April and I purchased my dress at Mon Amie in October. I guess wedding dress shopping can be stressful in general but I felt like there was an added pressure by the staff at Mon Amie to buy a dress ASAP. I don't know if this is a sales tactic or a legitmate need. I was told after my first visit that I needed to get my dress in 2 weeks or it wouldn't get here in time for my wedding. I was told even if I did order it when they wanted me to, I would most likely have to pay rush alteration fees. My dress ended up coming in well before my wedding and I didn't need to pay any rush alteration fees, but for the months in between I felt unsure of my dress decision because I was rushed into it. Ultimately, (after a few quibbles with alterations) the dress ended up fine and I was happy with my choice, I just wish the process had been a little smoother.

Vicki in the sales team was absolutely amazing! She really listened to us and helped me to find my dream dress!

The store is a bit "outdated" compared to many other bridal salons and could probably use a bit of a remodel, but they still have a wide variation of dresses available to choose from.

I could NOT stand any of the alterations team however...I would have honestly preferred to have taken my dress elsewhere for alterations. It was very difficult to communicate with any of them, one because of language barrier, two I think it was age difference (most of them were over 50) and three they just flat out don't listen. It was very frustrating and nerve racking to go through 4 alteration appointments and it wasn't until the last fitting that I finally felt like we had gotten somewhere. Throughout the process often times they were very quick to tell me what the dress was supposed to be, even though it was not at all what had been promised. They also don't seem to talk to ANY other departments, and you'll often get several phone calls about the same thing from various people because of their lack of communication.

Bottom line, it seems as though they need a COMPLETE remodel, outside and in. They need new employees with fresh ideas and the ability to speak clear and proper english, they need a new communication system to ensure that no bride is being stressed by unneccessary phone calls, and they need to update their store.

On another note...I LOVED my dress and could not have been happier with finding it!

To be completely honest, this was one wedding vendor I didn't really enjoy "working" with. I am a SUPER picky person and we were SO lucky to have had amazing vendors, but sadly this salon just wasn't one of them. I wasn't expecting the "red carpet" treatment, but looking back I felt more like a profit tool than a bride.

I had gone back here twice and I don't know what made me choose to buy ny dress here. I think it was because I felt pressured to buy a dress. I had tried on over 60 wedding dresses total (at different dress shops) and when I told our consultant that, she seemed a bit annoyed and insisted that I buy a dress "now" to avoid a rush fee.

A month after I bought the dress, I called to see if I could order a different dress instead. The woman who asnwered the phone said "absolutely not," so I called a different time and my consultant left me a message saying she could talk to her manager to see if there was anything they could do. Because of all the back and forth/ phone tag, I figured the dress must be THE one and decided to keep it.

When my dress arrived I went back to try on my actual dress for the first time and saw my consultant who didn't even acknowledge I was there, she had just been introduced to potential clients, and when she passed me she completely turned her back to speak to the other women. (She could have at least said hello, even if she didnt' remember me. She had been so "friendly" the 2 other times I had come in there before...)

I also thought about purchasing my veil (they quoted $525) from them and getting my alterations (about $300) by them, but because I was driving over an hour one way to get to them, I decided to find places closer to me in Valencia. I purchased my beautiful veil VERY similar to theirs for $160 and got my alterations done for $104!!! (Yes, their prices are a "bit" inflated.)

One thing's for sure though--they do have a large selection of bridal gowns.

Let me first say that I love my dress and everything ended up looking beautiful at my wedding. However, getting there was rather stressful and I even ordered a backup dress from Jcrew because I was so worried about my dress and the alterations at Mon Amie.

When I ordered my dress I expressed concerns about the straps being too large for my shoulders. I've had this issue come up with dresses and shirts before and wanted to make sure before I ordered my dress. I was assured that it would be no problem to alter and that the alterations department "can completely re-make the top of the dress if they need to" to get things right. Great! I was thrilled! So we bought the dress. At my first fitting I was told that the alterations "couldn't be done" to make the dress look like it was supposed to. I immediately started crying and instantly regretted my decision to purchase my dress. Not the feelings you want to be having 2 months out from your wedding. At our next appointment we had a different seamstress and she had some better suggestions on how to get the top to fit. After a third fitting it fit, but still wasn't how I expected it to look. Ultimately, it was still a beautiful dress but was not what it was supposed to look like and not what they SAID it would look like.

My problem with this was the inherent communication issues between the sales and alterations department. Beware that they will apparently say anything about what's possible (alterations-wise) to get you to buy the dress - whether or not it's true. I don't know if I would ever recommend them to someone after what I went through, but they do have a nice selection of dresses.

My bridal consultant Nadine, and seamstress, Gloria, were phemonenal. Nadine knew exactly what would work for my body type and taste. Gloria was very professional and did an amazing job with my dress. The managers at the shop are very professional and courteous. However, a few of the receptionists and sales staff in the accessories area can be somewhat lacking in customer service. The shop's policies are very detailed and straightforward, so be prepared to read and ask any questions before signing all of the agreements! I appreciated the details!

I didn't love my experience here. I always felt like I was being rushed when I was in the store. At one point I called to see if I could try my dress on with my mom, who happened to be in town, and they told me it was "off site". This was a couple weeks before my wedding. No one had told me the dress would be anywhere but in their store. There was also a communication barrier with my seamstress and I basically ended up just hoping the dress would fit the day of my wedding, after numerous fittings. I do have to say that I loved loved loved my wedding dress.

Mon Amie's sales department is excellent. The woman who helped me pick out my dress was fantastic. The woman who did my alterations was also excellent. However, everything else was terrible. The young girls who work at the front desk provide poor service and are unprofessional. They understaff this department and leave customers waiting for 30 minutes or more for appoitments and to pay deposits. I talked to the manager and nothing was resolved. I was thankful that my dress turned out OK despite the poor service.

I bought my dress at the Mon Amie outlet. The employee showed me a few dresses and left me to help another customer and never came back. I pulled my own dresses and at one point she asked me to move away from the mirror so the girl she was helping cvould stand on the block. When I bought the dress she was very pushy about using their alteration service. I had to tell her at least 3 times I have a seamstress. I would only reccomend Mon Amie Outlet to someone who is looking for an inexpensive dress and does not require customer service.

I've always loved coming to Mon Amie Bridal Salon when I was almost close to choosing a gown. The salon is beautiful, A LOT OF SELECTION from many, many designers, and they always carry the newest collection. However, I ultimately only purchased my wedding veil at Mon Amie and I was disappointed my order was not what I it was when I first purchased it. I had told the consultant that I was working with that I wanted a soft textured veil, something similar to silk tulle. I was informed by her that the material is not carried at Mon Amie and the closest they have is "organza" and she showed me their sample. So I agreed to get that in a customized waltz length veil. The sample that she showed me that she called "organza" material was a soft texture of tulle in my opinion. So to my surprise when the order came in, it was just 100% tulle, not even close to being that soft texture I felt last time. Then I was informed by the girl who gave me my veil at pick up, that there is no such thing as "organza" veil at Mon Amie. So for about 15 mins, we were trying to figure out why I was misinformed. Turned out my consultant I initially worked with, didn't know what she was talking about. So in order to achieve the soft texture I wanted, they held on to my veil for another week to add some treatment to "soften" the tulle material. So I got my veil about 2 days before my wedding. Talk about frustration and stress. If I were you, make sure you get the veil you wanted or else you'll end up for a disappointment like me, or without a veil almost.

The first time I came in, it was 9 month before my wedding and though I felt it was adequate time to look for a dress, my sale representive pressured me into finding a dress that day. My sales representative instilled me with the fear that most brides look for a dress at least 1 year in advance and that I was actually in a press for time since they would have to order my dress and as well as consider the time for possible alterations and a few fittings. Although I agree that the process time would be lengthy, I still did not need the added pressure to find a dress as I was already stressed. After the initial scare tactic however, the lady (I forget her name! so sorry) who helped me with my dress selection was cordial and helpful and was able to stay within my price range (about 2000). Since this is a high end wedding boutique, my price range was actually considered low (as I was told, other brides were shopping for dresses that were at least $9,000). I had hoped that the sales representative and staff would be helpful after I had paid for my dress, I soon found out that their service was not as good a I had hoped. I ordered a swatch for the ribbon on my wedding dress which i was told would take a few weeks (10 weeks) but after three months, I was not given a phone call and had to call to see if my swatch was in. I had issues with the billing department as well, when my dress arrived, they had to charge the remainder amount to my card but they somehow charged it 3 extra times for the same charge and I was not able to use my card thereafter because of their error. When I asked them about the charge, they denied it even though I had an online record that said they charged my card three times. They did not apologize for their error or compensate for it either.

Aside from that the billing department and the sales rep at Mon Amie, I do however, have no complaints about their alterations department because I had the most wonderful person to work with! Her name is Gloria and she is excellent at alterations and is a sweetheart! I love her! She is the most genuine and honest person and she made my experience at Mon Amie so much better.

Mon Ami was great when I hadn't bought my dress from them yet. They even fit me in same day on a Saturday during a trunk show. The sales woman was great and very accommodating. The buying process was great..
Unfortunately, that is where the greatness ended. I was so excited to finally get my dress but they ruined that for me. Once they got my money they were rude, couldn't fit me in to pick it up on a trunk show weekend (even though I already owned the dress), and then wanted to charged me an outrageously priced daily fee to keep it there until they could fit me in. The woman who greeted me when they finally could fit me in (causing me to have to leave work early on a Friday so I wouldn't get charged the daily storage fee and still get to try it on) was also rude to me asking me, "Aren't you just picking up the dress."- "NO, that was the whole point of me leaving work early, so I could try it on before taking it home- especially after paying the price I paid for the dress. This is my wedding dress!" At this point I just wanted to take my dress and run.
I intended on paying the extra money to just have my gown altered there (I was quoted $500). After my experience, I decided to look elsewhere for alterations. When the manager came in the fitting room to see how I liked the dress and if there was anything she could do, she also asked if I was using them for alterations. I informed her I was until today and my horrible experience- she did not even ask for a further explanation and just brushed me off and continued to fill out the paperwork so I could have my dress. HORRIBLE customer service. Trying your dress on should bring happy tears to your eyes. Sadly I just felt angry and used the whole time, like I did not matter. My poor mom who saved up and paid for the dress felt bad too, one of the most fun and memorable experiences became such a headache. The dress and veil are beautiful though and a great price.

Out of my entire wedding planning experience, my interaction with Mon Amie was absolutely HORRIBLE! On multiple occasions I was in tears over the stressful experience they put me through. Initially, I had a very good experience. I found my dress and bought it the same day. The sales lady was nice and helpful. After that is went WAY down hill.

I purchased my dress with more than enough time. My dress was very simple and had always planned for the veil to be the "crowning jewel" of the assemble. I was instructed to not order my veil until my dress arrived at the shop. Several months passed, and once it came to the original delivery date, I called to see if my dress was there. It wasn't and to make a very long story shorter, I got the run around as to the whereabouts of my dress. I had to DEMAND a tracking number (it was coming from France). I was told that they didn't have one, only to find out through persistance and MULTIPLE calls that they could give me one. My dress arrived with only about 1 month before my wedding. After many phone calls and complaints I finally got the truth, the vendor was quoting times when I ordered the dress that they couldn't fulfill. Rather than Mon Amie be upfront about it, they hide the truth and made me stress out over the whereabouts of my dress and the reason for it being late.

To go back to the veil issue, before my dress arrived and with 2 months before the wedding, I came back to the store on my own because I kept thinking that I wouldn't have enough time to order my veil. I had to try on the sample dress to get my veil and luckily found what I wanted. I asked if it could be shipped in time and was told "yes no problem." I ordered it only to receive a call 1 WEEK LATER to let me know that the veil COULD NOT be delivered in time, only if I paid a rush fee could it make it... THEN after I agreed to the rush fee I was called back 2 days later and told they made a mistake. I was told the measurements of my veil were CUSTOM and they needed AT LEAST 3 months. I COULD HAVE ordered it months earlier if they had not told me to wait. So, I didn't get my veil. They were not helpful and I actually ended up going to another shop. The other shop owner, out of the kindness of her heart, called the designer directly to see if they could pull any strings (Mon Amie never even tried to go above and beyond, yet another shop did and I didn't even purchase my dress from them). The designer could not make it in time and I had to buy another veil.

I bought the veil based on the color of my gown. Finally my dress arrived! On my first fitting I brought in the veil I had purchased elsewhere only to find it was the COMPLETELY wrong color and clashed (approx. only 3 weeks to the wedding day). I broke down in the fitting room. It wasn't until my mom made a huge scene that Mon Amie offered to make my a custom veil in house. Which they did, but it would have been nice to be offered that originally rather than running around town trying to find a veil. So they made me the veil, but it was nowhere near what I had originally wanted. It worked OK, but it was an extremely stressful event. They also did give me a flower girl basket at no charge.

Also, on top of all this, they were shocked at how upset my mother and I were. They indicated that in their over 30 years of operation they had NEVER had a complaint! Well, my mom and I did research online and proceeded to bring in multiple bad reviews. They claimed they never had seen any. So here I am to assist and hopefully help any bride from having the horrible experience.

I am not very picky, I loved all my vendors expect this one and because of their attitude and horrible customer service I felt it necessary to write this harsh review in hopes to help any other brides. If you do use them - get a confirmation on the delivery date of your dress, order your veil early and STAY ON TOP OF THEM. I wish I had good things to say, I'm a very positive person, but I just couldn't let their behavior pass by... as you can see 3 years later I am still upset about the incident!

What a terrible experience I had! Starting with the dress fitting, where the store representatives spent half an hour discussing my body as if I could not hear them standing beside me. Then I place my payment, and they nonchalantly mention that the dress may not be shipped until a month before the wedding. Then, they do not give me all the forms to sign, so I had to go back later in the week. Then, I email to ask for an update on the dress and no one ever responds. Then, someone calls to say my dress has arrived 3 weeks after I ordered it (why didn't they tell me that was a possibility when I was panicked about the arrival date?). Then, I make an appointment to pick it up, and when I arrive it is in a crumpled heap. I was so angry that I refused to get my alterations done there, but my dress is such a wrinkly mess that I will have to have it pressed before I can take it to a tailor! And to top it all off, the price tag on the dress indicates the suggested retail value is less than I paid. I'm glad I found a dress, but I wish I had found it somewhere else.
