I went into Rin's for the Allure Trunk show and found my absolute dream dress! Throughout the entire process Rins Bridal was incredible. Rin herself did all my fittings and she is amazing at what she does. She knows what she is doing, is creative and very talented. Every time I put my dress on I cried tears of joy and my dress fit like a glove on my wedding day.

Rin and her team are so awesome! Being in the business for more than 30 years, she sure does have a lot of knowledge about wedding dresses! It took me only 2 visits before I finally made up my mind for my dream dress. They have plenty of selections and brands there, as well as sample sales. They were so patient and helpful, just make sure you set up appointment with them, so you can get undivided attention. I chose Pronovias because I love their elegant lace! When the dress finally came, Rin is such an expert in making sure your dress fits you perfectly after alterations. She understands how important it is for the bride to look their best. I am so happy I went with Rin to get the dress of my life!

Rin's bridal has fantastic selection, great prices, and very helpful staff. I purchased my dress and got it fitted here - it ended up way below my expected budget and looked gorgeous! Rin was very helpful, and because I work the same hours as they are open she even stayed late for me one night so I could get in a fitting. The alterations were completely seamless and fit great, even though the dress had a pretty detailed design. My only complaint is that the bustling hooks were quite well hidden - it took my poor helpers quite a while to get me situated when I was preparing for dancing. Great for the walk down the aisle, but ended up delaying the reception a little.

I bought my dress at Rin's Bridal!!! My dress was perfect and beautiful and the alterations were reasonably priced, and I was very happy with my experience at Rin's!
Katie helped me, and she's the one who actually found THE dress. She picked it out for me at the beginning of the appointment and I rejected it, and by the end of the appointment I decided, what the heck let's give it a go, and fell in love!
Katie was very patient and helpful throughout my appointment. It was a slow day (super bowl Sunday), so she let me browse for an hour and forty minutes! I've had other bridal stores shoo me out on the hour. Also, Katie obviously has great taste as she could tell what would fit my body type and style best, even when I couldn't. She was also really fun to talk to, which is surprisingly not the case for all of these stores... And she helped me take pictures, which really helps with the decision making process.
Here are more details: I bought a Marisa dress, and there was a bit of an issue getting the French lace. The factory kept pushing back my delivery date, and I was getting really worried about having enough time for alterations! One of the girls told Rin about what was happening, and she took over and comforted me over the phone, and called the factory repeatedly demanding my dress and not taking any excuses! It was really nice to know that Rin cared about me and my dress and had the clout to get things moving.
Not only that, but when we were discussing options for the delivery date etc. I told her I did not want to pay for expedited alterations since I had ordered my dress well in advance, and she said they would help me, no extra charge.
The store has a really big selection too, and Rin is also willing to try to help you with your budget, which is greatly appreciated!
It is not necessarily the fanciest or most high tech, modern store, but I really think the important parts of shopping are the dresses and the staff, and Rin's Bridal is top notch for that!

I called Rin's to see if they had a particular dress in stock. It is one of the few places in the bay area that carried both JIm Hjelm and Marisa Dresses, both designers I adore. I spoke to the owner and she said that she did not have the particular dress I was asking about in stock but would call if it came in. In about a month, get a call from the owner, dress is in! Score! She makes an appointment for me and I tell her that I have to try on the dress and she assures me it will be there. I get to my appt and discover that the dress I had driven up from San Jose to try on was shipped out two days prior. NO PHONECALL TO INFORM ME OF THIS! So UNPROFESSIONAL. I was LIVID! The only reason I came to the store was to try on that dress. I spoke to the girls at the store, who were all very sweet and nice.It was the owner of the store who made the appt and assured me the dress would be waiting there when I arrived. The owner was conveniently in Spain enjoying her vacation. how lovely and lucky she wasn't there to give her a piece of my mind. I was already there and decided to try on dresses anyway. I found a dress that I wanted to buy but there was no chance in H*** I was giving this store my business. BUYER BEWARE!I think as long as you DONT deal with the owner of the store, you should be fine. PS - store is a little dingy for the labels it carries FYI.

I went during the Jim Hjelm trunk show because I just HAD to try on a dress that I had been eyeing for the past month or so. I decided to take work off for half a day and go on a weekday since I knew the weekend would be hectic. The staff there were very helpful and attentive (could be attributed to me being the only one there) and they even allowed me to take pictures! The owner was a little bit pushy when it came time to leave and tried to get me to purchase the dress that day (which I need to think about), but it wasn't bad enough that I had a headache over it. I can't speak about browsing around the store since I only tried on what was provided at the trunk show, but overall, my experience was quite good. :)

Rin's Bridal & Formal Gowns is the best place ever!!! My daughters and I had visited 7 bridal shops around the area, from San Jose to San Mateo, and Rin's provided the BEST prices . We saved approximately 45% on our entire order. Unbelievable savings! And Rin's offered the most FRIENDLY atmosphere. We felt right at home. Also, the alterations went very smoothly. I would highly recommend Rin's. Gigi Sunnyvale, CA

Rin's Bridal has a wide selection of wedding gowns and a lot of different colors for bridesmaid dresses. They have good trunk shows and it is pretty easy to get an appointment. If you go, work with Roni . . . she's very accomodating, helpful, and patient. She doesn't pressure you to buy and she allows you to browse at your own pace.

Rin's was the first bridal salon I visited, and dress #5 was the dress, so it was also the last I visited for my own dress. I chose it because it was located close to all the people going with me to select a dress, and because it had good reviews. I have now visited several other salons closer to home including David's Bridal, House of Fashion, and Bride to Be Couture, where I eventually purchased the bridesmaid dresses.

The shop is not large or fancy, but it's STUFFED with dresses, everyone we've dealt with has been friendly and helpful. They accommodated all 7 of us in my party, letting everyone pick through dresses, try on shoes, and wander around in accessories. We were quite a sight!

I was quickly able to find my dream dress with a jeweled belt, veil, and a very elegant beaded bolero for less than $2000. When I first came in they assured me that nearly everything there was under $3500, and yet I didn't feel like I was surrounded by cheap dresses, which is great.

I recently went into to try my dress and accessories on now that they've arrived, but we decided to hold off on alterations until mid-November since I'm losing weight and want to make sure the dress fits well. Mind you, my wedding is in mid-December, but they assured me that we can get the alterations down in that last month no problem - perfect for my situation.

I would definitely recommend making a trip there. They may not ultimately end up having your dress, but if they do, it will be affordable and your experience will be positive.

Rin's was my first stop for a wedding dress. I chose it because four brides I knew purchased their dress there last year. I did not end up getting my dress at Rin's though. I just wasn't a big fan of any of the dresses or the environment itself. Rin was very responsive via email when I made my appointment.

Before walking into Rin’s Bridal, I had visited 3 of the other highly rated bridal salons in the Bay Area and was starting to see the same dresses over and over again so I was worried that I wouldn’t find the one. I explained to Rin what I was looking for and she showed me some beautiful dresses that fit my description, but then she also added a few specials dresses that she felt would flatter my body type. None of the other salons had dared to suggest a style that was different from what I had described. Rin was spot on with her style choices, which showed the depth of her experience. Rin and her associates continued to work closely with me throughout the fitting process to ensure everything was just perfect. She also had the perfect hair comb to complement my dress. I’ve been looking through all of my wedding photos and I’m so thankful for Rin since my dress just fit me perfectly!

Everyone at this place is incredibly nice and super helpful. They made me and my family feel welcome and comfortable. They even had cookies and brought out some watermelon for us. I happened to make an appointment during a trunk show and found a couple of really amazing dresses. Since I couldn't make up my mind they let me come back the next day to try them again. They gave me a fair price and worked with me on a payment plan. I'm glad I found this place and I'm very much looking forward to trying on my dress after they are done with the alterations.
