The ladies at The Dresser were wonderful. I was a little apprehensive after reading some reviews on yelp (after I had already made my appointment), but was pleasantly surprised on the amount of professionalism and variety of their dresses. They kept me under budget, and I found the dress that made me cry after only 4 tries.

I got married two weeks ago and still cannot stop thinking about my dress. It was gorgeous! And I am the type of person who regrets everything immediately. Every prom dress, makeup, event photo I look at and go, "Yikes, wrong choice". But thank God, I look at photos of my wedding and I'm still obsessed with my dress after two weeks, which is a long time for me. I had a friend get her dress here, so I went in and Tori was so helpful and encouraging! The price was also really good and everything from there was smooth. There were plenty of other wedding things that were stressful, so it was nice that my dress was a detail that went smoothly and easily. Every fitting was easy and every alteration that I wanted was executed flawlessly. Marianne and her staff were great and have a great business going and I hope to see it thrive. I can't say every bride should get her dress here because every bride is so unique and could find the perfect dress for them anywhere, but I definitely tell all my engaged friends to check out The Dresser.

Marrianne and the Dresser staff were perfect. I literally had been to 5 other shops and had tried on multiple dresses and found the one here! They have a very wide variety and most importantly Marrianne is an extremely talented seamstress. She changed the neck line of my dress to a sweetheart for me and fitted the dress perfectly. The dress and my veil were stunning and I couldn't be happier!

A friend referred me to The Dresser after I had a few disappointing experiences at other bridal stores. The first shop I went to directed me to the sample sales rack after I gave them my $2000 budget and the next brought me dresses which I fell in love with, but were in the 6K range. When I arrived at The Dresser, I was relieved to find many beautiful dresses I could afford.

Since I had dragged along my Mom and MOH to previous dress shops with no luck, I went to the Dresser alone. The sales girl who helped me was so friendly and didn't get annoyed when I asked to try on many dresses.

When I finally found the one, she took several photos of me so I could show my Mom the dress and seemed genuinely excited in absence of my bridesmaids. When I tried on some of the other dresses, she shared her honest feedback and didn't make me feel like it was about a sale, but an important part of my big day.

Not only is my dress gorgeous, but it totaled in at half of my budget - music to a bride on a budget's ears.

My experience at the Dresser was fabulous and I'd absolutely refer them to my friends.

If you are looking for attentiveness, professionalism and gorgeous dresses all wrapped in kindness and warmth in a staff, you have found the place. MaryAnne and Michelle made shopping for my dress like a fun night out with close girlfriends. Thank you both for helping me to choose the most beautiful gown for the day I tie the knot with my sweet man. I felt like a princess in your store and the day hadn't even arrived! Thank you for understanding what I was looking for and offering no more or less than I wanted. You have given me a beautiful start to a lifetime of great memories.
XOXO Leslie Nepsa (soon to be Mrs. Anthony Osburn). ;()

We were in a hurry to get a beautiful dress for my daughter's wedding, which was only 6 months from the day we started looking. After spending time online to narrow down our choices for styles and stores, we kept seeing The Dresser mentioned. Even though we live in south Orange County, we liked the fact they stock a variety of size and price ranges and have some evening hours during the week.

We were amazed to find my daughter's dream dress in ONE visit to The Dresser and it was very affordable, looking like it cost $1500 MORE than it really did. Because the store's owner is an expert at alterations, the dress was fitted perfectly to the bride. Since they worked with the bridal dress manufacturer frequently, they gave us a very accurate idea of how long it would take to ship and saved us having to put in a rush order.

On the day of pick up, the bride forgot the large storage bag for the gown after the wedding, and after a phone call, they shipped it out that day and we got it the next day.

We strongly advise you make a reservation at an off time to get the best service.

If you are looking for a great place to find your dress, try The Dresser!

Overall, I had a great experience with The Dresser. The designer ordered/sent the wrong dress, but everyone at The Dresser was so on top of it and once it was ordered the second time it even came in 2 weeks earlier than it was supposed to! All the dresses there are absolutely beautiful and in great shape.

I had an absolutely incredible experience with Dresser Bridal! It was only a month before my wedding and I was desperate. I needed a dress and I needed it fast. Caitlin (my bridal consultant) was amazing from the second I walked in the door - she was so calm, caring, and really listened to all my wants and needs. And she made me feel confident, for the first time, that I would find a dress that I loved (even though I had such a short time before my wedding!) The very first dress she put me in (which was her choice) I completely fell in love with. I had the "bridal moment" that I had been dreaming about and hadn't achieved since I started dress shopping. They were able to order my dress and have it delivered in FOUR DAYS! That is unheard of and miraculous. Marianne did an awesome job with all the alterations. The dress was just gorgeous and I felt so beautiful and happy on my wedding day thanks to all their hard work in such a short amount of time. I cannot thank Caitlin and Marianne enough. They saved my wedding day!!!!

I loved this place because they have a large selection of sample dresses. The winner for me was that I NEVER felt pressured to buy a dress and/or accessories. I bought my dress here and they never pushed veils, shoes, jewelry on me. They're prices are competitive and I definitely loved the relaxed attitude of the sales associates.

I recommend this place!! Couldn't of been better

We were going to a few dress shops on the day of my appointment and ended up arriving an hour early to The Dresser. They told me they were a little short staffed but that they would try to squeeze me in early and that we could look around in the mean time. We started looking around and within 10 mins someone was avaliable to help me. I dont remember her name and I feel horrible but she was amazing!!!! I described that i was having a vintage wedding so she helped me grab dresses that I liked and that we thought would fit my theme. The whole reason I wanted to go to this dress shop was because their claim is that nothing on their floor costs more than $2k. It was awesome!!! I wanted the perfect dress but couldnt imagine spending thousands of dollars on my perfect dress. I tried on a few and wasnt happy with any of them. The Sales Lady then asked if she could pick some out that she thought would be better. She grabbed 2 dresses and I loved both of them!!! I tried them each on 3 times and had the hardest time picking my favorite. I finally decided and love my dress sooooo much!! Every time i put it on for a fitting or anything I dont want to take it off. They gave me a 3 month lead time, but then called me a month after i ordered it to say it came in early because the manufacture had it in stock. Part of me was thinking she may have picked the most expensive dress in the store, but I was wrong. My perfect wedding dress that the Sales Lady picked out for me cost $950 including tax!!!!! I found out later that the Reps dont work on commission which i think makes all the difference. Since then I have recommended everyone i know to at least go try on dresses there, because if you dont find your dress you will at least get to experience real customer service. I live in San Diego but gladly made the trip out to get my dress at the Dresser!!!!

The Dresser was the 6th store that I had visited to find a wedding dress. Needless to say, after 6 stores, I had tried on probably about 50 dresses and had found "the one" here at The Dresser. I am a picky person and I just hadn't found a dress that I instantly knew was the perfect one. Until The Dresser! I went in on a Thursday afternoon, which I am so glad I did. It may be difficult to manage, but if you can get out of work during the week to shop, I highly recommend it. Shopping for a bridal gown on the weekend (at pretty much any salon) is just insanely busy.

I worked with Tory, who was great. She put me in a few dresses just to test my reactions and find out what I liked and didn't like. And then she put me in the most amazingly beautiful gown by Winnie Couture. As soon as I saw myself in the mirror, I knew!! Throughout this whole process, I kept wondering if I would know instantly when I had finally found the one. I began to doubt that it would happen and then BAM!! There was no question about it. I had found my dress.

One of the best parts was that it was within my budget, which was wonderful because I had visited The White Dress in Corona Del Mar the previous weekend, and they didn't even ASK ME what my budget was. I had to tell the consultant after the 3rd dress that was at least twice as much as my budget. Tory knew my budget and respected it.

It is such a relief to have found the perfect dress. Now on to other planning!!

I cannot say enough good things about The Dresser. From start to finish I was pleased with the service and quality I found here. They are friendly and helpful! They had a wide selection of dresses when I was shopping also. They give you individual attention and use your feedback to decide what dress to bring you next based on what you liked in each dress so far. I found my dress here and it was the only place I went. Being a bridesmaid many times I had experienced many other bridal shops and The Dresser surpasses them all with their customer service and options.

I had a great expierence from start to finish... well almost. I had schedualed the pickup time for my dress for noon the day prior to my wedding but when I got there they said they had it at 5pm which I knew I couldn't do. However, they were great and got my dress steamed and pressed and me on my way. I really loved that they had a great selection of plus size gowns to try which after calling store after store finding they only had 1 or 2 dresses I would be able to try on it was so nice to try on what I wanted. The lady who does alterations is knowlegable and professonal. All in all I loved my dress and if I had to do it all over again I would do it the same way.

Marianne and her team were amazing. They were a joy to work with and as happy and excited about finding me the perfect wedding gown as I was. The dress I chose was PERFECT and everything I had ever dreamed of at a great price, and Marianne was immensely helpful every step of the way. I wish I could buy ten more dresses here, but alas, only one gown for me. ;) I highly recommend any bride to shop at The Dresser - they are experts at what they do!

My fiance first noticed me (8 years ago) in my Homecoming Princess dress from the Dresser. I was so happy to find the dress I would marry him in at the Dresser.

I went to the Dresser about 14 months before my wedding just to browse. I found a few I liked but I wasn't ready to commit. I was told the next day their were going to have their crazy yearly 15 minute sale! I love crazy sales so I thought I would give it a try. My mom and I went later in the day when the line had died down. The ladies working there remembered me from the day before. One lady even picked a dress she thought I would look great in...well she was right! It was the perfect dress! Couture for 1/8 of the price. All in 15 minutes. While ringing up my steal of a dress I noticed my face on their brides wall...It was a picture of me as a bridesmaid in my friend's wedding. I suggested the store to her and she had bought her dress 1 year prior at the 15 minute sale!

I can not tell you how many compliments I received on my wedding dress! I bought my dress at the Day of Dreams sample sale about a year before my wedding. I went back to the dresser several times after to look for bridesmaid and reception dresses and received outstanding service every time. As the day got closer, Maryanne not only did alterations to a tea, but added on several embelishments and personalizations to my dress that made it look absolutely stunning and better than I could have ever imagined! Thanks again!

After searching for that "perfect dress" for my wedding, I finally found it at the last place I looked. The Dresser has a large selection of dresses and the staff there is extremely helpful in helping you find THE dress. From start to finish, everyone at The Dresser has been great to do business with and they took care of me and my dress exceptionally well. And the prices won't make you poor. They even helped me find my bridesmaids dresses. I recommended them to a friend, and she found her dress there too!

I saw a dress that I really liked on theknot.com, but that brand was only located at a few locations. Luckily the Dresser had the dress I was looking for. The Dresser was the 2nd place I went to try dresses on. Once I tried the dress on that I had seen online, I fell in love. It was so beautiful, and I ended up purchasing it that day. It did take about 5 1/2 months to get that dress, but I ordered it altered already, so it might have taken a little longer because of that. When I recieved the dress it fit perfect, and I did not need to alter it at all. The girls at The dresser are very friendly and provide great customer service. Caitlyn was the person who helped me, she was great.

As a larger girl, I wanted to find a shop that had every size of gown to try on, the Dresser certainly did. I tried on more gowns at their store than at any of the other six or so stores I visited before them. I explained my budget being around $800 or less and they just said "sure" and started pulling dress after dress, where every other place said they "had a few at that price" the dresser had dozens at my price range. The one I ended up choosing, I knew I wanted it the second I put it on... then I realized looking in the mirror that I didn't know the price. We took it off and she told me it was $630, I was stunned! and that dress was sold as fast as I could get my pen and card out.

They were more than happy to help with mailing my dress to Canada and then, once I had flown back to the area a week before the wedding, had it steamed and got me an appointment for a petticoat fitting within days of the wedding during the busiest month of the year.

They are very dedicated to my brides and every time I entered the store, even if I didn't have an appointment and just did an unannounced stop by to show someone my dress... they still remembered my name. A major plus in my opinion.

Wedding dress shopping can be exhilarating, overwhelming or a combination of both. Where I went wrong was expecting it to be like an episode of "Say Yes to the Dress." Where's the misty-eyed bridal consultant asking about the proposal? Where's the snappy gay fashion director? Where are my tears of joy upon getting veiled?

Needless to say, my experience at 7 different bridal salons throughout LA was underwhelming. It wasn't fun or memorable because of the consultants. They must all get cut from the same cloth because the standard MO was a mid-to-late model woman who was cold, impatient and condescending.

I left most shops realizing that the only reason these consultants made "sales" was because buying an overpriced wedding dress is a no-brainer, guaranteed deal. I mean, you don't have to be warm and fuzzy if one is hellbent on buying her $7000 Eve of Milady princess gown, right?

This brings me to my experience at The Dresser. The reviews, I believe reflect the high expectations brides have for warm and fuzzy service. All things considered and with my slew of markedly inferior service at other salons, The Dresser was fantastic.

My appointment was made a week in advance for a coveted Saturday time slot for me and my three bridesmaids. Caitlin, my consultant, was friendly, but rushed and frazzled. She told me that she typically does 8-10 appointments on Saturday (I was her 5th) and spends an average of 1.5 hours or more per bride. She was very patient and actively listened to what I wanted. After only 4 A-line/ballgown dresses, I asked her if there was something I hadn't considered that she thought would look good on me.

At no time did I ever consider a fit and flared, dropped waist gown. Never. Nope. Turns out that I look fabulous in dropped waist - fit and flares! Caitlin pegged me exceptionally well! Not only did she pull a silhouette I never considered, but she picked one in an unconventional color and fabric and I LOVED IT. Then she did it again and again.

Prior to Caitlin, there were no dresses pulled by consultants that I liked. Not one. At The Dresser, because of Caitlin's picks, I'm having sleepless nights debating between THREE dresses. That's a very good problem to have. The best part, she didn't try to upsell me. The first choice dress she pulled it $2000 below my budget.

Diana Fang, another consultant at the Dresser was freakin' awesome! I ended up working with her for the remainder of my fittings and bridesmaids dresses.

Tip for shopping brides: understand that these consultants devote a lot of time and many may not ever buy with them. It's a demanding job. But, it's the consultant's job to keep their feelings in check. If Caitlin was irritated, I never saw it. I could have been her first appointment of the day and I would have believed her. That's a quality sales consultant. So lower your expectations and sift through your consultants. It matters that you have a good experience with them, so give your business to those who earn it.

The dress was the hardest decision for me to make regarding the wedding. I don't own ONE piece of white clothing and hardly ever wear dresses or strapless anything. I think I tried on over 30 dresses from 5 different stores and finally found THE one at The Dresser. What I loved about the dresser is that I came in to actually try on a very specific dress by Martina Liana that only The Dresser carried. I was almost set on buying that dress too until my sales associate Kaitlyn told me to come back in 3 weeks to take advantage of their trunk show discount price. SCORE! A store that WANTS you to save money was a huge plus in my book. I come back a few weeks later when the designer is in the store and end up intrigued by a dress that she brought in that had not been released yet by her Essence of Australia line. I hadn't even seen the back yet when I tried it on, but the second I stepped out into the huge mirrored room and saw the train on the back, I was in LOVE. IN LOVE! I placed my deposit and knew it was the one. The Dresser would often call me to give me ETAs and updates on the dress, so I felt very well taken care of. Once the dress came in, alterations were completed within days and everyone at the store was just so caring and supportive since I didn't have any local bridesmaids or parents that attended any of these appointments with me. I was nervous doing it all by myself but the faces on all my family and friends confirmed for me that I had made the right decision. I've never felt more beautiful (and skinny!) than I did that day.

I looked at several boutiques in Orange County and found the selection and prices to be the best at The Dresser! I loved my dress so much, Caitlin (am I spelling your name right?) actually picked out my dress and I tried it on to be nice... it ended up being the perfect dress for me! I totally had that cheesy "this is it" feeling when I came out of the dressing room. She understood my taste and chose a great dress for me, thank you so much. We had some difficulties with my dress, getting the length right... the designers fault, no fault of The Dressers, but Mary Ann did beautiful tailor work to fix it and you couldn't even tell (she is so talented). I felt so pretty in both my dress and my veil (they have a great veil selection as well) and can't wait to share photos of my dress when the photographers photos are done! Thank you to all the women at The Dresser!

I had the easiest time finding my perfect dress thanks to the great people over at the Dresser. The staff is extremely helpful, friendly, and patient. Alice did a wonderful job helping me narrow down dresses. Any time I needed an appointment they gave me lots of options and responded quickly. In my experience my alterations were perfect and the lady who does them has a lot of experience and is straight to the point because she has a business to run and knows what she is doing, not to be confused with being mean. Their dress prices are very reasonable and they will work with you until you are 150% happy. I have referred all my girlfriends to this store.

I absolutely LOVE the Dresser! I went there yesterday to look at dresses and Allison helped me find a beautiful, perfect dress. They have a great selection of plus size samples so you can actually try something on to see what it will look like on you, if you aren't a size 2. She was very helpful making sure that I tried different styles on just so I knew what they looked like on. The salon is beautiful and kept very clean. There was no rush and no pressuring. Even with my mom's million questions, there was never a rush, eye roll, nothing. Highly recommended.

She was very helpful making sure that I tried different styles on just so I knew what they looked like on. The salon is beautiful and kept very clean. There was no rush and no pressuring. Even with my mom's million questions, there was never a rush, eye roll, nothing. Highly recommended. Read less

Simply the best wedding boutique ive ever worked with. I love them! They helped me find the dress I wanted VERY PATIENTLY with never a negative word sigh or a roll of the eyes. Even when my dress was sent from the designer very different than the sample. They fixed it no questions asked. I cant express how much I appreciate and love them. Thanks Allison and Dyanna!

I bought my High School Prom dress at the Dresser to headed back there for my wedding. They have great customer service and an excellent selection of dresses with a variety of prices. They were able to order my dress in petite length which prevented me from having to pay for hemming, so they are flexible and help you to save money if needed. They have a new location as of Spring 2008 in downtown Fullerton and it is much larger than their old store and is beautiful. Their tailoring is also great and very reasonable (many prices better than David's Bridal). I felt like they really valued me as a bride and not just another customer like I experienced at larger Bridal stores (I'm sure you can guess who I'm referring to). I highly recommend the Dresser for your wedding dress, bridesmaid dresses, mother dresses, and any accessories you might need.

I loved my dress! It was a Maggie Sotero that I found at this cute shop for only $500.00! I was hesitant to go in at first after seeing the big stores (David's Bridal & Alfred Angelo's) but I am soooo happy that I did, It was the best decision of my entire wedding, I found the dress of my dreams and It's true that once you put it on, you just know it's the one! The ladies were very helpful, appointments were made to work around my busy schedule, the dress was perfect on the day of, they taught my MOH how to tie the back up and everything! I even got my veil and crown there :)

I loved my dress, but I have to say I loved the experience just as much. We bought my dress at The Dresser because of the service we were given. Their selection of gowns is set at the perfect amount... just enough to have the right amount of options, but not enough to overwhelm you. As a bride that was very important to me. We bought ALL of my accessories from them; my headpiece, petticoat, veil, 3 dresses (2 bridal gowns + one bridesmaid gown to be worn at a party), shoes & the CUTEST couture looking clutch you ever saw! My experience was all that I had hoped for, from my first initial visit to my final fitting. Every need and desire was met. Marianne & Diana are the best around! You won't be disappointed!

I looked EVERYWHERE for my wedding dress. I had gone to over ten bridal stores! What I love best about this place is they are extremely honest, upfront, and not pushy. I never had the feeling or impression they were there just to "make a buck". Unlike a lot of bridal stores, they do not try to sell you on everything in their store. Their prices are bit more reasonable than other dress shops. My dress was less at the Dresser than other stores. Another store-Jinny's Bridal- told me, due to me ordering my dress late, that they'd have to charge me a "rush" fee...bogus!! The Dresser didn't charge me any type of rush fee and assured me my dress would arrive in time-came in 4 weeks. Another thing that stood out to me was that I was first quoted one price on my dress by a Dresser consultant, later Marianne (owner) said that was the wrong price but she honored what we had been originally quoted which I highly admire!
They do not overbook, which is helpful because some bridal stores are swarming with brides and makes choosing a wedding dress excruciating-it's not fun having to share a mirror with ten other girls. The staff, including Marianne, are not the very overly warm, fuzzy type but they are honest, helpful- and compared to some other bridal stores- they are knowledgeable and down right good consultants. Marianne is great with alterations, had no problems; was willing to change anything I was not happy with. Would most definitely recommend this place!

Overall, I had a great experience with The Dresser, mainly because I found the dress of my dreams here: Strapless satin with slight sweetheart neckline, fit-and-flare, corset back, beautiful asymmetrical beading and pickups. So far, it's a one-of-a-kind since I bought it at a 2013 trunk sale and did score 10% off. I actually heard about this place from a bride whose wedding I performed at. She had gotten her bridesmaids dresses there (they were long silver prom dresses) and while those were out of my price range, the bridal gowns were average price. My dress was about $1500 without alterations. I found the girls to be helpful and friendly, and although they did overcharge on one bill, I caught it and they corrected it and apologized, so no harm done. My initial sales consultant, Diana Fang (she has my name so that was easy to remember) had great, honest taste and was helpful in making my final decision. This dress really is universal and would look good on many body types, and while I originally thought about re-selling it, I decided to keep it in case my sisters want to borrow it or possibly future daughter - it's THAT great of a dress :)

My first experience with the Dresser was when I was looking for my own gown. I had fallen in love with one dress and unfortunately this shop didn't carry the line. Even though, I was "just in case there is a better dress" shopping, Dianna was very sweet and spent over an hour with me helping me through their extensive collection. After shopping for myself, I knew that this was the spot to get my bridesmaids dresses. I had six bridesmaids spread all over California and the staff of the Dresser contacted and coordinated ordering and payment with all six so that I didn't have to worry about it...but it doesn't end there. I went with the Melissa Sweet line of dresses and as beautiful as their dresses are, the company is as difficult to work with. Melissa Sweet missed the shipping date and Dianna and Mary Ann spent hours on the phone with the MS rep in New York tracking down my dresses. Fortunately, because of the Dresser staff's tenacity, my dresses were located and shipped overnight. When the dresses arrived 7 days before the wedding, one dress was made incorrectly (the top was a different color from the rest) and Mary Ann completely remade the top of the dress out of fabric hemmed from another dress. The dress ended up looking 500 times better than in the original fabric. When my bridesmaids arrived 2 days before the wedding, Mary Ann made it a point to see every single girl in their dress and made all the necessary adjustments that day. I can't begin to express my gratitude for them taking a potentially disastrous situation and acting immediately to save my bridesmaids dresses! Side note: This is a great business that is run by a small staff and not only do they sell the dresses they do all the alterations too, so respect their request for appointments and you will be treated like a princess!

The Dresser was my forth stop in the search for the dress, and it was there that I had the best experience. It did help that I found "the" dress. The store has a true wedding boutique atmosphere as soon as you enter. The dresses are easily accessible to all customers, and not in plastic bags so you can touch and feel the gowns. As you meet you bridal consultant, they ask you the basic questions, and with that, they pull a hand full of dresses to try on. They don't make you search and search yourself. Their service is excellent and attentive. They accommodated all requests and the owner was there to help assist and give her professional advice. The store is hands on and they provide a truly remarkable experience. I can't wait to got back for my dress fitting.

The Dresser in Downtown Fullerton is a great! They had a wide variety of wedding gowns to choose from (styles, price ranges, etc) and it is the exact sort of place I have always dreamed of what it will be like to try on wedding dresses.
I went with a friend to do some preliminary dress shopping in June 2011 and ended up purchasing my Sara Gabriel Michal veil during the trunk show. I went back in July with my Mom and few more friends, modeled a few dresses for them and ended up going with Mandy by Modeca (which was my favorite from before).
The girls at The Dresser were great! Caitlyn and Sara had helped me during each of my shopping trips and they were very sweet and lots of fun. After purchasing my dress in July it arrived sometime in October and I took it in for alterations in March 2012. The poor seamstress had to practically remake my dress because I had lost so much weight! However, a testament to her skills, the gown fit like a glove and was absolutely beautiful! Thank you!

Found my dress at the Dresser. Tried on a bunch of dresses that i thought i would like.. but nothing screamed "thats the one" so i talked to my consultant and she brought me some different styles... at first i was hesitant but i put them on.. but at the end of the day she helped me find my perfect dress! They took their time with me, and listened very well! Only thing I had a problem with was the prices, I gave a budget and they said the dress i picked would fit in the budget even after alterations and the veil... But at the end of the day it was 500 dollars over the price i had agreed too... They made some arrangements with me and helped lowered the price, but still was over budget... This place is small, but has a ton of options... I'd recommend this place to Brides, however I would also schedule apt's at other places too :)

These ladies got this industry down. They sold me a beautiful dress then walked me though the whole process. I had a few alterations last minute and they did wonderfully. Great value, I got the dress I choose for over $500 LESS then the other local bridal stores.

I came for the Day of Dreams sale, and found my ultimate gown!! You can't beat the prices, although be prepared (it's cash only!!) I'm still getting compliments on how gorgeous my gown was, weeks after the wedding, and jaws drop when I tell them how little I spent :)

I loved my wedding gown! This was the only place I went to for dresses and in one hour, I tried on around 4-5 dresses and just absolutely fell in love with mine! There is always someone helping you and they are very good with explaining everything to you. My only feedback is that if you want to check out this place (or any other wedding place for that matter), make sure that your budget INCLUDES your estimation for alterations with your gown. I did not include that so I definitely went over budget. I bought a beautiful dress that hit my budget exactly. Also, keep in mind that the alterations estimation they give you when you buy your dress is just that, an estimation! And it can change depending on if you lose weight, if you want something different done, etc. I ended up losing some weight and had to have my bust adjusted and that was a lot more expensive, but again, everyone varies! Great store, pretty good service, and the owner is so sweet and nice. She does all of the alterations for you personally. If you want to spend more than 30 minutes with her for alterations, schedule with her at the END of the day so she doesn't have any appointments after you.

I found my wedding dress at the Dresser :) My consultant Caitlin was a sweetheart. She asked me for what my budget was and only showed me dresses I could afford. After trying on so many different dresses at so many different stores, I found my dress here. My dress is a Maggie Sottero Kendra dress in Alabaster. It was a beautiful dress and I got it at a fair price. Caitlin even enticed me to buy my dress right then and there and offered me a free veil :)

A few months later, I received a call from Caitlin that my dress is ready! I went in and was happy to see my own in immaculate condition! I was very happy!

I'd recommend this boutique to any bride looking to buy a wedding gown - great service :)

This was the second Bridal Boutique that I had gone too and they were great. I did go during the week to try on dresses and there was no one there which was AWESOME!! I happened to fall in love with my dressing and they were nice enough to let me come back with my mom, sister and mother-in-law and try the dress on in front of them, since I had only come with one of my bridesmaids. From my very first appointment to when I picked up my dress, to picking up my shoes everyone has been great and very attentive. I would recommend this boutique to anyone.

After months of searching numerous dress shops, The Dresser provided the whole package; Beautiful and clean shop, helpful and knowledgeable staff, reasonably priced attire and great service. I was able to find the perfect dress for me and was treated very good by the owner and her staff at the shop. They were very good at communication and did amazing alterations to make the dress fit me like a glove. I did have an incident with a tuxedo rental place that the dress shop gave me a coupon for, and when I let the dress shop know how poorly I had been treated by the tux shop manager over the phone, the dress shop staff really defended me and backed me up; that showed me that they truly care about thier customers in this highly sensitive and emotional time in thier life.. getting married. I highly recommend all of the ladies to help in the dress shop, but Alice was my girl and she was amazing!

All the ladies were nice at this store. My alterations were ok, but they didn't quite do everything they said they would. I could have gotten on them about it, but I didn't want to labeled as a crazy bridezilla who complains. The finished product was pretty good, but had some loose strings sticking out from where the beading had either come off or had been taken off and wasn't put back. Luckily I had small scissors with me and my friend cut them off. My dress was still a little too big, but it worked out ok. If you are pretty laid back, you'll be fine at this place. They were a lot nicer than other salons I went to.

I did not have an issue here and no one close to me did but I had heard of friends of friends having a hard time to get an appointment. But that does mean they get a lot of business and are very busy so that is a good thing. They are a great place to find a dress, a beautiful boutique with very knowledgeable associates. Definitely would recommend and already have and one of my bridesmaids who is getting married bought her gown there!

Selecting my dress was easy. It was a great experience and the Dresser workers were excellent. They really listened to what I was wanting and helped me select the perfect dress. It was beautiful and reasonably priced. However after purchasing the dress everytime I went back for a fitting the Dresser staff was not nearly as friendly. And the dress was not altered at one of the fittings as it should have been. Don't make an evening appointment. The staff will rush you out so they can leave.

The Dresser was the second shop I went to for my wedding dress hunt. I simply showed the lady a few pictures of what I liked, and she quickly went and found me several dress options. The first one I tried on ended up being my wedding dress. Several months later, I came back for my fitting. I was fortunate enough to only have to add the bustle. I ended up also purchasing my veil, too. It was very reasonably priced.

It seems like most people have either amazing or bad experiences with The Dresser. My best friend had no problems with them, so I decided on them quickly. Finding my dress was easy, it was actually a bridesmaid dress that happened to come in white. The trouble started when no one had called me past the date my dress was supposed to be in. I eventually called and they said the manufacturer was behind and there was nothing they could do. While I understood the situation, I felt the way I was talked to on the phone and how the issue was handled was very unprofessional. In the end my dress got there, and my final fitting was less than a week before the wedding, but apart from that it fit perfect and I love the dress. Just be prepared to run into some attitudes while you're there.

I wasn't originally planning on getting my dress here but they had a Maggie Sottero trunk show and I knew I absolutely wanted a dress from that designer. I ended up buying here because of the extra trunk show discounts which were either a hem for $100 less or free petticoat, $100 off any accessory, and steaming for a discount of only $50.

The sales lady that I worked with was very nice and wasn't too pushy. I would've liked to have shopped a little more as this was only the fifth bridal shop I had been to but she was so much better than the other places that I had been to that I wanted to buy from her.

My dress came on time and the alterations were done well. My only slight complaint is that you can't make alterations appointments on Saturday so since I worked so far away I had to sit for 2 hours in traffic to make it for all my fittings. Also the price of alterations came out much higher than I thought it would be even with the discount. I got my dress as a petite size but I still ended up needing a one inch hem so with the hem, bustle and putting in bra cups, the alterations came out to $300! I know a lot of the Asian dress shops either in temple city or in Westminster give you alterations for free or a much more discounted price so in hindsight I don't think I really saved that much money by buying the dress at the trunk show.

The Dresser was a great shop to get my wedding dress. They sell affordable beautiful dresses. They have an adorable shop in downtown fullerton. The dress was a hard and daunting task for me and they had the perfect dress! We did have some difficulty getting a hold of them at times, and getting calls back. In the end they pulled through were able to do one fitting the week of the wedding and get the alterations all done for me with 2 days. I was an out of state bride getting married in CA. They were not able to give me lead time on when I could fly out prior to the week before but needless to say it all worked out just fine! And like I said lots of great dresses with good prices, and a great atmosphere I would definitely check them out!

Love their dress selection, location and environment. Their sales ladies were great, I felt most comfortable here and found my dress within 30 minutes. They helped me find one in my price range.

DON'T get alterations here, the lady (i think she's the owner) that does them is not very nice and didn't do a great job. My hem was jacked up and the dress was dirty when we went to pick it up. And its also overpriced.

My initial appointment at The Dresser was so fun. My consultant was Amanda and she made me feel comfortable and beautiful in every dress I tried on. After my dress came in I had my initial fitting. I had a different consultant (can't remember her name but she was blond and heavy-set), and she was terrible. She put my dress on incorrectly (too high), so she couldn't zip it (I'll give her the fact that it was snug and had to be taken out) but she had the nerve to tell me not to eat burgers or hot dogs or anything until my wedding day (I wear a size 2, I am hardly fat). Needless to say, I left in tears, panicking that I could not fit into my dress. We called and spoke with Kaitlyn who told us to return immediately to the store where she then put the dress on correctly and eased my fears by saying how great the owner is with alterations and that she could literally fix anything. And she was right, Marianne is an amazing seamstress. Incredible. In a half hour, she was able to take out my dress and I left feeling gorgeous and confident that I would look great on my wedding day. My score for The Dresser would have been a lot higher if I had only met with Kaitlyn, Marianne and Amanda (4/5). The blond haired lady really ruined it for me. I loved my dress though and more importantly, my husband loved me in it!

Although I did end up finding my dress here, it was a result of no help from any employee. I think the day i had my appointment there was a trunk show going on so i understand that it was a little crazy but there were no excuses for the lack of service i received. I had to wait 45 min after my appointment time to get any help pulling dresses and once i was in the dressing room my cousin had to help me in and out of dresses because the consultant who was supposed to be helping me was still helping another customer. We were pretty much on our own the entire time and i felt like whoever they were still helping was far more important then me. They also didn't really show any apology for the lack of service. However, they do have an excellent dress selection, and for that reason ONLY i would recommend this place to a friend, which i have done.

I found the perfect dress at The Dresser, at an affordable price. When I was looking for gowns, everyone was attentive and generally friendly.

However, when I came back for fittings, I noticed particularly that the front desk red-headed lady was very unfriendly and unwelcoming. Every time I came back, I felt uncomfortable.

The seamstress who fitted my dress was MaryAnn. She did a great job with my dress and made sure that it fit just as I wanted it to. However, I bought an embellished belt from Etsy that I wanted to be sewn onto the dress. They would not sew it on because I did not buy it from the store. I wish I had known this before I started the alterations at the store, and before I bought the belt.

Also - at the end of the wedding night, I felt a sharp pang in my leg and found a pin 1/2 way in my calf :( It hurt and left a lot of blood on my dress. So I would definitely recommend checking for this (probably in general) so you don't get any surprises.

Also - at the end of the wedding night, I felt a sharp pang in my leg and found a pin 1/2 way in my calf :( It hurt and left a lot of blood on my dress. So I would definitely recommend checking for this (probably in general) so you don't get any surprises. Read less

Overall, this place was not bad. I had my bridesmaids order their dresses from this location because they had the dress that I wanted for the lowest price. Simple as that.

A few things went wrong:

1. I filled out the form that included the style, color, etc. of the dresses to be ordered with all the names and contact info for my 7 bridesmaids. A month or two later, I called to ask them which of my bridesmaids still needed to call and pay for their dress. As it turns out, all of them did - because the shop lost my form. (Thank goodness I'm such a control freak and called!) So they had to refill it out with me over the phone.

2. My mom ordered my head piece through them because they had one that we really liked. They said they would call my mom when it came in. 3 months went by when finally my mom called them. Apparently, it has been there for a month and a half, and no one bothered to call.

The girls who worked there were always very nice and very helpful - but it appears that they were very irresponsible.

This store is only used to order dresses, no tailoring. Also, I only did my bridesmaids dresses and the head piece through them. This is NOT where I got my wedding dress, so I cannot comment on how they were with that.

Sorry this is long! I had my bridesmaid buy their dresses from The Dresser in Fullerton. The ladies at the front desk that helped us were great. All of my bridesmaids got their dresses on time. However, the problem with The Dresser is the owner/seamstress. She was not professional, and she was NOT nice. Because I liked the ladies at the front desk that helped us so much, I thought it would be easier if all of the girls altered their dresses at The Dresser. I was WRONG! The owner is also the seamstress who does all of the alterations. She was constantly grumpy and short with everyone. Also, she charges a lot for alterations. But the worst part was when she told me my alterations would be done for three of the dresses two weeks before my wedding. I was out of town that weekend (for the Bachelorette party), so she said they would be done and I could pick them up the following weekend. Well, she decided instead to take that extra time to procrastinate and she didn't work on my girls' dresses AT ALL. Then, she got sick on the weekend that I was supposed to pick up the dresses (the weekend before my wedding). Instead of being professional and hiring someone else to alter my girls' dresses, she made me stress out and wait to get the dresses. One of my bridesmaids was going to be in town on our original appointment date (she lived in Santa Barbara), but due to the owner's tardiness my bridesmaid wasn't able to try on her dress until two days before the wedding. Luckily, it fit...but talk about stressful! That wasn't even the worse part though...through it all, Mary Ann (the owner) was completely rude and even down right MEAN! I would not recommend going to The Dresser in Fullerton. If you want great customer service and good prices, go to Mariposa Bridal in Anaheim. I got my wedding dress there and they were wonderful!
