As a plus sized girl I wanted my dress to be unique and pretty. I didn't want another boxed dress that everyone else has from David's. Bridal Arts had my unique and pretty dress! They have been very accommodating and I am so excited to wear my dress on my wedding day!

It took Three times of going until I said yes to the dress. However I was on the hunt for an unusual dress, and they kept looking even after I left the first two times. Then one day I got a call from them saying they found the dress I wanted in stock, but it was strapless instead of a modest top. The next day I went back down to check the dress out that they found. That was the dress I ended up buying except I got it with the modest top and in champange.

I bought my wedding dress here. My dress was absolutely gorgeous. I heard about the Hostess House at the Portland Bridal show. I was pleased with my experience the moment I walked in. I made an appointment just it give me that special bride feeling. :) You do not have to make an appointment though. I am LDS and got married in the temple, so I needed a modest temple dress. I thought in Oregon that was going to be impossible. They had a huge selection of the type of dress I was looking for. The women working help me into my dress and was very professional I didn't feel uncomfortable at all. Then I saw my dress and I knew it was the one I wanted. It didn't even fit me. Since the Hostess House was my first shop. I wanted to see what other stores had. I went to David's Bridal and I just felt they were less personable. So the next day I went back and bought my dress at The Hostess House. They did not try to sell anything out side my budget.
My dress was perfect and everyone commented on how beautiful it was.

WOW! We had the best time at our wedding this past weekend! From the moment we stepped into the Hostess House, we knew it was where we wanted our wedding ceremony and reception. The planning was seamless and completely stress-free. What a way to plan a wedding! Merrily and Ron the day of were fabulous. Merrily helped us with planning every step of the way. The place was beautiful and the food was delicious. Our guests were so complimentary of the evening and the food. It was more than we could have ever dreamed of. Thank you for making our wedding so incredibly special. It was a perfect for us wedding on a budget, while still elegant and unique to us. I can't rave enough about it. I would get married there all the time, but of course only with my husband, again and again!
The Bridal Arts part where I found my dress has the kindest staff. I fell in love with my dress and and they took such good care of me and it the whole time. Lastly, our flowers were breathtaking. Evelyn, you did an amazing job. I love them so much.
From the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU!!!
Sincerely,
Nick and Ashley

I had the best experience shopping here! The ladies were so kind and helpful, and they listened to what I was looking for in a dress. Unlike some of the bridal shops in Portland that I visited, they did not try to sell me something that was outside of my budget or something that would not work well for my outdoor summer wedding. I found the perfect dress and veil at the Hostess House and ended up ordering the dress. I would highly recommend The Hostess House to any bride looking for the perfect dress on a budget!

They were so wonderful! We found the same dress in Portland for several hundred more and they even paid the sales tax! They really listened to what I wanted and gave me tons of great choices to pick from.

We could not be happier with how our wedding turned out. We wanted a low stress relaxed wedding and that is what we got. They were very good at anticipating our needs.

We had our rehearsal dinner there as well as our wedding and reception. Their catering service was even able to accommodate all the dietary needs of our party (gluten, shellfish, dairy, citrus, vegetarian)
