They were amazing! We found the same dress in Portland for a few hundred more and they even paid the sales tax for me! They really listened to what I wanted and they had 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)

They were amazing. I knew I wanted a Disney Princess dress and they let me try them on multiple times and narrow it all down and completely validated my final decision. I didn't end up needing alterations so I can't speak to that part of the business but other than that I had a very enjoyable experience there.

I wasn't sure what to expect when I came to the Hostess House, but I really enjoyed myself and cried a lot when I saw myself in MY dress. It's such a great feeling when you know you are wearing THE ONE. The ladies there were such a joy to work with and very patient lol. The whole experience from dress shopping to fittings to finally picking it up was wonderful. They are a small shop with a lot of choices and worth the travel if you live out in the Beaverton/Portland area.

Was Very surprised to find this little gem of a store. I had been to try on dresses at a large dress store, and though they have tons to try, I never found the one. Went back to the drawing board and found one I liked online. After finding that The Hostess House carries some really good designers, I went in to check them out. I had only tried on about three dresses before I found one I loved. They were really great to work with, and they also pay the taxes on your dress. Their prices were very good. Highly recommend.

The Bridal Arts Building offers SO much! The people who work there are extremely professional and knowledgeable!
When I first began my dress shopping I had a horrible time. The first place we went to I was told not to touch the dresses, was not congratulated on my engagement and the way the woman looked at me made me feel as though she thought I couldn't afford anything in her store and therefore I was not worth her time. I was devastated.
When I came to the Bridal Arts Building I was in a sour mood and unsure if I would find anything that day. But the minute I walked in I was greeted warmly and with a smile. Crystal congratulated me on my engagement and was very attentive to what I was looking for and what my taste was.
Only 3 dresses later I found the dress of my dreams! It was absolutely beautiful and I ended up on PDX TV because their dresses were being featured in the Portland Bridal Show. My dress was extremely affordable, something I was very worried about. My dress was covered with lace, sparkle, and had a corset like waist that flowed out like a ball gown. It was absolutely beautiful!
Driving into Vancouver is absolutely worth it and you won't pay taxes on your dress!
Good luck with your dress search!
