I was very satisfied with my experience at Trudy's. I chose my dress at my first appointment. I worked with Didi and thought she was very understanding and helpful. She was very easy to communicate with and was able to take my ideas/budget to find the perfect dress. My only slight judgement is that I felt pressured to make my decision right away. To be fair, that was partially because I had a coupon that stated I must decide by the end of the day. I just felt like pressuring people to buy is unnecessary when they are making such a huge, expensive decision. That was also the advice I had received from others, is that you can't go to Trudy's until you are sure you are ready to buy. After my experience, I felt it was a fairly true statement that I will advice my friends of.

I had an amazing experience at Trudy's. By the time I arrived, I had tried on about 30 dresses and this was my 5th bridal store. Michelle listened to what I liked and and came back with five dresses for me to try on, just like on SYTTD. I was absolutely blown away by her second suggestion that had all the elements I was looking for, but was unlike anything I had tried. Michelle is an absolute expert at what she does. For anyone to know all the inventory in that store is incredible. I am so happy to have found my dress and would recommend Michelle and Trudy's to any bride!

I was a little hesitant to go to Trudy's because I had read some not too positive reviews. Well, I shouldn't have worried because I had a great experience here. I think my consultant was Shannon and she was so friendly and helpful and showed me a range of great dresses all in the price point I gave her. I would definitely recommend them!

LOVED my dress shopping experience and the sales consultant, Shannon, was very helpful. She asked for the style dress I had in mind and my budget and made sure to stick to it. The dress I ended up buying was slightly over my budget but she made sure to point that out before I even tried it on. The shipment of my dress was very quick.

Bridesmaid dresses were also ordered from Trudy's and they were great- super accommodating! My bridesmaid found out she was pregnant after ordering the dress and Tami was still able to help us change the style an size of the dress since work hadn't started on the order yet from the designer.

Both of my really good friends found there dress at Trudy's so I wanted to save this store for last in my hunt that was dress shopping. I went to five different stores and the selection at Trudy's far surpassed any other store.

Leading up to the appointment I worked with Diana and she was more then helpful. I emailed her a gazillion times with lists of dresses i was interested in (I mean seriously like a 15 bullet point list) and she responded with the prices and availability of all of them.

When it came time for my appointment I ended up buying the very first dress I ever tried on, but the kicker was it was $900 off! They were having their sample sale and let me tell you their samples are in top notch condidtion. I went to a sample sale at another bridal salon and I was appaled at teh quality. The dress was beyond dirty, the feathers were frayed and scattered (Pronovias Benicarlo) and I couldn't imagine purchasing it even after professional cleaning.

When I completed my purchase I was so overwhelemd and excited I had no idea I had to take it home that day! I was not mentally prepared, nor was my storage space and Trudy calmly reassured me they would hold it for 30 days while I figured it out. I was very greatful for that.

If I had to give one criticism it was that Diana didn't pull any dresses on her own. I would have liked to have had one suggested dress, even if I ended up hating it. On the flip side of that I think she knew I was a woman on a mission and with my long list of dresses perhaps there was no time for a meaningless pull.

All in all I would recommend them to any future bride!

My bridal dress consultant was Diane. She was above and beyond what I had ever hoped to find in somebody helping me find my wedding gown. She was patient, really listened to what I hoped to find and brought out dresses accordingly. She also honored the budget my fiance and I had set. My dress was amazing and so many people told me it was the most beautiful wedding dress they'd ever seen- and it was within our budget! I would recommend Trudy's to any bride!

Trudys was my third stop looking for my dream dress. I was looking for something unique with a vintage look and not strapless. I had a difficult time finding what I wanted until I went to Trudy's. The first dress that Didi showed me was the one. She was able to find exactly what I wanted and what would look good on my figure. I had a hard time finding something to fit me in the bust and this dress was perfect. On the day of my wedding I got so many compliments. Everyone said it was the most beautiful dress they had ever seen. I ended up saying yes to Allure 9022 ( a champagne colored dress with lace bodice, tulle skirt, and Swarovski embellishments) I felt like a princess!

Trudy's was my second stop in my search for the perfect dress! I had such a terrible first experience so I went into Trudy's not knowing what to expect. As I walked in I was greeted by Didi and she made me feel at ease. She asked all the right questions and I never felt pressured. Unlike the first place, they really take their time in making sure you feel comfortable. After trying on numerous dresses, I found my dress! It was a great experience!

Trudy's Brides was excellent during my dress shopping experience.

History: I am a former employee of Trudy's...

... and as such I (should) know what is "best practice" for brides when trying to find the right gown.

-Like, don't bring too many people with you when trying dresses on...FAIL
-I brought waa-aay too many people and opinions with me. My dear consultant was patient with us and was good at making sure my voice was still heard.

-Don't go searching through racks and don't try too many dresses on...FAIL
After my second visit to Trudy's (and many other shops in between) I started to feel defeated. I felt confused. I felt like I'd never find the right gown and that I was never going to make up my mind. I had a couple gowns that I liked but wasn't quite convinced like others were. I nearly settled on one of the others...Just before doing so I started going through racks with my consultant. I pulled a number of dresses and we proceeded to try them on. There was one that I LOVED on the rack. However,....

-Don't try dresses on that are double your budget..
...the dress was double my budget and many sizes too small. We managed to sausage me in. and I looked terrible, but I knew it was "The Dress".
So, I ordered the dress without having any idea of what it would look like on me...

I followed the suggestion of sizing. I was told it would be there in 6 months. About 2 month later, it had already arrived. It sat in my closet for more than a year.

The dress turned out absolutely beautiful and I loved it. Thank you to Trudy and the wonderful staff.

I bought my wedding dress from Trudys, and had a wonderful experience. After striking out at other salons due to not liking their dresses or not being able to stay in my price point, Trudys was a breath of fresh air. I actually ended up buying the first dress they put me in! My consultant Didi was awesome! She really listened and was able to help me find what I wanted and find something that looked good on my figure. And she stayed in my price point the whole time! The dress came in early, and there were no hang ups at any point. If you are wedding dress shopping, definitely make an appointment here!

I hated dress shopping. Especially in San Francisco. Everything is designed for a size tiny and I ain't tiny. I went to 2 dress shops and scheduled a third in SF, the one between the 2nd and 3rd was Trudy's. Suffice to say I never made it to that 3rd shop.

I walked into Trudy's and was Amazed at their selection and that they had more than enough dresses that I could actually try on. Not just hold up and pretend about how it may or may not look. I tried on lots of dresses and had found one that I though was it, but Didi, the woman that was helping us thought she found the perfect one. Turns out she had. It is a Maggie Sottero and she is called Karena Royale.

I opted for their in house alterations and Marta did a wonderfully amazing job on my dress. The fit is perfect and I wore the dress for over 8 hours and didn't feel like taking it off when I was all done.

Thanks to Trudy's it was another piece of perfection in the perfect day that was my wedding.

Best place to get a dress! I tried dresses on at three different bridal stores. Trudy's experience is wonderful! Yes, they are expensive. Yes, it takes a long time to receive your gown after ordering. You need to know this going in so that you allow enough time. But the selection they have is amazing and can't be beat. The staff is knowledgeable and very professional.

Even though I live and got married in Orange County, I grew up in the Bay Area and my mom wanted to go wedding dress shopping while I was in town one weekend. I asked around for places to go and Trudy's kept coming up. I booked an appointment and off we went. My consultant, Didi, really listened to me and what I wanted. I had a couple of ideas of the type of dress I wanted. The more dresses I tried on, however, the more I wanted to marry the two looks together. Didi helped me find the dress that was the closest to what I wanted in my head. I didn't have that "bridal feeling" they describe and I didn't cry, but I knew I found my dress.

Even though I live and got married in Orange County, I grew up in the Bay Area and my mom wanted to go wedding dress shopping while I was in town one weekend. I asked around for places to go and Trudy's kept coming up. I booked an appointment and off we went. My consultant, Didi, really listened to me and what I wanted. I had a couple of ideas of the type of dress I wanted. The more dresses I tried on, however, the more I wanted to marry the two looks together. Didi helped me find the dress that was the closest to what I wanted in my head. I didn't have that "bridal feeling" they describe and I didn't cry, but I knew I found my dress. Their dresses are pretty reasonable in price and they have hundreds of options. I would recommend to anyone I know to go to Trudy's, especially if you live in the Bay Area. Read less

If you know someone that knows the owner or goes here frequently, I suggest bringing them. my mother-in-law came with me the first time, and they were very nice to me. When I picked up my veil, and was trying to get some help with 1) where the tiaras were 2) opening the case 3) prices, they completely shooed me away! They may have been ignoring me because I wasn't dressed like the other hot dressing brides that were in the store, but that's just bad customer service considering I had just purchased my dress there the week before.

Trudy was nice. But when I came back on a less busy day to try and find a head piece/tiara/etc. again, she wasn't there and ONCE AGAIN, NO ONE would come help me.

Let me start by saying before going to Trudy's I had been to 6 other bridal stores, and I was over dress shopping. I had horrible customer service at some places and some had very little product for me to try on. So walking into Trudy's I had very low expectations, and was not excited to go. However when I walked in my dress specialist was ready and waiting for me and she took me over to sit down and actually talked to me first about what I was looking for and what I wanted to avoid. None of the other salons did this, they just started pulling dresses for me to try on... So it was already a good start at Trudy's. I only tried on maybe 5 dresses rather then 10-15 that I had at other salons. The third dress I tried on was amazing, but completely not what I thought I wanted or would look good in, but my mom and best friend almost broke down when I came out in it. After the 5th dress my dress specialist asked if I wanted to try on dress #3 again and I said yes, and when I walked out all glammed up we knew that was the dress. They let me discuss with me mom, without being pushy and said don't worry either way.
We ended up getting the dress that day, and I couldn't have been happier. They provided me with alteration places closer to my home, which my mom loved. Couldn't have been happier with Trudy's.

I had a wonderful experience at Trudy’s Brides! Shannon was my consultant and she did a great job and making me feel comfortable and excited throughout the process. I was reassured by her obvious experience in the wedding dress industry as she seemed to know what would/wouldn’t look good. I always get nervous when someone says that everything looks great. The atmosphere in Trudy’s is very comfortable and personable. They have hundreds if not thousands of dresses to choose from. You get your own area to try on your dresses with whomever you bring with you, unlike some places where you walk out and stand in front of everyone.
I ended up finding my dress somewhere else but coming back to Trudy’s to buy it because I was so pleased with my experience there and wanted them to get the sale instead. Because Trudy’s has such a high volume of business they have strong connections with the designers, as a result they are quick to know about price changes. When I went in to buy my dress, the price had gone up $200 from when I had looked at it the week prior elsewhere. Apparently the price had JUST changed. Shannon took care of it and gave me the old price, which made me happy because I didn’t want to have to go somewhere else to buy it. That confirmed for me that they really care about their customers and their reputation and it’s not just about the money. In some of the other stores I had visited, I always felt like I was getting “sold” and that they didn’t really care about me as a customer, just making the sale. I never got that feeling at Trudy’s.
I was pleasantly surprised when I got a handwritten note from Trudy the week after I purchased my dress, thanking me for shopping with them. That small detail made a big difference for me, as they could have easily just sent out a form letter or thank you. It’s that type of service that makes people come back. I would absolutely recommend Trudy’s for anyone looking for a wedding dress!

I bought my wedding gown here at Trudy's along with ordering all 6 of our bridesmaid’s gowns here and my mother in law found her dress here. Their selection is great! My dress was amazing! And the staff when we were trying things on and looking to buy was also very helpful and friendly. However, once we ordered the dresses things went downhill... the maid's gowns came in with the wrong color sash and there wasn't enough time to order new dresses with the right color so we were stuck either living with it or the offered that if I went out and bought the fabric they would have a tailor sow on new ones. As a working bride, I didn't have time to go find fabric and re-collect all my girls dresses to bring back to the shop so, we lived with the color. Secondly, the dresses weren't ordered with the right measurements. I would be very careful when ordering from them that you have taken all of your own measurements and double check them with the order and the dress that you are choosing. We choose a dress that has an empire waist sash that was very tight fitting and no one in the store warned my girls about this or even offered to take this measurement when they ordered their dresses. So every one of my girls had to have their dress let out in that area along with adjusting their hem, which was an added cost for them. After talking to the manager of the store about these problems they were very helpful and reimbursed my girls a small amount for all the extra alterations that they had to get. I would just recommend that you make sure to go into this store fully understanding the process of buying a gown and needing future alterations and double check everything.

As a plus size bride, I did not think it was possible. But, I found my dress that same day and for a great price. We also came back a few day later to purchase my mom's dress.

If I could give Trudy's 10 stars, I would! This is a 3 part review so bear with me. The level of service is by far stellar and above expectations!

I had an appt. here yesterday to try on bridal dresses. I was greeted right away and informed that the consultant I requested specifically was out sick so instead I was working with Denise. At first I was bummed but not for long. What a GEM! She made me feel right at home and my entourage as well. She was so kind and really understood what I was looking for and what I didn't like. She didn't rush me at all and even grabbed water for me when I got a lil hot. LOL

While in one dress that we all seemed to like, my Mom asked Denise if she'd put a veil on me "just to see" and Denise said, "of course!" Once the veil was on - that did it. That was the moment that it all clicked and I got that typical 'moment.' Tissues were on hand right away too.

After a few other dresses that weren't winning me over - Denise told me we had time for one more dress. It could be a new dress or we could try one on again a 2nd time. We tried 'the one' on a 2nd time and this just reassured all of us that this was it. We will be ordering my dress very soon!!!

*I was at Trudy's last August while shopping for my friend's wedding dress and the service was the same - superb. We worked with Lelani (consultant requested for my appt.)

*And there again 2 weeks ago for their Mother/Daughter event. Which my Sister, Mom, and I truly enjoyed our time there and our shopping experience with Tori (sp?).

Even though my wedding was in San Diego, I went up north to go to Trudy's with my mom, mother-in-law, and sister (both my husband's and my families are around the bay area). We had heard great things, and my sister always got her prom dresses here at the party dress shop. The attendant was very responsive to what I wanted, and I tried on about 6 dresses. I am not usually a decisive person, but for some reason, I knew my dress when I saw it. It was quick and easy! And very affordable. Trudy's has a very extensive selection for all price ranges, and I found one at the lower end of my price range that was beautiful and just for me. I think the designer was Marisa. Simple, strapless A-line covered in lace detail. With a train, which I never thought I would like!

You have to make sure that you have a flexible schedule, because you can't walk in to try dresses on with out an appointment.

The lady assisting me with gowns was great! She looked at the pictures I had for inspiration, and tried to find gowns in stock that would be similar. She even did some quick work to show me how we could alter a plain satin dress to fit the idea I had in my head. She was really working hard that day, but even so, I never felt like she wanted anything but to find me just the right dress.

It does seem like they sized me wrong - they suggested I order a size larger than what I did order, and when the dress came in, it was still too big! Thank goodness I didn't follow their advice. My seamstress said any bigger, and it would have been extremely difficult to alter (i.e., much more expensive to alter), as the bust would have been too wide.

The dress came faster than expected, which I appreciated. They were good about calling back, and I never had to wait around for my appointments.

I had an amazing experience at Trudy's! My consultant was Shannon and she was super sweet. My mom and I had just come from a different bridal salon and had a very mediocre experience. Shannon sat down with us first and asked about the wedding and my overall vision. She asked what kind of style the wedding would have and what kind of dresses I'm drawn to. She really considered everything about the wedding in order to help pull the right dresses.

I had already fallen madly in love with a dress in a magazine, so we tried that on first and that was it! She was nice enough to let me stand there for almost an hour in the first and only dress I tried on. She was so helpful with trying on veils and hair flowers. We tried on jewelry too. I honestly felt like a princess! It was the experience I had always imagine for myself and my mom to share.

We ordered the dress that day and they said it would take 4-6 months for it to come in. We got it in 3! I couldn't have been happier with my Trudy's experience. We ordered bridesmaid dresses and MOB dresses there too. Highly recommended!

Trudy's was the first place I went to try on wedding gowns and I did end up purchasing my first wedding gown here. I say my first because I ended up purchasing a second one somewhere else.

I felt pressured into buying my dress, my consultant told me that I only had a few more months before they were going to discontinue it and if it didn't get discontinued the price would go up. I also found this dress at another salon cheaper and they told me they wouldn't match the price because they didn't want to be know as bargainers. Trudy's did end up giving me $100 credit to be used in store on accessories.

If you want a fun relaxing ecperience Trudy's is not the place to go. I felt pressured and rushed.

My mom and I went to Trudy's "just to look." I was 100% sure I wanted a halter style but went with my heart and my parents bought me the most drop-dead incredible dress I have ever seen. That dress was less than $900 and I felt I was never treated differently than another bride who may be spending 10-20 times more than us. The staff was informative, prompt and helpful - they gave me a huge swatch of fabric so I could proceed to match that shade of ivory. Oh, and they let you take as many photos as you want! The staff in bridal are honest (re: style + body type), not-pushy, flexible and pleasant.
The staff in the bridesmaid section were energetic and enthusiastic yet, a bit scattered and, at times, unorganized, ie: they gave the wrong dresses to the bridesmaids. They were willing to keep bringing piles of dresses to the maids & my mom.
Overall, I was thrilled with my purchase there.

Trudy's was awesome! Cathy was a great "sales lady" and made me feel completely comfortable. I DO NOT suggest having a "Say Yes To The Dress" moment and having 7++ people with you while trying on dresses. WAY TOO many people, opions, and attitudes. I went with my two best girlfriends and narrowed it down to 2 dresses (after only trying on like 5 - be open to suggestions from the sales staff, they know body types, what works what doesn't). I went to David's Bridal after being at Trudy's, just to compare, because I had an appt, but wow what a difference in the quality of dresses, the staff, the store set up, etc... We went back to Trudy's the same day, called my Mom to meet for her opinion (got to ask if she is paying :) and BOUGHT A DRESS. I was so happy to not have this ordeal drag out and I firmly believe it's because the way Trudy's conducts it's business. Also, they have a great selection of other dresses and accessories.

Trudy's was wonderful to work with. I bought my dress there as did my bridesmaids. My consultant did a wonderful job listening to what I wanted and staying in my budget. The only drawback to Trudy's was how popular they are. This made scheduling appointments a little difficult. Be sure plan ahead but I guess this would be true for most bridal stores.

I had mixed feeling about Trudy's. I had heard SO many wonderful things about buying a wedding dress there. And when I was shopping and trying on dresses, that ABSOLUTELY was true. Shannon, my consultant, was amazing and I love love love my dress. But everything after placing the order was less to be desired. I came in for my first fitting and it fit like a glove, but there were a few minor imperfections on the dress. I'm pretty laid back, so as long as they were attended to, that's all that mattered and i was happy as a clam. The consultant was a little irritating that day (different lady) I felt like I was "bothering" her with my petty questions about tacking, and loose threads. She brought over a seamstress, or so she claimed to be promising to fix everything. Then weeks go by and I hear nothing. I call, and they have NO record of anything needing to be done. So I have to drive all the way back there by 6pm to meet with the seamstress who is not available on weekends and always leaves at 6pm. Mind you I work in South San Francisco and don't get off until 5pm. So this additional trip is a little bit of a hassel. So I manage to make it, for the 3rd appointment, I find out that there was no seamstress there the day I came in for my first fitting. "Who the hell was that other lady and why did that consultant bring her over." Very annoying. So the head seamstress promised me she would fix everything and press it so I can make sure there's no more mistakes. So a week goes by I come back in for a 4th time on the seamstress's schedule. everything is fixed, but it is not pressed... no matter I just wanted it to be done and over with. So my advice for brides is to ONLY meet with the HEAD seamstress and no one else with addressing dress issues.

Trudy's provides the whole shibang as far as your bridal gown, bridal party's attire, and alterations. The service was great but the pricing was certainly on the high side. Since I special ordered my gown (Alfred Angelo 1516), I wanted to make sure everything was absolutely perfect and opted for the higher price tag. However, for my bridesmaids, we ordered from www.houeofbrides.com instead since it was much cheaper and Trudy was unwilling to come anywhere close to their price.

I really loved Trudy's! Not only did I get my main wedding dress there, I caved and went back a month before the wedding and bought a "reception" dress, and I am SO glad that I did! My first one was HOT and being able to change into a much lighter gown with no train or bustle to deal with was fabulous. We also bought the bridesmaid dresses there! I loved the experience, all the people that helped me and my girls out, and the overall feel of it all. But of course, it will cost ya! I spent more than we had planned on the wedding dress, but it was exactly what I wanted! I just wish they would have prepared me for the future visit to the alterations lady I used. The dress didn't fit me right, but lost the weight to fix it. It worked out...but wish they were more front with you about the additional costs...it was more than what they said it would be.
But nonetheless, I love them!

Trudy's was amazing and so helpful. I found the perfect dress and it was so easy to work with them. My dress might not be able to come in until the week before the wedding. But they told me to keep calling them and seeing if the order could be rushed. So, I called and they kept me calm and assured me it would be in on time. Then the dress came in 3 weeks early! It worked out perfect. When I went with my mom to get the dress, Trudy her self helped us find the perfect hair accessory. Thanks for everything Trudy!

I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised when I came to Trudy's. When I was researching places to go to find my dress, Trudy's was last on my list. I read reviews on Yelp and saw that so many brides had experienced bad customer service. And I'm huge on customer service. When looking for the "one" I had gone to 3 stores already and was ready to call it a day. Then my sister asked "didn't you want to go to Trudy's?" I really didn't want to, but then my mom said, "let's go." So we did. I had made an appointment just in case which was good because they were a bit busy. My dress consultant was Tammy Bailey. She's what made my experience there so worth it. As soon as we got to the dressing area, she asked what kind of dress I was looking for, what I didn't want, and what my pricepoint is. Then off she went to look for dresses. She pulled exactly what I had described and all within my price range. She had also pulled a dress that I wasn't quite looking for but looked beautiful so I tried it on anyway. Beautiful dresses! I had cried with one dress, but I still didn't make the decision that day. After a few weeks, after I had pretty much decided on what dress I wanted, we went back and this time I took my dad. I tried on a few more dresses just to make sure and then put on the one I wanted. The look on my dad's face sealed the deal. And it was the dress that Tammy had pulled that was a style that I wasn't exactly looking for :) But I knew it was the one, there was something about it that I couldn't let go on.
So anyway, reviews are very helpful when trying to decide whether or not to check it out. I'm glad that I went to Trudy's despite the many negative reviews I read on Yelp. Sometimes you just need to take a chance. I'm very glad that I did.
Trudy's did a wonderful job. If you can, ask for Tammy Bailey. She was really helpful and a true sweetheart. She knows her job and does it well.
Trudy's has a big selection of dresses in many different price ranges. AND they have gowns in plus sizes too :) DO make an appointment because they do get busy. Good luck in finding "the dress."

Trudy's did a wonderful job. If you can, ask for Tammy Bailey. She was really helpful and a true sweetheart. She knows her job and does it well.
Trudy's has a big selection of dresses in many different price ranges. AND they have gowns in plus sizes too :) DO make an appointment because they do get busy. Good luck in finding "the dress." Read less

I grew up walking by trudys as a little girl always dreaming that I'd buy my dress there. I was so excited that day came about and I found my dream dress with the help of the wonderful staff. The only thing I didn't like was the alterations department. They were slow to return calls and the attitude they put off was poor. Other than that I'm happy to have found my dress here.

You know, I have been married before and I wanted an elegant evening gown in lieu of a tradtional white or off white gown. I loved the dress I chose but they didn't size me properly and they charged me for the size they ordered for me which was extra. Then I had to pay an additional $200 at the last minute to get the dresss taken down FOUR SIZES!!! Not happy. :(

The dress came in on time and they were always very helpful when I came in for accessories and veil. It is also nice to have Trudy on the floor to give opinions on dresses and such.

I love trudys! I walked into the store (with an appointment of course) and the girls there helped me right away. Sat me down with my entourage I brought with me (haha) and got to work. I told them some things that I wanted and some things that I didn't want. They brought out multiple dresses and I put on my dress and that was it!! They were honest and caring staff. Trudy herself even came over and gave here opinion and of course she knows what shes doing so it all mattered! I loved trudys so much I even got all the bridesmaids dresses there and my dress altered across the way. I would highly recommend them for any dress for any occassion!!

I went to Trudy's because everyone I knew seemed to have gone there to get their dress. They worked well with me to find the dress I was looking for in my price range. I appreciated that they did not try to up sell me on a dress that was more money. My dress was beautiful and I ended up picking my bridesmaids dresses from them as well because they give a 15% discount on other dresses if you buy your wedding gown there. It may not be as fancy as other places but they have tons of dresses at every price point and every style and is a one stop shop for wedding attire.

I looked for a dress in so many places and when i stopped at trudy's I had found my dress. If it wasn't for Marika the the overall rating would have gone down. But Marika was a great person to work with. I gave her a vision of what i had wanted. she pulled a dress from Casa blanca and it was the one! I loved it.!

I would go with the person you can get along with because if the sales lady isnt friendly don't bother.

But the only think that bothered me was that the vail came in later then the dress. they claim that they had to special order it from spain and it was on back order. lucky we lied about my wedding date so it got there a week before my pretend wedding date. I cant imagine if it was really that close to my wedding date and they finally decide to have it ready a week before my pretend wedding date.

But Marika was the best at what she does! =)

Trudy's Brides deserves 5 stars for sure!!! I had only a little over 2 months to find me a wedding dress and I just so happen went to Trudy's Brides on a weekend when they were having a Bridal Show in the Pruneyard. I didn't have an appointment that day so my friend and I went in to just look through the dresses. They have a huge selection of dresses to select from. I was still allowed to try on dresses even without an appointment. However, when a consultant found out I was getting married in a few months, she asked Trudy if I could get a consultant to work with me that very day. She definitely agreed and sure enough, they made it happen. I discussed with my dress consultant what kind of dress I was looking for and of course she went above and beyond my ideas. She had me try on a dress that was a little different from what I was imagining but it was the dress I fell in love with. It was perfect! The floor model didn't need much alterations so I got excited! I was a little worried that the dress wouldn't be able to ship in time for me to do any required alterations and be ready for the wedding date but it was really meant to be. They found out that the dress was no longer being made. Therefore, they sold me the floor model at a nice discount!!! It was still in absolute great condition so double bonus!!! Thank you to Trudy's Brides for making my wedding dress shopping an easy and fun experience. Thanks to you, I felt like the most confident, elegant, & beautiful bride on my wedding day.

My experience shopping for a dress was 2 stars but my experience going with my friend to shop for her dress was a 3.

I had heard great things about Trudy's but I was truly underwhelmed. I don't even remember the name of my consultant because frankly, it's like she wasn't even there.

I had already gone shopping before so I told her what I was looking for, specifically what I didn't want and my budget. I was taken to the dressing rooms and asked if I needed a bustier. I didn't but she brought one anyways saying the dress would fit better with one on.

She walked in with a couple of dresses that somewhat fit my criteria. I tried them on and each one I walked out with to show my sister was a no. She didn't really offer her opinion even when I asked her what she would put me in. She brought some dresses that I didn't even try because they had what I specifically told her I didn't want. Why bother showing and bringing dresses that I said I didn't want?

After one dress where I walked out to show my sister, the consultant said that she wasn't sure if she had any others but that I should walk around to see if any caught my eye. There I was walking around the store in a wedding dress looking for another to try on. Seriously?

Obviously I didn't buy a dress from them.

I wish I had the consultant that my friend had. I went with her here, and her consultant sat down with her to talk about the wedding, where and when it was going to be, what styles she was interested in if any, what she didn't like or want and her budget. She actually had a conversation with her! I wish mine did this.
She brought dresses that fit my friend's criteria and brought others that she thought would look good on her. I swear each dress she walked out in fit her great, she looked awesome and it totally fit what she had in mind. She wasn't ready to buy that day but she walked out with more clarity of what styles fit her and what she should be looking for. The consultant was super friendly and very accommodating.

After listening to what I was looking for, she immediately went to get a dress that she had in mind. It turned out to be the one. I didn't buy it right away, but after going to a few more stores, I realized that I had to get the first dress that I tried on at Trudy's. The dress came in quickly and looked beautiful the day of. Everyone gave me compliments on the dress the day of and said it was one of the most beautiful dresses they had seen.

After a full day of looking in San Francisco and not finding anything I drove to Campbell as my final destination for the day. So worth it and I wish I would have just started off there. If you've seen the show "Say yes to the dresss" and you want that kind of experience go see Trudy. Her staff is helpful and they will show you a ton of dresses. I had done the research so had print outs of a few dress styles that interested me. By the 5th dress and trying on a veil I was in tears. I had found my dress. I live about 4 hours away and they shipped the dress right to my house and I had my own seamstress do the alterations. I didn't get my shoes and additional pieces from there and if it wouldn't have been so far I would have gone back for a Rehearsal dinner dress. She had fabulous evening wear. Exotic and very colorful ones as well. A++++

Despite having read some mixed reviews, I checked out Trudy’s anyways and am so glad I did. Trudy’s has a great selection of bridal gowns, and I was lucky to work with a very sweet consultant by the name of Leilani. On my second visit to Trudy’s, I bought my dress!

PROS

- You can take photos -
Despite what I’d heard (and what I’ve experienced at other bridal shops), my bridesmaids and friends were allowed to take ample photos of me trying on bridal gowns. These photos were really useful – it’s hard to remember all the dresses after you’ve tried on more than 10!

- You can visit more than once -
Someone had told me that you could only go to Trudy’s once to try on dresses. But she was clearly wrong, because I visited the store twice, bought my dress on my second visit, and returned a third time for my viewing appointment (where you try on your actual dress once it arrives and play with accessories).

- Super sweet saleslady/consultant -
Leilani was so sweet and patient with me. I really felt that she was trying to give me honest feedback and not just get me to buy a dress. I also spoke briefly with Trudy herself and thought she was really nice! I didn’t speak extensively with anyone else in the store, but I also didn’t have negative interactions with any of the staff.

- Good selection, decent prices -
I tried on a variety of dresses in trumpet/mermaid and A-line silhouettes and was able to get a good idea of what I liked and didn’t like on me. Contrary to some of the reviews I’ve read, I didn’t get any attitude about my desired price range ($1000-1500). Wedding gowns are crazy expensive, but we found one close to my price range that I loved. (I don’t think that Leilani brought me any gowns very much outside my price range, which is good!)

- Found my dress! -
No matter how great the store, it’s fairly useless to you if you don’t find a dress you love. I can’t promise that you’ll find your dress at Trudy’s, but I did and I wasn’t tempted to go shopping again.

CONS (but pretty mild as cons go)

- Cozy, not upscale -
I’ve read some reviews where brides complained that Trudy’s was crowded. I disagree – I had plenty of room to walk around and my bridesmaids/friends had room to sit down and relax. However, I do agree that Trudy’s doesn’t have the same feel or atmosphere as an upscale bridal salon.

- No in-house seamstress -
Instead, Trudy’s provides you with a list of tailoring shops that they have worked with in the past. I had received two independent recommendations for another seamstress (Si Arima, see my separate review for her work), so I did not go with a seamstress that was “approved” by Trudy’s. A bit of extra work on my part, but really not that bad, all things considered.

- Not upfront about designer/model name of dress -
(Not necessarily specific to Trudy’s, as I think this is common practice in all bridal shops.)
I get the feeling that bridal shop consultants are doing their darnedest NOT to tell you the designer and model numbers/names of the dresses. Instead, they tell you that they will write down the name of the dress in your “file”. If you look closely at the tags, there’s a series of cryptic codes in place of useful information. I understand that the shops don’t want to lose your business, but I find the practice sneaky and deceptive.

Despite having read some mixed reviews, I checked out Trudy’s anyways and am so glad I did. Trudy’s has a great selection of bridal gowns, and I was lucky to work with a very sweet consultant by the name of Leilani. On my second visit to Trudy’s, I bought my dress!

PROS

- You can take photos -
Despite what I’d heard (and what I’ve experienced at other bridal shops), my bridesmaids and friends were allowed to take ample photos of me trying on bridal gowns. These photos were really useful – it’s hard to remember all the dresses after you’ve tried on more than 10!

- You can visit more than once -
Someone had told me that you could only go to Trudy’s once to try on dresses. But she was clearly wrong, because I visited the store twice, bought my dress on my second visit, and returned a third time for my viewing appointment (where you try on your actual dress once it arrives and play with accessories).

- Super sweet saleslady/consultant -
Leilani was so sweet and patient with me. I really felt that she was trying to give me honest feedback and not just get me to buy a dress. I also spoke briefly with Trudy herself and thought she was really nice! I didn’t speak extensively with anyone else in the store, but I also didn’t have negative interactions with any of the staff.

- Good selection, decent prices -
I tried on a variety of dresses in trumpet/mermaid and A-line silhouettes and was able to get a good idea of what I liked and didn’t like on me. Contrary to some of the reviews I’ve read, I didn’t get any attitude about my desired price range ($1000-1500). Wedding gowns are crazy expensive, but we found one close to my price range that I loved. (I don’t think that Leilani brought me any gowns very much outside my price range, which is good!)

- Found my dress! -
No matter how great the store, it’s fairly useless to you if you don’t find a dress you love. I can’t promise that you’ll find your dress at Trudy’s, but I did and I wasn’t tempted to go shopping again.

CONS (but pretty mild as cons go)

- Cozy, not upscale -
I’ve read some reviews where brides complained that Trudy’s was crowded. I disagree – I had plenty of room to walk around and my bridesmaids/friends had room to sit down and relax. However, I do agree that Trudy’s doesn’t have the same feel or atmosphere as an upscale bridal salon.

- No in-house seamstress -
Instead, Trudy’s provides you with a list of tailoring shops that they have worked with in the past. I had received two independent recommendations for another seamstress (Si Arima, see my separate review for her work), so I did not go with a seamstress that was “approved” by Trudy’s. A bit of extra work on my part, but really not that bad, all things considered.

- Not upfront about designer/model name of dress -
(Not necessarily specific to Trudy’s, as I think this is common practice in all bridal shops.)
I get the feeling that bridal shop consultants are doing their darnedest NOT to tell you the designer and model numbers/names of the dresses. Instead, they tell you that they will write down the name of the dress in your “file”. If you look closely at the tags, there’s a series of cryptic codes in place of useful information. I understand that the shops don’t want to lose your business, but I find the practice sneaky and deceptive. During my first visit to Trudy’s, we did manage to get the names of the designers who made the dresses I liked… I just don’t understand why they can’t be upfront with that information.

After a long day of looking at other bridal shops that didn't really have anything I wanted, it was a bit of a relief to get to Trudy's. Although I didn't have an appointment, they had someone (Hella was her name, seriously) to see me within 15 minutes. They found a dress within the first three dresses that I loved. They told me that I could order it in a different color (white instead of the off white I tried on), however I wish they would've told me all the options for the dress (ie. the beading could've been in a different color, etc.). I also wish they would've ordered me a smaller size. I also wish they would've had a seamstress in house. Although they had a list of tailor shops to give me, I found one near my house, and it cost another THREE HUNDRED DOLLARS to get the hem shortened as well as the bust taken in (although not enough), and ANOTHER amount of money (I didn't pay actually, hubby did :) ) to get it pressed somewhere else because they wouldn't do it there. Argh... this dress was probably the worst part of my wedding, but at least it was done and more or less fit. Anyway, Trudy's was ok overall, and I did get the experience of watching my mom's face light up when I came out in THE dress. :)

I dunno, I guess I watched too much "Say Yes To The Dress" and expected too much.

Trudy's was the one and only gown shop I went to. My maid of honor and mom came with me for my appointment. I suggest brides go with a maximum of 4 people to minimize the potential for managing too many opinions. There were a few brides at the same time who had 5+ women with them and they did not look happy with the comments. Anyway... I had Marika and she was fabulous. The only preference I had was for the dress to be strapless. She had me try on 6 gowns. The first one I thought had too much - I didn't see myself wearing a gown with too much beading... so she adjusted and found a few gowns w/ different amounts of beading. Then she had me try one that was all lace (beautiful! but then we looked at the price tag.)... In the end it was the first gown that I went with. Funny because Marika said that once she saw me, she pictured that gown immediately. It was approximately the price we anticipated. But almost just as important was the experience - she kept it fun and light (I'm not a big shopper and I'm not a fan of undressing in front of strangers or needing someone else's help to get the gown on...) but her excitement & enthusiasm were contagious. The magical moment was when she tucked my hair up, put a veil on me, and a fake bouquet in my hands. My maid of honor started to cry ... then me and mom!

Con: Just that it's such a drive. Watch out if you're ordering your bridesmaid dresses from here. There's a 10% discount or something, but make sure you order AT LEAST five months before your wedding date, otherwise those rush fees will get you.

I found my dress after the second time I went back to Trudys, and I was so happy. Trudys has tons of gowns to choose from, but it can get really crowded during the weekends, so if you can go on a weekday/night, that'd be good. Depending on the consultant, some will let you try on 10 gowns, some only let you try on 3. Different levels of experience in their consultants, stick with the more mature ladies rather than the young ones. The mature lady has more patient and ideas, like mine, Hella. Hella is very patient & was able to find the dress that I want. Delivery time of the dress is just right, definitely go in at least 8 months in advance just to give yourself enough time.

Trudy's was very helpful in helping me find my wedding dress. Though the store can be a little over crowded and crazy, their selection is good. You just have to squeeze passed the strollers that people feel belong in a bridal store (??)

Linda, my sales associate was absolutely great and made choosing my dress so much easier for me.

Price was more than I had planned, but I got lucky and they were having a sale so I was able to get my veil and other accessories for free.

I went to Trudy's in Campbell for my wedding dress and shoes. I must have been lucky because most people I had talked to did not have a great experience at the shop. I have to say that my experience was very good. I met Trudy the first time I went for my appointment and the associate helping me was attentive and listened to what I was looking for.

All in all, I went twice to look at dresses and ended up with the first one I had tried on there. The dress actually came in a few weeks ahead of schedule.

As for shoes, they didn't have a huge selection but I found some that would be perfect for my dress length. They were nice enough to provide me with a local cobbler that also did color match dying - which turned out wonderfully.

I actually ended up purchasing two gowns from Trudy's. I bought the first one & lost too much weight for it to be properly altered. About a month before my wedding I ended up buying another. They did give me a good discount for my off the rack purchase. I just wish they would accept some returns or order down.

I tried on about 60 dresses at 3 different locations. I did purchase my dress at Trudy's. I had 3 different consultants, a different one each time I went, and finally found my dress with Tammy. Trudy's does have an incredible selection. Lots of price points, but most are more expensive. Mine was approx $1500.00. My big problem with Trudy's is Trudy, she is kind of rude frankly, especially to her staff. Also after I picked up my dress and paid in full, I went back to look at veils, and was pretty much ignored. It was obvious that they were no longer in need of my business. Also check and double check those measurements. They wanted me to order a 14, but I went with the 12. The dress came in supper fast, like 2 weeks after I bought it, and I really should have ordered a 10. It was too big before I even lost any weight for the wedding. I think they were using a size chart for a different designer. One good thing though is my bridesmaids got 10% off their dresses because I got my dress there.

So, I'd come here to browse their sample sales, and if you want an expensive dress, but their service was wanting.

This was the first place I went for dresses. The gal that helped me was very in tune with what I liked and I really fell in love with one of the dresses. She was very kind and helpful. I then found the dress of my dreams at a higher priced store, but decided to call Trudy's to see if they carried it, they did and at a more affordable price. So I made an appt again with the same gal that helped me and ordered it. We also ordered all Bridemaids, Flowergirl and mother of the bride dresses there. The only issue I found is they tried to put most of my girls in a size bigger dress. A few of them ordered smaller and really thankful they did.

So I made an appt again with the same gal that helped me and ordered it. We also ordered all Bridemaids, Flowergirl and mother of the bride dresses there. The only issue I found is they tried to put most of my girls in a size bigger dress. A few of them ordered smaller and really thankful they did. Read less

I would recommend booking an appointment with Karen Cremona for choosing a dress. She is friendly, experienced, and not pushy. Dress came 2 months before they said it would arrive, a nice surprise. I used their seamstress onsite, which was only okay (Martha). Her alterations weren't quite what I wanted, and she mixed up an appointment time and made me wait awhile for my second fitting.

My maid of honor and I went to Trudy's to look at dresses and we both ended up purchasing our dresses here. I didn't want a formal gown, and Trudy's had a great selection of bridesmaids dresses I could choose from. They also put the order on rush because it was late January and the wedding was in April, but both of us got our dresses in plenty of time. I can't comment on alterations since I went through a different tailor, but Trudy's was great about pressing my dress the week before my wedding, even though I hadn't done alterations there. I really appreciated their service.

I had a fabulous experience at Trudy's, mostly thanks to Cheryl. She was very sweet and patient with me, especially since I didn't have a clue what I wanted. She brought many dresses for me to try on and was honest with the feedback. I had picked out a dress to see in store which was the one I ended up getting in the end. Trudy's may be a bit more expensive, but the customer service and attention to detail is very helpful!

I get the impression Trudy's is "the" place to go for south bay brides. I had a great experience with both my wedding gown and bridesmaids dresses.

My sister got her wedding gown at Trudy's, and her consultant, Marika, did a great job, so I requested her. We talked for a few minutes and she picked out a dress, which she told me I probably wouldn't like, but we would learn a lot from it. I tried it on, and it was definitely not what I wanted, but we talked about what I did and did not like about the dress. The second dress I tried on was much more what I was looking for, and the third one was definitely the one. I loved it! I highly recommend Marika. She is friendly and seems to have a good eye for what will look good on a bride, as well as finding gowns that fit what a bride wants. I did not expect to find the dress that day, and I had asked my mother in law if she wanted to come shopping with us (as she has no daughters herself), but they were very gracious about letting me have an additional appointment so that she could have the experience too, even though I was already set on the dress.

When I have been a bridesmaid, I have not been impressed with the bridesmaid department. It is crowded and I've felt you don't get a whole lot of service. However, I went in right after my bridal gown appointment, told them I was really pleased with how Marika picked out such a great dress, and asked if there was a bridesmaid equivalent. That person is Connie. I told her what I was looking for, she pulled some dresses, and sure enough, the right one was in there. I think your best bet in the bridesmaid department is to ask for a consultant -- Connie is a good choice--, tell them what you want, and have them pull for you, rather than going through all the racks of dresses.

I would recommend Trudy's.

I had a great experience with Trudy's and found their staff to be very knowledgeable on the dress-selected process. My sales representative, Marika, showed me 7 dresses total, all of which were very pretty and when she brought out the final dress, I actually thought she was a little crazy! It didn't look like anything I was describing to her! But then I tried it on, and when I came out of the dressing room, it was like the whole world stopped to admire this dress! It was one of those experiences when you just KNOW that's your dress!

I love my dress, but my best friend found it for me on the sale rack as we were waiting for my consultant. The consultant pulled some dresses that were not what I wanted, and I ended up taking the one off the rack! Also, they recommend a list of seamstresses. I DO NOT advise you to use Janine. She was nice, but highly overpriced. I drove 2 hours for each fitting, and on what I thought to be the last, she hadan't done the bustle. I had to come back a few days later, and the bustle broke during pictures! It wasn't even a super heavy dress, it was a sheath!

I loved my dress. LOVED it!! It was totally expensive, but worth it. Heather helped me and she was super nice. It's a great location and a beautiful store. The only issue I had was about 2 weeks after my wedding I tried to buy a bridesmaid dress off the rack and they wouldn't really budge on price even though they say you can have a discount for getting your wedding dress there. I guess once the wedding is over you can't get the discount, but with what I paid for my dress I assumed they would work something out with me. They didn't. Oh well, it's still a great place!

Trudy's is very popular. Had 4 bay area brides who had gotten married a year before and all of them landed up buying their gowns at Trudy's. I started my wedding gown search first on theknot.com and then narrowed down my style, Trudy's was one of the place that carried the gown. I also checked a few more bridalshops but finally settled on trudy's for it's selection. I was not a fan of being rushed into the changing room for my appointment, the first lady who help me was soo stressed out and aggressive that I just did not feel comfortable. I was also not too happy with some of the selections she provided but when I had narrowed down my choices to two, I made another appointment and had some friends help me make the final decision. The second time round I got a new lady and she was polite, courteous, and really patient. The place is really popular, meaning crowded and buzy. I had heard the bridesmaid department can be real rude and have to agree I had a similar experience, and landed up getting my bridesmaid dress through another store. My dress arrived earlier than promised and in great shape.
I think Trudy's has a great selection and also an effective main staff. It really boils down to who you get to assist you .

This was the FIRST place I went in search of my wedding dress. I requested Sheila, as I read on yelp.com that she was the best person to help you pick out the perfect dress. The reviews were right, she is the best & so nice!! Based on what I told her from the first dress I tried on (what I liked and didn't like) she brought me a second dress and that I absolutely fell in love with and ended up purchasing. Since I fell in love with the second dress I tired on here, I am absoutely 100% satisfied with the dress, customer service, and the price.

Trudy's really set the standard for all other bridal salons I visited. I cannot recommend this shop enough. The amount of dresses brides have to choose from is truly staggering. The price range is also flexible, and I think that any bride, no matter what her budget, would be able to shop at Trudy's.
Because Trudy's is so popular, appointments are always necessary, and only last half an hour. That could be a downside for some brides. However, during that half hour you have the undivided attention of the salesperson and a personal dressing room.
The staff at Trudy's is wonderful. They know their products well, are very warm and welcoming, and offer helpful advice without overriding your opinion. They worked within my budget and never tried to talk me into something more expensive. When my gown arrived, I received a prompt phone call. The gown was as promised and fit very well.
The dresses were lovely and all appeared to be of high quality. There are also various veils, shoes, and accessories to try on with your gown. The store is clean, attractive, and well-lit. I always enjoyed coming here...too bad it's a once-in-a-lifetime kind of shopping trip.
I also had my bridesmaids purchase their dresses in the Special Occasions department, where we also received exceptional service.

I had an extremely positive experience with Trudy's Bridal. I had never been wedding dress shopping before (not just for my own wedding, but for anyone's---I was the first of my friends to get married), but I had heard of nightmare hour-long experiences. I went with a vague idea of what I wanted, explained that to my gal (Sheryl, who was AWESOME!) and she brought me three dresses. I tried them on and liked two of them. Then I said, can I try one more on, that has beading (since originally I said "no beading"). She brought me one more, and it turned out to be THE DRESS! So, in total, I tried on four dresses and liked three of the four suggestions. Customer service was great and Sheryl even sent me a handwritten thank you note following my purchase. It was such a nice touch!

I'm going to start by saying...the person who fitted me (Cheryl) had the upmost patience, and even missed her lunch break for me. I had 15 women with me and they accomodated us without a grumble. They have the best selection of gowns; they have the reputation of being expensive, but as long as you tell them your budget they will work within it. The Trudy of Trudy's Brides is always there on the weekends, supervising and making sure you are taken care of. She's a little nutty, but very nice. I loved trying on gowns here...and I am not fond of trying things on. I got my gown, tiara, and veil AND my bridesmaids gowns here, and if I had it to do all over again would do the same.

I had a terrible experience at a major chain bridal store, and decided to try Trudy's. The sales woman Heather was just perfect. She listened to what I was looking for and in only 4 dresses I had found the one. They have dresses in every size, so you actually get to try something on, which I didn't get at the other store. My dress was absolutely perfect in every way. Heather was able to match a veil that looked like it had been MADE for my dress. It was such a pleasant experience, and I felt special the entire time. I also got my bridesmaids dresses here. They had a great selection, and Heather helped us pick out a dress that flattered all my maids who ranged from size 0 - 20.

I love Trudy's!!! They really take care of you and help you find the perfect dress. I went to a different place and the person we worked with was kind of mean and nasty and didn't really appreciate me. At Trudy's, they make you feel like the star. I worked with Sheila, and she was fantastic. Love her. Highly, HIGHLY recommended. Don't be scared either, they do have something in your price range if you're on a budget.

I love Trudy's!!! They really take care of you and help you find the perfect dress. I went to a different place and the person we worked with was kind of mean and nasty and didn't really appreciate me. At Trudy's, they make you feel like the star. I worked with Sheila, and she was fantastic. Love her. Highly, HIGHLY recommended. Don't be scared either, they do have something in your price range if you're on a budget.

Lauren Wakefield was an absolute darling and helped turn a nervous experience into a lot of fun. I didn't know just how long it took to have a dress ordered; I went in with less than 5 months to go and found out it was a 6 month process! Not only did Trudy's get me a rush order on the dress but they pulled some strings with their contacts with Pronovias in Barcelona and got it custom made for me! All I had to do when it came in was get it bustled. It fit wonderfully. I'm taking my little sister there when it's her turn to walk down the aisle.

I bought my veil at Trudy's because they offered the most selection at various prices. I was able to find several styles to ensure I had options that were within my budget. The staff was very friendly and I was able to find what I needed quickly.

I bought my wedding gown and my bridesmaids' all ordered their dresses from Trudy's. The wedding dress consultant I worked with was fabulous. Marika was very good at determining my body type and what would look good on me. I found my dress at the end of my second appointment, but still came back for a third time just to make sure. I never felt any pressure to decide too soon and I'm very grateful for that. I also had my alterations done through Trudy's. The dress fit wonderfully. Finally, my experience with the bridemaid's dresses was wonderful as well. All but one of the dresses was delivered on time. The one dress that wasn't delivered on time was a maternity dress and it was NOT Trudy's fault it was late. The vendor was delayed and Trudy's went above and beyond to make sure the dress arrived in plenty of time. Trudy's was a wonderful vendor to work with.

Trudy's was wonderful! Specifically, I worked with Jessica who helped to pick out my perfect wedding dress! She carefully listened to what I wanted in my wedding dress and then picked out the perfect dress! They were very nice and professional to work with. They have a huge selection of designer wedding dresses. However, if you don't have too much in your wedding budget for your dress, I wouldn't suggest going into the store -- you'll want to spend more than you have, because their dresses are so amazing!

Trudy's does have great selection when it comes to wedding dress. But their service is horrible. They don't want you to choose dresses you want. They want you to listen to the dress coordinator. Trudy, the owner, is very snoody and when I changed my mind about my dress in less than half day after I put in deposit, they gave me such a hard time for changing order even though it was from the same manufacture. I tried another time to get my mother's dress and I experienced really bad service as well.

When I took that back, it took forever to get the right one. So bad that I was worried I wouldn't have the right color in time for my wedding.

I LOVED my experience at Trudy's. However, I should point out that I only went on weekday evenings, NOT on weekends. My consultant, Sheryl, was awesome! We talked for a bit about the kind of wedding I envisioned, themes, etc. Then she told me the vibe she perceived from me and the type of dresses she thought I'd be going for. She hit the nail on the head! Every single dress she bought out for me trumped all other dresses I tried on at other shops. Not because the dresses themselves were that much "better" per say, just that they screamed "me" more. She worked with my budget and only brought out dresses that were well within budget. None of this trying to get me to spend more business. She never pushed me to buy right away, and even let me have some time alone with my "posse" to talk things over. I ended up staying there for about 1hour and 45min even though many brides have said they've been kicked out after an hour. All-in-all, I loved my experience there, and I would definitely recommend this place to other brides with the disclaimer that they should request Sheryl (or I heard Marika is good, too) and only go on a weekday. Apparently, weekends are a madhouse.

I loved my wedding gown, accessories, and veil, but Trudy's is way overpriced. The ladies at the bridal section are very helpful, but we went to get my mom's dress from the non-bridal section and they were not helpful at all. The lady who did my alterations was perfect, but again, alterations for the bustling alone cost over $200. My bridesmaids got their dresses somewhere else and their alterations were free. If I had to do it all over again, I would track down my dream dress and get it from a more affordable vendor.

We used Trudy's for my gown, my bridesmaids' dresses, my mother's dress, my jewelry, my headpieces, and a few accessories. The gown and dresses were gorgeous, and Trudy's was a true "one stop shop" for so many necessities, although we did tend to find the accessories in other stores for much lower prices. Our appointment for my gown was around an hour and a half, and my mother ended up trudging through their forest of wedding gowns because the attendant did not seem to be listening to what we wanted, although she was full of advice regarding things we might not have thought of. However, I think with a better listening attendant, we might have had an even better gown. The staff on the other side of the store (special events section where we purchased the bridesmaids gowns and the mother of the bride gown) were far more flexible, attentive, and better service people all around. My girls were able to get their dresses with relative ease from the special events section, and they had a huge selection.

Trudy's dress consultants are very helpful and professional. I was able to find my wedding dress very quickly, and my consultant was very happy to help me find something that would compliment my body type.

I would highly recommend the show, BUT I would warn anyone from getting their alterations done there. My alterations were done so poorly that all throughout my ceremony and reception I was messing with my dress. I had to pull up my dress (strapless) every few minutes because my bodice was showing. I had also asked for an "Extra strength" bustle- which broke within 5 minutes. Mostly I was disappointed that I didn't look my best, and I knew it was because the alterations had been done poorly, and I had spent $800 to have them done. Brides beware!

Trudy's had a great selection of dresses. At first, I found the attitude of some of the employees, and even the owner, a bit off-putting. They were not very helpful when I dropped in to look at dresses. But they had the dress I wanted to try on, so I made an appointment. My bridal consultant, Marika, was wonderfully helpful then, and very kind. I really enjoyed working with her; she had good insight on my dress selection (what shades worked best for me, what type of veil would work well with the dress, etc.) There was some pressure to buy accessories there, but when I was firm about not buying them then, they were respectful. They have a good range of dresses, but not too many on the lower end for cost. However, my dress was a great buy in my mind, less expensive than many similar I had tried on.

This place had me in tears twice, and almost made me cancel my wedding. It started out like a fairy tale, I found the same dress in the magazine, and even though it was 800 more than I wanted to spend, the sales lady was nice and attentive and I put down the deposit the dress on hold.
When I came back to show it to my mother, the woman I originally worked with was gone and I ended up with this snooty elitist broad that acted like the dress was too good for me. But, I ignored her, and fell in love with the dress ten times more than the first time I tried it on. Fast forward a month before the wedding, and I go for the final fitting. They pull out the dress and it's hideous! 1) There was a giant run down the front like someone bigger than me tried to fit into it. 2) There was an actual hole at the base of the zipper 3) There was a big white stain near the front thigh.
Obviously, someone else tried on the dress, but they claimed that I had done that. And that it was already like that when I first put it on hold. Infact, the woman got so uppity and insulted that I would even suggest that they made a mistake that she yelled at me and had me bawling and running out of the store.
Simple facts. The dress? Size 8. Me? Size 4. The dress hung off of me, I would have had to have gain 80lbs, tried it on, then lost the weight, and tried it on again, all within 3 weeks.
Not Likely. And the stain? I don't even want to think about that.
Anyway, I had already decided that this was my dress, so I went back and talked to Trudy herself. She apologized for the conduct, assured me that no one else could have tried it on, but offered to take money off of the dress so I could have it cleaned. When I went back to get this 'offer' the same uppity woman was back and told me the offer was rescinded because I did this to the dress, but they were willing to give me my deposit back. I fought with her on it, and she condescendingly told me that I was just stressed about my wedding and maybe I wasn't ready to get married. That was pretty much the final straw. SO, after crying over losing THE dress, I got my deposit back and ended up getting married in a prom dress that fit my budget.
Guess it wasn't meant to be. But as nice as the selection and atmosphere was, I'm convinced this place is only in business because of a good reputation that failed to be true a long time ago.

My dress was approximately $1100. And for Trudy's Brides, this is probably on the cheaper end, but it definitely didn't look like it. I felt like a princess in my wedding dress. Thats when i finally knew that it was "the one". Sheryl helped me out. So, major kudos for her finding my perfect dress. When my dress came, my mom and I noticed that there was a hole right in the front of the dress at the waist. The employees notified the owner Trudy and she said that she'd take care of it. Within a month or so, we got a different dress and no hole! Thank you thank you Trudy :)

We got engaged in April and just celebrated our marriage this past weekend. Debby helped me find the dress, belt, and veil of my dreams. I was incredibly nervous (as most brides are) that my dress would not arrive in time for alterations to be made. Debby and Trudy assured me that everything would go off without a hitch, and it did! I HIGHLY recommend Trudy's. They have an enormous selection, and their staff are so sweet and attentive.

I was worried that Trudy's was a bit of a Bay Area cliche….But they have truly earned their long-standing reputation for being the BEST! I felt that the staff at Trudy's truly listened to my ideas / vision for my wedding, and they helped make it come to life. The staff pulled the PERFECT selection of wedding dresses, and I ended up purchasing the fourth dress I tried on. Trudy's was also very flexible with allowing me to come in a second time for a viewing appointment with my Mother and Sister-in-Law to show them the dress in person. We also used Trudy's for finalizing my wedding day accessories (hair clips, earrings, bracelet), and we could not have been more pleased. I definitely recommend them to all new brides!

Great experience!!! I'm very indecisive and went into Trudy's not knowing what I wanted and fearful of not being to decide on a dress. By dress #8 I had fallen in love!

I loved my experience. I booked my appointment online. They called me the next day to confirm. I told them what my price point was. They stayed very true to that. I found a dress on my first day! It was a lovely experience. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a dress!

This review is for Michelle at Trudy's. Michelle is so sweet, helpful, and fun. She picked out a couple dresses for me and knew right away what didn't work or what I didn't like. It didn't take her long for her to find "the dress" for me. Michelle just made it so easy for me. Other places took forever because you had to look for dresses yourselves or pick them out of pictures and wait for them to locate each one. At Trudy's, all I had to do was stand there and wait a few minutes each time Michelle had another dress to have me try. She knew exactly where each dress was located and what dress I might like. Even my mom had so much fun with Michelle, she said she wants to have a job like Michelle's! We just all love Michelle!

Turdy's ordered my wedding dress from Spain and got it much quicker than they originally estimated. Their price was fair and I ended up finding a $500+ veil on clearance for $170! I found a ripe and they gave me an additional discount. I was disappointed there was limited on-site alterations. Only one woman works there and she's booked for months. The place across from them took me right away but she was overpriced and wasn't very friendly to work with. Overall my experience at Trudy's was rather positive.

The experience of buying my dress at Trudy's was wonderful. Everyone was so pleasant and couldn't have been more attentive. Plus, our helper had a great eye for what'd look good on me. However, after ordering the dress, the whole experience went bad. They shipped my veil to the wrong place; then charged me twice for shipping. They wanted two shipping payments for the dress. The sash that I was told I'd get was not given to me, and the helper played dumb when we asked about it - claiming I'd never ordered it. They eventually just gave us the sash. It was a pain, but at least the shopping part was enjoyable.

After trying on about 60 dresses at 6 different bridal boutiques, Trudy's was a complete godsend! The staff are very friendly and professional, and know how to make a bride feel special! I only had to try on a handful of dresses before I found THE ONE. It was in my price range and had every element I had been looking for all along!

The staff at Trudy's are very helpful and all can't wait to help you find your dream dress. At times the location was very busy and we had to wait for service, and we did have a mix up on the veil I ordered, but they quickly took care of everything and I was pleased with their attention to the matter! Overall, great staff, and a huge selection of beautiful, affordable dresses!

I had an amzing experience here. I told them what I was looking for and the price I wanted to stay under and they found the perfect dress for me. They didn't try and show me dresses out of my budget so they could make a bigger sale which was great! My dress even came in 2 months earlier then they said! I would highly recommend.

Oh, it was just so easy to find my dress here! The experience was just like I had hoped for in my dreams, and everything went smoothly. The dress itself was just a work of art-beaded and the whole lot!

I found my wedding dress here. Trudy's offers by far the best service I've received in the Bay Area, but I ended up finding my dress cheaper somewhere else and I guiltily admit I bought it from a different vendor. However, I have returned time and time again to Trudy's with my friends because I know that the staff at Trudy's know what they're doing and have an excellent selection of dresses. I also purchased my bridesmaids dress here.

I purchased my dress from Trudy's Bridal in late 2002 for my wedding in 2003. The women who helped were older and reminded me very much of my Grandmother- they were attentive and very sweet. I love my dress but opted to make alterations after I purchased it from them. The only reason I opted not to do alterations through Trudy's was because their location was far from home. I would recommend them again to friends!
