Working with Yelena Bridal was probably one of my most treasured and favorite things about my wedding experience. My dress was absolutely stunning and perfect for me. Suzanne helped me find it and knew exactly what I wanted. The whole experience from my first day finding my dress to a week before the wedding and picking it up was flawless. I stayed within my budget, and I was able to get my veil (custom made) and my headpiece all from Yelena's. The women are super helpful and considerate of your budget and style. My alterations was PERFECT. My dress fit like a glove. I wish I could do it all over again!

Great professional alterations. A bit expensive, but worth it. You can trust them with your dress, they take care of everything.

I ordered my first wedding dress online and it never showed up!! I was devastated! But when I went to Yelena's to shop for a new dress they saved the day!! The consultants were lovely to work with, they suggested wonderful options to me that matched my style and were so patient with me! I found the perfect dress in about an hour :)

The team at Yelena's Bridal are fantastic!
With most of the bridal shops in Southern California (Beverly Hills and Pasadena) that I went to, the salespeople were always very pushy/opinionated and favored certain "designers" over others - based purely on their own opinions. At Yelena what I found was that the team truly wants to find a dress that best suits YOU and your body type. They are also great about sticking within your budget - something that was unheard of at these other dress shops.
We found my perfect dress and veil and were able to have all alterations done in-house. (Their alterationist is extremely talented and has been doing this since before I was born!)
Safe yourself the frustration of dress shopping and go to Yelena's!

Terrible! Don't do it!
I thought it was going to be a wonderful experience and it was just horrific! I'm not that girl to complain nor was I bridezilla, so I guess being nice was a HUGE mistake on my part.
They did not have my dress ready when they promised, what alterations they made were totally off and nothing was aligned. I made a special trip to pick it up, they sent home their tailor and told me to go to her house to get the dress tailored (the day before Christmas), she never returned my phone calls, nor did anyone until three weeks after our wedding. (FIVE WEEKS IN TOTAL w/ no response) I was forced to wear a dress that was TWO sizes too big because they wanted to close early for the Holiday. Considerate, ha! Totally unprofessional!

The girls at Yelena are all very attentive and helpful. They were the only location anywhere near the Los Angeles area that could custom order my dress. They contacted me promptly when it arrived. Even though we checked measurements on me and through the dress company, and ordered a size larger than my normal size, it was just too small. I was very, VERY nervous. When the alterations were done, it fit perfectly and was truly my dream dress!

I was very pleased with the service at Yelena's, especially Sandra. I had very few ideas of what kind of dress I wanted and she did a great job picking out some things for me to try, including the dress I eventually chose. I am 37, did not have a gaggle of bridesmaids, and I don't like strapless so I'm not a typical bride. Yelena's was the only bridal shop I went to (of 6) where the staff was not younger and thinner than me. It was reassuring to me that they are so experienced and clearly know what they are doing. Everyone I dealt with was very normal and easy to work with.
They did not try at all to push me into buying the shoes, purse, headpiece, etc. I think the dress prices were average but it's kind of hard to compare. The cost of the alterations was quite a bit higher than I expected but I guess I didn't know what to expect. They did a lot of work though, and it fit perfectly.
Couple pieces of advice: do your makeup and your hair, and shave before trying on dresses-it really does make it easier to look in the mirror. Also, determine who is going to help you get dressed on your wedding day and make sure they come to at least 1 fitting, if not 2. You'll want your helper to be familiar with all the snaps, ties, straps, zips, whether that little piece of fabric tucks in or tucks out, etc. My helper did not really understand how to get the thing laced up in back and it was the only stressful thing the whole day. Well, that and when my hairdresser overslept and showed up an hour late, but that's another story.
