I went to Yelena after my first wedding dress was destroyed by the cleaners! I purchased the first dress off rack at another Bridal Salon (The Ivory Suite, South Pasadena). Unfortunately, I used my own trusted cleaners, not the salons. They ruined a HAND FRENCH SILK LACE gown. Thankfully, I had wedding insurance...I HIGHLY recommend getting it for anything that goes wrong (and it will!). I went to Yelena's with a broken heart to begin looking for a new dress 4 months before my wedding day! They spent several hours with me looking and trying on dresses. I was so stuck on my original dress that it was hard to look at anything else. I had been envisioning that dress for 10 months prior. After 3 different days at Yelena's narrowing down dresses, and what could be completed in the time we had. I finally choose a dress! However, as days went by I had buyers guilt. I was tired of looking, still sad, and I chose a dress that everyone else loved, not me. I burst into tears one night telling my fiancee that I didn't love my new dress.

I went back into Yelena's to tell them that I didn't love the dress. They spent yet another few hours with me talking about what we could add to the dress to make it MY wedding dress. I decided to leave everyone else (mom, sisters, friends, maid of honor and bridesmaids) OUT of the process now. Susan, Aida, and Joanne were amazing! We added hand beading done by Aida, who is phenomenal! We turned the sash around for a clean look and a rose in the back. We altered the neckline. We added 3 layers of crenoline. At my final fitting, I cried, it was perfect! I couldn't imagine any other dress. I couldnt' recommend Yelena's Bridal and their amazing staff more!
*plus there is a dog in the shop :)

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!

I loved working with the ladies at Yelena Bridal. They were all very sweet and helpful. They helped me find the perfect dress for my day. The alterations were expensive, but I wouldn't trust anyone else. They clearly have so much experience and it showed. They made my dress fit perfectly. I would definitely recommend them!

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!
