This was my first stop on my hunt for the perfect wedding dress. I had a lovely time and my bridal consultant was sweet and friendly and helpful. Although I did not end up purchasing my dress from this store, I did find the dress I wound up purchasing at it! I had a lot of fun at Gesinee's Bridal, and it certainly was a great kick off to my wedding planning adventures.

I purchased my wedding gown (AA 1620) from the Brea, CA location and I had an amazing experience! I went on a Saturday, out of necessity, and even though the place was crowded I was treated kindly and there was always someone helping me (even if it wasn't the same person). I loved my shopping experience at Alfred Angelo!
Always top of the line, quality service to be found at Nordstrom. The flower girl dresses, shoes, and wreaths were purchased at the Walnut Creek location, as were both of our mom's outfits and my bridal shoes. Every employee who helped us out was extremely kind and helpful, and gave us all the attention we could have asked for. I will always shop at Nordstrom if I want a quality experience, for weddings or life in general.

I did not purchase my gown from Bridal Galleria in the end (I just couldn't make it fit my budget, sadly), but I had a wonderful experience while I was there- including my first "I'm a Bride!" moment!
My bridal consultant was Lana, and she was incredibly helpful. I explained the style I was looking for, and she brought me a variety of incredibly beautiful gowns, and indeed had I had the budget, the Vera Wang that could have been "the one." Trying on that gown really made me realize that I was about to be a BRIDE! Lana helped me figure out different veil styles I liked, and she even e-mailed me some helpful images to go along with the look I wanted, even once I regretfully informed her that I could not afford my dream gown. I am eternally grateful for all of the help I received at Bridal Galleria.
Amy made me the most beautiful skirt, and supplied me with an incredible wreath for my hair!
I wanted something ballet-inspired to wear for either my rehearsal dinner or bachelorette party or as a reception dress... I really hadn't decided yet. But after seeing the fantastic creation that Amy presented me with, I may just have to wear this skirt to all three events!
The skirt itself is yards and yards of tulle, light and fluffy enough to satisfy any ballerina. Although I hadn't even thought of it, Amy added a beautiful lace trim under the first layer of tulle, which delights me to no end. The thoughtful, generous soul that she is, she also created a silk ribbon to tie around the waist of the skirt, and some beautiful flowers made of silky material that can be pinned onto the skirt or a cute top to really tie the outfit together. Amy has a warmth and attention to detail that I absolutely adore, and I plan on working with her as often as I can to create beautiful new outfits to round out my wardrobe.
The wreath is a delicate, white wreath made of beads and a lovely fabric or ribbon, with a comb attached to the back to secure it to your hair. I saw it on her blog, entitled Bride Chic, and I made a comment about how lovely I thought it was. She informed me that she still had the same wreath, and I immediately asked her about it. Needless to say, shortly thereafter, it was mine and I love it!
I cannot wait to wear my new, beautiful skirt and wreath. It will truly make me feel like a princess, on one of my special days, or any day that I end up wearing them.
Thank you Amy, with all of my heart.
