I love Kelly !!! She did my trial and the makeup was stunning. When I suggested things on my hair (she used my clip-in extensions) that I didn't particularly liked, she would change it until it was something I liked better.

I got married on New Year's Day and Kelly & LeAnn showed up at 6am sharp to do my hair/makeup and 11 more services to my bridesmaids and Mom. They did not leave my house until we were all pleased with the final results and boy did they make us look terrific. I would highly recommend Kelly and her staff.

What a horrid experience. Out of the 9 tuxes we rented only 3 arrived correctly. 3 were shipped to the wrong store. 2 had pants that were too long, 1 had pants that were too huge and 1 the jacket was so small it wouldn't fit at all. We ended up going to the store twice and spent countless hours waiting for the correct ordered outcome.

We had to argue with the clerks to find a solution to THEIR problem and they acted like there wasn't anything they could do to correct it. We spent $129. per person, per rental and in our attempt to pick up the tuxes we spent about 5 hours in the stupid store the two days before the wedding. I would NOT recommend them to anyone. They were awful and such a waste of time (especially when time is so important.) My fiance almost missed the rehearsal as he was stuck fighting with clerks to correct his tux!!!! Awful, awful, awful place!!!

LOVED our consultant Beth. Lots of dresses to choose from and very good prices. (we found a Maggie for $758 there that was selling for over $1100. at Debra's in Upland). Even though the shop is in a very strange part of town it is probably the largest and cutest shop we were ever in and we went to at least 4. Found a dress at a bridal show Mariposa was at but the sample was sold before our appointment at their store. Tried on numerous dresses at their store and actually found another one I thought I liked better. Returned to the shop with my maid of honor to show her my choice and then actually fell in love with another dress. Unbelievably I found the same dress at a small local shop for even cheaper and have ordered it there, BUT Mariposa had a beautiful beaded sash that I plan on purchasing from I will go back a third time and spend my money there!!!! I would recommend Mariposa to all brides searching for THE dress !!!

I do not care for Deborah's Bridal and I am not even sure why I went there. I went with my sister 4 years ago and they were snobbish and snooty (can't remember the consultants name but she was older.) Went again in January 2010 for myself. We had gone to a Bridal show in Ontario and I was excited about "the wedding" and wanted to try on dresses, happened to call them that day which was a Saturday and they had an open appointment. We were given a young very nice girl as our consultant and she showed us the numerous dresses that we could choose from. She was very helpful and did show us dresses within our budget. We had previously found a Maggie that I had fallen in love with (and knew the manuf. retail price was $758). Our consultant finally looked it up on her computer and gave us a price for that same dress as over $1100. They do CUT out all the labels of their dresses and will NOT let you take photos. Guess they do that so you will spend $300. more at their store for a dress you could buy alot cheaper somewhere else. I do understand dresses are expensive but I don't understand why they think they can charge so much more than other stores and offer so much less. Glad I didn't spend my hard-earned money there.

Village Bridal
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Very cute store with a decent amount of gowns. This was my second bridal shop appointment of the same day (I wanted to buy a dress and stop looking) and I was convinced that I had found my gown at the prior store. I was most excited to see the exact same dress at Village Bridals but did try on 6 or 7 other dresses before trying on "the" dress. Well it most definitely confirmed that this was the one but the VERY best part was this exact same dress was $187. cheaper at Village Bridal. Then I figured they must get you with the "additions" you know, steam pressing, bustling, storage fee etc. Well to my surprise INCLUDED in the price of my gown was free steam pressing, free garment bag, free storage, and she quoted me $10 a point for the bustle which is alot cheaper than I have found anywhere. Needless to say I ordered my dress from them. I told a friend about this great shop and her Mother had fallen in love with a Mom's dress at another store but they didn't have it in her size and the wedding was only 7 weeks away. Mom called up Village Bridal and they were able to put a rush order on this very same dress in the correct size and Mom is ecstatic. I highly recommend Village Bridal !!! My dress was PERFECT, affordable and Village Bridal was just terrific. My bustle turned out great and I couldn't have been happier.
