Unfriendly, cold salon with an owner who verges on being seriously mean-spirited. You're dealing with BRIDES! Make it a fun, warm experience - let the bride leave feeling good about herself! I spent my money elsewhere, as it didn't seem like this store was interested in my business at all. I'm thinking it might have been because she thought I was merely window shopping or playing dress up, because I didn't have my mother with me. Assumptions will not get you a sale!

Marylinn's was fantastic!! They made me feel like family. I bought my dress at the Pasadena location, and it came in early. They sent it to the Beverly Hills location because it was more convenient. The seamstress, Suzie, is very sweet and did an amazing job on my dress. I didn't even really realize the neckline was off until she fixed it for me. The bustle looked amazing and held all night, even through vigorous dancing. Suzie also gave my mother and one of the my wedding planner's assistants a lesson in how to lace/bustle the dress. I would recommend this salon to anyone. I also tried on dresses here, and the consultants were extremely nice and helpful. There was no mention of a limit on the number of gowns I could try.

Friendly, personable salespeople. I tried on dresses here but ended up selecting one elsewhere, but my bridesmaids found their dresses here. We had no problem coordinating this, even though several of the girls were out of state, and one was ordering the dress in a different color. Dresses arrived promptly and were all the correct color and size. The young woman upstairs in the bridesmaid area is particularly kind and helpful. Renee herself always had a smile for me, too, and made me feel like a valued customer, even though we were just getting the bridesmaid dresses. As a bonus, they had cake samples!

Wow. We asked for a cake based on our save the dates, and Amy and her team delivered something even more gorgeous than I had imagined. It was elegant, creative, and beautiful and fit the event perfectly. Our flavors were vanilla bean and fleur del sel (chocolate with dark chocolate ganache, caramel, and sea salt). My husband doesn't like sweets, but he loved the fleur del sel flavor - delicious and different. We even got one layer that was chocolate AND vanilla. People raved about the cake; we even had some people who were just eating the fondant because they loved it so much! I got to eat some cake the day after the wedding, and it was SO good and moist.
