My BM's got their dresses from this David's Bridal. Everything went well, and they all looked great. The prices are very reasonable, however I do think their alterations are over-priced!! We got consultant Melissa, she was very friendly to help us out.

My sister got her dress there, we were told they would call us when it came in. We never got a call, infact we called them! & when we went to pick it up, it was wrinkled, it wasn't even steamed as they told us it would be when she first bought it.. So we had to leave the dress there and come back for it almost a week later. It was a big inconvenience because it was the week of the wedding. Aside from that, everything went well. The prices are reasonable, I just wish they would be more on top of things. I got my shoes from there too, no complains there, but again I had to call them, they never called me!

I got our wedding shot glasses from discountmugs, they came out great and I absolutely loved them! I wish I would have chosen a darker purple but that was my mistake, it's not a big deal tho! They do have a great selection of clip arts.. I highly recommend them. Nothing came broken, everything was well packaged and they do have sales, sign up for their e-mails, I got 10%off my order :) I've seen better coupons via e-mail tho.

Janet is like my Fairy God Mother (like Cinderella)
I got a dress I loved, then the unkind bridal shop people ruined it for me with a horrible bustle, then came Janet to save the day!! I was beginning to doubt my dress and wouldn't even smile when trying it on :( I do not want to ruin my review of Janet with talking about my horrible experience with the bridal shop, however I'll only mention that because that is what brought me to her.

I honestly have nothing but great things to say about her, she is wonderful! She was able to accomodate me with very little notice and have my dress all done 5 days before my wedding! Even with little time, she never rushed me, we had 3 fittings within 2 weeks to make sure everything went well. She knows exactly what she is doing and what she's talking about. She's very friendly, easy to talk to and really does care about THE DRESS! Janet brought my smile back when I put on my dress, she fixed the hem, did a great bustle that stayed put all night (& I danced A LOT!) and also cleaned out some stains.

She is worth the drive to the O.C., and is worth every penny!! Her prices are reasonable and she truly is one of a kind :)I have pictures of my fittings in my bio. Go to Janet, you will not regret it!!

My husband and his boys got their Calvin Klein suits from this MH. They all looked great, except my DH had to wear other shoes, apparently the ones they provide are not all that great and very shiny lol. He was able to get his suit rental for free since he had at least 5 guys renting their suits from there also..

Minguita's Bridal
 
( 1.0 / 5.0 )
Go to yelp.com.. read ALL of the reviews (even the filtered reviews!) Reading the filtered reviews gives you a better idea, and I mention this because my review got filtered. Mine and others that did shouldn't have because it gives brides a better idea of what this shop is all about.

All I can say is DO YOUR RESEARCH before you decide to go to Minguita's. You will soon find out that there are waaay more bad reviews than good, and most of the good ones that they do have are very cliche!

They lied to me, when I ordered my dress, they were extremely nice and told me it will get there in 3 months. Well after many calls, and them telling me it will be here next week, next week... I finally went to pick up my dress 3 weeks before my November wedding..!! My dress was to arrive early August!! They do not care, or order your dress when they say they will.. and their alterations are really bad. They added two strings to tie together for a bustle. It was the most horrific thing ever, not even how a bustle is suppose to look. Go to my bio and look at the awful bustle this shop did for me ;-/

I would NEVER recommend Minguita's to anyone, unless I hated them. But nah, now that I think about it, I wouldn't even recommend Minguita's to my worst enemy. Ha! What does that tell you?

Trendy Too
 
( 3.4 / 5.0 )
My Junior BM's got their pretty Lilac dresses from Trendy Too! This store has a HUGE variety of dresses with great prices (it's 2 floors!) However if you want more personalized attention I suggest that you do not go on the weekend because they get VERY BUSY! If they do not have a dress on your size or color they will order it for you, which is what they did with us and the dresses got their on time ;-) Their customer service isn't all that great but their prices make up for that defenetly!
