This is a wonderful local business in the Coachella Valley, but great for anyone looking for a wedding dress, regardless of where you live. They cater to their brides and make them feel extremely special. The service is incredible. They work very hard to understand your budget, what you are looking for and then to find you your dream dress.
The staff at Desert Bride was helpful in helping me to find my perfect dress and very patient with me when I made multiple appointments to try on the same two dresses. It felt like a celebration when I finally decided on my dress. I could tell the staff and owner were very happy for me!
The perks of being a Desert Bride never end! When you buy your dress you get a great package including an engagement photo session, discounts on dress preservation, tuxedo rental, including a free tuxedo rental for the groom, discounts on your bridesmaid dresses and mother of the bride/groom dresses to name a few. Oh and a bottle of Desert Bride champagne! Check Desert Bride out on Facebook and you can see how much they do for their brides.
I recommend Desert Bride to anyone looking for a wedding dress, occassion gown, fun party dress, bridesmaid dress or prom dress! They are a full service bridal salon, so they have beautiful veils and jewelry, as well. They also have a wonderful alterations woman they will refer you to. The owner and staff are incredible!
I found the dress of my dreams at Desert Bride. Mickie and her team were amazing to work with and made me feel special every time I went in. I got so many compliments on my dress throughout the night and am still getting compliments.
I originally went to try on a specific dress but ended up with something completely different that I loved! I drove from OC to get there but it was well worth it. The staff is super helpful and friendly and the dress I bought was part of a trunk show so the designer was even on hand to give me his input. They do not have all the dresses out but sit with you to get an idea of what you are looking for and then pull some for you to try on. It keeps it from being overwhelming, even though you wonder what you may have found if they were all out. For my dress it was out due to the trunk show, and not something I would have picked, but they suggested I try it and it was the one. They do not do alterations as part of the store but have a local lady they recommend. I used her and she met me at the store 2 times to do the fittings. The staff remembers you and your wedding theme, details, etc which makes you feel more like a friend than a customer. I would recommend driving out here for your dress!
I found the dress of my dreams at Desert Bride! I live in San Francisco, and my mom lives in Palm Desert, so I wanted to find a place near her to go shopping. I'm a plus sized woman, and was anxious about shopping for dresses. I was so impressed by the number of dresses they had in my size! I felt really beautiful, which is what every girl wants when she is trying to find THE dress. My sales clerk Shatea was just lovely, and everyone in the salon made myself and my little posse feel welcome. They also gave us good pricing on bridesmaids dresses and other accessories. This is a great store and I'm so happy I came here. :)
My daughter found the most beautiful dress at Desert Bride. Everyone there was very helpful and made her feel like a princess. Since she lives out of town, they were very accommodating when it came to scheduling her appointments and alteration times.
Desert Bride treated me with kindness and the upmost professionalism. I made the mistake of going to our local David's Bridal and I was treated like a number, not a Bride. I want every potential Bride out there to know that you will get the BEST treatment at Desert Bride. I went in there knowing the style that I wanted but I couldn't find THE dress. After trying on a couple of dresses, Mickie Reed, the owner, picked the ONE for me. I was also a Bride that needed a little extra done to her dress. I insisted on having sleeves made because I hated my arms. Linda in Alterations made my dream dress come true. She wasn't giving up until I had exactly what I wanted. The day I tried it on with my sleeves I ended up crying on the spot. I had that magical feeling that every Bride should have. I can honestly say that Mickie and her staff at Desert Bride made me feel special and a true Princess Bride.

The entire dress shopping experience was amazing. Their dresses are beautiful, clean and they are constantly getting in new dresses to keep their inventory fresh and up to date. They were wonderful to work with and I would use again for ANY special event dress that I need in the future!
Love desert bride! From the very first time I stepped into their boutique I was treated like a princess. I couldn't have asked for a more pleasant experience. Their dresses are gorgeous and really fit anyone's budget. I would recommend desert bride to everyone of my family and friends in a heart beat.
Living in the Coachella Valley it is very exciting to have a boutique like Desert Bride because in the past to get quality, current bridal gowns you would always hear of women having to drive to Los Angeles. Well not anymore! Desert Bride has it all and with friendly, helpful staff and a variety of labels. My Jasmine gown found ME at Desert Bride and I couldn't be happier with the support I received in this whole process. Another perk was the luxury of buying my shoes, veil, jewelry, maids of honor dresses and the mens tuxedos all in one place and ALL quality. Weddings can be stressful but my Desert Bride friends are a support system and I actually have made new friends with this experience. They know bridal at Desert Bride, I recommend them to anyone!

Desert Bride made our experience so wonderful. My first experience as mother of the bride, so the whole experience was new to us. The owner and employees made us feel as if our wedding were the most important event of the year! My daughter found the dress of her dreams (in my price range!) and the bridesmaid dresses were beautiful. As mother of the bride, I ended up buying two dresses because I couldn't decide between two gorgeous picks. We were able to get the tuxes that my daughter wanted at the same location. The seamstress who did the alterations (Thanks, Linda) did a beautiful job. Everything was delivered with plenty of time to spare. When we needed a last-minute dress for my niece, they came through again. My husband and I are thinking of renewing our vows next year so I can buy the dress of my dreams!!
From beginning to end Desert Bride took all the worry and stress out of dress shopping. I have three other daughters and plan on doing much more business with Mickie and her team in the future. May have to take a cruise so I can buy more formal wear!!
Thank you again, Desert Bride for the professional, timely and all around perfect experience.
When I started planning my wedding, I went to Desert Bride "just to look" since I planned on buying my wedding dress in Los Angeles. Little did I know that I would find the dress of my dreams! Mickie and the staff at Desert Bride are absolutely amazing! Everytime I was there I felt like a queen.
I'm a plus size girl and was really nervous about trying on wedding dresses because I didn't think they would be in my size - was I ever wrong! It was wonderful to actually be able to try on dresses in my size and to see that the dresses were gorgeous! The experience I had buying my dress so so incredible that I also purchased my bridemaids dresses from Desert Bride as well.
Mickie and her staff went out of their way to make sure that my wedding attire was everything I wanted - and then some!
Desert Bride was amazing. We first went to Davids Bridal and after being there for two minutes I was going to do anything in my power to never step foot in that place again. That's when we found Desert Bride! And thank God we did! It's personable, quaint, and relaxed, just what I wanted for my wedding. All of the girls were so helpful and we became friends throughout the process. With all of the stress involved with planning a large wedding that's exactly what I needed. Everything went beautifully thanks to everybody at Desert Bride, and I recommend them to ALL of my friends and you too.
