Mafalda's Bridal Boutique
So I took my sweet time finding the perfect wedding gown. I finally purchased my wedding gown the month before the wedding, the bridal store was highly recommended by a close friend. I walked in their shop and the whole staff helped me find a dress. We found my dream wedding dress and it fit me like a glove, they added the french bustle and I also added more bling by purchasing a matching gorgeous sash. The gown was a one of a kind and it was affordable but looked like it cost $5000 plus. The staff made me feel like cinderella and the experience was memorable.
Perfect for a bride on a budget! The owners were SO helpful. I told them what I was looking for and based on that and my body type, they found about six different dresses (two different trips), and two of them I absolutely fell in love with!! I chose one dress, and they were letting me make payments on it (since they had to order another size for me). But the other size I needed wasn't available anymore, so their seamstress looked at the dress and they said they could order the fabric and make me a whole new dress and no extra cost (just the cost that I was paying for my other dress). Problems arose on my end and our wedding was postponed. By the time I went back to take care of my dress for my (rescheduled) wedding, the seamstress wasn't able to make my dress because she would be out of work for personal reasons.
Instead what the owners let me do was pick out a new dress (dress number two that I fell in love with) and they took the payments that I had made on the first dress and applied it to the other dress, plus worked with me on the price since it was a little out of my budget.
They were extremely helpful and nice!! I'm going back to them again when I have to get a bridesmaids dress for my friends wedding.
Mafalda's is located in Gilroy and although it's a small town this store carried everything and most important my dream wedding gown. I was in this shop all the time just to try my dress on for fun and they allowed me to do whatever I wanted whenever I wanted. The owner Mafalda herself was at every fitting to help me and if I had questions she would speak to me directly everytime.
She had a large selection of jewelry, shoes and accesories. I had bought prom dresses there before and ofcourse I was going to get my wedding dress from her too!
She does offer discounts if you also purchase bridesmaids dresses and she will work with your financial situation good or bad.
