Trudy's was absolutely great during the whole wedding dress process! This was the first place I visited and I found what would later be me dress. I went to several other stores within the area, but ended up returning to Trudy's for my dress. Not only did they have the best service, but they also were the only one to have that particular dress. I even came back for bridesmaid dresses and they put up with us there for hours and hours when we had a hard time choosing a dress.

I Love Trudy's. I had the absolute best experience every single time I went there from trying on gowns to ordering my gown to my viewing appointment and accessories shopping. I also purchased my wedding party dresses there and again received the best service as well as a 10% discount. I could not be happier with my experience and Love Love Love my dress. I highly recommend Trudy's.

I absolutely loved my experience shopping at Trudys! The consultant I worked with was friendly, knowledgeable, and not too pushy. She listened to what I was looking for and found the most amazing first dress to put me in; we all knew right away it was "the one." Still, she was patient while I tried on a few more just to be sure, and was not pushy when I let her know I had a second appointment to try on dresses at another place. No other shops could compare to the great service I received at Trudys though, and I returned the next week to buy the dress of my dreams. I know many women who have found their dresses at Trudys, and they will all tell you the same thing about the wonderful experience they had and their success at finding a gorgeous dress in their price range!

I had an awesome experience at Trudy's! My advice - make an appointment for a weekday (weekends are too busy), ask for Didi (because she's awesome), and try on dresses that you didn't think you would like. Didi has an extreme attention to detail - she would tuck my bra straps in and clamp down the back side of the dress rather than right down the middle of the back so we could see the detail of the back. She is amazing! I ended up trying on several dresses on Friday, going to a few more places on Saturday (Haute Bride in LG and Bo Lee Bridal in Sunnyvale), and going back to Trudys to buy the first dress I tried on. I loved my experience there and would highly recommend it to anyone :)

Trudys Brides truly is the BEST place to get all of your formalwear whether you're the bride, bridesmaid, mother of the bride or even a guest! They are a one stop shop and the best thing about Trudys is they genuinely care about their customers.
The consultants and Trudy personally took time to talk to me about myself, my guy, my wedding and what I was looking for in a dress. They really listened and pulled dresses they thought were the best for me and even when they knew I had found my dress they let me keep trying on dresses until I was certain.
I found the most beautiful gown and had the best experience, I couldn't be happier with Trudys Brides they are the BEST!!!!

I had found my wedding dress at another store (in another state!) and came here to buy it since this close to my house. The service they provided while in the store was decent, very nice and welcoming, but my problem is the size they recommended. It was a size too big and they did not let me know that you can order Maggie Sottero dresses with a shorter length (my friend informed me she did this). I had a big alterations bill and was not happy to have to pay it knowing I could have saved had they known what they were doing.

I bought my dress in 2006 and got married Sept 1, 2013 and my dress was still perfect. My father bought the dress for me and passed away in 2010- wore this dress in remeberance of him

I really had a wonderful experience finding a dress. I had no idea what I wanted and Michelle was amazing at reading my face to find just what I wanted.

Our first visit to Trudy's was just...fine. Although I was living out of state at the time, our consultant assured us that we should buy the dress in town, since the wedding was here, so I didn't have to travel with it, and it was one less thing to worry about. When the dress came in, I came to pick it up, and they were far less willing to accommodate our screwy time schedules. They actually told me that we definitely should have gotten the dress in my home state and traveled with it. The only reason I bumped up the rating to four stars is Martha. She did my alterations, and was fantastic. She does beautiful work, and is so fun and sassy, she makes the fittings go by so smoothly. I wound up going with a different pair of shoes (much shorter) in between my second and third fittings, and she re-pinned the hem of my whole dress in minutes, all the while telling me she was glad I found shoes I wouldn't fall down in. She's the best!

I love my dress. LOVE It!! Trudys is a great location and a beautiful store with a great selection of bridal gowns, bridesmaids dresses and gorgeous party dresses. Their prices are great and I got it all here, one stop shop. They are professional, helpful, and know what you need to look beautiful on your special day. I will definitely recommend this store to everyone I know and for all types of occasions.

This dress store had so many options and tons and tons of choices! I found the one here :) They don't have the perks that smaller shops have such as bridesmaids discounts or free veil.

We made an appointment at Trudy's because we heard they carried a vast range of different styles and price points. This turned out to be very true. Trudy's assigned us Shannon to be our bridal consultant for the appointment. This was my first time looking for a dress and I wasn't quite sure what I wanted so I told Shannon what I didn't want as well as my max price point. With zero judgement and lots of affirming words, she found me the perfect dress. The third dress Shannon brought out was the dress I got married in. I put it on, walked out, and both my mom and I knew that was the dress. Shannon did a great job remaining objective and left the decision up to me. I was also amazed that my satin dress was so high quality and SO affordable. We ordered the dress that day and Trudy's got it in plenty of time for alterations. Everyone I interacted with at Trudy's was helpful, polite, and prompt. I highly recommend going to Trudy's for a pleasurable and drama-free shopping experience.

I had no idea what I wanted and I was being very difficult and grumpy. The lady helping me stayed positive and in 5 dresses found one that I LOVED. My dress was perfect and even under what she said I would have to spend.

I am from the Bay Area so when I was visiting my mom she suggested putting a group together to go wedding dress shopping. I jumped at the idea and went to Trudys per a recommendation of a relative. My consultant, Didi, did an excellent job of listening to my wants and stayed within my budget. I also never felt pressured to buy. Since I don't live in the bay area they allowed by friend to pick up the dress for me. The dress also arrived 6 weeks early which was nice. My dress was a Maggie Sottero and they carry her line so if you like her dresses definitely go to Trudys.

From trying on the dresses, to follow-up phone calls about delivery date Trudy's had outstanding customer service.
I ordered my dress from the bridal section, and my bridesmaids ordered there's in the special occasion section.
Everyone was so helpful! I found my dress, and wanted to wait to purchase it until my mom and sister were in town (two days later). They didn't have any available appointments, so the sales women came-in early to let me try the dress on one last time for my mom and sister!
The dress came in about a month earlier than expected.
Would definitely recommend going to Trudys!

After trying on dresses at a few local bridal salons, I went to Trudy's. Every dress I tried on I would have been happy in, but I really found my dream dress. The staff was so helpful and friendly. I didn't feel like I was getting a sales pitch at all and had a great day of shopping!
