Jeanie was amazing and so helpful! The store is beautiful and they have a large dress selection ranging in all prices. Although they take more than one appt at a time, you are set up with a private room large enough to have a few friends and family tag along. Jeanie was beyond helpful at listening to my ideas and finding the perfect gowns. She was great at making suggestions regarding veils, shoes, colors, etc. A true professional. I found my perfect gown and Here Comes The Bride and am excited to have such a great team of ladies to work with making it just right for my wedding day.

I recently bought my wedding dress from HCTB. The staff is professional, helpful, and accommodating. I don't have a single glitch to report. My dress was stunning! I highly recommend HCTB.

This wedding dress shop is the best one you will find in San Diego. They have tons of dresses that have a high range in price. I found my dream dress that was the Lismora Rivini stunner.
Their customer service is awesome. They really made the whole experience so special and personal.

After visiting some real duds while looking for a dress, Here Comes the Bride was a godsend. It has a lot of variety and a broad price range. Jeanie helped me find the perfect dress, in my price range, with everything I had wanted. She made me feel special and important, listened to my concerns and wants, and promptly delivered a whole slew of appropriate dresses to try. Although they were extremely busy, they didn't make me feel hurried or neglected. After one visit and a quick follow-up, we had found the perfect dress! They helped me with a rush order and me only complaint was that the girl who handled the paperwork said it would be there earlier than it arrived...it was about three weeks later than what they projected when I bought it...which left only a few days before my wedding. It did cause a lot of unnecessary stress right before my destination wedding but they did alterations immediately and quite swiftly, so I feel like they made it right. Overall, a wonderful experience and I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking in SoCal!

Okay so I read the reviews about this place ,as well as a few others , on Yelp and on these Knot reviews...I was a little cautious when it came to whether I should go to this store or not after reading a couple mixed reviews . In the end I figured why not? After all, I hear they have beautiful dresses.
You walk into the store and it is by far much nicer/cleaner then all the bridal salons I had previously gone to. Don't even get me started on the dresses- I wanted to try them all on! I wasnt sure what kind of dress I was looking for but the manager Rebecca had like a 6th sense when it came to what I liked lol .
I found "the dress" on day 1. For my next appointment I came in to find accesories , they had so many choices that it took me a while to narrow down which pieces I loved the most. I thought it was really nice of them not to rush me out even after I took forever to look at each bracelet, necklace, and pair of earings.
I did get a little nervous that my dress would come in late but guess what? It came in 2 weeks early :)
Martha the seamstress did a great job on my dress and I must say I had an overall great exprience.

I loved the store, the experience and the service. I was very happy with my dress, though I did go over budget. They helped to stay in budget but in the end when I wasn't finding what I wanted then they brought me more at a high price point. They were very upfront with the cost of the dresses.

I LOVED my dress!! I went to HCTB after two other bridal stores, and had no idea of what I wanted in a dress. I worked with Karina, and she patiently put me in dozens of dresses, listening to the things I liked and did not like in each dress. Then, she put this all together in her head, and pulled my dress (one I had looked at on the rack and passed up), added a belt and a train, and BAM! I was in love! If nothing else at the wedding worked out, I would have been just fine with that, because I loved my dress!
I also did the alteration at HCTB. Martha is great! I snagged my dress during our first fitting (hang nail – ugh!!!), and she worked out the snag on the spot! After everything was said and done, the dress fit perfectly and it came together beautifully. I did not pay for my alterations, since the manager (Rebecca??) at HCTB comped them for me. Can’t beat that!!

I needed a dress in less than four months and they worked with me. Very helpful and an amazing tailor.

I can't say enough good things about HCTB. I had excellent service from the start. My dress arrived on time; however, the manufacturer made a mistake and the dress was one size too small! Kayla from HCTB handled the crisis with grace and made me feel confident that they could make it happen for me. My new dress arrived in a week and it was amazing. From their sales team to their seamstresses, they were so wonderful! I also had a custom veil made from my mother's original veil and they handled her veil with such care and it turned out exactly like I wanted. I felt that their service as well as the style of dresses were well matched.

I bought my dress and veil from Here Comes the Bride. Everyone there was extremely helpful and friendly. Bonus points for having alterations available on-site, very convenient to have a one stop shop!

I love my dress and I went to a few places and found it here right away. I did run into a few problems. I think they ordered too small of a dress, the sample fit me like a glove and they ordered the same size, only the sample was stretched out. The good thing is the seamstress was skilled, but I had to let it out as much as the dress would allow. Then my veil. I ordered it like 6 mo in advance and every fitting I asked if they had it. When it got to 10 days before my wedding I was getting pretty nervous and they finally told me they have been having some problems with the designer and it probably wouldn't be in in time. I was so upset. I ended up at the shop 4 days before my wedding and took a sample veil for free. So I guess when I see that everything worked out in the end it is not so bad

I loved my dress so much! When I tried it on it was in black, I was so nervous but I loved the fit and they showed me other ivory dresses by the same designer and I loved it.

My consultant was great! I told him what I was looking for and he had exactly that! The ambiance is nice and I like that you get your own room and privacy for trying on the dresses.

The experience at Here Comes the Bride is unlike any other. I love the huge selection of all styles and designers of dresses as well as private rooms for you and your entourage. The manager is fantastic and made me feel really special and ready for my big day, I would highly reccomend finishing your dress hunt here :) Veils however were way too expensive.

I loved my wedding dress. It was absolutely what I wanted. I felt a bit pressured to buy quickly at this shop at times. The best part of the experience was during my fittings with the alterations staff. They were fantastic. Every little wrinkle was addressed and I was beyond satisfied with the final product!

I had a great experience shopping and buying my wedding dress at Here Comes the Bride. Ray helped me find the perfect dress on the first try. He listened to my likes, dislikes, and most importantly - budget. Ray helped me find my dream dress that day! They have a nice selection of all sorts of dresses, and it’s a wonderful atmosphere. The shop has private rooms so it was a more intimate experience, and I felt very comfortable working with Ray. I decided to also have Here Comes the Bride do the alterations on it, which was a great decision. Bertha was lovely and kind. She was easy to work with and very talented. Thank you!
Here Comes the Bride has lots of different style of dresses to choose from. My dress was within my budget and has quality fabric. My only complaint was they charged me for adding cups inside my dress after I already paid them their flat rate of $500 for alterations (you can have your dress altered as many times as you want or need with that charge).
I really liked Here Comes the Bride. My dress was absolutely beautiful, quality made and was in my budget. The only thing that bothered me was that I paid $500 for alterations which means to you can have it altered as many times as you want and need, but they charged me for adding cups inside my dress. That is my only complaint.

I found my dress on the first day I went looking. It was a sample dress, and I had to move fast. I walked away, thought about it, and checked out a few other dresses before making my decission. Julie, the girl who helped me, was so sweet, she called to check in on me and had me come in again to try it on. Ultimately, they made it work with my budget and I was thrilled. Well...Julie moved on...I went back and tried on veils with my dress and another gal, she was sweet...and moved on
I ended up moving away from San Diego because of work, and tried to organize my fittings according to trips when I was home in San Diego. They would not work with me at all!!!! When I went back in to try it on one more time before I was left with no choice but to take it to another place for alterations. They were so rude! They said they would have the dressed cleaned and ready for me to try on again, I had even made an appointment. I waited 40 min. in the lobby to try on a dress I had already bought. Then they literally put it in my room and walked away. Didn't even help me put it on. I asked to simply speak to a tailor...wouldn't let me. Went from a great experience to a terrible one pretty quickly. I spent a lot of money there, granted it was a great deal beiang a sample, but I feel like I still deserved better service at the end.
