This was the experience I imagined!    posted 9/30/2012

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.

Wedding Dress Shop    posted 8/18/2012

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.

Dream wedding dress    posted 10/7/2011

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.

A great place to experience being a bride!    posted 6/29/2011

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!

Great experience    posted 6/29/2011

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.

Spring 2010    posted 5/23/2011

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.

Great Service    posted 11/12/2010

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!!

Here Comes The Bride    posted 7/15/2010

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.

Everyone at Here comes the Bride was so helpful along the way. I had seen a dress on line I knew I wanted to try on. They tracked down the designer had it shipped in for me and it was Perfect! The dress arrival was delayed longer than i was originally told, But they rushed alterations and helped everuthing turn out Perfect with time to spare.

Great selection, service okay.    posted 4/10/2014 (updated 4/11/2014)

HCTB has the best selection, wide range of prices, tons of visiting designers, and a very good balance of styles. Your appointments for trying on will be great- good attention, despite getting clipped so hard I bled, but once you purchase their scheduling for fittings are very difficult, and their staff made multiple mistakes on my appointments.

Loved my dress!    posted 4/3/2014 (updated 4/4/2014)

HCTB was excellent. They have good selection and their dresses are arranged by price, so that was really helpful in keeping within budget. I had a rough start with my first consultant, but the manager, Rebecca, has done everything to make it better.
The alterations to my dress were flawless and done very early. Bertha works wonders!

Wedding dress    posted 10/20/2013

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.

Best Selection, Great Service    posted 8/29/2013

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.

Wedding Dress    posted 8/24/2013

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!

Wedding Dress and Alterations    posted 5/29/2013

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!
