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.

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 dress    posted 5/13/2014 (updated 5/14/2014)

This was the only bridal salon that had my dream dress, Justin Alexander 8465 in coffee/ivory. The staff were friendly but the store was difficult to get to, especially coming from Temecula. The woman who ordered the dress for us forgot to order additional fabric for my veil and sleeve caps even though we had talked about it before ordering the dress. She ordered the fabric after my dress came in but she didn't order enough fabric for both so we had to use a completely different fabric for the veil, and she still charged us the full price for the veil. It turned out fine but it's just disappointing that she dropped the ball. If they hadn't been the closet salon with my dream dress then I probably wouldn't have gone there.

Gorgeous Dresses    posted 4/17/2014 (updated 4/18/2014)

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

Love My Dress    posted 10/15/2013

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!

Good place to try a bunch of different styles on    posted 5/15/2013

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.

Great! ...and NOT so great    posted 2/23/2013

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.

Great place to get your wedding dress!    posted 12/4/2012

I live in San Diego but our wedding was in Stillwater, Mn, so traveling with a wedding dress on an airplane did bring up my stress level a bit. I bought the wedding dress of my dreams at Here Comes the Bride, and the price was much less than I expected, especially for the style of dress I picked. The staff at Here Comes the Bride was very easy to work with and listened to what I was looking for in a wedding dress, I felt so beautiful in my gown on my big day. Also, their alterations staff was easy to work with and did great work, even in a few hours. I had 3 dress fittings, on the second I thought the dress fit perfect. At the 3, I found out I was much smaller (and the dress slipped off of me) than at the second fitting, I was also suppose to leave for Minnesota in 2 days for my wedding the next week, I wanted to cry! However, Bertha said "No problem, just give me a couple hours". My dress fit me like a glove in a matter of a few hours, it was AMAZING!! They also vacuum seal the dress into a small package so it can be carried onto an airplane, so you don't have to worry about shipping or losing it. The dress needs to be pressed for sure after the vacuum sealing but it works great if you need to travel with your dress. Great place to buy a wedding dress!!

love my dress...don't love the place    posted 11/1/2012

I have mixed feeling about this place. I love my dress and it was perfect for my wedding but there are a few things stopping me from giving 5 stars. First of all, the place is always freezing and the girls at the front desk are not the most welcoming. They only do alterations on Tuesdays and Fridays, so for those of us actually working a full time 9-6 job, that makes it pretty hard to have the 3+ fittings that they recommend 1 month before the wedding. The girl doing the alterations never really understood what I wanted but thankfully by the end, my dress turned out alright. Lastly, I bought a Jim Hjelm dress, but the tag said a different name on my actual dress which made me wonder if I paid more that I should have for that dress. All in all, I would recommend shopping around before coming here, but you will probably end up here anyways since SD doesn't have the best selection of dresses.

They were helpful the day of finding my dress, but after that were more difficult to work with. I was told I did NOT need to rush my dress and it would be in 3-4 weeks prior to the wedding, but it didn't come in until 2 weeks prior which was pushing it as I didn't live in town and needed alterations. They did accommodate my schedule to get me fitted but it wasn't with the seamstress. In the end, my dress was great, and almost as I had imagined, but it was slightly stressful along the way.
