I definitely recommend Julian Gold Bridal if you don't mind splurging on a designer dress.

Every time we visited the shop was a great experience. From trying on dresses to accessorizing and fittings. The staff was amazing-- especially Amber. And I cannot say enough great things about their alterations dept.

I could spend hours talking with Barbie at Julian Gold. She is the sweetest, kindest and most helpful lady. She outfitted me to perfection, loved my veil and flowers. They have the best dress selection in San Antonio, for bridal and bridesmaids. She made what was turning into a miserable experience with the bridesmaids dresses into a fabulous one! And the dresses were perfect.

I bought my dress 6 months before my wedding. I went with my mom, mother in-law, and part of my bridal party! We had a blast! My sales consultant was very helpful and friendly. The only issue I had was when picking up my dress my MIL and Grandmother wanted me to try on my dress. So I called to tell them when I was picking it up. The lady on the phone proceeded to tell me she didn't have time to help me if I had any questions about my dress and that I couldn't pick it up from the bridal area that I would have to try it on downstairs. It really put me off. First who knows if I am going to have questions... I didn't. Anyways when I got there my dress wasn't even ready. I was so frustrated. They scrambled to press it, sew on a hook and eye, and press the veil. I suggest you get your veil somewhere else. I paid way too much for it! My dress was beautiful. They encouraged me to get it a size larger than I wanted. So I needed alterations. They wanted me to pay $475 to get it altered. I took it somewhere else and paid $125.00. It turned out beautifully.

Everyone was very friendly. I was working with a very limited budget. They worked with me and helped it to be the best experience!

Barbie and the entire bridal department at Julian Gold took such good care of me through the wedding dress selection, alterations and fittings process. I found my dress immediately and they made ordering it so easy and told me to wait until a trunk show would be going on so I could receive a discount. Upon it arriving we did several fittings requiring multiple alterations and they handled it so perfectly and made me feel so at ease and comfortable. Each time I went in I felt more and more beautiful. They had everything ready when it needed to be and put me in such good hands. I got my bridesmaids dresses at Julian God as well and received a discount and the dresses were absolutely gorgeous! They color was perfect and they literally looked great on every one of my bridesmaids. They were perfect! They're a wonderful bridal salon with beautiful merchandise and take very good care of their clients! I would recommend them to any bride looking for her dress or bridesmaids dresses!

When shopping for wedding dresses in San Antonio, we thought Julian Gold would be our best choice in San Antonio because they are a well known, upscale establishment. How wrong we were. Their entire bridal department employees needs to be retrained or replaced.
Upon our first visit, our bridal employee was very short and somewhat absent during the dress try ons. When coming back a second time to confirm that we had found the dress, we worked with a much more pleasurable employee. She was welcoming and helpful in our process. In one of those 2 visits, they took my measurements, asked my height, and asked if I needed extra length on my gown. I left this to their discretion -- thinking they were the professionals.
My dress came in (earlier than expected) and upon trying it on realized that it barely touched the floor when I was barefoot and had about a 2 inch gap above the floor with low heels or boots. Needless to say, I cried - my dress was too short!
They re-ordered my dress, expedited, with extra length added on. So, when it arrived, I came back in to try it on. I convinced myself that it was longer and much better, my mom kept telling me it was the same length as the other one. They took measurements, and I left.
I received a phone call later that week with my consultant informing me that they put me back in the old, short dress, and that I could come back in to try on the new, longer dress to re-do the measurements.
At this next fitting, my consultant told me, "One of the other ladies told me I should have just not told you! I just had to be honest with you and let you know." Excuse me???
At this point I was completely disgusted. We brought in a sales associate from downstairs who quickly changed the attitude of the bridal consultants. I had about 5 more fittings (still too many, with more hiccups) before my dress was done.
Little to say, I was completely dissatisfied with my experience and have heard similar stories from other brides who purchased their gowns here as well.

Yolanda was my consultant and she was fabulous. The customer service at Julian Gold is amazing. You will never have to worry about a thing when you get your dress here because the staff will make sure it is perfect. We are longtime customers to Julian Gold and so there was no question about where to buy the most special dress you will ever wear. Julian Gold is by far the best bridal salon in San Antonio!

I got my Monique Lhullier dress from Julian Gold. The whole experience was wonderful. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable without being pushy. The selection of dresses is great.

I purchased my dress and veil from here via their sample sale room. Great selection and was happy to support a wonderful store that my family has shopped in for generations

Julian Gold has gorgeous dresses, but more importantly their customer service is out of this world. I worked with Barbie, who is absolutely amazing and makes the entire experience a joy, although all of the consultants there are warm and friendly. I had an out of town wedding and when UPS lost my Vera Wang dress 4 days before the wedding, Barbie, Amber and the rest of the team at Julian Gold could not have been more wonderful with helping me find a new dress and alter it in time. Fortunately, UPS ultimately found my original dress and I was able to wear it on my wedding day, but I am so thankful to Barbie and Julian Gold for all that they did. If I could give them a 10 stars, I would!

My experience at Julian Gold was awesome. I loved the dress, and my seamstress, Dora, did an awesome job making a bolero that I could wear during the ceremony (the church required my shoulders to be covered). I was then able to remove it for the reception, and it was like I had a whole new dress! The service is awesome--definitely ask for Yoli & Dora.

Julian Gold was so easy to work with. We were on a time crunch and worked with me to make sure my dress was perfect. We added straps to mine and they did an incredible job "making a new dress."

Barbie is the absolute best!!! It was such a joy working with her and her staff. Best bridal salon in SA!

I feel in love with a Christos wedding gown, way out of my original budget and they were willing to sell me the same to make it more affordable. Everyone that worked there was great and they had tons of beautiful designer gowns!

Julian Gold was wonderful, in the sense that the staff is great, they kept my dress in storage for a REALLY long time (I got it waaay before my wedding date), and that the dress was on time and absolutely beautiful.
However. They didn't double-check the beading on my dress after my bridal portrait, nor did they sew the bustle on my dress, even though they promised me they would!
Not that it mattered -- I'm super laid-back and just tucked the end of my dress into the back of my dress so that people wouldn't trip on it during the reception. But still.
You'd think that when you pay upwards of $4K for a dress, they'd do the small adjustments.
