I kept reading bad reviews of Mon Amie and totally feared going. It was only my second stop of my first day looking. Susan listened to me regarding budget and style and even helped pull dresses with wiggle room in the budget I gave her. I chose a dress that was actually well within and under. (The reason they don't want you looking at dresses outside of your budget is because they don't want you to fall in love with a dress you can't afford and be heartbroken!) Suzanne fitted my dress so precisely that at my first fitting, we found no alterations needed to be done except installing the bustle. NOTHING! And it's only the prettiest dress that's ever been created <3 Thank you Mon Amie!!!

Mon Amie was perfect for finding my wedding dress. My wedding dress was the first I tried on. The women working there were extremely helpful, and the seamstress, Gloria, was amazing and lovely to work with. I recommend this salon to everyone. It could not have been better!

I had a lady named Virginia help me pick out my dress. She was awesome she was so organized and knew her stuff! I ended up going with the dress she picked out for me.

Huge selection with lots of variety, and good prices for Orange County. My sales gal was not pushy in the least and gave me lots of time to decide. Dress came a little late (although they warned me when I selected it), so leave lots of time. Alternations were a breeze. I also got my bridesmaids' dresses in their affiliated bridesmaid salon and my girls looked beautiful.

The ladies at Mon Amie were so helpful while I was looking for "the dress". I had a specific design in mind and I was able to find it there among their large selection of dresses. My mom got her wedding dress there 30 years ago so you know they're doing something right!

I made three bridal salon appointments, and Mon Amie was my first one of the day. I had already researched a dress I was interested in trying on prior to visiting the store. I contacted Mon Amie about the dress, and they informed me that they had it and they would have it in my dressing room when I arrived to my appointment! I absolutely loved this service! My consultant was so sweet and told me not to be afraid to tell her if I didn't like a suggestion she made. I ended up purchasing the dress they had waiting for me and I cancelled my other two appointments for that day! My dress was perfect on my wedding; I felt like a princess!

Now granted 6 months is consider a quick time period to plan a wedding, the folks at this Mon Amie Salon squeeze you in to a one hour appt. with brides before and after you. You try on as many as you can in that time. And then they told me I had to pick one of these because if I did not, I would not have a dress for my wedding. I found later this wasn't true and they just pressured me to make a decision. Then once you pay, they leave you with cards and numbers to call with any questions, no one ever return my calls. Once the dress did arrive they tried to charge rushed alteration fees because their seamstress was going on vacation. I found the service very impersonal. This all said, the dress, even though was not what I wanted because they led me to believe I had no other choice, was very nice quality and fit me perfect.

I felt like a princess because of Mon Amie. The staff always made me feel like a perfect bride.
After getting a dress from David's Bridal, I was nervous about jumping into another purchase. But the bridal consultant was so friendly and calming. She knew I was nervous and I was scared to purchase a second dress.
But she found the best dress! Even though it originally had straps, she knew if they took them off, it would look gorgeous on my body. She was right!
I love my Mon Amie dress so much. I wish I could wear it every day!

I got my wedding dress at Mon Amie and was super satisfied with the dress. The business is a little stuffy and strict for my liking, but what can you do - i fell in love with the dress so I had to get it from Mon Amie!
They are pretty uptight about taking pictures, when you order/how much time you need for that, and the alterations are expensive... but everyone was very sweet and professional, so I appreciated that!!

I still can't believe the lady at Mon Amie was able to know exactly what dress I was looking or after not finding anything I liked on the sales floor. The whole team is awesome to work with. The seamstress even fixed the bodice on my dress within 24 hours as I was leaving out of town. And my dress is just drop dead gorgeous!

I purchased my dress on clearance at Mon Amie. I had Susan as my consultant. SHe was very kind and understood what i wanted exactly. She actually picked out the dress i purchased. She knew my budget was small so she brought in a manager to help me cut down on the alterations bill. I had Esmie as my alterations person. SHe did a fantastic job bringing in the dress, permanently bustling the train and adding shoulder straps to the dress. My only complaint is that the manager told me alterations price would be $500 and it turned out to be $675. I did nothing different than what we originally talked about. So i was not happy with the price discrepancy. That is the only reason i put the service at a 4.

Loved working with Mon Amie! Their dresses are so beautiful and the overall experience with them was fabulous!

My dress shopping experience was easier than I had anticipated it to be. I really thought I was going to be one of those picky girls who would end up trying a million dress. Surprisingly with the expertise of my consultant I only tried on four dresses before I found the one! I was able to customize a bit by removing some extra floral design it had and the straps all for about $500! Its a great place and they have dresses for the moms and flower girls too. Theyre accessories are a little pricey but the dresses are definitely worth it!

I got my gown here at Mon Amie. My experience wedding shopping was amazing. I had only gone to David's Bridal before going to Mon Amie and right away noticed the difference in the quality of the dresses and customer service. I was greeted and taken to a nice area where my all my girls were ever to sit down. I had a consultant who actually knew what she was doing and what she was talking about. She brought me loads of dresses and let my family pick some out too. She was extremely friendly and didn't rush me at all.
David's bridal is the worst place to go. They are the puppy mil of wedding dress shopping.
The dresses are a bit pricey and so are the alterations but I already knew what I was planning on spending. I just wish the salon was closer and not 1hr drive from me (2hrs with traffic) but I was happy with my gown and the service.

Not only did this salon have the most selection, from reasonably priced to very expense designer gowns, but they were so nice and extremely easy to work with. Anything you want done to your dress they are willing to work with you and make alterations perfect. Would definitely recommend to all my friends and family!

While my overall experince with Mon Amie ended up positively I am giving them 4 stars for a few weeks of panic. First the good news about my experience. Mon Amie was my first bridal gown appointment, In fact I wasn't even planning on purchasing my dress, I was just looking to get ideas while my mom was in town visiting. However, our bridal consultant was quite helpful. She met with me, found out my budget and than we started looking through an overwhelming number of dresses. We settled on 6 to bring into the dressing room. I fell in love with the second dress I tried and knew it was the one for me. I placed my order, including a veil, and was given a date that my dress would arrive. Based on the date I knew there would be plenty of time for alterations if needed. Now for the weeks of panic. My dress didn't arrive when it was supposed to, in fact it took about a month after the promised date for the dress to arrive. This is not the time you need added stress in an already stressful process. When my dress arrived it needed alterations and I worked with Esmie. She was a blessing. So calm and experienced she put my fears at ease and told me the dress would be done in plenty of time and would fit me perfectly. She was true to her word. She completed the alterations, they were perfect and the dress was amazing.

Overall, I had a great experience. It gets particularly better once you decide to buy there which isn't always the case. I would definitely recommend to other brides.
