Make sure you get Paloma. Within one minute of talking to me, she easily sensed my style and vibe. She chose great dresses to try on and made sure each one looked stunning when I stepped out to show my friend. She has a talent for reading people and is so sweet and genuine at the same time. After looking at a few places, I really must say the shop itself was awesome. It's pretty inside, with a boutique feel, great lighting, windows, lots of full mirrors and places for trying on without crowding other brides. Often, I've seen shops with huge selections but with unattractive shops/warehouse feel or the flip side, stunning storefronts but limited selections or outrageous price points. This was worth a visit since you have the boutique feel inside, but with a nice selection and price. Paloma was kind, professional (she confirmed my appointment and was so professional, yet personal at all times during the fitting) and she made it an enjoyable experience. The only downside to this is that drinks are not allowed by the owner. So, no mimosas or champagne...unless you find the dress, then the owner may allow it. That said, Paloma's grace, charm and genuine interest in you looking great for your big day made up for any lack of beverages. I could go on and on about her. The dresses were gorgeous and at decent price ranges. We were impressed with the variety of designers and PALOMA!
The attendants are booked with multiple people on busy days. So if you were hoping to feel like a special bride, go elsewhere. Also when my dress came in, alterations just ignored me until I was walking out the door. They also had my dress in a clear plastic bag that wasn't long enough to c…
This store has the rudest staff of any bridal store I've shopped at. If I could rate them a zero I would. From the incompetent manager to the incapable staff running around not knowing their policies, not knowing policies, and making you feel like YOU need them and not the other way around...Eve…
We used Mel and Hector for our daughter's engagement and wedding photographer. Photographs are outstanding and wedding video is best I have ever seen. Wonderful people to work with and absolutely the best prices around.
I was looking for a dress and Bride's by Elizabeth had just what I needed. She assured me that if I couldn't find it there she would be able to accommodate my request by looking herself and making/remaking one to my specifications. Highly recommended! A++ Lovely proprietor.
Started shopping 4 mths before my wedding & so thankful I found Mayfair! Went to 5 other places before Mayfair & they were by far the best. I went with pictures of dresses I liked & the woman who assisted me (Valida) was amazing! She was so patient & help me find the perfect d…
I recently visited Celebrations after visiting many bridal stores in the Austin and San Antonio area. I have to say, I was impressed right away! They were very busy on a Saturday, but they were able to squeeze me in when I called that morning. Upon arrival, my family and I were escorted to th…

We didn't have an appointment, but they were friendly and helpful, but NOT pushy, from the moment we walked in the door. We wanted to try the dress on the mannequin, and they pulled it down immediately. They offered suggestions, but only after asking several questions to determine what style and…

How can people be so crude. The store just opened. So when you get your dress from the internet, let me try it on.? You probably spent some good money on it, and you too would like nothing to happen to it. All these early reviews look to be slanderous. Looks as if other bridal shops trying to kill the competition. Would you rather have the bridal shop tell you that dress doesn't look good on you or your friends? As far as the owner/manager how do you know its a her, seems as if you have a problems with authority, or old bosses. Do you know if the alleged was not just fallowing company policies, and decided to remedy it by opening a shop for themselves. Think before you post. I personal have not gone but plan to give any independent shop a chance. Update to latest review Obviously the store owner made a wise choice on not hiring this individual. This person who made this off the cuff review single handedly ruined there son or husbands chance of a good start in this business. When you have a chance you can invest your money and start your own business and higher whom ever you like. Most employers merely agree to see if the person qualifies for the intended position, and you do what is right for the business. Race and gender is a false blame today's society is too divers and have equal opportunity.
I came to Destiny Bridal after my sister-in-law recommended Maria to me. My sister-in-law went to Destiny Bridal for her wedding (well, to Maria since it was before their grand opening) and told me that Maria (the owner) was wonder. I was not disappointed. From the moment I stepped into the store, I felt absolutely welcomed. Both she and her staff were wonderful and understanding. I had been to half a dozen other bridal stores in town and every time I told them what I was looking for, they tried to dissuade me from the style I wanted. Not at Destiny Bridal. Though they did not have the dress that I wanted to try (because it is from next spring's line and it hasn't yet been released), they promised to order it right away in time for my wedding in March. The set up in the store is great. It's not overly cluttered or disorganized. The salespersons know their dresses and accessories and understand a bride's needs. I felt very at ease explaining what I liked and didn't like. I felt no pressure to purchase anything and was given all the time I needed to try on dresses that I actually liked. The customer service was excellent. I would absolutely recommend Destiny Bridal to anyone. I have personally worked with Maria and Marilyn and I had not a single complaint.
This bridal boutique is the best in San Antonio. I ordered my wedding dress from here, and the owner was wonderful! She was very knowledgeable and an expertise within the wedding industry. I wanted a specialty dress from Maggie Sottero and Maria was very efficient and full of good advice. She also helped my bridesmaids which were all plus size. She made them feel good and comfortable about themselves and their unique dress. She even gave me relationship advice when I asked. Simply wonderful and beautiful. Her staff is also very knowledgeable and friendly. I recommend Destinhy Bridal to everyone who needs a dress for a special occassion, especially for the most important dress of your life. Thank you Destiny Bridal for making my dreams come true.
I highly recommend Bridal Connection. The staff, especially Lexy, is amazing! Lexy is a wealth of knowledge. I came in with a photo of a dress I liked and based off of that, Lexy brought me a number of dresses that matched my style and body type. She also got me into each of the dresses, which not all bridal shops do. The seamstress came out and gave me a quote while I was in the shop on my second visit when I purchased the dress of my dreams. I was also extremely impressed with their selection of dresses for bridesmaids. Wonderful shop! Professional, helpful and friendly staff. Thanks to Lexy and The Bridal Connection, picking out my wedding dress was one of my most favorite wedding planning moments.
I bought a gown from another Salon that got ruined, so I entered The Bridal Salon Of San Antonio thinking there was no hope. The staff helped me find my dream gown and didnt allow me to make the purchase until they could verify that the vendor could get it to me in time. We got it two weeks earlier than they said. The owner Amy, and the seamstress Ana, stayed late one evening to accomidate my fitting. I read the reviews below and I cant even believe they could be true. Amy's staff is very well trained and you can tell they are genuine in loving to help brides. They have the absolute best selection of designer wedding gowns and bridesmaids and teh best service I have ever experienced. Sarah
Roman and his staff at the Bridal Connection were absolutely wonderful. I went to a couple other shops and the consultants made me feel like a piece of meat and a walking dollar sign. I actually felt special while in their shop. Ralph didn't stop until she found the dress for me, she wasn't pushy, didn't try to push a sale on me and she was extremely patient even when I felt like I was being really picky or indescisive. My experience at Bridal Connection was the best compared to all the other places I had been. I would recommend Bridal Connection to anyone. Roman practices a business of complete honesty and all about the customer. Love this shop!!
Started shopping 4 mths before my wedding & so thankful I found Mayfair! Went to 5 other places before Mayfair & they were by far the best. I went with pictures of dresses I liked & the woman who assisted me (Valida) was amazing! She was so patient & help me find the perfect dress. It takes about 3 mths for a dress to come in but it arrived exactly when promised. The seamstress did an excellent job & within 2 wks I had my dress. Although it is a small shop & space is tight, if you go a minimum of 4 mths before your wedding date with pictures of what you're looking for they will do all they can to assist you.
Maria is wonderful!!! i must have tired on 6 dresses before choosing one and tried that one on again after all the other dresses...she was helpful, funny, listened to me 'the bride' and was polite to my family that came with me and always redirected the attention back to me when family made suggestions on dresses they thought i should buy. Maria knows what she is doing, suggesting dresses i would never consider and that's how i found "the one" i love love love my dress!!!!! i went to 4 other places which lacked personality. she never pushed the sale on me, told me to take my time and discuss it with my family.
I absolutely had the BEST experience at Gautier. Im a plus size girl and before visiting Gautier I had been to 10 other stores ranging from Austin, San Marcos, and Dallas.The staff was SO helpful and had provided their best services. I told the lady what kind of dress I was going more towards and my price range and she gave me a good amount of dresses to pick from. The price of the dresses are SO much better compared to other dress stores around the area and had a better variety to pick from. Wouldn't go anywhere else but this place, I will be returning here for my senior prom dress and any other upcoming special events.
