After going to several bridal stores in town and not having found my dress I decide to stop buy at Sophie chang Inc. The location was central and accessible, from downtown Portland.I did not made an appointment, lucky for me there was an opening and I meet the designer Sophie chang and her assistant Kristina, the shop looked elegant modern clean and organize, they only carry gowns and bridesmaids dresses. Sophie and Kristina were so caring sweet and patient as they helped me, figuring out what I wanted in my dress. Sophie’s gowns are beautiful and one of a kind design.it was my first time in the store i find out Sophie design all her gowns; she gave me several choice to start up. They have 2 lines to pick from one line is 100%, made in Oregon, that made me very happy because i support local. She also suggested custom design if i could not find anything from their samples, and a free sketch. Although their gowns started at about a thousand and go to about four thousand my budget set around 2000$ I had lots of choices, and selecting a good grade of silk for my wedding gown, was very important I want to look good, on my wedding day. This was December 2012, after spent about 2 hours with Sophie I realize she is very detailed oriented and wanted to make sure I find the perfect gown for my wedding day. We began trying out about seven gowns and finally I found the perfect dress for me.Sophie was super friendly and helpful, listen to what I wanted gave all her attention and the time I needed to pick my dress, the dress that I fell in love with was slightly more than my budget, I did not mind I appreciated she wanted my business. I had bad experiences elsewhere and this place was a breath of fresh air. This little bridal shop was absolutely one of the best customer services experiences I have ever had. Sophie and Kristina made me feel very special, and they were very honest with me not like some other boutiques rush me into something I did not like it. after spending few hours in the store It was time to make decision. I order the dress right away and my search was finally over .Sophie told me the dress will be ready in about four months and like promise the dress arrived ready for my first fitting. The very next day I went in for my first fitting The dress was gorgeous and fitted like a glove. There was only one issue around the bust was slightly bigger maybe because I lost few pounds, Sophie suggested I should use a different bra or we could do small alteration, after two more fittings everything worked out fine, I pick up my dress steamed and bagged ready to wear. I am so happy I stop by this boutique They were so helpful and very professional during the entire process; I would definitely recommend this boutique to any bride to be.
After looking over the packet they gave me when I reserved my tuxedos for my wedding I found a card that was asking for a good review. Normally I don't do reviews for any company BUT I felt as though I needed to do one because of how helpful the manager was that I was working with. If anyone is looking for great service, please see Shaunte at the Mr. Formal by Washington Square. She helped us for over an hour. I was concerned about renting a tuxedo because I'm almost 7 feet tall. Suprisingly, all the suits I was interested in came in my size! Thanks for the great service!
Sophie Chang Collection is the Best in Portland! I got Sophie's name from a friend who married last year. I was at her wedding party and just loved her dress. So I went to Sophie Chang at her old location Beaverton( Now is in downtown Portland) with my Mom and quickly fell in love with one of the gowns, Ordered the same day and received on time! When I recevied the dress, I was soooo suprised that the dress even looked more beautiful than I imagined! Absolutely! I would recommended this shop!!!
