I felt like Cinderella when she found her Fairy God Mother. Chantal and Said were full of enthusiasm and panache. They had a magical ability not only to see the unusual but also to help me experience the beauty of each dress I tried to the fullest. In the weeks leading up to the wedding, Chantal and Saida were most receptive to the ideas I shared in terms of my atypical fashion sensibility. They were communicative, honest and encouraging and by the time the wedding arrived I felt like they were family... I even invited them to attend. My wedding took place in the South of France and the ladies remained extremely candid yet diplomatic in putting up with my 'ahem' colorful and unusual flair. Being French, they knew exactly what would work and wouldn't and yet they helped me find a dress that was both reflective of my personality and the type of reception I was going to hold.

Honestly, don't go anywhere else! I never expected to find my dream dress in San Mateo, but after being pretty disappointed by a couple places in SF, this place was a breath of fresh air and made shopping for a dress fun, as it should be! The two women who work at this shop, Chantal and Saida, are awesome and give great and honest advice! Even though I was on a budget, they were really nice, not at all snobby, and they let me look around. I tried on one dress that was pretty and then they suggested another dress for me to try on because they thought it would look good on me, and I absolutely loved it!!! If they hadn't suggested the dress, I might not have even thought to try this particular style on and that is why I am so glad we went here!! They know their stuff when it comes to dressing and accessorizing a bride!
I spent a few hours with Chantal and Saida a few weeks ago in their beautiful salon. Being in the wedding industry, I thought I knew a lot about bridal gowns. After listening to them, I realized how little I knew. Talking with them, I learned that it is better to select the gown first and then choose the venue. I'm changing the advice that I give to my clients about securing the venue prior to selecting the gown. The gown will dictate the feel of the wedding. Not only do they offer one of a kind gowns, but they provide the ultimate in service. If you want excellent service and one of a kind bridal designs and accessories, I highly recommend Nouvelle Vogue.
