I had such a great experience shopping for my wedding dress at la Boutique des brides. When I met Hilda I just knew that I was at the right place after trying on so many dresses and encoutering all sorts of sales persons,and Hilda was what I needed.
Hilda helped me find THE DRESS that I wanted and helped me as if she had known me for years, and even when her mom passed away Hilda did not forget about her clients.
We ordered my dress somewhat late, but it got here on time because Hilda wanted to make sure that I have a great experience.
I would highly recommend la boutique des brides to all that are looking to buy bridal gowns and accessoiries. I have my beautiful dress and I feel that I have made a good friend Hilda.
Hilda, thank you very much for all of your help and once again I am sorry for your mom.

I had to find a dress on short notice and Boutique des Brides made the process completely trouble-free. Owner Hilda Marangosian is a wonderful woman to work with: warm, elegant and with a genuine love of the business. When I fell in love with a very special Pronovias gown from the current collection, she did everything she could to try to order a rush cut from the design house for me. When that didn't work with my timeline, she ended up letting me buy the sample, despite not having a replacement gown to show. Most bridal boutiques won't even speak to you if your wedding date is less than 3 months out. Hilda goes far beyond typical bridal service with a warm, caring attitude that makes the shopping experience absolutely wonderful. For brides looking for excellent service at a great price, I can't recommend this highly enough.

I recently purchased my wedding dress from La Boutique. It was the best experience I had shopping for a wedding dress. While the other fancier shops did not listen to me and applied sales pressure, Hilda and here crew allowed me to find what I wanted without any pressure. They were most concerned with me finding the best dress for me. The store is quite small, so be patient if you have to wait for one of the two dressing rooms. Also, it may seem a little disorganized, but don't worry, Hilda and the others have it under control. Bonne Chance!

3 months before my wedding last year, the seamstress I hired to make a simple alteration to my gown ruined my dress!!! Most stores in San Francisco refused to even see me with such a short timeline and I was ready to panic - until I called La Boutique.
Hilda immediately gave me confidence that I was going to get the dress I wanted with no worries about timing. I believed she could make it happen and she did. Not only was the service professional, the alterations perfect and the gown everything I wanted, Hilda went out of her way to make sure I felt comfortable along the way.
I got a beautiful dress at a great price, and best of all, was able to avoid snooty salons who couldn't be bothered to help a bride-in-need!

I had the best experience in this store. I would highly recommend this shop to anyone looking for a wedding dress. Hilda is a sweet lady who truly cares about her customers and making sure that they have the ""perfect dress"" for their wedding day not just about selling you ""a dress"". I went to several shops and wasn't able to try on many dresses because I am not a size 10 or smaller as are most sample dresses in the stores. Hilda made me feel like the beautiful bride that I know I will be, which was not the experience I had at many other stores. Hilda suggested a dress that I would never have picked out on my own but it ended up being just perfect!!! She has many years of experience and knows what will look amazing on your body type. Hilda is wonderful and I can't wait until my dress comes in to see her again!!

So I read some of the bad review regarding this shop...I guess perhaps it is approach. I called in advance and had a specific dress in mind, Hilda confirmed they had it and I scheduled an appointment. The day of the appointment she had the dress ready for me to try on when I walked in the door. I got lucky that the dress I had picked out was the one that I ended up purchasing. Of course, I didn't think it should be that easy and so they suggested that I try on another dress that I liked to compare. The second dress paled in comparison to the first.
If others are considering this shop and are concerned about service from previous reviews, I would suggest: Checking out the website, they offers a large collection from watters and paloma blanca and call ahead for an appointment.
