I bought my wedding dress from House of Brides & Tuxedos in November , Maggie (the shop owner) has been SO wonderful from day one! As a curvy bride my experience at other more boutique dress shops was very negative. She is master seememstress with a wonderful personality and is really willing to work with you! 10 out of 10!

We walked into this wonderful shop with no appointment looking for a specific dress. Don't underestimate this quant little shop, Maggie was so warm and immediately found the bridesmaid dress we needed to try on, did our measurements, complimented us, and told us her deals. She made it so incredibly easy while making us laugh and smile. She said she'd immediately send in our order and we made an appointment to come in and try those ones on for any alterations thank you Maggie!!! You saved us!!!

This is the place to go to if you are looking for a wedding dress. I went to a bunch of places in Glendale and it was all the same service. Maggie at House of Brides makes the world of difference. I told her I wanted a certain princess type dress and she let me try one on but she ask if she could make a suggestion for a dress she thought would look great on my body and it did!! She gave me alot of information on how to make an informative decision on my dress. I am so blessed to have came here and worked with such an amazing person. Thank you Maggie for making my day special.

If you want detailed, quality, personal service at affordable prices, this is the salon for you. I was assisted in finding the perfect dress within my budget that made me look like a million bucks thanks to the owner who did not stop making alterations for me until it was perfect! Everything is explaine up front and every charge is outline in detail. I couldn’t be happier with the service here. I highly recommend this salon to any future bride!

Maggie was nice and the selection of dresses were absolutely gorgeous and she had a wide variety. She had good tips for my dress and her alterations were always on point. I loved my dress and my experience with her, Would definitely recommend checking out the store if you are in the area. Just a tip she's closed between 2pm and 3pm, which is understandable since it is just her running the store.

From the moment we walked through the door, Maggie made my daughter (the bride) and I feel instilled with confidence in her ability to locate and tailor the wedding gown of her dreams. Maggie delivers and does so with a kindness and calmness that every bride needs. I can’t say enough good things about this woman and her competency and competitive pricing as well as her warm heart. We miss visiting her for the fittings!

I had a great experience with Maggie and her staff! I got my wedding dress and my bridesmaids dresses here. Her prices are very reasonable (for wedding attire). Everyone was very friendly and helpful. She did all of the alterations in house and they turned out perfect! I am very happy with the service and will keep her in mind in the future.

What a GREAT experience with House of Brides in Torrance, CA! Maggie, the owner is a sweetheart to deal with. She was extremely helpful and accommodating with the changes I wanted to make on my dress. She made the dress exactly how I was envisioning it. I highly recommend Maggie for the quality of work and for the honesty and great service she provided….great prices too! Thank you Maggie!!!!

This is the first online review I have ever made but this company is the worst company I have ever had to deal with. I felt compelled to help others avoid all the problems I had to deal with. First I was the best man in my brothers wedding and had no choice but to use this company. The tux I rented was $140 w/o shoes and was the cheapest tux I have ever tried on. Not being able to get down there I went to Men's Warehouse to get my measurements and sent it to her. Once the tux came in 2 days before the wedding she told me if I didn't get down there I was not able to make alterations. I was forced to leave work early on Wed and drove 2 hours to finally arrive at her shop in Torrance. I was pressed for time and I was supposed to be in a rehearsal / dinner that evening in Anaheim. Unfortunately she was out to lunch and was late to come back by 40 mins. When she finally showed up I tried on the tux and all the measurements were wrong and off by 1" +. She then proceeded to make the alterations on the pants and jacket while I waited and they still didn't turn out right. I had no choice but to accept and leave so I could try to show up on time to the rehearsal. After a 1 1/2 hour drive in the worst traffic possible I missed the rehearsal and had to just show up to the dinner. From this point on the wedding went well and upon return of the tux, 3 weeks later I get a surprise charge of $100 in my account. Whats this? A late fee because I wasn't able to return it the next day. She called me and harassed me about the money because I blocked my acct. Maggie is so rude she also charge my other brother that came all the way down from Texas. He is in the Army and just got deployed to Jordon and was not able to fight this charge. Low and behold she somehow still was able to charge my card and threatened me several times with suing me if she did not get the money. I hope she is happy with the extra money and the horrible review she is going to get from me. If there was a way to give her negative stars I would. Hope all will read this and avoid the headaches the whole weeding party had to deal with!!!

I bought my dream wedding dre...

I bought my dream wedding dress in 2008 from House of Brides & tuxedo.



Maggie is the best really nice, sweet and honest she was so helpful in helping me pick out my bridesmaid dresses and making sure they arrived in plenty of time.



Recently I needed a dress for my sister sweet 16 which is in a couple weeks from now because of the great customer service experience I had at house of brides I decided to give Maggie a call to see if she has a dress a can buy at her shop.



I was helped by Maggie again & she was awesome. She really understood my style & what I was looking for. The first dress she pick and I tried on was the dress that I bought.



I will highly recommend House of Brides & Tuxedo if your looking for a wedding dress or evening dress that's the place to go, there prices are reasonable and excellent customer service.



Thank you Maggie!

Great Alterations :)

Maggie the owner is fantastic! I wanted a mermaid dress but fell in love with the top of an A line dress. She told me she could turn the A line dress into a mermaid dress. I was a little nervous not knowing if it would end up fitting the way I wanted, but Maggie made my dress perfect, exactly what I wanted. You would never guess my dress was an A line before. This place had the best prices out of all the dress shops I went to. It gets a little busy and you might have to wait a little to be helped in the store but the end results are amazing.
Thank you Maggie for making my dream dress!

I had a really good experience here with Maggie

I had a really good experience here with Maggie. I found the dress that I wanted for my wedding elsewhere in Los Angeles, and was given price quotes that were out of my range. Maggie was able to lower the price of the dress so that I could afford it. I really appreciated the time she spent with me.

House of Brides gives you great prices

House of Brides gives you great prices. I saw and found my wedding dress @ a different bridal shop and I called around to find the dress for a better price and Maggie gave me a real good deal. The owner is really honest about what looks good on you and will not lie about a dress to make a sale. The store does get pretty busy on Fridays and weekends, so you may have to wait a little bit, but she will definitely help you out.

I had a great experience with House of Brides

I had a great experience with House of Brides. The owner Maggie was very nice and helpful, and she offered the best price (and I did a lot of shopping around). I ordered my wedding dress and my bridesmaids dresses from the store. All dresses arrived on time and the alterations were great. I still go back to Maggie for alterations because it's done very professionally and I recommend my friends and family to her store for the best price and alterations.

Enjoyed my experience

I really enjoyed my experience with this bridal shop. I ordered ten dresses from them and I received them three weeks prior to the date she promised. She discounted so much because we needed ten.

Great price

I ordered my Jasmine Couture gown from House of Brides. The price she gave me was fantastic - Like MsBella said - it was below all the online quotes I had received plus there was no S&H! I saved about 40% off the highest quote I had received in other shops. The dress came in a couple of weeks earlier than she told me it would and I had no problems picking it up. Yes, it was very busy but she got my gown for me and put me in a ""room"" to try it on. I am not having my alterations done through her so I'm not sure of the service in that regard. But if you are looking for a great price on a gown this is the place to go!

I bought my wedding dress here

I bought my wedding dress here. The dress was originally out of the budget, but I had shopped around at various shops and this store gave me the best deal. I'm glad I got my dress here because Maggie the owner takes good care of you and also provides alterations. She used to make custom dresses so her alteration skills are pretty good. She also provided free steaming/pressing of my wedding dress a few days before my wedding so it looked ready to wear. This is a smaller mom and pop shop and they aren't the most organized, but they do carry a great line of designer wedding dresses at better prices than you would probably find elsewhere.
