Loved, loved, love this boutique. Karen helped us at my first visit and completed all my alterations. Loved Karen --- my dress fit perfectly.
went to 3 other stores, they didn't even compare.Bliss Bride is 5 star. made it a very pleasant and total stress free experience,which it should be.
I cannot say enough good things about Bliss Bride! I went to Bliss for my very first dress appointment and was helped by Jennifer, one of the owners. Working with her was incredible… she closed down the store for an hour and introduced me to the designers and different dress styles. What could have been a very overwhelming experience (and I’ve seen this with friends in other shops) was so enjoyable, educational and fun! Jennifer made me feel relaxed and really took time to listen to what I was looking for and also use her experience to suggest certain styles and lines. I went to two other bridal boutiques and the experience was nowhere near the same… the professionalism and expertise of the women at Bliss is priceless. In addition to falling in love with a Claire Pettibone gown from Bliss which I wore at my wedding this September, I fell in love with their high quality dress experience -- highly recommend this boutique!
Bliss Bride has a wonderful selection of dresses and they really take care of you!
Ownership makes a difference. When I had my appointment with Anne, one of the owners, she made me feel relaxed and made the dress shopping experience, one to remember.
She was patient, funny, and well informed about styles, designers and prices. I tried on several dresses and she helped me figure out the right dress that flattered my figure and fit my budget.
The space is very relaxing and inviting and when we were there, we felt like we were her singular focus.
I would recommend Bliss Bride to all of my friends!
The ladies of Bliss Bride provided the best dress shopping experience that made my special day even that more special. Loved the shop, the fabulous service and the gorgeous dress I selected. Anne and Jen are the best with what they do. You cannot go wrong with Bliss Bride!
What a special and fun experience I had with my future daughter-in-law picking out her wedding dress at Bliss Bride. The boutique has an intimate and charming atmosphere. We had an appointment so the shop was closed to others giving us a very personal one-on-one experience that was very special. Jennifer (co-owner) was so delightful and professional. Her expertise was so helpful in narrowing down the choices for the future bride as there were so many beautiful and exquisite wedding gowns. My daughter-in-law found the perfect dress. The service and attention to detail was excellent. Thank you Bliss Bride for an amazing, fun and wonderful wedding dress experience. I only wish I had had a place like Bliss Bride when my own daughter got married!!!!!!
I purchased a beautiful Jenny Packham gown from Bliss Bride in San Diego California for my wedding in June 2014. The ladies at Bliss were extremely sweet and helped the dress shopping experience to be an enjoyable and memorable. Jenny was more than accommodating to my needs as a bride and assisted me with payment options and email/phone purchase/shipping/ and paperwork since I do not live in San Diego. The shop is in a very nice location and provided a relaxed and intimate setting for my mother and I during shopping. I have nothing but wonderful things to say about Bliss Bride and I couldn't be happier with my experience or dress. I would recommend this wedding boutique to anyone!!!
I highly recommend Bliss Bride for a professional, personalized, and delightful experience shopping for a wedding dress. Anne, Jennifer, and Karen were extremely responsive and were great listeners throughout the process, from when I first called to when I picked up my dress for my wedding. Anne went out of her way to let me try on some trunk show dresses even after the trunk show was over. Anne, Jennifer, and Karen also patiently answered all of my mom's and my questions.
Bliss Bride is a lovely and peaceful store. Anne, Jennifer, and Karen provide personalized attention, and trying on dresses was a lot of fun. I also appreciated their eye for silhouettes that flattered my body type and their great ideas for details and accessories.
As an aside, I highly recommend keeping an open mind about dresses and dress designers. I went into Bliss Bride certain that I would fall in love with a Jenny Packham dress, but I ended up loving several Claire Pettibone dresses and purchased "Madeleine" by Claire Pettibone. Dresses looked very different to me when I tried them on than when I saw them on hangers or online. I would have never guessed that I would have bought the dress that I did, but I love it. I am so glad that I got to buy it a wonderful local boutique like Bliss Bride.
Once I picked out my dress, I had the pleasure of working with Karen on my wedding dress alterations. Karen is an extremely talented seamstress and an absolute delight to work with. Karen is a perfectionist, and my dress fit me perfectly on my wedding day. I truly appreciated how carefully Karen altered my dress, and she created a beautiful, easy bustle. Karen has an impeccable sense of style, and my perfectly tailored wedding dress made me feel very special on my wedding day.
The women who run this little boutique in Del Mar, CA are nothing but professional, sincere and sweet. I never felt any pressure to decide on a dress or to hurry. They work only with private appointments, so I had their undivided attention, with plenty of time to try of accessories and just play dress up!! My sister and my mom came with me, and we all felt comfortable stating different opinions, eating chocolate and trying on all the dresses we came to see. They have a seamstress who did my alterations, and everything came back on time with no surprises. I honestly can't imagine a better experience buying a wedding gown.
I was specifically looking for a Jenny Packham gown, The Willow. I found that Bliss Bride carried this line. When I called to make an appointment, my call was quickly returned. An appointment was scheduled and I couldn't wait to get my dress. The day of shopping, Anne was so sweet. My bridesmaids, mother and I had the shop entirely to ourselves. It's cute and not overwhelming and has beautiful dresses. Anne asked questions as to the vision of the wedding, budget and what I was looking for. I tried on the coveted gown first and loved it, but still tried on a few to be sure. Anne was so patient letting me get in and out of the same gown several times as I made up my mind! The entire day was great! Follow-up with Anne has also been great, keeping me updated on when the dress will ship, etc. This shop provides an awesome, personal, one-on-one experience.
I would recommend this bridal boutique to any fashionable bride to be! In particular, Jennifer is outstanding, friendly and has an incredible eye for fashion. You cannot go wrong with buying a gown from this boutique.
I went to Bliss Bride years ago as a bridesmaid for one of my best friends and now that I am getting married, it was one of the first places on my list to go. The overall experience here is so pleasant and comfortable. They have a good selection and both Anne and Jennifer are so easy and fun to work with. They were flexible with me needing to come in several times before making a final decision and did not make me feel rushed at all. I would definitely recommend Bliss Bride to anyone I know shopping for a dress!
My experience at Bliss has been nothing short of a miracle. I'm not your typical bride but still wanted to treated with kindness and respect. Not only did Anne & Jennifer answer my nervous picky questions quickly and clearly but they made me and my 'girls' feel welcome special and cared for every step of the way! I tried on endless gowns and never felt rushed or pressured. I purchased my gown from them without hesitation and will be having my alterations done there as well even though it means extra driving! I'm so grateful that my memories of my wedding will always include these amazing ladies and their perfect boutique.
I can't say enough about Bliss Bride. It was the perfect experience for me. When I visited other bridal shops I kept comparing it to Bliss Bride and it didn't compare!
They were so helpful and made the experience exactly what I dreamed it would be!
I couldn't have had a better experience with Bliss Bride. I found the wedding dress I loved in San Francisco but it was too expensive. I searched for a deal online and found the dress at Bliss Bride, discounted for a trunk show. I live in Tahoe and had to do everything via email with Bliss Bride. Anne and Jennifer made the entire experience so incredibly easy. I asked so many questions and they happily answered all of them. We did the transaction over the phone and they sent they overnighted the dress to me when it was ready. My dress was perfect and so was the experience with Bliss Bride. Thank you so much ladies for all your help and patience!
If I could give Jennifer at Bliss Bride a negative star I would. Her attitude was completely rude and unprofessional. We showed up a few minutes early, and rather than asking us politely to wait, she asked us to leave. When we did return at the scheduled time, her attitude did not change at all. She rushed me through looking at the selection and was even faster at getting me out of the gowns when I was trying them on. My friend had to ask her to get me a veil. We also wanted to see sashes on a gown and it seemed to annoy her that she had to do her job and assist me. I couldn't get out of the store fast enough. I would never wish that a bride and her family/friends be treated with such disrespect. Especially on such a special occasion. Everyone felt uncomfortable.
I was also not impressed with the small variety of gowns they offer.
I bought my gown elsewhere but had the alterations done by Karen at Bliss Bride. She did an amazing job and was always very calm and collected along the way. I wouldn't have trusted anyone else as much as her to work on my gown.
Jennifer made my dress shopping as easy as it could've been. I only had exactly 6 months until my wedding, and have never ever been dress shopping, but I'm so glad this was the first (and only) boutique I went to. Jennifer closed down the whole boutique just for me and my family, and that made the experience absolutely amazing. She also worked with my budget, but managed to find my perfect dress! I wouldn't have gone to any other place but here!
Ana was amazing at finding my wedding gown. Very helpful and great selection !!!
