Down the Aisle was wonderful to work with. My wedding dress was beautiful and I got an amazing price. The girls in my wedding party loved their dresses and they fit perfectly!

Lovely Shop posted 9/24/2013

The attendant at this shop was very attentive. She was very friendly and very helpful. They had a great selection of the designers I was looking for and a good selection of accessories too. I did not find " the one" here though.

Great experience! posted 9/23/2013

Sharon and her team at Down the Aisle were absolutely wonderful! I first had the pleasure of working with them when shopping with my sister for her wedding dress. The experience was so great that when it came my turn to get married, 2 yrs. later, I knew exactly where to go to purchase my dress...Down the Aisle. Down the Aisle carries a large variety of dresses and accessories for not only the bride, but the entire bridal party. The level of service and attention from Sharon and her team was incomparable. They were extremely knowledgeable and made me, an insecure Bride, feel very comfortable. My dress, veil, and sash were absolutely perfect! Very accommodating and excellent service all around! I even received personal emails both before and following my special day wishing me and my husband all the best!

True Professionals posted 9/18/2013

I was in heaven when I walked in Down The Aisle. They had so many beautiful dresses. Sharon the owner took her time in assisting me and hearing what I said I wanted in a gown and reading the expressions from my body language. She knew what I liked!! We found the perfect gown, veil, shoes and jewelry to accessorize with. Never have I felt so beautiful!! Thank you for making my experience extra special xoxo

So Thankful!!!! posted 9/7/2013

Hi, I am a local to San Luis Obispo and I am currently planning what feels like my "shotgun" wedding of 3 months because of my family moving overseas. I heard about Down the Aisle from a friend, and am SO THANKFUL I went in to check it out! I found the PERFECT dress!!! I put it on and got tears in my eyes because I loved it so much! I never would have picked it out myself, but it was the owner of the boutique who picked it out for me after listening to my description of what I was looking for... and it was JUST right!!!

I was on a really tight budget of only $300 and the dress started at $895 but she said she could give it to me for $400..... I asked if she would let me beg for her to bring it down a little more to fit my budget and she smiled and said that she wasn't opposed to begging every once in a while :) She was so kind and I am so thankful that she brought the dress down to a price that I could afford so that I could have a dress that was exactly perfect for me and so beautiful!!!!

I walked in and out of there with the perfect dress within an hour's time!!! She made it simple and easy and didn't make me feel bad for being on a budget, but instead worked with me to leave me feeling blessed and lucky!!! She also told me she could help recommend a tailor who could fix it up for me professionally and affordably!

All around a wonderful experience and I would recommend the shop to everyone! I had so much fun trying on dresses here and walked away with THE ONE!!!!

Thank you Down the Aisle!!!!!!!

Bridal attire posted 5/28/2013

I bought my wedding dress, veil, and tiara here! Everyone was very friendly and of great help! They had a good variety of everything I was looking for. They had dresses within all prices ranges. The only down fall I had with my experience is my veil came two months later than they said it would originally, which wasn't a big deal since I ordered everything far in advance

This was the first store I went to for dress shopping and I had the best experience here!! They made it fun, there was absolutely no pressure to buy, and they were very knowledgable about the lines they carried. Unfortunately I did not end up finding my dress there BUT! I was so happy with my experience there that we ended up going there for the tux rentals for my groom and the groomsmen! :0) That was an excellent experience too! You can't go wrong with this place!

Horrible Experience posted 9/28/2012

If I could give this boutique zero stars I would. The women who helped me was nice enough, once she realized you were going to definitely buy a dress but the customer service after I already put down the money was unbelievably HORRIBLE!! I ordered my dress nearly a year prior to my wedding and at about 6 months before the wedding I started contacting the store to see if my dress had come in because I was promised it would be in, and it wasnt. This continued up until 2 months before my wedding, she never gave me my dress and I had to ask for my money back. Once she did give me my money back in check form, when I took it to the bank the check bounced. I ended up getting the money back and rush ordering the exact same dress online at weddingshoppe.com. It definitely took a lot of fun out of the dress shopping and altering experience.

It is a nice enough dress shop with some beautiful dresses in the $800-2500.00 range. The young sales girl is very nice and helpful. I do think the owner only goes out of her way when making a sale or when the client is right in front of her. My dress was 2 months late coming in (this is the designers fault, not the stores) but she never called me to let me know that. I had to call her three different times to find out where my dress was and she told me "oh the designer called and is running late" I think she should make phone calls like this to brides waiting for their dress, especially since we need to book fittings or they get to busy.

Shopping for my dress here was a wonderful experience. I felt very comfortable with Andrea. My budget was $2,000 and they had several great dresses in that range. The only down side, my dress barely came in in time for me to make my fittings (I was traveling cross country). I believe that was more the dress makers fault, but I felt like I was really having to stay on top of it to ensure my dress would be in on time.

This is the most beautiful and elegant bridal salon I have ever seen. I had an amazing experience. Andrea has so much knowledge and is so friendly. I wasnt sure what I was looking for exactly and Andrea helped me feel comforable and find the perfect dress. My wedding day is going to be the happiest day of my life thanks to her. I would recommend this salon to any bride wanting an upscale experience and a beautiful wedding gown. Thank you Down the Aisle!

Very nice and helpful posted 3/6/2012

I did not end up getting my dress at this store, but wanted to review it because I found that they were very nice, and had a good selection. I actually liked their selection more than any other store I visited, but was looking for something very specific, which they didn't happen to have, so I purchased my dress elsewhere. Regardless, I definitely recommend making an appointment and checking it out. It's a really nice store.

Love Down the Aisle! posted 10/25/2011 (modified 10/25/2011)

The ladies at Down the Aisle are lovely! I walked in very nervous and hesitant- and walked out knowing I would have the perfect dress. They are very knowledgeable about the lines they carry and they really care about making you feel comfortable with the process. I send all of my friends there!

Best Dress Shop Around! posted 10/23/2011

I went to all the dress shops I could get to & this was by far the best! I loved the feel of the shop, you have plenty of room to move around & breath (which you don't get every where!) I found my dress here & absolutely loved it! They do not do in-house alterations, but they will give great recommendations on where to go.

I had to get my dress off the rack and they had a great selection and the customer service was awsome. They are even sending my dress off to be cleaned and boxed for a great price.
