While shopping for my wedding dress, I visited a total of four bridal salons and I probably tried on a total of thirty dresses. Haute Bride was the last place I went to and by the time I made my appointment there, I already had a clear idea of what fabric, silhouette and color I was looking for. Plus, I had my eye on a particular Tara Keely dress that as it turned out, Haute Bride was one of just a handful of bridal salons in the Bay Area that carried it.
But before I go on about my experience,I must say that they did such a wonderful job with the decor of the space. It's small but they made great use of the space and the fact that it's small makes it feel more private. It truly is beautiful.
It all just added to my excitement. My consultant, Mimi, helped me pick out six exquisite dresses which all somehow fit amazingly on me--even the Tara Keely one I had my eye on. However, when you find the one, you just know it's The One and mine ended up being a GORGEOUS Agusta Jones number. I didn't cry or scream--I just felt that it was my dress. From there on out, the staff helped with the process of ordering the dress and making sure it would come on time. They were so great every time I went in for a fitting. It was definitely a pleasant experience and I'm so very thankful that they helped make it that way.

This was our second stop and our last. We loved the size of the shop, small and quaint, but enough room for the bride and her entourage to feel comfortable. The staff was very helpful, and never made the bride feel uncomfortable, and there was no pressure to buy at all. They also carry a lot of accessories from belts to jewelry so you can pretty much get everything you need right there. They also use a local seamstress for alterations so you don't need to worry about either. Would highly recommend as a go to place on your list of bridal shops.

After going back there for multiple appts, this place now feels like a second home. I love the staff, the options, the pricing and the overall experience. The one thing to be aware of is their alterations can be more expensive than originally quoted.

My experience with Haute Bride has been so wonderful, I'm looking for any excuse to keep coming back (renewal of vows, anyone?)!
I originally found out about HB through Yelp and decided to make an appointment. My bridal consultant, Veronica, was able to book an appointment for me for the following day! Veronica was the perfect sales consultant. She was awesome, patient, knew what I was looking for, and recommended a sexy, unique Matthew Christopher gown that I ended up falling in love with! HB is the only store in the city that carries his gorgeous dresses, so I'm really glad I went to the store. Veronica did not pressure me to buy that day, which I really appreciated, as I did not want to make the decision so soon. I returned a couple days later, after checking out a Priscilla of Boston sample sale, certain that I would not find anything like the Matthew Christopher dress! The dress was amazing, as was my experience with Veronica! I should say that I also liked a few other dresses they carry by designers Mikaella and Modern Trousseau.
I also wanted a custom couture necklace made and had an amazing experience working with Lindsie, the store owner and jewelry designer of Haute Bride. The necklace turned out beautifully and I cannot wait to wear it again and again! It is stunning. In fact, all of the bridal jewelry looks amazing and the store sells beautiful cocktail jewelry as well.
I've been back to the store several times, to look at veils, buy my bridal earrings etc. and I've always felt welcomed! Even when there was a small issue, Lindsie more than made up for it and showed what a true professional and wonderful person she is. She went above and beyond and provided exceptional service. I highly recommend Haute Bride to any bride, bridesmaid or woman who is looking for unique, sparkly jewels!
