After going to 6 other stores and almost taking a break from the exhausting process, my mom and I went here on a whim on a Sunday afternoon. They were friendly and accommodating on the last minute visit and hallelujah the last dress (7th store) I found the dress. It was perfect and exactly what I wanted: slim A with lace and beading. Since Karoza is a Maggie Sottero preferred seller, they were able to order me the gown as it was getting ready to be discontinued. And funny it was one of the first dresses I liked on the MS website but didn't find at any other store in LA, the valley, pasadena, etc. The staff is really knowledgeable about gowns and are interested in finding the one that fits YOU! They don't try to oversell a particular dress, and really work with your budget. Their selection is huge and sometimes even less expensive than other retailers for the same dress. All the sample gowns are in bags to help preserve their wear and tear. Although I can understand some reviews on yelp about a language barrier, this is family run operation and they really try to make you happy and treat each customer fairly. I also got my alterations done here. Not much, shortened the length, added the bustle, and changed the neckline to a sweetheart. They also even remembered me with only a few visits for alterations. Although I probably did spend more here on alterations than if I went elsewhere, with a bridal gown, I didn't want to chance anything and they do this all the time. They also have a dress preservation service which I will need to do soon. Ultimately, I highly recommend a visit to Karoza. It's a diamond in the rough store in Glendale and with their vast selection you can't go wrong.

By the time I found Karoza, I had been to nearly every bridal shop from Burbank to Anaheim and back. All of the stores had beautiful dresses, but not a single one was close to what I was looking for, so I decided to try the bridal store down the street from me. The shop is in a small shopping complex in Glendale, so I didn't have high hopes, but I was running out of options, so I bravely walked inside. Once inside, I could see that this shop was almost double the size of all of the bridal stores I had been in! They had the dresses divided by style, so it was easy to run through and find the dresses I liked. They also had the largest and most well appointed dressing rooms out of any of the bridal stores I had been to, which was great, my mother or sister could finally fit in the room with me! They assigned me a personal assistant who was bubbly, fun and very helpful. When I brought the dresses I wanted to try on into the dressing room, they immediately brought in a petticoat. At first I tried to tell them I didn't need it, I hadn't been offered one anywhere else, but then they explained that it would make the dress lighter and easier to walk in, Wow! Really? Why had no one else told me this? And they were right! I had picked out some big heavy princess dresses and instantly the dress felt lighter and very easy to walk in. I bought my dress on my very first trip to Karoza, I just knew I had found my perfect dress and perfect dress shop. They ordered the dress, kept me updated on it's arrival, planned my fittings for me, and even held the dress in their storage area so I wouldn't have to risk my groom seeing it or the cats getting to it. They altered this huge dress to fit me like a glove, rented me the petticoat, and steamed and cleaned the dress for me. They have a ton of jewelry and bridesmaid and mother of the bride dresses too. It's a family business and it felt good to be a part of their family for this important part of my wedding. I love Karoza and would highly recommend them to every lady looking for a fantastic wedding dress at a reasonable price!
