Marina Morrison was a stop I made out of town from Ohio to look for one gown in particular, and I ended up falling in love with the perfect dress and the amazing service at the salon that I ordered my dress from them even from Ohio! Intissar worked with me to coordinate the whole process, and it was great! They were all so kind and accomodating that I only wish I had an excuse to go back dress shopping ;)
I absolutely loved my experience at Marina Morrison. Intissar helped me find the perfect dress and I couldn't have been happier with the follow-up fitting appointments. I traveled in from out of town for each of my appointments, and it was well worth the trip - especially if there is a particular designer that you are looking for.
We really enjoyed our experience at Marina Morrison. The service was top notch. The price was high, but their selections were superb.
Marina Morrison has some amazing wedding dresses to try on, and is also a very nice space! It is located on top of Gumps in San Francisco, which is always fun to peruse around.
The dresses are definitely pricey, but you get an amazing experience and they have an awesome selection of designers. I originally went thinking I wanted a Claire Pettibone dress, but ended up leaving with a completely different dress than I had originally envisioned for myself and couldn't have been more excited or happy about it!
They worked well with me to make sure my dress fit perfectly the day of. They also custom made my veil and it was gorgeous.
Sabine (hope I'm spelling that right!) was amazing and made the whole experience so fun! They were very attentive to every detail during the fitting and pick up was very easy. I would definitely recommend.
The sales associates are very helpful in terms of helping you find a dress that matches your style and body type. Their price ranges are med-high, but good selections in both categories. On top of that, the space is absolutely beautiful. Great natural light to give you an authentic feel for the look. Also, every time I went there I was the only one in the store, which made me feel extraordinarily special. Other bridal salons I went to I felt like I was just another bride herded in and out. At Marina Morrison, I felt like the only bride that mattered in the whole world.
As a high-end salon, they have an excellent selection of the best of the best.
Their consultants are wonderful.
My consultant, Savinie, put up with me when I had a breakdown in the dressing room about how tough it was for me to pick the dress.
She helped me enjoy the process and choose a stunning dress.
The rest of the staff are great as well, and the seamstress is a magician. My dress came in basically a perfect fit, but I wanted to change some little things and she was a gem.
All I have to say is if you go to the right place, the right dress will be there waiting for you as this was the case . . . I walked into Marina Morrison, I picked 6 dresses to try on, I fell in love with all of them BUT I knew the dress I picked was in in about 30 min's flat.
They are professionals and what they have to offer is only the best.
I started out really loving the place. The people are warm and friendly and the salesgirl I worked with was so sweet. But all the warm and fuzzies started to dissipate as time went on. Over the past year, I must have gone into the salon about 12 times for fittings and "try-ons". 12 times!?! That is not normal.
First off, the dress I ordered was gorgeous. I loved it. I bought it at a trunk show so maybe this was why I had the problem? In any case, when the dress I ordered arrived at the store, they had me come in to "see" it. So I did. Tried it on. Looked like they wanted to confirm that yes, there was an extra foot and a half of length on the dress. Apparently the designer made the mistake? Well, that's what I was told. So they measured and pinned and told me they'd send it back and it would be corrected.
After the dress was back in the salon from the designer, they had me come back and try on the dress to make sure it was corrected. It was but, upon closer inspection I noticed that the top of the dress was not fitting the same flattering way it had when I tried on the sample. The cups on the dress were way too small and extremely unflattering. When I brought this up, they told me that I had tried on a sample size 8 and they ordered me a 6. Why in the world would they do that? Everyone knows that if it fits, you order the same size and take it in. I had photos of me in the sample to prove what I thought it was going to look like. I wouldn't have purchased the dress if it looked the way it did now. So after more discussion and more fittings, they decided to redo the entire bust of the dress. THIS WAS HAPPENING TWO MONTHS BEFORE MY WEDDING!!!! AND THEY CHARGED ME FOR THE ALTERATIONS, EVEN THOUGH THEY WERE AT FAULT BY ORDERING THE WRONG SIZE.
I was so panicked and upset, I went to Bridal Galleria and explained the situation and they helped me find my dream dress. At Bridal Galleria, I had ZERO PROBLEMS from start to finish. I only had a whopping 2 fittings at Bridal Galleria....imagine that.
Anyway, I would definitely not recommend Marina Morrison. Maybe they really are as fabulous as they seem and I was the unlucky one who had a terrible tear-filled experience but I would not wish it upon anyone. I paid well over $5000 for a dress that I will not wear, including over $700 in alterations (which I should not have had to pay for) and it was the biggest mistake of the entire wedding planning process.
Oh, and let's not forget that they almost were going to charge me for the fabric they had to order in order to redo the bodice (which they were redo-ing because they ordered the wrong dress size), but they were so generous in not charging me for it.
I spent thousands of dollars, hours and hours of time away from work, and I am left with a dress that I can't even bear to look at. I dreaded every appointment after the bodice issue was discovered. It was the worst experience of the entire wedding process and I am so sad about it.
I loved the personal attention at Marina Morrison. They treated me like a queen and the women who work there are not pushy or overly friendly, they are respectful and helpful. The space is also beautiful, it was so fun to try on the dresses and walk around the store. Also, I liked that they had a smaller selection of dresses so that I did not feel overwhelmed.;This is the type of salon where you need an appointment and you can expect to pay around 3-5,000 for your dress. The accessories are beautiful, but expensive!
Absolutely the best personal service, especially considering that I was from out of state.........I checked out a large number of salons prior to choosing Marina Morrison, and it is definitely #1!
Willing to negotiate.
I loved their caring approach and patience.
They were willing to go ahead with my ideas, organized, VERY easy to work with and not at all snobby. (I wanted a blue dress, they found one for me)
