Trudy's was absolutely great during the whole wedding dress process! This was the first place I visited and I found what would later be me dress. I went to several other stores within the area, but ended up returning to Trudy's for my dress. Not only did they have the best service, but they also were the only one to have that particular dress. I even came back for bridesmaid dresses and they put up with us there for hours and hours when we had a hard time choosing a dress.
I Love Trudy's. I had the absolute best experience every single time I went there from trying on gowns to ordering my gown to my viewing appointment and accessories shopping. I also purchased my wedding party dresses there and again received the best service as well as a 10% discount. I could not be happier with my experience and Love Love Love my dress. I highly recommend Trudy's.
I absolutely loved my experience shopping at Trudys! The consultant I worked with was friendly, knowledgeable, and not too pushy. She listened to what I was looking for and found the most amazing first dress to put me in; we all knew right away it was "the one." Still, she was patient while I tried on a few more just to be sure, and was not pushy when I let her know I had a second appointment to try on dresses at another place. No other shops could compare to the great service I received at Trudys though, and I returned the next week to buy the dress of my dreams. I know many women who have found their dresses at Trudys, and they will all tell you the same thing about the wonderful experience they had and their success at finding a gorgeous dress in their price range!
I was determined to find a wedding gown under $1K. I allowed myself $1K but really wanted to spend less than that. I have a hard time spending that kind of money for a dress. At other shops I expressed this to them and they kept on showing me dressed $1,200 +. When I went to Trudy's the consultant really listened to me and nothing was over $1K; most were well under! I found a great gown that looked high end...I was very happy! Everyone said it was such a great dress with lots of great details. I wanted "simple with a twist" and that is was I got!
I had a truly amazing shopping experience at Trudy's. The people who work there all care about getting you into the right dress for you. They made finding my dream dress a total breeze!
After going to a lot of wedding dress shops I went to Trudy's to look for a wedding dress. My appointment was with Didi and she did an amazing job helping me figure out the best dress options based on the pictures I brought in. At a few other wedding dress shops I felt that the staff just helped me into dresses, but didn't make any suggestions based on my body, style or vision. Didi brought in the Maggie Sottero Ascher dress, which was one of the first dresses I'd liked online, even though it wasn't in the photos I brought to the store. I immediately loved the dress but needed some time to think it over. I made an appointment to see Didi again a few weeks later. I wanted to make sure it was the right dress and actually picked out the same dress while browsing around the store. When my dress came in Didi helped me pick out perfect accessories too!
I had a great experience at Trudys. I felt like everyone was so sweet and helpful. I was really happy with the whole process and was so grateful they helped me find the dress of my dreams. I had gone to one other bridal shop prior to Trudy's and was definitely feeling overwhelmed by the options. They definitely made the process so easy by asking what styles I like, what my budget was, and making recommendations based on my body type.
I did my first bridal fitting at Trudy's Brides in Campbell. I was really impressed with their customer service--our attendant really listened to me and brought out dresses that matched my aesthetics and taste. Unfortunately, they were a little out of my price range, and lacked the variety of styles that I wanted, but I could see how a lot of brides would love their stuff. A wonderful store--really nice people.
My bridesmaids god their dresses from Trudys. They have a great selection and the girls that helped us were really nice.
I wish they had more sizes of the samples to try on. None of my bridesmaids were the size of any of the sample dresses they had to try on.
My hugest problem with Trudys was how the handled the shipping. We ordered these dresses in December for a May wedding. Someone called me about a week after the initial order to tell me that they wouldn't arrive until about a week before the wedding date. Unless I paid extra for rush shipping which still might only get them there 2 or 3 weeks earlier.
It just seemed a little shady and it just felt like another way to get an extra $150 out of someone. The girl on the phone tried to tell me that a week would be enough time for alterations but I find that hard to believe. And then they never called to say when the dresses shipped, and they sent me a postcard to tell me the flower girls dress had arrived, which I thought was really bizarre.
I had chosen Trudys because it was a more central location for all my bridesmaids. If I could go back and do it again I would rather have given more business to the shop I got my wedding dress from in Stockton.
I LOVED my dress! I wish I had a reason to wear it again! The service was exceptional. I provided them info on what type of dress I was looking for (lace, with an open back). She picked something I wasn't sure I would like but I truly loved it.
Both of my really good friends found there dress at Trudy's so I wanted to save this store for last in my hunt that was dress shopping. I went to five different stores and the selection at Trudy's far surpassed any other store.
Leading up to the appointment I worked with Diana and she was more then helpful. I emailed her a gazillion times with lists of dresses i was interested in (I mean seriously like a 15 bullet point list) and she responded with the prices and availability of all of them.
When it came time for my appointment I ended up buying the very first dress I ever tried on, but the kicker was it was $900 off! They were having their sample sale and let me tell you their samples are in top notch condidtion. I went to a sample sale at another bridal salon and I was appaled at teh quality. The dress was beyond dirty, the feathers were frayed and scattered (Pronovias Benicarlo) and I couldn't imagine purchasing it even after professional cleaning.
When I completed my purchase I was so overwhelemd and excited I had no idea I had to take it home that day! I was not mentally prepared, nor was my storage space and Trudy calmly reassured me they would hold it for 30 days while I figured it out. I was very greatful for that.
If I had to give one criticism it was that Diana didn't pull any dresses on her own. I would have liked to have had one suggested dress, even if I ended up hating it. On the flip side of that I think she knew I was a woman on a mission and with my long list of dresses perhaps there was no time for a meaningless pull.
All in all I would recommend them to any future bride!
I had an awesome experience at Trudy's! My advice - make an appointment for a weekday (weekends are too busy), ask for Didi (because she's awesome), and try on dresses that you didn't think you would like. Didi has an extreme attention to detail - she would tuck my bra straps in and clamp down the back side of the dress rather than right down the middle of the back so we could see the detail of the back. She is amazing! I ended up trying on several dresses on Friday, going to a few more places on Saturday (Haute Bride in LG and Bo Lee Bridal in Sunnyvale), and going back to Trudys to buy the first dress I tried on. I loved my experience there and would highly recommend it to anyone :)
Trudys Brides truly is the BEST place to get all of your formalwear whether you're the bride, bridesmaid, mother of the bride or even a guest! They are a one stop shop and the best thing about Trudys is they genuinely care about their customers.
The consultants and Trudy personally took time to talk to me about myself, my guy, my wedding and what I was looking for in a dress. They really listened and pulled dresses they thought were the best for me and even when they knew I had found my dress they let me keep trying on dresses until I was certain.
I found the most beautiful gown and had the best experience, I couldn't be happier with Trudys Brides they are the BEST!!!!
i absolutely loved my dress! after horrible service elsewhere, Trudys saved the day! they have amazing dresses!
I had found my wedding dress at another store (in another state!) and came here to buy it since this close to my house. The service they provided while in the store was decent, very nice and welcoming, but my problem is the size they recommended. It was a size too big and they did not let me know that you can order Maggie Sottero dresses with a shorter length (my friend informed me she did this). I had a big alterations bill and was not happy to have to pay it knowing I could have saved had they known what they were doing.
I bought my dress in 2006 and got married Sept 1, 2013 and my dress was still perfect. My father bought the dress for me and passed away in 2010- wore this dress in remeberance of him
I really had a wonderful experience finding a dress. I had no idea what I wanted and Michelle was amazing at reading my face to find just what I wanted.
Our first visit to Trudy's was just...fine. Although I was living out of state at the time, our consultant assured us that we should buy the dress in town, since the wedding was here, so I didn't have to travel with it, and it was one less thing to worry about. When the dress came in, I came to pick it up, and they were far less willing to accommodate our screwy time schedules. They actually told me that we definitely should have gotten the dress in my home state and traveled with it. The only reason I bumped up the rating to four stars is Martha. She did my alterations, and was fantastic. She does beautiful work, and is so fun and sassy, she makes the fittings go by so smoothly. I wound up going with a different pair of shoes (much shorter) in between my second and third fittings, and she re-pinned the hem of my whole dress in minutes, all the while telling me she was glad I found shoes I wouldn't fall down in. She's the best!
Thanks for helping me chose my wedding gown. So many complimented me how beautiful i look . thanks very much
Thanks for making me so beautiful with the wedding gown i got from you.
