Everyone needs to visit Diane! After a few (very) disappointing experiences with boutiques in the area, my MOH found D'Angelo on Yelp and called to make an appointment. They scheduled us to come in that same afternoon, and immediately our experience was vastly different!... Read More Verda welcomed us in, showed us where the different sections are, then turned us loose to browse to our hearts' content! (unlike another major retail chain that wants you to look at pictures and won't let you try on more than 3...) Verda was great, not pushy, very friendly and helpful; with her help, I found a dress I loved. I needed a different color, so I placed an order...but there was a problem on the other end and the delivery got delayed. Diane finally told them to send her the dress, in pieces, and she'd help me with the color and put it together herself. She went above and beyond to help me! She found some gorgeous fabric in LA, then put my dress together with the new color and the dress was instantly transformed into MY dress. I loved my dress; it was gorgeous, flawless, and comfortable for the entire day! The level of quality and care shown instantly sets D’Angelo’s far above the rest. Diane treats each bride like an individual; she truly cares about making each experience unique. Every bride should go to D’Angelo’s first. If you have enough time before your wedding, you should look into having her design your bridesmaids’ dresses; her custom creations are gorgeous. Thank you for everything, Diane!

Back in February I came to Dangelo Couture in hopes of finding the perfect dress.. After already making one previous stop and already feeling overwhelmed, I didn't really know what to expect. I met with Verda who made me feel comfortable and helped in finding multiple dresses... Read More that fit the look i was going for (open low back with an A line flowy bottom) my problem is, I'm extremely petite and I swim in prototype dresses so even after pinning me in I was unable to see the full look. I stepped into one dress that I loved, walked out and my bridal party did not love it, needless to say i immediately felt discouraged and just wanted to leave. Verda could see the look of defeat in my eyes and immediately brought me back to my dressing room and gave me a Pep talk and suggested I meet with Diane for a custom dress. Of course when you hear custom all you see is $$. But Diane met with me saw my vision and made sure to stay within my budget. She even had a minimal amount of this gorgeous French lace (that was not within my budget) but it just so happened to be just enough for my size so she made it work for me! I felt comfortable through all of the different phases as she kept me informed and always booked my next appointment before I left. I just had my final fitting and I absolutely LOVE my dress I don't think I would have been able to find it in store and I can't thank Diane enough for making my dream come true, and being patient with me along the way as my weight kept fluctuating. Thank you thank you thank you! I honestly can't thank you enough!

Diane and her team are so amazing! The shop itself is so welcoming, and it's full of knowledgeable, passionate women. They had a great selection, I never felt rushed, and I ended up with a DREAM dress. I chose one that the shop owner, Diane, had made. It was so unique- and most...

I just said yes to my dream wedding dress today at D'Angelo Couture and I couldn't be happier with my choice. Diane (the shop owner and designer) was incredibly patient, informative and spent several hours with me going over dress options, alteration ideas and making sure that... Read More I was 100% happy. I never felt rushed and on my first visit I had the store to myself so I could browse, and I had Diane's undivided attention which was the shopping experience I really longed for. Diane has been in the bridal business for over 30 years and designs many of the dresses and accessories in the shop. While I was more set on one dress, when I came back the following day, I decided on one of her designs and it has everything I wanted in a dress. I couldn't be happier. Plus, Diane was very generous to work with my limited budget and I always felt that she wanted to make it all work out for me and to give me a delightful experience which she did. Definitely check out her shop if you are looking for a wide selection of dresses (she's got TONS of them - all beautiful and different styles) and great customer service, visit D'Angelo Couture. You can find your dream wedding, have an incredible shopping experience AND not break the bank. What more could a bride ask for?

I knew I was going to find my dress at D'Angelo's immediately after speaking to the owner/designer, Diane, to book an appointment. When I called she was very friendly and even gave me directions to other bridal salons (with no competitiveness at all) which was a refreshing after... Read More calling many bridal salons and having a consultant answer with obviously fake enthusiasm. I must admit when I entered the store I was slightly underwhelmed, it was not quite as "posh" as some of the other stores I had visited, but the consultant Reva proved me wrong! After about a 2 minute interview Reva said she knew exactly what I needed and pulled me 6 gowns within about 3 minutes. I had already tried on about 20 gowns elsewhere and had yet to be "wowed" but the first dress I tried on D'angelos brought my mother, sister and I to tears, and so did the second, and the third, and the fourth. Reva IMMEDIATELY understood what I was looking for and was so accommodating. Any positive or negative traits I mentioned concerning a dress were noted, and taken into account with the next dress selection. I felt completely comfortable handing myself over to her. I FOUND MY DRESS! And, it it perfect, it checks off every box on the list and I am even having a few pieces customized to make it uniquely mine. Reva assured me that Diane would be able to work within my budget to get me my dream dress and she delivered. To end the day, Reva even let my mother and sister each try on a dress so we could get the iconic friends picture from "The one with all the Wedding Dresses". I would 10/10 recommend this Bridal salon to any bride-to-be!

If I could rate this place with 10 stars I would. I was referred over to Diane and her team for alterations on my wedding dress. To be honest, I was really nervous at first because my dress has a lot of layers, is very intricate, and has a lot of beading. I wanted to make sure... Read More my dress was in good hands. I was immediately put at ease once I met Diane. She taught me so much about my dress (who the designer was, what materials it was made out of, etc). I could tell she was an expert and she handled the dress with such care. Although Diane initially helped me at my first fitting, it was Laila who worked on my dress and she is just as wonderful. I could tell she cared for my dress as much as Diane did and as much as me. When I went into my second fitting, I fell in love with my dress even more. The alterations she initially made, made such a difference! But, she wasn’t done yet! She continued to pin and analyzed every inch of the dress to ensure that it would be perfect. She explained the process along the way, making sure I completely understood what was being done to my dress. She would stop frequently and ask if I had any questions and wanted to make sure I was completely happy with how it was looking so far. Once she was done pinning, I turned to face the mirror and was in total aww... I couldn’t believe my dress could look any better and it did. It was so clear how well she knew wedding dresses and how to work with them. When I went to my final appointment and put the finished product on, I was so so so happy. Every inch of the dress fit perfectly (not a single budge, wrinkle, or anything). It fit as if it were made just for my body. I can’t wait to wear it for my big day. If you’re looking for people who will take care of you and your wedding dress, then you’ve come to the right place. They are passionate about what they do and it shows in their work. I could not be more satisfied.

I will start this by saying I am not one to write a review - I felt the need to write this review so that other brides could be warned, and know what they are walking into when they go into D'Angelo Couture - take my review seriously, I didn't take reviews on her seriously and... Read More I am full of regret. Save yourself the trouble and go ANYWHERE ELSE. This review could be very long, but the gist of it is: I ordered a custom dress from Diane. The top of one with a different back, and the skirt of another. She then made the wrong top, the skirt was not like the sample and had to be redesigned, made the correct top in a little over a week (when she had over a month to do it), it was done sloppy and was incomplete, the skirt was then sewn on to the bodice on the incorrect place, and instead of admitting that it was sewn to where my hips are instead of my waist (not flattering), asked me if I gained weight (there were two days between my appointments). There was also a blood stain on my dress after alterations. Overall, I spent $1400 on a poorly made dress, then had to bring it to Denver to get it fixed, at an additional cost of $775, not to mention the cost of my flights to San Diego for alterations that could "only be done by her" since it was a custom dress. Diane had agreed to pay for alterations that I had done in Denver, but then only ended up reimbursing me $275 because she did not agree with the new seamstress in Denver. DO NOT GIVE THIS WOMAN ANY MORE BUSINESS. She is arrogant, rude, disrespectful, is not the amazing seamstress and designer she claims to be, and does not take responsibility for her mistakes. Do not let this woman fool you! There are so many other bridal salons, choose any of those!! She made my dress, which should be one of the best parts of wedding planning, a nightmare, and way more expensive than I planned on.
