I was in Destiny Bridal last weekend and took my mom and 3 of my bridesmaids who all came out of town with me to look for a dress. I told Rosie (my sales lady) what style I was looking for and she brought me wonderful options. I fell in love with two dresses and had a difficult...

Both Maria and Rosie are the sweetest and so wonderful!!!

After feeling defeated, insecure, Down, and confused. I made an unplanned visit to Destiny's. At this point not knowing what I was looking for nor what I wanted. I met Caroline and surprisingly she did not lose her patience because I couldnt explain what I wanted. She was...

I ended up finding my dress I will marry my Fiancé in and am so excited. I am forever thankful for what she did for me that Day. Throughout this journey of Bridal shopping I had never felt like a Bride until I came to Destiny's. If your looking for your wedding dress I would definitely stop by Destiny's!!!

My journey with Destiny Bridal started in September 2014 with Anna. After countless hours of looking on pinterest at different wedding gowns, I knew 2 things; I wanted something all lace & I wanted something unique. I stumbled across this gorgeous essense of australia vintage... Read More lace gown online. I just had to find out where I could try it on locally. After searching on the essense of australia website for vendor locations, the information for Destiny Bridal appeared. It was an extremely convenient location to go to and I couldn't wait to try it on. During our initial visit, Anna made me feel so comfortable. I tried on that gown along with many others. I played with different veils and belts. The customary vision Anna had was awesome. She really let me play dress up. I was completely at ease throughout the whole trying on process. Sure enough, the gown I originally went into Destiny's for was THE ONE. I couldn't believe it. I really valued all of Anna's advice that she gave me. Since purchasing the dress, Destiny's has openly communicated with me and I have not ran into 1 hiccup. From finding my bridal gown with Anna...to ordering the bridesmaids dresses with the other ladies of the team...to the tuxes with Ed...to the alterations with Jane & Sissy... and lastly the in between moments & my customary veil with the owner, Maria. Everything has been seamless. Sissy & Jane is who I have worked with most recently these last 3 months for my alterations. They have been so sweet and accommodating. It's remarkable, the work that they can do. All of the staff members at Destiny's Bridal are truly a master at their craft. They are all a delight and I would recommend them to any future Mrs! I can't wait to wear my gown & custom veil at my wedding on November 20th, 2015. Yes, that is 3 days away!! :) Thank you Maria & The Team at Destiny's! I was mega blessed to have such a wonderful experience! Warmest Regards & Best Wishes, Diana

I feel cheated and lied to. I am Active Duty military and have been living in a different state than my fiance for the past 19 months. I shopped for a dress in my current state and found it for $882, but wanted to find it where the wedding will be so I don't have to worry... Read More about shipping/damages/etc. The owner told me it was the last one since it was discontinued, and could do $881.99. ...Ok. I asked if there was any way to bring the price down. She said she had to make some kind of profit and that she needed to make more room for newer dresses, and I completely understood. We settled on $850 plus tax, so $920. I busted my budget there so now I can't get the shoes, veil, and Honeymoon outfit I originally wanted, which isn't a huge deal but still. It's my wedding day. Realistically, everything's a big deal. I arranged for my mom to pick up the dress the next week. When she got home, she noticed there were greasy stains on the bag that seemed to have seeped to the inside. She immediately checked the dress and it seemed ok, but went back to get another bag. They stated they didn't have another one like it, and gave her a smaller, thinner bag. So now the dress is forced to be scrunched up in a less protective bag. When my mom did that exchange, she noticed in the window that for Veteran's Day ALL dresses in the store were $299. My heart immediately crashed to the floor. I called back the owner and just wanted to get background on the sale and why I couldn't have been informed of it. She stated that she "didn't even know it was going to happen," but that she had "100 discontinued dresses that [she] need[ed] to sell," so it was "just something that got put together." She apologized, saying, "Sorry there's nothing I can do. You already bought your dress. Ok? Alright. Bye." Riddle me this: if you're the owner of a store/budding franchise, how can you not know of an impending sale that will substantially cut your profits the week before it happens? In addition, if you're military friendly enough to have a sale like that, why can't you be military friendly any other time, especially with someone buying a discontinued dress the week before? I get it. It's a business and IF she knew they would have this sale (even though she claims she didn't), she would try to make a profit off of anything that she can. That's something I can understand. However, if that is the case, and she told me something different, that's where I have issues. One of our core values is Integrity, of which she seems to have none. It is just an extremely frustrating situation on top of the fact I found out today that the way my orders are lining up for the next few years, I may not even get to live with my future husband until 2018 because I'll be deploying extremely shortly after my wedding (like I get back from my honeymoon and I'll be gone), and then going to an overseas assignment where he can't follow me. I broke down in tears in the fitting room of a military clothing store. That's $600 that could've gone toward plane tickets so that I can see my fiance more than the 4 times a year that we already do before we no longer have that luxury. Buying the wedding dress of your dreams should be an experience, and not just a business transaction. Since I was not afforded the luxury to purchase it surrounded by my mom, sisters, grandmother and friends, and instead just had to deliver my credit card number over the phone, she could've at least tried.

We began working with a gentleman at Destiny Bridal who happened to be the owners son, he was fantastic. He was helping me with all the issues we were having with Jim's Formal Wear. Many of our groomsmen were having issues going to the locations outside of San Antonio, that...

I just picked up my dress from Destiny Bridal, and am absolutely thrilled. When I entered the boutique for the first time, I was given a very warm welcome by several friendly staff members, and after briefly describing the type of dress I was looking for, I was immediately given... Read More many options that perfectly matched what I had in mind. They understood me right away and had only my best interest at heart. They were incredibly accomodating when I detailed what I liked and disliked about each dress, until I found one that I fell in love with. Two fittings later, after several alterations to make it fit me perfectly, I feel as though this dress was made for me. The entire process was a pleasure, every member of staff I encountered went above-and-beyond in terms of kindness and warmth, the love they showed me made me feel truly cared for. I couldn't be happier with the dress I have chosen, the skill of the seamstresses, and the level of service that I received. If I could rate higher than five stars I would.

My daughter and I had the most wonderful experience at Destiny Bridal. My daughter didn’t know exactly what she wanted but had an idea of the shape of the dress she thought would look nice on her. Maria was our consultant (and is also the owner) and was absolutely fabulous.... Read More She listened carefully to all that my daughter told her and pulled dresses that she thought would both please her and flatter her figure. She found my daughter the PERFECT gown. It’s beautiful and flattering and looks stunning on her. Maria was so sincere and compassionate when she found out that my daughter would not have her father walking her down the aisle, as he passed away when she was a young child. It was a very emotional moment but Maria handled it with care and empathy. Destiny Bridal has a magnificent array of distinctive bridal gowns which was exactly what we were looking for. The care and service afforded us made this experience one we will remember forever. My daughter was treated like royalty and we were incredibly pleased with the personal service we received. We went there not knowing what to expect and left feeling like we were “friends” with Maria. Maria, thank you for all you did for us. Your boutique is fabulous and so are YOU!

I purchased my Maggie Sottero dress during one of Destiny Bridal's trunk shows. I had the privilege to work with Maria, and she was exactly what I was looking for!

The WORST Boutique Experience!

Reviewed on 2/11/2015 Jazmine A

As a Bride I was extremely excited about dress shopping as it is a monumental moment. I had searched in quite a few different boutiques to find the perfect dress. Originally I had thought was at Destiny Bridal where the employee Caroline helped us. It wasn't until I told her I... Read More wasn't going to put the down payment due to wanting to search for other dresses that there whole demeanor changed. It got worse once one of my bridesmaids who cam 8hrs from out of town to see me in the dress and to get her own dress. Caroline made comments about how "We are lucky she was not busy" when I asked her to try on the dress. She was very rude to us and only cared about the business which I have never had in any of my encounters with wedding vendors. It was absolutely awful. We later called to find out about the one dress we did put money on for a bridesmaid to see what we can do where they then told us to call the owner. Being a Supervisor for over 9 stores I have had my share of angry guests and one thing you do not do is interrupt the guests or assume you already knew the situation which she did. She kept mentioning that it is a business and they are not there to be seamstress. That she never gets complaints about Caroline and they are there to run a business. I was very put off by this as we were simply trying to explain our poor experience and what our options are in no way a rude demeanor being that I know what that is like. Finally after her being extremely defensive was when she gave us our options. DO NOT GO HERE! I WOULD GIVE THEM A 0 BUT I CANT.
