I loved my visit to the Dresser. The shop is small but they have an amazing selection, something for every style.

They really help to work within your budget and they never tried to push more expensive dresses. I had a fantastic experience and would recommend this shop to anyone.

Wedding - June 2017 The Dresser was the fifth and final shop I visited in three days while searching for my wedding dress while my mom was in town. Before The Dresser, I had tried on about 30 dresses, some of which I liked, but none that I loved. Every dress up until then, there... Read More was at least one thing I wanted to change about the design or style. At The Dresser, I worked with Amanda and she was great at listening to what I was interested in trying on, as well as what I knew at that point that I did not like. The second dress Amanda pulled for me was the one that I said YES to. There was nothing I wanted to be different about it and it was the one that made my mom teary-eyed. After making the decision, it was easy working with The Dresser to schedule appointments for fittings and alterations. They are open later in the evenings on Tues and Thurs, which was perfect for my work schedule. Marianne is a talented and knowledgeable seamstress. The lace and scallop pattern on my dress was very intricate and she hemmed it beautifully. She also added boning in the bodice to help support me within the soft dress structure. After my wedding, I returned my dress to The Dresser for minimal repairs to the hem, as well as their cleaning and preservation service. Overall, the staff at The Dresser is professional, friendly, and will do their absolute best to help you find your dream wedding dress.

I'd like to start off by saying that I myself am not much of a "shopper". I'm the type of person that only goes to the mall for items that need to be replaced, or if I'm going to a big event. So I was a bit worried that my personality of, "go in, get what I need, get out... Read More quickly" may clash with finding the perfect wedding dress. That was not the case ! I was paired with Stephanie who was absolutely awesome. She's a total rock star. She really took the time to listen to the few details I felt I wanted for my dress, she found dresses within my budget, and asked if there was wiggle room incase. The parking was a little weird, so I would suggest getting there early to find parking. Inside was very clean, organized, and bright. They also can add straps to strapless dresses ;) which was a big plus for me since I did not want strapless. I found my dress that day, and it was in my budget ( actually a little under ). There are some great places to eat walking distance from there. If I could make any suggestion, it would be to go try on dresses before making an appointment here. If you have an idea of what you want, style, shape, color, material, etc. It makes the process so easy and flawless. Plus, when you're paired with a really great staff like The Dresser Bridal it makes it that much more fun.

The Dressor is so nice until you have any issue with the dress, then they have attitudes and do not help you take care of the problems!!!! We ordered a dress in November & it came in with the some of the beads in gold when they are all supposed to be silver, they re ordered it... Read More and here we are 7 months later and no dress!!!! You call to see what the issue is and you get the run around and a attitude. Do my buy from The Dressor, you need a someone who truly cares and will be helpful in these situations. A wedding dress is too important to have it screwed up and costs too much $$$ $3k. I have never yet had the owner call me or help with this situation. Cheryl Barbeau

Before my appointment at The Dresser, I had visited David's Bridal and Jaclyn's Bridal (both in Costa Mesa) and not only were they unfriendly and unhelpful, they didn't listen to what I said I was looking for. They seemed like they had better things to do than help me find my... Read More dress for my big day, and it made me feel unimportant and not valued as a customer. I was happy to take my business to The Dresser--my only wish is that I had gone there first so I didn't have the other unpleasant and embarrassing experiences. The moment we walked in to The Dresser, we were greeted and they gave me some paperwork asking my style, budget, etc. (David's Bridal and Jaclyn's Bridal acted surprised I was there even though I made an appointment). I then sat down with Tori, my consultant, and she asked me questions about what I was looking for, and asked if I had any photos of ideas I liked. She immediately knew of some dresses and gathered them for me while I browsed some others with my mom. She tied up/buttoned up/zipped up each dress after I put them on and I walked out to show my mom. All of the dresses she chose for me could have worked--they were all beautiful and what I was looking for. It was great to have options like that, especially as a plus-size woman. I narrowed it down to a dress I can't stop thinking about (and I bought it months ago!). Tori helped me choose a veil to match and we bought everything that day. I had an amazing experience here and I felt valued and not rushed at all. I highly recommend the shop--they have tons of gorgeous dresses and a whole room of plus-size dresses. The shop itself is adorable too!

I got my wedding dress, hair piece, and bridesmaids dresses from The Dresser. Everybody here is very nice and helpful. They recently stopped carrying bridesmaids dresses which I think was a good idea because for the price they ended up being pretty poor quality. The reason I'm... Read More not giving The Dresser 5 stars is because at the end of the day, I wasn't thrilled with my alterations that I had done there. I had many appointments (4-5) to get alterations done on my seemingly simple dress, mainly to fix some bunching/folding that was happening at the torso of my strapless, fitted lace gown and to shorten it. When I arrived for my last appointment, the week before my wedding, I was told that my alterations hadn't been completed because there was a computer glitch that erased my appointment. This being said, I was pretty upset and we were told that if we waited an hour they could finish the alterations. Even though my weekend was jam packed with wedding details to work on, I told them that I could come back the next day because I didn't want them to rush through my alterations, but they told me that an hour was plenty of time to do what I needed done. We waited, and when we returned and I tried on my dress again, the bunching/folding was still present in my torso. She made more alterations and I picked up my dress a week later just in time for my wedding. I asked to try it on one more time before I left even though it was packaged up so nicely. When I tried it on the bunching/folding appeared to have been fixed so I was relieved. I should have walked around in it though because then I would have realized that the fabric would ride up my hips and bunch at the waist just as it did my entire wedding night. It's been a few months and I've received my professional wedding pictures back, and the fabric is bunched at my waist in almost every single picture which is so disappointing because it really takes away from the beautiful nature of the lace. I'm pretty frustrated because I feel like this issue should have been addressed in my alterations appointment being that no bride just stands still for her whole wedding. I feel like some additional boning was necessary, especially considering there was only two pieces of boning in my whole strapless dress. Overall, I liked the selection of dresses and accessories at The Dresser, but I'm just pretty disappointed in the end product of my alterations, especially considering how much time and money was spent in alterations.

It wasn't the most fabulous experience- the sales... Read More associates don't allow you to walk around the salon and look at dresses yourself- they ask what you want and bring dresses to you. I may have found something I liked EVEN more! I didn't get a good feel for any dresses that they had because of that. The sales girls were very unenthused and honestly not very nice. Anyways- I was an easy sale because I knew what I wanted. Paid in full, and it arrived to The Dresser 5 months later. No bells and whistles, nothing- they don't allow you to bring champagne to the salon to celebrate with friends and family either. Just a very blah experience that did not get me very excited about buying the dress. It was a stunning dress and I was thrilled with my choice, but since it was Maggie Sottero, I could have purchased it anywhere and should have. Go elsewhere.
