Bridal Salon

I am at the beginning stage to find my wedding dress (a long way to go). I have searched some style I like by Mori Lee, Maggie Sottero, Vera Wang...etc. Can any recommend a good bridal shop in N. CA (Bay Area) that I go to? Thanks bunch. :)

    Any particular part of the Bay Area?A lot of girls here have had a good experience at Trudy's in Campbell. I also went to Bridal Galleria in SF and Unique Bride in Burlingame - both of which were ok too. I went to Neiman Marcus in SF as well - it was actually pleasant. I had a nice salesgirl named Jessie. I've heard very good things about Clarissa's in Walnut Creek as well. I went to Kate's Kouture in Berkeley to check out bridesmaid dresses, but I think they have wedding dresses as well.

    I found my dress at Forget Me Knots Bridal on Union. I loved the shop because it was small and you recieve personal attention from the owners during your appointment. Only thing is there is only a small selection of dresses (all under $1,000). My friends have also had success at Trudy's and Unique Bridal.

    Bridal Bliss in San Ramon is smaller but it's great if you want one on one attention because it's family owned and they do appointments only so you aren't competing for help with other brides.

    I would recommend Bay Area Bridal in Cupertino.  They have an amazing selection and Sandy the owner is great.  I had Niki and Jean as consultants and Jessica helped with looking up styles and they were all great. I also visited J'aime in Pleasanton and Dana's in Livermore and had good experience at both.  Oh, and Elegant Lace in San Jose has TONS of dresses.  I know all of the places I mentioned had Maggie's (except Dana's, they may but I didn't try any there).  I tried on Mori Lees at Elegant Lace.  Vera Wang is out of my price range so I don't know about that. ;)  Gabrielles in Campbell probably has Vera Wang and Gabrielle was great when I was there for a sample sale. HTH!

    Galleria Bridal in Santa Rosa has a ton of Maggie Sottero dresses and the staff is very helpful and friendly. I ordered my dress from them and all 3 of my bridesmaids and so far the bridesmaids dresses came in looking great and fitting them perfectly.

    Thanks everybody for your reply.  I am going to my first wedding gown shopping on 9/13.  I am very excited and nervous.One of my bridesmaid actually setup an appt with Jinza Couture Bridal.  So....I'll see how it goes.
