How do I convey into words the absolute best experience any bride could ask for when it comes to looking for a wedding dress? You know how people say Monique Lhuillier is the goddess of wedding gowns? Well, theyre absolutely correct.

I am shocked at how I was treated by the owner! Yes, not an employee, the OWNER! Not once did she ask what I was looking for in a wedding dress, all she cared about was my price point. Snobby, stuck up, rude and inconsiderate....you would

I purchased my wedding gown in from Divine Designs in 2008. I had a fabulous experience in this beautiful shop. They had an extensive collection of high end gowns for me to select from and Monica's experience, style, and expertise helped

So disappointing. And the worst part of everything is that I ended up getting my gown from them because I couldn't find it anywhere else!

I can't understand some of the reviews...my experience was truly first class. Following the advice on the website, I called and made an appointment with Monica (It turns out this wonderful lady is the owner), and scheduled an appointment.

I had been looking forward to going to Divine Designs ever since their window displays caught my eye. I knew they were a high end boutique, and I saved over three months to be able to afford a $2-3k dress. But when I called, no one

Monica took great care of me from the minute I walked in the door. She will ask your price range because she doesn't carry cheap dresses and doesn't want to waste your time trying on things you cant afford, but dont take it personal-I appreciated her honesty- and noticed some people who gave her reviews on here didn't but she is not snooty at all! She is very honest and doesn't kiss your ass or try to talk you into something you can't afford or pressure you to buy from her.

This is THE ONLY store in Portland that carries designer dresses, and once you try one on- you can't go back to the cheap ones! I highly recommed this store for brides who want the best dresses and can afford to spend a little more!

The setting is private so you dont have tons of random people around as you try on dresses and there is plenty of parking for NW Portland!

I ended up trying on 15 to 20 dresses. I went to Boston to try on dresses with my bridesmaids. I went to Seattle to try on dresses with my mom. And nothing I found was as beautiful or perfect as the dress I found at Divine Design. Everyone I worked with was incredibly helpful. I'm not tiny and they worked with my size and my budget to help me find a dress I felt gorgeous in. When I put it on at my final fitting I couldn't stop smiling. Now that the wedding is over I'm trying to figure out other opportunities to wear my beautiful perfect dress :) My only piece of advice is make sure you make an appointment and if you have anything you are concerned about give the staff a heads up on the phone.

I have never been treated so poorly in an establishment, especially one that is supposed to make you feel like a special bride. I will NEVER buy anything from Divine Designs or let any of my many yet-to-be-married friends waste their time on this hoity-toity, snooty, upturned nose of a place.

PS I wouldn't have even given it a one, but a I had to rate it something.

We made an appointment, had no trouble finding parking, they had a great selection with good suggestions, would even piece 2 dresses together. The designers where very helpful on dress styles for my body type. They also were very patient and attentive to me. In the end, they suggested I needed to go out and look at other shops and then come back once I had a more definite idea, which worked really well for me. Would recommend them for higher end designer dresses. And plan ahead, it takes time to get them and then altered.

Pros: location, energy

The owner, Monica, was so warm and helpful. I made an appointment and came with my grandmother and sister/bridesmaid. I was very upfront about my budget, and she said she generally does not have gowns in my price range, but really worked to find something with me - she didn't try to sell me on a more expensive dress and be rude about it like other places I went to. We looked at everything from bridesmaid dresses that could come in bridal colors to discontinued gowns. She was so great, much better than anyone from other shops. I've had some awful experiences, but coming here was so relaxing and I didn't feel judged like at other places. I came back a few days later just to get an opinion from my mom and maid-of-honor, and once again Monica was wonderful and patient. AND she gave me some great advice on venues that I hadn't thought of. I couldn't be happier, and I can't wait until my wedding day so I can wear that gorgeous dress for my fiance as we get married!

Thank you so much Monica, I think if I hadn't found your shop I don't know if I would have found "the dress."

My friend and I were kept waiting forever, then she was told that they didn't have anything for her budget (which was not small!) and more or less kicked us out. Get over yourselves people... this is not a Paris atelier...

I have never been treated so rudely. And we had quite a bit of money to spend. We were shown 6 dresses and then the women helping us (from my understanding the owner) decided she just didn't have any more dresses to show us, because we didn't like her "ethereal" idea of what the bride should look like. She didn't let us look at any of the dresses in her stock just picked ones she determined she wanted to show us.

I found an amazing Monique Lhuilliher dress here. This is not the place if you are on a budget, expect to spend some cash. Most dresses that I tried on were in the 2500 - 5000 range. And keep an open mind about what they bring out for you. It is amazing how a dress on a hanger can change dramatically once you put it on. Also make sure to make an appointment. Nahid was very helpful and also honest. She made my dress shopping experience very enjoyable.

The owner is very pushy and does not listen. She does not allow you to look at all the dresses but rather she brings dresses one by one from a room she does not allow to go in. After showing you 3 or 4 dresses she becomes very pushy and she puts pressure on you to pick one.

I bought my wedding dress here after several people I know had (and they all had great experiences). Overall, the items offered are expensive, but they are exquisite--it's worth it. I had a little lower budget than some of my friends, and the dresses Nahid brought out for me were absolutely gorgeous. I ended up needing some rather drastic alterations to my gown, and Nahid worked tirelessly to make my dress look absolutely perfect--she is a PHENOMENAL seamstress and also just has a great eye for what will look good on brides. I highly recommend DD.

Devine Design, is a place I would not recommend. My sister and I went to this place and we felt as though it was pretentious, the sales person has an edge and they had a limited selection. The person that was there on the day we were browsing should not be working with the public, she is not skilled in customer service, . I think that an individual emanating negative energy should not be assisting you with one the most important day of your life ...your wedding day. The lady should just should just hire some one that understand the service industry and reflects civility . My sister was visiting my from LA she is a runway model and she does commercials, so her opinion counts . She felt that Devine Design is lacking in many areas . Perhaps that day we were there was just the luck of the draw. There are some great wedding boutiques in Portland that cater to to customer and provide excellent service so do your homework before wasting time, energy and money.

If you are looking for a bridal gown in the Portland area, please avoid this store. The woman was rude to me, didn't listen at all to what I was looking for in a wedding dress, and after trying on about 3 dresses told me that they didn't have anything for me in their store. WOW.

Extremely impressive! After attending the Portland Bridal Show this last weekend, my mom, bridesmaids and I stopped at Divine Designs for bridesmaid dresses. We were greeted with smiles and were treated wonderfully. We were given champagne while my friends tried on dresses to model. In the end, we found the perfect Amsale dresses for girls. Monica and her assistant were so nice and helpful, very interested in the details of my wedding. It was the perfect ending to a lovely day and I feel so much more centered and focused on my wedding now. Monica, the owner, even gave me personal recommendations on photographers and videographers. They are a spendier shop than David's Bridal or others such as that, but the quality of the dresses is equal to my own wedding dress. I would recommend this shop to anyone of my friends.

The owner of this shop is very snobby, and treated me like I had no money. She only stocks gowns no bigger than a size 12 which can be about a 6-8 in street sizes. When dresses didn't fit me she expected me to buy a $3,000 dollar dress when I could only hold it up to me.

I wish I would not have wasted my time there, I would never set foot in there again.

My experience with Divine Designs could not have been better. My mom and I felt welcomed in the store from the moment we walked in. I worked directly with the owner and found her to be wonderful! She was very knowledgable about the dresses and was able to help me find the perfect dress for me. She is open and honest (almost blunt) about whether or not dresses look right on you and makes suggestions for other styles that might look better (i.e. she was never trying to sell me just any dress). Her store is by far the classiest and most upscale store in all of Portland. And if you're looking for a designer dress - this is the place to go. I found that the competition in Portland doesn't compare.

I wasn't looking for a dress, I was looking for "The Dress." If this is you then consider Devine Designs. I bought a couture dress from Paris that was made to order, then fitted for me when I arrived. The designer agreed to make a few alterations to the design for me (add sleeves because it was a winter wedding) which is highly unusual. Not for the financially feint of heart. I found the staff helpful and polite. My dress would take 9 months due to back order and shipping, which they told me up front. There are more dresses than what you see up front, so ask for help.

My daughter and I flew in to Portland to check out gowns available at Divine Designs. The owner was rude, haughty and completely uncaring about our desires. There was nothing positive about their customer service at all. We left and went to Nordstrom where we were treated with respect. I have shopped at beautiful shops throughout the world and travel to Portland often to shop but have never been treated the way I was treated at Diving Designs. If you value your bridal experience and want it to be a joyful one, steer clear of this shop! We pay extra for what we want but the experience can be ruined by rudeness.

I only briefly visited Divine Designs as part of my search for a dress, but the atmosphere and condescending manner of the pretentious staff were readily enough to turn me promptly away! The saleswoman who helped me came off as completely unctuous and snooty. It felt to me like the management believes that if they portray a sense of superiority it will enhance the expensive and prestigious brands that the store carries; whereas in reality this just makes the staff seem stuck up. I walked in with the money and interest to purchase a dress, but the social posturing that the staff were doing made it quickly very clear that I was going to have to play a lot of games just to get into a potential dress. I would recommend to avoid!

I placed an order with Divine 7 months ago for a Amsale gown that I fell in love with. They refused to give me a ship date eventhough I'm leaving the country on the 8th for a month. I told them that I need this dress to come in before the 1/8 which is more than enough time for shipment. They promised me that my dress would be here the last week in December or before I leave in January. I called them on the 3rd and they told me that they need to check to see when it will be shipped. I told them that if the dress does not come in before 1/8, that dress will remain in their store for a month. The response I got from them is "that's okay as long as it's paid for". I would have NEVER bought my dress through Divine Designs.

I was helped by the owner of the store and was shocked to realize that she has no interest in retaining her customer base. She made fun of my budget to one of the sales associates after she left the fitting room - did she not think I could hear her?
My friends and I are all at the age where we're starting to get engaged and married - I have told my story to all of them and not one will step foot into that store. Several girlfriends who have recently gotten married have had the same experience from Divine Designs.
As it turned out, my budget was considerably higher than I let on and because of the owner's attitude I spent my money at Tres Fabu and received excellent service.

Brides beware - I would avoid this store like the plague. Weddings are stressful enough without the added stress and bad customer service in dealing with the magic of shopping for your dress. Not to mention the catty, harsh owner who is all about the money and treats her customers with disdain and disregard. I am surprised that they are still in business. I wish I would have listened to the word on the street - because the more I talk to people the more I hear to avoid this store at all costs.

Don't be persuaded by the glitz and glam of 23rd Ave. They will not live up to their promises. When they are the ones that screw up your order, you will end up being the one to pay. Even if a dress is altered completely wrong (the seamstress confirmed it) they will tell you it looks great. They will also talk about you behind your back, in front of other customers (I heard it). They will say and do anything to get your money. Spend your money where the staff is more professional and courteous.

there is nothing like an organized bride. she makes all the right choices at the right time. but the choice of divine designs was not the right choice. don't believe their opinions, they only tell you what will make a sale. not to mention keep appointments-they may not show up. don't rearrange your schedule to theirs-it is a wasted day. take your money somewhere they deserve it. don't let them be the reason for any stress. they don't deserve that much satisfaction.

Pros: ok selection, clean floors, large mirrors

Cons: customer service, status of inventory, fairhaired seamstress

Nice selection, but these people care more about taking your money than anything else. Make sure you know exactly what you want because they don't accept returns on anything, even items they regularly stock. And don't bother trying to argue with the owner - she won't accept responsibility for her or her staff's mistakes (like not showing up for an appointment).

Unlike the many other bridal salons I visited, the staff at Divine Designs made me feel special. The staff was extremely gracious and knowledgeable and the selection of gowns was amazing. If you are looking for something different (and you think most gowns in bridal magazines are hideous!) then I suggest you make an appointment. I think it is worth spending a little extra money for the personal attention and the selection of so many exquisite gowns.

Pros: Personal Attention, Gown Selection, Knowledgeable Staff

I had a wonderful experience at Divine Designs. I found Monica and her staff to be very helpful, approachable and fun. (I also loved that Monice really knew what she was doing and could give me great advice on what kind of dress would look best on me and what kind of dress was appropriate for the place and time of my wedding) And, I absolutely loved the dress and veil that I purchased. Great job!

Pros: Gorgeous dresses!, Great people., Fun atmosphere

If you want to find a coture gown in Portland you must visit Divine Designs. They carry fabulous dresses by all the top designers. I was highly impressed with their gown selection, although all the really great gowns were hidden in the back room, so you can't through them yourself. That was disappointing. My salesperson was Nadig and she was very professional and nice. I did not find the sales staff to be snotty at all. However, I did find the dresses to be quite expensive as they are all high end designers, expect to pay quite a bit if you purchase your dress here!

I wrote the "150 words is not enough." When I rated divine designs I gave them the LOWEST score possible - a 3. They made mistake after mistake. They did not come through until I sent them a fax settting a two-day deadline for them to meet in their 3rd attempt to perform on the contract for the wedding dress. They deserve the lowest score possible. Now that a lower number is available .... they earned a 1.
