I wish it were possible to give this gem of a bridal store more than 5 stars. It was not just the selection, quality and attentive service that wowed me. It was the integrity of the owner. I was having a difficult time making up my mind between a lace dress that was $925 and a simpler gown that was $499. I asked for her opinion and fully expected her to tell me the expensive one was the one I should choose. Much to my surprise she explained to me that my goal was NOT to buy a gorgeous gown, but to buy a gown that made me look gorgeous and flattered my figure. Mrs. Corwin explained to me that I should be the center of attraction and not the dress. I won't bore you with details but once I tried them both on again her explanation and opinion made perfect sense. There was no question that the less expensive gown gave me the figure I always wished I had. The decision was then an easy one to make. I can't imagine anyone else willingly giving up $500 just to make sure a bride looked her best. To top it off, after I had paid and left wth my dress, she called me with an idea she came up with that would add to the theme of my wedding. This was not something that made the store any money and the suggestion was brilliant. If you want to work with somone who really knows her stuff and cares a lot about you make sure you visit Corwin's. Do not assume the dresses on sale at David's Bridal are a bargain because they are not! I found a much better dress at this bridal store without the pressure of a "sale" that can "end any day."

Very helpful, and good people own this business. They were busy but we were never rushed or pushed. I had planned to order on line and just went in because I wanted to make sure I really liked the gown I picked out. Their prices were not full price so I ended up buying my amazing wedding gown and my bridesmaids got their dresses from them too. My girls paid $2 less than the lowest price they found on the computer. They also have an Ebay store so they must sell a lot. Freakin awesome.

Visiting from out of town and recently engaged decided to stop at Corwins to take a look at their wedding gowns. I didn't have an appointment but they just happened to be able to fit me in. Samantha was very attentive. When the dress I loved didn't suit me Samantha found something similar that was the dress I bought. Amazing quality and great prices. I would recommend this store to anyone looking for that special occasion dress.

I LOVED the attention, the price and most of all my gown. Don't bother going to Sacramento as I did. It is cheaper and better right here in town. The same gown I bought at Corwin's was either $100 or $150 more in Sacramento!

We had out of town groomsmen that were measured terribly wrong. We had originally tried to go to another establishment and they wanted to charge us an arm and a leg because the measurements were so wrong and it was so last minute and required so much alterations. Mr. Corwin was our hero. Not only did he charge their REGULAR LOW PRICE, he stayed at the store past midnight doiing our alterations. Service like that is impossible to find in a chaine store. God bless you guys.

I found the customer service at Corwin's to be warm and genuine. When I was debating between two dresses and asked the staff for an opinion, everyone unanimously picked the dress that was $350 less! It was not about the money but truly about what looked good on me. I was really pleasantly surprised and felt this alone warranted a positive review. However, my entire experience was positive. I should mention that what I paid for shortening my dress and having it bustled was 1/3 of the cost of what my friend's maid of honor paid for having the same thing done to the dress she bought at David's Bridal.

I am not sure how many people you need in your party to get a free suit or tuxedo to keep ( we had 8) but we thought that was a great perk too. Finally, their new location is great because I could park right in front and not worry about the dreaded downtown meter monster. Thank you, thank you, thank you girls!!!!

My daughter is getting married in September we had went to Davids bridal last month to find a wedding dress all though she did find a dress she really liked, the customer service was so bad and the young girl helping us was more interested in making her commsion rather then making sure my daughter was happy with her choice. I was very disappointing.
We desided to wait and look at other bridal stores. Today we went to Corwins Bridal, I was so impressed by the amazing comstomer service and the warm welcoming that the staff gave us.. My daughter had 3 young landies helping her, she was made to feel like she was the only bride to be in the world. She found the dress she just couldn't live with out!!! We then started on the bridesmaid dresses again the staff was so helpful. When you have a great caring staff it really tells you a lot about the owner/manegment. I would recommend Corwins Bridal to any one.... Thank you girls :)

After reading the other reviews, it seems as if my experience was not the norm, but I still felt compelled to share my experience. I have never reviewed a thing, but my experience prompted me to share. I had made an appointment to try on dresses and when I got there after trying on only 3 dresses, I asked if I could try on one of the dresses in the window. At first they said I would have to make another appointment to try it on. After some persuading by my sister they took it down and I bought it that day. I told them I would be picking it up the Friday before my wedding and when my mother in law went to get it they posted a "Closed early" sign on the door. After knocking for a while someone came out and let her pick up the dress. The day of my wedding when we opened it up the veil was missing even though the note on the bag said the veil was inside. When we went to try to get it the Saturday of the wedding during their normal business hours, they were also closed without notice. I ended up without the veil I ordered and paid for. I called after the fact to make a complaint and spoke with a very nice person who worked there who said the owner would call me right back and try to resolve the issue. I have not heard from her. Also they messed up on 2 of the 3 bridesmaids dresses we ordered and charged one of them more for the wrong dress. Since it took longer than they said for the dress to arrive, she ended up with the dress she didn't order and paying more money because she ran out of time to get what she wanted. If they would have properly resolved the issue I would not have been as upset but they haven't made an effort to do so. Save yourself the worry and go elsewhere. May 2010

On January 23, 2010 we went to Corwin's to have my very tall husband measured for a new Tux shirt, as he already owns a Tuxedo, and to buy him a new vest and tie. I also ordered a gown I had found on the Internet myself.
It is now May 24th. My gown arrived, finally, 6 weeks after it was supposed to come in. David from Corwin's lost my husband's measurements and never ordered his shirt or the red vest and red tie he was supposed to be getting. Am I unhappy? Yes. We do not live in Chico and we both work long hours, so getting to Chico in time to have new measurements done, etc is not easy. And who knows if it will get here in time for our daughter's wedding now? So, if you want your stuff to arrive late, or never even be ordered, then this is the store for you! I got the run around for 3 days before the clerk finally called me to tell me that David had never even ordered my husband's apparel. I am very unhappy, and we had ordered everything extra early to avoid stress!

After shopping other area bridal stores with my sister for her wedding dress we were left feeling discouraged. We walked into Corwin's, with no appointment, and downtrodden from previous gown shopping. Immediately we were warmly greeted and Korey, the manager, got to work pulling dresses. I had no idea that the quality of wedding dresses would vary so much. Corwin's prices were on point with the other stores but their quality was FAR superior. Every dress my sister tried on was beautiful, with a bustier built into each dress. But honestly, the most important aspect was the customer service. We had been high pressured at some stores and ignored at other stores even with appointments. They were so gracious and kind at Cowin's, and did not pressure her at all! Come to find out they had a huge bridal runway event at Sierra Nevada that and were in the midst of getting their "brides" ready for, we didn't even realize it! They didn't rush or pressure my sister, just helped her pick dresses that made her feel like her idea of "the perfect bride." I had actually forgotten they had also helped us seven years earlier with my brother's tuxedo for my wedding. Other area businesses had said they could not fit his 6'4" frame, Corwin's laughed and graciously helped into a perfect fit. Support a local gem, you will not be disappointed!!

Corwin's was my first stop for my wedding dress and I had no appointment and no idea what I was doing. The help was terrific and I found my dress in less than 2 hours. The owner really showed me all my possibilities and gave me the attention and guidance I needed. She and her employees are quick to catching on to what you like. They are also good at showing you how to "think outside the box" so that you can really see beyond what you might have been originally thinking. I can't express how great the help was there. I love my dress and it was very affordable. I am so glad I was able to give a LOCAL business my order. I would recommend Corwin's to anyone.

If you want to be treated like a wallet go to David's Bridal. If you want to be treated like a human being go to Corwin's Bridal & Tuxedo. Their dresses were gorgeous and a lot less that David's. I was told that basically all stores have similar styles and that makes sense. . We found the entire experience to be positive and highly recommend this store.

I went into Corwin's not really expecting to find what i was looking for. But i was wrong, I not only found something but i found my perfect prom dress. I wouldn't have found it without the honest opinion of the owner. She was very honest and polite throughout the whole time I was there.
I would definitely recommend corwin's to anyone looking for beautiful dress is and friendly service

My daughter and I traveled out of town to shop for her prom dress. We arrived at 5:28 P.M., not realizing their closing time was 5:30. The owner welcomed us, spent a lot of time with us, helped us choose possibilities, and critiqued each "look" as the dresses were tried. My daughter had both arms in casts from fingertips to over the elbows. We were never rushed, were given assistance when needed and treated with concern and interest. The owner's husband arrived, expecting to pick her up at closing time and he also was friendly, helpful and discussed alteration techniques with us. We never felt rushed and were not expected to hurry. The gown we chose was beautiful, priced reasonably and the overall experience was above all expectations. Customer service to the MAX!

I loved my experience at Corwins. Truly wonderful and helpful staff and the owner was gracious as we did not have an appointment when we arrived. She catered to me and I was never left unattended. I found the perfect dress there and know that I can recommend all brides shop there to receive the attention and one on one care that brides need to guide them through shopping for the dress of their dreams. I cannot say enough wonderful things about Corwins.

I'm way over the hill but still like good clothes. I have purchased dresses for two of my grand daughters' wedding and both times they were dresses that I did NOT think were appropriate for my age. Dora the sales lady insisted that at least I try it on (the first wedding) and it was perfect and made me feel more youthful and attractive--they even altered it. The second wedding I put myself in Dora's hands again and again ended up getting a dress I never would have chosen but I have to admit that I looked elegant. Cor wins appear to have lovely wedding gowns, but not my field and I know they have tuxedos as there was a wedding party group of men there when I was there once. All the staff are friendly and helpful. The last time I was downtown I dropped by and Dora was working that day and she insisted I take a sweater that looked so good on me. I just wore it to a function at the Sierra Nevada Big Room and got lots of compliments. I hate shopping but Dora at Corwins has taken the sting out of it and has excellant taste. I would recommend them to anyone because their prices are extremely reasonable, the staff is wonderful and really care. Also the variety of merchandise surprised me. Try it! Also we should all buy local more often.

I have never written a review before, but this store certainly deserves 5 star ratings. I have searched for months trying to find my dream wedding gown. Everyone had told me to go to sacramento and i did, and even to a couple of other high pressure stores here in chico, just gave up. I did not even know corwin's was downtown until I went to the bridal fair a couple of weeks ago. The staff was so helpful to me, and even made a special appointment for me after hours, as I work late. I tried on many gowns, in my size I might add. Some stores make you try on bigger ones so you will need alterations, but not corwins. The owner, Dora Corwin helped me and was so helpful with my decisions and really listened to what I wanted. I purchased an Allure gown which I love, and it fits perfect without needing any alterations except a bustle for my reception. She helped me with my veil, tiara and shoes. That store has everything!! even tuxedos. I am sending my bridesmaids there as well because the prices are the best. Thank-you Dora and please thank you wonderful staff. My mother and I are so happy we found you. thank you so much, definitely the BEST bridal store in town. KUDOS TO YOU!!! :>)

I really believe this is the best place on earth to start and end your wedding gown search. I think that I became gown-obsessed and probably tried on about 40 dresses. All I can tell is that you will know it is the right dress when you put it on.

I went in with a picture of a gown I found on-line and they had a few there that looked the same as my picture. I tried one for $50 less then the so called Internet discount "vendor." Don't buy your dress unless you know what it will look like on your body because I tried 2 that looked just like my picture at two different stores and one looked terrible on me and the other one was at best so-so. I tried on 2 of the wedding gowns I had selected before my consultant said she knew she had found my gown. I have to say that I honestly did not think that would be the dress. I am sure you know how this review ends. It was so perfect and it looked so good that we all had a cry-fest! My mom, my twin cry and even Nora, my saleslady cried! It was a wonderful experience and I'm not the type to write reviews, but Corwin's Bridal is well deserving.

They treated me really well, in spite of the fact that I had walked in after a 2 hour walk and looked a mess. I looked like I didn't have a dime to my name! Walked back in 2 weeks later with a couple of friends when I was ready to try on dresses. Was treated just as well and this time I was well dressed and serious about buying my wedding dress. It took a third trip before I decided, but I don't know if everyone is as demanding. The staff was always nice, helpful and really seemed to care. It was NEVER about my money, more like wanting me to look my best.

They treated me really well, in spite of the fact that I had walked in after a 2 hour walk and looked a mess. I looked like I didn't have a dime to my name! Walked back in 2 weeks later with a couple of friends when I was ready to try on dresses. Was treated just as well and this time I was well dressed and serious about buying my wedding dress. It took a third trip before I decided, but I don't know if everyone is as demanding. The staff was always nice, helpful and really seemed to care. It was NEVER about my money, more like wanting me to look my best.

This is the favorite store in town for my daughter and her friends. Now, I have to add that it is my favorite store too. The kids, (one now in college) called Corwin's their favorite store for that amazing, make-everyone-else-die of-envy-because-their-dress-is not -as-nice-as-mine store. The selection was amazing, prices fair and the staff, as incredible as it may seem, really honest in telling the girls if a style was not flattering to their built. Corwin's has now started carrying very cute dresses and tops that are fashionable, inexpensive and APPROPRIATE WITHOUT BEING FRUMPY for me, a woman in her 40s. I have also attended 2 weddings this year in which the brides wore the ost magnificent gowns I have ever seen, and I found out they were not bought out of town, but rather at Corwin's. I happen to know the owner in a social setting, so I mention this for the sake of being fair to readers of this review, but it would be unfair to me, if I did not get to write how pleased my family has been with their dresses and gowns.

Everyone in Chico knows they have the most beautiful wedding/bridal party dresses but I just found out they are also starting to carry more casual dresses/blouses....and not the same old thing you can purchase down the street. I purchased 2 casual summer dresses for my daughter and she wears them all the time I have yet to see any other young woman wearing the same dress.

You really need to check them out!!!!

I was referred to this store by a friend who had gotten her bridal gown and her bridesmaid dresses there. She told me the salespeople were really nice--she was right. I was never pushed, the ladies that work there are not on commission. They knew me by name when I walked in (I hope I was not a bad bride) and could not have been nicer. They had in their store 3 of the 4 dresses I had circled in a bridal magazine, so you know they keep up with the latest fashion. We even got all our tuxes there because, much to my surprise they had the best prices for those too. Downtown parking can be a bit of a hassle, but if you can save money, be treated like a queen and be be like me and write that Corwin's was by far your favorite vendor--then it's worth that extra nickel or walking half a block from the parking structure. Their alteration person is the best in town. She even fixed a botched up job that was done on a friend's dress that was purchased at another local establishment.

I am recommending this store to anyone that reads this. First time EVER, that I felt it was about me and not my money. I worked with the owner who actually told me not to be impulsive and to COME BACK the next day because she wanted me to be sure that the dress I wanted was really myt dream wedding gown. (I was alone and had decided on a dress). I went back that Saturday with my mom and grandmother and they were so nice to my grandma who is in a wheelchair. I ended up with another dress that I liked even more. It was $100 more than the original one I thought I wanted. I DIDN"T EVEN ASK and she lowered the price to match the one from earlier in the week. This kind of service, according to my grandma and mom is what they grew up with. For me it was a first and I liked it a lot. Ended up cancelling our tuxedos from Menswear House and switched to the Corwin store. They were cheaper!! Check your prices because sometimes you assume that the big stores are less and they are not.

I left Chico to attend U.C.L.A. I tried at least 20 dresses in Los Angeles before I found a dress by Allure was THE ONE!! I loved the dress but the price was steep and I decided to wait another month and continue looking for a gown that was less expensive.. I came to Chico to visit friends and family last summer, and stopped in at Corwins. It was one of the best decision I have ever made. The gown I saw in L.A. for $2,499 was ONLY $999.00 at Corwin's. The service and their willingness to help was truly amazing The people working there really know what they are doing. I ended up ordering my bridesmaid dresses from Corwin's Bridal too. Better still, because I had 5 they gave me one for FREE! Unlike other stores, the staff at Corwin's were never pushy. My bridesmaid dress arrived ahead of schedule and they were perfect.

Service was great at this bridal store. They made me feel very welcome and actually listened to my budget and what I wanted to wear for my wedding. They have a nice sitting area with all the new magazines so you can show pictures of what you like and they can match up styles for you. However, they do have a limited selection on hand and ordering dresses takes longer than most stores, but if you have the timeframe to wait for a dress this is a great place to work with.

PROS: knowledgeable staff
CONS: parking downtown can be difficult
