I love prevue! I have gotten three bridesmaids dresses from Prevue and have worked with Liza every time. She is amazing and fun and has made all of my experiences with Prevue great.
Recommendations: Always call before coming in to make an appt as they are so popular that they are always busy and it can be overwhelming to walk into.
Research styles and brands you like before you come in. The ladies know every brand and style and can be of even more help when they know what you do and do not like.
Order as far in advance as possible. This removes the stress from you and them about your dress not coming on time.
This happened with my mothers Mother of the Bride dress, which she ordered less than 90 days before my wedding. There ended up being an issue with the manufacturer and we were told two weeks before my wedding that it wouldn't be here on time. It was then (while trying to not have a meltdown) that I met Janice who owns Prevue. She personally walked me through every option with trying to find the right dress for my mom. She worked with me for two days non-stop until we finally had a new dress in hand. She was amazing and wonderful and I can't say enough about how she turned a potentially major disaster into a no worries situation. The dress we ended up with was even better than the one we had originally ordered.
Thank you Prevue for being so great!

I have been purchasing dresses for every occasion at Prevue since the early 1990's. Not only did I buy most of my high school dance/ prom gowns there, but all of my winning pageant gowns as well! I have bought dresses for 5 Marine Corps balls, numerous new year's eve dresses, Christmas dresses, and even my bridesmaid's dresses! They have an amazing selection of colors and sizes. I highly recommend this store. It is a one-stop-shop. I have never had more compliments than on the dresses I have found at Prevue. Fair prices...oh, and they have lots of Jovani gowns (one of my favorite designers)!! They are great at alterations, too which is really important!

The ladies who work there are incredibly rude (particularly the owner and one of the managers with short brown hair). During the duration of my visit they rolled their eyes when I asked if a dress came in another size and whispered to each other about how big of a pain I am. They will also tell you ANYTHING looks good on you just to sell it (this happened to me and I witnessed them doing this to other women). I've tried the place twice and it seems to only have gotten worse. It's also very disorganized and difficult to find anything. More than half the clothes are missing pieces and have snags. Skip it and go to a boutique that gives a flip about their customers.

I am currently in the middle of purchasing my bridal gown from the Prevue in La Mesa, and they are truly amazing! I had thought the deal I was getting from another bridal boutique was an amazing deal- till I called here. I was being price gouged over $200 just for the price of the dress! After going to Prevue, I got the price quote for the dress, with taxes and alterations- basically the dress ready-to-wear, and it was only $70 dollars more than the other place- which would still require over $100 of alterations!!!!!!

When I called I taled to Courtney, but I couldn't go in that time due to time and family contraints (grocery shopping!) So I suggested the very next day- to which she repiled she was off that day, but would come in for me. And she did!!!!! On her day off, instead of shuffling me off to another saleswoman, she came in! And when I got there, she was on the phone ordering a color swatch of my dress, and making sure there were no rumors of discontinuing my dress- as I won't be actually purchasing it till after the new year.

I am beyond pleased with Courtney and Prevue!!! This place is amazing, and Courtney made sure I felt like the only bride there, and I don't think she will change!!!!!

I purchased a dress for my friends daughter for her prom and the salesperson was so patient. She must have tried on 100 dresses. We got shoes and alterations done there and everything was perfect.

I came to Prevue wanting to buy a great dress for a wedding that hasn't even been planned yet. So basically really didnt even need a dress yet. But I tried a beautiful dress on and fell in love. I told my sales person that normally I don't feel comfortable in a strapless dress. She assured me that because of the design of the dress I would be ok in it. This dress has a great deal of beading on it, and in the past everything that I have ever bought that has had beading has also had a bag of extra beads to go with the dress in case some come off. My salesperson Liz seemed too busy with the other 2 customers to answer my questions regarding the beads. So when I came home to Poway and called the girl on the phone said I would have to bring the dress back to match the beads, even though I had the style no. from the web site. That too was odd, Liz said the dress is new but yet there it was on the web site. So I drove back the next week and the girls there said that there aren't any beads to go with it ! I also asked about the odd snaps sewn inside my dress. Come to find out that the dress comes with straps, so that my strapless dress CAN be worn with straps, but those weren't' t offered to me at time of purchase ! This dress is over 400.00 and they are still going to charge me at least 70.00 to hem it. I would think that by buying the dress there it wouldn't cost anything to hem it.

This store has given my more of a headache than anything else in my wedding planning process. The quoted us the wrong arrival day for bridesmaid dresses, off by 2 months. Didn't even place the order until two weeks after the last girl had been measured and paid, then tried to charge me an additional shipping fee so they might get here in time for the wedding. The lost one of my girls orders. The icing on the cake was being left on hold for 20 minutes today, after hanging up and calling back a second time after being forgotten. If I could I would take my business elsewhere, but I will never shop there again. Buyer BEWARE!

I bought my prom dress from PreVue and they had a nice selection of dresses compared to the department stores and other shops in the malls I looked at. The dresses are sorted on the rack by color and while they have many different styles and colors to choose from, it's not always easy to find one in the size you want. It's pretty dissapointing to find "the dress" only to realize they don't have your size. After much looking I managed to find a dress I really liked in my size. It was about $140 which I think was a bit pricey since it wasn't that fancy, however I really liked it and senior prom only happens once.

Prevue offers an "exclusive dress policy" which they proudly advertise in fliers and outside their store. They say they won't sell the same dress twice for the same event. While this can have it's upsides I would be pretty hurt if I spent a long time trying to find a dress I liked only to be told I couldn't buy it. In my experience though, I was never asked by the employee what school I went to or what event I was buying the gown for. It makes me question just how much they stand by their policy. Of course, the girl could have been new and simply forgot to ask me what school I belonged to.

This store has a policy to not sell the same prom dress to the same dance, which is nice. I got my bridal gown here, picked out from a catalog, and had no problems whatsoever.

It is definitely lacking that feeling of a small, personal boutique, but you can definitely find something decent for a prom. The dresses seem tailored to that hgh school age group more than anyone else. One plus is that they keep track of events and who buys what, so you won't have the same dress as anyone else.
But try the smaller boutiques that will give you better service and find you that perfect dress (and possibly cheaper).
