My daughter from Las Vegas was in LA for a football game and decided to make an appointment because The Dresser had a trunk showing scheduled. I flew in from Kansas to join her. The staff was very accomadating and helpful. Customer service was outstanding and we had no feelings of being pressured or hurried. We had been to 8 bridal shops and tried on dresses each place. The Dresser was by far at the top of the list. Prices were very similar in Kansas, Missouri, Las Vegas and LA. Was a wonderful experience.

My sister (the bride) and I walked into The Dresser a couple weeks ago for the first time. We had a really great experience with our consultant, Caitlyn. She was sweet and made me, my mom and my sister very relaxed. My sister found a dress she loved but was too nervous to purchase it on her first appointment. She never felt pressure or rushed. I thought this was the norm when shopping for such a big purchase but I have to say that we have since visited a few other salons in OC and I have to say they do not compare! The staff and the dresser seem like they actually care about their brides and want them to have the best experience possible. We returned twice to the salon with other family and friends and every experience was the same. Even on a very busy Saturday, everyone had a great time and were very well taken care of. My sister even ended up saving money on her dress because a different place had it for sale for $200 more!!! Caitlyn took great care of us and we are recommending the Dresser to all our girlfriends.

Do not believe the negative reviews for The Dresser; this store had the best bridal service to offer by far. My very first bridal gown experience left me in tears after visiting the awful store DB, so I opted to try somewhere out of town and was so pleasantly surprised to find Alice, Diana and Nicole ( the representative for Essence Gowns). They gave me the experience that I had envisioned as a first time bride. Their customer service and joyful attitudes made this an experience I will always remember. I even got hugs from the girls after ordering my gown; they were so excited for me! And even better was to go across the street and have a complimentary glass of champagne at The Vine for ordering my gown at The Dresser. The store is beautiful and well organized, very clean and I could not ask for better customer service to enhance my bridal experience. For a gown shopping experience that will leave you with happy tears, I definitely recommend The Dresser!

My first experience trying on wedding dresses was terrible! So when I found The Dresser on-line I went with the notion that every Bridal Salon was their same. All out for the sale, pushy, rushed, and stalkerish. (yes, my first bridal consultant called me and emailed me consistently for two months after I met with her) Boy was I wrong on so many different levels. First of all its a darling Mom and Pop store in the heart of down town Fullerton. (I think thats wonderful) Its clean and very organized. They have the best team of consultants I have ever had the pleasure to work with. Ive been helped by all of them and I adore each and everyone. They are so patient and kind. I never felt like a number but more like a friend. Its one of the few places I would work for in a second. Anyways, I am very picky, being a wedding planner myself I knew exactly what I wanted. I have been there to try on dresses half a dozen times. I never felt like they were impatient or annoyed that I came in so many times to try on sooo many dresses. I found two that I liked and looked good on me but they just weren't what I was picturing. (BTW they have samples to fit any average girl) This past weekend I found the dress of my dreams at the Winnie Couture Trunk sale the Dresser hosted. I knew it the moment I saw it. The Dresser made finding my dress a great experience. I'm so excited to get my dress in June. I hope that every has this much fun finding her dress. At The Dresser YOU WILL!

I went to two dress shops with my mother in Northern California, I thought I found the dress, but wasn't willing to commit at the time. I went to The Dresser, because it's near my office. I have loved the window displays for YEARS. I looked them up online, and they carried the designer of the dress I liked. They had me try it on with others, and helped me figure out that I was sure I wanted the dress I originally picked. Every time I went to try on the dress or go to a fitting they were on time attentive, and very professional. They were not pushy or selling me. They talked me though each of the steps and very accommodating to my time constraints. Very knowledgeable. I wish they carried the designer of the bridesmaid dress I picked.

I love this boutique. Beautiful, great staff, and wonderful selection. Make an appointment, it is worth it, and as a bride we are worth the time. They are very busy and work one on one only. It is nice to have someone be able to answer all your questions and guide you the right way. I love them. I visited many bridal salons all over, and I must say I am impress on how special they made me feel. Overall, I give this boutique a 10 out of 10. Be respectful of their time and space because they will treat everyone like a princess.

I purchased my wedding gown and bridesmaid dresses here. I have a little boy and no time to waste. They are really nice and kept me up to date at all times about the status of my shipping dates. They are very good at returning phone calls and are always very thoughtful. They helped me feel calm and special during such a crazy time. I went back to visit after my wedding and to bring photos and saw their new location. All I have to say is WOW! So beautiful and with a lot of space.

My first experience with the Dresser was when I was looking for my own gown. I had fallen in love with one dress and unfortunately this shop didn't carry the line. Even though, I was "just in case there is a better dress" shopping, Dianna was very sweet and spent over an hour with me helping me through their extensive collection. After shopping for myself, I knew that this was the spot to get my bridesmaids dresses. I had six bridesmaids spread all over California and the staff of the Dresser contacted and coordinated ordering and payment with all six so that I didn't have to worry about it...but it doesn't end there. I went with the Melissa Sweet line of dresses and as beautiful as their dresses are, the company is as difficult to work with. Melissa Sweet missed the shipping date and Dianna and Mary Ann spent hours on the phone with the MS rep in New York tracking down my dresses. Fortunately, because of the Dresser staff's tenacity, my dresses were located and shipped overnight. When the dresses arrived 7 days before the wedding, one dress was made incorrectly (the top was a different color from the rest) and Mary Ann completely remade the top of the dress out of fabric hemmed from another dress. The dress ended up looking 500 times better than in the original fabric. When my bridesmaids arrived 2 days before the wedding, Mary Ann made it a point to see every single girl in their dress and made all the necessary adjustments that day. I can't begin to express my gratitude for them taking a potentially disastrous situation and acting immediately to save my bridesmaids dresses! Side note: This is a great business that is run by a small staff and not only do they sell the dresses they do all the alterations too, so respect their request for appointments and you will be treated like a princess!

I am so excited. After looking at dresses for months, I found the dress of my dreams today.
I traveled 90 minutes to reach "The Dresser" because it was recomended from a friend at work. After reading some I the reviews I was a bit shy about this dress shopping trip.
It was amazing!!
All three of the ladies who worked there were great. Each one took the time to make me feel special. I felt and looked like a princess.
Marriane, Dianna and Tawny were all sweethearts!

My experience at The Dresser was amazing. I felt like a princess in their new location. It is beautiful. I been shopping for awhile and when I went to The Dresser, I knew right away that I was going to purchase my gown from them. It is nice to know that I will be in good hands especially because Marianne, the owner have been in the business so long. She will personally be working on my gown as well as all the customer who purchase their gowns from her. Everything is so hands on in their boutique. Diana, my consultant is very professional and personal with my family and me. Service is something that cannot be overlooked, I could have purchased my gown else where for cheaper, but discount was not what I was shopping for, service and great reputation was want I wanted. I have many sisters, friends, coworkers, etc...that I would recommend The Dresser to.

After reading some of the reviews of The Dresser in Fullerton I had to weigh in. I've been a wedding planner in Orange County for eleven years and have taken countless brides there. I have always had excellent service, and I love taking brides here to find really beautiful dresses on a budget. The dresses are carefully edited and selected for great style, unlike other stores who carry everything a designer makes, regardless of style. Yes, you have to make an appointment. I don't know a credible bridal salon that doesn't require an appointment. Why would you want to shop at a store that is giving their attention to everyone that walks in? You want them to give you their undivided attention while you are trying to find the most important dress of your life. So make an appointment, and be prepared to listen carefully to the advice that you get. This is one of the few salons that will give you honest advice regardless of the sale they will make. And yes, when your dress comes in you will get great service and more undivided attention. Ask for Marianne, she is wonderful.

The Dresser is the only bridal shop I've found in Orange County where I really felt like I was getting personal service. You have to make an appointment. They are a very busy shop... but when you show up for your appointment they give you 100% attention. I worked with the owner, Marianne, and she is wonderful. She helped me pick my gown and she talked to me about a lot of things I never would have thought about in what to get and what to avoid. The Dresser is a shop where you are going to get a personal experience, and that is what my mom and I really wanted in shopping for my gown.

PROS: Wonderful personal service
CONS:

I recently went to "The Dresser" after it was recommended to me by a friend who had never been there. I didn't make an appointment because I didn't want it to be like all of the other dress shops that I go to that make you wait two or three days for an appointment and then you get there and there's really nothing there that you want to try on. The store manager was the only one there and she said that she couldn't let me try on the ONE dress that I saw in the whole store. She said I would have to make an appointment. It was a Monday afternoon, it wasn't that busy. When I asked her if I could wait in case someone cancelled she told me I could wait but she made sure to tell me that I could be waiting five hours. When I asked her to write down the name of the dress she said she couldn't write it down for me because she was with a bride and didn't have time to write it down. This was by far the worst dress shop that I visited. Just a little note for "The Dresser" your not the only shop in Southern Cali that sells the designers you carry. Set your store apart from the rest by offering better service.

The Dresser is a beautiful store located in downtown Fullerton. They specialize in wedding gowns, bridesmaids dresses, some prom dresses, mother of the bride dresses, flower girl dresses and more. You have to make an appointment to try on anything there. The employees are friendly and helpful, but make sure you keep on top of them by calling to make sure your order was put in, is there when its supposed to be, etc. Their dresses are gorgeous! I would suggest not bringing your kids into this store, its very small and lots of pretty white dresses hanging down to the floor! Not a good mix! :)
