Ladies - I am Mother of the Groom. I live over a hour away from Sacramento and HOF. I had tried several bridal shops and was coming up empty. So someone told me of HOF. I called 2 days before and talked to a very friendly woman on the phone. I had some questions and one was "do you have dressess in these sizes to try on?" Yes we do was her reply. I then told her where I was coming from and didnt want to waste my time and gas. . She said we have some is this and that size so yes come on by. We did. We were there before 10 am and already there was a group inside.. 4 women behind the desk chatting while we stood and waited abt 5 min.. Then some lady possibly the owner comes out asks what she can help me with and takes me to a rack with maybe 15 dresses on it. Nothing in my size to try on. Then she puts me with a very nice girl who took us to the back. Nothing. Not 1 size close to what I needed for me to try on. Bathroom was also dirty. I highly recommend for you to go somewhere else.

I went there yesterday and I had the most wonderful experience! I walked in and they pulled my dress of the rack and in 30 minutes I was walking out the door. I paid 230.55 for my dream dress that would have cost me 1000$ anywhere else.I was so happy and relieved! I'm getting married next month and they were able to find exaclty what I needed, just bring in pictures! It's always great to have a visual of what you are looking for. The service was great. They were really kind and treated me great. I had been through bridal shopping nightmares over the last few months. One of them being at Davids bridal. This place was drama free and very cooperative! I only went there for my wedding dress, but I plan to shop there in the future.

I agree with all of the negative reviews. I honestly cannot believe how they treat their customers. This is supposed to be an exciting time for brides to be and their families. I purchased a bridesmaid dress and was horrified of the service I received. When I went to try on my dress after it finally came in I needed to get alterations, which was fine, but I felt extremely rushed. I had an appointment and all the other sales associates were coming up to my seamstress telling here she is needed in like 4 different places, so I felt extremely rushed. NOT a good experience at all. The bride also had the same problem of feeling rushed and the sales associates were RUDE. The bride spent well over $4000.00 for her dress and was treated like that? UNACCEPTABLE!!! They should be treating her like a queen as far as I am concerned. I am a VERY dissatisfied customer and I will NEVER purchase anything from there again. Somebody really needs to contact the Better Business Bureau for their lack of service and ripping off customers.

I went to HOF because I was asked to be a bridesmaid in a wedding. The bride was getting her dress here & found the custest bridesmaid dresses for her bridesmaids. Well, they pushed us to come in & get fitted 11 months before the wedding, because the make may at any point "suddenly" discontinue the dress she'd picked out for us, so we all made our way down there by a certain date & got measured for our dresses. They took almost 6 months to come in, in that time, the whole groomsmen party came & got fitted for their tuxes..So imagine the thousands of dollars that is being spent there by this whole wedding party & they're charging me $48 to literally alter my dress 1/8 of an inch..Also, how are they charging tax on a flat rate for alterations? The employees are a little on the rude side (not all of them, but the majority of them are..at least to me they were)...the corset bra they wanted me to try on wasn't clean, but was supposedly brand new and then they wanted $55 for that, on top of the dress cost, shoes & alterations...they say they tell the bride about all the costs involved, but the bride in my case was unaware of any of it..just a very shady place to me, not a good experience & when I decide to take the plunge with my other half, we won't be going to HOF. You would think they'd be appreciative of the business when the whole wedding party comes in, but they're nonchalant about the whole thing, like theres not a hundred other stores the bride could've gone to to pick out the dresses.

I had a terrific experience at HOF. I went with my mom and sister and we were treated great. I am a heavier girl and I was afraid that this experience was going to make me feel uncomfortable about my weight, but it did just the opposite :) My weight was never an issue, I felt beautiful in every dress I tried on. Our attendant listened to what I wanted, as far as style and price range, and picked a fantastic selection to try on. She recognized that it was a very special moment for my mom, sister and I and did not interfere. She allowed my sister and mom pick out dresses for me to try on and never once pressured us to hurry up. We had so much fun and ended up finding the perfect dress for me. All the staff at HOF was very knowledgeable and friendly. I never felt pressured to buy and was able to stay in my budget. Thank you HOF for making this experience one I will treasure forever!

I have to say i read the reviews on this place and totally disagree with alot of them. I happen to be job hunting today and saw this place while driving and decided to stop. The woman who greeted me was very friendly , she immediately let me go look at bridesmaid dresses and was sooo helpful! A consultant named Mina came to help me..I had no appointment and it was the first time I even looked at dresses. Mina was great , I showed her a pic of a wedding dress on my phone i had downloaded..I told them my price budget, no funny looks at all, they even knew it was my first time and probably knew i wasnt getting the dress today but still had great customer service . They treated me as if I were going to purchase the gown today..no rushing, bringing me so many options!!..She and another girl helped me in every dress and were helpful in any way!!

I totally agree with the majority of the negative reviews of HOF. I first tried out their outlet down the street and since I never had tried on a wedding dress in my life was ready to buy a gown that day. The very nice salesperson/Mgr Lori was friendly, patient and even urged me to try the HOF main store before making a decison. I scheduled an apt at HOF andthe first time I was assisted by Mina and her assistant. They pulled 3 dresses for me, and I fell in love with one which was a sample. I had told them my budget was no more than $600 to $700. Well, I should have bought the dress that day, because the 3 times I have been back to inquire on the dress the price has risen to $1000 , and then $1100. Mina seems annoyed and when I come back and tells me how the dress will be gone if I don't purchase it that day. I really love the dress and it is in my size and is in good condition.However, I think that a dress that is a sample from their 2008 collection and been tried on by multiple people should be at least 50% off. Why bait me with a sample that is reduced and at the top of my budget and when I take a week to think about then come back and tell me it is now over a $1100??? I have not made a decision as it is my favorite dress and cant find it anywhere else since it is discontinued.The ironic thing is It will eventully be sent to the outlet and probably be sold for less

Wow, I have to say that I was really surprised how many poor reviews this place got. Being the ??yelper? that I am, I admit it, I never checked the reviews here before making my appointment. My mom was only in town for the weekend and I wasn??t very motivated to start this whole ??dress up? game. Mind you ?? I am the only woman on the planet who lacks the ??girlie? gene to even be able to match towels much less pick out the dress that??s supposed to be etched in my futures husband brain for years to come. So, around, up and down the one way streets of downtown Sac-town, and we arrive just in time for my scheduled appointment. Perhaps because I??m not really the ??frills and foofy? kind, I really liked the older building with the amazing staircase centered in the room. Seriously, it was obviously an older building but the layout seemed perfect with the dressing rooms just hidden at the top of the stairs and select dresses, shoes and accessories decoration the room. My appointment was with ??Mina? and right away she complimented me for being the perfect bride who had my hair up my own bra and my own shoes. (Compliments always ease the way through any slightly uncomfortable situation in my world.) She immediately directed me to their sales rack ?? even before asking my budget. Impressive, they didn??t go straight for the jugular! She gave us space to look things over and then we followed her up the cool stairs and back to a dressing room. Only then did she ask for my price range, and didn??t even cringe when I gave my meek $500 response. Instead she told another girl to bring more dresses! I really felt comfortable with the entire staff. One gal was there to assist with clips and dresses, another, I swear was just there to personally congratulate me when mom and I actually got teary-eyed over one of the gowns. I mean, this was how it was supposed to be, right?! It was fun, comfortable, not rushed, and very informative. They had no problems with us taking pictures and gave us her opinions of the good and bad features of each dress. I really felt as though Mina ??knew? about these dresses and the (mysterious) ??materials?. She never lost patience even when I wanted to try my top three favorites on again! This was even after letting her know I wasn??t going to buy a dress that day ?? again, no attitude, no pressure ?? she just took notes on what I liked and advised me which ones would and would not be available if I opted to wait. I felt very informed if even overwhelmed by the variety. I wish now that I had just bought a damn dress ? I only made it to one other place that day - David??s Bridal in Roseville. That??s a whole different review ?? let??s just say that I am actually dreading my commitment to go back to the lacey cattle ranch with florescent lighting?..

Cons: None that I could think of

I searched for my wedding dress for a long time. We're talking about a years worth of searching and at least 15 different bridal salons. The store I've been to run from mom-and-pop shops to expensive salons. But NEVER have I been as disgusted by the service I received at House of Fashion. The woman who helped me was very pushy. Several of their sample gowns were so disgusting I feared for my personal well being while putting them on. After finally finding a dress that I loved (and this is the only reason they deserve even one star) the sales woman told me I would have it two weeks before my wedding. Two weeks!?! My wedding wasn't for another seven months. TWO WEEKS! After finding the dress at another store I find out the the company who makes the dress takes four months to deliver a dress and are always on time or early. That woman was manipulating me so that I would feel pressured to buy the dress that day. Furthermore, I've have heard several stories (one from a close friend) about this place ordering a dress too big for a bride so that they make more money during alterations. Go here if you must, but DO NOT let them push you around and get a second opinion on the delivery date of your dress.

My daughter's dress was amazing - very different and unique. Our consultant Mahin was the best - she knew what would look good, and what we should avoid. My daughter even changed her mind and Mahin couldn't have been more gracious.

Since my daughter is petite, we needed quite a bit of alterations to shorten the dress. No only were the alterations done on time, the dress fit her perfectly!

This was a great experience, and I highly recommend House of Fashion.

...and they stepped it up. When I went for my first visit, I left wanting to cry. It was a Thursday afternoon, and there was nobody in the shop, but I waited for 45 MINUTES PAST MY APPOINTMENT TIME before my consultant finally came to help me. I had to go to the front desk twice durin that time to inquire if someone was ready for me, and BOTH times they said "Oh, you haven't been helped?" Seriously?! Of course I haven't been helped! If I were being helped I would be upstairs in a big white dress!! So when I finally met with my consultant, who I shall not name as I hate to throw individuals under the bus but not entire companies, she took me upstairs and showed me to my room. She held out her hand and said "Pictures?" I said I didn't have any and she sighed, looking irritated. As she started to walk away to pull dresses I was trying to describe what I wanted, but she wasn't listening. She brought back a few dresses that were nice, but not what I had asked for. In her defense, she did pull about 10 dresses for me to try, but I was only allowed to spend about 30 seconds in each one before she said "Ok, ready for the next one?" I barely got a look, but none of them really caught my eye, so I guess that was fine. When we went through all those she asked which 3 I would like to add to my card, to which I said "Well, I didn't really like any of those, are there any different ones I can try?" She replied that she had brought all that fit my description and that were in my price range, and that I should just narrow it to 3. So I just chose three at random so I could get the hell outta there, never intending to return.

But then I did...On a Monday early afternoon. I got right in with my consultant, Mahin, and she took me right up. This time I had come with very a very specific style in mind, and wasn't going to stray from that. She asked me what I like, and I started to say as she looked me up and down. I stopped midsentence because I could tell she was going to say something. "V-neck with a mermaid skirt would be perfect for you." THAT WAS EXACTLY WHAT I WAS GOING TO ASK FOR!!! I had tried on that shape at another salon and it is perfect for my body. She nailed it! She proceed to take me to the dresses and asked me about each one as she pulled it, and was very respectful of my price range. Each dress she brought was beautiful on, but there were two in particular that were great, and the best one was the very first one that I tried on. She let me stand there and stare as long as I wanted, and he assistant took TONS of pictures from different angles for me. She even suggested I put on the first one again because it was my favorite. We have it narrowed down to 2, but we both love the first one I tried, and it just happens to be the least expensive of all that I tried on, $1000 UNDER my price range! I felt like Mahin was genuinely out to find me a beautiful dress that I could afford, and not just looking to find one at the top end of my budget. She understands how a dress should look, and takes into account your size and shape, not just the hottest trends. I am very happy that I gave HOF a second chance, and even happier that I found Mahin! I set up my second appointment with her to go with my bridesmaids, and I can't wait to show them the dresses we found.

I would say not to let the other reviews keep you from at least trying this place out. If you get a bad vibe, go with it. Your gut is usually right. But I gave them another shot and ended up finding two amazing dresses, and getting fantastic service. I guess the second time is the charm!

Pros: selection

Cons: service

.

I have already purchased my Dress there, it wasn't a bad experience. I went in on a thursday morning when the store just opened, I did not have an appointment but they took me in and let me try on dresses. I tried on about 15 dresses. Nina, the worker there was very professional and kind. Also knew a lot about her job and dresses. She asked me about the style that i liked and my price rance thats why i was able to pick out the perfect dress so quikly. I tried on about 50 dresses including the other stores I went to. I also recieved my dress a month early! that was amazing. I will not do alternations there however because they are too expensive. I found a taylor who does a very good job and it will cost me no more then $1oo for trimming and making sleeves! Otherwise the store was clean and staff was professional.....Maybe it was just a good morning, but it worked for me :) good luck!

WOW! how stressful. Not only does it seem like no one knows what's going on... but they make you wait even with an appointment. Terrible service, horrible English, and dirty floor. I have been here to get a bridesmaid dress 3 times for friends' weddings, every time it reminds me how much this place sucks. Save yourself some sanity and DO NOT GO HERE.

I went there to look for my bridal gown, and the sales lady first greeted me in a very nice and sweet voice until she looked at me from top to bottom. Immediate she took me to a room full of dresses on the second floor, and told me to look through the dresses myself. I told her I was looking for a specific style, but she told me to look for it myself. Of course with so many dresses in the room, I didn't know where to start. I asked her if she had my size in stock and she she told me "there's one, but it's $1600, can you afford it"? I felt very insulted. Then she told me "I don't think there's any thing here for you". She then took me down to look at bridemaids dresses, and told me again to go through the dresses myself. Of course, at that point, I just walked out of the place. I would think that if you pay so much for a dress, you would receive some service. This lady did not provide any service, but was extremely rude to me. She judged me the minute she saw me and assumed I could not afford anything in the store. I would not go back there again.

Very warm atmosphere and friendly people. I did not know that they are working 24 hours. In fact this is the only salon in this neighborhood that provide 24 hours service. I was hesitant first time because of "questionable reputation of the salon's at night time...", but was gladly surprised with level of the service and absence of ANY indication of "inappropriate behaviors? from salon staff. I would definitely recommend this salon to the serious clients...

I came to HOF because my sister bought her dress here. She was satisfied with the dress but warned me she was disgusted with their service. Normally, I am not too bothered by service, so I came to see thier selection.

They were the worst employees of any establishment i have ever been to in my life. I told them what kind of dresses I liked, and specifically what I did not want on them. They brought me nothing but what I didn't like! To add insult to injury, they told me what I was looking for "was probably out of my price range." That was it for me.

The one dress I told them I really wanted to try on, which I had the style number and everything, they claimed they sold out of... only for some assistant employee to bring me that dress when the other lady wasn't around!

it was blatant they were Russian and only cared about the one other bride who was there... a Russian girl!
I walked out refusing to ever step foot in there again. I only joined cityshearch to complain about this place when I saw it as a top place to shop! Save yourself time, money, and self respect and go somewhere else!

I advise people to go to The House of Fashion because i had very pleasant experiences there. First i would like to say that they are extremely friendly and helpful not only to me but to all the customers. My consultant was picking out the most beautiful wedding gowns for me and they suited my style very well. They were all so gorgeous, i couldn't decide which one to pick but the staff helped me out and arranged everything for me, the time of delivery (my dress even came earlier) i picked out shoes and a veil. They helped me so so much, they did everything they could just so i would be happy. We had tears of joy in our eyes when everything was done. House of Fashion is the best bridal salon that i have ever been to. I went to many different salons around California but i found my dress in the house of fashion and i had the best experience. It was so beautiful and relaxing, they did not rush you and gave their honest opinion about everything, which helped me a lot. If you want to be treated like a princess i strongly encourage you to go there! trust me, you will never regret that you chose this place.
and for those brides that had a bad experience..its just your bitchy attitude, Get over it!

Cons: n/a

Future Brides: DO NOT GO TO HOUSE OF FASHION. The house of Fashion is dirty, has rude employees, and is an all-around dishonest business. As a bride, this is far too important of a time in your life to be treated the way you will be treated at the House of Fashion. I am stuck 10 days before my wedding with a very expensive wedding gown with spots on it and the HOF refuses to have it professionally cleaned, replaced, or to let me return it. I have never been treated so horribly in my life. I purchased my gown and veil, nine bridesmaids dresses, a mother of the bride dress, and a mother of the groom dress from HOF and I still cannot get any decent service. The employees will let other brides try on your dress that you have already bought and paid for if you leave your dress at the shop to be altered. They will tell you exactly what you want to hear and have no intention of backing up their promises. If you do buy a dress from the house of fashion, which I do not recommend, be very skeptical and do not believe anything the salespeople tell you. DO NOT LET THE HOUSE OF FASHION TAKE ADVANTAGE OF ANYMORE UNSUSPECTING BRIDES!!!! Buy your dress from Miosa, Bella Donna, or pretty much any other bridal store in town. I would have rather gone to David's Bridal in hindsight. House of Fashion does have a big selection, so go there, find your style, and order it from a different shop!

I had the worst experience at the House of Fashion. The owner/manager/employees are rude and dishonest. They will tell you what you want to hear with no intention of backing up their promises and then will stick you with a non-refundable dress that you purchased under false pretenses. If I could do it over again, I would not step foot in this horrible establishment. If you purchase a dress from HOF, demand to take it with you because if you leave it there they will let other brides try on your dress that you have paid for in full. DO NOT BUY A SAMPLE from them. They will tell you the will "have it cleaned" and repaired, but they will do a poor job on alterations/repairs and refuse to clean it. I cannot say enough what a horrible business HOF is. Save yourself a lot of trouble and heartache and take your business elsewhere. I can't believe this place is still in business. They have been ripping off unsuspecting brides for the last 45 years.... don't let it continue!

I am a first time bride. I am extremely positive and optimistic regarding every step of planning our wedding. I have met with many different businesses regarding all aspects of wedding planning, and I have never encountered such inconsiderate customer service. If you think about going to this place, be prepared to feel rushed, embarrassed, and disgusted! I tried to be very kind, as I was very excited to try on wedding dresses, however after trying on 3 dresses, I couldn't take it and left. I tried on dresses with my maid of honor, mother, and future mother-in-law, with me, and they too could not believe how awful the staff was.Very, very, very poor service! Do not go here!!!! Afterwards, I went to Bella Donna Bridal and they were absolutely wonderful!

I had to leave my review after reading the other two less than satisfactory reviews. I can definitely agree that this business is too busy for the first time bride. This will be my first wedding as a bride and I was given the run around in this two story large place of business. After repeatedly trying to find someone to assist me, they pawned me off on this very young lady who had no idea what it means to provide good customer service! Discouraged...I left the place feeling defeated!

I can't believe this place even has good reviews. They do have a lot of selection, but I think they are either too busy or dishonest in their pricing.. and depending on who you get, they are RUDE and snotty as hell. How do they know that I don't have money to buy one of their high end designer dresses? I was polished, was nice, and was dressed appropriately. I bought a wedding dress for a decent price and it came with a veil. They told me it would take 6 months to make, but they told me they would ship and give me no tax for the dress since I wasn't having the wedding in California. All was good until the dress came in, and they called me up and told me that I'd have to pay tax, shipping fee, and some more money to have it insured, even though the receipt said it was free. I ended up just picking up the dress and paying for the tax just to get my dress and get out of there ASAP. Their alterations are expensive - 400-500 dollars for normal dress work. I luckily did not need much done to my dress so I'll take it somewhere else, but they were snooty when I appeared happy that I didn't have to pay for extra alterations, but wanted at least $100 for pressing the dress if I had minimal alterations and did it at their site. They are out to make money, and be rude at the same time.

I went to the House of Fashion to shop for my wedding gown and was pleasantly surprised by the organization and tremendous help in the store. I not only found the dress I was looking for in one day, but was so happy with the continued service I received from all sales associtates. Mina was my favorite, she has wonderful, elegant taste and knew what looked good and what didn't. I can't imagine going to another bridal salon to choose the perfect dress for the most memorable day in a woman's life. Thank you HOF. --Natalie Wood

Another perfect review for HOF! They said my dress would come in the middle of june but it came way early and it was PERFECT. When I tried it on it fit like a glove. My mother cried and my aunt and godmother did too. My little 1 1/2 year old niece approved of it too! The service was still perfect and I have no complaints! Need to go back in august to make sure i don't need any changes. I LOVE YOU HOF!!!!!!!

Thirty-three years ago I bought my bridal gown and bridesmaids dresses at HOF and the owner then (still the same) was rude, which obviously is passed on to some of the salespeople. My daughter did not buy her birdal gown there for her wedding, although we did attempt to give them a chance, but due to location we were stuck with getting the bridesmaides dresses there. I agree with other reviews that they get you on alterations and they deliberately try to get a size too big so it needs alterations (don't let them!). We were lucky that we did get a patient sales lady on a few occasions but normally they are very rushed and trying to help more than one customer at a time and I guess we expect some special treatment for the price we pay for our "special day". You are better off going to a small bridal shop. We ended up at one where they didn't have as many choices as HOF but what they had was great and very reasonably priced (including the alterations). Don't be fooled by the big glass on the windows and the great location. If service means anything to you, go somewhere else!

Approximately 4 months ago, I drove from Fresno to Sacramento in search of a wedding dress for myself. I could have chosen to start a search in my home town, but knew I would find exactly what I wanted because both my daughters had purchased their gowns from the House of Fashion previously.

The bridal attendant, Yvonne, had assisted both daughters in their selection of wedding gowns, and I too, chose to meet with her. My experience was nothing short of amazing! Yvonne was professional, attentive to every detail, and made the entire shopping experience delightful!

About two weeks ago, I met with the alteration department, and again, had the same experience. I was graciously attended to with courteous expertise. The two ladies that assisted even stayed an hour past closing to meet my needs!

I have recommended this bridal shop to anyone who is getting married because of the marvelous experiences my daughters and I had. If you want attention to detail, all questons and concerns addressed in a timely manner, there is no better place to shop for your wedding gown and accessories!

I would consider myself to be very picky about everything, and when I went shopping for my wedding dress I never expected to find something the same day ! After trying on only 5 dresses I found the dress. Not only was it in my price range, but it was beautiful. It only took me 45 minutes to find it also. Mahin helped me, and she rocks. I would never go anywhere else to buy a wedding dress!

When I chose and purchaed my dress in March, I wanted to place the order for my shoes. It was a very busy Saturday for them and I had taken more than the usual amount of time to choose my dress. Perhaps that is why my House of Fashion consultant brushed me off and said to order my shoes when I had my fitting: Don't worry! It'll be okay, she said! I really wanted it done and taken care of, but I decided to leave myself in the hands of the experts. I ordered my shoes at my first fitting, only to receive a message saying that they were backordered and the manufacturer would not have anymore until after my wedding. House of Fashion suggested everything from white shoes to go with my ivory dress or a different size. If they really took care of their customers, they would have called other bridal shops in Sacramento on my behalf to try to find an available, new pair, but the issue didn't seem to be important to them at all. They had me over a barrell -- alterations had been done based on these shoes and a week and a half prior to my wedding I simply did not have time to run around Sacramento to look for new ones. They cleaned up the sample pair (ivory and in my size) -- and they discounted them -- but, I must say, these are very shabby shoes for $50 and who wants to wear shabby shoes on their wedding day at any price? Be careful if you choose House of Fashion: you'll have to look after yourself, despite all their pacifying words.

This place is simply the best. I got the greatest service, help, and feelings from this place. This place is extremely busy but they are great about giving you lots of help. My wedding consultant knew what looked good on me and kept bringing out more and more dresses that all looked amazing. I knew that no matter what dress I choose it would be beautiful. I went other places and the quality of the fabrics and beading were nothing compared to this place. Unlike other places who simply have dresses on racks that everyone gets to try on. They say they do a "spot check" but everyone has gotten to try on your dress before you get it. At this place your dress is made by the designer and it tailored to fit you. No one else has worn the dress. They have a range of dresses that fits every budget. After getting my dress I felt like a princess and the ladies made you feel so good there. They were not pushy and rushing me at all. In fact the first time we went there we were there for over 3 hours because we were having so much fun. They squeezed us in the second time somehow, and we had a hard time choosing because there were all so wonderful. Again somehow she was able to give me first class service and help us out in determinging our decision (which was so hard to make). I would not go to any other place but this one if you want the best experience!

After 9 years my Fiance finally proposed to me. I have been waiting for this day all my life so I wanted everything to be perfect....and of course that means having the perfect dress. Amara, my wedding consultant listened intensively to what kind of gown I want. She is very professional and competent because all the gowns she pulled out were beautiful and similar to my taste. She was very honest and know when the right time to give her opinions. The entire time I was there she comforted me by telling me not to panic or stress out. I felt relaxed and relieved and finally found my perfect dress.

.

I was helped by Amara both times I visited HoF. She was amazing and found the dress that I Was looking for when I could not find it in their showrooms. She was honest with her feelings about my dress which was nice since I went alone. Once she saw the kind of dress I liked, she bought out others that she thought would suite me.

I ended up buying my wedding dress there partly because Amara was such a joy to work with. She made me feel perfect in my perfect dress!

Pros: Dress selection, freedom to look/tak pictures

Cons: Busy on weekends and in the late afternoon, had to wait

You know that in this business, people that work in these salons has to deal with brides that are anxious, picky and sometimes winy. And knowing one of them (my self), I can admit that?s not an easy job! They need to be extra patient and understanding. I've visited more than 7 bridal salons and tried more than 80 dresses. In House of Fashion Bridal House, I?ve received the best customer service from a sweet loving lady called Yvonne. She has a motherly side of her that is caring at the same time real. You don?t feel being pushed or sold. You can feel that she wants you to be happy. When you buy a dress you buy a feeling. So this salon is that kind of place where you can get a glimpse of your most special night. You won?t regret!

Pros: Beautiful store, very elegant, lots of mirrors!!

Cons: upstairs dressing area a bit crowded

After four hours of phone calls trying to find the "dream dress", my daughter had fallen in love with in a magazine we got in contact with this shop. They were the only shop who offered to order in the dress without us buying it first or paying half of it. She needed to try it on . No shop in No Calif or So Oregon had the dress in stock. We made a five hour drive to go to this shop and got there without an appointment on a Saturday morning. They were very busy. We had been told a couple of things over the phone which we not exactly store policies. When we ordered the dress and were told it would take four months to arrive we were devistated. The staff quickly realized this and went out of their way to help us. Though we had no appointment and they were busy, someone was quickly assigned to us. Yvonne and Emily were wonderful. They took us upstairs and helped my daughter try on at least twelve dresses in a three hour period. They learned quickly what her likes and dislikes were and worked tirelessly with us. They helped her find a second dress that was a possibility if the ordered one did not arrive in time or just wasn't right. It was the most full service we had experences. We went to a total of eight shops in a month period. The offfice staff held to what we were told on the phone. They called first thing Monday morning to order the dress and called us with the news, the dress would be there in ten days. We went back down this past Monday. The dress not only fit (with just a few alterations) but it is her dream dress and beautiful on her. Once again we were blessed with the very attentive Yvonne and Emily. I can not thank them enough for what began as a very stressful experience. Thank you for going the extra mile and making our dress buying experience wonderful. Yes they appeared to be a bit more expense but not out of our budget. To have the perfect dress is worth it.

Pros: full service, friendly staff and willing to work with you, quick delivery

Cons: a bit higher priced and five hours from where we live-very busy

This place has dresses and in that they do ok, but they are pushy, rude, arrogant, and will walk right in and open up your dressing room while you are changing! I was humiliated because of these people. Beware, if you want self respect go elsewhere!

Pros: None to speak of; selection is only average

Cons: Rude, arrogant, extremely pushy, humiliating experience as they will walk right into changing rooms while you are undressing!

I went to House of Fashion not expecting much, based on reviews here. But it was worth a try...
However, it was wonderful - I brought in clips of things I liked in dresses - rouching, lace-up backs and a sweetheart neckline. They had almost every dress in my clips, and knew what they were even with only a tiny part of the whole dress. They were lovely, but a little over my budget and not 'perfect'...but then she brought me a *new* dress with everything I wanted. Absolutely perfect. And 200 under my budget! And they were nice enough to sell it to me off the shelf. There's no way I would be able to find such a good-quality perfect dress so soon before my wedding.
I may get alterations somewhere else as not many are needed and I think that HOF's may be a bit overpriced. But I'm very happy with my experience here.
Advice: make an appointment! You need one...and bring pictures of dresses or parts of dresses you like.

Cons: alterations overpriced, can get busy, appointment required

not only is the quality of their service marginal, but beware of the alterations! The biggest problem that stuck out for me was the unethical and dishonest manner in which they get the alteration business/prices. They give brides a flyer quoting a 90.00 price for basic alterations and a verbal quote in person at the store when we were there of 35.00 for bridesmaide dresses. Now, realizing that that price can very in that ballpark depending on the type/amount of alteration needed you expect some sort of truth to their quotes. My bride got charged over 260.00 for her strap shortening and hem.....I was charged 177.00 for a basic hem and taking in of a simple a line skirt and strapless top bridesmaid dress. Not really in the ballpark price that was mentioned....now after the fact it seems to me they inflate the price and are not upfront/honest about how and what they charge. The horror stories from other brides that I now have heard from other shops as I investigated this was also alarming! Be careful and shop around!

Yvonne and Emily at House of Fashion bridal shop were great!!! They worked with me to find a discontinued veil, when other bridal shops through out the USA wouldn't take the time to even find out if that was possible. They called the veil designers headquarters and were able to find out that the veil was indeed able to be ordered. Yvonne and Emily kept me informed every step of the way, and even sent me pictures via e-mail of the veil. Yvonne, Emily, and staff were great and I will recommend them to everyone I know!

For anyone who wants to recieve good customer service when looking for their wedding gown do not go here. Not only was my consultant late, she did not even introduce herself or ask me any questions about my wedding. She then shoved my mother and me upstairs to sift through racks of dresses ourselves, while the consultant wandered off to deal with something totally unrelated to my dress search. I am not a bridezilla at all, but I do expect at least some service if I am about to spend 1000+ on a bridal gown. I tried HOF out since it is the largest salon in Sac but I really don't understand how they stay in business. My recommedation for a truly service oriented salon is to make the drive to San Jose to visit Trudy's. Good luck to anyone who goes to HOF

PROS: none
CONS: everything

I went in once by myself and had a hard time finding someone to help and stay helping me in the bridesmaid dress area. Then I went back with my mom for my Bridal Dress appt and the lady that helped us was amazing! She listened to everything that I was looking for in a dress and then when I told her I hate looking threw the racks she went out and brought me dress after dress. I ended up finding my dress the first time I even went to look for it. The sales lady was fun and encouraging and we really enjoyed ourselves. I have made a day to bring in all my bridesmaids to try on and buy their dresses in Nov so we'll see how it goes. I'm a little worried about the alterations since we haven't gotten to that point and I have read the above reviews. But so far so good. I have had a great time there! I guess the earlier the better so you don't have to stress when your dress comes in a little later then expected. Brides need to take that into consideration so they don't have to stress when it happens1 :0)

OK, So I just got done with my Bridesmaid Dress buying this weekend! I went so great. The only thing that was a little annoying was once again it was dificult to get someone to help us and stay helping us. Everytime we turned around the girl was off helping someone else. They really need to have appt's for Bridesmaid dresses too. I mean we were all there to purchase and they couldn't care less. But we found what we wanted and made all our orders. The young girl who was sizing my bridesmaids sized them all wrong. When we asked her about it she just said thats the way the book tells me to do it. We had to try on the sizes to prove she was way off. That was a little frustrating. But we ordered 5 bridesmaid dresses and 3 flower girl dresses so it's nice to have a one stop shop. They really need to work on customer service. All in all it was fine. Now we just have to get through alterations!

I went in for my first fitting for my wedding dress, an experience that is supposed to be both exciting and joyous. Instead they brought out my dress and I emmediately knew it did not look the same as the sample dress I fell in love with and purchased. The sales ladies buzzed around me TRYING to convince me it looked exactly the same, but I was not fooled! They brought out the sample dress after I had to ask them to, and my dress was definately different. Everything from less beads, different (cheaper) beads, embroidery not completed, crystals sewn on incorrectly, MISSING crystals, the side seams were done so badly that part of the embroidery design was sewn into the seam and you coudn't see the whole design and the waist line was done totally different than the sample dress. All of this they blamed on "artistic differences". I told them for a dress I paid over $4000 for, I didn't want any "artistic differences". Initially they were going to try to fix the dress themselves as best they could. Then they decided to get Eve of Milady involved to fix it, since they made the dress. So my dress has been shipped to New York 5 weeks before my wedding. Eve of Milady PROMISED me they would call me as soon as they received my dress and that with so many mistakes they would more than likely replace it. So far I've received no phone call, and House of Fashion tells me they won't replace the dress but instead try their best to fix it. I told them they can keep their dress and now I have to scramble to find a new dress.Let's see if House of Fashion refunds my money, I'll keep you posted! I only have 4 weeks til my wedding. Talk about stressful. And I really do believe your wedding dress experience should be private and personal. You feel like bridal cattle in that store and most times it's pure caos in that place. Beware when you get fitted, there are sewing needles littered all over the floor! Take your money elsewhere, I recommend a smaller bridal boutique.

I came to this bridal salon specifically because it was the closest that carries the brand name "Watters & Watters." I only ordered a bridesmaid dress for myself for my sisters wedding. At first they told me that Watters & Watters didn't have enough fabric to make my dress. I had to make an un-necessary trip to pick a different dress. I was very angry and sent a email to Watters and asked them how a huge company didn't have enough fabric to make a dress. The next day House of Fashion called me and told me that they could make it. Every time I called to check the status on my dress, they couldn't find it or didn't know what I was talking about. The people who work there are nice. But their company is disfunctional and I wouldn't recommend it to a desperate person. Furthermore, my dress isn't available to pick up until 2 days before the wedding even though I told them that I wanted it 2 weeks in advance. These people are disorganized and full of excuses.

I was wary to go to this store based on these reviews but after searching around Sacramento, discovered, that if you want something done right, you go here. The staff was friendly and accomodating. Further, the alterations done on my dress were amazing and they were able to turn my dress into the dress of my dreams in about a week. They were also able to make my veil, which I could only describe, completely from scratch and it turned out perfect! Other stores attempted to make the veil and it turned out bunched or wrinkled. I thought they were amazing and would definitely recommend them to anyone!

I stumbled upon this site and have to say that I was very surprised at some of the reviews about House of Fashion. They were great! My sister found her dress there and it was the best experience for us. We had already been to Bridal Mart, David's Bridal and other salons with terrible luck. The other places were full of pushy sales people with a terrible dress selection. House of Fashion was an answer to prayer. They gave great customer service with and even better dress selection. I plan on getting my dress there and will recommend them to everyone I know.

I have had a terrible experience working with this company. I do not want any bride to go through what I have gone through. Inicially they were great but the second and third time contacts were aweful. A fast food customer service is better then the customer service I have received here. If your are willing to withstand terrible customer service for a fabulous dress then please go but if you want your wedding dress to be your dream shopping trip I recommend going somewhere else.

I made an appointment at House of Fashion for a Monday to try on wedding dresses. I had people come in from out of town to share the experience with me. The ladies that assisted me brought in approximately 5 dresses and after trying them on and not finding that any of them were right for me they told me my time was up. They provided me 45 minutes to try on dresses. You should be given at least an hour and a half MINIMUM. I did end up ordering my bridesmaid dresses from there since we were all there that day. I would advise you to lie on your wedding date. Say it's a month earlier than it actually is. They told us it would be 6 to 8 weeks to get the dresses, when actually it was 14 weeks.

Arrived unannounced to see bridesmaids dresses - staff was very accomodating - pulled from stock just what we were looking for - have appointment in a few weeks for bride's dress- will see how it goes

Pros: fantastic stock, knowledgeable staff, good parking

Cons: small dressing rooms, poor mirrors, crowded
