I found the one (the other one) here! This was the 4th or 5th shop I had tried on dresses at and wasn't sure a resale shop would have enough in my size. They have a shockingly large selection for a tiny store and I shouldn't have worried. Their facebook page highlights new arrivals and you can see quite a bit of the inventory before your appointment.Sent on 12/19/2014
Most of the dresses are samples and some are pre-owned. The advantage there is that a pre-owned dress is likely already bustled and hemmed, if you get the right shoes you can save a bundle on alterations. All the dresses are selected carefully and are in perfect condition and cleaned before they hit the store.
You can also pick up veils, belts, jackets and headpieces for a steal. We saw $3000 and $2500 gowns for less than half. I found my perfect dress with the first one I tried on and hadn't seen anything like it at any of the larger boutiques. I also really liked that you get to go through the racks and pick dresses, the owner will help you but isn't overbearing. You can look as much as you like and you get to dress yourself.
Service was fantastic, we were running late and she still got us in and let me try 5 gowns and re-try my pick before her next appointment. The salon is super cute but very small so going with a ton of people is not ideal. I had two friends, which was plenty for good opinions but not too overwhelming. And they let you take as many pictures as you want so I could share with my mom who was out of town.
Overall, great selection, unique as it draws from numerous sources and incredible value. You can try on pre-owned without the hassle of those websites where you have to trust the dress is in decent condition.

I was a bride who was sure I wouldn't find a dress that I fell in love with. Lauren at Dahlia Bridal changed all of that. She made me feel very comfortable, listened very closely to what I was looking for, and helped me find the perfect gown for my day. The value was incomparable to going anywhere else. The dress, though used, is in fabulous condition.Sent on 03/25/2014

I had such a wonderful wedding gown experience at Dahlia Bridal! The boutique is nestled in the charming Point Loma area and is decorated beautifully. Walking up you know you are going to have a fun and unique experience as your name is written on the cute sign outside, and then inside you feel like you're in a pinterest/etsy ad haha. Honestly, I made an appointment just to check out the boutique because I was curious about sample and once-worn gowns, I had no intentions to purchase my wedding dress! There were sooo many dresses to choose from, from the rustic vintage bride to the modern fashionista! AND the prices couldn't be beat! Each dress was pristine! Cassandra was so knowledgeable and helpful in pulling dresses out for me. Finally, a gorgeous, normally out of my budget, Lazaro dress caught my eye and the next thing I know I'm writing a (very reasonable) check AND walking out of the store with dress in hand! The Lazaro gown was a sample but was in great condition! Thank you, Cassandra and Dahlia Bridal!Sent on 07/28/2013
