An amazing experience!!
It's not often that you get the kind of amazing customer service that makes you want to take time to write a glowing review. That is exactly what I received from Judy and her husband at the Bridal Gowns of Orange County. They fit us in the same day we called and gave us personalized service. There are so many choices of dresses to choose from and the styles are unique from the ones you see at the big chain stores. Did I mention the prices are excellent? I put the dress on hold and every time I emailed Judy with a question, she immediately emailed me back. Dress shopping was a great, easy, and fun experience. I am going to go back for the men's tuxedos.Sent on 07/23/2020

I said yes thanks to judy!
WHAT A WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE!!! Judy went above and beyond before during and after the appointment. There was a particular dress that I wanted to try on and she was able to locate and have the dress shipped to the shop. She was very helpful and communicated with me about every detail (ordering, shipping, tailoring etc). They had a great selection of dresses from bridal to flower girls. I said Yes to the Dress on the spot and within minutes of leaving the shop, I received a call from Judy that the dress would be in late Dec early Jan. Thank you Judy for everything!Sent on 08/08/2020

Judy is amazing, so helpful, and just the right kind of person to put me at ease about finding the perfect dress! A friend of mine and my sister-in-law both got their dresses from Judy, and I loved them and thought they were beautiful and unique. Since Judy has all sorts of styles, I felt like her options were more unique than other bigger stores!Sent on 10/01/2020
I found my dress pretty quickly, it has lace sleeves which is exactly what I wanted, and I couldn't be more excited for my wedding! I highly recommend Bridal Gowns Orange County.

Amazing attention to her clients!Sent on 11/14/2017
Judy is just the best, hands down. Getting our dress has been the best, easiest experience so far out of all our wedding planning. My daughter lives in Vegas, I live in San Diego, we looked at dresses from Vegas to orange county to San Diego and Judy was able to find her dress at the best price! She is just the sweetest most helpful, experienced lady in the business. I also sent her pictures of the type of veil we were looking for and when we came to pick up our dress she had a variety of veils, exactly like what we wanted which really helped us get this dress thing all taken care of all at once while we had dress there at the same time to see everything all together. She carries all the designer dresses and you will be very well taken care of. Judy truly loves what she does and you can tell. She cares more about the bride/mom being happy than charging astronomical ridiculous prices for everything!! Thank you Judy!! We will use you again when my other daughter gets engaged!!!

I had such a great experience at Bridal Gowns Orange County. After having four previous consultations at other boutiques and being unable to find a dress I absolutely loved at a reasonable price, a friend found out about this place and booked an appointment for me. We came in a few minutes early and we were greeted and helped right away by Judy's husband John while she was finishing up with another bride. I was immediately impressed with their kindness, patience and the genuine care that they had for their customers. They pulled some great options for me and I ended up falling in love with and purchasing the very last dress I tried on. They made me feel very comfortable and never rushed me or pressured me into buying. Highly recommended and I'm looking forward to coming back for my fittings.Sent on 01/20/2020

The bridal gowns are absolutely stunning and they have lots of unique styles! The owner, Judy and her husband John, were so sweet, helpful, and patient. I went in 3 times and they never pressured me and encouraged me to only buy the dress if it was “the one.” John has a special eye too! He picked out the dress I ended up getting and made it so difficult because he gave me so many runner up beautiful dresses! This couple made my dress shopping experience awesome. I highly recommend.Sent on 12/01/2019

WOW! This place is a hidden gem.
Wow! The customer service here is INCREDIBLE. I’m a plus size bride that’s super uncomfortable with my body and hardly ever wear dresses. They made the process so easy and stress free for me. They knew exactly what to pull for my taste and body type. I’m so impressed with the dress I purchased and cannot wait to wear it on my big day!Sent on 02/18/2020

A very positive experience
A very positive experience. My daughter purchased her dress today and the experience was very positive. Judy was very helpful and knowledgeable and it was great that my daughter found her dress on the first try. I felt like we got very personalized service and Judy really took the time to get to know my daughterSent on 01/10/2020

The BEST dress shopping experience!
I had THE BEST experience at Bridal Gowns Orange County. Judy and John are the most adorable married couple who own the place, so you can feel good about supporting a local business. They took care in every detail, they had a personalized sign to welcome me in and took the pressure off from the very instant we arrived. They only schedule one appointment at a time so all their attention is focuses on just you. John and Judy sat me down and took some time to get to know me and what I was interested in from a dress. Considering that and my budget, they pulled dresses that fit within both. Browsing through racks on your own can become overwhelming quickly, so I very much appreciated this approach. Judy personally helped me into and out of every gown and really took the time to learn what I liked and didn’t like about each one. With that information she ended up pulling a style of dress that I didn’t even know existed and that ended up being MY DRESS! It should also be noted that they specialize in short notice weddings and even mentioned they have helped people getting married the next day. COULD NOT be happier. There is nothing I could say to knock this place. HIGHLY recommend.Sent on 02/24/2020

A must see.
I saw a lot of great reviews for this shop and decided to make an appointment myself. Judy was really friendly and made sure that myself and my group were comfortable in the shop. We were free to pick out whatever dresses I wanted to try on. She even took one right off a mannequin which was really awesome. I think she had a great selection and she definitely made sure to stay within my price point. I ended up cancelling two other dress appointments because I fell in love with a dress and did not think I could find anything else like it at my price point. It is definitely worth checking out this shop if you can !Sent on 05/25/2019

Great Bridal Store
I loved finding and buying my wedding dress at Bridal Gowns of Orange County! Judy was great. She was so kind and helpful. She let me try on several dresses until I found the perfect dress. She gave me a great deal on my dream wedding dress. The dress I found fit great. The dress made me feel like a Royal Princess. I would definitely recommend Judy and Bridal Gowns of Orange County. I had gone to another bridal store that did not have much selection or very good customer service. Judy's store definitely was a 5 star store and beyond!Sent on 06/03/2019

Uncommon service and kindness. Judy and her husband are so welcoming and endearing. My daughter and I were shopping for a NCL Senior Recognition dress, thankfully Judy knew all about NCL and our dress guidelines. My daughter found her perfect dress, one of a kind, and even in our budget. Judy and her husband are wonderful. Judy is so helpful and accessible by cell phone 7 days a week! So thankful we found them. I highly recommend Bridal Gowns of Orange County!

I can’t even express how great this store and Judy are! This was my first bridal store and I bought my 3rd dress I tried on!! I had an idea of what I wanted and Judy was fantastic and quick picking out dresses that matched my style. So so helpful especially because it can be a tad overwhelming seeing all the dresses. Great prices, customer service and dress options!Sent on 06/28/2019

Let me start by saying that I NEVER write reviews, but Bridal Gowns Orange County was so amazing that I just had to write one for this shop!
The shop has TONS of gorgeous dresses for a large variety of styles and visions however more than anything, I can't say enough about how amazing the atmosphere and customer service was. Judy and her Husband John truly made me feel so special and valued, and not like I was just another bride on their list of appointments like some dress shops can do.
This past weekend my mom was in town for a short 4 day trip to do some gown shopping with me. I never dreamed I would have so much trouble finding the dress I wanted, and after 2 very discouraging days and 100+ dresses later, I found Bridal Gowns Orange County on Yelp. I immediately contacted them late on a Saturday night, although I had low expectations that there would be any way they would get back to me in time, much less be able to fit me in for an appt while my mom was still in town. Not only did Judy get back to me the following morning (a Sunday when they are supposed to be closed), she was able to fit me in for an appointment the following day while my mom was still in town!
Fast forward to the appointment itself, Judy and her Husband John truly made the appointment one of a kind, and a very special memory for my mom and I. They were incredibly caring, spent time listening to what I had envisioned and made me feel that they truly wanted me to find the perfect dress for me, and not just make a sale. I left the appointment with the feeling that I had found the dress, but had a few more dress appointments to go to that day, so did not purchase at that time. When I got home that evening after all of the appointments I knew that I wanted to go back to Bridal Gowns Orange County, the only problem was that it was 8 pm and my mom was leaving on a flight the next morning. Judy and John had already encouraged me to reach out anytime if I needed anything, so I took a chance and contacted them late Monday night. Not only did they get back to me right away, they came in early before the shop opened the following morning so I could try on the dress one more time and "say yes to the dress" with my mom there with me.
I highly recommend Bridal Gowns Orange County! The dresses they have are unique and gorgeous, and it's clear how much Judy and John sincerely care about each of the brides they work with and how invested they are in making sure each bride finds the dress that makes them feel the most beautiful.Sent on 02/13/2020

What a wonderful place! Owners are so kind!
I had the best experience at Bridal Gowns Orange County! I sent a message through Yelp about making an appointment, and Judy called me the next morning about making an appointment and what I was looking for. I was also able to text her photos ahead of time of what I was thinking, so we all had a great idea of the look I was going for, even before my appointment. Once there, Judy and her husband selected a handful of gowns for me, that were all stunning! The best part is we were able to customize the gown I ended up going with (adding embellished sleeves, cups, sweetheart neckline, etc.). She referred me to an alterations seamstress just down the street, who was also wonderful!!! This was the best experience, wonderful selection of gowns! Wish I started off my search here!Sent on 03/14/2020

Judy is the best!!!
Judy and her husband are the sweetest people ever! I wouldn’t have wanted to buy my wedding dress from anyone else! She genuinely wanted to help me find “the one” but in a very relaxed and casual atmosphere. I loved the personalized welcome sign when we walked in and of course, the “I said Yes to the Dress” sign at the end. I also appreciated all her guidance and advice. I found the perfect dress! Thank you, Judy!!!!Sent on 03/11/2019
