    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!

    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 !

    Excellent!

    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!

    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!!!!

    Amazing Selection and Prices! So happy with my wedding dress!

    Judy is awesome! She was so attentive to me and very responsive and flexible with my appointments. She has an amazing selection of dresses. I enjoyed trying many on, even though I got lucky and fell in love with the first dress I tried on. I never once felt pressured to buy. I am so so happy with my purchase. Do like I did and SAY YES TO THE DRESS here!

    We were in search of 2 lilac junior bridesmaids dresses and since it's a spring color and we're moving into fall, it's been very difficult. Judy was wonderful! We found 2 beautiful dresses and the price for each was fantastic. We will be back. Judy, it was a pleasure doing business with you!

    The perfect dress

    This was the very first store I went to when I started by bridal gown search. I left the store with a few dresses in mind that I really really liked. I kept getting advice from people saying to try on more dresses because one you make the purchase there's no going back. So after trying on 20+ dresses at other stores in the area I ended up purchasing the very first dress I ever tried on at Judy's store. The dress is absolutely gorgeous and Judy gave me an amazing deal on it. She worked with my budget to throw in as much as possible (veil, alterations, layaway) so I wouldn't have to worry about any of these things as the big day approached. I am very happy with my decision to purchase a dress from OC Bridal gowns and I cannot wait for the big day!! I would recommend any future bride to browse through this store at least once when they begin the dress shopping process. Thanks Judy!!!

    A fairy tale moment

    Judy is fabulous! I’m 6.1 so finding dresses that would be long enough for me has always been a struggle. I also had an idea of what I wanted but I was unsure because I needed the dress to match a neckless that has my Dad’s ashes in it. Well Judy was fabulous and helped me find the perfect dress that made me feel like a bride. I loved that I was the only one in the store as well. It was a fantastic experience.

    Judy was awesome!! I went in dreading the dress shipping since I only had 2.5 weeks to get a dress. I found one I really liked but didn’t think I could afford it. Judy surprised me with the cost, it was in my budget. I then went and get the alterations and they did a rush job. I had a dress and the process was better than I expected.

    I said "YES TO THE DRESS" at Bridal Gowns OC! Judy is the woman to talk to when it comes to bridal gowns and accessories. I just walked in and needed a wedding dress VERY last minute and she was so accommodating and very helpful. She worked with my budget and knew what I would be looking for. I found my absolute dream dress and I just knew it was the one. I would definitely recommend this place to any bride because Judy is the most genuine and absolute best, she will make you look and feel so beautiful!

    What a blessing it was for me to find Bridal Gowns Orange County and Judy!! I was impressed by all the positive reviews on Yelp and I couldn't of had a better experience. We spoke on the phone and I described what I was looking for and Judy asked me to send her a few pics. When I arrived for my appointment, she already had some dresses picked out for me and it was actually the first dress that I said YES too!!! The shop is filled with so many beautiful dresses, its a gem of bridal studio and Judy helps to make your experience extra special because she truly cares about you and wants to make sure you look and feel beautiful on your special day. I highly recommend anyone looking for that special dress to call Judy and visit Bridal Gowns Orange County!!!
