    Beautiful Alterations Work!!

    When I first picked up my dress from the Bridal Salon and tried it on, I panicked! It was too big and I thought there was no way it would ever fit right. I took the dress to Naomi at Margaret's and knew instantly that I had made the right choice! Naiomi is wonderful, friendly, and does incredible work!! My dress looked amazing, and they even packaged it to keep it perfectly safe for our cross-country flight.

    Naomi from Margaret’s is AMAZING

    I was supposed to have my wedding Memorial Day weekend but it was postponed due to COVID. In a random roller coaster of events, I found myself in a position to still get married in my parents’ backyard (with just my parents, brother, and sister-in-law) on our original wedding date. By no means was having my dress necessary, but Naomi was able to work with me to finish my dress, and it turned out beautifully. Even under these crazy circumstances, she was able to finish my dress quickly and it came out better than I could have imagined. Can’t recommend her enough. She is so easy to work with, has lovely design ideas, and she was able to seamlessly incorporate the lace from my mom’s dress into my own.

    Great experience!

    It was so great to work with Naomi of Margaret's Bridal department. She was so helpful and the process was so easy - not stressful at all! I needed the length and shoulder straps adjusted. Naomi suggested other alterations as well to make it the perfect fit. My dress turned out beautiful!

    Naomi is the best!

    I absolutely loved working with Naomi! She was a true professional when it came to handling wedding dresses, and she was also super responsive and willing to tailor to my exact needs. She was super friendly too which made all the fittings that much more pleasant. Definitely recommend Margaret's to any bride!

    Naomi is a miracle worker!

    I had a wonderful experience with Naomi! She did my wedding dress for my 10/26/19 wedding and I could not have been more pleased with how the dress turned out. It needed all the usual - bustle, hemming, taking in at the sides, but what really showed her skill was what she did to the front of my dress.
    I tried on my dress in the store in May and fell in love. I waited 2 months for my dress to arrive and when it did... it wasn't the same dress. All the details on the top were different. The one I tried on in store was very flattering to my figure, this one was blah.
    I got estimates from several seamstresses that either quoted me my first born child or tried to convince me that the dresses were the same and no changes were needed. When I went to Naomi, I knew right away that she was the person for me. She listened to what my issues were, she asked to see pictures of both dresses, and she even had me text her the photos so she could do her best to create the original look.
    She did all that and more. The dress looked better than I could have ever imagined. In addition to her undeniable talent, Naomi was fun to chat with, easy to schedule with, and always made me feel excited for my big day without being over the top.
    Definitely go with Margaret's Cleaners and Naomi for your wedding! You will not be disappointed!!

    One easy decision in a wedding planning!

    Working with the staff at Margaret's Cleaner and Naomi was the second best decision I made in regard to the wedding. 1st of course was saying yes to my husband.
    The entire was staff was delightful and encouraging with the jitters that come with altering a dress bought sight unseen online.
    Naomi was able to design my dress from a vision I described to her.
    She was like the fairy godmother for Cinderella. Bippity Boppity Boop and my dream dress was created!

    Restoration at its Finest!!

    The entire team of Margaret's from cleaning to restoring to alterations was beyond perfect. The dress looked amazing. Originally worn in 1957, then 1983 and 1986. Looked amazing with all the restorations in 2019.

    A Dream Come True!

    My wedding was on December 7, 2018. Sometime in January 2018 I had the very good fortune of running into Margaret's cleaners and their fabulous ladies at the San Diego Wedding Expo. I had my mom's dress from when she got married over 30 years ago. She was quite thin and I have some extra love handles, lol I was debating on whether to use my mom's dress or buy a new one because I was skeptical that it wouldn't be or look like my dream dress and I didn't want to ruin my mom's dress. The dress was pretty heavily 80's to include the huge puffy arm ruffles. So I stopped by Margaret's Cleaners booth and spoke to Naomi Miller and she showed me some of her before/after dresses she had worked on. It was impressive enough to get me to go in to their shop for a consultation with my dress. We went over every detail I wanted done, Naomi took every single idea of mine and turned it into a masterpiece. She would advise where my ideas needed to be tweaked and why it needed to be tweaked but never once did she ever make me feel like my ideas were weird instead she would show enthusiasm for them. She has the patience of a God as I had many different changes and she would smile and be excited for them. Naomi did not have an easy job as I went in with my mom and my aunt and we were all very opinionated, LOL Naomi was so accommodating, respectful and a true professional. The end result was me in happy tears and Naomi joined me in my tearful joy. When I tell you that this girl pours her heart and soul into making your vision come to life, it's an understatement. The best part is that it was ridiculously affordable. The final dress came in an amazing package that looked like i had just gone to purchase the dress at a super expensive store. In closing, Naomi Miller from Margaret's cleaners is nothing short of a miracle worker, her skills are unparalleled, she treats her customers like family/friend and she is the sweetest person I've ever met, so much so, we still keep in touch today.

    Wedding Dress of my Dreams!

    Naomi did an amazing job with the alterations on my dress. I had so many people tell me no they couldn’t do what I was asking for and Naomi made it happen without any hesitation. I initially purchased my dress as a strapless. I wanted to add a halter top made out of lace. The biggest trouble we had was sourcing the lace and Naomi took care of everything. She found the lace, met with me 3 times for fitting and finished my dream dress! Not only did she add the topper, she also added buttons to the back, added a belt and bustle. I would trust Naomi to do all my alterations. Everything turned out so great, without any hassle and wonderful customer service. Thank you Naomi for making the dress of my dreams :)

    I took my mom’s 63 year old dress in to be cleaned for my daughters wedding. It has been worn 8 times, by my mom, my sisters, my niece, and myself. It is a family heirloom that was in sad shape. It was yellowed and the lace was very worn in places, the buttons were also worn. I couldn’t believe how beautiful it was when I got it back. They even saved the buttons they took off, so I could make some keepsakes with them. Thank you Amy and your team! My daughter looks so beautiful in the dress!

    great service

    I had my wedding dress pressed here before my wedding day. Margaret's was recommended by both my wedding planner and venue. They both said they were the only cleaners they would trust with a wedding gown. They were timely and professional. I can see why they come so highly recommended.

    Fantastic!

    From the first appointment, Naomi took great care to make sure my dress was tailored to fit well with my choice of wedding shoes (white converse) and ensured to take the dress in enough. Her work was phenomenal, and I couldn’t be happier with how my dress turned out! It fit perfectly! I would recommend her to anyone needing alterations! Thank you again!

    Hidden Gem- Naomi has some serious talent!

    I met Naomi at a bridal show and she saw a picture of my dress and was as excited to alter it as I was to wear it. I was sold! I loved working with Naomi. She's very kind, welcoming and warm and she makes you feel like the only bride she has when you're in your fitting. I do have one word of advice- Listen to Naomi when she tells you to hang out in your dress a little. Sit down in your dress. Bend over in your dress. Give her a hug in your dress. Do a little jig in your dress. Do ALL the things you think you may do during the wedding because the fit of your dress changes as you move. I did not follow her advice and my dress ended up being too large on top (my fault). Naomi is an expert and the amount of schooling she has been to backs that up. She also creates wedding dresses from scratch if you like. Overall, go see Naomi. She's the real deal and will be sure to make your dress fit like a glove (if you listen to her). Love Naomi- love Margarets. Highly recommend them!

    I took my wedding gown and veil to Margaret's to be pressed for a post-wedding photo shoot. I chose Margaret's for its excellent reputation in the bridal industry. I was very impressed with the quality of their work, as my dress looked like new when I picked it up! Margaret's had packaged my dress and delicate veil very nicely to ensure they stayed wrinkle-free, and I could tell they were both handled with great care. I will definitely return to Margaret's for their services in the future as I know my clothes will be in good hands.

    Naomi Naomi Naomi! There are not enough words to thank you enough for the work you put into my wedding dress! My wedding dress was a 2 piece dress, long train satin skirt over a lace cocktail dress. I fell in love with the idea of having a surprise father-daughter dance where I would twirl and rip off my skirt to reveal my cocktail dress underneath and then break out into free dance with my dad before the guests joined in on the dance floor. To make this happen, my skirt had to be hemmed and bustled and extra clasps added to the top of the skirt to ensure a smooth reveal. My cocktail dress also had to be taken in around the bust, waist, and hips. Naomi worked her magic and the skirt held up throughout the ceremony and reception and came off effortlessly when it was time for the big surprise. Naomi was so patient with me and my mom as we discussed what we wanted with the dress and options and ideas on how to make the dress fit better without breaking the bank, like adding $15-20 bra cups to the dress to avoid having to deal with any bras or bra straps in general! I believe the prices at Margarets is definitely reasonable for the amount of time and effort Naomi puts into all her alterations. All in all my alterations came out to $520, but if you spend over $500 in alterations you get a free pressing before your wedding (a $220 value for my 2 piece dress). Honestly I thought pressing dresses before the wedding was maybe an expense I could cut, but thankfully I did not (and mine was included with my alteration) because pressing really does make a difference! Super happy with the service and workmanship at Margarets and will highly recommend Naomi to future brides!

    The amount that David's wanted to charge me wasn't much cheaper than what Margaret's Cleaners was going to charge me for alterations of my gown. However, I know the quality of work will be higher because only one person will be altering my gown, and it's the person who consulted with me during my initial visit. For that quality customer service, I'm definitely willing to spend a few more dollars.
