"First, a few clarifying statements!
One, I am not getting married, going to a prom or quinceanera! I ended up in this shop because I'm to be the father-in-law to the bride and well, she wanted my opinion.
Needless to say I've rarely spent time in a store like this. I can't get over the number of people who flock here much less the number of dresses, styles, patterns, and prices! It's like shopping for a car but you have to drive or rather dress in all these clothes in order to find what works best.
We must have spent a good hour and half going through dresses and I have to admit, Blossoms Bridal& Formal has a fine, fine selection! Who knew? I mean, years ago, wasn't this a David's Bridal shop?
Customer service was spot on as the person who helped us (Good night I wish I knew her name) was kind, knowledgeable and professional. She even told us that we were a half hour near closing time but kept right on working with us.
In the end, I believe we found the dress we were looking for, an accomplishment of epic proportions! Should I even need a dress...no, wait, should anyone need a dress for a formal occasion, this is a top spot in the Bay Area!"
- R.C. (February, 2019)
"Amazing customer service! Katie helped me find my wedding dress. She was so prompt to pick dresses that fit the description of what I was looking for. I am so excited to see my wedding dress in 6 months!"
- K.C. (December, 2018)
"I found my bridesmaids' dresses and bridal veil here. From the beginning, Katie, the owner, was very helpful, and really catered to our specific needs. We were even given a discount because we purchased the dresses together, all at once. Katie was great at finding the right sizes and styles for us. Katie was excellent at communication, and I would recommend Blossoms for anyone looking for a bridesmaid or prom dress. Their selection is amazing!"
K.C (November, 2018)
"I purchased my wedding dress from Blossoms and had extensive alterations done with no problems. My dress came out so beautiful due to the detailed and careful work of their in-house seamstress. She would also help me feel at ease by making suggestions on how to alter the dress while still keeping the beautiful shape and design. I loved their seamstress so much! The staff was very kind every time i came to the store. Highly reccomend Blossoms for any formal wear!"
-C.H. (October, 2018)
"I live in NC but wanted to look for a wedding gown while I was visiting my mom in CA. Blossoms had tons of dresses to choose from in my price range of $900-$1300. I was helped one-on-one and even given my own private suite for trying on dresses. Staff was really non-judgmental about my choice to have my fiance help me pick out dresses, and when I asked them about suits for my gay bridesmaid. The lady who helped us was super quick about picking dresses I liked, and having veils/belts/earrings/whatever ready in a jiffy. Even better, when I said yes to the dress, they honored my fiance with a military discount, and was able to ship my dress all the way to my doorstep in NC! They never once pressured me out of budget. Now I am buying my bridesmaids dresses there too on discount, and all my bridesmaids have to do is call and give measurements and a card number over the phone, and their dresses will be at their doors in MI and WI too!
This place deserves 6 stars for kindness, adaptability, and bang for its buck. I would recommend anyone for wants to feel special when picking out their dress to visit Blossoms.
PS-My sister got the most glam!!! prom dress here too! Love it!"
- Vanessa (October 2018)
"This is, by far, the best bridal dress shop I've been to in the Bay Area! Katy, the owner, was very helpful from the minute we walked in. She knew exactly what type of wedding dress I wanted and let me try as many dresses as possible. AND they have sooooo many dresses to choose from! It's like dress heaven. Although I didn't say yes to the dress, I will be going back to try on more dresses!"
-P.D. (September, 2018)
"This place is a treasure! If you're looking for a wedding dress, prom dress, bridesmaid dress (like I was for my daughter) this is an absolute go-to. Kathy, the owner, was incredibly helpful and very knowledgeable about brands, styles, etc. She has an in-house seamstress that takes care of all fitting details and has a great selection. I highly recommend Blossoms. We had a great experience!"
-J.P. (July, 2018)
"Blossoms is my life saver! I was invited to a black tie wedding and absolutely fell in love with a Jovani dress. I did not order it though Blossoms, and when it arrived, it was not the correct dress. I received it in the mail on a Monday, and the Saturday of that same week was the wedding. Apparently this dress had a short train or a long train. I was looking for the long train. I remembered Blossoms because I had purchased a few dresses from them years ago for my proms. I called the store and Jessica took my call. I explained the situation, and she truly calmed my nerves. She immediately began to help me. She called Jovani to see if the dress was in stock and quickly called me back. We ordered the dress with 3 day delivery. She was the sweetest person to talk to and I could tell that she truly cared about the dress I wanted for this event. She honestly made the experience wonderful, and she is an absolute asset to their business. Blossoms has wonder customer service."
-S.K. (November 2017)
"I had the greatest experience here ever! I recently competed in Miss Contra Costa County's Outstanding Teen and wore one of Blossom's dresses. They helped me find the perfect figure-flattering dress. Even when I needed alterations the night before, they did them for the same price offered. Katie is so sweet and will make sure that you leave happy! The dress she helped me find was within my price-range and helped me win my title! Thank you Blossoms!"
-Olivia S. (November 2017)
"After going through four different malls looking for the "perfect" dress, I thought I would try just one last place--Blossoms--before I calling it quits and boy, was I glad that I did! From the moment I walked in I was greeted with kindness and reassured that I had come to the right place. Meeting the manager, I was sure I had found my real-life fairy godmother, she pulled out beautiful dresses for me to try on, all the while being mindful of my budget. Christine, was more than kind and helped me decide which dress was best. The tailor, too, was as sweet as can be and gave me great advice on what adjustments to make. I couldn't believe how much they genuinely wanted me to look and feel my best. I truly felt like they were all as excited for my special day as I was and I just fell in love with the store, the service and yes, that perfect, fits-me-like-a-glove dress! I am writing this so anyone else out there looking for that special dress can have the same wonderful experience I did."
-Emily F. (October 2017)
"After many months searching for my wedding dress I found this store online, I am so happy I found it, they have the most beautiful dresses, great service! Lola helped me twice, she is lovely and patient. I got to meet Katie also, she is very friendly. Great experience overall."
-Francielle B. (October 2017)
"I love this store! First of all, there is a huge selection of dresses and sizes in store and online. There are also tons of gowns constantly going on sale, so you get them for a great price. The staff is wonderful and I got attention and help from the store owner Katie and a few more of the ladies working there. Also, I myself purchased a dress and needed some alterations to get it sized down (I lost weight) just a few days before my event. In under a week Van had my dress fitting perfectly, even better than it had fit prior to my weight loss! Getting a new dress would have been so expensive and the alterations at my usual would have been almost half the cost of the dress, but they quoted the alterations so much cheaper than my usual seamstress and it was done flawlessly. I got so many compliments, and I referred them all to this wonderful store. Will definitely be coming back!!"
- Mikayla B. (October 2017)
"Blossoms Bridal was great to work with, they had great prices and Katie was wonderful! We got all of our tuxedos and Mori Lee bridesmaid dresses from here. They had a great selection of bridesmaid dresses for the girls to try on. Everything turned out great, see pics!"
-Michelle L. (September 2017)
"Christine was absolutely amazing! I went in to Blossom's looking for my wedding dress, feeling a bit bewildered from previous experiences. However, Christine greeted me with a friendly smile and listened to what I was hoping to find. The very first dress she pulled for me was the one. I didn't believe in the bridal moment (tears of joy when you try on your dress for the first time)...until I slipped into my gown. Christine worked with me from the first time I saw the dress, until the day I had my last fitting and took my dress home with me. I am so grateful. Wonderful experience and superior service (even when they are extremely busy with prom season). Thank you for making me feel special, and for making our big day even more memorable with the perfect dress!"
-Victoria M. (September 2017)
"My experience with Katie (the owner) was nothing short of incredible. In my area, there is only one retail store that sells the brand of my "dream dress," at extremely high marked-up prices. To my surprise, I found that Blossoms Bridal was advertising the dress I wanted for less than a third of retail. I discovered of course that it was a stock dress sale, and unfortunately the staff had accidentally advertised the wrong dress (similar but not the same). When I contacted Katie, as it was their mistake, she did her best to contact the original designer and actually got them to make the correct dress in a discontinued shade especially because I requested it. I ended up paying less than 2/3 of the price I would have been charged locally, and Katie threw in free 2-day shipping as well. Not only did I receive the RIGHT dress, in the RIGHT size, in the RIGHT shade, with the RIGHT hemming, I got it fast (ordered mid-May) and per Katie's estimate (that it would arrive in 3 months, around mid-August) with time to spare for some minor alterations that I will have done locally. Katie, despite her busy travel schedule, has been consistent in returning my text messages, with prompt emails from the store when I changed my invoice requests. I also got a prompt email when the dress arrived at the store; and Ian in the local store handling online orders was also super polite on the phone and added on last-minute insurance coverage for the last shipment to me for my peace of mind.

"I came here with my friend who was looking for a mother of the bride dress. We did not have an appointment but the staff was very accommodating. They have a pretty good selection of dresses."
-Sheree C. (July 2017)
"This place is seriously as good as it gets! The service is outstanding, and the selection is even better. ONE week before my wedding i decided that i HATED the wedding dress that i currently had. I was in a desperate state and needed a new dress ASAP. Christine helped me find the dress of my dreams within one hour of being there and Van stopped everything she was doing to alter my dress. The alteration was done in two days, yes TWO days....AMAZING.
As for the rest of the staff, everyone is very warm and friendly. I will definitely be recommending Blossoms to friends for their future wedding attire."
- Amanda M. (June 2017)
"I absolutely love this place. It is very well organized, has amazing service, and there is a wide selection of dresses. I will be coming back in the future!"
- Carly B. (May 2017)
"We purchased my daughter's prom dress in March and received the best service from Mikayla Borromeo. She helped us through the entire process. We had an idea in mind and a price range and she picked out many beautiful dressses for my daughter to try on. Within two hours she found the perfect dress. Mikayla placed our order and set up our alteration appointment. We received personal attention from Mikayla and that made our day shopping, one to remember."
- Jennifer A. (May 2017)
"I went to Blossoms one week before a formal gala event and found the PERFECT dress! In addition to getting "the" dress, the service I received from Katie and Sophie was top notch. Katie is flexible and caring which is hard to find out there when shopping for a special occasion. Katie went above and beyond to complete alterations within a short time frame. When you care about wearing an original and not showing up at an event with someone else wearing your dress, you MUST check out BLOSSOMS!"
- Icie W. (May 2017)
"I bought 5 dresses at this place for my wedding. Katie helped me a lot in many ways. The price was so reasonable and did a excellent job on alterations too. I definitely recommend this place! I loved it! Thank you so much Katie!!!"
- Christine M. (May 2017)
"I went to Blossoms to buy a dress for prom and I was impressed by the wide selection of dresses and the kind employees that worked there!...A few weeks later, I came back to Blossoms for alterations and I was definitely not disappointed!... Katie was very efficient when measuring how much my dress had to be hemmed, and the price was definitely more reasonable than the place I went to before.
Overall, I had a great experience and I'll definitely be coming here again!"
- Rachael T. (April 2017)
"We have used Blossom's to buy a dress for my daughter's Prom and now this year, for her Senior Ball. They have a gorgeous selection of dresses and a staff that goes above and beyond. Their staff (we were lucky to work with Christine) goes through the racks looking for a dress they know you might have passed by but they know will end up being amazing! My daughter made several visits without me and then with me. She tried on so many dresses. Christine was so patient and accommodating. Then finally, she found us the most gorgeous dress that suits my daughter perfectly in every way! They provide the alterations making it a one stop shop and they also make note of your school and the dress you are wearing so no two girls will show up wearing the same thing. It's an added touch that leaves you with one less thing to worry about.. So we've have had two years with two perfect dresses!! I highly recommend going to Blossom's for any of your formal or bridal wear needs! Stellar service and beautiful garments!!'
- Nicole M. (April 2017)
"The staff at Blossoms is very helpful and the owner, Katie, is extremely customer service oriented. We bought my daughter's prom dresses for the last two years from Blossoms and will go there next year too. Katie has made sure that the dresses fit perfectly! There us a great selection of dresses also."
- Dani T. (April 2017)
"I am very impressed and satisfied with the service here at Blossoms. My daughter was looking for a prom dress last week. The staff took the time and had patience to bring us several dresses. Katie was amazing and allowed me to return/exchange one dress for another. I highly recommend this shop for any special occasion dress. Again, I would like to thank Katie for her exceptional service and understanding towards our needs. This is our second purchase at Blossoms and we highly recommend this store and we will be back again. Thanks again Katie!"
- Rita S. (April 2017)

- Tatiana S. (April 2017)
"I am in love with Blossoms and am so thankful for Katie and her staff who were very helpful and went the extra mile to make sure my daughter found the dress of her dreams for her Sweet Sixteen party.

- Stacie C. (February 2017)
"...Very large selection. We were met by Mikayla. She was very sweet and welcoming. My daughter showed her pictures of what she had in mind. Mikayla asked if we would also be open to some of her suggestions. We were... Mikayla and all the other employees there were very helpful and so knowledgeable. Mikayla is so patient.

I will come here again!"

Made me wish I was going to prom again. Definitely recommend."
