I chose Tour of Elegance for the wide variety of designers. If the lady had been nicer, I probably would have bought one of her dresses. Instead, she made me feel like I was wasting her time. Instead of focusing on the fact that I liked every single dress I tried on, she seemed angry that I didn't pick one of the first 3. Then she kept telling me that I should have gone elsewhere first because I obviously didn't know what I wanted (um... not true, I liked them all!) It was a big disappointment since my mom had flown into town just for that weekend. Next I went to Desert Bride in Indio (2.5hrs away) and it was well worth the drive!

I went looking for bridesmaids dresses and found this small little store and I was really excited because it seemed they had a great selection. When I got there she was extremely rude and critical that I had already bought my dress from another location (which was out of state!) and not from her store and was appalled that I had considered buying online and told me that I should know better than that. (like she's my mother) I told her that I needed bridesmaid dresses and immediately found the one that I liked but I wanted to have my girls try them on first. She made me feel like I needed to buy them right that second and not wait and there was no way that I would get a good price on the dress because it was a new style and she smirked at me for even asking. Even still, I sent my maid of honor there to try on the dress to see if she liked it and she said the same things...she was rude, unfriendly, and made her feel like she needed to buy the dress right that minute becuase she was wasting her time. I recommend you find somewhere else to shop.

I visited here last week and immediately felt a lot of pressure. Sandra made me feel like I had to order my dress that day, and only from her. I also found her unprofessional in that she was openly critical of competing bridal shops. I enjoyed my time at two other shops much more.

Sandra was my last stop out of about 6 other shops. I should have come here first! She had an amazing selection and I was able to try on about a half dozen Maggie Sottero dresses that I really liked. Sandra helped me narrow things down quickly and the "the one" at a really reasonable price. She made my experience fun and relaxing and the personalized service she gave really made me feel special.

This is a one stop shop for brides, dresses for the bride, the maids, tuxes and even planning...just what ever bride needs! She is on top of details and tons of fun!
