  • Do yourself a favor and book an appointment immediately! I had the SWEETEST staff helping me, and I had never felt more beautiful. Before I begin, I’d like to say I have been all over San Diego in search for the perfect dress for months! I had found things I liked, but still hadn’t found the “one”. The second I walked into Archive, I knew it was my place! The dresses are stunning, affordable, and the staff is warm and inviting. I worked with Crystal, and let me tell you, she is phenomenal! She was the BEST with my family and bridesmaids I came with, and saw my vision and understood what looked good on my body immediately. She actually was the one who chose my “one”!!! The moment we knew it was it, we came out with the veil and everyone clapped and I truly felt like they genuinely cared about our experience. Crystal, I can’t thank you enough for making my bridal dreams come true. You stayed in my budget, and found me the most jaw-dropping gown imaginable!! Do yourself a fa... Read more

  • These ladies were so fun to work with. Tracy helped me choose my dress and she has such great taste. Like most brides, my saved pictures of dresses I thought I wanted did not end up being what I fell in love with in person. She chose a dress I didn't think I would like, but she knew would look great and she was absolutely right! Working with the rest of the team through the fittings was a pleasure as well. I had asked if the dress could be altered in way that could be re-altered if I have daughters that choose to wear my dress for their own wedding day and they made that happen, no problem. Another thing to note is that this whole experience still felt so special even while following regulations for covid. It's a shame that I'll only ever need a wedding dress once in my life because they made my dress shopping experience so fun that I want to do it again! I know exactly where to send my friends and family.

  • Archive bridal is your one stop shop! They have beautiful gowns, an inhouse seamstress, wedding day accessories, and aftercare service to preserve your gown and veil. Plus, they have the friendliest staff that really wants to make sure your gown is perfect for your big day. I found my dress almost a year before my wedding date and on the day of the wedding my dress looked and fit perfectly. Thank you Archive Bridal for all that you did to make me feel beautiful and confident on my big day.

  • After going to four cities and approximately 15 bridal shops when my sister was getting married I was dreading dress shopping. I made a bunch of appointments but I started at Archive. Upon walking in, Crystal greeted us and was so warm and friendly I immediately relaxed. We talked about what I was looking for in a dress (something simple and classic) and my budget. She selected a few options and we got started. Crystal NAILED what I was looking for. Literally the first dress I tried on was my dream dress! We tried on additional dresses to make sure it was the one. Archive has a very wide range of dresses—from the simple dress I was looking for to the lacy ball gowns to sexy silhouettes—they have everything you’re looking for. The dress I picked out had been part of a recent trunk show and Archive was kind enough to honor the trunk show pricing. I canceled the rest of my appointments! I loved working with Archive—Crystal helped me pick out hair accessories, undergarments and get... Read more

  • This review is long overdue! I have had the BEST experience at Archive Bridal from the start with Tracy as my consultant. She really listened to what I said I wanted in a wedding dress, and found me the perfect dress right away! I loved that she didn't try to push me to try on things outside my comfort zone or talk me into something that wasn't my vision for my big day. Everything she suggested was exactly what I had envisioned! Tracy (and the other girls) could not have made me (and my mom and sister) feel more welcome or comfortable! Tracy even sent me the sweetest thank you note after I bought my dress - customer service does not get better than that! Since buying my dress, the whole team at Archive Bridal has been so patient with me as I've made alterations and truly has gone above and beyond to work with me to make sure I feel my best on my wedding day. The whole experience has exceeded my expectations and I am so thankful that dress shopping was one less thing I had to worry ... Read more

  • We walked into Archive Bridal not expecting to find a dress, but within hours had found the wedding dress of my dreams! Tracy was phenomenal to work with, had such valuable insight throughout the process, and truly listened to what I was looking for (within our price range). My mom and I both agreed it was one of our favorite parts of the planning process. I also had custom tulle straps added to the dress at Tracy's suggestion and it totally pulled the look together. I cannot recommend Archive more highly!

  • Every aspect of my experience at Archive Bridal was incredible. First, the amazing selection of gowns in a variety of styles and price points is wonderful. Couple that with a staff that listens to your needs and are both helpful and knowledgable, it is a great experience all around. Finally, Paulette and her team offer the best tailoring you could ever find. My dress looked like it was painted on me - I got countless compliments on the dress both on my wedding day and after when more people saw pictures. I cannot recommend Archive Bridal enough!

  • Paulette was awesome! She determined the style that I liked and pointed me in the right direction, pulling styles of that kind for me to try. I changed my mind back and forth several times. She just kept on putting me in or back into the dresses I wanted to try. She has a very clean store, it is family owned. She is very pleasant to work with, as well as fun and personable. Thank you Paulette for helping me find the perfect dress!

  • I found my PERFECT wedding gown at ARCHIVE Bridal. Their selection of wedding dresses is top notch and the shop is adorable. The whole staff is so nice and I'd recommend anyone to check them out to find their dress for their BIG day. I'll definitely be recommending them to all my gals moving forward. I wish I could wear my Pronovias gown over and over again :)

  • I literally cannot say enough amazing things about Archive. THE BEST BRIDAL STORE EVERRR!!! Not only are the dresses at the store the most incredible dresses I've ever laid eyes on, but the customer service is bar none the best in the business. First off, Archive Bridal is the just the most beautiful bridal store. Immediately when I walked in I fell in love! Dripping with class and beauty as each gown hangs perfectly next to an equally gorgeous gown. The ladies at the store make you feel like you are the most important person in the world the second you walk in. Cat my bridal consultant totally understood my vision and every dress she picked was incredible! She was so patient, kind and completely understanding of the style I wanted. I said yes to my dress in back in July on National Bridal Sale day (I'm a gal who loves a good deal). I knew I always wanted to go to Archive as I had read and heard so many wonderful things about them. Let me tell you, they exceeded every ... Read more

  • I had such a wonderful experience at Archive Bridal. The salon is absolutely beautiful – very glamorous and clean – and everyone was so nice. I had been to several salons already and tried on too many gowns in search of the perfect dress, but had not yet felt convinced enough to commit to one. Ironically, Archive Bridal did not carry the Allure gown I eventually decided on, but thankfully they could order it for me. I had such a wonderful experience there that I preferred to order my gown through them than from the salon where I had originally tried it on. They were very helpful and communicative throughout the process of ordering the gown. They do alterations as well, so that was awesomely convenient. I worked with Paulette in alterations and she was just the best! There were many small (but important!) adjustments that needed to be made to my gown, and her work was meticulous. She even took the time to sew in a swatch of lace from my grandmother's wedding gown. I am so happy with... Read more

  • What an outstanding bridal salon!! Although I did not choose my wedding dress from Archive it was my second choice and I would have absolutely been thrilled with the choice. Crystal was the sales associate I worked with during the process and she was excellent. Very professional and easy to communicate with through the whole process. The salon was the nicest one I went into out of visiting several shops, would highly recommend when finding your dream dress.
