  • The owner has been in the business for a very long time and really knows what she is doing. Any time I tried on a dress and said "I like this but I wish it had this or didn't have this" she would pull out exactly what I was searching for. It was an amazing experience. She was great with her communication and flexibility also. 10/10 would recommend. Not the champagne in hand experience or a boogie feeling shop but it was just perfect.

  • I found my wedding gown here, and I absolutely loved it! Georgette was so helpful and so knowledgeable about wedding gowns. Alterations were a breeze, and my dress fit perfectly on the big day!

  • I found my dream dress at Papers & Petals! Georgette was wonderful from start to finish and I couldn't have asked for a more perfect, beautiful gown. I felt incredible in my dress on my big day and everyone was blown away by it. I had never seen anything like it before and am so glad Georgette found it for me.

  • I can’t say enough good things about the ladies at Papers and Petals. When we first arrived, I thought I had already found my dress, but once I came in and described what I was looking for, it was evident that the dress I had found was NOT “the one.” Georgette has an amazing eye for style and personality, and the first dress she put on me was the perfect dress and the one I ultimately purchased. All the fittings also were extremely smooth – the staff was very professional and talented, and they were able to make the small alterations I wanted to the dress. The whole team always had my best interest at heart and was always honest and helpful with us. From a personnel standpoint, I feel that Papers and Petals cannot be beat. Georgette has hired a lovely group that is friendly, kind, supportive, and just fun to be around. All of my bridesmaids, my mom, and myself all had so much fun every time we went to the shop and walked out laughing. Georgette and her team felt like family ... Read more

  • Georgette and the whole team at Papers and Petals were absolutely amazing to work with. Georgette was able to read my style to a T, getting me into the dress of my dreams within minutes of my appointment. She was thorough, thoughtful and ensured that I was happy every step of the way. I can't recommend her expertise and quality enough when it comes to making such an important investment.

  • After visiting 3 other salons, I pretty much had an idea of what I wanted in a dress. When I came to Paper and Petals, I described what I was looking for and after only 3 tries, Georgette found The Dress! I had 100% of her attention during my appointment and I liked that she pulled the dresses for me (otherwise I might have been overwhelmed by the selection). I got fitted for alterations only once and voila.... it came out perfect! Received many complements on the dress from family and friends but what mattered most of all is that my husband loved it!

    Geri - thank you for the great review and kind words. You were such a pleasure to work with...and Congratulations on your wedding, hope it was all you dreamed it would be.

  • This is where we found the Mother of the Groom gown! After 7 Saturdays of intense searching, we walked in and found attentive, warm, interested and very helpful Georgette! The selection of gowns was extensive with a varied price range. Georgette and another sales person helped us and were patient and delightful. Although having seen many of the same gowns wherever we shopped, Papers & Petals Bridal had some very distinctive, elegant gowns. I am so relieved and thrilled to have found my gown! Great bridal shop, great selection and most of all, great service.

  • I was looking for a bridal shop that carried dresses from the Maggie Sottero line, and came across Papers and Petals. I am so very happy I did...From the very start, it was a wonderful experience! Georgette, the owner, treated me like a daughter and worked with me very closely to find the perfect dress and achieve the most ideal alterations. The end result: a dress that looked as if it was made for me. You won't find a more kind, loving and professional lady as Georgette. She truly cares about the bride and wants to make the experience a pleasant and memorable one. At my final fitting, she had tears in her eyes, hugged me and wished me the very best in life. I was truly touched by her genuine emotion...

  • When I went in for my appt they had me fill out a check list of what I wanted / didn't want in a dress. Such as: material, style, beading, etc... I wanted an A-Line / Sheath (this style looks best on my body type), Lace, high neck or sleeves, and NO beading. I told them I wanted something simple and flowing, sort of 70's style and good for an outdoor rustic (I mean camping rustic) wedding. I am a very small person so a big dress doesn't work on me. I tried on 4 dresses. I believe one had straps, another strapless and they put a cover on both to make it long sleeve. 2 of which were mermaid style and the last was strapless mermaid, which I specifically said I did not want. While everyone agreed it looked good on my curves, I specifically said I did not want to look sexy for my wedding. All very big dresses which did not fit my style or my venue. They tried putting on this big gaudy beaded belt. Overall there was no attention to the type of dress I was looking for to fit my style or my v... Read more

  • DO NOT CHOOSE THIS BOUTIQUE. This experience was absolutely horrendous. I am a bridesmaid in my brothers wedding, and his fiancée decided to order from Paper and Petals. After waiting for my dress to arrive MUCH later than it was promised, I was told that I needed to come to the boutique for a fitting. The shop refused to allow me to schedule a fitting for the weekend, which was frustrating. I scheduled an appointment and sat in more than an hour of traffic from San Francisco, then arrived at the shop. I was rudely greeted, and left alone in the shop for several minutes while they went to find my dress (since I had an appointment, I would expect them to maybe have my dress ready to go?). I tried on my dress that was about 6" too long. As this was a fitting, I thought she might help me pin my dress or give me feedback. Instead, I was told "the dress looks like it fits ok. You should take it somewhere to get hemmed." I don't know why I had to bother to drive to this store on a weekday t... Read more

    Dear Krissy, My name is Carolyn I manage the social media for Papers and Petals Bridal. I was very surprised to see the reviews you posted; and wanted to clarify a few points after carefully reviewing your file. 1. The bridesmaid dresses were ordered on May 2, 2016 the dresses arrived in our store early part of July (they arrived early within 2 months, the typical time frame for BM dresses is 3.5 months) 2. You picked up your dress on Aug 4, two months prior to the wedding; therefore you had ample time to pick up your dress without rushing. 3. Your dress was ready when you arrived, we simply needed a few minutes to retrieve it. 4. As far as the length, the bride ordered extra long because your tall, and at that time she was planning on the BM wearing heels, which is an appropriate decision. 5. You were given the option of P&P doing the hem for you or, you could take the dress with you and have it hemmed elsewhere, for your convenience, as opposed to driving back down to Burlingame to pick it up. This option is available to all our customers. 6. The only reason we weren’t able to take you in that weekend; is we we’re booked all weekend, which is normal for a bridal shop. Our shop does cares about our customers and the services we provide; I hope the above response not only clarified how the bridesmaid process operates; but also to let you know; it is never our intention to make someone feel they are being treated poorly. Sincerely, Carolyn

  • Despite the negative reviews I had read on various review sites, my husband and I decided to give the shop a chance and check out Bridesmaid dress options. We were treated very kindly by the shop owner, and were even offered a discount for the bridesmaid dresses we selected. Sounded great...then everything turned sour. I heard from many of my girls that they were bullied into getting larger sizes than they had wanted (perhaps to get more money in alterations). The dresses did not arrive by the date I was promised (ended up arriving 10 weeks later than had been promised!). As I started getting nervous and called to check on the status, I was rudely treated by staff and was given conflicting/vague answers to my questions (maybe stuck in customs? can't track status? should be on their way? probably shipped that week?). Once the dresses did arrive (and were NOT shipped to my girls despite this also being promised to me), we noticed that one of the dresses was the wrong size. The bri... Read more

  • The staff was helpful and friendly and there is a huge selection of both wedding and bridesmaid dresses. They also have resonably priced in house alterations, but I had to have multiple fittings and in the end my dress still did not fit perfect.
