I walked into Blush without an appointment and was still welcomed to find a dress for my upcoming event. The staff was very helpful and made the experience better than I could have imagined! I will definitely return to Blush for future event gowns!

After a not so good experience prom dress shopping at a chain store bridal shop we decided to check this store out. The staff was amazing and very attentive! We found an amazing dress, it was well worth the trip and a bit higher price!!! Thank you

My whole experience at Blush was incredible right from the moment I scheduled the appointment. Katherine immediately reached out to congratulate me and confirm the date and time of my appointment. This personal touch was consistent throughout the whole experience. Arriving at Blush I found the environment warm and inviting and loved that we were the only group in the shop. The undivided attention and feel that we had the shop to ourselves was very comforting. The whole experience was personal and I can not rave enough about Katherine! From the moment we walked in she was welcoming and so excited. Each dress she made sure to read my expression and let me walk through what I liked and didn't like. She made sure my opinion was heard and only gave her opinion when I specifically asked. When I found a dress that fit perfect and everyone loved she walked me through my wedding day. she had me close my eyes and when she got to me standing across from my fiancé she asked me to open my eyes. The whole exercise was magical and so unique it brought tears to my eyes. Although I had another dress in mind from a previous shop, Katherine did everything she could to recreate it so that I could compare. We decided to go to lunch and meet up with my fiancés Mom and Grandmother. Katherine advised she would hold the dress, belt and veil for me since it was off the rack. After lunch I received an incredible follow up email from Katherine reminding me how gorgeous I was in the dress, that she would hold it for me and to let her know if I went we another dress. I did end up going with the other dress and Katherine still made a point to tell me that she was happy I made a decision, I was going to be stunning on my wedding day and that she would love to see the dress. I wish Blush carried the designer of the dress I decided on because I would have purchased it from Katherine in a heartbeat. Again I can not thank Katherine enough. She was by far the best consultant I have worked with and truly made me feel like a bride while still catering to my personality. I am sure we will be back to look at dresses for my bridesmaids and mom because of Katherine! Thank you all so much!!

Chandler was fantastic! I had my heart set on trying to find the Hayley Paige Decklyn dress and when that wasn't available Inwent in a totally different direction of a mermaid and lace ... more bohemian which was what I thought I wanted but that Hayley Paige dress was still on my mind. I tried on 12-15 gorgeous dresses and was happy. Chandler remembered another gown that had the same cut as the Decklyn only it was more formal and had all of these embellishments I never would have ever thought of trying it on ... it was crazy and I loved it!! I can't wait to come back and show my tribe and "say yes" and order it in the next couple of weeks!!

To be honest i was hesitant in trying dresses on im not one that loves to wear dresses so walking in for my appointment to pick my wedding dress I must say I was a little nervous. Katherine beyond exceeded my expectations - she was more than helpful, cheered me on, and gave me the confidence boost i needed as a bride to be. After narrowing it down to three dresses and trying each on at least five times just to make sure I was choosing the right one for our big day, I said YES to the dress!!! Katherine - thank you from the bottom of my heart for being so absolutly fantastic today i will be sending all of my friends to see you in the furure! ??

Chandler was phenomenal in making my time extremely personal and allowing me to voice my own opinions about dresses. She pulled dresses that suited me perfectly, and really grasped my idea of what I love. I’m so excited that I have found my favorite, perfect wedding dress!

I would highly recommend Blush to anyone looking for a bridal or special occasion dress. They were extremely helpful and had many options for me to try on during my visit. I didn’t feel overwhelmed or rushed and felt my stylist - Chandler - was very knowledgeable of the inventory. She was wonderful!

Alyssa was great! She really balanced pulling dresses that were in the style that I had in mind and pulling some with slight differences. This led to me choosing a dress with the flowy skirt that I thought I wanted, but with an unexpected neckline that I love! She was sweet and encouraging, and she helped put things in perspective when deciding to say yes by having me consider my feelings about each part of the dress. All parts were perfect!

Katherine is amazing! She knows me better than I know myself! She picked out styles that I would have never picked for myself which led me to find me the most amazing dress!!! Thank you:)

Blush is such an amazing little shop! Their dress selection is wonderful and they have something for everyone. The lovely ladies who work there are friendly and very helpful. They helped me find my perfect dress and didn't try and force me into buying something out of my price range. I'm very happy to have gone to Blush and found my dress at a fantastic price. I recommend this shop to anyone who wants a positive, fun, and easygoing dress shopping experience!

Chandler was so nice and helpful, she really narrowed the style down and read me perfectly. I had two dresses I really loved and it’s like she married the two and picked out the perfect one. I was nervous going in and she made it super easy and actually pretty fast. Thank You so much!!

I went in to Blush with overwhelming nerves and feelings of uncertainty that I would find a dress that I loved on me as much as I loved it on the rack. From the moment I walked in, Alyssa made me feel comfortable and welcome, making my entire experience memorable and everything it should have been. I’m so thankful that I was able to enjoy this special day with Alyssa, thanks to all of her knowledge and support. Thank you for making me feel like a princess! -Breann

IKristen who helped me was great. I was shopping for a Mother of the Groom dress. I chose one dress (Komarov) from the many lovely dresses in the shop. Kristen gave me her full attention, and suggestions about ways to wear the dress and accessories.

My experience with Blush Bridal could NOT have gone better. I was given dresses I never thought to try or would look good on. I went out of my comfort zone and ended up loving (and buying) a dress that someone else saw for my body type. The girls know exactly what they are doing and cheer you on the entire time! Every bride should buy their dress here because they won’t be disappointed!

Chandler was awesome, I couldn't get my first date that I wanted but they let me know on cancellations so I could be squeezed in as soon as possible. They had a smaller selection than I thought but the dresses were gorgeous. I didn't find "the one" but definitely got some new ideas and they offered to ship a dress to a closer location for me if I wanted to try it on again!

Yesterday, I visited a chain store, with the impression that they had tons of options and I'd be destined to find THE dress. I left feeling discouraged. This is important because today, I visited Blush. From the moment I walked in, the staff gave us a warm welcome and made my family and I feel so comfortable. They provided multiple dress options and even encouraged me to try dresses I normally wouldn't have chosen. I left the shop contemplating two dresses and trying to decide which one I love more. I'll be sure to recommend this experience to anyone and everyone, because it was more than just shopping for the perfect dress. The staff made it the perfect experience all around! Thank you!

I came in with my mother and grandmother to try on some dresses for a July wedding. Everyone we talked with at Blush was great - very professional and genuine. I worked with Alyssa who was awesome! She made me feel very comfortable and helped me pick out some dresses in my comfort range and some that branched out a bit & were beautiful! She was really listening to what I liked and didn't like about the dresses and was just great in general. The atmosphere was beautiful and personal, too.

I would highly recommend this location to anyone. Chandler was amazing and very welcoming. We visited the store prior to the wedding dress shopping day and instantly requested her as our assistant for the day of the big decision. The privacy of the closed off dress section was very appreciated and respectful and much more personalized and the champagne was amazing! Thanks so much for a wonderful experience! I said yes to the dress and couldn't be happier

I had an amazing experience at Blush Bridal & Formal! I was nervous as this was the first place I had made an appointment to look for my wedding dress. Alyssa and Katherine both made me feel so comfortable and at ease as soon as I got there. Alyssa helped me to pick out some initial wedding dresses to try on, and as I tried them on she was amazing at figuring out what I liked and didn't and finding more dresses to match what I liked. I tried on many wedding dresses, but the second dress I even tried on was actually my dream dress! I can't thank these two ladies enough for their help! I am so excited to have found my dress, and I had the most amazing bridal shopping experience!

I loved my experience, I went in thinking I was not going to find my perfect dress, but my consultant Alyssa pulled the most perfect dresses for me to try on, it only took 2 dresses to find the one (and a couple just for fun). I did expect a broader selection of more affordable dresses, however my dress fell right into my price range and it's perfect!

Chandler helped me yesterday and she was awesome! She suggested a few styles that I otherwise never would have looked at, and she was very patient and helpful with trying everything on and describing the dresses. There was a great atmosphere at Blush - not too pushy, and the girls were there to help and give opinions when needed. Blush has a great selection of bridal dresses, all I'll definitely be considering them in the next few months as I try on dresses!

Alyssa was such a huge help during my dress fitting. She offered some great options and was pleasant to work with. I loved her suggestions for glamming up some of the more simpler gowns. I really appreciate that I had time and space to consider the wonderful options. Had a great experience and would definitely recommend this beautiful store to others!

I had a wonderful time during my recent appointment at Blush's Portland location. So wonderful that I chose my dress on my first ever visit! Alexis and Chandler were wonderful to work with and made myself, my mother, my future mother-in-law and maid of honor feel welcome and comfortable. The try-on process was great, and they were very flexible. Each pulled a handfull of really great dresses and encouraged me to pick a few of my own, which was really exciting. I was also happy to find the perfect shoes, veil and belt. I'm all about the one-stop shop experience, so finding everything in one afternoon was a major plus. I will always remember my trip to Portland and can't wait to pick up my dress this spring! Thank you ladies and thank you Blush!

I walked in a little hopeless and panicked from searching for weeks for a gold toned dress for my brother's wedding. I was greeted right away by the manager (tall, beautiful, dark is escaping me, I'm sorry). I told her what I was looking for and she immediately pulled a few dresses out that I wouldn't have given a second look to. Being desperate, I decided to try them anyway. The first one I tried on I immediately fell in love with. She was my hero that day. She even showed me how to pair it with a leather jacket for a cool edgy night on the town. The dress came with a matching jacket of sorts, which she also encouraged me to wear with jeans. She is amazing! Thank you thank you thank you!

Katherine was incredible and made dress shopping so easy. She was knowledgeable, patient, and took our needs and body shapes into account, bringing out beautiful dresses that we ended up buying. We had a wonderful time and walked away within an hour with a maid of honor dress and a mother of the bride dress.
