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!

I went to Blush for my first wedding dress shopping experience. Katherine was very helpful and helped me to find the perfect dress without overwhelming me. Also Blush was more than willing to accommodate some of my requests.

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.

The bridal store was beautiful and everyone was so friendly. From the second I walked in to when I left there was nothing but smiles from me and everyone there. My consultant Katherine was incredibly understanding of my tight budget and was still able to show me dresses I loved. I didn't feel pressured when I came in at all, I just felt welcomed and taken care of! I definitely recommend this boutique!

I worked with Katherine and wow she was incredible, she picked out dresses that I absolutely fell inlove with! She did however make it super hard because now I need to pick a dress out of 5 I have liked! Definitely would and will recommend Blush to anyone and everyone!

Jamie was so helpful and nice. I've been on other wedding dress shopping trips with friends and dealt with pushy salespeople. Jamie was the opposite of that. She knew I wasn't going to buy a dress that day (it was my first shopping trip and my mom wasn't with me), but she didn't treat me any differently. I hope all of my wedding dress shopping experiences are like this!

I had the best time at Blush. Jamie was amazing and such a fun consulant. She was willing to try so many dresses on me, and even when I wanted to try one with a million buttons for the third time, she was such a trooper. Thank you, I had THE BEST time!

I went in discouraged because I hadn't been able to find any dresses I liked online or in stores that fit my price range. When I walked into Blush, I was welcomed with open arms and was given plenty of dress options that fit my budget. The girl that helped me was very nice and told me what would happen if I needed to hem the dress. She also helped me figure out what kind of jewelry I should wear. Over all my experience was great! I felt way better walking out with all the help I got, and I got the perfect prom dress. :)

Words cannot express how happy I am about my experience at Blush! I I knew from the start with the questionnaire email that i was going to be in great hands. The manager Kathrine, who helped me was phenomenal at her job. I had tried on dresses elsewhere previously and had lost hope and confidence that I could be a beautiful bride. The very first dress I tried on that Kathrine picked had both my mother and I in tears. I said yes to that dress and I can stop thinking about it!!! Thank you Blush & thank you Kathrine!!!!
