I wish I could remember my attendant’s name. She was so thorough and thoughtful and took so much care and time with my appointment. I saw her twice to try on wedding dresses. The first time I did it solo and she made me feel so relaxed about trying dresses on by myself and made me feel like I was trying them on with a friend. The second time I came with my mom and she was really helpful with picking items that my mom and I both liked. Great shop! Great selection and nice, helpful people.

I bought my wedding and engagement party dresses at Promises Bridal yesterday. The owner, Linda, helped me pick out my wedding gown. She was such a delight and very personable. My experience was nothing but perfect and I walked out of there with the down payment on my wedding dress, an engagement party dress, and all the accessories for my big day. I'm going to recommend this shop to anyone who is in need of a formal dress.

I had a great experience at Promises Bridal. I was not expecting to leave with a dress, but I found one that I absolutely loved. The staff was really friendly and fun. They made me feel right at home. The dressing area is super cute, too. Totally recommend this place. It saved me a crazy trip to the city because the perfect dress was right here in Humboldt!

I had an amazing experience yesterday! Hadn't planned on buying one on my first trip, but I did. I can't remember the woman's name who helped me, but she was awesome. Figured out what I liked and wasn't pushy. Too bad she is leaving!!!! Thanks again!

The ladies helped tremendously After trying on 4 dress and all were no I found the love of my life and said " yes to the dress" I cried like a baby and knew it was the one...

Couldn't be happier with my experience at promises! Emily and Linda were amazing and so helpful! We pulled so many dresses and unfortunately I was so torn between two dresses and couldn't choose! Highly recommend coming here these girls know their stuff!

I live in San Francisco but am from Humboldt County so most of my friend's and family are up there. I wanted them to be a part of the wedding dress shopping so on a recent trip back home I made an appointment. There were so many beautiful dresses to choose from and the ladies were so nice. They worked with what I had said I wanted in a dress but also introduced me to new styles that fit my body well and made me feel beautiful. One of the dresses I tried on there is in the running to be my dress for the big day.

I had a great experience trying on gowns! The sales associate was super friendly and supportive. She gave me advice when I asked, but didn't push her personal opinions on me. She didn't push me to buy a dress either, and was helpful in figuring out when I would need to order one in time for my wedding. I am definitely coming back in a month or two to try on more dresses!

My consultant did a great job helping me narrow down what I like. She made me feel very comfortable as it was my first time trying on gowns. Once I narrow down what I want, I'm sure I'll be back!

Linda was amazing! Thank you for your time and patience with me while it seemed like I tried on every gown in the store. You were so kind, and we both knew when we found "the one." Your store has great inventory, and you were truly helpful to me. Thanks again!

Amanda was great! She was enthusiastic, helpful, and just generally fun to try on with. She found the dress I think is going to be "the one"! I would recommend Promises to anyone looking for a formal dress :)

When I came into promises I wasn't sure what to expect. I am plus size bride and most of dresses that I looked at online were a-line or ball gowns, which are not my style. I let Emily know I was feeling apprehensive about this experience and she reassured that the right dress would be out there for me. Emily was right, I ended up trying on about 10 different dresses in my appointment! They were all beautiful and I have a realistic perspective on plus size bridal shopping. When I am ready to purchase I will be coming back to Promises. Thank you for the warm and professional environment and experience. I hope that I can continue to have more magical moments like this one throughout the process of planning my wedding.

Yesterday was really fun and helpful.All the ladys with me had a good time and my daughter was treated very special by Mandy.I had tried on dresses at a shop in Grants Pass and Davids Bridal in Medford and this was the best experience. Thank you.

Mandy was very positive and helpful. She really helped capture what I wanted. She made me feel good about myself in each dress I put on.

I had a wonderful experience at Promises today! I came in not having a clue as to what I wanted and the staff was fabulous. They are very skilled in knowing what will work and what won't. I don't know if I found "the dress" but I know what I don't want and what will not work for me. I look forward to working with the staff again and finding the dress that is right for me.

Amanda from Arcata

I was fairly nervous about my first dress-shopping experience -- I didn't want to feel bad about my size, be pressured into a dress I didn't like, or feel overwhelmed. Mandy was FANTASTIC: so kind, upbeat, and really knew her stuff. She understood what I wanted and really worked her butt off to find me some great dresses. This girl deserves a raise! Thank you!

Promises has been my go-to for several bridesmaid dresses already, so when I got engaged two months ago, I knew I'd be visiting again soon! Amanda and Linda Jo were extraordinarily helpful during my bridal appointment, giving expert advice and insight. I appreciate your experience and knowledge, ladies!

I really enjoyed my experience today. I felt very welcome and comfortable as soon as I walked in. Emily was extremely helpful, professional, and sweet. She was so patient with my bridesmaids and me as we picked out everything I wanted to try on. She was so easy to work with. I loved a couple of the dresses and the prices were great. I loved them so much I couldn't decide, so I will be back as soon as I can pick one! i would recommend Promises to any of my friends who are shopping for a wedding dress.

I had a wonderful time when I came in, I was super nervous since it was my first time even looking at bridal gowns, I didn't know where to begin. It was really nice to try on the different dresses and see which one fits me best. I came in with something in mind but left with a favorite that was completely different. I love it! I can't wait to do future wedding planning there.
Becca from Orangevale, Ca

This place is amazing! There's so much selection, the ladies let you pick out some choices of their own. They are very comfortable to be around and respectful of your price range. Anyone looking for dresses in the area I would direct then toward Promises because I found my perfect dress there that I wouldn't have been able to find anywhere else. Thank you :)

I had such a lovely and positive experience. Amanda helped pull dresses for me. Linda explained the price increase in bridal over the past few years. I tried on dresses almost double my budget. But I could feel the difference. I have a large bust and these gowns looked & felt great without any supportive undergarmets! I'm in love with one dress. I keep staring at the pics....pretty sure its the one! Very happy to support local business. Worth the extra cost especially when it goes back to the community.
