So..I’m basically a professional bridesmaid lol. I was in 8 weddings just last year. I’ve been to so many bridal shops here in San Antonio as well as Austin, Dallas and Abilene. Well, gals, it’s finally my turn to be the bride! I started shopping this weekend and Bridal Connection was where I started my hunt. I came in wanting to look but not try on. I had gone through the dress shopping process with other brides but never once ever imagined looking for myself or from the perspective of the bride. It was a little scary, overwhelming and exciting all at the same time. Thankfully I had amazing help from Angelita to set me free of all anxiety. My MOH convinced me to go ahead and try a few dresses I liked. Angelita was AMAZING! She listened to every single detail or what I liked or disliked about pretty much every gown in the store! When she found out that I was at the very beginning stages of dress shopping, SHE GAVE ME A FREE BRIDAL MAGAZINE!! I didn’t have one before and it seriously melted my heart. What amazing customer service! In fact, that was above and beyond customer service. I would call it selflessness not service! Did I mention I tried on 6 different dresses after my bridesmaid that drove in from Austin showed up an hour later than our appointment was supposed to start because she got stuck in traffic? The time passed so quickly we actually didn’t finish until an hour after close!! Angelita stayed late just for me to finish up naturally because none of us realized what time it was at that point. I will be back for sure and look forward to bringing my mom next time:) Not only were they amazing to the bride, but they treated my maid of honor and bridesmaid like princesses as well. From personal experience, shops like these usually could care less about the bridesmaids. Bridesmaids are the brides support system so it was amazing to see a company that understands that and doesn’t tear that support down!! If I end up not finding “the” dress here at the very least I will be getting my bridesmaid dresses here! But I already have a huge contender for my big day after just one day of shopping here. – Audrey L.

This was the second store I went to for wedding dresses. The first one I went to last night left me feeling unsatisfied about the whole process. The lady kept bringing me dresses I told her I didn’t want and then kicked me out when they closed at 7:00. I was nervous about going shopping today hoping that it wouldn’t be like the night before. I walked into Bridal Connection today and was greeted by a friendly staff and a smile. “T” listened to what I was looking for and made sure that we tried on dresses that I picked out. The first dress I tried on was a hit! It was everything I was looking for, from the sleeves, sheer back and crystal embellishments. They even ordered it for me with the gold accents to help me go with the vintage theme of my wedding.  I loved their selection and the decent price for the designer dress I purchased. I love this place and would recommend it to anyone. I can’t wait to see my dress when it comes in July! – Ally S.

I am a newly engaged “Bride to Be”. I have only 6 months to prepare for a “destination” wedding, so “pressure” is a kind word. I have an amazing daughter and best friend (MOH) who are walking with me hand in hand and assisting in coordination because they LOVE doing this! Walking in to Bridal Connection today and be blessed by Angeleta and Rafaela just added the icing to the cake. Angeleta had my dress styles pulled and ready, she was friendly, knowledgeable, and it was very evident that she truly has a Passion for what she does. Rafaela was genuinely excited and engaged as well. Just as knowledgeable and as passionate as Angeleta. They worked well together and gave me comfort in knowing that they knew their stuff. I walked in with a collage of ideas and walked out with a PLAN, my wedding dress ordered, my flower girl dress ordered and my bridesmaids dresses that I thought I had picked out from somewhere else quickly changed to dresses we found in their store. Team work makes the Dream Work and I am so thankful that my daughter found them!!!! – Heather H.

I absolutely loved my experiencehere. Angelita was the icing on the cake. Her passion and love of her job really helps create an awesome experience for the bride,the bridesmaids and even the mother of the Bride! If it wasn’t for her expertise and helping me choose a dress (that on the hanger I was unsure about) I wouldn’t have found “the one”. I am sooooo in love with my dress, I didn’t want to take it off!!! – Ashley C.

I love this place! My sister in law found her wedding dress here and I found mine here as well! Angelita was more than helpful and was the sweetest ever! I would recommend them to anyone who is getting married and wants to find the perfect dress for a great price!! :) – Shelby S.

I love Angelita!! I have to say I was blown away by how friendly and magical she made my visit. I was so nervous and did not have a clue of what I needed. Angelita handled me with such ease that I felt I had known her forever. Love, Love this store!!! Other stores I have been in made me feel like a number and were rude. Not at The Bridal Connection. I have waited a long time to feel what every bride dreams of …… tears of joy and excitement! I found my moment at this bridal store!! Thank You so much!!! xoxoxo – Cathy M.

I had the best experience here!!! All the ladies were so nice, knowledgeable, and made me feel like a million bucks!!! Angelita found all the gowns in my budget and clearly pin pointed the look I wanted! I am so excited to wear this beautiful gown on my wedding day! Thank YOU! – Amber Michelle

Thank you Bridal Connection for all of your help! The dress and the veil is beautiful and I am so anxious for the day to come for me to put it all on! Thanks to all of you for providing me with one of the most important parts of this whole day pictures to come! Xoxo -Tory Rodriguez

WOW! I have to admit, I was very skeptical about buying my bridal gown from a mall store. I have dreamed about my wedding since I was a little girl, as well as the experiences that come along with it like shopping for my wedding dress! I love watching Say Yes to the Dress and all I wanted was that magical experience with my bridesmaids and family. Viva did not let us down! We were welcomed to our appointment and although we were waiting on one more girl, we were not rushed at all. Viva took her time with us and let each of the girls pick out a dress for me to try on. She pulled veils, belts, and sleeves to go with the ones we loved just like the “jack it up” experience on TV. When I put on my last gown, the one we all were waiting for, she turned down the lights and I came out to a happily tearful bridal party. It was a wonderful experience! At the end when we were purchasing the gown, the owner himself came to congratulate us. You could tell they loved what they do there. Not only did they do a great job with our customer service, but the salon had high end designer dresses for great prices! I got my dream David Tutera gown under budget! I could not be happier with how it all worked out. I HIGHLY recommend visiting The Bridal Connection. They blew me away! (And I am pretty picky lol) One more thing I would recommend that I did was to give a way for your party to score the dresses. I got mini chalkboards for each of the girls so I could see how they ranked the dresses. This made it fun and easy for me to tell who liked what gowns and was a fun touch! -Natalie Robertson

The ladies at bridal connection were so helpful. After looking for dresses at over 10 stores I finally found the one I was dreaming of. Having to order a dress because I will be 7 months pregnant at the time of my wedding, the ladies were extreme helpful in catering to my situation. Overall just a big thank you to these lovely women.-Lauren Chance

Homecoming 2014, After 2 weeks of shopping for a perfect dress we just could not find. We decided to head over to Rolling Oaks Mall to check out Dillards, Macy’s but we had no idea Bridal Connection was were we would find the perfect dress and at a great price compared to the dept. Stores. Staff was Awesome. Thank you Bridal Connection her dress added to her most memorable homecoming night. Definitely first place we will shop for prom and homecoming in the years to come.- Vivian Vela

I was having so much difficulty finding a dress for the Marine Ball. I went to 10 different stores. A week before event I went to this store and every dress I tried on I loved. The prices were amazing. I bought 2 dresses for the price of one! Just couldn’t decided between the two. – Nina Rivera

After searching several bridal boutiques and having no luck we called Bridal Connection.  They were able to get us in quickly and helped find the perfect wedding dress for my sister!!  They were extremely friendly and made my sister feel comfortable and important when finding her dress!  Not only did we find an amazing wedding dress we were also able to find bridesmaid dresses that were beautiful and affordable! – Elisa Walton

Personalized attention from the moment you walk in….The consultants are very helpful and treat every bride like a princess. – Gina Jaramillo

I found “the dress” in one morning (I’d been in a few other stores before but this blew the other out of the water), thanks to the awesome assistance from Angelita!! She was very patient, helpful, and great in making me feel comfortable. Very professional and enjoyable experience, especially for such a special moment in my life! Thank you for making the moment so special :)Annie M.

It was such a pleasure to meet you last Sunday! I couldn’t stop thinking about my dream dress and decided to take a leap of faith and order it. I wanted to celebrate and share my good news with those who made it happen with tasty treats… I’m so glad you enjoyed yours! I cannot wait for the dress to come in and try it on so I hope to see you in a few months!!  Please know I feel so blessed to have found my dress at Bridal Connection. You all have a true passion for making a bride’s dream come true and have gone above and beyond to make me feel like a beautiful bride-to-be… And for that I am forever grateful! – Julie Pyle

Awesome experience at Bridal Connection!
Angelita and staff were so great! They were very personable and catered to my bestie’s every need! We  even found our bridesmaid dresses! With Angelita’s help, my bestie will ADORE her look on her special day and remeber her wedding for her lifetime! – Emma O

Amazing service and beautiful dresses!  I made an appointment on a Sunday and was the only bride there that day.  I have been to several bridal shops and this was the best service that I have received so far.  Angelita is AMAZING and was very helpful.She was conscious about my budget and the style that I was looking for.  This place set the bar for every other place that I went to and every other dress I tried on was compared to the ones there. She also had great advise about picking bridesmaid dresses.  I found 2 amazing dresses and am going back soon to make the final decision:)

Every other place that I went to had me go look at their selection and put tags on the dresses that I think I would like.  Because all of the dresses look different on the hanger than they do on and all of the styles were mixed in together, I was not sure of the style I was pulling.  Angelita took the time to go through the rack with me and got styles that I was looking for.  I was pretty open to styles, but I knew mermaid dresses DO NOT work for me.  I feel like I wasted so much time trying on all of the mermaid dresses that I told the people at other places that I did not want, but they did not offer guidance to what I was looking for and let me walk aimlessly around the store just pulling whatever.  Again, the bar was set extremely high after my first visit to Bridal Connection.  There is no better place and they really care about the bride. – Bobbi Jo H.

I absolutely love the Bridal Connection. Angelita was beyond wonderful and helpful. She completely went out of her way to make sure I found the perfect gown and I could never thank her enough for what she has done for me! I have a specific body issue that I have always been insecure about and once I told her about it, Angelita helped me find a beautiful dress that made me completely forget about my insecurities. I love my dress and would recommend the Bridal Connection to every bride. The store was adorable and I could not be happier with my Mori Lee gown. – Rachel B.

The best bridal boutique in San Antonio by far! The staff was extremely accommodating and took the time to help me find the perfect wedding dress for my special day.
They were able to fit me in for a last minute appointment and upon arrived welcomed my family and I with open doors. They created a comfortable and relaxed environment that was truly a memorable experience! In addition finding my perfect wedding dress, I was also able to find my bridesmaid dress. Bridal connections offers a range of prices to meet any budget and truly delivers exception service!!!!! – Christina M.

Went here on Saturday for my best friends dress fitting & it was amazing!! Had such a wonderful time, everyone here was very friendly and helpful. Beautiful dresses at great prices. I highly recommend this place for anyone who’s looking for a non stressful environment for their wedding! – Cassandra C.

I just bought my wedding gown today with help from Angelita. She listened to what I wanted and was patient as I made my decision- even helped by adding a veil, bouquet, and other accessories to complete the look. I only had to try on 6 dresses before I found the one! – Valerie B.

Excellent service at bridal connection! They have beautiful dresses and were so helpful in finding my wedding dress. I loved that I was only one of two people trying on dresses so it wasn’t too crowded for my mom and friends that came with me. I was also able to find my bridesmaids dresses the same day! – Casey B.

Went into Bridal Connection at Stone Oak this afternoon to look for bridesmaids dresses and wedding gowns and Angelita was so wonderful to work with and their store had a great selection. Loved how we were treated like family and not just a number. – Achaie L.

THE VERY BEST CUSTOMER SERVICE!! My best friend found her one of a kind wedding dress!! We had the best time and loved every minute of our experience!! Don’t waste any time going to big chain bridal shops!! The personal touch of Bridal Connection was superb. Ask for Angelita!! She was spectacular! - Kelsey M.

This store deserves a five because they truly offer a pleasant customer experience. The lady who waited on me knew I was not in the business of purchasing an expensive wedding dress. She still treated me as if I was. I purchased a beautiful white dress for our wedding renewal in Hawaii. I highly recommend this store for every women who wants to be treated as being a VIP customer. – Sabine F.
