Sam on 01/09/2017 Fantastic customer service, you tailored the dress selection to my budget and helped me with my selection without pushing me into a decision . Orainda worked with me for 4 hours while I tried to make up my mind and was great the whole time.
Cassandra from Eagle river on 01/06/2017 Loved all of her helpful tips. Went in not expecting to buy a dress and left with not only one.... but an amazing experience to go along. Great customer service and would recommend her to any new bride!
Tasha Rice from Anchorage on 01/05/2017 Love the store. Selection was wonderful. The only thing that could make it more perfect would be to have the dress in my size ready to go, straight from the store. Lol. The service was excellent, the best in town and I will likely be back soon once I decide on the dress for me, after we lockdown the venue.
Eva from Alyeska on 12/27/2016 Orainda was knowledgeable, organized and prepared during my dress fitting. The dress preference pre survey was helpful in making the fitting session go smoothly and quickly. Orainda shared great "big picture" ideas about how to incorporate personal touches into my big day, and she overall focused on what I liked in terms of dresses and my style. Great experience!
The lovejoy's from Anchorage on 12/23/2016 I can't say enough good things about Orainda and her bridal shop. My daughter and I would absolutely recommend this bridal shop to anyone who is looking. Orainda is so friendly and helpful.
Hannah Stark from Anchorage on 12/11/2016 Picking Orainda's as my first place to shop for the perfect dress was something I will recommend to anyone over and over again. In my eyes a he set the bar high as her knowledge and attentiveness were outstanding. Not only did she take the time to pick out dresses prior to me arriving, but along the way she gave great advice to help me find my perfect dress. My visit to her boutique was personably and I would recommend her be your number one choice when shopping for your gown.
Patricia Cummings from Orainda's Bridal Boutique on 12/03/2016 I had such a great experience! You were so hopeful in so many ways! It was so much more than just a dress search. I felt so comfortable there. I wil for sure recommend any other brides to visit your shop!
Allison Hulst (soon to be Anderson) from Soldotna, AK on 10/23/2016 I'm so grateful for the knowledgable and friendly service I received while shopping with my mom and matron of honor. I think I was more impressed by the service than anything else. As my mom has been saying for days, we not only received the perfect dress but also a wealth of knowledge.
Genevieve W from Orainda's Boutique on 10/23/2016 I had a great experience with Orainda at her boutique. She made my mom and I feel right at home while I tried on many bridal gowns. She has a wonderful assortment of dresses and accessories. She is helpful, kind, knowledgeable, and wanting to help each bride find The Dress. Her shop is the opposite of a big box store but she still has so many different dresses to try. This is how every small business is supposed to make the customer feel.
Samantha from Old Seward Hwy on 10/15/2016 I enjoyed the experience and took in all of the information that was provided from dresses to wedding details! Orainda did an amazing job helping me with dresses and will be making another appointment in the near future. Orainda is very knowledgable and makes your experience unforgettable.
Kimberly from Eagel River, AK on 10/12/2016 I found Oainda's though an internet search and was thrilled that Orainda was such a pleasure to work with! Her knowledge not only of dresses but also events and of the bridal industry was outstanding. I greatly appreciate her freely sharing tips and tricks regarding the wedding day. However, the best part of my experience was her incorporation of details of my theme and helping me develop an idea of the perfect look! I am looking forward to working with her in the future
Jennifer from Anchorage AK on 10/01/2016 Wonderful shop!! Orainda is fabulous! Thank you for making my first day trying on dresses such a lovely experience! :)
Rebecca Baker from Anchorage on 09/24/2016 Orainda is absolutely wonderful and great to work with. She's very knowledgeable and attentive to my wants and needs. I had a wonderful experience trying on dresses today and will definitely return soon!
Miss Pam from Wasilla on 09/23/2016 Orainda was fun to work with! She listened to my desires in a dress. Let me put it this way, I look and feel like a princess in it. My fiancee will NOT see this dress till our wedding day. I want to see his face when he sees me walking down the isle. That will be our gift to each other.
Caitlyn from North Pole, AK on 09/18/2016 I had an amazing experience at Orainda's! It was my first time trying on dresses, and she was so knowledgeable and made me feel so comfortable it made the whole process so easy! She gave me other tips and hints about not only dresses but my entire wedding, too! She knows and loves what she does, and you can tell you and your big day aren't just another one for her, they truly matter, and are as special to her as they are to you!
Crystal Girves from Anchorage, AK 99502 on 09/08/2016 Wonderful place to go and celebrate your pre-wedding party and have fun with your best girlfriends and family. Melissa Fitiausi from JBER, AK on 09/04/2016 Loved the entire experienced. Definitely has the eye for finding the right look for any bride. She involved the entire family. Our baby girl also got to try on a flower girl dress and she loved it. Thanks you Orainda!
Shannon Evans from Cordova, AK on 09/01/2016 This was a wonderful experience. Orainda had dresses already for me to try on when I got there. She helped me make the choice that was right for me and it was fun! Thank you so much! I really found the perfect dress. Heather Maidl from Anchorage on 08/28/2016 This was the first time that I had looked for a wedding dress so I had a lot of questions. My questions were all answered and I was at ease during my appointment. Being the only appointment in the store, I felt like I was well taken care of. I would definitely recommend Orainda's!
Bridget FItzgibbons from Anchorage on 08/08/2016 Orainda gave me a great experience. She not only listened to me but she watched my expression and body language. I found the perfect dress and I have Orainda to thank for it! I will be back for my Bridesmaid dresses!
Michaela from Anchorage on 07/25/2016 Orainda was incredibly helpful and willing to offer suggestions about possible dresses and other wedding related topics. I really appreciated her friendliness and flexibility.
Erin Double from Eagle River, AK on 07/18/2016 I have a skewed review, as Orainda's is the only bridal salon I've been to. (First stop for wedding gown shopping & never felt the need to visit anywhere else.) Orainda's service is top-notch. Completely satisfied as a customer, and I would not hesitate to shop here again.
Sabrina Bair from Anchorage on 07/03/2016 I had a great experience looking for my wedding dress! You were so patient and encouraging. Plus, it was just a blast chatting and hanging out with the girls. You were also amazing at nailing down exactly what I wanted without me even knowing what I wanted!
Malissa from Anchorage on 06/23/2016 I enjoyed my first visit with Orainda's Bridal Boutique. Very welcoming and comfortable environment. She's fun and cheerful. Her advices are very helpful. It is my first stop to start searching for "The ONE" wedding dress. :) I am definitely coming back.
Nicole from Anchorage on 06/22/2016 I couldn't have asked for a better experience! You had the gown I was envisioning from the beginning & at my price point! I enjoyed my experience and wish I had gone to you first. Hands down. Every Bride-To-Be needs to schedule an appointment with you! :)
Pam from Wasilla on 05/19/2016 Thank you so much for a fun experience with my dress shopping experience, I had today. I am looking forward to seeing the other dress that is coming in. I really did love the pink one,and leaning towards that dress. I felt like a princess Can't wait to hear, if I can get that dress in tea length, and if I can get a matching jacket. Thanks for your help, it was fun. Pam
Orainda was fabulous. I had no clue what I was looking for but her sense of ease and style let me know right away that I had come to the right spot! I never would have guessed that any dress could make me feel so confident to be walking down the aisle. Thank you for all your help and the fun you added to the day!
