A great bridal boutique!!!
We went to Henson's Bridal today to search for my cousin's wedding dress. We started out at David's Bridal (3111 Stevens Creek Blvd), where a snooty consultant turned us away because we didn't have an appointment...they were supposedly booked solid even though there were only 2 brides there at the time! David's Bridal ended up having a cancellation, and gave us the 12pm slot. We decided to go to another bridal store while waiting and found Henson's right down the road. It was a nice store, well organized. We were greeted by friendly consultants, no appointment necessary and we could pull any dress we wanted, which wasn't allowed at David's Bridal; where we had to trust the consultant would pull the right dresses according to our ideas. The consultant selected the most beautiful dresses for my cousin, each one fitting her perfectly. It was a hard decision, but we helped my cousin narrow her choices to 3 dresses before heading back to David's Bridal. After lunch, we went back to Henson's and my cousin tried on the top 3 favorites again...choosing one of them as her dream dress. It's stunning, unique and a great value! Her wedding is only 4 months away and they will be able to get it in time. Alterations cost extra, which seems standard at most bridal boutiques now, including David's Bridal, but that can add to the cost of the total purchase price. The thing I didn't like was that they don't allow photography, probably to discourage finding the perfect dress and then buying it elsewhere, but it would have been nice to have some pictures to compare to the ones we took at David's Bridal. Overall it was a great shopping experience and it was personal...a wonderful wedding planning memory.
