Deserves more than 5 stars!!!
I LOVE LOVE LOVE Amaya Dylan Bridal Gallery! I've been to many bridal salons in both the S.F. & L.A. areas, and I cannot rave enough about Troy, the owner, and her service! Troy is so warm and personable - unlike any other bridal consultant I've ever met. She made me feel instantly at ease and at home in her lovely shop, taking her time with me & never making me feel pressured or like she was rushing me through the process. Because she works mostly by appointment, you get undivided attention from Troy. She was also very honest about working within my budget and finding styles that *I* looked good and felt comfortable in, not just what SHE thought would look good. Troy also lets you take pictures, so you can share with friends and family who couldn't be there with you.

The store is beautifully decorated, like you just walked into a comfortable jewelry box, if you can imagine what that feels like :) I love the fact that Amaya Dylan carries uncommon designers, so you can be sure that your gown is unique (for example, the gown I was looking at is only carried by one other store in all of California). Because of this, Troy doesn't have tons of dresses, but the selection of gowns (as well as veils & jewelry) is gorgeous. And if Troy doesn't have something you're looking for, she can custom design it for you. She also works closely with a tailor to the celebrities who is above her shop, and his prices are extremely fair for the quality of work.
(As an aside, on my first day at her shop, I started to not feel well while trying on gowns. Troy offered me water and a sandwich, and brought a fan in to put cool air on me in the hopes of making me feel better! Danny, the tailor upstairs, also brought me a banana :) Such gracious, genuinely caring people!)
If you are looking for a wedding gown, I highly recommend eschewing other mass-market and/or hoity-toity snooty bridal gown stores, and get the personalized service you deserve from Troy at Amaya Dylan!
