Working with Tina from Natty Bella was one of the best experiences I had while wedding planning! I came to her with a dress from another shop and needed a detailed modesty piece. She listened to my concerns so patiently and made me feel seen and important. From my previous experience with another alterations team, I felt that there was no good solution to my problem. I worried that I would end up being disappointed with the neckline. Tina astonished me. She resurrected my hopes and was a joy to work with. Each time I went in for an appointment she made me feel like a princess. She let me be particular about the *exact* placement and shape of my modesty piece. What was so refreshing is how creative and experienced she was with building a dress's shape. I did not have to do the work of finding out what I wanted -- she showed me what could be done and gave me more several options. So what did she do? She took a plunging V neck and transformed it into a sweetheart neckline. She used the fabric from my hem to make it match and added matching lace and beadings. Now that it's done you cannot even tell that it has been added. The shape is so much sweeter than the original design. Never -- while researching modesty pieces -- did I see an example that looked as seamless as what she did. On top of that, she did some quick fixes where the the dress had been snagged. She helped me brainstorm how to keep my long train off the ground and gave me finger loops for dancing. What really struck me about Tina was her professionalism. She never once put down the other alteration team, even though I was disappointed with their options. She has trained seamstresses in the past and knows the industry well. I respect her so much for how she speaks of her competitors. I would recommend Natty Bella Bridal Couture to anyone. She was my favorite vendor to work with for my wedding.
I am so lucky to have found my dream dress at Natty Bella Bridal. Each dress I tried on was beyond gorgeous; however, there was only one that was perfect for me. Every step, every visit, and each time we communicated was smooth. They listened to my every need, want, and desire. Thank you for everything!
I cannot say enough amazing things about Tina and her gorgeous bridal salon! Everything from when you first walk in until you leave, you just feel like a princess bride. The gown selections are stunning, and Tina is so patient and styles each gown to perfection. Her bridal accessory collection is just as amazing as her gown selections. I highly recommend buying your wedding gown at Natty Bella Bridal!
I read a review before meeting her that Tina was like your bridal fairy godmother and that couldn't have been more accurate. She is one of the nicest people I've ever met and was so amazing at alerting my wedding dress. She had great recommendations, completed everything very quickly, and had great styling tips for my big day. I highly recommend her to any bride who wants peace of mind knowing your dress will be altered perfectly.
Tina has been wonderful! She has made my dress fit beautifully and taught me how to take care of it until the big day. She is very professional and I felt comfortable leaving my dress in her care. I am so thankful to have found her and would recommend Tina to anyone! Thank you again, for making me feel beautiful in my dress!
Tina was a doll and deserves nothing short of five stars. My wedding date was moved up due to Covid-19, and she was able to beautifully alter it with a one week notice. My dress and bustle could not have been better, and I would highly recommend everyone make the drive up to Oceanside to see her.
Tina is the sweetest! She is so knowledgeable and is absolutely great at what she does. She helped me find my dress within minutes! 10/10 recommended!!
My dress fits wonderfully and was altered perfectly. thank you Tina. My dress was a purchase from China. Once delivered it needed to be altered to my body and Tina did a wonderful job. I will be using Tina in the future to make dresses for me as I am a very difficult fit. I finally found someone to make the cloths that are perfect for me!!
This is my second visit with Tina and I find her so very patient with me. I have trouble getting changed due to hardware in my back and she is so helpful. My dress is turning out beautifully thanks to her skills. Thank you again for a beautiful visit!!
My initial appointment was great! Tina was kind and professional and clearly knows what she is doing. I can’t wait to go back for my next fitting to see the final product!
Tina was wonderful! Such a lovely person and she does excellent work!
Had a wonderful first appointment... Antoinette was very kind, with much experience. I am happy that I found her and will be using her in the future as well. I purchased a dress from China for my grand daughters upcoming wedding that needed alterations. I found her on line and was very happy with the suggestions and adjustments that were needed for my dress.
She was awesome, very knowledgeable and seemed energetic to help!
