Cristina is fun and low key and very talented. I didn't know exactly what I wanted and she understood my style and what would be most flattering and designed a beautiful and unique dress. She also helped me choose a one-of-a-kind bracelet from one of her jewelry designer friends. If you are looking for an impeccable bridal salon with uniformed sales people, this is not the place for you; but if you value a relaxed environment with an eccentric but extremely fun and talented designer, Blue is worth a visit.

I love Christina and Blue! She made a beautiful and completely affordable dress for my wedding. Her designs are modern, fun, elegant... she understands what works with your body type. Just trust in her!

My wife ordered six bridesmaids dresses from Blue, and we had a *very* negative experience. Several gripes: * My wife scheduled a fitting for a friend who lives a couple of hours away. The Blue ladies knew that the friend was traveling--yet the dress wasn't ready for her to try on when she arrived. * My wife asked for the dresses to be ready 2 weeks before the wedding , to send to bridesmaids who live in other states. The dresses were delivered 2 days before the wedding, leaving no time for alterations. * Many details were off. For example, the hems on 3 of the dresses were quite uneven. On others the zippers were poorly installed, such that they caused the material to bunch. * Of the six custom-made dresses, only 2 fit well One fit so badly that it was unwearable. We'd recommend working with them only if all the dresses can be tried on in the store. Also, give them a deadline that's way before the dress(es) are needed. Then you'll have time for last minute alterations to correct fit and sloppy craftsmanship.
