There are those special occasions—the moments you remember for the rest of your life—when you not only want a beautiful dress, you want the right dress. You want something that will enhance your beauty, showcase your best features and make you look and feel like a queen. It will be a gown seemingly made especially for you. Finding the right formal dress like this isn’t something you just do on the internet—you need and want to shop local, so you’ll need and want to shop at PreVue Formal & Bridal.

While PreVue Bridal is new to Grossmont Center, having opened in May 2018, it has earned a well-deserved reputation for quality and top-notch customer service that it’s built since 1984. The largest bridal and formalwear store on the West Coast, PreVue has been voted the number-one prom store in 2017 and 2018 by Pageant Planet, and is an official evening gown sponsor for Miss California USA, providing the gowns for the Miss USA Competition. PreVue also works with other state organizations in the Miss USA system—in fact, in 2017, PreVue dressed seven different state Miss USA winners!

With these credentials, it’s no surprise that women of all ages travel from all over the nation to find their dream dress at PreVue. When they arrive at this full-service store, they immediately know they will find their perfect gown because of the amazing depth and breadth of the selection available. This megastore carries more than 16,000 dresses in stock. It’s a one-stop shop for gowns, as well as accessories, suitable for any formal occasion. Proms, weddings, homecomings and winter formals, military balls, pageants, and quinceaneras—whatever your special event is, you will find the perfect dress. The wedding department is especially abundant with plenty of beautiful options. Not only can you find a wedding gown, you can also outfit your entire bridal party, from flower girls to bridesmaids to mother-of-the-bride and mother-of-the-groom.

PreVue carries the top prom and bridal brands in the store, such as Mon Cheri, Allure, Maggie Sottero, and Sherri Hill. PreVue has great relationships with its manufacturers, ensuring your gown will be of the highest quality. You will also be able to find dresses that reflect the latest fashions because their purchasing and design staff travel nonstop around the United States selecting and buying the hottest styles to bring to their customers and the newest gowns off the runway. From florals and jewel tones or sequins and satin, the possibilities are endless. Whatever kind of dress you’re looking for, you never have to worry because a limited budget doesn’t mean limited options.

The wide selection of gowns is only part of the PreVue story.  The PreVue experience is more than just finding the perfect dress. Your entire family can come in and be part of the fun—it can become a cherished moment for everyone. This is one of the many reasons why PreVue has built such a loyal clientele. For many women, shopping at PreVue has become a family tradition. Often times brides come in and say they remember shopping for their prom dress at PreVue. Mothers are overheard telling their daughters that they bought their prom dress here, too!

That familial spirit is also reflected in PreVue’s staff, where customer service is paramount. The PreVue team is like family. Having worked together for years, they share a common passion for their customers and their careers. This commitment to excellence is reflected in the personalized attention they provide each customer. Team members provide expert assistance and advice to help select a gown you’ll love, and they can also guide you in finding the right accessories to complete your look. PreVue has a large variety of shoes, handbags and jewelry to choose from, including dyeable shoes and bags so you can have the exact shade you want to complement your dress. The team goes the extra mile to ensure you end up with a one-of-a-kind outfit that is uniquely just for you.

La Mesa residents are fortunate that PreVue is right in their backyard; it’s a wonderful opportunity to buy local for your next big event without having to drive all over to visit several stores to find something you like. You can even make a day of it, visiting one of Grossmont Center’s great restaurants after your shopping trip then follow it up with a movie or one of the center’s special events.
