“I came to Dreams Collections to have an outfit designed for my wedding anniversary. Never having designed an outfit before – I was pretty worried I might screw this up on my own. Sakshi, the owner, was amazing! She was very friendly and help guide me through my style, favorite colors and helped me design something so unique! I definitely can’t wait to wear my outfit over and over again!
My husband also had a western suit designed for our event as well. We still get numerous amounts of compliments on our outfits and glowing reviews of the color, works and little details throughout the outfits. The quality, customer service, attention to detail is all part of what makes shopping at Dreams Collections such an easy choice for us. If you aren’t interested in designing an outfit their stock on the shelves are absolutely beautiful pieces.
For the quality and price tag I don’t think you could ever go wrong. The best part is, they have a tailor as well. So you definitely know your outfit will be a one of a kind fit for you!This store has definitely won me over as a loyal customer!”

I wore a red lehenga at the ceremony and a lehenga for the reception.We got our ceremony outfits from Dreams Collections in Artesia. I love Sakshi Aunty! She’s wonderful and can customize anything for you. I also ordered the bridesmaids anarkalis from there.
Sakshi Aunty from Dreams Collections told me which measurements to get from each bridesmaid and every single one of their outfits came out perfectly. That was a big relief as only one bridesmaid was local. We also got all of the groomsmens’ kurtas from Dreams Collections
I have always wanted to wear an Indian dress for my wedding. Sakshi’s dresses are extremely detailed and she helped me find exactly what I had been looking for within minutes. ( I had spent 4 months trying to have one custom ordered from India and it was nothing but stressful)
If you want to be treated kindly, at a more than reasonable price for your quality attire, and expect above-and-beyond treatment, you have to come here. I never felt pressured, and was given nothing but excellent advice.
1. I was immediately greeted and asked what I was looking for when I entered.
2. They were more than happy to choose a variety of dresses, while being mindful of the budget I had and not being pushy at all. Sakshi found exactly the dress I had pictured in my head within 10 minutes of being in the store.
3. The price I paid for my dress was so amazing, a friend of my step mother’s, who also used to sell formal indian wear, said the price was beyond believable and that the workmanship was perfect.
4. I was sized 3 times for my dress, each time I had help getting the dress on and off. The second to last time I was sized the dress was still to large so Sakshi paid to have it shipped back to India to be completely redone with less than a month to go. She made special arrangements with another woman to personally hold my dress while they were closed and when Sakshi was on vacation so I would be able to pick it up if I came by on my own or called while they were gone. The last time I was sized, she tailored my dress while I had lunch across the street. All of this was done without an additional cost- which I was extremely grateful for.
Sakshi aunty helped me bring my bridal outfit idea to life with the utmost ease! I came back empty handed from a shopping trip to India because I didn’t like anything readymade, and I was weary of getting anything customized since I wouldn’t be there to oversee it.
I traveled all the way to Dreams Collections and finally found an answer. Sakshi aunty was SO helpful and patient and tried to help me bring my idea to fruition. It ended up BEAUTIFUL and she kept me posted every step of the way. The colors, designs, and style were all totally customized, and she even came to the rescue with my jewelry! If you can go to her with an idea, she will definitely make it happen!
My (now) husband and I visited Dreams Collections back in January of 2016 when searching for wedding outfits. We walked around the area and visited several shops, but none of them compared to Dreams Collections in terms of the selection, customization, and amazing service that we received. I really appreciated from our first visit that there was no pressure to make us buy anything, and that the prices were set. I wasn’t interested in having to bargain on the prices, and lucky for us, everything was 50% off at the time.
One of the most difficult parts of finding wedding outfits for us was that we had chosen to work with colors that are not traditionally used in Indian weddings. Our colors were teal, purple, and silver, not the red and gold that is so common. Sakshi Aunty really helped in customizing our outfits and colors, and within a reasonable budget. In the end, we bought 3 outfits originally–my husbands sherwaani, my wedding lehenga, and a beautiful floor length anarkali gown.
When the outfits came in, Sakshi Aunty and her daughter-in-law were great with helping me to try everything on, and they also made alterations as needed on the spot for me. I never felt awkward or uncomfortable around them, and they even helped me with picking out shoes that would match. I also bought some matching jewelry from them.
Additionally, I needed bridesmaids outfits for my friends, and I again shopped around, hoping to find something with the right colors and within a decent price range for my friends. Although I visited about 6-7 shops, I again returned to Dreams Collections. Aunty was very understanding about the prices, and gave me the 50% option since I had first come to her when they had that going on. It was the perfect choice, because the colors would exactly match what I had already ordered. My bridesmaids were all scattered around the country, so it was also very much appreciated that she could work virtually with them to get the right sizes, etc.
At one of my last visits to Dreams Collections prior to the wedding, I fell in love with a new outfit that she had in the store, so much so, that it was agonizing to have to say no to it prior to my wedding. It also so happened that my anarkali gown was so heavy that we couldn’t easily perform our wedding dance in it, which led me to finally decide on getting one more outfit for the reception. Aunty once again came through for us. She literally customized the colors of that gown, sent it to India, and got it back for us within a week. It was just amazing that she was able to do that for us at the last minute, and we were so grateful to her.
At the end of the day, I am so happy that I went to Dreams Collections. I had originally planned on maybe making a trip to India, but given my time and budget constraints, this was the right option for me. For anyone looking to buy from them, you can’t go wrong. If something doesn’t come out right, they will fix it. The biggest thing that I would make note of as a prospective customer would be to go there well in advance of your wedding. Bridal outfits can take up to 2 months to make and in all of my visits I saw numerous instances when folks were coming in 3 weeks or less prior to their wedding for outfits. But I promise, if you give them the time they need, you won’t leave less than satisfied.
Beautiful lehenga purchased from Dreams Collection!
Everyone complimented and looked beautiful on me.
Thank you Sakshi ji.
Thank you so much for sharing in my and my loved ones joy, supporting us, and sharing our love by helping create my brother's wedding suite the way he visioned... Read More it. We really appreciate the help you've given in making our special day beautiful and memorable. Thank you for always (15 Years +) being there for Shelvin and I; we both loved the outfits you created for him and I for both days #Dreams Collections Pritesh Chaudhary -- feeling grateful with Sakshi Dosaj and Anup Dosaj at Dreams Collections.
This is a wonderful family owned business among the many dress shop options on pioneer blvd. Glad I decided to go with Dream Collection. Tejal helped with my selection process.... Read More I had no idea what I was going into buy. She was patient and super sweet through the whole process. The prices are reasonable and they have a wide selection of options. I would definitely recommend this store to family and friends.
To say I had a wonderful experience with Sakshi Aunty and her team at Dreams Collections is an understatement. From the way her and her husband, the employees, and her... Read More tailor all treated the process, it's an easy five stars from me. I had not one, but two different Covid Indian weddings on back to back weekends in August 2021 since the groom and I are from Punjab and Gujarat. We are also from Norcal and Socal so we had to plan everything long distance. Talk about A LOT of planning in a short amount of time. I mention this because I felt at complete ease being able to make the purchases I did in her store and coordinate everything. Without her I'm not sure what I would've done. Seriously.
It's impressive with everything she juggles the time she set aside towards making sure each of the pieces we purchased were nothing short of perfection. She is very diligent, professional, kind, and easy to work with and made my wedding process so much more stress free during a normally stressful time. The quality, fit, and pricing of all the pieces I purchased from Dreams Collections were spot on. All together I spent numerous hours at Sakshi Aunty's store and I, alongside my husband and the bridesmaids/ groomsmen felt very taken care of. I purchased my Pithi, Mehndi, and Garba lehengas all from her store. The materials all felt high quality and the embroidery work was beautiful as well. They were easy to wear, comfortable, and made me feel like a bride in them. I was very happy!
I also was able to choose from a wide selection of different fabric colors and styles for our 6 bridesmaids and his 12 groomsmen's outfits for the two different weddings. The outfits all turned out beautiful and they were shipped in a very timely fashion. They looked great on our wedding days and complimented each other and us perfectly!
Next, we purchased my groom's two Sherwanis from the store and they were exquisite. They have a wide range of men's outfits as well as women's. I loved the detailed work within the two pieces, the shawl he wore with the two groom outfits, the pants, and shoes (He said the shoes were especially comfortable compared to other ones he's worn in the past from different places). He really loved what he wore and it was all thanks to the store.
In store they also have accessories to complement each outfit. I thought the bridesmaids looked beautiful with their authentic matching jewelry sets from the store and the belt I wore for the Garba held up all night long.
My family also purchased some outfits from the store that they received complements on during the wedding. They were all very pleased.
Overall, even with what I just wrote, the pictures speak for themselves. I had an amazing experience with Sakshi Aunty and Dreams Collections and couldn't recommend them enough!
This is such a delayed review because I'm a procrastinator and I thought I had already submitted this, but the good news is I have more to review!
So, I... Read More had a COVID wedding and we went shopping for bridal outfits back in November 2020. We knew we wanted to work with Sakshi Aunty because she had done my sister's beautiful reception gown back in 2016 and I knew she did amazing custom work! My husband is 6'2 and so he always needs custom.
What I thought would be a rough shopping experience given the context we were in was exactly the opposite. Sakshi Aunty was so wonderful in letting us browse through the options, talk about what customizations could be added from things I liked in different outfits, how long things would take, etc. She was also realistic in letting us know what fabrics she could have shipped in time and what options wouldn't be possible - it was so great to have an honest, transparent conversation around bridal outfits during such an uncertain time.
My husband is very picky with clothes so I was nervous about what his experience would be --- Uncle was great in talking him through the Sherwani options, listening to what my husband liked and didn't like and coming up with different suggestions, and giving him advice.
Suffice it to say, we were so extremely pleased with our wedding outfits! The attention to detail was spot on (and this coming from a perfectionist). She worked within the budget I had allotted for and they were so great in giving us ideas when we didn't know what we wanted, but listening to us when we did. Also, the tailor is fantastic! Everything fit like a glove, and I keep looking back at our pictures remembering how lucky we were to have wedding outfits we loved in the middle of a pandemic
UPDATE: Fast forward to Aug 2021 and we had a family wedding that my husband needed outfits for. Given that we were still in the midst of a pandemic, and this was during the time when there was SO many delays in supply chains and shipping, we didn't know what we could have done in time. Again, Sakshi Aunty and Uncle were great! They told us exactly what fabrics we could choose from and what design options would be able to be made in time and she worked with us on different ideas to make sure the outfits still had that pop.
Dreams Collection is now my husband and I's go to place when we need Indian outfits ---- it's not easy to find a place that has the creative options, works within your budget, pays attention to detail, and knows how to make custom sizes for different body types.
Thanks for all that you do!
Sakshi aunty was amazing to work with! I came to her last July to purchase outfits for my engagement and wedding reception that October. I got two beautiful lehenghas and... Read More an engagement sherwani for my husband. It was so lovely to work with her, and she made sure my clothes fitted me perfectly. I also got some jewelry from her store that went well with my outfits. Wedding shopping can be pretty stressful, but Sakshi aunty made my experience very special.
