About the designer: Impression Bridal opened in 1986 out of a tiny 2,000 square foot office space. Their dresses are now sold all over the country in most major bridal retailers. Nick Yeh, their CEO, has been a part of the brand since the beginning. Their main designer, Ruben Cruz, also teaches a formal wear design class at the Fashion Institute of Technology in NYC.
Impression Bridal places a huge emphasis on fabric quality and a proper fit, ensuring that all of their brides are in high-quality dresses. They have a sharp eye on classic details, like Swarovski crystals and intricate beading. They also design bridesmaid dresses, mother-of-the-bride dresses, and even prom dresses. Impression Bridal focuses on taking the classic feel of a traditional wedding dress and giving it a modern look with things like funky cutouts and unique backs. They’ve made their name in the bridal industry by being innovative with design and keeping true to a one-of-a-kind look.
One of Impression Bridal’s major claims to fame is their “magic fit”, which involves a special kind of boning that is both comfortable and flattering to many different body types. Brides of any size will be able to find a flattering Impression Bridal dress they love. Their website even features a fit guide that helps you pick your body type and get matched with dresses that will flatter you.

Woman Getting Married Says: Impression Bridal has a wide range of silhouettes, which we love—that means that any body type can find a dress they look and feel good in. They also have an impeccable eye for lace and beadwork, which gives their dresses a major elegance factor. Their convertible dresses would be super fun if you want to class it up during the ceremony and bust a move at the reception! Everything has a pretty-yet-unique feel to it; with an Impression Bridal dress, you definitely wouldn’t have to worry about looking too similar to your cousin who got married two weeks prior.
