SAY NO TO THE DRESS "Bridals by Lori worked with Toni Federici to block the sale of a lace veil I wanted for my dress after I was offered it at a lower price by another bridal shop! I found a veil I loved that matched my dress and BBL's sale price was $1785 which was unaffordable for me. I located 3 shops in Atlanta that carried Toni Federici and had this particular veil. One of those shops offered me the veil for $1100. Because I love my BBL consultant, I contacted them to give BBL a chance to price match. BBL's responded by slandering the shop stating the veil was probably a knock off because only BBL carried the designer and the further attempted to insult me by saying "but they understand if my finances" would require me to purchase the other veil. I responded by saying that I confirmed that three other Atlanta boutiques carry this designer. I later received a call from the boutique offering the veil for $1100. The owner asked did I try to price match at BBL because now the designer TONI FEDERICI is BLOCKING THE SALE!!! BBL, where I have already PURCHASED my wedding dress. Bridal by Lori who are supposed to be assisting in making my day a memorable one for all the right reasons, blocked the sale of a veil accompanying my dress when I was kind enough to offer Bridals by Lori the opportunity to price match!!! Obviously, customer service is not key here. If my purchase were not finalized, BRIDALS BY LORI nor TONI FEDERICI would have any part of my special day! This was not only a poor exercise of customer service but character."

Of all of the bridal salons I have been too, I had by far the worst experience at Bridals By Lori. There was such an overwhelming sense of pressure to buy on your first visit for a "day 1" discount, that I purchased the fourth dress I put on....even though I wasn't sure about it. I confused the pressure with excitement. I went downstairs to look at bridesmaids dresses and burst into tears. I knew I had made a mistake. I went back upstairs and one of the sales women (I think it was Lori) had me re-try on the dress. In the dressing room when I asked if I could cancel, she told me it would cost $450.00 to cancel. She told me that they would graciously allow me to exchange it for another dress (wow! Thanks). I slept on it and decided there was one I liked better, so I exchanged it for a more expensive dress out of my budget so that I didn't hate my dress. I am now stuck with a dress i have to sell for a loss that will devastate my wedding budget because I couldn't bear to spend $450 for a 10 minute mistake. PLEASE Do not make the same mistake I made.

My bridesmaid dresses were bough through Bridals by Lori and I'm pretty happy with the experience. We had been around to a couple of the other main places around town and I was actually pretty surprised to see that BBL had lower prices for some of the same dresses. Our saleslady was understanding and patient. She chipped in advice without being over-opinionated. The only issue we had was with the size suggestions. They had been measured at one of the other shops and the size that was suggested to order was way off what we had heard before. One of the girls got re-measured and it turns out that there was a pretty big mistake. It's a good thing that she knew better or that would have been a big problem. Other than that, it's been pretty run of the mill. The payments are flexible and the email communications are through. The dresses just came in so all has been good.

I am a very unhappy bridesmaid! When I received my georgous dress, it was way too big. Ellen, the consultant, agreed that the dress was big. However, she did not want to be helpful at all. She offered to re-measure me but would not offer any adjustment in alteration fees so in my opinion, it was pointless to allow her to re-measure me again. She stated that I knew the size that I signed for. She also said that she has women all the time who still insist on the smaller size. I told her that I was unaware of that option and relied on her because she was supposed to know what she was doing. She then stated that it was not her fault if the Chinese kids cut the dress incorrectly. Really?! What kind of statement is that?!! At that point, I became angry.

We went in for a MOB trunk show -that we RSVP'ed for. But, the show had been canceled without notifying us. Since we drove all the way there, we decided to take a look around in the bridal suite. We had a wonderful consultant (Megan) assist us and help me find my perfect reception dress!!! The problem came when ordering. The sales lady at the desk would not let me order the size I wanted to -so she ordered a size bigger. Now that the dress is in -it is HUGE. They obviously wanted the alterations money. We are using another seamstress for alterations b/c we're so annoyed with Bridals by Lori. Our seamstress said that they dress is so well-made it will be costly for her to take it in 3 inches!!!
I was given tons of compliments on how stunning the dress looked!

The only thing I can say that is a slight negative is that the dresses are a bit on the expensive side, but they have a great selection and the dresses are beautiful. The staff was very knowledgeable and helpful, and you really can't beat the experience. Their in-house alterations were also very friendly and did a great job and we had a great time each time we were there. My mom and mother-in-law also got their dresses there and both looked amazing.

BRIDALS BY LORI IS A SCAM! BBL ordered me the wrong dress and refused to admit fault! I tried on two VERY similar dresses the day I purchased my gown. When I said yes to a dress I had pinned on Pinterest over a year ago, I was confident that was the dress that would be ordered. Somehow, the similar one was pulled and ordered instead. Since I signed off on the style numbers, there is no room in negotiating the mixup. Another thing to be wary of- BBL has their own style numbers. They do not correspond with the designers' style numbers. No other salon does this! It makes it impossible to look up the dress that was ordered on your sales receipt. They gave me the option of either forfeiting the 60% deposit I put down and ordering the correct dress, or selling the dress I purchased online and re-ordering the correct dress. Neither option requires any responsibility on the salon's behalf for ordering the wrong dress. I have my dress listed online and I'm currently attempting to sell it. Since I did not want to re-order from BBL, I called around to see who else had it. Another salon in town is willing to sell it to me for $1,000 less because of the problems I've already had. I'm afraid to negotiate with BBL on the price I previously paid because I've read about them calling the designer to block the sale at other salons. Overall, this is not just the worst experience I've had while planning my wedding, it's one of the worst experiences of my life. I've lost sleep over this experience and have put off wedding planning recently because of how horrible they've made me feel. Everything about BBL and my wedding dress shop has been disheartening and deflating. I refinanced my car in order to be able to afford this dress, and it's not even the right one! A salon as big as BBL should admit fault and take the minor hit on their mistake!

Had a great experience dress shopping! You give them your budget and they tell you what rooms contain the dresses in that range. You get your own consultant who helps you try on all dresses as well as keeps up with you for each fitting. I would highly recommend them!

Had a wonderful experience getting my bridal gown from Bridals by Lori! Monty & Lori were there the day I tried on dresses and my sister & bridesmaids had a ton of fun taking selfies with them. They were so nice in person! Monty did my hair in a quick updo so I could get a feel for how the dress looked with the hair style I wanted. It was fairly crowded when we went (on a Saturday) so be sure to make an appointment if going on the weekend! Maya was an amazing consultant because she encouraged me to try on completely different things to help visualize myself on my wedding day. She also asked great questions about each dress I tried on to help me narrow down what I loved and didn't like. It helped me to not feel so overwhelmed thinking about how beautiful they all are and what to choose. She never pressured me and always respected my budget when it came to her gown suggestions. Also, I said yes that day but came back the next day to pay for it - I am so glad I gave myself a night to sleep on the decision! I loved my dress and they were so nice when I needed to come back and visit it a few months later - Robin was super sweet! The dress that came literally fit like a glove! I needed zero alterations (minus the bustle) which was a huge relief because I've heard how expensive alterations can be! Kudos to the team who measured me for placing my order! Getting the bustle & cups sewn in was an easy process as well, however mine wasn't super complicated. All in all a great experience with so many options at all different price points!!

I went to Bridals by Lori not expecting to find any thing (mostly because their dresses were out of my price range), but we decided to go and check out the sale rack anyways. Thanks to the help of my consultant I found an amazing dress (within my budget)! I never felt pressured to push my budget. My consultant was great and helped me figure out how to do my hair and accessories.

I experienced the worst possible customer service at Bridals by Lori. I made my appointment weeks in advance, however when I arrived me and my party waited 20 minutes while they figured out who I would work with. My salesperson Marta was incredibly uneducated about the stores inventory. I said I wanted a true mermaid. She showed me two gowns before exclaiming that they didn't really have any mermaid gowns because they weren't really in style. It wasn't until one of the managers came over and took over the appointment that I was able to find the perfect gown. I put a 50% deposit on my almost $8,000 dress. My next complaint is that we attempted to make a payment of $957 (which we were invoiced for) on Friday October 11th. The salesperson mistakenly ran my fiancé's debit card for $1900, tried to fix it, and then the amount for $957. So now because there is a bank holiday on Monday we do not have access to almost $2000 for the better part of the week. On top of that the manager I spoke with Flo was completely unapologetic and rude when I expressed my frustration with the error. She responded with, "well what do you want me to do about it?" My dress is amazing, but the customer service at Bridals by Lori is terrible. I would never recommend them.

Bridal by Lori's is a really cool store to go to as a bride! You have a lot of great choices and the people that work there are all very nice. I got my dress over a year before my wedding and I wish I would have waited. I bought an expensive Lazaro wedding gown that was a few seasons old. Unfortunately, not knowing anything about dresses, I paid full price for a designer dress that was about to no longer be sold since it was that many seasons old. I paid an extra $250 to have the bodice shorten and, once again not knowing a lot about dresses, did not realize they did not take out enough despite the fact they took my measurements. This caused an unbelievable amount of issues when I got my dressed altered (about $1,000 in alterations). The alteration specialist even questioned if this was a new gown or not due to the fact it was missing some typical Lazaro lining and the "new wedding dress" stiffness the dress should have. All in all, I would suggest shopping at Bridals by Lori because they have a great selection but do your research on the dress and make sure you pick your dress up there and try it on there right away. That way if you paid extra for anything and it is not100% correct, they can fix it.

They truly are amazing people. I went with no intention of purchasing a dress just for the experience and to look, it was 16 months before my wedding I didn't fully know what I wanted but they found it and it is the most amazing dress I could ever imagine. They are exceptional people and and exceptional company! If you can afford it please buy your dress here!

I cannot say enough good things about Bridals by Lori. My girlfriend and I are planning a commitment ceremony for April and did our dress shopping together. We worked with Haylee and she was phenomenal. We wanted to make sure our dresses looked great together but fit each of our personal style. We got feedback from Robyn and Lori which was super exciting. We did our first visit as a preliminary shop to see what styles we liked and could afford. We went to a few other stores but nothing beat the atmosphere and service provided by Haylee and all the staff. Ultimately we both purchased our dresses from Bridals by Lori. Both were in budget ($2500). We had the best time and. Can't wait to start our fittings!

I absolutely loved my time at Bridals by Lori. They were patient with me when I had to change my appointment date and were easy to get in touch with. I went on a trunk show day so they were busy and I had to wait about 10 minutes before my consultant was ready, but the receptionist showed us the closets and let us start looking for dresses while we waited, so I didn't feel they wasted our time. My consultant was extremely respectful of my budget (~$1000) and encouraged me to try a variety of dresses since I didn't know what I wanted. Lori even stopped by to tell me how much she liked my dress and was very kind. They had a very wide selection, even at my price range (they have a sale rack!). My consultant even called me a few weeks later to let me know about a trunk show for the vendor of an accessory I had looked at in the store. I never felt rushed or pressured and really enjoyed the whole experience. I will absolutely take each of my sisters there when they get engaged.

I had tried on dresses elsewhere but didn't find the wedding dress shopping "experience" until I went to Bridals by Lori. I drove from Virginia Beach to Atlanta to find my dream dress and I did! I was able to say yes to the perfect dress ... they also helped me pick out my veil and a gorgeous headband. Everyone at the wedding, including my groom, commented on how amazing the dress looked. I highly recommend Bridals by Lori and their alterations services (I only had to have one set of alterations!).

WORST EXPERIENCE OF MY LIFE!!!! I came to bridals by Lori for my FIRST bridal appointment ever with a whole bunch of friends of family and I have never been more humiliated and embarrassed in life. I am NOT a big girl by ANY means but they had hardly any dress sizes that would fit me...... like really? Im just a size 10..... I was mortified....I was able to get into a few but apparently if your not a stick your not welcome here! They should put a sign on the front door that says size 2 only. VERY upset and disappointed and the worst part about it was the lady who was helping me wasnt apologetic (not that its her fault) but she was like "oh well, we dont have anything else for you, we only carry 2 size 10's, thats too bad."

Everything about my wedding was perfect, but absolutely NO thanks to BBL. I bought my dress there about 8 months before my wedding. I happened to fit into the floor model so I bought that one. Here's where I made my mistake - I should have taken my dress home and gone to a professional seamstress to do the alterations. Instead, I relied on BBL's word that they did excellent wedding dress alterations.

My dress was a very simple Rivini gown, So I assumed taking it in would be simple. At my second fitting, there was a giant pouch in the front of my dress (like where my belly would go if I had one). I pointed out this big pouch and BBL said they couldn't make the dress any tighter because it might rip. Mind you, I had to pull my dress up at least every 20 seconds to keep my chest covered. The dress was WAY too lose.

I spoke to the manager later that day and explained the situation. Her response? 1. "I spoke with Lori and she told me the dress is made that way." 2 "Rule of thumb, if you're buying a wedding dress and it has a pouch like that, you shouldn't buy it." 3. "I can't return your dress to you to take it elsewhere because our tailors take the dresses home with them so we don't even have your dress in our possession."

All of these responses were unacceptable. After I pushed, the manager promised they would take it in some more. I came back (2 weeks before my day), and the dress was exactly the same. THANK GOD, I had some money left in the budget for emergencies. I paid another tailor $500 to fix my dress. I literally picked it up on my way out of town for the wedding.

I would NEVER recommend using BBL for alterations. NEVER EVER EVER!!!! I can't believe they treated me the way they did and almost ruined by wedding dress. Maybe because they sell such expensive dresses, they didn't think much of my $4000 dress, but that dress meant everything to me and not knowing whether it would actually fit on my wedding day caused me such stress and grief.

When I called Bridals by Lori and told them my budget, they were nice but sweetly told me that the gowns on the regular floor started at the top of my price range and that they would likely have trouble finding anything for me. I thought that would be that but then the salesperson told me about the "outlet" section of the store where they have "as is" sample sale dresses from previous seasons that are significantly marked down. I figured why not check it out and made the appointment.

Went to the appointment with my family in tow (mom, sis/MOH, future mother-in-law, and grandma). When we showed up, we were met by the consultant Michele, who was bubbly, sweet, and fun right from the start. Since this was my first bridal gown experience, I had some ideas in mind but wasn't sure where to start. She took me to a small room where there were a few racks of sample sale dresses and we started picking some out. Michele was awesome and super patient as I modeled different dresses for my family, finally narrowing it down to 2. That was when she really stepped it up, putting my hair up and picking out different veils for me to try, getting different jewelry and shoes to match, and trying different hair pieces. She didn't complain when I went way over the appointment time as my family and I debated between and retried the top 2 dresses and took millions of pictures (and shed a few tears). In the end, even though I hadn't planned on buying anything that day, the 3rd dress I tried on was definitely "the one" and I bought it on the spot. Michele truly made our experience awesome from start to finish and I'd recommend her (and the outlet section) to any bride without a super high budget. My dress ended up being ~$1K and they even threw in a free pair of dress shoes because I bought it on the same day. Dress and shoes, check!

Overall, loved Bridals by Lori and would recommend it to anyone.

When I called Bridals by Lori and told them my budget, they were nice but sweetly told me that the gowns on the regular floor started at the top of my price range and that they would likely have trouble finding anything for me. I thought that would be that but then the salesperson told me about the "outlet" section of the store where they have "as is" sample sale dresses from previous seasons that are significantly marked down. I figured why not check it out and made the appointment.

Went to the appointment with my family in tow (mom, sis/MOH, future mother-in-law, and grandma). When we showed up, we were met by the consultant Michele, who was bubbly, sweet, and fun right from the start. Since this was my first bridal gown experience, I had some ideas in mind but wasn't sure where to start. She took me to a small room where there were a few racks of sample sale dresses and we started picking some out. Michele was awesome and super patient as I modeled different dresses for my family, finally narrowing it down to 2. That was when she really stepped it up, putting my hair up and picking out different veils for me to try, getting different jewelry and shoes to match, and trying different hair pieces. She didn't complain when I went way over the appointment time as my family and I debated between and retried the top 2 dresses and took millions of pictures (and shed a few tears). In the end, even though I hadn't planned on buying anything that day, the 3rd dress I tried on was definitely "the one" and I bought it on the spot.

All I can say is wow. Going to Bridals by Lori was the most amazing experience. It was well worth the weekend trip! I will never forget the amazing experience I had there. In one day I got my wedding gown, bridesmadis dresses, and my mom got her dress. It was a truly wonderful experience. I got "jacked up" by Monte which was awesome! The dress I was in love with in a picture just wasnt right on. Monte went and pulled a very similar dress and made some minor adjustments and then it was just magically perfect! I bought a Lazaro gown. Lazaro was there. I got to meet him and he hand drew me a sketch of my dress right there infront of me to keep. If you looking for a beautiful dress and a one of a kind experience, Bridals by Lori is the place to go.

I could not speak highly enough of Bridals By Lori! It was everything I wanted and more. I made my appointment about 6 months in advance and received the best customer service on the day of. My sales lady was Melissa and she was so helpful in finding me a dress that would flatter my figure (I was plus size at the time). I also got "jacked up" by Monte and met Lori, her mom and Robin. It was such an out of body experience! When I went back for my fittings they were so easy to work with and are perfectionist at making alterations! The cost and travel are well worth the amazing experience I had!

Bridays by Lori has the most amazing dresses. After trying on dresses at several different stores, we took the trip to Georgia to Say Yes to the Dress and that is what we did. The first dress my daughter put on, she fell in love with. It brought me to tears, so I immediately knew that was "the dress." It was absolutely beautiful and fit her personality. Once they put the veil on her for the final touch, that was all it took. She was not leaving that store without that dress. It was stunning on her. There is a link on the Say Yes to the Dress Facebook page if you would like to view it. It is under Rosie Metcalf posted a link and you can see what kind of dresses they have at Bridals by Lori. They were great to work with and always welcomed our questions and worked with us on our fitting appointments since we were coming from out of town. For the most amazing dresses for any occasion, you will definitely want to visit their store.

The service I got here was terrible! I told the consultant that I was on a tight budget, but if I found my dream dress I'd find a way to make it work. I didn't give closed-ended budget, but said that I'd like to start with the less expensive dresses then work my way up until I found what I wanted.

Speaking of what I wanted, I didn't know. It was my first time trying on wedding dresses, and I hadn't tried on anything fancier than a little black dress since my highschool prom. So I needed some advice, some assistance. She offered none. I asked her to pull a few dresses that she thought would look good on me, but all that made it to the fitting room were the ones my mom and I pulled.

For being "the largest bridal salon in the country" as they claim, they did not have a large range of options. I felt like I saw the same four or five dresses just by different designers and with different embellishments. I was very interested in a tea length gown. The only had one in the clearance section being sold as-is.

Honestly, I think that I got this terrible service for two reasons. 1. I didn't have a huge budget and 2. it was Sunday and they don't film on Sundays. Needless to say I did not purchase a dress.

You can find equally beautiful dresses at any number of other salons. Don't bother with Lori's. I was leary of David's Bridals, but I got amazing service there. While I did not buy my dress at David's, the consultant did help me to find a style that looked amazing and to figure out just what type of dress I want.

I got a Lazaro here, and it was magical. I had the most wonderful time there with my family and came out with the perfect dress. You can find everything you need there floor by floor. My mother in law got her dress there as well, and they were great. Too bad Monty was not there. Everyone should buy their wedding dress here because it is so magical. I wish they had more floors with design, cakes, favors---everything you need for wedding. Would be so much less stressful and enjoyable.

They are ALL ABOUT THE MONEY and could care less about their customers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I purchased 2 wedding dresses from this store and paid a $7,500 deposit. Unfortunately, I'm in the middle of a major domestic violence situation and have been in hiding for over 30 days. I can't return to my own home or city. I can't even work for fear that my ex-fiance will find me and kill me. When I called to explain my situation to the Bridals by Lori staff, I was told that unless I pay the remaining balance, both dresses and my $7,500 deposit would be lost. The staff and owner showed no concern for my current situation and refused to work with me in any way. I understand not getting my deposit back but was hoping to work out getting one dress so that I could sell it for much needed money. I am very displeased with their lack of human consideration.

First and foremost, Melissa our bridal consultant was so intuitive to what I was looking for and wonderful to work with. She watched my reactions and let us try on everything we wanted to and just when I was starting to feel discouraged, she turned it all around and reassured me we would find it, Melissa actually found my Lazaro gown and I was in tears before she even had it all the way zipped up. With that said, the appointment was everything I had dreamed of and more, with family by my side, it was perfect. The girl assisting us with Bridesmaids gowns was truly sweet as well, adored her! Now the post appointment experience is reason for lower scoring... I found the alterations department and customer service area to be quite unhelpful and at times, just plain rude. No one was helping in shoe department, and I almost felt as if I was bothering the service department for assistance. The alterations department canceled my appointment 2 days before flying into Atlanta due to family emergenct. I completely understand things come up and changes need to be made. However, I live in central florida and I was flying in just for this appointment. Needless to say, after lengthy discussions and insistant that something needs to be done, I was recommended to Linda at TK Designs for alterations who were incredibly sweet and had worked with Lazaro gowns. Customer service was top notch and they made you feel like family there. It was like my grandmother making alterations and she was insistent on making sure it was perfect. We spent close to $8K at Bridals by Lori and I was expecting over the top service, but it left a lot to be desired. It made me feel like I was just another bride. After I found the gown and paid for it, it was like I was kicked to the curb. :(

Where do I begin…. I had 2 totally different experiences at Bridals By Lori. I will start with the good. The bridal department was excellent. They were very accommodating to my family and I. I worked with Flo. She was the best! She kept me up to date with the latest with my dress ordering process.

Now, lets get to the alterations department…. When my dress came in (which was 6 months prior to my wedding), it was too short. When I placed the order for my dress I asked if the length was going to be long enough because 1) I 'm 5'8 and 2) I knew I was going to be wearing high heels. I was ensured that my dress was going to be long enough. Well this was not the case when it came in. I asked the head of the alterations department (Liz) what could be done. She was VERY rude!!! She told me the only option I had was to try to sell my dress online and rush order another dress or to wear flats….. Uh no!! Who tells a bride that??? It's not like I had just purchased a $5 shirt; this dress was not cheap at all. I could literally see my ankles AND it was uneven…. Needless to say, I had to go back upstairs to see Flo who was therefore able to speak with the designer of my dress to see what could be done. Flo had no problem finding out my options. I was able to order additional fabric for the dress and get it sown onto it.

I am so happy I didn't listen to Liz. I don't know if she just didn't care or if this was a part of some plan to get even more money out of me. She didn't even try to see what could of been done to my dress…

BE CAREFUL!Great experience buying,alterations were a NIGHTMARE!First fitting we were told the gap under her breasts would be fixed,oversized cups would fit,it would be taken in on the sides,hemmed & bustled.The next fitting the gap still under her breasts,fabric on the cups collapsed when touched.She called me in tears.Called Liz,the head of alterations.Liz PROMISED that the dress would be perfect.Returned for the final fitting.It fit or so we thought.That fitting she gave them a sash which was to be added.Picked up the dress the following week.Tried on her dress when she arrived at my home the Thurs. before the wedding.What a mess!The sash had enough ribbon to wrap around the dress twice but it was cut so short there was a big, crooked gap exposing the zipper,black against white.It had been tacked to the lace,with each move it pulled tearing it.HUGE MISTAKE for the bustle.Button at the base of the zipper on the outside of the dress, but the ribbon to attach was sewn UNDER the bottom lining.When attached it made an upside-down "V" of the back of the dress showing the crinoline and underwear.I was able to get an appt.at 4:30 Thurs. at a local shop.She couldn't believe that anyone would send out a dress with these mistakes.She could have it ready late Fri. Repaired everything,including the crooked seams that hadn’t even been pressed.My daughter was beautiful on her wedding day.The tears over the dress had passed.Liz PROMISED it would be ok,thanks to Pat it was!After several phone calls I finally found someone who cared enough about the disastrous alterations to talk to me.A month after the wedding,many emotional phone calls & emails later,I finally received a check for $373 for the repair work,NO refund for any of the botched alterations, NOT the bustle,the sash,the crooked seams.NO apology to us,for me missing the beginning of the rehearsal dinner because I had to pick up her dress and NOTHING for destroying the entire day before my ONLY daughters wedding.

I absolutely loved all my visits to Bridals By Lori. I went to try on dresses with several of my family members. We were greeted right away and taken up to the Bridal floor. We were on the elevator with Lori's mother and she was so sweet. She introduced herself and took us to meet Melissa, my consultant. She also came back several times during my appointment to check in on us. During my appointment, Melissa listened to my thoughts and ideas and helped me pull dresses. Melissa was very professional and helped me into the gowns. She offered thoughts and unbiased opinions of the fit and style of the dresses. In the end, I found the dress of my dreams and I was able to "Say Yes To The Dress!!". Lori also helped "jack me up" and complete my look. It was definitely the highlight of my day! After picking out my dress, Robin measured me and got us checked out. Everybody was just so nice and helpful. I don't have a single negative thing to say. We returned several times for fittings and alterations. At one time I returned to try on the sample with my mother's veil to see how it would match. On this visit Flo helped me and she is the sweetest person!. She made me feel great. The alterations department were also professional and did a wonderful job. On my final fitting, I FINALLY got to meet Monte and it was everything I imagined. He is a HOOT and was so much fun to deal with.

Loved the whole experience. Megan was my consultant and she was great. I went in only looking for one style dress, Megan and Flow put me in something completely different and I fell in love.

Bridals by Lori had a lovely selection and I found a beautiful dress, but I felt I over-paid. When I decided on a dress, I was encouraged to order the dress with the bust opened up (because I have a large chest and it would be easier to adjust the chest by taking it in a small bit) and that cost an additional $150.00 to order the dress with a larger open chest. So once the dress arrived, I had to get the chest taken in at least 4 inches....so I was extremely annoyed I paid way too much to have a service done, only to pay EVEN MORE to have it reversed. After the hemmed the bottom of the dress, it was still too long and I was tripping over it all night at my reception. The dress department was great. Their alterations department was awful. If you want an awesome selection of dresses, go to Bridals by Lori, however, once you find the dress, purchase it else where. $2500 for the dress plus $500 for alterations and it still wasn't right.

We ordered jewelry, shoes, and other accessories from Bridals by Lori, and I am really happy. I wasn't so sure about ordering everything from a website, but the quality was fantastic. Everything came quickly and well packaged. My bridesmaids love the earrings, and everything matched perfectly with my dress. It was definitely a big win.

CAUTION! This company steals from its clients and hides behind a 24 hour policy where if your dress doesn't come in on time, you STILL have to pay for it!!! I lost nearly 5,000.00. Ultimately I was forced to buy a sample dress off the sale rack at another store a few weeks before my wedding. I normally do not write negative replies but I do not want another bride to go through what I have.

The ladies that assisted me were extremely nice and great at their jobs. I told my consultant exactly what I did and didn't want and after trying all of my owns picks and being unimpressed she pulled one dress (that actually had some of my "do not wants") and it was perfect. I couldn't have been happier. She really listened to what I was saying but also managed to get what I wasn't saying and figured out what I needed. I drove 10hrs to shop their and it was absolutely worth it.

Bridals by Lori was not only an awesome experience, but they treated me like a princess. The way you see the staff treat the brides on "Say Yes to the Dress" is the exact same way they treat any other bride. My consultant was Majah (spelling?) and she was so nice and knew what I was looking for in about 10 seconds. I actually didn't even pull my dress when I looked through the stock-she pulled it before I even got to it. They work so hard to make your dream dress shopping experience a real treat and something to remember forever. They also kept me up to date on the status of my dress and I never worried about the most important purchse of the wedding day shopping! I love those people and am so glad and thankful I went there to find my dress. :)

I had a great experience with Bridals by Lori. My mom and I were in Atlanta for the weekend from Nashville. I really wanted my sister to be able to come with me when I tried on dresses, but she had just started her freshman year of college that week in Alabama and was unable to make it. However, she was able to see the dresses I tried on by logging onto the webcam that looks onto the "runway" in the salon. Very cool.

I told my consultant, Lindee, what I was looking for, then went through picking out some dresses to try on. Lindee picked a couple as well. The last one I tried on was one of the ones she had picked, and it was perfect.

Overall, just a great experience finding and purchasing my wedding dress, which brought me back with my bridesmaids for their dresses, and again for my shoes for the wedding.

A co-worker of mine suggested I check this bridal shop out because the original dress I ordered from a different place turned out to be a hideous mess and I was one week out from my event. My initial impression of Bridal by Lori was that they were rude and snotty. I was standing in the reception area and a worker walked up, made eye contact with me, then walked away. She didn't ask if I had an appointment nor did she acknowledge that I was standing in front of her.
I finally found someone who was slightly more pleasant than the first and she in turn directed me to Krystle. Krystle helped me out in a major way! I walked out with a beautiful dress and I'm glad that I didn't walk out of the shop after my first impression of the place.

Was very pleased with Bridals by Lori and my consultant, Marta. I was slightly overwhelmed walking in with the TV cameras and I think that is why they put me with Marta in a room further away from the hustle and bustle. Marta was wonderful about selecting dresses within my budget. She didn't show me a single one that was more expensive than what I requested. She was patient, efficient and really listened to what I was looking for. The selection really can't be beat. They truly have the largest selection in all of Georgia. Given the reputation, I was told I'd never find something around my $2,500 budget, but I did! LOTS of choices! I tried on less than 15 dresses and purchased one that very afternoon.

I DID run into some issues with alterations. I was given a time frame my dress would arrive and I called the store one weekend to check if it was in (I had family in town and was hoping to show them) but was told my dress hadn't arrived. Less than a week letter I received a letter stating my dress had been in for over a month, I wasn't returning phone calls and my final balance was LATE. I was furious! I had 4 alterations appointments and really cut it close. It took more than 2 months to get everything done. The final alteration (crooked belt) actually had to be in store while I waited because I was leaving for my wedding in 24 hours. I was a little upset with how tight my dress was and the seamstress told me I'd gained weight and to wear spanx! I'm a size 0 and was certain I hadn't put on weight (I was weighing myself daily to be sure!) But, it was too late to change anything drastic, so - I drank a lot of water and ate a ton of fruit and was able to lose some water weight. But, I STILL almost passed out after the ceremony. I had to undo the corset and all bands to make it through the reception. A little disappointing to say the least. I'd recommend going elsewhere for alterations.

Bridals by Lori is a wonderful place to buy a wedding dress and bridesmaid dresses! Bridals by Lori has a great selection of designer dresses that I could not find at any store near where I lived. My consultant was helpful and pulled dresses that were flattering to my body and within my budget. My mother bought her MOB dress there as well because they had such a great selection! On the day of my wedding every one of my bridal fashions meshed well together and looked fabulous!

I absolutely loved this place! I am a plus size gal and I have to say even though I couldnt technically fit into any of the samples, the ladies made me feel soooo good! Marta was my lady and she was so sweet and really helped me narrow down what looked best on me. I think every lady who worked there came by and offered great suggestions on what looked best on me. I ended up with an amazing Lazaro gown (it was during a Lazao trunk show and Lazaro Perez was there himself) and I felt like I was treated like royalty. I would go back in a heartbeat!

AWFUL, AWFUL, AWFUL!

Bridals by Lori has the absolute worst customer service I have ever been an unfortunate witness to!

I ordered a bridesmaid dress from them back in January that was expected to arrive sometime in March/April. I never recieved a call, email, or anything from them when they did arrive and the only reason I found out they were in was because the bride asked me if I had gotten my dress yet. Additionally, I was originally planning on picking up my dress the weekend of the bachelorette party in Atlanta (I live in New Jersey), but plans changed and I needed to change my order to have it shipped. After a week of calling the shop (I did not call on weekends as their website expressly states NOT TO CALL ON WEEKENDS, THEY WON'T PICK UP. Ridiculous. Hire a person to answer the phones...) with no one answering and leaving messages, no one has contacted me either on the phone or via email.

I personally got married last December and bought my dress at one of the big box bridal designer's stores and recieved far better customer service than at this "high-end" bridal boutique. You're paying a premium price for their products and should recieve exceptional customer service, but this is not the case at Bridals by Lori.

If you are a bride, think twice about getting your wedding or birdesmaids dresses here. Their utter lack of communication and customer service is, quite frankly, embarassing. They are more than willing to take your money, but once that is done, they could care less about their customers. You'd be better off shopping somewhere else...

My experience in the store was wonderful. Great. Fantastic. Signed the paperwork and waited for my dress to be shipped to me at home. In short, I bought a $5000 dress and received worse service than I did the last time I bought food at a drive-through with a $1.10 purchase!

At multiple times previous to the arrival of my dress, I had spoken with multiple employees to ensure that they would WAIT until the day of my choosing to ship the dress from the store to my home so that I would not have to leave a $5000 dress sitting on the doorstep or have it returned to sender (meaning the dress would be forfeited without a refund!)!

They called to let me know that it had arrived in the store. I asked them, yet again, to please wait until Thursday to ship it, so that I could be home to sign for it when it came without having to take off of work (besides, I didn't have hardly any vacation days I could afford to use if I still wanted to be able to go on my honeymoon!). They said they would wait until Thursday to ship it. On Monday, they called me to confirm that they had shipped it that day! WHAT!? NO! I'll have to take off of work and I have a very important meeting!! They were unapologetic and one woman I spoke with was just downright rude and ugly to me, even though I had remained calm. I wasn't even terribly upset until that lady HUNG UP THE PHONE ON ME!

After that, I was determined to get in touch with whomever her manager was. I had had such an amazing experience there when I visited and I wanted them to succeed as a business - so I thought it was only right that they know that they have a couple of employees BADLY hurting their business. That was a mistake. I was simply given the run-around and belittled further. I finally got a call back nearly a month later from Robin, who offered her own personal apology, but it was too late after the way everyone else had acted.

The in-store consulting staff is wonderful. But ultimately, the place is poorly managed and the service and quality of several employees in other departments are equivalent in caliber to a low-end second-hand thrift store employee.

OMG I love them! My gown, all 10 bridesmaids gowns, AND all tuxes came from Lori's. My wedding will be featured on season 2 of the Bridesmaids edition. YAY! My dress experience was NICE and EASY. Tried on 2 with just my mother and I. CINDY was awesome and provided a no pressure sales experience. They also gave me a tiny discount for the trunk show and I met the designer of my gown Judd Waddell. SCORE! My bridesmaids dresses was an experience. Have PATIENCE and know that if the gowns don't arrive on time it is not the store's fault. I had to keep this in mind because my bridesmaids dresses came in 2 months late...So order EARLY, even earlier than early just in case. In the end it all worked out and my girls looked incredible! The tux rental experience was easy. My guys looked awesome. I say skip savvy and go for something a little chic-ER. They looked great, crisp and clean. No oversized irregular fitting tuxes at all. I would reccomend people use Lori's for all they've got. Make it easy on yourself and get the whole package!

They have such an array of dresses that you'll be sure to find the perfect dress and their bridal consultants will be with you every step of the way. If you're looking for your dream dress, you definitely need to go to Lori, her and her team will have everything thing you need.

Loved this place! They have so many dresses to chose from. I knew that I wanted a Rivini gown and NC doesn't have many boutiques with the brand so I traveled to Atlanta for the weekend during a Rivini trunk show. They had so many different dresses, they could accomodate anyone. They were very helpful and found the perfect dress for me. I would definitely recommend this place to future brides. Very much worth the drive.

I bought my wedding dress and veil here. Although I absolutely love my dress, the service was awful. Don't go there expecting to be pampered and have a quality appointment. You have a short window to find your dress, otherwise, you are being rushed out because their next appointment is there. If you try to call them...good luck! I had 4 people tell me 4 different things. It's as if the departments don't communicate with each other. They have a great selection of wedding dresses, but if you want a one-on-one quality service appointment, where you feel special, go somewhere else.

Poor Customer Service – Not Worth the Money
This wedding dress venue has a large selection of very expensive bridal gowns. It was fun going to the store the first time and trying dresses on. Once I had selected a dress, I received poor customer service. The staff gave me misinformation which resulted in me having to rush order some things I wanted to add to my dress and pay extra costs. They are difficult to contact and I didn’t get phone calls returned in a timely manner. I further received poor customer service in the alterations department where I was once again given incomplete information which resulted in me having to make an extra trip to the store on the week of my wedding which caused more stress to be added to an already stressful time. I would not recommend this store to other brides and would never go there again myself for anything. Not only are they way over-priced, but the customer service certainly does match what one would expect when paying a lot of money and from a well-known bridal store.
We also rented my groom’s tuxedo from Black Tie by Lori and found out later we could have rented the same thing from another store for much less cost. Be Aware!

I had a great experience with Bridals by Lori and I highly recommend them. All of the consultants were very friendly and offered their oppinion when I tried on dresses. My bridal consultant was Cindy and she was pretty good. I didn't have a consultant helping me pick out gowns to try on which was fine with me because I knew exactly what I was looking for and I was actually thankful to not have someone hovering over me at every turn. They gave me, my mom and my friends free reign to look around the store and pick out dresses. The store is very well organized. The dresses are separated by designer which makes them easy to find, especially if you have a particular dress in mind or if you have a favorite designer. In my opinion, Bridals by Lori has the best quality dresses of bridal stores in Atlanta. No other dress that I tried on even came close to the one that I purchased at Bridals by Lori. If you are looking for top quality, designer dresses, this is the place to go. P.S. I recommend shopping here last so that you explore all of your other options first. Then, if you purchase your dress on your first visit to Bridals by Lori, they will give you a discount!

Bridals by Lori was fabulous! We bought our daughter's bridal dress, her bridesmaids' dresses, and all accessories there in addition to renting the groom's party's tuxes. Everything in the process went without any problems and it was an amazing experience! The service was fabulous and they were even very helpful when I brought in my veil to see if it would match the dress- it did beautifully and Monty even showed my daughter how to wear her hair (he did an updo in around a half a minute) with the veil. Flo was fabulous helping my daughter to select the perfect dress! BBL is the perfect location for Say Yes to the Dress!

So they say that going wedding dress shopping is supposed to be memorable and memorable Bridals by Lori certainly was – just not for anything that one would want to be remembered for!! We went last Friday afternoon and I can honestly say that I have never had such awful service in my life. The woman was incredibly rude rolling her eyes and sighing at every request – and by every I mean a request for a sash, a bra, and a flower for a single dress – and yet you would have thought we were asking for her first born child. Needless to say, my friend loved the dress and it’s the only place in Georgia that sells that dress, but the lady was experience was so bad that my friend is now traveling out of state to buy it and while it’s going to be more expensive it was totally worth it to her out of principle more than anything else. Oh and it didn’t help that they were filming “Say yes to the dress” while we were there. If the service is going to suck while they are filming, then close the shop, that’s fine, but if the store is open then provide service to the customers who are in the store! So word of advice to all future brides – steer clear of Bridals by Lori, it is all show and no substance!

My dress was gifted to me by my aunt so when she wanted to take me to Bridals by Lori I was super excited! I knew that they would have a lot of options to choose from. I’m a tomboy so I figured it might be a challenge to find the right dress. I didn’t want to look like a cupcake or a princess b/c it’s just not me. Well it was no challenge for them! They really do have something for everyone! With their help I found the perfect dress for me and felt beautiful on my wedding day! They were a little thrown off that I didn’t want a veil and they did try to up sell me on accessories but it could have been worse. My jaw dropped when they told me what the alterations were going to cost so I ended up going elsewhere for that considering I didn’t need much done.

I would defiantly recommend Bridals by Lori! My sister is engaged and I know my aunt plans to take her there as well!

Bridals by Lori is a great place to purchase a gown. My sales associate Flo was great and very personable.

No pressure to purchase and they will work with you on the price, especially if you purchase during a trunk show. The alterations were great and my Amsale gown and shopping experience was incredible.

I may be biased because I grew up with the owners daughter, but I think this is the best place to get a wedding dress in the world. It's one on one service, and since I need a plus size I was very nervous about getting into a dress to see if I would like it. They made me feel very comfortable, and I found the perfect dress by the 3rd one I tried on. For the men, we were looking all over at tuxes, and we ended up pleasantly surprised to discover that the tuxes at Black Tie by Lori are vastly nicer than anywhere like Men's Wearhouse, and only about $10 more per rental. We got the bridesmaids dresses there too, and since everyone in the bridal party was out of town we were worried about getting measurements and alterations. Bridals by Lori took care of everything, and made it stress free and easy.

I had originally found the perfect dress in Washington DC, but the 4500$ price tag (plus alterations) was out of my budget and I was formally told that the sample could not be sold. Living in Norfolk VA, I called around and found that Bridals by Lori in Atlanta had the exact dress in the same size and color in great condition. They sent me dozens of pictures of the dress, including a close up of a missing button cap, which they included with the dress. They also took close up pictures of the hem to show that it was slightly dirty. They were incredible honest with the dress condition, which was excellent. They gave me 40% off the price tag and shipped it that day. They understood that it very nerve racking to purchase a gown that you have never seen and made the whole process so easy. At my resort wedding, dozens of people came up to me to tell me how beautiful the dress was. Bridals by Lori really went the extra mile!

My experience at Bridals by Lori was a bit of a rollercoaster. I ordered a custom Christos dress, it came in a month late (but I expected that given the custom order). Gorgeous dress, but alterations were a nightmare. I lost 60+ lbs from dress ordering time until alterations time, so that didn't help. First alterations experience was like a cattle call-- 7 brides hustled around in a tiny tiny space. Once they had our money, I guess the bells and whistles were dropped. They hustled us out, and scheduled my next fitting for 3 weeks before my wedding. Um, bad. Called back very upset, moved next fitting up. After 5 fittings, we picked my dress up 2 days before the wedding. Fast forward to the reception, and I realized that my bustle and bust were screwed up-- things were out of place, the dress was falling apart in places that had previously been fine. I ended up hauling around a train all night, and the bottom got destroyed. Early trash the dress session I guess.

Also, for our bridal party, they added on tons of extra charges for extra length on girls that DID NOT need extra length. Frustrating.

Given the choice, I guess I'd do BBL again... Wanting the dress I did didn't really give me much options, as it was the only Christos retailer in our area.

I was displeased with the service I got from Bridals by Lori. Our bridesmaid dresses were late, my husband's tux was wrong and one of the groomsman tuxes was missing the bowtie. I wished I would have gotten everything at New Natalies, where I got my wedding gown.

I had a wonderful experience at Bridals by Lori. My consultant, Maureen, had me in and out of so many dresses and I was getting frustrated at not finding "the one". After trying on several, she went into the back and pulled a dress out that she wanted me to just try. If I had seen it on the rack, I probably never would have pulled it into the fitting room. However, when I put it on, it was magical. It was absolutely the dress and my mom, best friend and future sister in law were all crying as I walked around in it.
I also used BBL for my alterations, bridesmaid dresses and Tuxes. My seamstress was wonderful and made the dress fit me perfectly. The only drawback was that she was only there on Tuesdays. However, it was worth the small inconvenience as she did a wonderful job. The bridesmaid department was fabulous as well. My maid of honor found out she was pregnant after she ordered the dress and the manager went so far as to find somewhere for her to get the dress altered and went with us on the appointment to make sure it looked how I wanted it to.
Christine in Black Tie by Lori was awesome. She helped get a very unorganized group of guys get organized and outfitted very quickly. She was also extremely professional and easy to work with. I cannot say enough good things about her or any of the other staff members in the Bridals by Lori Family. They were extremely attentive and professional and they played a huge role in making my wedding so memorable.

I purchased my wedding dress from Bridals by Lori. Although it is a little intimidating when you first arrive, my bridal consultant Patricia helped us find the perfect dress in our price range and my size. Since the sample didn't fit me, she even asked one of the other consultants to try it on for me so I could see it on someone. She recommended the style that would be the most flattering and all within the cost we were comfortable with paying. When the dress arrived, it was absolutely amazing and fit perfectly!

I LOVED my dress and would recommend the designer to anyone. However, my experience with Bridals by Lori was sub-par. They have the best selection in Georgia, without a doubt, but the post-purchase service was abysmal.

I was yelled at by the manager and seamstress for ordering a size that was too large. (Although this was the size recommended by the saleswoman). My voicemails were left unreturned, and once I had made the initial payment, it was clear that I had become a very low priority. I would go here to browse but purchase elsewhere if you can.

I found my dream dress at Bridals By Lori in Atlanta. After experiencing such a horrible experience at another bridal location in Atlanta I was thrilled to be treated like a princess at BBL. They didn't rush me and I felt comfortable. They also gave me their honest opinion and helped me to select the dress that would wow everyone. I just wish I could find an event to wear my dress to again.

I really enjoyed most of my experiences at Bridals by Lori. My consultant was really patient and helpful. I really like that they let me go through all of the rooms and pull dresses. They even took dresses off the mannequins for me to try on. They let me come in and try on the sample dress as many times as I wanted after I had decided on my dress. When my dress came in, it was definitely big. The bodice was really complicated with beading over lace, but the alterations department was able to custom fit it to me and the dress looked amazing. They had to basically take the whole bodice apart and put it back together, and I couldn't even tell that they had unstitched anything. The only thing that really put a damper on my experience was when I put my dress on on my wedding day it looked like they had the temperature too high on the steamer and scortched a small piece on the front. When I inquired about it after the wedding, they said that I must have spilled something on the dress, even though I had left it in the bag with all the tissue paper until I put it on. It was really frustrating that they weren't even willing to consider that they had made a mistake. Fortunately nobody else noticed it.

I LOVED my dress- they had a fabulous selection. My main frustration came as part of the alterations- we got very close to the deadline that I had given them for when I needed my dress for my bridal portraits. Also, if you're not getting married near Atlanta, you should reconsider using them for alterations because I had to drive back so many times & sometimes there was absolutely no difference in the dress from the time before when I had an alteration done. Thiw was very frustrating because I lived two hours away.
That being said, my dress was beautiful & they were able to alter the dress so it was exactly what I wanted.

This is the perfect place to find your dream gown. They were very helpful in understanding my vision and pulling gowns to try, as well as allowing me to browse and pick my own selections. The facility is just gorgeous and very nicely organized. Different rooms for different designers. Everyone is very kind, not snoody as you may expect from caliber of a bridal salon. She got my vision, and pulled the perfect gown for me. I worked with Marta.

I also got my bridesmaids dresses from here. I went in with one vision, and that completely changed when I talked to Efran about wanting a dress that is truly re-wearable and sexy. He showed me the Amsale short jersey dresses. They were perfect, and allowed the girls to pick their own styles. Efran is so nice and wonderful to work with.

I went ahead and had my alterations completed here too, which was done beautifully. They're great too!

Customer service is dead on at Bridals by Lori, they really take care of you here. No complaints at all.

I walked into this swanky bridal shop and almost immediately turned around, as I was sure that nothing would be in my price range. However, I grinned and beared it and immediately told the sales girl my price range before we even began to talk about silhouette. Though she acknowledged that that would be difficult to fulfill, she said she would do her best to help me. She showed me to the racks within my price range, and also showed me the samples. I was able to find a sample that was gorgeous and in perfect condition. Gorgeous! No beads missing, nothing ripped or stained. Never once did she try to push the limits of my budget by showing me any other dresses.

They are amazing and personal, but it definitely matters what sales representative you get. I had Charlotte in the tux shop downstairs, and she was a dream. They carry every major designer for wedding dresses as well and help in every aspect of the selection process. Lori herself is around often. BBL did everything for me from my dress, to the groom and groomsmen, to the bridesmaids, to groomsmen and bridesmaid gifts, to jewelry and shoes. They are really spectacular.

This bridal shop was amazing! After trying on at least 100 gowns at other shops, I had the feeling I would find my dress here from the minute I walked in. On the Bridal floor there are little nooks that house each designers dresses which made it very easy to locate my favorite designer and try on all the styles I loved. They also have a runway for the brides to walk up and down to see how the dress wears. My consultant spent two hours with me and I knew I found my dress the moment I put it on. The store also has an online live video feed that allows friends and family to see you in the shop and give approval on gowns. It was very helpful having this since my mother lives in Ohio and I live in Atlanta. The store is very professional and everything happened as they said it would; their alterations department is also very efficient and helpful. I didnt have a single problem with this shop and recommend them to everyone that I can.

I didnt have a single problem with this shop and recommend them to everyone that I can. Read less

My experience with Bridals by Lori was wonderful. They were extremely professional and thay have such a wide selection of gowns. I got an Amsale gown and my mother got her dress as well. The fitting rooms are beautiful and they have an amazing "runway" that you get to check out your dress on. I would definitely recommend it!

Every girl dreams of shopping for her wedding gown. I can truly say that going to Bridals By Lori in Atlanta made the whole experience a dream come true. They were extremely helpful and friendly and treated us like royalty. They give a discount on bridesmaids dresses as well if you purchase your gown from them. Fun Fact, because I had a 4 month engagement I bought a sample dress from them (the dress everyone tries on) for %50 off the real price. I had it cleaned and it was perfect!!

Most of my positive experience is due to my consultant at BbL. I have heard that a few of the young saleswomen can be snooty, especially toward brides over a size 10. I am a size 14-16 (in a normal dress) but found a beautiful dress that I never wanted to take off. If you plan to visit several stores make this your last stop- if you purchase the same day you will save at least 10%.

Great experience with Bridals by Lori. We scheduled an appointment. I started to get discouraged because I was not finding anything that I liked, but then the bridal consultant brought out a dress for me to try. I tried it on - and it was the one! It was perfect in every way. It fit me, my personality, and the wedding day!

I did my alterations with Toni - she did a wonderful job making it fit just right. On the day of the wedding, I did not have to adjust my dress once, because it fit that perfectly! She is amazing! I wish I could wear my dress everyday!

Rivini was the maker and I could not have been more pleased with the dress! It just made me smile when I put it on.

My wedding dress was everything I could hope for and my bridal consultant Kim was amazing to work with. When my bridesmaids bought their dresses there however, it was a complete mess. We chose $350 Amsale dresses for them. One bm tried on their sample dress, which fit perfectly. The bm consultant didn't take her measurements, and ordered the dress in the sample size my bm tried on. It came out too small, and then they refused to change, alter or call for an exchange. They told us my bm had gained weight it was normal to get alterations.

We were so mad about this.

Very professional, very responsive. They were able to help me choose dresses that best accentuated my figure.

Lots of designer dresses and lots of people to help you find what you are looking for. Additionally, a very wide and beautiful selection of veils.

BBL is definitely a place to go to check out the gowns and get ideas, even if you can't afford the dresses, because there is such a wide variety there. There is a great amount of gowns in all different price ranges, and they do offer a good discount if you order the first day you're there. With me, they extended it to the second time since I found the dress I loved when I stopped in on a whim and my mother, who was paying for the dress, was out of town for the next few days. Overall a good place, though the sales associates can be rather cool at times. I have to say that some of the gowns by Reem Acra were a couple hundred bucks cheaper at Saks from what I saw, but that might not matter if you get the discount.

I really enjoyed my experience here. I had been to several other stores, but not any who were set up so professionally. The staff was very nice and patient. I had tried on so many dresses and when I put on the dress the I bought, I just knew it was THE ONE. I cried, my mother cried and even the sales assistant cried. Maybe it was because she was glad I finally found a dress... or maybe she knew how much it was and she made commission, :) but either way it was really sweet. She was so helpful and we had so much fun with her. She made the experience less stressful by helping me find dresses for my body type and the style I wanted. There are SO many dresses to choose from that you can get lost and frustrated so easily, but the staff knew just what to do to keep that from happening.

I spent WAY more than I ever intended to, but I have not regreted one penny of it and I have been married for 3 years. I am still in love with my dress and sadly it has to live in a protective box.

I would highly recommend Bridals by Lori, it is a beautiful and memorable place to shop for your dress.

Bridals by Lori has a great selection of dresses for a wide range of prices. But expect to spend at least $1,500 to $2,000 on any dress you find there. I shopped and shopped and shopped for a dress and did not find one I loved until I went to Bridals by Lori. The customer service was great - Cindy is who helped me. She was awesome. I only wanted to spend about $1,000 on a dress when I walked in, and even though they do not have any there I know of for that price (except maybe some on clearance/off the rack) she helped me graciously. We found the one I bought for originally over $2,000 but they were running a special where I got about $300 off. It was well worth spending the extra money because the dress looked absolutely amazing (and it is only one day you get to wear a wedding dress).

The store is amazing! It has an actual runway with mirrors all around it so you can actually look at yourself walking in the dress. That was just fabulous. Another really good thing about Bridals by Lori is they have dresses in all different sizes if you are not a size 0 - 6, don't worry. They have dresses to try on in 10s, 12s, and 14s I believe. I know in my wedding dress shopping, I got very frustrated with some places - especially Bride Beautiful - they did not have but 3 dresses I could try on because I was a size 10 and was too big of a bride for them.

Bridals by Lori is also a full service bridal salon - so they sell shoes, accessories, veils, bridesmaid dresses, etc. I bought my veil there. Cindy helped me match my dress up to the perfect veil. I tried the dress and the veil on together on the runway and fell in love with it.

I got my dress altered by Bridals by Lori. Alterations went smoothly at first, but I warned them that I was going to lose weight before my wedding day, and they told me not to worry about it. I was signed up for 3 fittings, but at the second fitting they told me I could take the dress with me. I told them, no, that I wanted to keep the final fitting and that I would probably lose weight. Sure enough, I lost weight, and found at the third fitting, that the dress needed to be alterated by approximately 2 inches. The alteration department kind of got frustrated with me because I lost weight and the dress had to be ready within a week. Alterations told me that I should have told them I was going to lose weight and to make sure I let people know ahead of time in the future. They acted like it was such a huge problem to have to perform alterations that quickly. So I thought that was really rude since I had told them the whole time I was losing weight, and that was the whole reason I kept the 3rd fitting. That is why I am rating the professionalism, quality of service, and flexibility 4.5 instead of 5 (only due to the treatment in the alteration department). But I would give them a 5 in responsiveness because they did have my dress ready in time, and it fit perfectly. I just had to pay an arm and a leg for rushing the alterations at the end (hence the 4.5 in value for cost).

Overall, my experience at Bridals by Lori was good. I trusted their alteration department to perform my alterations because if they did mess up my dress, it would have been on the company, not me. And the alterations were really done well. I just thought they could have been more professional at the end.

Everyone loved my dress, and I would recommend guests on a budget at least go try out Bridals by Lori and see what could be there for them. My guests said I was a picture perfect beautiful bride.

We used Bridals by Lori for suit rental only. We thought they were doing a great job when we were determining what suits/ties/etc. to use. They were very helpful in-store. However, they sent us a standard email to send to our groomsmen, who all lived out-of-state, so they would go get their measurements and send them in on an online form, along with their payment. Well our groomsmen all got their measurements, but then the website was down. Bridals by Lori then provided us with an email they could send their measurements to, but they never responded to confirm receipt of the measurements. We would call to check on the status, and they constantly told us they had never received measurements or payment from people we knew had called or emailed, because they copied us on the email or updated us when they called (they usually had to leave a voicemail when they called). Bridals by Lori told us they would just personally call our people to get their information, but our groomsmen all confirmed that they never received any phone call from them. Finally, the week before we left for our wedding, they said they still had not received payment from my brother or my fiance's brother. We checked with both of them, they said not only had they called multiple times and left messages to call them to get their credit card info, but they had never received one phone call from Bridals by Lori. We called AGAIN to see what was up, and they promised us they would call them soon, which they did. Still, not something you want to be dealing with the week of your wedding. They weren't super-flexible with our pick-up and drop-off times, as we had a destination wedding at Jekyll Island and they made us pick up on Thursday and drop off on Sunday, even though we were going to be there from Wednesday-Monday. We would have incurred an additional charge for the extra days, so we had to have someone else pick up the suits and drop them off.

THEN, our groomsmen all put on their suits, and they all fit pretty well, EXCEPT for our ringbearer's. He is 6 years old, and his suit jacket was at least 4 inches too long on the arms. The shirt they sent would have fit a grown man. I know with people living out of town, we incur a liability with the measurements being possible slightly off, but afterwards, our ring bearer's mom looked at the measurements and they were not 4 inches off, nor would they have led to a grown man's shirt being sent. The day of our wedding, ON jekyll island, where there are no retail clothing stores, his parents had to drive to Brunswick's Target and buy a new white shirt. The ring bearer couldn't even wear the jacket for pictures or down the aisle.

On our way back to Atlanta, we received a phone call from Bridals by Lori because our groomsman who returned the suits let them know what happened. My husband spoke to them and the person said the manager would call us to discuss it. We never received a phone call from the manager. My husband then went by because he had forgot to give his tie to the person who returned everything... he spoke with the sales associate again, but the manager wasn't there. He was again told the manager would call him. Three weeks later, we never received a phone call from the manager to apologize.

We used Bridals by Lori for suit rental only. We thought they were doing a great job when we were determining what suits/ties/etc. to use. They were very helpful in-store. However, they sent us a standard email to send to our groomsmen, who all lived out-of-state, so they would go get their measurements and send them in on an online form, along with their payment. Well our groomsmen all got their measurements, but then the website was down. Bridals by Lori then provided us with an email they could send their measurements to, but they never responded to confirm receipt of the measurements. We would call to check on the status, and they constantly told us they had never received measurements or payment from people we knew had called or emailed, because they copied us on the email or updated us when they called (they usually had to leave a voicemail when they called). Bridals by Lori told us they would just personally call our people to get their information, but our groomsmen all confirmed that they never received any phone call from them. Finally, the week before we left for our wedding, they said they still had not received payment from my brother or my fiance's brother. We checked with both of them, they said not only had they called multiple times and left messages to call them to get their credit card info, but they had never received one phone call from Bridals by Lori. We called AGAIN to see what was up, and they promised us they would call them soon, which they did. Still, not something you want to be dealing with the week of your wedding. They weren't super-flexible with our pick-up and drop-off times, as we had a destination wedding at Jekyll Island and they made us pick up on Thursday and drop off on Sunday, even though we were going to be there from Wednesday-Monday. We would have incurred an additional charge for the extra days, so we had to have someone else pick up the suits and drop them off.

A little on the pricey side, of course, but absolutely wonderful environment to try on dresses. The staff is completely professional, open-minded and willing to work with what you want. The experience was amazing.

We went to Bridals by Lori truly for the fun of it since its local and on TV. We arrived for our appointment and realized that most dresses in there were way out of our budget so we decided to make the best of it and have fun. We had a very attentive consultant who kept asking me questions about what I was looking for. She slipped away for a moment and came back with two gowns- there it was, my dress-the dress of my dreams-it sounds so silly but it really was exactly what I was looking for and it was in my price range. So I said yes to the dress and placed my order. Five months later the dress arrived and it was just as perfect as I remembered. My 1st fitting was a bit of a hassle and the alterations fee is outrageous. They keep adding more like expensive bras and the final pressing. Red flags everywhere but I had not done this before so I trusted them. 2nd fitting-there was miscommunication between seamstresses and they totally screwed up my dress. The top was all crooked and it was taken in the wrong place on the waist so it didn’t fit-I could not move or bend in the dress & the front was way too short so it just looked terrible. They assured me it was ok and that it would be fine but I knew that it was not. After a bit of arguing with alterations and asking to actually speak with Lori herself- they sent me and my dress to another shop nearby called TK Designs-these women thankfully seen everything that I seen so I knew I was not being a crazy bridezilla. They did everything they could to try and correct l the issues created by Bridals by Lori, it took a few more appointments but we were back on the right track. The way my dress & I were treated at Bridals by Lori was absolutely unacceptable. In the end the dress was repaired to the best it could be and on my wedding day I looked great however all the stress Bridals by Lori caused was unnecessary. I would say be wary of your purchase and run far and fast from alterations!

We got all of our wedding attire from Bridal's by Lori; my dress, the tuxes, the bridesmaids' dresses, even the MOB dress! I was so nervous to start trying on dresses since I didn't know what I wanted and wasn't a size 2 but the whole Bridal's team made the process so enjoyable. I don't ever want to get married again but I'd go through that process again if it could be with Bridal's. My consultant, Marta, was so kind and very helpful and helped me find my dress so quickly! I got the "Say Yes to the Dress" treatment from Lori, Monti, Flo, and Marta and I was not even being filmed! The bridesmaids' process wasn't as wonderful but it was great to get everything from the same place. The black tie dept was amazing as well since we changed our orders half way through. Tiffany, our tux consultant, made sure we were squared away and catered to our every need. Totally worth the money!

BUYER BEWARE!!! PLEASE READ THIS BEFORE YOU SHOP AT BRIDALS BY LORI. My daughter ordered a dress for my son's wedding - she was the "best man." The dress arrived 3 weeks before the wedding, and it was at least 2 sizes too small! When I called the store in a panic, the manager offered no help whatsoever. She was only concerned with making sure I knew WE were to blame - that WE insisted on ordering a dress that was too small. Seriously, that's what she said. When I suggested that it was her job to measure and tell us what size we needed, she got defensive and shrill. She offered absolutely no solution to the problem. She never offered to help us get a new dress or fix the existing one. My daughter had to run around trying to find another dress with 3 weeks to go. Luckily, she found a bridal shop willing to sell her a sample dress, and it was altered just in the nick of time for the wedding. This situation caused a lot of stress during the last precious weeks leading up to the wedding.

Bridals by Lori doesn't care about their customers. I cannot imagine treating customers in my business the way I was treated there. I'm now left with a $320 dress that will never be worn. And I've had to spend hundreds more to get a dress in time for the wedding. I would NEVER trust them with a wedding dress! Don't let them ruin your special day. Shop elsewhere.

I had shopped for a wedding dress all over my town in South Carolina without any luck. I attend graduate school in Atlanta and decided to have my mom come down so we could shop at Bridals by Lori. I was blown away by the quality of all their dresses compared to what I had been looking at in Greenville. My consultant was absolutely amazing and really listened to all the feedback I was giving. I ended up purchasing a dress that she had actually picked out. It was perfect! I could not have asked for a better experience... Just wish I would have started here first!

I was pleased with the staff at Bridals by Lori. They were attentive and worked within the budget I had given them. I didn't feel pressured at all. They allowed me to take my time and come back as many times as I wished. I wound up purchasing my dress at the Judd Waddell trunk show which saved me a lot of money. He was great! He rebuilt one of his original designs for me so that it would be a perfect fit and exactly to my liking. Alterations were done promptly and everyone was very courteous throughout. Bridesmaids dresses were purchased as well. We found Jim Hjelm dresses with alternating tops and bottoms so that everyone in the bridal party (mostly out of state) could choose styles they liked using online photos. It was very convenient!
