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!

Bridals by Lori was great! I went to a chain dress shop first & felt pressured to make a purchase. The entire experience there was rushed and chaotic. A complete 180 at Bridals by Lori. The shop was not overcrowded with millions of people and the dresses were organized by price, not size. My dress was the 2nd one I tried on & everything I wanted & more, it has pockets! ☺ Everyone was so courteous and really enjoyed what they were doing. Thanks!

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...

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!

This is a nice location and I enjoyed working with the nice and friendly staff. I purchased a dress here but ended up not liking it after a while (my fault not theirs). They have a nice selection but I will say that you can get more for your money at other locations. I purchased my bridesmaids dresses here as well. The staff was very responsive and they kept me update to date with the status of the dresses. Their dresses turned out beautiful!

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.

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 bought my gorgeous wedding dress at Bridals By Lori while visiting my parents in Atlanta. I decided not to have my purchase filmed and I'm so happy that I made that decision. It made the moment that much more intimate with my family. I had a wonderful time with Lori and her team. They were so nice and so patient with me! Plus they helped me pick out the perfect dress! If you need a wedding dress, go see Lori! :)
