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 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.

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.
