Everything's "Not Peachy" in Georgia, at Lori's Bridal. If I could give a -5 I would. I can only describe a very disenchanting, disappointing, demeaning experience with Bridals by Lori. How excited we all were to look at gowns that day ~ especially at Bridals by Lori. After all, we had driven 850 miles just to go there. We got to our appointment and being a plus size, had very little to choose, which I understood. However, under very high pressure, I put a deposit on a gown.
My wedding wasn't until over a year away. WITHOUT BEING ABLE TO TRY IT ON ~ 1st mistake, KNOWING that I had had gastric sleeve surgery and would be having a full body lift of which I would be losing 60 pounds plus inches ~ 2nd mistake. Unbeknownst to me, the gown was ordered immediately after full payment, fully aware of my situation. I honestly thought, surely, not until after my weight loss and closer to the wedding, still over a year and 60 pound weight loss away.
I was notified 3 months later that the gown was surprisingly in early!
My wedding wasn't until the end of July and it was just November! I was not even aware it was ordered without current measurements. My dress is 7...SEVEN sizes too big. Because I wasn't asked if I was ready to order, or for measurements before the dress was ordered, I end up with a dress size 22, when I wear an 6-8 in street clothes.
I called my consultant very upset and worried to see if anything could be done. I was also told, that's too bad, because dresses can't be taken in that many sizes without distorting them, so for me to go ahead and sell it online. HA! for what a small fraction of what they sold it to me for?! My invoice even states ~ BRIDE WILL BE LOSING POUNDS AND INCHES DUE TO SURGERY.
Well, the sweet southern charm had worn off that shiny new penny! I've been hung up on, talked down to, lied to and threatened that they would keep m

In love with my dress and the staff! They had so many options to pick from. The staff was prompt and professional and Lori was as sweet as she is on television. The business is clean and inviting and offers seating for all who attends with you.

I went shopping here as an "Outlet" bride, or as a bride with under a $2000 budget. Crazy. We had one of the first appointments of the day at 10:00 but didn't get called until about 10:15. They sent me upstairs to the regular showroom and then in front of every salesperson and every other bride they told me I was an outlet bride and needed to go back downstairs. Super unprofessional and humiliating. For the outlet brides, they take you into a teeny tiny room with about 6-8 racks of dresses. They say most of the outlet dresses are just discontinued styles, but all of them have something pretty major wrong with them. I would have had to spend almost as much correcting the dress as I would have on the dress itself. Also, I'm a dress size 14-16. Not skinny, but not really plus size, and they barely had anything I could try on, let alone for any sizesbigger than me. Additionally, I brought my dad to my appointment and he felt completely ostracized because they told him to "go sit over there" and "we'll let you know if we need you". Pretty rude considering how close I am to my dad. We looked through the bridesmaids dresses, but they were lacking. The one plus I would say is that they did allow us to go back upstairs to look at regular dresses, and it was a lot of fun just browsing through them despite the fact that they were over my budget.

Highly recommend!! The purchase of my daughter's wedding dress was one of the highlights of her wedding planning, and we have Lori and her staff to thank for that. My daughter feel in love with two dresses and just could not decide. The staff was very patient, and never made us feel rushed or pressured into a decision. If you appreciate quality and couture design, with a friendly and helpful staff - that is what BBL provides for Atlanta's brides!

To be perfectly honest I almost didn't go to my bridal appointment at Bridals by Lori because I read some negative reviews, but boy am I glad I went. My stylist was so attentive to what I wanted we found my dream dress the second dress I tried on. My whole experience was amazing here from the time I walked in the door I was greeted with friendly faces and everyone made trying on dresses so fun and relaxing. I did my alterations here and that process was very stress free and easy as well. I would recommend Bridals by Lori to everyone!

Brides, be sure to visit this place! I tried on gowns at three other bridal salons before finding the one at Bridals By Lori. At first, I had a very specific type of dress in mind - I wanted something fitted with full lace, sleeves and buttons down the back. After trying on numerous styles, nothing seemed to look the way I had envisioned. Fortunately, my stylist Megan - a super sweet, gorgeous, gown finding rock star - put me in something completely different than what I thought I wanted. It was a Watters gown (luckily there was a trunk show going on at the time) with a beaded corset and full, tulle skirt - nothing I would have picked for myself. And, it was PERFECTION! It ended up being more "me" than all the other dresses I was first drawn to. Megan and the entire staff made me feel so special and gave me the best experience - even though there were about 10 other brides trying on gowns I still felt like the only one. I couldn't stop smiling, bouncing and twirling around...at that point I knew this was the one :)

Huge thank you to Megan and the team at Bridals by Lori for finding the perfect gown. It was better than anything I could have imagined and made my dreams for wedding day come to life!

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!

Not a nice place to go. They were very snobby and not interested in helping someone who wanted to buy off the rack. I made an appointment but it was clear the person assigned to me was busy with other clients.

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.
