I found my dream wedding dress at Bridals by Lori! My consultant was very nice and did not push me on what I should try on next. I fell in love with my dress when I tried it on and still loved it every time I had to step into for my bridal portraits and wedding day.

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

I found the most beautiful dress at Bridals by Lori. I also found a head piece that I loved, but it was a bit too expensive. A few months before my wedding, they called to tell me that it was on sale, so I was able to afford it after all! Great customer service.

I had an amazing, five-star experience at Bridals by Lori. My bridal consultant, Melissa, was an absolute joy to work with from the very beginning. I loved that she didn't hover, but instead allowed me to browse the racks first. After I chose two or three gowns, she and her assistant helped me into my first choices. She explained the little details about each and every dress and offered kind words. After hearing what I liked and disliked about my choices, Melissa chose four or five other gowns for me. I still feel so at ease with my decision, and I know that I made the right choice. I found the dress of my dreams, and I have Melissa and everyone at Bridals by Lori to thank for that.

One stop shop for all things beautiful! I got my dress, my bridesmaids dresses, flower girl dresses, mother and grandmother of the groom dresses here. I LOVE Lawrencia Blout who helped me find my gorgeous gown and Krystle Arnold who did EVERYONE else as spectacular. Seriously, these two woman are the sweetest, most helpful, encouraging and professional woman ever. My whole extended LOVED Krystal because she made them feel beautiful and special each time they came in (which was a lot). And I'm obviously partial to Lawrencia for matching me with my amazing wedding dress and having the most amazing personality. The selection is AWESOME too for all clothes wedding related. I can't say enough great things about the staff there but those two woman will always hold a special place in my heart. The fitting team was also fabulous for alterations. Impeccable work!

So I'm a little torn about how to review them, because I have two very different opinions about the service for purchasing the dress, and the alterations department.
The women I worked with in the store to find my dress and my Matron of Honor's dress were both great. Very respectful, positive attitudes, and helpful. The woman I worked with to get my dress picked out what ended up being my wedding dress! It wasn't on my list but she suggested it. The dress was gorgeous and held up well throughout the wedding. It was a huge, gorgeous, sparkly ballgown and I couldn't have been happier with it. The whole experience overall was great.
When I called the alterations department to get alterations on the other hand, it was a horrible experience. They were rude, disrespectful, and unwilling to be even a little flexible to work with me. They demanded that I book my second fitting on a Tuesday afternoon and that they would not do any other day. That would be fine if I lived in Atlanta, however I live in Washington DC. I explained this to them that I was in a new job and couldn't just fly down on a Tuesday for a dress fitting, they got an attitude with me, and refused to give me any other options. I cancelled my alterations with them and took my dress to Gizzelle James Couturiere who did a fantastic job and I think I got more bang for my buck from her than what I would've gotten at Lori anyway.

I ended up purchasing bridesmaid dresses from here. Ashlen was so great! I was in and out of the studio multiple, multiple times with several bridesmaids trying to find the perfect dress that would fit everyone. She was so patient and helpful. Her and I exchanged several emails during the process before we even selected the dresses. She also helped me and my mom find a mother of the bride dress. Though she ended up purchasing from somewhere else, I cannot thank Ashlen enough for all of her help with my mom. I'd send everyone here because of the service we received.

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!

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.
