Searching for and buying my wedding dress was an incredible experience that I would never change. Unfortunately that is where the magic with Bridals By Lori ends.
First of all their phone system is terrible. Not something I would normally complain about, but when you are constantly having to call them because of various problems it is annoying to have to sit through an automated system each time just to eventually be sent to the operator who will probably send you to a line that will get sent to a voicemail that won't be returned.
Shopping for bridesmaids and MOB MOG dresses was a horrendous free for all. Good luck getting a fitting room or God forbid a sales person to help you. When our dresses did arrive they were stored there for over a month because no one bothered to call us to tell us that they were in.
It only gets worse in the men's department or Black Tie By Lori. We worked with a young lady named Tiffany who was a total scatter brain. She misquoted us on the price and then tried to call us back to get us to pay the higher price. Luckily she had written down the price we were quoted so that is what they were held to. I asked if it would be possible to have suspenders instead of vests. She said yes but they only had white. I said I would only be interested if I could get them in khaki and she said she would see if she could order them, I said "that would be great, thank you." 2 weeks before the wedding she called to confirm the orders and I asked if she had any luck with the suspenders. She said she needed confirmation that I wanted them before she could look? WTH? I ended up having to rush out and buy some from Macy's.
All in all I would still order my dress from here but look elsewhere for all other wedding attire.

We went to Bridals by Lori for my bridesmaid dresses and they were so easy to work with. The manager Ashlen was so extremely sweet helping my girls pick out different styles to try on. She even went digging on the racks to the find the one style I really wanted the girls to try on. She was super sweet about helping my one bridesmaid who had just found out she was pregnant. Even when one of the dresses came in with a run they were extremely helpful at explaining that they would send the dress back to be fixed and we ended up getting it back in a week. Highly recommend them for any bridesmaid dresses.

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."

I purchased my wedding dress from Bridals by Lori and I had the most wonderful experience. I called about a month and a half prior to my desired date and they happened to have openings. Day of, I had the wonderful Maureen as my consultant. She listened to what I wanted and with that the first dress I picked out & tried on was the one I went home with! I said yes to my perfect dress!

Ordered 8 Bill Levkoff dresses for my recent nuptials. Did not like the quality of the dresses at all. As I understood it, the dresses were to go thru inspection at the shop before we saw them, but when they were picked up/shipped to my bridesmaids, the craftsmanship was poor. I brought it to the attention of Krystal, the wonderful employee in the bridesmaids section. She was very accommodating and wanted to help but it was so close to my wedding date and I didn't want to chance anything in the shop. We ended up getting alterations on the dresses to fix things that were above and beyond a simple hem or a loose strap. Some of the bra cups and linings of the dresses were uneven or sewn in wrong.

I gave 4.5 stars based on my overall experience with the shop and they employees. I wish there was a separate rating system for the quality of the dresses.

I had the absolute best experience shopping for my wedding gown at Bridals by Lori! It was just like 'Say Yes to the Dress' but even better. My consultant, Megan, was amazing and really listened to what I wanted. She ended up picking a dress I would never have thought I would have liked and I absolutely fell in love with it. She knew exactly what would work with my body and make me feel comfortable and beautiful. I am so happy with my choice to buy my gown from here!

Customer service was seriously lacking here and it was not the fault of the staff, it seems to be just the way the business is run. If you are looking for a personalized experience, I would not recommend Bridals by Lori. When they do finally get around to you, all they do is help you put on dresses that you have picked out and do their best to get you in and out of them as quickly as possible. It seemed as though as soon as I would walk out of the fitting room and step on the platform, I was being asked "so, is this the dress? Do you see yourself walking down the aisle in it?", and I hadn't even had a chance to look in the mirror or ask my family and friends what they thought.
Smaller stores are the way to go in my point of view. They will actually prepare for you and help you.

Bridals by Lori should be ashamed of the factory they've created. I understand that since their television show, the demand and clientele have increased, but there is no excuse for blatantly bad service. I made an appointment here to see 1 dress that was only offered at their salon. I knew from living in the area that the experience would be somewhat chaotic, but I never thought it would be this horrible. We checked in with the 2 ladies at the counter and immediately felt as if we were bothering them. No hellos, no smiles, no welcome. Once we arrived to the third floor, it looked and felt like we had been released into a Walmart on Black Friday. Our consultant was initially friendly and we discussed exactly what I was looking for in my dress. I knew what I wanted and gave her numerous pros and cons. She then looked at me and told me to wander around and pick some dresses out. At this point I was confused because the other boutiques had at the very least told me the designers to view. I had no real knowledge of what rooms of dresses to focus on, so I chose 4 dresses including the 1 I was originally interested in. Once we started trying the dresses on, she told me to find space on the stage where 5 other customers were already standing, leaving me inches at best. My consultant then told me she had picked a dress for me. It was the EXACT style, color, and fabric I told her I was not interested in. At this point, I had given up on my consultant because it was obvious she was going to throw dresses until one stuck, ignoring what I was actually looking for. She said she was going to look for more dresses and I politely declined, explaining the 1 dress I had wanted to try on didn't wow me. At this point, she said okay, walked out, and left us. As we were making our way to the elevator I saw her and thanked her for her time and she barely looked up and waved her hand at me, dismissing us. BBL will never get my business or recommendation.
