I had tried on dresses elsewhere but didn't find the wedding dress shopping "experience" until I went to Bridals by Lori. I drove from Virginia Beach to Atlanta to find my dream dress and I did! I was able to say yes to the perfect dress ... they also helped me pick out my veil and a gorgeous headband. Everyone at the wedding, including my groom, commented on how amazing the dress looked. I highly recommend Bridals by Lori and their alterations services (I only had to have one set of alterations!).

I got my dream dress at Bridals by Lori but honestly wish I had found it somewhere else. The sales staff were polite, but a little pushy. I don't respond well to high pressure sales environments so it might be fine for some, but it didn't seem like they had my best interest at heart. I wouldn't go there again.

WORST EXPERIENCE OF MY LIFE!!!! I came to bridals by Lori for my FIRST bridal appointment ever with a whole bunch of friends of family and I have never been more humiliated and embarrassed in life. I am NOT a big girl by ANY means but they had hardly any dress sizes that would fit me...... like really? Im just a size 10..... I was mortified....I was able to get into a few but apparently if your not a stick your not welcome here! They should put a sign on the front door that says size 2 only. VERY upset and disappointed and the worst part about it was the lady who was helping me wasnt apologetic (not that its her fault) but she was like "oh well, we dont have anything else for you, we only carry 2 size 10's, thats too bad."

My daughter found a Christos hand sewn Chantilly lace gown here for half price which absolutely amazing. She was stunning, she fit right into an 8 with no alterations. The staff helped her find a chapel length designer veil which we bought later at a trunk show for 10 percent off. They were very helpful on the gown however we went to Davids bridal for all the bridesmaids gowns.

Enormous selection of beautiful gowns with selections available for every budget! Our Bridal Consultant, Cindy, was perfect in every way for us.......we could not have been more pleased. Bridals by Lori was the first of 4 salons we had appointments for but we ended up canceling the other appointments because we found the perfect gown for my daughter's petite stature. Definitely will continue to recommended family and friends to look at Bridals by Lori, first!

Everything about my wedding was perfect, but absolutely NO thanks to BBL. I bought my dress there about 8 months before my wedding. I happened to fit into the floor model so I bought that one. Here's where I made my mistake - I should have taken my dress home and gone to a professional seamstress to do the alterations. Instead, I relied on BBL's word that they did excellent wedding dress alterations.

My dress was a very simple Rivini gown, So I assumed taking it in would be simple. At my second fitting, there was a giant pouch in the front of my dress (like where my belly would go if I had one). I pointed out this big pouch and BBL said they couldn't make the dress any tighter because it might rip. Mind you, I had to pull my dress up at least every 20 seconds to keep my chest covered. The dress was WAY too lose.

I spoke to the manager later that day and explained the situation. Her response? 1. "I spoke with Lori and she told me the dress is made that way." 2 "Rule of thumb, if you're buying a wedding dress and it has a pouch like that, you shouldn't buy it." 3. "I can't return your dress to you to take it elsewhere because our tailors take the dresses home with them so we don't even have your dress in our possession."

All of these responses were unacceptable. After I pushed, the manager promised they would take it in some more. I came back (2 weeks before my day), and the dress was exactly the same. THANK GOD, I had some money left in the budget for emergencies. I paid another tailor $500 to fix my dress. I literally picked it up on my way out of town for the wedding.

I would NEVER recommend using BBL for alterations. NEVER EVER EVER!!!! I can't believe they treated me the way they did and almost ruined by wedding dress. Maybe because they sell such expensive dresses, they didn't think much of my $4000 dress, but that dress meant everything to me and not knowing whether it would actually fit on my wedding day caused me such stress and grief.

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.

I am a very unhappy bridesmaid! When I received my georgous dress, it was way too big. Ellen, the consultant, agreed that the dress was big. However, she did not want to be helpful at all. She offered to re-measure me but would not offer any adjustment in alteration fees so in my opinion, it was pointless to allow her to re-measure me again. She stated that I knew the size that I signed for. She also said that she has women all the time who still insist on the smaller size. I told her that I was unaware of that option and relied on her because she was supposed to know what she was doing. She then stated that it was not her fault if the Chinese kids cut the dress incorrectly. Really?! What kind of statement is that?!! At that point, I became angry.

We went in for a MOB trunk show -that we RSVP'ed for. But, the show had been canceled without notifying us. Since we drove all the way there, we decided to take a look around in the bridal suite. We had a wonderful consultant (Megan) assist us and help me find my perfect reception dress!!! The problem came when ordering. The sales lady at the desk would not let me order the size I wanted to -so she ordered a size bigger. Now that the dress is in -it is HUGE. They obviously wanted the alterations money. We are using another seamstress for alterations b/c we're so annoyed with Bridals by Lori. Our seamstress said that they dress is so well-made it will be costly for her to take it in 3 inches!!!
I was given tons of compliments on how stunning the dress looked!
