Terrible customer service!! My daugther's bridesmaid dress was dirty and they would not do anything about it. Said they tried to clean it but said she must have had lotion or body oil on her hands when she tried dress on in store. No one noticed the spots in the store and it was not noticed until it was taken for alterations. They blamed her for the stains and not bringing it back sooner so they could return it and get a new one. My daughter never had the dress on except once to try it on when she picked it up and once for it to be altered. She also does not wear lotion or body oil either. We asked for a small discount because will she have to wear dirty dress at the wedding but the refused. Said it was our problem and my daughter's fault for not checking the dress better when she picked it up. I would never buy anything from them again. $200 dress ruined through no fault of ours.

Bridals By Lori responded with the following comments:

We are sorry for the issue. Your daughter inspected the dress for flaws in the store, signed a document that the dress was great and picked up several weeks ago. Unfortunately once a dress is out of the store it is out of our control. We accepted the dress back & cleaned the spot as a FREE service and the spot is virtually gone. Thank you for your business.

I really had a wonderful experience at Bridals by Lori! My consultant, Melissa, was very nice and really listened to what I was looking for in a wedding gown. She was thorough and didn't make me feel rushed. I even got "jacked up" by Monty! I have to admit I was a little star-struck since I'd seen them all on the TV show, but they really made me feel special. I did end up going over budget but that was my choice and definitely was not pushed on me. I ended up with a beautiful gown by Matthew Christopher ("Sofia") and was so happy with it! Liz in the alterations department was so nice too and did a great job of explaining exactly what they were doing to make the dress fit perfectly for me. I got so many compliments at my wedding about how beautiful and unique my wedding gown looked! Thank you to the wonderful team at Bridals by Lori! - Melissa N.

We used Bridals by Lori, Black Tie by Lori. It kind of ended up a mess. They forgot what we wanted for our suits, and what colors we wanted, and for whom we wanted those colors for. Mind you, they realized this like the week of my wedding. I can't specifically remember was it the week of or not; I know it was within 7 calendar days, however. To top it off, one of the tallest guys in my party's pants were too short. And yes, it was pretty darn noticeable. Because of that, we had a lot of knee and up pictures. They really need to do a BETTER job about keeping their records straight. I expected so much more from them.

I worked with Melissa last summer for my December 2014 wedding. This was the first store I visited and I found my dress the day I came in. Making an appointment is so easy. I visited the store with my mom and sister(matron of honor) and we were greeted very warmly by the front desk. Melissa asked several questions to gauge what I was looking for. I pulled several dresses and felt there was something missing with my top two choices. Melissa then pulled several options from the rack and she came back with the one! It was exactly what I had described and it was the very first dress she offered me! What a gift! The ladies at Bridals by Lori were so great to work with, I am so happy I found my dress through them!

Of all of the bridal salons I have been too, I had by far the worst experience at Bridals By Lori. There was such an overwhelming sense of pressure to buy on your first visit for a "day 1" discount, that I purchased the fourth dress I put on....even though I wasn't sure about it. I confused the pressure with excitement. I went downstairs to look at bridesmaids dresses and burst into tears. I knew I had made a mistake. I went back upstairs and one of the sales women (I think it was Lori) had me re-try on the dress. In the dressing room when I asked if I could cancel, she told me it would cost $450.00 to cancel. She told me that they would graciously allow me to exchange it for another dress (wow! Thanks). I slept on it and decided there was one I liked better, so I exchanged it for a more expensive dress out of my budget so that I didn't hate my dress. I am now stuck with a dress i have to sell for a loss that will devastate my wedding budget because I couldn't bear to spend $450 for a 10 minute mistake. PLEASE Do not make the same mistake I made.

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.

I am planning my wedding for overseas with the help of my family. Because I am not able to be present for a lot of the details, I have had to heavily rely on technology.. My sister went to Bridals by Lori to help me with bridesmaids dresses. She was able to get an appointment quickly. She tried on several different styles and I was able to watch via the stores webcam!!! Why do 't more stores do this?! It was very special to me. It felt like I was almost there. We were able to narrow down our decision so that we could communicate with the rest of the bridal party all over the country. The staff is doing an epic job of coordinating the order for all my bridesmaids dresses especially considering the time crunch we have in our hands. They have been helpful, honest, and diligent. I highly recommend the store to anyone in the Atlanta area!
