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.

My bridesmaid dresses were bough through Bridals by Lori and I'm pretty happy with the experience. We had been around to a couple of the other main places around town and I was actually pretty surprised to see that BBL had lower prices for some of the same dresses. Our saleslady was understanding and patient. She chipped in advice without being over-opinionated. The only issue we had was with the size suggestions. They had been measured at one of the other shops and the size that was suggested to order was way off what we had heard before. One of the girls got re-measured and it turns out that there was a pretty big mistake. It's a good thing that she knew better or that would have been a big problem. Other than that, it's been pretty run of the mill. The payments are flexible and the email communications are through. The dresses just came in so all has been good.

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.

Terrible, terrible experience with Bridals by Lori. My dress was beautiful, but it didn't even last through my event without losing 14 buttons and stretching out so much it was almost indecent.

I ordered my dress very early (at least 8 months in advance) and it was delayed. They were rude and condescending towards me when I demanded answers. It arrived, but it was a very nerve-wracking experience.

When I was buying my veil (on a separate day) they actually left me in the store because the saleswoman had to catch a flight. I was rushed out of there, and I didn't feel like I had enough time to make a decision.

Alterations were terrible too. I had to point out problem areas with the dress and then she adjusted them.

If I could do it again, I would NOT buy from them. If I had known how poorly constructed my dress was (a Marisa) I wouldn't buy it either. It was beautiful, but the whole experience was a rip off.

While I ultimately found and purchased my dress here, the staff at the front desk was quite rude about budget when I first arrived. They also essentially put me in a room of sample dresses and just let me pick dresses to try on, rather than helping me to find the right dress for me.

The price of a sample dress was nearly $1,000 without alterations.

Regarding alterations, they were minimal and extremely expensive. There was also no flexibility in day of week for my final fitting. Fridays only.

I was hesitant to even try dresses on at Bridals by Lori because I was concerned they were too girly-girl for me… and let's be honest, too expensive. I'd been there once to buy a bridesmaid dress and knew their reputation for flair from the TLC reality show. I was worried I would be pressured into something that just wasn't my style - which is simple. Boy was I wrong!!!! The stylists there work within your personal tastes and budget and I felt zero pressure to walk the runway or put on a ton of bling and get all pageant-y because my stylist could tell that just wasn't me! After I decided to purchase my dream dress both Lori and Monty gave me a hug and said… its up to you if you want to walk the runway, no pressure :) And guess what? It turns out, I wanted to! These people are as genuine as they come, I highly recommend.
