Aside from the designer gowns they carry, Bridals by Lori had very little to offer. When getting the dress, I was excited and the staff was friendly and helpful, BUT THE ALTERATIONS DEPARTMENT'S SERVICE was deplorable! I went for three fittings. At the first, things seemed to go well. At the second, they had done ZERO of the alterations I had ALREADY paid for. And by the third appointment (when my dress was supposed to be taken home for the wedding), the top was still too big and the straps I had added were attached by a single thread (look forward to the wedding day, and they broke off immediately after the ceremony and didn't make it to the reception). I took my dress to get totally redone in a single day by another alterations department, and paid half the price. Although I loved my dress, the service at Bridals by Lori was totally unacceptable.

Had a wonderful experience getting my bridal gown from Bridals by Lori! Monty & Lori were there the day I tried on dresses and my sister & bridesmaids had a ton of fun taking selfies with them. They were so nice in person! Monty did my hair in a quick updo so I could get a feel for how the dress looked with the hair style I wanted. It was fairly crowded when we went (on a Saturday) so be sure to make an appointment if going on the weekend! Maya was an amazing consultant because she encouraged me to try on completely different things to help visualize myself on my wedding day. She also asked great questions about each dress I tried on to help me narrow down what I loved and didn't like. It helped me to not feel so overwhelmed thinking about how beautiful they all are and what to choose. She never pressured me and always respected my budget when it came to her gown suggestions. Also, I said yes that day but came back the next day to pay for it - I am so glad I gave myself a night to sleep on the decision! I loved my dress and they were so nice when I needed to come back and visit it a few months later - Robin was super sweet! The dress that came literally fit like a glove! I needed zero alterations (minus the bustle) which was a huge relief because I've heard how expensive alterations can be! Kudos to the team who measured me for placing my order! Getting the bustle & cups sewn in was an easy process as well, however mine wasn't super complicated. All in all a great experience with so many options at all different price points!!

I went to Bridals by Lori not expecting to find any thing (mostly because their dresses were out of my price range), but we decided to go and check out the sale rack anyways. Thanks to the help of my consultant I found an amazing dress (within my budget)! I never felt pressured to push my budget. My consultant was great and helped me figure out how to do my hair and accessories.

I experienced the worst possible customer service at Bridals by Lori. I made my appointment weeks in advance, however when I arrived me and my party waited 20 minutes while they figured out who I would work with. My salesperson Marta was incredibly uneducated about the stores inventory. I said I wanted a true mermaid. She showed me two gowns before exclaiming that they didn't really have any mermaid gowns because they weren't really in style. It wasn't until one of the managers came over and took over the appointment that I was able to find the perfect gown. I put a 50% deposit on my almost $8,000 dress. My next complaint is that we attempted to make a payment of $957 (which we were invoiced for) on Friday October 11th. The salesperson mistakenly ran my fiancé's debit card for $1900, tried to fix it, and then the amount for $957. So now because there is a bank holiday on Monday we do not have access to almost $2000 for the better part of the week. On top of that the manager I spoke with Flo was completely unapologetic and rude when I expressed my frustration with the error. She responded with, "well what do you want me to do about it?" My dress is amazing, but the customer service at Bridals by Lori is terrible. I would never recommend them.

It is a great place and staff. The price for the dresses were a bit much. I have seen the dress I bought much cheaper lots of places. If you want to spend a lot of money go there. I don't think it's worth it.

Bridal by Lori's is a really cool store to go to as a bride! You have a lot of great choices and the people that work there are all very nice. I got my dress over a year before my wedding and I wish I would have waited. I bought an expensive Lazaro wedding gown that was a few seasons old. Unfortunately, not knowing anything about dresses, I paid full price for a designer dress that was about to no longer be sold since it was that many seasons old. I paid an extra $250 to have the bodice shorten and, once again not knowing a lot about dresses, did not realize they did not take out enough despite the fact they took my measurements. This caused an unbelievable amount of issues when I got my dressed altered (about $1,000 in alterations). The alteration specialist even questioned if this was a new gown or not due to the fact it was missing some typical Lazaro lining and the "new wedding dress" stiffness the dress should have. All in all, I would suggest shopping at Bridals by Lori because they have a great selection but do your research on the dress and make sure you pick your dress up there and try it on there right away. That way if you paid extra for anything and it is not100% correct, they can fix it.

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.

Had a great experience dress shopping! You give them your budget and they tell you what rooms contain the dresses in that range. You get your own consultant who helps you try on all dresses as well as keeps up with you for each fitting. I would highly recommend them!

BRIDALS BY LORI IS A SCAM! BBL ordered me the wrong dress and refused to admit fault! I tried on two VERY similar dresses the day I purchased my gown. When I said yes to a dress I had pinned on Pinterest over a year ago, I was confident that was the dress that would be ordered. Somehow, the similar one was pulled and ordered instead. Since I signed off on the style numbers, there is no room in negotiating the mixup. Another thing to be wary of- BBL has their own style numbers. They do not correspond with the designers' style numbers. No other salon does this! It makes it impossible to look up the dress that was ordered on your sales receipt. They gave me the option of either forfeiting the 60% deposit I put down and ordering the correct dress, or selling the dress I purchased online and re-ordering the correct dress. Neither option requires any responsibility on the salon's behalf for ordering the wrong dress. I have my dress listed online and I'm currently attempting to sell it. Since I did not want to re-order from BBL, I called around to see who else had it. Another salon in town is willing to sell it to me for $1,000 less because of the problems I've already had. I'm afraid to negotiate with BBL on the price I previously paid because I've read about them calling the designer to block the sale at other salons. Overall, this is not just the worst experience I've had while planning my wedding, it's one of the worst experiences of my life. I've lost sleep over this experience and have put off wedding planning recently because of how horrible they've made me feel. Everything about BBL and my wedding dress shop has been disheartening and deflating. I refinanced my car in order to be able to afford this dress, and it's not even the right one! A salon as big as BBL should admit fault and take the minor hit on their mistake!
