Liza was AMAZING!!!

I bought my dress from a boutique who does not do alterations so I had to find someone else to fit my dress for me. I went to Liza on the recommendation of a friend from work and was not disappointed.

I went in without an appointment on a Saturday, and although they were extremely busy, Liza and Brya squeezed me in for a fitting! Liza found little things wrong with the dress that I wouldn't have noticed until I saw them in photos and they would have bugged me for the rest of my life. She added cups to my strapless dress and altered it to make it look as though it was made only for me. She had it done in a couple of weeks and I had a perfect dress in my possession. She is reasonably priced and a complete doll to work with! If I ever need a formal dress made or altered, I will be going back to Liza!

I had my ball-gown custom made by Liza after not finding anything anywhere that fit my budget & had everything I wanted. Custom making a dress is stressful but in the end it was everything I dreamed about!

I got my dress altered here and Liza was amazing! Another store that ordered my dress, ordered it 3 sizes to big, so she had a lot of work to do. She stayed true to the dress design and made it fit perfectly! She knows exactly how to make your body look amazing!
Nona helped me to the moon and back. She made me feel like I was family. She helped me try on dresses while I was searching and although I didn't purchase my dress there, I wish I had!
Nona is an amazing asset to this store! I would definitely recommend this store if you are searching for a gown or simply need alterations or accessories! They are amazing!!

I bought my very expensive designer dress at Saks, and on the day I picked it up I left in tears because the alterations were so bad. I had the good luck to drive by Brides By Liza afterwards and stepped in with my dress. She managed to completely fix part of the dress and provide me with another new dress ( my dress comes in pieces) less than a week before the wedding. Anyone who knew about my dress drama said that if they didn't know about the last minute dress, they wouldn't have believed it. It fit like a glove.
In addition, Liza was so incredibly nice and sensitive to my situation. When I came in she handed me a glass of wine and told me everything would be ok and it was.
She also has a lot of tips and tricks like how to minimize the appearance of back fat in a strapless dress, how to reduce static cling, how to keep glued beading from falling off, etc.
In short, Liza is talented, sensitive, smart and speedy! Go to this place for good prices and expert tailoring.

Brides by Liza is where I got my wedding dress and I am so happy I did. My dress was beautiful. They listened to me and picked my perfect dress and they were so good with all their alterations - making sure everything was perfect for me from beginning to end. My sister also got her dress from there last year. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a wedding dress in Los Angeles.

I only had minor alterations done at this store, but was very pleased with the results. I had little ruched cap sleeves added to my strapless dress and they turned out exactly how I wanted. The service was courteous and pleasant. My only small complaint that even though I had an appointment, I did have to wait 15-30 minutes both times I came in and the store was rather difficult to get a hold of over the phone and wasn't quick to return messages. I also had my dress and veil steamed there and everything turned out great.

Brides Beware of this dress shop! I bought a gorgeous Casablanca gown there and had the following experience. During my first fitting, I asked if there would be any issue with the spaghetti straps. They assured me they'd be fine. On the day of my wedding, the dress had been on for 5 minutes when the first strap snapped and within 30 minutes, the second strap snapped. The negative impact this dress malfunction had on my wedding was profound. When I took it back to them, they accepted no responsibility and blamed it on the dress manufacturer, who they claim they contacted and was also unwilling to compensate me for the losses this problem caused. The most they offered was to launder and "store" the dress, which turned out to be a lie because when I got it home, I discovered they had not " stored it" right and I don't know if they did bother to launder it.

Other things to be aware of if you choose to buy your dress here:

1. This is a popular shop and you will likely end up waiting a while for every fitting appointment.

2. When you pick up your dress, they will not prep and package it in their own material - you literally need to bring a BED SHEET from home. They neglected to tell me this and when I arrived without a sheet, they sent me to Kmart to buy a bed sheet. This was for a $3,000 dress!!??!! I was horrified about this.

3. They want you to pay in 100% cash. This is something they also neglected to tell me. When I showed up the day before my wedding and they asked for the balance in cash, I didn't have it and had no way of getting it. After much debate between Liza and her husband, they agreed to take a credit card. Without telling me, they charged me a service fee (which is illegal). When I challenged them, they admitted their wrong-doing and gave me the fee back in cash.

I suggest finding a different shop.

I don't have much to say about Ani and Brides by Liza other than they made me the most perfect bride ever. I found my dress out of state and then came to them to order it and have it altered. They were wonderful! The cutest little shop and so talented. I wanted to change a few things about my dress and it came out perfect! I stressed over carrying it on the plane and they told me exactly what to do. Honestly, I looked at 13 bridal shops and in the end fell in love with Brides by Liza! Go there!

There aren't enough nice words to describe Liza, Ani and the rest of her team. Not only is she an amazing designer and seamstress, she's a wonderful, warm person and she always made me feel comfortable and beautiful as she designed and made my wedding dress. I am NOT an easy person to fit and her team really worked magic to put my gown together. Her staff was easy to work with, friendly and efficient and I would never have had a dress that fit me so perfectly if it hadn't been for her. She also has the uncanny ability to look at you and know what dress would be perfect, I went in looking for something completely different than what I walked out with and Liza was right. She knew what I wanted better than I was able to dream or articulate and in between sharing stories of her boys and making me feel like part of the family she created my perfect dress. She also worked with my family on our budget and was able to custom make both my dress and my veil for what we could afford. Yes, she seems a little pricey compared to a budget department store wedding dress but she's not making a dress that will fit a million different women, she's making a dress that's perfect for you.

The staff is friendly and nice. The only reason I ordered my dress here is because they happened to be the first to put a hold on the one I wanted and because I had very limited time. They did a decent job altering my dress, although they charged me far too much for it and the seams on top came out a little wavy (didn't match the other side). They also forgot to make my veil, so I had to wait for it when I picked up the dress. It was only about 20 minutes, but it should have been made.
Liza is nice and does a good job, but I wouldn't have gotten my dress here if it hadn't for my circumstances.

My dress was fantastic!! Liza and her assistant Ani are such special ladies. I bought my dress weeeelllll before my wedding and hadn't been in since I put the down payment, Liza remembered me immediately and that might not seem important but to me it was. Now this is no cheap-o dress shop so be prepared to spend some money. This was my splurge where other things weren't as important to me, but I know I'll be handing this dress over to my daughter (if I have one). And in my opinion it'll be as beautiful and stylish in 30 years as it was this year.

Liza made a custom dress for me at an amazing price. I was able to bring in some pictures of the dress I wanted. I picked out the fabrics from over 50 swatches and had four fittings to tweak the details. The dress came out amazing. There were some issues that I had with last minute adjustments and she addressed them the following day and fixed all my concerns. I was so nervous about the process, not knowing what the result would be, Liza did an amazing job, the dress was incredible.

I purchased my Maggie Soterro dress because they do altering. I wanted to add some accents with pink ribbons and crystals... what I got were sequence beading that was VERY cheap. I paid an extra 2k to have this work done and it was awful. I had to argue and argue with the owner. She was supposed to put PINK crystals and a broche in front of my dress and instead she used CHEAP sequence. I was horrified. It was difficult to get in touch with her and she was very defensive about her work. After a lot of complaining I "finally" got what I had paid for. My bridesmaid dresses came out freat but my last bridesmaid she used different material and you could tell. She definitely overcharged us. We spend in total for my 6 bridesmaid, me and my mother... over $6k. I would not recommend going to her. Trust me on this one!

She also gave me my dress in a wrapped sheet that she told me was pressed. We opened it and it was WRINKLED big time! I had to take it to a dry cleaner to get fixed as I did not trust taking it back to the shop. I was lucky I got the dress back 3 days before the wedding, otherwise I would not have had time to fix it.

I cannot say enough about how awful my experience was with Liza. I paid almost $4000 for my dress. During one of my final fittings I put on my dress and it had several 1-2 inch scissor cuts in it! I was devastated. Now, mind you that she would not allow me to put the dress on without long white gloves....the first thing she (liza) says to me was, "how did that happen?"...I was looking at her thinking "Are youy kidding", then to add insult to injury she asks me if I did it! Why in the world and how in the world would I or anyone else do that? She had over 10 months to make my dress and did not have it ready until 2 days prior to my wedding. And then she made me bring sheets from home to put it in. My bridesmaids dresses were awful. Most , although custom made did not fit propely, and she was very difficult about fixing them. The men's ties were by far the WORST. We went several times to pick them up and they were not ready. She charged us $75 per tie for 8 ties and they were crap! They were poorly constructed, too narrow, not lined, the thread they used to sew them was a diferent color and cheap. And on top of eveything they were missing! Afte hours of struggling with her that I had to leave for the hotel and we needed to pick them up, he husband arrived. "I swear to God" at my parent's house with a plastic Ralphs bag with the ties inside the bad and they were all wrinkled.
She never gave me receipts, made me pay cash and gave me awful service. I saw several other brides angry and crying in her shop. TOgether with my wedding gown, bride's maid dresses, my bridal shower dress, the flower girl and ring bearer attire and groom's men ties we spend over $10,000 at her shop. Very very disappointing. The only redeeming quality was that my dress turned out okay...not great, but ok.
