This bridal store is completely lacking in the way it treats customers! Linda the manager is also the worse by far! When I called asking a few questions about my dress she was so rude and did not offer any help or solutions, when they were the ones that took my measurements, maybe they need to be better trained on taking measurements but either way she did not have to be rude to me! Will not go back here and will spread the word to others not to!

Jo-Lin's Bridal was awesome!!!! When I went to pick out my dress it was after hours. They set up a little tasting evening for myself and my family and friends. They provided us with snacks and wine and had multiple wedding dresses picked based on what I had told them I was looking for. The 3rd dress they had picked out for me ended up being my wedding dress and the dress of my dreams!!!! Even though my mom made me try on 14 more wedding dress. They also ordered all of my bridesmaids dresses and had them altered along with my dress. They had it steamed and ready for me along with my veil on the day of my bridal portraits and on the day of the wedding. They made everything so easy and made all of us look amazing. Thanks Jo-Lin

I got my wedding dress from Jo Lin's. The women were all very nice, but I was told that the gown I purchased (off the rack) would be easily shortened. When I took it to a tailor, they basically refused to do it because of how much work it would be. (Had to remove lace trim and then reattach after shortening.) The seamstress at Jo Lin's wanted 3 months to do any type of altering to it. Thankfully we had a family friend who could do it in 2 weeks!

I would recommend this vendor as long as you have a hefty budget and plenty of time to be altered.

My mom and I got our dresses here for my sister's wedding and in the beginning things were great. Our dresses are beautiful. It did take an extremely long time for mine to come in though and every time I called to checked on the status they said they would call me back....never did. My mom and I both scheduled our alterations on the same day. They do first come first serve for alterations which is slightly annoying, but I can understand since some people in the past have been no shows. We came back a second time thinking we would just our dresses on and then leave. My mom's was perfect, mine on the other hand not so much. The only thing for mine was pulling the arms up and when she measured to see how much it fit great. When I was there the 2nd time the arms were WAY too tight - my arms were getting red in a manner of seconds. She remeasured to fix it. When I went to pick it up the price for alterations had gone up! Now why should I have to pay more when she is the one that screwed up? I didn't gain any weight so it wasn't my fault she measured and then sewed in 2 different spots!. When I was getting alterations done at David's bridal and they had to redo something I had already paid for, they honored their first price! Given the choice, I'll go to Jo-lin's for dresses but with plenty of time before the event but definitely not alterations.

I visited Jo-Lin's Bridal on Monday, September 16, 2013 at 11:00 am. I made sure I arrived at the store as soon as it opened. I was extremely excited about visiting the store because of all of the great designer dresses they carried. Linda was the employee on duty and I found her to be very rude. I asked her to assist me with locating the prices of a few gowns I was interested in trying and she said she couldn't do that. She suggested that I return to the store on a day when I had more time to find the prices myself because their "dresses have tags on them". I expressed to her that I did not live in Columbia and she told me she has plenty of brides who come from other areas of the State so I could come back another day. I was so disappointed in my visit that I left the store without even looking at any of the dresses. I was so upset by the lack of service I received that I called the store back and asked to speak with a manager. I was informed that the rude associate who assisted me was also the manager - Linda. After speaking with her regarding our encounter at the store she offered no apologies for her behavior, she simply said thank you. I do not recommend this store at all. Although, I spoke with several of the other employees prior to my arrival on the 16th and they were very helpful, Linda was awful. I think it would benefit the company as well as Linda to receive some customer service and even some cultural diversity training.

I bought all my prom and pageant dresses from JoLins so it only made sense that they would have the perfect wedding dress for me (and bridesmaid dresses for all my girls)! The ladies there are always so kind and helpful!!!

I purchased my dress from this vender and was pleased with my dress. It's more beautiful in person that it is online and I was able to order over the phone. There was a mix up on behalf of the vender that they did not fix which I was unhappy about but they were decent overall.

Very small selections and overpriced! Don't even think about looking at the fake Jewerly? Most of it cost more than a downpayment on a car!!! Some of the ladies are not helpful. We had a young girl look for a size on a dress and she couldn't find any. Then we looked a found some. Really need some updating on the place and better customer service.
