I went into this bridal shop yesterday in columbia, and was in there for more than 20 minutes with no one so much as greeting me. After another 5 or 10 minutes passing, me and my family was ready to walk out until one Rep stopped and asked if any one is helping me. She asked me what I was looking for and when is the wedding date. I told I was looking for a wedding dress and my wedding is March 2, 2018. The rep proceeds to ask me about colors and styles for bridesmaids dresses! Then asked me again what I was looking for. I told her wedding dresses, she asked me my price point and she pointed to a back wall ofclearance dresses. Mind you, I already saw dresses in my price point at normal price! These clearance dresses were stained, had beading that was hanging on by a thread and were just unappealing. All I wanted to do was get help finding a style, size, and color that worked best for me. Instead, I received no help and felt unwelcomed in the store. The dresses run three sizes small and no one told me that until I tried on two dresses on my own and was walking out of the store. That's worse thing you can do to a bride that's not model skinny! Needless to say I left highly upset and irritated; and took my business else where and found my dream in the same size as the ones I tried on at this store and it fit like a glove!

This is the best place to go to buy your dress and wedding accessories! The staff at Jo-Lin's is so friendly and always helpful. She has a beautiful selection of dresses, veils, shoes, belts, jewelry and headpieces. And her prices are amazing as well! I love my dress and accessories from JoLins.

I bought my wedding gown at Jo-Lin's, and I was absolutely pleased with my gown. I was pleased with the alterations done on my gown. Zero complaints about the alterations from Joan. She was great!

My problem with Jo-Lin's stems from a couple different things. I had a small, less formal wedding. My husband and I had already been married for 3 months, so I didn't really "feel like a bride." I felt a lot of pressure to buy things I didn't want. I didn't really want to spend a ton of money on a veil, but I definitely felt harassed about buying one during my first fitting. If a customer says "No, I don't want that," don't continue to tell them "but it's you're only chance to wear one."

I was also very frustrated with the scheduling of alterations. You pick a day, then it's "first come first serve" of the girls who show up for appointments starting at a certain time. I worked full-time on the other side of town, so I had to take time off work to come for alterations. It was very frustrating for me to rush all the way there, and then sit and wait for 2 hours before I even saw my dress because other girls showed up to get in line BEFORE the alterations time started, then left the shop to come back later. Every time I came for a fitting, I left feeling anxious and upset about the whole process. I honestly dreaded going for fittings, and that made me really sad. I wanted to enjoy the process. It shouldn't be this hard.

Also, at my first fitting (which was the longest fitting), I agreed to let another girl ahead of me because she just needed a final check before her gown was finished. This added another 15-20 mins to my wait. At my final fitting, when I just needed to put my dress on and make sure everything was finished (literally took ten mins), I had to wait for two other girls to do their first fittings ahead of me. They weren't asked if they minded letting me go before them. That bothered me. They clearly didn't value my time as a customer.

Hands down best bridal shop! They have so many dresses from so many different designers to choose from! All of the staff is super friendly and knowledgeable. They were so patient with me and helped me find my dream gown! I found my bridesmaid's dress here as well. I couldn't be happier with my whole experience at Jo-Lin's! I would highly recommend to anyone to shop here!!

Do not go here for any wedding attire! They do not have a large selection of dresses, are not professional or easy to work with and have the tiniest dressing rooms I've ever seen! I could hardly get one dress in the dressing room with me, much less someone to help me zip it up. Also, the dressing rooms do not have mirrors, so no matter what the dress looks like, you have to go out in front of everyone to even see yourself. The girl that helped me did not seem to know what she was doing and could not tell me whether the dress came in a different color. The other girls that were working there, Linda and Lauren, tried to convince me to try on dresses I knew I did not like. If I don't like it on the hanger, or it's not the style I'm looking for, why are you trying to make me try it on? Wedding dress shopping is already stressful enough. They also do not have any clamps or stools so she was constantly standing behind me, trying to hold the excess fabric of the dress that was two sizes too big so I could try to see what it would look like on me (because of course they only have the dresses in one size). There was so much extra fabric everywhere, it was hard to know what I was looking at. Don't even get me started on their veils. They think very highly of them and do not have much of a selection. A veil I tried on the first time I went was not there the second time I went and they tried to tell me it would be 3-6 months before they could get it in. Overall, just don't waste your time going here.

Wonderful wonderful wonderful! I'm so happy I came here to try on dresses. They have a huge selection, and let you walk around and pick what you want (they also help if you need it). But my mom, mil, and I walked around freely and chose what we liked and then tried them on without being harassed about budget and style and everything. I ended up buying a gorgeous dress that was affordable and chose my bridesmaid dresses here also. The bridesmaids were all long distance so it was a little challenging for me to get everything organized but they helped out a lot and all the girls got their dresses in plenty of time, and only 2 needed alterations! They are able to do fittings within the store and my dress fit perfectly on my wedding day! Super pleased, will recommend to anyone getting married. On top of being a great business, everyone is very friendly and helpful.

Everyone was really nice and professional. The only down side was that they didn't have a big selection of dresses. I was looking for a dress for the beach because I had a destination wedding.
