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.

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

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.

Jo-Lin's is an amazing formal wear and bridal shop. My daughter was so nervous about even beginning to look for a wedding dress that she had been avoiding it for weeks, but she had purchased a dress from Jo-Lin's for a formal event and loved it. So one afternoon we went in just to look. After 5 minutes of looking she found a dozen dresses that she liked and started to try on. Linda came over and spoke with my daughter for a few minutes and took her over to show her the dress that she thought would be the one. And sure enough, that was the dress. My daughter tried it on and started glowing. It was the dress. It took Linda 5 minutes to find the perfect dress for my girl. I believe this was the easiest part of all the wedding preparations. I will be forever grateful to Linda and her team for making this process so easy and enjoyable. Many thanks from a very grateful Mom.

I LOVED my dress from Jo-Lin's. They were so helpful and so sweet. They compliment you without having that "sale's tone," meaning, you know they aren't just trying to make a sale, they really mean what they are saying. Couldn't have been happier with my dress. A neat atmosphere at their shop, too. I didn't mind places like David's Bridal finding dresses for me to try on, but I liked being able to look through dresses on my own at Jo-Lynn's. Originally, I wasn't even going for a dress at all like the one I got. But I saw it and just decided to try it on anyway and LOVED it. I highly recommend Jo-Lynn's.

I can't say enough positive about Jo Lin's. They helped my daughter to find the perfect dress and accessories. The staff was eager to help and very professional. They were also very helpful in ordering the bridesmaids dresses when most of them were from out of town. When we had a question at the last minute about the fit of the dress they even let us in after they closed!

The salon staff was always very helpful and friendly. The store has such a wide variety of dresses and is willing to order any additional accessories. My only critique is that the seamstress has very limited hours and it was difficult to schedule fittings with my work schedule.

In addition to a wedding dress, the wedding party ordered 8 tuxedos for a wedding. There were 4 tuxes called in and 4 tuxes measured at Jo Lins. Of the 8 tuxes, ONLY 1 TUX ACTUALLY FIT! When we talked to the owner about the problem, she did not take responsibility for the poorly fitted tuxes. Her attitude was "it's not my problem", even the ones that they measured.
Very disappointed in customer service - once they have your money the customer service is over!

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.
