Please make sure you see Lavina during the week. On the weekends she has young girls there who are not as experienced. I tried on my dress in the store and it was swimming on me. The girl sized me and ordered me the same size I tried on. When I picked up the dress it fit, but it was much smaller and I compared it to the size of the dress in the store and were both correct. They don't tell you that it size in the store is all stretched out and I should buy the size up or purchase extra material. In the end the seamstress was able to make adjustments, but PLEASE do not go there on the weekends when Lavinia is not there.

Lavinia was the nicest woman, until she got her money. We had a lot of problems with our dresses. The zipper in the backs would get caught on the fabric, some wouldn't even zip at all. When we took one of the dresses back one of her sales staff had the nerve to say "Well, maybe she gained weight".

2 other of the bridesmaids were pregnant and she had ordered them the wrong size. She tried to charge them again, the full price of the gown because HER measurements were off.

Another bridesmaid is a little bit bigger then the rest and she ordered her a dress that was too small, when in fact she actually lost weight, she got her measurements in the beginning of the year. When we took the dress somewhere else to be let out it was actually too short on her. She is 5'6 the dress is suppose to fit a woman of 5'8. While we were at the other place getting it altered she informed us, without wanting to place blame, but the dress was actually made for a wide petite.

Like I said, she is the most pleasurable woman to work with, but as soon as you pay her beware of a complete attitude change.

We worked with Lavinia's on the Tuxes for our wedding. My now husband and I decided on the look we wanted together, but then he ran with getting everything we needed. Lavinia was absolutely key to getting this done and wonderful to work with.

A week before our wedding we had a few issues with the style of shirts being used with the tuxes. We also didn't receive the tuxes we had ordered which was terrifying as we had 8 to account for. We were scrambling and completely freaked out when we heard from one of our groomsmen (we were away for the weekend..yikes). However, my husband immediately got in contact with Lavinia and her staff to fix the problem. We know she went through a lot to get us exactly what we wanted, but she pulled through and got the tuxes in that Wednesday to make sure we had enough time to make sure each tux fit perfectly. And the day of all of our guys looks liked movie stars... honestly gorgeous. Exactly what we wanted! We are so grateful to Lavinia for helping make our wedding vision come to life!

My mother and I both bought our gowns from Lavinia's Bridal, and we both could not have been happier. Lavinia truly shows the years of experience she has but also has a personal touch and cares for each of her brides and clients. I trusted Lavinia with every cut and stitch and could only wish to wear that dress every day of my life. From recommendations on various alterations or additions, to executing each one, Lavinia has a eye for style that only shows her years of experience. I can not say enough great things about Lavinia, we even shared tears on the last day, while picking up my gown. It was such an incredible experience and I would recommend her to every bride looking for a personal touch, a person that will work with whatever you want and a beautiful smile along with it. Thank you Lavinia for making me feel absolutely stunning!

BRIDES BEWARE!!!!!! VERY disappointed with service & product. I'd wanted a small boutique bridal experience & I got a nightmare. I was promised everything would go smoothly & my BMs were that were affordable. When we got there the girls could only find a very few dresses that were under $300 & what they had to choose from wasn't pretty. We ordered anyway- 9 months in advance & the dresses came in 2 WEEKS before my wedding! Nobody told us there would be such a delay & when we asked about it I got very rude calls from the owner. I was also promised alterations would be done swiftly... she didn't mention that she meant SLOPPY. the straps on my BM dresses were sewn on all twisted, 2 of them popped off during my reception. My mothers dress didn't fit AT ALL & looked terrible & I was told that it wouldn't be an issue to add straps to my bridal gown... well a week before my wedding Lavinia called me & tersely told me she couldn't do it & it was MY fault!! I had to run into Manhattan to find trim FOR her to do it with. The shop is dirty, the owner is lazy basically Lavinia is a snake oil saleswoman. She talks a big game, but does NOT deliver on any of her 'promises'. SHe also bad mouthed other brides behind their backs during fittings!! I am SO upset with the unprofessional, selfish, lazy behavior. Do NOT go to Lavinia's unless you are looking for a horrible over priced experience from a woman who is happy to swipe your credit card & then completely forget all about you!

Lavinia went above and beyond for my daughter-in-law. She needed to change her dress a couple of months before the wedding and she helped us find a gorgeous dress! She becomes more than a vendor, she becomes a friend!

She went out of her way to assist me and my bridesmaids with their dresses. She is superb. Excellent customer service. I HIGHLY recommend her.

Lavinia was such an absolute pleasure to work with. My dress was a vintage style that she helped me track down by calling the designer. She helped me customize my dress (train length, beadwork, adding a jacket, etc.) and was so careful about all the tiny details that went into my wedding attire. She steamed my veil to the point that it moved like silk instead of tulle. She handcrafted my husband's cravat style tie and tracked down an uncommon suit combination for us, all without the slightest complaint over how complicated we made things. My only hesitation in giving her a perfect 5 is that on the day of the wedding my dress still needed the last hem. It was an inch too long, but honestly, only myself and my mother even noticed. Lavinia is OUTSTANDING, really cares about her brides, and goes above and beyond to make sure you are taken care of.

Lavinia worked with us to find my dream dress!! I had seen it at another bridal shop but was way out of my price range....Lavinia saw a picture of me in the dress and went on the hunt! Later that night I got a call and she found the dress!! Lavinia worked wonders on my alterations, hand-sewed the bustle and had a beautiful veil that complimented my dress. Her services and quality of work was awesome!
