Stay far far away! I cannot emphasize how AWFUL our experience here was. We ordered 11 bridesmaids dresses and the bridal gown in the beginning of November, many of the dresses did not arrive until 4 days before the wedding (April 9th) and still needed to be fitted. Tammy and Eva were rude, not once were they helpful, reassuring or supportive. Something that should have been joyful turned into an absolute nightmare. In a huge market like New York, take your business elsewhere, you will be glad you did.

I purchased my gown from Lestans in February 2015 for my December 2015 wedding. My mother bought her wedding dress from lestans 30 years ago and I got my prom dress from them back in 2009. If you are looking for that beautiful wedding shop where they serve champagne , this is not the place, but if you are looking for a large selection of gowns at an affordable price, this is the place for you. Colette, the bridal consultant was a joy to work with. I brought in several photos for her and they had available my dream dress for me to try on. I purchased my dress the same day. I went back in March for the bridesmaid dresses, I forget the lady's name who helped us, but she was extremely helpful. We were able to pick out the perfect dress that fit all of my bridesmaid beautifully. I was told that around June my dress should be in for me to try it on. June came and went with no phone call. My mother contacted them and they said they were still waiting on it, we still had time. The mother of the bride dress came in very early, as did the bridesmaid dresses. When September came my dress was still not in. We were told they "didn't know where the dress was", as a bride who is already stressing about her big day, this added to it. About two weeks later we got a phone call that the dress was in. I went in for my first fitting, i had about 3 or 4 total. My dress was beautiful as were the bridesmaids and my mothers dress. My cup did fall out during the wedding, I don't know if it was bad seamstress work or just something that happened. The seamstress was a pleasure to work with., She was helpful and understanding, all my bridesmaids are of different sizes and shapes and she worked with us and made our dresses fit beautifully to our bodies.

Despite some of the negative reviews, I decided to go to Lestan's for my wedding gown as my mother had been familiar with the business since the 70's. The place does look like it's still in the 70's, but it was worth the trip as they have a very large selection of current wedding gowns. Collette was a fantastic bridal consultant. I showed her a picture of an Allure gown I had been looking out and she immediately grabbed several dresses for me. The Allure gown she picked out actually ended up looking better on me than than the one in the picture. She really knows her stuff and she is an absolute pleasure to work with. When I went for my fittings, I also had the opportunity to meet the owner Tami. She was a pleasure to work with as well - very knowledgeable of what works well and helpful. I had made the mistake of not picking out a veil at the same time as ordering my dress. Tami made sure that I would get the veil in on time. If you look passed the outdated decor and are the type of person that is open to consultant's having an opinion, then this store is well worth it. I think some of the extremely negative reviews are due to the fact that some of the clientele that go in there are a complete mess.

RUN AWAY AS FAST AS YOU CAN!!!!! This place was a nightmare they almost ruined my wedding!

I literally lost sleep worrying about if we would get the dresses in time before the wedding. We ended up getting a fake dress with the real labels sewn into it. That’s out right fraud!!!

I swear I would never write a horrible review like this about a company unless it was 100% truth. For your own good never go to Lestan’s. STAY AWAY!!!!!

I really hated wedding dress shopping. Usually I could only find one or two dresses that I liked in any given shop (I was looking for light, simple, pretty, not too fussy, and NO rhinestones).

Lestans, however, was perfect. There were some really quirky designs, some lovely, classic A-lines, and several in the middle--not too strange, but generally unlike anything you would find in most other bridal boutiques.

My bridal consultant was great--soft-spoken, understanding, frank but diplomatic, low to no pressure. The boutique was also a really pleasant environment--small, simple, quiet.

Love this place. Would recommend it to anyone in a heartbeat.

I've never wrote a review on WeddingWire or any other site for that matter before but this experience inspired me to write one....

Oh gosh where i begin? Lestans bridal helped me tremendously on my big day. We ordered everything through Lestan (bridal gown, bridesmaids dresses, shoes, tuxes, accessories, veil..etc). They gave me guidance on everything in the style i was looking for. My salesperson suggested color schemes that would look nice in pictures as well. She was extremely attentive, honest, SO patient, and never once put pressure on me to buy anything. Everything came on time, if not earlier than expected. What I love best about Lestans Bridal is that I don't feel like I'm in a wedding factory, their customer service is outstanding, and the price fits right in my budget. I've felt so comfortable throughout the entire process with Lestans Bridal. I definitely recommend Lestans Bridal to anyone that wants to be treated like a bride. Did I mention I LOVE my dress? :)

I bought my wedding dress here and could not have been happier with the experience. I mostly worked with Colete who really knows her stuff. Every option she picked out for me was beautiful. The dress I ended up choosing was just "meh" on the hanger and in another store I may have just walked by it, but when Colete suggested I try it on, wow. I wanted something simple, elegant, and modern, but not super trendy or a dress I've seen 1000 times in people's facebook pictures. I got exactly that.

The whole experience was great and I was so happy I didn't buy my dress, or even have to look for a dress, in one of those "bridal factories," trying on dresses in front of 6 other customers or feeling rushed or pressured.

They really made the whole dress shopping and fitting process so pleasant and stress free. I'm so happy I found this boutique and I will recommend it to any of my friends who get engaged.

While trying on bridal dresses, I visited a number of boutiques and larger stores in Brooklyn and Manhattan. Generally, I found the experience boring, as most dresses in my price point looked very similar and I was completely confused as to how to pick one over another.

My experience with Lestan Bridal shop was entirely different. My bridal consultant, Collete, provided several styles for me to try on, each one different from the rest, each embodying a totally different look for a different type of bride. She suggested that I try on one dress in particular that I never would have selected for myself, but that ended up being my perfect dress.

I wasn't sure about the dress in my first visit. I decided that I would think about it and come back after I put some thought into it. When I returned, I tried on only that dress and purchased it on the spot.

All of the employees were all wonderful, friendly, and accommodating, and the seamstress was extremely willing to tweak the tiniest aspect of the dress to ensure that it was perfect.

Everyone at my wedding loved the dress and I was so, so happy with my choice. I have never felt more beautiful (and at the same time, comfortable!) than I did in my dress.

I highly recommend Lestan Bridals for any bride looking for a wedding dress to reflect her personality. Their well curated inventory includes short and long dresses in numerous styles and they are a true pleasure to work with.

I have gone to other bridal stores and felt frustrated, rushed, overwhelmed and stressed!!! BUT this heaven sent Bridal boutique truly made my whole wedding planning experience one that I can finally get excited about! When I came in I was greeted really warmly and felt the relaxed ambiance right from the start. my salesperson was amazing! In fact she found my wedding dress for me based on what I was looking at and my reactions to those dresses she brought a few options along the line and after 3 dresses she found THE ONE! I must have tried on 10 dresses and she never once got exasperated with me. I also don't really like when the sales person schmoozes you too much and gives way too much opinions where you aren't able to think clearly. she was so gracious and knew just when to give some needed input and mostly let me have a moment with each and every dress.
She was very patient and knowledgeable as well as innovative in how a dress can be changed if there is something that may suit you better. I wound up getting my bridal gown, maid of honor gown, bridesmaids dresses, veil, headpiece and blusher. Truly an amazing experience!!!

I would have to disagree with the negative reviews since they sound like angry bridezillas. My wedding was in January I was running out of time to order the dress and I came upon Lestans Bridal. I immediately received a warm welcome from the sales rep. for help. I told them what I was looking for and they recommended some dresses for me to try on. I ended up buying my dream dress thanks to the wonderful staff @ Lestans Bridal. They were never pushy and was willing to work with me on my budget. The service was impeccable as the staff there was very professional !!! Highly recommend any brides to be to visit this salon if they want real customer service !!
