The employees at Lovely Bride are the best. After having a bad experience somewhere else, I was worried about finding a dress I liked and was being to think the process was too stressful. All of that changed when I went to Lovely Bride. The environment is calm and stress-free. It is a smaller boutique store, and very manageable with a lot of non-traditional options in addition to what you would expect. All of the employees are sweet and helpful and great at what they do. I had no idea what I wanted, but they brought me a few different things and quickly caught on to my style and what looked good. I found the perfect dress in about 45 minutes and was really happy. I can't say enough about this store-- and the people that truly make the experience special as it should be.

If you like dresses that are a little more non-traditional and casual this is the perfect place. In a new venue with twice as much space as the last and fantastic staff this store was the perfect place for me. I wanted a pretty casual dress and found the most perfect Australian designer dress that was exactly what I wanted.

I found my dream dress at Lovely Bride on a trip to New York. Trying on dresses at the store was very nice, and I loved the atmosphere. It was relaxing and beautiful, which was great for an experience that has the potential to be a stressful one. However, things went downhill after ordering the dress. My order was transferred to a new sales associate after not receiving a return call from the shop for weeks; and the new associate called me to ask what the notes meant from the associate that fitted me for my dress. I appreciate the call to at least make sure she understood, but it left me feeling like my order was dropped and not that important to the store. I later found out that Lovely Bride placed my order far after they said they had, and told me that the delay was an issue with the designer. This left me rushing around for alterations and a design for the bustle at a local tailor stressfully close to my wedding day, which shouldn't have happened considering I ordered the dress about 11 months before my wedding date. In addition, I ordered a sash from Lovely Bridal. What they sent me was far from the quality and type of the sash I tried on in the store, as the beaded section was glued to a ribbed and fraying ribbon when I received it. Again, we were left racing around for other options and ended up having to purchase a sash elsewhere. Overall, the shop is lovely, but my experience after placing my order was far from it.

Overall a good experience. However, when I was measured for my size (at the shop) and went to order by phone at a later date I was told I would need a six 6... 2-3 sizes larger than what I normally wear (which I understand dress sizes are different than regular clothes, but not that different). We needed up ordering a size 4, but after receiving my dress in the mail it was pretty clear that I needed a 2, and I hadn't lost any weight/size since I was measured. I ended up having to pay more to have it altered everywhere and the stress of finding someone in a non-major city that wouldn't butcher my dress was intense.

They did have a good selection of dresses though and it is definitely a shop for the slightly less traditional bride.

The girls at Lovely Bride are wonderful. I came in the first time by myself to try and figure out what I liked (before bringing my family into the mix). The woman who helped me, Taylor, was so nice, so helpful, even offering to take pictures of me on my phone in the dresses I liked so that I could reference them while I considered my options - simply unheard of at other salons. There was no pressure put on me to buy anything that day, in fact, she told me there was a trunk sale in July for the designer I was interested in, so either way I should come back then to buy my dress. What?! So freaking awesome. Seriously go there.

I had a wonderful experience at Lovely. It was my first and only appointment. Their dresses are unique, beautiful and affordable. My consultant was very sweet and helpful. I tried on dresses that I thought I would love and would look good with my shape, but none of them felt right. In the last 10 minutes, she recommended a dress that I would never have picked for myself, and it was perfect! I bought it that day. She also did not show me any dresses that were over my budget. They do not provide on-site alterations, but they do have several seamstresses that they recommend at various price ranges. My family lives in NJ, so I decided to have the dress shipped to their house and will find somewhere closer to do the alterations. It arrived perfect and beautifully packaged. Lovely is a great place to go if you're looking for an easy dress shopping experience. Highly recommend!

Cassandra (a manager to boot!) has been extremely unfriendly and rude when I posed questions about my wedding dress.

Even when I went in for my initial appointment, I had to wait for several minutes before they took me in - they preach about being on time for an appointment they themselves are several (20) minutes late to. And when checking out, I was waiting for over a half an hour while they struggled with getting the paperwork ready to be reviewed and signed by me.

Even though they are a boutique, the feeling is surely not of one when the treatment is as unfriendly and not at all personalized. Very, very poor experience. I am sad to say this as this is my first (and hopefully only) wedding and the first place I went to in order to try on dresses. Very shabby.

Oh and I did ask the owner return my call so I could address my concerns with her; I was told she would - this was weeks ago. No call, no email. Nothing.
Like I said, shabby.

If you are looking for a modern bridal salon that is cozy, stylish, and unique then Lovely Bride in NYC is the place you have to go. Initially I scheduled an appointment to try on one specific dress. Luckily, the stylist convinced me to try on a few dresses, which is how I found my wedding gown designed by Leanne Marshall and veil designed by Erica Koesler.

The staff at Lovely Bride were extremely professional and thorough during my first appointment. They made me feel very special and did a great job helping me with my wedding dress. I recommend that if you pick up your dress and have an issue with it that you make sure to address the issue right then and there and also make sure to speak to a manager. I had a few questions about my dress which were answered by the stylist that was helping me during my appointment roughly 6 months before my wedding. I trusted her opinion but unfortunately I was told inaccurate information that was discovered about 2 months before my wedding during alterations. It took multiple emails, phone calls, and more $$ to get everything sorted out. At the end of the day, the staff at Lovely Bride did a great job contacting the designer and did their best to resolve the issue in a timely fashion.

I highly recommend checking out Lovely Bride on your search for the perfect gown. The Staff at Lovely Bride are receptive and open to feedback so make sure you speak up if you have a issue and check to make sure the information is accurate. I HIGHLY recommend Lovely Bride for anyone looking for a special wedding dress experience.

I went to a bunch of large dress vendors and this small adorable boutique had more of a selection than all of the other dress shops combined...in my price range! I found multiple dresses here that were very beautiful. I also liked that they have you take a look around and pick what you like (of course they help and walk with you), so that you don't have to worry if your stylist is missing something. It is a very small store so reservations are necessary. I really had a great experience at lovely, my dress came in early too! My only complaint is there is no seamstress on site so I had to find my own, though they do offer recommendations (their suggestions are expensive!).

Summary: irresponsible about shipping and deadlines.

Full story: I bought my wedding dress here almost a year before my wedding, and enjoyed the experience. Cute store, nice merchandise. No dress issues.

However, I came back to purchase a sash, knowing I was cutting it pretty close to my wedding date. I was assured it would arrive within plenty of time. As my wedding approached, I called and emailed about the status to no response--no one could tell me when it would arrive.

10 days before my wedding, I called (at this point very concerned) and was told the sash had arrived and would be sent out to arrive over the weekend, in time for my final dress fitting.

My credit card was charged (no delays on their end there!) but when I called on Friday, the sash was still there. It just sat there for four days when I had explained the urgency, it was promised to arrive by Friday, and just...no one bothered to send it.

No one seemed concerned or apologetic about this situation and sure, they're not the ones stuck paying rush fees on the tailoring, leaving work early to pick the sash up in person, or calling constantly throughout the weeks looking for updates. But if a wedding vendor can be so blasé about meeting deadlines for someone getting married in a week, something feels terribly off

You can find the same merchandise, often at better prices, elsewhere. The store is cute (and as a west village resident I like to try to support smaller stores) but I am extremely disappointed that I took thousands of
dollars of business here to be treated like this.

I won't be recommending to my engaged or soon-to-be-engaged friends. Be careful.

From the second I walked into the LA store, I knew this would be the place that I would find my dress. This cute, hip boutique carries dresses from less mainstream designers like Ivy & Aster, Elizabeth Dye, and Sarah Seven. If you're a bride that is not looking for a traditional puffy princess or fitted mermaid-y kind of dress, this is the place to go.

The store is bright, clean, and sweet. The sales associates let you peruse the racks to pick out dresses to try and will make suggestions of their own. They are also careful not to let you pick out dresses that are outside of your budget.

My first appointment was with Whitney who was very helpful and knowledgeable. I was torn between two dresses and was never pressured to make a decision. I went back last week to have another look. My second appointment was with Merrill and she was so sweet and helpful. I found another dress that I fell in love with. We talked about all of the ways that it could be altered to be exactly what I wanted, like different kinds of bustles and trains, etc. All things I know very little about. I ended up buying it that day!

If you're a bride that finds the idea of formal, fussy dress shopping completely daunting, try Lovely!

the ladies at lovely are absolutely LOVELY and fabulous! this shop was my first appointment, and i was nervous and didn't know what to expect. i fell in love with the shop and the girls and was so delighted to be there! i picked lovely because they carry elizabeth dye, who is a special designer to me. i used to work across the street from her shop, the english dept, in portland and have been in love with all of her work for years. on the first day we met in person (we had been introduced by friends via facebook, as he lived in california and i in portland), we had a kiss fest across the street from the english dept!

walking into the shop was magical. my friend and i jumped right in and started looking at dresses and the first dress i went to was elizabeth dye's tea/blush. i picked a few others that i liked and started trying them on. the first two were gorgeous, but it wasn't until i tried on tea/blush that i knew, this was my dress!! whitney was so sweet and supportive and let me try it on twice. i am so glad that i found my dress here. the girls are so personable and friendly, very down to earth. the shop is gorgeous. plush chairs, decadent fabrics, nice smelling lotion in the wash room. i could not have asked for a better experience! this shop is also in a cute part of weho and is just back far enough from the craziness that it feels like a different world.

thank you whitney and merrill!!

I love this shop. It's has a wonderful atmosphere and the woman who helped me choose my dress was great. If you don't want a cookie cutter poofy strapless dress this is the place to go--they have lots of less traditional options. They also let you look through the racks and choose the dresses you want to try on, which is awesome! It's by far the best dress shop I visited in NYC and is where I bought my dress. I LOVE this place. However, I did find a couple faults with them. 1. The appointments (which need to be booked pretty far in advance) are only 1 hour, compared to 90 minutes at most other places. I found this to be a little too short and had to come in a second time before finding my dress. 2. While the consultant who helped me find my dress was amazing, I was a little disappointed with my appointment to pick up the dress. At that appointment--which doubles as an accessories appointment--I didn't feel that the consultant was particularly interested in helping me; although I did find a beautiful hair clip during the appointment.

Brides Beware. Please read.
I ordered my dress back in January. It was my dream dress like any other bride's. I couldn't wait for the call that I got in May that my dress was in. I went to pick it up and try it on with my shoes and it was too short. They couldn't believe this happened, but I could when I looked back at the receipt they never took the hip to floor measurement. I was reassured that I have plenty of time and they would reorder my dress to my length.

I was called to come back in July where I found the same dress, extra fabric, the manager Cassandra, and a seamstress (who was never recommended by Lovely when the dress first came in). We were assured that there would not be an addition to the dress and we left feeling confused as to how they were going to finish the dress. I was told it would be ready in a week and a half and don't worry I have plenty of time.

Five weeks later, I got the call that the dress was ready. When my mother and I showed up at the store the dress was in a bag and they were ready for me to take the bag and walk out. My mom insisted that we try it on before we leave. Low and behold the dress looked terrible. The length was patched on and a thick seam was visible around the bottom of my dress. Cassandra tried to pass off the work onto my seamstress to fix. My mom and I both were extremely upset with how the management had handled the situation. Even a sales girl there said it looked terrible and she felt horrible that the work was not checked before we were called down to the shop once again. Cassandra also told me the last time I was there that I needed to lose a few pounds and again I was told don't worry you still have time. There were no apologizes just a lack of feeling for me as a bride going through this ordeal. Cassandra later told my mother that they should have never sold me the dress, yet they tried to send me out the door with it twice.

I cannot even begin to express my appreciation for Merrill of Lovely Bride in LA and Katherine from Ivy and Aster! I was SO lucky to be able to work with both girls before my wedding. I was in a crazy situation, I had purchased a dress, but after alterations were made, I realized it just didn't fit my personality. Thus, bride without a dress = time to panic! Little did I know that there was no need to panic because everything would work out just the way it was supposed to in the end. ;)

Initially, I was so stressed about finding a dress that would photograph well, or that my friends would like, and that my new husband would love that I forgot I needed to feel beautiful and confident in my dress too. Important, right?! ;) So, with less than 3 months to go, I started looking for a dress that would make me fall in love. I LOVED Ivy and Aster gowns and contacted Katherine who found the dress of my dreams and shipped it to Merrill at Lovely Bride in LA.

Lovely Bride is TOTALLY my style! So sweet yet elegant, extremely feminine, and seriously LOVELY! The store atmosphere just exudes grace and beauty. Merrill, the store manager, greeted me with a huge smile when I arrived, and she was so excited to be able to help! She knew my situation and I could tell she truly cared and wanted to get me the dress of my dreams. Merrill helped me try on my dress and even though I was there to try on one specific dress, the Ivy and Aster Poetry gown, she also helped me try on two Sarah Seven gowns, that were just gorgeous too. It was good to be able to see myself in several gowns that I loved. However, there was no question. As soon as I put on the Ivy and Aster gown, I knew it was the one. I didn't feel any pressure from Merrill to buy the gown, she really just wanted to see me happy. She understands what it's like to be a bride and the importance of finding the right dress. Merrill also took the time to communicate with me via email to make sure I was okay. When I needed alterations, I also went to Merrill for guidance because I wanted to be sure everything was perfect for the big day.

I had an amazing experience and I would recommend Lovely to any bride-to-be. They go above and beyond what is expected to ensure you are truly happy! :) Going to Lovely for my Ivy and Aster gown was one of the best decisions I made for the big day! Finding the perfect dress just puts your mind at ease and everything else falls right into place!!! Good luck girls! Go get that perfect dress! ;) And thank you, Merrill! You rock! :)

This is the most amazing bridal store. It is THE store for the non-cookie-cutter bride, the bride who doesn't dream of yards of beaded silk satin or the bride who wants a short dress. Lovely has a great selection of beautiful dresses of lots of different styles. The consultants are all young, hip and super friendly. They would not allow me to look at anything outside my budget. The space itself is a stylish brownstone that you just want to move right in to. I found my perfect fun dress there and stayed well under budget. I received so many compliments on my dress and its unique look. I have told every bride-to-be I know about this store. The one thing that might be an issue for others - they do NOT provide in-house tailoring but DO provide excellent recommendations for tailors.

As a lifelong tomboy, I had no idea what I was looking for when I began dress shopping, but I walked out of Lovely knowing 100% without a doubt that I had found the dress for me. The girls at Lovely could not have been (for lack of a better word) lovelier. It took me 3 visits before I was able to commit fully (big decision!), but I never felt pressured in the slightest. I even returned for my veil and hair accessories. I visited several dress shops throughout the shopping process, and Lovely was without a doubt the coziest, warmest, most FUN experience of them all.

This place came recommended but I had a horrible experience. The manager had done my measurements completly wrong ordering my dress way way too big. In the end they recognized their mistake and paid for the alterations. Unfortunately altering a dress that big for my frame didn't really work out. My dress was ill fitting and I hated it. You can't really make that better.

Before I had any idea what I wanted in a wedding dress, I knew I wanted to buy it at Lovely. Dress shopping at Levely was such an easy and comfortable experience, even while I was overwhelmed with every other aspect of planning my wedding. When I didn't find a dress I loved on my first trip, I ended up buying a dress somewhere else, but didn't stop checking in with changes and additions to Lovely... and then Ivy & Astor was introduced, and I knew I would be back. Luckily I was able to return the first dress I bought, and couldn't have been happier with my decision!

While most brides begin looking for a gown a year in advance, we planned a last minute wedding so I needed a gown in 3 months. Lovely was able to find a vendor to accommodate me. But I by no means settled. My gown was a beautiful Grecian gown by Ivy & Aster and I am still in love with it.

Lovely is a wonderful shop. Its very charming, not overwhelming. The staff is helpful, sweet, yet professional. I love the designers they carry.

I would recommend them to any bride.

As corny as it sounds, buying a dress at Lovely Bridal Shop was a lovely experience. The store is very cute and low-key with a happy vibe. The staff were so nice and I didn't feel pressured to buy a dress. They were very patient and offered suggestions for other dresses and accessories. Lovely was the first place I went, after finding them through NYMag, and after going to one other store I just knew I wanted a dress from Lovely. It is small so not the largest selection, but the experience was great and I loved my wedding dress. And although they don't do alterations in-house, their recommendation to go to Esin and Sew Elegant was great and she did a fabulous job tweaking the dress.

Lovely is a beautiful and comfortable place to find your wedding dress. I had been to one bridal outlet and one sample sale before going to Lovely, and it was such a relief. The other places I had been were overwhelming with their too-large selections and lack of service. While there are dresses at Lovely at the same or lower prices compared to the outlet/sample sale, every single dress is gorgeous and the service is great. Cassandra helped me to find a beautiful, flattering dress in my budget and style and it was a fun and relaxing experience. When the dress came it was several sizes too big, but that was nothing a seamstress couldn't fix. Try Lovely before you try anywhere else!

Lovely makes shopping for a wedding gown fun and comfortable. I made the mistake of going to other bridal salons before going to lovely, so I knew that shopping for a wedding gown at most salons is more painful than anything else. However, Lovely has a modest number of gowns (which I appreciated), a really pretty setting filled with pretty items, and a staff that knows what they're talking about but gives you space to do what you need to do. The staff at Lovely let's you put on the dress by yourself, and only comes into the dressing room with you if you ask them to help you. They also let you take pictures! They help you try on accessories with different dresses, but they don't make you feel pressured to buy anything. My only tiny complaint is that my dress came in late. I paid a significant amount of money for a 10 week rush (because I shopped closer to my wedding than I should have), and the dress didn't come in when it was supposed to. I made several calls to Lovely, and they were always very nice, but I didn't end up getting the dress until about 2 weeks later. However, Lovely made sure I didn't pay the full amount for the rush, and I believe the delay was due to the designer, rather than to Lovely. But I felt like I needed to stay on top of them, which was stressful right before my wedding. Nonetheless, I would still recommend them very highly.

LOVE Lovely!

Granted, this was my first stop on my wedding dress search (besides a super-fun morning being taught to "dive" into dresses at a chain store), but it was wonderful!

My mom and I showed up after a long day of work for a trunk show - a designer I was interested in brought their samples from Bridal Fashion Week. We didn't have an appointment, but were welcomed in and headed right upstairs (so cute) to browse through a full selection of that designer's dresses.

I only had a vague idea of what I was looking for, and Melanie was a huge help (and a complete sweetheart as well). After trying on a few dresses, talking about my likes and dislikes, and talking about the venue, she brought in a dress that I never would have tried....and of course it turned out to be "the" dress! To top it all off, the designer was there, and I know my mom enjoyed chatting with her. There was absolutely no sales pressure at all (except knowing that since the dress wouldn't be in any stores until the winter, I had to order it that night if I wanted to have it for my May wedding).

In my subsequent visits (yes, we bought the dress), the whole team has been nothing but lovely! Cassandra, in particular, is completely sweet and always a welcoming face. My dress photographed beautifully on my wedding day and was so fun to dance in – a big plus! My guests kept telling me how much they loved it and that they had never seen another dress like it.

Overall, I couldn't be happier with my experience at Lovely. They have created a wonderful environment there -- a special selection of (reasonable) dresses, a great staff, and a super-cute space. I highly recommend it!!

I had a really pleasant experience here, it was the perfect level of service without being overwhelming. Their prices were reasonable (especially compared to Saks Fifth Avenue, where we went earlier in the day!), and they had a ton of gorgeous dresses - I had a hard time narrowing it down from the final 3 candidates.

They also picked out the absolute perfect veil for me on the first try, and had a floral headpiece made for me to exactly match the sash of my dress. It was great to have all that taken care of at once, and I am in love with my dress (still), which was Watters style Austin.

In summary, after a few other attempts to find "the dress", we found it here. The atmosphere was laid-back and friendly, the staff were incredibly helpful and knowledgeable, and the prices were reasonable for the very high quality items they sell. A win for sure.

I flew in from Singapore to NY for 3 days to buy a wedding dress for my Bahamas wedding. This was the first wedding shop I went to in NY. I knew the moment I walked in that I would be able to find something I liked. I loved the 5th dress I tried on and they were able to pull some strings for me so that I was able to bring the dress home with me the same day.
