I was pleasantly surprised when I walked into this boutique. They have beautiful dresses,awesome ambiance, great service, and reasonable prices. I absolutely loved working with Marta. She made me feel very comfortable from the moment she introduced herself and also recommended what would become MY DRESS! I tried on numerous gowns there and once she saw what I liked, she had her recommendation which I really appreciated. Since this was my first stop of many that day in Miracle Mile for bridal dresses, I went to other bridal stores and came back at the end of the day to purchase MY DRESS. The dress took 6 months to arrive and it fit like a glove. All I need now is alterations to hem. So happy to have found my dress here!

Merlili was the best wedding dress experience I had throughout my wedding dress shopping experience. From the minute you come in, it is welcoming with no stress unlike the other bridal shops in Miracle Mile. Marta immediately assisted me in picking and trying on dresses without making me feel rushed. I had to come in three times for alterations but the dress fit perfect on my wedding day! I could not have asked for a better experience. I also had the opportunity of running into the owner quite a few times and she was always so sweet. Overall, Marta is so patient and gave me that genuine warmth feeling every bride deserves to have when shopping for the most important day of her life.

Merlili is the most beautiful bridal boutique on Miracle Mile. The store layout is very open and airy; I could have spent all day there.

Marta was the saleswoman who helped me and I LOVED working with her. She was truly a dream to work with, from beginning to end. Her warmth and ability to make you feel like you are the most important person in the world are what make Merlili so special. Marta listened to what I wanted and she nailed it when I found the dress of my dreams there. Thank you, Marta! You truly made shopping for a wedding dress a wonderful experience.

I would have given Merlili 5 stars, if not for the alterations experience. The week of my wedding, the alterations on my dress were still not complete. I had to come in a couple more times before finally picking up my dress, 1 day before the wedding. It was very stressful, but in the end, the dress did fit perfectly and I was very happy with how I looked in it.

Lilly, the owner, is darling and her feedback during my alterations was very much appreciated. When my maid of honor could not be there for one of the last fittings, Lilly stepped in and absolutely made me feel like she was on my team. It was comforting to know that she too wanted me to look the absolute best on my wedding day.

Thank you, Merlili!

I had gone shopping all around miracle mile and other stores in the area for wedding dresses and finally arrived at Merlili. I was so happy when I walked in and the staff there made me feel so comfortable and at home. I knew the style of dress I wanted and the store found the exact dress for me. They also even let me modify the top. The dress turned out so perfectly and beautiful! I could not imagine it any other way. I received so many compliments on the dress and the accessories I got at Merlili, which were my veil and belt. They were all so beautiful. I had a great experience with my dress at Merlili. They were all so great.

Merlili was a blessing. After a long day of shopping for my dress, I stopped into Merlili and I did not think I would be successful, because I wasn't successful with the previous stores. However, Martha one of the bridal associates who is very sweet by the way told me to try on one more dress. Boy I am sooo happy I did. It was beautiful it was exactly what I was looking for in my dress. The process for ordeingr and paying was a smooth one and they even offered a discount which was great!!! Martha was the best bridal associate, very calm, sweet and professional. She made me feel like a princess and called me that everytime..hehe. Alll in all I had a great experience there and I strongly recommend them to anyone.

so if i could give merlili more than 5 stars i would!!!! amazing service from the moment i walked in.

i dealt with lily the owner and she was an absolute sweetheart. she was very attentive and focused on trying on the dresses. and she even helped me squeeze into a dress that was 2 sizes too small "bc you never know" and it was THE DRESS i fell in love with.
if it wasnt for her knowledge and expertise i may have overlooked that dress. the prices are also really affordable but the fabrics and styles are very fashionable and don't look cheap.
she also carries a great variety of accessories and bridesmaids dresses. bari jay is my favorite line and she has them.

my dress arrived really really fast (4 months before my wedding), i immediately went to try it on but didnt go back for 2 more months to start alterations. josefina the lady who does alterations is amazing. she comes across a little tough/cold at first but by my final fitting she was a sweetheart! marta the lady that you deal with up front is nothing short of a class act. so attentive and personable. and lilly of course is a sweetheart always gives her honest opinion while making you feel like a million bucks.

we took in my dress quite a bit then had to take it out a bit so i could sit comfortably. the dress was originally strapless, but i added a whole top piece to cover the back and add a gorgeous neckline. then i had a cap sleeve set made so i could change the look of my dress after the church ceremony.
they were super accomodating to my every request!!

oh and my bridesmaids were all super happy with their dresses that we ordered there as well!!

they have great prices and prompt reliable and responsible service.

I think this shop deserves an award for dealing with me. It's a very small dress shop on the mile that not many people know of. I found them on a whim when walking by and am so glad I did. Whenever I walked into the other stores I didn't feel comfortable and felt pressured to buy something. This dress shop was different and they always made me feel like family. I would call and always knew who I was talking to and they knew who I was. The first day I went in and tried on dresses I went with my mom, aunt, and my niece. They were picking things I did not like and I was getting so confused and frustrated about everything. Lili, one of the owners, picked up on this and actually kicked my mom and aunt out of the dressing room and had a heart to heart with me alone, it was then that she told me she had the perfect dress for me. When I put it on I lost it crying, it was perfect! I walked out and everyone started crying also. I owe my dream dress to her and can say nothing negative about a shop which always made me feel like family. My bridesmaids also got their dresses here and there was never an issue there either. I also want to add that the dress I bought was $300 more at a shop a few doors down! Talk about it being fate that I found Merlili... I love love love all the girls here!

I'm still kind of indifferent about the service I received EVERY time I went into the store. I have to say that my dress was one of a kind and I would not have found ti anywhere else...but with that said, it was a headache everytime I went in. For start, they are a small store with a great selection, but no coputer, no register, it's all paper and pen! That can get a bit tricky once people start scratching out on copies. There were tons of discrepancies and "he said, she saids." Overall, the women tried to help me but their boss was never in and could never be reached...which left us all very stressed and unsure.
Great dresses...poor service...I can't really sum it up any other way.

I got a Kitty Chen Couture dress (they are the only authorized retailer of Kitty Chen in Miami) and although I went in roughly 5 months before my wedding, they got my dress to me in time complete with alterations. They even stayed open late one night so I could go for my fitting. Prompt, polite and so genuinely caring and excited for me. It was beyond my expectations.

We loved them so much my bridal party purchased their dresses from there as well.

I loved them and still adore my gown!!! :) I will definitely go back for any other formal event I have!

I was having a really tough day shopping for my dress. I didn't fit anything properly and people were trying to sell me something that I didn't really like. All this was going on when I went to Merlili and they made me feel fantastic!!! I was able to see lots of dresses and the girls calmed me down and helped me find what I wanted. I thought that the dress I wanted was going to be really expensive but it was very reasonable. The alterations department was able to change the dress that I picked out exactly the way I wanted and in a day! They were awesome :)

I also got my headpiece there and absolutely loved it!

I wish I could give the a 5.0, because my dress was beautiful. There was just a big mix up with my fittings which ended up leaving my first and only fitting 4 days before the wedding, but it all turned out well, the dress fit great and bustled perfectly. So in the end, after a moderate amount of stress, things turned out good.

Martha is one of the sweetest salespersons I had the pleasure of meeting. As you will see, not everyone is like this.

Martha and Lili make you feel very much at home. The store is quaint but be patient, you will be able to find the dress of your dreams. They listen and try to accomodate more than many other vendors do.

The dress I bought arrived on time, although the alterations weren't done on time, due to circumstances out of their control, they made sure I had my dress on time. Overall it was a pleasure working with them and I would recommend Merlili to anyone. Thank you!

The ring my husband got for me was from Merlili, and it was a complete surprise. I didn't know he ordered it, but he told me afterwards. From the ring itself, I would have to say that it is a very beautiful and classy ring, looks very high quality.

Merlili is a one of a kind bridal store, from the moment you walk in you are being helped and attended too. Lily and Martha attended to all my needs and requests.

Buying my wedding dress and my bridesmaid dresses from Merlili was the easiest choice I made in my wedding planning. I highly recommend Merlili, it is a top notch store.

I loved loved loved my dress! The best part was when I walked in the people that worked there said they had the perfect dress for me in the back before I even tried any on. I was skeptical about trying it on (it wasn't what I was looking for), but I tried it on and it was the PERFECT DRESS. I felt like an absolute princess. The only issue I had was that the dress was WAY TO BIG when I finally got it. They must have messed up with my measurements (which cost me a lot in alterations).

I found my gorgeous gown at this great shop. It was the last shop that I went to on my first big day of dress hunting. Merlili's pleasant staff was a nice change after leaving the store next door where the obnoxious owner was very rude. I loved my dress! My workouts meant that I lost a lot of inches between my purchase and my wedding day, but their seamstress is amazing. The dress fit perfectly. When I was shoe shopping, I needed a swatch to match the right color, and one of the owner’s, Marie, mailed one to me right away. Note: I had a one-point french bustle. I hear that bustle buttons pop off a lot at receptions, mine did. My recommendation would be to ask for more than one button to be sewn on, even if it's a one-point bustle. (I'm not even sure if that exists, but maybe it's possible).

Sales person (i think it was Marta) pretty much hit the nail on the head, found the perfect gown for me and matched it with a beautiful veil! so far 2 of my girlfriends have borrowed my veil for their wedding. The only problem i had was their restroom was always "out of service" and we would have to walk over to another store. The seamstress was only available on weekdays so i had to use my sick days to get my dress fitted. AND my mom pretty much had to tell the seamstress what to do cause she seemed to not know to fit the dress, but she did manage to do the job right.

The owner, Lili, is super, super nice! The seamstress is lazy and would not fix my dress until Lili came in and told her what to do. I had to go in several times to have my dress fitted to where I felt comfortable in it and even the night of my wedding, one of the straps broke because the seamstress did not reinforce it the way I had asked her to. Lili needs to fire her because otherwise, her business is amazing! She has the best prices I found on Miracle Mile and she makes everything ok if there is a problem. I bought my rehearsal dinner dress and shoes, as well as my tiara and veil from her because she is so wonderful and the products she has are great. She has good taste and helped me put together my entire look with my veil and tiara to match my dress. Please don't disregard her store based on my reviews of her seamstress, get your dress from her and take it somewhere to be altered. Lili is wonderful! Her seamstress sucks.

When I first visited Merlili, the ladies was very nice and very helpful. I found what I was looking for in a matter of minutes. They were very patient as well. Everything was perfect up until my second fitting. The dress was too big and the seamstress seemed very stressed and flustered about the whole thing and did not make me feel at ease as she kept telling me that she didn't know if she would be able to haev the dress ready for the wedding. Fortunately it was but I had to end up paying like an extra $400 for alterations which I did not believe to be my fault. I was very happy with the end result though as the dress, veil, shoes, and the jewlery was beautiful.

My experience with Merlili was very mixed. This is the only negative review I am writing of my vendors- and it pains me to do it. But The reason for the low review is simple. Their alterations seamstress is horrible.

Initially I had a great experience with Merlili- the salesperson Marta was wonderful! She helped me, treated me and my mother like gold, and even picked out the dress I ultimately ended up buying! I love Marta to death.

However- after the sales process- the alterations process took over and it was awful.
The seamstress was cold, and downright rude at times.
First of all she only speaks spanish, and when I struggled to communicate with her in spanish she spoke to me with attitude. Not exactly thrilling during a bride's special time.

My first fitting went ok. But I told her to take in the bust more when she was pinning it because I am very petite and it was a strapless dress. She claimed she pinned it correctly.

The second fitting showed she had done anything but measure me correctly. The top of the gown stuck out off my chest like a shelf. Not only that but there were issues in the back with the slip riding up, and she didn't even do the bustle!
When I pointed out that more alterations were clearly needed she accused me of losing weight (which I didn't and I would have had to have lost 3 inches from each armpit for that to have been the cause..)
and she said she would charge me EXTRA for the additional alterations! Even though it was her mistake. Marta assured me they wouldn't but the damage was done- I had serious concerns about my dress.

My wedding was April 10- the seamstress refused to promise to have the dress done until April 1! That was more than a month after the second fitting! I repeatedly asked it to be done sooner and was told just to stop worrying, it would all be fine.

Well, it was partially fine. When I went in for the third fitting- the bust was fixed (though there was some puckering on the chest area.)

The slip problem had mostly been corrected. But the bustle was completely different than the one I wanted, and she had never bothered to call me to tell me she was changing it!

With so little time before the wedding, I just took the dress as is- afraid she would mess it up more.

Had Marta been in charge of the alterations- this review would have been a 5.

Thankfully I ended up in Merlili. Everyone was so wonderful, kind, and professional there and I found a dress and veil that were PERFECT! It was a little bit of a drive for me, coming from Jupiter, but it was totally worth it! I would recommend this shop to every bride!

I really enjoyed shopping for my wedding dress at Merlili's Bridal. They allowed me to take pictures of the dresses, gave me the designers names and were very patient. Other nearby stores on Miracle Mile refused pictures and would not give me the designers name (which made it very difficult to make a decision, I felt very rushed and found out that the same dress at Merlili's was $200 less). Merlili's was very responsive when returning phone calls, etc. but I wish they had better hours and were open for Sunday fittings. I highly recommend them!

After strolling up and down Miracle Mile we finally found this great store. Most stores in Miracle Mile and Fort Lauderdale carry basically the same dresses with little variation, but Merlili definitely has an authentic collection, unique, elegant and with comfortable prices. I loved my gown! Just what I was looking for, just perfect. The staff was incredible right from the beginning! During my first fitting I hadn't had a change to grab a snack or anything and I nearly fainted, one of the salesgirls, Patricia, immediately brought me some cookies and rushed outside in the rain to bring me a coke. Definitely an experience! The seamstress did a great job as well. Great service, great collection and even relaxing!
