Don't let their seamstress touch your dress!!! I was very happy to get a dress for such a great price, and I would recommend the shop as a good place to get an inexpensive dress, but I do not recommend getting alterations done there. I accept some responsibility for my poor experience. I had called to see when my second fitting was. I was told that it was done and I could pick it up whenever. I was surprised that I didn't need to have a second fitting and expressed my surprise. I was told, no- it's ready and you can pick it up whenever we are open. I had a lot going on at the time, and wasn't able to pick it up until a week and a half before the wedding. I was in a hurry when I tried it on before leaving the store. My fault. I did not realize the shop considered this my "second fitting." The next day I tried the dress on with my jewelry and noticed some things I can't believe I missed before. There was a 3 inch difference between the right and left side of the dress. The zipper was bubbled in the back so it looked like I had 4 golf-ball sized bumps on my butt, and one strap was longer than the other, so it kept falling off. I couldn't believe it. I could have had my fiance do a better job and we don't even have a sewing machine. With not much time, I couldn't risk letting her fix it. It was a Sunday, so I started calling around frantically. Even though they were closed, Magic Cleaners in Bowleys Quarters opened up so she could start fixing the dress. Unfortunately Poor Little Rich Girl's seamstress cut the inside layer of the dress too much which is why it bubbled. My new seamstress is still working on it and isn't sure if she can completely fix the bubbles in the back. I will have to live with the inside layer being 3 inches shorter than the outside sheer layer, but as long as it is straight I think it will look fine. I called the shop to let them know how dissatisfied I was with the alterations. I readily admitted that I hold some of the responsibility, but I wanted them to be aware of the quality of work from their seamstress. The response I got was VERY defensive. Linda told me that she has been working with this seamstress for over 20 years and was almost yelling at me for calling. I am no bride-zilla, but these alterations were so bad that there is no excuse. I did not give their seamstress an opportunity to fix the dress, but with how bad it was, would you?

Poor little rich girl is amazing! They are so nice, they had exactly what I was looking for. The dress I chose was discontinued and they gave me the sample at a discount! I am really short and it was a lace dress with a scalloped edge and I was worried it couldn't be hemmed, but they did it! Great service! Love them!!!! Very affordable and so so nice!!!!

There were a few pros and cons in my dealings with Poor Little Rich Girl. I will say that overall, my experience was positive, but I feel that I should put in a few things that I heard from my wedding party to be cautious about.
The first thing I did was pick my dress from PLRG and I LOVED it!! They really do have a great selection of dresses and their prices are very reasonable. I was so happy with my first few visits and I decided to pick out the bridesmaid dresses there and also have the guys rent their tuxes from there too. If you get your dress there you will get a discount on bridesmaid gowns. My first word to the wise: As long as you are polite and friendly, Linda and Michelle are fabulous and easy to get along with. But they definitely aren't afraid to give attitude back if you give it.
Everything went smoothly until the dresses started arriving. The dresses arrived on time which was great. However, the biggest problem was that the seamstress didn't always have the dresses done when she said they would be and sometimes my bridesmaids would go in only to find out their dresses weren't done yet. My dress wasn't done until about 4 days before the wedding which freaked me out a little. My best advice is to get your alternations done early if you are going with their seamstress. But I wouldn't really recommend their seamstress as she seemed to take forever and some dresses had to go back several times to fix things.
Another piece of advice is to try to make sure you get the dates of things in writing, such as when things are coming in and when they should be done. Sometimes they do get confused which is a little bit of a hassle. There are only two ladies running the shop, which can get very busy, so it is easy for things to get lost in the shuffle. There was also some confusion about when the guys would be able to pick up their tuxes.
Overall I really loved PLRG and would definitely recommend them to any low key, low maintenance brides. Most of my complaints came from my bridesmaids and not from me. Just make sure to get things done early to ensure that they get done in time! Oh, and there is a cute little dog that runs around the shop, so if you love dogs that is a bonus!

I was very pleased with how everything turned out for my wedding. She was always very accommodating when I needed to come in for fittings or to look for tuxes for the men. They had very reasonable prices and she provided an honest opinion when asked. I would recommend them to somebody who is looking for attention to details and good deals.

At first I was very pleased with the service...but as soon as they got their money for the tuxes and bridesmaids dresses, service went downhill. The lady was rude and downright nasty at times. Were made promises on alterations that turned out to be a disaster--the day of the wedding, we could still see some of the bra straps on the girls. I was very disappointed.

There was a lot of miscommunication within the store. A lot of misinformation was given to the customer. We asked specific questions and were given answers, only to find out later on down the road that those answers were incorrect and it was too late to do anything about it. Service was sometimes curt and abrupt. There were some sizing issues and my wedding dress was not altered when it was supposed to be and we cut it really close at the end. Luckily, everything pulled together in the end. You may find what you want, but there may be some issues.
