I think this store was so charming and personal. All the other bridal salons I went to were huge and no one cared about the bride. When I walked into Jobynas the sales girl was so nice to me. She really took the time to ask me about my wedding, what I wanted to look like and what my dream dress was going to be. She was creative and tried to help me make the gown personal and custom to me and my needs. I was very impressed by her happy energy and willingness to assist me in any way. I bought the dress after my third visit. The girl was so nice, never pushy and always polite. I felt relaxed and at ease. I ended up purchasing the bridesmaids gowns and renting the tuxedos from them also!!! I just want to say thank you to all of them for making this day so special for me.
Thank you for the great service! Not only did I find what I was looking for but the friendliness of the staff transformed my search for a dress into a fantastic and fun experience!
I love Lovella. They are so professional. They make you feel like they genuinely care and they are so knowledgeable.
The entire Lovella Team is professional, attentive, and hands down amazing!
Nayri is a AMAZING saleswoman! She had the perfect balance of professionalism and friendliness and had nothing but expert stylistic advice to offer. She is genuine, responsive and a great multi-tasker. I could not have asked for a better stylist. Also, Lovella's selection of dresses was unique and competitively priced.
Christina is wonderful! She went above and beyond the call of duty to help me find my wedding dress -- and in a time crunch! She is extremely helpful and I would certainly recommend her to any other bride I know!
Nayri took such good care of me!! She was very helpful and did not mind all of my constant questions and emails. She made me feel very comfortable throughout the process and was always very responsive and attentive. Their seamstress Rosie is a miracle worker!! She will transform your dress into exactly what you want. I would definitely recommend Lovella to anyone looking for a beautiful dress and expert customer service.
I enjoyed every step during my planning process with Lovella Bridal... from buying my dress to alterations to picking up my dress. They made the process so wonderful for me that when my dress was ready I was almost sad to not have a reason to come back to the salon and see them again. They are extremely patient and helpful. They have the most gorgeous, hand picked gowns in their salon with every beautiful sash and veil to match. Their team is also very talented and they know exactly how to complete your dream wedding look. My dress was made my Edgardo Bonilla and it was absolutely stunning. He puts such care into his gowns it's amazing! I received many compliments on my wedding day! Thank you Lovella Bridal and Edgardo Bonilla!
I had a similar experience as amorechapel. I stopped by the store on a Sunday and not knowing the store hours, I knocked on the front door because a sales lady was there. She peeked out and told me that I had to call to talk to someone. I called the store the following day, they asked for my budget and I told them what it was. The lady said that they only carry dresses $2,000 and above. They didn't even offer to work with my budget or help me.
I purchased my wedding gown, veil, headpiece, and earrings from Lovella for my wedding last month. The ladies that work there are so sweet and easy to work with. They aren't pushy about sales at all. I fell in love with four gowns when I went there for the first time because they had such a great selection in the store. I ended up choosing what I believe to be the most beautiful gown in the world, "Angelic" by Kenneth Pool. We had to do a number of different alterations - we tightened the body, added some fabric to the bust line, hemmed the bottom, and took out some of the "poof." All of the alterations were absolutely perfect - the dress fit like a glove! If you are looking for a high-end, designer gown and fantastic service, go to Lovella Bridal! -Lisa Leyda Petersen (email@example.com)
I love Lovella Bridal. The staff was so helpful and attentive. I found MY dress within 10 minutes and they were so supportive. The fitting and alteration process was very easy and it was altered perfectly. My dress was gorgeous! Thank you Lovella!
The service at this store was great. All the ladies there are so nice. I bought a sample dress and it was in great condition. I did all my alterations with them. I had a marmaid style dress so it was a little hard to fit through the hips. Lovella's stem-stress made sure it was prefect and comfortable for me. The dress looked great and I was able to dance all night. They let you store your dress there and they steamed the dress and my veil for me for free. I would definitely recommend this store for all future brides.
I had the most wonderful experience at Lovella Bridal. I went there with my mom and we loved the selection of dresses as well as the amazing customer service. Everyone was extremely friendly and offered us all the help we needed. As a non-sample size bride, I was nervous about buying a dress without trying it on, but they assured me it would fit perfectly. Rosie was an amazing seamstress and fitted my dress to me perfectly. I also had a custom-made veil which was absolutely beautiful as well as a lovely headpiece which was gorgeous. Everything I have to say about Lovella is positive! Would definitely take my daughter there someday and refer it to all my friends!
Lovella helped me find my dream wedding dress. They listened to what I had to say about styles, yet put enough input in to make sure that I bought not only what I thought was beautiful, but what made me look and feel like a bride. I have only great things to say. They responded to all my requests promptly and reminded me of all my appointments.
Searched high and low for my wedding dress and finally found it here at their Americana store (a designer Ines di Santo dress). It was my dream dress come true! Finally a bling dress without the gaudiness. Gorgeous. And perfect fitting by their tailor.
We were lucky to go on a day when Jobyn's happened to be holding an Alvina Valenta trunck show. Getting to meet the designer and have her help with a few ideas was really amazing!
The ladies at the store were very knowledgable and rather helpful in most aspects, but like many sales girls, could be a little pushy when it came to some things.
Still, I think their vision, though different than mine, was beautiful. I ended up feeling absolutely amazing on my wedding day, and after all, thats all any bride really wants!
Absolutely made THE BEST MAID-OF-HONOR dress I had ever seen in my life. She was a life savor!
I bought a Pronovias detailed lace gown at a Jobyna's off the rack sample sale. The style wasn't exactly what I was looking for, but I fell in love with the fabric and detailing. I was skeptical about bringing the dress back for alterations because I had read REALLY bad reviews about the place being extremely overpriced. I decided to play it safe and go back to the store that I bought it from. The seamstress was really straightforward and slightly pushy, but she did a wonderful job on altering the dress. I had considerable work done to the dress (cutting the top to a sweetheart, taking it in, boning along the torso, hemming, bustling, and adding an off the shoulder lace piece) which I paid a very pretty penny for, pretty much what I paid for the dress. Probably could have gotten it done cheaper elsewhere, but the seamstress really knew what she was doing and did a fabulous job in making the dress very flattering.
I purchased my gown here and have mixed feelings about the experience. Overall, the process was smooth and I didn't experience any major issues. The pros: the dress arrived on-time, the alterations were very good and were completed as scheduled. The cons: the sales lady put a lot of pressure on me to buy the gown and I felt the alterations were way overpriced.
Jobyna's put up with me changing my mind 50 times. In the end I got exactly what I wanted and I was totally happy. I think they are very patient and kind.
I went to this bridal shop after finding dresses I liked on The Knot, which directed me to this vendor as a seller for these particular dresses. When I called to make an appointment, I was specific about my price range, and the website even advertised a huge "blow out" sale. But when I arrived at the store I was told they didn't have anything under $2000, and $1000 was my budget. They told me to try things on anyway, maybe we could work out something with a sample. I showed them pictures of what I was interested in, and described what I didn't want. They kept bringing me what I didn't want, just trying to get a sale. Then one salesgirl says she can think of 5 dresses I would love that they have at their other location, which sells samples at discounted prices so I set up an appointment for later in the week. After driving an hour and a half to get there, I am told they don't have what I want, sorry to waste my time. This place is awful, the selection is limited, and service is horrible.
I bought my bridal gown from there a few months ago. I had a great experience, the sales girls were nice and I got a good deal. They did tell me that the alterations are a little bit pricy but it was sooooo worth it. The seamstress made the gown fit me like it was made for me!!!! I have nothing but good things to say about them. Go in on a sample sale day or a trunk show day you get a better discount....
I attended a bridal trunk show. Even with the trunk, I agree that the store can be restricting [5 racks I think?]. The sales woman was helpful, a very involved shop owner. She had great advice to offer, however I do agree with the pushy comments. The payment of 60% upfront with 10% then $75 for the alterations appointment were too much for me to take in the end, and I wasn't sure of the dress.
Also, I was offered the 10% trunk show discount AFTER the younger woman offered 12% off then apologized for overstatement. I attended the trunk show and both the stylist for the company and shop owner wouldn't let me try on others that I came to view after I found two that I liked. They just kept saying "You won't like it.." Unfortunately, I like a wide range of dresses and am the type of person that has to try it to get it out of my mind and like making that decision for myself.
Jobyna's... I decided to make an appointment at the store since it was "the knot's pick". The dresses there are "couture" and they're all very beautiful but a little pricey for me. The cheapest dress i tried on was a little less than $2k..My experience there was very disappointing...The consultant kept on pushing me dresses that were over my budget (like $3-4k!). When i would talk to my mom in japanese she'll butt in and keep on asking me what i/my mom said and ask to translate- uhh, how annoying! She wouldn't even help me into the dresses I was trying on! She'll just pass me a dress and say "here, try this on".. really?? When leaving, i asked her to write down the style # of dresses that i liked but she replied to me "why? what do you need them for?", she just wrote the description & prices. *rolling eyes* Oh yah, and no pictures are allowed- Maybe the girl was just having a bad day and wanted to go home already (i came in late but i left 1 minute before closing!) But it will be highly unlikely that I will buy my dress from Jobyna's.
I had a wonderful experience at Jobyna's bridal. They were very helpful and educated me a lot on gowns and bridesmaids. I bought my dress, bridesmaids, shoes, tiara, earrings, tux and had my alterations done by them as well. I went to over 12 stores and Jobyna's had the best services and prices. They have many wonderful gowns that are priced at 5K-6K but guess what YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR. The dress I bought cost $1,700 and everyone that has seen it absolutely loves it. I am as happy as can be and I hope everyone can at least experience the quality of Jobyna's service. They do ask for your budget because they want to help you stay within that budget they understand the concept of saving money and they sales associate had my best interest at heart. They were wonderful and helped me find the gown of my dreams.
I had seen that this shop was a "knot pick", and even though I found my same dress at another shop in Pasadena where it was $50.00 cheaper, I decided to buy from a small business owner. Boy was that a mistake! The staff was rude, and misquoted just about every possible price they gave me. Upon ordering my dress, I was told to just put a deposit down, and that I could pay my balance when the dress came in which would be about 3 months later. When the dress arrived at the shop, I was notified that I could come pick it up and pay the balance. I literally sent in the FULL balance of the dress with a check THAT same day. A few weeks later, both my mom and I started receiving HORRIBLE messages from the shop saying that I was violating my contract with them because they have not received payment, and that they are going to use my credit card that I purchased jewelry from the store earlier with. After receiving a few of these messages, I confirmed with the bank that they had cashed my check three days after I had sent it in. I dreaded each of my alteration visits... I cannot tell you the amount of time the lady literally STUCK me in the back with the pins drawing blood, or even better, during my last fitting, just 2 days before my wedding, I noticed that the cups that they sewed into my dress were showing from the side profile. They were completely annoyed when my soon to be mother in law asked them to fix it. Then after paying $250 more than I was quoted for the alterations, I had assumed that I did not need to worry about anything else in regards to the way the dress fit. WRONG AGAIN. The front of the dress was altered so horribly that I was tripping on my dress as I was walking around the DAY of my wedding. About 5 minutes before my walk down the aisle, my bridesmaids started fixing my dress with safety pins and double sided tape!!!! It gets better... After the ceremony, my bustle did not work the way they told me, and half of my dress was left down for my to slip on the entire night. The wedding coordinator had NEVER seen such SLOPPY work before! That says A LOT! I later called the shop to give them a chance to make it right, but they told me that "this has never happened before", like that is suppose to make me feel better? The owner went on to say that she would need me to bring the dress in for her to inspect, but that I could only come during the day Monday through Friday... She truly expected me to take MORE time out of my work schedule for HER mistake. She also blamed me for not telling the alterations lady that the dress was too long. I am not a professional bride.. I did not know that I should walk around the store. THEY had me stand on a little box and she measured from there. She is the professional, and should have known how to check to make sure a dress fits properly before sending it out. To say the least, I never went back. The thought of having to see and deal with the staff at the shop was not worth any credit. I WOULD NOT recommend this shop to ANYONE! You do not want the headache!!!
Showed up on time for my appointment and was ignored by the two sales girls for about 15 minutes. When taken in for consultation, the sales girl was very helpful, brought out many styles that worked with my body and provided honest feedback. I went in to look at a specific style but she helped me keep an open mind about other dresses. They do carry higher end designers with big price tags- I was looking for a Lazaro gown, so yes, the dresses are expensive.
When I felt like I found "the one" the sales girl was ready to close the deal- I didn't like feeling rushed in to making that very important decision. I like to think about it (but I know, she's trying to make a sale). I told them I wanted the dress but had to think about it. Since I didn't live in the area, they filled out a sales slip and sized me for the dress. The girl measured me for the dress and according to the size chart I was a 10, but the sample dress was a 10 and was HUGE on me. The salesgirl measured me 3 times and looked at the dress 3 times to confirm. The owner came over and said "the dress is streatched order the 10". I was not confortable ordering the bigger size since it clearly (even if a bit streatched) would have been too big for me). So they made me sign off that I wanted the size 8. She said she would call me, but I didn't get a call from her for over a month! Guess she didn't want the sale that badly. I ended up finding the gown on ebay for much less.
Over all the shop carries high end designers and the service was good though they seemed a bit disorganized. I ended up getting my dress elsewhere but if I was going to pay full price I would consider buying from them.
Jobynas was highly recommended by friends and lived up to it. I know if they were to make a mistake like of course all humans do they would fix it. the one thing all these blogs i have read say is about the alteration price. jobynas explained to me that the prices in alterations vary and it depends on the amount of work and the gown there are no set prices for alterations. If brides just understood this there would be no mix up at all. If a store offers you FREE alterations or include it in the price you should RUN RUN and not look back. YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR. and for the record jobynas had the gown i bought for the lowest price out of any other bridal salon. If you want service and quality this is the place. Good luck!!
The ladies who work at Jobyna's were so patient and enthusiastic when I went in to try on dresses. Their seamstress was great, although I found the simple work she did on my dress to be far overpriced. In retrospect, I would definitely buy my dress from Jobyna's again, but would have it altered elsewhere.
I went to Jobyna's for a pre-sample sale. I have to admit that the salespeople were really friendly, but also pretty pushy. My budget was $1500, but they tried to convince that I had to have a $4000 gown. Once I made it clear that I didn't like that dress, they were still pretty pushy with getting me to buy another gown. Overall, I didn't think they had a very big selection and I wasn't very comfortable there.
Everyone at this salon was friendly and helpful. I found everything I needed, and the prices were great. Their alterations lady was top notch!
My dress fit like a glove and everyone was so supportive and helpful. I also ordered my bridesmaid dresses here and they came in on time.
I had a horrible experience at Jobyna's! I went there during a trunk show and fell in love with my dress. The saleslady offered my a %10 discount if I bought it then and said alterations would probably be around $200. I immediately took the deal because it sounded too good to be true.... unfortunately it was. I paid for the dress when it came in and asked about alterations. This time she quoted me $400 which shocked me. I think she saw that I was hesitant and told me that I should go through with the appointment and if I didn't like what I heard then I could take it somewhere else. I did and upon the alteration appointment, the price increased to $420. When I said I was going to take me dress elsewhere she said she'd charge me a $75 holding fee on my dress since I had the appointment! Needless to say I did not pay their holding fee and took my dress somewhere else where we discovered that the seamstress, who had been putting the pins in her mouth, and gotten thin pink lines of lipstick all over my dress! To make matters worse, the tulle of the dress smelled like fish and when I brought it up, they completely ignored me and refused to admit it. Run away from Jobyna's! They're awful!
I walked into Jobyna's and the absolute first thing the rep said to me was "what is your budget." When I told her I was unsure, she told me to try going to a discount bridal house. In addition, my MOH had originally ordered her wedding dress from Jobyna's and had a horrible time once they took her money. She ended up finally taking her dress, unaltered, from Jobyna's and going to Yelena Bridal in Monrovia to do the alterations.
Incredibly professional. The seamstress is very good. My dress was Ravini and it was couture, incredibly beautiful and one of a kind. Yes, it was expensive, but the photos are amazing. I do not spend money on designer clothes, etc., but for my wedding, it had to be a special dress, simple, yet elegant and modern/traditional. Ravini's dress was just that. Jobyna's handled the entire process smoothly. First rate service.
Amazing dress collections, and amazing service. These ladies will find you YOUR PERFECT dress!
