When I called Bridals by Lori and told them my budget, they were nice but sweetly told me that the gowns on the regular floor started at the top of my price range and that they would likely have trouble finding anything for me. I thought that would be that but then the salesperson told me about the "outlet" section of the store where they have "as is" sample sale dresses from previous seasons that are significantly marked down. I figured why not check it out and made the appointment. Went to the appointment with my family in tow (mom, sis/MOH, future mother-in-law, and grandma). When we showed up, we were met by the consultant Michele, who was bubbly, sweet, and fun right from the start. Since this was my first bridal gown experience, I had some ideas in mind but wasn't sure where to start. She took me to a small room where there were a few racks of sample sale dresses and we started picking some out. Michele was awesome and super patient as I modeled different dresses for my family, finally narrowing it down to 2. That was when she really stepped it up, putting my hair up and picking out different veils for me to try, getting different jewelry and shoes to match, and trying different hair pieces. She didn't complain when I went way over the appointment time as my family and I debated between and retried the top 2 dresses and took millions of pictures (and shed a few tears). In the end, even though I hadn't planned on buying anything that day, the 3rd dress I tried on was definitely "the one" and I bought it on the spot. Michele truly made our experience awesome from start to finish and I'd recommend her (and the outlet section) to any bride without a super high budget. My dress ended up being ~$1K and they even threw in a free pair of dress shoes because I bought it on the same day. Dress and shoes, check! Overall, loved Bridals by Lori and would recommend it to anyone.

I absolutely loved my time at Bridals by Lori. They were patient with me when I had to change my appointment date and were easy to get in touch with. I went on a trunk show day so they were busy and I had to wait about 10 minutes before my consultant was ready, but the receptionist showed us the closets and let us start looking for dresses while we waited, so I didn't feel they wasted our time. My consultant was extremely respectful of my budget (~$1000) and encouraged me to try a variety of dresses since I didn't know what I wanted. Lori even stopped by to tell me how much she liked my dress and was very kind. They had a very wide selection, even at my price range (they have a sale rack!). My consultant even called me a few weeks later to let me know about a trunk show for the vendor of an accessory I had looked at in the store. I never felt rushed or pressured and really enjoyed the whole experience. I will absolutely take each of my sisters there when they get engaged.
I was in need of a formal dress for a family wedding and I was 7 months pregnant. Needless to say, I was over the moon to find Mandi at Bella Bridesmaids! As soon as I walked in, she and the other women working there were so attentive (offering me water and a seat) while Mandi pulled several maternity dresses for me to try on. I absolutely loved every dress and felt really excited to actually go to a wedding very pregnant!!! Mandi had amazing suggestions with each dress and showed me all of the color choices to pick from. I received the dress in a timely manner and Mandi recommend a great alterations shop not far from the store. If it weren't for Mandi and her eye for detail, I don't think I would have felt as confident and pretty at a wedding being very pregnant!!
All I can say is wow. Going to Bridals by Lori was the most amazing experience. It was well worth the weekend trip! I will never forget the amazing experience I had there. In one day I got my wedding gown, bridesmadis dresses, and my mom got her dress. It was a truly wonderful experience. I got "jacked up" by Monte which was awesome! The dress I was in love with in a picture just wasnt right on. Monte went and pulled a very similar dress and made some minor adjustments and then it was just magically perfect! I bought a Lazaro gown. Lazaro was there. I got to meet him and he hand drew me a sketch of my dress right there infront of me to keep. If you looking for a beautiful dress and a one of a kind experience, Bridals by Lori is the place to go.
I shopped at several stores throughout the ATL area and ended up buying my dress from Bride Beautiful. I wish I had started there, so I would not have wasted weeks of my time at other stores that were either rude, dirty, or just did not have a good selection. The place can be a little crowded on weekends, but the sales people are really helpful and fun. I ended up making an appointment to come back in with my bridesmaids and we picked out their dress in about an hour. They have a lot of dresses to choose from and the prices were lower than what I expected. I def recommend this store and would suggest making an appointment. They say that they are not required, but I would make one anyway just to be safe.
I cannot say enough good things about Bridals by Lori. My girlfriend and I are planning a commitment ceremony for April and did our dress shopping together. We worked with Haylee and she was phenomenal. We wanted to make sure our dresses looked great together but fit each of our personal style. We got feedback from Robyn and Lori which was super exciting. We did our first visit as a preliminary shop to see what styles we liked and could afford. We went to a few other stores but nothing beat the atmosphere and service provided by Haylee and all the staff. Ultimately we both purchased our dresses from Bridals by Lori. Both were in budget ($2500). We had the best time and. Can't wait to start our fittings!
As a plus sized bride, I was very anxious about trying on dresses. However, I went in and was greeted with a smile. I was given the same amount respect and help as a plus sized bride that a bride who was a size 2 would get. They had lots of dresses to try on, and I was able to try them all on and be comfortable while doing so. The insight was very helpful, and even when I decided to leave and come back to try some things on, there was no pressure to purchase that day. I did end up saying "yes to the dress"! I would definitely recommend this shop to anyone of any size seeking bridal, formal, or any other type of dressy attire. Thanks for such a beautiful experience!
Hey noone likes their computer to die. But mine died horribly one Friday night. After about 6 hours of banging my head against it, and serious contemplation of throwing it through the damn window I decided I needed help. I called Nerds Next Door, and the whole experience was great. They were friendly and knowledgeable on the phone. They obviously knew what they were talking about. The technician was great, very friendly, very helpful. We were very impressed with their service. And the price was fantastic, about a third of what I have paid the Geek Squad. Saved me hundreds of bucks. Thanks Marcos, Ben and David. Will definitely use you guys again.
This place is absolutely stunning! When I first walked into the door, I didn't know where to start off, because there were so many dresses in my face! Miz Scarlett is so polite. The lady who works there two months out of the year is so polite. Even though there were so many customers in Mz. Scarletts, the lady still managed to assist me and my friend right away for our prom fittings. She hand selects dresses that match what you are looking for. I never have been to a prom store with TWO floors. It was amazing. When we sat down, she offered us a refreshment. Very polite people. I would recommend Mz. Scarletts to any girl/woman looking for a dress.
After 4 other stops, we were so disappointed in the bridal gown shopping experience. LaRaines saved our day! It was an AWESOME experience with my daughter & made for great memories! Our consultant was Topher and he was pleasant, professional, & could not have been more helpful, and fun to boot! He listened to what we wanted and aimed to find my daughter the dress of her dreams...and he accomplished the goal! Don't let the shop atmosphere fool you into thinking that you can't find an affordable dress. We found an unbelievable dress for an unbelievable price! And enjoyed the journey in the process!! Thanks LaRaines and thanks Topher!
