Joanna was lovely to work with. She is happy to let you try dresses and to accommodate your preferences. This is the kind of bridal studio to go if you like the personal and intimate experience.

Alena was the perfect person to alter my wedding dress. I have a Watters dress that was too big, too long, and in need of a bustle for my reception.…
I booked a lot of bridal salons prior coming to Forever Amour, and I canceled all other salons after visiting this one. The visit is super intimate, which I don't think you can find this kind of experience anywhere else in the city. Plus Joanna is such an easy going person. She was super patient and helpful during the fitting, this took a lot of pressure out of the wedding dress shopping experience. Also, in the end I got to meet Darryl, the designer of my wedding dress, and he is such a sweet person with unforgettable personalities which reflected on the dresses he designed. The only regret that I have is I didn't start my dress hunting with Forever Amour, because there is no need to visit else where when you land here.
I visited this salon several weeks ago with my daughter who is the bride, and we were immediately made to feel at home by Joanna. The salon was intimate and we were the only ones there. All Joanna's attention was on the bride, she was not distracted by other customers, phones or anything else. She accommodated us by letting my daughter try on as many dresses as she wanted and allowed us to experiment with different accessories. It was truly a unique boutique experience. Besides ready made gowns offered at very reasonable prices, Joanna also works with designers to make custom wedding gowns as well at an unbelievable price. My daughter did not buy a dress the first visit, but after experiencing the frenzy of other boutiques we returned to Forever Amour Bridal and purchased the wedding gown. My daughter wanted to change the shape of the skirt and Joanna sent us to a wonderful old world style seamstress who is tailoring the dress for her.I highly recommend a visit to Forever Amour Bridal.
If you are looking for that special bridal experience than look no further. You have to go to Forever Amour Bridal Boutique. Joanna was simply amazing! She has a natural talent for finding the perfect dress for this special moment. I truly appreciated her constant honesty and felt like I really bonded with her over a short amount of time. I never felt like she was just looking to sell me any dress - she wanted to find me the dress that was meant for me. Thank you Joanna for giving me this amazing experience and this beautiful memory.
This was THE best experience I had while dress shopping. Joanna takes such pride in her collection. All of the samples looked as if they had never been worn. I also loved how she took the time to look at photos of dresses I had tried on, but then also recommended some different ideas that still fit with my overall vision. I absolutely fell in LOVE with the dress she picked for me. Not only did I find a dress that exceeded my dreams, it was well under my $3,000 budget (I didn't even think that was possible with a designer gown!!). Joanna really made it a special appointment and a memory I will always share with my family. Her salon is intimate and beautiful and truly worth booking an appointment for THE dress.
Amoure Bridal is located in the Citadel Mall in an old Abercrombie store. When I first walked in I was a little put off by the Abercrombie décor and the dark lighting. I thought I would just be looking around and quickly leaving. Mrs. Sheila was absolutely wonderful and her customer service was so appreciated. Another bride was in the large dressing room so Mrs. Sheila shut down the whole bridal area to turn it into my personal dressing room. Amoure Bridal has dresses in every price range and I was so excited to find a whole section of Maggie Sottero gowns. Amoure may not seem like your ideal, upscale bridal boutique, but I could not be more pleased with my dress find and the customer service received.
My husband and I ordered everything through DeBorah's Bridal. His tuxedo looked great and my dress look perfect against my body. DeBorah took special care to make sure our needs were met since both of us live out of state. She's a great listener and has over 20 years experience in alterations, which provided adjustments we needed.
Alena was the perfect person to alter my wedding dress. I have a Watters dress that was too big, too long, and in need of a bustle for my reception. The dress now fits like it was made for me, and Alena made a gorgeous, three-button bustle which transforms the dress into something different, but equally as beautiful as it is without the bustle (her idea-kind of looks like the back of Belle's ball gown in Beauty and the Beast). All in all very pleased and excited to show off the dress in a few weeks!
My weding dress fit me perfectly. The communication with Alena was pleasant and quick. No stress at all. Thank you very much for being such a talented designer!
I took my MOH dress to Alena to alter. Not only was it 6 sizes too big, but it had rouching across the chest that I thought would be impossible to alter correctly. She did an amazing job fixing what I would call an "unfixable dress." She was kind, pleasant to deal with, and was just as concerned as I was with the overall outcome. So nice for someone to understand the terror of a MOH dress not looking right! Every time I called, txt, or email Alena- she got right back to me within the afternoon. She was honest and upfront with the amount of work that needed to be done to my dress, and she even had my dress ready a week early! Whether you are looking for a good seamstress, or someone to customize a dress, Alena is the best is Charleston! I will definitely call her again!
