Formally Yours in… Lawrenceville? Lilburn? Something like that. We had Taylor and she was helpful without being pushy. They have a ton of dresses in the price range I thought you were looking at, but you do have to wade through them cause they’re all hanging pretty close together.

I loved Priscilla of Boston, I had Ellen and she was FAB!!! But my true love lies with Sweet Elegance Bridal in Decatur, the mother and daughter team there are PHENOMENAL and they really know their stuff! They have been invaluable!

I use Bridals by Lori off of Roswell Rd in Sandy Springs and LOVE THEM!! You get the special “bride experience” and we have never ahd any problems with them at all. They have everything you need for wardrobe from wedding dresses, veils, jewelry, shoes, bridesmaids dresses, MOB dresses, clutches/bags, garters, gifts, and even a mens floor for tuxes plus in-house alterations. I have met my designer 2x at a trunk show and it was so fun and when we bought my wedding dress at his trunk show, we received 12 1/2% off and a sketch of my gown!! The people are so nice, even when you’re not buying! I’ve been in there 2x now to try on my gown to show my family and they were so sweet about it, couldn’t ask for more!

Also, TLC is shooting a new bridal version of Say Yes To The Dress and if you go looking for a dress, you could be featured on the show!!

Definitely reccommend them! And they’re not too unreasonable with price!

  • Wedding: October 2010

I visited several stores in Atlanta and sadly didn’t fall in love with any of them. I was looking for a mermaid/trumpet style dress with no lace.


Afordable Bridal..they didn’t seem to pay any attention to me. Just pointed me in the direction of the dresses in my size and didn’t have any in a style I was looking for. (that when I called they said they had several)

Formally Yours..It’s a nice store, but my consultant didn’t listen to what I wanted. They had a few non-aline dresses, but it was hard finding them with how packed their racks were. I also kept hearing from other that worked there “She’s so tiny” and that’s an auto turn off for me. I know I’m small, but I don’t like to hear about it every 10 seconds. Also, I didn’t want an opinion that I should change my wedding colors because you think the dress looks prettier with a different sash.

LaRanie’s Bridal…This seemed like a nice little store, until the dress I loved didn’t come in white and the owner looked at me like I should settle for the ivory, because this is a nice fabric that isn’t white.

Esquiste Bridal…This is a very nice store, but again she only had 3-5 non-aline ballgowns.

David’s Bridal…Well I went in expecting nothing and well I got worse. I kept getting told I should like something else. When I stated what I wanted I got everything but. Thankfully DFi and friends were there to stand up with me.


I know my opinions aren’t the norm, but I like for people to be aware. If you aren’t looking for an a-line ballgown it’ll be rough goings in Atlanta.

I went to Bridals by Lori this past weekend and got my dress! They were really really helpful and I felt well taken care of. I ended up with a Lazaro gown.

I went to several:

Wedding Angels in Roswell, where I got my dress from. They are super nice and helpful, and the manager has a great eye for style & design. They’re small, too, so I never felt like I was just shoved off to the side. Karen, the manager, was very patient and sweet with me and went out of her way to help me decide between the sample or new dress, and was never pushy, and definately didn’t seem to be trying to push me towards more expensive options. In fact, she gave me a discount to bring the dress I wanted within my price range.

Bride Beautiful in Roswell (?) off 400 at any rate. I also had a very good experience here, and it’s a bigger place so has a huuuuge selection. I was strongly considering one of their dresses before I fell in love with mine at Wedding Angels.

Brittany Leigh Bridals…well, I don’t want to say anything bad, as they were nice, but the owner was a little pushy and I felt a bit pressured. Also, I went in October and she still calls me…but if you know what you’re after and are comfortable speaking your mind, then you’d probably be fine here.

I wanted to second Sweet Elegance in Decatur – the mother/daughter team are amazing and really know what they are doing.  They also have a great selection – not just A-line/ballgown.  They actually had me try on a mix of what I thought I was looking for along with different styles that I never would have picked, just to make sure I didn’t have dress or style regret after the fact.

I love Bridals by Lori– doing my dress and Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses from there.

For good Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses, try Bella Bridesmaid. Quite good.


P.S. I’m sure you probably know this, but make sure for the bridal salons that you make an appointment, especially since it will be on the weekend! I know a lot of them tend to get irritated or won’t even serve you if you aren’t an existing customer and just “drop in.”
