Formally Yours was the second store that I went to looking for a wedding gown. The staff was amazing and so courteous. Never once did I feel pressured to buy anything or hurried because they had another appointment coming in. The dress selection is not only big but offers a variety of dresses and designers.
I tried on a few dresses and would pick out the part I liked best about each. The consultant then went and found the dress that had all the elements I was looking for. Fell in love with the dress and bought it that day!
I have and will continue to recommend Formally Yours to all my friends and family!
Thank you so much for your kind words! We really appreciate your business!!

Formally Yours was such a breath of fresh air after the absolute PANDEMONIUM I experienced at David's. I have never felt so much like a princess. We went on a Sunday afternoon, and I received more personal attention than any bride could ask for! We were greeted immediately and got a dressing room started right away. They really took the time to find out the exact kind of dress I was hoping to find, and they found it. The woman who helped us was absolutely incredible. She has truly found her calling!

My experience at Formally Yours has just been perfect! I love that you are able to view their gowns online. I was able to choose gowns I wanted to try on prior to even going to the salon. All the staff has been very helpful and easy going. You definitely won't feel pressured here!

I got married in June of 2011, Formally yours was the first and only bridal shop I went to when trying to find my wedding dress. Everyone at the bridal shop made me feel like I was the most beautiful bride there and they made finding a wedding dress easy! I 100% recommend this bridal shop to anyone who is looking for a wedding dress and more! I recently recommended a friend there and she loved it just as much! You can't go wrong with formally yours! :-)

Wonderful dress shop!! First my dress was gorgeous and a great price!!! I went to a few shops and without a doubt the BEST place to get a dress! The staff is amazing and not at all pushy. If you want them to help they will and if you want to look and be just with your group then they will let you. They don't go in the dressing room with you and put you in dresses you don't even want to try on! They have an in house seamstress that is great with alterations! My sister got her dress here too and we would both recommend this as the place for wedding dresses!!

My sister got her wedding dress from here, and everything went perfect, so I knew this is the place I wanted to get my dress from.
We got an appointment and the selection was great. Kathy(owner) helped out a lot. The dress trying on experience went incredibly well, I found many dresses that I loved, and narrowed down to one. It was a bit over our budget, but Kathy was able to make it work, and I was very appreciative. We had a shorter engagement (3 – 4 months) so I went in as soon as I could, and had about 3 months from the time of order to Delivery. They said the dress would come in fine, so we ordered and left. The next day, one of the girls at the shop called me and said that we had to do a rush on the dress to get in on time. So, we paid a little extra for the rush and were set. Per my understanding with the girl, the dress would come in on in mid to late November. (December 7th wedding).
Mid-November came, I hadn’t heard anything about the dress, so my mom called. The dressmaker had not shipped it yet, and it was to arrive either the week before the wedding, or early the following week. I started to stress out. The week of the wedding came and there was still no dress. I was worried about rushed alterations and the dress not fitting/looking bad because I wanted to feel confident and beautiful on my wedding day (my sister had to have alterations on her dress that took a couple of weeks). My mom called Kathy that Wednesday and asked about a certain ribbon that we tried on with the dress, and if they could throw in the ribbon (as the dress came in so late). Unfortunately, it had been sold (oh well). At some point in the conversation I think my mom mentioned that she didn’t want Kathy to end up getting a bad review online. Kathy then went completely crazy on my mom yelling at her about how much she had done for us (picked up the dress, gave us a little discount, that she said it was coming in that late from the beginning, she discounted the rush, etc.) She was also yelling saying “how could I do this to her” and “why was I threatening her”. My mom had to end up calming her down saying we didn’t know about the discounted rush, and thank her for picking it up, etc. All my mom was trying to say was the dress didn’t come in during the time frame that we understood it would, and that I was upset about not yet having the dress yet for the wedding. It was just really weird, and made me cry when I heard this from my mom. Even if we were wrong, there is ABSOLUTELY NO REASON to yell and berate an upset customer over the phone. You should communicate calmly and more professionally.
Thankfully at my fitting, the length was perfect and it was a lace-up back so it was able to fit to my waist. Therefore, the only alterations that needed to be done was adding some cups and putting the bustle on. The alterations woman did a good and quick job and I was happy with that.
Overall, the experience in the beginning was awesome. However the whole fiasco with Kathy yelling at my mom and not getting my dress until 2 days before the wedding put a real sour note in my mouth about this place, and made the week leading up to the wedding way more stressful and then it ought to have been. I definitely could have chosen a different dress that I liked if they had told me that I wouldn’t get it until that late. I’m not in the dress business, so I trusted their industry experience. Loved the dress, but not a fan of how Kathy yelled at my mom. Unprofessional.

I had a great experience at Formally Yours and they made finding my dress such a perfect and effortless process! I visited both the Lilburn and Cumming locations and worked with both Scarlett and Cathy. Each time was nothing shy of exceptional. Everyone listened to me and helped me select my dream dress! Great service and I recommend that everyone go to this store to find their wedding dress and attire for their bridal party. AMAZING!

Loved this place and all the employees who worked there. Found them on weddingwire otherwise I wouldn't have known they existed (I live in the city and they are in the burbs). Their dress selection was the best out of any of the places I went to. It was just like "magic" when I walked in...literally. The first dress I spotted on the mannequin was the one I ended up wearing. The ladies were all ooo's and aaa's. They made me feel very comfortable. Their in house seamstress is SUPER sweet and talented and reasonably priced. Their selection was great if you are trying to spend $500-$5000. They still had super great designers too. Very thankful I found them :-)

The staff at Formally Yours let me come in to their store 15 minutes before closing to try on a specific dress I had seen online. I had just finished with a long day of unsuccessful dress shopping and wanted to give it one more shot. I was so thankful to be welcomed by a group of smiling ladies willing to help me into this dress. As soon as I put it on I knew it was the one! My mom also purchased her dress here and loved it as much as I loved mine. We also got alterations done here and were very pleased with the work.

The shop was great until I had to get my alterations done. The seamstress wouldn't listen to what I wanted and just started pinning things. She cut my sleeves in half right in the middle of the shoulder and didnt try to hide the seams. The buttons she added for the where not centered and looked like a 5 year old did them. When we pointed out everything that was wrong she wouldn't listen. I would recommend that you take your dress somewhere else to get altered!! I took mine somewhere else and they fixed it and redid some things and it was still cheaper than the seamstress at formally yours.

I started my wedding dress shopping at this store...and I ended at this store. The first dress I tried on here I bought! Their gowns are gorgeous and affordable. They're the ones you see in the magazines, but they are priced at a cost that fits each budget. I had such a fun experience at this store, and the help from the employees was great. Everyone at my wedding loved my dress!
Member Since: 5/7/2012
I LOVED this dress shop and have recommended it to all my friends! I loved that they knew my name every time I walked in the door! They were great about letting my know the status of my dress and bridesmaid dresses. Great prices too!!

I went to this shop because my sister in law found her amazing dress there. I tried on about 10 there and they were very helpful through the first 5 or so and then all of a sudden they stopped helping me put on the dresses and I had to stick my head out of the dressing room to ask someone to help me. I ended up finding my dress there and I love my dress, but I wish the customer service was a little better.

I had a good experience here. When I walked in, I showed a picture of what I was looking for and they took me immediately to one dress. We picked out a few but I ended up decided between two since I had already been to one other shop. They gave me some helpful things to help me decide. The only complaint is that I was never told when it would come in and it did take a while to get to me. Once I was notified, it was smooth sailing from there.

The girls are wonderful. Great value.

I used Formally Yours for our bridesmaid dresses and for my wedding dress alterations. The first time I visited the store to look at dresses before my bridesmaids tried them on, Cathy, immediatley greeted us and made us feel at home. She gave wonderful suggestions and made the whole process enjoyable instead of overwhelming as I had imagined it would be. My bridesmaids fell in love with the store too and loved the fact that the in house alterations were capped at $40. Every time I visited the store, the girls working were friendly and extremely helpful. I will definitly suggest Formally Yours to all future brides that I know.

They had beautiful dresses and wonderful service, but just didn't find my dress there. Would definitely recommend them, though

I went to many bridal salons and this one had the most dresses to pick through. They were incredibly patient and helpful. I didn't feel pushed to purchase a dress and they helped stay within my budget. They were awesome!
