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!
Cathy and Scarlett made my dress shopping experience so relaxing and fun. I mentioned a few ideas about what type of dress I wanted and when we got there Scarlett had already pulled a few dresses for me to try. It didn't take long to find the perfect dress! I would definitely recommend this shop to other brides!
I cannot sing Formally Yours' praises loud enough! The wonderful family-run bridal boutique and formal wear specialty shop is full of gorgeous gowns and dresses for any and EVERY beautiful occasion. Cathy Butler, the owner, has such a natural talent of being able to listen to a customer's requests and listen to what she wants, as well as using expertise of her own, to find the picture-perfect dress. This gift clearly runs in the family because her daughter and store manager, Scarlett Sugar, is so kind, helpful and shares the same qualities and great eye.
I have been a loyal customer of Formally Yours for 14 years. It has always and forever will be mine and my family's one stop shopping with a smile! I have found every special dress from junior cotillion, homecoming, prom and formals to all the in between at this fabulous boutique. But one dress that I will forever cherish close to my heart and never in my lifetime forget is my gorgeous wedding gown. Cathy and Scarlett had endless beautiful gowns to choose from and I loved every one of them, but as the truth states, 'you know' when it's the one. It was and still is the dress of my dreams and so much more. As if finding my favorite dress in the world at Formally Yours wasn't enough, I also found my leaving the reception dress, bridesmaids dresses, flower girls dresses, Mother of the Bride dress, Mother of the Groom dress, and countless family members and guests dresses as well.
As I said at the beginning, I can go on and on and on RAVING about Formally Yours. Formally Yours is absolutely full of expertise, service, gorgeous gowns, beautiful dresses, special accessories and so much fun!
Formally Yours was amazing to work with!! I was a very indecisive bride and they were so patient with me and my family. They let me come in multiple times to try on my dress and really helped me decide what dress fit my venue and me the best. I also ordered all of my bridesmaids dresses from here and they made it so simple. Not all the girls live in GA so they let them call in to purchase their dresses and tell their sizes. I HIGHLY recommend Formally Yours! Thank you to all the ladies that helped me! I am still in love with my dress.
Loved my experience at Formally Yours! My wedding is in December and so many other stores made it sound like a short engagement was such a stressful thing. Kathy never acted like that should be a concern at all. I was able to take my mom, sisters, and grandmother with me. We were all encouraged to look at dresses together, pick what we liked, and start trying them on. I loved the laid back atmosphere, the no-pressure environment, and the selection of dresses. I purchased the 3rd dress I tried on and am very happy with my decision!
Really had a good experience with this bridal shop. The dress came in a timely manner and the alterations were wonderful.
I was taken to Formally Yours by my Matron of Honor, who also purchased her dress there over 4 years ago! When we went in all of the ladies were so helpful and genuine with their advise and suggestions. They gave suggestions on belts, veils, different options they could do with the dress. The area where you walk out in your dress is pretty open so other consultants can chime in and give advise if they know of a dress that you may like better based on the feedback you are giving them. We had SUCH a wonderful experience! We also came back to look for bridesmaid dresses and Scarlet and her mom were determined to help (I was exhausted from searching). Sure enough, we found the bridesmaid dresses there! It really was a one stop shop for us. And the customer service was better than any shop we visited. Thank you guys so much!
Cathy and her team at Formally Yours were wonderful to work with through the entire process. It was the first place I went to when shopping for a wedding gown, and I immediately felt comfortable and knew I'd be taken care of. They made me feel like I was the only girl in there shopping, and we had FUN! Most importantly as someone with a few curves, they were HONEST, and weren't going to let me walk out with something that did not fit my body. They kept me well informed on when my items were arriving, and celebrated with me and my mom when I got to have MY dress (not just the one you try on). It was overall a wonderful experience working with them, and I'm going to greatly miss my frequent visits to see Cathy and Scarlet. I highly recommend Formally Yours! They have fairly priced dresses and the service cannot be beat!
They were so awesome to work with- helped picked out a great sash for my dress as well as altered for a fantastic price!
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!
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.
