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!

Best dress shopping experience by far! posted 1/21/2012 (modified 10/25/2012)

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!

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!

Love this place!! posted 10/10/2014 (modified 10/10/2014)

Formally Yours has always been my go to store for high school proms, so of course I went back when I was in search of my wedding dress! Cathy, Scarlett, and the whole team at Formally Yours are wonderful! They are all so professional and welcoming. I never felt rushed or pressure to buy. I told them the styles I was looking for, and they helped me find so many beautiful gowns. I ended up purchasing the very first of the many dresses I tried on. It was everything I had ever imagined my wedding dress would be. I couldn't have found a more perfect dress. I also purchased a jeweled belt and veil from Formally Yours. I had wanted a double layer veil, and when we couldn't find what I was describing, Scarlett called the designer and had them custom make one for me. My bridesmaid dresses also were ordered from Formally Yours. I can't say enough great things about Formally Yours. Finding my dream wedding dress and bridesmaid dresses were the easiest decisions during my wedding planning! Thank you so much, Formally Yours!!!!

Awesome! posted 10/9/2014

My experience at Formally Yours was amazing! Cathy and Scarlett are so kind and helpful. I went in with several ideas in mind, not really knowing where to start. I picked several dresses, and Cathy and Scarlett did for me as well. Cathy showed me a dress on the mannequin and suggested I try it - I kind of scoffed at it, but figured, "what the heck?" As fate would have it, I tried that same dress on and fell in love. If you're looking for professionals - people who really know their stuff - go here. I couldn't imagine going anywhere else. Highly recommended!

I have been purchasing dresses from Formally Yours since high school. I have been extremely happy with my purchase and experience every single time I visit. Therefore, there was nowhere else I would have purchased my wedding dress other than Formally Yours.

Scarlett, Cathy, and the entire Formally Yours staff make shopping for a wedding dress such an unforgettable experience. They truly take the time to show you dresses that fit your style and budget, and also bring you dresses in your budget that they think will look great on you. A definite plus is that they will never push a dress on you if they don't think it looks amazing or if they can tell you don't love it. They truly want you to look your best and be completely happy with your purchase.

I have recommended so many family members and friends to Formally Yours because no bridal shop can possibly compare. Their prices can't be beat, the staff is so knowledgeable and helpful, and you will walk out of the store a completely satisfied customer, with a beautiful dress perfect for your special day. There is no other bridal shop in Atlanta that I'd recommend. Formally Yours is the best there is!

I was a little nervous about dress shopping because I wasn't sure what would look good on me and I've heard dress shopping can get complicated. But everything was easy at Formally Yours! Cathy instantly recognized my vision and pulled several dress, in budget, to match it. I fell in love with the first dress I tried on. Cathy nailed it! She found a veil I loved to match it as well. She really has an eye for what will look good, and you can tell she's experienced. I wasn't expecting to have the "say yes to the dress" moment with all the crying and excitement but I did! I never felt pressured to picked a dress, so I think I truly was able to fall in love with the gown. My mom and I got a little confused with dress colors (they never look like what they're named!) and Cathy has been wonderfully patient with helping us figure it out. Not only has she explained all the different shades of white but she helped us picked the right one for my skin tone. She answered our questions quickly when we followed up with her about our order. I couldn't be happier with the service I've received or my dress!

One stop shop! posted 9/20/2014 (modified 9/20/2014)

I couldn't have had a better experience shopping for my mom's mother of the bride dress and my dress for the rehearsal dinner. Cathy and all of the employees were super helpful and made the experience fun and special. I wish I would have known about this place when looking for my wedding dress! Definitely the place to go and a one stop shop for all of your wedding attire needs.

Formally Yours is amazing! posted 9/17/2014

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!

Simply Amazing posted 9/9/2014

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.

Stress-Free! posted 8/9/2014

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!

I said "YES" posted 7/21/2014

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!

Mrs. Lindsey Reissig posted 6/19/2014

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!

Beautiful Dress posted 1/2/2014 (modified 1/3/2014)

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!!

Great dress, terrible customer service posted 1/2/2014 (modified 1/3/2014)

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!
