Pearl's Place is fairly easy to find, just off a major highway and open seven days a week. There selection is ginormous and their attendants are friendly and know their stuff. They have decent prices, are willing to negotiate and alterations are included in the price. However, they are always busy! Be prepared to spend the better part of your day there!
Pearls place has the largest selections of wedding gowns. They were friendly and professional!
Michelle at Pearl's Place was such a wonderful help! She helped me find my perfect dress that I have been searching high and low for. The store was getting ready to close and she did not care, she helped me anyways. We did not feel rushed by her and I was finally able to say YES to MY dress! She accessorized it perfectly and I loved everything she suggested! Thank you so much Michelle!!
I got my bridesmaid dresses from Pearl's Place. They were very friendly,and did free alterations. Every time I would go or call the store they would help me with any question or concern I have.
LOVE this place!! Found my PERFECT wedding dress at this store. The ladies that work here are fantastic & willing to help the best way they can!! I would recommend this place to anyone!! I had so many compliments of my dress! This place is also reasonable for prices!
I waited until 5 months before my wedding to get my dress. The staff was patient and quick to ensure that the dress would be ready on time.
Ruth helped me find me dress, she had the time and patience to deal with me and my entourage and gave me her honest input (whether you want it or not you're getting it which is best in my opinion). I found the perfect dress with her help!!
Tena helped my mom find her dress and she tells you like it is but she is so sincere and hilarious!!! She definitely made our trip here well-worth it, and she helped my mom pick out a GORGEOUS backless dress that my mom never would have worn in a million years, but with Tena's convincing and contagious attitude my mom bought it and my mom looks amazing and gorgeous in that dress!!
They were all so so so friendly and helpful here! I highly recommend Pearl's Place!!!
Not to mention they do FREE alterations!! ;)
I bought my wedding dress and my bridesmaids also bought their dresses from Pearls. They are fairly easy to work with and have a friendly staff. The wait time on the other hand is crazy for alterations. On one of my 3 fittings I waited 5 hours and I arrived at 9:50 a.m. It's truly exhausting to sit and wait all day.
I'm not originally from New Orleans, but when I asked around, I kept hearing about Pearl's. They have an amazing selection and I really appreciated that the consultants do not work on commission. I knew that she just wanted to find a dress that I loved no matter if it was at my maximum budget. Of course with it being the pillar of Bridal shops in New Orleans comes the crowds. My experience on the week days was drastically different from the weekends. So, if you want to have a more calm and leisurely time, it is definitely worth taking off of work and going during the week. Also, alterations are included in the price of the dress!
They have a huge selection and are really good if you need a dress last minute, but I wasn't too happy with them. I bought my reception dress from them because they said they could alter it to fit snug to my body. It was a little loose around my stomach, but the seamstress refused saying it would mess up the lace. If that was the case, they should have told me in the beginning, and I wouldn't have wasted a thousand dollars on a dress that wouldn't fit properly.
They were the only ones that carried the Alfredo Angelo Disney collection in the city. They get too busy on weekends for their own good. I did not get my dress altered here because of past experiences. One of my BM was pregnant at the time and they ordered her a 14.. needless to say 3 months post baby she was back to her normal size with a huge dress.
Get ready for a zoo of a place!!!! But you will pay a few hundred less.
I loved everything up until alterations. They were very helpful in helping me select my dress, LiShon is awesome!!! After my dress came in is when I started having issues... Poor service on the fitting and alterations side. The alterations were poorly done, I was VERY DISAPPOINTED with the alterations, they TOTALLY ruined a beautiful gown... If you use this shop, have your alterations done elsewhere!!!
I purchased six bridesmaid dresses in October from Pearl's Place, the Alexia 892 in floor length. Being that I am from Ohio, and heard good things about this business, I placed a phone call order with one of the associates. Long story short, the dresses came in short and not the color I had seen from the swatch card. When I called to see if there was anything we could do(return them, get a discount on another dress), we received a firm NO. I was told that I WAS NEGLIGENT, this was my fault for not recognizing that they did not write the letter "L" after the style number on the receipt. I had already called Pearl's Place twice the day of the order to make sure the dresses were ordered in Long. I was heartbroken that my wedding is 4 months from now and I have to not only be out $840 but go find new dresses for my bridesmaids. The staff I spoke to that day (pretty much everyone there) was not willing to do anything to make this situation better. I was repeatedly told that it was my fault and they delivered the order that they were supposed to. Since that time and when "Elaine" saw how upset I was, she immediately apologized and tried to help in every way. I received a refund after the dresses were shipped back to help cushion some of the wedding stress that had become. Elaine was very helpful and nice. I encourage anyone that uses pearls place to see Elaine for a pleasant experience
I have heard horror stories about Pearl's Place. Initially, I told anyone who would listen that there was NO WAY I was going to Pearl's Place. Well, things changed. First, they have almost any designer you can dream of and I saw a picture in a magazine of a dress that I wanted to try on. The only place that had that dress in New Orleans was Pearl's Place. When I showed up, I was able to be seen and helped quickly. The first dress I tried on ended up being my dress. Everything went smoothly. Alterations are included for basic things like hems and taking a dress in, but I had to pay extra for a French Bustle, which was a little frustrating. My bridesmaids got their dresses from there as well and everything went really smoothly.
The one recommendation I would make to future brides and bridal parties is that you should always go during the week and early. They open at 10 and you should be there right when they open. This is your best chance of getting your alterations done in a reasonable time. I heard some people that came in around 11:30 would have to come back at 3. I have heard worse stories about going on a Saturday.
These people do not tell you the truth. They say you must order a dress as soon as possible to get it in on time. Also, my entire dress had to be re-made, yes, re-made by a private seamstress due to their seamstress department not knowing what they are doing. The mistakes that had to be corrected were unbelievable. I would NEVER refer anyone here. Also, after you pay for the dress you are treated as cattle in a herd. One of the owner's wont even tell you hellp after she's seen you 10+times in the past. Once you've bought the dress you are treated as nothing. BEFORE you buy the dress they cater to you and again, do not tell you the truth. DO NOT USE PERALS PLACE...run to the hills. Go to Yvonne LaFleur and see how wonderfully special you are treated!! Thanks to Pearls' Place my wedding dress experience was the worst! AND HAD TO PAY TO GET THE DRESS THEY MESSED UP SO BADLY IN ALERATIONS COMPLETELY REMADE! Therby not being ready until night before my wedding. his is an awful place.
I wanted to inform every new bride that Pearl's Place should be the first place you look for a wedding dress. This is the second time I've been to Pearl's place and have been a participant of a purchase of a wedding dress. One for my daughter and one for my daughter-in-law to be. I do have to admit that the experience of purchasing a wedding dress last Saturday was definitely a difficult feat. However, with the years of experience, knowledge, confidence and most importantly the patience of our customer representative which I will proudly name (Michelle)we finally purchased a breathe taking wedding gown for my new daughter-in-law. Thank you Michelle. You definitely earn five stars from me. *****
I am a plus sized bride who knew I didn't want to compromise on my big day. I wanted drama and bling and the dress I special ordered from Pearl's was fantastic and blew my husband and guests away!
I went to Pearl's Place after learning that they were one of two boutique's in Louisiana to carry the dress I wanted. I went in, and the girl helped me immediately (I went on a Friday afternoon during the summer). After purchasing the dress, it came in six months later. My alterations of hemming were free, but to add bra cups into my dress was extra. My dress fit fantastic, so I have nothing bad to say. My only complaint is the wait times for alterations and just feel crammed in the store.
I have to admit, I was a little hesitant to shop here after reading a lot of negative reviews, but I decided to give them a shot considering the huge selection of gowns that they carry. I got my dress and my bridesmaid dresses from Pearl's. I didn't have any issues with either. If you want a little more of the one-on-one bridal experience, go on a weekday. Saturdays are absolute madness, and they only take appointments on weekdays. They include free alterations with the purchase of you gown, which is nice. I was a little nervous about alterations, and I had to have 3 fittings for them to get everything right, but the dress turned out beautiful. I would recommend Pearl's Place, but just know that it won't be like a bridal boutique experience. I think if you go in knowing that, you'll leave happy. And the prices are great!
