This was THE best experience I had while dress shopping. Joanna takes such pride in her collection. All of the samples looked as if they had never been worn. I also loved how she took the time to look at photos of dresses I had tried on, but then also recommended some different... Read More ideas that still fit with my overall vision. I absolutely fell in LOVE with the dress she picked for me. Not only did I find a dress that exceeded my dreams, it was well under my $3,000 budget (I didn't even think that was possible with a designer gown!!). Joanna really made it a special appointment and a memory I will always share with my family. Her salon is intimate and beautiful and truly worth booking an appointment for THE dress.

What an amazing time in Forever Amour Bridal. It was fate: Joanna was very flexible and able to squeeze me in for the very last appointment of the day, so my mom could make it into the city in time. Her "ladies-in-waiting" greeted us with smiles and a helping hand. I told her... Read More the type of wedding I was craving and she knew exactly what I wanted. The third dress I tried on ended up being "the one." I can't believe I found such a wonderful dress, on the first go, at an unparalleled price! Do not walk, RUN to Forver Amour Bridal. Thank you, Olivia H

What a wonderful experience! Joanna was awesome from the start! She was patient and very interested in me finding my dress! If you are looking for a small boutique experience then this the shop for you! I wanted a opposite experience of Kleindfield and Joanna shop was perfect!... Read More Joanna is such a warm and caring person. She treated my family so well and we had such a good time ! She didn't rush us nor did I feel rush! I found my dress by the second one! The process was easy and not complicated. And the price was definitely what I was looking for! I got a great deal without going broke. Joanna gives great advice and that for sure goes a long way! I appreciate her guidance regarding buying dress. My time there was perfect and a blessing! You won't regret going to Forever Amour Bridal Boutique!

My mother- in -law to be and I visited Forever Amour Bridal recently. This was now the 4th bridal shop I'd gone to, so I certainly did not expect to find my dream wedding dress on that day. Joanna and the intern working with her, Sarah, were very professional, personable, and... Read More warm. My bridal shopping anxiety had gone away when Joanna expressed interest in what I was looking for when she asked me to tell her more about myself and my style. Plus, Joanna asked to see photos of dresses that I tried on before to get a better idea of my style preferences. I had not received this much attention at any of the other bridal shops I'd gone to. The bridal selection at this shop seemed small. However, it was impressive how Joanna would pick out dresses that closely represented my style. It was not long before Joanna and Sarah helped me slip into THE dress. If Joanna would have allowed me, I would have stood on the pedestal and admired myself in that fabulous dress for hours. The boutique is very organized and the dresses are kept in pristine condition. Thank you to Forever Amour Bridal for helping me find a phenomenal dress that is flattering and just perfect for me.

Forever Amour... where do I even begin? This was the first place I looked for a dress, and also the last. The owner Joanna, designer Jude, and interns at the shop are all a dream.

After saying "yes", they had a bottle of champagne ready to pop and celebrate with me. From beginning to end, the fittings process was as smooth as could be. I was more than taken care of, and genuinely felt like my well-being and taste as a bride was their #1 priority. I truly could not rave more about this place - Joanna and Jude, you are the greatest!

I had a wonderful experience shopping at Forever Amour with Joanna. I went in looking for a specific dress during a trunk show-- it was my first time trying on dresses but I had a feeling it would be the one. Joanna had me try on a few other dresses first, which helped me be... Read More absolutely positive about the one I ultimately chose. Joanna put so much time and consideration into my appointment, was inclusive of my friends, and truly made me feel beautiful. When I went back to pick it up about six weeks later, even in the middle of a hectic day, Joanna took the time to let me try the dress on for my mom, who hadn't been able to go to my first appointment. She then even let us go out to lunch and come back again for the dress so we didn't have to carry it around! Joanna is kind, gracious, fair, and fun! I would recommend her services at Forever Amour to everyone.

From the moment we walked in, we felt at ease with Joanna. She has a beautiful boutique salon in NYC, and it was a calm escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. Before we got started, Joanna took the time to ask me what kind of dress I was looking for and she excitedly... Read More looked through pictures I had saved on my phone. She then pulled a selection of beautiful dresses for me to try on and was very patient as my family and I took pictures of each dress and talked. She also let me sort through her entire dress selection in case there were other dresses I liked and wanted to pull. It was so much fun! The best part is we never once felt rushed or pressured to purchase any of the dresses, which made me feel very comfortable and not at all anxious! Joanna is so professional! She has a fabulous selection of gowns at unbeatable prices. I highly recommend shopping here for your dream dress. You certainly will receive the best experience here without all of the frills that you will find at the larger shops.

I had an excellent experience at Forever Amour and am so pleased to say that I found my dress there. I was feeling a bit stuck in my search, as my budget was under $1000 and I had already made the rounds at Bhldn and DB. I wasn't sure where to turn next for affordable gowns in... Read More NYC, but then I found Forever Amour on The Knot, and noticed they were having a sample sale. I had no idea that sample sales could be so civilized - I only shared the room with one other bride, and I had the full attention of 2 girls as well as Joanna. The experience was very relaxed and I felt encouraged to try on as many dresses as I wanted. I was really pleased to find so many dresses in my price range - how unexpected! I found a stunning beaded strapless gown for $750 and could not be happier. I would highly recommend visiting Joanna's boutique regardless of your budget. If I remember correctly, the custom gowns start at $3k or so, and they looked absolutely gorgeous. The only advice I have for Forever Amour is to consider offering their brides a beverage when they come in for appointments. (Especially in the summer!) All in all, I had a great experience at Forever Amour. Just when I thought I was running out of options for my budget I found the perfect dress, of superior, couture quality, for such a reasonable price. Joanna, thank you for helping me find the one!!

I’m from Panama and I went to NYC to find my dreamed wedding dress. Before visiting this boutique, I went to the most recognized bridal stores in NYC. Forever Amour was my last appointment... Honestly, I went to the store sad and completely disappointed due to my past... Read More experiences with the other bridal boutiques… Oh well… Thank God I didn't found anything in the previously visited stores. Forever Amour was everything I expected from a bridal boutique in NYC: gorgeous assortment and outstanding customer service. Actually, my experience was above and beyond perfect. For my surprise, the prices were amazing too. Forever Amour has the best assortment in wedding dresses. What differentiates this bridal boutique of any other is the quality of the assortment. Every dress was spectacular. The veils and hair accessories were stunning too. The samples were in perfect conditions. I have worked for the last ten years on the retail industry and this is the best customer service that I ever have received. It felt very real and sincere. Joanna is an angel. Honestly, she’s the best. She is so kind and nice. She made me feel super comfortable and special. She has such a good vibe. All of her suggestions were beautiful and accurate. It was like she can read minds! I spent $3,200 and that includes my wedding dress, veil and hair accessory. That was only the 20% of what I projected to spend in my wedding dress. I’m missing words to say thank you for your kindly help and patience. This place totally saved my trip to NYC! Thank you Joanna! Wishing you all the best and tons of success, Alexandra

I went to maybe 25 salons before this. Ok I admit, I liked looking for the right dress. But when it came to being decisive? I wasn't.

They know how to give you what you want, are responsive to email (which is how I usually voiced changes I wanted during the fitting process, after the photos settled in), graceful, and great at helping deal with all the personalities I brought to them. I grew to really care about those two! They are on your side. They helped me articulate what I had imagined into reality and gave me a beautiful custom gown. There was a decent amount of back and fourth around alterations but I always found them easy to work with and happy to put in the efforts I request. They manage to give a local small town feel to this big NYC. They remember all about you and make you feel great everytime you go there. I highly recommend.

I visited this salon several weeks ago with my daughter who is the bride, and we were immediately made to feel at home by Joanna. The salon was intimate and we were the only ones there. All Joanna's attention was on the bride, she was not distracted by other customers, phones... Read More or anything else.
