I cannot express enough how happy I am to have found Joanna's store. I made 2 dress appointments, one at Kleinfelds & one at Forever Amour. Unfortunately, I had a terrible experience at Kleinfelds. Luckily, my 2nd appointment was at Forever Amour where I had an amazing experience and found my dream wedding dress! Joanna, the owner, and her team (her intern Emily helped me out) were so welcoming and thoughtful. I could see and feel their drive and excitement for helping me find my perfect dress, like we were in it together. On top of phenomenal service, the atmosphere was very welcoming. The shop is smaller for an intimate touch where you can find your dress without any other distractions. She allowed us to bring in champagne, which Kleinfelds did not. The best part, there were SO many dresses to chose from in all different styles, shapes and sizes. I was able to try on as many as I want and for how long I wanted. To top it off, my dress was SO affordable (best price I found). I can't think of a better dress shopping experience. I highly recommend the store to any future bride. Thanks, Joanna!
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! 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 best friend and bridesmaid surprised me with a trip to NYC for a weekend getaway and she booked an appointment with Joanna and her team while we were here. I have yet to do any dress shopping and was going in with ideas I had seen, plus I’m a curvier individual and I was worried they wouldn’t have my size. Boy was I wrong...Joanna and her designer asked me a few questions just to see what I was thinking and they both immediately had a dress in mind. It was the dress I had (and my mother had) seen online elsewhere that I wanted. It was the first and last dress I tried on and fell in love! The appointment was so private and such a perfect place for me to try on dresses. I can only imagine how any other place would have been. Thank you to an incredible experience and a great price as well.
I did not buy my dress here, and I honestly do not understand all the glowing reviews. I was extremely underwhelmed by the owner's approach in dealing with customers. She asked me the same questions multiple times but still didn't understand what I was looking for. She seemed very scattered an unorganized. Perhaps most disappointing, all the gowns are in small sizes, so there were quite a few that I couldn't even try on. If you wear above a size 6, don't expect to be able to try on many options.
I had a great experience here. I had gone shopping elsewhere, in the Midwest, and had found some dresses that I thought I liked--but I found the one that I couldn't stop thinking about here, at a much more affordable price than I had thought possible. Once I had taken the time--several days--to think it over and decide to move forward, the owner went above and beyond to get me the dress in record time, and she literally walked me to the seamstress who does alterations, to make sure I wouldn't get lost. So sweet! The store is lovely and there's a really great selection of dresses that are beautiful and classy, at very reasonable prices (who knew that was possible in Manhattan?!). I'm in the alterations process now but can't say enough good things about the dress-buying process itself. Thanks so much, Forever Amour!
I had an amazing experience with Joanna and her team! First of all, the salon is so pretty and comfortable and clean. I arrived and gave Joanna a quick description of what I was looking for and she and her assistant exchanged a look and said, "we have your dress." They didn't even have to explain it to each other -- her assistant was off and running to fetch the dress and sure enough, that was my dress!!! Joanna worked with me to stay in budget, even putting together a deal for me for the dress and veil. A few months later I came by to pick it up and Joanna's assistant helped me carry the dress to my car. Overall a really great and fun experience. Joanna is definitely the "dress whisperer!"
I stumbled upon Forever Amour by accident and I'm so happy I did! Joanna and her staff were very warm, friendly and helpful. She has a small selection but carries some great Italian dresses.
A good place to look for a dress! Joanna and her staff are very sweet and helpful. From the moment I got into her store, she made me feel at home and relaxed! She only does one appointment at a time, so the full attention is on only you! Joanna has so many styles of dresses to choose from. She starts the appointment by asking what type of style you are looking for and what your venue would be like. She then pulls so many beautiful options to try on. She really knows her products and what would look good on you. Overall I would highly recommend this place!! I had a wonderful experience!!!!
I had a phenomenal experience with Forever Amour. Within minutes of describing my perfect gown, Joanna paid perfect attention and pulled a dress "like this?" As soon as I put it on I had that moment where I immediately knew that was the dress. I was completely optimistic about tearing up when trying on gowns, but it made my experience worth it when I actually did. Some aspects I loved about the store: very clean. I at one point put my hand to my forehead in awe, and Joanna asked for me to use a wipe for my hand (in case I had foundation on, it won't get on the dress). I loved that the attention to detail as I was not thinking of information like that, and truly appreciate she was looking out for my perfect gown. I went to Kleinfelds and did not get as much appreciation as Joanna gave myself and my bridal party. I was not just a customer, I was a bride who needed someone to listen, and she truly delivered. Thank you very much!
Sooo happy!!! My wedding is 1 month away and Joanna was able to attend to my every need and want. She helped with dress selection and referred me to an amazing wedding dress trailer. I'm so happy our paths crossed. Thank you !
Joanna at Forever Amour Bridal Boutique is delightful. She was the only store in NYC to carry the Justin Alexander I wanted to try, so I quickly bee-lined to her intimate shop. When I wasn't 100% sure, she pulled a few additional dresses for me and helped me (patiently) arrive back at my original idea. The dress is beautiful, and I never would have been able to get it if she hadn't had a sample. Joanna was kind, friendly, and easy going throughout the appointment. Since then, she has been amazingly warm and supportive at every phase of the ordering, altering, and styling process. I super highly recommend visiting her at Forever Amour.
I went into Forever Amour for a trunk show. Jude Jowilson was one of the designers and he knew what I wanted before I even did. The first dress I ever tried on, was the dress I wore on my wedding day. I spent many days at the boutique because my dress was being custom made. Joanna and Jude listened to my every word and created the most beautiful dress! Every fitting was flawless and I could not have been happier with the outcome.
Joanna was awesome to work with! She made me feel comfortable, while helping me choose a dress that defined my bridal style. I loved having a one on one consultation with Joanna! Thank you
I can not begin to explain how amazing Joanna and her whole team are. My sister and I visited her establishment with an almost impossible timeline and she went above and beyond to help us. She took one look at my sister and made her dreams come true with THE PERFECT DRESS!!!!! Forever Amour Bridal is a class act. THANK YOU SO MUCH! I have never left a review before for anything but I had to this time.
I owe a HUGE THANKS to Joanna and Jude. Not only have they given me the wedding dress of my dreams, but have treated me like family during the entire process. Over the past year, I have had countless fittings to make the dress absolutely perfect. They are beyond accomodating and it so nice to be the only bride in the shop during my appointments! The amount of attention to detail and always listening to what I wanted (including sitting me down with a sketch incorporating ideas I had), it is no surprise Jude created the most beautiful dress I have ever seen and that fits me like a glove. He even made me a custom made bolero jacket theat complements the dress perfectly and looks absolutely seemless! It is a dress fit for royalty! I can't wait to show it off at my wedding. There will be many photos to come!
I had a great experience at Forever Amour! The boutique is intimate and clean and you can tell that they take very good care of their dresses. I visited the store while they were having a sample sale and I was surprised to see how reasonable the prices were on the non-sample dresses as well. There was a good variety of dresses (rustic to ballgowns) as well as a few custom made options. I sat down with the owner who selected a few dresses based on our brief discussion but I was also free to browse the racks as well. The staff was extremely patient and complimentary as I tried on multiple dresses. My appointment was the last appointment of the day and before I knew it, 2 hours had flown by, but I never felt rushed or pressured. I ended up purchasing my (sample, in incredible condition) wedding dress that day!
The boutique is a small, yet has an amazing selection of dresses. As a woman of shorter stature it was difficult finding a dress that would not swallow me up. I had a particular dress in mind which I struggled to find in other larger boutiques in NYC. As soon as I walked into Forever Armour there was my dress standing at the doorway waiting for me. My dress arrived with plenty of time to make the necessary alterations, which were impeccable. The seamstress a part of the Forever Armour team, Maria is incredibly talented and fast. Her skillful hand and quick turn around made working with the boutique on my dress a delightful and stress free process. I would recommend this boutique to any bride looking for the unique dresses.
I would not have expected to find my dress so fast, but thanks to Joanna and her team, I can't wait for my big day! I went to three bridal salons a few weeks ago when there was a major downpour in NYC. I switched my appointment for Forever Amour Bridal last minute so my friend could attend with me. When we got there, we had to take off our shoes before entering the salon, which at first seemed weird but in retrospect I appreciated knowing my dress wouldn't be dirtied by everyone's gross shoe particles. The salon is very small and by appointment only, but there is a huge variety in styles - I tried everything on from a ballgown to a mermaid to a high-low dress. Joanna was very conscientious of my budget, and didn't try to pull dresses for me she knew I wouldn't be able to afford. I ended up finding a sample sale dress at her salon that looks like a one of a kind piece, and needs minimal alterations done. Can't wait to say 'I do' in the dress of my dreams!
Joanna and Sarah were incredibly helpful! I found a gorgeous "Great Gatsby" inspired gown at a great price. Joanna listened to my suggestions and was able to intuitively sense my style without me having to say much (extremely important for a first timer!) and was considerate of my budget. Sarah was so sweet and calming; her presence made the appointment all the better. Forever Amour gave me a true bridal experience! Thank you!
From the moment I began corresponding with Joanna via email, I knew that Forever Amour Bridal was something special. My first positive vibe impression was that Joanna, the OWNER, was corresponding with me. Down to earth, but sassy to be certain, her larger-than-life personality made the experience personal and comfortable, and extremely fun. Now, I didn't think I had a tall order to fill, but it turns out, I'm rather particular. Rock n' roll meets boho meets comfort meets affordability left me feeling like few stores understood my personal style. At our appointment, Joanna and her assistants inquired about me, my fiance (who was with me), and our relationship. She let me choose some dresses, and then began her creative process of picking dresses the better she got to know me. She listened, and I am happy to say that it was Joanna, not me, who picked the perfect gown. She stayed in my price-range, while lovingly pushing me outside of my comfort zone. She uttered practical adages such as "if you don't like it, there's no sense in continuing to look at it." Joanna was as invested in my experience and my happiness as would be a mom or sister or aunt. There was a resounding emotional echo when we finally picked "the one" from Joanna and her fantastic staff. Great pricing and selection aside, the studio is clean, comfortable, and so well naturally lit. You will not regret a moment of the time you spend at this gem of a studio, nestled discretely between buildings on 2nd and 57th. I am so grateful to Joanna! Thank you for helping me find the perfect dress!
Joanna and her team of girls over there are all amazing! From the moment my appointment started to the second I found my dream dress they were so kind and helpful. Their attention to how you feel in the dress and suggestions were awesome. They really make your moment to find your dress special. I am forever grateful for their help and can't wait to share my wedding day picture with them. If you are looking for a relaxed and one on one attention dress experience Forever Amour Bridal Boutique is the place to go. They are 100% genuine and attentive.
I had an amazing experience dress shopping at Forever Amour!! Joanna is so wonderful to talk to and really cares about her customers. She makes you feel like family! At the start of my appointment, Joanna took the time to really get to know me and what I was looking for. She had so much patience and picked out dresses that complimented my body type. I felt completely at ease and relaxed the entire time I was dress shopping (which wasn't something I felt when shopping at other salons). I ended up leaving with my dream dress for an incredible price! I really can't say enough wonderful things about this salon and HIGHLY recommend you make an appointment here!! It will be your last stop!
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 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.
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 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
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 trying on several samples, I decided to try on a few of designer Jude Jowilson's stunning collection gowns (which are all to-die-for), and chose a gown with intricate French lace, vintage beading and fitted silhouette, plunging back, and luxurious silk - the dress of my dreams. 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!
