The Staff at Formally Yours was AMAZING! They were very patient with me and my indecisiveness and made me feel comfortable and beautiful ultimately leading to me saying YES to my perfect dress! I cannot say enough good things about Scarlett and Cathy made me feel like family... Read More and made sure it was MY dress not what others wanted me in. i also got my bridesmaid dresses from Formally Yours and they gave all my girls a discount since I purchased my dress there. Some of those dresses did seems as though the sizes were off when they came in, but we fine after alterations. Their alterations lady is AMAZING and will make you feel even more comfortable and beautiful. i did miss they days when alterations did not exceed a certain amount but she was very much worth every penny!

Best dress shopping experience by far!

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... Read More 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!

Cathy and Kaitlyn were amazing. They helped me find the perfect dress! Each time I said what I liked or disliked a dress, they brought out dresses closer and closer to what I wanted.

Had a terrible experience at my appointment before going to Formally Yours. I was feeling a little discouraged and worried I wouldn't find my dress. From the moment I walked in I felt welcomed and like I was in the right place. They asked for my budget and what I liked. Then my... Read More stylist, Scarlett, immediately went to work. She had a dressing room waiting with dresses exactly as I described. As I tried on she asked things I liked and didn't like and really helped me narrow it down to the style I liked. I am, admittedly, a difficult person when it comes to shopping (I am so indecisive). She was so patient with me and SOO helpful. I ended up getting my dress that day AND under budget. 10/10 would recommend this place. They have beautiful dresses, great prices, and great service. I never once felt rushed or pushed to buy something I didn't like. Don't even bother with the "big name" shops in Atlanta, you can't get any better than this place.

My experience at Formally Yours was AMAZING! I went to several other bridal salons, and they didn't even come close to the service I experienced at Formally Yours. As soon as I walked in, I was immediately greeted by the staff and assigned to my consultant, Clemmie. She made me... Read More feel at home, and instantly started to get to know me in order to help me find my dream dress. She listened to everything I had to say, and after just a few dresses, she brought me THE ONE. It was everything I wanted, and I wouldn't have found it without her help and guidance. She and all of the other consultants have so much talent, kindness, and attention to detail. They really take the time to get to know each of their brides. No one is just another sale or just another bride. All of their customers are truly special to them. Because of the connection my consultant and I had, I even invited her to my wedding!! That just goes to show you how amazing they are! My dress matches my personality perfectly, and I can't wait to wear it down the aisle, all thanks to the ladies at Formally Yours!

I cannot say enough about my experience at Formally yours- Scarlett and Cathy are AMAZING! In addition to being so kind and attentive, they make shopping for your dream dress so easy and fun! After explaining to Scarlett what I had in mind for my dream wedding dress, she knew... Read More exactly the right dress for me. I must have pulled at least a dozen gorgeous dresses to try on-but as it turned out, the two she pulled for me ended up being my top two choices. She was so patient and kind as i tried on each dress (several of them multiple times) and really kept my best interest in mind by asking questions about how I felt in each one, never rushing me or pressuring me to make a decision. I am so happy with the dress I ended up purchasing and can't wait to wear it in just a few short months. After my experience at Formally yours, I understand why so many friends have raved about this store, their dresses, and most of all their staff! I wish every bride got to have the dress shopping experience that I did at Formally yours.

BEST BEST BEST! Formally Yours is the ONLY place in Atlanta to get all your wedding fashion. I got my wedding dress, veil, exit dress, and bridesmaids dresses all at Formally Yours. The staff feels more likes friends and are incredibly knowledgeable in all things fashion. I... Read More thought I knew what I wanted for my bridesmaids but after Clemmie and Marisa helped me choose my dream dress, my original vision wasn't quite right. Cathy and Scarlett made a few gentle and honest suggestions to help steer me to the perfect choice for my girls. Good vibes and great chemistry all the way around! Formally Yours perfectly combines high fashion and elegant charm. I am so happy with the whole experience. I felt no need to shop anywhere else because Formally Yours has such great options AND excellent customer service. The store itself is adorable, so well decorated, and welcoming. Any way you look at it, Formally Yours is quite simply THE best!

Formally Yours, Inc. is hands down AMAZING. I ordered my dress, my bridesmaids dresses, and my mother's dress from Scarlett and Cathy, and every single one of them was perfect. FYI's extensive collection of dresses meant that I had a whole world of bridal options when I first... Read More visited. Scarlett was able to pull dresses that perfectly matched what I had envisioned. I tried on almost 15 dresses, but Scarlett was patient and kind, always keeping my best interested and style in mind, despite my opinionated family. That first visit to Formally Yours was my last (for me) because I was able to find my perfect dress that day! We were also able to have my sister try on some bridesmaids dresses, and she found her dress that day, too! All of my bridesmaids were asked to choose a different style of dress, and Scarlett was also able to help make sure each dress coordinated and went well together. I knew with her expertise and genuine care for me as a bride, she would make sure everything would be perfect. FYI has a wide variety of formal wear and bridesmaid dresses, too, which made it very easy for each of my bridesmaids to find something they loved and were comfortable in. Additionally, when my mom found a beautiful dress that she loved online from Jovani (a brand that FYI carries) and couldn't find in any stores, Cathy and Scarlett were able to order the dress for my mom and make her dress dreams come true, as well! Our experience with Formally Yours could not have been better, it is very clear that the women who work here truly care about the brides they help and have had many years of experience in their craft. While many brides who come here have been coming here since their first high school homecoming dress was purchased, I was a transplant to the Atlanta area, but can see very clearly why women continue to come back here for years and years for their dream dresses! Formally Yours will make your dress dreams come true.

I can’t say enough good things about Formally Yours, and Clemmie Jordan. I am a plus size bride, and was very nervous about finding a dress that I could be happy with. Clemmie was very reassuring from the moment that I walked in with my mother and future mother-in-law. She... Read More asked for my budget, and if I had any thoughts about style. Based on my answers, she found a variety of dresses in various styles, and was incredibly helpful in helping me in and out of them. Within an hour, we hit on exactly the right dress, and she immediately found a veil and earrings that completed the look perfectly. The other women working in the store were kind and helpful as well. The staff here kept me calm (not an easy task, trust me), and made the seemingly overwhelming process of finding a wedding dress easy and fun. They also engaged with my guests, keeping the process fun for them as well. Highly recommended.

At Formally Yours, I found the dress of my dreams that was within my price budget - which is SO rare, (if not impossible)! Not only that, but the gown came in MUCH earlier than initially expected, so there was ample time for alterations. The only thing I would have done... Read More differently would be to not use their seamstress for the alterations. She did an incredible job, but was quite expensive. Depending on what you need done, I would shop around before committing to use her. However, if you do decide to go with her for alterations, you won't be disappointed... she does incredible work. It's just pricey! Overall, a very, very good experience at Formally Yours.

I loved the customer service the first time I went in. Unfortunately, I didn't find anything. I went back a few months later because I loved how helpful they were. With that being said, I ordered my dress in January for my June wedding. I hadn't heard when my dress was coming... Read More so sent an email. The email response said it should be arriving mid April. Mid April came and went without hearing anything, so I called. They said it should be arriving mid May. I call the week of mid May (Monday) to be sure everything was going as they said only to find out (Thursday) it won't even be shipped until May 30th. At this point I decided to call more frequently due to heightened concern about my dress being here and able to be altered in time for the wedding. Fortunately, my dress came in Friday, May 27 and I will pick it up from being altered May 10 (the day before we leave for the wedding).

I visited this place this past weekend. This was the first bridal salon I went to and wanted to try on dresses to get a feel for what I wanted. Who knew I would actually find my dress!!!! It's beautiful!!! My family and best friend along with myself knew instantly that it... Read More was my dress. I also got a great deal since it was off the rack and is discontinued (not sure why??). My 2 maid of honors also found their dresses here and they fit like a glove. The bridesmaids' dresses are 20% off if the bride gets her dress at the shop. So my 2 other bridesmaids will also be back. They were so nice and hospitable. I felt very special as I was the only bride trying on dresses. I highly, highly recommend this store.
