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...

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!

If I could give more than a five star review for Formally Yours, I would! I am happily engaged but had NO idea where to start when it came to wedding planning and finding the perfect dress. I am one to know what I want but I had no idea where to start when it came to a wedding... Read More dress. I brought my mother and soon to be mother-in-law and we were happily greeted by Cathy. I showed her a couple pictures of dresses I was interested in which I tried on six dresses and honesty felt like a princess in all of them. Cathy was VERY easy to work with and I walked away with the dress of my dreams within an hour of being there. I could not have pictured a more perfect experience and cannot wait to walk down the isle in the dress I purchased from Formally Yours. I cannot thank you guys enough!

I had the most amazing and memorable time shopping at Formally Yours! From the moment I walked in, I was met with so much excitement and positive energy(which really goes a long ways when your shopping for the most important dress of your life). Formally Yours was the FIFTH... Read More bridal store I went to, and as you can guess I was starting to feel discouraged and stressed. By this time I knew what type of style I wanted, but had not found a dress that had checked all the boxes. Out of all the bridal salons I had been to, this was the ONLY ONE that asked to see pictures of dresses prior to my arrival that I had liked and went and PULLED ALL THE DRESSES FOR ME! It’s hard to look through dresses on a hanger on a rack of 50+ and not feel overwhelmed. It was so heavenly to have Cathy take the lead and I really felt like a spoiled bride (which every bride should). I had the great privilege of working with the owner and she really keyed in all the specifics that I wanted and even took the time to pick out a few dresses that I was pleasantly surprised. Never once did I feel rushed or pressured to purchase anything, even after I tried on my dress three times and probably spent 20 minutes just walking around in it haha. They have a great selection of veils and belts too! I am so happy to purchase my dress with Formally Yours and will be taking my mom back to pick out her dress from there too!

As a natural planner, I LOVE being able to plan my wedding within a year and a half. I am originally from GA but recently moved to New Orleans, LA away from friends and family I had a hard and very terrible experience shopping here in NOLA. I have the greatest opportunity to... Read More visit home back in March 2017, this is where I ORIGINALLY found THE DRESS! The staff was so kind and caring like they were part of the family, something I don't usually experience in boutiques. I went back to New Orleans in attempts to find a boutique with THE DRESS, while I did find my same dress here in NOLA and it would be more convenient for fittings and such I ultimately decided to visit Formally Yours once again in early June 2017 and make the PURCHASE, thanks to my FMIL. The customer service is by far the best in both Louisianna and Georgia. Honestly, I feel so confident in the staff here that I also plan on getting my bridesmaid dresses here. Thank you to Formally Yours, you made my mother and mother in law fall in love with my dress and made this an experience I will always remember and cherish!

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...

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 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.

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.
