All Around Amazing!Reviewed on 1/23/2015 Sarah A
Lovella was the 2nd and last place I visited to get my dress. They absolutely know what they are doing and only carry the best gowns in all price ranges. They also make sure they stick to your style and budget that you tell them when you go in. Angie was the one to help me find my dress (May 2014) and she was the absolute best. She definitely got me to get out of my comfort zone. I went in there wanting an A-line gown to hide my "big butt" but I left out of there with a mermaid gown. It was the best decision and I have pictures to prove it. I did end up going over my budget but only because Angie asked me if I had some wiggle room first. Also a good decision because the gown was so gorgeous and it was only a little over my budget. They also spent 2 hours on me when a typical appointment is 1 hour. I do want to mention something that Angie said to me that I won't forget. She said "not everyone is going to have that moment where they say THIS IS THE DRESS and start getting emotional, some people just have to go with their gut" I was definitely one of those. I didn't leave there super excited (it didn't help that I had just gotten into a fight with my fiance on the phone about what I just spent - whatever it was my money) but I knew I had a dress that looked THE BEST on me and was excellent quality. As I went into fitting appointments I loved the dress even more and on the wedding day I felt AMAZING.
Amazing gowns at amazing prices!Reviewed on 10/15/2014 Dianne A
My wife and I found our wedding dresses at Lovella Bridal and we couldn't be happier! Angie was fantastic at knowing what would work for us because my wife and I had a hard time choosing something for ourselves and when we told her what our personal preferences are, she was able to find 2 dresses that are not only perfect for us, but they also compliment each other greatly! The boutique itself is beautiful and the best we've seen, the rest of the staff are genuinely friendly and accommodating. They were also nice enough to let us take a photo of our dresses for us to evaluate and show to our family which were out of town, something that some places don't allow you to do. Again, I can't stress how smooth sailing the whole experience was from picking a dress to ordering, paying, and alterations. Angie was there to help us through out the whole duration. And did I mention that their prices are great?? If you're a bride and you're looking for your dream wedding dress, don't waste your time with other places and go over to Lovella Bridal! You won't be disappointed! Thanks again Lovella Bridal and most of all thanks Angie!!!
Say Yes to the Dress!Reviewed on 11/24/2013 Megan
I absolutely love Lovella bridal and Nayri and cannot thank them enough for helping me find my dream dress! This was the second salon of four that I went to look at dresses at. My initial visit was in early February and my mom, sister and cousin were scheduled to go with me. Unfortunately, my mom and sister got the flu. Anyways, my cousin and I went to look and were impressed from the start. Walking into the store, we could tell they had some really beautiful dresses! They have all different styles, shapes, fabrics. I was so lucky to work with Nayri! My first store was so pushy and unhelpful. I explained my idea of what I wanted and Nayri pulled dresses and let my cousin and me pick some out as well. I tried on about 10 dresses with no pressure. I found the one here and definitely knew it! It is a Martina Liana and was Nayri's pick that she said it was the first dress that came to mind when I had explained what I liked. This was a designer I hadn't even considered and boy am I glad she thought of this dress because it was more beautiful than any lace gown I had a pictures of! I also appreciate that she stayed within my stated budget and did not try to push slightly over like many of the other bridal salons I visited. She was very understanding when I said I did not want to buy without bringing my mom and sister back. She followed up with me and was very responsive about setting up my follow up appointment. I came my second time with my mom, sister and cousin. Instead of just putting me in the one, she understood my mom and sister felt they missed out and was so kind to let them pick out some dresses for me to try on. I was nervous they would like something else but she kept reassuring me that they would love my dress and we saved the best for last. Both my mom and sister burst into tears and love it just as much as I do! I went through my fittings and alterations and Lovella was amazing! The whole team is great. My consultant Nayri was at bridal fashion week and Jasmine and Christina helped me this time and both were wonderful. I have relocated to San Jose since I bought my dress so they worked with me in finishing my alterations and doing my second and third fitting in the same weekend (it was a lot of work). Everything came out perfect! I didn't make it easy since I lost 3 sizes and they did a fabulous job! My dress was seriously just perfect on my wedding day - I was so happy! Nayri and really all the team at Lovella are wonderful. They are honest about what looks good on you, stay within your budget and are understanding and supportive! This really gave me the bridal experience I was looking for without feeling overly pressured. I would highly recommend this store to any bride!
Amazing selection and friendly staff. Very affordable and choices for all budgets. However, I ordered a year in advance (Jan 2017), not that it's required, but when my delivery date rolled around in May, I didn't hear from anyone. I called and they provided me with an update that it would be ready in August. I wondered why it would take an additional 6-8 weeks but figured we had plenty of time. August came and they called to inform me my dress had arrived and to schedule an appointment for my first alterations. I went in mid-end August and my dress was the wrong shade of color. It sounds petty, but certain shades look better on different skin types and this was dark/tan not the blush/romantic color I had been waiting for. The staff was so supportive and recognized the designer's mistake and they were going to fix it (and they did!). They even sent the sample dress that I had tried on in January with it to make sure it was the right color & rushed/expedited the order for a new dress with the correct shading. While panicking ensued and I'm not going to lie, I bought another dress at a different bridal store in case it didn't pan it, it eventually worked out! The dress came in mid-October (6 weeks before the big day), and it was perfect - better than the sample. I was so happy!!! The wrong choice I made was to go with their alterations. While strapless dresses are supposed to be a bit snug, this was unbearable. My dress barely fit the day of and I only had final alterations two weeks before. The day of we were struggling to make it work and the person at the store told me that it would loosen over time in the evening (well it didn't). They had to rubberband the top button to make it work and I felt like a sausage in it - it wasn't the dress I remembered and loved and to this day I'm still self-conscious about how I felt that day. They didn't even have me sit down in it before tightening it. And trust me, these all seem like things you would voice to them or point out, but when you're the one in the dress and someone is assuring you that it will be fine and trying to be quick about it it's all a whirlwind! Ugh, I wish to this day that I didn't allow them to do alterations and that I didn't buy that second dress because that was an added expense that I absolutely did not plan or prepare for. Recommend this place due to selection and affordability, but do not recommend their alterations - go with someone else!
Lovella Bridal made all my wedding dress dreams come true! To start, I have to say that I specifically sought out Lovella because they were one of the few places in the LA area that carry Berta dresses, and I kind of knew that I really wanted a Berta dress. Mr first appointment was great, although I didn't buy anything. This appointment let me fine-tune what I was looking for, style-wise. Then, I made a second appointment for a Berta trunk show weekend. That was when I found my dream dress. It was like something out of a fairy-tale. Whimsical, ethereal, and drop-dead gorgeous. Nayri was so helpful after I purchased my dress. She was the one handling my fittings and she really knows her stuff. I really couldn't be happier with how my experience at Lovella went. Thank you Nayri and the rest of the Lovella staff for making my dreams come true!
Meeting with Angie at Lovella was a huge breath of fresh air after a FAILED first attempt at shopping for wedding gowns. Angie knew exactly what she was doing - she never had to measure me but somehow managed to pull 6-7 dresses right off the bat that fit perfectly and looked even better! I ended up getting my dress from another salon, but would 100% recommend Lovella salon to anyone who needs a good experience dress shopping! Gorgeous space too!
I had gone to quite a few bridal shops before dashing to Lovella Bridal on my lunch break one day. I don't recall my consultant's name but she was very conscious of my time constraints and really listened to what I wanted. She pulled four dresses and the first one I tried on was the one although the others were very lovely as well. She encouraged (but did not demand) I try on the others to be sure and I was. I decided on an ivory Martina Liana ) dress (Style 803) with a long train. It came in under my $2,000 budget. I was not pressured to purchase any accessories although I did end up purchasing a veil from the salon. The alterations process was seamless (a bit pricey in my opinion, but after researching, pretty standard for bridal salons). Each consultant I came in contact with was extremely gracious. This is a beautiful salon with a great selection of dresses for pretty diverse price points.
Lovella Bridal is an overall amazing experience. The salon is beautiful and they have incredible selection. The staff is above and beyond with professionalism and patience as they help you find the right dress that fits your individual style. I also highly recommend doing alterations in house, their team is amazing! The seamstresses they have are some of the best I have ever worked with. They have such a perfectionist eye that works to make your dress absolutely perfect.
I very much love this location, their service and friendliness and atmosphere. The lady who helped me pick out my dress was very friendly and worked well with helping my find what I was looking for rather than just trying to sell me a dress I look good in. After going to countless places I am very glad I came across Lovella Bridal. My big downside however was how my fitting and alterations went. While the initial times shopping and purchasing went very well, I didn't feel nearly as catered to during the fittings, and after the first alteration, a couple of the thing that were discussed had not been done or were a bit sloppy. Because I had not lost weight and only had minor fixes, I expected my dress to be ready that day but it wasn't, I am grateful they do not charge for 2nd alterations though. When I came back to get my dress after the 2nd alteration, it still wasn't perfect, one side was altered a bit smaller than the other, but I didn't have time for a 3rd go around. Either way though, the dress still fit well and was gorgeous! I kept and still do get complements on it, many saying it's the most beautiful dress they've seen. That said, I very much recommend Lovella Bridal for their quality, uniqueness beautiful options and the help you get from the ladies on the store floor. Just be on top and communicative of your alteration requests, especially for the price you pay for them.
I got my gown at their sample sale and was so happy with the selection. They have beautiful gowns for all budgets. The sample sale was organized so well I felt like I was just having a regular appointment with any bridal salon. I didn't feel rushed at all and they really helped me choose something I loved.
Amazing!! Alicia helped me find my dream dress in November and I could not have been happier with my choice. She was so patient with me and really helped me pick my dream dress. She picked up my dress without me knowing and when I saw it I wasn't sold. But when I put it on I knew that was the one. It made me feel like a princess and I could not have been happier. I don't like around there, my sister does, but I would recommend if you're looking for a dress to go to Lovella Bridal! You won't be disappointed!
This place is where I found my dress- Thank you to the amazing staff who helped me navigate and find the most beautiful dress I could have ever chosen. I love how they will listen to you and help you pick out a dress that will accomplish your vision of how you want to feel. I think it helped me that I had a theme for my wedding, which made it so much more easier to evoke the spirit when the big day finally came. I never dreamed that it would work out so beautifully. Some things that I learned while bridal dress shopping: What I like does not necessarily mean I will look great in it. I liked mermaid, but sometimes the "foo-foo" poof at the bottom made me look even shorter than my 5'1 body. I looked disproportionate...However* this staff will help you by picking out a dress that will absolutely flatter you, and that is important when picking out the dress of your special day. I ended up with a Lazaro from 2014-2015. I had a Gatsby wedding with petals at the bottom and though it was not a classic wedding dress, it really made me feel fun, elegant, and like Daisy Buchanan in Prada. Lazaro and the girls at Lovella, you are the BEST. Thank you for it all!
I have nothing but wonderful things to say about Lovella Bridal! This was only the second dress shop I came to before I said "Yes to the Dress". This is the total 'bridal experience' that I wanted! Everyone who works there is so helpful, accommodating and knowledgeable to what YOU want and helped me find my perfect wedding dress. After I said "Yes" to my dress, they brought us out glasses of champagne for myself, my mom, my mom's friend and two of my bridesmaids. It was such a fun experience and a memory I will never forget! Although they do have a lot of dresses that are pretty pricey (ranging from 8-10k), they also have GORGEOUS dresses that are more affordable if you don't have a budget that high (I definitely didn't). I found the dress of my dreams for under $2,500! Since I'm tall, luckily I didn't need too many alterations, which could get costly. When all was said and done, my alterations were under $300, which I was very happy with. They couldn't have done a more perfect job with my alterations, either! Everything about my wedding dress experience with Lovella was absolutely perfect. Every one of their staff members were so kind from day one, and I will forever be grateful for that. Definitely go to Lovella Bridal to get the bridal experience and wedding dress of your dreams!
I had the BEST experience with Christina here. My Mom flew to LA for a 5 day wedding gown hunt after I had already scoured the city for "the perfect gown". I went to Lovella once and found a couple that could work, you know, in case I didn't run across "The One". Let me just tell you, for me, wedding gown searching was the worst part of the whole planning process. I'm not much of a shopper to begin with but then with all the pressure...whew! I took my Mom back to Lovella for the second time, to show her the "Just In Case" dresses. Christina helped me this time. I was looking around again, as it was my Mom's last day in town, when she brought out a dress that had just arrived. It was very similar to one I had tried on at a different salon, but it was more elegant (aka, less sequins and flashy - sorry if you like that sort of thing, I wear gym clothes all day every day). When I tried on the New Arrival, it was... great. Not perfect, but great. She pinned and pulled and I told her what I was hoping for. By the time I left, she had created THE DRESS. We took things in and let them out and moved them around... I swear the wonderful seamstress there is a wizard. I ended up going back for 2 more alterations where they adjusting things I would never imagine adjusting. The final fitting we had to make a few minor changes and while I ate tacos across the street (the week of my wedding haha) they adjusted, steamed and packed up my gown. Pure perfection.
Lovella provided our dress for the wedding, and it turned out amazing! They didn't remember my name no matter how many times I came back which was a little disappointing, and despite having it on file, they didn't remind me to order my veil. At the beginning of the process, they said not to worry about the veil since they would remind me later on. Since they didn't, and said it wouldn't come in before the wedding, we were forced to buy a sample veil which had been there for some time, and at full price no less! It was hardly ideal, but it did the job. Overall the experience here wasn't so bad, but just make sure you triple check everything with them so it doesn't hit you in the end.
Lovella and staff are the most amazing and genuine people! Josefina was my wonderful, attentive and knowledgable consultant who was able to listen to my washy and vague descriptions of what I wanted and deliver absolutely beautiful options with every dress she pulled. She went above and beyond every expectation we had. She put different accessories on me to really get the look of each dress, dimmed the lights in various rooms, had me walk and record what the dress looked liked when it moved- I could go on and on. Nayri is also so warm and makes you feel like you are the most important person in the store. Their dresses are immaculate and there are so many gorgeous outfits but the superb staff knows how to tailor the appointment exactly to you so it doesn't feel overwhelming. Josefina even made suggestions on how we could customize the dress in order to make the dress even more perfect based off of what I had originally mentioned i wanted. I absolutely love the Lovella ladies. This is the only bridal salon you need to go to!
Dare to Dream at Lovella Bridal!Reviewed on 10/18/2015 Genevieve E
Lovella Bridal is your one stop shop for a wedding dress. I had only gone to 2 other bridal boutiques before I quickly found my dress at Lovella. Their boutique and show room is dizzying with a wide range of dresses that all dazzle and sparkle. When I first walked in I was worried that there was no chance I would find my dress there when I saw the price tags on some of their dresses. I didn't want to spend more than $2,000 on a dress that I would wear once. But my consultant knew exactly where to look and even made recommendations of dresses that I never thought I would consider until she found the perfect dress for me within my budget.
Love Lovella!Reviewed on 8/18/2015 Jessica B
My wedding coordinator purchased her dress from Lovella. She recommended the bridal salon and they were amazing. I spoke with Angie for 10 minutes and she pulled beautiful gowns for me. The first gown I tried on I purchased. She is a professional and is amazing!
I LOVE MY DRESSReviewed on 8/30/2013 Tiffany C
Lovella was the perfect place to find a beautiful wedding dress. I went in with a picture of what I was looking for. Nayri pulled about 6 dresses that were similar to the picture. The second dress I tried on was THE DRESS! Nayri was so sweet and easy to work with. She was not pushy and knew what my budget was and helped me stay within it. They had the most beautiful dresses that I referred a friend there and she found her dress there as well.
Lovella Bridal made finding my dress easy!Reviewed on 7/30/2013 Amanda V
I had a great experience at Lovella. It was the second bridal shop I went to looking for my wedding dress. I came with a bunch of pictures I had printed out of what I was looking for, and the consultant immediately pulled a handful of dresses she thought I'd like. She did a great job- I did end up at least liking most of the dresses, and she found the one I ended up buying. I hadn't been able to find a lace fit and flare dress with cap sleeves that looked right on me, and I had figured I was going to end up wearing a strapless dress much to my disappointment. So when she pulled my dress and it had everything I wanted and looked perfect on me, I was ecstatic. She also helped me accessorize with a beautiful belt because I didn't like the one the dress came with. I got 15% off for buying the dress on my first visit which was nice. I never felt pressured and she was patient and helpful. She gave me advice on the shapes of dresses that worked and didn't work on my body, and she stayed within my budget. They called me as soon as it arrived and helped me decide how best to get it across the country for my wedding. They also didn't pressure me to use their seamstress. All around I had a great, easy experience here.
Dream ExperienceReviewed on 3/06/2013 Rachel W
I first went to the Verdugo location and tried on some AMAZING dresses, but for the style I really wanted they sent me to the other location in Glendale for Ines Di Santo gowns. The day I happened to go was a trunk show and Ines was there. I tried on a few dresses and I came upon one that I liked but wanted a few things modified. Ines listened to what I wanted and made a sketch of a custom dress for me. The dress was out of this world and the customer service at this bridal salon is the best! I ended up getting my Maria Elena jewelry from the shop as well. I was nervous about the alterations, but I could not beleive how well the seamstress did and got it perfect the first time around.
Great ServiceReviewed on 11/07/2012 Naza H
This little boutigue has incredible dresses and wonderful service. I love the area it's located in. Very cute all around. The only complaint I can possibly have is that the alteration was extremely pricey. Unexpectedly pricey! But they did an amazing job with my dress. Cant complain there.
One Happy Bride!Reviewed on 9/12/2012 Melissa V
I live in San Diego and decided to search for my dress in LA. I set up about 4 different appointments one Saturday and began my search for the perfect dress!! My first stop was Lovella Bridal. I had the privilege of working with Angie. Once you meet her you will understand what I mean...Angie has the ability to read thoughts that haven't even entered you mind. She will somehow decode your indecisive mind and the result will be a plethora of beautiful dresses! There were some dresses I would have never looked at and in her confident voice she'd say, " Just give it a try, you'll be surprised" and seconds later I was in love:) After Lovella I visited the other appointments I had already set up and at that point I appreciated the service Angie provided a thousand times more. I guess I assumed that this level of intuition and patience was a must in the wedding industry. I quickly realized this was not the case and in fact, most places were quite the opposite, helping 2-3 people at a time, not listening to what you were saying and what you weren't saying! They quickly grew frustrated (Brides take time to make up their mind :! ) It was a waste of time to look elsewhere but it truly made me appreciate Lovella Bridal. A few weeks before my wedding I called in a panic because I couldn't find shoes to accommodate the length of my dress. Nayri immediately offered to search online for me and also mailed out a swatch of my lace/satin so that I can ensure the dress matched the shoes. She was just as helpful as Angie, and in the same way, immediately calmed me down . Buying a wedding dress is one of the most important decisions when planning your wedding. Regardless of your style, uncertainty, or any other requirements, Lovella bridal will ensure you find the perfect dress, stress-free!
Love Lovella Bridal <3Reviewed on 9/11/2012 Linda G
I enjoyed every step during my planning process with Lovella Bridal... from buying my dress to alterations to picking up my dress. They made the process so wonderful for me that when my dress was ready I was almost sad to not have a reason to come back to the salon and see them again. They are extremely patient and helpful. They have the most gorgeous, hand picked gowns in their salon with every beautiful sash and veil to match. Their team is also very talented and they know exactly how to complete your dream wedding look. My dress was made my Edgardo Bonilla and it was absolutely stunning. He puts such care into his gowns it's amazing! I received many compliments on my wedding day! Thank you Lovella Bridal and Edgardo Bonilla!
Great experienceReviewed on 8/04/2012 renee r
Had such a great experience at this wedding dress store. I had gone to a few others and all the workers were just cold and didn't seem interested in my business. Everyone at Lovella is nice and helpful. Had a really positive experience there and felt as though I was a valued customer there.
