Pearl's Place is fairly easy to find, just off a major highway and open seven days a week. There selection is ginormous and their attendants are friendly and know their stuff. They have decent prices, are willing to negotiate and alterations are included in the price. However,... Read More they are always busy! Be prepared to spend the better part of your day there!

My experience with Pearls Place

I had a wonderful experience at Pearls Place each time I went. The staff welcomes you at the door with a smile! The sales person, Ruth, listened to what I wanted and pulled many beautiful gowns to try on. I ended up getting the first dress I tried! I was so excited--all the... Read More sales reps were cheering for me when I found my dress! They were so sweet, happy, and professional! My dress came in two monthes after I ordered! I met the owner this time and she was so sweet and told me how beautiful I looked in my dress! She made me feel special the way you want to feel when you get your dress! A new sales rep. helped me find my veil! She pulled all the veils I wanted to try and was very sweet! I ended up buying my veil from there as well! Pearl Place is busy (which is good) that means they are doing something right! Their prices are AWESOME, service is great, and building is clean! I saw many negative complaints on the knot about pearls place before I went--that I almost backed out of going--MY ADVICE TO YOU IS GO! Do not let anything negative that someone writes discourage you. I am SO happy I did not change my mind. The price of my gown at pearls was over 700 less than another store! Pearls is wonderful! GO, GO, GO! My hometown is 2 hours away from Pearls! Well worth it!

Finally Found It..

Michelle at Pearl's Place was such a wonderful help! She helped me find my perfect dress that I have been searching high and low for.

She accessorized it perfectly and I loved everything she suggested! Thank you so much Michelle!!

My dress from there was stunning and affordable. I popped in there without an appointment to try on dresses and had 3 girls drop what they were doing to help me. They were friendly and made my experience special. From there I found them to be somewhat difficult to deal with. I... Read More had a hard time getting someone to call me back and my dress came in late (which they gave me attitude about) and wasn't ready the day it was supposed to. They did solve the problems efficiently I just didn't like how I felt like it was my fault things weren't done on time. But sometimes people just have a bad day, so I would still recommend them because their dresses are beautiful and priced well. Just make sure you have plenty of time before your wedding!

I looked all around the state of Louisiana to find THE dress and found it here. I absolutely love my dress. The reason I am only giving 4 stars is because of how tricky it was to work with them. Here goes: 1) They guarantee free alterations but in reality it's singular...not... Read More plural. You only get one alteration, that's why it's free. 2) They ask you to setup an appointment for your alteration and fittings. There are no appointments. You have to show up the day you commit to at least 1.5hrs before they open. Someone happened to tell me about it so I didn't have any issues thanks to that, but a lot of other women did. I live 3.5hrs away from Metairie so my mom and I decided to stay the night before and show up nice and early. Thank goodness it worked out each time because I was always the 2nd one there...can't imagine how long the girl before me had been there. After the 4th person things start to fall apart pretty quickly in the shop so show up early. It's worth it! 3) You have to call a week before your wedding and ask them to steam your dress. Not sure if this is how it works everywhere but as a business professional I would think they would take the initiative on this front and be proactive about it. Because isn't that what customer service is all about? Overall, a lot of waiting but expect to find an amazing collection of dresses. It's so worth it.

We made an appointment here against the advice of numerous people. My sister is LDS and needed a modest dress. She found several dresses in the Allure Modest line and according to Allure's website, Pearl's was the only place close to us that carried that line. We made our... Read More appointment for 11:30 on a Saturday. We arrived at 11:20 and signed in. We were told to have a seat and wait. (We ended up standing since the only place to sit was where brides were trying on dresses and the seats were occupied by family members of said brides.) My sister overheard the staff mumbling that they didn't know why someone scheduled appointments between 11 -12 because they "can never get to them." We finally got a stylist at 12:15...45 minutes after our appointment was supposed to start. My sister showed her pictures of the dresses she liked and the stylist promptly told us they didn't carry that line. When we told her that Allure's Website and their own website said they carry it, she told us "We carry the Allure line, but not all of the Allure line." We should have left then, but she said she could put my sister in a couple of dresses that the modest line dresses were based on so we stayed. BIG mistake. The two dresses she pulled were no where near what she wanted. (I had the Allure website up on my phone and what the website said the modest dress was based on was NOT what this girl was showing us.) The stylist could clearly see my sister's frustration and told her "look, there just isn't a demand for modest dresses so we don't carry them." I told my sister to get dressed and we left. I felt like this stylist gave up on making a sale when she saw what my sister wanted and didn't even try to show her anything that could possibly be altered. We went to The Bridal Boutique by Maeme's and worked with Hillary. She knew exactly what my sister needed and was able to pull dresses that were VERY close to what she needed & wanted. The customer service we received from them was heads and tails above what we received at Pearl's. They even took her to their computer and pulled up the Venus Temple line and showed her dresses they could order for her. We also visited Bustle's and Bows. While they really didn't have anything close to what she wanted, the stylist still tried and was very sweet and helpful.

Pearls place has the widest selection of wedding gowns for you to try on. They are a tad bit expensive but these are designer gowns here people! What was rediculous is my dress was 4 sizes too big and had to be altered several times. Before I took my pre-bridal pictures they... Read More gown was still to big but I had no choice I had to take the gown. I asked if I could bring the gown back to be altered after I took pictures and I was assured that I could. Well I did just that and was told my dress could no longer be altered because they don't alter dresses because of weight loss?!?!?! I had a total breakdown. That wasn't it though, my mothers dress, that came in a month after they told her it would was also too big. We picked it up on Feb 2nd, my wedding was on March 18th mind you, and took it home because we had no time to get it altered. We were told that we could bring it back on the allotted days of the week to get fitted. Well we did that and one of the rude ladies said that the paper on the front of the dress said that we should have brought it back on Feb 2nd!!! That was the date we picked it up! I loved my gown it was beautiful and so was my moms. If you want a beautiful dress with a handful of attitude then this is your place. They ladies that actually finds your dress for you are great. It's just the one that is behind the desk for pick up or drop off that was horrible.

While I didn't find my wedding dress here I did shop here for my dress. Even though it was busy they treated me with respect and took their time fitting me in gowns. I would highly recommend coming during a week day rather than on a Saturday to avoid the crowds. I did come... Read More back and purchase my hair piece, a bracelet, earrings, and my first dance dress. The accessories they have were high quality and they gave me very good prices. I ended up ordering one of their evening wear gowns and getting it altered into a tango dress for our first dance. It worked perfectly and the dress arrived several weeks before the quoted delivery date.

Pearl's Place has a great selection of dresses, and I found my dress here, mostly because I had already tried it on at another salon and was ready to purchase it that day. Pearl's Place can seem very chaotic, but their employees are can be very helpful and friendly (I loved the... Read More woman I worked with). However, I had much nicer bridal experiences at the other salons I went to, and I felt like I had little to no privacy while trying on the dresses in their very small dressing rooms. I am also a little disappointed with their alterations team. I was under a tighter alterations schedule, yet would have to continually ask for things to get done that we had discussed at earlier appointments (such as getting cups sewn in- and they were more like pinned on then sewn into my gown). If you want a good selection and are ready to purchase a dress, this is a great salon, but if you want a more personalized bridal experience, go to another salon.

I was at Pearl's Place searching for my bridal gown a few times, and had good experiences each time. I did not end up getting my dress there, but that had nothing to do with my experience as it was great. Everyone was friendly and welcoming, including the scheduling process when... Read More I spoke with Jordan. The first time I went was on a Saturday, actually just to look around as I knew it would be busy. Courtney greeted me and was so kind, and I decided to wait and had a great experience with Jessica. I went back weeks later and Pearl's place was so accommodating to squeeze me in when my mom was in town, and also let me come back the next day to show the dress I loved to my friend. They were very patient with me being indecisive, and never pressured me to make a decision, only letting me know about timing to be realistic. On those other occasions I had Kim and Lisa, both very patient and made me feel comfortable. The staff at Pearl's Place take the time to help you, and understand this is a big decision. I will definitely recommend that people go to Pearl's Place, and plan to return for some accessory shopping.

Unfortunately my experience at Pearls place was not as pleasant as my other vendors. I decided to purchase my bridesmaids gown from them. The gowns came in on time however lot of delays with the seamstress cause myself and bridesmaids to be stressed. The staff never took... Read More ownership for their mistakes. For ex. My out of town bridesmaid came to get alterations and dress got lost and was never altered. Of course they never apologized. For her 2nd alteration, we asked questions to the staff and instead of them addressing the concerns we had, they called a male worker to stand and stare at us while we waited for them to find the gown again. The seamstress is by far the rudest I have ever come across. She is very abrupt and rushed 3 of my bridesmaids to take gown that were not altered properly. One bridesmaids got so frustrated with her attitude she took her dress home and got it fixed by another seamstress. They definitely don't go the extra mile. I will never recommend them to a single soul! This was by far my worst and most stressful vendor. Sharanie

Pearl's Place is the only bridal shop I visited, and I ended up buying a gown on my first visit. Although, the dressing rooms are far too small, and it's mass chaos on a Saturday, I left feeling satisfied and happy with my purchase. I decided because of my easy experience... Read More finding my wedding gown, that I would go ahead and choose my bridesmaid dresses from there, too. This experience was exceptionally poorer than when I went to choose my gown. We barely got any attention, but I did end up choosing a dress for my girls at Pearl's Place. A word to those who have bridesmaids that live out of town: They advertise "Free Alterations." Alterations are not exactly free - they are rolled into the price. Most of my bridal party lives out of state, so they gave us a small percentage discount on the dresses since they wouldn't be having them altered there. That's the only positive out come of that experience. Fast forward to today - my fitting for my gown: I left in tears! Again, the dressing rooms are far too small! My dress is voluminous and the fabric is delicate. I'm not a big girl, but because of the small dressing rooms, I was basically in fear of ripping the thing while putting it on in such constricted space. Additionally, the dress they ordered for me was probably a size too big. Because of the volume of the skirt and where it falls on my waist, it makes me look about 30 lbs heavier than I am. I am extremely disappointed; this is not at all how I imagined myself on my wedding day. The seamstress just kept repeating to me that there was nothing she could do about it, because of the way the dress was constructed. I will see how it ends up, but I'll probably have to shell out additional money to take it to a more skilled seamstress. I spent $2000 and am not at all happy with the way the dress looks or the customer service. No one seemed to care that I was upset. I was given a very much "deal with it" attitude. I would never recommend Pearl's Place. And if you do go, do not go on a Saturday!

They ended up calling the first lady in line and then called a lady next that was behind all 5 of my girls.

I was super hesitant to travel to Pearl's from AL after reading the reviews, but they were one of the only places in the area to carry the dress that I fell in love with online. I did not have an appointment and arrived early Saturday morning right before they opened. I was... Read More surprised to see a line outside, but my fears were quickly erased as most of the women in line were there for bridesmaids dresses, alterations, etc. I was immediately taken into the bridal department and greeted by Kim and another consultant whose name I can't remember. Kim worked with me and throughout my time there so many other consultants stopped by to provide their input that I had found THE dress! I have been to many shops and felt really sad about not having the so-called "bridal moment" but I definitely had it here. They even dimmed the lights to show me what it would like at the reception. I didn't feel like they were being pushy or hyping me up to make me feel like I looked better than I did or anything (I had friends & my mom there on FaceTime and they agreed it was the best dress I've tried on from the 5 salons I've visited thus far). I kept trying on dresses even though I knew I had found the one and Kim was extremely patient and waited to see what I thought before providing her opinion. Also, I tend to research online to find the prices of the dresses before I go in & I know for a fact she quoted me the retail price of the gown, with no taxes and free alterations. HOWEVER, because I will be moving to the Midwest shortly, I decided not to purchase the gown because of the reviews about brides who purchase gowns from out of state--I really wish I could've chanced it, because Kim (& the other ladies were so amazing) but I was nervous about the negative possibilities.
