Formally Yours is the first store I ever shopped at for my wedding dress. I liked a dress that was over $1,000 and there was NO WAY we could afford it at full price. Then Cathy, the owner, told us that if we paid in full and purchased it that day we would get 15% off the dress. I asked if I could look at other stores and come back and still get the 15% off because this was the first store I had looked at...and she flat out said NO! Therefore I was forced to buy the dress because if I left the store I would never be able to come back and afford it. So, I purchased the dress. When it came in I went to pick it up and they treated me as if they had no idea who I was. No one even helped me try it on. It was all wrinkled and looked like it had been shoved somewhere tight for storage. When we went to leave with the dress they wouldn't even give us a bag to carry it in...they wanted us to buy a bag after spending $1,000 on a dress! We ended up putting my dress into a David's Bridal dress bag that my matron of honor had brought with us (just in case) and leaving. No one spoke a word when we left, not even a "thank you". My dress continued to become a nightmare. I went else where for alterations due to the awful service at Formally Yours and have now had it pointed out that they didn't order me extra length and now my dress is TOO SHORT! I have to wear flat shoes to make it work! I have complaints about bridesmaid dresses too but unfortunately there is a 250 word limit to this review.

I enjoyed looking at the dresses here but felt like I wasn't getting a "straight" answer. I received different information about pricing the two times I was there and never was told about the 20% discount for buying on your first visit that I heard about from other brides.

This place is just awful! People there are only there for your money. Be willing to spend if you would like help. They do not give you the correct size so make sure you get your mesurements else where! They get their money through alterations. BEWARE!

Formally Yours is a wonderful place to find dresses. Although, I didn't find my bridal gown there, I did find the bridesmaids dresses. They ahve a wonderful selection and the staff is extremely helpful. I learned of Formally Yours after three separate friends used them for bridal gowns. Great selection and good prices.

I had found my dress at this over priced bridal store called Bride Beautiful. I wanted this dress so much until I saw the price tag. Formally Yours was $500.00 less for the exact same dress!!! I bought it and everything turned out great. The dress came in on time and the alterations were done in 1 week and also the cost of the alterations were less than what I thought that they would be! The only problem that I had was that they mis quoted and also mis wrote the wrong price on these shoes that were beautiful. They wouldn't honor their mistake and that really upset me so I tried to find the shoes for less somewhere else but unfortunatly I was unable to, so I went ahead and purchased the shoes from them...you can't win them all. I would definatly recommend Formally Yours to others.
