The service was good at Jodi's, but the dress selection was minimal. The dresses also just seemed kind of...dirty, like they had been tried on a bunch. This was the first place that I went, and I was glad I did go here first, because you can at least try on different dresses to get an idea of the style that you like, then move onto other stores that have better quality dresses.
I chose Bridals by Jodi because I had been dress shopping near home in North Carolina with certain family members, and wanted to include my sister who was living in Charleston at the time. (I also found out they carried Blush by Hailey Paige so I had a good feeling I would find my dress!)
I had a great experience with all of the girl's there while shopping and the communications up until I received my dress. They are so sweet and helpful and don't pressure you at all to buy a dress with them. I was in love with a dress in Charlotte, NC at the time by WToo (Waters) and they were around the same price point. I showed the dress to the girl's working and they admitted it was pretty, too but still didn't try to pressure me into any of the gowns at their store! I think that is great customer service.
I ended up having an emotional moment with mom and my sister when I decided on my dress and they were all so excited for me.
I called several times to ask questions in the 4 month window before my dress arrived and they were so kind and helpful each time.
Four months later I came to pick up my dress and visit my sister again and ended up picking a beautiful veil. I wanted a bridal sash from there too, but will see if it is still in the budget. The dress was in perfect condition, even though I will have to get it altered, and it came with a nice dress bag. They ensured to stuff it with tissue paper after I tried it on to help it keep it's shape.
I am so excited to wear this on 5/28/16 and I'm so impressed with my experience at Jodi Bridal.
Their new store is FANTASTIC! I called last minute on day to try on dresses just for fun and the ladies there were more than happy to accommodate me. I felt like I was the center of attention when I was trying on dresses for my big day. When I tried on the 3rd dress I had realized that I had found it! This was my dress. It was beautiful and I was in tears! I bought my dress right then and there. Since bought my dress so far in advance the ladies have been more than happy for me to come in and try on my dress "Just cause". Everyone there were so helpful with me and the girls that I brought with me. It is not time for me to alter my dress yet but I cant wait to go back!
A few years ago, I had to order a bridesmaid dress from Bridals by Jodi for a friend's wedding. When it came time to find my wedding dress, they were my first (and ended up being my only) stop. Because all of my bridesmaids live 600+ miles away, I did my dress shopping on my own, but I found THE dress in just one hour at Bridals by Jodi. Brittany was absolutely awesome - I told her what I was looking for and she pulled about 10 dresses for me to try on. It was better than having my girlfriends there because she was incredibly knowledgeable about the dresses and was honest with me about how they would look in my actual size. I got SO MANY compliments on my dress and could not be happier with how it turned out!
I loved working with the women at Bridals by Jodi. We tried on dresses at several vendors in the Charleston area, and they were by far the most knowledgeable and professional. Once we told them color, theme, and price range, they were able to find several styles for us to try and kept us from falling in love with items that were not within those parameters. I can't wait to see my bridesmaids in these beautiful styles!
I loved my experience at Bridal by Jodi!! It was so much fun picking out dresses to try on. I found my dress there and felt so encouraged the entire time!
I cannot say enough good things about my experience with Bridals by Jodi. Betsy was my main contact throughout the process and she was absolutely amazing. She made me feel so comfortable at all of my fittings! They recently moved into a beautiful new space in West Ashley, and I would highly recommend any bride trying here first. The prices are also more affordable than some other places I checked out, but I still got a designer dress that was gorgeous.
Thanks Bridals by Jodi!
Both of my daughters are getting married this year. We made an initial appointment for both girls at the same time to figure out what style each one might be looking for. We expected this to be the first of many trips. It was not. Both of my daughters found an amazing dress that day. One of them knew just what she was looking for and the other had no clue. The staff was amazing. The consultant helped Sarah find just the right dress for her. We have been to the shop many times for fittings, etc. and the staff has always been friendly, helpful and professional. They made us feel so special each time we went in. You could go elsewhere and spend much more money. We were very pleased with the quality of the dresses and the quality of service we received.
The girls at the shop are awesome! They are very laid back and professional but definitely know the shop stock well and can help you find the perfect dress. Their new location in West Ashley is perfectly charming!
This vender was amazing and very helpful. When I had a melt down about my bridesmaid dress color, Betsy at Bridal by Jodi was there to call and talk with me. She was completely understanding and wanted to make sure I did not want to reorder the dresses.
I loved the gown I purchased from Bridal by Jodi. It was beautiful, affordable, and I did not feel any pressure to buy on my first time trying on dresses at the store. The staff was overall very nice and very helpful. The only complaint I have is that I ordered the sample size I tried on in the store as it fit perfectly. When it came in, it was way too small, and their reasoning was that "someone much larger than me probably tried on the sample size so I should have ordered a size up for it to fit." Well I am not the wedding dress expert so how would I have known that? I ended up having to get several alterations that I wouldn't have needed had they just explained the sample size would fit differently than the brand new dress in the same size. Overall, I loved my dress so I can't complain, it just would have been nice to know that before paying for avoidable alterations!
I can not recommend the ladies at Bridals by Jodi enough. I especially must recommend working with Betsy, Brittany, and Lada. They made each and every visit to the shop an enjoyable one. Wedding planning and dress shopping were a very stressful time for me due to some career changes but every time I went to see these ladies I left happy. I had a difficult time picking a dress and out of every store I visited they made me feel the most sure and helped me to customize my dress to get what I had envisioned. For the quality of dress and selection that they have I felt that their prices were very reasonable. Lada did a fabulous job of making alterations and customizing my dress. I would definitely recommend shopping at Bridals by Jodi and working with these ladies if given the chance! Thank you all so much!!
Bridals by Jodi did a great job getting all of the bridesmaids fitted and helped us all find exactly what we were looking for. Our dresses were ordered more 'last minute,' but the store did a great job of rush ordering them, and everything arrived in good condition in a timely manner. Our bridesmaids came from all over the country, and they ordered to ship the dresses to each girl, no problem! It was great!
They were so patient as I tried on nearly all the dresses in the store. Each time I came back in for a fitting they made me feel so special. Betsy really understood what I was envisioning and made it happen. I highly recommend them!
Bridal by Jodi was amazing! The staff was friendly and helpful from the first call I made. They catered to me and my taste and helped me feel comfortable. I went to multiple shops in the Charleston area and this was my favorite! I recommend them to everyone! They helped me stay in. My budget and also offered a free veil with my gown purchase!
I bought my Allure bridal gown from Bridals by Jodi, and it was phenomenal. I was absolutely in love with it. The clerks at the salon were more than helpful, and pulled as many dresses as I wanted to try. And were very understanding when I did not purchase my dress on my first visit. I did not feel pressured into buying the gown; they allowed me to think on it and welcomed me back in the next day when we returned to buy my wedding dress! The only problem I did have, was that I was unsure of dress sizing, and the consultant suggested ordering a size that turned out to be very big on me. (However, this could have been an honest mistake as it as a new gown, and I was between sizes, and the first person to order it in the salon) But I definitely could have ordered a size down and likely would have been able to save a couple of hundreds of dollars on alterations had I done so. However, my dress was altered beautifully by the in-house seamstress, and it looked flawless on my wedding day. So I had no complaints. On a side note, this shop is not geared towards larger women. Almost all of their sample sizes were a size 4, which I found confusing and slightly inconvenient. I am not a large woman, and I still had trouble squeezing into some of the dresses.
