I have to say that Nicole made this wedding dress experience 100x better. She was so kind and patient and did an excellent job of listening to what it was that I was looking for!

Based on great reviews from friends, I chose this Lovely Bride location as my only appointment for wedding dress shopping. From the online portal, great email communication/ response time, to the in person appointment experience, Lovely Bride made me feel so special as I tried on dresses for the first time.Nicole was beyond helpful and supportive as I narrowed down my options. By taking in all of my feedback and reactions from the dresses I tried on, Nicole pulled a dress that I hadn’t picked and it was beyond perfect! She was so professional, kind, and incredible knowledgeable that helped create such a great experience. Thank you, Nicole!

I have been to 7 different bridal shops between Charleston, Chicago and Philly and this one is by far the best. The facility is immaculately clean and STUNNING inside. It truly gives the vibes every bride hopes for when she goes through this special experience. But that’s honestly not even the best part. The service I received at my first a second appointment could not have been better. Nicole was sweet, warm, knowledgeable, professional and not the slightest bit pushy. She made me feel so comfortable and was understanding, if not encouraging, of me wanting to go home and think about the dresses before committing to anything. I haven’t decided on a dress yet but I would truly love to support this business. The dresses I tried on here honestly have more meaning now because they’re attached to such wonderful experiences. If you’re a bride in Charleston you MUST go to this place. I wish every bride could get this type of experience!Worth noting they offer champagne:)

Nicole was so wonderful! You can absolutely tell she has so much joy for what she does. She made my dress shopping experience the best and helped me bring my vision to life. I will recommend her and Lovely to all brides in South Carolina.

I had an amazing experience wedding dress shopping at Lovely Bride! My stylist, Mariah, was fantastic. She answered all my questions, made me feel very comfortable and even helped give me different ideas on ways to alter the dress once I get it back. She also was very accommodating to my mom and friend who came with me, as well as my friends and family who were joining the appointment virtually. It was such a fun and memorable experience and I found my dream wedding dress! I can’t wait to return next spring to pick up my dress when it comes in. Thank you Mariah & Lovely Bride!!

I can’t say enough amazing things about my Lovely Bride Charleston experience. I worked with Nicole in November 2023 and she blew me away – she listened to my vision and style and, though she pulled dresses on my wish list, she also pulled amazing dresses I hadn’t even considered. I didn’t feel any pressure to say yes, but I did anyways as I found a dress that just couldn’t be beat! (Seriously, the curtains in our bridal room opened and my mother just said “wow.’). Also great is that, though I bought in Charleston, I live in Illinois – Lovely has made the shipping process so streamlined.Thank you again, Nicole and Lovely Bride!

This was the best experience. Mariah is amazing. She feels like a friend that you’ve known your whole life the minute you meet her. I felt so confident throughout the whole process, and finally said yes to my dress. I can’t rave about this experience enough Mariah is THE BEST!!

Mariah was absolutely incredible and made my experience feel so natural, easy, and magical! I really appreciated her ability to listen to what I had in mind and wanted but also pick out dresses that I wouldn’t have chosen myself but ended up loving. She has such a warm energy and made me feel so comfortable the whole time which is what everyone dreams of while wedding dress shopping. I couldn’t recommend this experience – or Mariah’s guidance and energy – more! ✨

I had an absolutely amazing experience buying my wedding dress at Lovely Bride CHS. Nicole, my consultant, was incredibly patient and responsive, guiding me through multiple appointments until I found the perfect dress. Her expertise and warm demeanor made this entire process for me. I felt supported and never rushed, and I’m beyond grateful for her help in making me feel like the most beautiful bride. Thank you, Nicole for an unforgettable journey to finding my dream wedding dress!

Emily and Nicole are great to work with and make the whole process of trying on dresses very fun! Nicole was great about asking my feedback about what I did and didn’t like in each dress and showing me more dresses based on it

O.M.G BEST EXPERIENCE EVER! I drove almost 2 hours to come to this bridal shop because they had a designer I love as well as the fact that my venue isn’t too far away from them. As soon as I got there I felt so welcomed and was greeted with champagne! I thought I had already found the dress of my dreams until I got here and fell in love with 2 different ones! After much well needed advise and assisting from the staff I made the choice and couldn’t be happier! I highly recommend this adorable store to any future bride! I included some pictures but not of the dress I picked (just incase haha)!

Had an incredible experience at Lovely last weekend and found my DREAM dress. I went in with 0 expectations of finding my wedding dress. Nicole was so wonderful – she picked styles based on exactly what I had shown / told her I was interested in and was super patient. She was able to take what I did and didn’t like about each dress and steer me in the right direction. The appointment felt private, special and everything I could have hoped for. Highly recommend coming here to find your wedding dress – it was my one and only stop!!

Nicole was an amazing stylist!! She was so patient and encouraging and kind throughout both of my appointments. She helped me choose my perfect gown and stay confident even though dress shopping is not as easy and magical as Say Yes To The Dress makes us all think. My family ended up purchasing my dress for me elsewhere, but I can’t express enough how much I loved spending time with Nicole at Lovely Bride. This was by far my best wedding dress shopping experience and I can’t express my gratitude enough!

I had an amazing experience here! Nicole was an amazing bridal consultant, made the experience fun, seamless, and most importantly- successful! We had the whole store to ourselves and it made me feel very special, and I was able to focus on me, and my dress journey instead of seeing other brides to be also trying gowns on. I found my dress, and was honestly so happily surprised with the price too! Highly recommend

I had two friends in NYC recommend Lovely, so I made an appointment for my trip to Charleston! I brought my mom and we had our appointment with Nicole. I’m a decisive person, but still wasn’t sure if I’d find a dress right away. I felt comfortable to be myself and to be direct with Nicole. She was very prepared, engaging and even-keeled. She never pressured me to try on anything that didn’t appeal to me, and she gave great feedback/perspective as needed. Nicole respected my budget and communicated very well about price as we maneuvered through the appointment. We were very efficient, but I never felt rushed.The shop was clean and organized with great light! I was very torn between two dresses, and Nicole suggested carrying on with our day and calling her if I wanted to come back and try on the two dresses. We had lunch and I knew which dress I wanted to try on again, so she fit us in that afternoon & I bought my dress! Immediately cancelled two appointments I had that weekend elsewhere.I felt comfortable in my body, with my decisions and with my budget at Lovely with Nicole — I had a lot of fun with my mom & Nicole on top of all of it!! I HIGHLY recommend making an appointment here.

Had such a calm, comfortable and pleasant experience at Lovely! I worked with Nicole and she was amazing. I ended up finding my dress and Nicole even brought a dress back from the Atlanta store for me to try on a week later and confirm. Both my mom and I could not rave more about Nicole and the Lovely experience!

Nicole was an absolute dream to work with. The thought of wedding dress shopping was exciting but overwhelming. Nicole was not pushy at all and did the most amazing job of navigating me through all my questions and the styles I liked until I found the dress I wanted. The entire process was easy and so much fun and I cannot recommend her or Lovely Bride enough!

Nicole was the best! She made my first time experience so wonderful. She also chose dresses based on what I liked and didn’t like so perfectly! She was easy going and approachable throughout the entire process.The showroom is also beautiful and comfortable & their process was so efficient.

Nicole was an absolutely awesome stylist! I showed her a few pictures during my first visit but wasn’t completely sure what I wanted. She picked a perfect selection of dresses for me to try on and finally narrowed it down to “the one”. I would HIGHLY recommend Lovely Bride and Nicole!
13:18 12 Apr 22
My experience at Lovely Bride with Nicole was nothing short of amazing! I was originally so nervous starting the dress shopping experience but I felt welcomed and made to feel comfortable from the moment I walked into Lovely Bride. There were some particular pieces from a designer’s new collection that I was interested in trying on and Nicole personally reached out to me when they came in.I ended up being so indecisive because how can you choose between such beautiful dresses? Nicole was so gracious and helpful and made my decision so much easier. I was shopping alone and she made sure to take as many photos and videos as I needed. I am so thrilled to have purchased my dress here, I can’t wait for it to come in. I highly recommend Lovely Bride!

Lovely Bride was great to work with from the second I reached out! I fell in love with a discontinued dress and checked with all the shops throughout the US that carried the Rue De Seine dress to see if they had a sample still, and low and behold, Lovely Bride of Charleston did! Nicole was so great throughout the process, sending me pictures and videos, and working with me to get the dress within my budget. After payment the dress was shipped and received packaged lovely with a personalized name touch, all within a few days! They helped me to find dream dress and I will forever be grateful! Keep rocking, Lovely Bride Charleston!

Where do I even begin. I traveled from NY to the Charleston location for a specific gown, but also bc I had heard great things about the shop. I was completely blown away. Nicole made us feel like VIPs. She never once made me feel like I was at an appointment or on a time constraint. It felt so natural and she was beyond welcoming. This is a huge decision and Nicole did everything she could to put me at ease and never pressured me into making a decision. This was way more than a dress fitting. It became one of the most memorable parts of my wedding process. If you live out of state, I would recommend taking the trip to the Charleston shop. You will NOT be disappointed.

I had two appointments at Lovely Bride before saying YES TO THE DRESS! After my first appointment I canceled with my other bridal appointments because I had such a great experience at Lovely! Nicole was my stylist and she was fantastic!! She made me feel so comfortable and after telling her what I was looking for she pointed me in the right direction. Overall it was a great experience. I had so much fun and felt confident after walking out of my appointment. Becoming a Lovely Bride is something I will never regret!!!
