"I had such an amazing experience here! The boutique alone is so cute! Each station is themed, I was in the Disney Princess area which was perfect because I am obsessed with all things Disney and also had amazing lighting! They also had a Star Wars section which was crazy because my Fiancé and I LOVE Star Wars! I didn't even know the shop was like this and it made my experience even more amazing! The dresses were so beautiful and had a good range of different styles and most importantly had the dress I had been looking for! Amanda was so amazing and so sweet! She made me feel so special and beautiful and did fun little things that were catered to me! 100000% Recommend going here!"
"I could (and will) go on forever about Amanda, the owner of Lorien Bridal. She exuded positivity and excitement throughout the whole appointment and provided so many accessories for me to try with the GORGEOUS selection of dresses (if you want Maggie Sottero, come HERE!). She made me feel like a queen, and yet the shop is so quirky and cute that I also felt very comfortable and casual during the process. It was the perfect combination. I was still undecided on my dress leaving the appointment, but I turned to my friends and said, "This is the first shop where I actually want to spend my money". So I came in for a second appointment a few weeks later by myself, ordered my dream dress, and feel completely at peace that I gave my business to one of the kindest, hard-working people in the industry."
"Amanda was AMAZING!!!!!! I tried looking for dresses online (because I don't like trying things on) and hated everything I saw. when I googled bridal shops in my area, I stumbled across Lorien and loved how nerd-friendly, body-friendly, and budget-friendly it was. Even with Covid restrictions, Amanda made the experience feel personal and magical. The second dress I tried on was the one (though I still tried on like 8 or 10 total). I love that all the dresses aren't WHITE white, as I'm not really a traditional kind of bride. I went from dreading wearing a dress to being ecstatic about it. And I love knowing that I got my dress at a businesswoman-owned shop and not some big snobby corporate-owned warehouse. AMANDA IS MY SAVIOR."
"I had a really great experience here. Amanda was absolutely wonderful. She was respectful of my budget and most of the dresses in her shop were very reasonable. The selection was great, I easily found several dresses I wanted to try. I was the only bride shopping so I had her full attention. After listening to what I liked and didn’t like about each dress, she pulled the dress I ended up picking. It’s not what I thought I’d get, but it was the most flattering and it will be perfect for my wedding day."
"If I could leave more than 5 stars I would. Amanda was absolutely incredible. This was my very first appointment and I was so nervous. I didn’t know quite what I wanted, and I was convinced nothing would be right for me. Amanda kept it fun, casual and framed as a learning experience. She was so keen on figuring out what I liked and asked all the right questions. Her eye is incredible and was able to take dresses that felt just fine and make them WOW moments with the right accessories. As someone who identifies as a bit of a nerd, the environment of the shop was the icing on the cake — the Hobbit score made it all feel cozy and homey, and the nerdy touches kept it all feeling fun. I will add that if you don’t identify as a nerd, you still need to check out Lorien. There is something for everyone, and the dresses don’t feel like cosplay or aggressive nods to fandoms. Everything is so beautiful and feels carefully curated for an expansive but not overwhelming selection. Even though it was my first appointment, I have a feeling I will be back to say yes to the dress. Amanda, you are the best!"
"I absolutely loved my experience at Lorien! Amanda was so helpful and made sure the appointment went smoothly. It was nice that my family/friends got to help me pick dresses to try on plus Amanda did a great job of flushing out what I liked and didn’t like so that it was easier to make a decision later on. I recommend Lorien to brides who want a comfortable, intimate dress shopping experience. The store is beautifully decorated and will make everyone in your party feel right at home."
"I can't say enough wonderful things about Amanda and her salon! My appointment with her was easily one of the most fun, and I found multiple gorgeous, unique gowns all within my budget. Amanda is extremely knowledgeable about the industry, and her cheerfulness immediately put me at ease. The salon is beautifully decorated, and if you appreciate the meaning of the salon's name then you're going to adore the interior! I can't recommend Lorien enough - thank you Amanda for such a great appointment!"
"The best bridal dress shopping experience a girl could ever ask for!!!! Honestly, I was procrastinating a tad when it came to looking for my dress, but upon messaging the shop owner, Amanda, my fears/ procrastination turned into excitement! I checked out a few other places but saved Lorien for last. First off, they are only accepting one appointment at a time & cleaning after every appt., which is really comforting during these Covid times. And makes the appointment extremely personal! Lorien is a smaller shop with a well curated selection of QUALITY gowns in all different sizes, AND at affordable prices! I am not joking, when my bridesmaids and I saw the detailing on these dresses, we were DEAD! And yes- all different sizes! I didn’t actually have to lose 30 lbs before trying on dresses, because they had my size (+ more), and every dress made me feel magical ❤️ Lastly, the themed rooms? So cute! Don’t hesitate to try on some fun props too (see photos below). Definitely not your typical bridal gown shop, yet still so elegant and whimsical. I am so ecstatic to say I said “yes to the dress”, and promise you will too! “This is the way.”- The Mandalorian"
"Best wedding gown shop in LA with the best pricing. Private apts only so you have the entire store to yourself and crew. Amanda is incredibly helpful with a massive range of gowns and accessories and makes it so much fun with the nerdy touch. GO HERE IF YOU NEED A GOWN!"
