I will never understand why people who work retail will let their customers walk in without being greeted, or even acknowledged. I have to say, I am disgusted with this companies practices. They call themselves "affordable", but if you

Well, first off I want to say that I came here on referral. The staff was sooo awesome. I went without an appointment and it seemed like their phone never stopped ringing. Still,they made me first priority as well as the other brides.

I am one of those people that only typically posts negative reviews, but I wanted to go out of my way to make sure there are some positive comments posted about this bridal shop!!! This store has an amazing staff and customer service! It is also very clean and organized. They have a laid back, no pressure sales staff, which is great for people like me who don't like snobby sales consultants! I was really shocked to read some of the negative reviews on here, because after visiting this store, I just think they are ridiculous and fabricated! This store also has very good prices, and they have a huge selection of both bridal and bridesmaid gowns. I will definitely recommend this store to all of my friends, and I encourage people to post some positive comments!

I would have to agree with saradara that posted below, that this store was excellent, even though they were slammed busy when we came in. I tried on millions of wedding gowns, and the girls kept pulling more until I found the perfect

First of all I DID buy my dress here!

I thought this store had a large selection, things were organized and very calm inside the store. While we were there I saw 4 employees and 2 other brides, so they were busy, but we still received great service.

After speaking with the manager she told us how the dresses were arranged and asked us to go look and pick out 6-8 of our favorites to begin with and a consultant would be by shortly to help. Once we dove in and started pulling dresses we could barely take one off the rack before our consultant (Irene) was there to take it to the fitting room. Once we picked out the dresses and starting trying on they were very flexible, they let my MOH help me with dressing as needed, and they allowed us to take pictures of our favorites. While i was trying on my initial picks my aunt was out pulling even MORE dresses to try on, and not once did the staff act like this was a problem. In fact after I had tried on all of my choices I ended up purchasing the dress my Aunt pulled! They had a large selection of veils and accessories on hand to help you get the look you wanted.

This was a very low pressure environment, calm and friendly (both the employees and other brides) We actually left to go to another appointment and they didn't act rude or hurt or treat us any less warmly.

All in all my experience here was wonderful, much better than I received at Demetrios or Bride Beautiful. I have noticed that people are commenting on the consultants lack of professionalism and I have to agree. However, I feel that some of the "professionalism" that is expected of bridal consultants is just them being FAKE, when weddings are your job you can't possibly be so excited about every single one, not so much that you just gush over the bride to be and are as giddy as her best friend. Personally I'm skeptical of consultants who kiss up too much. Irene was quiet, but pleasant and nice and she got the job done in an effective and unobtrusive way.

I am very confident about the dress I ordered, i was measured 2 times, by 2 individuals and then they pulled out the designers sizing guide to be sure we got everything right.

I feel like this boutique had lovely products and staff and is well worth a visit if you are on a budget.

We were greeted by the staff but the owner approached us as if we were just playing around and not there for a real reason. Then when I told the owner what I was doing I didn't get a great facial expression which obviously made me want to walk out the door. I dont want to give this owner my business if she doesn't want my business. It's sad that I can't refer any of my brides to support local business. I will just take my brides to the real professionals in Atlanta. You might be afforable but your non-verbal skills are priceless.

First of all I'd like to say - everyone is entitled to their OWN opinion about Affordable Bridal.
http://local.yahoo.com/info-13760947-affordable-bridal-buford?tab=reviews#reviews

My experiences at their store had always been great. I went to the shop many times in my 9 months of planning and each time was happy. If you are the type of person that needs someone to follow you around and treat you like a princess, I would say to drop in during the week because these girls are very busy on the weekends. In my opinion they work their butts off all through the week, and even harder on the weekend!.
One time I came in on a quiet weekday and the owner didn't seem to be having a good day, she wasn't as happy as she normally is, so I asked one of her daughters if she is okay. (it's a family business). Her daughter said that her father had died a few weeks before and it has just been a really hard couple of months because it is impossible for them to close the shop down for even a week or 2 to stay with their family up north and visit, because there are multiple weddings each weekend. They just can't do it. Now, I am a human being and I have a heart, so I UNDERSTOOD what it meant to have a bad day, and yes, maybe not have 110% excellent service one time. Some customers do not care about what the girls and mother went through.
It really stinks when I see bad reviews about them because they really ARE great people and they DO try their best to make their customers happy.
Everyone has a bad day from time to time.. And sometimes you just happen to be there on that persons bad day. Every customer will have a different experience at this store, the same way you have good/bad days out at the mall or hair salon or nail salon or dmv. Life is frustrating at times, and so you automatically judge it instead of giving it the benefit of the doubt. Nothing in life is perfect and nothing comes free.!! <-- Please remember that folks. Affordable Bridal FTW!!! (for the win)!

Ps. On another review site A.B.I. was listed at 4.5 out of 5 stars with 16 reviews.! Great reviews! http://www.weddingwire.com/reviews/affordable-bridal-buford/571b9f75a03b27d7.html

Have gone in the store twice. Once we looking for a bridesmaid dress and were ignored, and the second time for a wedding gown and were treated just as warmly-NOT even an hello. Turned around and left both times. Shop elsewhere.

I love this store and the staff. I bought a beautiful dress at a great price, and out of all the places I went they were the most patient and helpful. The staff was great and pulled so many dresses for me. I kept going back and forth and it didn't seem to bother them a bit . Also, I had 3 people recommend them to me and I am so glad I went.

I will agree with Ruth G. that they do have affordable prices, however, they do not go the EXTRA MILE. Due to unfortunate circumstances our bridesmaids dresses needed to be canceled. The order had not been placed yet, but the shop refused to refund me (the bridesmaid) my money. They make you put 75% down on your dress, so I lost over $100 in this time of economic crisis. Unless you are 100% sure about your decision do not even think about placing an order. They are not helpful nor would they make an effort to recover the lost money when all they had done was take measurements. Not a type of business I would like to put my money into. Now, if you want a place that will be helpful, go the extra mile and has great prices check out Formally Yours in Lilburn, Ga! WOW! What a difference!

This shop not only offers incredible selection but also exceptional prices. They also will special order dresses for you. I was able to get the same dress at this shop for several hundred below other shops. They are not pushy they are extremely helpful. Also the seamtress Dora is excellent she does a top quality job at very reasonable prices. They will go the extra mile.
