Not Yvonne's dresses, but still beautiful – The other reviewer is correct. All of Yvonne's wedding dresses come from Forever Yours Bridal or Jasmine, and she replaces the label with her own. She has a great selection, free alterations, and all dresses are under $2,000. However, all the dresses are considerably marked up from the original label's price. Buy with caution, but the buy might still be worth it if you're aware of the full situation.
Love Your Fragances – I have been wearing your fragrance since the mid 80's I have only two perfumes I wear. This one I wear during the winter months and the other which also comes from a true southern belle out of Jackson Ms are the only two perfume's I ever wear and never get tired of giving out the name of it and how to purchase it....Your boutique is awesome and your staff is so friendly...Looking frwd to getting a chance for a trip bk down to NO
Really good dress selection – Today, I purchased a long white gown at Yvonne's. It was wedding style and considerably cheaper than David's Bridal and even Dillards.
When I walked in, there was this smell that just consumed me. It was old fashion perfume and there was SO much of it. After a while I got used to it, but I felt the need to run outside for fresh air for about 10 minutes beforehand.
The place wasn't well done. Generally shabby, but it was homey all at the same time. My attention was pretty much immediately taken away from that when I caught site of the dress selection they had.
There were tons of dresses! And not just dresses. They had purses, underwear (naughty and nice), gloves, jewelry and a bit more. I felt like a kid in a candy shop.
I was immediately helped and the woman was so ridiculously nice and helpful. She knew what I needed and she led me straight to the dress selection that fit my school requirements and price range. I had 5 dresses to try on.
I loved the very first one I tried on. The woman suggested I try a couple more on just in case, and she zipped me up and down throughout the entire thing, which was EXTREMELY helpful.
I ended up buying gloves also because surprisingly enough, they had them! I was even told some hairstyles that would go good with my dress.
The entire purchase was about 300 dollars. Not half bad I'd say.
This is not a place where you'll have one of a kind dresses. They seem to be stock dresses that have different price tags. So, if you're looking for that one of a kind dress, it isn't here. Maybe a three of a kind dress or something around there.
But I was really happy with the turnout. I would strongly suggest checking it out at the very least for ANY occasion that would require a dress.
Amazing Detail and Service!! – I loved the experience of selecting, purchasing and having my wedding dress altered at this amazing boutique. Top notch service and handmade details for my veil were so gorgeous. I felt like a princess throughout the whole process and I looked amazing thanks to Yvonne LaFleur!
BUYERS BEWARE!! YVONNE LAFLEUR SCAMMED ME!! FRAUD!! – At first, I thought my experience at Yvonne LaFleur's was beyond wonderful. I found the dress of my dreams for a reasonable price and her staff treated us like royalty. Yvonne LaFleur told my party and I that she designed my dress herself. I was so excited that I had purchased an Yvonne LaFleur designed wedding gown for my wedding. Well, one week later, while searching for bridesmaids dresses online, I accidentally came across a picture of my wedding gown made by another designer. The price was nearly $350 cheaper. I called the designer to find out what was going on. I discovered that Yvonne LaFleur purchases a large number of gowns from this wholesaler. She had removed their label and replaced it with an Yvonne LaFleur label. When I called Yvonne to question her she tried to change the subject by asking me if I am related to an old friend of hers. She proceeded to tell me the story of how they were friends in the 1960s. When I ignored her efforts to divert from the situation, she said she would have to call me back...which she did not do. I drove to the boutique to speak to her in person. She did NOT deny what she did. She simply kept replying "this entire store is an Yvonne LaFleur collection." She clearly showed how guilty and wrong she was. She refused to give me a refund for the dress. She said when the dress comes in we can discuss the situation again. The dress is not scheduled to come in until three months before my wedding, which will not be enough time for me to find another wedding gown. She misrepresented herself and lied to me. Horrible horrible business ethics.
I WARN EVERYONE! DO NOT BUY FROM YVONNE LAFLEUR. GO INTO HER BOUTIQUE AND FIND A GOWN, THEN GO LOOK FOR IT ONLINE. YOU WILL FIND IT FOR A MUCH BETTER PRICE AND BY THE ORIGINAL DESIGNER, NOT SOMEONE WHO CLAIMS THEY DESIGNED IT.
Very high end service. As good as the best boutiques in Manhatten. – Beautiful store and wonderful service. My wedding was in Garden City New York and I heard about Yvonne's store and her ONE OF A KIND wedding dresses. I did not want a reproduction of someone elses dress. She took care of me herself and the dres was fitted the same day by a professional seamstress. I had it in 4 weeks. I also bought my brides maid dresses from there. Different anges and sizes and she was able to accomadate all of them beautifully. If you are picky and want very high end service Yvonne is the person to see. Thank you for making my wedding day so special.
Beautiful Dresses, Great service – The dresses in Yvonne Lafleur are just beautiful, and I love the way they hang from the ceiling. I thought the dresses would be way out of my price range, but they were actually much more reasonable than other dress shops in the city. The staff was very professional and upbeat. After I found my perfect dress, they even helped me celebrate with a glass of champagne. It was a great experience. They made the experience for my mother and I wonderful.
GREAT Personal Service – I was not expecting to find the Wedding Dress of my dreams but that is exactly what I found at Yvonne Le Fleur. When I walked into the store with my mother, Mary Jane greeted us and said to look around the store, she would be right with us after assisting another bride to be. My mother and I began to look around and we found several dresses that were very nice. I was expecting to tell the attendant what dress I wanted to try on, go into a dressing room and try on dresses as usual. Mary Jane took it a step further. She actually suggested dresses to try on. The very first dress I tried on was simply gorgeous and soooo me. Beautiful dress, alencon lace with small beading over champagne satin. The dress was beautiful and fit me almost perfectly. Mary Jane took is another step further, she looked at my figure and added wonderful touches that accentuated my figure. I truly felt like a bride for the first time, romantic and timeless. Unfortuneatly, I could not afford the dress, but I knew the dress I wanted and was on a mission to find one I could afford. I will never forget the assistance I received and I highly recommend the shop, if you are looking for something special.
Rude Rude Rude – The customer service was awful. We made an appointment to try on wedding dresses and when we showed up we were basically ignored. We went to the back room where Yvonne was helping another customer and she never even looked up at us to acknowledge that we walked into the room. We waited for 30 minutes for anyone to wait on us but they were just too busy for us! They are complete snobs and obviously don't need anymore business. Besides them being rude...the entire store needs a makeover. It smells awful in there. The store has hot pink, matted carpet that hasn't been changed since like 1980 & there are so many clothes in there that it looks like a good will store.
great personal service – beautiful, well made gowns. not as expensive as anticipated. staff very nice and very helpful. definetly recommend.
