I absolutely loved my experience!
By naomiesage on 12/20/2010
I absolutely loved my experience at Angelo Lambrou. I was one of those brides who was totally overwhelmed by the wedding dress experience. I went to a few big shops, and then a friend recommended Angelo Lambrou. It was a wonderful experience. Angelo and Laura were so warm and such a pleasure to work with. They helped me pick out a dress that was a perfect reflection of me. I absolutely adored the dress and the experience! I would recommend it to anyone!
This is the place!!!

If you want to get a one-of-a kind dress with extremely friendly and helpful staff, this is the place!! Angelo and his assistant, Laura made my wedding gown shopping experience fun without any drama! Like a typical bride, I wanted to change the style of my wedding dress a couple of times. They were so supportive and so helpful with all the changes I requested!! Angelo and Laura listened to what I wanted, and gave me their sincere advice! The dress was so beautiful!!! I have so many compliments on my dress. Compliment I kept receiving and made me so happy is - The dress is SO YOU! Thank you very much, Angelo and Laura!
stunning dresses - fantastic experience

I found Angelo Lambrou through NY Mag. I live in Chicago, but called and was able to get in while in NY. All of Angelo's dresses are stunning. It was hard to narrow it down to one! With Angelo and Laura's help - I found a fantastic dress that was then customized for me. The dress is gorgeous, comfortable and light, lovely fabrics and incredibly unique. I heard from many (many!) of my friends and family that is the best wedding dress they had ever seen. I also heard that it was befitting of my personality. The whole experience was so much fun, easy and exceeded all expectations. This is 100% the place to go for a wedding dress - and next up for me....a fantastic party dress!
The best thing about planning my wedding...

In the midst of the stress and chaos of planning a wedding, my experience with Angelo Lambrou was a breath of fresh air -- an easy, fun experience from start to finish. Angelo and Laura (his assistant) worked to create the wedding dress of my dreams, and couldn't have been more helpful or easy to work with in the process. Considering that the dress was custom made, and that all the alterations were included, the price was extremely reasonable. I don't know why anyone would want to go anywhere else! I'm convinced that anyone can find their perfect dress at Angelo Lambrou. As for mine, I received compliments throughout the night -- some even telling me it was the most beautiful, classiest dress they'd ever seen. Perhaps most importantly, my husband loved it, too. If you're looking for a relaxed, fun experience and a beautiful dress, look no further than Angelo Lambrou. You won't be sorry.
ABSOLUTELY THE BEST!!

Angelo and Laura are truly a dynamic duo that made my wedding dress journey a complete joy. From the moment I walked into Angelo's fabulous world of fashion, I was immediately drawn to the modern take that he brings to his gowns. I fell in love with how his asymmetrical details exude such elegance, and how the spectacular movement of each dress breathes such life into the fabric. I was equally enamored by how at ease both he and Laura made me feel as we ventured through the collaborative process of creating an original gown that couldn't have been more perfect for me. Angelo's innovative eye is unmatched, and on my wedding day I was ecstatic to be wearing his exceptional work of art. I received countless compliments from my wedding guests, vendors, staff members from the reception, and (perhaps most importantly) my husband! I wholeheartedly recommend Angelo Lambrou...he's absolutely the best!!

angelo and laura were a pleasure to work with. they made the dress of my dreams and the entire process was wonderful. i wish i could purchase custom-made dresses all the time simply so that i could work with them more often! my dress was beautiful and fit me perfectly. i definitely looked better than i have ever looked on my wedding day, due mostly to the dress. they were so meticulous about every detail and so helpful with other elements of the day, not just limited to my wardrobe. i can't give them a more glowing recommendation. it was worth every penny (and it's not that many pennies when compared to other wedding gown stores in this city).
STUNNING, one-of-a-kind wedding dress EVERYONE exclaimed!
By AnnalisaE on 4/25/2010
Angelo and his assistant Laura worked together to create the most gorgeous, unique dress (and jacket to go over the dress) I could ever imagine. It fit perfectly in the Southern, historic home where we had our wedding. Everyone at the wedding, including the photographer and wedding planner, spontaneously commented on how incredible the dress was and wanted to know about the designer. Angelo and Laura are amazingly warm, relaxed, responsive, creative and down-to-earth. They were wonderful through every step of the process: from choosing the dress, the colors, during the alterations and in delivering it all as promised. I could not have hoped for a more wonderful and personalized experience!
Like a dream...

Reading all the glowing articulate reviews that have been written so far about Angelo Lambrou, it's hard to know what else there is to say. When I went to seek out a wedding dress, I knew that I wanted something simple, beautiful, and uniquely me. Most of all I didn't want to feel like I was playing dress up in a bride costume. Angelo and Laura were so supportive and amazing every step of the way. They were completely committed to helping me achieve my vision and incorporated all of my design preferences with openness. The result was an insanely comfortable dress that made me feel like a goddess. I couldn't count the number of times people told me that it was the most beautiful wedding dress they'd ever seen. But my favorite part was how wonderfully it moved on the dance floor. I felt like a little girl again twirling in my fancy party dress!! I think I'll be taking my dress out from time to time just to twirl in it :-)
A rating of 10 isn't high enough.

Finding a wedding gown can be a miserable experience...or it can be wonderful. I had no idea what kind of dress I was looking for and I went to many different places- from a cheap one on the lower east side- to a huge store in NJ- and then Angelo Lambrou. The smile that you are greeted with at every visit is so comforting. The fabrics they use feel like butter on your skin. Angelo & Laura were so easy to work with- they want you to love your dress, they don't want to just sell you a dress. They are true craftsman who are open to ideas & create designs that are truly unique and, in my opinion, more beautiful than any other designer out there. Guests told me my dress was the most beautiful dress they've ever seen & though I know people often say that to a bride- I think they meant it. The only thing I miss about planning a wedding is going to my fittings. I may pretend to get married again just so I can work with them and wear another dress made by Angelo.

Everything about my experience at the Angelo Lambrou boutique with Angelo and Laura was extraordinary! I was looking for a wedding dress and they made me the dress of my dreams. I went in with a few ideas, including some thoughts about color and budget, which they listened to closely. Angelo then used his creative eye and talents to design a unique dress that suited me and fit beautifully. He attended to every fold and detail with complete precision. Laura was incredibly supportive and kept me sane and the entire process on schedule and running smoothly. She also added the final touches that made the dress sparkle. Working with them was a total pleasure.
