unique.. and fun!
By NancyJB on 3/10/2008
I'd visited one too many stuffy, snobby bridal shops when I had the good fortune to stumble on Angelo Lambrou's shop in the East Village. Instead of the disapproving once-over I was met with at other shops, Laura and Angelo greeted me with a big smile and a glass of wine. The materials are divine and the dresses flattering - and what a pleasure to spend time in the shop! After I'd tried on all of the samples, Angelo worked with me to use the elements I'd liked from a few different dressed to create a dress that was unique and very much "me". There were no cookie-cutter ideas of what a wedding dress "should" be and no pressure to go out of my comfort zone. And what a beautiful final product! Angelo and Laura made the wedding dress process fun, creative and relaxing. It was a real pleasure, from beginning to end.

I LOVE Angelo and Laura. I got married in August 2008 in Central Park and Angelo made me The Perfect dress for an outdoor wedding and reception. (FYI: If you're looking for a formal gown they can definitely work with you as they have many style options from simple to uniquely extravagant). Plus their keen eyes helped with assesing fit and my personal style. My dress is beautiful, light, airy,unique, sensual and sexy. I was told I looked stunning and regal, like a queen of the garden. Surprisingly enough it was my husband who found their website after I was frustrated from looking at pricey and typical looking gowns with prices of $3K and upward. He said, "You really should go to this store, I looked at some of their stuff on their site and it looks like you." Finding them and my dress was like finding a piece of myself. If you'd like, I invite you to look at my wedding photos. http://www.flickr.com/photos/crisphotogram/sets/72157601963076588/show/ *sigh* I'm looking forward to dyeing it so that i can wear it again, especially on our wedding aniversary...

I recently got married and wore a dress from Angelo Lambrou. I could not have been any happier with my experience. Walking into Angelo's shop was like a breath of fresh air. It is low key, calm, all around wonderful. Angelo and his assistant Laura are warm, fun, kind people who felt like friends after just a few minutes. They quickly figured out what I would look good and feel comfortable in. The dress was elegant, simple and extremely comfortable. I wish I could wear it every day!! The only reason to get married again would be to have Angelo make me another dress. I can't say enough about these wonderful people and the extremely unique yet totally classic and beautiful clothes.
my perfect wedding dress

When I first walked into Angelo's gorgeous shop, I thought I had walked into a dream. I had barely begun my search for a wedding dress, and I was already dreading it, so wary was I of the cliche styles that overpopulate wedding magazines and websites. But here was a store full of beautiful , UNIQUE dresses - one more stunning than the last: soft, flowing, romantic and sexy, constructed perfectly and made to order. And then there were Angelo and his assistant, Laura - two of the nicest people you'll ever meet. My entire experience with them, start to finish, was utterly satisfying. The day of my wedding I was comfortable 'til the very end, received the most superlative compliments on the dress, and felt more beautiful than I ever had in my life. Angelo is a total star!
Beautiful , special dresses

I could not find a wedding dress that I liked until I went to Angelo Lambrou, where I found many styles to choose from. The dress I purchased was elegant, beautiful, and easy to wear-no special underwear needed- and comfortable. The service is excellent. They are extremely helpful and so nice. This is a great place to go for a wedding or party dress.
Angelo Lambrou--land of the fabulous dress
By melisska on 12/8/2007
I purchased two fabulous dresses here, my wedding dress and an evening dress. The wedding dress was perfect....elegant, comfortable, not remotely bridal and no special undergarments required (what could be better?). The evening dress I bought years ago and have worn it so many times that it has a life of it's own...It's known as the "Angelo Lambrou dress". The service is here is great and they give you lovely white wine to sip while have a fitting. What could be better?
