I LOVED my experience at Heidi's. I needed to find a dress to hide a medical device, and Joy was an angel helping me do that. Heidi was in the store during both of my appointments and it was amazing to hear her story and get to know her! She is an inspiration and the coolest #BossMom ever.

Simply amazing!! I cannot begin to describe the feeling I had after leaving Heidi Elnora's bridal boutique. My wedding planner told me that being an interior designer and having an eye for detail, I would appreciate the personalized experience that Heidi had to offer. It was just that and then some!! They did their homework on what my personal style was before I even come in. They were more than hospitable to my family and I and made me feel so special and excited the entire time. Even when I felt anxious, nervous, and overwhelmed the Heidi team calmed me and made me feel confident. Liz was my stylist and she is truly a blessing. The dress I ended up falling in love with was the first one they showed me and even on the hanger I KNEW it was the one!! I couldn't possibly be more in love with it!! Might I add that this was the first day I had even looked for dresses. My experience at Heidi Elnora Atelier was truly a dream!! Thank you to Maygan, Joy, and precious Liz and also to Heidi for designing the gown of my dreams!

Living in San Francisco, I did most of my wedding dress shopping at the many bridal boutiques in the city. I had an upcoming trip home to Birmingham planned to visit my family. I wanted to do some dress shopping with my mom so she could share that experience with me. I had no intention of actually finding my dress in Alabama. I asked my brother's girlfriend for a recommendation, and she did not hesitate to recommend Heidi Elnora Atelier. 
My expectations were far exceeded from moment one. Walking into the cute storefront on Morris, I was blown away by the beauty of the showroom. Every dress was stunningly crafted, and we had the entire store to ourselves. Elizabeth helped us, and made me feel so comfortable and happy. It was the first wedding dress shopping experience that was actually fun and felt the way I had imagined it should. 
I knew as soon as I put on the Andy Darling that it was my dress. It was beautiful, comfortable, and perfect for our beach wedding in Mexico. The entire experience was flawless and so special. I received so many compliments on the uniqueness of my dress. I loved that it didn't look like every other wedding dress this season.

Heidi Elnora dreamed up my dream dress! I was searching for something specific and was not having any luck finding exactly what I envisioned, much less something that was structured and made for my body. Heidi listened to my vision, which was to remain classic with simple lines, but to add an accentuating detail that would give it that WOW factor, and she nailed it. I LOVED my Build-A-Bride dress and would not have changed a thing! Thank you Heidi for your creativity and for being an inspiration to me and to so many other fellow artists!

When I first walked in to Heidi Elnora Atelier, I knew I was in the right place. Everyone there makes you feel like they have known you your whole life. When I sat down with Elizabeth, she asked me questions not only about the dress I wanted but questions to get to know me and my personality. I feel like this is how I managed to find a dress that fit me perfectly in every sense! The excitement Elizabeth, Joy, and Heidi had when I put on the dress is what every girl dreams about. I can't thank them enough for making my day so special!

Absolutely blown away by this shop and their staff! I could not have asked for a better experience for my first time shopping for a dress. Heidi and her staff created a friendly, down to earth atmosphere and blew me away with their bridal knowledge. I explained the style of dress that I wanted and showed her pictures, and she knew right away which dress to pull and that ended up being my dress! I would definitely recommend this shop to any future bride! Breathtakingly, beautiful dresses and the warmest, kindhearted staff you will find!

She addressed all of my concerns and helped me find exactly what I was looking for. Elizabeth is so talented! Her bubbly energy made my experience fun & exciting as we discussed possible dress designs! Every member of Heidi's Team went above and beyond to make sure not only was I comfortable, but also made my family feel welcomed & taken care of. I would urge every apprehensive bride, that no matter your budget, Heidi & Her Team will help you become a fabulous #heidibride!

My Mom and I visited Heidi Elnora Atelier while I was home for the holidays and I was able to find my dream gown for my beach wedding in May. Liz and Joy were so kind and helpful!

I cannot express how much I loved my Heidi experience and Heidi dress enough! Liz and Joy were such a pleasure to work with! They knew right away that I was more of a Hello Darling kind of girl and had me try on three dresses from that line. I fell instantly in love with Breeze Darling...the romantic 3-d lace flowers, the lightness of the dress and the low back were perfect for our wedding at the Botanical Gardens! Liz and Joy made the whole experience so enjoyable and easy. They treated my friends and I to champagne when I knew the Breeze Darling was my dress, they held the phone to Facetime my mom who was in another state at the time and they made me feel like a princess! They are simply the best!

If you are engaged and looking for YOUR perfect gown, you MUST visit Heidi Elnora Atelier! The shop is beautiful and the staff is wonderful,knowledgeable, and accommodating. It was a “pressure-free” environment and they made the whole experience effortless (Elizabeth and Joy rock)! A bride has off-the-rack options or can create her own unique gown. It is truly a one-of-a-kind wedding dress shopping experience tailored to be as unique as the bride that wears the dress!!

I cannot say enough positive things about Heidi Elnora Atelier. Elizabeth and Joy were a pleasure to work with and treated me as part of their family. Everything I asked for they provided. They never told me no. I had had such a horrible experience dress shopping at the 3 previous shops I had been to and Heidi was such a breath of fresh air. I was able to build my own gown within my budget and get everything I wanted. I would highly recommend going to Heidi Elnora Atelier.

heidi elnora Atelier was the first and only place I shopped for my dress and it was an amazing experience! My husband and I both wanted the wedding to be a stress-free and fun experience from start to finish and shopping at the Atelier was no exception. I wasn’t sure what style I would go for, so they showed me lots of different dresses and let me take my time debating between dresses. In the end I chose the first dress I picked out and tried on and it was perfect! I felt great on my wedding day - my dress was not only beautiful, but also comfortable and light enough that it was easy to dance the night away. Thank you to the whole heidi elnora team for being part of our big day!

My bridal experience as a Heidi Bride was perfection! You know the saying, “Beautiful inside and out”, well that is how I would describe Heidi Elnora Alterlier. Not only is every single detail in the Alterlier absolutely stunning, but Liz and Joy are two of the most beautiful and kind ladies on earth. I felt so welcomed, loved, understood, and comfortable as I worked with them to build my DREAM dress! Heidi’s attention to detail and love for her brides was present during every step of my dress journey. I’m proud to be a Heidi Bride and I would recommend Heidi Elnora to every bride-to-be!

The ladies at Heidi Elnora are incredible! They made me feel so loved and special when I went in to look for my wedding dress. They had so much patience with me as I tried on so many dresses, and then eventually helped me customize my very own gown. The store is gorgeous, all the gowns are amazing, but the Heidi Elnora family is the best part. So personable, so loving, and so sincere! I LOVE my wedding dress and highly recommend Heidi Elnora Atelier!!!

Heidi Elnora was the first bridal boutique on my list! My aunt gave me some advice before going in- don't fall in love with one of the first ones you put on. She was a believer in shopping around at multiple boutiques to find the perfect dress. But of course, the third dress I tried on ended up being the one. I felt no pressure to buy a dress and they did an awesome job helping me stay on budget. Liz and Joy made the experience so laid back and fun! They are truly invested in you during your visit and I would recommend them to anyone anywhere!

Heidi elnora Altelier is by far the best place to go dress shopping in Birmingham! The entire staff was so incredibly helpful and caring. Liz was the BEST! She was so patient as I tried on different dresses, and she knew exactly what I had in mind. I found the most beautiful dress, and I could not have done it without her! The entire staff made me feel like the most special bride from the moment I walked into the door! If you are dress shopping in Birmingham, you have to check out their bridal boutique! You will not be disappointed!

I cannot say enough positive things about Heidi Elnora Atelier. Heidi and her team were a pleasure to work with and treated me like family. I feel every girl tries to imagine what the experience is going to be like when they first try on a wedding dress, and the team at Heidi Elnora Atelier made that more special than I ever could have dreamed of. We incorporated the lace from my moms wedding gown with the lovely Ella Grace dress to create my heirloom gown. I can not begin to describe the feeling of joy that I have when I think about my wedding gown. Working with Heidi and her team was truly an experience my mom and I will cherish forever.

All of the dresses are gorgeous, but she created a combination that was perfect for me. I was lucky enough to have Heidi be my consultant, buteveryone else was also knowledgeable and friendly. She was considerate of our budget and made every part of the experience enjoyable. I am so glad I chose to be a Heidi Bride!

The entire Heidi team was so amazing and they made this special experience everything that I had hoped for and more. I can't thank them enough for not only the one-on-one attention in helping me try on dresses, but also the welcoming and warm environment they created for my bridesmaids and I to really enjoy the process.

Ok so you are engaged and if you are like me, you have zero clues as to where to start looking for a dress. No I'm being serious - literally NO IDEA of what you want and where to find it. Of course we all know that there are some seriously amazing bridal boutiques in Birmingham but believe me when I tell you that the Atlier is where you have to go. Start there and you will end there. I walked in and I just had to be a part of the family. And you ARE family. I felt special and important during the entire experience. Liz was my go-to girl: y'all she became like my best friend in minutes. So sweet, kind, and accommodating. Let's not even get started on Heidi. She's brilliant. She can make you a dress of essentially your own design OR you can rock one of her magical concoctions (which is what I went with). Oh wait, she's also a super cool person. Her dresses are unique yet modern, timeless and elegant. And even better, you can put your own touch and style on them. Does it get any better than this girls? Long story short, this place is just everything I wanted and more in a bridal boutique experience. I'm honored to be a Heidi Bride.

Favorite place, favorite people, the BEST part of my wedding experience so far!! I cannot say enough good things about their service! I had absolutely no clue what I was looking for in a gown, but they spent FIVE HOURS with me (yes, you read that correctly!) making sure I was not only satisfied with my gown, but absolutely smitten over it! All thanks to them, I absolutely cannot wait for February 3rd!!

I walked into Heidi Elnora hoping to just try on silhouettes to see what fit well and I walked out with the perfect dress. I truly feel like the dress we picked was “me” in a dress! Heidi even convinced me with “a ring on my finger and a man that loves me” there was no reason to have a 2 year long engagement and it quickly changed to a one year engagement with my fiancé! Thank goodness!

I had searched multiple stores in Atlanta and was feeling down about not finding the dress. As soon as I perused the Heidi Elnora website, I knew this is where I would find my dress. Using build- a- bride, I was able to pick a dress style, pick the fabric, and make additions that made my dress unique to me. My favorite detail was the train! The process was so easy and I loved that my dress was made for ME.

Heidi and her team were created to create. During my first visit to Heidi Elnora Atelier, my dream wedding dress was born in Heidi's sketch book. One and a half years later that sketch came to life at the hands of Heidi's amazing team. While they seemlessly fulfill the call to create the dress of a lifetime, they also answer the highest call: to love. Each encounter with Heidi and her team left me feeling seen, heard, and important. May every bride have the opportunity to marry the love of their life wearing a dress that is stitched with love.

I cannot say enough good things about the Heidi Elnora team! I was having a lot of trouble finding a wedding dress that I really loved until I came to Heidi Elnora. Elizabeth was so incredible to work with, she has such a creative eye and ability to make a dress uniquely tailored to your preferences. I would strongly recommend Heidi Elnora to anyone in the area, we drove 3.5 hours to come and it was worth every minute!! I cannot wait to wear my dress!
