One of our very favorite places in DFW to dress shop is Lulu’s Bridal Boutique! The staff at Lulu’s is friendly and helpful, and their selection is just fantastic. From beaded beauties to soft silhouettes, Lulu’s has it! We chatted with store manager Robin Jackson and stylist Claudia Potts to get the inside scoop!
Describe your favorite type of bride.
Robin: Our favorite type of bride is the “Binder Bride”. This is the bride that comes walking up confidently with her trusty wedding binder in hand. These brides know what they want! She usually comes in with timelines for shopping, ordering, alterations, and bridal portraits. She has everything ready for me to get started. She has pictures of gowns, her budget for her gown and accessories, and her wedding colors. It’s easy to step out on the floor and partner with her in selecting the best dresses to start her appointment with.
Claudia: My favorite type of bride is a bride full of joy, who respects you as a professional, and who is open to ideas. It is so much fun to work with a bride who is excited and who brings a party carrying that same attitude. I want to be their bridal consultant, not just their dressing room attendant; therefore, I want her to grasp the concept that I am here to serve and assist her find the dress of her dreams!
What makes you different at what you do?
Robin: The personalized attention we give to each customer. From the moment a bride walks through our door she is paired with a bridal expert who will assist her every step of the way. We love getting close to our brides and their families during this joyful time.
Claudia: What makes our store different from others is that we have a wide variety of selections. From silhouette, to design, to styles, our brides can get a taste for everything to help her find her overall look. Our salon also cares about the bride having the best and most memorable bridal experience before she leaves the door, whether she finds her dress with or without us!

What are some of the best compliments you’ve received from your clients?
Robin: The best compliments we get are on the size of our dressing rooms. Our rooms make everyone feel like they’re the only ones in the store. This gives our stylist the space to deliver personal one on one service. A lot of brides like it that we’re in “The Design District” and our boutique is an Art Gallery.
Claudia: From what brides have commented, they appreciate the modern look of our salon, our wide selection of dress styles, and they also appreciate their personal fitting rooms for emotional privacy. Compliments that I have received from my brides is that I made them feel like a priority, as well as making the process of finding their dress stress-free, relational, and fun!
What do you love most about weddings?
Robin: One of our favorite parts about weddings is when the bride finds her gown – that look of happiness and surprise is priceless. We also love it when the couple get their first look of each other on the wedding day.
Claudia: What I love the most about weddings is the union involved. There’s something beautiful about not just one man and woman joining together, but their most important people, their families and friends coming together as well. It’s one of the most beautiful and memorable days of someone’s life!
