    Experienced, Professional, Kind & Responsive - with Gorgeous Dresses!

    I cannot say enough good about Gilda's! From the moment I spoke with her on the phone to make my appointment, to the moment we popped a bottle to celebrate my "Yes!" to the dress, I felt so loved and cared for. Gilda spent hours, over multiple appointments, helping me to find "the one" dress that would make me head over heels. She is also extremely responsive (she even responded to me about a follow-up appointment while on vacation in Iceland)! I really took my time to decide, and she was patient the whole time, continuing to help me try on dozens of styles. I highly recommend her for her experience, kindness, fairness of price, dress/style variety, location and overall love for her profession!

    Gilda has the best selection of wedding dresses!

    Gilda not only provided the best personalized service in finding the perfect wedding gown for my special day, but offered professional advice and tips on hair styling and makeup. She really spends time learning about the look you are going for and making your every wish come true. I highly recommend Gilda!
