Life IS better Gilded - the perfect bridal dress shopping experience!

I cannot say enough wonderful things about my experience at Gilded Bridal! Susan and Makenzie were both so lovely! I worked with Susan on my first visit, and all the intimidation I felt about dress shopping before we arrived was gone within a few minutes of meeting her. She is knowledgeable, helpful, professional, and so much fun. She made the experience enjoyable and all-around wonderful! She really listens and attunes to you and tailors the experience. She paid attention to everything I said about our wedding, what I wanted, and what I did or didn't like with each particular dress I picked out to try on, and then helped me find exactly what I wanted within my budget and timeframe. I thought I wanted a specific style and shape of dress, but after starting to try on the ones I picked out, I realized what I thought I wanted wasn't hitting the mark. I'd like the bodice, but not the skirt, or I'd love the neckline, but not the shape/cut/fabric. Susan was paying close attention to everything I was saying, and brought in a dress I hadn't nor would I have picked to try, and it was PERFECT! I felt beautiful, elegant, glamorous, and comfortable, so much so that I didn't want to take it off! She figured out what type of dress I wanted before I did, and then found the one for me; she is truly exceptional at what she does!

When I came back for a second try on, ordering and measurements, Susan was out of town at the NYC Bridal Fashion Week, and she arranged for me to meet with Makenzie. Makenzie was also amazing to work with, professional, knowledgeable, so enjoyable to be around, and accommodating. Now that I had decided on the dress, she helped me order, got my measurements, and then helped to advise on different veil styles and options, and even bridesmaid dresses!

I visited other bridal shops in the area, and none of them came close to comparing to my experiences with Susan and Makenzie at Gilded Bridal. Life truly is Better Gilded!

Amazing bridal salon and experience

Susan was incredible to work with! When I walked into Gilded I was a bit overwhelmed by the selection as there are so many dresses to choose from, and she took the time to ask what I was looking for and my budget, before helping me find a few dresses to initially try on. I actually chose the first dress I tried on as it was the absolute perfect one. I also purchased earrings and hair accessories when I picked up my dress a few months later, and was so happy with their selection. The entire experience working with the Gilded team was incredible.

Loved Gilded

This was my second salon of the day, I showed my consultant my favorite dress from the first shop & she sussed out what qualities were important to me & showed me the perfect leveled-up version of that dress. I felt very comfortable the entire time & had an overall great experience! I can't wait for my dress to come in so I can put it back on!
