10 stars!

I wish I had more stars available to give! What an amazing experience. I was a little anxious about the process before shopping for my dress. LuLu and Michelle made the entire process from beginning to end so comfortable and so fun! I left with the most perfect dress for myself, and my mom left with her’s too! They are so helpful and knowledgable. And the store is an absolute dream. I hope those women know how special they made me feel. I am so grateful and SO happy to have found this gem.

Must Visit!

I went to Gilded Rose on a whim because I saw they had an open appointment and had great reviews online. I went there on my first day trying on wedding dresses to see if I could try on different types of dresses, to find the style I liked most. I didn't expect to find my perfect dress there! The quality of dresses is top tier and each was more gorgeous than the last. I went back to Gilded Rose two more times to show off the dress to different people and they never pressured me to say yes or buy the dress in that moment. It was such a relief to try on dresses in an environment with no pressure, where I knew I was saying yes to the dress that I loved the most and at a place that cared about me as a person rather than just focusing on getting a sale. I told all my engaged friends that they must go to Gilded Rose to try on dresses!

Sweet and wonderful!

My experience at Gilded Rose Atelier was better than I could have hoped! A trunk show lead me to their shop, otherwise I might not have heard of them since I live in Wisconsin. I am so thankful to have said yes to my dress there! The space is beautiful, and by booking a private appointment, I had room to walk around and really experience the dress fully. Lulu helped me out, and she is the sweetest and made me feel comfortable, answered any questions I had, and offered her professional opinion in ways that really helped me make my final decision. It was a wonderful experience, so thank you!
