The Sentimentalist provides a super unique, customized and pleasant experience! I loved working with Rhiannon. She had great energy, listened to what I was looking for, and helped me to put together and customize the perfect dress. The dresses were all of really great quality, at an amazing price point. I highly recommend The Sentimentalist and Rhiannon!Sent on 10/21/2020

Couldn't have been better!
I knew before stepping foot into The Sentimentalist that I was going to find my wedding dress there. I wanted something gorgeous but a little different than your average gown and there's nowhere more perfect than here! Everyone I worked with totally understood my vibe and I ended up with the perfect dress for my upcoming NYE wedding. I can't wait to go back for an accessory appointment in the summer. Thanks so much Hannah, Rhiannon and everyone else!Sent on 01/15/2021
The Sentimentalist's reply:We love it when a bride just GETS us like you do, Julie! Thanks for having such rad style and kind words. Can't wait to see your look come together xoxo

The kind of experience I always dreamed of!
I could go on and on about my experience at The Sentimentalist! From the moment you walk in, you feel at ease and comfortable by the beautiful atmosphere and great staff. My stylist, Rachael was incredible and knew exactly how to capture my style. She has a natural way of becoming your friend throughout the process and now I cannot imagine my wedding dress shopping experience without her! It was such a nice surprise to experience a shop that carried such a wide selection of unique, romantic and modern dresses. If you are looking for your dress in the ATL area and have a romantic/vintage style, go to The Sentimentalist - you will not regret it!Sent on 09/18/2019
