Don't wait to visit this shop!

Bottom line up front, The Sentimentalist is everything and more. I tried a few different shops in the ATL metro area but not a single one could compare, not even a little. The shop itself is an entire mood- great lighting, relaxed, huge individual try-on space for you and your guests, and very welcoming overall. The gowns are unique, highly customizable, handmade by smaller designers, but still priced competitively- so if you are looking to support smaller businesses, and stand out/avoid looking like every other bride on your wedding day, you've found the right shop. I visited with many different staff during my dress buying experience, which was always seamless and never felt piece-meal, and responses to phone and email were super speedy. The staff was hands-down the MOST knowledgeable about everything compared to other shops I visited, and made me feel so welcomed and comfortable each time I visited; this shop is not lying when they tell you they are all about inclusivity and body positivity. Can't thank The Sentimentalist enough for their SUPERIOR service. 15/10 would recommend

Found my dream dress!

I wanted to try on wedding dresses from a specific designer, which is how I initially found The Sentimentalist. I am so glad I did! Hannah and her team were so helpful - including when I had to do a virtual measurement session before placing my final order, after I had emergency knee surgery! My dress arrived on time (actually a few days early)! Cannot recommend them enough!

Don't Shop Anywhere Else!

The Sentimentalist was the perfect place to find my wedding dress! I felt empowered and listened to throughout the dress selection process, and I felt even more beautiful on my big day. After I picked up my dress, they went above and beyond in answering questions about undergarments, makeup recommendations, and more. I can't imagine buying my dress from anyplace else!
