Literally a game changer!
I can't thank the universe enough for The Sentimentalist. I had my first wedding dress appointment at A DIFFERENT BRIDAL SHOP and without getting into detail it was terrible.Sent on 07/13/2021
When I got a phone call from the Sentimentalist saying that a spot had opened that afternoon, I was relieved - and hopeful that things would turn around, and boy did they.
Hannah was a saint. She was so knowledgeable about the entire collection, the different types of fabrics, fits and what I might be interested in. She made me feel so comfortable trying on things outside of my comfort zone and walked me through whatever I needed to find the perfect dress.
I'm pretty sure she knew which one I would end up with from the moment we started talking, but she allowed me to try on as many as I needed to get to that conclusion myself. I swear, she's a wedding dress wizard.
Once I was back in THE dress, Hannah gave me a full up-do so that I could try on my vail and get a real picture. She was comforting, and genuine and truly made me feel so beautiful. She is amazing.
Also, the Sentimentalist is so beautiful. The moment you walk in there is this vintage, zen and stunning vibe that hits you in the face. It's incredible and everyone that works there is amazing.
If you're the type of bride that doesn't think she can see herself in the standard stark-white poofy dress, the Sentimentalist will have what you're looking for and more. So elegant, different, unique and beautiful!
The Sentimentalist's reply:You deserve nothing but the best, Joelle! We are so grateful for this kind review. You don't even know how incredibly personal this business is to us and how many small biz babes you made smile today. We are lucky to know you and excited to meet many more like you because of feedback like this ;) XOXO

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

I cannot compliment this store enough! I had such an amazing experience looking for my wedding dress here. All of the staff were so friendly, upbeat, and helpful. Rachel, my consultant, was amazing and made the process so easy and fun. I ended up choosing a dress I never would have tried on on my own and that she pulled for me. She was very mindful of my budget and only pulled one dress above my price range after asking me twice if it would be okay and only because it was exactly the type of dress I was describing. She wasn’t pushy at all and was super understanding and supportive. The store as a great selection of unique dresses ranging from subtle to very unique. The prices were very reasonable and had sample sizes that you could purchase to help keep the price down. I had an overall wonderful experience and think every bride should check them out!Sent on 03/06/2021
