Can't say enough about The Sentimentalist!
Both my best friend and I got our dresses here, one year apart. We each got dresses that were unique to our own personal style and both an incredible experience. We'd gone to other places and they were... Ok. When I walked into The Sentimentalist it was like the air cleared. The space is gorgeous, the people are friendly, and the experience is just top-notch. Everything you hope for when you think of the moment you buy your wedding dress. I love this place, please go.Sent on 01/09/2020

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

First appointment could not have gone better!
I was so nervous to try on wedding dresses and I had no idea what to expect; however, my experience at The Sentimentalist could not have been better! Rhiannon was a perfect match for me and was able to take my indecisiveness and nervousness completely out of the equation. She was so great at moving quickly while also taking my feedback after each dress to eventually find my perfect dress! She came prepared to the appointment with information I’d previously filled out in the questionnaire and continued to ask great insightful questions to determine which dresses were going to be the best fit. She was able to explain why dresses I liked online wouldn’t provide me with what I wanted in a dress and she pulled dresses I wouldn’t have picked out myself but which ended up looking great on! She was also great at listening to my mom’s feedback while also focusing on me and making sure my thoughts were heard. Thank you Rhiannon for being so amazing!Sent on 11/04/2019
The shop itself is gorgeous. I could’ve stayed there all-day watching women try on beautiful wedding dresses. The décor is a perfect blend of vintage with some industrial touches. The area to try on dresses felt large and private and I was so comfortable.
I can’t thank the team at The Sentimentalist enough for providing me with such an incredible experience of trying on wedding dresses. My first appointment and I found the dress – I still can’t believe it and I can’t wait to return when my dress arrives!
The Sentimentalist's reply:Alexa! Thank you for such a kind and thoughtful review ;) This means so much to us and it is all OUR pleasure to have worked with you. Rhiannon is simply the best in the business! Thanks again for all the love and let us know how we can be of assistance every step of the way ;)
