I absolutely adore the Sentimentalist! When you come up to the adorable home turned vintage shop you ring a bell and you are immediately welcomed by one of the super friendly staff. We waited for a few minutes in the large front room for the stylist to come out. My stylist was Caitlin and she was so sweet and wonderful. She asked about the wedding/ my style to get a better feel and then we went to look at dresses. Oh my the dresses and the designers at the Sentimentalist are beyond words! If you love vintage styles with a modern twist, you will love literally every dress at this shop. Caitlin was super helpful to only pull dresses in my budget. I was really loving everything I tried on, which was making it difficult for me to pick. Then I tried on a dress by designer Elizabeth Dye and FELL IN LOVE. This was the dress. I met with Gabi Lee two days later to put down the deposit for my dress. I had a few questions so she let me slip back into it and answered all the questions I had. This really helped me feel better about what I missed when I first came because I was just in awe of the dress and finally picking one. I can't wait for my wedding day, but knowing I get to wear such a stunning dress I really, really can't wait! The Sentimentalist is such a wonderful shop and an asset to the Atlanta Area. Thank you ladies for everything you do!

My experience at The Sentimentalist was fantastic! We had a relatively short engagement by today's standards (about 7 months), so I had a kind of tight timeline to find the dress and make sure it was ordered and here on time for alterations. The ladies at The Sentimentalist were so wonderful, they made the process easy and such a joy! Rhiannon was my stylist, and I genuinely loved everything she pulled. She listened to what I said I wanted but also threw some things out there that were a little more unexpected. Not only do they have the most beautiful gowns, but they also have amazing accessories. I ended up getting both my veil and a belt for my dress here. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a truly unique and beautiful dress as well as personalized and fabulous service, thanks ladies!Sent on 11/05/2018

Wonderful team and experience!
I found my dress at The Sentimentalist last winter for my fall 2018 wedding. This was the first shop I went to and made myself go to another store just to see...and promptly returned to buy the dress these ladies helped me find. I felt comfortable and beautiful the entire time I was there. They're simply the best!Sent on 10/31/2018
