    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

    The Sentimentalist's reply:

    Thank you for seeing what we strive to deliver every day and in every way! We are elated to see when it works and so grateful for your generous words. We are a small crew with big investment in this biz so you can hardly imagine how big of a blessing your review is. Big hugs from our team to you ;)

    Best experience I could have asked for

    From start to finish, best experience. Stylist knew the inventory inside & out, and was able to pick up on my sense of style very quickly. The store has such high quality, unique yet classic gowns at very reasonable prices. After ordering my gown, there was a mishap with the designer & Sentimentalist did there best to mitigate the situation. Despite the issue, I ended up purchasing two gowns from them and my perception of the store only improved by how they handled the issue! I trust Sentimentalist whole heartedly after my experience.

    The Sentimentalist's reply:

    So... this might be my favorite review of the year!!! Cause.... mishaps don't happen around here often and we really want you to have the BEST time so when we can turn it around the BEST stuff happens. Thank you so much for your understanding and kind words. We are oh so here for you ;)

    Best Wedding Dress Shop in ATL

    The Sentimentalist, and specifically my stylist Hannah, made dress shopping fun, stress-free and one of the more memorable wedding planning experiences. My mom, mother in law and sister all came with me and The Sentimentalist made us feel so special and heard. The process for actually getting my dress was super easy and they recommended a great alterations place. Can't recommend them enough!

    The Sentimentalist's reply:

    We love your recommendation, Erin! Working with you was a pleasure ;) Special and heard is the only way to shop. Thanks again and Happy Married!
