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

An Amazing One of a Kind Custom Dress UNDER $2000!
I cannot recommend the Sentimentalist enough! The store and dress selection are creative and eclectic for a bride that wants the look of something unique not just anything off the rack. I was so lucky to have a wonderful stylist who helped me find a dress I never would have picked from a trunk sale. After thinking about it for a few days I went back and was lucky enough to be paired up with the owner Gabi and wow she made my dreams come true! She talked me through any issues, pulled lace samples and even spoke with the dress designer during my appointment to help me make a one of a kind and amazing dress! I couldn't be happier and the whole process was easy and felt pressure free!Sent on 05/15/2020
The Sentimentalist's reply:We are the happy ones! Thank YOU so much for shopping small and sharing your kind words ;) We loved working with you and wish you ALL the very very best. XOXO Gabi Lee

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
