Just found my dress!

I went yesterday to go look at dresses as my wedding is a year and more than a half away. Shannon helped me right away and was amazing and listen to what I wanted, took the time to go through a ton of dresses because I wanted to see all kinds. She was professional, funny, and so kind. It made the experience really magical for me. Right off the bat, Shannon put us into the newer large bridal suite since we were the last appointment and we were treated like royalty! The first dress I tried on ended up being the one, she knew just based off some pictures of other dresses I had shown her. I'm a plus size bride so I was a little anxious about finding a dress and even nervous for the whole experience but I'm so happy and glad I went here!! Even though she knew that the first dress was my dress, i asked to try on more just to see if it was the dress I was blown away by or the style and the poor woman dragged tons of dresses out of the changeroom! But her expertise was so well on point, she knew exactly what she was doing and I was completely confident in her abilities and knowledge. She's a genius!! I would recommend to anyone who is just looking or is wanting to buy a dress but is unsure. GO HERE! They treat you like family and want to see you happy and will do the most to make sure your experience is amazing! Just so blown away by the experience and so happy and thankful to the staff here!

If you aren't shopping at The Gown for your wedding dress, you are MISSING OUT!

This was a phenomenal experience from start to finish. I LOVE that you can add items to your wish-list in advance of your appointment, and they have them ready for you when you get there. The private fitting rooms were comfortable and cute and really made the experience feel glamorous! Having the option of a Zoom link so that my mother could attend from across the country was such a great touch and made this so special for me. My consultant was Emily, and wow, was she great! She's got tons of energy and she's so positive and knowledgeable - you really feel like you're in good hands.

I did find my dress at my first appointment and the little special touches The Gown puts into everything after you choose really sets them apart. I won't go into details, because I don't want to spoil the surprises, but honestly they just kept making my day even a couple of weeks after the appointment. I can't wait to go back for my dress reveal this summer!

I'm so glad I chose The Gown for my wedding dress shopping experience. I guarantee you won't be disappointed if you come here!

11/10 - Best overall experience!

Out of all the wedding dress stores I shopped at, I had the BEST experience here! Emily is SUCH a sweetheart and provided a stellar experience for me and my party. She made me feel comfortable right away and was genuinely trying to help me pick my dress, giving me honest opinions instead of telling me everything looked nice. She also made sure I got a dress that I loved and was within my budget. Even the experience after I chose my dress was incredible - Emily hand-wrote me a card and mailed it to my house with a magnet of a picture she took of me and my mom saying 'yes to the dress.' The customer service is 11/10. I recommend this place to every bride. Oh, and they also have the CUTEST dressing rooms!

The Most Amazing Experience

I had the pleasure of working with Shannon to find my dream wedding gown. My mother and I went to The Gown as our first look to get the feel for some dresses/styles I would like. We left that day having purchased my dream dress.

Shannon and her team do absolutely everything in their power to make this experience enjoyable and stress free and I truly appreciated Shannon's attention to what I - the bride - wanted whether mom wanted it or not. She made me feel validated and always checked to make sure I was feeling good.

I would recommend The Gown to absolutely every single bride. Not only did they pull EVERY single dress I had favourited from the website (and I favourited a lot) Shannon patiently went through them all with me until I had it narrowed down to three, and then one.

THE place for THE GOWN.

Saying yes!

Buying my dress couldn’t have been a better experience. Emily was phenomenal at picking the dresses I would like, and did everything she could do make sure I was comfortable and happy with the dress I picked. So grateful to the Gown and to Emily!

Beautiful & Relaxing appointment with Shannon

Shannon was absolutely amazing !! She took time with me before even trying on dresses to help me de-stress and be comfortable with the process. She picked amazing dresses based on what I did and didn’t like and thanks to her, I found my dream dress on my very first appointment! Thank you so much Shannon ❤️

Thank you, Emily!!!!

The Gown is THE place!

I went a few weeks ago for my very first bridal appointment ever! I was really excited but nervous I had a very clear vision of what I thought I wanted and there was no shortage of dresses, you name it they had it!

My experience was magical, the second we walked in we were greeted with smiles and so much comfort and the smell was amazing! We got brought back to our Bridal Suite and got settled in, the most luxurious feeling! Emily was MY PERSON through my whole experience, Emily had my dresses I had saved to my wish list ready to go for me all layed out and took the time to go through the dresses with me prior to putting them on! She did an AMAZING job at pulling different dresses as we were going when I liked certain features on dresses, and even when I wanted to see something very opposite of the style I liked she brought it in right away! Every dress I tried on Emily heard me on my opinions and thoughts and made sure I had the most beautiful experience!

I ended up saying YES to the dress at The Gown! The experience of saying yes at The Gown was another magical moment! They brought over mocktails for me and my party and my glass was customized “I said YES”, and after we got to go over to their photo wall and we got a group picture!

The experience was more than I ever thought I would have, there was no shortage of special moments and I am so thankful for the experience I had at The Gown, and I am so thankful for Emily for hearing me, understanding me and making me feel so beautiful on my Yes day!! Seriously Emily was so great I’d put her in my bridal party!! I can’t wait to go back for my reveal day!!!

Amazing Service

I cannot say enough good things about this boutique. I wasn’t planning on buying a dress when I came in with one of my bridesmaids but I did and I couldn’t be happier. Divine was absolutely amazing the whole way through and the rest of the staff were so lovely as well
