    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

    The Gown's reply:

    Brooke! Thank you so much for such a lovely review! We are so pleased to hear that you had such an amazing time with Divine! We can't wait to see you again when you pick up your dress! xoxo, The Gown Girls

    Amazing experience!

    Thank you Gown Girls for making my dress shopping experience everything I could have ever wanted! A special thanks to consultant Alex for her patience, recommendations, and confetti popping as I said “yes to the dress!”

    Amazing Experience!

    I had an incredible experience at The Gown! The staff were super friendly and welcoming during the entire process. My consultant, Katie, was extremely helpful, honest and kind. She understood exactly what I was looking for and made great recommendations. It was such an easy process at The Gown and I couldn't be with my dress!

    The Gown's reply:

    Thank you so much for such a lovely review Laura! It was my pleasure to help you find your dream dress! We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your experience with us! I cannot wait to see the pictures for your special day! xo, Katie & The Gown Girls

    So amazing!

    I visited The Gown twice, and both experiences were unforgettable. Katie and Alex made me feel so comfortable and welcome.
    I didn’t feel pressured or rushed to pick a dress, or that they were fighting for commission.
    I bought my dress today and I felt so confident in my choice thanks to the Gown Girls!

    The Gown's reply:

    Hi Laura, thank you so much for such a kind review! Alex and I are so happy to hear that you had such an amazing experience during both of your appointments! We can't wait to see all the pictures from your big day! xoxo, Katie

    Really positive experience!

    I had a really great experience finding my dress at The Gown! In my first appointment, Danni really got to know what style of dress I liked, and each one she picked I loved! I ended up loving two by the end of the appointment, so I booked a follow up appointment to decide between them. Alex was very friendly and helpful at my second appointment, and I ended up going with the dress that I loved since the beginning. Loved my experience at The Gown, and would definitely recommend it to anyone!

    The Gown's reply:

    Thank you so much Laura!! It was such a pleasure to meet you and we're so thrilled that you had such a positive experience with us! We can't wait to see the photos of you in your stunning gown on your big day! Wishing you all the best and happy planning ahead!! xoxo, The Gown Girls

    Best time ever!

    I tried on dresses at 4 different stores and The Gown was the best by far! The shop is clean and beautiful. The girls are even lovelier. Jessica was patient, kind and helpful - as was the entire staff. I said Yes to the Dress and I can't wait to go back to pick it up and try it on again!

    The Gown's reply:

    Thank you so much for such a lovely review Kayla! We are so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your experience with Jessica and everyone else at the boutique. xoxo, The Gown Girls

    Alex is the best!

    Alex was made for this job. I went in feeling very nervous as I am a very self concious person - Alex listened to everything I liked and disliked (including every dress I selected myself) and was able to pull a dress that I just loved! With Alicia's help, they were able to show me what it would look like how I chose to order it (lined, colour, etc.) and I left feeling so excited! Alex even had Taylor Swift playing as I said "Yes!" to the dress, as I told her my fiance played it when we got engaged and how much I love her. She really had some personal touches and the experience was truly stress free and fun. I would recommend The Gown to anyone looking for a dress! Both my sister and I had great experiences, years apart, which goes to show how much they love their jobs! THANK YOU ALEX for absolutely everything!

    The Gown's reply:

    Oh, Melanie! What a sweet and thoughtful review! It made me well up! Thank YOU so much for trusting me to help you find your gown, and for letting me be a part of such a special moment for you. It was my absolute pleasure to help make your appointment one that you will always remember with a smile! You and your family were so just the best! I can't wait to see you all again when your dress arrives! Until then, know how much this means to me, and happy planning!! Xoxo, Alex

    Amazing experience, found my dream dress!

    I do not have enough words to describe how amazing my experience was with the Gown. Every single person who helped me along the way (shout out to Alex, Katie and Jessica) was so helpful, attentive, knowledgable and just wonderful. They have an amazing selection of dresses and their samples range in sizes which was really body positive and made me feel included as a curvier bride. The shop itself is really beautiful with spacious rooms for you and your guests, and I never felt rushed or pressured at all. I ended up finding my dream dress there and would highly recommend to anyone. PS: Their instagram is full of dress and wedding tips as well, and even though I keep eyeing new dresses even after making a decision, I refuse to unfollow them because their account is just that great.
