Gilded Social Bride
The Story

The Story

Ashley was our very first Kelly Faetanini bride. You always remember your first. I remember knowing that she was going to be the one when she told me she really wanted straps, lace, and sparkle on a slim A line gown. Well, I had just the dress. 


When I pulled it, it was pure MAGIC. Ashley walked out, and the tears were instant. She knew it, I knew it, we all knew it! But, since this was her first time trying on, we kept going just to be sure. It didn’t take long to go right back to Nyssa and there were those tears again! Just two small customizations would make it absolutely perfect - a split size and swapped skin tone matching tulle for the side cutouts. Yep, then that was it. 


Ashley had traveled all the way from Cleveland to shop with us, so once her dress came in, she took it back home to have all her services completed. No matter - we’re just honored she came to shop with us that day! She will live on in the Gilded Hall of Fame forever as the first gal who said YES to a famed Kelly Faetanini dress.

The Review

“I had a great experience with Gilded Social. It was the first and only bridal shop I shopped at for my wedding dress! Tanya made the process very stress-free by having pieces pre-selected based on our conversation before the meeting. I couldn’t be happier to be a Gilded Social Bride!”
