What to know before you come in to purchase your bridesmaid dress.

We can't wait to see you!

Shop Note: This post is intended for bridesmaids who are coming into Gilded Social to try on a few styles that have been pre-selected and then purchase a dress or simply purchase a dress that has already been selected for them!



Thank you so much for scheduling your appointment to purchase your dress with Gilded Social! Here are a few bits & tips before you arrive. If you have any questions or need more information, don't hesitate to call, email, or text us. We're excited, are you excited?

Gilded Social is downtown Columbus on Gay St

How to Find us & Where to Park

We're located above Due Amici at 65 East Gay Street in downtown Columbus, Ohio. Walk through the glass doors to the right of our window, and take the elevator to the second floor. Then, we're just around the corner! Parking is available at meters or in the surface lot or garage across the street. Be sure to give yourself enough time to find a spot!

Dress fitting appointments are 30 minutes

Depending on if you are trying styles before you decide which to purchase and how many people are attending, we've reserved either 30, 60, or 90 minutes JUST for you. (We should have confirmed how much time you have when we finalized your date and time!) Please call or text us if you are running late, so we can be sure we can still accommodate you!

Bring heels to get the full bridesmaid dress experience

What to Bring

We don't provide shoes during try ons, so bring some heels to get the full effect. It helps to determine how much will end up being hemmed OR if we need to order your dress with extra length. If you plan to wear flats, you can leave your heels at home!

Make Yourself a List

If you're selecting from a few different dresses during the appointment, it helps to have a list of styles you want to try before you come in. Follow us on Instagram and check out the designer's collection on our website and their website to make a list.

Reschedule your dress purchase appointment

Need to Cancel or Reschedule?

Don't forget our cancellation policy requires at least 24 hours notice, or else we may charge a $50 fee. Just keep in touch with us. If we hear from you the day of your appointment to reschedule, we will waive the fee. If we don't, we will charge you, but don't sweat! You may use the $50 towards your future dress purchase.

Gilded Social fits plus size and expecting mothers for dresses

We dig curves here.

Our #gildedtribes come in all shapes and sizes. We're super proud that we have at least one plus-sized sample gown for every line we carry, so most everyone is able to try something on to feel the designer's cut. We are also able to accommodate pregnant, trying to get pregnant, or postpartum gals. Let us know if that could apply to you!

Friendly puppy Chewy

And this is Chewy

Our sweet little {hypo-allergenic} shop dog loves napping under dresses, playing with kiddos, and chasing squirrels in the park. He's usually in the shop on weekdays and occasionally on the weekends. If that would cause any issue for you, don't hesitate for a minute to tell us.

Thank you, again, for thinking of Gilded Social to outfit your fancy occasion!

We'll see you so soon!
