How to find Gilded Social and where to park for your bridesmaid dress appointment.PNG

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!

We have a Gilded Social dressing room reserved for you for 30 minutes.PNG

All Yours for 30 Minutes

We've reserved 30 minutes for you to try on the dress (or dresses if you're picking between a few), get measured, and fill out our dress order form. If you're a little early or late, within a half hour of your appointment time, just come on in! We'll be ready for you. Outside of that window, please be sure to call or text us so we can still try to accommodate you.

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!

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!

This is Chewy the Gilded Social shop dog.PNG

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!
