Gilded Social Bride
The Story

The Story

I remember exactly where I was when I first talked to Carson - in line for Rise of the Resistance at Hollywood Studios ha. She was in a panic. The dress she’d planned for her wedding in TWO WEEKS was no longer an option. She’d found one of our dresses on Still White that she was ready to buy but for a couple of fit questions. After a little back and forth, we realized we were both in Columbus, so we booked her an appointment ASAP to try her on in person. 


But sadly, another bride bought the dress literally the day before her appointment. 


Lucky for her, I had a similar (and IMHO, better) dress that was also on sale, and I told her if she was willing to keep the appointment - I’d sell it to her for the same price as the other dress. She came in, tried her on, and said YES. Didn’t even need alterations! (We did get her in for a quick clean to get her looking totally fresh, though. Still in the nick of time.) This dress was meant to be hers. Kinda like MAGIC.

The Review

“Gilded Social was beyond amazing and helpful through my entire dress buying process!! I was not in love with my original wedding gown purchased elsewhere and they helped me find the PERFECT dress TWO WEEKS prior to my wedding! Talk about fast customer service, and the gown was dry cleaned within a couple days and ready for pickup with plenty of time for the big day. I could not recommend them enough, it was such a wonderful experience! :)”
