The Story

The Story

Some brides really leave a mark. Kristen is one of them. This sweetest, most beautiful bride came to us after a long, discouraging search. These are the gals we are determined to style MOST. The ones just waiting for magic.


Kristen shopped during our one of very first Kelly Faetanini trunk shows and said YES to a now all time favorite gown. The gorgeous open back is legendary! But this style definitely takes guts of steel to wear, so we requested a few customizations that would make her wear a little easier. To this day, I couldn’t be more humbled or grateful for her faith in Kelly and me to get this right for her! 


But come Meet the Dress moment, she was still unsure she could pull it off. Mary Ellen and I were determined to help her see in herself what we saw! So we gave her a couple of serious confidence boosts throughout the process, and abracadabra there appeared a knockout finale by wedding day. Witnessing Kristen’s transformation from popping confetti through getting that absolutely PERFECT fit was just priceless. There couldn’t have been a soul at her wedding who didn’t have their eyes on her the entire time, and I’m certain it was because Kristen just radiated confidence with every step she took in that epic dress.


It’s hard to strike the perfect balance between sweet and stunning, and this gal DID it. THAT takes having faith in yourself, and I couldn’t be more honored to play a small part in helping her find her absolute BEST self for her wedding day. DANG it showed. And that, my friends, is MY WHY.

The Review

“I would highly recommend shopping at Gilded Social for all things bridal. After months of searching for a wedding dress with no luck, I was starting to feel discouraged. Finally coming to Gilded Social was a breath of fresh air. Tanya is amazing and very passionate about her work. She spent time asking me questions to determine my style and desired look for my wedding day. She went above and beyond to help me find a beautiful wedding dress that was perfect for me. She spent extra time helping me make personal customizations to make sure I felt completely comfortable in my dress. Mary Ellen did an outstanding job altering my wedding dress and it was tailored to my size perfectly. I can’t thank them both enough!”
