Best bridal store in NYC. I am SO glad I came to Wedding Atelier. I had the best experience working with Jessica. She really listened to what I wanted and found me the most beautiful dress I've ever seen. I feel lucky to have gone through this experience with her I recommend this place to everyone.
Awesome Customer Service. Thanks to Jessica at Wedding Atelier I found my dream dress! She was so helpful, supportive & nice and worked hard for me during my brief visit to NYC. I'd recommend Wedding Atelier as the number one NY wedding store to visit. Thanks!!
Very Happy Customer.
This shop was the best of all the places I went to, including Kleinfelds and Mark Ingram. I would say the only other shop that even came close was Amsale.
Wedding Atelier is clean, small and carries a handful of excellent designers. They will work with you to add details or take away details from your dress. I recommend going early in the day- you'll have the whole place to yourself!
Great experience from beginning to end!. I bought my dress at Wedding Atelier from a lovely stylist named Jenna. From the moment we walked in we were greeted warmly and given slippers. After trying on a couple of dresses, I quickly fell in love with an Alvina Valenta dress. Jenna was very upfront with me about what could and couldn't be done to the dress as far as customizations. She let me and my sisters take some time to sit and think about it and I couldn't have made a better decision. I needed my dress in kind of a rush and they delivered! My dress arrived a few days ahead of time and my seamstress was very accomodating. Jenna was there to help me through the fittings and she was dead on with everything. My dress was perfect on my wedding day. I can't say enough about this place! Wonderful!
THE BEST SALON; MUST GO HERE!!!!. I don't know where to begin. Wedding Atelier saved me! I worked with manager Carrie and mai ( the best seamstress ever). I walked in there facing a total dress emergency less than 2 weeks before my wedding. The dress I had orginially ordered at another wedding salon was horrible and in my opinion nothing I could wear. I stumbled upon wedding altelier without an appointment and explained my dress emergency. The staff was beyond helpful and encouraging. I must have tried on 10-15 dresses and found the one! so beautiful. It was strapless but Mai made me the most beautful matching cap sleeve lace jacket that completed the dress. In basically 1 week and 1 day I walked out of there with my perfect dress thanks to the wonderful women who are at this salon. Carried promised me the quick turnaround and she delivered right on time and everything was just PERFECT. This store changed my whole emotional state leading up to my wedding. They are the best and I loved my dress and received soooo many complements on it at my wedding. Unbelievable customer service and Carrie has an unbelievable sense for style and what does/doesn't work for everyone. the best. words truly cannot describe how wonderful this place is and how much they helped me. THE BEST!!!! go here for your dress!!!!
Do yourself a favor and dont go to this shop. I found it in the internet and I wish I had read some reviews before. I have the worst shopping experience ever, even if it was probably the most important dress of my life. Where do I start? By saying that on my first appointment a girl was crying in her wedding gown, and they didn’t seem to be able to calm her down. That should have been a BIG SIGN FOR ME TO RUN AWAY but unfortunately I bought my dress there to a very nice saleswoman called Andrea. Andrea was not there for my second appointment or ever after--she was fired. And I didnt find anyone nicer after that. My dress arrived in time, but since the sample was so old, the fabric on the new one had a different texture and color, and a HUGE SEAM from the underskirt was showing. It was a big problem, which I marked to May--a very smiley but completely clueless seamstress-- and disgusting Carrie/Julie...manager and sales woman respectively. They told me they could take care of it by ironing it (yeah sure) or adding a piece of fabric (literally a 30 cm under skirt, which made 3 seams to show instead of 1). All through my fittings it became evident that they couldn’t fix it, and then it was when they started saying that it wasn’t their fault, it was the designer's (Cymbeline) and that they couldn’t do anything about it. May was also inept in pulling up the train, so I ended having to cut my train, which I later regretted. To make a long story short: I almost bought a new dress, but in the end I took it to an expert seamstress who actually had to build a new skirt to solve the problem. I threw away the 500 dollars they charged for alterations and had to pay on top of that. Furthermore, I can not explain the level of anguish I went through because of this crappie place. Lesson learned: don’t go here, ever. And if you buy a dress it is better to deal with the designer directly than with intermediaries as this place is
After going into Pronovias and being completely dissatisfied with anything coupled with the" we don't do alterations, we don't do extra beading" line... i proceeded to WA with little faith...
As was ABSOLUTELY SURPRISED.. My wedding is in April 09 and was in the store in Sept. i was attended to by a FANTASTIC lady called JESSICA who makes every bride feel wonderful...
I completely explained my concept to her and the limitations that we were faced with being i was flying in from Nigeria, Africa and would only be making 1 more trip to NY for my fitting so i needed everything done as quickly as possible..
I found a gress that was OK... but by the time Jessica was done with it, it was my DREAM DRESS... She completely knows her stuff so she gets you very quickly and is quick to go and bring samples very similar to what you are talking about.. I ended up picking my dress on the first day of looking... That left me with plenty of time for my shoes and evrything else..
Jessica proceeded to email me every few weeks keeping me updated on the progress of my veil, headpiece, dress and evrything else..
Getting to NY in Feb and having literally 36hrs for my fitting, they were wonderful.. I got in bright and early and everything was out waiting for me.. All the alterations that could be done without me were done and all i had to do was fit my dress... They were very accomodating as i went in for a 10am appt, went back for a 6pm final fit and picked up the next day at 12pm...
Wedding Atelier are completely worth every extra cents u pay...
I would recomend tham to my friends and family...
Beautiful wedding dresses. This is a great place to start out your dress search. They have lots of styles and designers, and prices ranging from $450-$10,000! (the under $1000 are mainly samples and promos, fyi). Debra, my attendant, was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. Best of all, I found my perfect dress here!
The BEST Bridal Gown Shop. I had a great experience at Wedding Atelier. From the first time I entered the shop until I picked up my gown it was a most pleasurable event. Firstly, the shop is beautiful- neat, clean, organized, relaxed. They make you take off your shoes so the floor stays clean to help keep the dress samples in good condition. The owner, Carrie, and her staff are so helpful, knowledgable, and easy to work with. They were all accomodating as far as setting up appointments, looking at and trying on gowns and veils, and taking care with fittings to make sure the dress looked its best. The dress selection is top-notch and you will find gowns that you will not see anywhere else in the city! When we realized there was a slight problem with my dress Carrie was very quick to rectify the situation and went above and beyond to make it right. I can not say enough good things about Wedding Atelier and would recommend everyone to buy their wedding gown here.
The most outstanding customer service of any NY bridal salon!.
I recently visited Wedding Atelier at the referral of a friend. My wedding is towards the end of 2009. I am really not ready to purchase but was highly encouraged to make an appointment to start my gown search. I had already visited Kleinfeld and Saks. Tyhe experiences there were neddless to say, lackluster. And I really felt that every appointment I would have thereafter would be the same. I didn't realize that this should actually be a fun experience.
From the moment I stepped through the door to leaving, I felt like I was the center of attention for once. I was greated by the manager who offered me slippers to myself and my mom. I was confused what this was for and then she explained that they care for their dresses so much that they keep them clean by asking people to remove their shoes. Being in spa slippers, already put me inn a relaxing mood! I was then introduced to my stylist who was Grace. I explained to her my style and concern that this was really still the early part of my plannig. I was never once told that I had to buy that day or I needed to hurry up and order. Kleinfeld makes it a point for you to know this! I selected some lovely gowns with my mom. I am planning on going back in Januaary. I have since then, visited 3 other salons. And no one absolutely no one has matched the lovely feeling and pampering I received at wedding atelier. I would highly reccommend this salon to anyone starting the ir wedding gown search that favors personal and intimate service in a calming salon free of pressure.
