After having lived in Italy and also traveling there for over 25 years, my deep respect of and love for Italian design was developed. Think about it for a moment. Italian clothing, jewelry, shoes and purses, cars, art, palaces and villas, antiquity, wine and food is the most beautiful in the world. They lead the world in design and have for thousands of years dating back to the Etruscans who were the earliest known inhabitants of Italy along the shores and lakes just north of Rome. Now finally my own wedding dress dreams are coming true and Dolce Vita Bridal is proud to announce that soon we'll carry some beautiful and elegant Italian wedding gowns. Please see our business Facebook page to learn just a little more or call Sheila at 502-749-2572.

I found a dress that I fell in love with the first time that I went to Sheila. Unfortunately when it came time to order it, the designer had gone out of business. Sheila worked by my side the entire time to help me find the perfect dress and we did! I loved it more than the first one! She has the best prices in town and a wonderful selection!

I am so happy with my experience at Dolce Vita Bridal Salon. A month after I got engaged I found a beautiful dress on sale for $300 off the rack at their store. It was my size and style, and I was very happy with it.

Months later, just a few months before my wedding, I had grown to despise the dress. I hadn't lost the weight I had wanted to and had to wear a corset to look good in it. I went in to Dolce Vita Bridal in tears. I didn't want to squeeze into a corset on my hot outdoor wedding day.

Sheila and the other girls calmed me down and helped me pick out some other dresses to try on. The first dress I tried on was PERFECT. I cried, which I had not done with my last dress. The details matched my wedding theme, and it was a new design that had not been in the store the last time I shopped. I didn't even try on any more dresses.

Sheila allowed me to EXCHANGE my old dress for the new one, which helped me afford the new dress!

The selection, service, and staff at EVERY other bridal salon in Louisville does not come close to Dolce Vita Bridal Salon. If you want a harmonious, quality, and affordable experience shopping for your wedding dress, don't even try the competition. Dolce Vita is the place to go. YOU WON'T REGRET IT!!!

I am actually the mother of the groom. Dolce Vita helped me to find the perfect dress for the occasion. I went in there with no idea of what to get. They had me try on several and I mean serveral dresses. Then they had me narrow it down to three. Then I was able to try them on and pick my final dress. They were very helpful. They were so kind and made me just as important as the bride. I would return there again.

The ring my husband got for me was from Dolce Vita Bridal Shop of Louisville, and it was a complete surprise. I didn't know he ordered it, but he told me afterwards. From the ring itself, I would have to say that it is a very beautiful and classy ring, looks very high quality.
