After traveling to many locations to try on dresses, I took the advice of my wedding planner, Tzo Ai, and went to Gabriella. The selection was very, very good. The quality of service is high but also dependent on the individual sales person you work with and there is a wide range of personalities there. We loved working with Jackie and Susan Ruddie, who did alterations. The dress was altered to perfection.

I had heard great things about Gabriella New York from friends so I made an appointment there as soon as I got engaged and booked my venue. I did not expect to find my dress at my first appointment - I ended up not going to any other bridal salons! The salon is warm and intimate and there is a carefully curated selection of designer dresses that manage to be stylish, classic and unique all at once. My consultant Carleen understood exactly what type of dress I was looking for and helped me find my dream gown by an Israeli designer (Flora) that I had never heard of! I tried on a total of 5 dresses and ended up with the very first one that we picked out. I was incredibly lucky that there was a Flora trunk show that weekend - my dress was in the salon for that weekend only and was not available anywhere else in New York! Everything in the salon is beautiful - I also purchased a custom made Sara Gabriel veil and Jenny Packham jeweled headpiece that were the perfect finishing touches to my wedding day look. My seamstress Susan was excellent with the alterations and I totally trusted her judgment. The entire experience was amazing and personalized, definitely the most fun part of the wedding planning! I LOVE this salon!!

I ended up getting the first dress I tried on at the first salon I went to which was Gabriella's. This was not a coincidence. The stylists at Gabriella's listened to the ideas I had and the look I wanted and picked out the perfect dress. I love this bridal salon, everything they have is beautiful and when you come in here they treat you like you're the only client they have. I also cannot say enough about their seamstress Susan and their entire alterations department. My dress was mostly illusion lace and was very delicate and difficult to alter but Susan and her team did it with true expertise and it was perfect!
I do think it's important to know before going in that Gabriella's carries high end designers and dresses start at $3,500-4,000 here. I didn't realize that before I went in, happened to find my dream dress and ended up spending far more than I budgeted for the dress. In the end it didn't matter because it was exactly what I wanted and was perfect, but it is good to set expectations before you go!

Matthew and everyone at Gabriella made the dress shopping process so easy and enjoyable for me. They have a beautiful selection of gowns and are one of the few that carry Jenny Packham in NY. I went 3 times before finally deciding on my dress (one that I had tried on during the 1st trip!) and everyone was so helpful and accommodating. Matthew was a delight to work with - he encouraged me to try dresses that I never thought to look at and he gave great feedback. Overall, a wonderful experience.

When I first got engaged I immediately started searching for a dress. Gabriella was my first stop since they carried Lihi Hod. The ginger lilly was the first dress I tried on and the one I bought. During my search they helped answer all my questions and never pressured me to buy immediately. I went to multiple other stores and tried on so many dresses but I knew the entire time that nothing would compare to that first dress. Lihi Hod as the shop take 40 measurements all over your body then creates the dress custom to your shape. Natalie took my measurements and when the dress arrived it fit perfectly! I barely needed any alterations, just the bustle and adding in cups. I went in for my three fittings which at the end of the day was not even necessary since it fit so well. I felt so beautiful the day of my wedding. The staff at Gabriella are so professional and knowledgeable. The pricing of the gowns is on the higher side but I think it was worth every penny.

I found my dream dress at Gabriella and Natalie was wonderful to work with. My dress was not what I had originally envisioned for myself, but Natalie encouraged me to look through the racks and try on whatever caught my eye. I'm so glad I did! I ended up going back for my veil at a trunk show there and got a bracelet for the day of at the same time. Natalie was lovely and walked me and my mom through the delivery and fittings procedure. They have a beautiful selection of dresses!

I went into Gabriella with an idea of what I wanted, and my stylist helped me find amazing choices that fit with that vision! They have a great selection (Legends by Romona Keveza is my absolute favorite - look at her especially if you have a pear-shaped silhouette like me and want to feel like a classy princess) as well. Beautiful store on the LES with very friendly help. I mentioned that there was a dress I liked by Romona that they didn't have (because it is from several year ago), and the stylist told me they could still order it for me! Great, friendly service at a very nice boutique with great selections!

I worked with two amazing consultants at this bridal salon! They were so helpful and not pushy at all. I went back three times before I found "the dress", and they were so polite and accommodating every time. I also bought my accessories through them :).

Gabriella Bridal Salon was a wonderful place to purchase my dress and arrange for tailoring. The shop is intimate and not chaotic. Matthew helped me pick out the most gorgeous dress and I ended up getting to meet the designer, Kelly Faetanini, who was such a sweetheart. I had only one hiccup, which was that the original French bustle the in-house seamstress had designed came apart when we did a trial run a few days before the wedding, and the American bustle she created afterwards did not really stand up either - the bridal attendant had to safety pin it up. Everything else was perfect - I felt beautiful on the day of and will treasure the gown forever

The dress I found at Gabriella was the dress of my dreams. It was so perfect. The service when I was shopping for dresses was fantastic; they were attentive and great to work with. They listened to what I was looking for and gave great recommendations.

After purchasing the dress, they seemed to want to have nothing to do with me, however. I had all of my fittings scheduled with the designer so I didn't have much of a need to go to the boutique until it was time to pick up my dress and veil. Before my fittings, I wanted to schedule a time to come in and try the dress back on to test undergarments so I was prepared for my fittings. I went through the booking tool and reserved a time. When they called to confirm and I explained what my appointment was for, they were not pleased and said that was very uncommon. I was able to negotiate with them and explain that I needed to see the dress again to test undergarments, given that my dress was made to measure. I felt very unwelcome at that undergarment testing fitting.

My final experience was picking up my finished dress. As I mentioned, it was a made to measure dress so I never got to see the finalized product until picking it up. I picked up the dress 1 week before the wedding date and of course wanted to try on the finished dress to ensure I didn't need to contact the designer for any last minute tweaks. They fought with me, stating they never allow you to try on final dresses without a seamstress in-house. Eventually they let me open the dress and try it on but it was a process to get them to do this.

For the amount we spent on the dress and for the great reputation of the salon, I expected better service. I would only recommended this vendor because of the quality of designers they have at the salon.
