Thanks for a great wedding dress experience! I absolutely loved my Casa Blanca gown and easily could have been happy with at least 2-3 other beautiful gowns I tried on. I had great sales service from my 1st trip through my 4th fitting. I literally felt like I had been poured into the dress on my wedding day and so many guests complimented the gown!
(P.S. this review is by Jonathan's wife, Robin : )

I had heard great things about Gambardella’s; however I had a sub-par experience using their salon for my wedding dress. The administration that went into placing the order for my dress turned out to be very unprofessional and disorganized. Despite paying for my dress in full almost a year prior to my wedding date, the store forgot to place the order leaving little time for alternations and unethically leaving me no time to find an alternative option for alterations. After the fact I read other consumer reviews only to find that the store has done this to other customers. It seems that they order dresses late forcing customers to use their alteration services. I would not recommend Gambardella’s for your wedding gown experience. For the amount of money you are spending on this purchase you deserve more.

We came to Gamberdella to look for mother of the bride dresses, and even though we made an appointment, the staff seemed overbooked as though they hadn't expected us there. (There were 2-3 other bridal parties there for bridal and bridesmaid fittings.) The salesperson/seamstress picked out dresses that went against what told her we were interested in and we ended up pulling dresses ourselves. No one checked in on us throughout the visit and we had to alert them that they were leaving. Not the best mother of the bride shopping experience!

When I went in to look for my wedding gown the two women who assisted me were very nice. They did listen to what I described, brought out some very lovely dresses, and even offered to contact the designer to see if they could combine 2 dresses for me. They stated that they would call me back in a couple of days and let me know what the designer said. That was several months ago. I never heard back from them again. Yes, I could have reached out to them after a week or two but I ended up finding a dress somewhere else when our venue fell through and we had to move up the wedding. I also felt somewhat rushed. After about the 4th dress the one woman kept saying 'oh we won't be able to top that!' and made it seem like it wasn't worth trying anymore dresses even though I wasn't exactly sold on the one that they apparently 'couldn't top.' Finally, I didn't like how they seem to have only one sample size (so if you have any sort of curves, it might not fit) which made it harder for me to imagine what the dress would like on me.

I am SO happy I bought my dress from Gamberdella's. It was such a wonderful experience from start to finish. I knew I wanted to look for a dress here since they did an amazing job with my sisters wedding dress and plus when I was in high school they made my classes graduation dress! I went in knowing exactly what I wanted and the stylist who helped pulled a number of options. Now I was looking for a dress with sleeves and was made aware that they had very few for me to try with the sleeve. However, Mary the owner was there, who is super nice, and told me almost any dress could have a sleeve added. Well sure enough I found the perfect dress and had 3/4 lace sleeves added that matched the lace on the rest of the dress. When I tried it on for the first time it fit perfect!! I only needed length taken up and one small adjust in the back but other than that it fit amazing! I could not be more happy with my dress and I received SO many compliments all night which made me feel like a princess. My dress had a big bow in the back too which was such a fun added touch and really complimented my rustic, themed wedding. I am sad that I won't be wearing it again because I loved it so much!!! I will be sure to preserve it though and say nothing but the best about Mary, Eve the seamstress and Gamberdella! Thank you ladies!!!

My dress was perfect. I had the salon to myself during all appointments. The woman helping me could see I wasn't happy after several dresses. She asked if she could go $400 over my budget and she knew it would be the one. She was absolutely right! I didn't consider another dress after that. We also found ways to stay in my budget by the end anyway. My only problem was they promised the dress would be ready in April, then July, then August, 3 weeks before the wedding. I live 2+ hours away and their hours during the week aren't possible with traffic. So I was disappointed how inconvenient the alterations process turned out to be. And my dress was way too loose in the top for the wedding. But the bustle and the way she adjusted the lace for the bustle to fall correctly, was perfect. So I do recommend it. Just a few hick-ups.

The staff at Gamberdella Salon helped my daughter select the perfect wedding gown at a price that was within our budget. After hearing what she had in mind, they brought the exact right gown. In fact, the gown was even more perfect than what she had imagined. The alterations were excellent, true expertise, and everything was ready exactly when they said it would be. They were friendly and professional and understood how special the moment of seeing her in her gown was to all of us. It was a wonderful experience working with them, and the bride looked perfect throughout her wedding day.

I'd been searching for weeks trying to find a gown that wouldn't exceed my minimal budget (which included alterations). When I called Gamberdellas, Mary, the store owner, answered and assured me they would work with my budget to find me a gorgeous gown - and they did! At Gamberdellas, I didn't have to search through racks of dresses (which was a huge relief), rather, Mary and her team listened to what I wanted and pulled dresses for me to try on. Since my mom lives out of state, there was a fair amount of waiting while I snapped and sent pics, but everyone at Gamberdellas was very kind, patient and supportive. One of the last dresses they pulled for me was the one I ended up purchasing. Surprisingly, when I saw it on the hanger I actually really loved it and when I put it on, everything felt right. I was elated I found my dress here because I adore Mary and her team! I highly, highly recommend Gamberdellas.

Gamberdella was the second bridal shop that I went to after having an awful time at the first shop that I went to. I told Mary that I wanted something unique and then she brought out THE dress. It was exactly what I was looking for and more! Eve was a joy to work with for alterations. She did such a beautiful job with all of the details of my dress. I highly recommend Gamberdella for many reasons!!
