I am copy/pasting my review from Yelp because Yelp filtered my review out - I suspect the salon marked it as spam or complained about my review.

I visited GiGi in November to find my wedding dress. When we first arrived, there was a drilling sound somewhere in the salon and no one there to greet us, even though a bell sounded every time my mom and I walked in the door. We walked in repeatedly and searched the store for someone to help us for twenty minutes before we finally found the door to the break room and knocked on it. Our consultant appeared to have forgotten about our appointment and was eating lunch.

I was not impressed by the service my consultant gave us. She was visibly disappointed in my $4,000 budget and only brought out 2 dresses I could try on that met my tastes (I said I did not like lace but she tried to push it on me). I pulled a good number of sample sale dresses for myself, though.

Every time I tried on a dress and said that I liked it, she said, "You should just buy it." Didn't tell me I looked nice, didn't ask me questions - just told me to buy it. I was completely put off.

I loved a Jenny Packham sample dress I tried on and would have bought it had the service been better. I went to another salon with fantastic service (in another city) and bought a different dress.

Overall, I was happy with the selection of sample gowns, but that's really it for the positives. The service was extremely disappointing.

Gigi of Mequon needs a serious personality overhaul. My mother and I have never has a worse shopping experience. The staff were condescending, snotty and just not helpful. I would drive to Chicago before purchasing even a pair of tights from this vendor.

First of all, I have to say that the dress was beautiful. After that, my entire experience with Gigi's was terrible. They treated me very rudely from the beginning and if I didn't fall in love with the dress right away, I would definitely have gone somewhere else. The lady helping me was very condescending and made the whole excitement of finding "the" dress very unpleasant. The dress came in way past its due date and they finally called to tell me that it came in damaged. So they had to get a new one made. The new dress was months late coming in and I had to get the alterations done quickly. Very little had to be altered, but I had to have several dress fittings because it was never quite right. It seems that between my 1st and 2nd fitting- nothing was done! Then the dress was not ready until the day before the wedding. They said they are really busy- with it being wedding season and all. As my bridesmaids were zipping up my dress before my ceremony- the zipper broke away from the fabric and buttons started falling off as they were trying to fix it! The ceremony was delayed as they tried to pin it back together. It lasted through the ceremony (thankfully my veil covered the damaged parts), but broke again right after. So for pictures, I had to have my bridesmaids hold it together. It wasn't working, so we just went inside and I had some relatives sew me into the dress. At this point they also put up the bustle and it broke within minutes!!! We tried fixing it and we ending up tying it into the back of my sash, which had to be retied often. I have been to a ton of weddings and the bustle breaks often, so I asked specifically to have extra strings or button or hooks or anything to have it hold up. My wedding day was wonderful except for this. Also, my Mom got her Mother-of-the-Bride dress there and they also screwed up her alterations and she had to pick up her dress on the day of the wedding! I do not recommend GiGi's to anyone!

GiGi's is very nice, high end salon. After trying on over 70 dresses (!) I was never quit seeing what I wanted and finally went to GiGi's and found my beautiful Lazaro. The staff was very attentive. I ordered my dress well in advance and it came in months earlier than expected. I also got my earrings from there... They have lots of unique, beautiful pieces in their shop to accessorize your gown. The only thing to be aware of is that they do carry high end designers so be aware of what to expect with prices ahead of time. You get what you pay for though, and I absolutely LOVE my dress!

I found my wedding dress here and I wasn't even meaning to.
Shortly after getting engaged, I was back home in Milwaukee visiting my family. I live in DMV area now, so I figured I would find my dress out here somewhere or even NYC since I can drive there. I really only went dress shopping in Milwaukee because I thought I should attempt to do the process with my mom first, even if we didn't find it together.
The day before, we went to one shop and found a beautiful dress at a great price-point, but something about it didn't have me sold yet. It wasn't MY dress... at least I didn't feel like that. I had them hold it and tell them that I would be back the next day if I didn't find something with my mom at Gigi.
When I called Gigi to make an appointment, however, they told me that they weren't taking appointments for that day. I was confused, but ready to take it as a sign that I should get the other dress at the last store I went to. The lady who answered the phone at Gigi's went on to tell me that it was their sample sale time and that was why they weren't taking appointments. Instead, she said that I could just come in.
My mom and I arrived with my three cousins (who were looking for bridesmaid dresses at the time). I tried on dress after dress, until I tried on THE dress. I didn't have that moment where you cry or sob "THIS IS IT!" But I knew it was THE dress because I didn't want to take it off. I was actually making excuses to keep it on. I walked from one mirror to the other in it over and over again because I realized I was stalling. My mom liked the dress a lot, but I think her heart was still with the dress I had seen the day before. My heart, however, was taken with this dress - the details of crystal and beading at the bodice were just the touch of elegance that I wanted... and although I always thought I wanted a lace dress and never anything poofy, in the end, I had a little bit of poof. lol! It was so worth it.
Save for the chest area being too big, it fit like a glove. I bought it on the spot (no need to try and think this one over) and had it altered later. Altering proved difficult, but it was done in the end. All and all, I would highly recommend Gigi of Mequon during their sample sales. I've never been there for an appointment, so I can't comment on the personalized customer service. I had only limited help. My dress did all the work ;)

Oh my goodness, words cannot express how happy GiGi's made me! Other stores I had been to had made me feel uncomfortable over being a size 18, but GiGi's made me feel absolutely wonderful! We found the perfect dress! I had the total "Say Yes to the Dress" moment. Every return for fitting was wonderful! I had lost 3 dress sizes which meant a lot of work for them, but the dress fit perfectly the day of and I received so many compliments! My mom has already determined that both of my younger sisters will be shopping there for their dresses!

Gigi of Mequon is a nice boutique with a good number of styles of bridal gowns to choose from. I purchased my gown, a Liancarlo silk strapless/beaded gown there for my fall wedding. The staff was attentive without being pushy, but I felt like because I was shopping solo and did not have an entourage (bridesmaid, mother, etc.) with me I was ignored in favor of larger groups. Also, I don't think they were very knowledgeable about my particular dress because they recommended I order a crinoline when my dress was already fitted with one and not intended to accommodate an additional one. I was skeptical at first, but since the back of the dress was beaded, etc. it seemed reasonable to think something was needed to flatten it out just enought for the design to show. Moreover, they did not measure me for the un-necessary crinoline correctly and it was much too large even if it could be incorporated under the dress. I ended up having my seamstress cut it up and sew some of the netting onto the crinoline already in the dress in the back -- helping the train design to show but not overwhelming the dress (or me!) with poufiness.

I would visit the shop again only I would do a little investigation and research first to know more about the designer and how the dress you prefer is supposed to fit/look. That way even if you want it altered you will know the parameters of the dress and will not buy unnecessary items.

I absolutely adored my experience at Gigi\'s for wedding dress shopping. I came in on a quiet Friday with my mom and aunt to do the first search for dresses. It turns out that I only needed one visit because the first dress I tried on became mine. The saleslady was attentive in listening to my desires for a dress and she completely delivered on it. I enjoyed having the owner\'s dogs run around during the appointment as well. It gave a great family feeling to the whole shopping experience. \r\n\r\nThroughout my fittings here, I had an enjoyable experience with the saleswomen and seamstresses. Every time I visited, I knew I was in good hands for my dress experience. I can\'t say enough good things about Gigi\'s. My overall experience was great with them from picking out the dress to fittings to wearing it on my wedding day. I can\'t thank them enough for such a great experience.

The dress I ordered from them had buttons all the way down the back...9 of them fell off by the end of the night. I also at times felt like I was a bother to them...instead of an important customer. I loved my dress and the girls dresses, but the customer service wasn't where I expected it to be.

I ordered a beautiful silk dress and overall my experience was good. My dress almost didn't come in and arrived a week before the wedding. I ordered it 6 months prior to the event. Service is very good and I worked with the owner's daughter who was very customer friendly. Alterations were reasonable and the selection was great.
