I may be biased but my dress was absolutely gorgeous. It was a princess ballgown and on the day of my wedding I never felt so beautiful. Sue and Connie both helped me customize my dress. I did loose 40 lbs after ordering my dress and I know it was extremely difficult to alter the dress afterwards, but they did it beautifully. It took about 7 fittings to complete my dress and Gildas was very flexible and accomodating throughout the entire process. Gildas has the credibility and has been around for a very long time. They have a beautiful selection of dresses to choose from and they treat their customers like family. They give suggestions and advice, but never try to dissuade you from what you want to wear on your special day.

I first came to Gilda's because my aunt had gotten her wedding dress here and I had a lot of pressure from family to come here to get my wedding dress. Pf course I had my own places that I wanted to go to but in the end I ended up finding my dress at Gilda's and it was BEAUTIFUL!! They were so accommodating and so helpful and I loved that when I would go I felt like their attention was on me, that was something that was important to me because they really took the time to fix my dress and make sure everything was perfect! They even volunteered to come do my bustle for me at the venue because it was very complex, but my sister was able to handle it, but just them offering was very nice! I would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone in search of their dream dress!

My dress was perfect! Sue really did a great job helping me pick it out and customizing it. She and her team were so knowledgeable about their vendors, inventory and just how certain things would look and come together once complete. And they were so attentive, you felt at home, unlike many other boutiques. My bridesmaids dresses looked great as well, only a few small issues with the custom straps not fitting just right on wedding day.

Where do I begin...the professionalism and talent of all employees in addition to the exceptional prices of their collections make Gilda's Bridal a true hidden gem. Located in the heart of the city of Fall River, the mother daughter duo who own and run Gilda's Bridal truly treat you like family. The work of the seamstresses is breathtaking. The team at Gilda's designed and created a lined sleeve complete with rhinestone buttons from the extra material after cutting a floor length gown to tea length. The result was a amazing Mother of the Groom dress that looked better than the designer's original.
Also, the staff at Gilda's fixed a botched alteration job for my bridesmaid's dress in less than 24 hours and for only $20! My dress had gone from falling to the floor huge to taken in so much that I could not zip it in the chest area. The original seamstress apologized for her error and simply stated they was nothing she could do other than add a little hook and stitch. Upon hearing my dilemma, Gilda's staff came to the rescue and the dress fit perfectly. Thanks to the ladies of Gilda's Bridal for preventing a wedding fashion disaster.
P.s. Gilda'a stocks all sizes and styles from current trends to classics. I highly recommend them to anyone.

Our wedding was fantastic and we have to thank everyone at Gilda's for making this day THE most special and wonderful day of our lives. Being a same sex couple, and male, we went to Gilda's with likely a unique request.
From the moment we walked in, we knew that we were in the right place. Suzanne and her staff greeted us cordially, listened to our needs, and immediately assured us that what we thought was impossible, was not! We requested that a man's vest, bow-tie, and tie be made from the train of my mother-in-law's 65 years old satin wedding dress. Measurements were taken, plans were made, and before we knew it, we had the most beautiful, precision-made garments. We will always be grateful to Gilda's for their outstanding quality of work, superlative customer service, and personal attention so uncommon today. Anytime we are in Fall River, we will always stop in to visit our new friends and say hello at Gilda's Place of Bridals. Thank you so very much!
Others have it right: phenomenal, amazing, comfortable, caring--all fitting descriptive words for Gilda's.

I had a wonderful experience at Gilda's. The day I found my dress, I had just about had it with trying on dresses and the owner (Sue) encouraged me to try one more on. Well, of course that ended up being the dress I picked. It was significantly lower than my budget (score!), came in on time and alterations were included.

I also ordered my bridesmaids dresses through Gilda's and I was no easy client! I had chosen a discontinued dress in a discontinued color and wanted to change the fabric to taffeta! I was nervous that when they came in, they weren't going to be right, or there was going to be some type of problem. Well there wasn't, everything went smoothly and alterations were also included for my girls! The seamstress there actually made my flowergirl's dress (for a very reasonable price) and it came out amazing!

The only reason I gave them 4.5/5 for 'responsiveness' was because occasionally I called during normal business hours and nobody answered the phone and I had to leave a message, wait for a call back, etc. And with 'quality of service', the only hiccup was the day I went to pick up my dress it wasn't ready (they were still pressing it) and I had to come back an hour later...other than that, they were absolutely fantastic and a pleasure to work with! Sooooooo patient, very honest and wonderfully kind!!

Gilda's Place of Bridals responded with the following comments:

Jackie: In response to your cons, unfortunately sometimes we are with customers and are not able to pick up calls at that very moment. On our voicemail we ask you to leave non urgent messages and we will return them as soon as possible usually within 48 hrs and if urgent to call back. In regards to the dress not ready for pick up, we schedule pick-up times and ask that if you choose to come in any earlier to call in advance first. There are times we have many weddings in a single weekend and are not able to accomodate earlier pick-up times than scheduled.We thank you for your review and will continue to work on improving our customer needs. It was a pleasure to work with you and we wish you a very successful marriage.

I have been to Gild'as before and knew for my wedding I would go back. However Gilda's closed for a bit and I was extremely sad it was right after my engagement. I bought a dress at Running of the Brides and had no idea who I would trust to alter it...until I heard that Gilda's was re-opening! I brought my dress in, and though I didn't buy it for them, they were more than happy to alter it. And did a fabulous job! It was not an easy skirt to hem, and it was not an easy bustle to make. The woman working on the dress would not quit until it was just right, and it came out perfect! I ordered all 6 bridesmaids dresses from Gilda's and the alterations came out just as good, in most cases the girls only had to go for one fitting!

I had a dress that I had purchased elsewhere... but I needed the zipper changed into a corset back.
I brought it to Gilda's & within just a few days, thay had changed the back... matching it perfectly. It looked as if the dress was created as a corset.
They also did some minor alterations for me, (moving straps, creating a bustle) that came out just perfect.
I looked and felt beautiful on my wedding day.

From the first visit to the last, I was given the full attention of the sales women helping me. They were so honest with all the dresses / accessories / shoes I tried on - that I was confident in the choices I made. On the first visit, I had requested dresses without corset backs, without any glittery details and I didn't want strapless... they brought me all the dresses they had that met the criteria. After trying them all, they asked if would be willing to try just 1 dress outside the criteria... I figured, I'd gone thru so many dresses, it wouldn't hurt to put on one more... I was in love! I ended up with a strapless dress, with a corset back, and a small glittery detail on the front and back. I could not be happier with my dress! Gilda's was amazing to work with and so helpful with all the other details - even recommending a photograpther
