With a background in costume design and pattern making, the Gown Lady began her career in dressmaking while in college. When she decided that it was time to open her very own bridal salon she knew her mission was simple; Professionalism in a warm and friendly environment, attention to detail, expert care and never make a promise that you cannot keep! Serving a full figured clientele was also a must - it's her passion!

The Bridal Cottage was established in 1993 as a full service wedding salon. We have assisted many brides and their wedding parties over the years and we have worked very hard to gain the trust and respect of our community and clients from as far as Russia, Central and South America, Africa, England, Spain and Trinidad.

Our efforts continue to reap benefits in so many ways: we've gained wonderful lasting friendships, we've given back to our community and we have donated wedding gowns which are sold at auction and the funds used to build a school over seas. We have also received the following awards: Best Bridal Shop, Mid-Hudson Valley Readers Choice Awards, 2003 & 2008, Recipient, Casablanca Bridal Silver Award, Northeast, 2008, 2009 and 2010.

The Bridal Cottage is a place where clients quickly become friends and lasting memories abound. Read less

I had a good selection of dresses to choose from. With time and patience I was able to find the right dress for an affordable price. At my fittings she took the time to make me feel special and give some advice.

From the first time I stepped into the Bridal Cottage I knew it was going to be the place I found my dress. Sure enough, 6 dresses (that I picked) later, Gladys picked one for me to try and it was the one! She had a great sense of what I wanted (but didn't know it) and found me the perfect dress. My mom and I loved Gladys and my mom got her dress there too! Gladys was always great in accommodating our schedules for appointments (which was challenging at times, because I live in CT). The hem of my dress had a very complicated lace trim and I couldn't have been happier with the alteration work that Gladys did. I highly recommend Gladys and the Bridal Cottage!

Gladys was absolutely amazing to work with. I originally found my dress at another location but had not heard good things about their alterations department so I went to Gladys. She ordered the dress even though it was not a designer she typically carried after she borrowed a sample of the dress from another shop so I could try it on and she could size me correctly in it. Months after I ordered my dress and it came in, I found out I was pregnant and would be 5 months along at my wedding. Gladys took on the task of completely redoing my dress and changing it from a fit and flare to an empire waist. I met her on a biweekly basis to get measured, then weekly, then daily and every single time she was a complete doll. The day I picked up my dress I was still in love with it and surprisingly it didn't break the bank. Most of my bridesmaids had their alterations done by her and had nothing but wonderful things to say.

I had previously met Gladys when one of my friends used her for her dress and her bridesmaid dresses. I decided to also use her for my wedding gown, as well as for my bridesmaid's dresses. She is wonderful to work with and has an amazing eye for detail. Unlike some other shops, she allows you to have fun while you are there. She is easy to talk to, honest, fair, and provides quality services at reasonable prices. I recommend this quaint dress shop to anyone in the area that is looking for a beautiful dress, as well as wonderful customer service.

I really loved a Carolina Herrera gown, and I asked if it is possible to make some changes to the dress, the consultant was so nice about it and made a couple of calls to make sure my requests were doable!!! I was very surprised and touched with her level of effort.

We CAN NOT Say enough THANK YOUS!!!!
Congratulations to Jennifer and Rob on winning the grand prize at Sunday’s 9/23/12 bridal show which includes a Wedding Dress give away compliments of Bridal Cottage.

I will tell every bride to go here!! Gladys was just perfect from beginning to end!! She works with you in so many ways; First I LOVE how she let's you know (very kindly) what dress looks great on you and what dress does not ... and explains why!! Then she helps you put together you dream dress!! She took the top of one dress I loved and the bottom of another dress I loved and made them a dress!! I had a ONE OF A KIND WEDDING DRESS!! She also loves when you bring people with you to the fitting!! When i first went we had 8 of us!! The detail she puts in making sure your dress fits is amazing!! She only has kind words and thoughts for you ... even if it's a bad day for a fitting!! The personal note on my huge pink dress bag was just the touch you would expect from her and not a big store or one that thinks they have it made here in the Hudson Valley! GO TO BRIDAL COTTAGE!!

P.S sorry for the late review!! it's 7/18/13 and we got married on 3/16/13.
