Loved buying my dress with Wedding Atelier. Loved my dress and the service. Only thing is, the seamstress didn't do as stellar a job as I had hoped for. Multiple times I walked in for my appointment, and she forgot what she was supposed to have done for me. I mean...come on. Worst part was, on my wedding day, when my sister got me into my dress, she said the work that the seamstress had done (to take my dress in) was showing, and so she had to safety pin that part down. Disappointing and annoying.

I cannot sing the praises enough of Wedding Aterlier and my consultant there, Francesca. After going to another bridal salon and trying on several dresses that I had picked out in magazines, I realized that what I thought would look great on me didn't really fit the bill. I was very discouraged when I got to Wedding Atelier. I described my issue to Francesca and basically told her I didn't know what I wanted anymore. She picked 5 dresses, all of which were completely different and looked great on me. I ended up purchasing one of them. Had I been given a description of this dress, I would never had picked it since it was not what I thought I wanted; however, once I put it on, it looked amazing. I would have never found it on my own. At several other salons, I felt like the consultants just wanted to make a sale. I was a little concerned that Francesca had left before my dress arrived so she would not be there for my fittings. However, my new consultant was great and May, my seamstress, did a great job. I was very happy with my experience there and would recommend them to anyone.

Nothing but 5 stars for Wedding Atelier! Such an amazing/easy experience I had with the entire staff. Holly, my consultant, was super helpful and made me feel so comfortable during the entire appointment. No pressure at all into buying the dress of my dreams! They even matched the price I saw my dream dress in from another store. The first store I saw my dress in, the sample was in horrible shape. But when I saw it at Wedding Atelier, the sample looked like it was in mint condition, a completely different looking dress. The store is spotless and beautified designed. Oh and the seamstresses are phenomenally talented!!! My dress had 23 pick ups in the bustle and I must say looks better bustled than fully let out. Such a talented and professional team all around. I got my dream dress for $2280 (with all alternation costs and taxes) and everyone thought I spent well over 5k. Worth ever penny, especially the experience Wedding Atelier provided.

Hollie! Although she no longer works there she has left an impression on me that I will never forget. Hollie was the first one to really "Pull me in" to a dress so you can truly imagine what it would look like on you. Her smile and laughter were infectious. I really wanted to invite her to our Wedding because 1. She'd be the life of the party and 2. You knew she was genuinely excited for you. Hollie didn't just want to sell you a dress, she wanted to help you find you dream dress.

Another person I would like to mention is May. May was my seamstress. She treats you like a daughter. I just wanted to hug her all the time. She altered my dress to fit like a glove, it was PERFECT.

I Love Everything about Wedding Atelier.

Jessica.....was the best party of my wedding planning. From the moment I walked into the salon, she treated me like I was her own sister, someone she wanted nothing more for but to look and feel perfect, and she would not give up until I accomplished that look and feeling. She entertained my group of varying women with even different tastes and found THE dress for me on the 3rd try. In addition to making me feel like a princess on one of many special days you have planning and executing your wedding, she was beyond available via email and phone any time i needed her and she helped me obtain a swatch of my dress to make a locket for my mother as a wedding day gift, which was beyond perfect. I love her and I love that store. Forget anywhere else, as a New Yorker from birth, you need to go here and no where else.

I have nothing but great things to say about Jessica from Wedding Atelier and their seamtress May! I spent 2 weekends in NYC and during the 1st weekend, I had an appointment with Jessica, she helped me find the dress of my dreams and a bolero for my special day. The 2nd weekend back a few months later, I had scheduled back-to-back fittings, 3 days in a row with Jessica and May. In the end the dress was just PERFECT and my custom bolero made by May to match my dress made my outfit complete. May packed up my dress so I could even take it home with me after the third appointment! I was so impressed with the service we received at Wedding Atelier and felt so comfortable in Jessica's hands. I can't thank her enough for getting me into my perfect dress! It brought out many tears from many guests the day of our wedding.

What a WONDERFUL Boutique Wedding Dress experience I had here! I am SO thankful I booked an appointment with the Wedding Atelier after the NIGHTMARE wedding factory trash experience I had at what I was told was "the best" wedding dress shop in Manhattan (I will not name names, the TV show it has is enough, thanks). EVERY SINGLE PERSON at the Wedding Atelier was helpful and SO sweet! My stylist was Gwen, and she was a gem. She actually made wedding dress shopping FUN and even relaxing. They were even helpful with getting a swatch of fabric to me for my custom hat. The budget we gave was what some houses considered only "mid-range", yet they managed to impress me with the style and quality I was hoping for. They book up QUICK, and there was a sense of urgency once the dress was ordered to pay absolutely in "FULL ASAP" but they DO run a business after all!

I purchased my wedding dress from Wedding Atelier. Overall I had a pretty positive experience. At my initial appointment, Anna was very friendly, helpful and listening to my requests. This was one of the first places I went during my search for a dress and I wound up back here. When I made the purchase, I felt confident that all the alterations we discussed would be taken care of, but Anna left the job soon after and the seamstress that I'd spoken with did not ultimately work on my dress. Most of what we discussed did get taken care of, but I feel that some things got lost in translation a bit. I was able to explain these things during the fittings, but I think it was either a bit too late in the game for some of the tweaks or the seamstress wasn't always understanding. She was pretty skilled though and was able to make many of the changes we discussed. Still, there were a few small things about the top/back of the dress that weren't quite as I'd hoped, and for the huge amount of money spent, I felt I should be 100% (not 92%) happy. I also ordered my dress 1year before my wedding date. I was hoping that by ordering so far in advance, I would be able to start fittings a bit sooner. But the fittings don't start until about 8 weeks out. Still, I was able to get them all scheduled with no problem and they always started promptly when I arrived. I just wish they weren't so close to the wedding when I ordered the dress a year in advance. It was a bit stressful to be requesting alterations just 2 weeks before the wedding. However, I think this may be common practice in the industry though. Overall, I was pretty happy with Wedding Atelier. The selection of dresses is nice, the staff is professional and all appointments took place on time. The seamstress also seemed pretty skilled. I felt that they genuinely want to make sure you are 100% happy, but in order for that to happen the communication with the client (particularly at fittings) needs to be improved.

I got my wedding dress during a trunk sale at the Flatiron boutique. Marnie went above and beyond with helping me to find the perfect dress, even making time in her schedule the next day so I could try on the dress again (I was on the fence) and take advantage of the trunk sale discount.

Once I bought the dress, I felt like the level of service diminished. When I went for my first two fittings, I didn't have a stylist helping me (for the first, Marnie was on vacation but they didn't assign someone else to assist me, and at the second she was busy with another customer). I bought my veil at the second fitting, but the system was down, so I was told the order would be put in. When I arrived for my third fitting, the veil order hadn't been put in and when I went to pick up the dress it still wasn't ready -- they were still working on it.

I would recommend Wedding Atelier because I loved their boutique and their selection. Their seamstress is also amazing and went out of her way to help me. But do be aware that once the sale is made, they turn their attention to others who have yet to purchase.

Renee was an excellent salesperson, and the seamstress was phenomenal! The dress came out absolutely perfect. The bodice was completely beaded, and I was afraid that the tailoring wouldn't come out well, but boy was I wrong! The dress was stunning. I received tons of compliments (as I'm sure all brides do...)

I only have one regret: When tailoring the length of the dress, I wish they had asked if I would be putting on flats after the ceremony... I had the length tailored to my heels.... but I put on TOMS right after the ceremony, and my dress dragged about 2 inches. I was being stepped on constantly, but it was a minor flaw. The dress was still gorgeous, and it didn't hurt our wedding day. When you go get you dress tailored, consider ALL of the shoes you will be wearing.

I have to say that I ended up loving my dress. It wasn't exactly what I thought I was purchasing, and it was difficult and stressful to make it what was delivered to me, but I did end up loving the dress. But if I had it over to do again, I would not purchase my wedding dress from this shop. I initially liked the boutique feel of this place, but if I were you, I'd go to the designer's showroom or another store that is more professional and is equipped to handle a large volume of business and customers.

The best! Give them a range your willing to pay and they will bring out the best dresses for you within your price range. In addition, it was the first place that I visited and had been the best vendor compared to other boutiques in NY. Renay and the seamstress were friendly and professional. Worth the trip from Mia to NY just for my wedding dress.

I went here to find a specific dress I had tried on somewhere else and ended up with a dress I loved even more! The assistant listened to what I wanted and found a dress that was perfect for me. The tailor, May, is brilliant and helped fit the dress to me just how I wanted (helping to show off the good bits and hide all the others!). I didn't actually visit any other places in New York so I can't compare but I would recommend this place. My only complaint is that it takes about 5 minutes to ever speak to anybody there. Try calling at unusual times.

I originally went to Kleinfeld's to find a dress, but I was so overwhelmed that I ended up buying a dress because the representative helping me said I should, not because I was in love with the dress. I ended up trying Wedding Atelier on a whim and I am so happy I did. The people are wonderful. Everyone was so patient and nice and I didn't feel rushed at all (like I did at Kleinfeld's). It is a smaller salon, but I didn't feel like there was a small selection of dresses. In fact, whereas at Kleinfeld's I didn't fit into any of the dresses I was given to try on (I'm a size 8), I fit into every dress at Wedding Atelier. Jessica was my representative and she was amazing. She knew exactly how the dress should be tailored to look best on me and the seamstress was equally as great. The dresses, veils and jewelry were all really well priced and everyone was very professional and organized. I am so happy I ended up at Wedding Atelier; I highly recommend!

In fact, whereas at Kleinfeld's I didn't fit into any of the dresses I was given to try on (I'm a size 8), I fit into every dress at Wedding Atelier. Jessica was my representative and she was amazing. She knew exactly how the dress should be tailored to look best on me and the seamstress was equally as great. The dresses, veils and jewelry were all really well priced and everyone was very professional and organized. I am so happy I ended up at Wedding Atelier; I highly recommend! Read less

I shopped around A LOT to find the perfect wedding dress and I finally found it at Wedding Atelier! Well, I thought I did on my first visit, put in my order for the dress and then woke up the next morning and realized that it was not my dream dress but everyone at the store was wonderful and very understanding when I called to cancel the order and come in to re-select my gown. My consultant Jenny was amazing but that she no longer works there(I heard she is now at Kleinfelds). Wedding Atelier was also wonderful to work with for my fittings. I live in Philadelphia so they let me schedule my fittings for weekends and late Friday afternoons. I bought all of my accessories; undergarments, veil, headpiece and earrings from Wedding Atelier. They make their accessories in the store so I was able to customize everything exactly the way I wanted it. They were a pleasure to work with!

Renee at Wedding Atelier was one of my favorite people that I worked with during the wedding planning process. When I went into the store for my initial consultation she really listened to what I wanted, asking lots of questions, and brought out dresses that matched what I was looking for. When I tried on a dress I would say "I like this but not this" and she would bring out the next dress based on my feedback on the previous dress. That first day there was one dress that I really liked, but I wasn't quite sold on one particular detail. I ended up having an email back and forth about it with Renee and when I came back a few weeks later based on our conversations she had picked out the PERFECT dress and had it waiting for me.

The dress came in in plenty of time and the alterations were all on schedule - Mae did a great job. I also did an accessories consultation with Renee and the others there and got a gorgeous veil and some earrings from Wedding Atelier.

I was so happy with the dress and very happy with my experience at Wedding Atelier.

The only negative was that my bustle came apart during the reception and my coordinator had to do an emergency sewing job on me - but overall I would recommend Wedding Atelier in a heartbeat.

Clean, airy, quiet, and modern, The Wedding Atelier was a welcome change from some of the other mega-salons I visited in the course of shopping for a wedding dress. My sales associate Marnie was helpful, warm, and pulled the perfect dress for me almost instantly, despite my initial reluctance to try something that differed from what I thought I wanted. Alterations were a breeze--the shop's seamstress could not be any more sweet--and my communication with the store was professional and courteous.

I purchased my dress from Wedding Atelier in April 2009. Wedding Atelier is a beautifully elegant bridal salon tucked away in a small 5TH Avenue building. If you are looking for a large bridal salon experience this is not the place for you. The salon however is beautiful and immaculately kept. They have a large selection of gown, (I think about 15 different designers). Their price points and designers are mid-level to higher end. I had my first appoint in March and I took two of my best friends. My sales associates was Debra, she was very nice and very accomodating. I told Debra that my limit was $1800( including all taxes, and misc costs) . Their website said that they have gowns starting at $900, but when I got there I found out that those are generally the sample gowns are you have to be willing to pay upfront for them. Debra was very patient, she showed my a variety of gowns and even let my friends take pictures. I found a gown that I loved, and another gown that my friends loved. Debra advised me not to make a decision and come back for a follow up appt in 2 weeks. Before I left I asked about the prices of the gowns and how much I would have to put down and Debra assured that it would be in my budget. I returned for my follow up appt two weeks later and Debra immediately pulled the gown that my friends liked. I tried it on, and knew it wasn't the dress I wanted. I asked her about the other gown and she went and pulled it. Well I put on my gown and immediately knew it was the one. I told Debra I wanted to purchase and I was astonished to find that the gown I wanted was $2100 without taxes included. This bummed me out. Clearly she assumed that I would purchase the gown that my friends like which was actually in my budget. I only had a portion of the deposit, being that I didn't know the actual price of the gown and I had assumed it wouldn't be over $1800 and FI are not paying for anything on cc's. I explained this to Debra and she got the manager, who allowed me to put down a portion of the deposit with the understanding that I could put down the rest of the deposit in 2 weeks (big plus on their part). She also agreed to take off $200 on the dress, but because I'm under 5'2 required a $120 hallow to hem measurement, so with tax the dress still totaled around $2100. Fast forward September 2009, and my dress is finally here and I'm not 100% happy with it, though this may not be a vendor problem. I will update after I have revisted the store, but it seems like my dress has more beading than the original sample dress and the quality of the lace seems inferior to the sample dress. I can't wholeheartedly give 5 stars because I'm am very concerned with these two issues. Another small point to consider, is that they are very "sell-sy." They tried to push a $475 veil on me, which I thougth was utterly ridiculous as it was just a plain veil with faux pearls sewn on the edges. They also have a pretty expensive alterations charge - $475.

I ended up buying my dress at the Wedding Atelier in Manhattan after finding the actual dress I decided to purchase at the Designer Loft boutique. I went with the Wedding Atelier for 2 main reasons:
1. they charged me less for the same exact dress and more for the alterations: Great!
When it comes to a strapless, huge-train heavy satin wedding dress, i want a seamstress who knows what she's doing. The person who referred me to the Designer Loft gave me the caveat that her bustle fell apart midway through the reception and she had to cut her train off with scissors (!) The seamstress - May - at Wedding Atelier knew exactly what she was doing, and gave my train a french bustle in the back that went nowhere, with all the number coded strings to hold it up.
2. As my maid of honor reminded me: you don't want to be more anal about your wedding dress than your wedding dress store.
The Wedding Atelier is pristine, clean, and they make EVERYONE take off their shoes before entering the main floor. That way when you walk around in your dress for fittings, there's not junk and dust all over the bottom of it.

My only note on this is that I had a disappointing second fitting that almost made things not work out. I had to call back and say that I wasn't happy with the way the dress was fitting me (the back was all loose and there was no waist shape whatsoever). Renee, my saleswoman, got on the case immediately, scheduled me a do-over fitting with no charge, and I walked out of that fitting very very happy. So if you don't get the sense that May the seamstress understands what you want, it may be a language barrier. Just keep pushing till you get through to the saleswoman and once she knows what she's doing, her work is stunning.

I had an okay experience here. My consultant, Jessica, seemed helpful and picked out a few dresses for me to try on. When we returned from the showroom, after looking at a dress I had on, 3 of the dresses were gone. I ended up only trying on 2, none of which I was interested in to begin with. Jessica provided her contact number to discuss doing a custom dress, of which I later emailed her about. After a week passed and still no response, I emailed her again, and tried to schedule an appointment online. She immediately emailed me stating she would contact me in a few days. I never heard from her since. I called and emailed again have not received any response. I wasted about 3.5 weeks trying to get a hold of someone at Wedding Atelier and made no progress.

I LOVED my dress. So glamorous, and chosen by one of the sales associates here. However, then there were issues. When I was ready to purchase the dress, they ordered me the sample size without measuring me. I know better. Samples can be stretched out. I should have insisted they measure me, but they called the seamstress up, she pulled around at the dress on me, and said to go with the sample size. Long story short, I had back cleavage. They thought it looked fine and that my sister could just keep unzipping me to smooth me out throughout the day. (Sure, nothing else going on!) Or they suggested maybe if I let my 38Ds hang loose, a bustier wouldn't add to the squishing. Eventually they agreed to take the dress out. It looked acceptable, but it was a shame. My side seams were not centered where they should have been, and I was still self conscious about how tight around my back and underarms it was. It was not like I was unwilling to order a "big" size. If they told me I needed a size 57, I would have said ok. I had no plans to loose more than a few pounds (I lost 7) so they didn't need to go small on me. That and the fact 7 of the 9 strings they made my bustle with tore off within 30 minutes of having it tied up gets them these disappointing ratings. It was a sad experience.

Everyone at Wedding Atelier is a delight! From the moment you try on a dress there they make you feel special and valued as a client. My dress was perfect and when I had a last minute bride freak out they took care of me with huge warm smiles. The location itself is beautiful and there selection of gowns is exquisite. You won't find anything of poor quality as I feel Carrie, the manager, has great taste and an appreciation for quality over quantity.

Everyone there was really nice. I liked the fact they make you take off your shoes- it keeps their sample dresses clean. I tried on a dress there that i really liked and the sample fit me almost perfectly and they allowed me to purchase the sample at 50% off retail price. They stored the dress for me there untill it was time for alterations. I had a few changes made to the dress (cap sleeves and a bow removed) along with the usual alterations and their seamstress did a wonderful job. However, if I had to do it again I would have just taken the dress home the day I purchased it and found someone to alter it here. Considering I live in Philly it got to be a pain having to return to NYC 3 times for alterations, not to metion the money spent taking the train. I didn't like the fact that they didn't allow you to take pictures of yourself in the dress(until you purchased it)- it made it much more difficult to decide and I probably wouldn't have purchased that dress from them if it wasn't for being able to get the sample at half price. Overall tho I had a wonderful experience. They were very personable (not snooty like some of the shops you come across) and accomodating.

I could have gotten my gown (Alvina Valenta) elsewhere (they carry it at Kleinfields, as well) but I wanted to give my business to WA. Alterations were really really thorough and profressional.

I love this little shop. They have a great staff, who were super helpful, and even with the smaller size of the shop, they can get whatever you need. I purchased my veil and hair clip from them. I'm from PA, but no store around had the veil that I wanted, so I went to Wedding Atelier. I walked in, told her what I was looking for, and she walked over and had the sample in the store. It was an easy transaction. We had gone to Kleinfeld's to look too, but compared to Wedding Atelier, Kleinfeld's is a hectic and slightly uncaring place. They didn't care about my order being incorrect, at Wedding Atelier I also had a problem, but the apologized and order the right item and shipped it to me at no cost to me. It was well worth the trip.

I've been searching for the "Amy" shoes by Filippa Scott and found it at Wedding Atelier. I didn't need an appoinment since I was only there for shoes. Of course, when I arrived there the 3 consultants that day were busy, but one of them (Jennifer) was nice enough to help me since she was almost finished with her client. Jennifer was very helpful in giving her input about the different shoes they had in the store. In the end we both agreed on the shoe I came looking for in the first place. It was also nice that she was able to just go online and look up my dress so I can have a better idea if it matched the details on my dress.

My experience at The Wedding Atelier started out fabulous. My stylist was Mona and she was a dream! She knew right away what dress I would love (and she was right) and she had an incredible sense of what would look right on me. She clearly loved what she was doing and that made me all the more excited. I met with her twice (the first time when I bought the dress and another time to show the dress to others) and I was incredibly happy with her service. However, before my first fitting I was told that Mona was no longer with the store. Although I was supposedly reassigned to another stylist, I only met that stylist once - and that was by chance and not when the dress was on me. I felt like I was left in the lurch to figure out for myself what were the best alterations to make to the dress. No one was there to tell me to make sure I could sit in the dress, or raise my arms or any other basic questions that a professional would know to ask and which then plauged me the week before the wedding. It was just me and the seamstress and whomever happened to be behind the register (for 2 of the 3 fittings). I felt abandoned. This was even more so when the store refused to honor a promise to charge only for the fabric for making a sash to go with my dress. I would still recommend brides-to-be to visit Wedding Atelier (it's still a breath of fresh air from Kleinfelds) but I would warn that the service may be lacking.

My experience at The Wedding Atelier started out fabulous. My stylist was Mona and she was a dream! She knew right away what dress I would love (and she was right) and she had an incredible sense of what would look right on me. She clearly loved what she was doing and that made me all the more excited.

I would not recommend this place to anybody!!!

I bought my dress, which was a floor sample about 16 months (April 2007) before my wedding. The dress was a Priscilla of Boson that was supposed to have straps, but i had requested to remove the straps to make it strapless. I also explained that I lived out of town, in DC, and was told that removing the straps and living out of town would not be a problem, and they would do everything to accomodate my schedule. The reason I bought my dress here was because of my salesperson. I thought she was really helpful, friendly, and really made my mother and I feel comfortable. We didn't feel any pressure to buy anything there.

I had my first fitting 6 months (December 2007) before my wedding. The first fitting went OK. At my second fitting (3 months later - March 2008), the fitter/seamstress was 35 minutes late. She was extremely abrupt, and when I expressed my concern that I felt the dress was slipping, she simply said that it's because I wanted to remove the straps, and the only way to fix it would be to keep the straps. When my bridesmaids and I argued with her, she reluctantly said she could try and take in the dress a little more. I also told her I wanted to get a matching veil. She was extremely abrupt, and made the entire experience very unpleasant. Finally, she disappeared for another half an hour, and there was no one else at the store who was able to help me ring up the purchase of my veil. I had my bridal shower that afternoon, and she almost made me an hour late.

I was extremely concerned that my dress wasn't going to fit, so I immediately called the store and scheduled another appointment with my original salesperson, who was also a fitter. When I spoke with her, she suggested some alternatives that the seamstress never suggested, and said that I could come in early before my next fitting (scheduled for 1 month before the wedding-mid-May 2008), and she could help me get dressed and work with the seamstress. I felt somewhat comfortable, but not completely, so a few days later, I tried to call and schedule another appointment in April. I had to call numerous times and leave numerous messages before someone finally called me back to schedule an appointment for the end of April. I was assured that the fitting department would talk to the seamstress and make sure my dress was there.

Come April, I came to NY for the sole purpose of getting my dress fitted. When my sister and I showed up, we were told that my sales person and seamstress had been fired, and that my dress wasn't there. I had requested my floor sample dress to be cleaned before the wedding, and they had sent out the dress that week, so my trip from DC to NY was a complete waste. I was then assured by the owner, Carrie Hung that they would be able to solve this problem, and I would only need to have the origianl 2 other appointments. I came back at the beginning of May, and tried on the dress with a new seamstress. This time, we found that because the original seamstress had taken in the dress too much (remember back at the 2nd fitting in March, she wanted to take it in further), so the dress now wrinkled and bulged in places. Also, I still felt that there wasn't enough support and the top of the dress was slipping. The seamstress and Carrie said the solution would be to sew in a bustier. She assured my mother and me (in English and Chinese) that the next time I came back, the dress would have a bustier sewn in, and it would fit.

I then received a call the day before my appointment, where she told me that the bustier she wanted to get wouldn't arrive in time, and asked if I had gone to look for other undergarments. Obviously, my mother and I hadn't, because we were under the assumption this would all be finished at the next fitting. She then suggested I go to the lingerie store around the corner from Wedding Atelier. The next day, my parents, my sister and I arrived an hour early at the lingerie store, only to find out that the store had spoken to Carrie the day before and informed her that they didn't carry the undergarments she wanted, and the bustiers they did have wouldn't work. Fortunately for us, they were able to recommend another place that did carry the appropriate undergarments. When I arrived at Wedding Atelier, Carrie wasn't even there, but the seamstress was there, and we were assured that everything would be done, and I could pick up the dress a few days before my wedding in June. Carrie had previously assured me that if I came on Saturday, they would be able to attach the bustier and make the alterations, so that I could try on the dress on Sunday. When I asked the seamstress, she seemed completely astonished, because she said Sunday was their day off. I didn't push the point, and scheduled an appointment for 3 days before my wedding.

At my final visit, there were still issues with my dress. The fabric around the waste was pucked and wrinkled because of the bustier had been sewn in, and didn't fit quite well. My parents and I had to wait another 2- 2 1/2 hours for the alterations to be made, before we could take the dress. Carrie also wasn't there that day.

Overall I was extremely disappointed with their lack of service and lack of responsibility for all the problems they caused. Instead of 2-3 fitting appointments, I made 5-6 trips from DC to NY for the express purpose of getting my dress altered. In the end, the dress did fit, but there were still minor wrinkles and puckering that we couldn't get rid of. For the amount of money we spend on the dress, alterations, and veil, we expected much better service.

The dress I bought was beautiful. The service was sooo personalized and it was never too crazy or crowded with over aggressive women tossing dresses at you like other places. My only complaint is that the bustle was sooooo confusing and complex and difficult, no one could get it to stay up the day of my wedding and instead we just had to pin it up with bunches of safety pins. Not the effect I wanted on a $4000.00 dress.

They were very nice and friendly but definitely didn't make you feel very special. You had to have an appointment and sometimes felt rushed. They did however order my dress from France, which it was a very hard dress to find. The alterations specialist was wonderful and did a great job refreshing my antique veil with pearls and appliques.

Wedding Atelier gave me a great deal on a designer gown. And their seamstress did a great job with alterations. However, they need to work on their professionalism. I once arrived for a fitting and nobody was at the store at the time of my appointment. I had to wait outside for about 15 minutes and then did not even receive an apology from the store owner. My original salesperson quit while my dress was being ordered, and I got assigned to another lady. She was also late to one of my fittings and did not apologize about her lateness. They also changed the price of alterations while my dress was being ordered. I had to throw a fit in order for them to give me the quoted price of alterations which was promised to me at the time I ordered the dress. So, I appreciated the discount on the dress, and cannot complain about the quality of the alterations, steaming, bagging, etc. which was all impeccable. The space of the store is beautiful and I was happy to go each time, but they should work on their professionalism.

I loooooooooooooooove this place!!!! They were excellent in everything from start to finish. If you need a wedding gown and you live in the tri-state area, go to them. Their selection is unlike any other and I went EVERYWHERE- Kleinfeld's, Pronovias, Priscilla of Boston, Bridal Suite of Centerreach, etc..so many places, I lost count. My gown was so unique and elegant and fit my personality sooooo much. I loved my choice and everyone I dealt with is sooo pleasant. Grace and Carrie (the owner) are the best!!!! The gown was a bit pricey BUT it is a designer gown and well worth every penny and every thousand. Sometimes if you call them, it is hard to get a live person because the answering service always picks up BUT this was one place I will recommend for eternity!! They are the best!

Sometimes if you call them, it is hard to get a live person because the answering service always picks up BUT this was one place I will recommend for eternity!! They are the best! Read less

I LOVE my wedding gown from Wedding Atelier! I was originally looking for something completely different, but they recommended me trying on Suzanne Neville and it was PERFECT! Francesca was a joy to work with, and May did an amazing job with the fitting. At Wedding Atelier, I really got the attention that I needed; the place is pleasant and not too crowded, and the gowns are well-organized.

Wedding Atelier is a great place to shop for a dress in NYC. They offer a great selection, in a quiet/peaceful atmosphere. I had a wonderful experience buying my wedding dress with them. The process was smooth and they were very attentive. I would recommend them to friends.

I had a wonderful experience with wedding atelier. The shop is very nice and clean, you walk in and immediately want to look at all their dresses. They have a very large range of styles and prices and will negotiate doughty with pricing. I loved the fact that they let you look at all their dresses and pick out what you like rather than trusting the sales associate will be able to find your perfect dress.
