My experience was everything I could have hoped for! After trying on dresses for the first time the weekend prior at another big name Manhattan bridal salon (hint hint), I left the store confused and unsure of what to do next. While my experience there was also great, I just felt pressured to purchase a dress that didn't really do it for me and didn't give me the "wow" moment I was hoping and wishing for. And I am so happy I stuck to my guns and didn't cave in! Fast forward to the next weekend when my mom and I had an appointment at the Wedding Atelier with Marnie. After a brief conversation about what I was looking for, Marnie went off to pull dresses--and it just so happens that the dress I ended up buying was the very first one she put me in! My mom was immediately in tears but me being the level-headed and indecisive person that I am, I insisted to keep trying on dresses just to make sure we couldn't beat it--and we couldn't. I ended up going to another appointment that afternoon that I already had set at another salon but quickly rushed back to Wedding Atelier before they closed to try that first dress on one more time. I felt like through the entire process, no one rushed me or pushed me towards a decision other than my own, not to mention how fabulous Marnie was finding my dream dress from the very start. Thank you, thank you, thank you Marnie and the team at Wedding Atelier for finding the perfect dress for me, and for making the process a stress-free and enjoyable one. I highly recommend the Wedding Atelier -- there atmosphere is very relaxed and intimate and they are not a wedding factory like some other salons. Not to mention, the dresses and designers that they carry are ones that I didn't see at every other salon and that made the selection process that much more unique and special. No bride wants to be like every other one, or at least I certainly didn't. If you are looking for a dress, go here first -- I mean it!

Wedding Atelier is a beautiful bridal boutique where I found my perfect wedding dress. Kirsten was my stylist and she was wonderful to work with. I told her about the dresses I liked and she came up with great choices for me to try on. I ended up picking a Pronovias fit and flare dress with beautiful beading that fit me like a glove.

The odd thing that happened was that at the next appointment I had for measurements, I was told that the dress was discontinued (they mistakenly did not take it off of the floor). Obviously this really upset me at first, but Kirsten and her manager offered to sell me the sample dress at a discounted price along with free beadwork restoration. She turned a bad situation into a good one and I was able to still buy my dream wedding dress. Thank you, Wedding Atelier!

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.

Review Update: My finding the dress experience was great but looking back on it it was because I found a beautiful dress that I fell in love with so was blinded by the pushy sales people and terrible service. At my first appointment I discovered the wrong style of my dress had been ordered. The sales person I originally worked with no longer worked there and the new sales person didn't seem to care too much and almost blamed me for the wrong dress being ordered. They were able to get my the correct dress two weeks later.

The first fitting schedule had the last fitting scheduled for 2 weeks after my wedding date. At this point any sort of special treatment I might have slightly felt from this store was completely gone and I was just plain frustrated. Throughout my fittings there was never a sales associate to help style the dress and make sure it was tailored correctly or what I had discussed with my original sales person. Thankfully I brought friends but considering the amount this store charges for alterations (which is a flat fee) and a wedding dress isn't just another dress you wear I expected a professional to help me out through this process. The seamstress ignored how I asked her to bustle the dress and did it differently even though I told her I didn't like that way. I asked her to remove the crinkle lining of the dress but when she did she also removed the lining making the bottom part of my dress sheer and weird looking in photos. Buying a dress might be fine here but save the $500 alteration fees and go to someone who knows what they are doing.

I found my dress at Wedding Atelier and I absolutely love it. However, after looking at 3 other dress shops in NYC, Wedding Atelier is the only shop that showed me dresses above the price range I gave them. The dress I ended up getting I fell in love with, thinking it was in my price range, and then I gasped when I heard the actual price. Seeing I was a bit shocked, the sales associate offered a discount and ultimately I decided to get the dress. However, I did feel like I was a bit manipulated into choosing a more expensive dress. That said, they have a wonderful selection of dresses in many different price ranges (many very reasonably priced, despite how fancy the shop seems). When my dress came in, I had a bit of a moment when I thought the color was a bit off, and the salespeople were very helpful and calm in letting me compare my dress to the sample and letting me take as much time as I needed to try on my dress versus the sample. Ultimately, they cannot control the dye lots and the difference was so subtle that I decided it was not a big deal, and I still loved the dress. They handled my stress very professionally and kindly.

Beautiful salon, gorgeous dresses.

My stylist, Francesca, was simply amazing. She is everything a dress stylist should be - enthusiastic, knowledgeable about what will look good for your body, exceptional taste, and incredibly patient. I also appreciated that I was able to tell her what I was looking for, and what my price point was, and she stuck to that perfectly. Rather than being pushy, she comes across as someone who truly cares about her clients being happy and finding their dream dress. It was a dream to work with Francesca (thank you!).

One drawback of the salon itself though - they generally do not let you take pictures. A dress can look very different in pictures, so I think this is a pretty important part of the process.

Wedding Atelier is where you must go to purchase your gown. I didn't know exactly what I wanted, but I trusted the experience and professionalism of Marnie to choose options for me. The gown she thought would be my top choice absolutely was a dream. I wouldn't have chose this dress on my own, but it's the gown I will be wearing on my wedding day!

My experience with Wedding Atelier is very mixed. When I decided on a dress, I was pressured into getting it that day as expected. My stylist, Kathy, was helpful and straight forward but the manager at that time (they have a new manager now) was nasty and very cursory about things. The manager measured me for the dress in less than a minute and wrote down whatever number and didn't give me enough time to review the contract, so I had to be very assertive about it. About one month before the wedding, I still didn't get any update about when I will be getting my dress. I had to contact Kathy but she was out that day. I talked to the new manager, Stacey, and I had to go bridezilla on her. I felt bad but I had to do what I had to do get my dress and get the fittings that I paid for. As promised, I got my dress in two days and Stacey was so accommodating about my schedule. I had my first fitting with May and she asked me who measured me. I told her that the old manager did. She didn't say anything but I can read from her expression. Also, I read a lot of reviews about fittings and I was expecting my stylist or someone to be there but that was not the case. It was just me and May. Stacey checked in a couple of times but that was it. While I was getting the fitting, one of the stylist removed my stuff from the dressing room without asking and I was a bit shocked that she would do it without letting me know. I thought about telling Stacey about it but let that one go since I was more focused on the fitting. Other subsequent fittings (two more) went well but I didn't have a stylist with me to pick out veils and accessories. So, my overall experience, is just ok but Stacey and May were great.

I can't even begin to tell you how terrible my experience has been with this place.

At first, they treat you like gold (when you are looking to spend money, of course).

Once you buy your gown, they make it complicated to arrange your fittings and they tell you 'Once you arrange your fittings it's set in stone and cannot be changed!'

The worst part is that they ordered the wrong size without even calling to make sure that was okay. My dress had to be altered several times in order to fit me! Unbelievable.
What saved me was Nardia and Nigel, Alteration specialists (Their partner alteration company). Nardia worked on my dress overnight and even arranged

After searching and searching for the perfect dress I finally stumbled upon the Wedding Atelier on Madison. Unlike Pronovias or Kleinfelds there isn't a big name/big price associated with it. They had a huge selection of dresses and only let me look at the dresses within my price range, not pushing me to spend more like other places. It seems like some dresses they have are last season - so, 2014 not 2015 - but because of this the prices are lower. The girl who helped me was a great listener and found me not only what I wanted but convinced me to try on a few dresses that I thought weren't my style but I ended up buying one of them! I got an amazing Pronovias dress for 2k! The only problem I had with them is that their alterations start at 600$, without including putting pads or a bra in. And because of the style of my dress, they can't even hem it. $600 is a lot for alterations when they can't even shorten the dress or put in a bra.
