Top Tips from Gabriella New York Bridal Salon

I had the pleasure of visiting Gabriella New York Bridal Salon last week.  It is such an intimate and relaxed salon.  You will not feel rushed as you search for your gown here.  The dresses range from $1,500 to $12,000.  They have beautiful, yet affordable gowns from Amy Kuschel ranging from $1,500 to $3,800.  They also carry Marchesa which ranges from $3,000 to $12,000.  Whatever your budget is, the knowledgeable consultants will work with you to help you find the right gown.  

Gowns take 3-4 months to order, depending on the designer.  If you are on a short time frame, certain designers may be able to rush the order for a fee.  Two months prior to the wedding, you will attend your first of 2-3 fittings to make sure that every part of your gown fits perfectly to you.  Your consultant will be present at your fitting with the seamstress.  

Lucky for you, Gabriella New York Bridal Salon is the flagship location for Sara Gabriel, where you can find a beautiful headpiece or veil to complete your look.  They also have Italian made shoes from Aruna Seth and gorgeous vintage jewelry and handbags.  Take a look at the incredible list of designers for gowns and accessories here.  Even if you happen to find your gown at another salon, Gabriella New York Bridal Salon will take appointments for accessories.

Top Tips from Gabriella New York Bridal Salon:

  • For your very first appointment choose five gowns to try on that are completely different, so you get an idea of what types of silhouettes and fabrics you gravitate towards.
  • Bring no more than two people with you to the appointment.  Too many opinions can make the decision confusing.  
  • Be sure to wear some mascara and lipstick when you go to your bridal shopping appointment so you feel more glamorous when trying on the wedding gowns
  • Not every Bride is going to feel very emotional when they find their wedding gown.  Finding a gown should be about choosing the one that makes you feel most beautiful.
