I can't say enough about the team at Gown Boutique!! I am so blessed to have worked with Jenna (stylist) and Liz (seamstress/designer) who were absolutely amazing and so patient during the entire wedding dress process! Honestly, after trying on tons of dresses I was more confused than ever when I arrived at Gown Boutique & after meeting with Jenna she knew exactly what I was looking for. Jenna put me in the most beautiful gown which I fell in love with, wore on my very special day, set the … tone for our entire wedding and made it a memorable event for not only myself but everyone! I can't thank Jenna and her team enough, who not only helped me with my gown but also my bridesmaids with their dresses, bridesmaids jewelry, bridal jewelry and veil. I recommend Gown Boutique to any bride looking for something special on their very special day!! Read More
Thank you so much for all your kind words Megan! It was truly a pleasure to help you prepare for your wedding day, we are honored to have been able to help you. Congratulations to you and Chad!
The Gown Boutique was the first bridal shop I ventured to in search of my perfect wedding dress. My mother, grandmother and I went through the entire boutique and picked out several different types of gowns, as I did not know exactly what I was looking for. Luckily, I had the help of Jenna! She picked out one gown that I was a little skeptical about, but once I tried it on I could not stop smiling! Nothing else I had tried on compared to that gown, but I still thought I should try one more shop … as this was the only place I had been to look for my dress. We went to one other bridal boutique and once I saw the dresses, they were nothing in comparison to the gown at the Gown Boutique. I told my mom that that was my gown and we needed to go back now :) Once we got back to the shop, Jenna greeted us again. She knew what we were back for. The champagne was brought out in celebration and I tried THE dress on one more time. I was in love! This was my gown, and I have Jenna to thank for picking it out! Over the next year of wedding planning I had the pleasure of working with Jessica for fittings and accessories. She answered all my questions and was very responsive with emails, keeping me up to date and informed on my next steps. To top it off, Liz did wonderful on my wedding and reception dress alterations. I wanted a few things changed on the dress and she made it exactly what I envisioned. I absolutely love the ladies at the Gown Boutique. I would definitely recommend them to any bride looking for a beautiful gown and an appointment that is truly focused on you. The Gown Boutique of Charleston definitely let their brides know that they are one of a kind! Read More
Kaitlyn, thank you so much for sharing your story! We love to hear about how a bride fell in love with her gown, and we truly appreciate you recommending us. You look amazing in your gown, your photos came out beautifully (love the veil shots!), and all the details you put into your wedding day were so fun to look through. It's clear you put a lot of thought and effort into planning your big day. Congrats to you and Daniel!
I worked with Emily at Gown Boutique for my second round of wedding dress hunting. My parents went with me and we pulled gowns. I told Emily what I was looking for, she paid attention to the gowns we chose, and pulled the EXACT image of a dress I had in my mind and put it on me, in my budget too! I had my best friend and matron of honor come down the next week to see the dress and as soon as I put that dress on again, she said "That's it". They were so accommodating with my schedule for … fittings, and Liz had my dress fitting like a glove on our wedding day. Terry, the owner, actually pinned me for my final fitting! They "trained" my mom how to tie my sash and fix my bustle, even made videos for us so there was no question. Emily had the ability to take my 'wants' and produce the perfect dress, and Liz fitted me so well my figure looked amazing. My husband cried the entire time I walked down the aisle, and I felt like the most beautiful person ever the day of my wedding. What more could a bride want? Read More
Laurie, thank you so much for sharing your story and kind words...nothing makes us happier than to hear a bride say she felt beautiful on her wedding day! It is such a special moment in your life, and we are honored to be but a small part of it. You truly looked stunning - congrats to you and Matt!
Loved my experience here! The ladies who work here are extremely helpful and went out of their way to help me find the perfect dress! The seamstress did an excellent job with the alterations! Loved having the shop to ourselves while picking out a gown.
Jessica, it was a pleasure to work with you. You were stunning in your gown, and you have amazing photography from your wedding day - especially those shots of you and Chris walking through the Alhambra Hall marsh grass! All the details came together beautifully, congrats!
I cannot say enough wonderful things about the mother/daughter team at Gown Boutique. From the minute we walked in the door, we felt the "bridal" experience that we did not find at the other boutiques we visited. When I fell in love with a dress that was great, but not exactly what I wanted, their seamstress worked her magic and I ended up with the dress of my dreams!
We so enjoyed working with you Coley, and we appreciate your kinds words. Your customized gown was a stunner and it accented your natural beauty perfectly. We still have brides that mention seeing your photo and inquire about that gown...a forever classic! We were honored to be able to dress you for such as a special day.
They have a wonderful selection of beautiful designer gowns, and an extremely cute dog who is occasionally on site in her pearls. This is a mother daugher team, with alterations on site, and they are very helpful with ordering veils and jewelry.
Thank you for your kind words Ann! It seems like just yesterday that you were in the shop selecting your gown & accessories. Your photos are stunning and you are beautiful in your gown!
