"Bridal Atelier Montclair has some of the most gorgeous and hard to find designers! The boutique is beautiful - the decor and set up is elegant, romantic, and special. It truly sets the stage for picking your wedding dress! Rachel, Kaelyn, and Deb are a joy to work with! From the moment I walked in, Rachel and Kaelyn greeted me with smiling faces. Rachel intently listens to get a true understanding of what you like in a dress and works with you during the process as you figure our things you don't like. I received endless compliments on my dress the entire night! I not only purchased my dress and veil from Bridal Atelier Montclair, but I bought my wedding earrings, my hair piece, and earrings for all my bridesmaids! Rachel really made my experience of picking my wedding dress something to remember! I recommend Bridal Atelier Montclair to every bride!"

"From start to finish my experience at Bridal Atelier was a dream! I had been to many bridal salons before finding this boutique and my experience at Bridal Atelier and with Rachel was by far the best. The boutique itself is beautiful, the selection of gowns is amazing, and the service and attentiveness of Rachel and her team made the entire experience so special. Rachel was so knowledgeable and caring - she helped me truly customize my dress and translated every piece of feedback and suggestion I had into the perfect dress. I am so thankful I had the opportunity to work with Rachel and I couldn’t be happier with the outcome. Thank you for making the process so fun, special, and personal during a crazy time!"

"I cannot express how much I loved working with Rachel and her team at Bridal Atelier! From the moment I went shopping there I knew I would be in good hands. Rachel is responsive, attentive, kind, and just all around so helpful and knowledgable. I truly loved the experience of shopping there but then also doing my fittings with Rachel and the tailor. Both of them just went above and beyond and I'm so grateful to have worked with them!"

"I cannot say enough good words about Bridal Atelier Montclair. The shop owner, Rachel was absolutely AMAZING throughout the entire process. From the time I stepped in to begin my search till the very end. The experience was more than I could have hoped for.. I really enjoyed the one on one appointments, the champagne when you found your dress truly made you feel like the one and only bride!! I had no idea what I wanted when I walked in but she helped me navigate and I found the perfect dress for my special day. Also, her seamstress and other employees were also amazing. It was also super cool that I was able to meet the designer of my dress! If you are looking for your wedding dress, 10/10 recommend this store!"

"Rachel was the absolute best! I traveled all over the country looking for the right dress and from all of the boutiques I visited (no joke, I went to Seattle, Austin, Boston, and then here) Bridal Atelier by far was the best all around experience. Rachel was so sweet, the process was so effortless, she made me feel incredible taken care of and made sure the dress was exactly what I wanted. A DREAM COME TRUE! Thank you Rachel"

"Bridal Atelier is a true dream! Rachel and her team exceeded all my expectations, were such a pleasure to work with, and I cannot recommend them highly enough. I knew I wanted to get my dress from Montclair (my hometown) and it is always of course great to support a small (and female owned!) business, but these ladies truly are the best. Starting from my first (and only!) appointment to try on dresses, Rachel really "got" me - my look, my vibe, my crazy fun family - all of it. There was absolutely zero pressure and the process was so easy and transparent from start to finish. I've already stopped in to visit twice since my wedding and Montclair is so lucky to have this amazing little shop. Truly can't say enough good things!"

"Bridal Atelier is not your typical wedding dress shop. This was the second place I went to while shopping for my dress and I knew as soon as I walked in that I would find my dress here. I had a very overwhelming experience at the first place I went to but Rachel and her team made everything feel so easy and made me comfortable. It was such a personal experience and I truly enjoyed my time here. After finding a dress I loved, I couldn't wait to go back for fittings. The fitting process went so smoothly thanks to Rachel and Deb, who made sure my dress fit perfectly. I absolutely loved my dress and experience at Bridal Atelier. I will certainly miss visiting this shop!"

"Rachel from the Bridal Atelier in Montclair was spectacular at helping me narrow in on my dream dress! I went in with an idea of what I wanted my gown to look like and she quickly grasped my idea and selected 6 beautiful gowns for me to try on! After I tried my second gown on, I knew that I had found the right one. It was so refreshing to work with someone who not only knows their gowns, but truly listens to you and works with you to make your vision a reality.
But the service didn't stop there! I had found my dress and decided that I wanted to make some customizations to really make it unique and Rachel was there to help me concept ideas. That was a huge help especially because I knew I wanted certain changes and I wasn't sure if I could convey what I wanted. But she understood and I felt like I could trust her with my vision!
I couldn't say better things about Rachel and the gowns that she has available! One of my childhood friends is getting married next year and I already recommended Bridal Atelier! Thank you so much for everything!"

Rachel and her team at Bridal Atelier are phenomenal--professional, warm and kind, and very competent. From the beginning, Rachel curated gowns that fit my body type and she was able to order my dress on a shorter timeline when many other shops laughed at me for suggesting I had 7 months. That said, we had to cancel our wedding because of the pandemic and there were a few months where our plans were completely up in the air; Rachel and her team were reassuring, flexible, and made me feel like I was in control and things would work out. The dress itself is spectacular and fit perfectly (her seamstress is great) which speaks to Rachel's eye for unique designers and details. Highly recommend Bridal Atelier Montclair!

I’m so happy with my decision to get my wedding dress at Bridal Atelier. They created such an intimate experience where the bride and her guests are the only ones in the store for each appt. Kaelyn was my stylist and by just a few questions knew exactly the type of dresses to recommend for me to try on! She was so professional and my family loved her! They have a beautiful selection of dresses which are very unique to what you see in other bridal stores. They made the appts fun and easy and were very good about adhering to Covid guidelines which was especially important since my 87 year old grandmother was with us. I can’t wait for my dress to come in and go back for all my fittings!

For any bride looking for a stunning wedding gown with an incredible experience, check out Bridal Atelier Montclair! Rachel, the owner made my experience perfect. I went to a few wedding salons before deciding on a dress and I am SO glad I found mine at her salon. She is extremely knowledgeable, and makes you feel so comfortable while shopping, and her curated collection of gowns are so beautiful. I cannot recommend this Bridal store enough!

 

- Julie M from The Knot

I cannot thank Rachel and the staff at Bridal Atelier enough for my amazing wedding dress! The quality and selection is unmatched by any other salon I visited. Another salon had talked me into a different dress, and for months I couldn't stop thinking about the Kelly Faetanini dresses I had seen at Bridal Atelier. Rachel answered all my questions and made it clear that she was there to help me make the right decision! There was no pressure to decide. They let me know when there would be a trunk show for Kelly and made sure I got the perfect gown at the best price! I haven't stopped smiling since I bought it! Thank you!!

While I did not purchase a dress from this shop, I found that the service was one of the best I experienced! I came to my appointment by myself and immediately felt like Rachel was a good friend of mine. She genuinely wanted me to find the perfect dress and was very patient and kind during the process. She truly listened to understand my style and what I was looking for. Rachel and her stylist even took the time to take photos of me in the dresses with my phone to send pictures to my mom! I highly recommend Bridal Atelier Montclair!
