I found Chamonix Bridal much like you probably are...reading reviews on The Knot! Needless to say I made an appointment and had the best experience! The girls are so sweet and make the day memorable and not overwhelming. They have dresses in various price ranges and lots of styles. They carry some of the most classy, beautiful, and unique dresses I have ever seen. I recommend Chamonix Bridal to everyone! Also, Rhinebeck is also a very cute town, perfect place to take a day trip and walk around.
I found my dress at Chamonix on Sunday, and the entire experience was a pleasure. The shop is lovely, welcoming and intimate, and it was a pleasure to meet Diana (the stylist who answered all of my initial emails to schedule my appointment) as soon as we walked in. She made my little group of moms and bridesmaids feel comfortable, involved and welcome (including my 10 year old God-daughter), and pulled a beautiful selection of dresses for me to try. She did a fantastic job of working from the ideas I talked about to show me a range of gorgeous dresses in a well-thought-out sequence, and did a great job of clipping me into each one carefully to give us a good idea of how a properly sized and fitted dress would look. Once I was in each dress, she did a great job of chatting through details and ideas while my little crew discussed, took pictures, etc. She was extremely patient and helpful with the final process - I must have tried my final 2 choices on 4 or 5 times each before making a decision, and she cheerfully accommodated each request to swap into the other gown, try different veils, walk around the shop, etc. We had a fairly tight budget, and she did a great job of pulling dresses comfortably within my range, and detailing the price of each as I put it on. I also enormously appreciate Chamonix's transparent process of including all alterations in each gown's price - this is the only shop we visited to do this, and it makes the pricing process MUCH easier. We learned over the course of our shopping weekend that alterations costs can vary hugely from dress to dress and shop to shop, and Chamonix takes the headache out of this component. I have to add that Chamonix was the 4th shop we visited in our marathon shopping weekend, and the 3rd really lovely store of the group. We had a great experience and saw some beautiful dresses at 2 other stores, but Chamonix still stood out as exceptional and special. I'm still beaming from my visit, THRILLED with my dress, and can't wait to go back to Chamonix for my first fitting! THANK YOU, Diana!
Laura and her team are absolutely wonderful! They are so patience and passionate about their job. I showed Laura a picture of the dress I found online that I loved. They only had it in a size 20 and I'm a size 6. Laura went above and beyond and ordered that dress in my size just so I could try it on! I still tried on other dresses similar to the picture. Laura helped me get in and out of the dresses. She always had the next dress ready for me. She is so friendly and patient. She did not rush me at all. She even addressed all of my mom's hundreds of questions. The dress came in a few days later. On a Friday night, she stayed late so that I could drive up to try on the dress (I live 1.5 hours away). I couldn't decide which dress to pick! Even after two hours of going back and forth of which dress to pick, Laura was still patient and helping. When I finally decided she made sure exactly what I wanted. Since I am stationed in Germany, I rarely fly back to the states. She made sue that the dress I bought would be at the store by Christmas when I come home. Also, alternations are included with the dress which is awesome!!! Laura and her team are superstars and I highly recommend coming here! You will not get this much attention anywhere else.
Everyone was so helpful. I picked out a bunch of dresses and they picked some out for me based on my likes. I actually ended up choosing a dress that they picked out for me. They brought me dresses near my size, so it was so nice being able to see what the dresses would actually look like on my body. I couldn't have asked for a better place to find my perfect dress.
I Said "Oui" to the Dress! Thank you to Laura for helping me find the most stunning gown. This charming boutique in the quaint little town of Rhinebeck - it was well worth the trip. I came in during their sample sale week and it was such a great experience, I felt completely comfortable and at ease. After trying on different styles the first time, I narrowed it down to my top two and then brought along some of my bridesmaids for the final decision. Once I decided on the dress, it just made it all the more real that I will soon be married! It's funny, I've been on such a French kick these past couple months trying to learn the language and how fitting it had been that I found my dress here... Thank you again ladies, I would absolutely recommend this shop to any future bride!
I had the best experience finding my dream dress at Chamonix! From the second I walked into the shop I knew I was in good hands. Laura made it so easy, she knew just what I was looking for and what would look perfect on me! All of the dresses and accessories in the shop are gorgeous and unique, which is exactly what I was looking for. I would highly recommend Chamonix to anyone looking for a stress-free wedding dress shopping experience!
Absolutely perfect! The girls at Chamonix Bride made dress shopping the best & memorable experience. I was able to describe what I wanted & Madi knew right away what I was looking for! She stayed within my budget and allowed me to try on "the dress" endless times to make sure I loved it! I didn't want the morning to end (& I didn't want to take my dress off)! I couldn't think of a better experience for a bride to have, thanks girls for making me feel so special!!
I found Chamonix Bride in a bridal magazine while waiting on the grocery line. After being disappointed from visiting two very large bridal salons, I decided to stop in. Laura was the sweetest bridal consultant. She had found my wedding dress in the first group of dresses she pulled. I am so happy that I picked up that magazine in the grocery line! Thank you Laura and Chamonix Bride!
I came to Chamonix after going to many other places and being disappointed. Chamonix had the best service, best choices of dresses and honesty the girls there were the best. I am a very picky bride-to-be, and they made it so easy for me to choose. I walked in almost in tears hearing that the dress I chose from another shop won't come in time for my wedding. I called Chamonix and they were able to fit me an appointment that same day, and I even picked it a dress within 30 mins! Walked out with tears of joy!!! I HIGHLY RECCOMEND THIS PLACE!!!
Chamonix is amazing! Laura was so helpful and kind! I felt no pressure and wasn't rushed at all. Everyone there made me feel so comfortable! I was really able to enjoy the experience fully!
Chamonix Bride is located in the beautiful town of Rhinebeck. It was the first shop I went to when I was looking for my wedding dress. The moment I walked inside, I felt a sense of comfort and excitement. The store is very charming and each dress was delicately in place. The women who work at the store are kind, knowledgeable and very helpful. I spent some time with my friends and family picking out a variety of gowns to try on. Each dress was beautiful in its own way and there was not one dress that I did not like. I ended up finding the dress of my dreams and the woman who was helping me helped me to find a belt, veil and tiara. Each piece was chosen with care and they all complimented the dress beautifully. I could go on and on about my incrdible experience with Chamonix Bride. I would recommend the shop to anyone who is searching for a wedding dress or bridesmaid gowns. My dress fit me like a glove and it helped to make my wedding day the most perfect day. I will always be fond of Chamonix Bride and forever grateful for the wonderful staff!
I purchased my wedding dress here last week, and I had an amazing experience. It all began with a reassuringly useful preliminary phone call with one of the expert staff members. She was kind, polite, and helpful about asking all the right questions prior to my visit. I came in on a Saturday morning with my sister and my future sister-in-laws. We were greeted by Summer, who was extremely personable. I'm a bit shy, so it was such a pleasure to try on dresses at Chamonix's quaint and intimate atmosphere. Summer had my look pegged right away, but she also showed me a variety of silhouettes and styles without ever pressuring me towards any one type of dress. After trying many different dresses, I ended up purchasing the first dress I put on! I waited about a week to purchase, and everyone at Chamonix was extremely supportive of this decision. When I returned a week later, the staff let me try on my dress once more and even talked through possible alterations with me. I would highly recommend Chamonix and their excellent staff to help you find the perfect dress!
I was surprised at how cavalier the staff was about the dresses, which were worth several thousand dollars! They were in such a hurry to get me into the next one, they tossed these beautiful gowns on the floor and had no compunction about stepping on them! I also didn't like not being able to browse their inventory. My consultant pulled a few dresses for me and each was beautiful, but rather underwhelming for what I was looking for. The whole staff was very nice, professional, and flattering. They followed up a few times to let me know the styles I liked were on sale. Also, the fact that alterations are included in the price of the gown was a DEFINITE bonus.
Everything i could imagine and more when shopping for my wedding dress! The customer service provided by everyone was impeccable. Rachel was so sweet and really took her time helping to find me a dress that both fit my style and budget. My fittings were quick and stress free. Kathy, who does the alterations, is clearly a master at what she does. So happy to have found this place, i hope all other brides-to-be do as well!
Chamonix Bridal came highly recommended by many brides I know, I went there today and what a perfect experience! I had Laura as my consultant, she was very patient and sweet! Since it was my first time shopping I was very nervous and unsure as to what I wanted. Laura let me try on at least 10 dresses, she really listened to what I liked and didn't like. I wasn't rushed at all and loved the one on one attention they give you. Needless to say I left with my dream dress!! They have a great selection and prices to fit everyone's budget!
The easiest part throughout the entire wedding planning experience for me was choosing a wedding dress. And that is because the girls at Chamonix are amazing. I tried on 5 dresses and picked #4. Not once was anything rushed nor was anyone pushy to make a sale. They worked within my budget (which I kept pretty low). Rachel is an absolute sweetheart and the seamstress (I sincerely apologize-I am horrible with names) was a delight to work with. You felt very at ease with them. Everything went like clockwork and I even ordered my dress fairly late in the scheme of things (ordered in March for a Sept 4th wedding). All in all, I could not have asked for a better experience for choosing my dress!
I had such a great experience buying my wedding dress from Chamonix. Rachel was so friendly and helpful, picking out an assortment of beautiful dresses that were just my type and ultimately finding me the perfect dress. Kathy the seamstress went above and beyond to get my dress to fit perfectly, made changes to make me feel more comfortable, and added personal touches to the dress. They all worked with me to schedule fittings that worked with me living out of town and having a tough work schedule. Kathy even let me pick up the dress from her house and told me to bring along my veil so she could steam it for me since I couldn't make it to the shop the days she was there. Chamonix has a great staff, beautiful dresses, and reasonable prices.
I had a wonderful experience at Chamonix Bride! Their dresses are beautiful and well-priced. The staff was always friendly, helpful, and responsive and the shop is super cute. Their tailor, Kathy, is also absolutely fantastic and did a masterful job altering my dress. I'd definitely recommend coming here to look for your dress!
Chamonix was my first and last stop for wedding dress shopping. Rachel was awesome and so helpful. She listened to what I was looking for and was able to find me the perfect dress. I would recommend this shop to anyone! Great service and a beautiful selection of dresses!
I found the gown of my dreams there! They have a wonderful selection and the woman who helped me was so nice and professional! She was beyond sweet. The ladies there are so nice and I had the best experience. I'm so happy with my choice!
I found the dress of my dreams! After looking at countless bridal shops in the tri state area i was starting to wonder if I would ever find my dress...then I stumbled upon Chamonix at a bridal show ...made a appointment ...after hearing my long wish list the owner came up from the storage cellar with a dress that was made for me! simple yet whimsical, dapper and dreamy....it had the creative flair that had been missing in all the other shops. Every time I went in for a fitting everyone is so warm and welcoming no stress, no pressure a true delight to work with! I have to add there Taylor is amazing she was able to take a dress that was way too tight and make it fit just right!!! Definitely worth the drive to Rhinebeck!
I could not have dreamt up a better wedding dress shopping experience! I had tried on gowns before, and the places I had gone did not seem focused on finding the right dress for me, but rather making a sale. Chamonix was so different from my other experiences and I found my dress within my first half hour at the boutique. Rachel listened to all of my likes and dislikes and found my perfect dress. I highly recommend Chamonix and cannot wait to go back for bridesmaids dresses and alterations!
Great Boutique ShopReviewed on 12/02/2015 Morgan S
I was looking for a boutique bridal salon to get my dress. for one, rhinebeck is such a wonderful town so it's no surprise this shop would be the same. Chamonix was also recommended by a family friend who also purchased her dress here. Rachel was so lovely. she was patient and really worked with what we were looking for. I had an idea of a dress i wanted but really had no clue, so with her expertise it made the experience less painful :) would definitely recommend Chamonix to a bride looking for her dress. the entire experience was wonderful.
A DelightReviewed on 11/28/2015 Rachel B
I had a wonderful experience at Chamonix. Everyone was a pleasure to work with: friendly, professional and helpful. I felt comfortable and at ease making a decision on my wedding dress which I didn't think was possible. Thank you to Chamonix for my beautiful wedding dress xox
Excellent dress shop!Reviewed on 7/19/2014 Shannon S
Chamonix Bride is an excellent dress shop in Rhinebeck, NY. Everyone involved in the shop is kind and courteous and they have a beautiful selection of dresses. They completely respected my budget and I found the perfect dress after only trying on 3 or 4. Every time I went into the shop, from the initial appointment and all my fittings, I had an excellent experience. Alterations are included in the cost of the dress and their seamstress was wonderful! My dress fit perfectly and I was so happy that I chose them when looking for my dress. I would completely recommend them to any other bride. Their dresses start around $1000 and go up from there.
