About this Vendor

Chic Bridal Salon

Genevieve’s Bridal Couture is a chic bridal boutique focused solely on the bride. You won’t find any Mother of the Bride, flower girl or bridesmaid dresses in our store, but you may find your dream dress along with an unforgettable experience. This boutique was made with the bride-to-be in mind! From sweet treats and undivided attention, your experience will be unlike any other you’ve had. We make sure there are no more than two brides in our store at a time (but aim for one) so you can be the center of your consultant’s attention. Our dresses range from $1200-$4500, therefore we feel confident we have something here for you. We carry designers Augusta Jones, Blue Willow by Anne Barge, Essense of Australia, L'amour by Calla Blanche, Jim Hjelm, Ti Adora and Nicole Spose (coming soon!).

Getting your wedding dress can definitely be overwhelming- I walked into Genevieve's with a rough idea of what I wanted, but after I saw all the gorgeous gowns, I just couldn't choose! Francesca and Maya did an amazing job of helping me try on different styles and most... Read More importantly listened to what I wanted to feel on my wedding day. And boy did I find the right dress- totally different than what I originally thought I was going to be wearing and I couldn't be any more excited about my decision! The ladies made me feel very special and did not push for me to buy anything- they even encouraged me to take a few days, think about it and then if I'm still thinking about THE dress, feel free to come back and order it. It was so refreshing not to have the added pressure of having to buy the dress right that minute. Honestly, an amazing experience and the ambiance of the shop is just spectacular- you completely forget you're right down the street from the mall. I absolutely loved everything about it and I can't wait for my dress to come in! Highly recommend Genevieve's to anyone looking for a stress-free, special and fun experience looking for their wedding dress! Thank you Francesca and Maya!

I loved Genevieve's! I felt so special seeing my name on the board outside when I walked into my first appointment. The shop is absolutely beautiful and Maya is so friendly and personable!

From the ambiance, to the staff, to the amazing selection of beautiful dresses - I wish I could rate it higher. After saying yes to my dress, they poured me, my mom, and my maid of honor glasses of champagne and allowed us to celebrate the amazing moment without feeling rushed.

I had a wonderful experience when shopping for my wedding dress at Genevieve's Bridal Couture! When I walked in the door, they had a sign with my name on it welcoming me to begin my appointment. Monika, the consultant that helped me, greeted me by name and helped my friends and... Read More I choose dresses for me to try on. Once we had all of the styles I liked, Monika helped me into all of the dresses and answered all of the questions my friends and I had about each one. Once I narrowed my choices down to two, she helped me to try them on again so that I could compare them. I was leaning more towards one dress, and once she added the veil, the deal was done. I had found my dream dress and veil! Once I said yes to the dress, we were offered a Champagne toast to celebrate, and it was the perfect way to end the day. I would recommend Genevieve's Bridal Couture to any bride. My experience was so much fun, and the consultants and owner were extremely friendly and helpful. Plus, they have a variety of beautiful dresses in all different styles. I can't wait to go back when my dress comes in!
