Welcome to Gilded Bridal!

Bridal Shop Wedding Dresses

Try on pretty wedding dresses and drink champagne – what’s not to love? At Gilded, we believe in a fun and relaxed bridal experience in a beautiful atmosphere. From the moment you walk in our door, our goal is to make you feel welcome and supported, and to have a darn good time while we’re at it!


We focus on bringing you a curated collection of gorgeous wedding dresses from small, independent designers. We take care to make sure that all of our dresses are produced ethically, and most of our dresses are produced in the same place they are designed – like Brooklyn, Manhattan, Vancouver, Minneapolis, and Tel Aviv.


We’re tickled to offer you and your squad your own private sanctuary. We love our large dressing rooms, and don’t worry – there’s a big velvet curtain in the middle of them so you don’t have to parade in your undies in front of grandma.


We do show our dresses by appointment only so that we can help you into the gowns – we are here to save you from trying to button tiny buttons all the way down your back by yourself! We also know our dresses like the back of our hands and can point you towards dresses that might look unassuming on the hanger, but that really wow on the body. Ultimately, we want to make sure we carve out the time to give you one on one attention, and to answer any questions to demystify this whole wedding dress thing.


Ready to come hang out with us? We’re located in the Glenwood South neighborhood in downtown Raleigh, and you can snag your appointment online or give us a ring at 919-717-2674. We can’t wait to meet you!
