Dedication to perfection. . .

"The dress was a show-stopper. It was absolutely gorgeous and so much fun to wear. Your amazing attention to detail and dedication to perfection really paid off.  Joan, it was such a pleasure to work with you. I felt confident in your hands. Many, many thanks."

Vision. . .

“I have gotten so many compliments on how gorgeously simple (I like to call it sublime) my dress was…the shape of it was so flattering, and the fabric caught the light so magically. I just couldn’t have imagined a more perfect dress for myself.”

Pleasure working with you. . .

Attention to detail. . .

"Thank you so much for having the vision to see what would look best on me and making it come true!"

Style. . .

"Perhaps the only thing more terrifying than attempting to find the perfect wedding dress is trying to find one with the sophisticated flair of a woman marrying past the age of 30. Thank goodness my journey led me to Joan Gilbert, a woman with the fashion world’s expertise at her fingertips and a gift for making fantasy and reality.”


Magic. . .

"Joan’s fashion-savvy and sensitivity ensure that each client receives the kind of one-on-one attention necessary to select the ideal gown – one that’s just right for her, alone. Nothing less will do, and the designer’s greatest joy is in knowing that each bride-to-be feels and looks radiantly beautiful on the single most important day of her life. Some might call it magic."


Most beautiful. . .

“What the pictures don’t come close to capturing is how amazing my dress felt and moved. It was absolutely perfect and I felt the most beautiful of my entire life.”


Fresh design. . .

"As an event planner I’ve had a chance to view wedding details from the ordinary to the extraordinary. I had known for a long time that when it came my turn to be married, I’d want you to make my wedding dress. I am continually impressed by the sophistication and freshness of your designs, your passion for quality and detail and your flair for subtle elegance. Thank you so very much for helping me feel so beautiful and special on my wedding day."

Personal Attention

I wanted to enjoy every moment of my enchanted destination wedding. Thank you for taking the time to ask me about the setting to help us find just the right cut, fabric, and fit for my wedding gown.  I was as comfortable stepping out of a boat onto the dock and dancing under the stars as I was during the ceremony.  It was elegant, fluid, and pretty throughout the evening.
