My mom and I came here after looking at several other bridal stores, at various price point levels, and were quite discouraged. From the moment we walked in, until the very moment we got on the elevator to leave, Marie Gabriel Couture was so wonderful. All of the staff were so incredibly gracious and kind, and really just made
us feel welcome. We could really tell that they were like a family with one another, too! This was the first bridal store I have gone to where I found not just one or two dresses I liked, but dozens that I LOVED.
The best part of all was the very moment I tried on my dream dress--they were there to capture it all on camera! I am so thankful that such a special moment and once-in-a-lifetime moment was caught on film. I got the dress of my dreams, and we all knew it once I tried it on!
Young (owner) and Peggy (Senior Bridal Consultant) spent time to review everything with us--everything from what I envisioned for my wedding, how I'd like to feel on my wedding day, etc, to fittings and tailoring (comes with the price of the dress--so rare!). I wish I could name each of them by name, though, because they
were all so great!
I am so thankful that we walked into Marie Gabriel Couture! My favorite part (besides the dress!!!!) was how kind, helpful, and warm the staff was! They also have a little surprise for shoppers, too! 🙂 We hugged each one of them when we left! I cannot speak highly enough about Marie Gabriel Couture and the staff.
Marie Gabriel is truly a luxurious experience for any bride! We were blown away by the kindness, care and knowledge the staff possessed. Michelle Espinoza was able to decipher exactly what I envisioned for my wedding and helped me to find the perfect dress. I would recommend Marie Gabriel to any bride-to-be!
This boutique is everything bridal shopping should be and more. The decor, the gowns and the specialized attention makes you feel like the most beautiful bride in the world. Michelle Espinoza,Sales Manager/Senior Bridal Consultant worked with me during my appointment and selected the most fabulous gown. Unlike
bridal shops I felt my bridal consultant was invested in my wants, needs and vision for my special day. If you are looking for gowns make a day of it… hit Sushi on the Rocks downstairs, Marie Gabriel upstairs and enjoy being treated like the beautiful bride you are!
Amazing! I can't sing this shops praises enough! I went to all the wedding dress shops on 82nd Street and this new one surprised me. The staff knows their craft which is key when you are a bride that has no idea what she wants. What I liked about this shop was the attentive personal service. It is nice to know customer service still exist in the world.
What Service Makes this Place Special:
-All alterations included! This is key because I needed major changes.
-Staff simulated all alterations while I was there and did a detail fit for my dress. I was able to get the full visual of what I would look like on the day.
-They offer you water, champagne and a rob to wear between changes.
-You get your own personal dressing room that opens on to your stage and mirror area. This offers more privacy for you and your family instead of the other dress shops that make you walk in front of other shoppers.
-They use an iPad to take your photo and will email you your possible selections.
-This is what a bride should feel like when shopping for her big day.
-They knew what fit my shape best!
Thank you Robin and all MGC Bridal Staff.
I had the opportunity to tour the store and check out the gowns, jewelry, and italian designer suits for men. I found out they also do custom suits for men. They sell undergarments for the bride; such as, floor length slips/shapers, bras and panties by Penrose--simply gorgeous! Marie Gabriel is also the place where I was able to meet Italian designer, Guiseppe Papini, whose high end gowns are a part of the store's couture selections being offered to brides. The store layout features what I like to call mini stages so each bride can feel like a star on her own stage! Ooo La La!! The staff is highly attentive to the needs of the bride. This unique store is a must see!!
I went wedding dress shopping at Marie Gabriel Couture because I was in search of a particular dress by designer Tara Keely. The store helped track down the dress and made my bridal experience better than I could have imagined. The staff was extremely kind and catered to every need I had. I never felt pressured by any of the staff to purchase a gown. This was a wonderful experience and I am so thankful to Marie Gabriel Couture for helping me find my beautiful wedding gown!
Filled with unique and beautiful designs, this store is a great addition to Indianapolis . The customer service I received from Peggy was unparalleled! Definitely ask for her when you go in there.
I have had the absolute BEST experience with Marie Gabriel and everyone there. I couldnt have felt more welcome and not pressured at all. After finding my dress there, everyone has stayed in great contact with me letting me know of sales on jewelry, veils, etc. I could not believe it when I received a hand written thank you from them thanking me for choosing Marie Gabriel! Even the experience of buying the dress was so relaxing and fun with my friends! Definitely the best!
My husband and I are planning a 10th anniversary vow renewal and I've been working with Marie Gabriel Couture for my dress, alterations, accessories, etc. Their store is absolutely gorgeous, the gowns are stunning, the staff is the absolute best and they truly have a passion for what they do. I've been in the bridal industry as a wedding photographer for nearly 20 years and I've not seen this level of service from any other bridal salon. The entire staff is so helpful, I couldn't believe how much time they spent making sure every aspect of my bridal look was perfect. If you don't have a dress for your big day, you MUST check them out!
This is a new bridal store in Indianapolis. There are a few staples to go to in Indy for wedding dresses, but I decided to add Marie Gabriel to the list. I am so glad I did! This was a completely different experience then the other places! They were the most friendly and helpful. I never once felt rushed at all. In fact I was shocked to learn what time it was when we finally left and ended up missing an appointment at one of the standard bridal stores because we were having such a great experience. I had one amazing consultant with me the entire time that helped me pick out dresses and also picked dresses out for me that she thought would look great on me. There were usually a few consultants there to help if needed. They also take pictures of you with an ipad so you can see right away what the dress looks like on you and in pictures.
And of course I have to mention the amazing dresses! They have a large range of dresses and the most unique dresses I've seen. I ended up finding 'the one' here and could not be happier about my decision! I would definitely recommend Marie Gabriel to any bride looking for the perfect dress!
Thank you so much for all of your help yesterday! And on such short notice! Your store is beautiful and the people that work there made the experience amazing. I can't wait to see the dress come together! Now, it's time to hit the gym!
I cannot say enough to express how pleased I am with my experience at Marie Gabriel Bridal Couture. Not only are the dresses beautiful, unique and of superb quality, but the service is outstanding!! Peggy was my consultant and she was fabulous! She is very knowledgeable and extremely good at what she does. The personalized attention from the whole team at the boutique did not go unnoticed. Of course I found the perfect dress at this boutique and at the end of the consultation we were celebrating with mimosas. They also have a fantasitic line of mens tuxedos and formal wear- Italian design and they are a show stopper!! No need to travel miles to the big city to find a premier bridal salon. Visit Marie Gabriel Couture!!! You will not be disappointed!
I cannot even say anything bad about this place! Everyone was wonderful to work with and they had a perfect combination of friendliness and professionalism. I had gone to a few other stores the day I went here and showed the consultant the dresses I liked but hadn't fallen in love with yet. She took from the pictures what looked good on me and what didn't and found me the perfect dress! A little bit of champagne while I shopped didn't hurt either! I would and have recommended this place to anyone looking for their perfect wedding dress.
This was by far the BEST experience I had looking for a dress for my wedding. The entire staff is friendly and knowledgeable! it was wonderful!
This was absolutely the perfect place for me! Michelle was exceptional, and listened so well which made it extremely easy to find the perfect dress! She is amazing at what she does, and I'm so grateful I have had the chance to work with her! I don't think I would've found "the dress" if it wasn't for her!
Marie Gabriel is a fabulous salon. Their dresses were so unique and I felt like my consultant knew me better than I knew myself! Peggy was fabulous! She showed me and helped me pick out dresses to try on based on my likes/dislikes, style, season & venue of my wedding, and many other things. She asked me what dress I would like to try on first and I told her to pick the one she thought would look best. I ended up buying the first dress I tried on! It was perfect. She knew me so well! The experience was amazing and I liked every single dress I tried on but ultimately I knew the first one was it. I loved how they let my friends and family take pictures of all of the dresses as I tried them on! This really helped me make my decision and I know many other bridal salons don't allow this. I would highly recommend this bridal salon! The experience is as unique as the dresses.
You could tell at a glance the quality of the gowns was better than other shops and the service was over the top. It was a wonderful experience with all the staff joining in to give help, allowing us to take photos, offering champagne, doing everything I can imagine to make the day special
I had the most amazing experience at Marie Gabriel's, they are truly the best. I was having very little luck finding a wedding dress where I live in Las Vegas, and happened to be in the Indianapolis area (where my Fiancé is from) so I thought I would make an appointment and check out what they had to offer. I ended up going to my appointment alone, however the entire team made me feel like I was surrounded by my best girl friends. Peggy helped me and was AMAZING. She listened to what I was saying and nailed it with all of her picks. She dressed me head to toe with all of the accessories and was so genuine and excited when I picked the dress!! Due to church restrictions Peggy and Young also came up with a cover up option that will complete my dress perfectly. This is by far the best bridal salon I have ever been to and I definitely think it says something that I will be traveling from Las Vegas to Indianapolis for my dress and fittings!!
I love Marie Gabriel Bridal Couture! All my bridesmaid dress and my mother's dress of was bought there. I am also going to go there to get my designer wedding gown altered. They have lots of beautiful selections of wedding dresses, bridesmaids, and mother of the bride dresses. They really make the appointment special for you and whomever else is with you. They ladies are so sweet and fun that you almost forget you just met them. I have so much fun when I'm there and the ladies just brighten my day! Not to mention, I am a Lazaro bride and Marie Gabriel Bridal Couture has the best selection in Indiana!! You'd have to go to Chicago to see the selection of designer gowns that they have! I highly suggest going here to get your dress especially if you love high quality beautiful designer gowns and want a special experience!
I cannot say enough good things about my experience at Marie Gabriel Bridal Couture! My consultant, Peggy, was so wonderful to work with and so patient in helping me find the perfect dress. As a new bride, wedding dress shopping was at the top of my anxiety list and Peggy really helped to make it a super enjoyable and very special experience. She helped guide me through the process with her expertise, while getting to know me on a personal level and really listening to what I wanted. She also asked great questions to get a sense of what I wanted my wedding to feel like, what I wanted people's reactions to be and what my fiance would want and love as well. Not only was she extremely knowledgeable about all the dresses in the store, but she also brought a great sense of fashion awareness and insight. Young was also so helpful and provided a unique perspective and thoughtful insights. While there were several other brides in the store at the same time, both Peggy and Young truly made me feel like I was the most important person there. But at the same time, Young did a wonderful job connecting and giving attention to each of the brides. I would definitely recommend this place to any bride in search of the perfect dress AND a special, memorable experience. Thank you, Marie Gabriel Couture!
Very pleased with the experience here! I highly recommend. We went in twice, once to see if an appointment would be worth it, as we were very specific in what we were looking for. Ending up making an appointment, and buying a dress AND veil on the spot. They were MORE than respectful of our price point, and flexible in needs in terms of alterations and any questions regarding add-ons. Definitely worth making an appointment!!!!!!
Yesterday was a perfect day shopping for Laura's wedding gown mainly due to your warm honest professional manner. You made this occasion such a wonderful memorable one. I truly cannot thank you enough.
I had the best experience at Marie Gabriel! Celeste was my consultant and she was amazing! She really listened to what I wanted, and seemed to know when we found my dress before I did. She put a veil on me before I even went out to show my family, or see the dress myself. Everyone who came with me were treated to champagne and the kindest service. I got my bridesmaid and jr bridesmaid dress from them also. The Jr Bridesmaid dress I selected wasn't carried by Marie Gabriel, but they made a call and were able to get it for me. I can't say enough about Marie Gabriel. They go above and beyond!
I bought my dress at Marie Gabriel on the first day I went shopping for a dress. My consultant, Celeste, was an absolute delight. She made me feel completely comfortable and excited for my big day and to be dress shopping. She knew what I wanted more than I did and ultimately it was a dress that she pulled that I decided on. 🙂
MG made me feel beautiful the whole time I was there, and treated my friends and family with respect and politeness at all times. I had an absolute blast and would recommend them to everyone!
I want to thank you for your help yesterday in helping Natalie to choose her wedding dress. My son is my only child and I never thought that I would have the opportunity to experience this kind of bridal moment. The experience at Marie Gabriel was exceptional. I wish that I had a daughter to come back with and do it all again. I do have a couple of nieces, one of whom is engaged. Rest assured that I will be singing your praises to my sister and niece. Perhaps I will get to come back with them.
Again, thank you. You were fabulous to work with.
From the time I stepped foot into Marie Gabriel Couture bridal boutique I felt like I was a VIP customer. We were greeted immediately at the door, directed to a comfortable spot to fill out paper work, asked if we needed any refreshments and then introduced to our bridal consultant Peggy Latta. Peggy sat with me and listened to how I imagined I would look on my wedding day and then guided me through the dresses, asking me what I like or did not like about each one. They’re selection was amazing! Beautiful gowns that were different and unique. We pulled approx. 5 dresses and I ended up buying the first one! Peggy was very professional and knowledgeable; she was pleasant and genuinely wanted to help me find the perfect dress. I would highly recommend Marie Gabriel Couture bridal boutique for the a perfect and complete bridal gown experience.
I would recommend Marie Gabriel Couture to any bride-to-be! If you're looking for a VIP experience and gorgeous gowns, I'd have to say Marie Gabriel Couture is the place to go. The store is gorgeous and the staff is extremely warm and welcoming. They truly want their brides to love the dress they choose and I have nothing but great things to say about my consultant, Peggy, as well! She really took the time to get to know me and my tastes and pull dresses accordingly. Peggy was extremely easy to talk to and helped me find my dream dress. Even after making a purchase she continues to stay in touch with me and I can't wait to go back for my fitting and alterations! I can't imagine a better dress shopping experience!
Marie Gabriel created an incredible experience for me on the first day I was trying on wedding dresses! The staff was incredible! I worked directly with Michelle who was so easy to talk to and really made it about me. I felt like she knew me and had a great sense of what would best represent my style/personality on my wedding day within the first 10-15 min of talking with her. She made it so fun for me, my mom, and sister and I would recommend her or Marie Gabriel to any bride!
From the moment I walked in the door I knew this would be a great experience! Their true goal is to make you look and feel great I felt. I honestly left my wallet in the car, I was expecting to just "try on" and see what style I liked etc. By the time I was checking out I couldn't wait to get my bridesmaids in there to try on! Peggy was my consultant, she was genuine and sweet as could be. She was patient with me having no idea what I wanted and very detailed orientated. I felt like even after saying "YES TO THE DRESS" that this wouldn't be a swipe of the card and adios. Peggy contacted me before I even made it home, I felt appreciated as well as my family felt catered too. A small gesture but a big impact is their attention to detail and knowledge of their resources, Couture has a whole new meaning for me now because of Marie Gabriel. I went slightly over budget and would have paid more for the experience and care I received from Peggy and her staff.
I cannot thank Marie Gabriel Bridal Couture enough for helping me achieve the wedding of my dreams!!!!!!!!! After visiting over 20 bridal salons in Kentucky, Ohio, and Indiana, we finally discovered Marie Gabriel Bridal Couture and my dream came true. All of the staff were so friendly and warm! We walked in with no appointment on a Sunday afternoon and was immediately treated like Royalty! They offered my parents and myself drinks/snacks and made us feel soooooo very comfortable with the whole wedding dress/tuxedos experience. Young, the owner of Marie Gabriel, was in constant communication with me making sure everything ran smoothly! Peggy Latta is the most amazing bridal consultant ever in the whole wide world!!!!! She is so warm, kind, loving, and patient!!! Not only did she help me find the dress of my dreams, but she also traveled to my wedding in Holland, Michigan and spent her own personal time (on her birthday) for an entire weekend making sure everything ran smoothly. She arrived at the hotel on Friday night and immediately started hemming and ironing my bridesmaids' dresses. Both her and her daughter, Christine, stayed up until after 1:00am making sure everybody in the wedding party was set and ready to go for the big day! On Saturday, the big wedding day, both her and Christine were by my side dressing me, my mother, my father, my groom, my son, and my bridesmaids. After Peggy and her daughter got us all dressed and ready to go for the big day, they followed me to the church and made sure my dress looked perfect for all the pictures! Peggy and her daughter even held my 30 pound wedding bouquet in between photo shots. Peggy also made sure my train was perfect right before I walked down the aisle. After the ceremony, both Peggy and Christine had to hand pin the 10 layers of tulle under my dress so I wouldn't trip on it during the first dance. Both Peggy Latta and Christine went way above and beyond during my wedding weekend. Even the day after the wedding, Peggy came to my room to take all the pins out of my 10 layers of tulle and to pack the dress up so we could travel back home to Indiana! I am forever sooooo very grateful for the two of them! Thank you again to the whole staff! You are all absolutely amazing!
I recently visited this bridal shop and was absolutely amazed! Not only is it a beautiful facility, with great selection, but it has the most amazing service! I went with a large group of family and friends to look for a dress for my sister's wedding, she wanted all of us to be there and share in the experience. Marie Gabriel Bridal Couture was incredibly accomodating and welcomed ALL of us! Peggy the woman who helped us throughout our appointment was incredibly sweet and mindful of my sister's budget. The owner is a sweetheart and came a mingled with us all! It was a fabulous experience for all of us, taking the stress and anxiety out of wedding dress shopping and replacing it with coffee and champagne! I will be recommended this to all my friends once they are engaged!
I first went to Marie Gabriel Couture on October 12, 2013 when my best friend had a disaster at a chain bridal store picking out a dress. I called Marie Gabriel and they took a last minute appointment. When we walked in, we were a little nervous because of how gorgeous the store is and we worried it would be out of my friend's budget. With out a doubt the consultant knew they could find a dress for me friend. The consultant was absolutely amazing and helped my friend truly decide what she wanted in a dress. That same day my friend said yes to the dress and we celebrated right there in the store! Only a few weeks after that, I scheduled my own appointment to pick out a dress because I knew Marie Gabriel would be the only store I needed to look at! I found my dress after the consultant pulled one from the back that no one had even tried on yet! It was the perfect dress and once again perfect hospitality. Marie Gabriel has the most amazing quality dresses in a decent price range. They are willing to work with customers and even do major alterations to dresses. They truly listen to what the bride wants, but also consider what the entourage of the bride says and what they think will suite the bride. I would recommend this store to everyone!
I started my day with a friend just to "for fun" begin the process of dress shopping. We had an awful experience at a big chain store and she suggested going to Marie Gabriel as she had known someone from high school that now worked there. I went reluctantly, figuring any place with "couture" in the title would be way beyond my budget and would never see me without an appointment. I couldn't be more wrong. Right away they let me in. Celeste was my consultant and seriously you HAVE to request her. She's the best! She sat with me and my friend discussing all the details of my day, my personality, what I had tried before. She gave my friend and I coffee and water, then went off pulling dresses for me. I felt like I was on Say yes to the dress. Celeste made my day. Not only did she pull dresses within my small budget (the $1000 range) she never made me feel pressured to go to a high end designer I couldn't afford. The second dress I tried on was the dress I ended up purchasing. She was there with me through a dramatic phone call with my mom, assuring me she'd be there for me during the whole process. I felt like a queen. I can't thank them enough for making my experience an amazing day. Marie the owner, came to hug me and everyone in the salon cheered for me finding "the dress". I can't gush enough about this place. I'd suggest anyone going in there and having them guide you through what can be a stressful process. I forgot Celeste gave my friend and I champagne to toast finding the dress. All in all she was above and beyond amazing.
I cannot tell you how thankful we are that we found THE dress. We think you were absolutely wonderful through this process and my daughter is so thrilled to have found the dress that made her cry. She didn't believe that this would happen. I cannot wait to see her walk down the aisle in this dress. It is so fabulous and we are so grateful for all of your help. You were amazing!
Thank you so very much,
Mother of Jennifer Seitz
As a woman who has an addiction for TV shows like Say Yes to the Dress and My Fair Wedding, I had extremely high expectations for my bridal gown shopping experience. I started dress hunting at Marie Gabriel and worked with the most pleasant and professional person, Peggy. I was treated like every bride wants to be treated - with respect and care, and I loved my shopping experience. Still not sure if I found "my dress," I travelled to New York and made appointments with highly recommended boutiques, only to realize none of them compared to Marie Gabriel. Marie Gabriel has beautiful couture dresses and an amazing staff to make sure every you go home with "the" dress, in your budget, that you will LOVE! I would tell every upcoming bride to shop with them. Shopping with them has been one of the best experiences of planning my wedding.
