STYLISTS

Jacqui Wadsworth
Proprietor
Jacqui Wadsworth is an expert in the textile industry. After years successfully negotiating thread and fabric contracts with mills and factories across the world Jacqui was offered a deal on a lot of wholesale wedding gowns. Since she was getting married, she thought, "Why not?" That fateful deal produced the perfect dress for her own wedding and instilled in her a love of all things bridal. By 2006 she opened the first Gilded Gown on Chapman Highway. That award winning boutique has since grown into the 6400 square foot emporium currently located in Knoxville Center Mall. Jacqui loves to share the beautifully curated dresses, stunning jewelry and sparkling prom gowns that she sources at market each season.
