Classic Bride
& Formals


Highly Recommend! When I went wedding dress shopping, I had appointments at three different bridal shops. At the very first shop, I found the most beautiful dress that brought my mom to tears. This dress cost $6000 which was way out of my price range. I left feeling discouraged and didn't know if I would find my dress that day. When I arrived at Classic Bride and Formals, I told Kristy my dilemma and showed her a picture of the out of reach dress. She was amazing! She brought me a selection of dresses and I found the perfect dress that even brought me to tears. I had the "Say Yes to the Dress" moment that every bride dreams of. It was absolutely stunning and in my price range! After the dress purchase, she helped me find accessories, shoes, my rehearsal dinner dress, and was always available if I had any questions. I highly recommend going to see Kristy and Phaedra at Classic Bride and Formals!

Absolutely magically. From the moment I booked my appointment to when I bought my perfect dress everything was absolutely perfect. Between the boutique set up in a cute little house to how welcome Kristy and all the other employees were, it felt like I was shopping for my perfect dress in the midst of my very own dress shop. My bridesmaids and I were able to walk around the shop, look, touch and then "pin" the dresses I wanted to try on, in addition to the few that were already pulled based on my survey prior to arriving. Once I found "the one", Kristy worked with me to make sure every detail of my attire was what I imagined. I recommend and will continue to recommend Classic Bride & Formal to all my friends looking for all their wedding dress needs!

THEY ARE THE BEST. I tried several different bridal salons before I came to Classic Bride & Formals and I was starting to become discouraged. I always knew of the shop, as I am from the area, but I just hadn't made it out there yet. Needless to say, I am beyond thankful that I waited to make a decision before I had a chance to come to Classic Bride and Formals. All of the dresses were absolutely beautiful (and affordable)! You also had your own bridal room to enjoy the experience with your friends/family without feeling like you're on stage for the entire shop to see. The staff was excellent and picked out "the one" for me just based on what I had described to them. I will only send my friends and family to Classic Bride and Formals for a wedding gown!!!
