When finding the perfect dress is also about enjoying the experience, we look forward to fulfilling that dream.
We have a more personal approach and believe there is more to making a bride happy than just selling her a dress.
We understand that each bride is different and has her own special needs. For this reason, we stock gowns in size 2-24 that are available for try-on and immediate purchase or by special order if a different size or color is needed. Our prices range from $1000 - $2500.
In addition, we have an extensive selection of informal dresses for outside or destination weddings. We also showcase many styles that are exclusive to our shop, thereby not seen elsewhere.
If your desire is to have a unique and pleasant experience that won't be found at a large chain store, we invite you to come in and experience the difference!
We truly believe it's all about you!

Brides to be -- Wonderful Experience!
Lucinda was amazing! She listened to every aspect of how I wanted to look on my wedding day and pulled the dresses that best fit my expectations. She even pulled a dress I wasn't crazy about, but as soon as I put it on, I knew it was the one.Sent on 06/11/2019
We didn't feel rushed and had her attention through the appointment the entire time. I even took the dress home with me THAT DAY!
It was a great experience and I would definitely recommend A Formal Occasion to everyone!

Absolutely IN LOVE with this shop! There’s a reason they have been in business for so long, they know how to make magic happen. After falling “ in love “ with the window display I just had to call and make an appointment to try it on. I was able to make an appointment for the very next morning. Normally you’d think an appointment would mean you get one person to help you pick and try on dresses, not here. Not only were we THE ONLY people in the shop ( because that’s how they do things here) I was helped by Katie and the owner Lucinda. I basically gave them my Pinterest board ideas , told them my vision, and they picked out a handful of dresses that matched both. After only 5-6 dresses I tried on a dress I normally would not of chosen for myself and there it was MAGIC! I found my dress! On my first appointment at my first shop! These ladies know how to treat you and make you feel like you are the most important bride in the world and they truly care about making your dress shopping experience stress free, relaxing, and fun. I would highly recommended you make this your first stop, but don’t be sad when you find your dress on the first visit and realize your search is over. You still have your vail and accessories to get, and yes they can help you there too!!Sent on 03/07/2018

Friendly, personal service; beautiful selection
They have a wonderful wedding dress selection here for brides of all sizes (bridesmaids dresses are a little more typical "sample size" range). The shopping experience is relaxed and personal, the dresses are beautiful and in such a variety of styles! Don't be put off by the fact that it's in a small former house-- there are a TON of dresses inside. Both my best friend and I got our wedding dresses here-- separated by about 5 years, so their quality is consistent.Sent on 05/27/2019
