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!

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

I loved finding my dress here at A Formal Occasion. Lucinda helped me to talk through my favorite dress here as well as my favorite dresses at other shops to make sure I was truly finding MY dress. It was great to be the only bride and had a true 1-on-1 experience! It was wonderful!Sent on 02/06/2018

This place is the BEST! Katie did an amazing job in listening to my desires and critiques. She ended up pulling a dress that I had not even chosen off the rack based on my opinions. It is definitely the dress of my dreams and I could not be happier. :) I can't wait for my husband-to-be to see me in it! Katie followed up with me after the purchase with a handwritten congratulations note! A Formal Occasion definitely knows how to personalize the dress experience and make it enjoyable for both the bride and guests. Thank you for helping me find my perfect dress!!!!Sent on 01/02/2018
