Great experience, gorgeous dress
I had a great experience from start to finish working with Tracina and all the Formalities staff I interacted with over the course of planning my wedding. Formalities was one of the first stops my mom and I made when I started trying on dresses, and I’m so glad it was! We lucked out in having Tracina there while I was trying on dresses, because she was so helpful in the process. Whether it was clipping the dresses to get a better idea of how they would look on me, or adding a veil to get the full effect, or wondering aloud about ease of alterations, she was ready to help with anything. I love the variety of dresses they have available to try on, and that there were plenty in my size or that could at least be clipped to give me an idea. The lighting and mirrors were great to see the dress from different angles. I ended up feeling torn between two dresses, both available to order through Formalities. I so appreciated the staff’s patience with me as I came back a different day to try on both again! Once I decided on the dress & accessories, Formalities was great about helping me decide on sizing and ordering everything quickly for me. Everything arrived beautiful as expected. The seamstress who works out of the upstairs at Formalities worked some magic altering lace sleeves on my gown. Formalities did a great job having my dress looking beautiful for my wedding day!Sent on 11/11/2019

I loved working with Formalities and seamstress Theresa! After trying a number of bridal salons across PA and VA, I found a beautiful and unique lace dress at Formalities that I loved -- it was unfortunately discontinued and a size much larger than what I needed. The shop assured me that Theresa could alter the dress easily, and I decided to take the chance and buy it off the rack. As promised, Theresa was a miracle worker, and the dress fit wonderfully for my wedding! I loved it and can't recommend this shop enough.Sent on 09/03/2018
Glad to have such expertise in Central Pennsylvania. I'm a wedding photographer, and I always ask brides where they found their dress, because it's an important part of what I do. I want to be able to make a good recommendation for those who ask my opinion, partly for selfish reasons, because a better dress makes for better photos. Everybody wins. When I don't know the answer in advance, I can usually tell before they say a word when it's from Formalities. Tracina's expertise and fitting absolutely makes a difference in my photographs.
Formalities has a beautiful selection of gowns for prom and wedding. Tracina and her staff are very knowledgeable and most helpful.
Tracina and the entire team at Formalities are a great crew that will work with you to make sure you look your best on your wedding day. They're always keeping up with the trends and have a great selection at their store!
