Founded in 1980 in Columbia, Missouri, Nolte's offered gowns, tuxedos, flowers and invitations at one location. This combination of talents led to a rapid success story that encompassed flowers for everything from Inaugural Balls and society weddings, to gowns for Miss Americas and Missouri's most beautiful brides.
As a member of National Bridal Service, Nolte's maintains it's rank for over 33 years in this professional organization of the best 400 stores. Michael Nolte was the organization's first man to receive Wedding Coordinator Certification.
Missouri's first wedding to be featured in a national magazine was designed by Michael Nolte. "Elegant Bride", May 1991, showcased the magnificent event.
In 1992, Nolte's opened the Hawthorne Plaza salon.
Nolte's can order any gown you've ever seen and always price matches a licensed competitor. In an era of discounting to achieve sales, Nolte's flourishes because of our philosophy, "It's better to explain price once than to apologize for poor service or quality forever."
In 2006, N.B.S., awarded Nolte's "Top Ten Couture Salons in the United States."

The Perfect Experience
I cannot say enough wonderful things about Michael and his gorgeous shop! I had looked all around the city, at several different stores for my dress with no luck. I came to Michael and he immediately understood my vision and knew exactly what I wanted. I tried on one dress at Nolte's and that is all it took! They have the most fabulous team there to get you the most perfect dress for your big day!Sent on 12/03/2019

My daughter found her dream dress at Nolte's Bridal. With a little custom tweaking her dress is a one of a kind. Michael Nolte himself, along with Emmalea, took care of us. The service was both personal and intimate. From the high end gown selection, and some at unbelievable discounts, to the atmosphere and service, Nolte's Bridal is a class act.Sent on 04/16/2018

Nothing short of exceptional
From the moment you walk in the door of Michael Nolte's BEAUTIFUL boutique, Michael makes you feel like a princess and treats your mom like a queen. I spent an hour talking to Michael, enjoying champagne, and connecting through mutual friends and family. It was such a great time that I wish we could have spent the whole day there! He was genuinely interested in our story and we even shared our engagement video and pictures. After talking Michael said, "I know THE dress for you." It was perfect. I tried on ONE dress and knew it was the one. It was incredible that Michael could talk to me and know exactly what I needed. He offered tips and tricks to wedding planning that we will definitely use in our wedding. His incredible talent and love for weddings is so special and every bride deserves the experience that Michael and his team can give. I will forever recommend this man and his impeccable taste and talent.Sent on 10/24/2018
