Impeccable from start to finish

I did not understand fully what the wedding dress shopping experience should be like until I arrived with my group at The One. The word that comes to mind first is impeccable: the quality and quantity of the gowns available, the service from Peggie and her team, the environment of the shop, everything was a carefully curated experience designed with us in mind.

I brought a couple of my bridal party and MoG with me, and all of us were put at ease from the start. Covid regulations were clearly being followed, but we never felt unnecessarily restricted. My ladies felt comfortable lounging while I dressed and sharing their thoughts while we went through the appointment. I felt that my wishes were kept in mind and that the process to narrow down dresses was extremely collaborative. The team at The One is clearly knowledgeable and experienced, but good-natured and conscientious of wants and needs, budget and venue.

If I had visited The One first, it would have been my only stop. I cannot say enough about how much my group and I enjoyed our experience. I have no doubts that I did find "The One": both the shop, and the dress :D

Amazing experience!

I had an amazing experience finding my wedding dress here! Peggie is very friendly and did a great job selecting dresses for me to try on. I was not expecting to buy a dress yet, but Peggie helped me find the perfect one and so I just had to go for it. The salon is beautiful too, and it is so nice that they only hold one appointment at a time. I would absolutely recommend wedding dress shopping here!

Highly recommend!

I can't say enough positive things about my experience at The One Bridal Salon. I booked a few appointments on the same day at other salons, and The One Bridal was the highlight, by far!

Peggie was flexible when making my appointment and got me in first thing when the salon opened. She took the time to ask questions not just about my style preferences, but about our venue and engagement as well which made the experience feel more personal and supportive. Peggie pulled a number of dresses for me to try, she nailed my style right away. She gave practical advice and asked questions throughout the process.

The salon itself is gorgeous and comfortable, and the customer service is excellent. I did not feel pressured at all to make a decision, and appreciated the follow up from Peggie afterward checking in on my search for the perfect dress. Despite trying on a number of dresses in the weeks following my appointment here, the very first dress that Peggie pulled for me is the one I kept coming back to and chose!
