The Wedding Bell has been in business for over 69 years and is located at 2609 6th Avenue in Tacoma. The store has an interesting history. Mrs. Fontana was the original owner of The Wedding Bell, and she owned it for 47 years before she passed away. She kept newspaper clippings and photographs from every single bride during that time. Ask to see the albums when you visit. They are a unique insight into the history of Tacoma. It is our understanding that Mrs. Fontana even attended the weddings of all her brides and helped them get dressed. We routinely have Wedding Bell brides from 40, 50, even 60 years ago drop by with their daughters and grand-daughters. The Wedding Bell has changed ownership three times since then and is currently owned by Kim Miller. We deliver the individualized attention every bride deserves... So, come experience the difference of a full-service bridal boutique.
An appointment is strongly recommended. Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays are very busy in the salon, so we suggest making an appointment to guarantee that a consultant will be available to help you. If you're not quite sure of your schedule, give us a call to see if we have time for a walk-in appointment. We want to make your entire wedding experience as easy as saying "I do!" Come see for yourself how The Wedding Bell is different from other bridal salons!

The Wedding Bell was the third dress store I had visited. I had already tried on 4-5 dresses at other places and was already dreading going again. I knew what I wanted but wasn't finding anything and started to feel discouraged.Sent on 11/03/2012
My appointment was today, and I have to say I am so happy. My consultant, Shawna did an outstanding job. She listened to ALL the thing I was looking for in a dress. I told her I was worried because I am so picky. Never once was she pushy or persistent.
She was beyond thoughtful when pulling dresses for me, and chose dresses very similar to some of the pictures I had shown her. She clearly was doing a fantastic job, as other consultants kept peeking in our room to borrow dresses she had pulled! Shawna mentioned she had only been there for around 2 months, but you'd never be able to tell..... She seemed to have so much knowledge- and I'm blown away at how amazing my experience was. I had to tell her that I wasn't excited about dress shopping and was dreading the appointment before I got there.
I feel that the entire staff today was great, and very friendly. Aside from that, I loved Shawna as my consultant. It was the absolute best experience I have had with any I my vendors so far. I also appreciate how in contact the owner, Kim is with we store. I was able to make an appointment via email in less than an hour the same day!
Absolutely LOVE the wedding bell & can't wait to see my dress after alterations! I would most definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a special occasion outfit :).
The Wedding Bell's reply:Thanks, Jourdyn, for the sweet review! Talk to you soon!

So thankful we found The Wedding Bell!
Ashley was absolutely amazing to work with. We were lucky enough to get a walk-in appointment at The Wedding Bell not expecting to leave with a dress, but extremely ecstatic when we did. Ashley pulled a couple of dresses she thought would fit me well, and took inspiration from what I told her I liked. We were able to find the perfect dress on her first pull! And Beth was equally as amazing when it came to altering the dress—it fit like a glove on my wedding day! Although the dress was ordered in the smallest size possible, it took a great amount of dedication, time, patience, and talent for Beth to tailor the dress to my size. Beth was also able to create gorgeous bows for my flower girls out of left over fabric from my dress. We are so thankful to have had a wonderful experience at The Wedding Bell and would recommend them to any bride looking for a dress!Sent on 07/09/2021
