Love Notes

I cannot say enough great things about this store. On my first day of dress shopping I had an appointment at David’s Bridal to try to figure out what style I liked best. I showed up for my appointment but they had lost it. They didn’t seem to care either. They told me I could wait around for 45 minutes to see if one of the other brides didn’t show up. I called A Formal Occasion and told them I didn’t have an appointment, but explained what happened with DB and they told me come right over. They made room for me. :-) As soon as I walked through the door I was greeted with smiling faces and excitement. They were so thrilled for me to be getting married. I showed a few pictures of what I liked and they knew exactly what to pull for me. It only took about 3 dresses for me to find my perfect dress. This place is a diamond in the rough. I am so glad David’s Bridal lost my appointment. My dress was amazing and not like any other dress I had seen. You guys are amazing and so good at what you do. I will always refer any new bride I encounter to you. 😘

Hands down the nicest people in the world! Got my prom dresses from them in high school and my more recent purchase was my wedding dress. My private bridal session was so memorable. Beautiful gowns, reasonable prices, and precious people!

I couldn’t imagine getting my dress from anywhere else! As soon as I walked in Lucinda sat me down and wanted to get to know more about me and my fiance as well as the type of wedding I was having. From there she picked out dresses that she thought I would like. I went with a fairly large group and not on purpose but my voice was starting to get lost. Lucinda noticed this immediately and looked at me and she said what do you want to try on. She made sure that she was catering to me and no one else. The first dress that I tried on was the one! I had other appointments and to be honest as soon as I left the shop I didn’t want to go anywhere else. I highly recommend you looking for your wedding dress at A Formal Occasion!

I got my dress here! It was the first and last place I tried on dresses. I loved my experience! I had the salon to myself, the staff were very friendly and knowledgeable! My dress turned out beautifully! Highly recommend they are amazing!

5. Stars. Wouldn’t go anywhere else to have purchased my daughters wedding dress! We purchased all of her prom dresses there also. Lucinda and Katie are very welcoming and take their time with you. The dresses are one of a kind. As most bridal shops u see more than one of the same dress, not at A Formal Occasion. If you want to have a unique and have a one of a kind dress, come to A Formal Occasion. Thank you Lucinda and Katie.

I found out about A Formal Occasion through a Facebook group. The day I called to book my appointment, I knew there was something special about this place. They spent 20 minutes on the phone getting to know me and what I was looking for in my wedding dress. I had my appointment this past friday and it was a wonderful experience. They even had a little gift waiting for me! I’m pleased to say that I found my dress AND it was well within my budget!! They even gave me a little surprise afterwards and I got to sign the wall <3 I would highly recommend AFO. It was a very special day for me.

A Formal Occasion is right down the street from where I live and let me tell you.. What a gem! They made me feel welcomed and special the entire time I was there. Katie was an absolute superstar—totally got me and my vision for my wedding. She was so patient with me and provided great insight when I was stuck between two dresses. The shop also had an amazing inventory of dresses... ranging in a bunch of different sizes so you get to actually try on dresses in your size! I’m so happy I decided to go here!

Love this place! I went in on a whim with my mom and I’m so glad I did! I had no idea what styles I liked, or where to even begin when wedding dress shopping, but Katie was super patient and helpful. Through all of my indecisiveness, she ended up finding the perfect dress for me after listening to my comments on the first few dresses I tried on. I wouldn’t have found it without her! I’m so thankful for her and the rest of the people at A Formal Occasion; they were all so sweet and they took the time to help me find my dream dress for the best day ever!
