About Us


The Beginning

Since 1975 Nicole Bridal & Formal has been making Brides’ dreams come true.

With over 61 years of experience in alterations and dressmaking, Nicole of Nicole Bridal has mastered the reputation of mixing style and craftsmanship with every dress that has walked out her doors. Brides continue to return to Nicole Bridal today with daughters, nieces, and granddaughters, fondly remembering their dress shopping journey while a new generation carries on the tradition.

Family owned and operated, Nicole and Marina have worked together over the years to create an environment of class that makes each dress shopping experience memorable for every bride that comes to Nicole’s.

Where we are now

Nicole Bridal has brought a new addition to the shop to continue a tradition of quality customer care and personalized experiences

With 8+ years of experience in corporate design and merchandising, as well as a background in making custom formal wear gowns, Maria aims to provide each bride with a knowledgeable, fun, and special experience shopping for the most important gown of your life.
