Ummm (clears throat)....have you seen how much wedding gowns cost?
Brace yourself....they usually cost a LOT.
As in an average of $1800....and some reports show an average of nearly $2500.
On a dress. That you will wear for 1 day.
Sure, your wedding gown is important.
Like, super important.
But what if you saved, on average, around $1200 on your gown. That happens All The Time at Formality, because ALL of our gowns are just $999 and under and are purchased "Off The Rack"... which means you get to fall in love with a gown and take it home the very same day!
TAKE IT HOME IMMEDIATELY!!
Sounds pretty basic, right? You buy it, you expect to take it home. But that's not the way it usually works in the bridal world...
At Formality, you won't order a gown and wait for 6 months (or more ) to finally receive it. And no more using your imagination to envision a gown in your size. You get to see it, feel it, touch it and take it home. All while saving a boatload of your hard earned money!
We also believe that buying your dress should be a fabulous experience and a memory you won't forget; regardless of being budget friendly. We deliver a high end, but relaxed experience working with top notch people trained in the bridal industry. Believe us...we know our stuff!
Because you deserve that level of knowledge. And respect. And attention. And guidance. And that's what we do.
Want to know what gowns are in our inventory and how much? Check it out...
We not only post our gowns on our website with sizes AND prices (we believe in full transparency, babe)...we can also offer honest skilled guidance to help you select the best gown for you.
ARE THEY NEW?
We typically purchase gowns directly from the design house, bypassing the middleman and unnecessary markups. Or we get them as sample gowns from high end designer boutiques. So those may have been tried on in other boutiques before they got to us. But either way, a total bargain!!
Wait?....did you hear that we have used gowns? Well, technically a long, long time ago, we use to offer gowns that have been down the aisle.
But not anymore.
Skip ahead if you're ready to book an appointment or browse our gorgeous gowns!
We carry lots of silhouettes and oh so many bridal styles.
Classic, romantic, modern, ball gown, beachy, or boho gowns? Yep.
Satin, Lace, Organza, Chiffon fabrics? Yep
Pure white, ivory, champagne, or blush colors? Yep
Whatever your look is, you won't find a larger assortment of gowns at these prices.
We know that beauty comes in all sizes too....that's why we carry a wide assortment of sizes 4 to 28 that you can buy off the rack.
What about Plus Sizes? We got you girl! We strive to keep 1/3 of our inventory in sizes 16 to 28. And yes, still just $999 and under.
You can browse our current inventory anytime, day or night, in the comfort of your own home. In fact if you love it, you can even purchase it directly from our website!
Want to look at some gorgeous gowns before you decide? C'mon....you know you do!!!
Have you priced bridal accessories at those specialty stores? Girl, you're in for sticker shock! Not at Formality! Just like our gowns, we keep the profits low and rely on smart brides like you to know that a veil shouldn't cost almost as much as a gown, and that you dont have to decide between bridal jewelry and a car payment.
At these prices, all of our sales on gowns are final, and all deposits are nonrefundable.
