Our History

Bridal and Formal, Inc. is a Cincinnati, Ohio-based, family owned business that began its history in 1979.

Opening as a corner store with only two employees, they have since grown to be one of the largest bridal stores in the country. Having had major expansions every few years and now having a staff of more than fifty people, Bridal and Formal has grown to offer a full range of services and merchandise for every bride on her wedding day.

For over a quarter of a century, Bridal and Formal’s success in the bridal industry has allowed them to maintain an excellent reputation with their clients, as well as enabling them to have close, long-term relationships with all of the major designers.

Their rapid growth in size parallels the number of the designers they carry. Originally featuring only five, today you’ll find that their list of designers exceeds 50. Furthermore, Bridal and Formal has over 3,000 bridal gowns in their store. Feel confident that there is something to fit the individual needs of every bride in this store.

Carrying the largest selection of dresses is only part of what makes Bridal and Formal such a unique and dynamic store. They place great emphasis on extensively training their employees so that brides are immediately greeted by knowledgeable and skilled experts when they walked through their front door.

In addition to carrying bridal gowns, Bridal and Formal offers a wide selection of veils, headpieces, bridesmaid’s dresses, mother-of-the-bride dresses, flower girl dresses, gifts, accessories, undergarments, and jewelry.

Bridal and Formal understands that choosing a bridal gown is an important and exciting decision, and they are firmly committed to making all brides look and feel beautiful on their wedding day.
