Meet Our Team

Bridal and Formal began as a corner store in Cincinnati, Ohio, and is now a family-owned business. We started our journey in 1969 with only two staff. We have grown to over 30 employees at our site in the heart of The Reading Bridal District. With over 50 years of combined sales expertise, our mission is to make your wedding vision a reality with our assistance.
We look forward to assisting you from the moment you walk in until you depart with your dream dress. Before booking your appointment, please get to know our stylists and managers better.
