Let the Interview Begin!
Connie, tell us about Anna Maria Bridal!
Our shop opened in August of 2019 after a dear friend of ours sold it to us. My daughter's wedding was in May of 2019, and she had bought her gown from the previous owner. We jumped into it head first and really love what we do. We make every appointment a personal, intimate experience for every bride that comes through our door. We offer a beautiful selection of affordable gowns for every shape and size out there. We believe that every woman should feel as beautiful as possible on their wedding day and we want to make them feel as special as possible when they come to see us.
What are your prices like?
We offer a variety of prices on our gowns. We have made our inventory as budget friendly as possible. We have two different sections of gowns girls can shop from. One side is sample gowns that we measure you for and re-order according to size and color you want. These gowns range anywhere from $1,000-2,700. On average these gowns run around $1,300-1,400. We also have a section of "off the rack" gowns that are sample gowns we sell directly from the store. These gowns work well for brides who are in a time crunch or brides who need to stick to a stricter budget. They range anywhere from $99-999.
What types of dresses do you carry?
We carry two different designers in our store and several different lines. The two different designers we carry are Essense of Australia and Justin Alexander. We carry the Essense line Stella York and the Justin Alexander lines Justin Alexander signature, Lillian West, and Sincerity. We have many different styles of gowns in different fits such as ballgown, fit and flare, and a-line. We are selling bridesmaid gowns off the rack that are Sorella Vita and gather and gown.
Do you offer accessories?
We do offer accessories. We offer various veils, headpieces, hair pieces, garter belts etc. We are hoping to expand this soon.
Do you offer alterations or customizations?
We do not offer in house alterations, however depending on the gown certain customizations can be made with designers.
What can I expect at an appointment?
When you come to Anna Maria Bridal for an appointment you will be welcomed into a casual, friendly, and warm environment. We will talk to you about your wedding details, expectations, budget... and get to know you and what you're looking for. We will show you around the shop and where all of the gowns are. We will step back and allow you to look around, and will grab whatever you want to try on for you. Once you're in the dressing room we will help you get into the gowns while your friends and family sit in the waiting area, and then will guide you to them. Our environment is extremely laid-back, and low pressure. We want to help you find "the one!"
We do take walk-ins, however appointments will always take priority so we do encourage them. To set up an appointment you can visit our website at annamariabridalshop.com to book, or reach out to us on Facebook or Instagram. You can also email us or call or text our store cell phone.

What is my relationship to the featured wedding vendor? I am always transparent with my audience. This vendor was hand selected by me to feature in this post. They were charged a small fee to cover my time in creating their feature as this provides a means for me to earn an income. I reached out to them and offered the opportunity, they did not seek me out looking to advertise. I only feature venues and vendors I truly think are great!
