When finding the perfect dress is also about enjoying the experience, we look forward to fulfilling that dream.
We have a more personal approach and believe there is more to making a bride happy than just selling her a dress.

We understand that each bride is different and has her own special needs. For this reason, we stock gowns in size 2-24 that are available for try-on and immediate purchase or by special order if a different size or color is needed. Our prices range from $300 - $1900.

In addition, we have an extensive selection of informal dresses for outside or destination weddings. We also showcase many styles that are exclusive to our shop, thereby not seen elsewhere.

If your desire is to have a unique and pleasant experience that won't be found at a large chain store, we invite you to come in and experience the difference!

We truly believe it's all about you! Read less

I walked in randomly on a Tuesday morning and Lucinda made me feel like I had an appointment just for me. She was receptive to my likes and understood my budget. I was given undivided attention, and found my perfect dress. Every time I went in after, even on a whim, she made sure I was looked after and got the attention I needed.

With three months to prepare for a wedding, most bridal shops confined me to their sample rack of goofy dresses. I walked into A Formal Occasion and Lucinda knocked my socks off with the intimate, personalized showing of a HUGE variety of quality of dresses! They were so beautiful!! I'm a slow thinker when it comes to big decisions, and she was SO gracious and SO helpful. Her advice was precious, as she encouraged me to consider an array of factors I'd never thought of in order to find the perfect dress for me. Pushing a sale was NOT her agenda, as she truly wanted to help me and give me peace of mind whether I found a dress or not. I've never seen so much care in a business. Again, I am astounded by A Formal Occasion. I have lived in the area my whole life and I never knew this place was such a treasure!

I had an amazing experience at A Formal Occassion. This was the second bridal salon I went to and ended up deciding on my dress by the end of the appointment. The staff is extremely professional, helpful, and friendly. They made this experience for me, my mom & my sister so fun and enjoyable. They have a beautiful selection of dresses and I highly recommend them!

This shop greeted me with warmth and professionalism from the first point of contact. They definitely offer a very personalized service and my stylist really had a good understanding of what style of dress I was after. Every dress she picked out I loved and I ended up finding my ideal wedding dress at this store. It definitely was love at first sight with this dress.
The owners and staff are absolutely lovely and they try go out of their way to give you find what you're looking for. If you don't feel like a bride a yet or haven't enjoyed the experience of wedding planning, you definitely will once you go to this store.

I know of A Formal Occasion from Lucinda's daughter so I wanted to start there with my dress shopping. That was the best decision possible! Lucinda greeted me as I walked in, catered to me, helped me figure out what I want in a dress, the practicality of each dress for the wedding, was very patient as we found the dress, contacted the distributor immediately to see if the back could be made differently, and we got it ordered that day.
A Formal Occasion is much nicer than the chain stores and it was well worth the drive from North Carolina to get a dress there.
Every dress has a built in bra so you don't awkwardly have to wear a strapless bra all day.

We purchased my daughters wedding dress here, we drove over 50 miles to this location and I have to say they had a ton of different dresses to choose from. We were very pleased with our purchase and everyone loved loved loved the dress/color of the dress. Maggie Sottero was the brand.

My sister in law recommended A Formal Occasion when we first started looking at wedding dresses. We went there first and I found the perfect dress but wasn't sure it was "the one" since I hadn't tried on dresses anywhere else. We spend the rest of the day looking at larger, chain stores but in the end returned to A Formal Occasion. They provide great customer service and really take the time to make sure you find your perfect dress, unlike those chain stores where we were rushed and crowded. At A Formal Occasion we had the wedding dress area to ourselves. I was also lucky enough to find out that they had my size in stock, so I didn't have to order it. Overall my experience at A Formal Occasion was perfect

So as a young bride finishing her last year in college, I was not looking forward to the stress of wedding dress shopping. However, A Formal Occasion was recommended by a friend so I decided to give it a try. BEST DECISION EVER! Although it is a small shop, they have a wide selection of the most beautiful gowns in every single style. They were accommodating to my schedule. Even when I had to reschedule several times. I am extremely picky and detail oriented but my consultant was understanding and knowledgeable. This was my first stop and I found my dress in less than an hour! I didn't buy the same day and they didn't pressure me. When I brought my large family back to look at the dress with me they were professional and understanding. They were knowledgeable and respected my budget. I ordered my dress and it came early! To all the brides in the Metro Atlanta area, this will be your first and last stop. So stress free! Finding my gown was so much fun and I got so many compliments. I loved my Maggie Sottero!
