Alicia's Bridal and The Formal House have been the Bellingham tradition for over 59 years. We have had the pleasure of dressing brides and grooms worldwide. We pride ourselves in providing Bellingham, Mount Vernon, Everett, Seattle, and British Columbia, Canada with the most up to date fashion trends. We are less than an hour from Everett with service and savings worth the trip! Oh, the traffic is better too! Brides tell us all the time that our selection is one of the best in Western Washington with over 250 styles and moderate price points to choose from. We search to find the most attractive designs to flatter all figures in all price ranges. Together, Alicia's offers a moderate to couture selection that you can afford and The Formal House offers the only in stock inventory in the area with over 4000 tuxedos and suits.

Don't forget to check our Events tab to see what is happening in the store each month!

As a service oriented establishment, Alicia's represents our area with hand-picked, quality merchandise and meticulous attention to detail. Our main salon carries some of the best designers in the world; some of which are Justin Alexander Bridal, Justin Alexander Signature, Sincerity Bridal, Lillian West Bridal, Maggie Sottero, Mori Lee, White One, Willowby by Watters, Mori Lee bridesmaids, Gather & Gown bridesmaids, Bari Jay bridesmaids, Social Occasions mother's & Cameron Blake mother's. Our price range is $400 to $2900 at the main store and $49 to $899 at our outlet. The outlet is only open on Saturdays. The main store is open 5 days a week. We have beautiful dresses and excellent customer service that make your wedding process fun, the way it should be. We've been doing this for over 55 years and we are pretty darn good at it! We have received the Wedding Wire Gold badge which means more reviews from our customers about our great service!

Never Trust The Tuxedo You Can't Try On First! At The Formal House you don't have to... Would a Bride try on her dress for the first time the day before her wedding? Of course not! The Groom shouldn't have to either. Try the actual tuxedo on when you order it, not when you pick it up. How can we do that? We have 4000 tuxedos and suits right here in our Bellingham store!

I had a very pleasant experience at Alicia's Bridal. They didn't overwhelm me with dresses and I didn't feel pressured at all to make an immediate decision. Found my dress at the first bridal salon I visited! I would recommend Alicia's to anybody looking for an easy high quality experience.

I loved my experience at Alicia's Bridal! I went to several different stores, but none of them could compare to the service I received at Alicia's. My consultant, D.J., did an amazing job finding dresses that looked good and were comfortable for me. She also has a great personality and made the experience fun!

DJ was so helpful when showing us around the store and helping pick out gowns! My family with me had a few picks and she was able to take what I liked/disliked about each and come up with compromises and found other dresses that just tweaked them slightly to make them suit me better. I am still shopping, but the treatment we received at Alicia's was great, and I hope to be able to order my dress with DJ!

When I went to Alicia's Bridal, it was my sixth time trying on wedding dresses. I was starting to feel like I wasn't going to find "the one" as everyone describes it. The other bridal stores that I went to felt impersonal. As soon as I walked in to Alicia's I was greeted with warm smiles and helped right away. My consultant, DJ, was absolutely fabulous. I felt that she quickly understood my vision for a dress. She was very easy to talk to and made me feel completely comfortable. She also helped me to make the hard decisions on certain dresses that just weren't for me. I ended up buying my Justin Alexander dream of a dress there last weekend. I am absolutely ecstatic! I am so happy that I found the dress that suits me and will really make me shine on my wedding day. Thanks so much, DJ!!

Buying my wedding dress at Alicia's was a really great experience. The atmosphere in the store is very laid back, no-pressure. Taylor, my consultant, made me feel comfortable as she helped me get into and out of many dresses. She was patient, never rushed me, and didn’t do any “hard sell” to make me feel like I had to purchase on the spot. She made my dress shopping experience a really positive, fun adventure! I found my dress, and purchased it on that visit. I would recommend Alicia’s to anyone who is looking for a relaxed, positive, stress-free dress shopping experience.

I live in Vancouver, BC, but was going to be in Bellingham so I thought I'd check out Alicia's Bridal in the downtown area. I made an appointment via email and got a confirmation the next business day. I arrived and was warmly greeted by Tiffany. Tiffany was so fun, approachable and open to my vision (which was a little quirky). She pretty much knew what kind of style I wanted within the first 5 minutes of our appointment. She was so helpful the entire time and was very patient and I could tell she actually cared about her client. Even though I did end up purchasing my wedding dress back in Vancouver, I would definitely recommend Alicia's Bridal (especially if you can get Tiffany!) for a wonderful and stress free wedding dress shopping experience.
