Alicia's Bridal and The Formal House have been the Bellingham tradition for over 55 years. We have had the pleasure of dressing brides and grooms worldwide. We pride ourselves in providing Bellingham, Northwest Washington, 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! 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.
The perfect partners for your wedding! Check out the Event tab for our Justin Alexander & Sincerity Trunk Shows and Huge Sample sale in November!

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. Our price range is $400 to $3000 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!

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! Read less

I had an amazing experience at Alicia's Bridal! I live in Seattle and was going to be in Bellingham for the weekend, and Alicia's Bridal was able to fit me in for an appointment (contacting me to confirm the appointment on a day the store was closed).

My consultant, Tiffany, listened to what I wanted, was so kind, and encouraged me to go outside of my comfort zone to find what I really wanted. I ended up choosing the fourth dress I tried on and am so excited to wear it! The dress is gorgeous and is way below my budget. All in all, it was a fantastic day!!

I drove from Vancouver Canada to look for my wedding dress, this was the second bridal shop visit and I found my lovely dress thanks to their great inventory. I was also amazed by their verity of styles and the prices.

I had the best experience with Alicia's bridal, from the moment I walked in I was received and welcomed in a very friendly manner. Tiffany helped me to find my dress and I end up falling in love with exactly what I was looking for thanks to her patience while helping me try different dresses. The dress also arrived in a very timely manner and I highly recommend shopping with them.

I was extremely impressed with the quality of service provided by Alicia's Bridal. My consultant, Tiffany, was fun and energetic and really helped the appointment to move along smoothly. She was flexible with helping me find and try on different styles, and she made the appointment very enjoyable. I also appreciated the reasonableness of the prices of the dresses and was able to find a stunning dress without breaking the bank. Thank you so much for your awesome service!

Tiffany was amazing! From the moment my family and I first came in she was friendly, caring and professional. She listened to what I wanted and kept in line with my budget.

Being Canadian this was the first Washington store I went to and ended up purchasing my dress from. And the reason was the reasonable prices and service I received especially from Tiffany- she made the whole experience so comfortable and fun. The dress came earlier than expected and they were accommodating to my schedule. I've now had my first fitting done and I'm even more excited.

If you're from BC and looking for a great dress with reasonable prices and amazing service I highly recommend Alicia's. Thanks Tiffany!

Tiffany was excellent! She was highly professional, respectful and so very kind. Trying on wedding dresses can be an uncomfortable, humbling experience but Tiffany was patient, kind, understanding, and just so very sweet. She was also very knowledgeable about wedding dresses and all alterations. She seemed like an expert in her field. I had a wonderful experience. It exceeded my expectations and made me want to go back. Thank you, Tiffany!

This was the easiest and most stress free part of the planning I've done and it's due entirely to the professional and knowledgeable people at Alicia's bridal. I had Tiffany Holden as my consultant and I think the fact that she generally seems to care about you and your event and wants to help you find the perfect dress that you've dreamed of and she really listens, is what made it such an easy and stress free decision to pick the dress. The other people I worked with were the owners, Pam Needham, who knows designers sizes very well and was able to get the perfect size dress ordered for me, even though based on my measurements I was between sizes and we also worked with Mark Needham for my fiances tuxedo. He had been to other tux shops and the experience had felt like the fast food version of tuxedo shopping and so when he came to the formal house he loved the fact that Mark really knows about mens formal wear. He ended up buying his tuxedo instead of renting it because we're from Seattle but it arrived already and is perfect for him. I would recommend this place to anyone who wants a stress free and relaxing experience with friendly and extremely experienced and knowledgeable staff who realize how important and special your day is to you and genuinely care and want to help. The service you'll experience here is unmatched by any other bridal shop I've been in and, that's why I traveled back and forth from Seattle just to go to Alicia's.

Dana at Alicia's helped me with both my wedding dress and my groom's suit choices. She's been incredible for both experiences, keeping in good contact on the shipping time for my dress, along with my bridesmaids dresses and offering great advice during everything. I went into the shop not having any idea what I was doing really and she put my mind at ease, explaining to me how everything works and was a great support during this very exciting but high stress time. Anytime I have needed anything or had questions she has always been quick to get back to me or offer a solution and that alone makes this part of this journey very smooth! These guys are great and I would recommend them to anyone!
Thank you Dana, your amazing!

Alicia's Bridal has truly taken care of me. Pam is such an involved owner in her shop. She was so gracious to let me change my dress after making an impulsive mistake..I am SO glad she let me do that b/c I am SO in love with my new dress. I had seen the dress before in magazines but could not locate it at any bridal salon until one day I just happened to stop by Alicia's with my mom to look at mother of the bride dress and BAM there it was! Dress of my dreams! My situation was unique and most brides are unable to switch but since my original dress was not a "made to order" gown and had no alterations completed on it she let me try on my dream dress and the rest is history! She made my dreams come true!...After the whole dress changing fiasco I was unsure on who my consultant was going to be..When I called Alicia's to make my "finishing touches" appointment I didn't know who I was going to be working with seeing how I had already worked with a few different consultants. The employee on the phone was Dana, and I had seen her in the store and thought she seemed like such a bubbly, fun person! Which is EXACTLY what you want when you are buying a dress! After explaining how I didn't want to hurt anyone's feelings while sort of feeling like an orphan bride, she took me under her wing and has been just lovely! Dana loves to laugh and have fun all while providing the professionalism that you desire as a bride. She is one of those people who you become immediately friends with! Her radiant energy and happiness are contagious and make the dress buying process a breeze. I can't wait to continue my journey as a bride with her and look forward to each appointment I have at Alicia's....But as a whole I want to thank everyone at Alicia's Bridal for all of their help!

I found a dress that I liked, but wasn't 100% about and the girl mentioned that they had an outlet around the corner. I ended up finding my perfect dress there even though I had low expectations. The girls that work for Alicia's are amazing and the one that helped me at the outlet showed me different ways to dress up what was a somewhat simple dress. The main store also did my garter in my colors and it was wonderful, it was a bit large for my leg, but stayed up thanks to my toss garter and afterwards when it wouldn't stay up it ended up on my arm and everyone remarked on how cute it was. They are definitely one of my favorite bridal shops and have dresses that work in any price range, which is great. They also don't try and push you to buy a dress that is more than what you want to spend, and made sure not to pull any that were more than my mom or I wanted to spend, which was awesome.

Alicia's Bridal and the Formal House were hands down the best choice for my wedding dress, my mom's dress, and for the formal wear for the guys in our group. They carried one of the most unique dresses I could find and charged significantly less than the only other bridal shop (which was in Seattle) who carried the same style. I ordered my dress almost a year before the wedding date and they stored my dress for me until I picked it up the day before the wedding, free of charge the entire time. When we ordered my mom’s dress a few months before the wedding they also stored her dress for us until the day before. Additionally, they also pressed both our dresses, twice free of charge – which is great because so many of my friends have had to pay an additional fee to other shops to press their dresses. They also offer in-house alterations (for an additional fee), which made my life much easier since they stored my dress, I just had to drive to the bridal shop for all my appointments and I didn’t have to haul anything to anyone. Patty did both my and my mom’s alterations and she is hands down the most unbelievably talented seamstress and sweet person ever.
Alicia’s also works with the Formal House, which takes care of all men’s formal wear and truly makes this unique store a one-stop-shop. All of my husband’s friends and family are from out of state, so everyone just sent their measurements into the store. Knowing that they had all their items in house was reassuring in case someone needed a different size coat or pant. They were even able to fit my father in law who has a very solid 6’4 build without a problem. On the wedding day all the men looked amazing and their tuxedos fit them perfectly.
I have experienced nothing but top level and personalized service from the owners, Pam & Mark as well as their very personable and fantastic consultants throughout the entire wedding planning and prepping process.

I love Alicia's Bridal!! It's family owned and run, so they really care about their customers. They'll spend as much time as needed to find the dress that is perfect for you. I bought my dress off the floor because I needed it quick and I got a huge discount! They altered it there for me and it turned out amazing. They helped me find a veil that went well and I always felt valued and appreciated by the staff. If you're anywhere in the area - you've got to go here. Support the local business - forget David's!! Alicia's is where it's at!

I purchased my wedding dress from Alicia's and was so happy with the service I received there. I had been dress shopping at various other places and no one treated me nearly as well as I was treated at Alicia's. The associates were incredibly friendly and had so many random gems of advice that I never would have known without going there! They treated me like a friend every time I came in and had no problem letting me try on my dress over and over and over again before I finally picked it up. They have a seamstress they partner with and she did a fantastic job making my dress fit me like a glove! I am so impressed with their service and wish I had a reason to shop there again!

Ciarra was wonderful, helpful, went above and beyond to help me find a bridal shop in Spokane that would alter my dress. She was honest, sincere and helpful, professional and followed-through. As always, Alicias was the place to go.

I went to a dress fitting with a friend at Alicia's Bridal. It was a very pleasant experience. The staff are helpful and friendly, and there are a lot of beautiful dresses! My only complaint would be that it's a little pricey, but maybe that was just me. I didn't have a big dress budget!

They're great. I found my dress in the Outlet store and picked jewelry and a headpiece from the main store. Everything came in on time. My only problem ended up being with my bridesmaid dresses. Which weren't in stock after we'd ordered them. The problem was corrected though and I received a full refund.

I'm so happy I found Alicia's Bridal! With the shop being over an hour away from home it was definitely out of my way, but their responsiveness and customer service were impressive and the trip up to visit was well worth it. I not only found my perfect wedding dress there, but also another special occasion dress as well! Thanks, Alicia's Bridal!

I loved working with Gretchen, she had me try on a dress I was just okay with and it turned out to be the one! She was really tuned into me in just one visit! I love my dress and I loved working with the ladies there they were all so nice tome and didn't mind me coming to "visit" my dress there every few weeks. At first they measured me incorrectly and they sent the dress back and got me a new one before my wedding at no extra cost to me.

I probably went to Alicia's 3-4 times to try on dresses for up to 2 hours at a time… but could never find a dress that actually looked like me. Joanna was so patient and helpful during the entire process, that when I FINALLY found a dress, I didn't price shop because I wanted her to have the commission. I did get it 10% off because it was a "trunk sale," but know I could have found it cheaper online. I was fairly pleased with my experiences, and found that everyone was very friendly.

I just wish it wasn't quite as expensive… other shops seemed to have somewhat lower prices for similar quality dresses. As for the alterations, overall they were good, but I think that either she made a mistake in the bust or I didn't say what I wanted clearly enough. The dress was strapless and gave me the armpit rollover thing that I was desperately trying to avoid and didn't see in the fittings. I was really disappointed by that, but don't know for sure if it was just caused by the way my sister tightened my dress or if it was due to the alterations.

I just read someone else's review about them giving a pink bag instead of an actual garment bag at the outlet next door. I just want to note that I bought my dress from the actual store (not the outlet) but I was given the pink bag too (not a real garment bag).

Alicia's Bridal was great! The staff there was super friendly and would go out of your way to help you find the perfect dress. The best part of Alicia's Bridal was that they would price match your gown from another bridal store. If they didn't have that dress in stock for you, they will order it in for you. They were always available to help with slotting in for dress fitting and made sure you were comfortable with your choices.

I got my wedding gown at the Alicia's Bridal Outlet. I had looked everywhere for the perfect gown with no luck, so I was ecstatic when I found it ready to go and 1/2 off. I got lucky because it fit like a glove, no alterations necessary. It's definitely worth checking out because you can save a lot on really beautiful gowns, but it's hit and miss as they're just selling off the sample gowns from the previous seasons designs.

The woman who helped me was very sweet, and even pulled a veil out of the back when I described what I was looking for.

I was pretty pissed off when they brought out my gown in a pink plastic trash bag instead of a proper garment bag. I had just spent over $1,200 in their store after all. When I asked for a real garment bag I was told that since I was at the outlet they were not included and they charged me $15. It felt really cheap and low to get penny pinched like that.

So, I bought all my bride's maids gowns, shoes, and accessories at Belle Bridal in Bellingham and they were awesome! I wish I had found the right wedding gown there.
