Charlotte Bushman was a pioneer among women entrepreneurs, and today Charlotte’s Bridal continues her trendsetting tradition. It was 1948 when she began Charlotte’s Hat Shoppe in her home after investing $500 into a supply of Easter hats, just in time for the holiday. Her home business grew to be Charlotte’s Bridal Shoppe in 1953 with a modest selection of six bridesmaids dresses and five wedding gowns. It may not have seemed like much, but it made history. Hers was the first bridal salon ever opened in a woman’s own home, a story told across the country in Women’s Wear Daily.

In 2004 Charlotte’s was sold to Walker’s Formal Wear. At that time revamping took place. New lines were brought into the store and the inventory updated. Charlotte’s relocated to the Copeland Avenue location in July 2007 after spending more than 50 years in the Rose Street location. A bowling alley was in the Copeland Avenue location before Charlotte’s.

In April 2009, a fire broke out. Gail force winds ripped roofing that tangled in a power line and then caught fire. It took firefighters five hours to put out the flames. All of the sold dresses in the back storage area were safe and remained untouched from smoke and fire. More renovations took place at this time to make Charlotte’s what it is today.

Charlotte’s customer base comes from the entire Wisconsin area along with surrounding states! Come to Charlotte’s to see why our store is becoming the fastest growing bridal and formal wear store in the Midwest. Read less

I really enjoyed my experience at Charlotte's! Alicia was very responsive about what I thought I wanted in a dress. She was very upbeat and gave suggestions without being at all pushy! I'm excited to go back with my bridesmaids to find their dressed at Charlotte's!

I recently purchased my wedding dress at Charlotte's and was very pleased with my experience. I worked with Nancy and she was so patient and honest. She knew my style after only a few minutes of working with me. The dress I ended up purchasing for my wedding wasn't even a dress I picked out, I owe that to Nancy! I felt so special during my visit.

Charlotte's Bridal is an amazing place for wedding gown shopping! I went into the store thinking I knew exactly what type of dress I wanted, and ended up with something completely different - in a good way! Jessica (the consultant) was great at guiding me in the right direction and offering honest opinions. I would definitely recommend wedding dress shopping at Charlotte's!

I was very pleased with my visit to Charlotte's. Their Platinum Bride package is by far the best I have found in the area. I was greatly impressed with this. I want the best for my wedding party and I feel they are going to give that. Thank you Charlotte's and Sara!

I was very satisfied with my experience at Charlottes! I was very pleased with the knowledge that the consultant (Jessica) had! She was able to determine my "style" within minutes. She was very friendly and easy to talk to which made the time go by much more quickly. I LOVED how she made sure every dress I tried on was laced up and done as if I were to go get married in it. Even when the dresses were too big, she still laced/zipped them before clipping them so you got the full picture. I would recommend Charlottes to anyone looking for their wedding dress!!!

I recently had a great experience at Charlotte's! My consultant, Sara, was very helpful. Although the selection was not the biggest, the dresses they had were gorgeous. I was able to look through all of them and pull ones that I wanted to try on which was great. A dress that my mom ended up pulling last minute, was the one I chose! Although it is not what I thought I wanted going in, it is gorgeous! Sara was able to pick a sash, veil, and jewelry that I loved. I ended up buying everything I needed at Charlotte's!

Charlottes is where I got my dress and my bridesmaids dresses. My dress and bridesmaids dresses were exactly what I wanted and the women who work there were great help! I even changed my mind about having a flower for my hair instead of the veil I had bought and they let me exchange it no problem. The only thing that frustrated me a little was my lady wanted me to get my dress in ivory, because I'm a little pale. But I was set on white and I'm VERY glad I went with my choice and got white!

My experience at Charlotte's Bridal and Formal Wear was like no other! My consultant really took the time to get to know me, making me feel very comfortable. AND they give brides a free pair of earrings as a gift just for coming in! Best of all, I found my dress on my first visit! They had a great selection of dresses, and were very respectful of my budget. After saying yes to the dress, the staff brought in jewelry and headpieces for me to try on in order to give me the ultimate bridal experience. Charlotte's is truly a great boutique!

I bought my dress, my bridesmaid dresses, flower girl dresses, and the guy's tuxes. I kept going there to get a discount for the others standing up in the wedding. The service was horrible. It seemed the employee's were always making an excuse why they couldn't preform their job. I was not notified when a flower girl dress came in, or when the tux company we ordered a tux from was "dropped" from the store. I paid extra money to have my dress custom measured and they measured it 4 inches too long. I had a horrible experience with Charlottes bridal and would not recommend this place to anyone
