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 had a wonderful experience at Charlotte's Bridal! I was greeted by friendly staff and the girl I worked with was super friendly and knowledgable! She took the time to discuss my vision and what I wanted before any dresses were pulled. She explained how the dresses were organized and then help my group and I pick dresses for me to try. She was very supportive and informative as I walked in wanting one style of gown and ended up purchasing something completely different. I never once felt pressured to make a decision and she did not push me into any of the gowns. All of the staff were wonderful to work with but I cannot say enough good things about my consultant! I had a great experience and would recommend anyone to go to Charolette's Bridal!

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!

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!

The staff at Charlotte's Bridal was very helpful! I had a short engagement, so I had to buy my dress off the rack. I went to another bridal store, and they were not responsive to my budget or my needs. At Charlotte's, they were happy to assist me, and did not make me feel "guilty" for having a small budget or a short engagement.

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.

The consultant was very helpful and nice. She made my first experience a very god one. The dress selection and price range was not very good though. The styles were limited, but I was able to try a few dresses and see some things that I liked.
