Classic Bride and Formals was a true wedding experience! You get to "flag" the dresses you want to try on. You're the only client in the store during your appointment time. It was a very intimate setting. I worked with Kristy and she was amazing! They carry a lot of designer names, and are a little more on the upscale side. This was the only place I went to try on my dress and fell in love. I highly recommend going just for the experience. :)

Kristy and the rest of the ladies at Classic Bride & Formals have been wonderful at every point so far. They were super helpful and friendly without being intrusive or pushy, and very knowledgeable about their products. The shop has great variety of designers & styles, provides separate rooms for each bride and their friends (so you do not have to worry about your privacy), and overall feels very welcoming. I found the PERFECT dress here and was actually able to afford it! I'll update on the rest when the dress comes in...

Great prices! Different and better choices - which is what I was looking for! This was my 4th shop. I went to Greensboro, Burlington, Raleigh and decided to travel the 2 hours to Cornelius bc of the positive reviews. We were originally planning on starting our day here and then continuing on to Charlotte to visit 2 other shops. I knew immediately as we looked through the gowns that I was definitely getting my dress here and I did! Saved us a trip to Charlotte!

I went to about 10 different bridal shops before stumbling across Classic Bride & Formals. I was looking for a tea length dress. A few other bridal shops turned their noses up at me and said that wasn't in style right now and weren't really willing to work with me. I found a gorgeous Maggie Sottero gown that I loved and I told them what I wanted to do - take it up to tea length. The ladies helped me to pin it up so I could see what it would look like. I finally found my dress. They were also very accommodating since my fiance was paying for the dress and I had to come back with a check.
I was married this last weekend and my husband said the dress was very much me. I thank the ladies at Classic Bride and Formal for helping me see my vision and being so welcoming and kind.

Classic Bride & Formals is truly amazing! I loved the size of their store, as it felt more personal and the process of picking out the dresses myself that I wished to try on was so much less stressful. All the staff that helped were very nice and down to earth. I am in love with my dress and it is so different than anything I saw at other venues. My sister has already said she plans to get her dress there too as well!

Couldn't have been happier with my dress and I received so many complements at the wedding. They even helped me pick out a belt and veil to add to my bridal look!

I could not imagine having gone anywhere else to get my dream dress. With months of endless online shopping, one visit with these ladies and I had to purchase my dress from their beautiful collection. The staff is amazing and made my experience for me, my girls and my family one of the most memorable days in my life. My dress was perfect, as was my service from Classic Bride and Formals. Thank you ladies for starting my wedding adventure with all happiness and fun!!

This bridal shop is every brides DREAM!! They help you obtain YOUR vision for your special day without pushing you into something you weren't looking for like a lot of boutiques do. When you inform them of a price limit they don't push or make you feel bad for budgeting. You get to enjoy the moment of trying on gowns with those you love looking on, not the entire bridal shop. The staff is knowledgeable, professional, and friendly. The moment you find right gown is priceless, for that I am truly grateful for Classic Bride and Formals. I am so glad I purchased my wedding gown through this Bridal boutique.
