I believe brides are shopping for more than just a dress; they’re looking for an intimate, individualized experience.

When I took over The Plumed Serpent a decade ago, my vision was to create a couture bridal boutique that catered to the fashionable bride and her individual needs. I wanted to be her tour guide into the world of bridal style.

After all, shopping for a wedding gown is something many women only do once—or maybe twice—in a lifetime. It helps to have the practiced eye of an expert on your side.

Being a Fairfield County native with experience in the New York City fashion world with brands like Nicole Miller and Ralph Lauren, I understand that the New England bride is a bride who often has one foot in the world of couture, and the other in the world of tradition.

With The Plumed Serpent, I have bridged the distance between these two worlds.

By incorporating my professional experience with high-end fashion, and my lifetime experience with tradition, I have created a highly personalized bridal experience with a singular focus: You.

The way I see it, you can find a wedding dress almost anywhere.

But if you’re looking for more than just a dress, if you’re searching for an experience that celebrates you, your day, and your love for elegant, unique, beautifully crafted gowns, then you’re exactly the bride The Plumed Serpent serves.

What we have accomplished at the Plumed Serpent Bridal boutique has exceeded my expectations. Make an appointment with us now, so we can do the same for you.

When you become a Plumed Serpent Bride, you are welcomed with the genuine attention and dedication you deserve. From exclusive designer events to in-house alterations by couture experienced seamstresses, we are dedicated to bringing you a level of service, attention to detail, and atmosphere of distinction you’re not likely to find elsewhere.

It’s not just any wedding day, it’s your wedding day. Making it memorable is as important to us as it is to you. Read less

Oh my goodness - I just loved my experience at the Plumed Serpent! I went in over the weekend after months of research online and found Modern Trousseau, a local designer that I loved. When I saw that the designer was having a trunk show at the Plumed Serpent, I was so thrilled and called for an appointment right away. I was a little nervous walking into the store, but Katie (my consultant) put me right at ease. She is so easy to work with, and listened to everything I was looking for. My appointment was extra special because Callie Tein, the Modern Trousseau designer, was in the store that day for the trunk show so she stayed with us the whole appointment. I only tried on 8 dresses, and Katie was so good at narrowing down what I was looking for. I was so nervous that I was going to be horribly indecisive, but it was such a stress-free and wonderful experience. Katie is absolutely amazing at what she does. There are only two appointments going on at one time, so you get a truly personalized experience. If you are in the area, I highly recommend the Plumed Serpent. You will not be disappointed!

Alison and her staff have that magic touch that makes wedding planning such a joy. I went on a "practice run" with my Mom before shopping in the city, and my dream dress was the fourth I tried on. Alison's clear expertise--and her genuine warmth--immediately put me at ease, and I feel in such good hands as a Plumed Serpent bride.

As a born-and-bred Fairfield County gal who has lived in NYC for 7 years, I can say with confidence this level of sophistication and service can't be matched by an overcrowded Manhattan salon. Save the headache and go straight to Plumed Serpent!

I cannot say enough good things about this bridal shop! I had a good idea of the dress I wanted, but was having a very hard time finding one that matched my vision. This shop was recommended by a friend who had purchased her dress there years ago, and making an appointment with them was one of the best decisions that I could have made. I emailed my thoughts on the style I was looking for, and when I arrived, Julie had pulled about 6 dresses that all matched my description. After trying on a few of them, I asked if it was possible to make a modification to one of the dresses so that it would fit the look that I was searching for. She confirmed that it would be possible, and that completely made my day. I went back to the first dress that I had tried on, and now knowing that we could make this small change, I knew this was the one. I purchased my dream dress that day, and then had to wait, somewhat impatiently, for it to be complete. I had come to the initial appointment by myself, as I was tired of dragging around my family and friends to bridal shops only to be disappointed. It was ironic that I found the dress that day, but I still celebrated with a glass of champagne while we finished the paperwork. When my family came with me for my first fitting, I held my breath, hoping that the dress turned out how I had envisioned it, and was relieved that it was so beautiful. Joy did a phenomenal job with the alterations, and I really found myself looking forward to all the Thursday afternoons I spend at the shop, watching the dress begin to fit. Thank you both for turning the most stressful part of my process into the most effortless. I would recommend you a thousand times over!

Alison and the entire staff at the Plumed Serpent are wonderful. I was very pleased with my dress and the service throughout the process. Every fitting was helpful, and I attended a trunk show here where I got great accessories! The seamstress that we worked with was phenomenal as well- very skilled. She really brought my vision to life.

First-class service, superb tailoring and professional staff define the Plumed Serpent Bridal. Having braved all the traditional manhattan bridal salons, I was relieved to find the Plumed Serpent. You won't be disappointed if you visit this shop and you won't go anywhere else afterward. I found my dream dress here and felt like a princess on my wedding day.

What makes Plumed Serpent stand out is its customer service, not to even mention its exceptionally curated dress selections. I visited the shop 3 times before I committed to my dress. Not one time was I pressured to make a purchase. After some harrowing experiences in manhattan, I welcomed this level of sophistication.

The Plumed Serpent Bridal came recommended by a co-worker. Boy was i so happy she recommended them. The best experience of my life. Granted this happens once and this was the greatest way to spend this experience. I felt like I was the only one shopping at the store. It was like they were opened only for me.
Allison and her staff were like therapist they let me vent and cry with out judgement. They kept me informed about everything that was happening with my dress. They also kept me informed about accessory trunk shows.
This was the best Wedding dress experience from the first time I called.
Great Bridal Salon hands down.
Thank you to the Plumed Serpent for helping me find the perfect dress.

I knew I wanted to get my wedding dress @ the Plumed Serpent because my sister got her wedding dress there and had such an amazing experience. It was so easy to work with Allison and the rest of the team, everything was handled so professionally. There is a great selection of dresses and knew it would be easy to find the perfect one, I found my wedding dress the first time I went there and it was one of the first dresses I tried on. They went above and beyond and helped me with almost every aspect of my wedding - never did they get annoyed with me and my crazy mom. (she asks a lot of questions) I would recommend the Plumed Serpent to everyone I know- I also ordered my bridesmaid dresses from the store and there was not one complaint, everyone looked amazing!

Working with Allison at the Plumed Serpent was a fantastic experience. The store itself is gorgeous and has an amazing selection of dresses. Allison is extremely talented and knowledgeable. I walked into the store thinking I wanted a particular kind of dress, but Allison opened my eyes to the fact that I actually wanted something completely different! She does it in such a subtle way that you think you came up with it on your own! After I found my dress, she picked out the perfect veil and accessories. It was like she was reading my mind. Allison is so personable and fun to be around and she made the entire experience so special for me. I ended up coming back with my bridesmaid to get their dresses there as well. Allison helped me to really feel like a beautiful bride on my wedding day, and what more can you ask for than that! I would recommend the Plumed Serpent to anyone!

I could not have asked for a better dress shopping experience. I planned to get my dress from Kleinfelds, but figured I would go to a few smaller salons just to see what was out there. Plumed Serpent was the first salon I went to and they blew me away. Everything was so civilized and elegent. I was the only bride in the salon and I walked around pointing at every dress that I wanted to try one while my bridal attendant put them in my dressing room. I ended up trying on 12 dresses and picked the first one I tried on. They give you champagne to celebrate and take pictures for you. Additionally, the seamstresses are EXCEPTIONAL. My dress fit like a glove before we even made alterations (due to a lot of experience), but the seamstress turned my dress from beautiful into PERFECTION. I didn't love the sweetheart neckline so they actually changed it for me. I also added a monogram (as my something blue) in the underside of the dress. Overall, amazing experience.
