About Us

Our Story

We started Elegant Forever over 10 years ago based on the belief that there should be something in between fancy, over-priced bridal shops and discount bridal outlets. There should be a place where brides aren’t pressured on time and limited on the number of wedding dresses they can try on.  And being practical about your budget shouldn’t mean you can’t find a wedding dress that makes you look beautiful.  Most importantly, a bridal boutique where personalized service takes a front seat to the rushed and snooty service found at many wedding dress shops.  We believe shopping for your wedding dress is the most important purchase of your life. And we feel fortunate to be part of your journey. We are a small, personalized bridal shop and we’re confident we can help you find the perfect dress!

Our History

We have been helping brides in the Maryland, Virginia and Washington, DC area for over 10 years.  We recently expanded our business by opening up a  location in Historic Downtown Frederick, Maryland. Our new location provides an expanded inventory of wedding dresses and accessories, as well as offer brides a wonderful shopping experience in Downtown Frederick.

Our Dresses

We carry a complete line of beautiful and affordable wedding dresses.  We maintain an in-stock inventory of over 100 dresses with multiple styles and sizes.  We can help find a style that fits your figure and your budget. We provide alterations so that your dress is a perfect fit! In addition to your dress, we offer veils, tiaras, and other hair accessories.

Schedule Now

To ensure we set aside the proper amount of time, we see brides by appointment.  You will find our service to be professional, attentive and courteous.  We schedule appointments in the evenings and on weekends at our location at 31 W Patrick Street, Frederick, Maryland.  We accept all major credit cards and we speak Spanish!

Happy New Year 2018

2017 was a wonderful year and we are so very grateful to all our brides over the last year. 2017 was our first full year in the new location at 31 W Patrick Street in Historic Downtown Frederick. We feel blessed to have had such a successful year. We continue to expand and focus our selection of wedding dresses and other other offerings. As some may have noticed, throughout 2017, we moved more of our communication to our Facebook site – https://www.facebook.com/elegantforever/. We hope brides wanting to learn more about our shop will visit our Facebook site to learn what past customers have said about their experience. We wish everyone a prosperous 2018!
