I don’t even know where to begin! My experience with Maggie at Margaret Ellen Bridal was beyond anything I could have asked for. The boutique was so beautiful, and full of the most amazing dresses I’ve ever seen. My family and I were on vacation on 30A for the week, and we made an appointment with MEB. This was the first bridal appointment I had made to try on dresses since being engaged, and I left with my dress! There was no way I could have left with out my dream dress. My mom, aunts, cousins, and my Nan all came to the appointment, and Maggie made everyone feel so at home. I would absolutely recommend any bride-to-be to stop in Margaret Ellen Bridal! It will 100% be a day you will treasure forever. Thank you, Maggie, for being a part of my wedding journey!!!

This was the experience I feel like every bride dreams of! Maggie, the owner, is a doll and definitely the hostess with the mostest! There was a sign out front with my name on it to welcome me, and she had champagne ready for all of us when we arrived. The dresses in her store are absolutely magnificent and there is something for everyone. Saying yes to the dress at Margaret Ellen Bridal was the best day ever!

Maggie went above and beyond to make this day absolutely perfect. When first touching base with Maggie, she asked who was coming to the appointment and what the dream for the wedding was. She then sent more info for her to get a better understanding of my dream dress. Maggie made me feel like a princess when dress shopping. I didn’t feel like dollar signs. Instead, I felt like she was a close friend helping me feel the most beautiful and loved I could ever possibly feel. I would recommend EVERYONE go to Margaret Ellen for their dream dress!

Getting my dress at Margaret Ellen Bridal was truly a once in a lifetime experience! The owner, Maggie was so kind and helpful. You could tell she was so passionate about helping me find the best dress for me. Maggie was also very respectful of my budget, she never pushed me to something I did not want or like. Maggie made me feel like a princess! Thank you Margaret Ellen Bridal for everything!

I had tried on dresses at another store, but the experience didn’t even compare to walking in to Margaret Ellen Bridal. Maggie’s attention to details is just amazing! From the sign outside the door, to the drinks, private appointment in that gorgeous boutique and her full attention on the bride (aka ME!)! She can easily read your reactions and know what dress to show you next! To me “the dress” was the first one I tried on and she knew it! But she still made sure I tried on several others until I was 100% sure and the butterflies and tears showed up!! It was the perfect experience and I feel like I made a new friend!

I don’t know where to begin... Long story short: it was an AMAZING experience & I wish I could do it all over again. Prior to my appointment at MEB, I’d been to at least 4 other boutiques in a big city and tried on numerous dresses (too many to count). Plus, I’m probably the most indecisive person on the planet, so I didn’t have high hopes of finding MY dress that day. Maggie was AMAZING. She made my appointment was personal and made sure to listen and deliver according to MY wants and dreams. She had a GREAT selection of beautiful gowns- not too much, not too little. As I tried on dresses and voiced my opinions, she made sure to inform me of all the ways dresses could be customized (especially the Martina Liana collection). She even communicated with her rep. during my appointment to discuss customization options. My biggest must haves were that I could have two looks (ceremony & reception) and that my dress would be unique. By the end of my appointment I was feeling more sure than ever to say YES to my dress with customization (which says A LOT). Maggie never limited my time, even though I probably took longer than anticipated, and I never felt pressured to buy. I even had my nieces and 2 year old nephew (who was not very entertained while dress shopping with the girls), and she was so patient and understanding. I, honestly, cannot say enough good things about MEB... I could go on forever. I am SO glad that I chose to check it out and that I was able to find my dress!

Magical Experience! The process of finding a dress for my wedding was hard and stressful, until I saw on Facebook a beautiful dress and I found Margaret Ellen Bridal. First, I called to make an appointment, she was nice, professional, and FLEXIBLE! We get along easily and I felt comfortable in our communication. She answered very fast to any changes I had to make in schedules, and best of all, the welcoming and attention in the day of my appointment was warm and unreal to me. I felt so special and I found my dress fast. She helped me with accessories and I felt so free to make my suggestions, until I was completely happy with my pick! Thanks to her and her team! I cannot wait to share my pictures!

We had such a wonderful time! It was such a great experience buying my dress! She made us all feel welcomed, and it was amazing! We started with mimosas, and it was an intimate experience to share with just my family. Anyone who doesn’t buy their dress her is seriously missing out!

The best bridal store in Northwest Florida! Such a personalized experience. Maggie picked the perfect dress based on the questions she asked me before my appointment and it is truly the dress of my dreams! Could not recommend this bridal salon more. 5+ stars!

My experience at Margaret Ellen Bridal was better than I could have imagined. Maggie was amazing! Her shop is intimate and welcoming. She had champagne and Five Daughter’s Donuts waiting for us, which made us feel like we were right back in Nashville! Every aspect of the appointment was unique and tailored to my vision. I walked in anticipating not being able to fit in to any of the samples or walking away feeling discouraged. My experience with Maggie was the opposite! I found several dresses that I loved and ultimately walked away having found the perfect dress. Maggie’s shop is beautiful and her dress selection is something to swoon over. What really made this experience amazing for me though was the connection I had with Maggie. She is personable, attentive, and down right precious! I walked away feeling like she and I could be friends! If you are looking to have an intimate experience in finding your dream dress, I suggest you give Margaret Ellen Bridal a visit if you are on 30A!

Oh my goodness, my experience at Margaret Ellen Bridal has been the best part of wedding planning so far. Maggie is absolutely incredible, and integrates so many different details to create an amazing experience for her brides. She is amazing, the dress selection is awesome, and the shop is beautiful. Margaret Ellen Bridal is definitely the best on the panhandle, and possibly even the world! I would recommend this store to anyone. Thank you again, Maggie!

Maggie was the best host! We were greeted warmly and offered drinks and treats upon arrival. The store was very put together and had very chic décor.

One of the things that I loved most about Margaret Ellen Bridal and which stood out from the other bridal salons I visited was how spacious the store is. The dresses were not crammed together, but rather each one hung comfortably on the rack. This made the dresses easily to shop.

Maggie was most helpful when trying on dresses and picking ones that fit my taste. She was very attentive and listened to everything I had to say about each dress I tried on. This made dress shopping non-stressful and fun for myself and everyone I had with me. Additionally, the one-on-one appointments are invaluable to the shopping experience. This is something you may not consider, but it really makes shopping for your dress that much more personal.

Thank you Maggie and Margaret Ellen Bridal for helping me find my dream dress!

I am beyond grateful for my experience at Margaret Ellen. From the moment we walked in I knew I was in the right place to find my dream dress. The salon is exactly as described classy, intimate and enchanting. She greeted us with a smile and champagne ready to show us the beautiful selection of dresses. Going in not knowing exactly what I wanted, she took the little guidance I gave her and selected the perfect dress as the first one I tried on was THE DRESS! She is attentive and so fun to work with. I am elated she chose to open her shop in our area! Maggie made my dress shopping experience one to remember. I can’t thank you enough for making that day as seamless as possible! Thank you!

I had never imagined wedding dress shopping to be this stress free! By putting in the work upfront knowing what could/could not be done within my time-frame was very appreciated. You also made my “dress team” quite comfortable and they really enjoyed the whole experience.

This was my first time trying on dresses, and the first ever bridal salon I have been to, and I feel as if I was very spoiled! Maggie took time to look at my Pinterest board to draw ideas from what I had pinned, and I ended up saying “yes” to a dress she pulled ahead of time! The experience is one of a kind. Complimentary champagne, completely one on one private appointment, and delicious macaroons all in a beautiful boutique made for a afternoon I’ll never forget. Maggie, thank you for making me feel like a beautiful bride and giving me an experience I’ll cherish forever!

By far the best bridal experience! Maggie made my dress shopping day so special and memorable. She had champagne for myself and my family. She even had alcohol free champagne for my pregnant maid of honor. Maggie took the time to listen to my wedding dress dreams and had a dress shipped in for me to try on! She had great attention to detail and made me feel so comfortable. By the time I left I felt like I had made a new friend! I can’t recommend her enough! Margaret Ellen Bridal is hands down the best of the best!

I cannot say enough great things about Margaret Ellen Bridal. Maggie made our day so special from the moment we arrived! It was so apparent Maggie did all she could ahead of time so Krystan’s vision came to life! Coming from Dallas, I had no idea what to expect, but when we arrived Maggie greeted us with champagne and chocolates and the most beautiful wedding dresses. We also had her entire boutique to ourselves with individualized attention. Maggie thank you so much for making Krystan’s day so special!

“Maggie, I just wanted to thank you personally for making me feel like such a special bride. You gave me such a memorable experience that my mom and I will now cherish. The ambience of your space was beautiful and elegant and your selection of gowns was exquisite. I had such a great time trying them all on. I appreciate your attentiveness and making every important detail to me important to you. Thank you again!”

“Shopping at Margaret Ellen Bridal was a sublime experience. I absolutely loved having Maggie help me select the perfect dress for me. Having her undivided attention made shopping for the dress an exciting occasion, and I loved having the entire shop to myself. I highly recommend Margaret Ellen Bridal!”

“Maggie was so great. She even opened the store for my bridal party and I a little early since we were traveling from out of town. Maggie was so nice and her assistant was great as well. They provided outstanding service and keeps you talking and making sure she’s feeling out what you like and don’t like about certain dresses. She kept me within my price range. I went in for a blush colored from a specific designer and wound up with something completely different. I had already been to 4-5 dress shops and I put the dress on and I just didn’t want to put anymore on. It was the one. I couldn’t be any happier and after putting in my order, everything has started to feel so much more real now. Thanks to Margaret Ellen Bridal, I have my dream dress to go perfectly with my dream guy forever.”
