About Us

Our 7,500 square foot location in Bedford has allowed us to become New Hampshire's Premier Bridal salon. Brides travel from all over New England to experience a relaxing, spacious, upscale environment while choosing from the region's largest selection of designer gowns. Since 1955 Modern Bride and Formal Shop has been a full service, family-owned and operated bridal shop offering a range of pricing that meets every bride's budget. Our philosophy is that brides should be able to find designer bridal gowns without designer prices. We believe that a bridal shop should be more than just about the selections. We pride ourselves on attention to detail and personalized service. Our staff is highly trained in product knowledge, fashion and customer service to ensure that you will be part of an extraordinary experience.
