What you need to know...
“ALL the staff at Mara truly care about making the bridal experience top notch and that's exactly what it's been for me, my bridal party, and family. They care more about the bride being happy than any other salon I've been to and always promptly answered my questions via phone or messenger. We even did our grooms appointment virtually with Tiffany and it was perfect. Thank you for the best experience, Mara!"

“Mara helped me customize a gown to create my dream dress. They were patient as we communicated via calls and emails as I lived out of state. The final result was everything I wanted!"

“Mara certainly delivers a personalized, one-of-a-kind experience while shopping for your dream dress! The cute house it's located within provides your group with a private dressing suite to enjoy. The staff is incredibly helpful, from making design/accessory suggestions to helping you in and out of each dress, and very patient when helping you decide between your top 2. Mara was our third bridal shop of the day, and boy, they did not disappoint. My whole experience with Mara soared above the others. I highly recommend checking them out!"
