Don't judge this store by its exterior. A Formal Occasion had absolutely beautiful and reasonably priced gowns for Prom. The lady, who helped me in and out of dresses, was a just a pleasure to be around and was not pushy nor did she seem

Wonderful Experience!! I went in not knowing what to expect but i got full service attention. The gown selections were wonderful!! They have tons in stock for such a small place.

I knew i wanted a glam, mermaid gown but was not sure if i could find it. I had to narrow it down to 3!!!~i finally made the selection to my dream gown.

The best part is the price are fantastic!! Designer gowns for great prices, cant beat that.

I left the store with a rose thanking me for sharing my bridal experience. Very sweet gesture.

I would highly recommend brides to skip past the fancy stores and the bad service of Davids Bridal and check out this wonderful place.

I'm not the type of girl that wants to spend $1,000 on a wedding gown; especially since my fiance and I are planning a beach wedding in the Caribbean. So, I scheduled my first bridal consultation at David's Bridal in Kennesaw and was not impressed. The experience left me feeling rather disappointed - I felt rushed, and the staff didn't appear to be honest or genuine with their opinions about any of the dresses. They proceeded to tell me how beautiful each dress was on me, but I knew better. I looked like crap! lol In the end, however, I managed to settle for a dress that seemed to have potential and I placed it on layaway (& thank God I did because all sales are final and I would not have been able to return the dress). A few days passed and I couldn??t help but to think that there must be someplace else that I can go to find THE PERFECT DRESS - isn't that what a bridal gown is all about?
Then Google saved my life, through which I discovered A Formal Occasion!!! All of the reviews were great and there was so much positive feedback that I had to go check it out for myself! I am very pleased to say that all of these reviews speak the truth! I was greeted immediately and was amazed at the selection they offered as soon as I stepped through the door. They have gowns that are superb in quality and literally GLAMOROUS! I'm talking about gowns that cannot be compared to those at David's Bridal! Everything played out like a dream for me! The very first dress that I decided to try on was THE PERFECT DRESS! I bought it that very same day and have NO REGRETS! The staff at A Formal Occasion respected my style preference and did not pressure me into anything else. They even gave me a charming little red rose as a token of their appreciation :o) It was a very comforting experience for me and I would HIGHLY recommend A Formal Occasion to any other ladies seeking the perfect bridal gown.

I found A Formal Occasion through the Casablanca Bridal website. I went in there looking for a specific Casablanca gown, which they had, but was amazed by their selection! I had been all over Atlanta looking for gowns, and this one small store had more dresses that I loved than some of the bigger stores I had been to!

Another great thing about A Formal Occasion is that they have their dresses in small and large sample sizes! 6s and 16s! I was able to try on all of my choices and found the perfect dress! I couldn't be happier with my purchase! I can't wait until the dress comes in January!

A formal occasion was a WONDERFUL experience. I went in because of a wedding dress I saw in the window and made an appointment. When I got to the appointment after pulling SEVERAL beautiful dress the owner pulled one she thought i would like . I tried it on and LOVED it ...I always thought it was supposed to be stressful finding a dress but it was a WONDERFUL experience!

A Formal Occasion was the first store that I visited to search for my wedding dress. I was amazed and very pleased with the 'A' class service that my sisters and I experienced the moment we walked through the doors. The owner, Lucinda, was so kind, energetic, and helpful. She took her time to understand the kind of dress that I like and she was very attentive to my style. I felt no pressure to commit to a dress; it was a very relaxing environment. I always thought that my "wedding dress shopping" experience would be very stressful and chaotic, but at A Formal Occasion I felt relaxed and I was able to take my time. The dress selection was also very nice. I believe I've found my dress at A Formal Occasion and I'm really excited!!!

I stopped in to do a quick look through for a veil and hair comb, expecting not to have luck after looking at lots of other places. I was pleasantly surprised that I walked out with both within 30 minutes of getting there. They have lots of wedding accessories, garters, guest books, and of course dresses, veils, tiaras, hair combs and more. The customer service was great. The girl helped me with veil ideas and showed me how to make the veil and comb work whether I wore my hair up or down. Great store, great selection, and great prices too. I highly recommend them!

When I got engaged, I was very excited about going to get my dress. I had no idea about what dress shopping would be like, or how complicated it was to get a dress, alterations, etc. for a reasonable price. The first shop I went to was Bridal by Lori--essentially the Rodeo Drive of wedding boutiques--where I came out discouraged and, frankly, insulted by their sales staff. I then went to David's Bridal where I was equally discouraged because all the dresses looked the same and none of them were anything like what I wanted. Needless to say, I saw both extremes of wedding boutiques and while it helped me get some perspective, I was totally disillusioned and discouraged...until I walked into A Formal Occasion. It isn't as glamorous as Bridal by Lori, and isn't as overwhelming as David's Bridal. It is a charming and tasteful little shop with a surprisingly large selection of dresses. The sales clerk was very attentive, enthusiastic and really helped me find the perfect dress. She encouraged me to try on different styles (even some I was convinced I wouldn't like). Sure enough I found the perfect dress, and it was one of the styles I didn't think I would like. Long story short, AFO has a great selection, reasonable prices, amazing service and made dress shopping a fun experience (like it should be).

This place is absolutely amazing. So many bridal shops rush you in and out and don't let you take the time to make such an important decision. The owner is so caring and will discuss with you anything and everything you need or want in a dress and never pressures you to buy anything you don't like. I haven't bought my dress yet, but after going to several different stores just to shop around, I am determined to get my dress at a Formal Occasion. I have found "the one", but I'm an eternal skeptic, so I continue to look, but I'm yet to find another place that beats the variety and price at a formal occasion.

This place is marvelous! I've never walked into a place of so many types of dress styles and colors. They range from prom dresses to formal dresses to wedding dresses. They are all hand sewn with care. Every dress is unique and they are all fun! If you may have a special occasion to go to, then i would give this place all five stars!

A formal ocassion is the best place to go for a prom, home coming and even a wedding. At formal occassion the employees are there to help you with your tux or dress fitting. If they dont have the right shoes that you want they have a catolog there that you can order your shoes out of. They will work with you to help you find the best formal wear that you have ever found

I found this place after I purchased my dress elsewhere and was having my alterations done by an adjecent business (Sew Elegant). I was looking for a veil and accessories. They let me bring my dress in and try it on and try on veils - other place will NOT let you do this. I found just the right veil and a lot less than other places. I also took a look at their wedding gowns and was sad I had made my decision so quickly at another place (david's-yuk!) I was only looking for a veil but the customer service I received was amazing. The owner spent time with me even while she helped others. I was very impressed. You need to go here first if you are looking for a wedding dress and accessories!

Message from A Formal Occasion Bridal Shop

When finding the perfect dress is also about enjoying the experience, we look forward to fulfilling that dream.



We have a more personal approach and believe there is more to making a bride happy than just selling her a dress.



We understand that each bride is different and has her own special needs. For this reason, we stock gowns in size 2-24 that are available for try-on and immediate purchase or by special order if a different size or color is needed.



We also showcase many styles that are exclusive to our shop, thereby not seen elsewhere. In addition, we have the largest selection of informal dresses around.



If your desire is to have a unique and pleasant experience that won't be found at a large chain store, we invite you to come in and experience the difference!
