Lavender Bridal Salon is a full-service bridal boutique, located in Dover, Ohio, providing everything you desire from bridal to prom wear. Owner Karen Stokey had always dreamed of opening a bridal shop and was passionate about bringing more people to the downtown Dover community. A classic, boutique storefront was purchased in downtown Dover and the 8,800 square foot shop was rebuilt and redesigned from the inside out. In August of 2006, Lavender Bridal Salon opened its doors to serve every woman during their special moments in life.

Lavender Bridal Salon carries over 1500 wedding gowns in stock and over 20 designer lines, a few of which are exclusive to this area. Our bridal gown prices range from $800-$1200, in addition to a few of the bridal couture lines. When a bride is ready to select additional wedding attire, we carry 13 designer bridesmaid lines, 8 designer flower girl lines and over 1000 mother’s pieces. For other community formal occasions, we carry over 1000 prom and homecoming dresses of the latest styles and seasons. 

This elegant and fashionable bridal shop offers unforgettable gowns and service for every bride’s style and every bride’s budget. With over 45 combined years in bridal industry experience, the Lavender staff is ready and excited to assist you.  No matter how great our customer service is, LBS associates always live and work under the motto that there is always room for improvement.  With this mind set, our possibilities for growth are endless and we hope that it allows us to grow with and gain an even more loyal following within our small community.  Stop by Lavender Bridal Salon to find the bridal gown of your dreams!
