one oak bride is a wedding boutique that offers bridal gowns and bridesmaid dresses, and accessories to finish the look. Northern Michigan has long been a favorite for local and destination weddings. one oak bride is the newest edition to downtown Traverse City's bridal scene. one oak bride exists to serve the unconventional bride. While still classic and romantic, our brides tend to be a little more bad*ss-heroine and a little less damsel-in-distress.
The concept is simple: our gowns (and our atmosphere and our brides) are NOT stuffy, fluffy, poofy, foofy or traditional. They ARE confident, current, refined, eclectic, & romantic. We check the status quo at the door. Enjoy trying on your dress in our intimate space, with your choice of bubbly or a brew, and with only the people you love most (and who's opinion you can stand to entertain). We encourage you to make the experience your own. You'll just as likely walk in on a classic or folksy record playing as you will a new fringe alt rock band. And, you're welcome to chuck both out the window.
Natural beauty, the bohemian spirit and the desire to throw a good party are our guiding principles. The alternative bride is here to stay and we hope they've found their home in us. True to the semi-acronym and simple adage that inspired our name, a one oak bride is truly one of.a.kind.
Appointments are preferred as our intimate space only allows for one bride and her entourage at a time.
