Church Street Bridal

Please call  during inclement weather to confirm that we are open during normal business hours. Thank you! 

In 2004, Church Street Bridal opened its doors with the help of dedicated YW staff members, board members and volunteers. 

For a project such as this, it takes many hands to start, cultivate, nurture and go forward creating a legacy. Continuing the work of those who developed and established Church Street Bridal in 2004, the brand has branched from it’s original roots to include:

Church Street Bridal 
(April 2004)-housing bridal gowns and accessories and Church Street Bridal, Too  (August 2007)-housing our ever-growing collection of bridesmaids, formal, Mother-of-the-Bride and prom gowns.

 The YWCA Domestic Violence Prevention Center continues to hold support group meetings on the following evenings:

from 6:30 - 7:30 for women and children in our community

Thursdays from 6:30-7:30 for our in-house residents
