North Fork Bridal is a bridal boutique on the east end of Long Island. We carry bridal gowns in a range of sizes and silhouettes, as well as veils and hair accessories. All of our suites are private so that a bride and their guests can relax and enjoy the shopping process while being assisted by one of our amazing stylists. Our shoppe is cheerful and fun, designed to help brides have a unique shopping experience while finding their dream dress.

We wanted a shopping experience that was both relaxed and also fun! Shopping for a dress shouldn't be stressful, and it should be a time to make memories with loved ones. Our boutique is decorated with lots of flowers, which we love because flowers are like brides- they come in all shapes, sizes and colors, and they are all beautiful! We love meeting new brides every day and getting to know their individual style, helping them find the dress that fits their vision for their dream day! We have tons of great photo ops and signs throughout the store to make the day a bride finds her dress a day to remember!
We started out as a 1 room shoppe with 2 stylists, and as the years have passed we have expanded our team adding more talented stylists and moved to a space we genuinely love. Just like our brides, our stylists all have different individual styles and personalities, but most importantly we all truly love what we do!
“Do I need to make an appointment?”
Yes, we have four private dressing rooms with comfortable guest seating areas to make your experience personalized with a Bridal Specialist to guide you along the way. Weekends are our busiest time so we ask you schedule your appointment at least two to three weeks in advance. You can request an appointment here or give us a call to set one up!
“How many guests can I bring to my appointment?”
Each bride gets their own personal suite and stylist. Due to space and current CDC guidelines we can allow each bride to bring a maximum of three adult guests with them to their appointment but you are more than welcome to facetime anyone who can’t make it!
“What is your payment policy?”
Payment is due in full at time of purchase. All of our gowns are made to order and can not be cancelled. We accept cash, check or credit card.
“How much do your dresses cost?”
Our dresses range from $1500 -$6000, but the average is $1750-$3500.
“Do your stylists work on commission?”
No, our goal is to help every bride find their dress in a stress free environment! If you loved your stylists service gratuities are never expected but always appreciated.
“Where are you located?”
We are located at 5720 Route 25A in Wading River, New York! We are inside The East Wind Hotel itself on the west facing side of the building, not in the Shoppes at East Wind.
“When should I start to shop for my wedding dress?”
We recommend a bride orders her dress between 9-12 months before the wedding to feel comfortable. Some dresses can take up to 7 months to come in depending on how much handwork goes into making it since everything is made to order. Many brides purchase their dress even further in advance, just to make wedding planning easier, since the focus and theme is around YOU! We also want to make sure there is enough time for alterations once the dress arrives, which we recommend starting 2 months before the wedding to cover at least a few fittings with your bridal seamstress.
“What size dresses do you carry?”
We carry sizes 8-32, brides come in every size, so do our gowns! How a dress fits depends on the manufacturer and their size chart, bridal gowns tend to run 2-3 sizes smaller than standard street clothes.
“Do you allow pictures?”
Yes we do, as long as it allows a Bridal Specialist to stay on track with the appointment so the bride receives full attention for any questions and options. We are also happy to take a group picture once the bride finds her dream dress!
“What else do you carry?”
We carry veils, hairpieces, and jewelry as well. If you are interested in any accessories, we are happy to setup an accessories styling appointment. Please call us to schedule.
“Will I need alterations?”
North Fork Bridal orders your gown as close to your size as possible, according to the dress manufacturer’s size chart. Almost always a bride will need some alterations to make the dress fit as best as possible.
I visited North Fork Bridal two times! The first time was to really figure out what I was looking for and the second is when I said yes to my dress. I went to a few different shops before going back again. Chrissy was incredible to work with. She understood my vision, listened to what I was looking for in my wedding dress, and truly made me feel like I was the most important bride. I felt so confident in my dress and it was all thanks to North Fork Bridal!
I did the VIP bride and had the place to myself and my guests and it was awesome, all of the attendants were so sweet and made it such a fun experience. They really listened to what I was looking for & it was overall just a really nice experience! My dress was an Essence of Australia and I was in love!
very sweet and patient. they asked for feedback on each dress i tried and helped me narrow down to the ONE. I absolutely loved my dress.
My experience at NFBS was amazing. Their space is so gorgeous and they made it so fun! I also could not believe how large their selection was for plus size brides. I can’t recommend them enough!
Found the most amazing dress here after trying only 6 others. They were really great at understanding my style once I showed Inspo pics, but also helpful at letting you know which are more flattering for YOU!
I had such a wonderful experience. I went in with no expectations and Scott delivered with a perfect gown. Since it was my first experience dress shopping, I wanted to check out a few other spots before committing. No other dress or shop compared and I found myself looking back at the pictures of the dress I fell in love with. I made another appointment and said yes to the perfect dress! From start to finish I had a wonderful experience.
I found my dress at North Fork Bridal almost instantly. Everyone who works there is extremely professional, very helpful and SO nice! My dress was perfect! The alterations were also perfect and I fell in love with my dress even more! Strongly recommend going here to look for a wedding dress!
I couldn't be happier with NFBS — not only did they help me find my perfect wedding dress, they went above and beyond in terms of their customer service. I worked with Ali, who was fun, personable, and knowledgeable and who communicated with me every step of the process. 10/10 recommend this business!
The most amazing day and shop.
Ali made the process so simple and stress free! She listened to everything I was looking for and even used her own expertise to suggest dresses I wouldn’t have picked for myself and I found my dress based on her recommendation! It was my first time going dress shopping and I had no idea what to expect but I couldn’t have asked for a better experience!
