Hi All! 

I’m Katie, the owner of Gowns Bridal & Formal Wear. I want to welcome you to our store and hope you find our vibe to be what you are looking for in your bridal gown search. 

Owning a bridal store was never something I saw myself doing but after years of being in events, I realized that there was a need for more in Springfield, IL. More bridal stores, more plus-size options, more locally owned places for girls to explore. I can honestly say I have found exactly what I should be doing with my life. I LOVE my job, I love seeing engaged girls turn into brides when they find the dress, I love when a high schooler finds an amazing gown and her mom is happy with the price, I love the experience that we get to provide you when you come through our doors.

When I’m not doing my bridal store thing, you can find me hanging with my family. I’ve been married to my husband, Andonie, since 2012. We met while we were working on cruise ships (I know, pretty cool). We have 3 beautiful girls, Kentley, Emery, and Taylor and we love traveling and creating memories with them. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me with any questions about bridal gown shopping. AND our goal is not to sell you a dress but to help find the right dress for you – we just hope we have it at Gowns Bridal & Formal Wear!
