Go Custom!

We recently had a bride that loved the top of one dress but the bottom of another. Because the gown was from the same designer we created the bride a custom gown. Her gown is truly one of a kind! At Bellissima we work with the best designers and together we can do about anything! Love the lace on one gown but the shape of another, no problem! Do you want a cathedral train or no train at all? The customizations are limitless. So if you just can’t find “the one”, give us a call and let’s go custom!

Gorgeous Shop in Salisbury

If you are looking for someone that gives you that “one and one” time, has all different shapes and sizes and the determination to really help you find your “it” dress (even when you don’t know what “it” is yet) …then look no further! Monica, at Bellissima, has created this gorgeous shop in Salisbury that just makes you feel like you never want to leave. It’s swanky, crisp and such a beautiful space that makes so pleasant to be in! Not to mention Monica, is one of the most genuine, caring and thoughtful women I have ever met! You can really tell she cares about her brides and her passion for her store shines bright!
My first appointment, I brought my mother along, while I started to get a better feel of what I wanted. Monica hand selected gowns to help me get a better understand of the different shapes! I would recommend EVERY bride doing this! Let her pull these for you!! This helped me tremendously, but confused me (in a good way) because every gown was so beautiful!
Her selections of gowns might not seem large to the eye but I know from experience Bellissima, will deliver! The way she has her store set up is so neat because you can actually see the gowns! This is very pleasant! When comparing pricing I felt like Bellissima was very reasonable considering the quality of her selections.
Another thing that I loved about my first appointment was Monica’s assistance in the dressing room It really helps when the professional is there even before you can look in the mirror to adjust and place things where they need to be! She did a wonderful job at clipping the dress so I could get a better feel of how it would look when it would be when the proper size and tailoring. If I had been thrown into a room by myself I would have probably skipped so many gorgeous gowns!
Monica, carries a great selection of sashes, broaches, overlays and so many different accessories that your options are endless! No need to drive look in big city for beautiful designer gowns!!


Belissima is the Belle of the Ball of Bridal Salons

Perfectly Amazing!

Belissima is the Belle of the Ball of Bridal Salons. The dresses are breathtaking, the fabrics are stunning, the designs are glamorous, the space is inspiring, and the service is perfection. My private consultation with Monica, the owner of Belissima, was the best time! I felt like a bride every second I was in her shop. Monica welcomed my family and friends with open arms and immediately got a taste of my dream dress. She found the most amazing gowns for me to try on and I loved every single one of them. Of course, I loved one more than the rest! My time with Monica at Belissima was the best part of my  wedding planning process but, it was also one of my favorite days of my life! I will always remember the time I spent there with my loved ones as days filled laughter, happy tears, hugs, excitement, and pure joy. Monica is a perfect professional on every level, but she is also an immediate friend. She creates an atmosphere that very few people are capable of creating and she does this within moments of stepping through her door. My experience at Bellissima is one I will always cherish and I cannot wait to go back there with my sister and my friends and see them share those same moments with their loved ones! Thank you Monica!!!

Mother of the Bride

Bellissima is a fabulous boutique that offers top notch service and a wonderful selection of beautiful wedding dresses! My daughter and I were so impressed with the level of service and dedicated attention we received at Bellissima. We visited a number of shops and Bellissima is by far the best on so many levels. If you are looking for a unique experience where personal attention and expert advice is top priority, Bellissima should be your choice. Monica will help you ensure your wedding day is very special!
