Finding the right wedding gown can be stressful so brides-to-be need a staff that is attentive to their needs.

With nearly three decades of working in clothing and fashion design, ICON Bridal and Formal founder Connie Thompson is just that person. Perhaps, one reviewer on said it best: “I definitely felt like she wanted to see me happy as a bride - even if I didn’t purchase the dress from her shop.”

A full-service bridal salon featuring an exclusive collection of designers, ICON is committed to quality, service, reliability and flexibility, a key ingredient as the big day approaches and last-minute alterations and tailoring are required.
ICON handles all aspects and services for the wedding party, including bridesmaids, flower girls,

groomsmen and mothers and the salon has a strong belief that every customer deserves to feel individually special when choosing the right look for the special day. It also has a unique feature – a sampling program where clients can order a gown without obligation.

ICON Bridal recently won the WeddingWire Couples’ Choice Award for 2015, recognizing the Darnestown shop as being among the top 5% of wedding professionals nationwide.
