Chatfields Bridal Boutique
2149 Barrett Station Road
St. Louis, MO 63131
One of the best bridal shops in St. Louis sets itself apart from the rest — by catering to the modest bride. The only bridal store in Missouri that sells all modest bridal gowns, Chatfield prides itself on being different. The staff suggests you shop elsewhere if you’re looking for a popular strapless gown. But if you want something with a bit more coverage, whether it is for religious reasons or personal preference, Chatfield’s offers a wide selection of beautiful dresses to choose from for both the bride and her wedding party. These aren’t stuffy, old-fashioned styles, either, but flattering, feminine gowns with sleeves — from short cap to long — and a modest neckline. Brides-to-be from neighboring states are encouraged to make an appointment so you’ll sure to receive all the attention you need when you arrive.
Hours: Tuesday through Thursday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Friday and Saturday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.; Sunday and Monday, by appointment only. Open evenings until 8 p.m. by appointment only. Hours may change depending on season.
