The Dress Bridal Boutique was founded by local bridal expert Sara Recker with one goal in mind, "I wanted to bring something to Northeast Ohio that the bridal scene had not yet experienced." The Dress opened in April 2010, bringing a fresh, vibrant, and contemporary shopping experience to the historic town of Medina, Ohio. We want you to walk in the door, feel welcome, and fall in love with your dress. Our staff will provide you with the highest level of customer care and an extensive knowledge of the latest trends in the bridal industry. We welcome you to bring a few close friends, pop open a bottle of our bubbliest champagne (available as part of our experience packages), and shop for the perfect wedding gown. Our staff members have an extensive knowledge of our full collection and the current trends in bridal fashion.
We are a closed inventory boutique. We do not allow the general public to view the gowns. Please contact us to book an appointment (required).
Sara is the Owner of The Dress Bridal Boutique. She started the shop in the small town of Medina, Ohio almost 11 years ago in a 1100 square foot space. She is the wife to a wonderful man and celebrated their 11 year anniversary this past October and they have four beautiful children together.
Sara can be found running around the shop cleaning, working on the computer and checking in on Bridal appointments. She is a lover of Coffee, Red Wine and a Dirty Martini. Sara is a huge fan of almost all of her bridal designers, but she is a huge fan and lover of Mikaella Bridal.
Sara continues to love and grow her business and make fun and positive changes to the boutique for her clients to enjoy!
