Charlotte’s has been helping brides Say Yes to the Dress for over 30 years in Portland, OR. The original owner named Charlotte, started the business out of her home with only one designer and soon after moved into our current location and opened a full service bridal boutique.

In June of 2007, Charlotte decided to retire and sell the store to one of her employees, Krysta York and her parents Robyn & Dan McLaughlin. Over the years the store has changed and currently has 8 newly renovated bridal suites and 8 smaller changing rooms. It has exclusive designers found nowhere else in Portland and the surrounding areas. It remains a full service boutique known for its great customer service, knowledgeable staff and the bridal shop to go to when wanting the ultimate gown shopping experience. It is also a proud partner and supporter of VOW for Girls. Charlotte’s is one of the top destinations to find your wedding gown in the Pacific Northwest.


We are so excited to be offering the Charlotte’s Experience to Southern Oregon Brides!  With our 2nd location opening in Ashland, June 9th we can’t wait to show Southern Oregon brides the ultimate in wedding gown shopping.
