Unveiling The Steel Magnolia Bridal Experience

Because Every Love Story Deserves a Fabulous Gown

The Steel Magnolia. Located in historic downtown Somerset, our boutique, housed in an 1886 gem, offers private appointments for an intimate bridal experience. Choose from our curated selection, including a dedicated space for plus-size brides. Let us be part of your unique journey to ‘I do’.

Attention to Detail in every Gown in our Collection

The passion to offer The Best

“We handle our brides one at a time here. Each woman is given her time, with her family, in a private and comfortable setting. This makes the experience more memorable for the bride. There is no awkward sitting with strangers, just you and your loved ones. Each customer gets undivided attention and we can listen to her and her concerns. This is why we do private appointments. We do take walk-ins if we have an open slot, of course. But with the growing popularity of our shopping experience, availability is sometimes limited”

Real Brides, Real Testimonials: Discover the Unfiltered Elegance of The Steel Magnolia Experience

Warrenwood Manor


This year three of our brides at Warrenwood wore dresses from The Steel Magnolia. They were gorgeous! As just their venue, we can't speak to the customer experience at The Steel Magnolia or the dress pricing, but all three of our brides looked stunning in dresses that were flattering and fit them and their event well.



Overall my experience was absolutely wonderful and the owner made sure of that. I found the wedding dress that I love and I HIGHLY recommend TSM to every bride to be!!



My experience at TSM was everything I wanted and more! After going to a couple bridal shops in Lexington and finding dresses I liked I went to the steel magnolia and found my dream dress. All appointments are private and that gives the absolute best experience. Both consultants were extremely helpful. Two of my friends also had great experiences and ordered their dresses from there. 10/10 recommend.
