Moms, Maids, and More is a new retail boutique that will be a unique supplement to the existing bridal shops in the greater Seattle area. While most bridal shops focus on providing the bride with her wedding gown, the focus of Moms, Maids, and More is everything besides the wedding gown. Our core products include mother-of-the-bride and mother-of-the-groom attire, bridesmaids' attire, flower girl attire, bridal footwear, and bridal accessories, such as veils, headpieces, and jewelry. Our goal is to be the one-stop-shop for items beyond the wedding gown, and to provide a fulfilling shopping experience for our customers.
