Wedding Gowns at Bride N' Formal By the Bay

Posted on January 28th, 2015 by omba in Old Monterey

It’s the beginning of the season when couples are making their wedding plans! Brides, if you’re looking for a beautiful wedding gown, we invite you to come to Bride N' Formal By the Bay, which offers you the personal service that only a locally owned and operated small business can provide.

We recommend that brides order their gowns as early as possible. Not all wedding gowns need to be special ordered, but with more time, you will have a greater selection of dress styles and colors to choose from. Once you’ve found your special gown, it will set your theme and make all of your planning come together. Our shop also has a selection of bridesmaids’ dresses, mothers’ dresses, and tuxedos. We look forward to helping you with your wedding planning!

Alvarado Street Brewery and Grill welcomes our new Chef, Robby Valdez! Robby came to Monterey as our Sous Chef last July, and his background leading a few legendary San Diego kitchens (Raglan Public House in Ocean Beach) made him an obvious choice to lead us towards embracing the "gastropub" element of our restaurant, and moving in a direction to where our food better complements our beer. Over the next several months, Chef Robby will be implementing more dynamic menu items that have a degree of comfort-ability, with a level of flair and creativity to make dining at Alvarado Street Brewery a truly fun, memorable experience.
