Mary Jo’s Cloth Store has a huge bridal department. We can’t even imagine the thousands of brides that have worn dresses made with fabrics from our store.
Shopping for wedding fabrics can be fun, and a special part of the process of designing and creating the perfect dress, but it can be overwhelming with such a wide selection to choose from.
After you say “yes”, plan to visit the store for an overview of what is available and to become acquainted with all the different materials used for bridal dresses. At Mary Jo’s you will see brocade, crepe, embroidered net, lace and lace trim, organza, satin, shantung, sheer, silk chiffon and charmeuse, silk dupioni, taffeta, tulle, velvet and more. Fabric styles vary from modern and trendy to traditional, timeless and elegant.
You might fall in love with a fabric at first sight - it happens! Or you might only buy a few sample pieces on your initial visit to Mary Jo’s, but this will make the ultimate fabric purchase much easier.

In addition to fabrics you will find wedding dress patterns and all the notions you will need to complete your dress like pearls and sequins, buttons, zippers, seam binding and hook-and-eye closures. Plus you can find fabrics and ribbon to use as decorations, table linens and favors. We haven't even mentioned dresses for brides-maids, mothers and grandmothers, flower girls… Yes, of course we have fabric for them too.
We are thrilled when brides share wedding pictures with us. It is exciting to see fabrics that once lived on bolts in our store transformed into the most exquisite dresses. Thank you to Deanna and Zoltan for sharing photos of their special day with us. The dress, and the bride are beautiful!
