Eva’s Bridal Center has been trusted by more than three generations of brides for 65 years! We are an independently owned and operated family business. Eva’s original location was on Historic Mitchell Street in Milwaukee. The store opened its doors in January 1946 as a small custom-made dress shop. For more than four decades it was the largest bridal salon on the then called “Bridal Alley” strip of more than nine bridal shops located on Historic Mitchell Street.
Current owner, Beth Stone started working at Eva’s Bridal Center in 1989 and purchased the store in 2000. From just a young high school girl when she started, her passion and genuine love for the business grew and so did the success of the business.
In February 2005, Eva’s Bridal Center moved to its new home near Mitchell International Airport in Oak Creek where it more than doubled in size. The move has been a wonderful blessing to the business and its loyal clients. More than 75% of Eva’s Brides are referrals of friends and families of former Eva’s Brides.

This past December, Eva's collected items to be donated to the Wisconsin Rescue Mission for needy families in our area. Over 130 items including hats, coats, gloves, and scarves were collected along with $1,000 to be donated. We are so grateful for the generosity of all who donated and look forward to participating in this drive again next year.
Eva's Bridal Center is a proud sponsor of Milwaukee's Kingdom Princess Society. This group guides young girls by learning, encouraging, growing, and socializing together. The princesses run fundraisers, enjoy social gatherings, and work within the community together. Each year, Eva's donates bridal, bridesmaids, and prom gowns for the girls to wear to their royal ball.
Each year, Eva's Bridal Center hosts a food drive to be donated to the Hunger Task Force. Our brides love the great deals they receive on their gowns on top of being able to help out a good cause. Every year the donations become more and more generous helping us to increase our monetary and food donations every year. This past year Eva's raised $1,730 and 600 pounds of food for the Hunger Task Force.
Eva's Bridal Center along with Easter Seals and the Wisco Hotel Group were proud to present The 2011 Pumpkin Express Benefiting Children with Special Needs. The Eva's girls had a great time at the event passing out candy and seeing the children have fun in their costumes.
In 2011, Eva's Bridal Center teamed up with the Milwaukee Humane Society to raise money for local pets in need. Through-out the month of October, brides received discounts on their bridesmaids and bridal gowns with a donation to this good cause. This promotion helped Eva's raise $730 to donate to the Humane Society.
