"Our success is based on one thing, finding you the wedding gown of your dreams and giving you the best experience in outfitting your entire wedding party." - Barbara Antonacci, President Marry & Tux Bridal
Marlene's Bridal, Haverhill MA
The story of Marry & Tux Bridal began in Haverhill, MA where the store was a one room bridal shop, and less than 700 sq.feet. In 1976 the opportunity to purchase "The Marry Shoppe" in downtown Nashua presented itself. The Marry Shoppe was a small storefront that was located in the Odd Fellow's building and was purchased in 1976 by our founders, John and Marlene. Once new management took over, the store flourished and it was time to expand to a larger location. The store was soon relocated to 100 Daniel Webster Hwy; which has been our home ever since.
John & Marlene
Moving the Marry & Tux Shoppe to Daniel Webster Hwy in Nashua was the first in a series of expansions to our bridal shop. Within just three years, John & Marlene felt the pinch to expand the bridal shop again and drew up plans to create a second lower level, adding 5,000 sq.feet to the store in 1985. Now retired and living in Florida, both are still active in the business. The company is now run by their daughter Barbara, who is the current president.

Barbara & celebrity designer, David Tutera at Chicago Bridal Market
Having been in the business since she was a little girl, helping her mother at the bridal shop are some of her fondest memories. By 16 Barbara was selling wedding dresses and altering her friends prom dresses. Barbara took over the business in 1995 and expanded again in 2012 to add 2,000 sq.feet to create New England's only plus size wedding dress boutique within our store. In 2014 it was time to change with the times and re-invent our store logo and branding, and we re-introduced ourselves as Marry & Tux Bridal in November of 2014. Renovations began on our store in December of 2014 to completely overhaul the entire interior; and were completed in March of 2016. ... We can't wait to meet you and help you find the perfect dress!
