"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
We started off as a one room store in 1970.
Marlene's Bridal, Haverhill MA
Our story began in Haverhill, MA where the store was a one room bridal shop, and less than 700 sq.feet. In 1976 the Marry Shoppe went up for sale in downtown Nashua, a small storefront that was located in the Odd Fellow's building. With John & Marlene at the helm the store flourished and it was time to expand to a larger location, 100 Daniel Webster Hwy; which has been our home ever since.
John & Marlene
Moving the Marry & Tux Shoppe to Daniel Webster Hwy was the first in a series of expansions. Within just three years, John & Marlene felt the pinch to expand 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 she 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 a plus size wedding dress boutique within our store. We changed with the times & re-branded 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!
