The Barefoot Bride
The Barefoot Bride was founded in 1966 in Fair Haven, NJ by a special woman named Bette Blanc. Originally, the store was not always just bridal, but also included “off the rack” formal women’s and children’s wear. In the early 1990’s, Betty sold the store to a new owner who offered a very extensive selection of women’s vintage consignment clothing and bridal, including bridesmaid dresses, accessories, shoes and even sometimes tuxedos.
Mayra Perez-Lowey, the current owner, purchased The Barefoot Bride in 2006 and turned it into the intimate and friendly bridal salon it is today. After five years of business in Fair Haven, she moved the store to her dream location at 65 Monmouth Street in Red Bank. She wanted to revamp the store and give it a more boutique selection with a warm family-like feel. Additionally, The Barefoot Bride now offers custom wedding planning services! Brides can choose from full wedding coordination packages or simply “day of” services and anything in between.
We pride ourselves on treating each bride and all customers like friends in our own home. If a guest doesn’t find exactly what they’re looking for, we’ll work to provide more options for the bride and her bridal party. Brides are invited to make an appointment to shop and try on our bridal gowns.
Bridesmaid parties are welcome to visit and browse with or without an appointment, but to reserve fitting rooms, please call ahead. The Barefoot Bride looks forward to making your bridal dreams a reality!
