I was back home in Baltimore recently and discovered that the store where I purchased my wedding dress in May 1971 was purchased by you ! I then had to tell my grandchildren the story of how my mother and the bridal party came into the city to Pacey's ... great memories ! Then when we told them that in John Waters film Hairspray , it was the same place and that my older sister was on the Buddy Dean Committee, the spin off that John based the movie on and that John was a friend of their late grandfather, they loved the history.
Thanks for the memories and yes I still have my wedding dress however no granddaughters to wear it, 4 grandsons only !

When I was looking up wedding stores to buy my dress, I came across a wide variety online. I wanted a store that matched my personality—friendly, personable, fashionable and really understanding staff. Living in downtown DC, I tried local shops, but I didn’t get that family feel. Same with the large name brand wedding stores I visited. At Stella’s Bridal I found a store that just made me feel warm and had dresses that were absolutely stunning. Combined with their staff that truly focused on you during your appointment, I was able to find the dress of my dreams. In fact, they ordered my dress for me so that I could try on this one that wasn’t in the store. It was perfect!! The alterations were expertly done. I cannot thank Doris and her staff enough. Truly a wonderful experience, and I will continue to direct my friends to Stella’s for their dress. A hidden gem coming from D.C.

Many styles to choose from….wonderful staff…great service! I would recommend Stella’s for your bridesmaid dresses!


Last year my daughter and I spent a whole day looking for a prom dress from Eldersburg to Westminster and STELLA's was our last stop and we found the perfect dress!! This year my daughter only wanted to go to STELLA's and thanks to Doris we found the perfect dress again this year! Compared to other shops they had a larger selection and better prices. I would highly recommend STELLA's to anyone looking for a prom dress, bride's maid dress or a wedding gown. Top Notch service!!

I wanted to say how awesome of an experience I had today at Stella’s. I did not have an appointment and they took me. I was a clueless bride, with no vision. Stephanie was fantastic! After 20 some dresses I found the one! Thank you so much for all your patience.


I agree with everyone who wants to give Stella's more than 5 stars! I was a bit anxious for my appointment; I'm not a fan of the limelight. However, Doris made me feel completely comfortable, and I wound up having a truly wonderful experience! I highly recommend coming to them for any formal occasion! I can't wait to go back for my bridesmaids.


I had such a great experience at Love it at Stella's they were so accommodating to me as the bride and my bridemaids needs. They were ready to assist and help us get all of our needs met while we were there. Great staff, a large selection of dresses to choose from, great prices, and deals that help save money. The whole reason of me going there is because of there large selection of dresses and there selection is so vast and abundant.


I stopped in with my maid of honor this past Saturday - without an appointment (please make an appointment! I felt bad we didn't!!) and everyone was so kind and accommodating. It was busy, but no one rushed us. Doris worked with us - she was great! - and we found the perfect dress for my maid of honor! I already had my dress, but wish I had of known about the shop before. They also have tuxes and can order flower girl dresses. I will be back for those, even though I live 45 minutes away, I was so impressed at how we were treated and that is big with me. If you haven't stopped in, do so! Oh - prom dresses - like a girl's dream come true!

The ladies at Stella's are super friendly and knowledgeable. While I didn't end up purchasing my dress from them (I happened to find THE dress at the trunk show of a designer they don't carry), they provided me by far the most exciting and fun dress shopping experience of any place I visited. They have quite an extensive collection and really worked to understand my vision and stay within my budget. I truly had a blast with shopping there and would reccommend this shop to anyone!


Stella’s has been fabulous! Everyone has been so helpful and nice — very important when you’re trying to stay sane during wedding planning! I would definitely send other brides to Stella’s for their dresses and accessories —- amazing!!!

I love the service and the people! I’ve never had this much fun doing something for me and getting what I was looking for. I’d highly recommend Stella’s for any special occasion!

Yesterday my mother and I found Stella's through a google search for mother of the bride dress shops in Westminster. We are in Westminster nearly everyday, but somehow have never seen the store. The moment that I walked into the door, I realized how sad it was that was the case. I already bought my bridesmaids and my wedding gown from another store and I would have LOVED to have searched this store first. From the moment you walk in, the atmosphere is perfect. Great music, huge selection, beautiful store layout, and welcoming/ nice workers. They even had a board on the wall saying welcome with the names of all of the people who made appointments for that day. Though we didn't have an appointment, it wasn't a problem. It was 4pm which wasn't a problem (as they're the only bridal store open in the area until the evening on a Saturday). We had to look at mother of the bride dresses and tuxes, which wasn't a problem (as they have a separate section for everything which was neat that it could be a one stop shop). There were no problems, other than the fact that the men can not actually try on the tuxes, instead, they try on a regular black one for the correct size and then choose which tux they would like from a book. Other than this, I highly recommend this shop being one of your first stops, if not, the ONLY stop, once you begin the wedding planning experience. (Also, they had a rack of discontinued bridesmaids/ homecoming type gowns that were all $25 flat in a variety of sizes. I tried on three just to see if they would work for a future family cruise. For only $25... why not?)


My name is Kesha Carter. My wedding day is August 6,2011. My experience had been wonderful. The staff is very professional and friendly. I am a very nervous bride. The staff made everything easy for me. I will refer all my friends and family.

This Bridal Shop is the most beautiful Bridal shop I have EVER seen. The staff are very professional, helpful and knowledgeable. You will love the atmosphere. It is peaceful and fun and you will love the experience of getting personal care from individuals who honestly want to help make your day the best day of your life.
Not only do they have Bridal Gowns, they have not your typical Mother-of-the-Bride dresses, prom dresses, tuxedos and more. You must check this shop out!!!

Love it! at Stella's was the best place to find all of the dresses for my bridesmaids! Since we chose to do mismatched styles, Stella's had a great variety of dresses in the right colors so my bridesmaids could find the perfect dress that they loved. My husband and all of his groomsmen also got there tuxes there which made it easier! They have great color options for ties as well. The atmosphere is great there and the style of the shop is so fun! I would absolutely shop there again for a future event.


They were such a wonderful help and so attentive! I really loved finding my dress there and the price was right! Im so happy with them and i love there boutique!!


EVERYONE at Love it at Stella's is so professional, knowledgeable, and kind. They really listen to what you want and your budget. They get excited for you and are honest about recommendations. I have referred 5 people and every one of them have found their wedding dresses there! Such an amazing experience and I would recommend anyone and everyone to Love It at Stella's!


OMG!!!! What a FANTASTIC prom shopping experience ! Olivia couldn't have been a more attentive, caring, lovely associate to work with. We have been to ALL the popular places to shop and hands down "LOVE IT AT STELLA'S" has had the best selection of gowns!!!! We will definitely keep you all #1 on our list as THE go to place for formal wear. Thank you for a wonderful, stress-free 4 hr shopping extravaganza

Love it! at Stella's was the first and only bridal salon I went to, and I'm so glad that's where I decided to start! I had no clue what kind of dress I wanted, but the consultant was incredible and put five different dresses on me, all of which I liked! I ended up choosing the second dress she put on me and I couldn't be happier with my choice. I also purchased a stunning veil. The service was great and everything came in very fast. The seamstress was fantastic and worked with me until the dress and bustles were perfect. I highly recommend this bridal shop!


Everyone was lovely and went above and beyond to accommodate my schedule - they came in early and promptly made the alterations my dress needed. I couldn't have asked for a better team!


My relationship with these amazing ladies goes back to 2001 for my senior prom. At the time, they were Stella's Bridal located in the Highlandtown neighborhood in Baltimore City. Then I bought my wedding gown from them in 2011 as I planned to marry the wrong guy. Fast forward to 2016, I've found the right guy and fortunately I already have the right dress. Even though they've long since moved, I had to find these women to do my alterations. I didn't want anyone else. We took the gown to their current location in Westminster and it was like no time had passed. The ladies there were so wonderful to me even though I wasn't shopping, just having my dress taken in and hemmed here and there. I highly recommend them and hope that one day I'll be able to take future daughter there to shop for dresses.

A wonderful place to purchase your wedding dress! The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable and let you pick out some dresses in addition to providing some of their own picks based on the style you described that you liked. They also worked with me for scheduling my fitting because I was coming from far away so they fit me in when technically didn't have fittings at that time. I highly recommend purchasing your dress here. They have a great selection and the entire process was stress-free and enjoyable!

Wedding, 2016
