Serving Maryland’s Brides for More Than 40 Years.
When mother and daughter Rita and Mary Gamberdella started their bridal salon in 1978, little did they know they would touch the lives of so many brides and their families for more than four decades. Through the years, the bridal industry has changed and the salon has kept up with the times, expanding its location and offering a wide array of services and bridal attire, including many exclusive lines.
In 2018, Mary reached out to her cousin, Brian Rogers, a local business leader and successful entrepreneur, to help develop and execute a plan to redefine the bridal business for the next 40 years. Brian, whose grandmother Theresa was a Gamberdella, was honored to collaborate with her. Together, they completed the plan and are thrilled to roll it out in 2019.
The newly renovated modern salon offers a customized experience for each bride with four private dressing areas, a state-of-the-art audio system, video and communication technology, digital photography and green-screen capability, as well as separate areas in the salon dedicated to bridesmaids and mothers. “We have everything you need for your entire bridal party,” says Mary Gamberdella. “Coming here isn’t just a shopping trip. It’s an experience!” One thing, though, has remained constant. “Our goal has always been, and will always be, to make people happy,” Mary adds.
