2. Dressed in Time
Dressed in Time is a favorite of locals in Milwaukee, and for quite a good reason.

Dressed in Time is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday-Tuesday and Thursday and closed on Wednesday and Friday. They are open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturdays and from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sundays.

Madison’s Windsor is one of several chain retail shops which offer a broad and quite well-curated selection of dresses for all occasions.

Good Style Shop carries three categories of clothing: dresses, blouses & tops, and denim.

FCD is open from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Saturday, closing an hour later on Thursday-Friday, and is closed on Sunday.

To reach out, message Furs & Clothing of Distinction on Facebook.
6. J.P. Togs Prom & Formal
Those in Abbotsford likely already know this name, but J.P. Togs Prom & Formal is one of the best spots in the area for formalwear. They’re incredibly friendly, offer a massive selection of dresses and tuxedos alike, and are always happy to lend a helping hand when the need arises. J.P. Togs is open from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday-Wednesday, from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday-Friday, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturdays, and from 12-3 p.m. on Sundays.

7. Sandra D’s Bridal Boutique

8. Lund & Taylor Bridal Gallerie
Right in smalltown Rhinelander, Lund & Taylor Bridal Gallerie is primarily focused on bridal dresses and the needed accouterments. However, when prom season rolls around, they’re one of the top spots in Wisconsin to find a prom or homecoming dress. Lund & Taylor is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Wednesday and Fridays, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Thursdays, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturdays, and closed on Sundays.
Lund & Taylor is a unique shop on this list, as they stock up on prom dresses for the season and then offload them when the season is done. As such, you won’t find a selection of prom dresses online, but there’s a good reason. Lund & Taylor encourages customers to get personal help finding the perfect dress, and you simply can’t do that online.
To reach out, go to Lund & Taylor Bridal Gallerie’s contact page.
9. Premiere Couture
Premiere Couture is Cambridge’s top spot for dresses in all styles. They’re trendy, selectively curated, and offer wonderfully friendly service in line with their dedication to friendship and family. Premiere Couture is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday-Friday, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturdays, and closed Sunday-Monday. Appointments are required all days of the week.

10. Charlotte’s Bridal & Formal Wear
Located in bustling downtown La Crosse, Charlotte’s Bridal & Formal Wear is your one-stop-shop for all things dress-related. Whether you’re a bride or just getting ready for your prom, they’re sure to have a touch of everything you could need. Charlotte’s Bridal is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Monday-Tuesday and Friday, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Wednesday-Thursday, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturdays, and from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sundays.
Charlotte’s Bridal has a bit of everything for everyone, but they’re an excellent stop for those plus-sized queens in my readership. The plus-sized collection is not only stunning but much more extensive than those at other similar shops. It’s worth noting that their prom dresses aren’t listed online, but they will be when prom season 2023 rolls around once again (beginning in early January).
