At Southern Protocol Bridal, you’d suspect the most important influence for our belles finding the one comes from their significant other. Often, however, the most beautiful bond we see behind “yes to the dress” is between a mother and daughter.

In fact, Southern Protocol Bridal is owned by a mother-daughter duo, Ann E. Ervin and Lisa S. Rice. Boutique Manager Michelle’s daughter, Makenna, is also a frequent face at our boutique and local events. The mother-daughter dynamic is in our DNA.

In so many of our bridal appointments, Mom is the sweet voice of encouragement and reason that leads our belle-to-be to finding her dream dress. Because of that, we carry a carefully curated collection of gowns that work well for our Mothers of the Bride, Mothers of the Groom and Mothers of the Debutante.

Because all our gowns are custom made, alterations can easily be made to fit a mom’s needs for the big day. In addition to design alterations, several of our designers also have unique material color pallets to select from, turning a wonderfully designed, high quality gown into a magical momma gown.

Come with your bride or debutante, or make it a party for you and your own girlfriends!
