Our name

The Plumed Serpent was established in Westport in 1970. Originally the store started as a Mexican antique shop and imported furniture and accessories from Mexico for the local clientele. The Plumed Serpent or Quetzalcoatl is an Aztec god related to the gods of wind – a cool name for a shop dealing with Mexican imports. Through the years, what the store carried changed but the name remained.

Founded in 1970, The Plumed Serpent has been at the forefront of Bridal Style in Connecticut for over 50 years.

Our goal is simple…to give you access to a curated collection of designers in a relaxed and welcoming setting. We offer our Plumed clients exclusive collections that are only available at our store in Connecticut, including Monique Lhuillier and Lela Rose.

It all starts with scheduling your first appointment, the well-trained eye of our Bridal Stylists, and your vision. Together, we will find THE ONE.

Meet Alison Luciano

I believe brides are shopping for more than just a dress; they're looking for an intimate, individualized experience.

When I took over The Plumed Serpent two decades ago, my vision was to create a couture bridal boutique that catered to the fashionable bride and her individual needs.

After all, shopping for a wedding dress is something many women only do once (or maybe twice) in a lifetime. It helps to have the practiced eye of an expert on your side. My goal is to create a highly personalized bridal experience with a singular focus: You.

The way I see it, you can find a wedding dress almost anywhere. But if you're looking for more than just a dress… if you're searching for an experience that celebrates you, your day, and your love for elegant, unique, beautifully crafted gowns, then I look forward to meeting you when you come in! 

What we’ve accomplished at The Plumed Serpent has exceeded my expectations. I look forward to welcoming you to my store so that we can do the same for you.

We would love to hear all about your love story and the vision for your wedding day.
