About Our Salon

My name is Peggie Donowitz and I am proud to be the creator and owner of The One Bridal Salon.  Having always been the “unofficial fashion advisor” for friends and families, I decided to put my talents to the test by pursuing a job in fashion retail.  Several years ago, after helping our daughter plan her wedding, I thought working as a bridal consultant could be fun!  That experience turned out not only to be fun, but it provided me with a creative outlet that I had been missing.  Helping you select the dress that you will wear on one of the most memorable days of your life is a gratifying and fulfilling experience for me.  Listening to you describe your vision for the day and helping you translate that vision into a reality using my unique sense of fashion and style is what led me to open my own bridal salon.

Having lived in Charlottesville for almost 30 years, I could not imagine a more beautiful location for a bridal salon.  I look forward to working with brides in Charlottesville and Central Virginia.  Together we will find “The One”.


"I would highly recommend this store to any bride. Peggie is incredibly sweet, poised, and respectful. She gives just the right amount of guidance to help you find your perfect gown. The store is gorgeous and you get the whole salon to yourself, which makes a really unique and special experience. They have beautiful dresses in a lot of different styles. I found my perfect dress and couldn't be happier with the attentiveness and care that Peggie has given me."
