Welcome to Tomball
As we open the doors as Evangeline Bridal in old town Tomball,
I want to take a moment to introduce myself, my family, and my why for bringing a bridal boutique to this big little town.
My name is Candice Gold and I am a lifelong North Houston resident. I spent the first half of my childhood in Cypress (hey Lamkin Elementary) and the second half in Magnolia. Two short months after I graduated from Magnolia High School I moved to Tomball, where I’ve been for almost 13 years now. I am most definitely a native Houstonian (even though I’ve always been just on the outskirts) and I am extremely proud of that. I met my sweet husband at a bar on Washington Avenue ten years ago, and I am still so thankful my friend talked me into going out that night. I’m even more thankful that I didn’t listen to myself… the girl who swore she would never date a guy she met in a bar. He is a local Firefighter with Cypress Creek Fire Department and absolutely loves what he does. We have two precious (depending on the day) daughters and one spoiled rotten rescue pup.
Owning a bridal boutique is the dream I never knew I had
I didn’t come equipped with a bridal background. I had never worked in a bridal shop or even as part of the wedding industry in general. I didn’t have big, grand dreams of one day owning a bridal boutique. What I did have was a big, grand dream of owning a business and owning it in old town Tomball. Tomball itself is an amazingly wonderful little-ish town (thanks in big part to the Chamber of Commerce who loves every square foot of the city), but old town Tomball is what literal (or, my) dreams are made of. Every single bit of it is so special to me – from the clothing boutiques, antique shops, restaurants, and multitude of small businesses all along Main Street, Market Street and Commerce Street (and more), to the lampposts that light the way once dusk hits, to the incredibly strong resident and business community that makes Tomball what it is. It’s charming, it’s cozy, and it’s comforting. It’s got a local and southern feel to it that cannot be explained: only experienced. It’s worth a trip out here on any given day, but it’s definitely worth one to a bride that is gathering her friends and family to help her find her dress.

A bride can meet her family & friends and attend an appointment at any bridal boutique, but very few places will she be able to make an entire day of it.
Here, you can schedule your Saturday appointment for 11am and let us help you find your dress. You’ll leave here around 12:30, just in time to walk across the street to hit The Tomball Farmers Market and purchase a few goodies from local farmers and artisans. At that point you’ll likely be hungry so you can stay on the Farmers Market Side and grab a loaded baked potato at EveryBellies, or walk back across the street for lunch at The Whistle Stop Tea Room. After you leave with an extremely happy belly and a hug from the owner (depending on where you go: Nicole at EveryBellies or Cindy at The Whistle Stop), you can spend hours upon hours shopping the antique stores, boutiques, plant store, book store, and so much more – all staying within a few blocks from where you started. Lastly, before you head back for your drive home you can stop by Re:Bar Café & Juicestillery for a caffeinated pick me up, or swing thru Denovo Coffee if you don’t want to leave your vehichle. This town is so exquisitely unique and I am doing my best to bring what I love best about this town, directly into the boutique.
Downtown Tomball Must-sees:
Evangeline Bridal has a very clean and lovely aesthetic, with beautiful white walls, blush colors sprinkled throughout, and a barn wood pallet wall behind our racks of dresses.
We have soft music playing as you walk in, and we will greet you with a warm smile and much excitement – because we are so thankful you chose us. One of our best features is our private and cozy changing room and viewing area. It’s beautiful and quaint and helps you feel comfortable enough to relax. We offer you water, flavored sparkling water, tea from HTeaO down the street, and snacks to help calm the nerves. Learn more about our boutique here.
Last, but most certainly not least are our wedding dresses.
Each designer we bring in is brought on with intention. We ensure that their dresses are well made, that the price is in line with the quality, that the dresses are created in ethical and humanitarian-approved factories, and that they are inclusive of all shapes and sizes. From there, our dresses are carefully curated and chosen wisely. We lean more towards the timeless dresses, the romantic dress, and dresses with a slight bohemian & free feel. We currently carry Lea-Ann Belter Bridal out of Toronto (note: every dress is hand sewn in Toronto and fully customizable), Colby John Bridal Couture out of Minneapolis, and an assortment of dresses from our own Private Collection.

I am so proud to have been the person who was able to open the first-ever Tomball bridal boutique
– it is an honor I do not take lightly and I will work every day to make each one even better than the day before. I hope you will visit our beautiful brick building right on Main Street, and let us show you how we can take care of you.
With so much love and even more gratitude,
Hi, I'm Candice!
I’m a Native Houstonian, a mom, a firefighter wife, and the owner of Evangeline Bridal. I’m slightly obsessed with all things French, and it certainly shows in the boutique. I love the charm of downtown Tomball and the community that encompasses it, and I believe our spot on Main Street is a perfect one. When you visit us, look for the “Bonjour, Tomball” mural on the side of our building.
