Our Story


"Love what you do and you’ll never work a day in your life!"


The Bridal Boutique by MaeMe was founded in 2010 just outside New Orleans, Louisiana by Melissa Estess shortly after becoming a bride herself! She was underwhelmed with her own bridal shopping experience and returned to her hometown to create a bridal boutique unlike any other in the area. At MaeMe, brides experience luxury in a beautiful and approachable environment with friendly personal stylists and unmatched service.


With nearly 400 wedding dresses in boutique and 100 wedding dresses in sizes 18-34, MaeMe offers an extensive selection at varying price points from $1300-$6700. Whether you are shopping for a show-stopping runway style wedding dress or a traditional southern gown your grandmother will adore, we promise to create the most enjoyable shopping memories while saying YES to the dress of your dreams! At MaeMe, you’re like family!


Today, we are New Orleans’ best rated bridal salon, known for our service, selection, and inclusivity.

Our Mission


We are committed to serving our brides whole heartedly, providing beautiful wedding dresses and exceptional customer service, and encouraging and supporting our brides as they prepare for one of the most important days of their lives. We believe in the commitment of marriage and are passionate about investing and supporting the women in our community. We invite you to join our tribe, become an ambassador of the brand, and share your joy with others!

Our Serve


Serving others and giving back in meaningful ways is incredibly important and is the pulse of MaeMe. When you purchase your wedding dress at MaeMe, you help the vulnerable children and families in our community. We support organizations right here in the New Orleans metro area dedicated to repairing, supporting, and encouraging the less fortunate women, children, and families in our local community.


Every year, we donate through our MaeMe Gives Back campaign to a local organization who shares our mission and passion to share the love and compassion of Christ with others. In the past few years, we have supported foster children and families, helped to rescue women and children from human trafficking, fed the hungry, contributed to finding cures for cancer and neurological diseases, and provided necessary needs for homeless women and children.


Our continued commitment to giving back to the community and creating a more loving world is possible because of our brides! It isn’t the only reason you should say YES at MaeMe, but we think it is kind of wonderful!
