CREATIVE DESIGNER & DIRECTOR
Glamorous, Elegant and Utterly Unique – These words describe both MDP Bridal Boutique and Its Creative Designer and Director Maria Del Pilar Marroquin.
As a young girl, Pilar dreamed of a life in “Fashion,” In 1975 Pilar immigrated from Ecuador to the USA to make her dreams come true…
In 1989 Pilar discovered her Love for Bridal while working at the famous Kleinfeld’s, best known for their TV show “Say Yes To The Dress”.
After working for over 20 plus years in the bridal industry with some of the top designers in New York City, Pilar made a lifetime decision to move to Orlando, Florida. Pilar knew that she had more to contribute, filled with great hope, new ideas, and relying on her creativity and careful care to detail, in 2017 she designed her first Maria Del Pilar Bridal collection.
Proud and overwhelmed on how great the collections were doing and after great consideration, Pilar open her flagship store in Downtown Orlando in 2019.
Today we are recognized as one of the top bridal shops in Central Florida. We are a full-service Bridal Boutique. When you select one of our designer gowns, you will be wearing something far more than just a wedding dress. You make a statement, one that exemplifies the style, the attitude, and the elegance of the bride, and the woman you are.

“Pilar, I absolutely loved my wedding dress! On my wedding day, everyone kept saying, “You look like the queen of this castle,” and it was the best comment ever. I felt confident, radiant, and elegant in my gown. It was the perfect balance of classic and modern…the dress was so me. When my judgment was clouded by people’s opinions, you helped guide me back to my desires and vision as a bride. For that and more, I thank you. I wish I could wear the dress every single day. I might just dress up again for fun, haha! Pilar, thank you a million times. You are INCREDIBLE. Your girls at the boutique are also the best! Love, Alondra”
