Hello There!

where a girl can be a girl

Dover Grace Alternative Boutique was launched on September 15, 2012 to be more than just a dress store.  The store aims to raise the self-esteem and promote the self-empowerment of all who enter its doors. We stand against bullying and support our charity, Extra Special People, year round.  Dover Grace Alternative Boutique is the place where a girl can be a girl!
DGA is located in the heart of historic Downtown Watkinsville and offers dresses and gowns for all ages and body types. We rent, sell, and consign dresses and also perform all alterations in house. We proudly sell dresses from size 00 to size 30. We also rent and sell tuxedos by Jim's Formal Wear and Tuxedo Central for all occasions.
