About Us

Wedding dress shopping is such an essential part of a bride’s story! We want to explore, explain and celebrate the bridal process and also give you a glimpse of everything that happens behind the scenes! We will talk candidly about today’s bride and how she searches for a dress, and all things related to that journey! You will also be privy to the way the process happens on the other end – from the salon’s point of view: dealing with the brides and their families, the crazy bridezillas we put up with as well as the sweet ones that make us cry!
