Lavender Bridal Gowns Stylized with Lyssa Ann Portraits

A Note From Alyssa

The first time I set foot into the Lavender Bridal Salon, I was in bridal heaven. Gorgeous gowns trimmed each rack and sparkles of beautiful, timeless gowns filled my eyes. Laurel was so sweet to direct me in the perfect gown for the style and vision of the stylized shoots. For each model that came to try on, she had the perfect fit and style that would compliment their body types. What I loved about the gowns as well is though these are designer gowns that feel and look expensive, their price tags were the opposite. Super affordable for any budget and look. You won't be disappointed.

A Interview With Laurel

What does your shop specialize in?

Lavenders focus is providing brides with gowns,grooms tuxedos,bridesmaids gowns, mother of the couple gowns, flower girls. We also specialize in boutique one on one styling for proms and homecomings. 

How'd you get your niche'?

Figuring out what we wanted Lavenders to be really didn't come easy, when we opened our doors we wanted to try to be everything to everyone, and in time figuring out what we wanted our business to be was to not only deliver a beautiful product but with a memory that would last a lifetime. One thing still holds true to what we founded our business on, treating people the way you'd want to be treated. 

How many years have you been in business?

This year I am proud to say we will be in business for 11 years. 

How do you describe your style or ideal bride? 

I would say my style for Lavenders is a calming and super relaxed atmosphere, buying your wedding dress is a one in a lifetime purchase and, I believe that the experience of doing so is just as important. That's why we came up with a unique way of meeting with our brides. We sit down one on one and get to know them, their love story, and all the details of the wedding before we even start to shop for gowns.  I think that sets the tone for the appointment, then the bride feels very comfortable with the stylist the way you would be with a friend, or even a mother in some cases. The stylist really wants to fill your need in finding a gown but making sure you are cared for and your needs are met at the same time. 
As far as the ideal bride we certainly recolonize that there are different styles of brides, but we can of course serve all brides to meet there needs. My ideal bride would be someone I can call a friend at the end of our appointment, someone who is open minded in her wedding day style. 

What sets your shop apart from the others?

The experience again at Lavenders sets us apart from other shops, when you come into Lavenders you will be greeted with a friendly smile or even a familiar face. We like to get to know our clients and help them from beginning to end. We are truly a small business when you choose your gown at Lavenders we are always here to work with you, you may even send me a text on a Sunday at 10pm and you get me a real person, who is willing to go above and beyond to help you! That says something these days when were used to corporatations  some times bigger isn't always better! 

Whats your favorite designer and why?

I would say we have a great mix awesome designers but my favorite today would have to be Stella York, the quality and the fit of these gowns is really unbeatable for the cost of the dress. These gowns will retail around $1,300.00 which is really incredible for the product that you are getting. We offer custom options with these gowns that ensure a perfect fit. Just beautiful dresses that our on trend and very savvy for any bride.
