Looking back over last year, I realized that Solutions Bridal has had many significant and exciting changes. For anyone who is an avid visitor to our salon, you've surely noticed the small changes that we make almost weekly, such as rearranging the dresses and changing the mannequins.

However, over the past year:

We acquired a new mother of the bride line, Jade, that has dresses made for every type of mom. We picked up many new bridal dresses, and picked up a new fabulous designer: Mikaella. As our accessories collection expanded, we put up three new shelves to display our favorites by the front desk. We were all pleasantly mesmerized by the changes in the world of bridesmaids as they first came out with above-the-knee dresses, and then dresses with prints instead of the same ol' solids. Hollywood Fashion Tape appeared on our shelves as our most recent life saving device for brides on their wedding day. We also picked up Ashton Alexander jewelry with many pieces in stock to help our last minute brides. My favorite addition to our salon in 2008 is the Valentine shoes, which have stunned many of our brides. They are some of the most beautiful shoes.

We forsee many exciting up and coming events for 2009 that I can share with you now. We will have a designer rep from Lori London coming in, which is always an exciting event. Solutions Bridal has also picked up a new designer, Alfred Sung, that will be coming in the salon this year.

We look forward to working with all our brides in the year to come, and can't wait to help you achieve your perfect bridal look.

Top 10 Advice on finding the DRESS!

  • Number One Rule: Be open minded! What you think reminds you of your grandmother's dress on the hanger, may in fact be the dress of your dreams.
  • Bring someone that knows your style better than their own. I'm sure the groom doesn't want to see you in something that your bestfriend would wear on her wedding day
  • DON'T PURCHASE YOUR DRESS ONLINE! You miss out on the whole experience.
  • Don't worry what the groom will think. If he loves you, he will love what you pick.
  • Have fun! Remember that you have been dreaming of this day since you were five. Don't let the decision put a cloud over your head
  • If you hate the little bow on the dress, ask the consultant if you can order it Chances are you can. Keep in mind (contrary to what the magazines always say) there might be a charge for it. It won't lower the cost of the dress.
  • Price vs. Love: If you love the dress, GO FOR IT! Don't settle for less on what your wearing for your big day. You can always take some of the budget from the centerpieces and so on. No one will know and we won't tell.
  • Research designers online and make a scrap book of styles that you like. Do keep in mind, that it may all change when you start trying on.
  • Save the group shopping for the mall. This should be a personal experience that you should only share with one or two.
  • When you find it, you find it. Don't second guess yourself or you will pick your second favorite.
