They will also be carrying a variety of accessories from Camilla Christine, Ti Adoro and Untamed Petals.
Owner Katie explains how she ended up back in Victor with the plans for the bridal salon.
“I worked in marketing for retailers in New York City for over thirteen years, and as part of that represented an online bridal brand. That experience really sparked my interest in the industry. This is one of the most important and fun shopping days a woman will ever have. What an honor to be able to be a part of it (plus, who doesn’t love working with beautiful gowns?). When my sister was ready to find a gown for her wedding, we had many different experiences at bridal shops. However, when we visited the original Lovely Bride in NYC’s West Village, we were just amazed by the friendly, informed and inviting staff, as well as the selection of unique designers and high quality gowns at all price points. I wanted to be able to bring that experience and selection to brides here in Rochester and all of upstate New York.
“We offer a unique experience. Our knowledgeable and friendly! stylists will walk brides through the collection so they can play an active role in selecting the gowns they wish to try. Our setting is a beautiful home built in 1838 and decorated to feel as lovely as can be. Shopping at Lovely, will feel just like stopping by your best friend’s house to pick out your wedding gown.
“In addition, the designers we will be carrying are often up and coming, unique, or not currently available at other local boutiques, which offers Western New York brides the opportunity to try something new and feel truly special on their big day.”
If you’re unfamiliar with the notion of “Trunk Shows,” it’s an opportunity for a designers entire collection and/or special order items to visit stores throughout the year. They range from one-four weeks long and are a great and exciting way to see what’s new and trendy in the bridal industry. Here is a list of the trunk shows Lovely will be hosting for 2016:
Lea-Ann Belter – July 9th-19th Watters – August 28th-30th Ivy & Aster – September 18th-20th Camilla Christine – September 25th-27th Nicole Miller – October 2nd-4th Elizabeth Dye – October 23rd-25th Hayley Paige – November 13th-15th
