The Story

The Story

Bailee shopped with us during a trip back to Ohio to visit family. Like many Gilded Brides, she did her homework and submitted a long list of styles she was loving from our website. They had a similar vibe with clean lines, classic ball gown shape, crisp fabric. A quintessential #GildedBride look.


I hung the gowns in exactly the order she’d listed them. I had a feeling they were ranked. Antonella by Anne Barge was first on the list. And bazinga! FIRST DRESS MAGIC.


She was loving a tiny neckline accent from another dress and was making her second guess. BUT, we helped her envision how her seamstress in Arizona could help her add that in alterations so she could get ALL the things. She also wanted a pearl veil to complete her look. Good thing I had JUST gotten a new style from Jaxie Bridal. She became our first Jaxie bride, too!


Sometimes all it takes is just one itty bitty change to make her the ONE. I’m just so, so glad that I helped Bailee over the TOP and say YES!
