Gilded Social Bride
The Story

The Story

Emily envisioned a bridal look that wasn’t over the top but would still wow her guests and fit her outdoor vibe. She also wanted to stay inside her budget and was open to alternate length styles, too. Since our bridal and social collections were at different locations, she booked appointments for both, just to be sure to explore all her options.


She visited me in Granville first on that September day two years ago, found the ONE, and didn’t need to try on LWDs with Erin in Columbus after all. 


That appointment may have been one of the very few EVER I was relieved to cancel. You see, Emily was the first gal who became a #GildedBride after my dad died. When he passed, I wasn’t sure how or when I would get my groove back. I will forever be grateful that she shopped with me that day. I’m pretty certain there were a few tears when she said YES and not just hers. Thank you, Emily, for bringing me back to life!


Every #GildedBride has a story of how she and her wedding dress found each other in our shop. {Some apparently more deep than others ha!} You will never be just a sale to us. Your story is as much a part of ours as it is yours.
