    Whether you're newly engaged, or only weeks away from your wedding, at some point of your wedding planning, you'll need to find the perfect gifts for all of the special people helping you get down the aisle.  Many brides are even coming up with clever gifts to incorporate in their "proposal" to their bridesmaids- whether it's a bottle of champagne or cutsie poem.  Regardless of WHEN you're needing the perfect give, we've all been there.  It's hard to find a gift to get across how much someone

    I don't know how you feel about autumn being just around the corner, but I know that I don't feel prepared- this summer seemed to fly by!  Now that my daughter is back in school (1st grade) and the freedom of summer vacations and spontaneous trips to the zoo are no-more, I've had a couple moments to sit back and realize what a truly busy summer just went by- not only personally, but for the shop too! Some highlights:  We hit our 6-month mark of being in our new location (and we're loving it

    Final Touches
    Once you have your gown chosen, you may think the hard part's behind you... but wait, did you think about your accessories?   Many brides have an idea of what they'd like to wear in their hair or on their ears for their wedding day, but matching up pieces that compliment the gown, as well as each other can be tricky- but really fun! My first recommendation is to try on pieces when you choose your gown, just to get your mind working on what you like and don't like.  You don't have to make

    If you've been dreaming of your perfect wedding dress since you were a little girl, you're not alone!  So many of us have been (and Pinterest makes it even easier to do it)! Today's bridal fashions are as diverse and unique as each bride: from a trending all-lace gown to the always-classic satin, you also have to decide if you want mermaid, sheath, ballgown or A-line.  Now, we even have colors to choose from: are you completely set on a bright white wedding dress or is a softer ivory better

    Why I do what I do
    So...you've noticed this store is new to Lincoln- rest assured though, the bridal business is nothing new to me!  I have been working in Lincoln in the bridal industry since 1999 and have owned my own store since March 2012.  My husband and I had big dreams for our future as small business owners; it just took some time to get where we dreamed we'd be. We bought our store when that cute little flower girl that you see looking at herself in the mirror was only 3 months old.    Another daughter
