How many of you can say you love your job? Probably quite a few, but some....maybe not so much. But I consider myself very fortunate in that I LOVE what I do! And why is that, you ask? Well, let me tell you why....
First of all, it's the people who come here. I LOVE helping my brides find the gown they've been dreaming about since they were little girls. It is so gratifying to know that I had a small part in helping each bride with one of the biggest choices she will make for her wedding (other than the groom, of course)! And with these beautiful brides comes their moms, and mother-in-laws-to-be and bridesmaids. And then we get to meet the groom for tuxedos! The guys are always a fun bunch, too!
Another reason I love my job is because I can offer my customers exceptional customer service. I do the best I can to answer your questions, and if I don't know the answer, I can certainly find out for you.
And, definitely no quotas or commissions here, so we're not pushy either! While I love to see a bride find her gown on her first trip in, sometimes it's just not in the cards for her to decide that quickly. And that is definitely OK. Yes, you can sleep on it. Yes, you can take pictures of it. Yes, you can come in again and try on your favorites...and any new gowns that come in, too! It's all about YOU, not me!
And I love being able to offer perks to our brides: If you buy a full-price bridal gown, virtually everything in the store (excluding tuxedos) is at a 10% discount....that includes bridesmaids' dresses, moms' dresses, flower girls' dresses, SPANX, veils, headpieces, jewelry, etc. It also comes with a FREE breathable bridal bag and we will steam it for you prior to pick up. You may store your gown here until the day of your wedding if you want...and it's FREE storage! If you are on a limited budget, we do have a sale room with many great buys...they are beautiful gowns, just discontinued by the manufacturer. Since they are at a discount, we do charge to steam or clean spots. But you get the same deal for storage!
I LOVE being able to offer you alterations. You don't have to go finding an alterations person when you buy here either. I have the best seamstress around and she is very flexible as far as times for meeting up with my brides. We've been friends since junior high school and she was actually MY maid of honor. So we've been friends for many years and we work so well together.
Oh, and one more thing I love about my job...and that's going to Market. I get to go and see some of the most beautiful gowns and try to decide which gowns will offer my brides the most for the money they invest in them. I meet designers, reps, CEOs of large bridal houses, and other shop owners to network with. It's a hard couple of days, but I love it.
I've just hit the high points...there's many other reasons why I love it, but I've gone on long enough! If you're interested in coming to see what we have to offer, just call or email me. I'd love for you to be a Main Street Bride!
