Sisters Bridal Boutique – Vendor Feature
Today I am excited to share an area wedding vendor with you. Recently I met Pam, the owner of Sister’s Bridal Boutique. She asked if I would like to hang some photos in her boutique and I in turn asked if she would like to be part of the Vendor Feature here on the blog. We were both happy to oblige.
Last week I headed over to Van Wert, Ohio to take some photos of Sister’s Bridal Boutique. Immediately I loved the location of the store. It sits perfectly on the corner of Main Street and Washington Street in downtown Van Wert. Walking in, the first thing I noticed was the bling. Gorgeous dresses were hanging as well as a chandelier that I was slightly in love with. Pam was with a bride as I arrived so as she met with her I took photos.
This is a terrific Bridal Boutique. I was impressed and hope you will head on over to Van Wert to see for yourself.
Pam, I thank you for your time and for allowing me to feature you here at Amy’s Photography.
Amy: How long have you been in business? Pam: As of June 30th – 5 years.
What were your aspirations for being a bridal salon owner? Pam: I took my daughter prom shopping in January of 2010 and realized that most businesses did not offer customer service to their customers. I immediately new there was a need for a boutique offering personal service to their customers. I ran with the idea and opened the bridal boutique in June 2010.
Amy: What are some bridal trends that you see coming for 2015 and 2016? Pam: Our brides can not get enough lace, the designers are layering lace on bridal gowns. Even in the Prom Dresses the lace continues along with Mom gowns and Home Coming dresses. More of the bridal trends is the Boho, Bohemian Bride. She is simple, straight fit with a low back and definitely not traditional.
Amy: What are some trends that you see fading? Pam: Our designers are showing more bridal gowns with straps, more coverage. So the strapless is fading out and more is in. Although I say that, it will take a while for the trends to trickle down to the Midwest. The other style that is fading is the Mermaid, more brides want a straight fit or fit and flair.
Amy: Do you have a recommendation as to who to bring with you to your bridal appointment? Pam: Yes I do, not more than 2 and one of those should be the decision maker in your life. Too many people can confuse the bride. Not bringing the main person is a mistake.
Amy: What are some of your favorite designers for wedding gowns? Pam: For me it is Stella York, a young designer with fresh and inspiring gowns for all walks of life. My second favorite is Christina Wu, beautiful designs with the bling factor for the bride that wants to make a statement. Both are very beautiful and both very different. I carry two private lines of bridal that is for the Bride that wants to find an unadvertised unique bridal gown.
Amy: What other services do you offer besides bridal? (tuxes, prom, accessories etc.) Pam: I offer Bridesmaids, Mother Gowns, Flower Girl/1st Communion dresses, Home Coming dresses, Prom dresses, and Tuxedo Rentals.
Amy: Is there anything else you would like to share with the readers: Pam: At Sisters Bridal Boutique, we experience moms, grandmothers and aunts that relive the moment that they found their bridal gown with the bride. We are creating a memory for the next generation of Brides to share with their children. We want our customer to have a great experience and recommend us to their family and friends.
Our boutique offers in house alterations at a fraction of the cost of the big box bridal stores, we are happy when our customer is happy.
