Part 2: I Said YES To My Dream Dress

Philadelphia wedding dress sketchesWedding dress shopping.  When a bride hears this, it may evoke any number of emotions. For the most part this will be excitement and joy, yet, for some the process overwhelms.  As a bride-to-be working for Darianna Bridal & Tuxedo I have now been on both sides of the experience.  I love being able to relate to our brides so closely!

I am a year out from my wedding and yes, I already have my dress!

Darianna Bridal & Tuxedo’s Real Bride: Heather Wilkinson-Slobodinsky

The Meeting:

Mark and I met in January 2013 in physical therapy school at Temple when both of our classes were at a conference in San Diego and have been together since then.

The Proposal:

August 8th, 2015 in LBI. I absolutely thought he was going to propose the night before since we were going to have dinner at our favorite restaurant in Philadelphia and was pretty bummed when I was wrong!  But little did I know, both of our families were totally in on the surprise for the proposal to happen in LBI where Mark’s parents own a beach house. My parents and sister had planned to come down to LBI for the weekend and my mom suggested that we take “family photos by the beach” before dinner. This was actually the ploy to get everyone to the beach for Mark to pop the question.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving is a very important holiday, a truly American one.  While it is the official start of the holiday shopping season, that is not the meaning to us.  Strange as retailers, right?

To us, Thanksgiving is about making memories with family, friends, and loved ones.  Carrying on traditions and creating new ones, celebrating life, and appreciating the passing of time with all of the changes it brings.

Darianna Bridal & Tuxedo will always will be closed on Thanksgiving day and Black Friday.

All families deserve attention but it is never easy to find the time.  These are two days we close so that our team can reconnect, unplug from work, and recharge.

And hey, if shopping together is your family’s Black Friday tradition, then by all means shop!  Shop local, right?!  🙂

Her first installment features the emotions surrounding the best day of her life (so far) – her engagement. Read on for a whole bunch of “Awwww” moments!

Best Day of My Life; the Day I Got Engaged

I am a bridal and formalwear consultant at Darianna Bridal & Tuxedo, a Bucks County bridal store, and helping brides and grooms find the perfect outfit for their big day is truly a privilege. I get to hear their stories and talk about their wedding plans. It’s so much fun and now I’d love to share my story as a bride-to-be.

As I think about the day I got engaged I can’t help but feel giddy; at no other time in my life have I felt more excitement.

NYC Bridal Market – October 2016

One of the perks of a job in the bridal business – as if being in the bridal business isn’t already great enough – is going to bridal market in New York City.  This past October we sent our consultants up and besides having a great time together, they also received quite an education.

Meeting with designers like Kitty Chen and Rina DiMontella, checking out the new tuxedo styles from Tuxedo by Sarno, and watching the runway shows is as eye-opening as it is exciting.  They learned even more about construction, fabrics and laces, beadwork and embroidery, all while strengthening partnerships with our vendors and seeing the latest trends.  The education is so important so we can offer our brides and grooms the best advice and selection available.
