White Dresses Boutique LOVES Bella Bridesmaids
Our Southern Bridal Shops are excited to share another talented Southern wedding vendor with our amazing Alabama and Tennessee Brides! This week we are delighted to share all about Bella Bridesmaids Nashville and their amazing owner, Allison.
When it comes to bridesmaids dresses, no one does it better than Bella Bridesmaids. We have had so many brides from both our Huntsville Bridal Shop and Nashville Bridal Shop find the perfect gowns for their maids at Bella Bridesmaid showrooms. We have been so impressed with the amazing selection Bella Bridesmaids offers to our brides and the perfect customer service they provide that when a bride asks about bridesmaid gowns we immediately say Bella Bridesmaids!
Many brides have asked us why we don't offer bridesmaids gowns at our boutique. The answer is simple - Bella Bridesmaids is completely focused on creating the perfect look for the bride's leading ladies and we think each bridal party deserves a shop who is totally focused on doing one thing well! Bella Bridesmaids does bridesmaids outfitting so perfectly that there is no reason to try to bring in the gowns to offer ourselves! They have an amazing selection and are the sweetest girls to work with!
Our love affair with Bella Bridesmaids runs deep. Ella's bridesmaids gowns were found at the Birmingham Bella Bridesmaids location and Morgan just found her bridesmaid gowns at the Nashville Bella Bridesmaids Showroom! Each experience was perfectly smooth. Additionally, we have each bought gowns for many weddings from Bella Bridesmaids and we just loved working with them as clients!
We sat down with Allison from Bella Bridesmaids Nashville to get the skinny on all things bridesmaids!
Q: Tell us a little about Bella Bridesmaids.
A: Bella Bridesmaids is an intimate boutique focused on outfitting the brides leading ladies! We work by appointment so that we can give individual attention to our brides and maids in a fun loving atmosphere. We have 49 showrooms across the country. All are individually owned by passionate and fashion loving women! We offer over 25 designers in a variety of price points, colors, fabrics and styles. Truly something for everyone!
Q: How did you get into the business of offering bridesmaids gowns?
A: I always loved fashion (particularly wedding fashion) and dreamed of owning my own business. As I began my research into becoming an entrepreneur I found Bella Bridesmaids. I reached out to the owners to learn more about their path into owning a bridesmaids boutique. I fell in love with the consultative nature of the business and the dresses of course! I jumped right in to owning Bella Bridesmaids Nashville six months later and haven't looked back!
Q: What type of lines does Bella Bridesmaids offer?
A: We have the largest collection of bridesmaids dresses from the world's leading designers in our Bella Showrooms. In our Nashville showroom we have over 25 designers! Some of our best sellers include Amsale, Jenny Yoo, Monique Lhuillier and Joanna August.
Q: What is the price range of bridesmaids dresses at your shop?
A: Most of our dresses start around $200 and go up to $400. We carry a few different collections in each price point to offer the most variety for bridesmaids in all price points.
Q: What are your favorite trends for bridesmaids right now?
A: We love how creative our brides are getting! It is often surprising to our brides how much effort the "effortless" look takes and we are proud to have perfected the art of mixing colors, fabrics, prints, etc. to help them make their bridal party unique.
Q: Who should you bring with you for bridesmaids shopping?
A: We recommend starting with 1-3 key decision makers (your mom, maid of honor, etc.). In our experience, starting with the whole crew sounds fun, but often times can become very overwhelming for the bride. Once you have a first appointment with a small group, we can arrange a second appointment for everyone or start on fittings if you have made a decision.
Q: How many months in advance should you purchase bridesmaids dresses?
A: Typically a dress can take anywhere from 2-6 months depending on the designer and time of year (hello Chinese New Year!). We recommend ordering with enough time to have your dresses arrive a month or so before your wedding so your bridesmaids have plenty of time for alterations.
Q: What is the perk of buying your bridesmaids gowns at a Bella Bridesmaids?
A: Selection, Service and Style!
Bella Bridesmaids loves a wedding! With hundreds of dresses to choose from, your personal Bella stylist is ready for anything. Whether you're getting married in a grand ballroom or having a hoedown on the family farm, we have you covered. At Bella Bridesmaids, we recognize that every bride has her own vision and each bridesmaid is unique. We'll give you personal attention to help you make sure every bridesmaid feels like the leading lady. Our online ordering link is perfect for the out of town bridesmaid, but still allows our brides to have control over the look of their wedding. Our stylists are insanely knowledgeable on our products. We also have strong relationships with our designers which helps with communication in regards to an order throughout the entire process. Ultimately leading to a bride's peace of mind!
Q: How do you suggest finding a bridesmaids dress that looks good on a lot of different sizes?
A: Many of our brides have turned to mixing and matching styles in the same fabric so that each bridesmaid can pick the style that flatters their figure best. For our more traditional brides wanting a single bridesmaid style, we have several go-to favorite styles that tend to flatter all body types!
Q: What are some tips for finding the perfect bridesmaids gowns?
A: Keep an open mind! Just like when shopping for your wedding dress, the hanger does not always do the dress justice. Our stylists are insanely knowledgable and are listening to your every want and need. We may find you something that you haven't even thought of! Though you are trying to keep a lot of people happy when shopping for bridesmaids dresses, it is still your day. Keep the style of your wedding in min and make the decision based on what you want not based on all of the opinions flying your way!
Now that you have heard all about bridesmaid styles and shopping, make sure to schedule an appointment with Bella Bridesmaids! You will be so happy you will. And, if you don't mind, mention that White Dresses sent you!
