An Elegant Afternoon
This past Sunday afternoon Noah and I had the privilege of joining some fellow Augusta bloggers at the new location of Elegant Bridals. Y'all. This place is STUNNING. From beginning to end our time at Elegant Bridals was absolutely a pleasure.
The new location features a massive bridal showroom and 8 oversized dressing rooms perfect for future brides to load full of the jaw-dropping gowns that line the walls. All of the dressing rooms are equipped with a piece of furniture holding the essentials: a hand mirror, bobby pins, tape measure, straight pins, and plenty of those handy clamps. Each dressing room closes with an adorable sliding barn door that must have come from the most chic farmhouse known to man, and I honestly think it would cause Jo Gains to tear up with pride!
When brides need a "real-feel" experience to help them make their decision, or if they need to see how a gown moves, there is a special feature in the main showroom designed for the very situation. The center of the bridal area is one long aisle that brides can process down! In the golden mirror at the end of the aisle they can get a glimpse into what their betrothed will see when they are walking down the aisle to them on the big day! Seriously, such a genius idea.
To the left of the main showroom you'll find...ANOTHER SHOWROOM! This second, and smaller showroom is full of bridesmaid and flower girl dresses, as well as special occasion gowns. It also has its own dressing rooms ready for these more specific types of try-on appointments. This is where Noah spent most of her time. Opposite from this smaller showroom, and to the right of the bridal area is a beautiful private event and holding room.
When we arrived Noah was whisked away by Alice who helped her pick what easily looked like 15+ dresses to try on. Seriously, she had so many options she didn't even get to try on all of her favorites! The girl was in 8-year-old heaven!
After a warm welcome and tour of the building from Traci I was shown to a dressing room and invited to select some gowns to try on! Sarah and Katelyn were two of the other associates that assisted us during our visit, and I feel comfortable saying that any girl would be lucky to be in their capable hands when shopping for their dream gown.
As for me, well, if I was actually a soon-to-be-bride I would have totally and unapologetically been that girl. You know the one... we've all seen her on the TV shows. I absolutely fell in love with the first dress I put on. The rest of the dresses I tried on during our visit were stunning, but couldn't hold a candle to the first.
I am not lying when I say that I could have spent hours there trying on gowns and playing dress up with my sweet girl!
If you are planning a wedding and live in Georgia or South Carolina then Elegant Bridals in Augusta, Georgia is a must visit. All of the ladies we worked with were warm, welcoming, and totally knew their stuff!
