This week we are highlighting one of our preferred vendors for wedding dresses, Main Street Bridal! Kelsey Ott is the owner, and she shared with us some details about her shop and what to expect. Keep reading to learn about Centertown's newest bridal shop.
Why did you decide to open your shop?
"We wanted to bring more options for bridal gowns to the area, and offer a different experience."
What is one thing you absolutely LOVE about your shop?
"What I love most about the shop is the personalized atmosphere we created."
What is unique about your shop?
"We wanted to be different from other stores so we created a unique personalized experience in our shop. When you make an appointment, it is just you and your guests in the shop. All of our gowns are out on the floor and you are able to look through and choose what you like. We are there to help get you in the dresses, and find the perfect one!"
What is your favorite thing about weddings?
"I love watching the grooms reaction to his bride when she walks down the aisle."
What inspired your bridal shop decor? Why?
"I love florals and old things, our shop is located in the original bank building in our town. Built in 1900, it has brick walls and tall ceilings. We really wanted to incorporate that industrial feel but with a feminine touch."
How do you go about curating the dresses for your shop?
"We attend market twice a year, to see in person the newest gown from our designers. We also work with private design houses to curate our own line of gowns. We love being able to offer our own line of gowns, they are different from the big brands in that they can be customized. We can change the straps, the color, the skirt shape, and more!"
What can people expect from visiting and/or buying from your shop?
"We are open by appointment only at this time. When you book with us, we will send you a questionnaire to help us prepare for your appointment. We are very laid back and want you to feel at home and comfortable in our shop."
Is there a particular vendor you absolutely LOVE to partner with?
"Our favorite vendor to work with so far is La femme. Their dresses are amazing quality, great price, and the people are amazing to work with. They go above and beyond to help us with whatever we need."
Anything else you want people to know?
"We just celebrated our 1st birthday and are super excited for year 2. We can't wait to meet you and get the opportunity to be part of your special day!"
