Furniture and Fabric Fun

Written by: Kristy

Last weekend, The White Dress Bridal became more defined, aesthetically speaking.  How did this happen, you wonder?  Well, by taking two very important and much-anticipated planning trips with my mother – one to Ikea and another to Chicago’s own “fabric warehouse”.  Both places helped us scout out what exactly we think we wanted to use to decorate and furbish our lovely little boutique!

TWD makes headlines!

Was it front page newspaper news?  Well no…but in my mind, it was just as great!  Read on for the background story and news article.

A few weeks ago, I got a phone call from Tom Tolen, a reporter for the online news site, the Brighton Patch {http://brighton.patch.com/}.  Tom wanted to interview me about The White Dress bridal store Ann Arbor Michigan!  Of course, I was more than stoked to chatter away about the boutique, as Tom quickly found out.

Hello World !

At long last, The White Dress is here!  Ok, maybe it hasn’t seemed so “at long last” to you.  And technically, we aren’t officially “here” since we are still under construction.  Well, technicality, schmech-nicality.  I am just delighted to be writing my first blog post as owner of The White Dress!

First, allow me an introduction.  My name is Kristy and I am the very excited and proud creator of The White Dress.  I currently work as an accountant, but have always dreamed about opening up a bridal boutique to help brides look for their dream; well, their dream dress anyway!  I am a native of Michigan; but I currently reside in Chicago, Illinois which means that I am counting down the days for the move back to my home state.  And just so you can get to know me a little bit better, here are some tidbits about me: I love dogs, but don’t own any.  I almost always wear a skirt or dress.  I love to laugh.  I love fashion.  And most of all, I love weddings.

So full disclosure.  As I am sure you have figured out, how can we possibly have a Bride of the Month when we have barely been open yet?  (We can’t fool you, smarty pants.)  Well, it’s true.  Our very first Bride of the Month didn’t get her dress at The White Dress.  But, that doesn’t make her any less fabulous (as you will soon see).  And Christine graciously decided to give us a hand by showing all of you just what being Bride of the Month means.  Thank you Christine!

And one last very important note.  All photographs, unless otherwise noted, are by Kai Heeringa Photography based out of Grand Rapids, Michigan.  (And as you will see, Kai and Kayley are jaw dropping ah. maz. ing.)

So, without further ado… (more…)
