Bisou Bride: Becky!


As we’ve been preparing for Sunday’s Sample Sale event, we got the most amazing (and timely) of messages!  A bride of ours, Becky, who purchased at last year’s sale, saw our notice about the event and was inspired to contact us: “Good morning!  As I open my inbox to read about the Bisou Bridal Sample Sale coming up, I remember the day I popped in…. not realizing I would find my dream dress!”  We LOVE hearing from our brides after the wedding, but this one gave us a special kind of tingle!

When bride’s shop the sale, they are frequently buying dresses in sizes that do not fit them; while we know our seamstress can alter the gown to fit, many brides are nervous about the final outcome.  Becky spoke to this: “Initially, I bought by dress many sizes too big, however Eleni [the seamstress] worked magic and turned it into a perfectly fitting dream gown- exceeding my expectations!  I absolutely love(d) it and felt like a princess on my wedding day!!”

Additionally, when all is said and done with sale dresses, bride’s take the dress (our one and only sample of the gown) and we say good bye to them and that dress… forever.  So when we opened Becky’s email, we were overwhelmed by the beauty of both a bride and a gown we hadn’t seen in a while!  We would love to extend our congratulations to Becky, as well as a sincere thank you: thank you for allowing us to be a part of this special and exciting time, and thank you for sharing not just your beautiful photos but heartfelt words!  -xoxo
