You Oughta Know: Ivory Bridal
Ivory Bridal is a full-service bridal salon in Atlanta, owned and operated by the lovely Mesita Partridge.
The wife, mother, fashionista considers herself a serious lover of love and made the decision to cater her shop to curvy clientele for personal reasons.
I realized a huge void in the bridal market here in Atlanta.
There was not a pretty place where curvy brides could shop for their wedding dress. I also had a few occasions where I got brides who were larger than a size 20.
It brought back memories of my wedding dress shopping experience when I didn’t have anything for them to try on.
It was that single act of empathy that motivated Mesita to transform her already-thriving boutique into one that takes a lot of the stress and suffering out of the curvy bride’s preparations.
In addition to having a wide assortment of gorgeous gowns, Ivory Bridal can lend their expertise to the planning aspect of the event as well. Mesita knows that a bride can’t feel fabulous if saddled by insurmountable stress.
My customers are my everything. More than anything else, I care about helping them feel absolutely stunning on their wedding day.
And it’s that care that shows in the services they provide. From the moment they enter the store, plus size brides can expect to be pampered beyond their wildest dreams. Customers are treated like oldest and dearest friends, and the small touches they provide makes a situation normally met with trepidation one that can flow easily and effortlessly.
Shopping for a dress can be a stressful experience, but at Ivory Bridal it is a fun & memorable experience.
We offer coffee and sparkly beverages while they shop.
We take the time to get to know them and learn more about how they got engaged along with the vision for their big day. Our glam collection of weddings gowns will make every curvy bride say yes!
