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.

    I visited this salon and my experience was nothing like the write up. The sales associate was very nice and polite when I visited one Saturday afternoon with my mother and grandmother. My options where very limited in size, style and price and I was only allowed to try on 3 dresses. I feel we weren’t given the service we would have received if my appointment had been at 11AM vs my scheduled time of 3PM. After trying on my 3 dresses (there was only one other customer in the store and it was almost closing time) it was suggested by the sales associate that I come back one day during the week. Why should I… nothing happened during that initial visit that sent me over the moon or made me want to take a day off work drive 5 hours round trip to go back to Ivory Bridal and continue looking for “The One”.

    This sounds amazing. I wish something like this would have been available when I was shopping for my gown in 2002!
