Phoenix Bridal Shop- La Bella Bridal
Shopping for my own wedding dress has been a challenge. Being in the industry, I have a pretty distinct picture of what I wanted for a wedding dress. I looked high and low for my perfect wedding dress but what I was picturing wasn't appearing even with exhaustive Pinterest and Google searches. During my hunt for my own wedding dress, I went to La Bella Bridal Shop in Mesa several times. Every time, Amber and her team of sweet, professional consultants helped me at every turn. While I didn't get my dress there, they gave me such great service and I so appreciate that as a wedding professional myself! I highly recommend visiting La Bella. They have an amazing selection of dresses at all budget points and Amber and her team will help you through the whole process, suggesting things and helping you without pressuring you to spend more. I recently went to their shop and took some updated photos of her gorgeous shop and all of her beautiful dresses, as well as did a short interview with her.
Q: How did your shop get started? Why did you start it?
A: I started by working with a family member that is a wedding planner, I fell in love with the fashion aspect and had a dream of a bridal boutique that serviced the everyday bride. I looked around the valley and had some great experiences and some not so great. But I noticed that the great experience were often meet with a equally large price tag. So I wanted to create that boutique feel for the everyday bride.
Q: Did you imagine you'd own a dress shop when you were younger?
A: I always loved fashion and I still have renderings of my own designs from when I was young, I thought maybe I would be a designer. I never thought I would own my own boutique!
Q: What is your favorite part of owning a dress shop?
A: My favorite part is a toss-up. I love the moment when the bride realizes this is the gown she will be walking down the aisle in and gets that happy tear and I also love choosing the gowns for the upcoming season.
Q: How is your shop different from other dress shops?
A: We are different in that we provide excellent customer service with a great price. I am counsels when I choose gowns of their price. We also consider the entire look of the gown form the undergarments to the veil. Also it is a very family feel and intimate setting.
Q: What's on the horizon for La Bella in the next year or so?
A: We just recently added a new designer, David Tutera, so I am very excited to be learning more about his gowns and seeing them in our boutique. This fall we will be having an allure trunk show, in the winter we will be the exclusive gown vender for the Mesa Wedding walk and showing off our gowns on the run way in January.
Q: What are your favorite upcoming trends?
A: I am still loving all of the creative low and dramatic back lines, But I am also loving the nude look and the texture. Also that ball gowns are coming back every girl wants to feel like a princess.
