A “few” years back when I was getting married, I had a dream of a certain style wedding dress. To this day I really think I would have looked incredible in it! Unfortunately my dream dress and my real budget were two very different things. The dress I ended up with was simple and elegant, and I did like it a lot… but it was exhausting trying to find a beautiful, modest, inexpensive dress!
I could walk into any really classy wedding dress shop and find a dress I liked, but could not afford. And the ones I could afford made me want to cry. How I wished that somehow I would win some prize and someone would announce “Go ahead, you may buy any dress in the store.”
The other day a reader sent in a comment about a little home-based shop in American Fork with a good selection of wedding gowns all priced under $450. www.ElizabethCoopersBoutique.com. You can imagine I looked it up! The dresses looked adorable, with ranges from classic to trendy, formal to fun. It was a breathe of fresh air to know there is a place where you really can get any dress you want!
I wrote to the owner and this is her response…
“We are a family run business based out of American Fork, Utah. With two daughters already married we have been blown away at wedding gown prices! We started this boutique with the intent to offer beautiful wedding gowns for a fraction of the price. We don’t think its fair how much weddings cost these days. You can go to a big name bridal shop and spend thousands on your wedding gown, or you can come here, and save thousands for an equally gorgeous gown.
Many people ask us, “How do you do it? What’s the catch?” There isn’t a catch. The price you see is the price you pay (plus sales tax) for a quality wedding gown that you will look gorgeous in. We have a manufacturer we get our gowns from just like any other shop, the difference is, we operate out of our home, don’t hire outside employees and don’t keep a large inventory in stock at one time, thus allowing us to keep our prices low.
Call us, schedule an appointment and come see our beautiful gowns for yourself. You won’t be disappointed.”
Now who knows of any other little shops that make all our wedding dress dreams come true?
