Happy Fathers Day!

Wishing all the Fathers an awesome Dad's Day!  
We appreciate all the Dad's who attend appointments in store and who are in our thoughts and conversations in the shops.  Here is the dad of our Ava and Classy Team... hand print painting, enjoying Mexican favs, splashpad tan lines and other family shenanigans!

Zach keeps our bridal company on track, legally organized, counts the beans and builds cool stuff for our brides wedding day decor!  Zach's talents are endless.  🛠

 Dad's are the Best! Whether you hold your dad in your heart or with hugs, What is one of your fav moments with your dad?

One of mine was our Father Daughter Dance on my wedding day!  We were shamefully nervous! 😆 Lol  We joked the whole way thru the song.  He never wore tuxedos but looked so happy, proud of me and handsome.  😍  He had a lot of love for his family, his country and Dr. Pepper. 😉

Happy Father's Day!
♡, Sue

What are we up to in the Alterations Department?

Our gorgeous brides have us busy busy busy this time of year pumping out amazing designs and creativity in the Alterations Department! Thank goodness for our team of professional tailors who each have their background and specialty.  LOVE working with brides who push our creativity to the max with the requests you ladies are sending our way.

No two brides are EVER alike at Ava's Bridal Couture and Classy Concepts Bridal Boutique! That's what makes this part of our job so exciting and rewarding. One of the biggest requests we are seeing is sleeves.  Not just full length sleeves, but all sorts of styles that are creative and fun to transform a strapless dress into a masterpiece.

One of the biggest questions we get asked in store is "When should I begin my alterations?"
If you are a plan ahead gal like me, start them when you have reached your goal weight and do not plan to fluctuate -OR- 3 months before your need by date (which ever comes first).

3 months ahead give…

Beat Leukemia Ball - Omni Hotel Fort Worth

Very special night gettin' fancy with good friends and family!  The Beat Leukemia Ball is an event that raises money for leukemia research through Leukemia Texas, an organization that raises funds to support families who have been impacted by leukemia.  Honored to enjoy an elegant evening at the table of Mr and Mrs Heath.    One of the coolest parts of the program was the patient speaker, Katie.  She is 13 years old and has battled her 2nd round with leukemia .  Leukemia Texas was there for financial and emotional support when She began her treatment.  She completed a bone marrow transplant, but soon after the cancer was back.  The 2nd diagnosis being even harder than the first, Katie's parents decided to try a new type of treatment since the transplant was unsuccessful the first time.  Katie gave positive words along side her family - younger brother Maverick, Dad and Mom had special words to say.   How would she describe herself in one word?  "Optimistic".  That sh…

Happy Mother's Day Wifey's!

One of the oh so many things I love about bridal shop happenings... the meaningful relationships.
We meet a bride, she buys her wedding dress... the end, right?

I sure hope not!

Over the past 12 years in business, I have met some of the most amazing men and women who were once customers at some point in time.  They definitely bought more than "just a dress" or "just a service".  We make so many memories together, form a relationship and that relationship is so special!  No two customers are ever alike.

You would think after 12 years it would get old. 
Would it be the same day after day?  Year after year? 
Same old stories, same old song and dance?
Thankfully for me, it doesn't!

Today's blog, I am thinking of all of our past brides who became a wifey after saying "I Do". 
Perhaps the journey as a wife means you want to become a mom.

Maybe you have decided you want a family with kiddos... 
Maybe you are marrying into a family with children...
Maybe you held a…
