First Official Day of Business is Today!

What an exciting Grand Opening event we had this past Sunday! The response has been amazing! We had several people even stop by and take a peek while we were cleaning everything up yesterday.

We are excited to be officially opening our doors to the public today! Please stop by and say "Hi"!

Have you heard the buzzzzz?

Yes, the buzz is out! The Brides a la mode grand opening is on June 28 and, thanks to our friends at WSBT and the South Bend Tribune' s Heidi Prescott, the buzz is growing!

Founders Cathy Dietz, Jill Kuharic and Kathy Strukel were interviewed by WSBT's Cari Peugeot on Saturday morning and were interviewed for an article in Heidi Prescott's "Market Basket" column in Sunday's South Bend Tribune.

The grand opening of Brides a la mode on June 28 is not going to be your typical grand opening event. Our faux wedding reception will be a true spectacle - complete with a gazebo and other fabulous decor from Merry Me!, a candy buffet from Ashley Troyer Events, food and drinks from some of the area's premier caterers, music from a professional DJ and even brides and bridesmaids dressed up and mingling with our guests.

If you can't join us, be sure to follow our blog in the days and weeks to come for grand opening details and photos from Zeta-Alpha Studio, Monica Z Photography and OMG Photography!

Grand Opening Sneak Peek

This Tuesday, following the monthly Women Business Owners (WBOM) meeting, we hosted a "Sneak Peek" of Brides a la mode for WBOM members. We are excited to welcome WBOM member Wendy Taddeucci of Simply Organized, LLC as a preferred vendor. Wendy is excited to be able to share organizing tips with brides and help new couples set up an organized household! Look for a great seminar from Wendy in the months to come!

We were also thrilled that WBOM member and uber-gorgeous Hope Nutting has graciously agreed to model one of our gowns during the grand opening. Here's a sneak peek of Hope -- can you imagine how gorgeous she'll look when she gets her hair done & all made up by our preferred vendors? Can't wait!

Has Brides a la mode gone to the dogs?

Nah, its just co-founder, Kathy Strukel's doggie (and perhaps ala mode mascot?), Sophie, getting used to mom's new digs!
