Your wedding dress is one of the most important components of a wedding, but being able to get your dream gown without breaking the bank sometimes seems impossible — or is it? Recently opened in Las Vegas in November 2015, Brilliant Bridal carries all the gorgeous designer wedding gowns you could hope for at 30% to 80% off of the retail price. In addition, they were voted The Knot Best of Weddings 2016 and the WeddingWire Couple’s Choice Award 2016 to ensure brides also receive a first-class experience!
We at Bridal Spectacular wanted to get a closer look at Brilliant Bridal’s services, so we teamed up with the boutique’s Social Media Manager, Blake Mills to provide brides with a sneak-peek.
Bridal Spectacular: What about Brilliant Bridal would you like to highlight to brides?
Blake: Brilliant Bridal specializes in selling designer overstock and closeout wedding gowns “off-the-rack”. We carry dresses from the designers you know, love and want to wear on your wedding day at prices that are always 30% to 80% off retail. Because all of our wedding dresses are sold off-the-rack with no ordering and no long waiting period you can take your dress home the same day you find it.
Bridal Spectacular: What is the first step a bride-to-be should take when she’s looking for her perfect wedding gown?
Blake: The first thing that a bride-to-be should take when she’s looking for her perfect wedding gown is to consider how much money she wants to spend on her gown. Planning a budget may not be the most glamorous or fun part of the shopping process, but it is a necessity! Being a bride is almost like being in a dream, where everything seems possible – until you look at the price tag! It is very easy to fall in love with a dress that is way out of your budget! If you think about how much you want to spend before stepping into our store, your stylist will be able to send you home with you dream gown (within budget!) The beautiful thing about Brilliant Bridal is that our dresses are always discounted off of the retail price, so you may be able to find your dream dress for even less at our boutique!
Bridal Spectacular: How do you help a bride select her accessories to create her dream wedding look?
Blake: Our boutique carries a variety of gorgeous veils, belts, hairpieces and jewelry to help achieve the bride’s dream wedding look! As you know, we love helping our brides save money! All of our accessories are on trend and affordable. You can’t beat that! After the bride is feeling like her gown is ‘the one’, we will jack her up just like they do on Say Yes to the Dress! Veil, belt, earrings – voila!
Bridal Spectacular: Once the bride has selected her wedding gown, how to you help her coordinate her look with the groom and bridesmaids?
Blake: We like to tell our brides that her wedding gown is the cornerstone of the bridal party’s overall style. Typically our brides are shopping with us prior to selecting the groom’s tuxedo or bridal party dresses. If the bride’s gown has a long train, full of intricate beading and very dramatic – she’ll want her bridesmaids to be just as glam! If the bride’s gown is more classic and simple – she’ll want to make sure her bridesmaid’s dresses don’t outshine her gown!
Bridal Spectacular: What are the current trends you’ve been seeing with wedding gowns, colors and accessories?
Blake: A few trends that we’re into right now are delicate illusion necklines with intricate beading and lace work, detachable trains and high necklines! As far as accessory trends, we’re really into beaded capes or cathedral veils – a little old school but they’re so glam!
Bridal Spectacular: Is there anything else you would like to add or share?
Blake: We are really looking forward to being in the Las Vegas market and we can’t wait to meet all of our brides! Also, be sure to follow us on Instagram at @brilliantbridal to see new inventory and awesome wedding inspo!
