Returning to Our Roots..

If you’ve been hanging around Once Upon A Time Weddings for a bit now, you’ll know we’ve undergone a few changes.  We’ve made the decision to stop carrying bridesmaids & mother’s gowns.  We’ve changed up our store hours & the way we do bridal appointments.  It’s all part of our strategic plan to become the experts at bridal.  Sometimes you have to prune away healthy layers to get to the best part of the tree. 

When we started this business over four years ago we began with the hope of helping brides and becoming the best in bridal.  We began as wedding planners.  Somewhere along the way we lost sight of that and we added gifts, bridesmaids, mothers, tuxedos, graduation, special occasion gowns & more.  While we have genuinely loved these avenues {well most of them anyways J} we have decided it’s time to get back to our roots.  It’s time to get back to the basics.  Sometimes as a business you can do a whole bunch of stuff, but never really do any of it well.  We don’t want to be the one stop shop, the box store feel.  We believe brides buy from us because not only do they love the gown, but they love the feeling that they get meeting us, entering our store.  It feels like home.

We’re not the store for every bride.  We don’t want to be.  But if you’re looking for a different approach to bridal, then you’ll find it at Once Upon A Time Weddings.  If you’re looking for the experts in all things bridal, then you’ll love our expertise.   If you want an experience, not just a gown, then you need to check us out.

With these changes in mind and looking forward we’ll be offering wedding planning services again.  This is where I started the business.  I helped couples plan their weddings & I loved seeing it to completion.  We’ve created a few different options because we know no two weddings are the same.  Please be aware that due to the nature of coordination wedding planning & operating a bridal store, there were only be a select number of weddings we can take on each season.  Be sure to book early to save your date!

We so appreciate our customer’s feedback as we embrace these changes.  Our goal is to serve you and to make your wedding planning a bit easier & a lot more fun.  If you would like more information please visit  Feel free to call me at 519.319.9441 or 519.245.7997 or shoot me an email at
