A Look Back at 2018.

As 2018 comes to a close, we look back on some of the best moments of the year. We wish we could showcase each and every bride to you, but here’s a snapshot of some of the brides who have entrusted to us their most important gown they will ever wear.

As we come to a close of another year, I want to say a big thank you. Thank you to our brides, entourages + mothers that we have gotten the privilege of meeting and working with. We appreciate you. We love that you shop at our store, share the word about the store and engage with us on social media.

To other wedding vendors who tell their brides about us, thank you! We sure do appreciate all the love.

This year has not been without difficulties.. It’s been a year of growth and refinement, of challenges and new opportunities. Of learning to do things better and more efficient.

I cannot wait to see what 2019 will bring to our Once Upon A Time Weddings family!

Thank you to all the customers who believed in us and shopped with us.

Thank you to all those who shared our store with their friends, family, co-workers.

We love you all and appreciate you.

The other thing we’re excited to share with you is that we are hosting a trunk show from now until January 8th.

What is a trunk show?

It’s where a designer, in this case, two designers, send us their sample gowns for us to showcase and use in the store for a limited time. This allows us to see what gowns will work in our location, and allows our brides to have first access to these gowns before they have even shipped to stores.

On Growth | Where OUTW is Headed.

Over a year and a half ago, I wrote a blog with the same title. We were anticipating our new move to the store. We were busting out of our old space and needed to expand.

And here we are a year and a half later and we continue to grow.

And we’re so, so thankful for that. We’re extremely thankful for all of our customers who shop with us, tell their friends about us, and share our posts on social media.

We’ve had several staff meetings over the last few months digging into what’s next for Once Upon A Time Weddings and really looking at what we do well and what we need to work on. Because in the business world, growth can be a double edge sword.

We want to keep growing to serve more and more brides. But we also want to make sure that the brides that we have are served well.

So, first things first. We are looking for another part time bridal stylist for the store. We are not necessarily looking for someone with experience in bridal. We are looking for someone who is hard working, open to learning, passionate about fashion and available Saturdays and weekday evenings.

Secondly, we have some really exciting events happening at the store in the next few months. We did a Facebook live today explaining them. Click here to watch it.

And we have some other big news that we are working on. So be sure to follow along on our instagram + Facebook pages for more information.
