Ivory Bridal Boutique is getting into the plus size bridal business. Starting December 1, 2015, if you’re a plus size diva getting married, Ivory Bridal Boutique will be at your service. Although the full-service bridal salon has been in business for three years, the decision to go strictly Plus is a personal one. We caught up with Mesita, the owner of Ivory Bridal to get the details of this transition.
DailyVenusDiva.com: What made you want to transition to a plus size boutique?
Mesita Partridge: I have always carried larger sample sizes because of my experience when I got married back in 2009. All of the stores had samples sizes in a 10, and there were beautiful gowns hanging on the rack that I wanted to try on! I was saddened when I couldn’t pull them over my hips. So when I placed my first stock order for my store I ordered samples in smaller sizes but then I added in sizes that ranged from 14-20. About a year ago I realized a huge void in the bridal market here in Atlanta. There was not a pretty place where curvy brides could shop for their wedding dress. I also had a few occasions where I got brides who were larger than a size 20. It bought back memories of my wedding dress shopping experience when I didn’t have anything for them to try on. At that point I knew it was time to completely transition to plus size. We will now carry sizes 12-28. One of our designers actually allows us to order up to a size 40.
DailyVenusDiva.com: Which designers will you carry?
Mesita Partridge: Our opulent collection of wedding gowns will include designers such as Wtoo by Watters, Kitty Chen, Lu Raquel, Sydney’s Closet, and our exclusive Ivory Bridal Signature Collection. We also offer custom designed wedding gowns from our fabulous design team.
DailyVenusDiva.com: What type of experience can plus size brides expect?
Mesita Partridge: At Ivory Bridal, we celebrate curves! Our brides can expect to be pampered from the moment they walk in the door. We treat every customer like our best friend. Shopping for a dress can be a stressful experience, but at Ivory Bridal it is a fun & memorable experience. We offer coffee and sparkly beverages while they shop. We take the time to get to know them and learn more about how they got engaged along with the vision for their big day. Our glam collection of weddings gowns will make every curvy bride say yes!
