What’s new for prom season, and Sew Much More!
As you may know here at Brides & Beyond we care as much as you about your special day and we work very hard, day in + day out, to bring you quality formalwear coupled with an amazing experience. With the expansion and huge success of our NEW bridesmaids space this Summer (which was formally our prom shop in the back of the store) we have a few changes that need to take place here over the next few months. You’re probably thinking, where’s prom going to be located? Well, beginning October 9th our prom inventory will be centrally located within the St. Henry shop (where the bridesmaids used to be) which can be accessible using the main entrance. Here’s a little secret, we’ll be having a HUGE SALE too! We will have over 250 beautiful prom + pageant dresses that will follow the same store hours and not require an appointment to shop. Keep an eye out on our @bridesbeyondprom Instagram + @bridesbeyondohio Facebook pages to see available sizes and styles. Our Sample Studio which is located in Celina will carry a small collection of prom, but will continue to cater to the “under $1000” bride.
In keeping with our mission while also delivering a top notch retail experience, we are headed back to our roots when it comes to in-house alterations. Becoming a seamstress is a dying art, so we want our brides to know how fortunate we are + they are to have a highly-skilled on-site seamstress!
Tara Dorsten of Sew Much More has been someone you have come to know and love while having alterations at Brides & Beyond for the last 6 years. She came to us in 2012 after managing the alterations department at David’s Bridal in Cincinnati (Kenwood). Not only is she meticulous, she has a friendly and outgoing personality to pair with her sewing skills. In January of 2019 our other longtime seamstress Lois Kremer will be “semi-retiring” and only offering limited alterations from her home in Fort Recovery. So, if Tara gets too busy, she’ll send you on to Lois!
We, along with Tara, have decided that keeping alterations for bridal, bridesmaids, and prom exclusively for customers of Brides & Beyond and The Sample Studio is in line with our mission, and will allow her to continue to run her successful + flexible business, Sew Much More, from the St. Henry Brides & Beyond Flagship store. Tara is a hard-working wife, and mom of two whom we have been blessed to have a wonderful working relationship with. With Tara you have the option to book online, or call the alterations department at 419-763-1034 and leave a message.
Your positive experience is something that our entire staff work very hard to create every single day. We have put much thought into the decision to revert back to exclusive alterations so that we can continue to assist OUR brides from start to finish, while adding additional “personal” touches along the way! We are excited about reconnecting the alterations department with our sales department to bring our customers a seamless + stress-free shopping experience with added convenience and peace of mind.
