There is nothing like saving the date and gathering your girls together to try on dresses. Putting on that first gown makes everything so ‘real’. All the planning and booking for the future seems so far away. It’s hard to even imagine holding the hand of your fiancé on the day of the wedding because it seems so far away. However, touching and feeling that perfect dress is something that you can experience right now. Tammy Davies is the owner of Devotion Bridal Lounge in Prince Albert and she is very excited to work with you to find that perfect gown.
Sask Ever After: What is your role in the wedding day?
Devotion Bridal Lounge: Devotion Bridal Lounge is a comfortable, cozy and always sparkling bridal boutique featuring designer wedding gowns, bridesmaid dresses and accessories including the Sparkle Collection by Hillberg and Berk.
SEA: What is your favorite part of the wedding day?
DBL: My favourite part of a bride’s journey is getting to be a part of that moment when she finds “the one”. It makes our hearts happy to have a bride surrounded by her friends and family say “yes!” to the dress she’ll become a wife in. It’s a special moment that a bride will always remember!
SEA: What inspired you to be in the wedding industry?
DBL: I’ve always loved fashion and really wanted to offer a unique and memorable experience for each bride. That’s why we offer private Champagne Appointments where the bride and her guests are pampered in beautiful surroundings with great food and of course, a champagne toast!
SEA: What advice would you give to a bride when choosing a vendor in your field for her wedding?
DBL: I recommend creating a Pinterest board with dresses that you love (this will also come in handy during your appointment). Research the dress designers online to locate local vendors and then give them a call! It’s also helpful to go to the retailer’s website or Facebook page to gather information about their designers, timeframes, FAQ’s and policies.
Educate future brides on why your business is necessary to their wedding day. Bridal dress shopping can be overwhelming – we totally get it! At Devotion Bridal Lounge, our passion is helping each bride find her gown in a fun, supportive environment so she can feel like her best self on her wedding day. We want you to look amazing! We will guide you through the dress shopping experience to ensure that everything is perfect for your big day!
SEA: Describe your favorite wedding that you had a role in. What made the event memorable for you as their vendor?
DBL: One of my most memorable moments was when a bride came into the boutique on a Tuesday looking for a dress for her wedding that Saturday. She had ordered a dress online and it was a disaster! She was so upset and thought her wedding day was going to be ruined. We had a gorgeous gown that fit her perfectly and was just what she wanted! She took the dress home with her and we both knew she had someone special looking over her that day!
SEA: Wedding day trends that you are hoping for this year or are seeing already in your field?
DBL: We’re seeing lots of brides looking for low backs, beautiful lace back details and of course, color! Ivory lace over moscato or ivory over peony – it’s all beautiful! These colors also look amazing with the matte sequin bridesmaid dresses we carry by Sorella Vita.
SEA: Anything else you’d like to share?
DBL: At Devotion Bridal Lounge, our goal is to provide each bride with a one of a kind experience. Whether a traditional appointment or a private Champagne Appointment where you’re greeted with a glass of champagne and a personalized chalkboard, all of our brides are so important to us! We know it’s a big day and a big decision, so every bride will have a one-on-one appointment in our lovely boutique. It’s the perfect place to find your dream dress!
