Everyone has a story worth sharing. At Little White Dress Bridal Shop, YOUR story is what we care about most. We look forward to listening to anything you’d like to share – not only about what is most important to you for your wedding dress, but also about your fiance, your family and your life.
It is our greatest joy to help you feel most like yourself (being the most amazing woman in love that you are!), and to help you feel your most special and beautiful on your wedding day. We hope you will visit our shop, and that we will have this opportunity to get to know you and your unique story.
Until then, here is just a brief summary of my story. It’s for those of you who may be interested in how Little White Dress Bridal Shop in Colorado came to be, and therefore, what our fundamental business values are.
I was born in Ft. Collins, Colorado and have lived in Colorado for nearly all of my life. I have always been a true romantic at heart, even after the end of my first marriage in my 20’s. I idolized and admired happy couples, and fantasized about my own happy marriage some day. That “some day” took a long time – 18 years as a single parent of the most amazing son and daughter in the whole world, and many happy and sad times in the search for true love. Through it all, I loved everything about weddings and wedding dresses. I learned about all the wedding gown designers, styles, and fabrics. I invited myself to shop with friends for their wedding dresses, and won prizes at friends’ weddings for being the most excited and happy guest.
Between jobs about 15 years ago, back when “help wanted” ads were in the newspaper, I saw a job posting in the Boulder Daily Camera for an in-house wedding coordinator at the Hotel Boulderado. I believe that was the first moment when I realized I would LOVE to work in the bridal industry. As a single parent, I needed to stay in my legal/real estate profession to make as much income as possible, but oh, how wonderful I thought it would be to plan weddings and help brides! My best friend remembers getting a call from me about 10 years ago, excitedly announcing that I had figured out what we were going to do – open a bridal shop! It didn’t happen then, but thanks to finally meeting the most wonderful man in 2005, and finally planning and having my own wedding with him in 2006 (at the Hotel Boulderado!), building the bridal shop of my dreams became a reality. Dreams Come True, Inc., dba Little White Dress Bridal Shop was incorporated with the Colorado Secretary of State in April 2007, we signed the lease for our first location in Castle Rock in October 2007, and we opened our doors to our first brides on January 5, 2008. I sold a wedding dress to a bride from Ft. Collins that very first day we were open. I remember calling my husband at the end of the day, absolutely crying with happiness.
After three years in Castle Rock, we moved the shop to the Highlands neighborhood in Denver. Here we are, in our fourth year in our new location in Denver, and in our seventh year in business!
Here’s what I love most:
I love helping women feel beautiful, I love giving them a beautiful and fun place to find the most important dress they will ever purchase, I love giving my staff a great place to work, I love being a locally owned and operated business, and I love the opportunity each and every day to be the best that I can be. I love being involved with the Colorado bridal industry, I love that I have worked very hard and have created something that I am proud of. I love meeting some of the most amazing women/brides I have ever met in my entire life, I love all these gorgeous wedding dresses around me every day, and I love getting goose bumps when a bride is in my shop, in the most amazing/perfect dress for her, and she looks and feels like a million bucks!
My story, who I am, what I care about, and what I love, has all come together to make Little White Dress Bridal Shop what it is. I hope you feel welcome here, I hope you feel respected and heard, I hope you have fun, and I hope you thoroughly enjoy finding your very own, hands-down, without-a-doubt, heaven must have sent an angel, I don’t want to take it off, absolutely amazing wedding dress at Little White Dress Bridal Shop!
