At Always Elegant Bridal, we believe that everyone is beautiful and worthy of love. We aim to be not just inclusive, but affirming of diversity. We are all about love stories, and we know that all of you bring your own story of identity into your wedding planning and search for the perfect attire that expresses who you are.
My stylists and I aspire to be allies to every bride no matter what unique body type, background, culture, gender, and sexuality you identify with. We are excited to get to know you to the extent you are comfortable with. No matter who you are, we would consider it an honor to be part of the story that you look back on someday when you reflect on your wedding attire, whether that be a dress, jumpsuit, tuxedo, accessory, or all of the above.
Do you know about our “Purchase with a Purpose” program? We are proud that with every yes, our clients have the power to make a difference. This month, we are offering a 🌈fruit-loops scented🌈Pride Candle to raise funds for The Trevor Project. This fundraiser was voted on by the AE family in our Instagram story. This is all possible because of you, and we are so grateful for your involvement.
Don’t need a candle but still want to make a difference? We will ask if you'd like to round up at the time of checking out and we will match your donation!
Because we want to reach out to all of our followers and maybe you can’t make it in to shop, you can donate right here on Instagram! Just click on this post or visit the donation button in our bio.
Lets stand together to celebrate love and each other!
💕Love is everything. I always encourage ones around me to love with all they have. It will make a difference if you allow to plus love always win! Love yourself, love someone, love others, love something, and love life!
