Open for nine years, Bridal Gallery prides itself in its customer service, and works to give the brides of Sioux Falls a bridal shopping experience they will enjoy and cherish for years to come!
We asked the staff of Bridal Gallery all about their Sioux Falls bridal shop and what’s currently trending in the South Dakota bridal market:
What wedding dress trends are hot right now in your area?
We are seeing a lot of themed weddings with the most popular being the rustic/vintage-chic styled events. With that, our brides love the cafe, peony, moscato, and harvest color-schemed dresses — color is huge right now!
What’s the number one thing your brides are asking for?
Our brides are wanting and loving the illusion halter neckline gowns! The more unique, the better!
How do you make the bride’s experience memorable?
At the Bridal Gallery, we strive to have everything that our brides may need for their wedding day: bridal gowns, attendant dresses, special occasion dress, flower girl dresses, mother’s dresses, tux rentals, accessories, and an in-house seamstress.
We pride ourselves on customer service at the Bridal Gallery! Our BG brides can expect our consultants to know every detail of every bridal gown in our inventory!
Further, our brides are the number 1 priority! Every single bride is welcomed by one of our amazing bridal consultants, given a layout overview of the store and our bridal collections, then escorted to a separate seating area for the bride-to-be and her group to be comfortable throughout the appointment. We want our brides to have a connection and a trust with their bridal consultant from day one until their big day arrives.
What’s the most surprising request you’ve ever gotten from a bride?
We loved helping one of our brides incorporate her Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle (TMNT) theme into her bridal gown! She added bold color to her dress and themed her attendants’ attire with the TMNT color scheme as well!
What’s your favorite wedding story from one of your brides?
One of our brides was diagnosed with breast cancer and the day before undergoing surgery, she chose to go dress shopping and had no intention of buying a gown until post surgery to accommodate differences in her body. After working with one of our consultants for a couple hours, the bride-to-be and her entire group fell in love with Stella York 6042. She decided to order the Stella York gown that day and went into her surgery feeling beautiful with a big check off the wedding planning list. Post surgery and after the dress arrived, she tried it tried it on and it still fit beautifully. She lit up and looked absolutely stunning! She has been an absolute delight to work with and we are honored to be a part of her wedding journey!
What is the best advice you would give a bride as she is shopping for her wedding gown?
Try on every silhouette with an open mind and hone in on your favorite fit from there! Trusting your consultant and a small group of your closest family or friends will keep your experience stress free!
