Wedding Shoppe Inc.
Matt and I have been dating since 2008 and he popped the question on our spring trip to San Francisco. We're pretty outdoorsy, so on a hike we stopped on a cliff overlooking the San Franscio Bay, the Golden Gate Bridge and the Pacific Ocean. We were chatting about how wonderful the trip had been (this was at the end of it) he said he could think of one thing that would make it more memorable. Completely to my surprise, he then got down on one knee and with that gorgeous backdrop asked me to marry him. (I'm getting all giddy again just writing this to you!)
In keeping with our loves of travel and the outdoors, we've decided to a destination wedding to Puerto Vallarta with the wedding day falling on April 1 (no joke!). We're going to a small all-inclusive resort called Playa Fiesta. We've been to a wedding there before and HIGHLY recommend it to anyone planning a destination wedding. We will have about 60 of our family and friends there along with the pastor from the church I grew up in performing a traditional ceremony.
Destination weddings are the way to go! We hardly have to do any planning and so far the most "stressful" part has been picking the green color of my shoes (from The Wedding Shoppe!) to match our invitation. Bright apple/lime green and aqua are the main colors we're using.

I am proud to say that I purchased everything I needed for my wedding from The Wedding Shoppe! I had an amazing experience buying my gown which made me excited to try all the other departments as well. My bridesmaids loved the selection of dresses for them and the consultants worked with my entire party to find a dress that complimented all their different body types. The tuxedo department spent time with my fiancé and I comparing colors and coat styles and helping us coordinate the wedding gown, bridesmaid dresses, and all other accents together. From the day I first stepped into the Shoppe to the day I picked up my perfectly fitted gown at the Alterations house The Wedding Shoppe went above and beyond any quality and customer service expectation I had. We received nothing but compliments on our wedding attire and accessories and I will continue to recommend your Shoppe to everyone I know. Thank you!

This is by far the best place around to get your bridal gown and bridal party dresses! They are so wonderful, helpful, organized and accommodating! I bought my bridal gown, 12 bridesmaids dress, flower girl dress, etc all from here and they were on top of it the entire time! Thank you so much for all you did making my shopping so easy and enjoyable!

Dear Wedding Shoppe,
Years ago Bria & Anne used to play dress up then finally last year they got to do the real thing for their junior prom. With 2 moms in tow we headed to the Wedding Shoppe where we had a wonderful experience! The girls had lots of dresses to choose from and they each found exactly the right ones. It was like both dresses were made for our daughters. When they put them on it was magical and we all knew it. This year we made the same trek down to the Wedding Shoppe. Sure enough, we found two perfect dresses for their senior prom. We moms had a great time with our daughters laughing at the wrong styles and colors and helping our daughters choose their magical dresses.
Thanks Wedding Shoppe for making both proms extra special and for giving us some fun mother - daughter time!
Cathy Storey & Lonnie Johnson
