About Megan About 12 years ago I did the craziest thing! I left NYC, a place I desperately loved, left the fashion industry, a place I always dreamed I’d worked and moved back to my hometown to purchase a 50 year old bridal shop. I knew nothing about the wedding industry – just how to make a gown, fit a gown, what made one work better than another, and what was just a horrible idea. With a background in all sorts of retail and a solid education in fashion design and construction, I took a leap and began transforming the Wedding Embassy into the shop it is today!
About W.E. Since 1962, the Wedding Embassy has been providing, brides, bridesmaids, their grooms, guys, friends and family with garments and alterations. Since purchasing the shop it has continuously evolved to accommodate the changing expectations and desires of our Brides. Over the past 12 years, we’ve expanded our collection of designers, the number and variety of bridal gowns we sample, we’ve streamlined our bridesmaids collections, and introduced tuxedo and suit rentals more tailored to the modern groom. Through it all we’ve kept value in mind – we keep our price points attainable and always keep an eye on the quality of our garments.
Visiting W.E. While product is important, your experience is key! WE strive to provide our brides with a unique, warm, and comfortable shopping experience. WE love when brides experience our showroom for the very first time. It doesn’t look like much but walking in the front door defies expectations – the white-washed factory makes everyone smile! Over the last 6 years we’ve worked to create a very special bridal experience – our Specialty Appointments only get more popular. We’ve extended our appointment times, created spacious fitting rooms, separated our alterations areas, and updated our software and event offerings... all in the effort to give our brides a comfortable, confident experience!
Our staff As we've grown, our staff has grown. Our shopping appointments are hosted by a great team of Embassadors. They are knowledgeable, easy to work with, and always ready to help you find the ONE! We are laid back and willing to work with our brides, happy to create a custom item or sell a gown right off the rack if necessity dictates. We are open and honest, no pressure with our pitch, and offer beautiful gowns!
Our promise As look forward to the next dozen years, we promise to remain committed to our brides, their hopes and dreams and ever-changing trends! We welcome future #WeBrides and look forward to finding more dream dresses. WE invite you to visit us, to see what WE have to offer – WE can’t wait to shop with you!
