Springfield, VA (PRWEB) July 15, 2010
Alfred Angelo, the world’s leading maker of wedding gowns and bridesmaid dresses, will celebrate the grand opening of their newest Virginia signature store with a two-day Grand Opening Weekend event, beginning Saturday, July 17th. The in-store events will be held from 9 am until 9 pm Saturday, July 17th, and 12 pm until 5 pm Sunday, July 18th at the Springfield boutique, located at 6699 Frontier Dr., Springfield, VA 22150.
“We are excited to bring our beautiful collection of dresses and longstanding tradition of excellence to our second location in Virginia,” said Denise Wash, Vice President of Marketing for Alfred Angelo. “Alfred Angelo believes that the one-to-one connection between a bride and her bridal specialist, is irreplaceable. The Alfred Angelo consultant is dedicated to the bride and will walk her through the process of finding ‘THE’ dress. Alfred Angelo makes gowns to the bride’s specifications, and we take pride that the bride will be the only person to ever try on or wear her gown.”
The grand opening events will kick off with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 9 am on Saturday, July 17th with a full day focused on the bride! Throughout the day, brides will enjoy wedding and style tips from recommended vendors, including complimentary hair consultations, wedding day photography, catering and cake sampling, and tuxedo recommendations by JoS. A Bank.
Brides who purchase their dresses on grand-opening day will receive $50-$300 off their gown, as well as a chance to win a $250 gift certificate from Alfred Angelo’s new national jewelry partner, Amoro.
Every bride gets a gift bag, and brides who register at the in-store kiosk Saturday will be entered to win a grand door prize of goodies to pamper the bride.
Sunday, July 18th is all about bridesmaids! Bridal parties will indulge in some cake sampling of their own, have a little fun in a photobooth, and get a sneak peek at what the groomsmen may be wearing from JoS. A Bank.
Bridesmaids and mothers-of-the-bride purchasing their dresses during the event will receive a $20 discount.
Wash continues, “Virginia brides have proven to be savvy and expect a great shopping experience. Our new Springfield store will allow us to offer our services to even more brides in the Virginia and Washington, D.C. metro area in a beautiful and very accessible location.”
Along with the bridal collections, the Springfield location will carry bridesmaids, including the new eco-friendly Purely Alfred Angelo, flower girl dresses, and special occasion separates. Alfred Angelo makes it simple to outfit the entire bridal party. The bride will find everything she needs for all of her pre- and post-bridal festivities.
The Alfred Angelo bridal collections are available in sizes 0-30W, in short, tall and regular lengths. Trains can be extended on most styles. Many gowns can be customized with the ever-popular Dream In Color™ 55 colors.
Alfred Angelo’s new Springfield store will ensure all of the Alfred Angelo collections are accessible to thousands of women looking for elegant bridal fashions at affordable prices.
