Beverly Hills Bridal Emporium is the second location for owner, Michele Donaldson. The original store, Beverly Hills Bridal ExChange, is located in California and has been hugely successful since opening its doors in 2009.
Believing that style and quality should not have to be sacrificed for price, Michele created a chic boutique that redefines traditional elegance for the modern bride by offering new and sample one-of-a-kind designer gowns and select once-wed bridal and formal gowns for all occasions by today’s most sought after designers. All gowns are available for immediate purchase off the rack and are tailored for every woman’s budget. Before venturing into entrepreneurship, Michele was an RN and served in the US Army, worked as a college professor and a lawyer/lobbyist in Washington, D.C.
Due to Beverly Hills Bridal ExChange’s success, Michele made the decision to expand her business and chose to bring Beverly Hills to Texas! She says, “Dallas has so much to offer… friendly people, beautiful women, a huge pageant community, proms galore, balls and galas, a thriving economy, and my very favorite thing…longhorn cattle!”
In order to make this expansion a reality, she partnered with Kristi Mattison, a Dallas native and lead singer in one of Dallas’ most popular wedding bands. Kristi has been involved with the wedding industry from the entertainment perspective for 10+ years and has worked with hundreds of brides and performed in a vast array of wedding venues. Before joining her current band, she sang locally with her mother upon their return from Nashville, and previously owned a restaurant on Lake Grapevine. By combining their talents, skills and experience, Beverly Hills Bridal Emporium was born!
In addition to bridal gowns and social attire, you can find accessories including veils, headpieces, jewelry, unique gifts for the bride and tuxedo rentals. Custom beadwork is also performed on site along with reasonably priced alteration services. Wedding gown preservation services are also available.
"We can’t wait to help you create a memorable experience for your special event!”
