I started working at Trudys in the 90's and still love the excitement when I meet my Brides and their families. My goal is to see the sparkle in their eyes when they feel beautiful in the gown and "Say Yes" to the dress!
Website Designer/Content Manager
I have been with Trudys since 2009. My biggest thrill is to bring the Brides' vision to life by learning about their style/personality and finding a gown that best fits them. I always challenge myself to beat their best dress by choosing what I call a "wild-card dress" that's unexpected and most often ends up being their perfect gown.
I just completed my 5-year anniversary at Trudys. I am a total "bling girl" and love to help my Brides find that sparkle in their gown, whether it's simple or bedazzled. I especially love adding that perfect accessory to complete their bridal look. My motto is "Go big or Go Home!"
I have been at Trudys for over 4 years and feel like my Brides can tell me anything. Developing a strong friendship helps me find a gown that best fits their personality. I want my Brides to cherish the memory and the journey of finding their dream dress.
Although I only work part-time, I have been with Trudys for over 9 years and love helping Brides with their vision of that perfect gown and being part of that process with them.
My favorite part of being a Consultant is going outside the box and bringing something that the Brides would never have picked for themselves. I love high fashion and couture styles, so my goal is to make my Brides feel fashionable, unique and beautiful.
I have been with Trudys for over a year and love working here. I love the vintage style and can relate to wedding themes and styles that my Brides have and try my best to find them the gown that embodies their theme.
I love finding "the one" for my Brides and continuing to work with them in our other departments. Being part of a Bride's entire experience is the best part of my job! I want to make this journey as enjoyable and effortless as possible.
I love working with Special Occasion customers who shop for many different events, especially the Mothers who come in trying to find that perfect gown to wear to their daughter's or son's wedding. I enjoy helping everyone find what makes them look and feel fabulous.
I have been with Trudys for over 10 years and love working with all of the Mothers of the Bride and Groom who are looking for that perfect dress. I also help in all aspects of the Special Occasion department and love what I do. I am also fluent in Spanish.
I have had the privilege of being part of the Trudys family for 14 years. I love making all my customers dreams come true and seeing them feel beautiful. My reward is knowing I helped them find "the dress" that makes them feel great about themselves.
