Senior Bridal Consultant

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!



Senior Bridal Consultant

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.



Senior Bridal Consultant & Buyer
Accessory Specialist

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!"



Senior Bridal Consultant & Buyer
Website 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.



Bridal Consultant

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.



Bridal & Special Occasion Consultant

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.



Special Occasion Consultant/Manager

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.



Bridal Consultant/Ordering Specialist

I am all about the fairytale. My goal is to make every bride feel like a princess on her special day by listening to them and ensuring that I deliver nothing less than perfection. Helping beautiful brides find their dream dress is so magical and has inspired me to pursue my career in fashion!



Bridal & Special Occasions Consultant/Ordering Specialist

I began at Trudys in 2016 with a bridal background from SoCal. I am a major contributor in ordering as well as specializing in bridal and bridesmaids. I love to genuinely connect with my brides, making them feel like their best friend while helping them find their dream gown.



Special Occasion & Mothers Consultant

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.



Special Occasion & Mothers Consultant

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.



Mothers & Special Occasion Consultant/Greeter

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.
