Rachel Ann Bridal & Formalwear is a bridal boutique located in Flemming Island, Florida that offers a personalized hour and a half one-on-one experience for each and every appointment made. It all started with a mother and daughter duo who both have a passion for beautiful gowns and more importantly, bridal gowns. They understand the importance of finding the bride’s dream wedding gown, which is why each of their consultants is well-informed and knowledgeable of all things bridal. We spoke owner, Rachel Ann Walker, about her boutique and love of bridal gowns and here is what she had to say……
What made you decide to work in the wedding industry? I’ve always had a passion for bridal gowns since I was a little girl. I dreamed of becoming a wedding dress designer all my life.
What do you love the very most about what you do? Finding that perfect dress and seeing the new bride-to-be fall in love with her dress.
Tell the brides-to- be your best wedding advice. Just remember it is only 4 hours of your entire life. Things will go wrong but just enjoy yourself and don’t stress or try to micro-manage every issue.
What is your most favorite wedding trend right now? Colors for a wedding gown. I love brides who are willing to step away from tradition and wear something unique to show their personality.
What do you do that makes you stand out more so than others in your industry? I don’t just sell you a wedding gown. I give you a dress shopping experience for you to remember. I also help my brides with any planning issues they may be having.
How far in advance should a bride to be contact you before the wedding? I would recommend a bride allow 4 – 6 months to purchase their gown and allow time for any alterations that need to be made.
