All women deserve to wear quality products on their wedding day
What made you decide to open your own business?
I have three older sisters, and from the age of 12, I was helping to plan their weddings. When I was in college and designing bridal gowns, my one sister asked me to make hers. That was far too much pressure for me, but I offered to help shop with her. When I saw the poor quality and construction of the cheaper gowns, I was horrified. All women deserve to wear quality products on their wedding day. We were also astonished at the high prices of veils, headpieces and jewelry. After spending their entire budget on their dress, most women forget that they need to accessorize as well! This is one of the most common instances where brides exceed their budget. My sisters begged me to find a solution. I let the idea sit for quite a while, but after my 3rd sister got married, the idea started to materialize.
So, five years ago, Happily Ever Borrowed opened its doors to the public to help brides across the US look their best without exceeding their budgets!
What is your favorite part of what you do?
The best part of my job is seeing happy brides. I love receiving their feedback, their reviews, and their photos of their special day! We send our brides personal notes of congrats, and getting them back is just as rewarding!
We wanted to provide brides with their “happily ever after”, and we do that through our borrowing…and voila!
What is one of your favorite memories since you founded Happily Ever Borrowed?
We were once shouted out on z100, unbeknownst to us! Five minutes later, I had several calls from friends who were driving to work telling us we were on the radio! We had no idea, and apparently the radio station just happens to be a fan of our idea!
