The most gorgeous gowns Minneapolis has to offer are most certainly at A&Bé Bridal Shop. Perfectly unique gowns for non-traditional brides are their forte, and they host a beautiful collection of designers such as Truvelle, Katie May, Anna Campbell, Rue De Seine, and Sarah Seven. Equally as gorgeous as their gowns is the shop itself. Oh my. With it's chic mid-century decor, laid back living room vibe, and gowns and accessories you can actually see and touch (oh yes!), it's no wonder A&Bé was recently voted one of the "Top 50 Bridal Shops in America" by BRIDES Magazine. I'm in love (and admittedly biased since I moonlight as a bridal stylist here from time to time)!
A&Bé recently celebrated their &ONE birthday party to celebrate one year of business in MN by hosting a fabulous bash and I was fortunate enough to celebrate with them and snap some photos of the evening as well! Wedding vendor friends stopped in early to have some fun trying on gowns, the sweets and champagne were remarkably delicious, the runway show was killer, and the giveaways were a HIT! One lucky lady even scored a free engagement session with yours truly! We were super honored to have designer Sarah Seven in attendance as well. There's a shot of her tearing it up on the dance floor at the end of this post!
Major thanks and praise to all of the WONDERFUL ladies at A&Bé for planning and hosting this shindig and also to the incredible vendors who contributed to the beauty and life of the party as well! Thanks to Whimsy Designs, Cocoa & Fig, Just Cuz Beauty, Keen Bee Calligraphy, Instant Request DJ Entertainment, Room No. 3, The Bow Tie Shoppe, Amazing Alterations, and Liquid Motion.
To all of my beautiful brides-to-be: THIS IS THE PLACE! I so badly wish they had a MN location when I got married (sigh). Do yourself a favor and book an appointment at A&Bé!
