For all of you fellow romantics out there, we would like to share Cate Carpenter’s inspiring story with you! Following her love for being a true romantic, Cate Carpenter opened Little White Dress Bridal Shop in January of 2008, with the hope of being able to provide Colorado brides with a unique, personal, and welcoming dress shopping experience. The goal of a Little White Dress Bridal shopping experience is for brides to shop the store’s high quality inventory while also receiving high quality service from employees who treat you like family! As a dress shop owner for almost 14 years, Cate’s best advice for a bride-to-be is to enjoy every moment of this chapter of your life, and to not stress the little things! She also offered advice for brides who are shopping on a budget, and she explained that there are beautiful of all styles and sizes for reasonable prices too!
Cate was able to provide us with some insight about common misconceptions that brides-to-be make while shopping for their dresses! One of the common mistakes that new brides make is not realizing the lengthy process that goes into purchasing a wedding gown. Many brides do not realize that once they purchase a dress, it will take the designer an additional 3-5 months to actually make the gown! This is why it is important to start shopping for your gown 9-12 months before the wedding to ensure that there is enough time for the dress to be made, and altered if necessary before the big day!
Cate’s favorite part about working at Little White Dress Shop is seeing her team doing the jobs that they love, and also seeing the happiness that they bring to brides and their families when they finally find the perfect dress to make them feel beautiful and confident on their big day. To all of our Colorado brides out there, go check out Little White Dress Bridal Shop for a luxury, unique, and amazing dress shopping experience!
