Just had to share "Bess". She'll be a part of our fall collection coming SOON.
By David Tutera for Mon Cheri



Nope, it's not an April fools joke.
 Any gown purchased now  until July 29th will be entered in the drawing to have their gown paid for....IN FULL!

"I've got your BOHO"

It seems all I've been hearing lately is about "Boho". 

Well...I've found it.
by Chic Nostalgia

Expected by June

Expected in June by "Chic Nostalgia"

New from Jasmine Couture....

I don't mean to be unkind to this model. I'm sure she's a lovely person, BUT every gown that I've seen MY girls in that she has modeled?
She just doesn't hold a candle to.
(keep it in mind)

The Mikdo satin makes this gown sumptuous

The Staff at Encore is excited to announce that we are now a full bridal store! 

We want to share the love this Valentine's Day! Every bride who orders her gown in the month of February will receive $100 off!
Call to book an appointment today, this deal won't last long!  
(419) 352-7433

Well, the sale is over

and what a blast we had. 

So many girls left here with not only the gown of their dreams, but undeniable savings.
Now it's time to book your appointment to see all the new inventory.

We are just thrilled and I know you will be too!

This gem is on it's way here tomorrow!

We've GOT to do something special for December. 
How about this?
NOW...at LEAST $250.00 off the price of any sample gown over the price of $400.00

So technically, a $1500.00 gown would have sold for $750. MINUS $250. is $500.00



Now...what if it was $1000.00? $500. is NOW $250.00!! 

NO..I'm not kidding. It could even be LOWER than that!
I want to move these dresses. 
Make an offer!!


Enchanting by Mon Cheri


For Instance....

Can you believe this?                                       
This gown is $560.00! (Yes, you're reading it right)

This one too..$560.00
I was going to wait & announce in the New Year, but I just can't wait. 
The reason I as giving the $200.00 off any sample gown over $400.00 is because....We're getting out of the sample gown business.

Yep..going full scale bridal! (like MOST stores).

I'm sure we'll always have an "off the rack" dept. but for the most part you'll be ordering.

I'm very excited to announce the new lines we'll be carrying:

David Tutera,   
Jasmine Couture,  
Unforgetable,  Jolie, & Enchanting

Prices will range from around $500.00-$1500.
Go ahead and take a look on line at their 2017 spring collections.
I'm hoping all the samples will be in by the end of January.

We've got several in now.

I've got a little secret. 
I can't exactly spill it just yet BUT!

Call for an appointment between now & December and mention that you know I have a secret...BONUS!
I'll take an additional $200.00 of any sample gown over $400.00

I know right?   You can't believe it!
I'm crazy

You know what's a shame about these pictures?
You have NO idea how "sparkly" this gown is.
Originally over $3000.00
Encore Price $950.00

Samples of samples!

I just wanted to give you a few ideas of what's "hanging around"
Starling by Sophia Tolli

Still available in stores for $1800.00, Our price $985.00

 Sophia Tolli Wedding Dresses, Spring 2015. Rose pink evokes classic love and ball gown Starling captures just that in lace and misty tulle. Delicate scalloped lace frames the strapless sweetheart neckline with crystal and pearl hand-beading, enhancing the captivating quality of the lace. Hand-placed shadow box lace appliques adorn the bodice and spill into the romantic voluminous skirt with chapel length train, highlighting the effortless beauty of the design. A matching hand-beaded satin belt at the natural waist and back corset complete this one-of-a-kind gown. 

Here's another beauty form Sophia
 Still available for $2,200.00
Or maybe you rather only pay $985.00!

Size 6



Well the good weather is here, and we are LOVING IT!
I have some news to share.

As well as being the self proclaimed 

"Queen of designer sample gowns", 

We have embarked on a new adventure we think brides are going to love.

Have you been shopping?  found the EXACT top that you were looking for, but the bottom was not?

Or vice versa? 

Well, We are now working with a designer that will allow us to basically "build your own gown"!

YOU pick the silhouette and fabric, the style of lace? the top and bottom, and we have it put together.. 
Just the way you want!

You will not believe the pricing for this kind of customization.

Be one of the first's to design your own gown at a price you can afford.

Be safe, wear sunscreen and I hope to see you soon,


We're just getting ready to celebrate our 1st year of being at our downtown location.

It's been an"interesting" and learning experience. 

Some of you may know that one of the reasons we moved here was so that I could carry the beautiful collection of gowns designed by David Tutera & Martin Thornburg by Mon Cheri.

We stalked them for 2 years before deciding to invest in the line. Let me be clear...


What we have learned though...is that OUR community isn't willing to pay quite that much for their wedding gown. 

On average our audience is looking to spend between $800-$1500.00

SO...that's what I'm going to give 

There are a couple lines that I feel will give you all the new looks with quality workmanship without going over $1,500.00. 

**this is what I'm referring to in the newest post****

I will ALWAYS  continue to offer my designer "sample" gowns. These gowns are NEW gowns & have not been worn, they're just discontinued.

Maggie Sottero, Allure, Steven York, Justin Alexander and even Hayley Paige.

Originally priced anywhere from $800.00 to over $4,000.00 these gowns range from $500- to $1,200.00

So, if you want the gown of your dreams, WITHOUT the nightmare price..Please come and visit us. 

I look forward to working with each one of you.

Let's make it a Happy and Healthy New Year!

       Happy Halloween! 

No tricks for you...ONLY TREATS!

You are NOT going to believe the price of this......READY?

I wouldn't kid you about a thing like that
This new line from Mon Cheri is remarkable. MOST are under $800.00
Sleeveless tea-length lace over tulle A-line dress with lace illusion bateau neckline, lace illusion back with covered buttons, natural waist belt with center bow, full skirt with scalloped hem.
Wouldn't this be darling in the spring or summer?

 Sizes: 0 – 20  $700-750.00

Here's a few more from the Spring 2016 collection

This is the reason I chose the David Tutera collection, these gowns are just so feminine, & lovely.
