New Area Bridal Store: Alfred Angelo

A new bridal store has opened in the Columbus area!  Alfred Angelo is open in the NW Columbus area – it is actually in the old IDG Jewelers store at the corner of 161 and Sawmill Road.

I would normally mention the opening on Twitter or Facebook but wouldn’t necessarily blog about it, so why am I posting this?  Because Alfred Angelo carries a complete range of SAMPLE sizes in store.  So what does that mean?  It means that if normal bridal sample sizes don’t fit you, you’ll actually able to try on gowns at this store!

The sizing works in groupings – 2-6, 6-10, 10-14, etc – all the way to 30W!  The store has every dress they carry in every size group – so if you see a dress you love online, you can likely try it on at the store no matter what size you wear!  To be clear, these aren’t dresses off the rack – they are all still special order but you’ll get an idea of what the dress will look like in your actual size.

If you aren’t sure what styles would look good, this would also be a great place to start – try on that mermaid gown, try on the strapless or the halter or the corset dress in your size, try on the ballgown or a-line style.  You’ll know how that style looks when the dress actually zips.

To some this might not seem like a big deal but when you go into a bridal store and every gown you try on is too small, it can be tough to imagine what a dress will look like when it does fit.  It also really puts a damper on the thrill of dress shopping to be told over and over that you’ll just have to picture it like it fits.

They also carry bridesmaids dresses up to 30W and have samples in store to try on in those styles as well.

Welcome to Columbus, Alfred Angelo!  I am sure quite a few people are going to be very happy to have you here!
