Road to Reopening | Persnickety Bride

What started as a custom stationery business in 2007 has blossomed into The Persnickety Bride! Owner Denise’s love of working with couples and brides inspired her expansion into bridal, and it’s been a perfect fit.

Explained Denise, “I want to bring a level of joy and excitement to all of my brides that I didn’t see happening in other stores around me. Getting to know our brides on an intimate level as well as her family and celebration plans is what makes me truly excited about what I do. I consider The Persnickety Bride to be the source of their joy, their style, and their sourcing spot all in one beautiful boutique.”

We’re proud to be a part of The Persnickety Bride, not only because it offers excellent one-stop wedding shopping for brides, but because our style and Denise’s totally vibe.

“I scoured the market for five years planning for my opening. I wanted to be sure that I had just the right manufacturing partners to succeed. I knew the styles I wanted to carry, the look of my store. I find it very easy to visualize these sorts of things. I knew that once I saw Lea-Ann Belter’s dresses—she was going to be one of our favorite designers hands down. Having been a classic bride myself, Lea-Ann’s work exudes the classic yet contemporary bride. Her clean, elegant lines, gorgeous laces, silk, and organza remind me of a cross between the style of Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly. Her dresses are timeless, floating masterpieces. Exquisite fabrics and custom sizing to the bride has been our success in her line. There is just nothing in our shop that compares to Lea-Ann’s work.”


What’s your favorite Lea-Ann Belter gown?


“How can we choose? Every bride that has bought a Lea-Ann Belter design has absolutely adored the fit, fabrication, and joy her gown has brought her on her wedding day. All and all to say that my staff and I have a “girl crush” on Lea-Ann’s gowns is an understatement—it’s really a love affair!”
