Dear Opulent Bride,
I know the stress of wedding planning. You’re exhausted with all of the decisions to be made and deposits to put down. And you quickly discovered that everyone has an opinion. Everyone. What you need is a girls’ day! A day where you are celebrated and pampered.
When I was approaching the big day, it’s definitely what I needed. But, as I searched for my own wedding dress, I was met with a variety of sales attitudes and never truly felt listened to. Right then, I knew there had to be a better way.
My passion lies in helping others, and at one time, I was on the path to becoming a doctor. But life happens, and after my father passed away I decided to leave medical school and allowed my dreams to shift. I met my husband, Matt, and though it wasn’t the path I originally chose, my own wedding dress shopping experience sparked a new dream in me. That dream became a reality inside Opulence Bridal.
So, in 2018, in beautiful downtown Henderson, KY I started this gorgeous and fun little bridal boutique Opulence Bridal. You should have seen my own groom, in his farming overalls and a beanie, standing in my front window steaming every single one of my dresses as we prepared for opening day! He mainly hangs new light bulbs for me now, but at the beginning, I couldn’t have done it without him. Having a partner who invests in your dreams is an amazing feeling! I’m so excited you’ve found yours!
At Opulence Bridal, I extend the same invitation to every bride. An invitation to breathe, relax, and enjoy creating a memory with friends and family. If you haven’t already, be sure to book your private, complimentary bridal appointment with me.
This is where I prepare the shop specifically for you. You will be listened to, even before you step foot inside. Just think of me as your favorite aunt who’s helping with the decision process. We’ll have a few conversations before we meet, I promise! You will not be rushed or judged. We are on a mission to find the dress that accentuates your features, showcases your existing beauty and radiates opulence to all of your wedding guests.
You’ll discover that my approach is a little different than other shops you may have visited. I listen, I educate and I celebrate you.
I have done my part if you feel magnificent, opulent and completely you on your wedding day. Thank you for allowing me to play a small role in your happily ever after.
P.S. I love phone calls, so if you’d prefer to skip the online form, just give me a call: (270) 957-5100
P.S.S. Never be afraid to ask me questions, but you might just find your answer below!
Frequently Asked Questions by Our Opulent Brides
What will my private appointment look like?
You’ll have the entire boutique to yourself for 1.5 hours. If you need more time, we can always schedule another appointment for you. You can bring 2 of your favorite people with you. Before your appointment we’ll discuss your bridal gown vision and body shape. Then, on the day of your appointment, we’ll pull dresses we believe will help you fulfill that vision. Of course you can peruse all of our dresses at your leisure as well. Once you say “yes” to the dress, we can continue the celebration with a toast (upon request) and a fun photo op!
What style of wedding gowns do you carry?
Ashley, the owner, picks out every single one of the gowns you’ll see in the shop. She works with bridal gown designers whose dresses are not found locally. There are a few things we look for in any gown we choose: quality, classic fits, beautiful lace and timeless embellishments. We have the classic gown styles, but we also carry unique designs you won’t find anywhere else in the area. Learn more about our dresses here!

Since we’re making this a celebration, can we bring in food or drink for our appointment?

Do you alter the dresses?
You will come in and be fitted at Opulence Bridal. Then we will send your gown to one of the different alterations specialists we routinely work with. We love seeing how they’re able to take any gown and make it fit our Opulent Brides.
What do other brides say about your boutique?
Great question! We love hearing from our brides throughout the entire process. Opulence Bridal began with the belief that every bride deserves a pampered, relaxed atmosphere as she searches for her wedding dress. So, we always keep that in mind with each of our complimentary, private bridal appointments. To see what our brides are saying, hop over and read our reviews on Facebook.

What does it mean to be an Opulent Bride?
Opulent means a little something different to all of us. Each person’s version of luxurious and beautiful is going to be different than yours. That’s what makes each of us so special! Your wedding gown should reflect that. So, here is our definition of an Opulent Bride:
A bride who feels gorgeous and her own unique version of luxurious as she begins her journey down the aisle as true royalty for a day.
