Wedding Vendor Spotlight: The Wedding Shoppe

The Wedding Shoppe

The Wedding Shoppe Experience

To put it simply: wedding dresses ROCK! This is one of the most exciting elements of bringing your wedding vision to life. Sometimes when you find the perfect bridal gown, the rest falls into place. With that being said Mike Staff Productions paid a visit to one of our favorite local vendors, The Wedding Shoppe!

You may be asking yourself what would a wedding DJ, Photography & Videography company have in common with a bridal dress store? Besides the obvious (weddings) the biggest thing we share: values. The Wedding Shoppe’s team and ours both deeply believe in providing the most remarkable service to our clients from the moment they walk in our door to the moment they say ‘I do’ and beyond! We both love what we do so it never feels like ‘work’.

WATCH: What Makes The Wedding Shoppe Unique

Wedding Dress Trends

After 20 years in the bridal fashion world, with more than 500 gowns hanging on their racks, The Wedding Shoppe has learned that bridal fashion is always evolving. One of the most unique aspects about this company is that they have built deep connections with exclusive designers from all corners of the world and creatively partnered with them to style gown concepts for future bridal gown lines.  Just like you can’t find another company that can bundle up to 4 major wedding services together – keep in mind – you’re not going to find Wedding Shoppe wedding dresses anywhere else!

We talked with owner, Michelle McFarland about wedding dress trends on deck for the 2022-2023 wedding season. You’re in luck, their store is already full of the latest trends in the industry. Take a sneak peak!

The Wedding Shoppe Experience

VIP Wedding Dress Shopping Party’s

Here’s out it worked: The Wedding Shoppe shut down their store just for these contest winners and their guests to give them a private wedding dress shopping experience. Mike Staff Productions provided the winner with their own personal DJ to spin their favorite music, a professional wedding photographer & a videographer to document the party. They shopped until they dropped, until the winners said “yes to the dress”! 

2018 Winner: Kelsey

“This experience is what I imagine celebrities go through when picking out a dress (at least in my head). Everyone at the shop made me feel welcome and special.  I can’t say enough amazing things about my consultant Haley! She really is what made this the best experience it could be. She put my mind at ease when I started to feel overwhelmed with the selection and the amount of input from my party (I am surrounded by strong women in my life). She could read me like a book and knew exactly I would like and dislike, just after having a quick conversation and trying on the first dress.”

“Mike Staff Productions far beyond exceeded my expectations! Everyone was so nice and really made me feel like a celebrity. Bethany, Pat and Justice were an incredible team and I can’t wait to see all the pictures and video!

The wedding DJ did a great job with the playlist I gave him. He found the right time to play the songs I gave him and it set the mood for the entire day. Having videos and photos of this wedding experience means so much! They will be treasures I will cherish for a lifetime and will always remind me of the special day we shared at The Wedding Shoppe.”

2019 Winner: Krystina

“My consultant, Kelly, was wonderful. She made the experience so enjoyable and she took such great care in listening and finding dresses that I loved. As a bride, it was such a different experience to have them “shut down the shop” just for you!! I don’t think it could have been any better. They have so many dresses to choose from and a wide price range, which was pleasantly surprising! I feel like boutique bridal salons are known for crazy prices, but The Wedding Shoppe had BEAUTIFUL gowns for any budget.”

“Their facility is beautiful, and their staff is so friendly. Even if I didn’t find my dress, it would have been a day for the books!! It was such a blessing to be showered with love and support from the people that I love, and Mike Staff Productions made it that much more special and memorable. I know that The Lord loves us lavishly, and this experience made it feel so tangible.”

“Having a wedding photographer and videographer from Mike Staff there was priceless. For me, buying my wedding dress is a moment to treasure because it is symbolic of such a special day and an even more special life with the one that I love. Being engaged and planning a wedding is such a fun season, and it’s so short. I want to savor every special part along the way!”

2020 Winner: Audrey

“I had the absolute best time! Walking into The Wedding Shoppe we were greeted with an awesome floral smell and gorgeous dresses – the whole place sparkled. I loved that we were the only ones there and Shawn, the consultant, was amazing. She was able to pull dresses based on the description of dress styles I liked, and she didn’t pressure me into one or the other. She didn’t rush us either, and made sure to tell me that we had all the time we needed, so I knew I wasn’t rushed into this big decision either.”

“It’s crazy, because the first dress I tried on is the one I said yes to! When trying on other dresses, I kept comparing them to that first one. So I had tried on a few different style dresses and my family and friends being there was great because they could help steer me in the right direction. I had finally got my choices down to two (from the same designer) and Shawn had told me, “Don’t rush. Take a seat, drink some wine, think about it”.
