MESA, AZ - 'Tis the time for weddings! And one of the priciest items to find is the perfect wedding dress.
Safiyyah Johnson is planning her wedding, so she decided to take her 8-year-old daughter wedding dress shopping to find the perfect dress at the perfect price.
Their first stop was Brilliant Bridal in Mesa where most of their wedding dresses are 50 to 70 percent off retail! Brilliant Bridal has new wedding dresses for under $100, but their specialty is high end designer dresses for less.
“We have $3,000 Maggie Sottero dresses right now that we are selling for $895. We have other dresses that retail between $700 and $1,500 that we are selling $300 to $500,“ says Melanie Little, owner of Brilliant Bridal.
Prices that Johnson says will help keep her stress-free. “If I can stay within a budget and find a beautiful dress, then I'm happy.”
She isn't the only one who will find beautiful dresses at a discount. They also have bridesmaid dresses, flower girl dresses, formal dresses, evening dresses, prom dresses, mother of the bride, mother of the groom, and a full line of accessories and veils.
Little prides herself on making women coming out feeling like a princess.
“We want women to walk out of this store feeling beautiful, feeling like they’ve found their dress, like they wouldn’t have wanted any other dress in the world. But they just happen to get a killer deal on it," Little said.
Johnson says she had ‘that’ feeling after trying on just three dresses!
“I think I’ve found the dress that I needed to find,” she said happily.
