#dgbride: Megan

September 23, 2020

Delicious #dgbride Megan married her soulmate, Andy, on July 11, 2020 at the Barn at Grace Hill in Newton, Kansas. Even though COVID-19 made an impact on their day in a big way, they didn’t let that stop them from celebrating this momentous occasion!

Megan chose The Barn at Grace Hill due to its gorgeous simplicity. They accented their black details with pops of white and greenery, keeping their wedding day chic and timeless. She created her dream wedding herself, utilizing Pinterest to help with details. Her advice to brides, however? Get a wedding planner!

“The experience would have been 10x more enjoyable had a coordinator done it for me!”

Megan had visited one other bridal boutique before she entered into Dress Gallery to work with her consultant, Katie. She had an idea of what she wanted, but wasn’t really finding anything she connected with. Finally, Katie had a wild card idea she thought Megan would like.

“When Katie brought it out and walked me to the mirror, I said “Finally! THIS is the one!”” Megan said. “I loved everything about the dress. The open back, all the beading, the train, and the glitter – it was so me and perfect for my body type. Then, Katie paired it with the most perfect veil and my mom found the perfect earrings. We had the whole look complete!”

“Dress Gallery is the only place I would send my friends to!” Megan said. “The store is beautiful, they have so many designers and price points for any brides budget. The employees are knowledgeable and so helpful! Katie even checked up on me during COVID, before stores were shutting down, which speaks volumes about the customer service.”

We so appreciate the kind words, Megan!

Speaking of COVID-19, Megan & Andy didn’t let changes affect their big day. On the day prior to their wedding, Sedgwick County changed the mask mandate, leaving Megan scrambling to get everything ready for her guests’ safety.

“We got individualized hand sanitzer bottles for our guests, along with masks, and individual pens to sign the guetsbook,” Megan said. “Even though it was crazy, we still did it! TAKE THAT COVID!”

Congratulations, Andy and Megan! Thank you so much for putting your faith in Dress Gallery for your bridal gown. We are so thankful you chose us to be a small part of your special day. We wish you both a lifetime of love & happiibess!
