The wedding dress is often called the most important outfit that a woman will ever wear. And in the United States, over 2.4 million women get married every year. So it should come as no surprise that brides search high and low, traveling out of their home state and sometimes out of the country, looking for the perfect dress in which to walk down the aisle.
And this very situation is what persuaded sisters Lesley and Jenny Bartosek to open B. Loved Bridal Boutique. It seems that running a business together was their destiny, because as young girls, the two would play shop and set up items to “sell” with monopoly money.
When Lesley got engaged, she quickly noticed that finding that perfect and unique dress was not an easy task. The sisters quickly learned that Columbus had a gap in the bridal market that they could fill. Lesley stated, “That’s why we’re in the business of finding hidden gems; unique wedding dresses designed by coveted and unknown designers alike, who care about dress construction and sourcing awe-inspiring materials.”
Lesley and Jennifer have spent endless hours selecting the perfect brands to offer their brides, considering the trends, price, quality and fabrics all while making sure to carry a wide array of styles. The designers B. Loved carries come from as close as Cincinnati and Chicago and as far away as Australia and Barcelona. And, if that isn’t enough, B. Loved also carries some organic gowns for the eco-conscious bride as well as the Beyond Bridal Bridesmaid Collection from Lubna Designs starting this May.
So what happens when you step in the doors of B. Loved? Brides will not get the impersonal, chaotic experience that is often displayed in many stores. B. Loved brides are given a personal, luxurious experience no matter the size of their budget. The boutique itself is like a beautiful accent to the gorgeous dresses not only simulating your visual senses but also your sense of smell with fresh flowers all around. While shopping at B. Loved, every bride is assisted with the daunting decision of what type of bride she wants to be, how the venue plays into her look and what style accentuates her body type. “Lesley won’t let you walk out with a dress unless you look beautiful,” said Jenny.
Just read the reviews on the B. Loved facebook page and you will see that allowing Lesley and Jennifer to be part of your white dress moment will exceed your expectations. The Bartosek sisters have even included luxury event planning by Danica Nordstrom-Reding of Danica Signature Events in their mission for the perfect white dress moment. Danica helps design the perfect wedding to go along with the perfect dress.
