Angela and Christine are the owners of Bella Bridesmaids Long Island. This is a 2nd career for both of them. Angela is a retired RN and Christine had a career in the ski fashion industry.
We opened in August of 2019 and we are excited to bring the Bella experience to Brides of Long Island! We both love fashion, business and a great wedding!
The Wedding Industry
After retiring from 35 years as an RN Angela, who had already planned 3 of her children's weddings, decided she wanted to bring the Bella experience to Long Island bridesmaids.
After 6 months of research she was able to convince her long time friend Christine into partnering with her! We both felt that Huntington was the perfect location!
Here at Bella Bridesmaids we love a fabulous wedding!
The Wedding Memories
Being a bridesmaid is the most beautiful way to celebrate love and friendship, and we are honored to play a part in that!
Our favorite memories involving witnessing a satisfied and happy bridal party laughing, and toasting as they leave our store!
At Bella Bridesmaids we specialize in offering a unique personal shopping experience for your bridesmaids-either as a group or on an individual basis!
We carry over 600 bridesmaids dresses currently with 12 different designers.
We also carry flower girls dresses and dresses for mothers!
In May of 2000 Bella Bridesmaids was founded by Bridget Brown in California. In 2012 Kathleen and Erin Casey, a mother and daughter, bought the franchise. Today there are 60 Bella stores all over the US!
Angela Vomero and Christine Lyons opened the Bella store in Huntington in August of 2019 and we are the only one on Long Island!
Unique to Bella Bridesmaids is the virtual showroom that is created at the first appointment for each bride. This showroom will have any of the gowns that the bride loved with all the information on the gown. The bride invites each bridesmaid into the virtual showroom and this is where the ordering takes place! It is a perfect way for the bride and bridesmaids to see all the choices of gowns in the color that the bride chose.
