Hello Brides to be, my name is Dawn and I wanted to thank you for showing an interest in The Blushing Bridal Suite.

I am very passionate about what I do, bridal is everything to me. My shop is located in a bridal store, I dress my brides and yes you'll even have my cell phone number because we will chat all things hair and makeup and your favorite looks. I also keep a close watch and track your dress if you purchased it here!
I stay up to date with the latest styles and trends as I often attend many shows, this is something I love to share with my brides as well! I promise to become your best wedding friend of the year so when it comes time for your big day I already know all about your family and of course Grandma! I have had a passion and love for the bridal industry since I was 10 years old, I lived in queens across from a church and use to run to see every person getting married, my interest runs deep!
The Wedding Industry
I have been interested in the bridal industry since I was 10 years old. I lived across the street from a church back in queens. Everytime a wedding went on I would hear the bells go off and I would run across the street to see all of the details. I truely loved it.
I truly love all aspects of it and if I can make someones day special, it makes my day!
OOOOO yes! I have a special one. Makeup Artist in full effect-- but not makeup artist related!!! I was working a wedding doing hair/makeup
and normally I stay to make sure everyone is dressed and good to go. I felt it in my bones that I should stay a little longer.
All of a sudden I notice a bridesmaid in the corner that was struggling to get her dress zipped up. I looked and said, this zipper is broken! Two seconds later, zipper busted ad the dress broke with only one hour until church time.
I took the bridesmaid and rushed her to the dress store and had the owner sew her into her bridesmaid dress in twenty minutes flat! We rushed back to the house and made it on time for the church.
History on my company:
It all started about two years ago. I had worked in Garden City for around 15 years but always promised myself once I got married I was going to leave and start my the bridal business I always wanted. I did makeup on the side and on weekends I studied the art for about ten years. Finally I got married, left my job and walked into the wedding store I bought my dress from. The owner was so happy to see me and I was telling him about my job interview I came from . He then says work here! So just like that I started managing the store. He offered some space up to me to build my empire and I thought to myself.
Frequently Asked Questions
How do you have patience?
I have patience becasue I love what I do and I understand the place a Bride is coming from - if it's fustration, and being on a constant time schedule... dont take it personal and just be there for support it's about them not you, and kick ass doing the best job you can.
Do I wear my hair up or down with my dress?
Wearing your hair up or down is prefrence and what ever makes you comfortable! Consider the weather, time of season, or style of dresss and what complements your face features best.
