About Abi's experience at Luv Bridal in Phoenix, Arizona

"Everyone at the shop was extremely kind. It was a beautiful shop with a wide variety of options and styles. After trying a few dresses, my stylist was able to figure out what I liked and what I didn't like. She then said, "I think I have just what you're looking for." She came back with the exact dress that I had saved to my Pinterest board months ago (I had forgotten to show her the picture earlier). I was excited and quite shocked because who finds the EXACT dress they saved months ago? Later, I found out that there was only one dress left in my size. It felt like it was meant to be!"



About Abi and Josh's Luv Story


"We met at work and became great friends, and couldn't help falling in love. He's a true gentleman, my best friend and biggest supporter.. After a year and a half together, he planned a beautiful surprise proposal for me on the pier in San Clemente, California. And, of course, I said yes! We had a beautiful ceremony at the Lost Dutchman State Park with the desert and mountains surrounding us. A quick bus ride took us all to my parent's backyard where we had the most fun night of our lives partying with everyone!
I wanted a formal but laid-back feeling, so lots of flowers, tulle, and candles. We opted for a banquet-style table set up to encourage a “togetherness”, like one big family dinner! The ambiance was perfect and worth all the planning!"

"I saved a picture of a pink dress on my wedding board as a goal for my dream dress design, without thinking that I could find it locally. The design was perfect for my wedding vision. Little did I know, the same dress was also available in white and in my size at the Luv Bridal shop that I went to! "






Abi's Advice for Future Luv Brides


"Remember, it's just one day, so do what makes you and your partner happy. No need to overdo it or put too much pressure on yourselves."
