Facchianos has gone international!!!

We got a great email with pictures from our bride Rebecca so I wanted to post it. She was a sweetheart, her gown is a Sophia Tolli from Mon Cheri and we ordered sleeves to match that draped on her shoulders.

Dear Jennifer,

It's been almost a year since I came into your store one Tuesday morning. By that evening I came out carrying my dream dress!
I had flown especially to Tulsa from France to look for my wedding dress, having been recommended your salon by my aunt Colleen. I have been looking at wedding dresses since I was 11 and new exactly what I wanted, and when I found it in your store it brought such joy that tears streamed down my face. I hand carried it though 6 DIFFERENT AIRPORTS TO GET IT BACK HERE. We had a wedding in a 4th century seaside castle on the french Rivera and everyone was amazed by my dress. I was able to get ready at one of the most prestigious French Hotels the Negresco and even there compliments about the dress pro fused from everyone's lips.

My greatest joy is that I will be able to wear it again as I have another wedding party in Tulsa next month!
Thank you for all your help!
Rebecca

I want to congratulate Rebecca on her wonderful wedding and I just love this picture of her in the lovely gown we helped her with :)

What a weekend!!! We had more brides Saturday in one day then I have ever seen in out store. The Tulsa Wedding show was right down the street at the Renaissance Hotel on Highway 169, and I thought we would be busy just because of our location, but we had every room busy from the time we opened the doors at Facchianos at 71st and Garnett from 10AM until closing time. We had 18 new brides visit and try on gowns at our store. Some girls found the gown of their dreams on the first day out. One of my brides who is getting married in July came in just to make an appointment to come back at a later date and wound up trying on and finding not only her gown, but her veil, headpiece, headband, and accessories. Her mom cried when she saw it all put together. She then said to me, I didn't think I would be buying my gown today, but here I am getting a gown. She was sent to me from Destry at Glamour Artz who was at the wedding show, thanks Destry. I would also like to thank Jason from DJ Connection Tulsa who also sent brides directly to Facchianos. I would like to congratulate all our new brides that became Facchianos brides this weekend, we love having you and will do everything we can to make your wedding perfect!!

The wedding season has begun!!!!

We just got some pictures of Ashley Gammon who got married at Bridal Creek which is owned by a former bride of Facchianos Kendra, she loved planning her wedding so much she opened a wedding venue. Ashley's dress was designed by Maggie Sottero, and we at Facchianos redesigned it and added a flip up collar that she loved on another gown. She looks stunning in this photo we snagged off of Facebook, we are on there so request to be our friend or be a fan of Facchianos. We started busy season 2010 and were crazy busy today with tons of newly engaged brides, we were very excited to have some new brides become part of our Facchianos family. We also had a photographer from Epic Photography in the store today, and a makeup artist Destry from Glam Or Artz doing makeup consultations. Congratulations to all the newly engaged and our new members of the Facchianos Bridal Family. If you need to get more info or make an appointment call 918-461-(VOWS) 8697
