Though it’s been in its beautiful Katy/West Houston location since fall, Weddings by Debbie is still enjoying that new salon smell. As for Houston area brides, they’re elegant, sophisticated look and larger size of the new store, located at 20235-B Katy Freeway, Katy, TX 77450.
We checked in with WBD vice president AJ Ruley, who told us that brides are big fans of the salon’s large dressing rooms, “enormous viewing area” and plentiful mirrors, which allow each bride to view each dress she tries on from a variety of angles. “Our atmosphere promotes beauty and sophistication,” she says, adding, “We make every effort to make each girl feel special.”
Not only has WBD’s space gotten bigger and more beautiful, so has its selection of designer gowns, at different price points to accommodate a variety of budgets. “We added Rosa Clara, another designer out of Spain, and we added new collections of established designers already in the store, such as Matthew Christopher, Stephen Yearick, Lazaro, Jim Hjelm, Alvina Valenta, Tara Keely and Manuel Mota of Pronovias, while buying even deeper into other lines represented heavily in our store,” explains Ruley. Need a little style advice? She notes that the classic ballgown is the “it” style this season, especially when paired with a long veil and colored shoes.
Speaking of which…WBD has also upped its inventory of footwear and accessories—bonus! “We also added new collections of Accents by Alexis which is a local veil and jewelry company that is on the rise and can turn around merchandise for quick brides and for brides that want more customized jewelry for their special day,” Ruley says. Plus, WBD now carries shoes from British footwear firm Benjamin Adams Shoe Co., which offers shoes to coordinate with all WBD gowns, and silk shoes in different colors—“Awesome!” says Ruley
