Houston Trunk Shows: Maggie Sottero @ Brickhouse Bridal

Brickhouse Bridal Maggie Sottero Trunk Show

Four days of delicious Maggie Sottero gowns begins TODAY at Brickhouse Bridal. That’s four full days of trunk show fabulousness, so no excuses if you miss it, Miss bridey-bride! Here’s what we love about Maggie Sottero gowns: The large selection of styles, each one unique and gorgeous–including the wow-worthy shimmer-satin “Darci” (left), with figure-flattering asymmetrical waist and lavishly bustled skirt (plus detachable jeweled halter straps for those of us who welcome a little extra support), and the glamorous “Gail” strapless A-line (right), with fan-pleated neckline and ethereal floral waist embellishment. Plus many, many others, of course.

And here’s what we love about this week’s Maggie Sottero trunk show at Brickhouse Bridal: 10% off the already reasonable price of a Maggie Sottero gown–but only on purchases made during this exclusive four-day show, March. 16-19 !

Call 281.681.3430 to schedule your appointment. And bring a friend!

Brickhouse Bridal Honors Veterans Day With Gown Giveaway

2010 Military Gown Giveaway

You probably know that Houston is home to many military brides-to-be—future brides who either are serving on active duty themselves, or whose fiancés are. Well, this Thursday, Veteran’s Day, Brickhouse Bridal will once again help some of those brides get just a little bit closer to having the wedding of their dreams.

Starting at 10 a.m., Thurs. Nov. 11, Brickhouse will open its doors to military brides as part of the Brides Across America Nationwide Military Gown Giveaway. Salon staff will hand out numbers on a first-come first-served basis, and will bring qualifying brides (you must be engaged and on active duty, or have a fiancé on active duty in Iraq or Afghanistan, and provide verifying documentation) into the store for individual consultations, and assistance selecting the perfect gown from among nearly 250 options.

Military Gown Giveaway

One bit of advice: Brickhouse urges qualifying brides to wait until Thursday to come into the salon to search for their gown, since some gowns that will be featured in the giveaway may differ from those in the store’s regular stock.

We can’t tell you how proud we are of our military brides—proud, too, of Houston’s very own Brickhouse Bridal, for its generous contribution to this worthy cause.

And just to give you a little context, national nonprofit Brides Across America and its partners in cities across the nation have donated more than 5,000 gowns from top designers including Vera Wang, Amsale and Pronovias, over the past five years alone.

Are you a military bride, or do you know someone who is? Call Brickhouse Bridal at 381.681.3430 or e-mail.

And thank you, for all you do.

Brickhouse Bridal’s Sweet Salute to Military Brides

We love our servicemen and women as much as the next American. So we were super excited to discover how Brickhouse Bridal in Spring saluted brides-to-be in the armed forces, as well as the fiancées of men in the military.

The shop knows that a gorgeous gown is the ticket to a perfect wedding day. They also know that the price tag on those gorgeous gowns can be a bit hefty for military brides, who are already giving so much to our country.

So last week, Brickhouse Bridal celebrated Veteran’s Day by joining 17 other bridal shops across the country to participate in Brides Across America. To show their appreciation for our military personnel, this fabulous Spring bridal salon gave away—yes, gave away!—designer wedding gowns to military brides who visited the store on Wednesday, November 11. Brides came to Brickhouse Bridal from all over Texas and even as far away as Minnesota, Louisiana, and Oklahoma.

“It’s so wonderful to see these brides,” says Brickhouse Bridal’s Jill Ivers. “They give so much by serving themselves or supporting their fiancées who have been deployed to Iraq or Afghanistan.”

Before the big day, Brickhouse Bridal selected 100 gowns for military brides to choose from. The most in-demand ones were designed by Pronovias, Rosa Clara, and Henry Roth. The ten dresses that the shop ended up giving away that day ranged from $1,000 to $2,000.

This was the third time that Brickhouse Bridal participated in Brides Across America. They also participated on July 4 and last Veteran’s Day. Between the three events, they’ve given away more than 50 wedding gowns. Talk about giving back!

“The brides are so excited, happy and appreciative to be wedding gown shopping and nearly every single one cries!” says Ivers. With that kind of generosity, we don’t blame them!
