Meet our Flower Girl Designer: Ila Bean Bridal
It’s no secret that we are obsessed with all things bridal! However, we do tend to limit our expertise to bridal gowns and accessories. Luckily for our brides, we can rely on local design studio Ila Bean Bridal for some adorable flower girl gowns! Whether you are looking for a pre-made style or something completely custom, there’s something for every little girl to love!
Meet Ila Bean Bridal:
Sara is the designer and maker behind Ila Bean Bridal! Along with her mother, Joyce, Ila Bean Bridal officially launched in 2011. Since then, they’ve dabbled in bridal gowns, bridesmaid dresses, and finally settled down to work on a collection of flower girls dresses available exclusively at Altar Bridal!
From this collection, you can customize almost anything! Or, if you’re interested in something completely unique, Sara can make a completely custom design for you!
A great of example of her amazing custom work is this gorgeous dress designed for a little princess who wanted to look like Romy Schneider from the movie Sissi! The skirt alone took over 10 yards of tulle! Maddie wore her gown to a performance of the Nutcracker ballet at the Kauffman Center.
Sara and her mom love being able to get to know customers on a personal basis as they work on creating gorgeous elements for their wedding days! They were especially honored to get to help sisters Kyle and Margaret on their days almost a year apart! Not only did Sara create flower girl dresses based off her Lucille dress, she also made bow ties for the ring bearers in Margaret’s wedding. In addition to this, Ila Bean Bridal painstakingly removed vintage lace from their mother’s wedding gown and hand placed it on a veil for both brides to wear!
One of the most special weddings Ila Bean Bridal designed for was her own wedding! Sara and Joyce made these sweet flower girl dresses for her nieces for her wedding in 2014.
When Sara isn’t sewing (or managing Altar Bridal), she spends her free time crafting, hanging with her bulldog Lucy and her husband Chris, and making pie.
If you’re looking for a flower girl dress for your special day, we’d love to help! Stop on in and see the collection in store, or feel free to contact us with questions!
