Selling Bridal Gowns, Bridesmaid Dresses and Formal Wear for 30 years
When Patricia and Bill South opened their little wedding shop in February of 1983 it was built on a hope and a prayer! Without any prior experience in the wedding industry Patricia relied on her faith in God to guide her through her venture. Husband and Owner Bill South recalls saying “ We have one year to show a profit or we will have to close the doors” Needless to say thirty years later our doors are still open and our little wedding shop started making a profit within the first month of business.
Patricia South’s Bridal started out as a one room 1500 sqft storefront filled with about 20 wedding gowns one side of the room and 15 bridesmaids on the other, with couple prom dresses in the middle of the store. Over 30 years our little bridal shop has grown to the 11,000 sq ft two story wedding and formal wear center that it is today. This could not have not been done without our strong faith in God, support from our customers and wonderful faithful employees. This is not said to boast about how well we've done through the years but instead to give you a sense of how our faith has guided us along the way. Today we are proud to say that we provide our customers with excellent service and quality products for our brides, bridesmaids, and prom girls!
Over the years Patricia and Bill South knew that they wanted to be able to give back to the community by supporting charities like Becca's Closet by donating bridesmaids and prom dresses to students who could not afford them for their prom or special events. We are currenly hosting a charity event to help raise money for the Susan B. Anthony Recovery Center. Patricia South’s Bridal has given over 200 bridal gowns to deserving brides of the military for veterans day 2008 and to newly engaged brides who lost their jobs in 2009 and couldn't afford a bridal gown.
