Amazing experience!

Suzanna was amazing and really made wedding shopping an easy and enjoyable experience! I told her what I liked, and bought the first dress I tried on. She knows what she’s doing! They also offer great discounts on bridesmaid dresses, invitations, and so much more. I spent a little more than my dress budget, but I’ll be able to counter the cost with all the discounts they offer!

Incredible experience

Coming to this shop made me feel like I was on a tv show like Say Yes to the Dress. The shop is beautiful and has a ton of dresses at different price points. The team there is so polite and really pays attention to what you want without being pushy. I highly recommend!

Store Owner

Have you ever just known you would be good at something, that you could really be good at a job? That’s the way I felt when I walked into The Something Blue Shoppe, and learned it was for sale. I knew immediately that I wanted to buy the 20 year old business. I knew I would love working with brides and all things to do with brides. That was over 30 years ago, and I’ve enjoyed every minute I’ve owned this store. The relationships made with our customers, their families, our amazing staff, and the wonderful designers I have the privilege of knowing has been a true blessing.

Being the mother of 3 daughters, I knew the importance of giving brides a quality product, at a fair price and treating them with the respect that every customer deserves. That was and has always been my goal. I want every bride who walks in our door to be treated as I would want my daughters treated.

Over the years, the bridal industry has undergone numerous changes. Styles changes, fabrics change and wedding ideas change, but brides still have a common goal. That is to find the perfect gown to wear when they marry the love of their life. I want brides to know they can trust us to protect and cherish that dream and all it entails, just as much as she does.


Being the manager of a bridal store was not what I thought my career would be, but once I stepped into Bridal, I knew my career path was forever altered. For 8 years I have had the pleasure to lead and grow what I consider to be one of the leading bridal and prom teams in the industry. I really enjoy going to see the new creations from the leading bridal and prom designers and manufacturers and choosing what gowns we will offer our brides and prom guests in The Something Blue Shoppe. The most fulfilling part of my job is seeing a bride fall in love with a gown that I handpicked for our store. When she says “yes”, I feel pride that I’ve played a part in making her dream wedding one step closer to reality.

Office Manager

I am the office manager of The Something Blue Shoppe. While working at the shop I have also been the prom store manager as well as a bridal consultant. The most exciting thing about working here is that I have been able to see our customers transition from little girl pageant participants, to high school prom attendees and then on to be brides! Outside of work I am the mother of two and grandmother of five. I love to spend time with my family and I also love to watch college sports.
