Wedding Wednesday: Buyer Beware

So, you’re looking for the perfect dress but don’t want to break the bank! We’ve all been there. Did you know that you can purchase a counterfeit wedding dress online for next to nothing? Sounds wonderful doesn’t it? Unfortunately, its too good to be true!!  Even if you DO get the dress you purchased, chances are its a knockoff version made of POOR quality material and you’re going to be VERY disappointed. All bridal manufacturers sell through retail shops. Make sure you do your research, and NEVER buy online!!

Have you ever had this happen to you? The International Bridal Manufacturers’  Association wants to know about it! Go to for more information!!

We at Ann’s Classic Affairs are not associated with the  International Bridal Manufacturers’  Association but we HATE it when a customer comes in and tells us about the “perfect” dress they found online that never came.  Whether you purchase a dress from us or somewhere else, but lets be honest…we want you to come to us, PLEASE don’t buy any formal wear online.

Wedding Wednesday: We Just Went to Market!!

We just got back from Spring 2015 Market. What an exciting time in the bridal and formal wear industry. How can you pick? The possibilities are endless. But, we did it!! Coming at the start of 2015, Ann’s Classic Affairs will be welcoming our newest collection of dresses.

This year our brides will see more illusion lace on the back of dresses. Lace is still very popular for weddings in a fitted dress or a ball gown. More dresses will have shoulders of lace. A few more lace sleeves are available to our brides in a variety of lengths. White, Ivory, Champagne, and occasionally Blush Pink are available for color options.

Prom will follow bridal very closely this year. More illusion lace on these dresses can be found. This year a two-­piece midriff prom dress will be available. Here at Ann’s we offer a “modesty panel” for girls who want the look but feel more secure with coverage.

As always bridesmaids come in a variety of colors and sizes to order. Our new samples will showcase some of the popular colors for the new year. We are excited to show you what’s new for 2015.

Stop by the store and find out more details. Happy planning!
