You are invited to the Grand Opening of the Vera Wang Boutique, benefitting Always A Bridesmaid.
Thursday, May 10, 2012
6:00 PM – 8:00 PM
Casa de Novia Bridal Couture is Texas’ first Vera Wang “shop-in-shop” store. For brides, this is a big deal. The chance to select a dream Vera Wang couture gown for the big day.
Casa de Novia will house the Vera Wang gowns in a room devoted entirely to the collection. Dressing rooms nearby, bridal accessories and an expert staff will assist brides in the search for the perfect gown. Dresses start at $3,000, and average $5,000-$7,000. The collection currently includes 20 gowns.
Bring a gently used bridesmaid dress to help Always A Bridesmaid further its mission to provide less fortunate girls with dresses to attend homecoming or prom. There’ll be light bites from Cordua Catering, champagne and an informal fashion show will introduce the Vera Wang Boutique.
Casa de Novia Bridal Couture (translated as “House of the Bride”) currently offers couture gowns and bridal wear by Oscar de la Renta, Monique Lhuillier, Reem Acra and more. The store is also one of only three stores in the country to offer Lanvin Blanche bridal.
“It’s amazing to me to complete our collection with every single designer that I ever dreamed of having,” Katie Woolridge said. “Vera Wang sounds very cliche to some people, but the truth is she’s made a name for her self. She’s not afraid to try something different and push the envelope.”
Casa de Novia’s experience also includes Jimmy Choo glitter heels for brides to try on with their gowns. The luxury shoe brand has partnered with Wheelock to allow customers to get a complete wedding-day look.

About Always A Bridesmaid
Always a Bridesmaid is a non-profit organization started by Keely Thorne of Keely Thorne Events. After watching thousands of dresses dance the night away just once, Keely saw the need to do something more with these frocks. Always a Bridesmaid was founded to assist less fortunate high school senior girls in the Houston area by providing them with donated bridesmaid dresses. Our mission is to provide these young women with the opportunities that others may take for granted…the ability to attend their Homecoming and Prom.
