ENCORE BRIDAL SHOWROOM CLOSURE - a message from founder, Julie Jones
I founded Encore Bridal 6 years ago this month and have loved every second of it. Along the way I've met women that have inspired me, given and received many hugs, smiled a lot, touched many gorgeous wedding gowns, made new friends, and learned a whole bunch about myself. Encore Bridal started soley as an e-Boutique until 2009, when our first showroom opened in Manhattan Beach. Then, in 2011 that showroom moved to San Francisco's Union Square. This turned out to be a great move for the company as Encore Bridal was enthusiastically received and business soared.
This year, my husband and I received news that we have long anticipated. I am expecting our first children (yes, twins!). While I never expected to have to take a break from my dream job, things are not going as smoothly as I hoped, and I am not able to keep up the demands of running Encore Bridal at the level our customers and I expect. This has been a very difficult decision. Happily, I will not be completely removed from the wedding world. Encore Bridal's e-Boutique will remain open for a period of time and there are some other exciting prospects post babies (stay tuned).
What this means for you: The Encore Bridal showroom has closed, but we are still selling our preowned wedding dresses and accessories through our e-Boutique. We've even made returns easier and removed the restocking fee. Need help finding the perfect dress or accessory? Call us for a virtual style consultation 310.545.1409 option 4.
