Our newest Californian retailer, Archive Bridal, had their grand opening this past weekend on March 29th, 2014. Congratulations to owners Paulette and Maria and we wish you the best for the future!
Paulette and Maria opened up to us and gave us some insight as to what inspired them to open Archive Bridal, “We both learned design, pattern making and sewing from our mom who is an amazing seamstress. Both of us went to college in business and have always been passionate about wedding gown designs and have always wanted our own boutique. Our parents were supposed to retire to Tacloban, Philippines but their fabulous beach house got swept away by the typhoon. This was the catalyst for us to really just go for it. We opened the store down the street from my parents’ house, across from the flower fields near the coast in the beautiful city of Carlsbad. Since we are knowledgeable in fabrics, cuts, etc we chose to carry Paloma Blanca because not only are the designs beautiful but they are made well and use fine fabrics. We also have our own in house wedding gown line that we design and produce.”
If you’re in the Carlsbad, CA area, you can expect to see these Spring 2014 Collection gowns among their fine selection:
