AB At-Home: Virtual Appointments

Say Yes to the Dress Moment

We are so excited to announce the new way of bridal shopping! We are now offering a modern approach to bridal gown shopping experience that complies with CDC regulations and gives the opportunity for brides-to-be to have the experience to try gowns in the safety of their own home.

We want to assist you in preparing for your big day while feeling safe without sacrificing the quality of your shopping experience! Virtual appointments are perfect to help brides who have already been shopping and have a good idea what they are looking for and new brides to dip their toes into bridal shopping.

How to Schedule:
▷ Fill out the “Request an Appointment” form on our website and select the option “Virtual Appointment”
▷ One of our Bridal Stylist will be in contact with you within 48 to confirm your appointment!

How it works:
▷ You will receive an email from your Bridal Stylist to provide details of the virtual consultation.
▷ She will also ask for photos, inspiration, your wedding details, and any specific dresses from our designer’s web pages that you are interested in.
▷ You will be able to shop all our inventory on our Pinterest (@angelasbridalny).
▷ During the consultation, we will show you more of our inventory and will help you select 5 gowns for you to try on at home.

At Home Try-on
▷ There will be a price list for the gowns you selected. Each gown will have two prices. The first if you wanted to reorder the gown in your size and desired color. (Please note that Special order gowns can take up to nine months and this is subject to change during this pandemic.) The second price will be if you wanted to purchase the sample gown off the rack.
▷ We will include fitting & measuring tools (clips, cups, panels, measuring tape) to help you fit yourself in the gowns.
▷ We will send you tutorials on how to clip the dress and how to measure yourself.
▷ At Home Try-ons will be conducted on weekdays only. All gowns must arrive at our shop by 6pm on Friday.

▷ The fee is $250 for the five gowns that will be in your home for a scheduled three days of your choice. This fee covers the cleaning and prepping, shipping and delivery and return and is nonrefundable. However, you will receive $100 of this back if you purchase one of the gowns during your at home try-on.
▷ We also require a credit card on file for any damages to dresses.
▷ Your card will only be charged additional fees if the gowns are not returned or are damaged in some way.
▷ If you decide you want to purchase the sample sent to your home, the card on file will be charged prior to the return of the other dresses.
▷ Other terms and conditions do apply.

We are so excited to start offering this service to our brides. If you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to reach out!

Two Stores Become One Perfect Bridal Shopping Experience

Two Stores Become One Perfect Bridal Shopping Experience

In 2016, I opened A Love Story Bridal in Troy. From the moment the doors opened, everyone who came in could feel its warmth and the way it instantly felt like home to every bride who walked in. In Angela’s Bridal’s move to Troy, we wanted to achieve the same welcoming atmosphere.

My teams are passionate and professional, but as an owner of small businesses, I started to feel a little spread thin and therefore we started to experience some operational and customer service challenges. So a decision was made to choose quality over quantity. To become one central unit, bringing the team closer together and building a stronger foundation for our level of service and operations, in addition to the joy and fun of helping a bride find her gown – there is so much that happens behind the scenes to make their day special.

We want our brides to have trust in us, feel the warmth from us and confidence in themselves. We have a philosophy: to listen, educate, advise and empower our customers so that the decision process is organic and authentic. we are helping them achieve the look that embodies who they are. They are the ones making the decision on their purchase.

As a result, Angela’s Bridal and A Love Story Bridal have become one: Having curated the best selection of inventory from both stores for brides to select from.

We are sad to say goodbye to our quaint river street shop, but at the same time, we are so excited about this next chapter for Angela’s Bridal.

This change will increase our staff to better serve and care for our Brides. Our operations and customer service will be stronger than ever before. We are so excited about this change and we cannot wait to see all our beautiful brides from A Love Story Bridal again, at Angela’s and welcome more Angela’s Brides to our AB family than ever!

We really want to start this union off with a bang! To celebrate our two stores becoming one, and Valentine’s Day, we want you to share your love story with us! We are asking brides to give us a brief description of how they met their fiance to get a gift card to use on their special order bridal gown from February 11 through the 15!

Signing up is easy! Simply fill out our appointment request form under the “Appointment” tab. In the section for questions or comments, describe your met-cute and we will have your gift card waiting for you at your appointment!

Happy wedding planning and we cannot wait to hear your love stories!

Feature Dress- Pronovias “Ozana”

Albany Bride Guide - By Angela's Bridal

Feature Dress- Pronovias "Ozana"

With our Pronovias trunk show quickly approaching next week, we are featuring one of our first 2017 gowns to arrive in the store- Pronovias “Ozana”! We are struck by its simplistic elegance.

There’s something so alluring about the simplistic elegance of this bridal gown. Yes, gowns with gorgeous embroidered lace, and bead work detail are stunning (they’re all beautiful they’re wedding gowns!), but there is also something dramatic about a clean tulle ballgown. The drama comes from it’s simplicity rather than all the bells and whistles. It is truly a classic bridal gown. That was one of the main reasons the dress caught my eye in Barcelona!

The fit was another reason I loved this dress. This dress hugs a bride’s figure past the natural waist and then poofs out giving the “bridal” feel. It is extremely flattering, featuring a sweetheart neckline and rouched tulle bodice. This gown has such a classic “black and white” picture feel. You can just imagine a bride being photographed on her wedding day and when you look back on it after 20 years, it would still be just as gorgeous.

The buttons down the zipper give the perfect delicate detail to the back. You can easily pair this gown with some amazing statement accessories! Let the sparkle come from your jewelry, the dress speaks for itself.

We are so excited for our Pronovias Trunk Show next weekend! We have limited appointments left, so call today to ensure you appointment. You do not want to miss these fabulous gowns from Barcelona Spain.
