Forget about the stressors in life when you walk into this bridal boutique, you won’t feel overwhelmed or sales pressure. This is perfect for millennial brides (or any brides, really) that don’t like constant hovering when they first walk in a store. Shop owner Alyssa Palmeri’s approach is with the right selection & time, a bride can find her special dress. With years of experience, she offers fantastic insight and feedback to her clients.
After graduating from the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) in 2015, Alyssa decided to take charge of her life. While living in NYC & the support of her parents, she decided to do something that she loved after working in the clothing & accessories business for years. a.p. bridal is a labor of love where she’s a boss babe, bringing the best bridal gowns to Buffalo for everyone to enjoy.
Alyssa wanted to recreate similar showrooms she’d worked in the Big Apple. It was a success! She created a vibe for her clients to have an individual and catered experience. The shop rocks a modern & romantic aesthetic, where clients feel comfortable to shop without pressure. Dress shopping is stressful. She knows! That’s why she carries a smaller selection in various styles and fabrics. Alyssa has her clients in mind every step of the way.
The main reason the FIT grad wanted to come to the 716 was because the scene is changing. Buffalo’s coming to life with new businesses opening up inspired by different places. Bridal babes get ready because along with the top designers she carries, Alyssa’s NYC experience sets her apart in the industry. She knows what to look for and knows how to guide you in your dress journey.
Everyone is welcome at the boutique, so bring your mom, dad, anyone in your tribe. a.p. bridal shuts down for 1.5 hours, so the bride and her party can sip on some champs or a sparkling beverage, listen to her favorite tunes and try on some gowns. The entire experience inspires everyone to feel at home and enjoy this part of the wedding journey.
Alyssa pays attention to every detail when selecting the designers and pieces she chooses to feature in her store. It’s clear Alyssa handpicks brands for their style, quality and taste, with all the brands highly recognized in the bridal industry.
