A few months ago we received a visit from Wedding Planner Tara Melvin of Perfect Planning Events. She selected Soliloquy Bridal Couture to be featured on an episode of her youtube series You’re Cordially Invited, a video blog inspired to introduce and recognize some of the top wedding professionals in the Washington, DC Metro area. We are so honored to be selected and featured! Take a look Below…

– At 8:35 Miriam discusses how Soliloquy Bridal Couture can still assist in finding the gown of your dreams, even if it’s not in the boutique, with Soliloquy In-House Design.

– “I Like Designers who are accessible.  I want to be able to pick up the phone and call them on behalf of my brides. I can talk to any one of them at any given time. And it’s not that they’re so small, it’s that they’re accessible people”

– The Excitement surrounding the “Return of the Ball Gown!”

– At 14:20 Miriam advises how many should be part of the wedding dress entourage and why.

– “Ten or Less” – the number of bridal gown try-ons it should take a good consultant to find a bride’s gown!
