Find the perfect gown at Bridal Extraordinaire

Bridal Extraordinaire believes finding the perfect wedding gown should be a personalized and memorable experience that you’ll never forget. Their collection of designer gowns in a beautiful home setting paired with the right stylist is the beginnings of your very own happily ever after.   

This iconic Kansas City wedding dress boutique is family owned and operated by sisters-in-law Whitney Welsh and Colleen Teasdale. 

“The shop was established over 25 years ago and styles brides from the comfort of a creatively converted home. Each cozy room serves as a private bridal suite. We want to welcome you in our home and make you feel like part of our family. We’ve curated a beautiful collection of gowns alongside a gorgeous interior. We think that lovely gowns paired with an extraordinary inviting setting is the ultimate power couple, and we think that brides will agree!” says Welsh and Teasdale. 

The hunt for a dress ends here—be prepared for an experience like none other. 

“We LOVE to pop champagne! At Bridal Extraordinaire, the air is always full of excitement. As brides arrive with friends and family, our goal is to let them know that we are here to celebrate them, and we consider ourselves very lucky to get to be a part of such a special life moment.”

Bridal Extraordinaire’s wedding dress selection spanning from boho to classic is expertly hand-picked by Welsh, Teasdale, and their team of stylists.  

“When looking at designers it is a bit of a puzzle, and many parts have to work together to make the right fit. The quality and fit are key factors, but we truly look at our designers as partners in our business, and we collaborate with them to make brides’ dress dreams come to life. Right now we are seeing a range of style requests—there has been a huge push for the simple chic, but very sophisticated gowns. Girls are looking to wow guests with dramatic silhouettes, leaving lace and beading behind. We are also seeing lots of 3D floral applique—think of delicate pearls or petals popping on a veil or down a long train. This type of dramatic detail adds texture and unexpected visual interest. Either way, brides want the gowns to be memorable.”

Bridal Extraordinaire is committed to exceeding expectations and going above and beyond for all brides.

“Right now we are focusing on taking good care of brides through a difficult year. We are offering services for extended storage, cleaning for gowns being worn twice, off-the-rack options for those couples that decide to elope and virtual appointment options. We just want brides to know that we are here to help them and to celebrate them!”
