Words from our brides…

I went here during the trunk show and the whole experience was amazing. This was my first time trying on bridal gowns so I really didn’t know what I wanted or what would look best on me. I was so well taken care of and they helped bring dresses that would look good for my body shape. I walked out with a beautiful gown and I am so beyond happy this was such a great first experience all around! I’d definitely would recommend coming here!

Elite Secrets Bridal was absolutely wonderful in every capacity. My bridesmaids and I had such a fun-filled day trying on dresses. Tonya was so comfortable, helpful, and accommodating with everything we needed!! After I purchased my dress, they completed fittings and alterations and bustling for my dress as well as my partners. They had a full team to do the hair and makeup for my partner and I’s bridal party of 15 women, 2 MOB’s, and both of us! Tonya’s talents for makeup were incredible and we were so happy the day of. We highly recommend them!!

Beyond extraordinary gowns, shopping with Elite Secrets Bridal supports a worthy cause! A portion of the proceeds from retail sales of the bridal trunk shows will go to For 3 Sisters, a Maryland-based nonprofit organization with a mission to raise awareness and improve the quality of life for men and women affected by breast cancer.

“For 3 Sisters’ commitment to men and women affected by breast cancer is unparalleled,” said LaTonya Turnage, bridal expert, and owner of Elite Secrets. “The organization's core program, Road to Resources, provides resources for everyday needs so those affected can focus on fighting, surviving, and healing. Working with For 3 Sisters and knowing that our dresses are making a difference in the lives of those affected by cancer is everything to me.”
